True Blood Tuesday: In the Evening

Season six, Episode seven

Eric, Nora, Willa: Still trying to escape the camp, Eric has to leave Willa behind to protect Pam (and likely Tara and Jessica) from the tainted Tru Blood. Willa was IMPRESSIVE—she had no qualms about staying behind to help her new vamp family. Promising to return for her, Eric zipped and zoomed through the facility with Nora in his arms. Meanwhile, one of the guards discovers the dead doctor and guard (who is still alive, but apparently left a little loopy). Eventually, Eric attaches himself and Nora to the underside of a truck leaving the camp.

Willa & Pam: Slipping on the white doctor’s jacket Nora had on, Willa finds Pam’s cell. Pam is practicing a little yoga when Willa shows up. Willa is surprised to find Pam unchained; Pam tells her she has a “fan” in the psychiatric department. Willa shows some guts when talking to Pam—she tells her about the Hep-V Tru Blood. Pam asks who else is in the know; Willa says only the two of them. Pam instructs her to tell Jess and Tara, but no one else. If too many vamps refuse to drink the blood, the camp baddies will know they’re onto them. Willa offers to get Pam out of there, showing her the severed arm. Pam: “Severed arm. Not bad, but too obvious.” Pam tells her to get back to Gen Pop before they know she’s missing. Willa just might’ve gained a little respect from Pam.

Eric, Nora, & Bill at Bill’s mansion: Eric brings Nora to Bill, asking for his help. Eric tells Bill to give her his blood, but Nora doesn’t want Lilith’s blood in her veins. Bill can’t help b/c it’s Nora’s dying wish.

Sarah at Governor’s mansion: Sarah’s driving up to the mansion and immediately notices there are no guards and an open front door. She makes her way through to the backyard and finds the dead guards and the Governor’s severed head on his statue. Crying, she becomes more resolved than ever to take down the “monsters.”

Sarah calls the Senator in. She needs him to help keep the governor’s death a secret (via the men he keeps on his payroll to clean up his seedy messes). Apparently, she doesn’t want the lieutenant governor anywhere near the office (maybe he’s a sympathetic?). The Senator agrees and has his man make the call to get rid of the governor’s body.

NOTE: I’m so ready for Sarah to get what she deserves.

Sookie & Warlow: Sookie and Warlow were lying together, just talking. She chided him a little about his old-fashioned terminology where her sexual freedom is concerned. She also made sure he knew that having sex didn’t mean she was agreeing to marry him. Suddenly, Sookie starts hearing a crying woman in the graveyard in Bon Temps. It’s Arlene, sobbing beside a plot of land.

Sookie & Arlene: After getting dressed and using her fairy light to transport her back to Bon Temps, Sookie finds Arlene curled up in a ball next to Terry’s soon-to-be grave. Between tears, Arlene explains Terry’s death to Sookie (from the glamouring to the shooting). Naturally, Sookie is confused as to who murdered Terry and why. Sookie says she will be there for Arlene—it was a sweet, sad moment.

Sam, Lafayette, & Nicole: Sam calls home to check on Laf, make sure he’s safe from the pack. Laf tells Sam about Terry. Sam realizes he must return to Bon Temps, despite the danger, so he tells Nicole to call her mom to pick her up. He doesn’t want her in jeopardy. Nicole seems a little dismayed at letting him go back alone.

Arlene, Sookie, Holly, Andy, & Lafayette: Arlene returns to Bellefleur mansion with Sookie; Holly greets them outside, saying Arlene’s kids are okay, but they miss their mama. Upon entering the living room, Arlene unleashes on Laf (not cool. Poor Laf), blaming him for his cryptic message and yells about the box (the one Terry wanted Laf to have the key to). Andy offers to help Arlene break the news to the kids; when they leave the room, Sookie asks about this box, but Laf has no clue and, frankly, doesn’t want to know. Holly suggests they have a look before Arlene.

Jessica & Jason: The guards bring Jess to see Jason in a conference room. He says he’s there to help, promising to get her out. Jess says he doesn’t have to. Jason: “You don’t have that Stockholder’s Syndrome, do you?” LOL Jason admits to witnessing what they tried to make her do with James—it made him sick. Jessica is resigned to dying at the camp. She tells him to just go on being the sweet, wonderful man that he is. She does ask for one favor: bring James to her.

Sam & Nicole: Sam’s in the shower. Nicole decides to join him. Is it simply final farewell fling…or something more???

Sookie & Lafayette: Sook and Laf open the safety deposit box and find a hefty life insurance policy for Arlene. They then realized he planned his death. As Sookie said, “When is ever leaving your family a good thing?”

Alcide & Pops (Jackson, but I like calling him Pops): Al drops Pops off at his old place. Pops tells his son he doesn’t have to go—that pack life isn’t for them…and one day, Al will realize it.

Nicole & Sam: Nicole’s mom arrives at the motel to pick her up. Her mom thanks Sam for looking after her daughter. Nicole gives Sam her home number and bids him farewell. It’s obvious she cares for him.

Jessica, Jason, & James: Jason comes through and delivers James to a conference room for Jessica. Jess asks Jason if he could give them a little privacy (he begrudgingly does so). Jess talks about her struggle with whether their kind can be good—seeing what James did for her showed her that they can be. He simply said he made a choice—he believes vampires can choose to forfeit their souls. She asked what they did to him for disobeying their orders—he shows her his fangs—one of them is broken off. Jess warns him about the Hep-V-tainted Tru Blood. He asks if she has ANY good news at all. Grinning, Jess says, “Nope.” They spoke a little about immortality; what they would do if they could…she then really wants him to make love to her (WHAT? Jess? Is that you? Jason is RIGHT OUTSIDE THE DOOR!). James—after making sure it’s what she wanted—obliges in true vampire fashion (the romantic kind, not the uber-fast kind).

NOTE: Um. Issue: So, Jason, Jessica’s ex-boyfriend, shows up and vows to rescue her; she asks him—as a favor—to bring James the vampire to her; asks Jason to give them some privacy; and then proceeds to have sex with the guy while Jason is standing right outside. Now, I’m thinking that’s not exactly the best way to thank your ex for his help. I dunno—the whole thing felt a little un-Jessica to me.

Bill, Eric, & Nora: Bill tells Eric about his vision of vamps dying at the camp (including Eric, Pam, Jess, Tara) and informs him about the existence of a fae-vampire, Warlow, with the power to walk in the daylight. Bill says they need to take Warlow to the camp together. Eric pledges his allegiance to Bill…IF he gives Nora his blood. After feeding Nora a good amount of blood, nothing happens. Eric believes Warlow’s blood could heal her, but Nora knows otherwise. Though Eric believes Bill is off to get Warlow’s blood, Nora and Bill share a subtle, but knowing goodbye.

