True Blood S07E07: "May Be the Last Time"


For what “May Be The Last Time,” True Blood kicked back. I assume the final three episodes of the series are going to be CATACLYSMIC, so this may've been our last chance to sort of just kick back before the fireworks and enjoy a particularly funny episode that seemed to delight in subverting its own tropes.

Like, raise your hand if you thought Violet was going to immediately attack Adylin and Wade. Instead she escorted them to her personal f*ck palace, where we got to see her brilliant taste in decorating, an impressive collection of love-making accessories, and a stunning oil portrait, and the young lovers got to enjoy a full day of sexin' before she attacked them at the end of the episode.


Sookie calling in Dr. Ludwig was just frame after frame of pure joy. It’s during moments like these that you know the True Blood writing staff just wants to spend this last season hanging out with their favorite characters again, and you know what? Me too.


After Sookie called upon Niall, my expectations were shattered when the old man actually showed up. Sure, he wasn’t particularly helpful, but Sookie’s open complaint letters to the universe are typically left unanswered. At least Niall was there for a little grandfatherly counsel.

And it's possible Niall was saying that forgiving Bill is as close to a miracle as Sookie is going to get—in which case, mission accomplished, because Bill was humping Sookie before a roaring fire in no time, all like, "Alcide who?" And you know what, y’all enjoy that! I’m not going to lie, I was on board for one last run through the backyard to Bill’s house. I know that we’re supposed to hate Bill at this point, but these days, all I really see when he and Sookie share a screen is a married couple reliving the first giddy days of filming a hit show and simultaneously falling in love. Studio nanny is watching the kids, Mr. and Mrs. Moyer, so just go on and have at it.


Hoyt is back in Bon Temps with a bangin' new girlfriend, and despite all the heavy emotional angst between him and Jason, Jason still seems aroused by her mere proximity. Is this the start of a mini redemption arc where Jason will NOT eff his ex-pal’s girlfriend, as an acknowledgment of all that once existed between them? Will Jason show a development of character in not wounding his friend so grievously a second time?


Speaking of character development: Sarah Newlin’s return to the FOTS camp and her ensuing visitations by all her sex partners, like Scrooge being tortured by the ghosts of booty past, was both brilliant and surprisingly unnerving, especially for a daylight horror scene. While it’s a shame that her spunky sister had to die so fast, having Mr. Gus the Tru Blood proprietor instantly realize that he could capitalize on Sarah as the Hep-V antidote was clean and efficient work, and the faster the show gets a giant butterfly net around her and sits her down across from Pam and Eric for a heated exchange, the happier I’ll be.


Did you guys notice the bondage pants Eric was wearing, presumably borrowed from the Dallas closet at hand? I wonder if the True Blood wardrobe department organizes all of Eric's costumes around the premise, “What will make Alexander Skaarsguard burst out laughing when he comes into the trailer each day?”


We were also treated to a thoughtful, surprisingly romantic interlude between Arlene and her vampire admirer Keith, and then a thoughtful, surprisingly poignant interlude between Arlene and Sam—but honestly, I’d rather brush a cat’s teeth than sit through a round of Sam discussing his tired, irrelevant, obvious-solution, not-real-problems B-plots. Sorry, Sam! Go find your girlfriend and your child and stop boring me to tears. Your trailer in Bon Temps is great and all, but it’s not that great. 


With three episodes to go before True Blood calls it a series, "May Be the Last Time" ended shortly after a tantalizing glimpse of Lafayette and Lettie Mae digging up someone’s front yard, the one storyline I’d been sort of clamoring to return to since last week. I guess this means they spent literally all night running/driving to get to Tara’s old house? Maybe they stopped for a late-night snack? I don’t know, but for me this is one of the biggest question marks as the show hurtles toward its end: What is ghost Tara up to?


QUESTIONS:

... Seriously: What is ghost Tara up to?

... Is the miracle Sookie forgiving Bill, or is there a miracle cure looming in their future?

