  • So much happening

    9.5
    When you think a arc has been concluded and it gives you a cliffhanger instead, you know you're in for a ride! This episode was filled with amazing parts from start to finish, it excelled from last episode (which was a hard task in itself)! Seeing Maryanne doing what she does is interesting and although I've already seen the conclusion, I'm equally intrigued each time!

    Great touch bringing in Greek mythology and hinting at it before hand with Bill's reading material during his break-up with his maker. This show during season 2 stayed top-notch quality from season 1 even though I'm well aware it will falter a little later on only to get back on its feet.

    I haven't seen past season 2 before so I can't wait to catch up and see what goes on. It's not my kind of show (feel-wise) but you can't deny suspense!moreless
  • Those silly little fangs are annoying all by themselves. It just makes you think that the hands, feet, and everything else is equally small. And I understand that people used to be shorter, but Godric is like five foot four.moreless

    If a five foot four guy threatened me, even if he was an archangel id die laughing and not be frightened. Come on. This was not great. The revrend isn't that offensive, the vampires aren't bad ass. Im not feeling Godrics messiah complex either. Looking at the flashback of him and Eric they are both bad enough that if they die, they are a bit beyond redemption. Where they are going its warm. Very warm. And although a lot happened there was no plot. Next. I love this show, but thats two episodes that were under par. This is really no better then watching 90210. More annoying in fact. I don' expect a lot from that show.moreless
  • A-W-E-S-O-M-E.

    Sookie's captivity takes an unexpected turn when Eric arrives to do his master's bidding on the eve of the Fellowship's lockdown. In Bon Temps, Sam finds himself in hot water after making a gruesome discovery at Merlotte's, and Andy proves no help in coming to his defense. Sent home by Bill, Jessica and Hoyt learn that when it comes to sex, every time is the first time. Tara and Eggs devour a mysterious meal prepared by Maryann, with unexpected results. After Jason pays off his debt to the vampires, Godric looks to enlighten his more single-minded followers. After an awesome last episode the start of this one is awesome, Godric hot, Eric super hot both of the together, heaven. I love every scene amaing, especially thr scenes with Eric in! I love the scene with Jason and Sarah. I love the scene with Eric and Sookie where he doesn't understand what Sookie is saying. Oh and the scene where Eric is pretending to be a human, the scene where Sookie and Eric are trying to get out awesome. I love the scene with Barry, Eric and Lorena. I love the scene where Bill walks in on Hoyt and Jessica. I love the scene with Eggs and Tara, interesting story. I love the way Jason comes to help his sister and Eric! I love the storyline with Sam. I wish Maryann would just get killed off already I HATE her, through its a good storyline. I love it when Bill comes to get Sookie oh and the fact that Jason comes aswell. I love the whole storyline in the church, I love Godric, he is awesome. I love the way Andy is helping Sam he is so good. I love the scene with Jason and Eric, amazing. I love the scene with Eric, Bill and Sookie, I loved it. I also love the scene with Bill and Jason, I love the way they hug. Oh and the scene with Godric and Eric damnnnn. I love the scene with Lorena and Sookie, amazing scene. Awesome ending.moreless

    4.0
    Too much gore for me into this episode, why eating heart cooking by satan is going with vampire ?

    This is too much desgusting, heh i love vampire , i love this show , but i think that sequence with the heart cooked and cut and .... was really not intresting and no needed for the show, True blood is better than that.

    I wish that show will not turn too horror, and keep more vampire style cause vampire doesn't mean horror for me. I loved Godric and all things happend around him the force he have and everything, nice caractere !moreless

    • Goof: Lorena cries blood in this episode. When Jessica and Isabel cry there isn't any blood streaming down their cheeks.

      In this episode, we find out that older vampires may require very little blood to survive.
