True Blood 3.05 “Trouble” Review

July 19, 2010 by  

Trouble” is an understatement for what happened on True Blood last night! Not that I didn’t love every second of it. This was my favorite episode of Season 3 so far, with some great acting from the whole cast and engaging writing by Nancy Oliver. For the first time, I felt like what was going on in Bon Temps was just as interesting as the events brewing down in Jackson, MS.

The episode begins in the King’s mansion with Talbot and Franklin throwing snide remarks at one another and baring their fangs threateningly until Russell, Lorena, and Bill walk in, still bloody from their evening meal (depressed stripper a la carte). Tied to a chair, Tara is shocked to find her best friend’s boyfriend in such strange company. Bill doesn’t do anything to rescue her from her situation, which makes Lorena gloat, as if his seeming indifference to Tara proves something. She follows him up to his room, thinking he’s just playing hard to get and will be hers again eventually. Bill couldn’t care less: “You know, Russell was right–you’re not very smart. You’ve played yourself into a corner, you tiresome cow.” (Hopefully she finally gets the message!)

Franklin presents Russell with the file on Sookie that he uncovered in Bill’s home. The King is now certain that his new Sheriff isn’t sharing everything with him. He changes his mind about Sookie and wants her brought to him. Franklin gets to tell him the joyful news–he won’t have to look far since she’s already in Jackson. The exchange between them is just one of many brilliant moments for James Frain throughout this episode, from his request that he be paid in cash (“The last time you had any real money, you ended up at the slots in Biloxi slaughtering a church group of elderly women.” “They wouldn’t let me have a turn!”), to his insistence that his relationship with Tara is different because she’s so messed up, they could be twins.

Franklin’s psychotic antics continue. He dresses Tara in a white gown and ties her to the bed. He sees a text message on her cell phone from Lafayette and is jealous until she tells him it’s her gay cousin. Franklin has lots of fun showing off how fast he can type a response with his vampire reflexes. During the day, Tara unties herself and creeps out of the house while all the vamps are dead to the world. She takes off running across the yard, but Coot chasesher down in wolf form and brings her back. When Franklin learns that she tried to escape, he cries like a baby: “[I tie you up] to keep you safe! What other reason could there be?! You have no idea how much you’ve hurt me. I feel like I’ve been staked!” Tara plays her part well. She knows she’ll lose her life if she upsets him.

Franklin later finds her crying, sitting at the table with a bowl of flowers in front of her: “Who made you cry? I’ll kill him!” “Nobody,” Tara replies. “It’s only–I’m hungry, and they brought me this. And I can’t eat daylilies.” She calmly explains that if they’re going to be together, she needs things like food. He apologizes for forgetting to take care of her, but it won’t matter in a day–he’s going to make her his vampire bride. Lesson to Tara: if you get through this, perhaps in the future you should be more cautious of strangers.

Eric arrives to visit Russell to ask for permission to hunt Bill and bring him to justice for selling vampire blood. Russell teases Eric a little bit: “Oh no! That’s heinous. Are you sure? Let’s ask him.” Bill enters, not surprised that Eric has tried to pin Queen Sophie-Anne’s plot on him. For a few seconds, Eric looks around in surprise at this new arrangement. Then he smiles at the realization that Bill has relinquished Sookie as his human. Eric turns to the King for advice on how to address the situation with Pam. Russell growls about the Magister’s outdated methods of judgment and inflated power. He invites Eric to stay while they figure out how to proceed. Bill looks grumpy about their new house guest, but Talbot couldn’t be more thrilled. The next night, he delights in giving Eric a tour of the house. Eric admires some of the interesting and beautiful objects, while Talbot admires the beautiful vampire.

Alcide drives Sookie back to his place, still upset over what happened at Lou Pine’s. He reminisces about how good Debbie could be sometimes: “She used to play horseshoes with my dad, help my mom plant tomatoes.” But whoever that woman was has been corrupted by her new pack, lost to her V addiction. She shows up later screaming at Alcide, but good intentions almost shine through–she might actually be trying to warn him for his own safety. But Debbie goes crazy when Sookie wanders in: “Awww, hell no! You’re f—ing my wolf, bitch!…I will cut you!” From overhearing her thoughts, Sookie can tell that Debbie has no idea who or where Bill is.

