No one was the same at the end of True Blood (which is available to stream on HBO Now) but few people had to undergo as many changes as Jessica Hamby (Deborah Ann Woll). Turned into a vampire as a teenager by Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer), Jessica found herself at the center of love triangles and blood feuds for the entire show’s run. While she may never “grow up” in the literal sense, Jessica eventually figured out her urges and became a self-possessed woman who knew who she was.
Deep down, knowing who you are and who you want to be is all anyone is looking for. It can be a quest filled with questionable haircuts, terrible lovers, and lots and lots of failures, but those are just the flames that forge you into something worthwhile. So the next time that you’re feeling a little beaten down by the process, channel your favorite baby vamp and remember that you totally kick ass.
