I had no idea you read our blog! I’m so excited to see you’ve finally taken my advice. It was just over a week ago when I asked that you not spoil the ending of your cliffhangers through previews for next weeks episode. Just when I was about to stop the DVR short I decided to give you another chance and went ahead with the dangerous preview watching. To my shock and aw you actually listened to me and there wasn’t even a hint of a spoiler!
[Stop reading here if you don’t want me to spoil anything] And this week you really would have screwed things up if you did spoil something. You don’t disappoint again with an eye-opening cliffhanger as the vampire party ends up in smokes, literally, with some of the most pivotal characters’ lives held in question (Sookie, Jason, Eric, Godric, and a slew of familiar vampire faces). In one of the greatest episodes this season (I think I say that every week) several amazing plot elements unfolded and new plot lines were developed, including:
*The Stackhouse siblings finally reunite!
*Godric surprisingly demonstrates his kindhearted nature (apparently not the big bad sheriff we expected).
*Andy continues to the be craziest sane person in the series.
*Tara and Eggs have more Maryann inspired sex…and share a human heart pie.
*The show pushes the violence envelope again showing Maryann cut up and cook said heart (RIP Daphne).
*Sam is framed for Daphne’s murder!
*Eric shows his softer side as he offers himself for Godric and Sookie’s safety.
*Jessica loses her virginity only to discover her hymen grows back…damn vampire healing abilities (really? who thinks of this stuff).
*THAT FREAKING FINAL BOMB!!!!!!
Oh True Blood, thank you for being the most consistently good show this summer. You were robbed out of Emmy nominations but with a killer sophomore season, I don’t see this happening next year.
Your eternal watching fan,
