Recap 6.6 True Blood “Don’t You Feel Me”

By  |  101 Comments

Jason: “Could you define ‘copulation’?”

You know, I’m liking Willa a whole heck of a lot. Is that how I’m supposed to feel about Warlow?

Because this whole Sookie/Warlow romance is doing nothing for me, and it’s not just because it feels like she’s cheating on Bill and/or Eric. Warlow waited thousands of years for her? Boo freaking hoo! Am I just too emotionally attached to the original book characters? Please tell me, you guys, if you’re all feeling it? (“Don’t You Feel Me?”) I’m going with no.

Why did she have to tie him up? If she decides to become his fairy vampire bride, and it looks like she just did, will they have to tie each other up every night? (I’ll give Anna Paquin this — she looks absolutely amazing for a woman who just gave birth to twins. Go, Anna.) Warlow did save Sookie from her father’s ghost, and he did it without killing Lafayette. So points to Warlow for that.

I spent most of the Sookie/Warlow scenes wishing we’d get back to the Vamp Camp; that was the best part of the episode. See, I knew Eric and Pam wouldn’t turn on each other; they’ve just been too close for too long, and the way they turned the tables on their captors was satisfying. Willa confronting her father and demanding to be incarcerated with the other vamps in genpop was also very cool. And Eric is great undercover; it’s one of my favorite things in the series. (Maybe it’s Skarsgard doing an American accent.) I’m not a huge Nora fan, but I like her enough that I hope this isn’t the end for her. And I thought the reveal that the Governor’s bottling plant is making poisonous True Blood was clever, and it made a lot of sense.

Bill hasn’t been doing much for me for quite awhile, so I’m happy to report that I loved him daywalking into the Governor’s yard and taking out the brownshirts with his mad Lilith telekinesis skills. And tearing the Governor’s head off. That’s the most I’ve liked Bill in a looong time.

And for some reason, I loved every single second with Jason Stackhouse in it. When did he become one of my favorite characters? I loved the way he fast tracked himself into the LAVTF, and I loved the casual, confident way he blackmailed Sarah Newlin. (Too bad it didn’t work.) I also liked the vampire character James, who showed honor and strength by refusing to have sex with Jessica even under torture and with her permission. I hope we see more of him.

I don’t have a lot to say about the shifters and weres this week. Again. We all knew Emma would end up with her grandmother because it was the only thing they could do with the character, and I’m glad that Martha decided Emma was way more important than Pack, because she is. I also liked that Sam didn’t lie to Emma and say that he’d see her again. But why is Alcide still in the cast if he’s just going to be a jerk? He may have let Sam go, but it was with a “stay out of Bon Temps or die” warning. Will that work? Can’t Sam turn into an elephant and stomp a werewolf to death if he has to?

Finally, I’m sad to report that while the actors did a fine job and I liked the framing of the death scene next to the dumpster (a great way of illustrating that he threw his life away), Terry Bellefleur’s death should have had more of an effect on me. It’s like they decided to kill off a character for the sake of killing off a character, which we all know is the lazy road to drama. At least Terry died happy. Maybe someone should have explored vampire glamouring hypnotherapy a long time ago.

Bits and pieces:

— When Sookie’s father left Lafayette’s body, they did the black smoke thing they do on Supernatural.

— Alcide said “Stay” to his father as if he were a bad puppy.

— I’m still confused about the “rules” of that antechamber to Faerie. Is time passing quickly while they’re there, or is that just when they get to the other side?

— Andy’s daughter now has a name: Adilyn… Braylin, Charlene, Danika. (I’m guessing at the spelling.) I guess the other three really are dead, and Jessica did kill them. I was hoping they’d backtrack on that.

— The Vamp Camp’s shrink (Pruitt Taylor Vince) has a thing for Pam. That made me smile.

— What’s in the safety deposit box?

Quotes, and this episode wasn’t as quotable as usual, so sorry, it’s short:

Lafayette: “You’re acting real strange. Even for Terry.”

Eric: “Well done, baby vampire.”

Willa: “And Tara. And her friend Jessica.”
Eric: “I guess.”

I’m still not feeling this season. What did you all think?

    So many things I can’t understand…

    1)How the he** Sookie knew how to teleport herslef and Ben to another dimension??!!!!
    2) The cage they had Eric wasn’t made of silver, he was touching it without getting burnt. His handcuffs the same. How can that cage keep a millennium old vamp???!!! It should have big bars like Bill has in his basement and of course made of silver… The same for Nora, she is almost 600y.old and she was immobilized by some belts… Unless they had them starving. But Eric is prisoned only one night, can’t be that… Oh and then 2 days old Willa was able to rip a human hand?! NO! I can’t bare this!
    3) Truman didn’t answer where is the room, why Bill killed him?
    4) What Willa did to that guard to let her out, attack that scientist and let Eric out too? She glamoured him?! I thought Willa doesn’t know how to do that yet plus the guards must wear anti-glamouring lenses! I can’t think of any else way to make him do something so extreme. I could swallow if he just let her out, if they had a personal moment, but not this, attacking the scientist, letting 3 vamps out…
    5) What Sookie and Ben did was real? How she came up with this and how she bit him with that ease and why they were inside a ball of energy when they were… ehm, you know…
    6) Governor’s death was so unfitting, I was expecting something much bigger.

    For me, this was the worst episode of the season yet. Especially for (2) it is undeniable that unrealism (even for a supernatural series) and contradictions were too much and spilled all over the place!

    I can’t wait for the next episode of course. I think Nora will die and Eric will go fringed out there to kill some innocents and drink to forget just like we watched with that comic-con trailer, LOL! I won’t like that either, I like Nora.

    Peace out, fellow Trubies.

      PS. I think Jesicca finally found her true love. He was so good to her. That scene were they were burning him down and he finally popped his fangs and hissed was so cute and sad at the same time. Go Jess!

      You keep using the word ‘fringed’ and I don’t know what that means. Could you explain what you mean when you say that?

      I’m sorry you didn’t like the episode. Personally I think it was a very good episode – again. You didn’t mention anything about Terry’s death and the scene between him and Arlene. Nothing about Willa’s confrontation with her father?