Jason shows up at the police station reporting for his first day on duty. Andy puts him behind the desk to answer phones, and he spends the day passing the time with various amusements–making a chain of paper clips to limbo under; paper football; playing with the fingerprinting stuff and getting ink all over his face and shirt like a little boy. He gets very frustrated and demands he be given a special assignment, so Andy sets him to work washing the police cars. When the pretty blonde girl from the drug house in Hot Shot drives by, Jason jumps in the car and follows her. He puts on the flashing lights and pulls her over. He turns on the charm, but all he gets from her is her name: Crystal. Gotta give that girl credit–confronted with a shirtless Jason and she doesn’t cave easily! He invites her to Merlotte’s that night. Even though she says she can’t come, he says he’ll be waiting. And he does. Crystal shows up just as he’s leaving, but she’s hesitant for some reason. There are things about her that she can’t explain to him. He takes her for a walk to the lake. They kiss, and she tells him this thing between them can’t last: “Now is everything. Now is perfect. I’ve never been happier in my whole life than I am right now with you.”

Lafayette has plenty of cute flirting in this episode, too. When Jesus shows up at Merlotte’s out of the blue, he thinks Ruby Jean has passed away. Jesus feels bad for scaring him, but no, she’s fine, still her rude self. He just came by to see if Lafayette wanted to go out with him. When it sinks in with Lafayette that this cute guy has no ulterior motives and just wants to spend time with him, he looks a little shy for the first time ever on this series. Jesus decides to wait around all day for him to get off work.

Tommy is less obnoxious now that Sam has proven he wants to help his family. The Mickens move in to one of the houses he rents out (looks like the same one Dawn lived in before she was killed in Season 1!). Across the street, Terry is moving in with Arlene. He’s positively beaming, and Arlene is positively sick-looking. Her bad mood continues at work, where she hurts Jessica’s feelings by not making eye contact with her because she’s afraid of being hypnotized. (So what does Jessica do, but turn around a glamour a couple not to tip Arlene). Tommy now has a job at Merlotte’s, he shares a nice moment with Jessica when Hoyt shows up with a date (“That’s a giant 6th grade boy…Come on, you’re a smoking hot vampire. You’re the majors.”), but things get weird when we start to see more into Tommy’s relationship with his father. There’s definitely something amiss there–Tommy acts all badass, but he’s clearly frightened of Joe Lee. Sam gets to witness it firsthand when Tommy stays over in his trailer that night and his father shows up infuriated.

Alcide goes out to report what he saw to his pack master. Sookie wants to find out more about Russell, but Alcide doesn’t want to bring her. She won’t take no for an answer: “Work with me, Alcide. It gets easier.” (Ha! As if…) The alpha were is a tough-looking middle aged guy. He already knew about Russell’s dealings with Coot’s pack, and other branded weres for centuries. He commands Alcide to leave it alone, just let Russell do what he wants and then he’ll move on to someplace else. Sookie listens in on the pack master’s mind and realizes how afraid he is.

Russell talks with Bill about Sookie’s family tree. He thinks Bill has been investigating where her telepathy comes from because the Queen has some big reward for him if he discovers the truth. It becomes clear that Bill has fallen out of favor. Coot comes to see Russell and Bill is sent to his room, afraid of what will be done to him. Coot comes in to see him and laughs that he gets to break the news to BillSookie is in the same city, sleeping with a werewolf. Bill’s protective instincts are awakened. He beats Coot bloody: “WHERE IS SOOKEH?!” A guard hears the noise and comes in to check. Bill smashes his face into the silver door and flees. We know that this is a trap laid by Russell, but that doesn’t stop Bill from going to her.

While on his tour with Talbot, Eric sees a gold crown with some engraved designs on it. He recognizes it as a Viking design, and he should know; it belonged to his father. The flashback that follows shows us just why Eric has a vendetta against the pack of werewolves with the ‘Operation Werwolf’ symbol branded onto their skin.

When he was a young man, Eric‘s family was Viking royalty, and had responsibilities within their community. Eric wasn’t ready to take on any those responsibilities, and he and his father argued over dinner one night about it as his mother and baby sister watched. The argument ended with Eric leaving to indulge in some youthful exploits with a redheaded goat girl. While otherwise involved, Eric hears screams and crashes, and he returns to find his entire family killed by wolves. With his father’s dying breath, he says that Eric must seek vengeance. Outside in the snow, a cloaked figure with Russell’s voice takes his father’s crown and sweeps off into the night.

