The only sad part is that they did not cast Morena Baccarin instead. I mean, really.  

Short explanation:
I'm convinced Salome is an Originalist who takes those religious texts literally.
She's the one who is the traitor, not Nora (Nora just exists because they wanted someone to fuck Eric
up against a wall, really. The rest of her part could have been Nan's part and I'm still confused why she
Salome is ancient, must know Russell and just the fact that she will be Roman's lover and is the biblical
Salome at the same time is suspicious enough. She totally seduced Roman to distract him from the fact
that she was always working for her faith/cult. She'll try to do the same with Bill and Eric and I think she
did it with Nora.
My theory is that she has been destroying everything from within, leaning back while Nora went a little crazy
when her maker and brother constantly got sentenced for their bullshit. She lets everyone fight and fuels it,
while distracting Roman with sex. She's probably waiting for Russell to recover right now.


Assassin’s Tango

Salome # Pete Doherty
And from the flames, appears Salome
I stand before her amazed As she dances and demands The head of john the baptist on a plate

Hunter’s Kiss # Rasputina
No, I was not dreaming, I was next to death.
I have never felt like this before, felt the flaming arrows of the hunter’s kiss.

Love is blind # Pulp
Ah, you take all their love and you suck out their eyes and then you rip out their hearts
And you eat their insides, Yeah, then you just walk away with a smile on your face

How soon is now # The Smiths
I am the son and the heir of a shyness that is criminally vulgar
I am the son and heir of nothing in particular

House of the rising sun # The Animals
There is a house in New Orleans they call the Rising Sun and it's been the ruin of many a man

Honey and the moon # Joseph Arthur
If you weren't real I would make you up; You're the honey and the moon that lights up my night

Me and the devil # Gil Scott Heron
Standing in the ruins of another mans life, I am am Death to the people of the light

Born to die # Lana del Ray
Feet don't fail me now, Take me to the finish line
Choose your last words, This is the last time
Cause you and I, we were born to die

Sacred # Depeche Mode
Trying to sell the story, of love's eternal glory… Sacred … Holy
To  put it in words, To write it down, That is walking on hallowed ground

Eden # Hooverphonic
Did I ever think of you… As my enemy
I never tried to reach, I never tried to reach your eden



So far, I love the character of Salome and I'm really hoping she turns out evil and kills certain characters.
Though, not the authority. I like the authority, they're the only good part that's left of True Blood.

My only complaint: You cast Salome and you go for a European actress, when Morena Baccarin exists?
Whitewashing much, Mr. Ball? What's next, white Jesus?

I mean, come on...

She's ok with nudity:

She's also more seductive, I think

She'd just make a great vampire!

This also counts as an argument. Yes, it absolutely does, shut up

And she's much better at slapping people!

Long story short: If you know THIS picture exists and you still wouldn't cast her, I'm judging you.

Please leave your theories and comments below.

Even with the warning, I was still totally not ready for Nathan's beautiful butt. *sigh* A girl could stare at that all day. And yes, now that you've mentioned it, I absolutely agree.

Definitely coming back to grab this. Thanks!!

He is the only reason I'm watching Castle. And I'm not even attracted to him, I just like him and his characters a lot .

I've been a fan of his since he was on One Life To Live. He's attractive, yeah, and I definitely enjoy the roles he's played. But it's all about his personality, I think, for me. He seems like such a great person!
nemesisofamornemesisofamor on June 25th, 2012 10:36 pm (UTC)
He does. The detective lady is a drag, though. Totally stiff, dull and such a Mary Sue! Plus, I have friends at the police. Women there NEVER wear high heels and dramatically made-up hair. Especially in an US police department that shit wouldn't get you anywhere.

Stana's okay. She's not really why I watch the show. It's more about Nathan and the other two cops, played by Jon Huertas and Seamus Dever. And Castle's relationships with his mom and daughter.

I love the selection you've got! Though I know nothing about the fandom itself.

You mentioned Nathan Fillion, okay?

Regarding casting... was she available at the time?
nemesisofamornemesisofamor on June 25th, 2012 10:18 pm (UTC)
Thanks! Morena does one show, Homeland, but she doesn't have a real character on it. She's just the wife someone cheats on. So I'd really love for her to play fascinating characters again. On shows that are not about to be cancelled, that is. But yeah, she would be great. I've seen Salome a week ago and she seemed well played. This week, it was so transparent, I could see her being the big bad villanous seductress from a mile away. Another woman Eric will violoate and Bill will blame for all of his problems. After they're done ruining Pam some more.

I was thinking the EXACT same thing about Morena when they first introduced Salome! Glad to know I'm not the only one. I would love to see her in more roles, she's amazing.
nemesisofamornemesisofamor on June 26th, 2012 10:32 pm (UTC)
Right? But True Blood is so bad this season... maybe it was better that she didn't enter a sinking ship.
Everything & Nothingjeffys_gurl27 on June 27th, 2012 02:07 am (UTC)
I'm really glad that they brought the authority in because I think they're really interesting. But Nora...not so much. And everything happening back in Bon Temps isn't so enthralling either. I thought Jason and Jessica would be fun, but that story line is already getting dull.
nemesisofamornemesisofamor on June 29th, 2012 02:45 pm (UTC)
Yeah... my theory is that Salome "sponsored" Nora's chancellorship so Nan wouldn't get the job, since she's been with them forever and was highly competent. But Salome always was in control of Roman, who is in control of everything. She didn't want to have to fight too many rationals and there's already a few of them. Except for Kibwe, he just seems to wanna set all male traitors/criminals free, but has never spoken up for Nora and Nan, who were only in trouble because of those men.
Someone seems to have convinced Roman against Nan and Salome is the only thing who could have, which is impressive, in a way. Plus she obviously sexed (sorry, convinced) him into bringing in her Sanguinista students, not killing anyone who could be her supporter for a "new direction" and the Newlin thing must have been her plan, too.
The most transparent thing about this is that Nan seems to have figured out something about "fractions" and who was causing them. It wasn't Nora, Nora only was angry that her brother and maker were on trial. So that only leaves Salome. She was covering her tracks, killing everyone who knew too much. Nora will be next.

I love her! Loved to see her on something besides Firefly and Serenity. ANd oh Mel looks yummy naked. :)
nemesisofamornemesisofamor on June 26th, 2012 10:33 pm (UTC)
you mean Mal? *lol* Haha, I love that he shows off his body so cheerfully without even thinking about it.

You cast Salome and you go for a European actress, when Morena Baccarin exists?

omg, ikr. I wasn't even thinking of Morena; I just knew I really hated the actress for Salome, but now that you've said it, Morena would have been perfection. PERFECTION.

nemesisofamornemesisofamor on June 29th, 2012 02:46 pm (UTC)
I just hate that they cast a white woman for Salome. There's too much whitewashing and woman-bashing going on with Alan Ball.
Criminally Sane: Peacehaiden23 on June 27th, 2012 06:47 pm (UTC)
I'm very glad to know that I'm not the ONLY one who thought Morena was PERFECT for this part. Thank you.
nemesisofamornemesisofamor on June 29th, 2012 02:47 pm (UTC)
You're welocem *lol* Glad that someone else thinks so, too.
