The opening of this week’s episode begins with the “Festival of Tolerance”. There are screams and people running, while the witches descend on Bill. Why is it so important for Antonia to kill Bill? I mean, such an elaborate plan to kidnap a vampire and then force him by magic, to kill another. Does Bill have a destiny that we aren’t aware of? Hmm... Yet, things are resolved when Sookie finally is able to stop Eric by using her powers, breaking the spell he was under. And I’m panda sad as I say buh-bye to Amnesia Eric.
Back at Bill’s compound, Jessica and Jason are having that awkward regret-after-sex talk. It seems that our boy is not happy with his decisions, and is feeling guilty about having relations with Jessica. True dat, it will break Hoyt’s heart. *Sighs* But can you blame Jessica for loving the pornstache? Come on! No one can resist Jason’s pornstache this year. Paired with a wife beater tank top and a tall one in his right hand. He’s fucking prime Bon Temp beefcake!
We then see Alcide driving a very ‘broken’ and ‘bruised’ Tommy. As I said before, I can’t be mad at him. He’s extremely stupid, but has a good heart somewhere in his hobbit little body.
But, we then flash over to Moon Goddess Emporium and see that Tara and one of the other witches is concocting a plan to cast their own spell. Doesn’t it suck being in a cult? Can’t leave when you want to? Yet, Antonia intercedes and begins to have an argument with her inner Marnie. I know, it’s weird.
Continuing on with Bill, it becomes clear as he argues with Nan that he’s not quite the dick that I had pegged him to be this season. And finally, a clear plan is devised. Kill the witch. But, as Nan and Bill discuss their next move, Eric has a sweet conversation with Sookie assuring her that he remembers everything and has not changed, only grown from this experience. But fucking Sookie has to mess everything up by admitting that she still loves Bill as well. She’s trying to make her dreams come true, I suppose.
Returning to Merlotte’s, Sam pulls up in time to meet Alcide with Tommy in his arms. This is an endearing moment, as Sam confides in Tommy that he has always loved him. Shortly after, Tommy dies. I’m. A little. Shocked!! They killed Tommy! I mean, I could have seen that coming by Tommy’s actions, but still, it’s always sad to lose a character on True Blood. RIP Tommy. I will miss your hobbitness.
Over at Jason’s house, Hoyt comes over to sing the blues. I suppose Hoyt has to try and make me feel bad for having those Team Jason/Jessica shirts printed. Well, screw him! But... Then Hoyt starts crying and I’m all like, fuck... Really? It is safe to say that this relationship is over, wouldn’t you say?
At the Bellefleaur home, Andy is finally confronted by Arelene and Terry with an empty vile in their hands. And the entire world is thanking them because Andy on V, is soooo annoying! Yes, somebody send that bear to rehab! Ala, crazy-ass Terry style! And just as I suspected, Terry get’s all militant on Andy’s ass and drags him out to an old fort that the two used to play in. It’s a place where the two hash out old memories, shoot some empty cans and eventually brings a submission of defeat from Andy.
In the mean time, Sookie and Jason warn Lafayette and Jesus of Bill’s plans to blow up the Moon Goddess. It’s here that I start to suspect that Jesus will have more to offer, now that he has channeled something darker when he was in Mexico. How this will pan out in the last few episodes is actually exciting to me. But as we see, Antonia and Marnie are conflicted in their goals. Antonia is having second doubts while Marnie is ready to move forward. It’s clear that Marnie doesn’t just hate vampires, but most people too. The combination of the two, could prove to be lethal. They hate everybody!
But now, just out front is Jason, Sookie, Lafayette and Jesus. The calvary has arrived! Understanding that Marnie is not in her right mind and clearly not held captive by Antonia, Jesus decides that he should be the one to approach the Moon Goddess in an attempt to talk to Marnie. But the store is protected by a spell, forcing Jesus to have to walk through it with all his might. While he musters through, we get a quick glimpse of a Nacho Libre... And then he succeeds and bust out on the inside. Holla, Jesus is the man!
Over at Alcide’s house. Yes, Alcide’s house!! Not Debbie’s, Alcide’s! - Debbie is smoking pot, talking nonsense and sitting extremely close to Marcus. We all know what’s going to happen next. The whore will hook up with “a different wolf”. But simultaneously, Sam and Alcide storm Marcus’s motorcycle shop looking for Marcus, pissed that Tommy was beaten to death. It seems that Alcide has changed sides, and clearly, taking this stand against his pack leader will lead to very bad things.
Inside the Moon Goddess, Antonia is impressed that Jesus is able to channel his inner Nacho Libre. But, she does not waiver. However, Marnie emerges temporarily and assures Jesus that everything is fine and exactly how she planned. She shows Jesus their captive vampires, while Tara and the other witch cast a spell to break the spell keeping them hostage. While Tara and Holly run out, Sookie and Lafayette run toward them and Antonia zaps them gone. Where the fuck did she get that power from, huh? Bitch please, why didn’t you just make the vampires disappear if you could make people disappear all along?
But, I should add that while all this is going down, Terry and Andy are still at their childhood fort, clearing the air of all their turmoils and troubles. Andy vows to stay clean and Terry forces him to walk home as the first step to recovery.
We end with a kick ass rendition of Talking Head’s Burning Down The House and a shot of our foursome: Bill, Eric, Pam and Jessica, aka The A-Team (A as in AWESOME) dressed in black, headed to battle the witches. Obviously, shit will go down next week. Are we ready? Only two more episodes!
