'True Blood' Recap: Sookie, Eric & Bill Have A Threesome. That Is All.

Talk about a compromise! What did you think of tonight’s epic ménage à Temps?

After three long seasons of Bill-or-Eric drama, Sookie (Anna Paquin) finally asked a very important question on the Aug. 21 episode of HBO’s True Blood: “Why can’t I have both?” The end result was a steamy scene that gave both Bill (Stephen Moyer) and Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) fans reason to pause. Then rewind, and play again.

With Eric under Marnie’s (Fiona Shaw) mind-control, it was up to Bill to give Sookie the blood she needed to heal her near-fatal gunshot wound. And as you might expect, with both Bill and Eric’s blood coursing through her veins, things got hot. She had a part-porn-part-noir dream, which found her enjoying both of her vampire suitors on her living room couch.

Now here’s my question for both Bill and Eric fans: Was this threesome a fair compromise, or do you still think Sookie needs to make a real choice?

But Sookie’s not the only one who got her cake — and had sex with it, too — this week. Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) and Jason (Ryan Kwanten) finally gave in to their passion and humped like rabid bunnies in the back of Jason’s pick-up truck. And what music did Jessica lose her virginity — again — to? Why, Taylor Swift, of course! Sometimes I think we all forget that Jessica is still a teenager, and always will be.

The whole ‘singing ghost’ storyline was also finally wrapped up this week. A still-possessed Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) took over Hoyt’s (Jim Parrack) house, where he planned to start a new life with baby Mikey. Jesus (Kevin Alejandro) showed up for a little heart-to-heart with the ghost, ultimately expelling her from Lafayette’s body. To be honest, I found the “climax” of this storyline to be a little disappointing, but at least now we know someone will be able to pull Antonia out of Marnie.

And speaking of Marnie, she put a real damper on the vampire’s Tolerance Assembly by sending her goons, and Eric, to go on a killing spree. Sookie and Debbie (Brit Morgan) teamed up to save the day — I still don’t know how I feel about their unlikely friendship — but were too late.

Needless to say, there’s going to be hell to pay next week.
