Soul of Fire Recaps, Hosted by Lafayette's Caftan

Rollingstone's Showdown at the Moon Goddess Emporium, whole recap at the link.
The residents of Bon Temps are pissed off in "Soul of Fire," Season Four's penultimate episode. Be they vampire, witch, werewolf, shape-shifter, human or telepathic part-faerie, they're mad as hell and they're not going to take it anymore. This episode saw what appeared to be the final vampire-witch battle, with the vamps triumphing over the violently disturbed Wiccan Marnie – with help from Jesus'brujo magic and Sookie's trusty light power. Although the Sookie-Bill-Eric love triangle remained at a standstill this episode, Pam is forced to accept the fact that her maker's allegiance is no longer to her, causing a high potential for Eric's progeny to become dangerously unhinged. Still, love wasn't entirely absent from the plot, with Jessica and Jason trying to ignore the passion between them and failing miserably. As the episode drew to a close though, it seemed wartime had finally given way to peace. But as the final 60 seconds proved, "dead" doesn't necessarily mean "gone".

Question: Any True Blood scoop ahead of Sunday’s finale? —Scott
 By the end of the hour, the show will be down at least one series regular.

EW's take on the episode, it's a long one at the link.
Let's begin with the Battle of Moon Goddess Emporium. After Marnie stabbed Casey, one of her innocent captives, in the chest with a knife, Antonia wanted to severe ties with her. Cue Lafayette's brilliant line, "Oh shit. Marnie just puked a bitch out," which I predict is already on a T-shirt somewhere. Lafayette was the only one who could see the argument, which ended with Marnie doing a binding spell to suck Antonia back into her. I'd like to think that look of indigestion Marnie had was Antonia working some kind of spell, like a stink bomb.
Who else is hoping the Marnie story line wraps itself up in next week's season finale? Fiona Shaw has been wonderful on the show (awkward high-five!), but after this episode, my patience has grown as thin as Jessica's ("I’m so sick of silverin’ myself all day every day, being pissed off all the time. This is what PMS used to feel like"). And Pam's ("Can we blow up these Wiccan dipshits already? I got a mani-pedi at 4").

Bill, Eric, Pam, Jason, Shiz

The A-Team is close to launching their balls to the wall attack on the witches when Jason comes scurrying out of the shadows. Sookie’s inside - put down your weapons. Sookie is perpetually in the way, yet everyone acts surprised every single time she turns up somewhere she doesn’t belong. As anyone who’s been watching this show for more than 10 minutes could intuit, Sookie has a flagrant disregard for authority. The fact that she’s inside Moon Goddess should be no surprise.
Everybody hates Sookie, until Jason comes to his sister’s defense; Sookie picked Eric up off the side of the road and cared for him when he was just a giant baby in a pair of basketball shorts; she let Bill use her as a personal bloody buffet and saved his ass, too. There’s no way they can blow up the building with Sookie the Savior inside, so the mission is aborted. It’s time to find another way.'s  Meredith has the Pros and Cons up 
Con: Roy is still alive, annoyingly calls the Ye Olden Witch Shoppe "Hotel California." He then goes on to explain exactly what Hotel California is (for any of you that haven't heard this song 1,000 times). And didn't understand the dated reference. True Death for Roy please.
Pro: Everyone says "Fucking Sookie" displaying the deep resentment most of the South feels for this meddlesome individual who is constantly burying her nose in everyone's business (and later acts surprised when she's caught in the middle of all the drama). Someone needs to put a bell on that girl...or just stab her with a poison arrow, your choice!
Con: Debbie Pelt is hanging out in her underwear on the bed, in front of Marcus' kid. Yeah you're going to make a great mom, Debs.
Pro: Jesus tells Lafayette that he has to do some "BRUJO SHIT."
Pro: Now can we have an Alcide and Sam spin off where they spend their days fighting crime in New Orleans? Now go to the link and read the rest, laughs aplenty.

Is this Debbie pulling a gun on Sam?
Who is she zapping now? Basta.
Is this the end of Jesus? I like Kevin but I want this Lala back.