... How long will Sarah Newlin last with a trigger-happy Eric on her trail? To the final episode? Past the final episode?

... What exactly was Violet wearing when she started attacking the kids in the sex dungeon?

I think I figured it out. I was wondering what the point of Niall coming back was and now that I've seen it, I think it was just to remind us that she still has that stupid light glow ball to use...On Violet. That's right, I'm staking (hehe, puns) my claim now, Sookie offs Violet with her fairy ball of light thus saving Jessica and Jason from certain death.

No way. She's too busy trying to save Bill. The latest synopsis mentions an old love being rekindled. I think that refers to Jessica and Hoyt. I say Jason is going to get Hoyt to help him save Jessica from Violet. Telling Hoyt that Violet is the vampire who killed his Mother should be enough to get him to go along if he doesn't remember how much he loved Jessica. Naill was there to help Sookie accept the fact that Bill is dying,hence the line 'death is a miracle'.

I'm also still convinced that whatever is in the yard at their old house is only going to be something significant to Lettie Mae, that will give her some kind of peace.

Also, Newmi's going to die.

I really enjoyed this episode. I appreciate the more low key characters getting a chance to just be.

Andy's tears at the Lakehouse had me weepy too. I felt so bad for him, he tries so hard.
What really had me teared up was Arlene. Her talk with Sam about faking happiness until it becomes reals, hits close to home. Then her dance with vampire Kieth was just so kind and comforting.

I'm fine with Sookie and Bill being together. It's a one true love kinda deal and that's okay with me.

This episode was kinda "slow" spending way too much tying up characterisation. Hoyt's bit wasn't really necessary. Should have had spent more time with Lafayette and auntie finding what Tara wanted, Eric and Pam catching Sarah...etc. All in all, can't complain cos the series ending and pun intended, it SUCKS!

I know. I know. Forever Team Eric. I sort of resent when women go back to first loves in stories...like it seems to deny growth. But in this case I guess with the actors married to each other you know, they figure they're endgame. They certainly weren't in the book series!! But then, neither was Eric.

Ditto... but I'm sure there was A LOT of guilt (on both sides) along with the recognition of love so the only way they could have expressed it was to screw??? I am not expecting Bill to survive.

So, seriously, wtf is Violet up to? Is she specifically endangering the kids to draw Jessica to her dungeon, so she can kill her? Is she psychic, and somehow knew instinctively that Jessica had drunk the girl's blood before she ever met her?

I'd forgotten how weird Sookie runs. LOL. But I appreciated the throwback to S1. She's even wearing the same(?) white dress. I'd forgotten all about Dr. Ludwig! Wish we'd seen more of her in the show. She's an awesome character.

For any other show on HBO this would have been a "meh" episode - but for True Blood it was fantastic! So cool to see Grandpa Niall and Steve Newland again. It's too bad True Blood hasn't had consistently good writing for the last couple seasons - I would have loved for the show to have run longer a few years ago - but after a messy season 5 and an even worse season 6 - I've surprised to say I've actually enjoyed the last couple eps. I really hope True Blood goes out on top writing and story wise - and for now, (Tara and Alcide's shitty deaths aside) it looks like it will do just that!

Geez Jason you freakin horn dog! Here suddenly is Hoyt, former lifelong buddy best friend who had to be glamoured out of town because Jason slept with his true love, and all Jason can do is gawk at Hoyt's girlfriend. I have always loved Jason but what a stupid a$$hole.
I really enjoyed the two scenes between Arlene and her savior vamp; very sexy and very tender. I had a feeling about those two.

Why does Japanese cowboy need Eric around? Eric contributes nothing that cowboy can't get from any other vampire. In addition he clearly has anger management issues (clear to anybody who watched this series but becoming obvious to Japanese cowboy now as well). Plus he drags Pam along who doesn't contribute anything other than her attitude either. Eric is handsome? I'm sure handsome vampires are dime a dozen, including ones that would be much more eager to cooperate.

