Who won’t come to her rescue?
True Blood Ep. 52 – We’ll Meet Again (July 1, 2012) – The show is heating up this week–The Authority releases Bill (Moyer) and Eric (Skarsgard) out into the world to discover the whereabouts of Russell Edgington’s (Denis O’Hare); while Nora (Lucy Griffiths) confesses the identity of the other traitor; Alcide (Manganiello) expectantly covers for Sookie (Paquin), and Terry (Todd Lowe) and Patrick (Scott Foley) finally stumble upon their former comrade with a potentially disturbing secret. Andy (Chris Bauer) and Jason’s (Ryan Kwanten) story lines are picking up as well–they seem to have been taken to a strip club run by faeries!
First off, Pam (Bauer) has to save Tara (Weasly) from frying herself like an egg by using her maker commands. I like that Pam is starting to “nurture” Tara–mentoring her fledgling vampire and even offering her a fangbanger, Melanie to feed on. Tara is finally finding that possessing awesome vampire powers may not be such a bad thing after all. This just might change her relationship with Sookie later on in the season.
Pam is relieved that Eric has returned; however, their reunion while bittersweet at first–he suspects that she knows how Russell escaped–even going as far as to suspect her of freeing him. Of course, Pam is deeply hurt by this–we all know that she is deeply committed to her maker–you could feel just how brokenhearted she was when she asked him to release her from his guardianship. Reluctantly, he did so but, not because of because of mistrust–it is because he does not want her involved in the investigation. Pam is Eric’s legacy, and he asks that she watch over Tara. A touching moment in the episode as it allowed for further insight into the complex world of vampire love and bonds.
Severing ties and preserving legacies.
Bill, you always seem to have Sookie on your mind at one time or another. He put in a good word with Tara–he let her know that her impulses will subsides and that she will adjust well to vampire life. Of course, the conversation shifts on Sookie. Tara informs him of what transpired over the last several days and perhaps begrudgingly, mentions that Sookie will always be okay no matter what–she has a swarm of people who will do anything for her–even risking their lives for her. I am wondering if this could be an acknowledgement of sorts. A possible end to a friendship?
Lafayette (Ellis) isn’t doing too well either. The demon is stirring within him–and Sookie is its latest target after when it discovered her exchange of words with Alcide about Debbie’s murder. I have a feeling that this is motivated by Lafayette’s anger somehow, and depending on who is the current focus. Some form of magic was put on Sookie’s car which caused it to crash into a tree. Luckily, she turned “action-hero” and jumped out just in time! I wouldn’t want to be the one who’d piss this demon off!
Alcide informed The Pelts (Steve Rankin and Linda Purl) of their daughter’s death, but with a twist–instead of telling them the true identity of the true killer–he instead told them that Marcus killed Debbie! Ha! What did I tell you (What I Am, You Made Me), we all knew he was going to cover Sookie! The Shreveport Pack will find out about Alcide’s deception, and may try in their own unique (and deadly) way to remedy it. Meanwhile, Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) helps out by buttering up Andy into forgetting about the case altogether, and asks about giving her the file. You gotta give it to Jessica–she is always there just at the right time to lend a hand.
Now we’ve come to Terry and Patrick–Terry has a flashback while en-route to an old war buddy’s hideout in South Dakota. Shockingly the flashback revealed the truth about his tour in Iraq–the death of the villagers wasn’t due to a supernatural force–it was due to Terry and a group of this fellow soldiers drunk and possibly high shooting a civilian! A crossfire between a group of unidentified shooters broke out, and mourning townspeople were killed in the process. To top that–it is discovered when they arrived to their former friend home that he had painted murals of the fires on his walls in the basement. Is this a horrendous case of PTSD or is there something else to it?
Chancellor Alexander (Jacob Hopkins), I will miss you. After being threatened with the “true death,” Nora confessed to Salone (Cervi) and Roman (Meloni) that Alexander was the traitor. Alexander apparently videotaped feeding on a human woman with a coded message to the Sanguinstas’, preaching solidarity to their movement. As a result, the child vampire was brutally staked (and a gruesome display of blood and guts followed mind you)! Damn! I thought for sure that it was Dieter! Let me tell you, Roman ain’t playing games when it comes to mainstreaming his cause. Eric and Bill had better find Russell, and find him fast!
Turns out I guessed right about the empty field being a portal to the fairy world. I totally did not expect a strip club–but this is True Blood and being taken to quite avclassy and colorful place is sweet. We find another family member of the Stackhouses and some surprising information about his parents. Yet another twist to the story and perhaps we will see what makes fairies so special to the vampires.
The countdown to Russell’s reemergence continues and things are fixin’ to come to a head!