      • BillieDoux

        July 22, 2013 at 12:07 am

        I wrote an entire paragraph about Terry’s death. And I did mention Willa’s confrontation with her father — I thought it was quite cool.

        I didn’t use the word “fringed”. Did you mean someone else?

        Fringe is a term used in many vampire novels and movies, I am surprised you are not familiar with. Is like an amok and happens when vamps are starving or getting furious because of an event. They basically succumb to their inner beast, killing and feeding on anyone around. That I watched Eric doing at Comic-Con trailer and that makes me believe that Nora will definitely die. For me the best episode of this season yet is 4. Thanks for hosting and for your answers below! ๐Ÿ™‚

          “Fringe is a term used in many vampire novels and movies, I am surprised you are not familiar with. ”
          It really is no surprise that I would never have heard of the term. I have seen a number of vampire movies and read many books involving vampires and never once has that term come up – ever. Not even in books involving Dracula. ๐Ÿ™‚

            I’ve never heard it either – not in Vampire Diaries, Sookie novels, Dracula, Twilight, Interview with a Vampire, Underworld, Being Human …lol I’m obsessed with Vampire stories!!

            And I agree that Nora will likely die….her character doesn’t have much to do as this season progresses.That will be sad for Eric. Although ………maybe the scientist that Bill has in his home will be able to use her infected blood to reverse-engineer a cure before the infection becomes wide-spread to other vampires. Then, at the end of the season when we’re thinking that the infected True Blood will kill off all of the vampires, the cure will be revealed.

        The comment about Sam just turning into an elephant had me laughing! I thought the same exact thing last night, until I realized that it would be too hard to make that look real! Maybe he could turn into a lion like in the books?

        I loved this episode! Its honestly my favorite out of the last few seasons. I just love that they are going back to the roots of the story, its much more enjoyable than all the authority/ifrit crap!

    • Mel

      July 22, 2013 at 12:08 am

      1. She’s done it before, at the end of season 3.
      2. There must be a reason they didn’t make the cages out of silver. Perhaps a controlled study? In other words, they want vamps to be in peak condition before performing experiments, a la the Nazis?
      3. Bill lost his temper and killed Truman on impulse. He’ll figure out where the room is later. (BTW, the circle of guards shooting each other was terrible yet cool.)
      4. Willa knew what glamouring was already, Tara just reminded her that she had that power. Tara also told her to rip the guard’s contacts out if she had to (using her vampire speed, maybe?).
      5. I don’t think that scene was real. It’s total wish fulfillment for Warlow, and totally out of character for Sookie. Plus it employed that blurry filter we’ve seen used when Bill was in a trance.
      6. Another Big Bad killed mid-season. I sense a pattern…

      I thought this episode was fantastic. Moving, exciting, funny (Jason!), terrifying.

        Mel I am with you on Sookie and Warlow …I just can’t imagine or hope Sookie would call herself a danger whore and do a blood bond with Warlow it goes sgainst what they have written her character as someone that has to be in love with the person she makes love to…..this scene didn’t seem right to me …we will see if it was real or not. Terry getting killed was sad but if he was so unhappy to committ suicide and leave Arlene and the kids by themselves then its too bad. Billith finally did something I could back him on killing Burrell was good . Sarah Newlin will be worst than Burrell ever was. I am glad Andy gave his daughters a name finally. Willa was cool and Eric was great even though I feel bad for Nora probably dying next episode

      1) Claudine took Sookie there, she knows the place, and combining her and Warlow’s light gave them access. It’s a refugee, so it would make sense Claudine told her how to reach it back in the days when she was around.
      2) We never saw the guard taking Eric’s cuffs off, so he might be burned underneath. As for Nora (and the rest of all the Vampires) Burell had them starving. Remember when Tara and Jess were in Gen Pop and those tiny bottles were handed out? Nora has been there a while, she could have been subjected to starvation, torture, all kinds of “methods” that weakened her enough.
      3) It became clear that Burrell would not cooperate, and time’s running out. Bill couldn’t allow the Gov to live on and warn the LAVTF, but he’s at the mansion now, has access to Burrell’s files, he has the means to find out where this facility is. And maybe he doesn’t have to.
      4) Tara told Willa to rip the guards lenses out, it was the same guard who showed Willa to her cell and told her how to get on his good side. So the thing thta doesn’t make sense is how she knew how to glamour someone, she was never told.
      5) I’m curious about that light as well, maybe that’s supposed to tell us they are meant for each other. Or, Sookie’s feelings for him are Warlow’s salvation. You know, the whole “love conquers all” theme, like kissing the princess awake after a long sleep. Personally I would like that to happen, no daywalking for the Vampires (they belong to the night for me), redemption (or a second chance) for Warlow. I don’t feel them – yet – but who knows?

      I have to agree with Billie in everything. I’m glad Sam made the right choice and had Martha promise to leave the pack. Good thing Martha agreed, too.
      It was disappointing to me how Terry was offed, it fits the story, but I think he deserved better.
      And I like James, if you think about how this could translate into real life, there’s quiet some message in there.

    I am loving Sookie and Ben/Warlow. It seems clear that final goodbyes have been said to Eric and Bill, and Sookie obviously loves her vampires, so I like one who might actually make her happy. I also like the idea of Eric and Willa. I think Bill will end up like he started – alone. I am very interested to see how it ultimately ends for him.

  3. Tracy

    July 21, 2013 at 11:06 pm

    I also agree that Vamp Camp is very frustrating, but I judt try to go with it. Lol. I too feel that the vamps could easily overpower everyone there, but I am giving the writers a pass. I think they are trying really hard to clean up the mess of last season and I like where they are going for the most part.

    • Vampiremaniac

      July 21, 2013 at 11:15 pm

      Well, only the methods of keeping Nora and Eric immobilized were unrealistic. Oh, and they really should made the windows in the Examination Room out of silver. Eric and Pam wouldn’t touch them. Of course, some UV lights on the roof would be great and that thing in the center of the room… Well, I hope it emits silver oxide… Indeed this season is a hundred times better than the previous one but this Camp is main part of this season, they should make it more realistic… Oh well… We will have our final reviews when the season reach its finale.

