Hoyt’s gone. Godric’s gone. Gone, Gone, Gone.
True Blood ‘Gone, Gone, Gone‘ – (Spoilers) The show may be starting to make sense. Sookie (Paquin) is a fairy princess! This is the reason why everyone always runs to her rescue. I thought True Blood was mostly about vampires–now the show has a fairy princess? Unfortunately, because of her, Russell (O’Hare) is back to his senses and has concocted a devious plan of using fairy blood to become a daywalker. Fans of Mr. Edgington, looks like your boy has a plan; and so too, does Eric (Skarsgard).
Vampire attacks on humans have increased fifty percent as the Tru Blood shortage begins to affect society on a widespread scale. Politicians on the side of mortals are accusing Steve (McMillian) of being a co-conspirator to a secret faction within the vampire community that desires to set their race back into bloodshed–nail on the head pretty much. To top it off, Lilith (Jessica Clark) slaughtered Godrick–or the apparition of him. I was hoping he would at least stay around for awhile longer, instead of him just being killed off again. Sigh and Nora’s (Griffiths) nonsense continues.
Elijah (Keram Malicki-Sánchez), the new Area Five sheriff, is no more. Tara (Weasly) took care of that obstacle with the help of Ginger (Tara Buck)–but Pam (Bauer) seems less than pleased. This will no doubt get the bar in trouble with the Authority, who have been creating new laws requiring for vampires a certain number of children. Seems as if they want to breed more vampires to claim the world as their own.
The most emotional (and maybe the best part) of the episode was the heartbreaking clamoring of Hoyt (Parrack) to forget his relationship with Jessica (Woll) and Jason (Kwanten) before he left for a new life in Alaska. Still hoping they reunite somehow! Jessica is also now under the watchful eye of Bill (Moyer), as he aims to teach her about the Vampire Bible and plans of a new age where vampires will be the dominant race. Perhaps this will be elaborated in season six?
Sookie comes to find out one of her relatives centuries ago made a pact with the vampire Warlow to take possession of the family’s first female born heir. Messed up to find this out about a family member. At least this makes her story line slightly more interesting.
Overall, this season hasn’t been what I expected. With a twist and turns that leave me scratching my head and hoping the producers/writers of the show followed a certain format, I hope the few episodes that remain are more interesting and lead to an amazing start for the next season. Other than Lafayette (Ellis) returning to his old ways and in Hoyt’s send off, there wasn’t much else holding my interest tonight. Russell never did seem to be a put on airs kind of guy to me, and his side switching trick seemed out of the blue.
Maybe now the Authority will have some sense snapped back into them and maybe rethink their actions? Of course not.
