True Blood S4E10: — The Episode Rainbow Bright Hijacked – Let’s Discuss

This contains big time spoilers. If you haven’t watched the episode, I am advising you turn back now. Save yourself.**
Did you ever think you would see a 6’ 5” Viking tossing Elvis around the room like a bedazzled Raggedy Andy doll? Well honey that’s exactly what Eric was doing to Bill at the beginning of last night’s episode. Marnie/Antonia continuing to use her spell on Eric and a few other nameless vampires went all nutters at Bill’s “civil rights” meeting; not only killing vamps but more than a few humans met their demise as well. In the last seconds of Vamp-Brawl ’11 just as Eric had Bill on the ropes and was about to send him to his true death, it happened. Sookie went all magical and pulled her light bright action on Eric. And just like that the spell was broken. Anyone else hear air seeping from a balloon? Because that ending of the Amnesiac Eric storyline ended with a soggy ass wet balloon. What. The. Fuck! BOOOO!
True Blood S4E10 Burning Down the House
Post coital Jason and Jessica felt all bad about the coitus. Basically, Hoyt is a big baby and no one wants him to cry. So no one will tell him just let in the dark, and they will all go on being unhappy – for Hoyt. To be continued because these two are hot for each other and usually you can’t contain that type of heat. Or so I’ve been told. Hoyt the next morning came over to Jason to bemoan his failed relationship and Jason basically goes to Sookie’s to stay because he like me doesn’t want to hear that shit.

There was some uninteresting but somewhat entertaining stuff with Andy and Terry fighting about Ands V-addiction. Not going any further with that because I don’t care.

I guess the most interesting came in the death of bow your heads… Little Puppy! That’s right folks Tommy died from the wolf beating he received last week. Instead of Alcide taking him the vet, Tommy asked to be taken to Marlotte’s. This was all flavors of sad I suppose, kid never had a real home, except for the bar. He even told Sam meeting him was the best part of his life. That sucks majorly for Puppy because all Sam did was yell at you a lot, throw you out a lot and shot you. But, Sam managed to muster some emotion as Puppy went on to join Lassie in doggy heaven. I know I’m being all silly about this, but it was SO melodramatic. Another huge problem I’m having with the show right now. Tommy’s dead, Sam’s wants revenge, Alicide is helping. The end.

Then there’s Antonia/Marnie. Remember how everyone felt all sorry for Marnie, because we all thought she was just a broomstick skirt wearing chick worshipping Mother Earth. Nope that bitch is crazy. Antonia “disengaged” herself from Marns and said she wanted out this vamp war because she never intended on humans getting harmed in it. But, Marnie wouldn’t let her and told Antonia how justice needed to be served or something, I again wasn’t listening that intently to the little soliloquies they both were saying because they were boring.

Eric as Eric tells Sookies he still loves her and remembers their love and still wants “them.” Sookie instantly turned back into Priscilla and said she loved Elvis as well and she couldn’t/wouldn’t choose between them. Elvis shimmed, The Viking pouted, and Pam rolled her eyes. Hell, we all rolled her eyes. Lame.

Anyway, Jesus and a rag tag Scooby gang composed of Lafayette, Sookie and Jason decides to free Tara and the rest of the captured Wiccans from Moonbeans or whatever before Bill and his crew blow it up, literally burning the witch. Jesus turned into some sort of Santeria voodoo God and penetrated Marnie’s orange force field. He thinks he’s helping Marnie only to find out she’s actually running the show. Marnie realizes Jesus has the Scooby gang with him and in some stolen from Star Trek moment a flash of blue light makes them all disappear. Everyone but Jason is gone. I guess we’ll find out where they disappeared to next week. Hopefully they went to a land with better writing.

Overall just like last week, I hated just about everything about this episode. We only have two left so I’m not sure what’s going to happen. I haven’t been drinking my cocktails while watching the last two episodes, is that the issue? Do I need to drink some spirits to make me less bored? All signs are pointing to yes. Overall, this was a terribly lame episode. I would give it a 4.5/10 if I were rating it. Thoughts, theories, groans, moans?

Episode #47: “Soul of Fire”
As the Wiccan-vampire standoff reaches acritical juncture, Sookie (Anna Paquin) summons her faerie powers to preventMarnie (Fiona Shaw) from bewitching Bill (Stephen Moyer), Eric (AlexanderSkarsgård) and Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) into a suicide march, whileJesus (Kevin Alejandro) casts a secret spell designed to un-bind Marnie/Antoniaand break the witch’s deadly defenses. Sam (Sam Trammell) settles ascore with Marcus (Dan Buran); Alcide (Joe Manganiello) confronts Debbie (BritMorgan) about her allegiances; Andy (Chris Bauer) finds unexpected passion inthe forest; Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) is consumed by the past.

    I actually thought the ep was ok. Was it a filler ep? Yes. And yes it was a big ol’ honking cheese steak. Full up of hokey but I didn’t really mind it. While I admit Jessica and Jason whining over Hoyt after hot sex wasn’t what great, still Jason has few friends and while Hoyt is indeed a crybaby he is the only friend Jason has. And perhaps Jason is Hoyt’s only friend. Whatever anyway if it happened between two humans it would’ve been pretty much the same. Guilty. And it will happen again. Now as for Bill. And Sookie. And Eric. Sookie is dumb. We all know this. But she did have to save Bill (for my reasons so they wouldn’t kill Eric later for murdering the King) now as to why she thinks she loves him when she has a supercharged packet of hotness just waiting on her to yes and now I do not know. Again, she is dumb. And that I did find horribly hokey. But I loved Pam cutting her eyes at Sookie and I love Eric bringing back the snark. That I have missed. Tommy was sad. I won’t miss him but maybe Sam will actually do some acting and have a real storyline now. Marnie is crazy and I actually am glad we know it’s all Marnie. She was a sad, lonely kid who grew up to hate everyone who had a friend in the world. Now what I did find interesting is finding out Jesus has a demon at his command or as Lala says “it’s a Latin thang”. This should make things interesting next season because I expect there will be conflict between these two lovers over good and evil. I don’t mind Marnie beaming folks back into her shop. Its a show about the supernatural so I don’t care if they stretch the light a bit. I am tired of Sookie trying to save Tara. Really? Tara is annoying and she got all those folks into this mess. As far as I’m concerned they should get together and burn her at a stake. Harsh yes. But I. Am. So. Tired. Of . Her. BITCHING. Anyhoo, while I wouldn’t watch it again, I thought it was ok.

  • Tara has annoyed me from day one. I’m not sure why they keep bringing her character back at this point. I guess for Lafayette and Sookie. I think I’m annoyed because we should be getting filler episodes at this point in the season. They are ending HUGE storylines and they are doing it without much panache. Not a good sign, imo.

    uhm yeah a bit boring, but I rather liked the crazy Marnie talking her Necromancer into staying… that power it feels soooo good you know.
    I love Pam and Eric and their connection. Love Eric in general right?

    I rather like the Boss vampire lady who always wants to use the Authority at her whim I am curious where they will go with all that.
    Everything is so different from the books at this point it is a whole other multiverse.
    Tara gets married and has a dress shop in the books. She looks lovely in this version, I love her kick ass way.

    Jason and Jessica…well ah Young love right?
    I will miss the show when it sleeps… what will we watch then? I am watching the Boardwalk Empire before it all.. now if only that had zombies?
