Last Sunday brought a new episode of True Blood to us! This one kind of moved the story line further. Let’s see what’s going on with our characters:
So the cliffhanger from last week was immediately answered. Like I said, Jessica hit the sunlight but Jason was there in time to save her! Looks like Jason was about to get that vamp box too, but they held back. It’s over for that Hoyt man, smh. The dreams in this show are off the chain! Everyone’s latent desires are always expressed this way! Hoyt finally flipped out too once Jessica broke it off with him. He was waiting to do that for a minute too. Your first real relationships, 9 times out of 10, will end up in an L. Jessica ends up getting her invitation rescinded from both Hoyt and Jason, as Jason wants no problems with the situation either. She’s losing all around!
The connection within Lafayette and his supernatural power is getting stronger. He has visions of the black woman spirit who sang to Arlene’s baby. We learn that this woman had a child with a married white man, and he ended up killing the child so that no one would discover his secret. She ends up possessing Lafayette and kidnapping Arlene’s baby!
Antonia & Tara
Antonia is officially pissed! She wants the death of every vampire and isnt satisfied with only one death. She sees Tara as her #1 recruit to teach her how to use magic to kill vampires. Will Tara become a witch now? Tara and Antonia share the hatred and fear of vampires, and the desire to kill them all. If Tara gets any power, she could be the worse villain (heroine?) yet!
Their relationship gets even deeper this episode. They take the effect of a blood oath, with Sookie trusting Eric to feed on her, and in turn Eric requesting that she drink his blood. We know the effects of V, so this can only strengthen their bond, even if E flips back to the killer viking. You see the classic V effects in this episode. Imagine if V was real? SMH people would be imagining themselves doing somersaults in sunkist meadows! Is it me or have they been boning for like 3 episodes straight?! Sheesh! They decide to join the war with Bill, yet Eric would rather just be with her and stay out of it. Once again this isn’t the killer that we know.
Alcide and the wolfpack
Marcus the wolfpack leader (also the father of Luna the shifter’s kid) has decreed that the pack will stay out of the Vampire – Witch war. He lets them know that Vampires are way stronger than them, and they need to be smart, or perish. I feel like Alcide is in this pack more for Debbie than himself. They all respect him, but he wants to remain solo. We see he definitely can’t stay away from Sookie, and ends up coming to her aid towards the end of the episode
Tommy’s back to his grimy ways. He’s now taken Mrs Fortenberry’s identity to make a quick buck. If he learns how to skinwalk consistently, he could be dangerous also. Sam finally has a confrontation with Marcus. This is the classic ex man / baby mama drama scenario. Sam is just in the wrong place at the wrong time. I can see them two eventually having it out!
The King has to perform damage control this episode. First with the vampire suicides as a result of Antonia’s spell, by making statements. Next with Antonia herself. He calls her, humbly, apologizing for the transgressions of all vampires and arranges a meeting to see if they can broker peace. It’s Bills characteristics of righteousness and diplomacy that make him a natural leader and although begrudgingly, the perfect candidate for King of Louisiana!
Of course the meeting between Bill and Antonia turn into war, and no one trusts the other. Sookie reads the witch’s mind, hears her casting a spell, which sets off the war. Her fairy powers manifest again. I hope we stick to just the powers and not that damned fairy world!! Sookie gets shot and carted off by Alcide (with Debbie watching from afar). Bill saves Tara from Pam, and gets jumped by Antonia’s goons. Eric gets back to his killing ways and ends up getting controlled by Antonia again. If Eric is going to be used as a killing tool, it’s all but over for them vampires.
This was a solid episode. It was a little slow in parts, but helped advance the story. I’m eager to see where the war goes next.
