Sean Guard sinks his teeth into the latest episode of the popular U.S. vampire series True Blood – “Run”…
Sookie is dying! Sookie is dying! No, not really. Obviously they weren’t going to kill off the main character of the series. Sookie survives and the first thing she does…has an erotic dream which begins with Bill and Eric fighting over her and turns into a sexual threesome. Who knew the goody-good had it in her? What I was upset about is the way she just ignored my boy Alcide. He was the one that rescued her from the fray between the vamps and witches in the first place. Putting his own relationship on the line, he brought her to safety. Finally coming to grips with his own frustration and Sookie’s blind constant leaping into the direction of danger, he claims that he is “done” and walks out of her life.
Back at his own household, Debbie is up watching none other than Cheaters on T.V. She pretends to be asleep as he slides into bed next to her. She is obviously upset and hurt that her boyfriend just couldn’t leave the mind-reader alone. She falls off the wagon, begins taking “V” again and devises a plan of her own to set Sookie up by gaining her trust and delivering her to Marnie/Antonia who has chosen to keep all of her followers locked up against their will. She has also casted another spell which has Eric under her control. Seems she is definitely holding all of the cards, well at least the major ones right now.
Lafayette is still under the control of that dead woman, Mavis, in search of her baby and brings a stolen Mikey back to Hoyt’s house. The house was the same one that she lived in before she was killed. Confused and scared out of his mind when “she” points a gun at him, Hoyt runs outside and notifies Jason. Him, Andy, Terry and Arlene all race over to Hoyt’s place to rescue Mikey and get to the bottom of the situation. They call in reinforcements, Jesus, to help. He discovers the real problem, learns of the woman’s troubled past and manages to calm her down. During some kind of magical process which includes them digging up both hers and her babies’ body, she comes to grip with how the two of their lives ended. Now at peace, Mavis leaves Lafayettes‘ body and ascends, assumingly into heaven, with her baby in hand.
A sub-plot stemming from this encounter is Andy’s continuous issues with “V”. He drank a significant amount before reporting to the scene and gets into a little scrape with his cousin, Terry. Jason recognizes the symptons and doesn’t accept Andy’s worn out apologies for always messing up. Sam and Luna go on a camping trip to make her daughter forget about the confrontation with her father. They seem to have a pretty good time and of course wind up sexing it up in a tent. All the while, Tommy shifts into Sam and pays the werewolf pack leader a little visit. After some very disrespectful words are exchanged, Tommy/Sam gets the crap beat out of him.
Luckily Alcide, who has just recently pledged his allegiance to the pack, all for Debbie, manages to pull him out of there. But not before the beating he takes causes him to shift back into his natural form. This discovery causes the pack leader and everyone else who participated in the beating to step back in shock. They obviously thought they were kicking the dog s**t out of Sam.
Before he is forced out of his home at gunpoint, Hoyt places all Jessica’s belongings into a box labeled “For you, Monster”. Pretty harsh, huh? He asks Jason to take it to her. 2+2= Jessica riding Jason pretty well in the back of his truck not too long after he tries to leave. Surprise, surprise. Nothing but drama will come from having sex with your best friend’s ex-girl. Looks like it was fun though.
Sookie isn’t able to free Eric from his Marnie/Antonia prison but she manages to escape with some help from Tara, who seems to still very much be her best friend. Much to Debbie’s dismay, Sookie survives her run-in with the Marnie/Antonia clan and then proceeds to try to warn Bill of her master plan to interfere with a vampire “Tolerance” rally. Many humans will be on hand and it’s the perfect place for her take over control of the vampires and have them slaughter as many humans as possible in front of a number of spectators.
With only three episodes left, things are really gearing up for a major finale on True Blood. With the eventual resentment of vampires by the entire human race looming on the horizon thanks to Marnie/Antonia, things will only get worse before they get any better. Now there also seems to be some tension brewing between the Bellefleur cousins and the impending confrontation between Jason and Hoyt once he finds out Jason is porking his ex. I wonder if Eric will return to his normal mindset of killing and not giving a flying f**k about anything before the end of the season. New episode this Sunday, ‘til then go do bad things.
