I honestly feel like crying. My heart is breaking by proxy, and I’m just glad that Eric is his BAMF self again that he can take what Sookie said with aplomb, and let her figure out Bill’s idiocy on her own. I would have drained her. Thank goodness I’m not a vampire or in love with a stupid, insipid, wishy-washy, vapid, weak, only-good-for-her-blood-and-a-lay, bitch. Somebody, PLEASE, explain to me why Sookie said to Eric that she still loves Bill?! Please! I’m begging here! No woman in her right mind would EVER utter words such as those to her new love interest, particularly when she says she loves said new interest as she said she loves Eric. WTF-landia, here we come! Again. Might as well have bought the f-ing season pass. I have no words… words have failed me. My darling husband had to listen to my vocal rant, and later had to scoop me up from the floor where I lay comatose next to Willie, my cat. They were both very concerned for my wellbeing.
Wait, it gets better. Eric TOLD Sookie that nothing had changed, and she insisted that he had changed. If we’re talking about Eric, and Eric himself TELLS you he hasn’t changed, then believe it, lady! He’s telling you so! You could see the pain in the man’s (vampire, whatever) face – which, by the way, great acting from Alex, excellent! I hereby choose to wrap up my rant about Sookie with the following open-ended question: Why do these men love her? I’m talking TB Sookie, not SVM Sookie. For all her faults SVM Sookie would have never done something so tremendously unintelligent as to tell Eric, “I can’t imagine a world without Bill in it.” Boo-hoo! I can, let me do it.
Shake it off, shake it off… Who else was amused at Nan’s channeling of the Red Queen? “Off with Bill’s head!” “Off with Eric’s head!” “Off with Pam’s head too, just for $hits and giggles!” Jessica was Alice in all this, I presume. She just wanted to kill things. She can start with Nan… and who knows? Maybe she did! Nan wasn’t part of the A-Team. Did y’all see it, the nod to the A-Team? Sorry, I thought that was incredibly witty, particularly Jessica carrying the rocket launcher. And I must say that Bill looks good in combat blacks (?). Not that Eric didn’t, I’m just saying that the soft spot I still have for poor Stephen Moyer is alive and well.
So now we know that one of the major characters that got killed was Tommy… at least I’m hoping that’s what Alan Ball was referring to when he was talking about major characters dying and what-not. Hopefully the other one won’t be Eric, but if it is (hear me out, ’cause it just might be), then I can stop watching True Blood without feeling guilty. See? There’s always a silver lining. I’m saying this because there are rumors that the Viking will give himself to Martonia in exchange for Sookie, and that he will be bound with silver and burned at a stake. These are just rumors, now! Don’t kill me, I’m just passing along the RUMORS. The way I see it, Eric will do anything short of dying to prove to Sookie that he loves her more than Bill (we’re back to that, sorry). I do see Eric going gaga for Sookie enough to offer himself, but not without a plan in place so that he doesn’t meet the true death. However, this picture does not engender hopeful feelings in me…
Behind Eric you will notice that Bill is also chained to the burning stake. I don’t know if this will be the final scene of the final episode or what. I see a couple of people watching the vampires burn, but I can’t tell what they are… witches, vampires, humans? Werewolves, fairies leprechauns? Who knows? If anybody has heard any more rumors, by all means, please share, ’cause I’ve just about had it with the whole thing.
I’m happy that Holly is centered enough to want to fight magic with magic. She was grace under fire, even managing to talk some sense into Tara the hothead. As for Martonia, I didn’t see it coming that Marnie was all for Antonia’s plan, or that she would talk Antonia into continuing with their efforts to kill vampires. I have a feeling that Jesus won’t be able to help much anyway, because Marnie agreed to this from the beginning. Hopefully, now that Sookie, Jesus, Lafayette, and Holly are all together, they can somehow defeat Marnie and Antonia both.
And here’s some nice Skarsporn (not really), something not from the episode and WAY less depressing…
