And every once in a while...

I have to make note of something about True Blood. Which I ordinarily look forward to seeing, enjoy while it's in front of me, and then promptly don't think about until it's time for the next ep.

This week, however, I have to note how squeeful I am about Bill finally figuring out that fear of screwing up as Jessica's maker is no excuse for not trying.

Yes, this responsibility was forced on him, and she's been keeping it together amazingly well in his absence. But the fact remains that Jessica is barely eighteen, from an extremely circumscribed mortal background, and she needs parenting if she's going to make it.

I was getting pretty steamed that the only time Bill apparently even thought about her this season was a psychic call for help that she didn't even know how to interpret. Once he was out of that immediate danger, a phone call to the poor kid was hardly going to be looked at askance by Russell and his hangers-on! So when he walked in the door and immediately told her to pack up and leave, I was about ready to hand Tara a stake and cheer her on. His culpability for putting Sookie in the hospital was limited, but how he treated Jessica was all on him.

So yay Jessica for speaking up for her needs and refusing to leave! It turned him around quickly enough that I think he would have regretted booting her once he got a bit out of the funk he was in, but God knows what might have happened to her in the meantime.

Bill didn't want a kid, but he's got one, and from where I sit it's done at least as much to make him a worthwhile person as being involved with Sookie. And is, quite frankly, way more interesting to watch.

I always enjoy watching, but most of the time Jessica is the only character I really have an investment in. Which is weird, since she's entirely original to the show, but whatever.

*giggle* See my next post for my stunning lack of clue as to what really constitutes that...
