(S03E03) "I've got your rug all wet." - Eric to Sookie
They're certainly going after the twisted sex and gore so far this season, aren't they? Not that the Maenad orgies last season weren't twisted, but they're not as twisted as the sex scenes in this episode. Well, at least one of the sex scenes. Oh heck, follow me after the jump and let's talk about 'True Blood.'
I can't wait 'til the end of this review to talk about that last scene with Bill and Lorena. Good grief. That takes "twisted sex" to a whole new level. The scene a couple weeks ago with Eric having sex -- I guess you'd call it that -- with the tied-up waitress was a chaste peck on the cheek compared to Bill twisting Lorena's head around so ... what? ... So he didn't have to look at her face while he was doing it?
And why WAS he doing it anyway? Does she have that much control over him that he's powerless against her desires? Was he so broken up about having to turn away from Sookie in order to protect her that he just lost all sense of anything? Feel free to add your own thoughts in the comments below.
OK, let's go back to the beginning of the episode. I guess you could call those things hanging out of Eric's mouth neck entrails after he caught the bullet meant for the wolf, then killed him and told Sookie he got her rug wet. And that was a fun slo-mo bullet shot out of Sookie's gun.
Next sex scene: Tara and Franklin Mott. He just looks sleazy, doesn't he? On the other hand, I had no idea that vampire sex was that intense. Maybe that's just the thing Tara needs right now. Maybe she needs to "lose herself to the void." Or was it in the void? Either way, maybe it would help tame that massive amount of anger she's got boiling inside of her all the time.
Then we had Pam going down on the Fangtasia girl. "Spit it out, cupcake. I'm in the middle of somethin'," she told Jessica when she called seeking more advice on the dead guy.
Oh, that underwear of Joe Lee's is beyond nasty. How about we make up a new word for it? How about "the yellow swamp"? OK, we'll keep working on it. All suggestions appreciated.
I'm trying to remember who Arlene was having sex with nine weeks ago. Again, with all that Maenad sex taking place, it could have been anyone. Or anything, for that matter.
So I guess Sookie and Tara are friends again, since Sookie paid for Eggs' funeral and showed up. Seriously, though, Tara causes more problems than she's worth. Now she's got Franklin Mott all entangled in their lives.
Nice to get a little more back story on Bill, the son he lost, the family he had to sacrifice, and his early beginnings with Lorena. The actress who plays Bill's wife is great. That scene was very intense.
Still not sure what's going on with Jason and the bullet holes, the hieroglyphics on the test, and the no-pants dream sequence. Some of you mentioned that maybe he's manifesting the guilt he feels over killing Eggs. Could be. I still think there's something else going on there. He's got some kind of spell on him or something.
Poor Sookie. Once again, cleaning up the blood at the house.
Alcide = yummy. And fun new location with the were-bar.
Some fun quotes:
"It's like Armageddon in here every time someone chips a dessert glass." - The Vampire King about Talbot being distraught over the burned rug
"Don't ever get married, Sam. Second you do, that's when they start to woman you." - Joe Lee
Hoyt: "The legal blood alcohol limit in the state of Louisiana is ...?
Jason: "Uh ... When they're drunk?"
"Look, man, there are two kinds of people in this world. People who got no dreams, people who got dreams and don't do nothin' about it, and people who go out and fulfill their dreams. I don't know about you, but I'm the third kind, so you gonna help me out or not?" - Jason to Hoyt
"You'll have to pay the insurance, of course. I'm not an idiot. And I'm gonna have to sell you the car for one dollar to avoid that pesky gift tax." - Eric to Lafayette
"Dude, you throw a punch, you are so one of us." - Tommy to Sam, in a confrontation with Joe Lee
"How come nobody tells me any of this?" - Jessica, on Franklin Mott being able to enter her house because the previous human owner died a year ago
"You sure got some pretty lips, girlfriend." - Franklin, making the dead guy's mouth move as he mimics him. That is one sick vamp!
