    Too bad Niall is gone.

      Is he? Are you SURE? He’s not dead, just sent to the realm Warlow came from. A realm Niall has already entered and exited once this season.

    Why Eric didn’t just command Willa not to attack her father? We didn’t get to understand what motives Eric has. Just avenge the Governor? Because that’s what I understood. His words when he fed her that man was very cloudy, I didn’t undrestand what he really wanted… Why not prove him through Willa that they can co-exist? Such a wasted opportunity, I am beginning to doubt about Eric’s mind… Anyone else has a point about this?

    PS. The scene where he turned Willa and his words about a millenium of wisdom, the whole f*cking scene was the most emotionally charged and intense scene I have ever seen in movies or series and not only for vampires… I was shaking! It is easily the best scene of TB! And I am glad that we get horror scenes with Season 6. Making a hole to his neck with the cross… Now that was… AMAZING!

      Are you asking what Eric’s motive is as far as turning Willa and sending her back to her father? It’s two-fold: first, he turned the person Burrell loves most into the thing he hates most. That’s a direct attack on Burrell. Second, this forces Burrell to see vampires through a different lens and, perhaps, will help change his mind about them being monsters.

        Yes, but he should commanded her to behave like human to her father to show that they are not so different. He just left her go home, a newbie vamp and of course it turned out as it did. It was such a wasted opportunity to make Burrell see things differently, don’t you think? Even his own daughter attacking him… Well, that’s going to make him even angrier… Although, Eric maybe wanted to show Burrell that they can’t help their nature, seeing his own daughter attacking him… But that is not going to serve the goal of Burrell changing his mind… Right?

          I don’t know that commanding a brand new vampire not to let her fangs out when she smelled her father’s blood would have worked. Up until then, she was doing great. He took precautions by making sure she fed on the donor first, but Eric couldn’t have known that Burrell would be bleeding.

            Oh well, doesn’t matter. We will see how it ends. OMG, this is by far the best season of the show. Ought to draw back those who are bitching for seasons 4+5…

        I can’t see Burrell changing his mind about Vampires altogether just because his little girl now is one. You care about your family more than about strangers, right? And I don’t think Eric is naive enough to believe that.
        But it serves the purpose of hurting the Gov, and it will be a distraction for Burrell, so perhaps Eric’s goal was just to play on time. While the Gov is trying to figure out how to deal with his daughter – and keep it under a lit – he will have difficulties to focus on eradicating Vampires. Imagine Willa talks to the press – and shows off her new fangs! That alone could harm Burrell tremendously. If she’s taken to the camp Eric can find her, could be another incentive.
        On the other hand : Willa is now Eric’s to take care of, and he has his hands full. Seems a bit desperate and hasty to add one more problem.

    Why was Ben/Warlow spitting out Niall’s blood?

    • Vampiremaniac

      July 7, 2013 at 10:53 pm

      That’s a very good question… And how can he eat human food?

      • Madeleine

        July 8, 2013 at 2:49 am

        He’s part-fae, fae eat human food. It appears Ben has all the powers of both Vampires and faeries, that would mean he can live of regular food and blood. I’m just wondering why there are not more of his kind, if Lilith wanted her children to walk in the sun (and why else would she turn a faery?) and succeeded turning one – why didn’t she continue? Why didn’t Warlow?

    • Mel

      I’m guessing it’s because Ben/Warlow is part fae, so he doesn’t like faery blood.

      • Madeleine

        July 8, 2013 at 2:46 am

        What about Hot Wings? He did kill those faeries, right? And there wasn’t that much blood on the floor, where did it go if Ben didn’t drink it?

        • Mel

          That still needs to be explained, of course, and I assumed that Warlow had consumed the blood of those faeries. Now, I don’t know…when Niall dispatched Claude to the light, he left just a few drops of blood behind. Warlow may have done the same, or it has something to do with Niall’s blood specifically.
