Sam Merlotte as Mayor was a good idea
Wrong: Was Sam Merlotte in this season at all? If so, what did he do? Poor Sam Trammell. For years, I've had people associated with "True Blood" say how great he is and yet I've barely seen any indication of this at all. And in the final season, the writers just surrendered and wrote him an exit in which he pretty much shrugged and drove away with a character whose name nobody remembers.

Wrong: What was the point in making Sam Mayor exactly? Seriously "True Blood" writers. Was it just an extension of his character caring for the community? Because if that's the case there were other ways of showing it. We're glad Sam got to drive off into the sunset and get out of godforsaken Bon Temps, but wasn't that slightly irresponsible of him?