    Hi, guess I’m in minority? But I really like warlow and Sookie together. Call me a hopeless romantic, but there is something about an ancient vampire,farie,prince with a lot of subdued power, and a misfit complex who has been waiting for thousands of years just to be with you… Hope he doesn’t turn out to be a selfish, power grabbing db like some of the other men in her life

    • Sandra Louis White

      July 22, 2013 at 3:32 am

      Nope! I’m right on board with you!…. frankly a little shocked so many can’t just go along for the Sookie & Warlow ride. In a show where the bulk of is pretty visceral, i dunno it’s kinda nice…. I love this part & I think they have great chemistry…I will say though- their big sex scene could have been a little softer & I fear it’s been played out this way to show us she’s not totally going for it with the best reasons in mind, but hey, that’s this show. Let’s have like one romance here & besides that…he loves her sooooooo much. Awwwwww.

      • Anja R

        July 23, 2013 at 7:19 pm

        I hope somehow the fact that the sex WASN’T innocent/ sweet like when she was with Bill or Eric for the first time means that the opposite of those outcomes will happen: She’ll be with a guy who can have a stable relationship with her and doesn’t use her in any way…They could actually have a lasting relationship.

        I loved when she was with Eric (I can’t believe I would actually want her to be with anyone but him – never thought I’d vote for her and anyone else!), but it seems like he has too much going on to devote enough of himself to her.

        Warlow – after we get past this Billith nonsense – is very committed to her, and strong enough to protect her from pretty much anything. And she could have the best of both worlds!! Vampire AND Fairy!

    • Toni

      July 22, 2013 at 9:05 am

      Maybe so but that vampire really has no power because Bill controls him ultimately controlling Sookie so as far as I’m concerned she deserves everything she gets as the series evolves. She left Eric because she couldn’t accept him and hops on the next big bad who has lived longer than Eric and has done far worse than he has. Everyone is saying yay!!! for Sookie and Warlow she finally gets her happy ever after now look at her her man is controlled by Bill that ultimately controls her.

    July 21, 2013 at 11:38 pm

    I think this season still has a lot to offer and I love it all (excelt vamp camp its getting old fast) but I’m almost certain now that Ben/Warlow really means Sookie no harm but she likes what she likes and its never a good thing. So we’ll see how long this lasts.

  7. Tracy

    July 21, 2013 at 11:44 pm

    I have to admit that Terry’s actual death scene was a lot less moving than I expected. I cried at Tommy’s death and I thought he was a little s***. Lol. I was more sad with the moments leading up to Terry’s death, knowing it was coming. I wonder if Arlene is going to go coo-coo now?

    • Liz

      July 22, 2013 at 12:05 am

      I think it was more a sweet send off for Terry than a moving one, although I was moved to tears. Especially when Arlene was singing to him through her tears.

      • Madeleine

        July 22, 2013 at 12:25 am

        Terry’s whole story is – was – a very moving one. And we gotta give it to Arlene, who wanted him to be happy so badly she even overcame her rejection towards Vampires. That’s not a small step for her.

    • Traci West

      July 22, 2013 at 1:07 pm

      I loved that scene where Arlene is singing to Terry and cradling him as he dies. She was very noble, not freaking out and hysterical. I’m betting that along with things like his will, the safety deposit box will have a letter from Terry to Arlene, explaining the deal Terry made with Justin to kill him, and why he did it. When it comes right down to it, Terry was a fundamentally decent human being, with a great deal of conscience. It’s a terrible thing when men of conscience are forced by war to do things completely contrary to their nature. His war experiences were bad enough; being forced to kill Patrick was the last straw. He simply could not live with it.

  8. Rina

    July 21, 2013 at 11:48 pm

    Terry’s death was so ironic and unnecessary, but I guess the fans got what they have been wanting for years–a meaningful death of a principal character. GoT, eat your heart out.

    • Jay

      July 22, 2013 at 12:56 am

      I still will never understand the desire for characters to die. If it happens, fine… but clamoring for death to make things “matter” just seems foolish and phony and at times simply poor writing. I hope that the writers don’t continue to bow to random fan demand and focus on writing a compelling story without being influenced.

      • Jon

        July 22, 2013 at 1:46 am

        Nearly every single episode, we close out with someone on the brink of death, only to have them bounce back in the first two seconds of the next episode. We keep getting told that this vampie war matters, but why? It’s obvious that no one we care about is going to get hurt. There are no stakes. Everyone DOES live forever. That’s why we need a death; to remind us that we do have a reason to be afraid of the war, to be afraid of the villains. Also, a death can be used to push along convincing character developments, something that True Blood struggles at. We don’t want a death because it would be cool or shocking, we need a death because its important for us as an audience to realize thAt there is a lot hanging on the war.

      I hope by “GoT” you’re not referring to Game of Thrones. While Terry was my favorite character on the show and I love him, his death had zero meaning and felt more like it was done out of desperation from the writers hoping to write a shocking death into this season. On Game of Thrones, death of main characters have purpose whether to drive the story forward in a meaningful way (ie Ned Stark), or to show the true nature of another character. If Terry’s death is the big death they’ve been alluding too for this season, I’m highly disappointed. I never felt he was a main character, but an awesome supporting character. Jason, for instance, would’ve been not only shocking, but it would have been HUGE. It also would’ve made a lot more sense considering his actions lately, AND the fact that he grounds Sookie, and how greatly his death would’ve affected her and mainly of the main cast. So, I don’t think even as sad as Terry’s death was really touches Game of Thrones. I think the “death” that might have come close was Bill last season, now THAT was shocking as crazy as hell lol

      • Liz

        July 22, 2013 at 10:12 am

        I don’t think we were supposed to be shocked by Terry’s death as much as saddened. Reports from cast members and showrunners have said that this death was going to be a very bittersweet sendoff for this character and I believe that’s exactly what we got.

        I also feel that Terry’s story had run its course, much like Hoyt’s did. And as someone else said here this could be a catalyst for a character change in Arlene. We don’t know what the fallout from Terry’s death will bring just yet, so best to reserve judgement on whether or not Terry’s death was senseless.

          Totally agree! Although I didn’t have the emotions I thought I would seeing a major character die, I am hopeful that this will usher in some major dynamic changes for Arlene….she did a great job in that touching to watch..I will miss wacky Terry, but his storyline(s) had run its course..RIP Terry

    I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m loving this season. I haven’t enjoyed True Blood this much since season 2. Last season was all over the place, with too many storylines. I like the narrowed focus, even though it seems like the shifter/were story is completely separated (for now?).

