Jess and Hoyt's reunion worked
Wrong: For years now, "True Blood" hasn't known what to do with Deborah Ann Woll or with Jessica and so she's had to make the most of every little morsel, giving an absurdly full-blooded portrayal of an utterly bloodless character. And "True Blood" gave Woll 100 percent of the heavy-lifting in Hoyt's return and she pulled off her end of things. And it wasn't Jim Parrack's fault that Hoyt's return meant almost nothing. The writers erased his memory and they also erased my memory.

Wrong: In theory, this could have been great. Sure, most viewers have forgotten how sweet their initial affair was, but a Hoyt and Jessica reunion had the potential to be more emotional than Sookie and Bill getting back together. Instead, Hoyt's became such a sourpuss (we get it - losing his memory made him moody) you wonder if Jessica realizes this isn't even the man she first fell in love with. If the show had shown a sign that "sweet" Hoyt could return? Then you've got something.
