BEWARE! CONTAINS SPOILERS AND OFFENSIVE LANGUAGE! YOU'VE BEEN WARNED!
Hello fellow Bite Clubbers and Truebies. Sunday's episode wasn't as 'OMG WTF' as the premiere but, we definitely had some interesting plot twists and weird stuff going on. So without further ado, let's get down to the good stuff.
SookieLet's see where did we leave off? Oh yeah, Eric was explaining to Sookie how he owned her now. As you can imagine, Sookie didn't take too kindly to that kind of news. Eric basically goes on to offer her protection because people will start to figure out what she is and she's going to need someone to protect her. Not liking how this is starting to turn out, she heads over to Bill's house to see if he can help a sister out. As soon as she steps foot onto his property she's held at gunpoint by his security team. Sookie finds out what we at home already know, that Bill is now the King of Louisiana. She asks him if there's any way he can help her buy back her house and/or get Eric off her back. Bill says there's not much he can do but, he'll see if he can work something out. Sookie starts to ask Bill how he became the King but, cuts him off before he can say anything because 'every time she finds out something about him she later wishes she didn't know'. Sook heads in to work the next day and tries to make amends with Sam. She tells him that as soon as she can talk about what happened to her that she'll tell him everything. This seems to put him in a better mood. Arlene and Terry walk in with baby Mickey and Sookie gets to finally meet the little tyke. After her shift she heads back home and is surprised by a visit from Tara. She also has some sort of scary Fairie vision but, it's fleeting. They head into the house and discover notes left by Eric attached to either repaired or new things. She also discovers that he's built a hidey hole in her house. That Eric. He's a slick one. Later that evening she heads to Fangtasia to have a word with her new roomie. After some very funny dialogue with Pam she heads to the restroom and discovers Jessica behaving rather unladylike. This puts her over the edge and she decides to head back home. On the way there she discovers a rather disoriented Eric walking along the side of road. And this is where it should get real inneresting....
BillSo after Bill gets the skinny from his witch spy, Katerina, he proceeds to um, thank her for her services. *shivers* In the middle of their um, horizontal mambo action he senses Sookie on the property. Too bad he doesn't have enough time to cover up the evidence of their little "meeting". After agreeing to try to help Sookie we're shown one of two flashbacks. Rewind to 1982 where we see a punk rock version of Bill snacking on a bartender. After he's done getting his fill he runs into Nan Flanagan (yes, THAT Nan Flanagan). She explains that she's been looking for vampires like him to join her organization. She needs help infiltrating the monarchies. I know, it didn't make much sense to me either until his next flashback. Eric drops in for a visit and and Bill tries to convince him to give Sookie back her house. Obviously Eric refuses which obviously pisses off Bill. Bill then orders him to check out the coven because they're said to be dabbling in necromancy. Eric starts to say that he'll send Pam and Bill demands that he check it out himself. Then we get launched into flashback numero dos. We see his face off with Sophie-Anne. For those of us who were wondering how the hell Bill defeated a vampire way older than him, we finally get the answer. Turns out Nan (yes, that Nan) sends in a death squad to off Sophie-Anne so that Bill can take over. Told ya the first flashback would make sense after seeing/reading the second one. Quite an interesting little twist, no?
EricOh that sneaky ass Eric. Hate to say it because you guys are going to throw stuff at me but, I loved how this episode ended. But before I get to that let me see what I can add to this section that I haven't already touched on in Sookie and Bill's sections. Hmm...tells Sookie he owns her...gives her new stuff and builds hidey hole in her house....gets ordered by Bill to investigate witches....well looks like that stuff's been covered so let's get to the highlight of the episode (at least for me). Eric heads to the coven and after a dramatic entrance tells Marnie that she is to disband the coven immediately. She attempts to negotiate with him which only leads him to attack her. Tara tries to stake him unsuccessfully and when he's about to go in on her Holly begins to chant. Everyone takes her lead and they end up closing Eric in a circle. Marnie casts her spell and while she does her eyes start to glow and she begins to flash in and out as another woman. You can see that Eric starts to become entranced and once the spell stops he takes off.
Poor Jason. He wakes up tied to a bed with one of the Hot Shot kids licking his head wound. This is definitely bad news. He then finds out that Fenton is behind his kidnapping which is more bad news. The icing on the cake is when Crystal walks in and tells Jason that Fenton's got her hopped up on V. His only chance to be rescued is Andy who drives into Hot Shot looking for V. Fenton recognizes the withdrawal symptoms and makes one of the residents give Andy a vial of V. Once Andy has what he's looking for he takes off. Crystal and Fenton finally reveal why they're holding Jason captive. Since Fenton's shooting blanks, they plan to turn Jason into a panther so that they can continue their blood line. Did I mention that I really, really dislike Crystal AND Fenton. I hope they both get offed this season. Anywhoozle, they shift and start to bite Jason. Hope Jason can at least get out of this before Crystal jumps his bones.
PamUnfortunately, we don't get much of Pam. The only time we get to see her is when Sookie heads to Fangtasia to see Eric. Pam gives her some Pam style advice and heads off into the bar.
While exiting the club Hoyt ends up getting into a fight with several protesters. The next night Jessica wakes up and tries to help Hoyt tend to his wounds. Hoyt being the dummy he is sometimes makes a comment about Jessica's blood that infuriates her. She ends up leaving the house and heading to Fangtasia. Once inside she turns on the vamp predator switch and picks a meal for the evening. While she's feeding in the restroom, Sookie walks in and hears her. Sookie tries talking to her but, Jessica doesn't want to hear it. Things aren't looking good for the happy couple.
TaraAfter surprising Sookie, she heads over to Lafayette's house to say hi. He tells her that they're heading to a coven meeting and she decides to tag along. And this is where the shit hits the fan for her. After attempting to stay out of the craziness she gets dragged right back in. Not sure what consequences she'll face for trying to stake Eric but, I'm sure she'll have to deal with some. I almost wish she'd stayed in New Orleans. I hate seeing her sucked back into this.
LafayetteOh Lafayette. When will you learn to keep your butt out of trouble? After helping cast the circle that eventually leads to Eric's amnesia, I am certain that things are going to get very, very bad for Lafayette.
Arlene & Terry
Poor baby Mickey. I think Arlene's givin' him a bad wrap. After running into Sookie at Merlotte's who makes the mistake of saying the baby has an old soul, Terry and Arlene head to the kitchen. She takes a look at Mickey and ends up with a popped blood vessel in her eye. She thinks the baby's responsible and storms out. I think she's taking this a little too far but, I guess only time will tell.
'Your blood tastes like freedom Sookie. Like sunshine in a pretty blond bottle.'
-Eric to Sookie
'You two lovebirds go on home okay. Let these good people practice their constitutional right to be fucking idiots.'
-Pam to Jessica and Hoyt
'Well he's not an old soul. He's new alright? He's brand fucking new!'
-Arlene to Sookie
'Now go clean yourself up. You're covered in queen.'
-Nan Flanagan to Bill
'Did I miss something? Are we girls now? Did we join a book club and read some queer chick lit memoirs and now we're bonded together by estrogen or sisterhood or some other feminist dribble?'
-Pam to Sookie
'Oh shut up and make up a new chant already!'
-Sookie to protesters
