Wow! That was a really stupid finale and didn’t resolve anything! I actually watched it live, which may have put its shittiness into sharper relief.
Russell is killed in the first minute, despite being perhaps the best character on the show.
no more of this?????????
All that lead up, not killing him in the first place, bringing him back from being trapped, his awesome relationship with Steve and obsession with daywalking, and he’s just dead out of nowhere? Really? And Eric can just appear and snap his neck, no problem? I was really hoping there would be an awesome storyline about the temptations of the daylight to vampires, like that magic ring Angel and Spike fought over on Buffy.
Eric makes Nora promise she won’t hurt Sookie, even though she smells reallll good. After Russell is dead, Sookie runs out to Jason, who has been blasted in the head by faery light. When he wakes up, he’s started hallucinating his dead parents. !!! The ghost parents NOT happy with all the fangers drifting around their old family home. They’re kind of dicks, actually, and encouraging Jason’s new anti-supe dogma. Damnit! Have you learned nothing from the Newlins and Obamas? Fundamentalism is bad!
Eric’s goes back to Fangtasia, where Tara lets him know the Authority has Pam. Of course, between Pam and his brief boyfriend Bill, Eric has to go back to the Authority. Sookie’s going in to help alleviate Bill’s crazy, and Jason’s coming too… really just so he can kill Authority vampires per his imaginary daddy’s suggestion.
Meanwhile, in the Authority dungeon where it seems everyone has had a turn, Jess is trying to explain the extreme craziness of Bill and Eric. Pam won’t believe it of Eric, of course, and she’s right.
Sookie and Jason go to the vampire killing store – you know, the one where Junior used to work. Jason gathers weapons, while encouraged by his imaginary ghost mom; Sookie protests ineffectually.
Jason and Sookie drive to the Authority, Jason still chatting with invisible parents. The topic? Whether you can really know someone or not. And whether Jason loves unavailable girls. And whether the Stackhouses are really the problem with their low standards. The imaginary parents are feeding Jason’s negativity. My suspicion: Warlow, who somehow has the ability to get faeries to sell their great-grandchildren and to weirdly appear in the air in Sookie’s bathroom, also has something to do with the sudden appearance of the dead parents, if it’s really them at all.
Salome asks Bill where the black Chancellor has gone. As you may remember, Bill cut off his head last week, which he admits to Salome. He also admits to Salome that Lilith visited him, but lies about the message: we know Lilith told him he was the chosen one, but Bill tells Salome that Lilith came to him to ask him to protect her as the true chosen one. Then, they bone.
