Why so quiet about the last two episodes? Well, I guess it was because I don’t know what to say about the roller coaster that is True Blood season 3.
In episode 9 I fully expected there to be a big break-up between Bill and Sookie. And in the beginning of the episode they did in fact break-up, after she woke up in the hospital after he almost killer her. I was sooooo happy that their relationship was dead and buried and then the rug got ripped out from underneath me as the episode ended with Bill and Sookie professing their love and having primal sex on the floor.
In episode 10 they are cleaning up Sookie’s house with nary a word about their break-up… as if it never happened. She does ask Bill about the file he kept on her but he lies (like the pond scum he is). Sookie asked him if he knew the Queen and he said he was merely a subject of hers when we know full well he was a right hand man.. a procurer of whatever miss Sophie Anne wanted. And oh so ironically he moved to Bon Temps and acquired the person QSA was so interested in. Hmmmm….. He also told Sookie he only kept a file on her to deduce why Eric Northman was so interested in her. Bill Compton is a BIG FAT LIAR!
The preview and spoilers for future episodes have me biting my nails. Pam asks Eric why he doesn’t hand Sookie over to Russell as a bargaining chip, which is alarming. But he does have a moment with Sookie where he tells her that if he dies he will always regret not having kissed her… sweet.
But will he turn around and use her as a pawn? The Eric from the books wouldn’t but Alan Ball seems to enjoy tearing the book character apart and making him the villain.
From the episode 11 description we have this tidbit: “Knowing he’s no physical match for the King, Eric tempts Russell with the “ultimate vampire dream.”
Could that be Sookie and her “powers”? This spoiler photo seems consistent with that.
What the Freakin Heck????? Alan Ball if your life had a face I would punch it.
Anyway, Sookie doesn’t seem to be struggling or surprised. Maybe she and Eric devised this plan together… I hope, I hope??? But the episode 12 description tells us Eric has something to feel guilty about: “Eric grapples with his conscience while plotting his perfect revenge against Russell.” Ugh.
Alan Ball has already said that the season 3 finale will be mostly about Eric, Sookie, Bill and trust and that it will go some place unexpected. The suspense is killing me. I just hope I won’t be throwing darts at my TV because it turns out that Bill is the hero of the day and Eric is the stuff you scrape off the bottom of your shoe.
