True Blood is often accused of moving too slowly, but no one can argue that the show stretched out the Ben-is-Marlow reveal. It took less than half the season for Ben to go from mildly suspicious but otherwise kinda boring faerie in Season 6, Episode 2 to confirmed faerie-vampire hybrid and uber baddie Warlow in Season 4, Episode 6: "At Last."
Clearly, this was supposed to be a big twist, but many fans figured out that Ben was probably not as nice as he appeared from the get-go. His appearance on the scene was oh-so-conveniently timed, and let's be real — this show didn't need another character whose only purpose was to look hot and vie for Sookie's heart. This season had been building to the Warlow reveal, and Ben was in the right place to play the role.
That said, not everyone picked up on the clues, while others considered the theory but decided that it didn't make sense, even by True Blood standards.
So, we want to know: Was your jaw on the floor last night as "Benlow" saved Jason and attacked Niall, or did you see it coming miles away?