    I’m also team Warlow. I think he seems like he could be a really good partner for Sookie. There’s definitely no going back with Bill. I just can’t see how that relationship could ever be mended. I used to be entirely team Eric, but I guess I’m a sucker for Warlow. Maybe it’s his looks, maybe it’s the accent, but there is something about his promise to be together with Sookie forever and, like Buckspa said, there is also definitely something about the power of an ancient vampire. I heard an interview with Rob Kazinsky where he said that we’re still going to see his character do a lot of bad stuff, but I really hope it doesn’t make his character irredeemable.

      But Bill controls Warlow so therefore he controls Sookie so Yay!!!!! for Sookie and Warlow.

      • Liz

        July 22, 2013 at 9:59 am

        Bill does not control Warlow and if you recall, he broke ties with Sookie completely. As Warlow’s maker Lilith can compel Warlow to do things but it has nothing to do with Sookie.

        • SouthernGirl306

          July 22, 2013 at 10:49 am

          If Bill broke ties with Sookie – how did he sense she was in danger and hence sent Warlow to her rescue? That part didn’t make sense..or is it that once you’ve a vampire’s blood they are connected to you forever? If so, why didn’t Eric feel the danger she was in?

          • Madeleine

            July 22, 2013 at 11:22 am

            At the beginning of this season Sookie rejected Eric’s offer to give her money so she could move away. She said it would be pointless since she’d had a lot of Bill’s blood and he coiuld find her. Sounds to me like the blood bond lasts. Maybe Eric is just too far away, and he has a ton of other problems.

        • Toni

          July 22, 2013 at 11:46 am

          Yes he does Liz he gave him a maker command at Sookie’s house and sent him to save Sookie when Sookie was in danger, that is control. Warlow couldn’t even feel Sookie in trouble so how did he find her and how did he know her parents plan on the bridge unless it was his plan to get rid of her parents all along. Niall said Sookie carries the Fae now wouldn’t that be enough reason for a vampire to want to get their hooks into her. Warlow’s village was small and Niall said he’s been obsessing over their family for centuries…..what if Ben was never turned who would have been his intended and why didn’t he go after that person instead of entering a contract for a small child. Claudine and Claudette was of the royal blood

          • Liz

            July 22, 2013 at 12:11 pm

            Bill does not have complete control over Warlow. You just proved what I said – that Bill can command Warlow to do things but he does not have complete control.

  10. Eva

    July 21, 2013 at 11:54 pm

    Okay writers why throw Sookie onto Ben/Warlow so soon? I didn’t like that all I kept thinking was is he dreaming? I loved the rest of the episode minus that scene and the one with Alcide threatening Sam.

  11. Phoenison

    This episode made me love this season. Finally, people were taking action. Bill finally did what I’ve been waiting for all these weeks. He ran up on that Governor and when he ripped his head off, I literally did a war cry and clapped in my living room. My neighbors probably think I’m a freak but they already think that since someone decided to try and steal one of my Fort Troff orders and returned it with a “Sorry” note (guess they didn’t like the naked men in gas masks and slings on the pamphlets).
    Ya know, I thought I didn’t want Sookie to turn but this is its own universe and a Fae-pyre spin for her could be cool. I mean, it’s not something we’ve seen in movie-after-movie, it’s something new and pretty cool.
    LOL @ the goofs pointed out in your article. I can believe that Willa had a natural knack for glamoring, but how did she glamor a soldier who definitely would’ve been wearing the glamor-free contact lenses. And spot-on regarding Eric’s cage. The security measures are not as amped-up as they seemed before.
    I do feel there was a bit of sloppiness or lack of perfectionism this season since Alan Ball left, but they’ll get it together, I think. This episode restored the hope I had temporarily lost during the episode from 2 weeks ago.

    Andy’s daughter’s name is Adilyn-Braelyn-Charlaine-Danika. The Charlaine is for Charlaine Harris. ๐Ÿ™‚

    How did the “beheadingism” quote not make the list?!

    I’m loving this season (aside from the shifter/were non-story)! It feels like we’re getting to know our characters, we’re seeing some real character development, the storylines are relatively contained, and there’s enough mystery to keep us guessing. Considering some of the outlandish storylines they had to work with coming into the season, I’ve been very pleased with how grounded this season feels for the most part.

    Tis episode was okay for me. I mean there were some things that was answered like what gov Burrell was planning for the trueblood by spiking it with hepitas b. I knew that Pam and Eric wasn’t going to fight each other. Sure Pam might have been hurt when Eric release her but they have too much close of a bond as champions to let one person be turn by him get in the way with that.

    Terry’s death didn’t quite faze me because he’s sort of basically like a minor character and you really don’t get close to them as you do with the main characters but I’m going to miss ya terry.

    The reason why sookie was able to teleport to a fairy dimission was because she and warlow are fae even though they’re not full blooded its still able to work whether you’re full fae or not.

    Now the question is will sookie became a fairy vampire or just remind a human fae until her light goes out. Won’t know until probably the end .

    I do like the show, and I am a faithful viewer. However, I’m getting irritated by the refusal of the writers to address certain relationships. I’m getting tired of the writers misunderstanding their own characters. And I’m very pissed off that a good character has been wasted and was killed for no reason.

    Terry was a good character. He was funny, and complex, and never utilized in the right ways. He was constantly relegated to the story arcs that no one really wanted to see, and then was killed off in the most inane and pointless way imaginable. There was no emotional depth to it, there was no reason for it. It was a perfect example of a show going, “see we kill off characters!” I got more upset over Tommy’s death, who had a far better end than Terry, and I didn’t even like Tommy very much.


    Okay, can someone please explain to me why they are keeping one of the most obvious couples apart. Why the writers have put them together for one scene in this entire season? Why they are pushing this Warlow crap down our throats and expecting us to root for it. Yes I’m talking about Sookie and Eric. We got maybe half a season, and that’s it. Despite the chemistry between the actors, and the fans interest in that relationship, you would think it would be an obvious choice. Yet ziltch. One freaking scene.

