True Blood Episode 405: I Hate You, I Love You

Tommy's parent's are dead and he's free at last. It couldn't have happened to nicer people. I never knew that alligators liked marshmallows... Maybe now that Tommy and Sam are both killers and they're the only family they have left that they'll find some common ground.

Definitely a cringe moment when Hoyt appeared in Jason's dream. We were surprised to see that Jason was open for business so soon. It must be all the vampire blood he drank.

So the cleanse was not successful. Hopefully their house won't burn down. One thing is for sure, we need to find out whose doll this is and maybe it will add something interesting to this cheesy storyline.

It was so good to see that Sookie is using her powers to find out what happened with Eric instead of sitting on the sidelines. It felt like old times. On a side note, we had a lot of old characters come back this episode like Gran and Godric. We've missed Gran and her wisdom. Why was Sookie in danger from Marnie? Is it because Sookie could stand in her way and help protect the vampires?
Sookie is finally letting herself care for Eric which is awesome! Unfortunately, she's gone against Gran's warning that he won't remain the sweet viking that we've come to know and love. We like the old Eric to, but it's going to be sad to see this one go. According to the latest poll, 61% of you will miss Eric's old viking charm as well. =)

Why did Sookie let Tara run out the door like that? She should have just made her listen. But it could be a good thing that Jesus and Lafayette have sought out Jesus' grandfather for help. It looks like they might need his power to stop the witch and it looks like Antonia might have good reason to hate vampires after seeing them murder a member of her coven.

Was Eric's dream of Godric a crack in the witch's spell? Is he starting to remember? But the Godric of his dreams, was not the Godric we came to know. Maybe it was just his darker side manifesting itself.

Pam really fell apart at the end. Literally and figuratively. We can't believe she screwed up like that! Now Bill is going to see Sookie and Eric making out. Not good.

True Blood Episode 404: I'm Alive and On Fire

Best thing this episode is that Jason got out of there. We just couldn't take anymore crazy inbred mentality. Being a panther on his own can't possibly be worse than being a part of the hot shot community and being the Ghost Daddy.

Then we jump to Bill who can't possibly be with Portia because she was his great great get the idea. Clearly the members of hot shot could learn a thing or two from him.

When will Marnie get's possessed full time? We really don't care for her by herself. What did Lafayette, Jesus, and Tara think they were going to accomplish? Did they think they'd be able to control a powerful witch? Marnie has absolutely no control and almost no power on her own and they keep making the situation worse. The question is, what does this witch really want? It seems like she was a part of the turmoil in Spain and cursed everyone there. Does she have something against vampires?

What happened to Pam was horrible. How could they do that to one of our favorite vampires?!

Now the vampires know for sure that they have something to fear from the witches and we're curious to see how Bill and Pam will play together now that they have a mutual enemy. Maybe Nan will take notice and heed Bill's warning, even though the events in Spain occurred 400 years ago.

Where does this possessed doll tie in? It must have been the doll that caused the baby to write on the wall, but at least Terry is on the same page as Arlene now.

The part we enjoyed the most has to be Alcide, Eric and Sookie. It was great to see more of Alcide and we mean that in every way. ;) Drunk Eric was incredibly funny, but it was good to see a more serious side to him. It was dangerous for Eric to have drunk a fairy. Now that he's had a taste of the powers of fairy blood, Sookie will be even more of a temptation. What vampire wouldn't want to experience sunlight again.

We were about to lose all respect for Bill if he searched Sookie's house regardless of her wishes. It's good to see that the old Bill Compton is still there underneath that crown. Too bad Sookie lied.

Do you think Maxine will track Tommy down? She is a lioness after all. It would be fun to see the two moms face off.

Here's a little Alcide to hold you over until tomorrow night...

True Blood Episode 403: If you Love Me, Why Am I Dyin'

The residents of Hot Shot have become truly scary and Crystal just as creepy as the rest of them. She seems so different from last season when she wanted to get away from Felton and the craziness, but I guess the twelve months of using V and being under Felton's thumb have taken its toll.

Demonic Doll vs. Demonic Baby...that doll creeped us out from the first time we saw it at the end of last season and now the baby and the doll have found each other. Oh no.

So far the only thing that scares us about Marnie is the desperation with which she wants this spirit to use her. Marnie herself is not all that powerful and doesn't even know what she's doing. The question is when is this spirit going to take her over completely.

Tara, Lafayette, and Jesus...those three are just making things worse. There is no way that their plan is going to go right.

How did you all like Portia's business proposition to Bill? You can't really fault her for going after exactly what she wants, but she definitely thinks she'll make Bill fall in love with her regardless of his warning. We have a feeling that in the long run it will strain their business “friendship” as she put it.

We were glad to see Bill and Jessica still have some sort of a relationship. Eric seems to be a much better maker. His relationship with Pam is much closer. With Bill being the king of Louisiana, you'd think that would impact Jessica in some way. One advantage...being able to get Advil when all the stores are closed.

So happy to see Alcide...less excited to see he's back with Debbie. How long will she stay on the wagon?

Sookie was acting like a stupid chick in a B rate horror flick. Who stops after driving away 20 feet to see if the vampire is still behind them? We did like that she punch him in the face though. Eric is really endearing when he has amnesia. His old world charm is coming through. Sookie is going to be in serious danger...danger in falling for him, that is.

Best line of the night...”You just killed my fairy godmother!” You don't hear that every day.

Did everyone catch that Sookie was reading a Charlaine Harris book?

True Blood Episode 402: You Smell Like Dinner

We definitely liked how this episode shaped up and is starting to build into the main story line. There are still a couple of offshoot stories that seem out of place like Arlene and her baby.

What is up with this story line? We really wish they'd get rid of this. It seems like something from a B horror movie.

We were happy to see that Tara went home to see Sookie. It seems that we may have judged her too quickly. She really does seem to be doing better, hopefully, for her sake she'll go back to New Orleans. But I have a feeling she'll get sucked into helping Lafayette.

Poor poor Jason. He has the worst taste in women. Has Crystal completely lost her mind? It seems like V is not so good for her.

What happened to Andy? We started to have a little respect for him at the end of last season and now he seems like a useless junky.

Hmmm....Jessica and Hoyt. Going as badly as expected.

We liked the back story on how Bill became king, but the death of the queen was a bit of a cop out. Really wanted to see a big fight not a political assassination. It was interesting to see Bill's ties with the AVL and how much power they really have within the vampire community. Even though the AVL is clearly a force to be reckoned with and he has had a long association with them, he is still willing to risk his own life to protect Sookie from them. It would be really interesting to find out more about the AVL hierarchy and their long term strategies in handling the anti-vampire movement.

How do you feel about Sam's new love interest? We don't trust her yet, especially now that we know that she's shifted into another human being. Is she going to turn out to be one of the horrible Skinwalkers described in her father's stories? Or is somebody else pulling her strings...using her abilities?

Maybe there's hope for Tommy and Sam after all? I guess we'll find out.

We're a little surprised at how Eric is handling things. He's over 1,000 years old. You'd think he'd be a bit more clever in handling the coven and Sookie. We all know he can be very charming and usually gets what he wants. He seems to be failing on both counts. At least you know where stands. In some respects, he's more trustworthy than Bill. The cubby hole was pretty awesome! Eric offered to protect Sookie from everyone. Little did he know that he'd become the biggest immediate threat with the loss of his memory and discovering just how good she smells.