Basically Japanese cowboy could simply say "screw this" once Eric killed Sarah's sister and move on. Since he contributed exactlly zero to hunting Sarah down and forced Japanese cowboy to wait until night to get moving he is just a burden, not an asset.

This also struck me as a remarkably convenient mechanism. But if it means Eric gets cured before the season ends, I'm not complaining.

But how well known is Eric anyway? How many people outside Lousiana even know (of) him? Wouldn't Bill be better choice? And even if he is known is his endorsment worth 1,75 bn dollars? That is assuming he can refrain from killing Sarah when he sees her, something that may be problematic, given his temper.

lol Speaking of the kids.... I wonder if they'll ever think about watching the show when they are grown-ups?! It's literally like Stephen Moyer's version of "How I met your mother"! :D They'll be like "What could possibly go wrong" and WOOSH- suddenly parental vampire-fairy-sex-scene! X'D

There are only three episodes left. I wonder if this is just the silence before the storm or if that's what this season is about: emotional and nostalgic goodbyes. Don't get me wrong, I LOVED Dr Ludwig's and shiny baby face Steve Newlin's appearance, but... Where is this heading to? TBH I was expecting a tornado-storyline (not literally) for this last season...

I don't have anything against Bill right now, he behaved very suitable this season, but I want him to die because of the disease. I think it would fit perfectly into the whole Hep V plot since it's a reference to the HI-virus and it's victims, and their beloved ones who got left behind...

I wholly agree about Sam, still no redemption for his screen-time wasting and I'm sure there won't be any. I wouldn't even notice if Sam disappeared (or I would think after a while "Hey, cool, there was no Sam").
Jason is a show-stealer these days (again). I would watch the heck out of his spin-off.

I don't know why everyone is bitching about LaLa and Lettie Mae's scene being pointless.... Yes, it was a little brief n just kinda thrown in there, and yes, we knew they were going to the old house..However, this scene featured a little girl looking out the window who looked very much like a young Tara... Are they somehow in the past? That'd be crazy, and could change Tara's fate.. Maybe it was just a coincidence the little girl being there but I doubt it..

I don't see how... it's a bit late in the run to explain some Deux Ex Machina involving a time travelling Tara (or Lettie May and Lafayette). Maybe if there were more fairy storylines going on besides teenage forbidden love they could work it in.

If this was earlier in the season then perhaps. But we're down to the final 3 episodes so any explanation to that would seem really forced and rushed.

I agree that to include such a notion as time travel at this point couldn't help but feel rushed, but it just struck me as really random for that girl who looks a lot like young Tara shown in previous fb's to be there.. But you're probably right.

So, how much profit do you Yakuza really plan to make on the New Blood cure if it's likely to cure anyone that drinks it on the first try? They're either going to have to REALLY water it down for lasting effect, or convince us you can re-contract Hep-V.
Reply

It's not just that it's the cure... it's "New Blood"

They're presumably hoping they can go back to the way things were and just sell the stuff as vamp food like the good old days. But now with a dose of Vitamin Newlin in every bottle.

Though it's a tough sell. If Coca Cola gave me and thousands others hepatitis via contaminated bottles of Coke... I don't think they'd win me back as a customer even with a cure. In real life it would take a lot to come back from a fall like this.

True... but my impression is the vamps barely tolerate True Blood and much prefer the real thing. Various vamps have said it tastes like garbage in the show. So it's like the only choice is a nice local Italian restaurant forever... or a McDonalds AND a nice local Italian restaurant.

So in this case they could just use it as a booster.

You would think somewhere along the lines they'd have come up with some varying flavor combinations, or at the very least, generic knockoff brands.

The episode was okay though it dragged on for quite a bit. I guess it is just setting us up for the final 3 episodes. Nice to see Niall again and though I know a lot of people don't care for Bill I don't mind him so much and him and Sookie hooking up at the end was a nice throwback to their first time (her in the white dress, running from her house to Bill's, having sex in front of the fire place). I feel like it is setting us up for him (or possibly even her) to meet their end, especially considering the conversation Sookie had with Niall. Also liked seeing Jessica watch over Bill while he slept, I always liked their relationship, and though Bill was hesitant at first when she was turned I really like to see the father/daughter bond between them.

