Sometimes, less is more. Tonight's episode clocked in at a brisk 50 minutes -- and it was one of the best episodes of the season. Even with the laughable introduction of a mysterious scroll. Dun-dun-dun!
With just two more episodes to go, this episode...

Lilith is one tricky chick.
As if Bill isn't full of himself enough, she appears to him (naked and bloody, of course) a few times, tells him he's the chosen one to lead and to drink her. All of her.
But she does the same thing to another Authority...

Think Dick Cheney's thoughts on torture are extreme? Meet the Authority.
Meet them and be afraid. Very afraid. Because underneath the sheen of gentility, bureaucratic formalities and a really sweet reception area, the Authority is pretty vicious. ...

Just how many subplots swirled about in tonight's season premiere? I think I lost count at 32.
While it's always good to meet new characters (like Vampire Authority rep Nora, who gives off a distinct Rachel Weisz vibe) and see others get extended time...

"Took you long enough." -- Russell Edgington
So they finally found Russell. Because no one thinks to search in the creepy asylum for a vampire seeking to be reborn.
Seriously, the asylum was like a low-rent haunted house run by high schools students....

Being a new vampire ain't easy. And Tara's learning the hard way.
Escaping from Sookie's into the woods, Tara experiences vampire sensory overload — her vision is heightened, she can hear things very clearly. She can see the entire universe and...

Leave it to Russell Edgington to liven things up.
Captured by Eric and Bill (finally) at the Asylum of High School Student Horror House and brought back to the Authority, Russell seemed done for. He's outfitted with one of those helpful iStakes...

Ever wonder what a fairy burlesque club looks like?
It's sort-of like Moulin Rouge. But with more men in top hats and twinkly noises. And revelations about what happened to Sookie's parents.
Yup, we're back in fairyland, but it's not quite the...

I'm pretty sure "True Blood" just went over the deep end.
Here's a quick summary of what went down tonight:
A hate group recruiting Hoyt, who suddenly is a really, really bad person.
The smoke monster chuckling.
Pam sporting crimped hair.

Exhibit 23 of how ridiculous most of this episode was: Sookie actually says, "I'll be fine once I wash the pig out of my hair."
The season has tried my patience. It's not horrible, it's not great. Some moments are pretty great in a very campy way (I...

What do vampires do after massacring a wedding reception? Plan for world domination, of course.
After last week's monstrously ridiculous episode, this week was a bit more sedate. For "True Blood" that means a graphic sex scene, double Sams (seriously)...

Were you expecting Bill Compton to have a master plan? To be nice Bill all along and not some crazy vampire religious zealot?
It could have happened that way. But yeah, it didn't. The opposite happened.
When Eric and Sookie track him down in his Massive...
