This week I came in expecting something epic, I mean this is the episode before the finale, I’ll say this, it wasn’t “epic” but it was a really good episode, so far for this season I don’t think I’ve given anything a full 5/5 rating and as endings go if it were just the ending I would have given this episode a full rating but alas we have to count in the entire episode.
I’m wondering if Bill will come back to his senses in the finale or if we will have to wait till next season, the man is totally gone and now we’ve lost Kibwe although I wasn’t too impressed with the character, that has nothing to do with Peter Mensah’s acting skills I just think they didn’t develop that character properly.
I totally saw the Pam and Rosalyn thing coming, Pam would do anything to see Eric again and as if Rosalyn wasn’t hype before, Rosalyn on Lilith is a 10 on the hype scale.
So does Tara have a progeny crush on Pam? I never actually explored that at all till Jessica brought it up.
I wonder if Hoyt made it to Alaska yet? I’m thinking if they are staying true to the roots of this show the Hoyt ain’t going nowhere unless it’s in a body-bag.
I’m convinced the fairy elder learnt nothing from all the so-called information in her head, why the heck would she take so long to blast Russell Edgington? That should have been the first thing she did because at least she would have the shock factor. But then it wouldn’t be True Blood and it would be boring if she had triumphed over Russell so quickly, still I think they could have been more creative about it, I mean here is this fairy elder, arguably the most powerful fairy in the lot, and the only persons she managed to do anything to are a baby vamp and a human? She should have at least gotten him even a tiny bit and now I don’t know how the fae and Sookie are going to escape Russell, probably have to use their fairy power altogether.
I seriously can’t wait for the finale because I wanted to see how they square off the Bill/Authority situation, the Fae/Edgington situation, not to mention what ever happened to Warlow? They are really waiting till the finale to pop this guy out, they should just leave him till next season if they are going to do that and last but not least I want to see what they do with Hoyt, the Alcide and Sam and Luna storylines have become a bit uninteresting to me, but we’ll see what they will pack into next week and how much of a cliffhanger the end scene will be.

After watching last week I was convinced Bill is just putting on a show and he has some kind of plan, it just doesn’t make sense to me that he would just divert all of a sudden, one main reason is I know he still loves Sookie even if he has given up on being with her, so I doubt he would do something that could effectively cause her death also all his morals that he has can’t just slip away over night or just because Salome gave him some speech about Lilith, if it turns out I’m wrong I’ll be disappointed because then in my opinion the show’s development of Bill’s character would be horribly skewed, if they want to make Bill evil they need to come better than that, the transition from good to evil here was all wrong.
I’m hoping that Sookie meets up with this Warlow dude in this episode only because I think it will make for some good action and possibly an awesome back story, I love me some flashbacks, he obviously seems to have nothing to do with the authority, at least from what I’m picking up on so far.
The whole Terry thing, I’m not sure how it’s going to turn out but I don’t think Terry will be dying, I’ll say that.
Nora has been annoying me since she became a fanatic, I mean I get she was hiding it before but I find her seriously irritating right now, I hope Eric deals with her case.
Of course the episode had to start with some dude’s schlong all over the screen, HBO does nothing less.
I wonder how this TruBlood factory crisis is going to unravel, this should be very interesting.
The whole Terry storyline actually doesn’t interest me as much so you probably won’t hear me mentioning it for the rest of this post, unless I see some Ifrit action then that may change.
The Ifrit thing turned out to be totally unsatisfying if you ask me, I mean I already knew Terry would survive but I think it could have went down more epically, I guess they don’t have the time though since they have so many stroy lines going on this season.
Of course Russell Edgington was the one giving Alcide’s pack vampire blood, I figured it was something like that, he’s basically the only one I know of who uses Wolves to protect himself, I figures he would get pretty close to Newlin.
The Bill and Salome scene was very intense, I wonder how come Bill is seeing all those things, is it that Salome has been drinking Lilith’s blood on more than one occasion and her blood is saturated with it? Well in any case it makes more sense now that Bill could have gotten confused but I think he will get back on track pretty soon.
Well a couple episodes back I was thinking that Salome really did like Bill and seems as if I may just be right about that, Eric or somebody is going to have to find a way to get Bill back to normal, it seems like Salome’s blood is the problem with both him and Nora or Bill still has some kind of crazy plan, but he would really be going all out for this plan if that’s the case.
By the way, what ever happened to the werepanthers?
I knew since they reintroduced Bud last week that something was up with him so it wasn’t that surprising that he got mixed up with that dragon lady.
Next week should be highly interesting, with Emma being kidnapped by Russell and Warlow is still to come.
Till next week.
