There are a few things I can say without hesitation and one of them is, Marnie is crazy y’all. I mean completely off the reservation, padded room, old fashioned Thorazine drip needing crazy. Still holding the Wiccan’s captive inside the magic shop, Marnie threw a dagger at one of the women that was trying to leave and killed her. Personally, I blame Tara. You guys realize this is all Tara’s fault. It’s always Tara’s fault. Hurricane Irene – Tara. Tropical Storm Lee – Tara. My steel cut oatmeal was slightly lumpy this morning – Tara. After Marnie committed homicide Antonia decides that she wants out of this whole situation, but Marnie pulls a fast one and casts a spell to bind them together for good. As stated earlier Marnie – crazy.
Meanwhile, outside of the magic shop: Bill, Eric, Pam and Jessica have reconvened to blow some shit up. Jason of course comes along to inform them that Sookie is inside, to which they respond, “That dumb bitch!!” Ok, they didn’t say that, at least Bill and Eric didn’t. Jason reminds them that they’ve all had lots of sex with her, so of course they decide to not blow the building up. BTW, Pam what in the hell is a gash? And do I add that to my arsenal of swear words? Seriously, Pam can’t believe everyone is willing to forgo offing the witch for Sookie’s safety. She calls Sookie a gash in a sundress.
Over on the other side of town Sam is continuing to audition for the inevitable Death Wish remake, by holding a gun on one of Marcus’ werewolves to learn of his whereabouts. All the while Marcus is trying to convince Druggie Debbie to run away with him, and he stopped along the way to snatch his daughter from her school. Speaking of druggie’s, Andy is walking his way home from being left in the woods by Terry last week. On his comical yet boring way home a fairy visits him. Seriously. For some reason, I’m sure we’ll be told next season, they make love. Hint: I guess the fairies are looking to spawn some more Sookie-like people.
Two words: Vintage Cartier! That’s it! Game over! One of the female vampires’ Marnie has bewitched is wearing vintage Cartier, but great style didn’t save her from becoming a ball of goo as Bill throws her into the force field surrounding the magic store. Marnie has harnessed the sun to make the field. Good show, actually there Marnie! We also find out, she is doing all this because Marnie has no friends in her life before Antonia. Call Dr. Phil, Oprah somebody. Don’t kill a bunch of people because no one liked you in high school. After Bill summons them all outside for another truce meeting Marnie agrees to release Sookie, but Bill and Eric must agree to meet the true death. They both agree to die for Sookie’s freedom. But Pam instead blows the building up, while calling Sookie Bo Peep. Seriously, I heart you Pam!
Inside the magic store Jesus has come with a plan of using the dead girl’s body to unbind Marnie from Antonia. He warns Lafayette it’s about to get ugly in there. He literally drinks dead chicks blood. Jesus does some chanting and his faced turns back into the Santeria-demon thing he turned into last week. Over at Alcide’s, Sam finally squares off with Marcus. De hombre a hombre. After Sam completes fisticuffs with Marcus, but leaves him alive. Marcus then decides to go for the gun to shoot Sam. Alcide being the sexy giant he is accidentally kills Marcus when he tries to stop him. Oops! Oh, well as long as you keep looking like you do, I think no one cares whose you neck mistakenly break. Break on Sexy! Afterwards he throws Druggie out, again! I half felt sorry for Debs this time. I think she really tried to not be a crack head. You know who I blame? Tara.
Back to Jesus and Marnie. After Jesus completes the spell Antonia departs leaving Marnie to just be a powerless harmless nutter. Eric and Bill go inside to of course kill this bitch. The stupid guy, who Tara calls an Uncle Tom (that reference didn’t fit at ALL, btw), tells Eric and Bill they have to go through him to get to Marnie, to which Eric literally a blink of the eye pulls homeboy’s heart from his chest and drinks it like a McDonald’s milkshake. Yum! Eric, not the heart shake. Bill precedes to fill Marnie full of real bullets. Just like that Marnie is no more! Before you weep for Marns, later that night she deicedes to use medium Lafayette’s body to try to make one last run at the brass ring. To be continued…
Overall I’m not really sure about this episode. This was certainly better than last week, but not much better. It’s was still a bit on the lackluster side to me. But, it’s looking like the season finale might prove to give us something to cheer about. I would give it 6/10 if I were rating it. Thoughts, theories, groans, moans?
Episode #48: “And When I Die” (season finale)
It’s Samhain, Wicca’s greatest holy day, and spirits of the dead surface in Bon Temps, giving Sookie valuable allies to combat Marnie’s newest incarnation. Lafayette’s latest medium encounter imperils his relationship with Jesus; Jason (Ryan Kwanten) finds confession good for the soul, but not the body; Alcide makes a heartfelt appeal to the woman he loves; Terry (Todd Lowe) receives an unexpected visitor at Merlotte’s; Sam and Luna (Janina Gavankar) envision a storybook ending, for once; Nan (Jessica Tuck) wears out her welcome with Bill and Eric. Debbie confronts Sookie and Tara (Rutina Wesley) with deadly consequences, and the denizens of Bon Temps brace for a new crisis with a familiar face.
