True Blood - Shake and Fingerpop



You have the same ton of developing threads, scattering about but somewhat tied. Maryann is the orbit, kinda taking some juice from the vampires. Eric and Jess have to pop in to let us know the vamps still own the camp. Speaking of camp, the Fellowship of the Sun is obviously important in the second season as a story arc. I'm not all that warm and fuzzies with it, but I get where they're going with it. Inside a potentially dangerous vampire-hunting group, there is Jason Stackhouse, vampire-lover Sookie's brother. On separate sides and yet completely separate from each other, without truly realizing the distance that currently splits them apart. He's unknowingly being pulled into the Newlins' marriage, seemingly a fixture of fondness between them. It is weird for me, this triangle. Throw the jealous Luke into this as some guy used to probably being Top Dog as Jason just steals his thunder time and again, and I'm kind of ready for this to go where it needs to and evolve into another story. Discussing where the vampires come from in relation to the Bible, and Jesus Christ, as Jason and Luke debate, is hilarious, though.

Tara's birthday serves as an excuse for Maryann to throw her a party, so with everyone gathered (and Merlotte's suffering as a result with shrinking to no clientele) she goes into her "tremoring, summoning the *it* bit" while those in attendance get all freaky and jiggy with it. Eggs and Tara are upstairs in Gran's room in Sookie's house fucking their brains out...it is quite softcore. But as bodies close in tight and dance provocatively, clothes come off, soon while Maryann is locked into this summoning everyone begins to eats dirt, punch each other, collapse into animals wallowing in the ground, and others smashing food in their faces. Sam decides to stay in Bon Temps after Daphne convinces him there's reason to. She has the scratches scarring her back and her knowledge of Sam's secret isn't a concern to her. Daphne makes no bones about her attraction to Sam with the episode hinting at a possible sexual encounter upcoming. They also have a midnight swim that allows the two to chat, flirt, and get to know each other.

Bill and Sookie head for Dallas with Jess in tow, after Hoyt is asked to leave. Sookie believes the trip would be good for Jess to get out. Bill teaches Jess to glamour a chauffeur who was hired by the Fellowship of the Sun to kidnap Sookie. So someone not only knew about this trip for Eric but told the Fellowship about it. Eric isn't above pointing out his stature to Bill often. Sookie points out that Bill prefers humans because he hates vampires. So you have this dichotomy. Bill was turned against his will, agonizes he had to turn Jess, and all of this has lent to a burning hatred for everything vampire...It indeed is a burden he tries to contend with nightly. Eric wants to find Godric because if he can be captured by humans, powerful as he is, no great vampire is safe. And if vampires feel endangered they might react, and that would cause war.

Lafayette is dealing with his bad gunshot wound on his leg, and Eric proposes an offering of his blood knowing his friendship to Sookie could be beneficial long-term. Lafayette knows this, and doesn't want to, but losing his leg and possibly dying isn't an option he finds to his liking. Eric's blood gives Lafayette the necessary energy and unlimited drive to dance the night away. He could be at that for quite some time. Eric just moves on with that typical look of disinterest and cold, joyless reaction.

I love Jess. She's unpredictable, and her behavior can be immature and born out of teenage angst. But there's that smile, the vulnerability, blunt honesty that isn't reined in or filtered. And dealing with her new death-life is gradual, frustrating, and demands patience. Bill might just need Sookie to help him be a proper parental figure, through advice from a woman's perspective. Although the Fellowship angle is my least favorite the accidental fantasy Jason has of Sarah with the beer bottle and ass shaking cracked me up. Luke mocking him about being Sarah's boytoy might have merit. Andy's alcoholic decline is documented with the sheriff taking his badge and efforts to get wasted at Merlotte's denied. Considered a loser and no cop job to give his life meaning, Andy is a pitiful shell. Dearborne cracking wise about the type of animal attacking the victim doesn't exactly go over well with his female African-American deputy!

It's sad, when a mother has to speak the words that condemn her own son. But I couldn't allow them to believe that I would commit murder. They'll put him away now, as I should have years ago. He was always bad, and in the end he intended to tell them I killed those girls and that man... as if I could do anything but just sit and stare, like one of his stuffed birds. They know I can't move a finger, and I won't. I'll just sit here and be quiet, just in case they do... suspect me. They're probably watching me. Well, let them. Let them see what kind of a person I am. I'm not even going to swat that fly. I hope they are watching... they'll see. They'll see and they'll know, and they'll say, "Why, she wouldn't even harm a fly..."

I think there is something about the American dream, the sort of Disneyesque dream, if you will, of the beautifully trimmed front lawn, the white picket fence, mom and dad and their happy children, God-fearing and doing good whenever they can, and the flip side of it, the kind of anger and the sense of outrage that comes from discovering that that's not the truth of the matter, that gives American horror films, in some ways, kind of an additional rage.

Doctor Gogol: Did you ever hear of Galatea?

Lavin - Waxworks Proprietor: Gala - who? Not wanting a statue of him, are you?

Doctor Gogol: I don't want a statue of Galatea. You see, she was a statue herself. Pygmalion formed her. Out of marble, not wax. And then she came to life in his arms.

Lavin - Waxworks Proprietor: [calling to his assistant] Start the motor, Henry. There's queer people on the streets of Montmartre at this time of night.

Doctor Gogol: [handing him his card] Here, a hundred francs if you deliver the statue to my house.

Lavin - Waxworks Proprietor: [reading card] It's a go, Dr. Go... gol. First thing in the morning.
