A lot of things happened during last night's episode of True Blood, and while I wouldn't consider it the most well structured episode of the series (to say the least), there was a lot of set up for some potentially interesting story arcs, one of which involves Eric and Bill, and another focuses on Sookie and her future as a part-fairy. The promo for next week's "Somebody that I Used to Know" hints at more to come for both stories.
Is there a chance Sookie could be "normal"? As interesting a topic as it is to explore, I certainly hope not. Granted True Blood is running drastically short on average human characters these days, but I like that Sookie's able to defend herself and that she serves more of a purpose than simply being vampire bait. So while I can appreciate her interest in exploring the idea of losing her fairy-gifts, if it all comes down to it, I hope she ends up choosing to appreciate what she can do, even if it sometimes presents challenges.
That topic is addressed in the promo for next Sunday's episode, and it also looks like maybe Bill's drank the Lilith Kool-Aid.
Is Bill just playing like he's "evolving"? Or is he really into this anti-mainstreaming Lilith act? It seems like Eric's ready to go but Bill wants to stay. Meanwhile, it looks like Tara's ready to show down on someone. And we may get to see Alcide finally face off with J.D.. Drama!
True Blood airs Sundays at 9:00 p.m. ET on HBO. Read our full breakdown of last night's "In the Beginning" here.