Sookie, Lafayette, Andy, Adilyn, Holly, & Arlene…and Bill: Sook and Laf return to the mansion with Terry’s life insurance policy…but Andy warns them this is not the time for any news because Arlene is off her butt drunk. Laf offers to brew a little something to help take ALL the pain away.

Soon, Sookie hears Adilyn thinking—they become acquainted via fairy mind-talking.

Bill shows up to pay his respects…in the middle of the day. Sookie is floored; Lafayette is HILARIOUS; and Arlene started laughing at first, thinking she was hallucinating. When she realizes it’s real, her reaction is PRICELESS—seriously, I can’t even describe it; she was adorable, though.

Bill also pays his respects to Andy for the loss of his daughters—their encounter is brief and incredibly strained. Though Bill offers his hand, Andy is reluctant to shake it…until Holly subtly gestures for him to go ahead (imagine keeping the peace is the best move right now).

Sookie and Bill have a word in private. Once again, Bill speaks of the urgency for her cooperation in getting Warlow’s blood. It’s the only way to save Jess, Tara, Pam, & Eric because as they speak, they’re lying-in-wait in a death camp. He tells her that Eric has been there, that he escaped. If she refuses to help, there will be blood on both of their hands. Bill: “Bring me Warlow…and soon.”

NOTE: First Sookie, and now Arlene—what is it about being drunk on this show that totally makes you love the character even more?

Pam & Doc: Pam shows up for another session. He totally has a thing for her…and she knows it. Resting provocatively upon his couch, she teases and toys with him, talking in code with a heavy sexual undertone. Pam: “So you want inside…my head?” Doc: “Very much, yes.” Pam: “How deep do you wanna go?” Doc: “Deep.” She makes a trade—he gets laid, she gets inside to see Tara, Willa, Jess, and the rest of group #2 and #3 (Gen Pop).

Sarah & Jason: Sarah tells Jason the governor’s dead—meaning all the leverage he had is now gone. So, she has her guards cut Jason’s arm in a bad way and toss him into Gen Pop with the female vamps, including Tara and that bossy vamp bitch, who then claims him for herself.

NOTE: Who the hell is this bossy vamp?! And why do all the other vamps bow down to her (except Tara)?

Alcide, Rikki, & the pack: Al returns to his pack and lies about offing Nicole and Sam. Rikki steps forward and calls him on his lies. She has a couple of her weres bring forward Nicole and her mother, bound and gagged. You hear some weres in the background calling Al a liar.

NOTE: Al is in trouble. Have I mentioned how much I loathe Rikki this season?

Eric & Nora: Nora is dying as Eric prays to Godric to give her one more chance, like he did before. She says it was Eric who gave her that chance. Eric flashes back to his days serving a king in England. The king mentions he looks pale; Eric says because of the plague, there is a shortage of food. The king speaks of his lover who is tending to the sick. The king needs her in his bed. If Eric can bring her back to him, he will give him all the food he could want. Eric finds Nora, already sick and dying—there is something about her…she has courage. Nora sees a look of destiny in Eric. Eric offers to take Nora to his “father” (Godric), saying he can heal her. Nora only wanted a full life.

Back to present: Nora: “And so we end as we began.” Eric is in tears. Nora assures him that Pam and Willa will be there to comfort him—he saw in them what he once saw in her. Crying, Eric says he promised her forever; but she reminds him she only ever wanted to live fully, and he gave her that.

Nora started choking and her eyes closed; Eric, crying, holds her in his arms. Nora’s body starts cracking; he sobbed, begging her not to leave, but it was all for not—her body disintegrated into a bloody mess in his arms. With a silent rage taking over, Eric sees Bill standing in the doorway.

NOTE: Seriously, I was totally teary-eyed at this scene! I found it truly moving. Eric broke my heart. Pretty sure revenge is on the menu, folks. Would you want to be on the bad side of an enraged, heartbroken Eric? Yeah, neither would I.

Thoughts & Highlights:

-Okay, I know a lot of people didn’t like Nora, but I did, especially her interactions/reactions with Eric and Sookie.

-Sarah. Who do we think sends Sarah to meet her maker? Eric, Bill, Jason, Pam? Eric had the big kill last season with Russell, so I’m guessing it wouldn’t be him, but who knows.

-Willa has seriously grown on me. I wasn’t too sure about her in the beginning, but I totally think she is living up to what Eric would want in a progeny.

Scene of the night: Eric holding his dying sister in his arms, sobbing.  

Line of the night: Jason: “You don’t have that Stockholder’s Syndrome, do you?”

True Blood Tuesday: Don’t You Feel Me?

Season six, Episode six

Sookie, Lafayette (possessed by her father), Bill, & Warlow: Laf-Dad is drowning Sookie. Bill senses Sookie is in trouble (for someone who says Sook is dead to him, he sure did look frightened to lose her). Because it’s daytime, Bill can’t help her. Cut back to Sookie underwater—she stopped breathing. Whoosh! Warlow throws Lafayette against a tree and pulls Sookie from the water and sets her down beside a tree, talking to her like a man in love (it was pretty endearing, actually). Sook starts breathing again. When Laf tries to attack him, Warlow nearly bites him, but Sookie stops him, telling him that her father has possessed Laf. She suggests Warlow use his light power to blast the spirit right out of Lafayette.

NOTE: Kinda digging Warlow. Is that bad?

Pam & Eric: With stakes in their hands, facing a kill-or-be-killed situation, Pam angrily asks Eric if he actually created another progeny; he confirmed that he did. Pam isn’t pleased. She elevates off the floor, as does Eric. The governor is acting like a little punk, all excited for the “show.” Pam and Eric stare at each other for a brief moment before zooming across to room and taking out both of the “concealed” shooters. They brought one of those shooters down to the mirror and shoved the stake through his head, which went right through the mirror—Eric peeked through the hole and saw Steve Newlin’s scared mug. Eric: “I see you, Steve Newlin.” Steve pathetically tries to backpedal. Before any more damage could be done, guards storm the room and remove Eric and Pam.

NOTE: Really loved this scene…and very glad Pam and/or Eric didn’t bite the stake, so to speak.

