True Blood Season 4 Ep 8: SpellboundBy
It was quite an ending last week with Jessica opening the doors to certain death from the sun but I figured Jason was on his way to save the day and I was right. Jason saves Jessica and the sexual tension between these two ratchets up to a new level.
Bill is still chained downstairs screaming for Jessica. She has recovered her senses and Jason carries her back down to him and they find the mangled body of the guard who tried to stop her from going into the sun. Bill tells them not to worry that the guard’s family will be compensated and that Jessica needs to be chained again. They are not safe from the witches until night fall.
Sam and Luna are talking over the situation concerning Tommy and what he did to her. Sam actually tells her that he can never forgive Tommy for hurting her. He could, however, forgive him for killing their parents because of their cruelty.
Sookie and Eric are still reveling in their new found love. When she removes his silver chains he is badly burned and needs to feed to heal. Sookie offers herself and they exchange blood in a very deep, emotional bonding.
Andy is called in to investigate the death of an apparent vampire suicide. He is so desperate for V that he gets on the ground trying not to lick up the remains of the dead vampire. Jason has to bring him back to his senses but not before Andy goes into a diatribe about how bad he feels. It is the kind of thing Jason does not have the attention span to listen too.
Sookie and Eric have a V enhanced love scene with a beautiful bed in a snow covered forest. They seem to like their love making “au natural “. Admittedly having a V enhanced session is not natural but it sure looks like they were having fun.
The spell did not work as well as planned and Antonia is quite frustrated. She and Tara are going through a mutual vampire bashing session when a call comes in from Bill. He is offering a truce and Antonia finally gives in and says she will meet him at the cemetery in Bon Temps at midnight. They must come alone.
Debbie and Alcide are at another pack party and they seem to getting along fine with everyone. Debbie once again lets her insecurities raise their ugly head and for no apparent reason tells Alcide he has to stay away from Sookie because where she goes vampires always seem to follow. The pack leader, Marcus, wants everyone to steer clear of vampires altogether.
Tommy is using his skin walker talents to imitate Ms. Fortenberry. He sells the right to her land and house right from under her. Tommy forgets how bad the effect of the skinwalker process is and before he can cash the check he passes out in the woods.
Lafayette is still seeing the strange black woman around Arlene’s baby. He avoids the ghost as much as possible but finally in a weak moment the ghost jumps into Lafayette’s body and goes the get Arlene’s baby. We see in a scene from the past that the woman had a white lover that was married and he killed her and her baby to make sure no one ever found out about them. The doll Arlene’s baby plays with is the same doll the ghost bought for her baby the day it was killed.
Marcus, the wolf pack leader, shows up to Luna’s house to tuck in his daughter. He was not very happy to see Sam and threats were rampant all around.
Jessica shows up at Jason’s house to tell him she broke up with Hoyt. He became so angry with her for hurting his friend he rescinded his invitation and she was magically dragged out the door. Looks like no lovin’ in the future for the red-headed vampire.
At the cemetery neither side showed up alone. Bill was trying to placate Antonia with peace but Sookie hears her casting a spell in her head and Eric wastes no time in immediately tearing out the throat of the first witch he can. This begins a battle that both sides could lose. Sookie gets shot in the stomach and Alcide comes running to her rescue. Debbie looks on as he carries Sookie away. True Blood ends with Antonia putting Eric under her spell and it looks like the vampires got the raw end of this showdown.
