True Blood Episode 410: Burning Down the House

It's getting intense! Right from the start of the episode we're back in the middle of the chaos. Eric. We didn't expect Sookie to be the one to bring him back and he remembered everything! We were surprised that he was completely ready to pick things back up where they were. Now he's just completely irresistible. Bad boy with a soft spot just for Sookie, but now she wants to throw him over for Bill? Say what??? Eric all the way. Loved to see his witty sarcasm back. Sorry for the mini Eric love fest!

Nan keeps mentioning the factions in the Authority. What is happening there? Doubtful we'll get to see anything about this before the season ends, but maybe next season. Whatever happens, I don't think Nan will be in power much longer.

How cowardly that Jason asked Jessica to glamor him. She was 100% right not to do it. He's going to have to face his guilt and tell Hoyt the truth.

So Antonia was the dissenting voice between the two. This whole time, we thought Antonia was running the show. Marnie didn't seem like a strong witch at the beginning and her dislike of vampires didn't seem very intense. But now that she's had a taste of real power, it has intensified her views into hatred and she has become an evil force to be reckoned with. No longer a pawn, she is now the puppeteer.

You would think that Bill and Eric would have learned by now that you can't tell Sookie to stay out of trouble, because she's just going to find it on her own. Now she's managed to get herself and Jesus trapped along with everyone else. Go team.

That's was a good ending with Tommy. He's still an asshole, but we felt for him. But really we were just waiting for Sam to declare revenge on Marcus, which he did. It was unexpected that Alcide was Sam's backup though. He usually seems to stay out of conflicts, but it looks like he's getting more of an alpha personality.

Marcus and Debbie...isn't it heart warming to see two low lives find each other. They couldn't be more perfect together. What great parents they'll make! What does Alcide see in her?!

Yay, Andy finally hit rock bottom! Why is it that Terry, the one who is depicted as crazy, always seems to be the sane calm helpful one when times get tough. Guess in Bon Temps the crazy survive!

Best lines were from Lafayette: “If Marnie would have just left her dead parakeet alone...”
“What happened to Jesus's head?...It's a Latin thing.”

We do have to say that Eric, Pam, Bill, and Jessica looked pretty damn cool in there all black ass kicking outfits...the really big guns didn't hurt either

True Blood Episode 409: Run

Mavis finding peace has definitely been the most touching moment this season. I was a little worried that someone was going to get hurt since Andy was out of control. Could it be that he has finally hit rock bottom? His only real accomplishment during the whole situation was turning on the truck lights so the others could see where to dig.

Has the demonic baby storyline finally finished? I'm not so sure since odd things were happening before the baby had the doll.

Tommy did get beaten up by Marcus! Although, it happened a bit differently than I thought. It was surprising to see Tommy nobly go in Sam's stead.

What has Alcide gotten himself into? Now he's in a new pack and has probably gotten on Marcus' bad side. Maybe this season will end with Alcide fighting him and gaining control of the pack. Oh and let's not forget about Debbie. She's finally succumbed to her darker side and I'm not surprised that she's taking V again. From next week's preview it also looks like she and Marcus are getting a bit close. I hope we get another show down between her and Sookie. One thing's for sure, Debbie and Alcide will not be living happily ever after!

Jessica and Jason...that didn't take long. He did make it a whole day but I don't want to give Jason too much credit. After all, Jessica is unavailable during daylight hours. I hope that Hoyt will be able to forgive him.

Now, let's get back to the witches. Tara has finally woken up! I was so excited to see her realize Antonia is no good. Too little...too late though. The scariest thing is that the vampires are out maneuvered. How are they going to successfully fight someone who can control them. So much for the tolerance rally! On a side note, I love how Bill and Nan can't stand each other. It's very entertaining, but the funniest moment this episode was Jessica crying to Nan about her love life. That was awesome.

There are only three episodes left and I have no idea how Sookie and the vampires will clean up this mess!

True Blood Episode 408: Spellbound?

So Jessica is safe, not a big surprise. There was no way she was getting killed off, but her biggest problem now is boys. She's tried to make a change and was kicked out of two houses in one night. Bros before hos! Hoyt will regret the hateful things he said. What a difference from how Jessica dreamed it would go.

Jason, had some good lines tonight. Imagine a sunny day and the smell of barbeque, something like that. Perfect. Just the good thoughts an almost roasted vampire would like to think about. Then Andy, he stopped listening about halfway through. Can't really blame him on that one though. Andy has gone off the deep end. It was surprising to see Jason turn Jessica down, but he's bound to break down. It's just a matter of time. It's Jason after all.

