Vamps v. Shifters, Faeries, Humans, & each other
This week, we open again on the laziest exposition device known to TV: the news story. Apparently, the effort to rebuild the Tru Blood factories is going slowly; there is a 50% spike in vampire-on-human attacks (that’s it?? I would have thought way more); and Steve Newlin is still running a screen for the Authority, telling humans not to panic.
My favorite Authority side character is no longer Yes, Molly aka Mac aka the friend on Big Love was taken out this week with an I-stake to the heart. Killed by her very own app. Commentary on modern society.
and who knew she was so tiny and bangin’ under there??
The I-Stake, by the way, stabs you in the center of the chest rather than the heart. Whaaa?
Steve is greatly entertained by seeing his first true death, and Russell is excited to go out and hunt. Salome is being her usual religious wet blanket self, but Russell and Steve go out anyway. They massacre a room full of people, then sweetly slowdance to Teenage Dream among the remains. Russell shares his dreams of day-walking – a la fairy blood.
After the betrayal last week, it’s pretty clear that Bill actually has found religion. Why the biggest mainstreamer of all time (remember the historical society meeting?) has now joined Team Lilith is beyond me. Bill and Nora still haven’t given up on Eric, and force him to drink Lilith’s blood so he can “meet Lilith” again. Nora comes along for the ride.
Rather than Lilith, it’s the glowing, angelic Godric that shows up first. Eric is thrilled to see him, but Nora is horrified – she is sworn to Lilith now. On cue, Lilith shows up. Despite his progeny’s begging, Lilith rips out Godric’s throat, and he explodes.
His last words are to tell Nora and Eric to fight Lilith. So… Godric’s double-dead now? All the while, Bill is watching the scene unfold – minus the God and Lilith hallucinations – from a creepy control room.
Afterwards Eric FINALLY pledges allegiance to Lilith and forgives Russell. I would bet fifty million dollars that this is a wolf-in-crazy-Lilith-worshippers clothing situation.
Steve is doing a great job on TV. The anti-vamp contingent is pretty much on to them with his conspiracy theories, but Steve makes him look crazy. Russell watches admiringly with wolfie Emma in his lap.
The shifters are trying everything they can think of to get Emma back. Sam’s pretending to be a Minnesotan asking for an interview with Steve Newlin. Luna’s been to every police station, but it’s kind of hard to show proof that Steve Newlin kidnapped your child when your child is a baby wolf and noone knows werewolves exist.
