I was taking some time off last week and didn't get a chance to do my weekly "True Bloodtalkback post. (Which, as always, is here so you can discuss the show until Leslie Gornstein's recap goes up on our Monkeys as Critics blog.) But things are getting pretty crazy in Bon Temps, between the vampires, witches, werewolves, ghosts, shifters, etc. What did everybody think of tonight's episode? And how is everyone feeling about season 4 at the three-quarter mark?
