I Found You
So what went down in Episode 2 of HBO’s True Blood Season 7? In a nutshell, this is what happened:
- Sex dream! Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) and Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) finally get their jiggy on – but it’s only because Jason fell asleep in church! Why he’s having sex dreams of Eric 6 months AFTER Eric gave him blood is anyone’s guess though…
- Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) turns out to be a way better detective than Andy Bellefleur (Chris Bauer) – but that’s only because she conveniently tripped over dead body last week and so a road trip to the neighbouring town of Saint Alice is in order. Conveniently, the very first house they walk into when Sookie and her gang get there is the very same house belonging to the dead woman Sookie found back in Bon Temps – what are the odds of that?! Not only does she find the woman’s house, this woman very conveniently left a comprehensive diary on the events leading up to the entire fucking town being wiped out! Once again – what are the odds of that?!
- Also, what is the chance this corpse also has a vampire lover and a love story that unfolds just like Sookie and Bill’s? Wow! Odds again anyone?!
- While they are there, Jason ascertains – using the ever reliable ‘pizza forensics’ method of methodology and the fact they found a fairly odourless pit o’bodies – that the town was sucked dry only two and a half days earlier.
- Lettie Mae (Adina Porter) is falling into old habits and is on the hunt for another hit of V. When Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) tells her to rack the fuck off, she becomes very inventive and burns her hand to a crisp before convincing the gullible daughter of a governor, Willa Burrell (Amelia Rose Blaire), to offer up a hit straight from the source! It works and Lettie Mae is able to see Tara (Rutina Wesley) this time in her vision. And what a fucked up biblical vision it is too. Tara is babbling to Lettie Mae from atop a cross, a snake weaving around her. It seems I can smell another V hit in Episode 3 😉
- Remember how annoying Vince (Brett Rickaby) was in Episode 1? Yeah, he’s worse this week. First he unrallies the troops after Sam Merlotte (Sam Tammell) rallies them in favour of cleaning up Arlene’s (Carrie Preston) bar, Bellefleur’s. Then, when Adilyn (Bailey Noble) and Holly’s (Lauren Bowles) son sneak off to warn Kenya (Tanya Wright) that the angry masses are about to arrive demanding guns and ammo, Vince manages to turn the tides against Adilyn… The guy is a fucktarded redneck politician wannabe at it’s finest.
- So, since Adilyn is now in trouble, that fairy/vampire blood swap scene from last week makes more sense. Jessica Hamby (Deborah Ann Woll) wakes in a snit now knowing her fairy baby is in trouble – but she can’t do a damn thing about it until darkness falls!
- At Fangtasia we get to meet individual Hep-V vampers – and still I don’t like them. Arlene, however, works out she does in fact know one of them – seems she taught Arlene’s and Holly’s kids back before she was a vampire. With a whole heap of begging a plan is hatched and Betty the Hep-V turncoat for a good cause returns to free Arlene and the others – but not before she has a good feed. And it’s a great feed – right up until Betty goes and dies while sucking on Arlene’s leg! Was that a result of an untimely Hep-V death, or did Arlene’s blood have something to do with it?
- The episode is winding up now and we find Sookie sneaking off on Alcide (Joe Manganiello) in order to track down Bill. Seems she has a plan…
- Finally, to round out the episode that started with the elusive Eric Northman, we also end with him. Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) has arrived at Rhone. Not only does she find her maker, but she also finds out that a dose of Hep-V beat her to it.
