Salome. Do you trust her?
True Blood, ep. 54 Hopeless – Tonight was a wonderful night for True Blood fans–the show hit a high point last episode and is continuing to accelerate, meaning thankfully we don’t have to wait until later in the season for things to become fun. Russell (O’Hare) is mobile once more and hasn’t forgotten about his fascination with Sookie’s (Paquin) blood, while Patrick (Foley) finally acknowledges the Ifrit’s existence. Sam (Trammell) and Luna (Gavankar) have survived their run in with a group of supernatural hunting humans, and Jason (Kwanten) travels further down the path to solving the mystery behind his parents’ death. On top of all that, it appears the Authority is being tempted by the sounds of war drums.
Sookie’s fairy powers are getting stronger each season–last night it was revealed that she can dispel vampiric hypnotism. She helps Alcide (Manganiello) recall the events of the previous evening–including their passionate walk upstairs. A shocking side of Authority member Kibwe (Peter Mensah) is revealed when he decides to kill Doug and a group of humans who were spared from being fed to Russell. I thought this guy was peaceful! Goes to show the Authority has more than a few dark streaks.
Russell does not care for the Authority or the Sanguinstas, believing both sects to be cultists adopting the doctrine of Lilith for their own goals. He feels no need to justify his blood lust–it is his beloved nature. Nora (Griffiths) alludes to Russell being a part of a divine plan orchestrated by Lilith. If the mother of vampires is walking free on earth–this will take the season into new levels of excitement!
Beautiful moments between Pam (Bauer) and Tara (Weasly) are blossoming. In her own unique way, Pam shows her growing affection towards her “child” after breaking up the quarrel Jessica (Woll) started over Hoyt (Parrack). The young man begins to have identity issues when he goes to speak with his former flame; Jessica explains to Hoyt that his recent fangbanger conversion is only a phase spawned from their split. I loved their relationship, and the optimist in me is holding out for a reunion.
Martha (Dale Dickey) is shaping up to be a wonderful grandmother to Emma (Chloe Noelle). Fortunately the masked attackers weren’t able to shoot the child since she turned into a werewolf cub (super cute moment). Luna leaves her child in her grandmother’s safe keeping while Sam is sent to request help from Andy (Bauer) to investigate the supernatural hate crimes. It seems the human element is developing extremist sections, hinting Russell may not be the only danger to the world at large.
Jason’s raging spirit is bubbling, and this leads me to wonder what is so important about Sookie’s blood? Is it that good? Or is she someone special? The fairy world may become an important factor later on, and from the conversation with the bartender, it appears there is evil even within the seemingly jolly fairy dimension.
A sad moment in last night episode that resulted in Terry’s (Lowe) departure from his family in order to protect them from the Ifrit. Watching Terry be torn apart by guilt was hard to witness. I do hope there is resolve somewhere to calm the fire spirit.
Damn. Roman (Meloni) was staked by Russell. A significant blow was dealt to the Authority proving Russell to be more erratic and dangerous.
We are on the precipice of war each hour and with every episode–and that’s only in the first five episodes!