Sookie is lying in bed when Alcide calls her into the living room. He steps aside, revealing Bill standing there. She runs and jumps into his arms (cue their beautiful love theme by Nathan Barr). He has no time to explain, but she has to leave immediately. It’s too late, though. Coot breaks down the door and in comes a hulking vamp to restrain Bill, and Russell (I want to know why Coot was able to invite them in when he doesn’t live there). Coot chases Sookie, but she forces him off with her electro hand shock. And Russell couldn’t be more delighted to see that.

Based on the previews, the drama in Russell’s mansion continues to heat up next week. What will Eric do now that he’s in the presence of the one responsible for his family’s death 1,000 years ago? How will Sookie escape everyone who’s out to hurt her (Russell, Lorena, Coot, Debbie, could this list get any longer)? Will Tara become a vampire?

Ok, everyone, let’s hear it–what did you think about “Trouble“?

    Wow Sandy! What an eventful life! Sorry you had to leave OZ, but at least you still have a connection!

    Yes, Coot is an Aussie Were!

  • lizzie1701

    Sandy! What is your connection to OZ?? Are you an Aussie or just lived here? My sister lives in Brisbane and my brother lives on the Sunshine Coast. I’m in Sydney but come from Maitland, in the Hunter Valley. At least you are in the same temperature zone!

    • Sandy

      I moved there as a teenager, married an Aussie and now duel citizen. My children were born duel citizens too. I lived there for over a decade and didnt want to leave – just my ex husband (the mentioned Aussie) didnt take our seperation very well and tried to kill me in front of the kids. Family pressure to move back to the US is the reason I am here now. Although I was born in Chicago and lived in SoCali before moving to the Gold Coast.
      Now have a young daughter (eldest is almost 21, second is almost 17) that is 7 – she was only one born in the US.
      Miss home tho (Australia will always be home – even my Aussie mates consider me more Aussie than Yank). Still close with Aussie inlaws – one cousin is touring here now (doing Los Angeles dates atm) with his band and will be coming to visit (and plays a date near by) and my ex-mother in law stays with us when she comes out. This year she will be staying with my Mother in Mississippi (MS/LA boarder) in November.

      • OMG, Sandy! Your kids are the ages of myself and my younger sister! LOL (No third sibling in my family, though…)

        • Sandy

          Thanks Isis – way to make a girl feel old LMAO! I’m still in my 30’s tho 😉 (late 30’s….)
          J/k about feeling old. Cest la vie! At least I still get hit on…although sometimes it’s a bit much. (had a guy block my pulling out from a parking spot the other day to blow me kisses *sigh* Freaked my 16yr old out and I said welcome to my world…)

    • Sandy

      In case anyone missed it – the actor that plays Coot is an Aussie too!
      Feel the Aussie love 😉

  • Sandy

    Thanks for the comic con info! Just checked it out. WOW on HBO’s preview for the second half! Does NOT look boring. Amazing.

  • pbt

    Good Afternoon All!

    Welcome Sandy and all of the new posters.

    33 hours and counting until the “v-ddiction continues”

    Wonderful speculating about all the possible story lines and sub plots of this season. It all appears to be heading towards Russell Edgington as the master mind of all. JMO here, but I am thinking that Russell is interested in finding out about Sookie Stackhouse and her “fae” blood and not just telepathy. The dossier found at Bill’s with Sophie Anne’s (overstated perfume-loved that line)it appears they want the same thing.

    Russell and even Sophie Anne have connections to magic.Her conversations with Ludais and Hadley while playing Yahtzee were an indication.

    You could really see Russell working this over in his mind. Both working on a “spell” for the ultimate vampire dream. Walking during daylight and still remaining a vampire would fit that idea. Just speculating of course, but I could see this fitting into all of the plots that are related in the season.

    On another subject, does anyone think that Russell knows who Eric is? The way Russell pushed Eric towards Talbot asking him to take the entire tour of the mansion was quite interesting. Russell must have known that Eric would see the crown. Just speculating and wonder what other people thought about Russell. The vamp obviously lies like water and it just spews out of his mouth so easily. Lies to Eric’s face in one breath and continues his conversation in the next and does a total 180 degrees.

