Last night's episode of True Blood proved to be something of a theology lesson, as we were given a brief breakdown of the story of Lilith as it pertains to True Blood lore. It seems like this will be a big focus in the series' fifth season. Not only do we have the promo for next Sunday night's episode to show you, but HBO also released a video that focuses on the Authority and their divided beliefs on the subject of the interpretation of their bible.
Before we get to the Authority video, here's a look at Episode 3 ("Whatever I Am, You Made Me"). When last night's episode left off, Tara had run off from Sookie's house to parts unknown. Based on the promo for next week's episode, she may be on the hunt…
Was that Hoyt dressed up and all goth looking? And are those Debbie's parents talking to Alcide about their missing daughter? I was sort of wondering if anyone cared that Debbie was gone, seeing as Alcide hasn't expressed much concern. Then again, he has other things on his mind lately. In other news, it seems like Jessica smells something she likes.
As for the authority, it looks like Eric and Bill may have found their way out of of the true death, at least for now. But after last night's episode, added to this video, which explores the topic of vampire religion, we should probably expect to get to know the Authority a lot better this season.
Given that religion plays a focus in the series, I like that we're starting to see that vampires have their own system of beliefs and that, just as humans are split on how the bible should be interpreted, so too are vampires when it comes to the interpretation of Lilith's story. It should be great to see how this is further developed as Season 2 goes on. And I'm also really curious to see if Lilith turns out to be a living vampire. I think she's referred to as a martyr, which means it's probably assumed that she's dead, but wouldn't it be interesting if some vampire showed up claiming to be her? Just a theory…
