Last week ended with a surprise from Marnie who will not stop even in death. She possesses Lafayette and this week, she takes Jesus hostage to steal his demon magic. Sookie and Tara are trying to relax at home but, invariably, dark thoughts creep in as Sookie sees visions of her dead grandmother.
Tommy’s funeral is sad but surprisingly, Mrs. Fortenberry shows up and then Luna and Emma. Sam feels a little relieved to find that Luna cares that much for his feelings. It is hard to tell what Jason is going to do but confessing everything to Hoyt was the last thing on my mind and Jason gets a beat down from his former best friends for his trouble.
Marnie performs a spell to take Jesus’ magic which in the end has her stabbing Jesus to death as the demon transfers to her. Lafayette is going to feel really bad if he ever gets out of this. At Merlotte’s, it is interesting to watch the True Blood writers trying to set up next season with a new friend of Terry’s showing up at Merlotte’s out of the blue. His name his Sgt. Patrick Devin and apparently Terry saved his life a couple of times during the war. Arlene gets a visit from the ghost of her husband, Rene, during a smoke break and he warns her that Terry is bringing trouble to everyone and she better run.
Sookie is rehired by Sam as all of this is going but she has to wear bunny ears to support the Halloween theme. She finds Alcide sitting at the bar depressed. He tells her that he and Debbie are finished for good and maybe she needs to be thinking about her choice in “men” and look for someone non-vampire who can really take care of her. It’s strongly inferred that the somebody is him.
Sookie goes outside after her discussion with Alcide to relax and finds Holly puffing on a joint. Tara pulls up in her usual panic mode to tell them Jesus is dead and Marnie is on the warpath for the vampires again, only this time she’s inside Lafayette’s body. Holly tells them she has her emergency wiccan kit – salt, sage, and hair. They all jump in the car to save the vampires, leaving the only person who really works at Merlottes, Arlene, to mind the store.
They arrive to find Bill and Eric tied to a pyre for burning. Marnie is yelling her usual “oh poor me, my life is so hard” stuff which gives Holly time to put a circle of salt around the whole area. Marnie lights the pyre and as Bill and Eric begin to cook, Sookie uses her powers to stop Marnie and the three witches make a circle and begin chanting. Spirits begin to move from everywhere toward the scene as the chanting continues. Gran and Antonia both arrive and Gran pulls Marnie out of Lafayette while Antonia takes Marnie away. Lafayette ends up recovering at home, wallowing in guilt when Jesus shows up to tell him everything is okay and they will always be together.
Jason still smarting from Hoyt’s beat down but he wastes no time in getting into Jessica when she shows up at the door. He is a bit taken aback though when she says she does not want a relationship, she is only interested in sex – he thought that was always his line.
Sookie is back at Bill’s house feeding her blood to both Eric and Bill to get them back to strength only to knock them down again. She tells them that she may love them both but it is way to hard to live this way. She says goodbye to both Bill and Eric as she leaves with her head held high – at least until she gets outside and starts to cry.
Pam is grieving for Eric but she will be ecstatic to hear that Sookie dumped him so things might be looking up for her in the next season. The same goes for Sookie. Can she get over the vampire duo for a little doggie style with a wolf? Not sure since this Season 4 ends with Sookie killing Debbie Pelt after Debbie shot Tara. How will Alcide handle that?
It’s getting close to the end of season four of True Blood and this episode starts out with the vampire squad all in black getting ready to blow up the Moon Goddess emporium and kill everybody inside. Marnie’s holding them captive and the black-clad group is not to happy when they find out their favorite fairy snack is with the witches. Bill and Eric even offer to commit suicide in order to save her. Here are some of the best lines in this episode of True Blood:
1. Jessica on her way to blow up the witches – “I’m so sick of silvering myself all day every day and pissed off all the time…this is what PMS used to feel like.”
2. Pam as she endorses Bill’s plan to kill the witches – “Let’s blow up these wiccan dipshits already, I’ve got a mani/pedi at four.”
3. Marnie’s sidekick Roy to the group – “Don’t you get it, this is the Hotel California baby, you can check out but you can’t never fuckin leave.”
4. Lafayette when Antonia left Marnie’s body – “Oh shit, Marnie just puked the bitch out.”
5. Andy lost out in the woods after Terry made him walk home from the treehouse – “hold it together man…don’t go all lost in nature retarded”
6. Antonia tells Pam – “don’t laugh too much, you wouldn’t want your lips to fall off” which wipes the smile right off her face.
7. “The true death to save Bo Peep, I don’t fuckin’ think so” – Pam yells as Bill is about to shoot Eric to save Sookie and she grabs the bazooka and fires at Sookie and Marnie.
8. Jesus tells Lafayette as they use Casey’s dead body to cast a spell to pull Antonia out of Marnie – “where we’re going right now, it’s deep. And you may hear and see things that you really don’t want to.” Lafayette’s like…”huh, that ship’s fuckin’ sailed.”
