- TV Show review :
Bill and Eric barter for their lives with the Authority Chancellors and their leader, Roman. Salome and Roman enlist a new ally in the face of Russell’s return. Sookie goes to Fangtasia to ask for help from Pam, who is still caught up in her memories of Eric and the strange murders at the Comstock Brothel. Andy’s dalliance with Holly comes back to bite him in the butt; later, he’s visited by Gordon and Barbara Pelt, who are searching for Debbie. Jason bumps into an old high school teacher, but their reunion brings up conflicting feelings and Tara, is a wild child.
True Blood Season 5 ep. 51 Whatever I am, You Made Me (June 24, 2012) - Here we are again and finding ourselves wondering what will happen next on this wild roller coaster! Thankfully Tara (Rutina Weasly) is shedding the “silent” spell she had going on for the first two episodes–and it appears she is more than pissed at those she considered to be her friends. There are layers of shady things going on within the Authority, and Salome (Valentina Cervi) seems to have plans for Bill (Stephen Moyer) and Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) that are more than just information based; and on top of that, Debbie’s parents (Steve Rankin and Linda Purl) have come to search for their daughter! Story lines are about to cross as viewers brace for the oldest known vampire’s return to Bon Temps, Louisiana to shed more innocent (and not-so innocent) blood.
My suspicions about Steve (Michael McMillian) were right–he is a servant of the Authority! The reverend’s latest purpose is to convince the American public (or the religious right) that it is the ultimate goal of the vampire race is to unite with humans. According to Roman (Christopher Meloni), Steve must be the opposition to the inevitable antihuman rhetoric Russell (Denis O’Hare) may spew on the airwaves as he had done before–ending with a very unpleasant conclusion to a nightly news anchor. The reverend Steve Newlin’s role is becoming of greater importance than in season 2.
Nora (Lucy Griffiths) has confessed to being a Sanguinsta, and it is hinted she may have a thing for Eric and Bill, and they were also “visited” by Salome to assess whether or not sympathize with Nora’s views. Why does it seem that these two always wind up in so much trouble? Roman checks in to see how her unique interrogation process is going, and it seems she is in favor of them being of use to the Authority, claiming they possess other motives for their actions. In Bill’s case, he is trying to find where he fits into the world, and Eric is simply a narcissist who does as he pleases. Salome then warns Roman that the Sanguinsta are preparing an uprising across the globe against him–but he does not seem concerned at the moment.
Get out of my bar before I suck you dry!
The chess pieces at the top continue to move–at the bottom we are forced to witness the deterioration of Tara’s humanity. She’s resorted to feeding on stranded people looking for help and is torn to her core about being reborn as “a monster.” Tara turned to Sam (Trammell) for help. What made him think that it was a brilliant idea to lock Tara in the freezer would save society from her wrath? Real cute Sam. Tara was last seen trying to incinerate herself in a tanning bed, and even though her character isn’t exactly favorable to some, you must admit that it is terrible to see her this way.
Poor Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis). In efforts of trying to reach out to he former lover Jesus (Kevin Alejandro)–but it isn’t as pleasant as I had hoped. Instead, he sees the demon his lover transform into to save the coven from Marnie (Fiona Shaw)–and it is beginning to motivate him to commit fatal actions towards others. What does that demon want with him?
Just like the others, he’ll come around. They always do.
Finally, our half-fairy heroine Sookie (Anna Paquin) has decided to confess to slaying Alcide’s (Joe Manganiello) former lover! He hasn’t given her a definite answer on how he will handle the news or if he will turn her in to Andy (Chris Bauer). I’m not worried–just as he done in the past he will come to her rescue just like Bill, Eric, and any other man who associates themselves with Sookie.
Another week before we see what are the results of this episode. The pace still has to pick up a bit more, and whatever is going on–it is sure to have me on the edge of my seat the entire way through.
There were great plot developments surrounding Jason (Ryan Kwanten) and Pam (Kristin Bauer). You got to see more of a background between Jason’s high school days, and when Pam first became involved with Eric–rather touching. However, these flashbacks wasn’t all pleasurable–Bill and Lorena (Mariana Klaveno) feeding on a prostitute. I did not like being reminded of her.
