True Blood on HBO which aired on July 24th, started right where it left off, where Sam’s little brother Tommy is being choked by his ever loving father. No wonder Sam didn’t want anything to do with them.
- Lafayette, Jesus, and Tara leave Marnie in the woods.
- Eric has a dream about Godric and Sookie, where he drains Sookie dry.
- Sookie comforts a remorseful Eric.
- Terry decides to get their house cleansed of evil spirits.
- Bill finally puts the whammy on his lawyer/descendent since she can’t take a hint.
- Sookie uses her telepathy to find out where Marnie is and goes there to investigate but is run off by her grandmother’s spirit telling her to get out of the shop.
- Sam comes to the rescue of Tommy, who is losing his mind after killing their parents.
- Sookie and Tara are having a great conversation that is until Eric pops up and Tara runs off scared, and upset.
This episode had me wanting to vomit. You know the part, where Pam pulled a part of her lip off her face. So very disgusting as this seems to be the flavor of the season so far, which is taking the show to the gruesome factor.
When Jesus told his story about his grandfather, and how he killed a goat and apparently sucked its soul into his body, who could blame Lafayette at that moment. I too would have balked at the idea of that kind of power.
Sookie is falling for Eric, which this girl just can’t seem to help herself, with falling for paranormal men. Though I had to admit, it is easy to forget that he is an evil, sadistic bastard who for the most part cares for no human, yet seeing him in this vulnerable state it is easy to forget that part of him.
Though rape is a serious issue, the conversation between Jason and Hoyt had to be one of those funny conversations that was supposed to be serious, because no matter how much Jason tries, he just ends up either being hurt or being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Most of the time he puts himself into a certain situation and sometimes others take advantage.
I almost fell out of my chair when Tara’s mother, now married to the reverend she had sex with while he was married before her, ended up at Terry and Arlene’s to rid their house of evil spirits. I find it funny that these two people don’t seem to have a clue as to what is really going on and yet Terry finds their music joyful. The look on Arlen’s face is absolutely priceless.
This was a dark episode, and not because the show was mostly shot at night. From Marnie invoking a spirit that is hell bent on hurting all vampires, and if the flashback Marnie had is any indication, the spirit has every reason to hate vampires. Jesus and Lafayette are going to a place that they may not be able to return from, as Jesus’ grandfather looks scary as hek. Alcide is a werewolf without a pack, and the local pack is not happy with that. And Bill finding out about the whereabouts of Eric is so not a good thing.
Overall this episode was another good one, and from the previews of next week’s episode, this season which did start off slow, is definitely picking up steam.
