True Blood: I Just Need Some Meth.

3 Aug

All eyes on Sookeh.

Please excuse my tardiness with yet another installment of True Blood highlights and lowlights. I had a lazy weekend.

This week’s episode marks the halfway point of the season. We open on Lorena still sucking on Sookie, declaring that she tastes delicious. A weak Bill then chokes Lorena with silver and encourages Sookie to kill Lorena. After Lorena’s gone, some challenges still remain: Debbie, Alcide’s ex is hopped up on V and corners Sookie, Alcide and Tara in the shack. The three manage to escape and embark on a wild van ride. Meanwhile, Hoyt and Jason continue to face romantic challenges galore, and Eric continues to try to get any information on Sookie from the Queen of Louisiana. Sookie eventually ends up in a coma after Bill drinks her blood to revive himself, and Jason, Lafayette and Tara hold vigil for her in the hospital.


  • Lorena is finally dead. Sookie jammed a broomstick through her heart, sending the she-devil back to hell in a huge burst of blood.
  • Hoyt and Jason bonding over being depressed over girls. This is how I hope boys really are.
  • The Queen of Louisiana sitting in a cage so elegantly.
  • Jason asking Lafayette to get him some meth.
  • Sookie’s coma dream – I would really like to know what the water Sookie was drinking tasted like.
  • Lafayette’s prayer over Sookie in the hospital. Lafayette is consistently proving to be one of more deep characters on the show.
  • Russell torturing the magistrate in the basement of Fangtasia. “Ay, que lastima!”
  • Eric: “Your majesty, shall we?” Russell: “We shall. Actually, no. Say hello to the true death.” Then he slices off the magistrate’s head.


  • Summer, that annoying chick Hoyt went out on a date with last week, wandering into his place with biscuits. Back off, bitch.
  • All of those horrible, gross people who were so into dog fighting.
  • Bill tossing Sookie around like a plaything and sucking her blood – not hot.
  • Yet another seen of the Mickens father in his underpants – coupled with Sam calling him out for his “saggy underpants”.
  • We finally see that Pam has been tortured at Fangtasia for the last two weeks. What the f?

Questions for next week:

  • What will happen between Sookie and Bill? Did Bill really not remember drinking her blood?
  • How will Eric’s relationship with Russell develop?
  • Will someone notice that Franklin is dead in his bed? Will anyone care?

Here’s a preview of “Night on the Sun,” next week’s episode:

True Blood: Eric, What the F*ck?

25 Jul

Poor Arlene and her poor, horrible life.

This week, Sookie comes into danger when she gets taken to the King of Mississippi’s mansion, and Eric apparently has led Sookie on to believe that he cares about her. Russell questions Sookie about what she is, but she really doesn’t know – and she’s shocked to learn that Bill has kept a file on her family for centuries. Meanwhile, Tara is still trapped by Franklin, and she’s so crazy that she bites into him and drinks his blood. Jason hits a snag with Crystal, who turns out to have a fiance with a beaten-up face. Russell invites Eric out with him to see the Queen of Louisiana, from whom Eric rescinds his loyalty. Sookie tries to save Bill after he’s fed on by a werewolf and his werewhore companion, but Lorena, ever-persistent throws her against a wall and starts drinking.


  • Lorena to Sookie: “I would love to rip you open and wear your ribcage as a hat.”
  • Sookie’s impression of Eric: “Sookeh…you make me feel almost human.”
  • Jessica giving a break to the ever-frazzled Arlene by glamouring a customer into leaving a huge tip.
  • Jesus and Lafayette = warm and fuzzies.
  • Eric’s flirtatious card-playing with Russel’s consort, Talbot.
  • The return of the Queen of Louisiana!
  • Eric tell the Queen, “No sweetheart, you go fuck yourself.”
  • Tara going all Lizzie Borden on Franklin – WOW.


  • Jason and Crystal making out by the lake – no one really cares.
  • Lorena tying up Bill and slicing him open – Bill’s face was ridiculous in this scene.
  • Tara is still tied to Franklin’s bed – ew. And Franklin calls her a “wicked little strumpet” – double ew.
  • Bill’s long, miserable monologue to Lorena as he’s laying in a puddle of his coagulated blood.
  • Any seen with any member of the Mickens family – they can go away, now.

Here’s a preview of next week’s episode, “Hitting the Ground”:

True Blood: Bitch, Where You At?

20 Jul

Tara, the blushing vampire bride.

I apologize for my being tardy with this True Blood post – I had to haul-ass to the ladies.

This week’s episode found Tara continuing her hostage role in Jackson at the manse of the King of Mississippi. Tara begs Bill for help, but of course he says no. Franklin lets Russell (the King of Mississippi) know that Sookie is in Jackson. Meanwhile, Sookie and Alcide flee Jackson in a hurry, but Alcide tells Sookie who Russell is, and naturally wants to talk to him. Eric attempts to pin the sale of V in area 5 on Bill, but it backfires when he sees that Bill is staying with Russell willingly. In the meantime, Jason is still trying to be a cop, and Jessica gets sad when she sees Hoyt on a date at Merlotte’s, but Tommy cheers her up. At the conclusion of the episode, Franklin asks Tara to be his vampire bride, and Bill shows up to warn Sookie, who discovers she has another supernatural power.


