She screams, Pam senses her vampire baby is in trouble and says, "Stupid b----." I'm assuming Pam will go and help her (she does have something of a kind heart), but where is the Tara plot line going here? Will she eventually forgive Sookie and Lafayette or terrorize (Tara-rize? heh.) the town?
I'm wondering if she'll eventually get adopted by an unfriendly vampire. They're still looking for Russell Edgington, right?
Meanwhile, at the sexy Authority: Roman has accepted Bill's and Eric's deal: they'll go hunt down Russell if he doesn't give them the True Death right then and there. The Chancellors are mostly furious at the decision (especially the annoying little boy who goes on and on about not negotiating with hostages. I hate that kid).
But it's a done deal. Eric and Bill are both outfitted with this device that will kill them if they try any funny business (it's called the iStake. Good work, Apple) and later both have sex with Salome.
Seriously, both are seduced by Chancellor Salome, who we learn in the Salome from the Bible (really). So weird and random. Roman later also has sex with Salome. So there's that. And there's a lot of chatting about how Roman loves him some vampire mainstreaming but some people don't and there's a war a'brewing. It's all very tedious.
On the other hand, we learn that the Authority recruited Steve Newlin to be on their side because he has influence over the religious right and can help them counteract the blow to mainstreaming if Russell decides to take over the airwaves again. Because Steve Newlin is trustworthy like that.
Jason's hot for teacher (again): Can't say I'm surprised that Jason Stackhouse once had sex with his hot blonde high-school teacher. The woman is back in Bon Temps after getting divorced and Jason runs into her at the grocery store.
"You taught me all I know," he says and I don't think he means algebra.
Later, at her place (she's also a cat lady now, by the way) she tries to apologize for what she did to Jason. Jason's not hearing it because he thinks about her all the time (sure) and would love to give it the old high-school-sex-with-teacher try again.
So they do. But he's immediately filled with regret and leaves. Jason, again, is learning that sex doesn't solve everything, but when will the show settle on portraying Jason as sexually promiscuous or reformed monogamist? It keeps going back and forth in an annoying way.
After smelling some guy who smells really, really good (she tries to track him down but he vanishes), Jessica is all riled up and goes to Jason's house. He's not in the mood for love, but in the mood for talking.
I like Jason better when he's oversexed.
More Pam flashbacks!: We go back to the 1905 brothel where Pam was a madam to see more of her first interactions with Eric. He shows up, is offered the house's "wares" but just wants to talk to Pam.
They go into a room and encounter Bill (!) and Lorena (!!) feeding on a woman. Seriously, in 1905 San Francisco, Bill, Eric, Pam and Lorena were all in one place? This was interesting to see but hard to believe.
Bill doesn't like Eric barging in on his feeding time, so he confronts him angrily and is about to stake him before Lorena stops him. Eric looks like he's about to kill Bill for his insubordination.
"Eric, please. He's new. He doesn't understand." So Eric lets him go.
Later, Eric and Pam have sex (if you couldn't tell already, there was a lot of sex in this episode) and Pam tells him to make her a vampire. She's unhappy with her life now and will be even more unhappy when she gets old and is saddled with TB or hepatitis, she explains. Makes sense.
Eric explains that it's a big responsibility for him to make someone. After Pam says that he can turn her and then leave her alone forever, he explains, "Would you toss a newborn baby in the gutter?"
You mean like what Pam is doing to Tara?
Pam starts to cry, turns around and shows Eric that she's cut her wrists. "Walk the world with me or watch me die," she states.
So Eric turns her.
Sex and blood = this episode. Let's keep it moving,"True Blood"writers.