    Rant over. As for this episode. I loved that we got some cool Bill stuff. I really liked the vampire that refused to sleep with Jessica. I thought the scene where Andy named his daughter finally was sweet. I love Willa, she’s a great addition to Eric’s family. Actually the vamp camp may be a touch tedious in how they are doing the vampire rules (I totally agree Eric and Nora would have torn that room apart before she was injected), but the interactions between the vamps has been great. I’m SOOO glad that we didn’t have Pam and Eric go at it, I would’ve stopped watching if Eric killed Pam or vise versa.

    I kind want to see Sarah Newlin get turned, she’d be a fun vamp or a totally bat-crap crazy one. Either way it would be an improvement. Alcide has basically lost me. I was starting to like him, and now he’s just a jerk. They could get rid of the wolf plot entirely and I don’t think it would affect the show at all.

      I agree with you on all fronts of the Sookie and Eric relationship she never even gave it a chance. Warlow has done far more things worse than Eric and he didn’t even have to work for the Whoha. I am an avid fan because like many love Sookie and Eric together. Warlow wanting Sookie to feel sorry for him is pathetic and oh by the way Bill controls him how crazy is that. The one man she is trying to get away from is controlling her soon to be baby daddy. She will have her HEA I guess she can only work at Merlottes during the night so someone can ensure her new man doesn’t kill her because he is older than Eric and need to feed every night.

      July 22, 2013 at 10:59 am

      So glad you brought up that point – Eric and Sookie are a major couple in the books and the writers have decided to go down a path that keeps them apart..really disappointed in that..there is so much potential to make them into a power couple on the show…fingers crossed they eventually find their way back to that…I am not opposed to Warlow/Sookie I must admit there is chemistry..but deep inside I’m still rooting for a Sookie/Eric reprise..

    Loved this episode!! I still do not trust Warlow, we have to see this “dark” side of him still. Also need to know why he killed off all those fairies at the club and as to why he thru Nial into another dimension. I got teary eyed over the Sam and Emma scene, also Arlene singing to Terry as he died. Hard to believe only 4 episodes left and I was hoping for some Sookie and Eric reunion but that does not seem to be the case or could it still happen????

  16. Timiri

    July 22, 2013 at 1:44 am

    I am sure the last scene with Sookie and Warlow was a dream or some kind of vision. She had fangs (we could hear them “coming out” when was biting Warlow) and she healed her neck after Warlow had bitten her. But if she trully was a vampire, we would have seen her being turned, I guess.
    So I think it’s a dream.

    • Mel

      July 22, 2013 at 7:01 am

      Oh yeah, the neck healing bit! I meant to mention that as a clue and forgot. Good call, Timiri.

    • Toni

      July 22, 2013 at 9:20 am

      I am getting ready to watch again I didn’t hear any fangs popping out all I saw her do was the deed with Bill’s new progeny that oh by the way controls Warlow and ultimately controls Sookie

      • Madeleine

        July 22, 2013 at 11:28 am

        I didn’t hear or see any fangs on Sook either. And of course her neck healed, she just had Vampire blood. Even with human teeth it’s not so hard to break the skin and have some blood flowing.

      • SouthernGirl306

        July 22, 2013 at 11:31 am

        I didn’t hear fangs but I did notice how easily she bit his neck AND how quickly her neck healed…initially I thought it was because she had just had his blood..but she still wouldn’t heal that quickly…Great catch! I definitely think it was a dream sequence..

        • Nikki

          July 22, 2013 at 11:52 am

          She could heal that quickly actually. It was just her neck that was injured and she did ingest an ancient vamp’s blood. Not sure about the dream sequence. Never saw 2 fairies have sex before. That fairie ball might happen if 2 fairies have sex. Hopefully it will be explained next episode but from the previews it doesn’t look like it was a dream.

        • Anja R

          July 24, 2013 at 4:44 pm

          It wasn’t surprising that she healed that quickly. Remember in season 3 when she and Bill were in the shower after an intense make-up session, and he simply bit his finger to draw blood, applied it to the fang marks on her neck, and she healed within seconds?

          I don’t think it was a dream sequence either (please don’t be a dream lol!!)- the previews show Bill showing up and taking Warlow back with him to the non-faerie (“human”) dimension. Bill is actually becoming a hilarious villian – “Jessica! …How close to killing you did I come?!” As if his Lillith super-summoning power is an experiment gone wrong on Benlow.

          • Mel

            July 24, 2013 at 5:19 pm

            Right, but that’s the application of vamp blood directly to the wound, which we’ve seen lots of times on the show. This was Sookie drinking vamp blood, then healing quickly. That seemed more like Warlow’s dream of them being able to feed from each other, exclusively, and not harm others.

          • Anja R

            July 25, 2013 at 2:51 pm

            Mel – Interesting…I didn’t think of there being a difference. Have you seen the comic con 2013 promo? There’s a clip there that shows Sookie wearing the same clothes she had on, except she’s standing and looking up (as if she were still “in the position”, enjoying herself at the close of the scene), and it is night time.

            Do you think they really did do all of that while in the “fairy-land,” but the ultimate flash of light between them zapped them back to the real world? This would explain why she is just standing there in the graveyard, looking dazed, at night.

          • Mel

            July 25, 2013 at 3:08 pm

            Uh, yeah, I was AT Comic Con and saw the promo there. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Sookie wasn’t wearing any clothes while doing the deed with Warlow, so I’m not sure you’re making the right connection between those two scenes. I’m still pretty confident that the sex scene was Warlow’s fantasy.

            Sookie looking dazed upon returning to Bon Temps made me think someone called her back, possibly Lafayette, because of Terry’s death. We see her preparing to attend/speak at his funeral in that same promo.

      July 22, 2013 at 4:44 pm

      Am I imagining this, but isn’t Warlow Sookies great grandfather. Last week In the flashback you heard Warlows wife telling Nyall to stay in the tent when Warlow attacked them. When Warlow got changed his wife was nearly due. So I agree on the dream thing otherwise isn’t this incest?

      • Liz

        July 22, 2013 at 5:57 pm

        Warlow and Sookie are not related. Warlow is not Sookie’s great-grandfather.

      • Mel

        July 22, 2013 at 8:43 pm

        That wasn’t Warlow’s wife. She’s just a villager who Warlow greeted when he visited in the first flashback.

