The Frisky Dish up the Good, the Bad and the WTF:

Bill and Jessica in True BloodAccording to The Frisky website, Episode 7 of  HBO’s True Blood was basically soft-core porn. While yes, there was a whole lot of sex going on, there were also plenty of other things too.

Here’s their list of the good, the bad and the WTF moments from this episode of True Blood:

The Good

  • Pam and Tara’s fight getting interrupted by the patrons of Merlotte’s. You can’t fight with the logic of  “That’s exactly what a zombie would say,” after Pam exclaims: “I am not a zombie!”
  • Alcide getting upset over seeing Sookie and Eric getting jiggy
  • Eric and Sookie in bed together after the aforementioned ‘jiggy’
  • Eric in something other than that awful sleeveless hoodie. Yay flannel!
  • Andy asking Holly out, even if it was in a brown suit — at least there were roses…
  • Fiona Shaw getting all witchy as opposed to dithering
  • Marnie as Antonia getting Tara to do something other than run away from her problems
  • Hoyt’s mom watching her neighbor burst into flames
  • Jason being the hero and running to save Jessica from the sun

The Bad

  • Marnie/Antonia not getting their full revenge on Luis. Surely HBO could have dragged it out and really made this baddie suffer?
  • Werewolf induction ceremonies suck! And not in a good way…
  • Bill’s ridiculous plan to save the vampires from walking out into the sun. There were just way too many burning flesh shots going on here
  • Bill and Jessica get all sweet. It seemed like the audience was just being set up to feel sorry for her
  • Jessica doesn’t love Hoyt
  • Alcide and Debbie getting it on


  • Jason doing handstand push ups while wearing boxing gloves. How on earth did he do that?
  • Pam getting skinned alive to slow down the rotting process. Although her screamed obscenities were very Pam!
  • Lafayette’s hair. Just when we thought it couldn’t get worse than that ferret-style he had happening in Episode 1, he goes and braids it. For a super stylin’ dude, he has got it all wrong.

So, what did you think were the highlights and lowlights of Episode 7?
