True Blood Sunday, "I'm Alive and On Fire".

This deserves another post, seems a better copy too-

From the Boston Herald

 ‘If you kiss me, I promise to be happy.’

How long can “True Blood’s” Sookie (Anna Paquin) resist the sweeter, albeit amnesiac Eric (Alexander Skarsgard)?
In the episode “I’m Alive and On Fire,” Sookie can’t control Eric, who is drunk on fairy blood. She can’t even stop the playful vamp from pinching her butt. She soon loses him in the woods. With Alcide (Joe Manganiello) in wolf form, she finds him, hours later, in the sunlight, enjoying a naked dip in gator-filled waters.
If you remember, fairy blood allows vamps to walk in daylight - temporarily - and Eric turns to Sookie for comfort when he realizes he will never feel the sun again. He must be having some effect on her, because Sookie does what once would have been unthinkable: She lies to Bill (Stephen Moyer) to protect him.
Elsewhere, a badly hurt Jason (Ryan Kwanten) manages to escape from his captors, but then has a pack of werepanthers on his trail.  Tommy (Marshall Allman) makes a family visit he regrets. Bill realizes his connection to the Bellefleurs.
Marnie (Fiona Shaw, who gets better with every episode) has a dream-induced flashback to a witch’s burning and frantically searches for a spell to reverse Eric’s amnesia. When Pam (Kristin Bauer Van Straten) is ready to rip her throat out, a possessed Marnie unleashes another spell that reveal’s Pam’s true nature - and provides the night’s grossest moment.

From today's NY Post
“I knew the first day of working with him that Lafayette couldn’t die, because Nelsan is such an extraordinary actor and presence,” Ball wrote via e-mail. “I wasn’t going to let that go.”
And now, after a few seasons on the periphery, Lafayette is in the thick of it on “True Blood” with hot Wiccan boyfriend Jesus (Kevin Alejandro), and complicit in witch Marnie’s conjuring nefariousness.
“I have a lot to do,” Ellis says of this season, which will reveal that Lafayette has a certain power. “It means Jesus is going to have to deal with this newfound gift that [Lafayette] doesn’t know how to control.” He won’t say more, except to add, “Exploring new territory is fun.”

Are you prepared for a spoiler alert? On Sunday night’s episode of “True Blood” titled “I’m Alive and on Fire” Alcide helps Sookie hunt for a missing and child-like Eric; Marnie searches for guidance to break the spell she cast on Eric; Bill discovers a surprising common bond with the Bellefleurs; Jason begs for liberation from Hotshot and the vicious were-panthers; Sam penetrates Luna’s inner circle; Arlene sees the writing on the wall when it comes to her new baby and Tommy returns to his roots when his parents show up to cause more trouble for him and for Sam.
