It’s the finale, people! Last week’s episode was a bit weird, bouncing back and forth between Terry’s funeral and the liberation of vamp camp. Like many in the comments, I too am wondering how long the effects of Warlow’s blood are supposed to last. I still contend that he’s going to turn out to be evil after all. This week’s episode is jam-packed. Let’s get to the recapping!
Last week, Bill went after Eric after realizing that neither Sookie nor Warlow were inclined to help him save vampire-kind. Bill and Eric liberated vamp camp, with Eric freeing the vampires to take revenge upon their captors and Bill feeding the vamps in the white room of doom before the hatch opened revealing them all to the sun. Since they’d fed from Bill, they lived. Steve Newlin died however, held into the sun by Eric while staring up at his ex-wife while proclaiming his love for Jason Stackhouse. In Bon Temps, Terry was given a nice send-off, with each character speaking at length about what he’d meant to them and what a great guy he was. Yawn. Just when it looked like the naked blood demons were coming to take Bill to the vampire hereafter, James (Jessica’s sexy new vampire friend) fed him some of his blood and saved him. Jason let Sarah Newlin go, even though she’s the worst. Let’s hope that decision doesn’t come back to bite him. Eric chose not to celebrate the vampire victory and instead flew off to who knows where. What will happen to Sookie and Warlow? Will she become his faerie vampire bride, or will he turn out to be evil/awful as I suspect? Will the effects of Warlow’s blood wear off the other vamps, setting them up to be fried in the sun when they’re least expecting it? Let’s find out!
First off, this episode promises everything regarding nudity, sex and violence, so I’m excited. Sookie is at Terry’s gravesite, watching him being buried. Literally…she’s standing there watching them shovel handfuls of dirt on his casket. Alcide surprises Sookie, offering her a ride to the Bellefleur’s. She invites him to take a walk with her instead, upon which they reflect on a world gone mad.
Alcide wishes out loud that he was a telepath so he could be inside her head, and she says that’s the last place he should want to be. Suddenly, Alcide smells vamps and they turn a corner to see all the vamps from vamp camp getting naked, boning and dancing in the sun. Bill doesn’t look so sure he should have saved the vamps after all. Sookie sees Jason and they’re both relieved that he’s ok. She tells Alcide she’s going to investigate, and while he protests she says “She’s a survivor too.” Um, ok. You’re a survivor when everyone more powerful saves you every 20 minutes, but sure.
Sookie comes upon the frolicking vamps and it’s like a 1920 swingers party. People are banging on the couch outside and one of the vamps suggestions a Target run to get croquet and volleyball sets. LOL. Violet is feeding from Jason and Jason’s reminding her of the time she said he’d eventually want to have sex with her. That time has come for him, but Violet it still going to make him wait. He feeds from her, which is only going to make those sex dreams he has coming torture.
After a tense “Who the fuck is she?” exchange with Sookie, Violet receives a formal introduction to Jason’s sister. Once Violet realizes Sookie truly is his sister, Violet tells her she’s her sister too, then. By that, I mean she makes out with Sookie while Jason explains awkwardly that she’s European. It’s awesome. Sookie tells him to watch his back…even though it may feel like someone will be looking out for him forever, forever doesn’t mean what it used to. Pam and Tara rush up to Sookie and hug her. They’re super excited to be out during the daytime, while Bill watches mournfully from his house.
Sookie zaps back into faerieland and Warlow has created some kind of maypole for their wedding ceremony.
He explains that when night falls, they’ll each wind their flowery vines around the maypole then use their light to create two wedding rings from the singular ring Warlow wears on his necklace. Sookie, however, tries to back out of the marriage deal. Now that her friends aren’t in imminent danger, there is no ticking clock to be concerned with. She wants to be dated. Warlow, sounding exhausted, asks if he’s going to have to take her bowling and to drive in movies. No, but she does want to try being together and being part of the community for a while before getting married for all eternity. She’s not ready to leave her friends and her community behind just yet. All of a sudden, Warlow slaps the SHIT out of her. Oh hell…EVIL WARLOW!
Back in the real world, the vamps (and Jason) are playing volleyball.
