If I had to describe last Sunday's True Blood season finale in just one word it would have to be: Bloodbath.
On the cusp of True Blood's fourth season finale the side story-lines get a much needed reprieve in this second last episode of the year, just so that all hell could break loose.
With the countless years of practice vampires seem to find it pretty easy to get the stain of blood out of everything they touch. A little glamouring here and there and all their problems seem to just disappear.
After last week's grave yard brawl things couldn't get any messier.... or could they? "Let's Get Out of Here" sets straight most of last week's craziness only to turn everything upside by the end of the episode. Only this time on live TV.
With the vampire BBQ now over and sun down the Louisiana King goes on damage control after the town's newest centuries old wrathful necromancer's genocide spell. In the aftermath of Antonia's spell Jessica is saved by Jason and then later breaks it off with Hoyt to push both of them away.
In a universe where vampires roast rather than glimmer in the day time sunlight isn't an option. Being pulled into the light might be fine for a twihard like Rob Pattinson or a day-walking Wesley Snipes, but Bon Temps' vamps have to develop a silver fetish if they don't want to be Louisiana BBQ.
With this episode, "I Wish I Was the Moon", True Blood gets to the half-way point for this summer series fourth season.
In this week's True Blood episode, "Me and the Devil", it didn't have that usually shock and awe humour this Sunday night series is normally known for. Rather it seemed like it was more of a bridging episode, with strong religious over tones, than a regular standalone episode.
What happens when a thousand year old vampire gets drunk off of fairy blood? Plays grab ass and goes swimming of course. Canadian rock band Danko Jones not only provides music for this latest True Blood episode but their same titled track helps sum up Eric's drunken day in the sun.
Having a clean slate after over a thousand years' worth of killing and feeding on humans may sound like a good thing but amnesia for a vampire doesn't quite mean a second chance. Not when there are witches involved.