9. Alcide to the motorcycle dude in Marcus’ shop – “Your packmaster’s a sociopath.”
10. When the fairy in the woods tells Andy that he is handsome and muscular as she rubs his chest, he answers -” I have been cuttin’ back on the carbs.”
And a visual that I’m not likely to forget – Eric drinking blood from Roy’s heart like it’s a soda.
Sam got his revenge against Marcus – he kicks his ass – but it’s Alcide who did the actual killing. He abjures Debbie since he found her half naked in his bedroom with Marcus when they arrived. Andy gets it on with a beautiful fairy in the woods, looks like it’s his lucky day. Bill shoots Marnie so that’s the end of her… or is it? Because this episode of True Blood ends with Lafayette being possessed by the spirit of Marnie. I’m sure he wishes he had never heard of the concept of a medium because he’s got to be tired of getting possessed by ghosts.
The latest season of True Blood begins with beautiful people milling about in a beautiful garden. All the guests are served glowing fruit on a silver platter. Just as you begin to ask yourself what is going on, Sookie pops out of thin air holding the hand of Claudine, her fairy godmother. She’s a little sick from her magical trip but quickly becomes enthralled by the beauty all around her.
Sookie is surprised to see her own grandfather in the crowd – looking as young as when he left them decades before. He is eating one of the glowing fruits and when one is offered to Sookie, she rejects it, feeling that something is not quite right. That brings in the Queen of the Fairies, Maab, who tries to force Sookie to eat the fruit. The fairies are using it to harvest energy from humans in their world because the vampire’s insatiable thirst for their blood has run them out of our world.
Maab changes into her real form which is rather hideous and tells Sookie that she will never be allowed to go near vampires again. Sookie escapes with her grandfather and goes through a portal to land back in our dimension. Her grandfather starts to die immediately because he ate the glowing fruit. He gives Sookie the pocket watch he always treasured so that she can pass it onto Jason.
Sookie comes back to her house and finds out that Jason sold it because, in his world, she’s been gone over a year. He does not believe her story about seeing her grandfather in a fairy world until she gives him his grandfather’s watch. Next, vampire Bill speeds his way over after sensing her for the first time in a year. He is ecstatic to see her but Eric pops over just as quickly and he tells Sookie that everyone thought she was dead but he never, ever gave up on her. Bill makes him leave but not before Eric reminds her that he is the only one who really cares about her. She then sends Bill away saying that even though it’s been a year for him, it’s only been two weeks for her and she has not forgiven his betrayal.
Pam is at Fangtasia trying to make a vampire friendly commercial but she is not very good at persuading humans about anything. Eric takes over and his charm is immediate – he does a great job cajoling people into thinking that vampires are their best friends. Bill is on the other side of town doing the same thing at a town dedication and thanking Portia Bellefleur for her donation.
In the year that Sookie has been gone, Tara has been channeling all her anger into female boxing. She also has a new female lover who is just as tough as she is. Sookie finds out that Tara has moved away and no one in Bon Temps actually knows where she is. Jesus comes by Merlotte’s to try and patch things up with Lafayette who’s angry about a wiccan coven meeting that they attended. Jesus tells him that he has magic inside him and he needs to stop fighting it. He wants Lafayette to join the coven and learn more about his gift.
While talking to Portia about how to buy her house back, Sookie hears her thoughts as Portia speculates about what Bill ever saw in the waitress which Sookie finds very irritating. Jessica and Hoyt go to Fangtasia and she is acting very flirty as she dances alone in a corner while Hoyt sits at the bar. When a handsome human comes on to her, she really wants to bite him. Hoyt does not suspect what she is thinking as she tells him she needs to go to the bathroom but Pam informs her that only humans are allowed in the bathroom – no vampires. Jessica storms out, feeling a little defensive.
Sam is meeting with other shape changers and they all shift into horses to enjoy the evening. Jason shows up at Hot Shot to bring food to the family. The kids really like him but Felton has forced them to trick Jason into the barn so he can torture him.
An older witch, Marne, is at the coven meeting talking about her dead familiar, a bird named Minerva. She is very sad that the bird has passed on and she wants to complete a ritual for it. Lafayette has shown up for this meeting and his presence has increased their magic ability to the point where they actually bring the bird back to life, shocking all present.
Sookie is coming out of the shower when Eric shows up in the middle of her room and half scares her to death. She orders him out but he informs her that he now owns the house and he can come and go whenever he likes. Sookie stands there speechless and it’s an awesome ending to the first True Blood episode of this season – it was certainly worth the wait!
Here’s the video trailer for True Blood Episode 11: To Love Is To Bury. Another woman is murdered in this episode. There’s no real evidence that this one had been intimate with vampires but a suspicion was enough to force the killer into action:
