On last night’s “True Blood,” Russell finally found Sookie … and the portal to Faery.
Lilith appeared to Bill and told him he was the chosen one, urging him to drink her blood. However, he wasn’t the only “chosen one.”
When Kibwe told Bill that Lilith had chosen him, Bill ripped his fellow chancellor’s head off. And then Lilith ran the same game on Salome. Why is she manipulating them?
While Bill fell deeper under Lilith’s spell, Nora finally broke it. She begged Eric for forgiveness while they were getting it on. Finally Eric had an ally.
General Cavanaugh, who’d been working on mainstreaming with Roman for decades, paid a visit to the Authority because Roman wasn’t answering his calls. He told the chancellors that they better stop the Sanguinista movement, or he’d show the world video evidence that Russell was still alive. He warned them that the humans were prepared for war with vampires.
Then Eric snapped his neck. Hey, he had a plan!
Eric and Nora volunteered to erase the video of Russell from every government memory. Bill sent guards with them, but Eric swiftly dispatched their escorts and he and Nora flew away.
Stuck in the Authority, Jessica asked to borrow Bill’s phone to warn Jason about Russell. But when Bill said Jason was just food to her now, she impulsively said she wanted to turn Jason into a vampire.
Evil Bill called her bluff and sent her to Bon Temps with two guards who forced her to turn Jason. But she only took a little blood, and he killed her vampire guards. She explained that Sookie was in danger and he bolted.
Having betrayed her powerful maker, Jessica went to Fangtasia and asked Pam to hide her in exchange for information about Eric’s whereabouts. Pam reluctantly agreed, but declined to join in on Tara and Jessica’s girl talk. Tara explained, “She’s a lot of bark. And a lot of bite.”
Later, Rosalyn waltzed into Fangtasia looking for her progeny, Elijah. When Rosalyn accused Tara, Pam took the blame. She was arrested and hauled off to the Authority.
Characters are finally connecting! Or at least crossing paths.
Though she just missed Eric, Pam saw Sam at the Authority. Sam and Luna finally figured out where Emma was being kept, and scurried in as mice. They shifted, and for once weren’t the only naked people around.
Just as they found Emma, guards entered and ordered them back into the cells with the other nude humans. One guard said Chancellor Compton needed his breakfast, and Sam volunteered.
As he was dragged away, he passed Pam and asked her to help Luna. “Who the [expletive] is Luna?” Pam asked.
Maurella walked into Merlotte’s and informed Andy that they had conceived a child, though she looked 8 months pregnant already. When he wasn’t pleased, she accused him of disrespecting the light bond, which is a declaration of war. Yikes.
Sadly, Lafayette had only one line in the entire episode. But it was a good one. “I’m a b****, not a snitch.”
Meanwhile, Alcide worked on his daddy issues. His deadbeat pops helped him kill some baby vampires. Father-son bonding!
In Faery, Sookie asked “The Elder” about Warlow.
The Elder said that a dark time was coming, and the fairies would need to control their light to survive. And when Jason ran into the club and said Russell was looking for Sookie, the Elder seemed terrified. She and Sookie rallied the fairies to fight Russell in order to protect themselves.
So Russell has to be Warlow, right?
Well, Russell arrived. Jason led him to the Faery portal (as he was supposed to), and The Elder walked into the field to challenge him. It didn’t go so well. He sucked her dry. Filled with fairy blood, he could see inside Faery.
What do you think is going to happen on next week’s season finale?
