Recap of True Blood Episode – Gone, Gone, GoneBy
Well this week’s True Blood episode opened with our little Sookie using chopsticks to take down newly-made vampire Mike Spenser, and that scene was a great return to the old True Blood we all know and adore. Actually, there was a good bit of blood flying this True Blood episode, between Sookie’s chopstick-defence move (I agree with the good Sheriff, good thing Sookie didn’t order pizza!) then Tara showing some sword-swinging gumption in defence of Pam and her property and finally the scene of Lilith taking Godric’s head off. Plenty of blood here, folks!
The Fairy Plot
Well, for starters it was kinda nice this True Blood episode to see Jason figure out the clue Grandma gave Sookie about looking under the bed. So when a scroll is found under that loose board, I guess it is Jason finally showing some smarts. Not that our boy was ever well endowed in that department, but his heart more than makes up for it. So now they take that scroll with strange writing on it and – big surprise- it seems that the language is no known human language.
Why do I get the feeling I could have told them that, seeing as the clue came from fairy-land? So it’s off to the fairies to get it translated, and when they do so much becomes obvious. It seems that back in the early 1700s a Stackhouse promised to vampire Warlow that he would receive the next female child born with fairy blood in her. That would be Sookie. No wonder her relationship with vampires has been so fractious!
Ah- I am going to be sad this True Blood episode to see our favourite good ol’ boy and country bumpkin leave. But Hoyt decides he has had enough of all this, and is taking a job in Alaska. Not sure if heading to the land of perpetual night in the winter is a great way to get away from vamps, but I never gave Hoyt too many points for smarts anyways. No wonder he and Jason were such good friends. But the scene where he asks Jessica to glamour away his memory of her and Jason is very sweet. As the title to this episode says – she makes sure that they are gone – gone –gone from his mind. Good luck in Alaska Hoyt!
The Lilith vs Russell Campaign
Gee – who would have thought Russell would in this True Blood episode turn his back on Lilith and religion once it was obvious that she, and not Russell, would be making the rules? No surprise there, really. I think Russell never truly bought her existence, but was willing to take everyone else’s belief into his plans, until she showed up for real. So Russell has decided that if he can’t run the show the way he wants to, he is just going to pick up his toys from the sandbox and go home, has he? Russell going rogue is nothing new, it is what he does best. I think we are going to see a battle for dominion between Russell and Lilith and it will be interesting to see who is the most ruthless. Bets anyone?
But turning Erik with that scene of Lilith taking Godric’s head off was a bit of a surprise. If there was anyone I thought would continue to stand down from Lilith’s influence, it was our cold Viking Vamp. But Godric has always been Erik’s weak point. Well, now it appears he has joined the crew, and with the scarcity of Tru Blood he doesn’t have much choice anymore, especially since the extra bit of Lilith blood was “given” to him. But never count Erik out, I say.
Bad for Business
But the pair to watch may just be Tara and Pam. What started as a really touchy relationship has become in this True Blood episode a sisterhood with fangs. This week’s act by Tara of beheading the new sheriff of Area 5 because he dared to try to dictate to Pam for more new vampires was an interesting turn of the relationship. Pam may be a bitch, but she is also fiercely protective of what she sees as hers, and that includes Tara.
He may tell her she will lose the club, no big deal since with vamps getting more vicious the club’s clientele is afraid to go out at night. But when he says he is also taking Tara, all bets are off and Pam tells Tara they are heading out. The club is “just walls and plaster” according to Pam, and the two can just light out anytime and hit the road. But as Tara says – “No one F###ks with our house!”, so it’s farewell to a very short-lived new sheriff of area five. Good riddance I say- bring Erik back!!
Closing in on a Season Ender
Well we only have a few True Blood episodes left for the season to end. A lot has happened this season, so it will be interesting to see what cliff-hanger is coming our way. With Russell and Lilith lining up for battle, and Tru Blood becoming scarce, will Bill and Erik turn on the town of Bon Temps or protect it? Just how will this reflect in their relationship with Sookie? And where do the werewolves fit into all of this? We will have to just wait and see! Stay tuned folks – the best is yet to come. Maybe Erik, Bill and Alcide will ALL take of their shirts at the same time and the feast of eyes will begin. Who knows?
