True Blood Episode 306: I Got a Right to Sing the Blues

Well, this episode did not disappoint!

Tara managed to escape her Vampire Bride destiny, at least for now. However, a mace to the head would not have been my first choice. Don't we all know by now that you need to sever the head from the body if you want to kill a vampire without staking him? It looks like Franklin will recover from his bludgeoning, at least that's what the preview seemed to show. I'm okay with that. I wasn't done with his brand of crazy yet!

What was Bill thinking? Did he honestly think that he would succeed in staking Russell? All he got for his efforts was a sentence of being put to death by Lorena. But we did get to hear one of the most interesting conversations we've ever heard between them. We got a much bigger glimpse into Lorena's character and her history makes her a bit more pitiable, but I don't feel bad for her. She finally got to sink her teeth into Sookie and if there ever was a time for her powers to suddenly work, this was it! I mean, her life was in more danger at the end of tonight's episode than it has been the two times her powers worked.

The unexpected pleasant surprise of this episode was Alcide. Not only did we get to see him in his wolf form for the first time (a white wolf, awesome!), we got a good view of him period. ;-) It looks like Tara and Alcide will most likely be taking Sookie to the hospital. After, what looks like, Bill feeding on her. I can't say I'm surprised after seeing Bill's state.

I definitely need to take a moment to talk about the Queen. After watching her tonight, I can't imagine how she became Queen in the first place. She's not overly strong, she's not very old, and most importantly, she's not clever. Russell and Eric got the upper hand far too easily and now have her right where they want her. But how does capturing the Queen solve Eric's problem with the magistrate. It doesn't seem like he's any closer to rescuing Pam. Unless Russell is going to turn her in for selling vampire blood and take her territory that way?

The preview for the rest of the season looks amazing and I can't wait to see how everything will play out!

True Blood Episode 305: Trouble

Franklin totally made this episode! Although he’s not the hottest, he has definitely become my favorite new character. He’s just nuts! The “passion is electric.” Tara has managed quite well to keep Franklin calm, but how is she going to get out of being his new vampire bride? Maybe her only choice is to embrace the crazy, but with Sookie being captured maybe she’ll be able to help her.

Eric has come to see Russell in hopes of saving Pam and find Bill but he discovered much more then he had in mind, his father’s killer and the leader of Operation Werwolf. Will Eric be able to hold it together the next time he faces Russell and see Sookie in tow? Eric’s flashback was great. I love to see Viking Eric. Swoon! I have a feeling Russell is going to be sorry that he invited the sheriff of area 5 to stay with him.

It was nice to see Bill finally snap out of it and come to Sookie’s aid. One of my favorite lines of the night is when Bill called Lorena a “tiresome cow”. The King now has what the Queen has long been after and what Bill’s been struggling to protect. Along with a taste of just how useful having Sookie could be. As Talbot says, Russell loves to collect things.

The preview for next week looks awesome! All of the storylines are converging and some serious shit is going to go down. I can’t believe we’re already 5 episodes in. I have to say, I’m really loving this season!

“Look how fast I can type mother fucker…”

True Blood Episode 304: 9 Crimes

Two weeks was way too long to wait, so glad I had my True Blood fix tonight!

All of the events surrounding Sookie, Bill, and the Queen are all leading back to Eric’s search for the vampire in charge of Operation Werwolf since World War II, which we now know is Russell Edgington. The war between the King and Queen has begun. And Bill and Eric are already in the cross fire. It was very smart of Pam to give the Magister Bill’s name which may be the catalyst for Eric to join Sookie in Mississippi and discover the truth.

Franklin Mott is becoming more of a psychopath by the minute. During his time in Bon Temps, he found the answer to his lonely existence, Tara. Nothing says love like flowers and duck tape. We also discovered that he’s working for Russell and is back with the information he gathered about Bill and Sookie. Could the information he passes to the King weaken the new alliance between Bill and the King? Is this what causes the King to send Franklin to collect Sookie?

Is Bill losing too much of himself in his attempt to protect Sookie, that even when she does find him, will she be able to forgive him?

Tonight is the first time we’ve seen Eric day dream about Sookie, not even Yvette from Estonia could distract him. It seems he his having a difficult time keeping his feelings for her at bay. Bill seems to be stepping aside, but will Alcide move in before Eric has a chance to lay his claim?

Sookie can’t seem to keep herself out of trouble. If it’s not a coven of vampires, then it’s a bar full of shifting werewolves! I will say she was working the leather and tats pretty well. Alcide did his best to protect her, but you can only do so much mid-shift. Bill felt her fear, but to have protected her then would have ultimately put her in more danger with the King.

What do you guys think?
