Highlights and Lowlights of True Blood’s “Cold Grey Light of Dawn” Episode

August 13, 2011

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

WTF?!

  • 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?

Top Quotes from Episode 7, “Cold Grey Light of Dawn”

August 13, 2011

Supernatural Vs. Supernatural:

Rutina Wesley as Tara S4 Ep7A very interesting night for fans of True Blood as the plot thickens with the war that is beginning to rage between the vampires and witches. There is a definite line drawn in the ground and it will be very interesting to see who is on what side. The top quotes of the night from episode seven, “Cold Grey Light of Dawn”:

“It may be ten minutes from now or ten years, the moment you think you’re safe, I promise, I will hunt you down and f***ing shred you like confetti.”

Pam to Tara outside of Merlotte’s. It doesn’t matter if Pam’s skin is melting off or she is dolled up in 300 dollar shoes, she is one scary vamp!

“I swear to God I’ll burn this f***ing taco stand to the ground if you don’t let us up out this muthaf***er.”

Layfette to Jesus’s grandfather after being scared to death and taken over by Jesus’ dead uncle. The best part was when Jesus’ grandfather came out, very nonchalant, like, ‘Hold your horses, I was just having sex with my wife’. I mean really, La La! How dare you interrupt him?

“Well I sure as hell don’t want to fry in the sun, what do we do?”

Jessica to Bill when he tells her about the complicated situation regarding Antonia resurrecting in Marnie’s body.

“So tonight we go to ground in silver, and then what?”

Eric & Sookie S4 Ep7 “heart beating”One of Bill’s sheriffs when finding about Bill’s plan to keep them safe. I am not so sure they were thrilled with his plan.

“I’m listening to your heartbeat. I can feel it. Every pulse through your skin into mine. If I lay still and think about nothing else, feels like my own heart is beating.”

Eric to Sookie after making love. The way he looks at Sookie so beautiful and gentle. It was truly a beautiful moment between the two of them.

“I’m going to shove my fist up your a** and use you as a hand warmer.”

Pam to the doctor while undergoing her beauty treatment. I think Pam needs to be nicer to that doctor who is saving her a**, literally.

“Pam! Get your a** out here you prune faced bitch, I ain’t scared of you.”

Tara to the woods when walking down the road where she ends up meeting Marnie’s new identity. While Tara was at first skeptical, she eventually agreed with Antonia/Marnie that they need to protect themselves. I wonder how Tara is going to feel when she realizes the full extent of Antonia’s plan.

Out Comes the Sun

“Ain’t going to be nothing left for you to save if you keep at it — I feel like I’m dying.”

Jessica to Bill who is nearly begging to not be silvered anymore.

“I’ve lost too many people in my life, I can’t lose you too.”

Sookie to Eric when having to silver him. Awww, they are beginning to be that super sweet couple that no one wants to be around.

“Old Luca could have warned me. I felt like a giant-a** puppet for your ghost uncle.”

Luna and Sam S4 Ep7Lafayette to Jesus when talking about himself as a medium, who was being used to save Jesus.

“Okay, how can I say this in a way you won’t misinterpret — f*** you.”

Luna to Sam over the phone. I am not sure if smarty pants Sam could still misinterpret that message.

“Well I can ask my boyfriend, he’s got great spiritual energy when he’s not stoned”.

Coven member to Tara when asked to bring in more people to the coven circle. Hmm, they aren’t being very picky are they?

“I’m sorry. I have caused you so much suffering in your human life and now in this one.”

Bill to Jessica, such a sweet and emotional line between the two of them. He seems to be trying to make amends to those that are important to him.

“Are you in love with her?”

Debbie to Alcide when asking about whether or not Alcide is in love with Sookie. Debbie, Debbie, Debbie! When a man and you are in the moment, best not to start talking about another woman. Show him that you are strong and confident.

“Tell me… was I next? I mean there’s no way to keep it up with both of us around, the only thing to do would be to kill me, then you’d have the money, the bar, the girl… everything.”

Sam to Tommy when confronting him about changing into Sam. Looks like Tommy is on the outs again.

“But understand this, vampires are NOT immortal. They are only harder to kill.”

Jessica meeting the sunOh Antonia is out for blood, vampire blood! You naughty witch.

 

“He’s not going to make it without somebody there for him.”

 

The line that started it all, the fiasco at the end. Sookie said it to Jason, who then realized that Jessica would need someone as well. So he went in search of her, where he was met by one of Bill’s guards. The last sounds of the night were Jessica’s desire to see the sun and a gunshot. Who will make it out alive?

August 10, 2011

Anna Stephen Alex HBO S4 promoAnd so they are to meet the sun…

The vampires, under an intense spell cast by the spirit of Antonia and some fellow witches, were desperate to burst free from their protective silver chains and greet the daylight. Poor Jessica made it to the door, even though Jason made a mad dash to save her. Sam realized exactly what made Tommy so sick… and he was not happy about it. Debbie questions Alcide‘s feelings for Sookie, Tara hurts Naomi to protect her, and Sookie refuses to let Eric meet the sun.

Marcia de Rousse as Dr. Ludwig Returns to True Blood!

August 4, 2011

Marcia de Rousse as True Blood Dr. Ludwig

We all love the irrascible Dr. Ludwig, and this Sunday, August 7, 2011, Marcia de Rousse will reprise her role as doctor to the Supes! Dr. Ludwig will have a face off with our beloved Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) in “Cold Grey Light of Dawn“, the 7th episode of season 4.

That’s not all that happens in this episode, of course. According to IMDB:

With Marnie empowered by spirits of the dead, Bill issues an unpopular order to save vampires from the light. Eric embraces his amnesia; Luna discovers Sam is not the man she thought he was; Lafayette expands his consciousness; Pam gets a body peel; Andy’s date with Holly doesn’t go as planned; Jessica has doubts about her future with Hoyt; Alcide and Debbie join a new pack.

Check out the Buzzed video for the bloody sneak peek of Dr. Ludwig’s return. She’s in the very last moments of the clip so you’ll have to suffer through interviews with Kristin Bauer van Straten, Stephen Moyer, Anna Paquin and other fangtastic True Blood actors to see it. (I was being a bit snarky, you’ll enjoy the video!)