Sookie, Warlow, & Lafayette: As they inform Lafayette about Warlow’s true nature, Bill begins to call him—it’s the same type of pain that we saw when Jess was called by Bill at the beginning of the season. Sookie says she can save Warlow, but she needs his help; she yells for him to take her hands; when they join hands, Sookie transports him to safety in fairyland—a place where Bill can’t reach them.

Bill: Confused, and perhaps slightly pissed, Bill realizes something is off now that Warlow isn’t immediately coming when he calls. He runs up to Jessica’s room, asking her about the strength of his summoning…only, Jess isn’t there. Bill realizes his vision of the future has started—Jess is at the facility.

Jason: Jason gives one hell of a performance in order to join the upper ranks of the governor’s task force.

Bill & Professor: Bill needs to speak with Lilith. He glamours the professor so he will drain all of Bill’s blood until he just shy of death.

Sam & Nicole, still at the hotel: Nicole tells Sam that Emma is crying. She misses Martha. Sam is reluctant to let Emma go, but Nicole seems to convince him to think things through—he can’t run forever, especially not with a child who has lost everything.

Sookie & Warlow: Warlow asks Sookie to tie him up. Though it is always sunny in fairyland, he can feel the hunger when night falls on the human plane. Sookie reminds him that she has been with him at night before now; he says he had already fed prior to seeing her, and it’s not something he is proud of. He says she can’t trust him, at least not the vampire side of him. She takes a vine, ties his hand behind a headstone, and seals it with her fairy light.

Alcide & Alcide’s father: Pops calls Al to the hotel to let him know Sam and Emma are staying there. However, he didn’t call Al until hours AFTER he first saw them, thus they were able to get away. Pops wants to track Sam and Emma with Al, but Al wants him to stay back. Pops: “Sometimes what’s good for the pack ain’t what’s good for the wolf.”

Bill: With his blood drained, Bill awakens on a subconscious plane to find Lilith’s bloody sirens ready to bring him to Lilith. 

Andy, fairy daughter, & Holly: Before Andy leaves for work, his daughter wants a name that embodies all of her sister’s names as well as hers. Andy gives her the name: Adilyn-Braelyn-Charlaine-Danika.

NOTE: Is it just me, or does the actress playing Andy’s living fairy daughter look SO much like him?! Nice casting, there!

Lafayette & Terry: In preparation for his set-up suicide, Terry gives Laf a key to his safety deposit box. Laf immediately picks up on Terry’s odd behavior.

Arlene & Holly: Laf phones Arlene to let her know. She puts two and two together and realizes Terry may be about to commit suicide. She tells Holly as much, and Holly has the idea of bringing a vampire over to glamour away Terry’s war memories.

NOTE: Why was this not considered, like, two seasons ago? I mean, the man has been in agony over his past, and there have been plenty of vampires who would gladly glamour him for Arlene or Sookie or Sam or Andy, even.

Sookie & Warlow: Warlow says he’ll rip up the contract if it would make Sook happy. He said he killed Lilith b/c he despises what she made him do. He wants to be with Sook—they could live together forever, would only need each other’s blood to survive, and there would never be anybody else…but Sookie would have to be a vampire.

Eric & Governor: Oooooh, I LOATHE the governor. Please, don’t let this prick last very long. Anyway, Eric is chained within a cage. In walks the cocky gov (sort of dancing, like an egotistical fool), along with a doctor. Soon, they wheel in Nora, strapped to a table (upright). Hepatitis V appears to be the new culprit—doctor injects Nora with the virus…she is their first host. Governor wants Eric to feel the pain he feels over Willa; he wheels Nora right up to Eric’s cage so he can watch her die. Nora, with bloody tears, tells her brother she loves him.

Bill & Lilith: Lilith knew Bill’s progeny was taken; she speaks in riddles (speaking of a blonde taking their salvation and a tyrant taking their freedom) most of the time, but says the time to act is now and not to come to her seeking answers again; all is on him.

Sam, Emma, Nicole, & Martha: It’s nighttime at a gas station and Sam turns Emma over to Martha, so long as she doesn’t take her back to the pack; Martha gives him her word and says it’s not even her pack anymore. Emma and Sam have a tearful goodbye.

Arlene, Holly, Terry, & Matt (vampire friend of Holly’s): Matt glamours away ALL of Terry’s awful memories. Now, he will focus on being a husband, father, and a cook. Afterwards, Terry seems happier, freer, and lighter—he asks Arlene to cuddle with him on his lap.

NOTE: BAD feeling. He won’t remember asking his fellow army buddy to off him, now. :(

Jason: Now at the camp, in full garb, Jason is entertaining a group with stories on the Authority and how many vampires he killed. In walks Sarah Newlin—the shocked look on her face is priceless. She asks to be alone with Jason to ask him a few questions before signing off on him. Jason says he’s there to rescue Jessica, and if she tries to stop him, he will tell all what a whore she really is. Sarah: “What the hell are you doing here?” Jason: “Grabbin’ you by your pretty little Texas balls.”

Willa & Governor: Willa is angry at being in solitary. He talks about finding ways to cure them. Willa mentions she has a friend, named Tara, who can help her understand what she is—if her father cares about her, like he says, he’ll let her out of solitary.

Alcide, Sam, Nicole, & Pops: Al shows up at the gas station, less than thrilled to learn Sam gave Emma to Martha, but only because of the “pack” mentality. Nicole says she has no desire to reveal anything about their kind any longer. Sam says it’s Al’s call—either kill them or not, but end it tonight. Al’s eyes flash wolf-y, but he finally agrees to let him go. He says to leave, never show his face in Shreveport, Bon Temps, etc. Basically, Sam’s dead—if he shows up in town, Al won’t protect him again. Sam and Nicole leave. Pops is proud of Al for, “Make[ing] the worst of the best decision of your life.”

NOTE: Um, why can’t Sam shift into some big, badass bear and threaten Alcide and the weres? I mean, they’re acting like Sam is a weakling. He’s not.

Bill: Professor awakens Bill. Bill wakes up to the television showing the governor’s pic—the program is reporting on the return of Tru Blood for the vampire population. He knows they have precious little time remaining. He demands the prof give him Warlow’s blood. He drinks the vial of blood and heads outside, into the sun. Yep, Bill is gonna do some awesome stuff now!!!

