I'm glad they picked it up where it left off. The Bill & Sam scene --wow! Eric with the dancer--holy cow! (Didn't realize the snippets they showed over the last few weeks were actually to fill in gaps prior to the season beginning!) And then poor Bill with the werewolves...but I thought vampire blood was supposed to be poison to them--well in the books at least?? That confused me. When Sophie-Anne went after Eric, I jumped! I'm still annoyed at her, though, for putting Eric in danger with the selling of V.
