True Blood Quickie: True Blood Season 7 Episode 6 “Karma” Recap

July 28, 2014

Here’s what went down in Episode 6 (entitled Karma) of HBO’s True Blood Season 7:

  • Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and Jessica Hamby (Deborah Ann Woll) cry over Bill Compton's (Stephen Moyer) Hep-V in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 6 (entitled 'Karma')Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) is exhausted but still puts in a good fight with the Yakuza. That is, until Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) is revealed; chained and held captive. So then it’s ‘Hello, countdown to dawn.’
  • Jessica Hamby (Deborah Ann Woll) overhears Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) and finds out he has Hep-V. When Bill leaves to sort out his will, Jess calls Jason (Ryan Kwanten) for moral support. Turns out Jason is post-coital with Violet (Karolina Wydra) – see, we just knew she wouldn’t go down without a fight! Jason thinks Violet is asleep, but, oh no, she’s not. She trashes the place after he leaves.
  • Bill spends a LOT of time at his lawyers office in this episode. It seems every infected vamper wants to put their affairs in order. Bill’s dose of Hep-V is doing weird things too. It seems to be an accelerated version – oh no. But, eventually Bill gets his turn and discovers that, thanks to Governor Burrell’s (Arliss Howard) law changes before he was spectacularly beheaded by Bill in Season 6, he can’t set his affairs straight – looks like Gov. Burrell got his revenge then! In order to sort out the mess, Bill will have to adopt Jessica rather than will her his estate. This will take time though, and more than Bill has. Apparently the lawyer can fast track Bill’s court proceedings – for 10 million cool ones! So Bill tries to glamour her into submission rather than being extorted. When that doesn’t work he kills her and her vampire protector. Way to go Bill!
  • Finally we get to meet True Blood’s new bad guy, Gus (Will Yun Lee). Turns out he runs Yakanoma Corporation. These are the guys who make Tru Blood. And since Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) infected the supply, the poor guy is broke. So he arrives with only three minutes to spare before dawn to strike up a deal with Eric and Pam. It seems he wants Sarah’s head on a spike. After Eric and Gus haggle over the fine print, Pam finally jumps in and talks some sense – right as their faces are starting to burn! A deal is finally brokered.
  • So what of Sarah Newlin? Seems she is as predictable as Pam thought, and heads straight for her sister’s house. Amber (Natalie Hall) jumps right on her and attempts to feed off her, but gets sick and passes out instead. When Amber finally comes too, the sisters have it out and Sarah fesses up to the fact there was a Hep-V antidote! YAY! *fist pumps the air* The only problem is she DRANK it, therefore making her the antidote. Yikes!
  • Andy (Chris Bauer) busts his daughter, Adilyn (Bailey Noble) in bed with Holly’s (Lauren Bowles) son, Wade (Noah Matthews). Turns into an argument between him and Holly, one which Arlene (Carrie Preston) has to sort out later on. Things go a little pear-shaped though when Holly and Andy go to talk to their kids and find out they are actually at Fort Bellefleur rather than at home. Uh-oh, I have a bad feeling about this.
  • Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) has a hangover. That doesn’t stop her brother from turning up and getting her out of bed to go and visit Jess. Once there, Jessica spills the beans about Bill and Sookie has a moment when she realizes Bill ingested her blood recently. Could she be the one who infected Bill? After a trip to the doctors and much soul searching with Jason, it turns out she might have.
  • Meanwhile, with all this soul searching, Jason realizes he needs to dump Violet and goes home to tell her right away. Only to discover how badly she has trashed the house. She has also left him a note breaking it off. Really Violet? What happened to all the ‘You are mine‘ business? Something just isn’t sitting right…
  • Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) and his Aunty Lettie Mae (Adina Porter) decide to drink James’ (Nathan Parsons) blood. Lala is doing this to disprove the visions Lettie Mae has been having. Except they totally wind up in the exact same trip and Lala is now convinced Tara (Rutina Wesley) is trying to tell them something when they wind up at her childhood home with Tara digging up the backyard. What is she looking for? We don’t find out, however, as Lettie Mae’s husband turns up to spoil their fun. In the end, Lettie Mae tells him where to go and I can feel a flashback scene coming on sometime soon…
  • Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) gets an ultimatum from Nicole (Jurnee Smollett-Bell). Seems she wants him to stop being the Mayor of Crazy and go live with her family instead. Wonder which option Sam will pick?
  • Remember how I thought something was up with Violet? Seems she is hankering for a taste of fairy. She has tracked down Adilyn and Wade at Fort Bellefleur and tells them about a ‘safe house’ she can take them to rather than them risking a vampire attack out there in the open. Oh crap, Adilyn.
  • Eric, Pam and Gus arrive at Amber’s house – to find she is completely healed. Oh, yeah baby!
  • Bill returns home to find Sookie and Jessica sobbing over his Hep-V.

