*** What. The. Hell. Are. You. Talking. About. WHEN are men portrayed as more stupid than women on this show? Especially when THE MAIN HEROINE is often considered the stupidest one in the gang, and that's including her comically-braindead brother. Tara, Jessica, and Arlene don't strike me as Mensa material either. There's plenty of ditziness among both genders, but you have it in your head that ''True Blood'' is on some kind of StrawFeminist {{Misandry}} kick that I just plain don't see.

** The area around the equator would be the most popular with vampires. Imagine a vampire living in Alaska, he would have to remain in his coffin for the majority of the day during the summer. So they'd group around the population centers in the places where the amount of sunshine doesn't vary too much throughout the year.

** Or they just don't care about having a license. They just drive and handle the cops when stopped.


Added DiffLines:

** Arlene has a daughter, she might have kept their clothes.

* There are billions of humans in the world, and they are scattered all over the place, in all climates, everywhere. Now, by contrast the show states there are only several million vampires in the world... Why do they populate the American South/Southwest so densely? It seems like all the most powerful ones, as well as the seat of their Authority itself, end up there. Why? Out-of-universe, it's obviously because that's where the show is set, but InUniverse, what do they love about the South so much? It's far from being the most populated part of even that particular country; the weather isn't particularly friendly to vampires (the ones in ThirtyDaysOfNight had the right idea) and it's certainly not where they originate or have lots of history. So why do so many end up in Texas/Louisiana/Mississippi?

** [[FridgeBrilliance This might explain]] why the whole "eternal virgin" thing was quietly dropped after the second season, and Jessica has been shown having and enjoying sex without a problem.

*** Alternatively, the similarity might make it more difficult to differentiate the other human's form from the skinwalker's own, and thus more difficult and dangerous to change back. Imagine, for example, if the skinwalker mostly transforms back, but fails to transform an organ or two, which the body then rejects.

** The writers don't know how hymens work, probably. It couldn't "grow back" because... that's just not how it works, yeesh. Yoour hymen literally does not break. I'm just going to [[http://fuckyeahsexeducation.tumblr.com/FAQ leave this here.]]

** Fairies can teleport. Everything we've been told about Jason's lacking the power was a lie. Or the writers/set designers what not completely forgot the lay out of the bathroom and that there was no way for Jason to be there.

* Why is nobody afraid of Warlow? The show originally makes a big deal of Bill being no match for Eric, and Bill is treated like he has brass balls for talking shit to the 300 year old Malcolm. So why is he able to take on the 6000 year old Warlow? for reference, Russell Edgington was half of that and people were shit-scared of him; fighting him wasn't even an option. And for that matter, why isn't Warlow more badass? Russell could chain the magister to a table in less than a second and stop a speeding car with one hand, yet somehow Bill is able to fight Warlow when the term Cub Stomp Battle doesn't do his asskicking at the hands of Russell justice?

* It's probably a case of ForgotHisPowers or TheyJustDidntCare, but in fairness: none of the vamps that fight Warlow are known for being shy about fighting stronger vampires. And who knows? Maybe the rules for a fae/vamp are different, and they don't get stronger as they age.

age. And Warlow, though older, is still a poofter compared to Russell, who was a hyper aggressive maniac.
