Tuesday's True Blood Bites, Now with Added Earthquake

Meredith Woerner has her pros and cons up, read it all at the link (extra lulz this week).

Pro: Hey Alcide! The wolf giant is carrying Sookie to safety, only to be pushed down by Beeeell. Take that dogboy!. The dog makes...I guess we can technically call these "angry puppy eyes" now? Because they kind of look like the plastic buttons we all chewed on that made up our stuffed animals' dead amber eyes. And then, once inside, Bill adds insult to injury and screams at poor Alcide, "Werewolf, I'm gonna need you to shut the fuck up!"

Pro: ANTONIA GAVILAN OF LOGRONO! actually screams out, "MY NAME IS ANTONIA!!!!!" when someone calls her Marnie. It's like they're reading our minds!
Pro: Debbie, SURPRISE FLOWERS! HA HA HA HA HA HA NOT A GUN LOL LOL Sookie's face. They proceed to have a nice talk and you think that Debbie's heart might be in the right place. The world hopes it's not. Also, kudos to Debbie, she's just amazing at playing a struggling train wreck.

Episode #46 – 4.10: 'Burning Down the House' As all hell breaks loose in Shreveport, Sookie summons her most potent powers yet to save Bill, in the process breaking a spell and leading Marnie/Antonia to re-evaluate her mission. Jason urges Jessica to glamour him for Hoyt's sake; Terry drags Andy to "Fort Bellefleur" for an intervention; Alcide reconsiders his allegiances after Marcus fight with Tommy; Jesus, accompanied by Sookie, Lafayette and Jason, tries to breach the Moongoddess Emporium's defenses to liberate Tara and Holly, while Bill leads a brigade of vampires committed to blowing the place to kingdom come.

                                     Nan does damage with a pencil, you don't mess with her!
                    I don't want Marshall to leave the show but this doesn't bode well for Tommy
                       I don't know if this is Tio Luca but I think it is, I hope they are walking towards                                                                   Antonia!

True Blood is riding higher than ever, and Sunday's episode, "Let's Get Out of Here," is proof. The episode was watched by 5.53 million viewers, the highest rating in the history of the series. The previous high was 5.44 million viewers with the penultimate episode of season 3.

Cinema Blend has some ideas on what's to come, oh yeah!
HBO released the “Behind the Episode” video for True Blood’s “Let’s Get Out of Here” episode. It addresses one part of the episode that I really didn’t love, and another that may actually be a major clue to how this season is going to be resolved, so read on with that in mind.

Episode writer Brian Buckner and director Romeo Tirone discuss the episode in the video below. One of the things they talk about is Sookie’s dream. Much like the V-trip last week, I didn’t love the dream scene this week. I thought it broke the pace of the episode and took too long to play out, all to get to an issue that was sort of already implied. Sookie wants both Eric and Bill. That’s an interesting non-twist. I just think it could have been demonstrated in a less obvious way. Then again, TB's not exactly known for subtly.

Moving on, there may be a big clue to how things are going to wrap up. Pay attention to what’s said about Lafayette and Jesus, and what went on with Mavis. The story of the woman with the
lost baby seemed sort of a tangent, but maybe not...

“This thing that Jesus finds that he’s able to do, and this thing that Lafayette finds that he’s able to do is going to prove helpful to the people of Bon Temps."
Right now, Marnie is possessed with Antonia’s spirit. Perhaps Lafayette being a Medium and Jesus having the ability to extract a spirit from a medium’s body will play a part in getting Antonia out of Marnie’s body and sending her (and her magic) away.
Speculation time!
If I were going to theorize, I’d say that at some point, Antonia could end up in Lafayette's body. Maybe something happens to Marnie that sends her spirit out and into the nearest Medium, after which, Jesus has to get Antonia out (hopefully without hurting or killing Lafayette). If this is how it plays out, it would certainly get Lafayette and Jesus off the hook for what happened to Eric, and it would justify all of this medium-business, which has taken the duo off the path to undo their part in Eric’s and Pam’s witch-problems.

There are tragically only three episodes left in the fourth season of True Blood, the most outlandish and diverse season yet of the HBO drama. What once seemed to be a program simply about vampires has blossomed into a smorgasbord of shapeshifters, werewolves, faeries, werepanthers, witches, and mediums. Fret not, dear viewer, HBO has released the synopses of the last two episodes to hold you over, and season five will be here soon enough.
Episode eleven, Soul of Fire, will be airing on Sunday, September 4th. Here’s the description:
As the Wiccan-vampire standoff reaches a critical juncture, Sookie (Anna Paquin) summons her faerie powers to prevent Marnie (Fiona Shaw) from bewitching Bill (Stephen Moyer), Eric (Alexander SkarsgĂ„rd) and Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) into a suicide march, while Jesus (Kevin Alejandro) casts a secret spell designed to un-bind Marnie/Antonia and break the witch’s deadly defenses.  Sam (Sam Trammell) settles a score with Marcus (Dan Buran); Alcide (Joe Manganiello) confronts Debbie (Brit Morgan) about her allegiances; Andy (Chris Bauer) finds unexpected passion in the forest; Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) is consumed by the past.
It’s about time that Sookie used her faerie powers to help Eric and Bill, both of whom she allegedly loves despite the fact that she’s done nothing but silver one of them down when Marnie/Antonia tries to make him see the sun. And clearly, it’s no surprise that there will be Debbie-related drama.
Episode twelve, the season finale, And When I Die, will air on Sunday, September 11th. Description is as follows:
It’s Samhain, Wicca’s greatest holy day, and spirits of the dead surface in Bon Temps, giving Sookie valuable allies to combat Marnie’s newest incarnation.  Lafayette’s latest medium encounter imperils his relationship with Jesus; Jason (Ryan Kwanten) finds confession good for the soul, but not the body; Alcide makes a heartfelt appeal to the woman he loves; Terry (Todd Lowe) receives an unexpected visitor at Merlotte’s; Sam and Luna (Janina Gavankar) envision a storybook ending, for once; Nan (Jessica Tuck) wears out her welcome with Bill and Eric.  Debbie confronts Sookie and Tara (Rutina Wesley) with deadly consequences, and the denizens of Bon Temps brace for a new crisis with a familiar face.
Sounds like the holy witch day “Samhain” will be a perfect backdrop for the finale. Obviously the standout from this description is the last clause, “the denizens of Bon Temps brace for a new crisis with a familiar face.” Familiar face, huh? Well the serial killer from season one is dead, the maenad from season two is gone as well, but Russel Edgington (Denis O’Hare), the bad guy from season three, was only cased in cement. Not to mention the fact that writers have spoken about his return in the past…hmmm.
