True Blood Season 7: “Fire in the Hole”

True Blood Season 7: “Fire in the Hole”

After the beach house drama, I was a bit concerned that we’d see the Girls go their separate ways, but as it turns out, the gang is still together and, of course, still as awkward, confused and dysfunctional as ever. There are big doings ahead for Adam, as he’s finally landed a role in a Broadway production. At the callback for Shaw’s Major Barbara, everyone in the waiting...
