Last week’s True Blood ended with Sookie getting shot and it’s Alcide who picks her up and takes her away from the vampire/witch battle. Bill’s blood is what saves her and Alcide is once again stuck on the outside looking in as Sookie’s first worry when she wakes up is the whereabouts of her vampire lover Eric.
Where is Eric? Well, he appears to be the witch’s lapdog. Antonia tells him to do something and he does it – he’s a zombie. When Antonia announces her intention to use Eric to kill people at a rally, Tara is shocked and questions the witch leader’s motivations to which Antonia responds in a truly tyrannical fashion – she tells everybody to shut up. No more inspirational leader – now it’s just a simple dictator forcing people to do the things she wants.
In the last episode, Debbie watched Alcide pick Sookie up and run off to save her. Now, Debbie is waiting for him at home, worried about what he is doing and with whom. When he comes home, she turns her back to him as he joins her in bed. Later you see her buying V from a dealer and I wonder what is going on in this girl’s head. Has her insecurity forced her back to her addiction? This will break her relationship with Alcide.
Luna’s estranged husband, Marcus, is the Shreveport pack leader. He’s angry because she has hooked up with Sam. He goes to Merlotte’s to confront Sam and issue a challenge for Luna. But it’s not Sam he meets, it’s Tommy and he tells him to have Sam meet him at his shop later that night.
There is another sex filled dream in store for Sookie as she gets a visit from Eric. Then Bill appears and she’s got both her men with her. She vamps around in some red lingerie and both the boys have their eyes bulging out of the sockets. After she tells them that she loves both of them and will either be with both of them or neither one of them, they acquiesce and the threesome begins.
A hungover Hoyt is still hating on Jessica. He throws all her belongings into a box and addresses it to the monster. That’s going to hurt when she sees it.
Lafayette has Arlene’s baby with him, he’s possessed by a ghost whose baby was killed decades ago. Now the ghost is using Lafayette to get a new baby – Mikey. The ghost has returned to her old house which just happens to be Hoyt’s house. And when Hoyt demands to know why he has Arlene’s baby, the ghost (via Lafayette) pulls a gun on him and forces him out of the house.
Hoyt calls Jason and tells him to come out because Lafayette has kidnapped a baby and has threatened to shoot him. When Jason and Andy show up, Lafayette does start shooting at them. He tells them his name is Mavis, not Lafayette. Jesus uses his medium skills to get Mavis to release the baby and give up the gun. She shows them where she and her baby are buried and they release her spirit which releases Lafayette from his possession.
Jessica answers the door and it’s Jason delivering her stuff from Hoyt’s house. He tries to leave but they end up in the bed of his truck having passionate sex with Jessica on top and loving it.
Sookie breaks into the emporium with Debbie Pelt as her cohort. Who would have thought those two would have been partners in crime? As Debbie distracts Antonia, Sookie finds Eric and he’s completely non-responsive to her requests to leave with her. She’s caught by the witches but Tara lets her escape. Antonia is very angry with her minions.
Sookie goes to the festival to try and tell Bill about the witch’s plan for attacking them. Just as she arrives, Eric launches himself at Bill and Antoinia spells the other vampire sherriffs to start killing people. Sookie runs in screaming but it’s to late, the carnage has already begun….
Alcide: The hunky werewolf is disturbed from a peaceful night at home by a knock at the door. It turns out that werewolves cannot just move into new territory without registering with the resident pack. The local packmaster reminds Alcide of his responsibilities.
Marnie: Captured by Bill, the vampire king, Marnie starts to have visions in her cell of the ancient witches. From the visions, she can see that all is not as she learned in history class because the catholic priests were all vampires. What a perfect cover for the vamps!
Eric: There seem to be mixed opinions in the fans of the show about the new and improved Eric but, whether we like it or not, vampire Eric is now a good guy and, in episode 5 of True Blood, he just seems nicer and nicer with every scene. He dreams of Godric, his maker, who tells him to drink from a sleeping Sookie. He’s about to do it but then wakes up in a guilty sweat. He regrets the dream and tells Sookie everything as they spoon with each other in her bed.
Hoyt and Jason: These two best friends are having a boy’s night out at Merlottes discussing their problems. Jason is still freaked out from his kidnapping and rape by Crystal’s family. Hoyt is tired of Jessica acting like they should not be together. Their problems seem light years apart and Jason ends up irritated by Hoyt’s lack of sympathy about the rapes. Jason has pretty much decided that everything that has ever gone wrong for him has been because of sex.
Lafayette, Jesus, and Tara: These three try to get Marnie to reverse the spell she put on Eric but she explains she was only a conduit for another witch. There is nothing they can do but run from Eric and his vampire revenge before he figures out what they have done. So off they go, leaving Marnie stranded in the woods. Lafayette and Jesus end up taking off to Mexico to find Jesus’ brujo grandfather. If anyone has enough power to reverse the spell or kill vampires, it should be him.
