Awesome exclusive interview with SciFiWire, go read the whole thing!!:

As the finale looms, the stage is set for one hell of a battle as the only good guys left in Bon Temps—including Sookie, Bill (Stephen Moyer), Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) and Andy—try to stop Maryann and her minions from carving the heart out of Sam so that Dionysus will finally appear. How it will all end Forbes won’t tell, but she does rank the character as one of her favorites.

“She loves her mischief and having her fun along the way,” Forbes said with a laugh. “She has a different understanding of the world and this particular plane. She doesn’t see an end in the road the way everyone else does, because she has no time constraints and no moral constraints. And in playing her it is impossible for me to see her as a villain.

But the same can be said of any character that I have played. Admiral Cain [of Battlestar Galactica], you could say she was a villain, but the beauty of Ron Moore’s writing is that there was logic in what she did and said. The thing about Maryann, too, is that the writers have always given her a beautiful logic in what she says. I just love the entire story. I had no idea where it was going in the beginning. I, however, especially with Maryann, really enjoyed the sense of not knowing.”…

Why Mrs. MiM hearts Jake Tapper…

Jake has thus far resisted being assimilated or replaced by a pod person. He is all over the Team TOTUS intimidation on IGs…

Today’s Qs for O’s WH – 6/19/2009

June 19, 2009 3:44 PM

TAPPER: Earlier this year  the special inspector general for TARP Neil Barofsky tried to get documents relating to AIG.  The Treasury Department rebuffed that request, and although ultimately I think they did turn over the documents, the Treasury Department sought a ruling from the Justice Department on just how independent Neil Barofsky’s office is supposed to be. Please explain from the administration’s perspective what exactly is going on here and why it appears as though the Treasury Department is pushing back against an independent inspector general.

GIBBS:  Well, obviously, Jake, the president believes that inspectors general fulfill a unique and important role in ensuring that programs operate with efficiency.  No attorney-client privilege on any of this stuff has been invoked.  No documents sought have been or are being withheld.  The DOJ review is not related to any particular investigation.  It is sorting out legal issues relating to the creation of the office.

TAPPER:  Right.  But could you explain — could you actually answer my question?  I understand the talking points you’ve been given, but — but could you answer my question, which is why would the Treasury Department push back against the inspector general trying to get the documents…

(CROSSTALK)

GIBBS:  Well, again…

(CROSSTALK)

TAPPER:  I understand…

(CROSSTALK)

GIBBS:  I would point you to DOJ on the specifics of that, and point you to the fact that the documents haven’t been withheld.

TAPPER:  But Robert, we’re only, what, about 150-some days into this presidency.

GIBBS:  One-hundred-and-fifty-one.

TAPPER:  One-hundred-and-fifty-one days into this presidency, and already the president has fired one inspector general and his Treasury Department is challenging the independence of a different inspector general.  Can you understand why people who believe the president when he talked about the desire to be held accountable and the need for transparency, would say…

Blago bust ’emissary’ revealed….

Yes, we now know who ‘the Emissary’ of the FBI Wiretap infamy is..

The Emissary

The Emissary

Yes that’s right, it is none other than Avery Brooks (actually Emissary IS the name of his fan club). Of course, I would’ve sent for Brooks when he was Hawk in Spenser for Hire to deal with Blago’s thugs too..

Here is the video confession:

When the EMISSARY gets busted, will he tell the jury it was for the safety of the Alpha Quadrant? Somehow it wouldn’t surprise me the way this thing is going..
