Poor Russell...I really think the show lost it's way...it was bad ass the first two seasons. This season was pretty good except for the whole "Lilith" chanting...really quite annoying. Without Russell it would have been pretty bland.
That fire breathing spirit "ifrit" was pretty lame. I don't know what happened...think the writers hit a road block.
All in all I'll still watch it cuz I've always been into vampires.
Actually the most memorable episode was with Jessica, Hoyt and Stackhouse.
Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.
Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.