True Blood Season 7: Sarah Palin Turns Down Cameo Role!

July 25, 2014

HBO Manages to Offend Ted Cruz AND Sarah Palin With Episode 5:

Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) and Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) get their Texan on in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 5 (entitled 'Lost Cause' and previously entitled 'Return to Oz')For many republican fans of HBO’s True Blood, last week’s episode (entitled Lost Cause) may have been a little bit unsettling. For other Truebies, it was probably hilarious. Especially when Ted Cruz took to social media with his retorts about the tea party massacre in HBO’s premiere vampire show. If you haven’t yet seen the episode and want to catch up on all the controversy immediately, you can read my recap on it here.

Since then, Sarah Palin has joined Ted Cruz in voicing her opinion about the episode – as well as revealing that HBO approached her for a cameo role in Episode 5!

The brilliant minds of True Blood were brazen enough to ask me to do a cameo on their show, apparently so they could insult a conservative woman in person instead of just all conservative women in general. Their offer wasn’t presented in any negative way, perhaps to benefit from a surprise factor after the guest appearance. I turned them down anyway.

Sarah recently told Breitbart News.

HBO’s True Blood Offends the Republicans!

July 23, 2014

In Episode 5 of Season 7, Pam Utters a One-Liner and Offends a Political Party:

Kristin Bauer van Straten stars as Pam in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 5 (entitled 'Lost Cause' nd previously titled 'Return to Oz')For HBO’s truebie fans, a social agenda and foul words are as common to witness in each episode of True Blood as fangs, gore and sex! But it seems this time that HBO’s resident snarky vampire, Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten), has topped the lot as far as offending goes. In Episode 5 (entitled Lost Cause) of Season 7, Pam uttered the following line:

Oh. My. God. I’m a Republic**t.

While many fans thought the line was hilarious, there were people out there who found it a less than flattering term to use for the Republican party – like republicans! But when Pam and Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) crash a Ted Cruz fundraiser set at the George W. Bush Presidential Library in Dallas which then turns into a Yukuza supported massacre, it seems a more personal reply is needed. Ted Cruz took to social media afterwards to voice his opinion on Facebook:

Not happy with just this humorous right of reply, he then took to Twitter a couple of hours later:

 

So, what did you think of this episode of True Blood? Were you offended? Or was it all just in good humor? Let us know your thoughts by commenting below!

True Blood Quickie: True Blood Season 7 Episode 5 “Lost Cause” Recap

July 21, 2014

Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) and Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) get their Texan on in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 5 (entitled 'Lost Cause' and previously entitled 'Return to Oz')Here’s what went down in Episode 5 (entitled Lost Cause, but also previously titled as Return to Oz) of HBO’s True Blood Season 7:

