For the past six years, we’ve watched Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) string along every supernatural suitor in Bon Temps, giving nary a f*** how her flighty indecisiveness might make them feel. But on the Aug. 4 episode of True Blood, our fickle fairy friend was given an ultimatum — one that will force her to finally choose a guy and stick to him. For real this time.
When someone dies in your bed, it’s customary to simply wash the sheets and carry on. But after the gruesome/melty death we witnessed on the July 28 episode of True Blood, I’m thinking Bill (Stephen Moyer) might want to just throw out his entire bed and start fresh.
True Blood did a little house cleaning July 21, knocking off two relatively important, though very different, characters. We also got to see fairy-on-fairy sex for the first time, and it was even more sparkly than I could have ever imagined — not that I spent a lot of time imagining it. … Oh, boy.
Let’s start this week’s recap with a few rhetorical questions: Why does Sookie (Anna Paquin) keep digging into her past? Hasn’t she learned by now that the more questions she asks, the more people come out of the woodworks to kill her? Oh, who am I kidding? This is Sookie we’re talking about; she’s a big fairy dumb-dumb who gets off putting herself, and others, in harm’s way — which explains why the July 14 episode of True Blood ended with her being drowned in a damn lake.
The cat — or, rather, the fairy-vampire — is officially out of the bag! The July 7 episode of True Blood revealed that Ben (Rob Kazinsky), the fairy who’s been charming Sookie (Anna Paquin) since he arrived in Bon Temps earlier this season, is also Warlow, the centuries-old vampire that haunts Sookie’s nightmares. And Rob is the first to admit that, yeah, the characters’ relationship is a little complicated.
From the moment Ben (Rob Kazinsky) smoldered his way into Bon Temps earlier this season, Truebies have speculated a potential connection between Sookie’s fairy suitor and her ancient aggressor Warlow. The July 7 episode of True Blood finally proved those clever fans right — and the connection turned out to be a lot more direct than you might have imagined.
Though the verdict is still out as to whether Bill (Stephen Moyer) is good or bad, one thing is clear: Dude is crazy! He officially accepted his role as the ‘savior’ of the vampire race on the June 30 episode of True Blood, and turned to an unlikely ally for support — Sookie (Anna Paquin)!
