So I thought last night’s “True Blood” was yet another ho-hum episode. At this point I think they have so many characters and so many stories going on, that it makes it difficult to get into an episode as it’s over before you know it. Last night’s episode seemed to be really short, only about 48 minutes by my count.
Let’s start with the truly pointless story which we never needed: Terry and his army buds. We learned that they were cursed by one of the dying citizens they gunned down. They were cursed to be stalked by a fire Ifreet. I was worried the minute they went to the Middle East with this story that this is where we were headed. Ifreet is another word for Jinn or Djinn, basically what we refer to as genies. The Ifreet has been stalking them all and setting fire to their homes. After their “crazy” friend told them about it, Terry remembered seeing it in Iraq as well. Terry believes this is what is happening, but his Sargent isn’t convinced. This story needs to just go away!
Sam called Andy in about his dead shifter friends. Later on some men in a truck wearing bizarre masks (Presidents?) showed up at Luna’s place. They drove by and shot Luna and Sam! Luna’s daughter shifted into a wolf and ran off . . . Sam was only shot in the side, but Luna was hit dead center. I can’t believe they may kill off Luna! Actually I can, Sam is never lucky in love. We don’t know who is doing it, but from the previews it looks like Andy learns there is a gang going around killing any and all supernaturals.
Jason woke up totally nude at his home, but not before having a bizarre dream in which it was Christmas morning and he was a little kid again. In it he watched his mom and dad spurt blood all over the kitchen table because of the fang bites on their necks. So it would seem that Jason’s memory hasn’t been wiped by the fairies. This story could get interesting!
Lafayette continued to be haunted by Jesus and his demon. We also saw Jesus’ head appear at one point, to both Lafayette and his mother Ruby. Hmmmm, I’m not really liking this story either. Why did they have to go and kill Jesus?
At Fangtasia, Pam put Tara in charge of the bar. Later Hoyt showed up in fangbanger gear and started getting hot-n-heavy with Tara. That is until Jessica arrived and caught them together and flipped out. Oh Jessica, you can’t have all the men in town! She needs to decide if she wants Hoyt, Jason, or neither of them. I’m tired of her stringing these guys along.
Sookie ruined the sexy moment between her and Alcide by puking her guts out on his shoes. Poor Alcide! Bill and Eric also helped to put an end to the moment by seeking Sookie’s help in locating Russell. Sookie read the mind of Alcide’s friend who found the hole in the garage that Russell was broken out from. He had been glamoured, so Sookie couldn’t see the face of who freed Russell. However she knew it was a woman by their figure, and they had a specific necklace on which meant she was a member of the Authority. So it seems there is another traitor in the Authority. Eric doesn’t believe it was Nora, as why would she free Russell and then save the two of them? Meanwhile Salome was sneaking all over the place at headquarters, making her look suspicious. I have to wonder if Chancellor Drew was thrown under the bus? Is Salome the real traitor? She is Nora’s mentor after all . . . and they could have decided to just get rid of Drew as they knew what he was hiding (the Vampire-Human feasting porn/vids).
Finally Sookie, Alcide, Eric and Bill tracked Russell down to an old abandoned hospital. There they found a bunch of humans chained up, which Russell has been feeding on to get his strength back. Before Eric could stake him, something took out Alcide, and the show ended . . .
