Post True Blood Episode Meanderings

Still sad over Tommy, looking on TB boards most is talk of Sookie's Choice, not lil Scrappy.

This HBO video is shock full of surprises, whew!

Lot's of burning, no likey.
 I had posted this months ago and till Barbara mentioned it over the weekend, totally forgot about FOS. How could I? Lot's of plot threads have been dropped but I think this one hasn't, we'll see.

The Rev. Steve Newlin went missing under suspicious circumstances after attending a pray-in on January 15. His car was found abandoned on route 43, with his wallet and keys left inside. He was last seen wearing a white button-down shirt with light blue Levi's jeans. Any and all information on his whereabouts is greatly appreciated and can be contributed below anonymously. The world needs his holy light now more than ever! Please HELP!

This is a screencap from next week's promo more HERE, so what happens between this bravado and Eric burning, EEEEEEEKKKKK?
Eric Scenes

Jessica is in a bitching mood, imagine if she was turned when she had her time of the month? 

Video interview with Chris Bauer, he hints about Holly, NOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Wetpaint's recap is up-
As piles of bloody corpses and injured muggles writhe around on the floor, Antonarnie is overwhelmed by guilt, so she heads back to the Moongoddess Emporium with her gang of possessed vamps while Sookie and Eric stare at each other deeply and presumably eye sex.
They also did a 5 cutest amnesiac Eric moments, they are here with the cute photos of cuteness, it's cute. 
WSJ's recap, always a good read (at the link)-
In the oddest side story of the night, Terry decides to go intervention on Andy’s V-addicted butt by dragging him to Fort Bellefleur. What is that, you ask? It’s a tree fort out in the woods that was Terry’s PTSD residence after his tour in Iraq and the place where the Bellefleur men work out their issues. With the aid of some target practice cans, some good old-fashioned airing of their respective childhood hurts and then some ugly punches, the two come to a meeting of the minds. Andy admits he’s a junkie and incredibly ashamed of himself. Terry gives Andy forgiveness and then tells him to clean up and walk the miles-long trek home as his first step to recovery. It was nice to see Chris Bauer (Andy) and Todd Lowe (Terry) get a chance to shine, but they’re goofy drama did feel like an unnecessary distraction from the other more fraught storylines.
I’ll be the first to admit that Sookie’s random hand-light bursts do tend to be a bit convenient. When all else fails, Sookie throws some blue light at the situation and everything’s ok. However, her intervention in the fight between Eric and Bill at the start of tonight’s episode was fantastic. Not only did she stop the fight, but she also zapped the magic out of Eric, putting him back to old-Eric with a few Sookie-related upgrades. He remembers who he was, but the experiences he’s had since Antonia took his memory have changed him. In other words, he’s the best (and worst) of both Erics. 

Sookie and Eric’s heart to heart included Eric explaining where his head is at, and Sookie admitting that she still loves Bill, but she loves Eric too. There wasn’t much time for the two of them to explore their options from there as there were other pressing matters to attend to.
I had this terrible feeling tonight, watching Jesus and Lafayette say goodbye to each other earlier as Jesus planned to talk to Antonia/Marnie, that he was going to die. While that didn’t happen tonight, I still have this sinking feeling that Jesus won’t make it out of this season alive. <Yep, a lot of us spoilerites have the same feeling.
NY Mag's Vulture Blog's recap, some lulz at the link- 
We’re racing toward the end, and each of our beloved characters is facing tests of the spirit. Sookie, finally forced to choose between the dead and the living, aligns herself with family and friends. Tara, downtrodden and angry, finally turns her pent-up rage into a tangible force to be reckoned with. Andy, forced to face his V addiction head-on, takes solace in the strength of family. And finally, Tommy meets his demise, ending his story line in a resolution that was more cop-out than anything else. Most important of all: Eric’s memory is back and no one had sex tonight. True Blood returned to its gory glory and shelved the sappy love story in favor of actual plot development. I have never been happier to see Eric remain dressed for an entire episode. Let’s see how the end will play out.