Loved Violet bringing Wade and Adilyn to her house and taking them to her sex room, the looks on their faces when they saw all of her sex toys (dildos, handcuffs, sex swing) was hilarious. I know it was all a set up to get Jessica to come to her and I can't wait to see what she has planned. Jason better watch his back.

Nice to see Pam and Eric though they didn't do much and I can't wait till they get Sarah Newlin. It was nice to see her back at the Fellowship of the Sun, being visited by all her former lovers. I hope she meets a bloody, violent death at the hands of Eric.

Good to see Hoyt back in town though it is sad that he doesn't remember Jason. I liked that Jason told him that his mother wasn't part of the angry crazy mob but I REALLY hope they are not going to have him hook up or doing anything stupid with Hoyt's girlfriend Brigette - I had hoped he has learned his lesson following everything that went down with Jessica.

Nice scene between Arlene and Sam, as well as Arlene and Keith. Not enough Lafayette - and I am really interested to see what Tara is trying to lead him and Lettie Mae to. Overall an okay episode. Hopefully next week things will be kicked into high gear - with Eric caught up with Sarah Newlin and Jessica in the clutches of Violet.

all I really see when he and Sookie share a screen is a married couple reliving the first giddy days of filming a hit show and simultaneously falling in love

Ditto

Bill was recently a jerk for a while, and prior to that not particularly interesting to me. I liked him well enough in season 1.

But... knowing that they are married adds a nice spin to things. I'm not saying their love is one for the ages or anything... but it adds a decent enough spin on things that make some of the scenes mean more. Both the touching scenes, as well as the "I hate you" scenes. Actually especially the "I hate you scenes" because that's probably just fun for them -- use that anger of him leaving the toilet seat up to fuel your scene :-)

If nothing else: they're getting paid to hang out, have fun, and dry hump :-) For a husband and wife, there are worse ways to spend 12+ hours a day at work.

There's been a terrible pacing issue this entire season. with the exception of episode 4, every other episode has been full of lulls -- from SLOW advancement in plots but mostly from how all the different stories are being stitched together. LIKE WHAT WAS THE FRIGGIN POINT OF SHOWING US LETTIE MAE AND LAFAYETTE FOR 20 SECONDS?? I don't need to see all of the actors in an episode if that's how you're going to fit them in. I rather not see some characters for a week or two if you're just going to cram them in for a meaningless scene.. We already knew from last week, they were going to the old house. :p

Dr Ludwig was awesome, as always. It was great to see them bring her back.

I loved how she was always unflappable. Bill goes ape on the bed and she doesn't flinch. At all. Even if I was an actor on set I would have had SOME reaction to the guy doing that.

And... it all crescendos with her freaking out and leaving at the mention of Niall. Though I was hoping for a bigger reason than "Dwarves fear royalty because we killed a lot of them in the past"

I have to wonder what Bill's flashbacks are leading up to. I HOPE it's not just to show that he used to be a stand-up guy because we don't need that. There has to be something going on; nothing diabolical perse just something more than "Bill was a nice guy in the old days"

Maybe the children have something to do with it... and Niall meant that Bill having kids really WAS a miracle because the wife was practically infertile.

But if Bill was going to knock up Sookie with magic man-seed then I imagine it would have happened by now.

When the music came on whilst Sookie & Bill were getting it on at the end - This May be the last time was a portent that either one or both of them will die by season end. This may be the last time they get to f&€k.

I think it's gonna be a race to get the cure to Bill & it arrives seconds too late leaving a devastated Sookie.

On the whole I thought this episode was a downer not much advancement of plot, the flashbacks failed to provide any new information of consequence. I'm looking forward to the resolution of the Violet/Jesicca ark & actually the Tara one too it has managed to pique my interest.

