True Blood Season Finale: “And When I Die”

Warning: LOTS of spoilers!

I think the finale can be summarized in just three letters: OMG. Don’t worry though, I’ll elaborate.

The episode started with Jesus cooking breakfast for Lafayette and apologizing for all of the chaos caused by their witchcraft. It took him awhile to realize Lafayette wasn’t himself, but instead it was Marnie in his body. Unfortunately he didn’t figure it out fast enough – Marnayette stabbed him in the hand with a fork, then tied him to a chair and proceeded to threaten him for his magic. Jesus was begging and pleading for Lafayette to overpower Marnie, which happened for all of three seconds. He had one of the funny lines of the night when he said “You can’t trade magic like f—in’ Pokémon cards!” He was insisting his didn’t know how to give Marnayette his magic but quickly gave it a shot when she started cutting Lafayette’s body. Jesus chanted his brujo spell until his head turned into a bull (I’ll always find that creepy) and then Marnayette stabbed him and licked the blood off the knife, causing her head to turn into a bull as well. More on the results of Jesus’ death later.

True Blood Episode 11: “Soul of Fire”

Warning: Spoilers ahead!

We’re in the homestretch – just one more episode to go! I should’ve known that when it seemed like everything was wrapping up all nice and tidy for the witch storyline that it couldn’t possibly be true. And boy was I right! But we’ll get to that later…

This episode picked up right up with the witches, who didn’t get blown up after all. Jason stopped Bill and Eric by reminding them how many times Sookie saved their lives. Did anyone else love the chorus of “F—in’ Sookie,” because I sure did! Inside, Marnie stabbed one of her followers (read: hostages), which was the last straw for Antonia. Lafayette was the only one who could see Antonia escape from Marnie’s body, prompting his quote of the week: “Oh sh–. Marnie just puked a bitch out.” They fought, but ultimately Marnie overpowered Antonia and sucked her back into her body.

Jesus told Marnie the follower wasn’t actually dead and asked if he could take her into the bathroom to save her, which Marnie agreed to. Really, though, he was using her for his own spell to overtake Marnie. Outside, the two possessed vampires that Marnie was holding captive tried to attack Bill and Eric, but that didn’t really work out so well. Bill and Eric told Marnie to stop hiding behind magic and go outside to talk to them, so she took Sookie to negotiate. She said she would set Sookie free in exchange for Bill and Eric’s lives. They agreed (Bill agreed first, I might add. Infer from that what you will), much to the disappointment of Jessica, Pam and Sookie. Unwilling to let her maker die for Sookie, Pam took the rocket launcher and shot toward the magic wall – even after Eric forbade her. Since the wall reflects things that hit it, the rocket launcher backfired injuring and blinding Jason. Luckily Jessica was there with more of her healing blood. Pam tried to apologize to Eric, but instead he told her to get out of his sight before he kills her. Yikes! What’s going to happen with that?

True Blood Episode 10: “Burning Down the House”

Warning: This post contains spoilers from this week’s episode.

Drama, drama and more drama! I love it! But there is SO MUCH to resolve in just two episodes!

The episode picked up right where it left off last week, thankfully. I wouldn’t have been able to wait and see what happened to Bill at the hands of spellbound Eric. Sookie tried her damndest to break up the fight…she jumped on Eric on get him off Bill, she begged Bill not the shoot Eric…I wonder how she expected the fight to end without one of them hurting the other. Thankfully that magic hand of hers that shoots out lightning bolts (or whatever they are) was able to stop Eric – AND reverse the spell Antonia had put on him. I know this sounds strange, but somehow Eric is physically hotter with his memory. There was something about the way he said “get off me” when Bill had him by the throat.

Back at Bill’s house, Eric told Sookie he remembers everything about their time together and still loves her. She told him she loves him too, but she realized when he was about to kill Bill that she can’t imagine a world without him it in and loves him as well. Similar to her threesome dream, Eric wasn’t fond of this idea.

True Blood Episode 9: “Let’s Get Out of Here”

Warning: This post contains spoilers from this week’s episode.

Can you believe there are only 3 episodes left? I feel like they have SO MUCH to settle before the season can end!

