Spoilered the whole thing just to make things easy, though you're pretty stupid if you are reading this thread and haven't caught up.
The ending of this episode was f*cking insane. O.o;;
Like, REALLY F*CKING INSANE.
I think it was a great choice to have Nan Flanigan the one watching the program, too. Since she is kinda a symbol of the modern vampire, Russel's message was way stronger seeing her stunned reaction.
And I'm betting that this means Eric is about to get WAY more funding. :P
As for other characters...
I'm kinda done with Bill/Sookie. I like the pairing in general, but I don't think either character can grow anymore with them together. Especially not now that Sookie is wising up and focusing on her own strength. The only problem is that I have no clue where you could take Bill without her, since his only link to any other character is with Jessica. And she is interesting enough without being fuel for Bill. Not gonna lie, some of my favorite moments are Jessica or Hoyt/Jessica.
I want to see more of Alcide. A LOT more of him. >:)
I LOVED the fact that Pam got more screen time.
I'm continuing to love Jesus/Lafayette.
This is the first episode Tara didn't really annoy me in.
Jason has always been really frickin' annoying, and he still is. He's seriously one of my least favorite characters.
Hadley clearly has some serious issues.
Sam's brother is annoying the hell out of me. As is Sam, for that matter. And Arlene. :/
I like the new waitress, though I want to hate her at the same time.
I'll always love Eric, though he was pretty weak in this episode.