    • Traci West

      July 23, 2013 at 3:13 pm

      We did learn one interesting thing in this episode; Warlow believes that if he can create another fae-vampire hybrid, they would be able to feed off each other and not have to hurt people. (Personally, I think this is like Marxism; works in theory, not in practice!)

      I couldn’t make heads or tails out of that last sequence between Sookie and Warlow, but I do know this: there is not a chance in hell that Sookie has decided to give up, abide by the terms of the contract (which Warlow said he would destroy; maybe he’s growing up a little), and let Warlow turn her. Anna Paquin said at Comic-Con that Sookie was done being a doormat; her consent to the terms of the contract is completely contrary to what we’ve seen so far this season from her.

    It looks like we won’t see any Sookie/Eric reunion any time soon. Way to go Sookie-let out that demon-whore!Damn she looks good after giving birth to twins. I am still loving the Sookie/Benlow relationship and the last scene was just what I wanted to see. I thought it odd though that Bill sensed Sookie’s danger when LaLa was trying to drown her. I thought he told her she was dead to him. Maybe he is pushing Lillith out and is starting to become his old self again. Terry’s death was really predictable, at least he died happy. Who is going to run Merlotte’s if Sam has to stay out of town? As always can’t wait until next week…..

      I think when he said she was dead to him, he was pretty much lying to himself. It actually gave me hope that Bill was still there deep down in Billith. Also loving the Sookie/Benlow thing happening. (This is coming from Eric/Sookie book fan)

    Ooooh, after watching this 3 times… LOL… Willa mentions the contacts to Tara. Tara tells Willa to rip those f***ers out. Bases covered, at least for me… I have that head-ripping scene on repeat. I almost wanna print a poster out on a plotter.

    I loved this episode! Finding your reviews a bit negative Billie.. I can see your disappointed with this season.. I don’t mean that in a bad way either, were you happier with the books? I personally love the tv show much better.

    Loving the sookie/warlow hook up. I cried when Terry died! So sad! It still shocks me about Sookies parents and its good to see bill finally being useful. I think Nora’s a goner which is a pity.. And I can’t wait till Eric and Pam sort out their drama. As usual.. Can’t wait for the next episode!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m totally loving this season! Right from episode 1 action, action, action unlike last season which just dragged on and on before getting interesting. It’s about time that we see Bill do something other than hanging around in his dungeon/lab/basement. I was like “Hell yeah!” when he ripped the governor’s head off. Now if I can see something similar happen to Sarah Newlin…..So looking forward to the rest of the season!!

    Like the season soo far and the best part of it was the facility scenes . Beet Eric just stayed to find the one he needed to find ๐Ÿ™‚ . The recap was great as usual . One thing i dont gett is Sookie in the end of this ep . Seem to be so unlike her . Is it fairy magic Warlow is pulling . Bet Eric wont like it , wonder if Eric and Sookie will have a fight between them about warlow this season . Pretty sure they will later on if Warlow dont die . Gess we have to wait and see .

    July 22, 2013 at 9:36 am

    I think Terry’s death was important to allow Arlene to become more enraged with hate for Sookie, vamps and shifters and anything else different. She’s been so much more tolerant lately, and I think Terry’s death will put a lid on it.

    • Traci West

      July 23, 2013 at 3:17 pm

      That wouldn’t make any sense, since Terry was shot with a gun in daylight, no supernaturals involved. It is a terrible irony that the assassination happened anyway, after Arlene and Holly had Terry glamored to forget the war, but I don’t see how it would somehow turn Arlene into an anti-supernatural bigot.

    Oh man, I think you are the only one not feeling this season, for good or bad it has been more entertaining that the past two. Jason is awesome, Sara too, Warlow is not only a very interesting character but also RK is gorgeous, Sookie is finally freeing herself and following her instincts, I think this season it is great.

  24. Jesse

    July 22, 2013 at 9:57 am

    I have been enjoying this season and I like the Sookie/Warlow plot.
    I can’t help but wonder about the Wolf Storyline. The actor (Joe) that plays Alcide mentioned during Comic Con that a lot of scenes with him and Robert Patrick that were shot ended up getting cut out of the episodes. I bet the expanded scenes would explain this whole mess a little better.
    I am glad someone finally made Sam see reason regarding Emma. I would imagine the only reason there wasn’t an Amber Alert over Emma is the pack is doing their best to stay away from the police atm. I am also glad it was finally mentioned that it looked like Sam used the Activists trying to expose the pack as an intentional distraction to kidnap Emma.
    The romance I haven’t been interested in has been the Sam/Nicole one. Way too soon after Luna. Luna deserved more grieving not a quick replacement.
    I had lost interest in Bill since it was shown that he could command Warlow. I had assumed Warlow would have been Bill’s rival this season cause I didn’t see anyone else able to do it.
    I did like the Governor dropping Steve’s name to Eric prior to poisoning Nora. I hope Eric chains Steve to a stake to await the sun and glamours Sarah into making it with Jason as Steve’s only entertainment until the sun rises.

    I think the Sookie and Benlow scene should’ve been in 6.5. She seemed to be f*cking some pain away.

    Poor Terry had a few hours of happiness and then he bought the farm. I really hope Terry’s safe deposit box key will lead to some money that Arlene can put away for the kids’ college fund and hopefully some Lafayette can use to buy Sam out of Merlotte’s so Sam can boogie on out of Bon Temps before the wolf pack comes sniffing around for him. I wonder if Lafayette would call it LaLa’s.

    I’m glad Martha quit the pack. That pack has cost her almost her entire biological family. That should have been a big red flag. If she needs some advice on how to be a lone wolf she can always ask Papa Jackson.

    It was nice to see a small speck of the old Alcide when he let Sam go, though under ultimatum to get outta town or die.

    I’m a bit perplexed by Bill feeling Sookie’s peril and letting Benlow save her, despite the whole “You are dead to me, Sookie Stackhouse” thing. I’m curious to know if Lillith has any idea of Benlow’s grand plan to turn Sookie into a Fae/Vamp and how Bill would feel about it if he knew. I can see it from both perspectives: On one hand, it would be one more Fae/Vamp hybrid to drain for vampire kind. On the other hand, I don’t think Bill would really wish becoming a vampire on anyone, given the angst he has been through over the last two hundred years.

