Looking at This Season’s True Blood Episode 5 – We’ll Meet AgainBy
In this week’s True Blood episode so much happened, and a lot of it big, that it is hard to even know where to begin. I have been following the flashbacks with Pam and Erik so much that I was at first prepared to think that my lead off might indeed be to look at the significance of Erik releasing Pam from their maker/child relationship. It has been one of those relationships that have anchored the show and so more than a small explosion when that came.
But then the biggest bomb of all went off regarding the deaths of the Stackhouse folks and all bets were off. Who were the vampires whose need for a bit of faery led to the deaths? I don’t think Erik’s little speech is about to fix much of anything and there is every reason to believe that whoever was responsible is someone we know – or that Sookie knows. Of course, if all of this is true it could have some pretty devastating consequences.
And speaking of Sookie – if they knew her parents were faeries, why was it such a big deal when they found out that she could read minds. Shouldn’t that have been expected? Well, I guess you can’t expect the True Blood episode writers to catch everything, but whoever is in charge of continuity out there needs a rap on the fingers for missing this one. Since Sookie seems to be busy burning all her bridges these days, it may all be moot because that girl is gonna get herself in a heap of trouble with the way she is chucking her friends left and right. If it weren’t for Alcide she would have no one on her side.
This was also the True Blood episode to see a dark side to Lafeyette, who has become the one to be feared from the way this True Blood episode ran. I am not so sure that his” now you see me nice-now you don’t “bit for my favorite TV chef is a good choice for this character. And what is up with those haunted cars?
The Authority Still Rules
But I still am fascinated with The Authority. In this week’s True Blood episode we get yet more of the wondrously intense Roman, showing us that there is a reason he is the man who runs the show. Always impeccable and more than a little on the obsessed in this show, I always enjoy seeing him. In this week’s True Blood episode he showed us that he may be able to give Russell a run for his money as the craziest son of a b*#@! But then with the way he is acting, is an overthrow of his power too far behind? Perhaps this is what Russell will walk into, or maybe Erik can step into the breach.
There were so many other little threads to catch it would be hard to go into all of them here. There is still all the weird stuff happening with the post-Iraq action, Bill’s role in all of the stuff happening and of course the question remains about the shifters being shot, but by who? And poor Tara – when is she gonna get Pam to help her get into what may turn out to be a good thing for her? Stay tuned my fellow TruBlu fans. I am sure we won’t be left hanging forever – and there is always next week’s True Blood episode to lead us to more fun.
