'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.

ok lets be honest,alan ball just HAD to get bills blood in her for no reason,so she got shot for no reason,so she could dream about bill and her “love” for him could be reawakened again by the same thing that caused it…bills blood…notice how bills all “ah am the king of louisiana” in her dream..haha even sookie really sees his as a pompous douche. Whereas eric was one hundred percent real,genuine sheriff of area 5 (hmmm what does that say to everyone who says she only fell for amnesia eric)
as for alcide….come on…the dudes pretty i guess…and he can take his shirt off all AB wants…..till i see something actually going on there i am NOT interested in him as a character..theres been tons of hot bods in this series…its nothing new for the audience…a nice 6pack isnt going to make me root for u as a character,nor will all the pointless ass shots in the world..alcide is just part of the pretty scenery of TB right now.

Once again Predictable, snore bore Bill comes in to save our Snookster. Wishy washy wooden Alcide, does he know how to love anyone. He is with Debbie yet runs after Sook then sneaks back home and crawls into bed with Debbie. I detest his character. This will probably be my last year for this show for the simple reason that i signed on for the quality and talent of the actors not for someone who’s only talent is his muscle that AB, HBO, and the media keep shoving down my throat. I didn’t mind the threesome, brought back some of the comedic moments that I enjoy in this show that has been sadly missing of late. Loved the truely beautiful love scenes with Eric and Sookie, but am ready for my sarcastic, satirical, confident, bold, unafraid, all together lovely Eric back. He is way too good for Sookie, he is way to good for this show. Where oh where was Pam. She and Eric need their own show they are so good together.

This episode pissed me off in more ways than one. Ugh! Thank goodness I got to see a quick naked shot of Alcide… otherwise this weeks show would have really sucked.

lol Lots of Alcide fans today it seems. Too bad he didn’t really do much (…again.) I’d much rather see him than that freakin’ ghost.

Haha, yeah, I’m not gonna lie — sometimes I forget that Alcide is still in the running! … Or is he?

How can you not miss Alcide when he is the only character on the show who’s only talent is showing off his muscle while all the others can actually act.
