Sookie Returns from Fairy Land to Find Things Have Changed on 'True Blood' (VIDEO)

'True Blood' - 'She's Not There'If you haven't watched the fourth season premiere of 'True Blood' (Sun., 9PM ET on HBO), you certainly don't want to be reading this article. After a crazy, and some would say uneven, third season, season four picks events up right where we left them. Sookie is in fairy-land, but can all this beauty be for real, and who's that guy over there? He sure looks familiar.


We told you to stop reading, so if you're still here it's your own fault you know now that it's Sookie's grandfather, only he doesn't look nearly old enough. In fact, he looks like Gary Cole. With an appearance by the spirit of Stephen Root's dead vamp later in the episode it was almost a supernatural 'Office Space' reunion.

But granddad wasn't the only surprise in store for Sookie in fairy-land. Turns out not only is Sookie part-fairy -- thus the mind-reading thing -- but so was her grandfather and the fae queen has decided they've "sown too many seeds with humans. Now it is time to harvest." She doesn't want any more "bearers of the fae" on the human plane.

But Sookie's far too bullheaded for that, so she orchestrates her escape and drags her granddaddy along. Only to find out when they come back that even though she hasn't been gone that long, it's been a year in the real world. Cue dramatic changes in the cast member's lives and relationships. Won't that be fun to explore this season.

What did you think of the new Bon Temps and the classic "one year later" television stunt for 'True Blood'? Which character's story has you most intrigued right now? Jason's hillbilly brood? Sam's new anger management group? Tara's new lesbian cagefighting life in New Orleans? Sheriff Andy addicted to V? Arlene's fear of her "evil" baby? Lafayette living with Jesus and meeting his coven? Bill as King of Louisiana? Eric owns Sookie's house? See, change is fun!

Season four's already better than last season - a virtual reboot. I loved it!

I am so happy with the first episode. I like the way they let a year go buy and we get to see all the new lives of all the characters. I love Sam's new group and the Vamp's stories. I don't understand the thing with Tommy and Holt's Mom. That was really weird. The witch thing is creepy to me and I'm not sure I will like that aspect of the season but I will wait and see how it goes. Andy and his addiction will get old real fast and I hope that doesn't get alot of air time. Glad Tara is gone and hope her time is limited. Over all, I loved it and can't wait till the next episode. I knew from the first that Eric was the one who bought the house. It just made sense and I can't wait till he and Sookie gets together. I hope the whole season dosen't go as fast as the first episode. It felt like about ten Min and it was over. Can't wait for the next one. Great Job.

Yeah after Sookie talked to the real-estate? woman I told my wife that I bet Eric bought her house. At least they didn't make us wonder for a long time. On another note, I've been complaining about how stupid this show has gotten, and threatened to stop watching if it got any worse. Another commenter said it best "The first season was like real-life with vampires in the background, and now every character is some sort of mythical being". And my finger was hovering over the channel button on the remote for the first few minutes of this episode. I mean, fairy/goblin people throwing glitter balls of destruction? It doesn't get much stupider (yes, I know thats not a word) than that. That would be a difficult pill to swallow even on Harry Potter. Mercifully, that scene was fairly short and everything went back to normal after that. I'm not sure I can handle any more of that though...
