I'm loving the new Eric who for some reason is all about a new look, including being upset about getting blood in his hair after ripping apart the redneck. But even better than making Lafayette check for blood in his tin-foiled hair was definitely Eric meeting up with Bill at the mall in a blue jogging suit! This new look along with Bill's comments of liking the look did a great job of getting rid of the vampire-lovin' saleswoman - who knew True Blood could do shopping mall man-love jokes so well or at all??
But while Eric's all about his new... softer?... look, he's still all business. Not only did he not think twice about tearing the redneck apart, but he isn't backing down about his need to use Sookie's abilities. I did find it interesting, though, that while Eric will probably take Sookie, when Lafayette revealed that Jason was the one who vamp-napped Eddie, Eric was not willing to mess with Sookie's brother. I'm not sure Sookie's connections will be able to keep Jason safe forever considering he's off at vampire-haters breeding camp, but while Jason's predicament is intriguing, there's a lot more to wait to develop there. Meanwhile the waiting was over for the highlights of drama for Jessica and Lafayette!
With plenty of vampire feeding and murdering, there's always been a lot of grossness on True Blood, but one of the worst moments so far came this week with Lafayette digging out a piece of the dead redneck's magnetic hip to use as a tool to bust open his chains. I feel sick just picturing that moment of digging around in the muscles, guts and blood, ugh! That was probably the most genius and disgusting escape plan ever.
While that part of the plan was genius, the rest was just a disaster. He made it up into Fangtasia, only to be confronted and accidentally shot by the waitress, leaving him seriously injured and back in the hands of Eric. But wait!
While Laf was bleeding to death in front of three hungry vampires, he had the smarts and bravery to suggest that they turn him into a vampire. "Not only will I be a baddass vampire," he told Erc, "but I'll be your baddass vampire."
I would love to keep Laf around as a vampire because that would be an amazing character change for him, but when Eric considered that option then invited the other vampires to feed on Laf, what did that mean? Does that mean they'll feed, then turn him, or just feed and let him die?
But while we ponder that, the already turned vampire, Jessica, went off the handle! Sookie, feeling guilty for taking Jessica away from her family, was dumb enough to take Jessica for "just to look" at her family's house. This of course led to Jessica not keeping her promise and going up to the house, but the surprise? She wanted to punish her father for beating her now that she had vampire power! So we got the tense and amazing scene of Bill appearing, glamoring Jessica's little sister into inviting him in, then us being left hanging with Bill livid with Sookie and ready to clean up her mess, whatever that means!
Oh the cliffhanger! With all that drama taking up most of the episode, we're not only left wondering what will happen with Jessica's family and Lafayette, but also what on earth the deal is with Mary Ann's powers, yet again!
So what do you think will be revealed next week around all this drama?
