True Blood Molotov Cocktail: Two Parts Vengeful Shifter, Four Parts Lethal Vampire, One Part Stupid Waitress
Every time I think this show is starting to get good, they shift the focus. I was extremely excited when Eric got his memory back. Now we don’t have to deal with “brain dead” Eric, but we see less and less of him in this episode. Fill up episodes with lack-of-personality Eric, sure, but when he’s the Eric we like to actually see, we get a ton of scenes of Andy Bellfluer instead. Thanks, HBO. I love how Eric bares his heart to Sookie, only to be shut down. He seems to feel pretty bitter about it. That’s the Eric that I want to see. The Eric who has enough confidence and self appreciation to be annoyed when Sookie tells him she’s still in love with Bill.
Honestly, this episode was exciting. On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being an hour of the home shopping network and 10 being a cliffhanger of Lost proportions, I would have to say that this episode was a 6. So, a bit more exciting than average, but not anything to write home about. The general feeling of this season, up to date, is that A LOT is going on, but nothing is really happening. Do you get my drift? Each episode is action-packed, full of action that, thus far, hasn’t really led us anywhere. That changed a bit this episode, and I can imagine that the last two episodes will lead somewhere. The question is, was the first six or seven episodes necessary to take us there? My answer is, probably no. They could probably have cut this season down to about four or five episodes and told the story successfully, without so much filler.
I really enjoyed the fact that it was Marnie who is the villain mastermind and not Antonia. Remember in the beginning when I kept telling you that Marnie knew more than she let on when she was working that magic? I was right! She acted all innocent, but she wasn’t, and we are finally seeing it come out. I would have been more impressed if Antonia wasn’t so easy to sway over to the dark side, but I did enjoy that look on Jesus’s face when he realized that Marnie was not as unsuspecting as he believed her to be.
So, last week I told you that I didn’t care about the Tommy story line and to consult me next week to see if it got more interesting? Well, it did. It really pulled at my heart strings, truthfully. For once, HBO saw fit to actually follow through with killing a character. I loved this scene. Tommy dies in a believable and almost gruesomely realistic way, instead of TV’s normal “and then he closes his eyes and dies” kind of scene. Sam, who really does love his brother, tries to comfort him. But Tommy says, “There ain’t no heaven, and hell’s the dog fight. I’m gonna disappear like I never was, and that’s what I want.” Absolutely heartbreaking, people. It’s also terribly sad that Sam has to reassure Tommy how loved he is as he dies. You know Sam has to tell him that because he worries that Tommy will die thinking the opposite. It was a very touching scene and one that is leading us a very angry Sam Merlotte, who goes to exact his revenge with Alcide at his side.
When they finally find Marcus, Alcide is gonna be surprised to see him making a move on Debbie. I can imagine it’s probably gonna make Alcide even angrier than he already is!
We finally get to see a Hoyt that seems to regret the loss of Jessica. Now his anger makes more sense. It’s almost as if he wants to be angry and think she’s a monster because it might make it easier to live without her. One thing I hate about Hoyt, though, is that he’s a little bit of a sniveling baby. It’s obviously annoying Jason, too, so I wonder how long it will be until Jason flips his lid and lets slip that he was intimate with Jessica.
The entire scene with Andy and Terry seems to be just filler. Though it was nice to see Terry try to talk sense into Andy, it was a bit anti-climactic. That’s all I’m going to say about it.
Bill and team are heading to blow up the Moon Goddess Emporium with what appears to be a grenade launcher? I’m not awesome at weapons, so maybe I’m wrong about what they were carrying? All I know is that they have no idea Sookie is now trapped inside with them. Cue suspense sound effect.
My problem with the end of this episode is that it closes on a scene where Bill and team get out of the car in slow motion to a really awful remake of “Burning Down the House,” all dressed in black and (still in slow motion) walking as if it’s the end of a bad Bruce Willis action flick, and that’s how the episode ends. How cliché. One of the best things about this show is the cliffhanger episode endings. This was simply nauseating. I think the writers are losing their creative flow. Unfortunately, as they lose it, I lose interest.