  • Talbot, the king’s “royal consort,” checking out Eric and asking, “Have we met?”
  • Alcide’s 1985-looking ex-girlfriend telling Sookie, “I’ll fuck you up!”
  • Franklin’s extremely fast texting.
  • Jesus watching his new crush Lafayette work over a hot grill at Merlotte’s.
  • Eric’s snug pastel green sweater.
  • “You don’t get it you dumb motherfucker! I own him, head to tail!” – the Mickens father to Sam. Eww. Everything is becoming more clear.
  • Tara: “We need to talk.” Franklin: “Don’t say that. Women say that, everything goes black, and I wake up surrounded by body parts.”
  • The flashback to Eric’s real life showed that even Viking parents criticized their kids at dinner.


  • Tara spending most of this episode tied to a bed. And the combination of Franklin rubbing his cheek to hers while she is immobilized.
  • I didn’t really care for Jason pulling over his new flame, Crystal, without a shirt on. We get it. He’s hot.
  • Tara and her shaking. Quit the shaking, already. It’s not a useful character trait.
  • So I guess Eric’s parents got killed by werewolves. Tough break.

Next week’s episode: “I Got a Right to Sing the Blues”

True Blood: Ring, ring, hookah. Ring, ring.

Lafayette peddling his precious V.

This week’s episode, “9 Crimes,” centered on Sookie’s developing dependence on Alcide, who, let’s face it, is a mighty fine man. We also saw Bill tell Sookie that he never wants to see her again. Good riddance, Beehl. Franklin furthered his hold on an already weak Tara, holding her captive and glamouring her into giving him information about Sookie and Bill.Lafayette almost got jumped when a V deal nearly went bad, but Eric swooped in to save him.

Jason didn’t really do anything, but Hoyt saw Jessica talking to a boy (a boy she was actually glamouring to prevent her parents from finding out her real fate) and got sad. Fangtasia got raided for V, and when questioned, Eric promptly blamed everything on Bill and fled while Pam was strung up and burned with silver. Oh, and Sam’s going to continue to allow his disgusting “family” to park their van near Merlotte’s. What a generous soul.


  • Bill telling Lorena: “It’s been a long night, and I need to sleep. Now get the fuck out.” Then he punched her all the way out of his room.
  • Eric’s fantasizing about Sookie – very sexy. She smelled his memories and said that he smelled “like the ocean in winter.” Mmm, Nordic men.
  • The fact that Franklin was considerate enough to leave Tara tied up on the toilet without her pants on truly impressed me.
  • After Eric flew out of Lafayette’s car, Lafayette says: “Oh hell – what am I supposed to do with this fucked-up-ness?”


  • Franklin creepily sticking his tongue on Tara’s.
  • Sookie pounding those shots of whiskey at Lou Pine’s – ew.
  • Alcide’s ex-fiance Deb looked like she stepped out of 1985, complete with huge curled bangs and an oversized leather jacket.
  • Bill’s “procuring” of the husbandless, childless stripper. I felt bad for her – especially when her blood started leaking from the door of the limousine.

Questions for next time:

  • Why were all of those men turning into werewolves? Can Alcide not control his shifting?
  • What does the King of Mississippi want with Sookie?
  • Can Tara and her horrible life get more horrible?

Here’s a preview of next week’s episode, “Trouble”:

True Blood: Mr. Northman, Will You Please Come In?

21 Jun

The third season of True Blood is off to an amazing start. Last night’s episode followed Bill in his continued effort to escape his kidnappers, while Lafayette takes a suicidal Tara to visit his own mother in an institution. Also, Jessica attempts to dispose of the dead body she still has hidden in the floor, and Eric talks vampires and Nazis with Sookie.

Other highlights:

  • Blood bisque and blood gelato served by the Vampire King of Mississippi.
  • The flashback to World War II with Eric and Godric posing as SS members.
  • The revelation that Sam’s brother is also a shapeshifter.
  • Sookie’s impression of Bill: “I keep expecting him to come through the door and say, SOOKEH.”
  • Eric, at seeing Sookie cry, saying:”Please don’t do that. It makes me feel disturbingly human.”
  • Bill throwing a lit candle at Lorena (Um, where the hell did she come from?)
  • “Mr. Northman, will you PLEASE come in?” Enough said.
  • Snoop Dogg’s “Oh Sookie” music video. He’s so fucking serious, it’s amazing.

And some pressing questions for next week:

  • Who (or what) moved the body Jessica had in the cellar?
  • What’s the deal with Franklin Mott (the newest vampire to come to Bon Temps who helps Tara beat up on some bad dude)? Is he good, bad, or good at being bad?
  • Will Sam be able to trust his biological parents? What about his shapeshifter brother?
  • Will Sookie take up Eric on having some “primal, passionate sex’? I will if she doesn’t.
  • Is Bill ever making it back to Bon Temps? More importantly, will anyone care?

Here’s the promo for last week’s episode, “Beautifully Broken”:

Oh, and Snoop:
