So Jason is back with his amazing show making lines! Best line of the show? After Sookie told him werewolves were also real he wondered not only inf Bigfoot was real, but Santa too. Second runner up? When Sookie said she had been expecting Bill to walk through the door at any moment saying “Sooooooooooooooookie!”
A good episode, with a lot of new characters introduced. A few mentions of the books are in this post which may be spoilers. I have them to read still, but a friend who has read them tells me stuff that is different in the books
So the King of Mississippi has a band of werewolves working for him? From what a friend has told me, Lorena is the one who had the King kidnap Bill for her. Also the werewolves aren’t just ordinary wolves, as Eric explained these are a pack of highly organized and funded wolves that go back a long time (Eric dealt with them during World War II). It sounds like the King of Mississippi is behind them? I’m not sure though.
Sam and Lafeyette’s stories are complete departures from the books, from what I can tell and a friend told me. I actually am loving Alfre Woodard as Lafeyette’s crazy mother. Between her and Tara’s mother, that family has some issues! Sam meanwhile met his birth parents and his little brother. We learned Sam’s dad was in jail and the mom was broke, so she gave Sam up thinking the other family would do better, and praying he wouldn’t have the gift. She’s a shifter, the dad isn’t. Sam’s brother Tommy can shift as well. I wasn’t a big fan of this story. Oh and I know Sam’s family is supposed to be poor white trash and all, but have they heard of soap? The dad needs to wash those nasty tighty-whities he had on! That was all I could think about when he was shown. Also put on some clothes!
At some point we saw someone looking at a file on Sookie’s family line. Who was it? (Did I miss the reveal?) I do know again from friends that in the books Bill was in part sent to Bon Temps by the Queen to meet Sookie. They hinted as much in this episode with the King questioning Bill as to why the Queen sent him to Bon Temps in the first place.
Tara met a vampire named Franklin at the bar, who seems to have taken a liking to her and went out of his way to save her from some roughnecks. The previews seem to show them getting pretty hot and heavy. I have to wonder what he wants though? Is he the one with the file on Sookie? Trying to get to Sookie through her friend perhaps?
Jessica spent the episode trying to figure out how to dispose of the rotting corpse in her basement, only to find it gone by the end of the show. My guess is Hoyt has disposed of it.
The Andy and Jason story is getting on my nerves. Andy is being given the hero’s treatment for killing Eggs, who everyone thinks was fully responsible for Maryanne’s doings. Jason’s guilt is still getting to him, but Andy keeps telling him that he’ll go to jail for murder if he confesses. So let me get this right, Jason will go to jail for killing a killer who was about to kill a police officer? Either this story is stupid, or it’s just Jason who is stupid and Andy is doing this to get all the fame and glory.
Make the jump for the spoilers for July! (Note: it looks like there is no new “True Blood” on the July 4th weekend.