    So I’m guessing Nora is going to be fatality number two given the fact that she’s been infected with HepV…or maybe Nora is the red herring from the writers and the next fatality will shock and awe us. This Governor Burrell is truly a monster.

    Sarah just peeves me because after all that tall talk to Steve Newlin about how she’s her own woman, she is once again hanging onto the coat tails of a man. Argh! Guess she’ll have to fledge now that Burrell has lost his head.

    I liked Tara taking Willa under her wing, like Jessica did for Tara when she was first turned. Hoping to see more character development on that front unless Willa ends up being fatality number two. Don’t imagine Pam is too thrilled at not being an only child anymore.

    Hope Jason and Jessica get out okay though Sarah will undoubtedly throw a monkey wrench or two into their escape plan.

      July 24, 2013 at 6:32 am

      You bring up an interesting point about the ramifications of Warlow turning Sookie. However, my question is: given that Sookie is mostly human, and her fae powers get weaker each time she uses them, would her fae powers be strong enough to survive the change? Don’t forget; Warlow was a full-blooded fae at the time he was turned. It could be that if Sookie were turned, she would simply be a conventional vampire.

  26. Anthony

    July 22, 2013 at 11:07 am

    I’m loving Sookie and Warlow I’ve always thought she shoulud end up with a faerie
    I seriously hope that he is not one of the major deaths I Dont think their Relationship developed too quickly at all they are linked Warlow is the reason for sookies attraction to vampires to begin with that much is clear and that bond was made stronger when she drank his blood and the pact was made flesh and
    he may have re charged her light

  27. Tracy

    July 22, 2013 at 11:08 am

    I don’t think they’ll get rid of Sam. At Comic Con, Buckner said his goal was to get the show back to vamps and humans in Bon Temps. The only places they ever really show in Bon Temps is Merlotte’s and the sheriff’s office. Sam is going to have to bring out the big guns to let the pack know he’s not going to run off with his tail between his legs.

    July 22, 2013 at 11:54 am

    Another great episode. I’m enjoying the Vamp Camp scenes! Those humans are pure evil! The scene with Jessica and James was almost to upsetting to watch. All the actors did an amazing job, and I’m so glad James refused to be a part of it. I REALLY hope Sarah is killed by Jason or Jess. I’m not the biggest Nora fan, but I don’t want her to die. I Can’t wait for next week; looks like Pam eats the shrink, and the vampires get some revenge.

  29. Marie

    July 22, 2013 at 12:43 pm

    This season, for me, has been the best writing since season one. I hope they’ve finally given up trying to make us care about new kinds of supernaturals, and are just looking at combining them now, because that has been the most dragging part of the whole series for me.

    This episode was great. Bill is starting to doubt his allegiance to Lillith, which is why he responded to Sookie’s peril and let out Warlow to save her; when he said she was dead to him, he was still in full Billith mode, and he seems to be coming back from that. They finally closed off the boring conflict over Emma, which was going nowhere. Terry’s death was sad, but he was sort of a superfluous character, and I’m looking forward to the writing narrowing back to the roots of the show. Jason is awesome lately. I’m stoked about James, too.

    I also find myself really digging the Sookie-Warlow thing. I didn’t at first, but he seems kind of perfect for her, and their relationship is really unique (not just because of the arranged marriage thing). If that last scene wasn’t a dream sequence, then it seems like Sookie is finally accepting her instincts and desires, which is a great evolution for her character. I kind of hope she turns. It would give the series an excellent twist for next season, especially since it might happen in another dimension and/or in everyone else’s absence and totally shock the other characters when she reemerges. (Also, when she bit him back, I understood it as her replenishing what he took, and that would’ve healed her bites.)

    The Eric/Nora scene didn’t exactly add up, considering their probable strength, but we also saw Bill at the very beginning of the series immobilized by some necklaces, so maybe there was silver around after all that we just couldn’t see; it might not take a lot of it to stay consistent, and we don’t know whether Eric was burned under the shackles (though they should’ve made it more apparent). I’ll be sad if Nora dies, and it looks like she might… But Eric takes her to Bill’s in the preview, and Bill has Takahashi, which might mean they can come up with a vaccine/anti-viral for Hep V.

    I want to see the vampires overtake camp, and I think they will next episode. There’s that alpha vampire in the female wing to develop, and Tara told us they could rip the contacts out to glamour the guards… With that, plus Bill and Eric’s efforts (and we see both of them back at Bill’s in the preview, so they must succeed to some degree), they seem to have a pretty solid setup for bringing it down.

    • Anja R

      July 24, 2013 at 3:30 pm

      Finally! Someone else who wants to see Sookie turn…It would be a great twist – and I think, like with Tara, give more dimension to her character. Plus, she needs all the physical strength and protection she can get, considering how often she’s in danger. Didn’t Warlow say that they would both be able to walk in the daylight if he turned her?

    Billie – for someone who’s not “feeling” this season, you can still write a mean review! Thanks for helping to make my Mondays a little more fun. I, for one, love this season – and the show has definitely improved, which is awesome. But even when the show was at its worst (second half of season 4, and the first 10 or so episodes of season 5), it’s still better than anything else on TV. So I guess I’m pretty forgiving in that regard. As long as they keep bringing back the show season after season, I am happy.

    Sigh, quite sad about Terry’s death. I agree that it seemed pointless. I thought for sure it was going to be either LaLa or Arlene – it just seemed too obvious that it would be Terry. But I guess we’ll have to see where the story goes from here – I certainly DO hope there’s a storyline that comes out of this.

    While I like the Warlow/Sookie storyline, I will be majorly pissed off if they wind up together. I agree with the others that they never gave the Eric/Sookie relationship a chance. It’s like Sookie used Eric when his memory was gone. And then when he got his memory back, she was like “sorry, I decided I don’t like you anymore”. Eric had evolved from the whole experience. Meanwhile Sookie just turned into a flaky biotch. Sigh, it’s not right.

    If this were the first guy she fell for on the show, maybe I’d feel differently about Warlow. I don’t care how easy on the eyes RK may be, it’s too hard for me to root for him. Especially when I know the hottest guy on the show still has a thing for her.

