karmaschild: (True Blood)

One of the changes between the books and the television show that I really appreciated was the fact that they did not kill Lafayette off right away on the show. I thought it was such a waste for him to die so soon in the books and having him around longer on the show just makes me happy.

I love his relationship with Tara. He is caring without being overly gushy and sentimental. He's a good friend to Sookie and Jason. I also love his interactions with his mother. She's a riot.

I have liked pretty much everything that was done with him so far, except his current storyline. I do not care for Lafayette the 'Medium'. In a show chock full of supernatural, there's really no reason to take an otherwise well rounded character and slap on a super power for no reason. Lafayette was just fine as the wise-ass, fantastically gay, short order cook at Merlotte's.

Amen!

I love Lala and I am glad that Ball kept him around in the show but I wish he just kept him around as the wise-ass, gay friend for the residents of Bon Temps.

Towards the end of last season I was ready to call the Winchester brothers in to deal with all of the possessions that were going around. Seriously. There's just too many story lines going on as it is. We didn't need to add Lafayette being a Medium.
