I am enjoying this season so far better than last season. To Answer Nekmaster as to why he drank the blood was probably to refuel him and also to "bond" with him. Remember by drinking the blood of a vampire bonds the two. SO he probably drained gpa in order to save him and be bonded to him and his bloodline. I loved this season. Still am trying to deduce if Warlow is good or evil...
I am getting at what Bill is trying to do with synthesizing fae blood.. It is obvious Lilith is using Bill to what point not sure yet.. Why didn't Jessica sense Jason was in trouble since she can sense him every since she gave him her blood? Why did Warlow give Jason his blood was it good or bad? Lilith is using Bill and being fed by him. I think that is why she chose him because he had tasted fae blood.
I did not like Eric siring another ask he only sired Pam for a thousand years and told her he never wanted to be a maker because of the responsibility etc.. so why make him sire another? Why did Ben drain, but not drink the blood? How could Gpa not sense who Warlow was? SO many questions and thoughts to put into review.
I like that it seems better than last season. Jason knows once you taste a vamp's blood they can sense you so why make the stupid move? Why didn't Jessica come when Jason was injured since he drank her blood before? Why didn't Eric have to "lie" with his new sire overnight? They sired Steve as punishment and should sire Sarah as well. WHat will happen to Andy now that none of his fae daughters made it to adulthood? Remember Maurella stated it was his sacred duty to have at least half make it to adulthood. If Ben is Half Vamp/Fae why does he need sookie? Is Sookie a key for him maybe to another realm/world? How could Claudine who is much younger than Gpa send Warlow to another dimension while gpa is tossed around like a potato against him? If Warlow passed through a portal does that mean another version of him is still there? how was gpa able to know what claudine did and go to the dark dimension and still not recognize Warlow in person?
Eric sired a virgin how unoriginal since Bill did the same for Jessica. His new sire was willing and then gets angry because it was for revenge? Ugh those parts were annoying. Who will teach the new sire? I thought Jessica became all bad and such why isn't it the same for the new sire or is each maker different for how they sire?
what does vamp/fae blood do to other faes in they drink it? Warlow is like having a identity disorders two identities in one battling each other light and dark.
He spared Gpa as a child so the line could continue why?? How is it that Godric became wiser and kinder with age and not Warlow? Was Godric younger than Warlow and Russell? Russell died an exploding mess, but I thought the death would be quicker like Godric who went up quickly in blue flame/dust.. Kindred spirits? So Warlow is related (brotherly?) to gpa or somehow differently? Warlow killed his parents same as gpa parents or both parents one in the same and they are brothers? how was Warlow turned? Warlow was able to break out of the realm because of the contract right? Both lines of fae could continue why? what was the need of the contract then? Can gpa survive the same dimension w/o all his blood? Why send him there?
Did I detect annoyance/ jealousy in Ben as Sookie talks about her vampire exes?? Ben's appearances change throughout the episode. stubble/no stubble etc
Why didn't young faes use their powers?? Seriously Jessica was able to take down all four? Why didn't the faes turn to dust? Maybe Jessica did not drain them all the way?? Feed vamp blood??moreless
True Blood continued its superior structuring this week as things heated up in the whole Warlow department, mainly with a reveal of who he is that was handled well and I honestly didn't quite see coming. But beyond that it was a decent episode despite it still having some problems. Among the tedium is Terry and Arlene were in the episode, and after being a parent for less than a week Andy is now convinced he loves his faerie children more than life itself. But the fact that Bill's whole creepy "let's party thing" with them at the convenience store and they played beyond mere hijinks was a great place for the writers to be coming from. Gpa and Jason go after Warlow after Jason deduces that Ben gave him some vampire blood to heal him and that he must be half-fae-half-vamp and is thus a Daywalker such like Blade. I felt bad for Nora giving us the bit about the mistranslation in the Book of Lilith being "the Progeny led Lilith to the Sun" meaning that Warlow is the only one to kill Lilith and thus an alliance with Warlow would be inevitable probably. But Gpa and Jason cornering Ben (who is Warlow as Sook, Jason, and Gpa all deduce) Gpa gets blasted out by one faerie spell and Jason is glamored into walking away while Ben drinks Gpa's blood. We got a revealing yet overly expositiony scene where we learn that Warlow had spared Gpa back in the day and the fact that he was half-fae and a rival to the Stackhouse bloodline accounted for his obsession with Sookie. He spares Gpa's life again and gives him his blood, so why did he drain Gpa, was it just to weaken him or just for show? Also the Jason dream was entertaining and him actually knowing it was a V side effect too shows that the show hasn't forgotten his past experiences. But I guess Gpa being the King of Faeries I didn't expect him to be so unceremoniously thrown into a dark dimension without much of a fight. Anyway, onto Eric who coerces Tara to tell him where she stashed Willa and he tracks her down and turns her into a vamp as we get to see the whole turning process down and dirty (and shirtless). Alcide and the other weres continue to hunt Sam, Emma, and Jessie while Lafayette is told to get out of there. If Alcide has to keep playing the rank card is he really that efficient of a leader? Anyway, the irony of Jessica giving Bill the whole chat on losing control and then her drinking the newly naughty teenage faeries was a strong moment and one I'm sure will be taken back instantly next week knowing this show. But the scenes with Dr. Takahashi and Bill describing the blood and the ethical boundaries were efficient as Bill made the fact that Takahashi was a prisoner and nothing else. Sookie goes on the offensive in her own way, inviting Ben (who she now knows is Warlow by finding his blood on the floor) for dinner and poisoning his food with silver. And btw, the silver also seemed to have no effect whatsoever on him. Sook did get great points for making out with Ben and then doing the whole supernova faerie thing, telling him to get off of her or to burn putting him effectively at her mercy. I'm interested to see more of the half-fae-vamp thing and the rules Ben has to follow when we see the fallout of this next week. But the part of the episode that surprised me that wasn't held until next week was Willa going to her father the dear Governor Burell and revealing herself to still be a person. Also, Sarah Newlin is with Governor Burell? Seems like something was missed here and we should've seen this before. But her shooting Willa out with the new round without killing her and insisting that she go to Vamp-Camp make her out to be much worse than Burell just when WIlla was about to get through to him on the whole vampire issue. Of course it's going to prove to be more complicated down the road with 3 vamps now in the clutches of the Governor's forces the AV something or other that kidnaps them: Nora, Pam, and Willa which leaves Eric and Tara and Bill and Jessica to deal with Burell and the fallout for the next little while and hopefully the sun doesn't melt them all away at the good Vamp Camp. But this episode gelled well together, although Sam is hopping into bed with Jessie a little too soon after having lost Luna especially they talk about it in the conversation they have leading up to the kissing, it would be more excusable if the scene was about something else and then transitioned into how lonely and grief-stricken both of them are now that all of her friends are dead and how they have to F**k the pain away.moreless
If your child was one of them, would you love her/him any less?
From the Governor to Lilith, they all face the same dilema. It's one thing to accept your child is different; a werewolf to a shapeshifter, 4 faes to one human, but Ben was never whole to the vampire who made him. Cut off from his race due to Lilith's blood, forever apart from her because of his fairy heritage. Perhaps the reason he searches for a mate he could truly call his own. Any human he could turn no more suitable than Jason.
Andy's deputy said so himself, most kidnappings are perpetrated by a relative: in his children's case, Andy's own great great grandfather. In the case of the Governor's daughter, her own maker. In the case of Jason's grandfather, the vampire-fae Sookie was promised to.moreless
