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
Ausiello: 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.
