Tonight’s episode began with a tiny, but important bit of information. For a half a season and a couple of episodes, we’ve been informed that Sookie’s blood is a delicacy to Vampires. And as such, she smells delicious to them. Well, tonight, thanks to Mindwiped Eric, we finally learn what it is exactly that she smells like.
Honey Bunches of Oats.
I like Mindwiped Eric. Sure, he’s vacant, dull and clueless, but he says things spontaneously and gives us a break from cocksure Eric, which was getting pretty stale.
The plot thread of the night had to go to captive Jason. Held prisoner in “Bagheera City”, he struggles to deal with the fact that these people are trying to turn him into a were-panther. Of course, I don’t think these people are 100% reliable, do you? At this point I wouldn’t bet on them to be able to make ice if you gave them a freezer and water filled ice-cube tray, let alone another “Ghost Daddy”. I mean, I thought the point was they had to “Turn” Jason first. Still seems human to me. But that doesn’t matter to Crystal. She’s like “It’s Mexican Viagra time for you, buddy!!” and off she goes!!
I wanna send that whole hillbilly city a crate of wet-naps so they can wipe their freakin’ mouths.
Back in Bon Temps Proper, Andy Bellefleur had one of his best moments of the entire series. He’s fiendin’, he’s itchin’, he’s droppin’ F-Bombs during the Serenity Prayer, then he just goes for it! “V”! It’s finger sucking good!! Once he’s jacked up on that shit, apparently you had better get out of his way. Who knows what the hell will happen. He’s liable to get up in your face and write you up a speeding ticket for mowing your lawn.
Bill Compton is a new character this season! I like him much better now that he’s not slaving over Sookie. He’s walking tall, throwing his rank around, having chicks throw Co-worker with benefit arrangements at him. He’s livin’ the life. I just want him to send that chick out to do his bidding so I can officially use the phrase “Pimpin’” to describe him. As long as he remembers she doesn’t have a twist off cap, it looks like she’ll do whatever he wants!
Sam sticks to the moral high ground and Jessica continues to… not take the moral high ground. Guess which character is more fun? Still, you have to agree with Sam, his brother is a tool. I have a feeling that before the season ends, Sam ends up killing Tommy in self-defense or something, but basically winds up getting human shifting powers. I mean, they didn’t add that little bit of exposition in for nothing, right?
Evil Demon Baby got a toy!! “Dirty Dolly Can’t Get Rid of Me” is his new best friend!! Don’t get too excited over the previews for next week though folks, he’s playing with a red marker. I know. I slo-mo’ed it.
Apparently, the Wicked Witch of Bon Temps gets her power through cutting. I thought that was just a high school thing? No? (shrug) Learn something new every day.
And finally, the brain trust of Tara, Lafayette and Jesus are caught up in Fangtasia with Pam. When Pam promised to “Fuck, Eat and Kill” them, I was dying for someone to ask “In that order?” Is it just me or does she have the longest fangs in the show? Either way, I’m glad to see her role expanding, she’s a really fun character too.
The four of them shouldn’t have been so worried about Eric though, he was busy tapping a juice box of liquid Honey Bunches of Oats. “You killed my Faerie Godmother!” Sookie exclaimed! “Now can you do all her friends?”, I asked. Probably not. The Nosferatu-Tinkerbell clan will probably make a reappearance at some point, it can’t be avoided.
I just hope there’s a legion of Vampires there to chow down when they do.
