Speaking of other things everyone knows, they know that Sookie made Tara a vampire. Working at Merlotte’s, Sookie can hear everyone seeing mean things about her – a nice homage to the first episodes. My favorite overheard thought was “I’d still hit that.” After facing death like a majillion times, this mindreading finally sends Sookie to hide out and freak out.
Alcide’s going to see the Pelts to break the news. Debbie’s dead. Killed, that is. By who? Marcus Bozeman. Ohhh. Alcide’s rewriting history. According to his version, Marcus killed Debbie because she wouldn’t get with him ,and then Alcide killed Marcus out of vengeance. That’s convenient, since they were banging and are not both dead.
The Pelts are not comforted by the vengeance. There’s weird emotional werewolf talk of teen dating, and flashy angry werewolf eyes. Despite Debbie being a V addict who cheated on Alcide like a million times, the parents still blame him for not protecting her. Alcide actually cries.
So the parents are taken care of, but Andy is still suspicious. Jason unsuccessfully tries to talk him out of dropping the case. Luckily, Jessica whooshes in to glamour it out of him. In fact, now he won’t even be able to remember the name Debbie Pelt. That might look a little suspicious, but whatever.
Back at her house, Sookie’s cracked into the liquor cabinet. Tara hates her, Lafayette hates her, Alcide hates her, people have mean thoughts about her, she makes everyone dead, etc; all of this can be cured with drink. She gets wicked drunk and starts singing along with her own lyrics to the Pina Colada song, which I will spare you.
Alcide drops by with news and forgiveness: the Pelts are gone. He took care of it. “Why would you do that?” Sookie asks. DUH. He loves you and is always taking care of you. LIKE EVERYONE. Sookie offers him a drink, and they predictably get drunk and then start making out. Alsookie shippers, this is your moment.
It may be drunk and thus legally nonconsensual, but it’s happening.
Of course, Eric and Bill are creepily outside watching, pretending to themselves that they’re there as part of the search. Bill gets a new idea: use Sookie as Russell bait.
So, I really loved all the scenes with Pam, Tara, Bill and Eric this week. The goodbyes between the makers and their “children” were very sweet and heartfelt, and I love Pam’s how-to-vampire lessons. Everything else… I could have done without, particularly the Terry and shifter storylines. I can handle the faeries for now because they’re probably going to be tied to some other loose ends, like the weird faery war we saw. It’s dumb for now – why old dudes? why brothel? WHY? – but MAYBE it’ll come to fruition. Please sound off below! Mwah!
