The hardest thing about re-watching season 2 of True Blood whilst watching season 5 is Steve Newlin. Especially because I’m watching with people who have never seen the show before. I start giggling uncontrollably EVERY TIME HE IS ONSCREEN.
In his very first S2 appearance, he’s arguing with Nan Flanagan on TV. It took every ounce of self-control I possess not to shout, “NAN FLANAGAN, MEET THE NEW NAN FLANAGAN!!!”
And the first time he meets Jason, at the end of their conversation he lays his hand on Jason’s cheek with a gentle “May God’s holy light shine upon you.” COME ON, TRUE BLOOD. YOU’RE JUST TRYING TO MAKE ME DIE SCREECHING NOW.
