'True Blood' Recap: Sookie & Eric Finally Kiss! Was It Everything You Hoped It Would Be?

Took them long enough! Somewhere Bill Compton is weeping big red tears.

The moment we’ve been waiting for all season — well, really for the past three seasons — finally happened on the July 24 episode of True Blood: Sookie (Anna Paquin) finally kissed Eric (Alexander Skarsgard)! It wasn’t a dream, she wasn’t being glamoured, and no one was in any danger of being killed. She did it because she wanted to do it, and I couldn’t be happier.

But that beautiful scene didn’t go down until the very end of the episode, so let’s backtrack a bit.

King Bill (Stephen Moyer) got super tired of putting up with Marnie’s sh*t, so he had her kidnapped and brought to his little vampire prison. He soon learned that Marnie (Fiona Shaw) had no idea how she cast her spells on Pam (Kristin Bauer Van Straten) and Eric, and that she was actually channeling a powerful Spanish witch from the past. This troubled King Bill, so he called the remaining four Louisiana vampire sheriffs together to figure out a game plan.

Also in need of a new game plan is Sam (Sam Trammell) and Tommy (Marshall Allman.) When his visit with his parents turned sour, Tommy went a little bananas and killed them both. Sam helped him dump the bodies in a nearby swamp, but there’s a much bigger issue at hand now: Now that Tommy, a shifter, killed a member of his family, will he become a “skin walker” like Luna (Janina Gavankar)? And even worse, will that shared ability bond them and pull her away from Sam?

Elsewhere, Hoyt (Jim Parrack) and Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) brought Jason (Ryan Kwanten) back to Bon Temps safe and sound — but new problems arose when Jessica’s blood started to mess with Jason’s mind. Cue an awkward dream in which Jason and Jessica were having sex, with Hoyt sitting next to them. I’m not going to lie, it was kind of hot for a second — but then Hoyt and Jessica suddenly switched places. And it got hilarious.

Speaking of hilarious things, Pastor Daniels and Tara’s (Rutina Wesley) whore mother went over to Arlene’s (Carrie Preston) house to expel whatever evil was messing with their baby. But apparently that crazy whore’s tambourine shaking was all in vain, because a book of matches suddenly caught on fire at the end of the episode! A lot of people are hating on this story line — I’ve heard the words “stupid” and “ridiculous” used — but I’m loving it. I have a feeling it’ll end up tying in nicely with the witches. Plus, evil or not, that baby is freakin’ adorable.

Meanwhile, Jesus (Kevin Alejandro) and Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) took a little road trip down to Mexico this week to visit Jesus’ “brujo” uncle. He’s the one who first gave Jesus his powers, and they’re hoping he’ll be able to help them fight off the vampires. Side note: Am I the only who thinks Jesus is getting in a little over his head, picking a fight with Eric? Dude’s totally gonna die this season, I’m calling it now.

OK, now let’s get back to Eric and Sookie! Pam let it slip that Sookie is hiding him, which sent King Bill into a crazy jealous rage. Based on the previews of next week’s episode, we know Bill and Eric are going to have a violent run-in… but I’m just hoping he actually walks in on Sookie and Eric doing the nasty! I’ve always been open about my disdain for Bill — even though Stephen does an incredible job portraying him — and seeing Sookie with Eric would really stick it to him!

What do you guys think? Was Sookie and Eric’s first real kiss everything you hoped it would be? Will Jason try to hook up with Jessica for realz? And when will Tara’s mom finally release her debut album of tambourine classics?