Marnie: Captured by Bill, the vampire king, Marnie starts to have visions in her cell of the ancient witch who she keeps channeling. From the visions, she can see that all is not as she learned in history class because the catholic priests were all vampires in that time. What a perfect cover for the vamps!
Pam and Bill: Pam’s rotting face drives her to the brink and she accidentally blurts out that Eric has lost his memory. Bill pounces on that immediately and orders her to tell him where Eric is. To which she replies…”at Sookie’s house”. The shocked look on Bill’s face is priceless.
Sam and Tommy: Tommy had been duped by his father last week but the tables are turned when Tommy awakes and wreaks revenge on his father. The worst part is that his mother keeps defending Tommy’s evil dad and he ends up killing them both. He feels so guilty for killing his mother that he runs to the only family he has left – Sam – for help.
Sookie: The fairy telepath has fallen hard for Eric’s new boyish charm. When he tries to leave to save Sookie from anything bad he might ever do to her, she calls him back. This decision proves to be Sookie’s undoing as far as Eric is concerned as she lets go of all barriers and finally gives us all what we have been waiting for…a kiss with Eric that is not part of a dream. With Bill on his way over at vampire speed, it’s a safe bet that things won’t get much farther. Can’t wait for the big confrontation!
The three amigos – Jesus, Lafayette, and Tara – are trying to convince Marnie to take her spell off the vampire Eric. Marnie knows she did nothing wrong – it’s the spirit from the past who keeps taking possession of her body and doing these things through her. They beg her to try but she gets no results. They frantically search through all her witch tomes to find some answers.
Eric killed Sookie’s fairy godmother and she faded away into dust. Now, he’s racing around the yard at vampire speed, drunkenly laughing and having a good ole time. It clicks for Sookie that he actually is drunk – the blood that he drank from Claudine has made him higher than a kite. And like any good drunk, he thinks of nobody but himself and he takes off – not telling her where he is going or what he is doing – leaving her yelling after him which seems to be becoming a pattern.
Stud service is in full swing as the females of Hot Shot are lining up for their turn with Jason and the chance to keep the werepanther line alive. It’s pretty gross – all those young girls being used to just have babies. Finally he convinces one of them to let him go and he starts to run through the woods with Felton on his trail.
We get to see Alcide’s hot body in all its glory as he transforms into wolf form to help Sookie look for Eric. Wow…there is nothing else to say. Eventually the two of them locate him in a pond and you get to see two smokin’ hot naked guys in one scene. I love this show but, after this scene, I really, really love this show.
The sun does not care that Eric is happy and wants to play in the water because his skin starts to smoke as it will with any vampire out in the daytime. Looks like the fairy blood is wearing off and when she gets him down into his cubby, he doesn’t want her to leave. I’m really starting to bond with this softer, sweeter Eric.
Jason runs from Felton and ends up killing him by pouncing on him with a spear. When Crystal comes by, all ready to start a new dynasty with Jason, he pushes her away as fast as he can. She’s like a crazy stalker, sure he’ll come back to her on the next full moon. He makes it to a road and falls down only to be recognized by Jessica and Hoyt. Her vampire blood saves him.
After Tommy goes to his mother for help and they have a little family reunion, he finds out she has tricked him because his father throws a chain around his neck and says that Tommy is going back into the ring to start earning them money again. His mother is too old to be fighting in the ring.
King Bill is dating Portia Bellefleur and she is taking him to meet their family matriarch for the first time. Everything is going well until Bill starts to look at the family Bible and he realizes that the woman he is having sex with is distantly related to him and he breaks it off. Portia is not too happy, she likes her vampire lover.
Crazy baby Mikey is now writing on the walls and it’s making Arlene even crazier. What is up with this baby? He’s able to walk around and write legibly on the walls? If not him, who is doing it?
Eric and Sookie have another moment when she goes down to visit him below the living room. He’s depressed and he tells her he already misses swimming in the sun. Sounds like he’s hungover from his vampire drunkfest on all that fairy blood. As Eric is about to kiss her, they get interrupted once again – it’s Bill at the door and he’s looking for Eric.
She tries to stall him but he insists on coming in. She lies and tells him that Eric left town. He still wants to come in. She finally challenges him with the fact that she has never lied to him before, he should trust that she is not lying now. You see his face close down as he knows he is the only who has always lied in their relationship – not vice versa – and he leaves without searching Sookie’s home.
Pam is badgering the witches to take off the spell they put on Eric. Marnie is trying but she’s not doing a very good job of it. Then, once again, the spirit takes over and Marnie curses yet another vampire, only this time it’s Pam and her face starts to fall away. Don’t mess with Pam’s face – now there will be some serious vampire revenge for sure.