Jason, Sarah, doctor: Sarah, clearly up to something, invites Jason to one of the private observation rooms to “help make him feel like part of the team.” Welcome to the copulation room. Jason, after a brief pause, “Can you define copulation?” Sarah: “It’s fu*&%!#, Jason.” The female vampire…is Jessica. The male vampire is James (very hot). He refuses to force Jess to do anything against her will. They blast him with the “spotlight,” which is basically like a ray of sun, burning his skin. In order to keep James from being burned repeatedly, Jess says she’ll do it, however he refuses. James curses at Sarah and the lot behind the mirrors. Sarah has James blasted with light several more times. Finally, Sarah instructs the removal of Jessica. Poor Jason—it’s really painful for him to watch all of this.

Terry, Arlene, Lafayette at Merlotte’s: Terry is humming and happy, probably for the first time ever. He’s going about emptying the garbage. When he takes the bags to the dumpster out back and lifts the lid, we hear a gunshot. Terry was shot in the neck and is on the ground, bleeding profusely. Arlene cradles him in her arms, telling him to focus on her and think about all the joy—his family, their marriage, their baby boy. She starts singing the lullaby Terry used to sing to the baby while she was pregnant. Terry cries…until he dies in her arms. Arlene closes his eyes and kisses his lips one last time.

NOTE: This was sad, and I did choke up, I confess.

Governor: The gov. is reading from the bible in his yard…ooh…BILL walks in!!! The gov’s guards pound him with bullets, but they do nothing to him. Bill then uses mind control to have all the guards kill themselves. The governor is scared to BLEEP and has no clue how Bill is doing this! Gov. starts crying, talking about Willa, how she’s gone and was his reason for living. He won’t tell Bill about the white room where vamps meet the sun…so…BILL RIPS OFF HIS HEAD! GO BILL!

Eric & Nora: Black vein-y things are creeping up Nora’s neck. Eric tells her he will get her out. Willa, now out of solitary, is playing checkers with Tara. While she’s playing, she feels sick to her stomach; Tara tells her Eric is summoning her. Willa plays the guard, rips out his contacts as per Tara’s instructions, and glamours him to take her to Eric (off camera). Once with a very pleased Eric, she removes the doctor’s white coat for Nora to wear, along with the doc’s arm, which they’ll need in order to get through the automatic security locks. Eric dons the now-dead guard’s clothes; he says he’s not leaving without Pam…Willa says and Tara and Jessica—Eric: “I guess.” They make their way through the maze of locked doors and hidden rooms. Eric goes into a room where they are manufacturing Tru Blood and discovers that they are contaminating the bottles with Hep-V. Eric: “Fu*& me.”

Sookie & Warlow: Sookie admits to having feelings for Warlow, though she doesn’t want to have them. She tightens the vines, then offers him her neck to drink from; Warlow wasn’t greedy—he only took a little, really. She then bit his neck and, I’m assuming, sucked out some of his blood. She then undid his pants and undressed herself. You can guess what happened next. As they did it, their bodies both glowed with fairy light.

NOTE: Um, how did Sookie BITE that much out of Warlow’s neck?!

Thoughts & Highlights:

-Let’s start with the “big” death. Okay, it was sad…but…I wouldn’t say it was unexpected, especially with his memories being cleared and his complete attitude change from depressed to happy. On the flip side, there is something poetic about the death—that of a human, dying at the hands of another human in order to relieve him of human pain in a world of supernatural deaths. It was poignant, in a way—that even in a supernatural world, humans still suffer in human ways.

-What is the purpose of Nicole? I do like her, but I DO NOT get the reason for her being on the show. Maybe there’s something to come??

-Sam needs to stop running. He’s a damn shifter—let the man shift into whatever big, bad creature he wants and scare the hell out of the wolf-pack. I mean…really.

Scene of the night: Bill ripping the governor’s head clean off.  

Line of the night: Jason, after a brief pause, “Can you define copulation?” Sarah: “It’s fu*&%!#, Jason.”

True Blood Tuesday: Welcome to Vamp Camp

Season six, Episode five

Sookie & Warlow: We pick up exactly where we left off last week with Sook telling Warlow to get the eff off of her. Warlow immediately removes himself from Sook without issue; Sookie follows him around her living room with her supernova shining bright, ripping him a new one. He says she doesn’t understand—it’s their destiny to be together; she is his intended. Sookie: “If you loved me so much why’d you kill my parents.” Uh…yeah.  

Jessica, Bill, & the dead fairies: Jess is a mess, crying on Bill’s shoulder. Stunned, Bill says they’ll figure it out…and then she starts KISSING Bill. HOLY! Bill ends that stuff really quick, and Jess returns to her self-loathing, claiming she’s a monster and deserves to burn.

Sookie, Bill, & Warlow: Warlow claims the night her parents died, her parents were actually trying to kill her and he did what he had to do to save her. Sookie, totally not believing him, swiped her ball of light across his chest, burning him…a burn Bill felt intensely back at his mansion. Bill rushes into Sookie’s house...to retrieve his progeny, Warlow. Because Bill drank Lilith’s blood, he is now Warlow’s maker. Thus, as his maker, Bill commanded Warlow to follow him back to the mansion. Poor Sook is left completely dumbfounded.

NOTE: Okay, so, I’m guessing Bill is, essentially, Lilith reincarnated?? Or, perhaps, she just lives in his blood?? Ugh, I’m confused.

Andy: Andy shows up at Bill’s mansion, gun in-hand, and discovers his daughters, slaughtered on the ground. OMG, so sad!!! He’s going to each one of them, searching for any sign of life. As Jess zips out of the house, unnoticed, Andy hears a little gasp. He hurried to her, scooped her up, and took her away. “Daddy’s gonna make you okay.”

NOTE: How can anyone NOT love Andy this season?! I want to hug him.

Eric & Tara: Tara shows up to meet Eric. She tells him the governor’s men got Pam. Eric leads Tara to a checkpoint, where they allow themselves to be caught and taken to the camp.

NOTE: WTH?! Seriously, Eric?! This is dangerous. I mean, I want him to save Pam, too, but…turning himself over to the nutcases is hardly the best plan, right? Am I missing something?!

Pam: Guards are leading Pam down the halls of the camp. On their way, they pass some scientific labs depicting vamps having their fangs removed (ouch), some uber-speedy vamp-screwing, etc.

Sarah & Governor: Sarah tries to convince Gov. to let Willa go. Um…Sarah wants a ring and a baby. Hello, crazy chick, anyone?! He’s not interested in replacing his daughter, nor is he too keen on putting a ring on it. As he rushes out of the bedroom, Sarah desperately reminds him that when a woman comes to a man in black lingerie, you unwrap her.