    July 22, 2013 at 2:49 pm

    I’m not feeling it with Warlow and Sookie either. Where Warlow is hot looking he just doesn’t have any chemistry with Sookie. I have to say that I was a bit surprised that Terry was the one to die, I guess I didn’t think the writers would follow through with the clues that were given in episode 5 and also it is kind of lame that it was finally thought of to glamour Terry. I’m also not feeling the were’s or Sam’s story line.

  33. Pam

    July 22, 2013 at 4:40 pm

    I really enjoying this season, last season was the only season I was sort of disappointed in. I think some how Sookie will be used as a pawn against Bill and Erik before the end of the season. Steve Newlin told a lot of the vampire secrets and he knows that Bill and Erik have a weakness towards Sookie.

  34. Vikingrl

    The other thing, I’m surprised about Bill walking in the sun and it not affecting him. He’s had Sookie’s blood before and was able to walk in the sun, but still “you burned, but not as fast”. So why hasn’t he started to burn? Just wondering.
    Sookie and Warlow seem a bit rushed to me, it doesn’t seem like a good flow, but we shall see. Can’t wait to see what happens with Steve and Sarah…
    In the spoilers don’t they talk about Eric having a fling? I thought so. Looking forward to them getting out of Vamp Camp and Eric taking down the tainted TB factory….

      The Japanese scientist said that Andy’s daughters’ blood disintegrate very fast. That’s why half-fae blood allows vamps to walk only for a short amount of time in the sun like Bill and Eric when they drank Sookie. Full fairies allow daywalking more time like when Eric drank Claudine, a full-fae. But Warlow is a full-fae-vampire hybrid. His blood doesn’t disintegrate at all because vamp blood is preserved even without refrigeration (remember Andy gave his remaining daughter vamp blood kept in a box in a closet. That’s why Warlow’s blood allow daywallking for long. That’s why Billith find him their salvation.

    The end of the ep with Soookie and warllow dont ad up to me . With the fast neck heling and Sookie acting like that , right !? Anyone think the fairy plane they went to is some persenal fairy plane all fairyยดs have or something . The plane they went to was the same fairy plane Sookie got to when Bill , Russell and Eric almost draind her season 3 . Cant wait to see the plot paying out .

    Been thinking a bit, I predict the warlow Sookie relationship will be a tragic love story, I def now think he will die before the end of this season, Sookie will be heartbroken (….maybe.. Be pregnant… :/ Eric, will swoop in, story continues next year. ..

        Oh please, for the love of all that’s good, don’t start a “Wookie” trend, I’m begging you. STAR WARS had a wookie, there are no wookies in Bon Temps.

    Was Terry the “major” character we were going to see die this season?? I didn’t consider him a major character. While sad, it certainly wasn’t unexpected.
    I’m not feeling the whole Sookie/Warlow thing. There’s no chemistry. Boring.
    I no longer like Alcide. He never takes his shirt off.
    Where is big, bad Eric?? Little confused as to why he is so whipped this season. There are a lot of inconsistencies this season.
    I was also disappointed that Niall is gone. In the books, the character was more beautiful, well-dressed & distinguished. On the screen, he looked like a bum. Actor was all wrong for the part. Nevertheless, I was hoping for more Niall.
    Hoping that the series moves along, getting bored with it all. I want the story back in Bon Temps. Miss the towns people.

      Yes, Terry was the major death. He’s been a part of the show from the beginning and the impact of his death will be felt by all of Bon Temps, bringing the town together in a way we haven’t seen in years. Thus, “major”.

      I’m sorry, Eric is “whipped”? Are we watching the same show? He’s been seething with rage all season, using all of his political and strategic knowledge in the war Burrell declared on the vampires, voluntarily going to Vamp Camp with Tara to rescue Pam, executing an awesome “escape” from the Eric vs. Pam death match Sarah Newlin set up… He’s been “big, bad Eric” from the start of this season, and I’m loving it!

    ok–so watched again and….maybe somebody already mentioned this, but, was Sookie referred to as the “blond tyrant?” When Bill was talking to Lilith she said, “the blond tyrant has your progeny” and then later Bill said it again. What does that mean?

    I LOVE this season so far.. I am a huge book fan and a huge TB fan and I’ve given up completely on the two ever resembling each other again and I’m okay with it. As much as I would love for more Eric-Sookie, I can live with it if it continues to simmer and tease us as long as whatever is happening makes sense for TB.

    I am getting a feeling that Sookie may be the vampire-race’s salvation.

      Actually – since I am obsessed with this episode, watched it almost 10 times again – she said “the tyrant has your progeny, the blond has your salvation”

      Tyrant = the heads of the vamp camp (governer and Sarah Newlin)
      Progeny = Jessica
      (i.e. Jessica is captured at the vamp camp)

      Blond = Sookie
      Salvation = Warlow

      (i.e. Warlow is the salvation for the vampires, but he is with Sookie at that moment.)

      Otherwise, I totally agree with you about being ok with the fact that the series doesn’t perfectly follow the books…I think it’s better actually; a little more cohesive, logical, and interesting. I really don’t want the series to end the way that the books did.

      And although I’ve been rooting for her and Eric ever since season 2, I really want her to be with Warlow now. It seems like it makes the most sense.

        Anja–thanks. I totally agree with you. I want them to be different too and I am so enjoying this season. The only thing I am sad about is Sam’s storyline. I love Sam’s character and how can he be unable to go back to Bon Temps. What’s happening with Alcide? No matter what happens, I always felt like Sookie had her core group of support which includes Sam and Alcide. I really hope that turns around.

          Poor Sam!! He’s been nothing but helpful throughout the series (killing the maenad, saving sookie from the pigs, rescuing Emma, etc).
          I don’t see Sookie ending up in a relationship with him as some suggest she should – they have more of a close family style bond at this point, and I think it would be awkward. Nor should he die…Just take more of a backseat supportive role again.

          And Alcide? WTF! He needs to calm down on his power-tripping…it’s too bad he couldn’t have used his new status for a good cause, rather than being a jerk. He could have focused on strengthing/ increasing his wolf pack, improving their image, etc. Instead he basically becomes a villian that I’m kind of hoping “goes away.”
