I really hope this season of “True Blood” begins to pick up, because so far it’s been really really dull!
Bill and Eric are still prisoners of the Authority. We learned that Steve has been promoted as “the new Nan,” aka the face of the movement. That could at least be fun. We still don’t know who made him though.
Roman had his lover seduce both Eric and Bill in order to determine whose side they were on. She felt neither were Sanguinistas, but Eric’s little sister Nora apparently confessed to being one under torture. I have to wonder if she really is one, or simply claimed to be for some other purpose? Maybe she has a plan we don’t know of?
Roman remains furious over Russell’s freedom, as he’s going to be even more pissed than ever and could set their movement back years. It seems Roman and the Authority really are about mainstreaming, and it’s other vampires in this Sanguinista movement who oppose it.
We saw more of Pam’s backstory, and her crossing paths with Bill and Lorena years ago as well. They were the ones draining Pam’s girls. Pam wanted Eric to turn her, but he wouldn’t. She then forced his hand, slitting her wrists. She said he could turn her, or watch her die. This was probably the only interesting story last night in my opinion.
Debbie’s parents showed up and were worried about her. Alcide told them that Debbie was back on V, cheating on him, and he ended up breaking their mating bond. He told them she’s probably off with some tweaker getting high. They refused to believe this about their daughter. Later Sookie finally told Alcide the truth, that she killed Debbie after Debbie tried to kill her. Alcide seemed pretty pissed that she lied to him. I think he was more hurt than anything as he has a thing for her and she didn’t trust him.
Sam helped Tara out by hiding her in the freezer at Merlottes. However when night came, she was free again, and still pissed with Sookie and Lafayette. Tara ended up breaking into a tanning parlor to try and commit suicide in a tanning booth.
Earlier in the show, Tara almost attacked a young girl on the road whose car had broken down. I swear I knew the actress from somewhere, but I can’t figure it out. Was she the woman who was interested in Hoyt? Or was she Steve Newlin’s former wife? I couldn’t put my finger on who she was.
Jason reunited with his old high school teacher, who was his “first.” They made love, but Jason then realized what they did back then was wrong, and it’s set a bad precedence for his whole life . . . Jessica meanwhile encountered her first fairy, a male. She could smell him and chased after him, unable to control herself. He vanished into the woods. Jessica was so horned up she went to see Jason, but Jason realized he wanted more than just sex from women . . . I have to wonder why Jessica could never smell Sookie? Do they only smell fairies of the opposite sex?
