Is it just me?

Or is there an entire Ph.D. thesis to be wrested from the use of possessives in Season 2 of True Blood?


  1. Hmmmm, I hadn’t noticed. I did, however, actually howl with laughter when the tickets for Burlington, VT came out.

  2. Just off the top of my head:

    Sam to Maryann: “This is MY town”

    Bill (to everyone – not just in S2): “Sookie is MINE.”

    Sookie (to various vamps): “I am Bill’s”

    Sookie to Maryann: “My town/my friends/my house/Gran’s dress”

    Maryann: “My husband”

    Etc. Possession and surrender are big themes…

    And yes, howled myself, esp. as Sookie had absolutely no idea at first what the significance was. She’s dear, but she’s a bit dim.