I loved seeing the Doc again, the writers are absolutely just doing a final check-in with their faves & Im all for it. Shame they killed off Russell that would be the icing on the cake.

Revenge has started

What's more diabolical:
  • Just killing the guy right away before they got to experience bliss?
  • Or wait until they experience bliss and so his suffering hurts the girl more
Plus, it makes life easier. The night was almost over when they got to the house which means a show-down with Jessica would be short-lived. Now she has ALL NIGHT to torture Jessica when she super-speeds to the mansion.

I think Violet is wasted this far into the series. She would have been much better earlier. I have no idea what is going on with her and its amazing. Jason cheated on her? Instead of ripping his head off, she gives him amazing sex. He sneaks out of the house to see the same girl? She kidnaps a fairy and her boyfriend and lets them use her sex cave and then decides to join in...if there's a logic to her actions, it's lost on me. If it was about revenge on Jason, there are easier ways. If it's about killing Jess, again, easier ways. Even humans can take down Jess. I love her, but she's like the Caroline of True Blood. No matter how hard she tries, she's never going to be a scary vamp. So why the convoluted plan? I'm more interested in this story line than any other. Because really, everything else is either old or predictable. Bill and Sookie together? Shocker! Lettie Mae and Lafayette were barely in it, and as for Eric and Pam, while I would pay good money to see them in like an 80's sitcom kind of show, at the moment, everything is revolving around Sarah Newlin, and as much as I liked her before, now she's crazy without the moral conviction, it's not as entertaining. It was more fun watching her being crazy while thinking she was being perfectly normal, rather than this all out, seeing dead (mostly) exes vision trip.

I think the thing with Violet is this... you f*ck with my human, i'll f*ck with yours. while I understand why people may not like this new character, I also don't get all the Jess love. She's been horrible to Jason... and he LETS her use him every freaking time. (and speaking of Jason.. WHAT A BAD DOG. he does not deserve happiness if he screws Hoyt again).

There's also the unsaid vampire law. when a human is claimed, no other vampire is supposed to touch your human. Jess is a baby vamp going up against an (eight?) centuries old vampire who's scary as hell. Did vamp daddy Bill not teach her this as well??? Fail.

Jess is adorable. I don't think it has anything to do with what she does, it's just her. And yeh, it still doesn't make a lot of sense. Sure Jess would be upset if anything happened to Adeline. But if she really wanted to get back at her, going after James would make more sense. Although epic guilt trip for Jess.

This is the end of the series and that is all we get, evidence that Anna Camp is cuter as a brunette? Too slow, too boring of an episode.

One can hope. He was awesome there as well. This show has to bring him back in some capacity before the end. 'Russell Edgington' remains one of this show's most awesome characters. because he was really the only one who 100% of the time completely owned being a vampire. He was so awesome they had to kill him off twice.

That'd be very cool. I'm thinking he'll be one involved with or locking horns with Proctor because Ulrich Thompsen and Dennis O'Hare together could be exceptional. (Although, it would also be fun if he was part of the Chayton Littlestone story because O'Hare and Geno Segars would also be quite awesome.) O'Hare tweeted a picture of himself captioned 'Somewhere in 'Banshee' and I got excited. He appeared all beat up in a dark suit standing by a railroad crossing with a devilish smile on his face. Its going to be good.

So far I see Ghost Tara being nothing more than a ploy to keep Rutina listed as a current character, and with 2 episodes left, it seems a waste.
I have been bogged down in plenty of book series and shows that vomited out too many characters and story lines to close out quickly, and this show falls smack dap in the middle of that. But still the quick round up of early favorites, especially Hoyt, is falling short of fulfilling for me.
Anna Camp is hotter as a brunette than a blond. I don't know which is her real color, but I vote brown. And tight jeans. and I will be watching pitch perfect 2.

I think it's just to give Lettie May some closure. She was a horrid person and mother at the beginning of the series, and while she is still a jerk she HAS improved somewhat.