NOTE: Clearly, Sarah is still trying to get over what Steve did to her. In fact, she even warns the Gov. not to take her for granted like Newlin did. Still…is this chick on glue?! She’s acting completely mental!

Warlow & Bill: Bill tells Warlow of his connection with Lilith—how they are now one and the same. Bill zooms over and stabs Warlow in the neck, taking a sample of his blood. While doing so, Warlow/Bill think back on the night Warlow was turned by Lilith.

When Lilith showed up, she was, of course, naked and intoxicated by his fairy scent. She humps him standing up; scratches his back, and says he is destined to save vampire-kind—thus, she bites him. Back to present day: Warlow says Billith made him into something he despises. Billith says I made you into our salvation.

Jason & Sarah: Desperate Sarah is on Jason’s steps, wanting to save his soul. SERIOUSLY?! Jason isn’t at all happy. She says—are you ready—God wants her to *bleep* him. And, of course, Jason cannot resist. They get it on in a big way.

NOTE: Anyone else think Jason’s her fallback? Because I’m thinking she just wants to get knocked up and try to convince the governor the baby is his.

Andy & Fairy Daughter: Andy takes the only one he was able to save from Bill’s mansion back to the station. From their evidence room, Andy retrieves a vial of V and feeds it to his daughter. She wakes up and says, “Daddy?”

Alcide: Alcide is in a ‘backwoods wolf’ bar, trying to dig up information on Sam’s whereabouts. Unfortunately, the backwoods bunch isn’t keen on helping the power-hungry pack master. Alcide’s father questions his intentions regarding Emma—he wonders if this is something Alcide really wants to do or if the new pack master is trying to impress Rikki. Alcide slams his father to the ground and tells him to get out of his life.

NOTE: Yeah, I’m over this new version of Alcide. I can’t stand him, and that hurts to say because I really, really loved his character. Now, it’s like he’s entirely different and it’s not even in an interesting or mysterious way—it’s just plain annoying and upsetting. Yes, I feel strongly about this. lol

Eric & Tara: The guards deliver Tara and Eric, both hooded, to the camp. Eric quickly tells Tara to find Pam before they’re separated.

Jessica, Jason, & Sarah: Jess awakens Jason from his post-coital slumber. Jason invites Jess into his house without hesitation. Jess admits to doing horrible things and needing to be confined where she can’t hurt anyone. Jess is literally cracking up, y’all. She thinks maybe she’s serving the devil in Bill. Jess asks if Jason ever loved her—he did. They share a tender moment together…until Sarah emerges, spewing venom, calling Jess a demon-whore. Jess slams her to the counter, telling her Jason has her blood inside of him, making him unable to resist her; Jess also lets Desperate Sarah know that Jason was probably thinking about her while sexing it up. Just before Jess could bite the bitch, Sarah somehow rescinds Jessica’s invitation to Jason’s house. When she exited, the governor’s troops were there to haul her away. Jason is NOT happy. Sarah called her body a temple, saying Jason has defiled it with a vampire-loving pecker.

NOTE: Um, since when could Sarah rescind Jessica’s invitation from JASON’S home?! I thought only the OWNER of the home could do that. Am I wrong? What did I miss? And, uh, Sarah needs to get hers—she’s ticking me off and she clearly needs some medical attention.

Eric & random vamps in the camp: About four of them are in a circular room, much like the one from Bill’s vision. Blue racquet balls drop into the room. Eric instinctively moves to retrieve one—the others follow his lead. It soon becomes clear whoever catches one or retrieves one wins; those that don’t will be shot one by one. When it’s narrowed down to Eric and a female vamp, two doors slide open, revealing guns. Eric has his and shoots her before she could even aim her gun. Of course, this means Eric wins. He’s given a blue jumpsuit with a number one on it. He heads into a room with a bunch of other male vamps and quite loudly asks where Pam is—none of them know; they recoil from him (Eric is a bit intimidating, after all).

Pam & psychiatrist: Doc asks Pam to lie down. She resists, even after being told there are hidden guns pointed at her. He tells her she is a level one—they are interested in her brain, how she thinks, how she feels (so, same as Eric, then). She’d prefer the vampire-sex room—but that’s for level 3’s. The incentive for cooperating is a member from the Living Donor Program. The doc asks what value Pam places on life, starting with human life—his life. Pam’s answer: “None. Your insignificance to me cannot be underestimated… You are food to me, nothing else…Truth is, I care more about the tuna you ate than I care about you.” Good enough answer—he lets her feed (and he seems to enjoy watching…thinking the doc is a little kinky).

NOTE: Totally thought Pam looked gorgeous in this scene. Her hair and makeup were insanely perfect!

Sookie & Lafayette: Sook tells Laf about Warlow, even admitting to believing the hot vamp-fairy when he said he loves her. She asks Lafayette to help her find her way back to the truth.

Terry & Arlene: Terry invited some guy named Justin to Merlotte’s and asks how his shooting is…then offers to pay Justin to kill him. OMG. Terry has tried to commit suicide, but can’t do it. He fesses up about killing Patrick. Arlene suspects something is up, but isn’t clear on Terry’s intentions. Sad. Justin agrees to kill Terry…but he won’t take his money. Terry doesn’t want to know when it’s coming.

NOTE: Maybe I’m reading too much into things, but it seemed like Terry’s pal, Justin, was just a little too eager to ‘off’ his friend. Aside from the obvious, something isn’t quite right here, and I couldn’t help but worry for Arlene.

Andy, Holly, & surviving fairy daughter: Andy and Holly are watching the fairy daughter sleep. Apparently, she was able to tell Andy that it was Jessica who attacked and killed her sisters; she also revealed that Bill was taking their blood for some unknown purpose. Andy grabs a gun, wanting to go after Bill, but Holly convinces him to stay put—his poor little daughter needs him and he’d never survive Bill. Holly is going to call off the search party—as far as everyone is concerned, the girls went back to their mama. Holly holds a crying Andy in her arms, promising to get him through this.

NOTE: I just LOVE Andy and Holly together. And Andy as a father is an absolute homerun—I just wish more of his daughters had survived.

Sam & Nicole: Sam and Nicole had their sexy fun, but it looks like she is somewhat overwhelmed or regretting what happened.

Jessica & Tara in the camp: Both are wearing blue jumpsuits with a number three on them. They didn’t catch the balls (and finish off the remaining vamp) like Pam and Eric did. Jess is still really, really high on fairy blood. Jess asked if Tara believes in the devil; Tara doesn’t, though her mother did. Jess is wondering if maybe vamps really don’t deserve to live. She’s deep in self-loathing.

