I saw what you did there.
True Blood, Ep. 8 – Somebody That I Used To Know - Spoilers! The Authority has gone from egalitarian organization to the human race’s greatest enemy in just a few episodes. Bill (Moyer), of no surprise to me, is cooperating in full with their plans to shift the vampire mind back into the days of old when they were at the top of the food chain. Sookie (Paquin) and Jason (Kwanten), with the assistance of the club fairies, were able to locate the killer of their parents. At last, Lafayette (Ellis) appears to be returning to his joyful self, and it was a pleasure to behold. We will need his regaining happiness as the world descends into madness.
Eric just might be the only hope for talking sense into Nora (Griffiths), but efforts at the moment, aren’t proving to be fruitful. Isn’t amazing to see Eric being one of the few hopes of humanity? I’m hoping for Godric (Hyde) to come back in a larger way, hopefully for Nora to see him personally. I had higher hopes for the Authority–the fanatical cult’s direction is a little old, and being at war with the Sanguinistas would have been more satisfying.
Thank you, thank you Hoyt (Parrack)–for not completely losing your damn mind. I was beginning to fear that redneck hate group had brainwashed you completely! Even though, he still has harsh feelings towards Jessica (Wolt), at least he didn’t kill her.
I like how Andy (Bauer) is becoming a sort of hero for the supernatural community, or at most for the shifters. Perhaps he’ll turn out to be an essential ally? Pam (Bauer) and Tara (Weasly) are really bonding! Pam was generous enough to present Tara with a present–her high school nemesis glamoured to be her slave. Aside from the daily issues with her bar tending work, she’s living her new life well, and I am delighted to see it.
A sense of normalcy.
Now we arrive at easily the best part of the episode–Lafayette’s encounter with Jesus’ (Alejandro) spirit! My guess, the burden he was carrying has been lifted, and this is a sign that things are returning to normal; (Preston) and Holly (Lauren Bowles) hatched a scheme that would turn out to be very real. They went to Lafayette to hold a mock seance for Terry (Lowe) to convince him the Ifrit curse had been recalled. Unfortunately, Zafira (the Iraqi woman) uses him to deliver an ultimatum to the two former soldiers–one must die in order for the curse to be lifted. There has to be away around this!
Claude (Neil Hopkins) informs Sookie about the other powers she could utilize to find the vampire, such as tapping into memories energy holds. She uses this method to discover Claudine (Lara Pulver) seemed to have known the killer by name. But something goes awry when Claude finds out Sookie has made a psychic connection with the vampire, and now it is using this energy to project its image to her, warning that it is searching for her.
Aside from these interesting developments, the show has given us a special treat featuring Alcide (Manganiello)–I seen what you did there and damn. I’m waiting for something to set this season off! Maybe it’ll happen in the last four episodes?
