Ohhh Baby....You Smell Like Dinner

I have to say that I loved this episode 5x better than the premiere episode. Where we last left off with Sookie is when she gets out of the shower, takes off her robe and throws it behind her. Who catches it, no other than the Viking. I have to post the dialogue because for (1) it was classic Eric/Sookie and (2) because it’s content was very important as to Eric’s feelings and intentions and (3) it gives insight to how much he gets Sookie. So dialogue will now commence.

Sookie: (gasps) “What the hell? Excuse me?”
Eric: (growls) “Mmm. Such a strange sensation when the reality matches what you pictured in your mind so precisely”
Sookie: “Is this another dream? It’s been a year, how much of your blood is left in me?”
Eric: “Oh. It’s not a dream, I assure you”
Sookie: “Then how are you here? I rescinded my invitation”.
Eric: “You don’t own the house anymore. (takes keys out of his pocket and dangles them.) I do”
Sookie: “Why would you do that? Why would you buy my house?”
Eric: “Because I always knew you were alive, and if I owned that house, well then I would own you. Sookie, you are mine” (drops fang)
Sookie: “Stay away from me”
Eric: “This is no way to treat your new landlord”
Sookie: “I am not yours and I want you out of my house now”
Eric: “Funny thing about ownership, isn’t it? A little piece of paper and the only power you had over me is gone”.
Sookie: What do you want from me?”
Eric: “Everything”
Sookie: “You can’t have it”
Eric: “I bought it”
Sookie: “You bought my house, the house does not come with me inside it”
Eric: “Well, then I seriously overpaid”
Sookie: “That’s your problem”
Eric: “Your blood tastes like freedom Sookie. Like sunshine in a pretty blond bottle. While they may not know it yet , that is what vampires smell, when they smell you.”
Sookie: “Is that a threat?”
Eric: “Absolutely not, but others will find out and when they do, you’ll need protection, I can provide that for you”.
Sookie: “I’m willing to take my chances”
Eric: “I bought this house because I care about you. If all I wanted was to taste your blood again, I could do it right now and there wouldn’t be a thing you could do to stop me. But, instead I am asking you to be mine”
Sookie: “I could never be with you the way I was with Bill”

Eric: “The first time Bill declared you his, how did that make you feel?”
Sookie: “Angry”
Eric: “But safe? You’ll come around”
Sookie: “You’re not listening to a word I’m saying”
Eric: “I know you. There are two Sookie Stackhouse’s. One who still clings to the idea that she’s merely human and the other who’s coming to grips with the fact that you are better than that”
Sookie: “ And what do you think is going to happen when I do come to grips with it? Do you think my legs are just going to magically open for you?”
Eric : (grins) “Well, that was saucy, must have been fairy Sookie talking. I like when she comes out”
Sookie: “And I’m already sorry I said it”
Eric: “Don’t be, the more you let her speak for you, the more likely you are to goon living. And you want to live, don’t you?”
She does not answer, just gives him one of her apprehensive looks.
Eric: “ Well, then I hope to hear from you girls soon.” he walks to the back screen door, opening it and it squeaks. “I’ll see to it that gets repaired”

Didn’t you just love the dialogue? It was classic Eric and Sookie banter. This was pertinent because it has been said only Bill has control when it comes to her or anyone else’s blood. Just like in the season 3 finale, exercised control was shown, it is indeed not about her blood. He only wants to protect her, granted he is high-handed about it but I believe he needs to be. She won’t just let him so he has to force the issue. The main thing about the conversation was that he gets Sookie, understands her to the very core. This will go a long way in helping her protect herself. She needs to embrace what she is, not deny it because she thinks it is lame. You should really listen to Eric Sookie. I think she will come around.

