After what seemed to be the longest wait ever, True Blood has returned and it is better than ever. Last night was the airing of the second episode and I decided to do something like summary posts about the entire season. Mostly because I need to update the blog constantly and maintain the speed of uploading posts. Anyway, this is not about me and my blog, this is about the best show during this Summer (for this Summer’s new shows – click here): blood suckers, fairies, panthers, warlocks, witches and werewolves are back!
True Blood ended last season with Sookie’s (Anna Pauquin) fairy-moment when she went to this magical place (luckily the writers made it more logical and didn’t bring in the fairy-fairy stuff) where she met her grandfather! He had been there for 20 years but it felt like hours. This could happen to Sookie but clever like she is, she got herself out of there alive and returned what seemed to be minutes later while actually months had passed! This was a great idea, making things progress inside the series, Sookie just left and we kind of left with her but for others, so much had changed. Bill is the king (after killing the queen – sadly, no Evan Rachel Wood – “alive” at least), the sheriff is addicted to V (should be interesting), Jason is taking care of the panther kids (kind of), Jessica (check our HER blog) and Hoyt are a couple with problems (one being that Jessica is a vampire), Lafayette is kind of doing magic with his boyfriend, Tara went to greener pastures (she’s gay now), Sam is running around with shape shifters and trying to make friends with his brother again and last but not least, Eric is still looking hot!
Having done some research (like I usually do), I found out that True Blood is probably considering the Sookie/Eric love-story since in the end of the second episode we find out that Eric has lost his memory about everything, I think this in a long run means to be the green light for their love story. She already is broken up with Bill and Eric owns her house (nice move by the way) – everything is kind of pointing towards a love affair between those two. I have to admit, I’m again the girl who likes the bad guy more than the good guy but True Blood has kind of mixed up those things. Bill isn’t the angel everybody thought, in some way Bill and Eric are both bad guys and Sookie just has to make up her mind about the fact that she and Eric are meant to be (this actually is true in the books, they end up together). Is the show gonna go the same way, I hope so, everything seems to be pointing to that direction (house, loosing his memory, Bill and Sookie having issues, Sookie’s previous fantasies about him).
Other than that True Blood is well known for its multiple story-lines that are carried out through 12 episodes with one main story which usually means fighting with one bad guy. In the 4th season it seems that the bad guy is the “mother” witch that can bring dead things alive again (there is a certain word I’m searching but can’t seem to recollect) – this means bad things for vampires because they are dead and therefore she can control them (if she doesn’t know that already I’m sure she’ll figure it out soon). The actress who has the honor to play this woman (who apparently is possessed by witches and not a witch herself) is Fiona Shaw, better known as aunt Petunia in the Harry Potter saga. I haven’t read the books (yet) but I read that this is the perfect casting, she was thin and tall in the books as well plus Shaw gives me the creeps just by standing – she has that quality to her to play somebody really mean.
In other story-lines, Jason is about to become a panther which is kind of sad, I liked him as human but we’ll see what the writers will come up with. He is also the only one who knows that Andy (the sheriff) has a drug problem and he would do anything to get himself some V. Other than that, there is also the small issue with people who are having a clear problem with vampires after last seasons events and this might cause some drama to Bill who is the king now. Bill of course has this other stick in his *** called Eric who is clearly after Sookie and I would think he will try to fight for her.
As it seems, the first two episodes have been enlightening and a lot has happened and too be completely honest, I simply can’t wait for the next episode – proud to be addicted to True Blood !
