Unlike the first few seasons of True Blood, the writers have figured out how to make the show progressively better and better as the season barrels its way towards the season finale. During tonight’s episode, it took all of my strength to keep my mouth off of the floor and I chalk it up to the writers.
So, let’s get on with our recap and I have to admit that I loved this episode, but it was so painful at times… why? Well, let’s start with the most obvious:
As I stated earlier, Hoyt has been suffering big time and he knew that the only way to put his life back on track was to make drastic changes and that was to 1. Move far, far away and that is apparently Alaska, 2. Have Jessica remove herself from his memory and 3. Have Jessica remove Jason from his memory.
When he opened his eyes it was like seeing the Hoyt we first met in Season 1 and we had to applaud him for getting the hell out of dodge in one piece. Of course this has left Jessica and Jason devastated, but they have other issues to worry about.
Jessica has been summoned by her maker, Bill, and as expected she is worried about what Bill has become and that is a bible-thumping cult member and what that cult wants to do.
Jason on the other hand is helping his sister figure out what is going on and that involves a fae contract between a Stackhouse and a Fae that was under the floorboards of Sookie’s bed. We see that Sookie is the property of the Vampire that killed her parents…
This is also the scene where we find out that Andy is going to be a Dad…
I cannot wait to see Andy’s and Holly’s reaction to the big news
Now, it wasn’t only Hoyt who took matters into his own hands. Tara was not going to take this whole Authority mess lying down:
That’s right, Tara and Ginger plotted together to off the new, well now deceased, sheriff of Area 5. To tell you the truth, I started to like the new Sheriff.
Is this a sign of things to come, maybe and maybe not. Godric made an appearance to his progeny after they ingested some of the supposed blood of Lilith.
Has the doubt been set in these two, well I think so. Especially after Russell went all cuckoo and stated that this religion of theirs is what is keeping them from evolving. Not even Salome can stop him, so all hell will break loose most definitely.
Yet, Russell had a cool moment, kind of, before he went ape shit…
After the adorably gory moment, Steve went off to pull some positive PR for the AVL. When he returns to the headquarters of the Authority he sees that Emma has changed back to her human form and he chastises her which causes the little girl to ask for Luna:
Nice Pet Parenting Skills Steve… tsk. ;-D
Now, onto the low light of the episode. There were two deaths in the episode, the first one was that of the the coroner of Bon Temps. No love lost there. The second one was of Molly, the tech-savvy vampire that attempted to help Eric escape.
We barely knew you Molly, but your parting words will stand the test of time:
Molly: In that case allow me to say, Fuck all of you. You are destroying the world based on a book that is thousands of years old. You call that evolved? That’s the opposite of evolved.
By the way, do you know who flipped the kill switch? Bill…
Awesome episode and I cannot wait to see what happens in the next episode which is titled Sunset.
Synopsis: To help Sookie look into an ancient family secret, Maurella and Claude take her to meet the faerie elder. Jessica becomes an unwilling participant in Bill’s ongoing religious conversion. The military uses a damning video of Russell and Steve Newlin as ammunition to deliver an ultimatum to the Authority. Alcide reconnects with his father. Sam and Luna hitch a ride into the Authority.