So it's put-up or shut-up time. Either kill her, or give her a happy ending. Since her arch has shown some improvement I'm guessing happy ending. They'll probably find something that showed that Tara did in fact love her as a child even though Lettie May was a deadbeat. Like a diary, or gift, or whatever.

And said "widget" might also be special to Lafayette too... like rekindling the memory of a family outing years ago.

Random thoughts from the ep:
- what? thats little of Lafayette?
- Sookie calling for her grandpa: "no way.. fae story again?"
- Grandpa really likes pasta.
- Keith is older than Violet in true blood age. Couldnt tell. Hes so modest and sweet all the time..
- I like that dwaft doctor. Hilarious dialogue from her.
- The Japanese are good opportunist.
- Sarah Newlin actually looks quite good with dark hair.
- Sam is leaving. Next week maybe?

Not a lot happen for this ep. Lots of drama, little action.
Hope its better next week.

How can Eric be the first vampire cured from Hep-V when Sarah's sister has already been cured? The fact that she isn't alive yet is not the point.

This episode was pretty boring. I felt like fast-forwarding half of it. Some of the plots are necessary but they should have divided it up better because this episode was too much set-up and not enough action.

Agreed. It's so he's the public face of the cure. It sells better that way than "Meet the second cured vampire... he killed the first-cured in a fit of homicidal rage"

Plus, it will be the first VERIFIED case of a cure since they'll no doubt have to run some tests to see if the cure is permanent and not deadly. The sister was "cured" for minutes and then turned into blueberry pie.

That is assuming the cure is VALID... and doesn't just turn people into Nut Bars like we're seeing with Sarah.

I kinda wondered about that. What are the chances the cure causes lots of personality ticks, and not just improves pigmentation?

Sarah is going nutso, and I missed most of the opening but my impression from the teasers was that her sister was being a little too loving and protective of the person she was ready to kill an hour earlier for being a genocidal *itch.

In which case, maybe the cure also makes you crazy pants.

And healthy CRAZY vampires are probably worse than desperate infected Zompires.

I really want Violet to die badly first because of how she's got Adiyln hostage and the preview that now she's got Jessica. I don't think Sarah is gonna kill herself or at least, I don't think Eric is gonna let her get off THAT easily. Not now. They're really making me nervous about Bill and whether or not he's gonna make it. I was finally happy seeing Sookie and Bill back together. I don't want anything screwing it up. I did like what Jason did for Hoyt, how he didn't tell him that his mom was part of the angry mob.

Man, Sarah is going flat out nuts. I'm starting to think she'll end up killing herself by accident instead of any vamps doing her in.

I want Arlene to be happy and Sam too.

The life of Bill story is turning out to be really nice. It's almost sad that they didn't do this earlier in the series more.

I really hated the Japanese Cowboy (sorry...can't remember his name) but I have to hand it to him...he does keep his word.

In many ways this episode has been one of the least "supernatural" eps in a long time and it was great. One vamp death, a little fairy light show, a V-induced dream and that's really it. But it was great. Maybe they are saving their nickles and dimes for the finale. Whatever the reason, the writing was really good and you can feel their isn't much time left in the series.

I liked the thought of Bill's life as a miracle, the show has focussed on the miracle of supernatural life for so long the characters themselves forgot the miracle that is to be human: to be born, fall in love, bring up a child, even die just like Bill's father was.

Bill's life was a miracle, to honor it the last days of his existance is a miracle too and to realize what a miracle that was seems to be the biggest miracle of all.

When did Arlene grew so wise. Sam, Jason, even cute vampire dancer she got them all figured out while still acknowledge she was faking happiness most of the time.

And when will stupid Jason ever learn?! The only comfort I have is that there're only 3 episodes left, so he doesn't have much time to steal Hoyt's girlfriend again.

Andy needs a hug, and Adalind needs some brains, good think Violet only wants to steal Jessica's human otherwise they would be in big troubles.

Jessica sooo needs to kick Violet's ass. That would be the greatest way for her to end her story with the show. Kill Violet, pick up Jason and get the heck out of Bon Temps for a world tour.

