This week’s installment of everyone’s favorite fang-drama had less gratuitous fornication and violence, and focused a little more on progressing the various, intricately interwoven plot threads throughout the episode.
Let’s start with Sook. She really didn’t do too much this week, which was a somewhat welcome change-up from the bulk of the series. Alcide covered for her homicide (as per usual), Lafayette’s witch-alter-ego attempted to kill her, but she just barely survived (as per usual), and then she got wasted and hooked up with Alcide (finally!).
Tara and Pam
Now, let’s get to the good stuff! Eric released Pam from being his, but encouraged her to take care of their bloodline/his legacy by being an attentive maker for Tara. She basically forced Tara to feed on a human, but it seems to be what’s best for her at this point. Have I lost my mind, or is Pam is no longer a villain? This should be fun! I have a feeling she is going to hate this in future episodes.
Eric and Bill
Eric and Bill are trying to figure out who freed Russell Edgington… that’s about it for them.
It was discovered there was a mole in the authority; well, another mole that is. The chancellor that was cursed to be a 12 year old for all eternity, was apparently a leader of the anti-mainstreaming group. Once discovered, he was sentenced to the true death, which really is a two-point win for this week: Get rid of that annoying kid, and Christopher Meloni finally went all Elliott Stabler on someone, even if it was just for a moment, still “fangastic.”
At long last, we were given a little insight into Terry’s disturbing past while in the military. By way of a dream, we get a snippet of a memory where an entire village of innocent citizens in Iraq was slaughtered, and it was more or less the fault of Terry and his squad; they started partying and chaos ensued, as it always does. When he and Patrick arrive at their mutual war-buddy’s place, they find a hidden bunker, and their ex-friend armed and insane; have to wait till next week for the rest of that.
Jason and Andy
Jason Stackhouse and Andy Bellefleur met the fairies. Remember that judge Andy helped out by expunging his sons speeding ticket? That judge showed up, and brought Jason and Andy to a fairy party, with a secret portal entrance in the middle of a barren field. As if discovering the Fairy Vegas wasn’t enough, complete with fairy strippers (and probably fairy hookers), the biggest reveal of the week shows up, when Jason’s cousin tells him vampires killed his parents. Now the question will become, which vampires? Was it Russell, trying to harvest fairy blood? Did Bill and/or Eric have something to do with it?
Obviously, my high point is Christopher Meloni showing no mercy. I think the true hi point is going to be discovering the Fairy-brothel. This should keep everyone occupied for a long time. Jason and Andy trying to find it again, which will of course lead to Sookie’s involvement, and shift her back to the central focus of the show. There’s also the relative they found working there who told Jason half the truth about his ‘rents; that should open up a whole new can of proverbial worms.
Low point? Bill saw Alcide and Sookie hooking up, but so out of context, that this is bound to cause confusion and drama later on. Misunderstandings like this only serve to “soap-operize” the show too much, when communication could easily clear up the confusion. Look forward to a Bill/Sookie argument/silent treatment/moping later on this season.
Ok, now your turn. What was your high point and low point? Post em in the comments section. What do you think will happen next week? What is Terry’s army buddy’s deal? Who dug up Russell Edgington, and when will he show up again? Who killed the Stackhouse parents, and why? Post all of your predictions and rants in the comments section, then we’ll see who’s right and who’s wrong next week.