  • Kenya (Tonya Wright) is dead! Yeah, totally missed that last week.
  • Willa Burrell (Amelia Rose Blaire) is pissed as hell at Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) and wants to be released. Eric strikes a deal with her; tell him everything she knows about Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) and he will. Turns out Sarah is in Dallas – and she has a sister who is a vampire!
  • Poor Ginger (Tara Buck) – she’s a sex slave to Eric, but without the sex. No matter now much she begs, Eric will neither take her to Dallas with them or have his wicked way with her.
  • Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) returns to an empty house with an empty heart – lucky Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) is there, ready to throw her a big party – is this the feast that Riley Smith (Keith the vampire) was hinting at? Lafayette wants a celebration of Alcide’s (Joe Manganiello) and Tara’s (Rutina Wesley) lives rather than a gloomy funeral. Alcide’s dad, Jackson (Robert Patrick), agrees with Lala, right after he bags up all of Alcide’s stuff (until Sookie is ready to deal with it).
  • Sarah’s sister, Amber Mills (Natalie Hall), has Hep-V – and wants her sister dead, so agrees to help Eric anyway she can. Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) totally wants wants to be besties with this vamp now.
  • Lettie Mae (Adina Porter) wants to go to Sookie’s party but her husband won’t let her go on account of all the booze and vampire blood. Can anyone say allergy pills? He is sleeping like a babe in no time.
  • Bill (Stephen Moyer) has a whole heap of civil war flashbacks while at the party. It seems he was a southern deserter who ended up fighting rather than risk his family anymore. Interestingly, we learn that Jane Bodehouse (Patricia Bethune) is a descendant from the saloon owner in Bill’s time.
  • Violet (Karolina Wydra) spends this entire episode being unlikable. This results in Jason (Ryan Kwanten) ending up in the arms of Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) again. And why would Jess let that happen? After all, she has a boyfriend, right? Wrong. Turns out she caught James (Nathan Parsons) in the… erm… back seat of her car with Lafayette.
  • But at least she made up with Andy Bellefleur (Chris Bauer) before the party when to hell for her.
  • Speaking of Andy, he finally proposes to Holly (Lauren Bowles). Of course this is totally the funniest awkward proposal ever. Thankfully Holly says yes – even if it is before he even has a chance to pop the question!
  • Eric and Pam dress the part of socialite republicans before attending the gala event that Sarah Newlin’s parents will be attending. Turns out Eric is now at Stage 2 of Hep-V. He is stoic about it – even if Pam is barely holding it all together.
  • Keith turns up at Sookie’s party and Arlene (Carrie Preston) goes all gaga over him. Sookie steps in to remind Keith to turn his sexiness down and he lets Sookie know that Arlene is the prettiest thing he has seen in 300 years – and that he will see her later on in her dreams.
  • After that, Sookie and Arlene chat about losing loved ones to stray bullets and Alcide’s dad listens in before leaving Alcide’s jacket behind for Sookie to find once everyone has gone.
  • Lettie Mae arrives right at the end of a speech Jackson is giving in honor of his son. Lala tries to send her home but Sookie asks if Lettie Mae would like to say a few words about Tara. Which she does – with grace – is she finally changing?
  • Bill seems sad throughout this entire episode.
  • Sookie is drunk and in everyone’s head after that. Seems everyone loves Sookie now. That is until she overhears something Lettie Mae is muttering. Something about Willa and vampire blood… Oh no! Lettie Mae stabs Willa before Sam (Sam Trammell) can step in and stop her. Willa is okay – she’s a vampire after all – but Lala takes his aunt away before she can do anymore harm.
  • Nicole (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) is totally not down with celebrating the dead and after much putting up with it all, finally cracks. Sam has to take her home.
  • Back in Dallas, and we find Sarah has holed up her mother in the ladies and is attempting to get back into her good books. Seems the Yukuza incident a few episodes ago has really shaken up Sarah. Meanwhile, Eric has glamoured Sarah’s dad. But before he can get any information out of him the damn Yukuza arrive and start shooting, so it’s R.I.P. Mr and Mrs Newlin. Sarah is running for her life after that – and runs straight into Eric Northman! Before he has a chance to strangle the life right out of her, he has to take out the Yakuza. Wonder if Sarah will be spared – she might even be able to help out with a cure for Hep-V? Seems we’ll have to wait until next week to find out.
  • Finally, we end this episode with Bill getting out of the bathtub. Oh no, now we know why he was all mopey at Sookie’s party – he has Hep-V too!

In search of an elusive adversary, Eric and Pam head to Dallas and attend a gala fundraiser. Andy (Chris Bauer) makes a life-changing decision; Jessica and James reach a crossroads; Bill loses himself in remembrance of human days.