Pam & Doc: Pam informs the doc on vampires who nest: the longer they nest, the stronger the bond. However, once they split up the nest, they’ll stake each other in a heartbeat. Thus, it’s not a real bond and they’ll feel no remorse when killing another vamp. The doc asks Pam if she feels remorse when killing another vampire. Pam: “No, I don’t.” She thinks she’s especially unremorseful. Doc: “Except when it comes to your maker.” Pam: “Yeah, that’s a different story.” He pries about her maker—Pam says it doesn’t matter because he’s no longer her maker; he released her. Doc: “Did you have any idea it was coming?” Pam: “None.” Doc: “What’d it feel like?” Pam: “I feel nothing…You humans love your pain, don’t you? You just love being in it…Cry the most at a funeral, you must be the best person there…Your lives are pathetically brief. When vamps say forever they have to mean it—pain is a worthless emotion…they have to move on. For a time her maker was everything to her…it hurt.” But, now, she’s over it…he’s nobody to her. Doc doesn’t believe she’s over the hurt of being released.

Sam & Nicole: Nicole tries to call her folks on a payphone just outside their hotel room, but Sam rushes outside to stop her. He tells her that the wolves would kill her family if she made that call. However, Alcide’s father saw the two of them from a nearby room where he was getting busy with some lady from the backwoods bar.

Jessica & Tara: Their form of a food line is a little mail drop, almost like at a bank drive-through. The guards drop a little bottle of blood for each one. Jess doesn’t want hers, so she offers it to Tara. Unfortunately, several of the female prisoners zoom forth for the blood. Tara shields Jess. One vamp calls the others off—looks like she’s the leader of the female prisoners. She asks what’s wrong with Jess, but Tara protects her, saying she’s just fine. Somehow the leader-vamp thinks Tara and Jess owe her.

NOTE: Loving the protective role Tara has taken on, first for Pam, then Willa, now Jess. I think it shows a real human side can exist, even when being a vampire—it’s a nice contrast to, say, Sarah Newlin or the Governor who are ruthlessly tossing away their humanity to punish vampires.

Willa: She’s a special VIP of the camp, brought to solitary. Though she saw Tara on her way in, the guard said they don’t allow VIP to mix with the general vamps. One of the ego-tripping guards more or less gave Willa a veiled threat that he will get to know her better. Have a feeling Eric will make sure that doesn’t happen.

Jason: Calls Sook and says he messed up with Jess and he’s going to fix it and make it right. I think he’s joining the governor’s troops undercover-like. GO JASON!

Sookie & Lafayette: Lafayette channels Sookie’s parents to find out if Warlow was telling the truth. Sure enough, when she touches Laf’s hand, she sees the memories of her parents: Warlow visited Sook’s parents when she was little, informing them of the marriage contract, telling them what she is; he said he would come back for Sook when she was of age—he will love her and protect her forever. She could live forever. Her father, staunchly against the union (and, I have a feeling, her being a fae, being different), then scooped her up, placed her in the back of the car, and intended to drown Sookie in order to prevent Warlow from marrying her when she got older. It seems Warlow was telling the truth. Sookie was stunned to learn that her parents—her father specifically—tried to kill her. Unfortunately, Daddy Stackhouse possessed Lafayette’s body and captured Sookie, stuffing her into the trunk of Laf’s car.

Warlow, Bill, & the professor who created Tru Blood: Warlow threatens to kill the creator if Bill doesn’t free him (he has the prof. in his grasp). It’s b/c of Billith that Warlow returned to his camp many years ago and murdered all of his fae kin (we see this happen in a flashback). Sookie’s grandfather—then just a small boy—was hiding from Warlow. Warlow heard his cries, saw him hiding, but walked away, allowing him to live. Billith says Warlow didn’t need them—he had her (Lilith). Warlow despises the vampire race—wishes them extinction; wishes Lilith extinction. Flashback: We see Warlow in a dark cave, overlooking a sleeping Lilith. He uses his fairy power to blast open the top of the cave and allows the sun to rain down on Lilith, sending her up in flames.

Sarah, Gov, Steve, Eric: Gov is thrilled they “caught” Eric. Eric says “ F*&! you.” Gov tells Eric he imprisoned his daughter in the camp. Eric is PISSED and stunned he could do that to his own daughter. Sarah says cue the stake. Eric grabs a longish stake from a little compartment—he says give me something to kill. Sarah: “This is the best part.” A door opens…and it’s Pam, also holding a stake. NOOOOOOOOO! Steve Newlin provided the intelligence on Pam being Eric’s progeny. When Eric and Pam just stare at each other, stunned, Sarah says, “Haven’t you seen Gladiator, effing fight.”

NOTE: Oooooh, nothing better happen to Eric or Pam!!!!!!

Lafayette (Sook’s Dad) & Sookie: Laf/Sook’s dad drags her from the trunk to a nearby body of water and forces her head under—she’s screaming, unable to fight.

Thoughts & Highlights:

-Wow, well, where to begin? How about what I’m not liking: Alcide/Sam storyline. It just seems unnecessary. Maybe it’s because of the turn in Alcide’s character, I don’t know.

-JASON is BACK! LOVE that it looks like he’s going to go all badass and infiltrate the camp.

-We know there will be at least ONE big character death rumored to happen next episode, and I think it’s safe to say this episode has set it up to be practically anybody.

Scene of the night: Has to go to Pam with the psychiatrist. She just DELIVERS. Kristen Bauer van Straten’s brilliant line delivery makes you hang on every word. Her technique reminds me a bit of Alan Rickman as Snape…he just brought an extra element to every syllable.  

Line of the night: Pretty much all of Pam’s sequence with the doctor. “None. Your insignificance to me cannot be underestimated.”

True Blood Tuesday: At Last

Season six, Episode four

Sookie, Ben, & Jason: Ben helps Sookie bring Jason back inside the house while Gramps goes after Nora. Once inside, Ben determines that Jason’s pulse is very weak. Sook hurries to call 911; while she’s out of the room, Ben…BITES HIS WRIST AND FEEDS JASON HIS BLOOD! I SO knew it!!! He has GOT to be WARLOW!!!

Gramps & Nora: Gramps catches Nora and wants to know how she heard about Warlow. Nora tells him about Lilith; apparently the vampire bible mistranslated some of the original text—it wasn’t the ‘people’ who drove Lilith to the sun, it was the ‘progeny.’ Warlow. Nora has concluded that Warlow is the only one who can defeat Lilith. Nora’s lust for the king’s fairy blood gets her fairy-blasted right into the road, where the governor’s men shoot her down. Looks like Nora will be another captive of Camp Crazy.

