Sookie’s latest nookie has been a long time coming! Do you approve of the guy she chose to make sexy times with?
It took her four long weeks, but Sookie (Anna Paquin) finally got some action on the July 1 episode of True Blood — and, really, what is a season of this show without a handful of Sookie sex scenes? So which of Sookie’s many supernatural suitors was given access to her “super snatch”?
Alcide (Joe Manganiello)! After a super-intense day — Alcide told Debbie’s parents that Marcus killed her, and Sookie almost died when Lafayette’s (Nelsan Ellis) inner demon cursed her car — Sookie and Alcide washed their cares away with everything in her liquor cabinet. Cue the makeout sesh.
Point of awkwardness: Bill (Stephen Moyer) and Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) were totally watching Sookie and Alcide hooking up from outside her window. It’s actually kind of funny because, if you think back to last season, there was a super-awkward episode where Alcide watched Sookie have sex with Eric! (My how the tables have turned.)
Eric’s lady problems continued with Pam (Kristin Bauer Van Straten), who he officially “released” this week. It was a heartbreaking scene, as Pam fell into his arms and wept, reminding us once again how close they really are. Eric and Pam have never worn their hearts on their sleeves, but this whole season has shown them in a new light, and I’m loving it.
I’m also loving the fairies this season, who we saw a lot more of this week. Jason (Ryan Kwanten) and Andy (Chris Bauer) were taken to a fairy sex club, which we later learned was actually hideout from the vampires who wanted to nom on their tasty golden blood. Jason bumped into his cousin Hadley (Lindsey Haun), who begged him to bring Sookie to her so she’d be safe. This is going in a very cool direction, I can feel it in my bones…
Meanwhile, Sam’s (Sam Trammell) old shifter friends invited him back into the group — it was really weird seeing them in public, and fully clothed — but when he went to meet them that night, Sam discovered they’d both been killed. Any guesses? My first thought was a shifter, possibly even Luna (Janina Gavankar), but it looked like they both suffered bullet wounds. Not exactly her M.O.
And in “does anyone really care about this story line” news, Terry (Todd Lowe) and Patrick (Scott Foley) arrived at their old army buddy’s hideaway, where they discovered proof he’d been behind the fires. They also discovered their buddy, pointing a gun at them. I really hope this gets interesting, quickly. There’s so much else going on that it’s really hard to care about Terry and his nonsense.
Back at Authority H.Q., Nora (Lucy Griffiths) finally cracked and ratted out the traitor, who turned out to be pint-sized chancellor Alexander (Jacob Hopkins)! But even his tiny cuteness couldn’t protect him from Roman (Chris Meloni) who, without hesitation, delivered the true death and left the entire council covered in Alexander’s blood.
Sometimes politics get messy. (If only C-Span was this entertaining…)
OK, let’s talk: Who do you think killed Sam’s shifter friends? Do you think Jesus will return to help Lafayette conquer that demon? And do you hate Sookie as much as everyone else in Bon Temps does? Drop me a comment with your thoughts on this week’s episode!
