Eric is consistently one of the best parts of the show. Unfortunately, even though Alexander Skarsgård gave one of his best performances to date it wasn't enough to save the rest of the episode for me.
I was glad when the show almost immediately began to backpedal on the whole Jason Stackhouse randomly violently hates vampires again storyline that was started at the end of last season, especially when it looked like they were going to go back to the Jason/Jessica romance. Then, we get that shoehorned crap they tried to spoon feed us last night and I've got to tell you that I'm strongly considering cutting all ties with this show. Jessica feels like she is evil and needs to pay for what she did to Andy's daughters. Ok, I get it. She doesn't want to leave Camp because of how horrible she feels. That's fine, we knew there was going to be some type of struggle because Jason was never going to be able to just walk in to the Camp and rescue her without some type of problem. But Jessica asking Jason to go get the male vampire so that she could have sex with him, while Jason was standing right outside of the room, because she wanted to feel "humanity" was just plain ludicrous. Not only is it ludicrous but it kinda insults me as a viewer. I am invested in Jason and Jessica's relationship. It has been built over the course of several episodes and it has been earned by both characters. This whole thing with the male vampire felt rushed and unnecessarily cruel to the viewers AND few remaining sympathetic characters on the show. There was just so much wrong with those parts of the episode that it blows almost every Sookie dumb decision out of the water.
Apparently Alcide is finally coming off of the V that he ingested last season to become the packmaster, because this might have been the first episode that we have seen this season where he wasn't a complete asshole to everybody around him. I'm sure that he is going to be in a lot of trouble in the next few episodes but his storyline has given me so much werewolf fatigue that I just wish it was over. Since he has been such a complete asshole all season long, it's really hard for me to care about the fact that his entire world is probably about to come crashing down around him.
I will say that I did enjoy the novelty of seeing Bill arrive during the daytime to give Arlene his condolences, finally acknowledge the fact that 3 of Andy's daughters were killed in his house, and make a request of Sookie. Seeing everybody completely speechless because a known vampire is just strolling around in the daylight was great and as always, Lafayette's reaction was priceless. Even though his arc is infinitely better than it was last season, I'm still not ready to completely forgive Bill. After all, he does still have a man locked up in his dungeon and although he is trying to be somewhat altruistic, he is still being a huge dick about it.
