Makes sense. I know it's terrible to say but after this episode it would be extremely difficult to feel bad for her.

Honestly, I wouldn't be too surprised if Billith goes the Colossus route by the season finale and "dies" to cure Hep V. It would be a convenient way to burn out his Billith powers.


I could see Bill burning out his Lillith powers to get rid of the Hep V but still surviving. And then (much like the Superior Spider-Man when Peter returns), Bill will have to deal with the "Billith" (heh, I like that term) aftermath. It could be an interesting setup for next season, but, with such a long gap between seasons, I doubt they'd pick up that plot point and run with it.

The closest they ever came (and, IMO, the closest they'll get) is when Sookie took a trip to fairy land for a few hours at the beginning of season 4. When she got back, she learns that she experienced a Time Skip and that, while she was only gone for a little while, 18 months or so have passed for everyone else.

So, even if she DID die/disappear again, someone would probably remember this and act accordingly.

You know what would be cool? Seeing some episodes set during the time while Sookie (and Tara, actually) were gone. A lot of crazy stuff happened in a relatively short time while she was there, but it's quiet for 18 or so months? Please. We could see Layfayette kick some ass, Jason doing his thing on the force, etc..

Wait... Sookie took Warlow to Fairie land to get away from Billith's power over him. Warlow can tell when it's getting dark and has Sookie tie him up, so he doesn't hurt her. Sookie tells him that she "might be a 'danger whore' but she's not stupid" and then gets nekkid and stupidly bangs him. Apparently, when they do it, light comes from their genitals. :shock: :roll: Later, she has to go because she can sense her friend crying in the cemetary and assumes it's about her husband. She also asks for help getting back (when she brought him there originally), but that's another conversation in itself.

So...
if Sookie can sense when one of her friends is crying in a cemetary and has to return, why can't she sense when several of her friends and family are crying in a cemetary because they're at her funeral?!?

Has she gotten that much more proficient with her powers? Doubtful.
Has that much time passed? Not really. (Remember, the first 3 seasons didn't take up that much time. Arlene got knocked up by someone who died in season 1 and she hadn't had the kids yet by season 3)
Are the writers forgetting things and making up the rules as they go along? I could see that happening.

Why do I say that? Well... what's up with the time passing differently in Fairie? She's there for awhile in season 4 and folks think she's dead because she was missing for 18 months. Now, she takes Warlow there for the afternoon and is able to make it back right away. :smt102

Wow that was another rough episode but some of the story lines did start showing promise.

Billith may have had the best moment of the night when he finally told Sookie that her and her problems aren't really worth his time. Come to think of it, Bill's daylight scenes generally make up for all the Billith junk that we have been stuck with for far too long now.

Speaking of Sookie, I can't help but feel like this episode really was a commentary about her character in general. For most of the episode, she just wanders around aimlessly going from one guy to the next. Hell, I felt bad for Sam when she interrupted his conversation with Nicole and her mother, and gave him the speech about thinking that they would always end up together. I was just as confused as Sam was when Sookie offered to use the last of her fairy powers to become "normal" so that they could be together. It just felt like it came out of nowhere.

Honestly, I really hope that Alcide's storyline is done for the season and that all of the werewolf pack nonsense if finished. It really sucks that we spent all season dealing with Alcide being a prick, only for him to beat up 3 women, and then decide that he doesn't want to be a pack master anymore since we have known that he doesn't want to be a packmaster since the first time that we met him back in season 3! ARGH! Oh well, like I said I really hope that all this pack stuff is over with.

I really hate to keep going back to the Jessica/James story but I don't know what the writers are thinking here. Nothing that they are doing is making either character or their romance more endearing. If anything it's doing the exact opposite. I'm completely baffled by the fact that Jessica didn't do more to help Jason. Wouldn't a simple "Jason Stackhouse is mine" have sufficed? I'm a bit rusty on the ever-changing True Blood vampire rules but I thought even an older vampire had to respect another vampire's claim to a human.

I got the feeling that (somehow) James takes Eric's place in the burning-room vision. I'm guessing that Eric is now the one who gives his blood, now that he drank Warlow's, to save everyone. Although whether that includes James may depend on his viewer popularity :P

I am counting on whatever Eric does in the next 2 weeks to be the best thing that has happened on this show for this entire season.

Although whether that includes James may depend on his viewer popularity :P


Then I can't imagine he'll be around much longer. Like I said, there's nothing particularly endearing about James and the whole situation with Jessica can't be making him any fans... :smt102

Alceide beat the fuck out of the girl that challenged him as pack leader but didn't kill her.

Alpha vampire bitch claimed Jason as hers... forever.
Sookie made her way back to Fairie land and gives Warlow blood. Then she asks Warlow for a favor. He says okay but he wants her to be his... forever. He's been loving her for 6,000 years and is ready to start eternity with her. She leaves (to think about it) and Eric somehow makes it dark in Fairie land...

