Can Sam shift into humans too? He''s killed humans, isn''t that the rule?\
Tommy is adorable.
No, you have to have killed a blood relative.
I would kill a blood relative to gain that power. Am I a horrible person?
No, R2, of course not. In fact, I think it''s worse to kill people who aren''t your relatives. But it''s only homicide, either way.

That depends on whom you ask, Ms. Anthony.
Depends on the relative too.%0D
I would shift into Alcide and then fuck myself!
The rule is killing a family member who is also a shifter. In Tommy''s case, he killed his mom [accidentally?].\
Luna''s mother died giving birth to her hence she "killed" her mother and became a skinwalker.
What a stupid made-up rule! What kind of physical change would take place from killing another shifter who was a blood relative that would enable one to shift into humans? Just an arbitrary plot device that makes no sense whatsoever. And yes, I realize that all of True Blood is pretty ridiculous, but even fantasies have to make a modicum of sense.

It''s a supernatural rule. That means it doesn''t have to make sense!
Apparently the rule is a staple of the skinwalker legend, like vampires not being able to go into the sun.
It''s a fictional rule, so of course it''s made up.
I love that the queen at R8 wants shapeshifting to make scientific sense.
My question: Where the hell is tonights new thread?!?%0D
Who [m] did Sam kill?
I think that Sam may have only killed Maryann the Maenad
No, Sam has a murderous back story from Season 2.
WHERE THE FUCK IS THIS WEEK''S TRUE BLOOD THREAD?!?%0D\
I would turn into James Franco and then stick my finger right up my ass.
What is going on with all of the TB threads ("Season 6"; "07/22") disappearing?!
Did someone start a flame war? Insult webbee? Post anti-vamp comments?!
What are you linking to, r20? The thread won't load and it crashes my iPad.
R20 is linking to the TB Season 6 link that has disappeared for some reason. Does anyone know why it's gone?
R8, it's very much like the Highlander mythology that if you kill another immortal you gain more power.
Can't say for sure. There wasn't a flame war raging that's for sure. I don't know if it had anything to do with the many posts regarding Joe Manganiello. The on going conversation about him was pretty civilized. People agreeing to disagree, even if some of the comments were on the mean side. I certainly was guilty of posting a few of those but nothing outrageous. One of the last posters used the other F word and was posing as a straight frat boy type. That may have triggered an automatic shut down of the thread. It's too bad because some of the posters were funny and engaging.
Thanks R24. The last time I checked the Season 6, everything seemed pretty time and good-natured to me. It's a shame because there were a lot of great observations.
I feel you, r25. Anyway, this week brings a new episode and I'm sure someone will start a new thread for TB. Hope to see you there.
Didn't the girlfriend shift into someone else and shifted back on live TV?
Can someone explain why they used a mirror last night to look under the True Blood truck to see if any Vampires were escaping if Vampires DON'T HAVE A REFLECTIION?
In season one, in the scene after Sookie drinks Bill's blood and is feeling better, she asks him what effect his blood will have on her. She also asks some questions about established Vampire mythology, like garlic being repellant to them and the no reflection in a mirror bit. Harris turned the Vampire myth on it's ear and invented new facts about Vampires and did away with others. The no reflection is one of those she chose to discount.
But hasn't there been at least one scene where someone looked in the mirror and didn't see someone?
I don't recall one, r30. Perhaps someone who has read the books can answer your question.
