Just how many subplots swirled about in tonight's season premiere? I think I lost count at 32. While it's always good to meet new characters (like Vampire Authority rep Nora, who gives off a distinct Rachel Weisz vibe) and see others get extended time (always good to see Pam!), the Bon Temps community is getting a bit crowded -- and a bit hard to follow. You're not sure what you're supposed to care about most: Sookie, who used to be the main character and is now often shifted to the background?

Marnie, er, Antonia is in full-on attack mode. High-yo, silver, away! "The sun" -- Jessica Call Bill what you will: A boorish politican, heartless-on-the-surface ruler, gold card member of Jos. A Bank. But he had a seemingly good plan to combat Marnie/Antonia's plot against all of vampire kind. And he did it fairly quickly. American Congress -- take note. MY ANTONIA: Basically, the whole Marnie as Antonia's rise to power and fast plan to wreak vengeance against vampires was the best part of this slow episode.

Lime Kiln Middle School seventh-grader Michelle Wong cannot talk with the animals, but she can imagine what they might say, and she figures few would have kind words about last year's oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. She recently wrote a short play about a few sea creatures affected by the spill that was submitted in the Arena Stage 12th Annual Student 10-Minute Play Competition. With more than 800 entries submitted from area middle and high schools, Michelle didn't figure she had much of a chance at winning.