We last left off with citizens of Hot Shot locking poor Jason in the freezer. Timbo is licking his head…ewwww, gross, Jason prefers Band-Aids. Jason tells the Hot Shot freaks/gang that he grew to love them and convinced them to let him go. Welcome back Crazy Ass Crystal and cousin/lover Felton. Felton said Jason was about to get fucked here, Rut-Roh, something tells me he meant literally. Sure enough here comes Panther Boy and Panther Girl, taking off their clothes and telling Jason they are going to bite him and turn him panther, so her and Jason can have panther pups. Apparently, Felton is shooting blanks.Then I guess she is going to get her freak on. Crystal and Felton are addicted to ‘V’. Poor Jason.
 Seems Bill has a person on the inside of Marnie’s witch coven and she tells me him of everything that transpired there, about the bird coming back to life. He tells her that her work there is done and they end up doing the horizontal bop in his bedroom. Sookie comes to his house to ask him for help with Eric, why she thought he could help is beyond me but she must have felt he had some kind of new found power. 

Don’t even get me started on how he came to be King. I will just say, it was not earned and he was a coward. He had humans dispatch of her. Eric would have wiped the floor with her ass and so would Russell. Here is my take on the Bill./King crap In my opinion Bill is nothing but Nan’s lackey in a Game of Thrones that he cannot possibly win. It is obvious that the real power is behind Nan and the Authority. 

Once they are done with him, they are going to throw him away like yesterday’s trash. Bill was a plant among the monarchies to create discord among them and has been doing it for years. Causing friction among the monarchs gives the Authority the perfect reason to come forward and take over. Say hello to the One True Authority, the True Face Of Vampires. Bill is nothing but a puppet to an Authority he swore fealty to for his life, with the ‘True Blood’! Nan: Good Good! He did nothing but sign his own death warrant with that statement. Anyhow, Bill feels Sookie while he is having sex with the fake uncover witch and tells his minions to let her through. Sookie walks in to them finishing dressing. Rat bastard, just saying. She wants help getting her house back from Eric and he says he cannot make Eric give the property back. Why not Bill, you are the King right? Well, it seems Eric has some “friends in high places”. Maybe higher than Bill but he can’t get into that. Hmmmm, there is something here that I have not quite put my finger on but it goes back to Nan and Bill’s little talk from the 1980’s about him spreading discord about the monarchies. That is pet theory number one. I will get my little finger on it. 

So remember Bill’s little sex toy/spy and the information she gave him about the witches. KFF, as I like to call him, summons Eric to his office and I got to say Eric’s bow was made of WIN, even without speaking a word, he can be a sarcastic MOFO, but I digress. Bill says “I understand you bought Sookie’s house” Eric says you bet your ass I did, well not really but it sounded good. LOL. Bill wants to know if there is any chance he would sell it back to Sookie. Eric calmly says no and again when Bill asked if he would sell it to him. He goes to leave and now this leads me to Pet theory number two. My fellow Rabids and I (we love the name BTW) thought it would be funny if Bill was somehow responsible for Eric getting amnesia and this I think is the perfect set-up for it. Bill would not let him send Pam, he wanted Eric to take care of it personally. “If they can control us, then they can control the dead” my bet is that he was hoping something would happen to Eric and he would not have to deal with him. Maybe he did not count on him surviving and he would succeeded in getting rid of Eric for good this time. Then he would have Pam arrested for some trumped up offense.

Eric goes to the Moon Goddess to tell them that they will not meet again. Marnie attempts a spell by telling everyone to join hands, Eric bites her, Tara attacks with a stake, causing Eric to let go of Marnie and proceeds to bite her. LA LA grabs hands with everyone and starts the chant and everyone joins in and all of a sudden, chaos reigns. The lights go out and Marnie’s face changes into a younger woman. I wonder if Eric knew her during the Spanish Inquisition? Alexander Skarsgard’s acting here is nothing short of brilliant, he owned this whole scene. His face went from an angry, provoked vampire to a blank slate, with nothing in his eyes, he was simply vacant, a shell of his former self. Now, AE is born and Sookie found him walking down the road, half-naked and he did not know who she was.

There was so much more to this episode but I wanted to get all those thoughts out of my mind and onto word. One of my favorite parts was when Sookie found the armoire and said Oh, I’ll keep this but when she opened it, she saw it was made of steel and with a ladder going down. Sookie: “Motherf***er, he built himself a cubby! He built himself a cubby in my house!” She drove to Fangtasia to see him and driving home from there is when she happened upon AE. See you after the next episode.
