It’s the penultimate episode of ‘True Blood’ and the Aug. 17 episode featured shocking revelations, reconciliations and Bill just being stupid.
After tonight’s episode of True Blood, there’s only one show left EVER! On the Aug. 17 episode, Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) and Hoyt (Jim Parrack) had a heart to heart, Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) found herself big trouble, Ginger’s (Tara Buck) only wish was finally granted and a main character left the show for good. Let’s head to Bon Temps!
‘True Blood’ Recap: A Nasty Thing Called Fate
“What the f**k do you mean you don’t want it?” Jessica (and all of us) asked Bill (Stephen Moyer) after he refused the Hep V cure. Sookie (Anna Paquin) was totally on board with Jessica. Bill didn’t know how to explain his reasoning and this further infuriated Sookie.
“Whatever this is, whatever you’re doing, you don’t get to hide behind the word “fate,” Sookie told Bill.
Bill was dead serious about his chioce. “I’m choosing the true death,” he confessed. Are you serious?!
Jessica read every True Blood fans’ mind and slapped Bill. Sookie followed suit and slapped him multiple times. All this time, Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) was baffled by the events in front of him. However, he stopped Sookie from slapping Bill for a third time.
Then, Jessica broke mine (and Bill’s) heart. “I want you to release me,” Jessica asked. And Bill did it. He actually did it. Not going to lie, there were a few tears in my eyes as Bill told her he was so proud of the vampire she had become.
Sookie and Jessica headed to Sam’s (Sam Trammel) trailer to find him gone. He left Sookie a letter saying he was heading out of Bon Temps with Nicole. He wasn’t going to miss out on his baby growing up. He was willing to leave his life behind for that. He told Sookie that he loved her and closed the letter. (More tears.)
Bill’s two most important ladies headed to Bellefleur’s to get rid of all the doom and gloom. Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) and James (Nathan Parsons) were there. Awkward alert! Apparently, Sam left Andy a letter, too. But it was just his resignation letter.
James apologized to Jessica about how everything with Lafayette went down. She admitted she didn’t know very much about James, like Lafayette had said. She also apologized for not getting to know James better. Jessica asked if he was happy with James and he said YES!
‘True Blood’ Recap: Love & Consequence
Bridget was still super pissed that Hoyt didn’t want to have kids. This was apparently NOT a part of her plan. Hoyt didn’t entirely say no, he just didn’t know if that was “where he was at.”
Then, Bridget got jealous. She asked about Jessica. The very-glamoured Hoyt had no idea who she was. Bridget asked where he was while she was packing up the house. Initially, he lied, but then opened up about his little trip to Bill’s.
Hoyt basically told Bridget not to read too much into the situation, but she was exactly right. Hoyt just didn’t know that yet. They had totally made up, but then Jessica knocked on the door. (Bad timing much, Jess?)
Jessica dropped a bomb on both Hoyt and Bridget by telling them she knew Hoyt, but he didn’t know her. She came to tell Hoyt about their relationship. She confessed that they had lived together and they were so happy. Bridget was totally confused and upset. She wanted to Jessica to leave, but Hoyt couldn’t help but listen.
That’s when Bridget gave him an ultimatum. He either stayed with her or left with Jessica.
He chose Jessica.
Jessica told Hoyt about Bill refusing the cure. She was angry, like we all would be, about Bill turning down the chance to stay alive. Jessica admitted that the only person she wanted to talk to was him. “You were first man that I ever really loved,” she said. (AW!)
After Jessica had calmed down, he wanted her to tell him their story. This might produce some major tears.
Over at Bellefleur’s Sookie told Arlene (Carrie Preston) about Bill’s condition. Sookie asked Arlene how she moved on after Terry’s death. Arlene’s advice was simple: Make up your mind that you want to.
Eric went to see Bill and confess that he understood Bill’s feelings about death, but he still came for Sookie. “Everythign I’m doing I’m doing for her,” Bill said. He wanted her to learn to love someone else.
Bill also discussed the fact that part of the reason they were so attracted to her was because she was a faerie. Um, no. Sookie, in return, was attracted to their darkness. More no.
“Like a moth to a flame, she always returns to me,” Bill said. Cocky much? (Whatever. I’ll always be a Sookie/Eric fan no matter what.)
Bill did have a final request for Eric. He wanted Eric to reach out to Sookie so he could talk to her. Eric wasn’t a fan of being a liaison between Sookie and Bill, but he agreed.
‘True Blood’ Recap: Stars Align For Fan-Favorite Couple
Jason bolted to Hoyt’s to find him and Jessica together. In a very season four way, Hoyt punched him out cold. Bridget got Jason in his squad car and started driving him to the hospital. He didn’t want any of that, so he offered to let her stay at his place.
As he came to, Jason had a few important words for Bridget:
“We ain’t going to have sex tonight…I hope you understand,” he said. (Jason is just THE best.) Later, Bridget was frantic to get back to Anchorage and Jason cutely helped her out. He left her in his bedroom while he slept in his living room chair. Bridget couldn’t sleep and she talked with Jason all night. He told her the story of how he and Hoyt became best friends. The trials and tribulations of their relationship.
He admitted that everything changed for Hoyt when Jessica walked into his life. After Jason’s betrayal, Hoyt had told Jason that there was something inside of him that was missing. Jason had never forgotten that. He felt sorry for Bridget because the stars had aligned in Hoyt and Jessica’s favor for a second time.
“You just happened to pick a guy who just happened to already meet the girl who he was supposed to be with,” Jason said.
Oh yeah. All of this is while Hoyt and Jessica were passionately making love. “Hoyt and Jessica belong together,” Jason said. There’s no denying that now.
Later, Jason told Bridget that he really wanted kids. (Music to our ears!) Bridget confessed that Hoyt was wrong about Jason. “There’s nothing inside of you that’s missing. Everything that a man is supposed to be is already in there.”
Just so you know, Jason and Bridget are the most adorable two people on the planet. Bridget’s biggest secret was that she let someone cheat off of her on a test while Jason really like pink. Can these two just get married?
Meanwhile, the Yakuza brought Sarah (Anna Camp) up from her cell. She literally thought she was going to die. But no, Pam just wanted her back to blonde. (Us too.)
After Eric had helped Sookie and Bill yet again, he was a bit frustrated. The most shocking reveal of all happened on Eric’s end.
He said he would have sex with Ginger! Ginger was overwhelmed with happiness and she wanted to do it on the throne. She straddled Eric and then it was over. Eric was slightly confused and concerned about Ginger’s well-being.
Eric didn’t think too much of it and went to find Pam. When he walked into the dungeon, he found Pam locked up, and there was a wooden stake hanging directly over her heart. Mr. Gus Jr. was done with his lies. Each cutting of the ropes brought the stake closer to Pam. He demanded to know where Sookie lived or Pam would bite the dust.
Will Pam live to see another day? She better!
As this is happening, Bill walked up to Sookie’s door ready to talk. However, we’ll just have to find out what he says in the final episode of True Blood EVER!
HollywoodLifers, what did YOU think of tonight’s True Blood? Still pissed Bill refused the cure? (We are.) Are you glad Jessica and Hoyt reunited? Aren’t Bridget and Jason just the cutest? Let us know!