NOTE: Now, if Warlow is the only one who can defeat Lilith, does that mean he may not be the baddie we originally thought? Remember when Lilith told Bill about some new evil rising? What if she didn’t mean the humans? What if she meant Warlow—the only one who can destroy her? Maybe Lilith/Billith really is the big bad? After all, Lilith is supposed to bring destruction, right? Hmm.

Sookie, Ben, Gramps, & Jason: Jason is up and feeling fabulous. Ben tries to pass it off as Jason just waking up, voila! Yeah, we’ll see how long that weak statement lasts, Warlow! Anyway, Gramps claims Nora got to the main road and the governor’s people got to her before he could. Um, wait, huh? That’s a LIE, right? He DID talk to her and then SENT her flying into the street where the soldiers picked her up.

Alcide & Pack: Ugh, they’re going after Sam, Nicole, and Emma. Alcide, you have totally fallen off my radar. Get back to being nice, will ya, huh?

Sam, Nicole, Emma, & Lafayette: Lafayette has the getaway car ready and waiting…and they all escape!

Ginger & Governor: Despite Ginger’s delay attempts, the governor isn’t buying. Gov. and his men storm Ginger’s house. She’s a screaming mess. Gov. sends Ginger to camp, even though she’s not a vamp. Idiot—Gov. punches some wood and cuts his hand (starts screaming like a fool).

Pam, Tara, & Eric: Pam and Eric catch up to Tara, who has hidden Willa. Eric demands Tara reveal her location, which she does. Pam gets a little upset that he manhandled Tara, pinning her to the ground.

Terry, Arlene, & fairy tweens: Tweens can hear Terry’s thoughts—they know he shot Patrick in the head. Arlene hurries in and claims Terry has an overactive imagination and tells them it’s rude to snoop around in it. Andy hauls the girls off to bed. Meanwhile, Terry is distraught, crying on Arlene’s shoulder.

Tween fae: Once Andy puts them to bed, they turn out the lights and begin to change again—meaning they’re aging once more. On goes the light, and the fairies are full-fledge teens now. They decide to raid Arlene’s closet, steal Andy’s cop car, and head out for some drinking and partying.

Bill & Jessica: Bill and Jess are watching the mansion as the girls leave in Andy’s car. Naturally, they follow the fairy teens.

Sookie & Jason: Sook walks in on Jason doing chin-ups (and, yep, he looked quite sexy…sorry, but he did); she heads downstairs, finds a drop of blood on her floor and, recalling the strange, glowing blood Gramps showed them, shined her fairy light on the blood—yep, it glows. She knows. Ben is Warlow.

Bill, Jessica, Fairy Teens: Fairies attempt to buy beer at a convenience store. Jess convinces Bill to let her lure the fairies back to their place; she doesn’t trust the Lilith side of Bill not to drain them. Jess glamours the clerk into selling her the beer and not remembering seeing any of them. She proceeds to earn the fairies’ trust, despite revealing her true nature as a vampire. They agree to go party with Jess and Bill back at his mansion.

Jason & Ben: LMAO! OMGOSH! Enter sexy music and Jason receiving a shave from Ben! ROFL! Jason is having a sexual dream about Ben!!! LOL Okay, for those that don’t know—drinking vampire blood makes one VERY sexual; the person doing the drinking will fantasize about whatever vamp he or she drank from. Jason finally woke up, freaking out in bed! LOL

Bill & fairies: Bill brought one of the fairy teens into his office. He fitted a little belt-like thing around her wrist. Once he clamped it on, it took a sample of her blood. Of course, the little fairy was all into Bill. Um, aren’t they technically related?

Bill & Professor: Bill brought the cuff/wrist-belt with the blood sample to the Professor (creator of Tru Blood), who is locked in the basement of Bill’s mansion. Bill has essentially recreated the professor’s Tru Blood facility/lab right there in his basement/prison. He hands Professor the cuff and basically tells him to find a way to duplicate the blood, like he did with Tru Blood.

Eric & Willa: Eric finds Willa at the park, where Tara left her. I think he’s a little surprised she waited for him. He asks Willa if she truly wants to help him. She does, of course. Duh. Who the hell wouldn’t? Eric carries her to a large, empty area, digs a hole, and places her in the ground. He rips off his shirt—YUM—and climbs in with her. Willa: “Just so you know, I’m a virgin, pretty much.” Eric: “So much courage, so little experience.” Eric lays his shirt down on the ground for her to rest upon. He asks how she’s feeling; she says she’s excited and a little scared. Willa: “Is it gonna hurt?” Eric: “Not the way I do it.” SIGH. And…he turns her into a vampire, removing all of her father’s small mindedness, cowardice, and hate.

NOTE: OMG. That is all.

Sam, Emma, Lafayette, & Nicole: Nicole’s bite is pretty bad. Lafayette and Sam change her dressings. Nicole decides to try it on her own so she wouldn’t slow Sam and Emma down. Unfortunately, she can’t even stay on her feet. Sam tells Lafayette to get on home and stay safe. Without a car, Sam transforms into a horse right in front of Nicole. Nicole’s reaction was priceless: with a shocked face, she said, “Sh*&!” lol

Sookie & Ben: Sookie heads to Ben’s hotel and invites him to her place for a home cooked meal as payment for all of his help with Jason. She leaves him all smitten…as she walks away with a determined face.

Sookie: Sook’s shopping for groceries for Ben’s dinner. She calls and leaves a voicemail for Jason, so she can get him to take Gramps to the movies or something. She wants to have the place to herself...with Ben, a.k.a Warlow. Sook doesn’t let Jason know about Ben’s true identity.

Andy: He’s going ape, worried about the fairies. He wants an APB put out: 4 Caucasian females, between 4-7 ft tall, 60-260 lbs., and 10-50 years old. LOL Andy even lashes out at Terry, wanting to blame him. Terry and Arlene try to calm him, telling him the girls went out on a joyride, but he’s a wreck, worrying about his daughters.

NOTE: I’m LOVING Andy this season. I really hope he isn’t the one who dies.

Jason & Gramps: Jason asks Gramps about having a sexy dream about another man. Gramps uses his seeing power to view Jason’s dream. Talking it through, they realize Ben is a fairy-vampire…WARLOW. Gramps doesn’t want Sookie to know the truth—he supposedly wants Warlow for himself.

