Last night’s episode of True Blood was a welcome breath of fresh air after the stinker that was last week’s turd. One thing that I particularly liked was that not one bit of the episode felt predictable. I was constantly on the edge of my seat, and shocked by what was going down. And even better still, while the battle lines between vamps and witches (and werewolves and shifters) have been drawn, there are now fractions amongst the factions, which only makes for far more compelling television!!
The episode picked up right where the last one left off, with Marnia wreaking havoc at The Dorchester Hotel in her attempt to use puppet vamp Eric to assassinate Queen Beel. Of all the people who could have come to Beel’s rescue, it turned out to be meek lil Sook herself, who bitch slapped Eric with the brightest faery light we’ve ever seen. The blast helped him regain his memory, and with Marnia’s spell broken, she was forced to retreat. The attack led to Beel deciding to wage an all out war against the witchy bitch, and he ordered MoonGoddess Emporium to be bombed!
Meanwhile… Tommy died! Hallelujah!! I was jumping for joy, but Sam was not so enthusiastic, and sought revenge against wolfpack master Marcus, who was a little preoccupied putting the moves on Alcide’s girlfriend, Debbie… Jason felt guilty about sleeping with bestie Hoyt’s ex-girlfriend Jessica, and wanted her to glamour him, but she refused… Arlene and Terry confronted Sheriff Andy about his drug abuse, and only after a heart-to-heart with his cousin could Andy come clean and confess that he was addicted to V… Tara and Holly joined forces to try to break Marnia’s spell and get the hell out of MoonGoddess Emporium… Sook, Jason, Lala, and Jesus joined forces to try to break IN to MoonGoddess Emporium to save their friends before the vamps came and bombed the gin joint!
In the end, Jesus managed to get inside, only to discover that it is Marnie running the show, NOT witchy ghost Antonia! Tara and Holly broke the protection spell and tried to make a run for it. Sook and Lala tried to help them escape, but Marnia intervened at the last minute, and Jason watched as all four of them vanished into thin air!! And as night fell, Queen Beel, Eric, Pam, and Jessica pulled up in front of MoonGoddess Emporium, dressed head to toe in bad-ass black leather, ready to annihilate some witchy ass! Stay tuned for the full recap!!
