Bloody Bits: A True Blood Cheat Sheet for Ep. 4July 6th, 2012 | Posted by in Featured TV | Television
This is not a recap. And it’s not a review. Think of it more like a refresher of last week’s episode before you watch this week’s episode.
“We’ll Meet Again” is the name of Episode 4 of the True Blood’s Season 5. Here’s a little rundown of what went down.
Tara doesnt die – Despite her best efforts, Tara still lives on. Pam sensed she was trying to kill herself and was forced to lay down the law. Seems she has some of that maternal-vampireness in her after all. She takes care of Tara, realizing that being a maker means responsibility. Tara was actually less annoying this episode, calming down and at the end, even feeding on a human for the first time (at Pam’s insistance….what is the agenda there?)
There’s a snitch in the Authority – And he’s dead now. Turns out, it was that little boy who was on the council. He was caught with some Sanguinista type vidoes on his laptop and quicker than he could say “I was just holding it for a friend.” he’s given the true death.
Terry Bellefleur goes down memory lane….to Iraq – En route to their deranged army buddy’s hide out, Terry has some serious flashbacks to whatever it was that happened in Iraq. Turns out, a bunch of the army dudes got all sorts of drunk and high upon arrival in their Iraqi village. Suddenly one guy shoots an Iraqi teenager, gun fire is exchanged and before you even knew what happened, Terry and his friends are standing in the middle of about a hundred dead Iraqi villagers. That is a pretty big Uh-Oh. No wonder he is so messed up.
Lafayette has some bad juju in him – He is pretty pissed at Sookie for telling Alcide she murdered Debbie. And then one night, out comes that bad magic that is living inside him ever since Jesus died. He cuts the breaks on Sookie’s car which, after the most horribly-filmed out-of-control-car scene, she manges to escape from before the car smashes into a tree. She obviously doesn’t know it’s him, so she goes home and gets crazy drunk by herself. Which makes sense, since everyone she knows pretty much hates her.
Alcide is a good friend - He decides that he has to tell Debbie’s parents what happened to her. Only, a slightly different version of it - where the now-dead former packmaster killed Debbie because she rejected him. Her parents leave town, content with this explanation, but Andy Bellefleur smells something fishy. Speaking of good friends, though, Jessica comes to Jason’s aid and glamors Andy into no longer pursuing the Debbie case. That was nice of her. Anyway, Alcide goes over to see Sookie, and finds her wasted. She throws herself at him and they make out.
Eric lets Pam go – After a bitter fight where Eric accused Pam of digging up Russell Edgington (who made no appearance this episode. For real. Where is he?), she tells him to just release her officially so she no longer is his progeny (this is a big deal in vampire land). After much debate, he ends up letting her go. She cries, he cries, he says its for the best because he probably will die on this mission with Bill, and Pam is a vamp-mommy now with Tara to take care of. It was all very sad, especially knowing how much Pam really loved him.
Jason Stackhouse and Andy Bellefleur go clubbing in fairy land – They get taken to a party that is apparently in an alternate dimension filled with fairies. It looks a lot like the Moulin Rouge. In the middle of his lap dance, Jason sees his fairy cousin Hadley, who tells him he HAS to get Sookie away from earth and back to fairyland. He is mystefied, per usual. And Andy runs into that fairy he randomly banged last season. Whats up with that?
So that is more or less it. Finally, an episode where something good happens although we STILL have not seen any bad guys. But it seems like the ball is starting to get rolling and this episode was just interseting enough to remind me why I love this show so much. Phew. I was starting to get worried.
Here is a preview of next week’s episode, awesomely titled “Let’s Boot and Rally.”
