Season 2 was a litte disappointing as the focus of the storyline got away from the vampires. This season has introduced some new creatures (werewolves and other shape shifters) but has mainly focused on the TB vampire lore. Bill has been kidnapped and is the clutches of the Vampire King of Louisianna. Eric has asserted his power and has usurped his Queen. Sookie's powers are being expanded and we learn that mind reading is only a small sampling of her powers.
This season is a lot more fun as Bill and Sookie have to re-kindle what has been lost. Jason is still lost. The werewolves, though a part of this season, are not the unstoppable creatures that they normally are. In fact they are only slightly stronger than a basic shape shifter. The one werewolf that has some morals and has befriended Sookie is the best of the new characters.
A bunch of characters that were prevelent in the first two seasons have already been disposed of but Lafayette and Tara still remain. I am assuming we will learn what Sookie really is by the season's end and a showdown with the Vampire King is probably in the cards. I am sure it will end with another cliff-hanger which will be bigger than the first two seasons. Hopefully, we won't have to wait so long this time for Season 4!
