True Blood Episode 503: Whatever I Am, You Made Me

And so the Authority plot thickens... It seems like Nora confessed to being part of the sanguinista movement in order to save Eric's life. It's unlikely that she really is a member. And who's side is Salome really on?

It was refreshing to see that Jessica really does care about Jason as a friend and it was pretty awesome to see her put his needs before her own. WTF with gothic Hoyt!??

Surprising to see how Pam got turned by Eric. We thought that was very bold of her to turn the tables on him and put her life in his hands for all eternity knowing how much importance Eric put on being a maker. He made the right choice, what an awesome vampire she has made. I wonder how long it's been since she and Eric had an intimate relationship. Throughout the show, we've been given the impression that they are close, but not like that. And let's not forget about Eric and Bill's first meeting also being tied to Pam. Explains some of the hostility that's always been between Bill and Eric.

How lame that Tara is trying to fry herself by using a bed in a tanning salon? If she really wanted to kill herself then she could have used a stake and have done with it. But I guess she had to do something to get Pam's attention.

Confessing to Alcide was a big step for Sookie, but he's not going to forgive her easily if at all. Alcide still loves Debbie.

What's up with Lafayette channeling evil demon magic man? That thing creeps us out every time.
Guess that plot line isn't going away any time soon, how long do you you think until we get a visit from Jesus?

Overall, this story seemed like interesting setup for the season.

Is that fairy I smell???

Episode 502: Authority Always Wins

This episode was pretty interesting. There wasn't that much happening in terms of plot, but you got some more insight into Eric and Pam and the Authority.

The flashbacks showing how Eric and Pam met were really neat. The old San Francisco setting and costumes were very cool and Eric looked very handsome in his tux. It was also very cool to see Pam pre-vamp and helps to see why she's so loyal to Eric.

The Authority headquarters was an interesting mix of modern, hi-tech, and ancient architecture. The whole religious aspect was a neat twist. To discover and older bible that the humans don't know about and making a point of how old vampires really are. The Authority is putting a lot of importance on mainstreaming and spinning it to sound like the only way for vampires to survive long-term. But is that their true end goal? Maybe they are just trying to win the humans' trust in order to take control more easily.

Lafayette came to the right conclusion if only he had enough courage to follow through. Tara would never have chosen to be a vampire and isn't all there. Tara will be very upset with herself if she heals and really finds out about all of the people she's killed. So far Sookie is failing epically separating herself from the vampire world.

Russell still looks pretty icky, so Bill and Eric have a little bit of time to find him before he's completely back on his feet.

Emma made a very cute wolf cub.

Episode 501: Turn! Turn! Turn!

That was quite a start to season 5! I think we're all in for quite a ride over the next 11episodes and we're finally going to get a good look at The Authority. I'm very interested in seeing what The Authority truly wants. They don't seem interested in killing Eric and Bill immediately anyway. What do they want with them?

I didn't expect Pam to be the one to help Tara, since Bill and Eric were so close by. But it was hilarious to see her dressed in a Wal Mart sweat suit. Ultimately, I had a really bad feeling about turning couldn't possible go well. Who could really blame Sookie and Lafayette for trying though.

 I was really grossed out by the wolf pack eating Marcus and Sookie picking up pieces of Debbie's head, but Sookie seemed to handle it all a little too well. I'm thinking she's going to freak out at some point.

 A few mysteries are being presented so far, who set fire to Terry's house? What happened to Jesus's body? And who dug up Russell? I have no idea about the first, but I'm willing to bet The Authority has something to do with Russell and that Jesus has become that witchdoctor creature.

Seriously....Steve Newland came back to confess his love for Jason?! Kind of lame, but maybe there's hope for him becoming good comic relief in the future. Can't wait for next week!
