Vacation’s End

This is not an “official” post, as I am still deciding what my next subject of analysis will be.  Originally I was planning to do a wrap-up article on True Blood, and then a weekly analysis of Breaking Bad, but life has been a little busier than I expected.

I would like to point out, however, that in the final episode of True Blood this season Bill directly addressed the issue I discussed in my Conflict Analysis Part I: the lack of trust between humans and vampires, and the rocky relationship between the two groups since vampires “came out of the coffin.”  (He mentions it briefly during his TV interview regarding the book he wrote about his experience possessed by(?)

As an avid Breaking Bad fan, I have been struggling to decide what conflict(s) I would like to discuss from that series.  There are a lot to choose from, but the internal and psychological conflict of Walter White is probably the best and most important to the story overall.  On the other hand, the series has ended now and I might focus on a more relevant story, whether a book, movie, or television show.  Then again, Breaking Bad was an amazing series and we should be talking about it for a long time, in my opinion.  So, I guess you will just have to wait and see what my next post will be about! I’m sure everyone reading this is just trembling with anticipation, so I will do my best to get it finished ASAP.  Until then, take care!

So I really am not sure whether mediation or facilitated negotiation will be enough to resolve the current conflict between vampires and humans. Continue reading
