Season 2 focused on 2 major plots, first was the disappearance of a 2000-year old vampire named Godric. vampire Godric was vampire Eric's maker. Sookie n vampire Bill was assigned to find Godric in Dallas. Sookie's brother, Jason happened to be in Dallas as well, together with the Felloship of the Sun, an anti-vampire church. their path crossed n Godric was actually inside the church, offering to sacrifice himself. the second plot was circled around a maenad (female followers of Bacchus, the god of grape harvest, wine, n wine-making, thus often related to rituals of madness n ecstasy) named Maryann, who visited Bon Temps. she was related to Sam's past n knew his hidden identity of a shape-shifter. she influenced the whole town, taking control of every human, having them killing among themselves n bringing her human offerings. Sookie, Sam n vampire Eric were the only ones not under her influence, they had to figure out a way to destroy her without harming their friends n neighbors.
Season 2 was an expansion of Season 1, it showed more of most characters n didn't solely focused on Sookie. the story got to be told in everyone's point of view, which definitely resulted to a tastier adventure. it was very believing in a sense, especially when the Fellowship of the Sun came up. when new things (in this case, the vampires) were introduced to the society, it was only natural to have a portion of people objecting to it, or even forming a new religion based on it. vampire hatred put the whole spotlight on Godric, known to be one of the oldest vampire, didn't mind to let himself burned under the sun, showing his love for god. the goriness n horror definitely increased compared to its previous season. i believe the series to mean less for me if i were to not have read its novels, where most of its connections were made. there were so much potential in each of the characters, it would be difficult not to be addicted!
