Sorry for the delay!
The secret is finally out...Sookie is a fairy. They were so reluctant to tell us what she was the episode before, so I was a bit taken off guard when Sookie just spit it out within the first minute of this episode. Bill still hasn't told her that her blood allows vampires to walk in daylight yet and I'm wondering why he's keeping that information from her? Other than that, his intentions towards her seem perfectly sincere.
So, the big thing I don't understand, is that Eric keeps telling Sookie that she can't trust Bill but it's Eric who keeps treating her like dirt! So far Eric has not made a very strong case on why she should believe him and turn away from Bill. I for one wouldn't trust someone who chains me up like a dog! I keep waiting for there to be some sort of turn in Eric's character, so that Sookie is drawn away from Bill but the opposite seems to always happen. Their kiss, however, was pretty awesome!
Hoyt and Jessica finally confessed their feelings for each other. Yay! I've been waiting for that to happen. I think they are so great together, but I'm wondering what's going to happen now that Hoyt has had some of Jessica's blood. Tommy is going to be trouble for them. He's not going to be content with Jessica choosing Hoyt.
Jason has the worse timing in the world in telling Tara the truth, but he should have at least told her the whole story of why he shot Eggs, just like he told Sookie. I don't think it would have really softened the blow, but at least it wouldn't have sounded like he just up and shot him for no reason. Will Tara try to take revenge on Jason? She's pretty angry at the world, so I'm not sure what she'll try to do.
But Jason is going to have more than just Tara to worry about, now he knows Crystal is a were-panther. I'm looking forward to Jason handling this new development and seeing what crazy path this takes him.
Lastly, I knew Russell was really upset about Talbot's death, but I didn't fully comprehend how psycho he went until this episode. There can't be anything worse than a crazy 3,000 year old vampire, can there? I guess we'll find out.
I was a little disappointed in this episode, since not that much happened to move the plot along, so I hope the next two episodes bring it!
What do you think?