Jessica has always been a small town girl:
  • I can picture her picking up Jason after he's done helping Hoyt's girlfriend to cheat on him yet again,
  • I could picture Jessica killing Violet with the most greatest struck of final season luck (for main characters),
  • but I could never picture her leaving Bon Temps.
Not Jessica.

Unlike others, I had no problem with this episode. The reason nothing much happened is because nothing much could be done. Sarah Newlin may be the walking cure to the hep-v vamp virus, but finding her was like trying to find Waldo. It's not like she's just gonna give herself up knowing what Eric, Pam and the Yakuza want of her. Eric killing her sister didn't help much either (I don't blame him, but still).

Sam's indecisiveness is another good example. Bon Temps is the only home he's ever known, but raising a child there?!! You have to show some kind of thought process on his part. This is a huge decision, and Arlene (love her!!) asked him two very intelligent questions for his situation. Can't rush something like that. That dream she had with the vampire had me laughing a little. I knew it was a dream, but wow, did she enjoy herself in it.

Good to see Hoyt again. I didn't like how Jason kept acting strange around his new girlfriend. Seemed very out of place to me.

I for one, don't mind seeing Bill flashbacks cause his history has never really been explored that much with the exception of his maker. So I can actually appreciate finding out how he met his wife, had his son, etc. Eric and Pam have had their share of flashbacks, so why not Bill? I liked the nostalgia behind Bill and Sookie hooking up again, especially with her wearing that white dress, but the "reunion" didn't have the same effect on me that it had in the beginning of the series. Not that I think it should be Eric and Sookie (Hell no to that idea!!!), but it didn't feel completely right.

Now Violet is DEFINITELY about to make something happen to Aadiland and Dwayne (i think that's his name). Oh Jessica, as brave as she is, is gonna get hurt bad!!

What a fucking bore. Niall's little reunion with Sookie was rather comical, because he was basically saying "I brought you here, to waste time because the writers are stalling until the end." The way Eric killed Amber was incredibly forced and...I just can't. Not going to bother getting into it, because most of it was just a borefest. Pam got one good line in, and that's about the only good thing I can say about this episode. Actually, I enjoy the banter between Eric, Pam, and Gus, but that was what? One 2 minute scene?

Just one more thing. ENOUGH WITH THE FUCKING FLASHBACKS!!!

Sookie ran through the woods in her nightie.

I know we all hate her now, but she can still look pretty.

The weakest ep since the premiere. All that good work from the last 4 or so eps got stalled in tonight's episode, which was basically filler. Why waste time with filler, Writers? You only have 3 hours left now to wrap this up!
Good moments from Andy & Arlene (who they've really glammed up this season, BTW), but did we need more Bill flashbacks? Or Sam's indecision? Just a flash of Lafayette & Lettie Mae? Jason acting dumb as hell...again? What a waste of Niall? *smh*
So glad to see Hoyt though!

Arlene has point: Sam is no longer running from something, to be with them would be running to something and there's no shame in that.

He made a home for himself in Bon Temps, he can make a home for himself with his family now.

I don't remember seeing Lafayette and Lettie Mae in this episode. Did I miss something?

It was rather brief but they were there and freaked some kid out. Maybe the only real sad part in the ep for me is that we didn't have much time to be with them.

They were in it for 30 seconds, digging in the backyard

Which thankfully, is about the appropriate amount of time to spend watching people dig holes. Not like you needed 15 minutes of it like flashbacks to someone's former human life or anything...

15 minutes?
It felt so much longer

Possible exaggeration. I didn't bother timing it, mostly for fear I'd get even more annoyed.

Yeah I fell asleep watching this episode. Pretty sure I didn't miss much.

Only the name of the cure and the new spokeperson for it.

Welcome to the New Blood era!

It had its moments but mostly it was a slow build that dragged on a bit too much. Sookie and Bill doing it was eww...and the writers are getting just plain silly with Jason.