What was with the snowy vampire blood/trippy love scene? Is it just us or was that pretty lame. The worst dialog from this show ever! So glad when they moved on.

We had a feeling from the moment we saw the alpha, that he was Luna's ex-husband. He had low-life written all over him. It is our hope that this guy run into to Tommy skin walking as Sam and kicks his ass. Tommy deserves it! As expected Tommy did not leave, but continues to degrade himself even further and hurt everyone that tried to help him in any way. Just when you hope he won't go any lower, he does.

Lafayette is so not prepared for his new calling. Someone has to teach this boy how to block out unwanted spirits or he's going to get possessed left and right. Is the spirit's goal just to take the baby? Maybe revenge? It's sad what's happened with her, but we're predicting that Lafayette will end up helping her get closure. Who was the father of her baby? He likely has a family line in the town still. Perhaps he was a Bellefleur or a Compton?

It didn't take Alcide long to break his promise to Debbie. Bring on the jealousy! Sookie is now Debbie's number one problem. This pack is not a good idea. But Alcide could make a good alpha.

So the big peace negotiation is a total mess and the war has begun. It looks like the first casualty is Eric. Has Antonia turned him into her servant? That is going to be trouble! Let's not forget Sookie. She is another casualty. We weren't expecting her to get shot, but we all know she's not going to die. Alcide to the rescue! We love our werewolf.

Only 4 episodes left and the preview for next week didn't give anything away!

True Blood Episode 407: Cold Grey Light of Dawn

Oh my goodness! This was a good episode!

Bill has proven himself to be a good leader. We thought he was over reacting thinking that the witch would get things together so quickly, but he was right. He also seems to have grown wise in regards to how to exist; not retaliating with more death.

Pam was a new level of disgusting this episode. What a beauty regiment! Will she turn into a zombie?? Definitely great special effects when you could see all of the muscles on her face.

We were really happy to see that Sam and that girl figured out the Tommy thing so quickly. It wouldn't have been frustrating if they had drawn in out. Do you think Tommy actually realizes he did something wrong? Will he really leave town? It seems unlikely that Sam will be rid of him so easily.

Okay, the witches! It's finally really good. Antonia is definitely a force to be reckoned with. But once again, Tara has gotten in over her head. She jumps from one bad situation to another, but it's hard to blame her. She's just trying to get some control over her life.

Sookie and Eric, wow. What a sex montage! Definitely not expecting all that. What do you think about their tender exchange? Sookie has fallen fast and hard. We hope that they will be able to rekindle the romance after he regains his memory. But even if Sookie wants to care about him, will Eric be able to let her in? One part that was really good, was when Sookie realized that Eric cared for her even before his amnesia when he offered his life in exchange for her safety at the Fellowhship of the Sun church.

Alcide and Debbie got an eyeful and we believe he feels more for Sookie than he's admitting. His relationship with Debbie is doomed for more reasons than Sookie, but that's a big one!

What is with the creepy ghost lady? At least, Lafayette will be getting to the bottom of that.

Can't believe this season is half over! This second half is really going to be great. The war is on!

True Blood Episode 406: I Wish I Was the Moon

Tommy has learned a scary new way of shifting, and of course he’s already abusing that power. I doubt Sam will ever be able to make amends with his lady friend after what Tommy has done.

Not surprised to see Debbie would go behind Alcide’s back and join the pack in Shreveport. There is nothing good to come of joining the wolf pack, the pack leader looks like someone I would run from in a heartbeat.

So Jason won’t be turning into a werepanther? I’ll be shocked if this is actually the case! This is a surprising turn for those of us who read the Sookie Stackhouse books. It looks like there is going to be something between Jason and Jessica and unfortunately Hoyt will be right in the middle. Besides Jason being attracted to Jessica because she gave him her blood, Jessica has a thing for Jason, and that was quite obvious in this episode.

I can’t help but feel bad for Tara; she consistently has bad luck, so it was nice to see her girlfriend forgive her. Having said that, I can’t help but think Tara brings on all the badness by making such horrible decisions. She should have left while she had the chance, hopefully Pam doesn’t kill her girlfriend.

Bill deciding to let Eric go was shocking, but the sex scene in the woods was even more so. No time like the present, we’re in the woods, my brother is out here running around, let’s do it right here! The HBO affect, gotta love it!

Marnie being taken over by the witch’s spirit, not surprising, it’s going to be a messy battle between her and the vampires. I’m guessing Lafayette is going to be the answer to defeating the spirit witch based on the preview for the next episode.