As you may have guessed, Sookie’s gunshot wound didn’t kill her. I loved seeing Bill care for her, and I loved it even more when she thanked him for the blood and he said “anytime.” (Side note: did anyone else laugh when Alcide asked Bill why Sookie was fighting and Bill said “Werewolf, I’m gonna need you to shut the f— up.”? That probably wasn’t meant to be funny, but I loved it!) In case you missed it last week, I decided I’m over Sookie & Eric and ready for Sookie & Bill to be back on. Alcide told Sookie he’s done with her after she didn’t take her near-death experience as a sign to stay away from “fangers.” Somehow I don’t believe that’ll stick…

Sookie had a sex dream about Bill, which was to be expected after drinking his blood. But what made this one interesting was the presence of Eric. I guess that makes sense too, as she drank his blood the day before. After stopping them from fighting over her, she told them that she doesn’t have to be Eric’s or Bill’s, but rather they can be hers. After some reluctance from the men, they came around and both bit her neck at once, causing Real Sookie to wake up. Surprisingly, I wasn’t really feeling the threesome…I guess maybe because I really am over Sookie & Eric. He just seemed like an obstacle.

True Blood Episode 8: “Spellbound”

Warning: This post contains spoilers from Sunday’s episode.

Oh boy! This is getting intense! Actually, it’s been intense the whole time, but now it’s getting CRAZY intense! I tried something new this week and didn’t take notes while I watched (and I must say I enjoyed the episode much more), so let’s hope my memory can keep up!

First of all, Jason and Jessica! Their kiss in Bill’s foyer made me so happy! And did you notice the way he was petting her head as she was feeling guilty about killing the guard? Adorable! I really love them together and hate that it’s complicated by Jason’s friendship with Hoyt.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad Jason is loyal to Hoyt since their friendship should hold more weight than his blood-induced infatuation, but it’s still an obstacle that I’m not fond of. Poor Jessica had two house invitations rescinded in the same day! I can’t say I blame Hoyt for doing that, and I’m actually glad he stood up for himself, but Jason’s just seemed mean. I’m hoping this isn’t the end of these two. (Side note: was I the only one who was fooled by Jessica’s dream? For a second there I thought Hoyt was really dunzo – but then I realized Jason wouldn’t play the role of Man Meat quite so soon after his BFF’s death).

True Blood Episode 7: “Cold Grey Light of Dawn”

Warning: This post contains spoilers from Sunday’s episode.

I’m so over these witches. I’m hoping that in the Witches v. Vampires war, the vampires annihilate every last one of them. And this may be an unpopular opinion, but if Tara insists on trying to fight, maybe it’s ok if they kill her. No? We’re not there yet? Fair enough.

The Witches v. The Vampires

Let’s start here as it was the biggest part of the episode. Under Antonia’s spell, Luis went to Bill’s office and shot him with (probably) a silver bullet. Bill got the upper hand, though, and held a stake over Luis while asking him what Antonia wanted. Luis told Bill she was back for a resurrection and then staked himself.

Bill updated Jessica on the situation, explaining that Antonia wants all vampires to meet the sun so she can finish what she started in 1610. It turns out all the vampires who came out into the sun while she was burning were under her spell to do so. I guess I missed that detail the first time, but it makes sense. Bill gathered all the sheriffs and told them they need to silver themselves when they sleep so they won’t be pulled into the sun by the spell.

Bill even went to Sookie’s to warn Eric! Who can hate Bill after that? It would’ve been so easy for him to just let Eric fall under the spell and die, but he didn’t do that. He explained that Eric would be safest if he went with him, but just as Bill suspected, Eric said he wasn’t going to leave Sookie. Bill told Sookie “if you care anything for him you will do this, or it will be his last day on Earth” and left chains for him.

True Blood Episode 6: “I Wish I Was the Moon”

Warning: This post contains spoilers from last night’s episode.

If I haven’t made it abundantly clear already, I’m a BIG supporter of Eric and Sookie. Last week’s episode ended with their much anticipated make-out session, and this week’s episode picked right back up with it! And it only got better from there… But we’ll get to that later.

Eric, Sookie and Bill

As I mentioned, the episode started with their heavy petting session that was so rudely interrupted by Bill. Eric went straight into protective mode and the two began to fight. Just as Eric was ready to stake Bill with a fire poker (he’s so resourceful), Sookie informed him that he’s the king. Nice Eric immediately bowed down and said, “My liege, forgive me.” That right there should have shown Bill that Eric is not a threat, but it did not.

Back at Bill’s place, where he had Eric locked up in a cell, Sookie pleaded for his release saying “If you ever loved me, you won’t hurt him.” Personally, I think Sookie needs to stop playing the “if you ever loved me” card, but I guess if it works, it works. But in this case, it didn’t. Bill told her to, for once, stay out of vampire affairs and informed his guards to have her arrested for trespassing if she ever sets foot on his property. Harsh.
