I’ve been sitting here, staring at my wall for a bit. It’s been about 20 minutes since the most recent episode of True Blood has finished airing and I can’t seem to collect my thoughts. I am not loving the foreshadowing going on this season. I am not ready to possibly say goodbye to some of my favorite characters. This episode contained both elements necessary to bring the hilarity and tug at my heartstrings at the same time.
Here is our recap for tonight’s new episode of True Blood: “You’re No Good.”
The Wind in the Willa
Eric is looking extra fine tonight. I’m not sure what it is but I’m thinking it’s the fancy, black suit that looks like a million bucks that might be doing it for him. Eric has successfully kidnapped Willa, the governor’s daughter. She’s not the crazed vampire hunter he was expecting. Instead, she’s the cliche rebellious daughter who actually might have a thing for Eric. Yawn.
Eric instructs Pam and Tara to pack up whatever they’re feeling nostalgic about because they’re going to say goodbye to Fangtasia for the last time. Wait, really?? It was a nice touch at the end when Eric gave one final glance back at his throne. The gang hide out with Willa at Ginger’s but end up having to run and hide when the governor manages to trace their whereabouts.
Willa does manage to give Eric some useful information. She reveals that her father has been working on what can be described as a vampire torture camp. Half torture chamber and half prison and research facility to study vampires. One of our favorites has already landed himself a comfy chair at said torture chamber.
Praise His Light
Poor Steve Newlin. Praise his light! I love him so much. Us, fans, finally get the highly anticipated reunion scene between Michael McMillian and Anna Camp. And can I just say, I hope this scene gets a ton of love. The exchange between the ex-couple is effortlessly sassy and hilarious and I can’t wait to watch it again. Bravo to the duo.
Over in snooze-ville,
the wolves are still acting like dbags on steroids. They are still holding on to Emma and are not thrilled when that annoying Vampire Unity league shows up to catch them on camera. They successfully kill 3 out of 4 and Sam saves the other, along with Emma.
Andy is so cute. He semi-proposes to Holly after taking her to Fort Bellefleur, the place he and Terry spent their childhood. Poor Andy. He has his hands full. His daughters are now around 13 years old. Do all faeries grow this fast? Unfortunately for them, they may be in more danger. More on that in a bit.
He Gets What He Wants
I don’t know who the bigger a-hole is, Warlow or Bill. Sookie believes it’s Bill. For now anyways. Bill believes his visions mean he can walk in the sun so he tries it. Hilariously, at least to me, he erupts into flames, flailing and shrieking back into the house. Serves you right.
Bill demands Sookie come with him so he can synthesize her blood and fulfill his Godly duties. She promptly tells him to f*ck off and he tells her she’s dead to him. Yeah, okay buddy. While walking home, Bill can smell Andy’s daughters. Are they a better substitution?
Sookie has enough to worry about. Suddenly, all of Jason’s crazy behavior and wacky hallucinations make sense. He more than likely has a serious brain injury that progressively gets worse throughout the episode until he’s unconscious on the floor at the end of the episode. I’ve been worrying for weeks about Jason’s foreshadowing and I really hope he isn’t the major character that has been rumored to be killed off.
Also, Ben Flynn is back after a the Faery club is massacred and Fairy Grandfather invites him to help fight against Warlow. At this point, I’m majorly suspicious that Ben is Warlow. Just a hotter version.
Funniest Quotes of the Night:
Sookie: You’re not God, Bill. You’re just an asshole.
Fairy Grandfather: Warlow is the proverbial shit hitting the fan.
Andy: *While inspecting the new vampire repellant contact lenses* Fucking science.