Jessica is snuggling with random vampire dude who asks about Jason. Then they get caught and taken back to gen pop. Jessica runs into post coitial Pam, also on her way back to gen pop.

Alceide returned the girl Sam banged and her mom to Sam. Guess he's through with the pack. Sam offers him a beer. Mom's kinda bitchy to Sam, so he offers his bed & sofa to them.(He didn't even do anything, IIRC). San sniffs her as they kiss.

Newlin talks with Jessica's fuckbuddy, who tells him "Don't drink the blood."

Sookie takes a shower and sees creepy Warlow from earlier.

Alceide & Sam are drinking alone in the bar, catching up and just shooting the shit. Alceide "caught Sam's scent" on the girl & Sam agreed. I guess that means she's knocked up.

Jason asks the alpha vamp not to rape him. She gets offended and tells them that WHEN they fuck, he'll have to beg & woo her and he'll still have to work for it.

Layfayette made breakfast for everyone else & told them about Terry's 4 day old, $2,000,000 life insurance policy. Arlene thought a confession and got mad at the 2 week old kid for eavesdropping.

Warlow offered to help Sookie but he wants her to marry him and become a vampire bride. Bill didn't really give two shits, he just wants to save his friends.

Newlin was "tortured" (not really) and told them that James, Jessica's fuck buddy, told them about the tainted True Blood. They put Newlin & James in the big room and he's crying and apologized.

That mom's still being a bitch to Sam (calling him "silver fox") and Sam catches up with Sookie. Sookie makes a light ball and tells Sam that this can kill vampires and, if she doesn't reabsorb it, she's no longer special. Sookie says she always wanted to settle down with Sam. Sam calls her out on her HORRIBLE timing (since she's always known) and tells her that the girl's pregnant but don't say anything about it, since the girl doesn't know.

Arlene is sitting in on funeral arrangements and loses her shit when the family wants a 21 gun salute because Terry was killed with a gun. Arlene wants Andy to go after the assassin and he says he will if she wants but he doesn't want to. She then tells them what she wants for the funeral.

Sookie goes to her parents gravesites and talks to them. Her happy memories are gone because she thinks they tried to have her killed To keep her away from vampires. She'd "rather walk the Earth as a corpse than spend another minute thinking about you (the parents) one more minute."

Sarah Newlin is trying to cover her ass and pull the whole "women sticking together" thing on the lady in charge of the True Blood. There's a lame ass fight between the two which ends with her falling on a grate, Sarah bashing her head in and drawing blood, a vamp sucks her blood from underneath and Sarah sticks a high heel through her head. Oh, and they threw in a superspeed vampire gay sex scene, too.

Sookie leaves Jason a message saying "Hey, have you heard about Terry? He's dead and the funeral is tomorrow. Oh, and have you seen or heard from Niall?"

Some guys picked up Andy's 2 week old daughter. Eric interrupts them, takes the memory of one of them getting her shirt off ("sorry to take that one from you") and makes them forget about her.

They're putting vamps in a big room and Jessica realizes they're "all going to meet the sun in here."

Andy finds his two week old daughter running down the street and comforts her.

Sookie dresses weird, takes Bill to Fairie land, but they find Warlow drained (dead?) and Bill says Eric did it


So I think the dumbest part was the "catfight"...?

Looks like Eric's REALLY going to kick some ass hopped up on Warlow blood so he can go out in the day next week.

In between that, they're showing Terry's funeral and flashbacks of him reconnecting with society (gradually, with his cousin and Sam).

This episode was a vast improvement over the past 3-4 episodes but a few things did still bother me.

Alcide need to start running for the hills. He just got rid of the terrible storyline that he was burdened with this season, he does NOT need Sookie sneaking in and stinking things up for him all over again. Speaking of Sookie, last week when she was practically throwing herself at Sam, didn't she imply that she has very little fairy power left? If she was forced to use that power on Bill this week does that mean that she is "normal" now? If so, how was she able to read Arlene's mind during the funeral? If not, how much power does Sookie have? Are they just going to keep dragging it out, allowing her to have just enough power to do whatever she needs to do until the series ends?

I thought that one of the points of this season was to reduce the size of the cast but I can't help feeling they are going about it in the wrong direction. Introducing more vampires and allowing them to walk away is a big mistake. I don't care about James or Violet, I care more about characters that have already been introduced and are being neglected because of characters like James and Violet. Concentrate on the existing cast.

I thought last season they said that she couldn't use her power constantly or waste it. Also, it was whenever she created that energy ball (that was all her power) to kill a vampire that would leave her normal. I'm assuming using her power to transport herself or someone else isn't all that draining. Or maybe being in Fairyland and/or near Warlow re-powers her :smt017
