    That is great news, I like Riley but why have we not heard about the actor for the Vampire lover of Lafayette? I have a funny feeling James is going to be Lafayette’s lover which would explain the abrupt leaving of the role by Luke Grimes, since it is a sudden change in his character’s persona.

    Why does everyone have to have a love interest?

    • M3rc Nate says:

      Because its a mix between supernatural soap opera and supernatural softcore porn with action thrown in. The story hasnt really been good since season 2, its all nude scenes and vampire porn (people getting turned on by biting) and just tons of soapy drama.

        Not bad for a troll post, but it is really obvious you haven’t been watching the show.

        • Francine says:

          Funny you call them a troll, because I have watched every episode of this show and I pretty much agree with everything they said! The writing turned horrendous after the first few seasons and there are a ton of scenes that are clearly done just for the shock value. The show is and has been all over the place.

          • Tarc says:

            But that’s not what the previous poster said. Not that I agree with much of what you said either, but it’s was rational, unlike the previous post.

  3. Leslie says:

    Will be interesting especially seeing he’s a Vamp and Arlena hates Vamps!

  4. Liza says:

    Seems too young for Arlene!

    I don’t know about Arlene but he’d sure make me forget Terry!!!! :-)

  7. AGB says:
