Episode 41 and counting… “I Hate You, I Love You”
So Sookie seems to be falling for the same man, well vampire, that she used to absolutely loathe. Although Eric has become a character who has lost his “vampire balls”, he has begun to find a path into Ms. Stackhouse’s good graces, and her bed for that matter. Yeah, they didn’t have sex but cuddling can be considered a very intimate activity. Even between human and vampire. Ms. Portia Bellefleur doesn’t seem to mind that she has been boning her great-great-great-great grandfather in the form of Bill. She even researched the topic and tried to convince King Compton that incest isn’t so bad and it’s a good idea to continue their sex-capades. Bill quickly glamour’s her into feeling the opposite and she runs away screaming.
Alcide, the resident werewolf, has found his own trouble. More like trouble has found him when the area Pack leader pays him a visit claiming that he never received Alcide’s registration. Dismissing the less than cordial gentleman, you can tell that this wasn’t the last time Alcide would be hearing from him. After casting a spell on Pam causing her skin to continually rot, Marnie is abandoned by Lafayette, Jesus and Tara. She is taken into custody by Bill so he can question her. After also glamouring her, he discovers that she cannot reverse the condition that has been bestowed upon Pam. In addition to all of this, he also finally discovers that Eric has lost his memory and is hiding out at Sookie’s.
After finding Jason on the side of the road and healing him by having him drink her blood, Jessica and Hoyt return him home. He shares the “horrors” of his stay at the werepanther camp. He also begins having weird sexual dreams about Jessica which include her boyfriend. Yikes! Speaking of the couple who has been having some relationship problems, the issues and distance between them seems to be increasing after Jessica offers a chilly shoulder to Hoyt. Arlene and Terry enlist the help of one of the town’s reverends who has now married Tara’s mom, Lettie Mae Thornton when they suspect that a ghost in their midst’s. They think it’s the ghosts of little Mikey’s real dad, Rene. Sam helps out his brother Tommy in a very big way after he kills his father and accidentally does the same to his mother. They dispose of the dead bodies by way of gators.
Oh, and the plot thickens or should I say will thicken next week when Bill walks in on Sookie… and Eric “interacting” on her couch. This season keeps getting better by the week. I haven’t been this glued to the show since season 1. Even the smaller stories are becoming more and more interesting such as Arlene and Terry’s possible poltergeist. I literally laughed out loud when Jason asked Hoyt if Jessica had raped him too. We should also find out very soon what happens to Jason when the next full moon arrives. Hopefully many of our answers will be revealed this Sunday. So until then, go forth and do bad things.