NOTE: Okay, is it just me, or did Gramps come to the realization about Ben being Warlow awfully quickly? And, why not warn Sookie? Why leave her out of it?

Gramps & Jason: Jason’s able to procure the keys to Ben’s hotel room. They head inside, Jason armed with a vamp-gun and Gramps with his supernova fairy light. They think Ben’s in the shower…Gramps fires, but he’s not in there. A naked Ben strikes down Gramps with his fae power and glamours Jason—AND Ben is English! Ooh, the accent! Anyway, he allows Jason to say goodbye to Gramps and glamours him into forgetting about everything that happened today. Before Jason leaves, Ben makes certain Sookie doesn’t know his true identity—and, for all Jason knows, she doesn’t.

Ben/Warlow then begins sucking blood from Gramps…and spits it out in the tub.

NOTE: MAJOR issue here. Warlow doesn’t drink the king’s blood, which tells me he doesn’t want him to die and he *may* want to protect his fairy kin. So, what does that tells us about Club Fairy? Did he really attack the fairies in the club, or could it have been someone else?

Alcide & pack: They find Nicole’s old dressings. Alcide orders Rikki and the others to go back and make sure they cleaned up. He’s totally power-tripping…and really pissing me off.

NOTE: What the hell happened to Alcide?! Where’s the sexy gentle giant we all love? Because this is definitely NOT the same Alcide.

Bill & Professor: Unfortunately, the fairy blood doesn’t have lasting power. The blood is so unstable that it turns to ordinary human blood outside of the host (the fairies). Bill says he’ll get more. The professor tries to balk, but Bill floats him to the ceiling, demanding that he find a way to synthesize the blood.

Eric & Willa: Willa, now a baby vamp, feeds from a hired human Eric paid off. She’s loving being undead—now she wants Eric…only he commands that she return home to her father. He wants her to prove to her dad that she isn’t a monster, that they are not to be hunted, and that they were all once human. She is only the second vamp he ever made—so, he didn’t make the decision lightly.

NOTE: I’m confused about Eric’s feelings towards Willa. Sometimes, I think he’s quite taken with her, but then he lets her go to her father without ANY instruction or guidance on being a new vampire. I thought it was important for the maker to guide and teach their progeny. I mean, he just sent her right into a trap. :/

Pam & Tara: Walking down some train tracks, Pam spots an empty building that may be safe. They get into a little fight about Tara’s possible desire to try and make peace/work with the humans, rather than be part of a war. Tara, upset, takes off just before the governor’s men spy Pam. They shoot her down with UV bullets. Tara witnesses all of this from the shadows.

Sarah & Governor: Well, well, well, Sarah is the governor’s lover. And it seems like she’s trying to tell him something—maybe she’s pregnant? His men interrupt him, telling them they had to invite his daughter in—Willa walks into her father’s room, dried blood on her gown and mouth. She tells him she’s still his daughter, begging him to see truth. Willa pleads for him to shut down the camp, reverse those heinous laws, etc. In fact, Gov. seems to bend a bit…until Willa smells her father’s blood from the wound he stupidly gave himself when punching the door. She tries to bite him, but Sarah shoots her with the UV gun. The Gov. is distraught and confused, but Sarah insists he let his daughter go and send her to camp.

Sookie: Setting the table for Ben, she sprinkles his food with liquid silver.

Ben & Gramps, on the bridge: Gramps is still alive. Ben only drained him enough so he couldn’t fight back. Ben-Warlow talks about not being able to kill a child (Gramps at the time) back in the day. He speaks of how he battles the dark within himself every single day. Ben opens a portal on the bridge and sends Gramps to the horrible place where he (Warlow) spent so many years.

Sam & Nicole: They’re now in a hotel. Little Emma is asleep in another room. Nicole is really upset, not able to remove the screams of her friends from her mind. Sam says he still sees Luna, dying. They share a kiss in a moment of shared grief.

Sookie & Ben: It looks like Ben is late to supper. When he finally shows up, Sook is none too happy. He brings flowers and wine. He’s super charming…dang it. Ben smells the food and digs in…the liquid silver has zero impact. In fact, he’s totally loving every single bite. Sookie confesses that her ex was a vampire, which Ben admitted he guessed. When he asks why it all went south, Sook said he lied to her, misled her, etc. So, she asks what it is Ben wants from her. Ben moves closer to her, saying he knew Sook understood him from the second she found him by the side of the road.

Jessica, Fairies, Bill: The teen-fae are getting restless. They want out, and they’re not letting Jess stop them. Unfortunately, when they try to get out, Jessica’s fangs pop out… “You smell like honey.” And Jess digs in.

Andy & Jason: They finally find Andy’s sheriff’s car in front of the convenience store. When the clerk knew nothing, Jason suggested that he might have been glamoured. Andy takes that bit of speculation and connects it to Bill, asking Jason if vamps can smell fairy blood. Jason emphatically confirmed Andy’s worst fear. Andy jumps in his car and takes off, presumably for Bill’s mansion. OH MY.

Jessica & Bill: Bill was with the professor in the basement when he heard Jessica’s desperate scream. He rushes up to find ALL of the teen fairies on the floor, possibly drained to death…by Jessica. Jess is sobbing, pleading with Bill to tell her they aren’t dead. Here she was so worried about Bill harming them, and it turned out to be her.

Ben & Sookie: Sook puts on an old record, ‘At Last.’ She and Ben start making out on her couch. While he’s on top of her, she forms her supernova above him and says, “Okay, you can get off me now. Get the fu*! off me or die, Warlow.”

Thoughts & Highlights:

-Totally knew Ben was Warlow…what I didn’t expect was walking away from this episode wondering if Warlow was really as bad as we thought.

-I’m also feeling a little iffy about Gramps. Something just isn’t adding up with him, but maybe I’m over-thinking it.

-Alcide isn’t the same and it’s disturbing. I’m not liking the turn his character is taking.

-I’m leaning more and more to a Lilith/Billith and Warlow/Ben showdown, with Warlow *possibly* being the good guy in this equation. 

-The fairy teens. :( I'm sad and feel SO bad for Andy. I hope they aren't dead. :(

-Have to say, this season is hitting it out of the park so far! WOW!  

Scene of the night: Tie: Eric and Willa in the open grave…and Sookie calling out Ben as Warlow. Two very badass scenes.  

Line of the night: No competition—Eric’s reply to Willa. Willa: “Is it gonna hurt?” Eric: “Not the way I do it.” Double sigh. You had to know that would be my favorite line of the night, right? ;)
