True Blood Episode 7 Review: Burning House of LoveBy
In Episode 7, Burning House of Love, Sookie proudly spills her guts on her relationship with Bill. Unfortunately, not everyone believes vampires and humans should mix so her announcement isn’t met with much support.
Malcolm and his vampire gang visit Merlotte’s to get a snack; Sam Merlotte attempts to defend his customers but is clearly no match for a vampire. Lucky for him, Bill arrives in the nick of time and lures the vamps away from the bar. This surprises Sookie at first but she eventually realizes that Bill played along with the vampires in order to get them away from Merlotte’s and thus avoid bloodshed.
Meanwhile, Jason, our lovable bed hopper, is so addicted to “V” that he travels alone to Fangtasia, the vampire bar run by Eric Northman, intent on obtaining vampire blood at the source. While trying to explain his needs to the vampire bartender (who’s getting impatient with him), he’s approached by a mysterious young woman who tells him “I’ve got what you need.” Her name is Amy Burley and she’s the newest character to join the True Blood cast. I’m not sure about Amy’s agenda, but I think there’s more to her than meets the eye.
Tara takes her mother to a voodoo priestess to have the demon removed from her body. Although Tara remains skeptical through most of the ritual, some weird, unexplainable things occur during the excorcism. If Tara’s mother stops abusing alcohol I believe Tara may visit the voodoo priestess herself.
The “AIDS burger” hoodlums witness the scene at Merlotte’s with Malcolm and later decide to take matters into their hands in order to get the vampires out of town. The episode ends with Sookie worrying over whether Bill was with Malcolm and his thugs when things got hot.
