'True Blood' Recap: Eric & Sookie Discover The Joy Of Mixing Sex & Drugs. How Sweet.

The beautiful couple learns that ‘all is possible’ when they find yet another venue for the old bump & grind.

I’ve been patiently waiting for True Blood‘s Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) and Sookie (Anna Paquin) to get nasty for three seasons, but after the past three weeks, I think I’m ready to see them put their clothes back on. After exchanging blood, the couple spent most of the Aug. 14 episode having drug-induced sex in a Narnia-style fantasy. “Can we make love in it?” Eric asked upon seeing a bed. Try and guess Sookie’s answer.

After a few scenes of Sookie and Eric discovering, and professing, that “all is possible,” they snapped out of their trance — and s**t got real. They joined Bill (Stephen Moyer) for his confrontation with Marnie (Fiona Shaw), and an all-out battle between the vampires and the witches erupted in the middle of the graveyard.

In the middle of all the craziness, Bill kept Pam (Kristin Bauer Van Straten) from literally ripping Tara’s (Rutina Wesley) face off — bummer! — but only before taking some hard silver to the face and going down. Eric was taken down too, by Marnie herself, leaving poor Sookie defenseless. Naturally, she got shot and bled out in the middle of the graveyard. Good thing Alcide (Joe Manganiello) had been creepily stalking Sookie from a distance and was able to take her to safety. Or to bed. You can never tell where it’s heading with these guys.

Oh, Jessica (Deborah Ann woll) is safe too, by the way. Jason (Ryan Kwanten) made it to Bill’s house in time and kept her out of the sun, for which she thanked him with a bloody-faced kiss. So as you can imagine, the Jason-Jessica-Hoyt love triangle got a whole lot pointier this week.

After dreaming about literally killing Hoyt (Jim Parrack) to put him out of his misery, Jessica finally got the courage to dump him for real — and his reaction was a lot more intense than she predicted. A whole lot of “you’re a bitch” and “you’re dead” and “you’re a virgin for eternity, and that sucks” was thrown around, and Jessica ended up the one crying outside.

But did her new blood-buddy Jason welcome her with open arms? Not exactly. He knows he has feelings for her, but since he’s Hoyt’s best friend and he’s the noblest man alive, he uninvited Jessica from his house — and she ended up on the doorstep. Again.

Sam (Sam Trammell) dealt with a little relationship trouble of his own this week when he finally came face-to-face with Luna’s (Janina Gavankar) ex-husband, who — wait for it — also happens to be the Shreveport packmaster who’s been trying to get Alcide to join up! So we know that he’s crazy, and that can’t be good for anybody.

Meanwhile, Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) had another run-in with his singing ghost friend this week and we learned a lot more about her. It turns out she’s pretty possessive. Like, literally possessive, and now her spirit is living inside Bon Temps’ favorite flamboyant fry cook. Worse still, her vengeful spirit is determined to get back the baby she lost when her secret white lover killed it, then killed her.

So Lafayette did what any man possessed by a crazy ghost would do: He headed for the Bellefleuer mansion and kidnapped baby Mikey — and a gun. (Spoiler alert: Nelsan Ellis gives an incredible performance in next week’s episode.)