    Tomorrow night’s episode should absolutely great. So much drama on tap with Bill staking the vampire guard. Russell and Eric visiting the Magister at Fangtasia and asking for Pam to be released. “The only law is the law of nature.” That should be fun. The magister is the vamp you love to hate. And then Russell making his impassioned proposal to Sophie Anne as Eric holds her down. Oh my, we are already through half of the season it just keeps getting better and better.

    • jaxx

      Hi pbt. I also think that Russell knows who Eric is. I didn’t buy the fact that Russell asked Lorena who Eric was. If he was interested in the queen of LA that much, he’d have to do his research and know who the queen aligns herself with. I would imagine he’d at least know who the sheriffs in her queendom are. There would only be about 5 or 6 of them in the area. The question is why did Russell decide to let Eric live after he slaughtered his whole family? You would think Russell would know Eric would want vengeance at least in his human life. Why not just kill him too??? He couldn’t have known Eric would be turned into a vamp at some point,could he? Does anyone think Russell has some connection to Godric??

      I’ve been thinking about this for a while now and just going out on a limb here, but Russell is older than Godric, did Godric at some point have an allegiance with Russell?? Could Godric have been watching Eric for Russell??? Godric and Eric were hunting the Nazi werewolves, but I think it’s funny that they never found out who their leader was after all that time. RE and Godric are only 800 years apart in age. They must have run into each other at some point in time. *shrugs* Speculations anyone??

      • Sandy

        Intriguing!! We do not know made Godric. Maybe it was Russell? Maybe Godric (and I thought that there would be a connection too) had been watching Eric for some time.
        I think Eric will find be able to reconcile what happened with his family without killing Russell.
        Sandy who cannot wait till Sunday 9pm est!!

        • Sandy

          Ugh should have proof read….
          *who made Godric
          *Eric will be able to reconcile

        • Sandy, the “who made Godric” was a question asked in the True Blood panel yesterday… Watch the videos to see what Alan said! 🙂

          • Sandy

            Funny – I wrote that before the panel started. Didnt even remember it was this weekend! Not a very good “supa-fan” tee-hee.

          • Sandy

            correction. Not b4 panel started, thought it was today. Doh!

      • pbt

        Waving to Jaxx. Yes, I thought Russell was lying to Lorena. Russell seems to be a very thorough vamp. He would know all about QSA Queendom. He would know who the sheriffs are and even about Bill’s piece of the puzzle. I think this is just another example of his lies. He is good. Really really good at it.But he has almost 3000 years of practice.

        Did Godric and Russell know one another? You would think so. I mean Godric was sheriff one state over and both being really old they must have know each other. Godric working for Russell. Wow, didn’t even think of that. Not sure. I think all of this wrangling is an ultimate plan on Russell’s part to get to the Viking. JMO. Something is going on here under the surface of the story. I really don’t think this is about V sales and Kingdoms/Queendoms. Perhaps Russell has his own axe to grind with Godric but since he is no longer alive now with his child.

        Perhaps Godric somehow blocked Russell from obtaining something he really wanted. Russell is a greedy boy. He sees what he wants and takes it. Perhaps this all about Eric and Russell. Perhaps Russell wanted Eric from Godric but Godric refused. Nothing like a man scorned.

        Oh so much fun and I am totally sure that none of this will pan out. But still fun.

  • lizzie1701

    Hi Sandy, nice to meet you! I post at funny times because I am from the Land Down Under and we sometimes do not match timelines.

    I am a die hard Bill fan. Always love him regardless of what he looks like or what he does. Even loved him in the books. I will never change my allegiance – never. I like Eric, but as a bad arse who is funny and quirky. I do not want him with Sookie. Sookie does tend to pussy whip her guys and do you want to see Eric that way? I think not. Or then, maybe you do. Don’t know.
    I am loveing this Bill from S3!! I loved Bill in S1 where he was unpredictable and now we are getting him back twicefold!!! I also love his makeup and clothing this season – love the trackie outfit!

    irt that blood scene at RE’s, speculation is that Bill stakes that security guard with the post from the staircase. You know what this will mean, don’t you!!! Talbot will go crazy that a part of the furniture is damaged and covered in blood! he wil squeal!!!

    Funny thing about those preview teasers, is that they are not in order or that bits in between are missing! Mongrels!!

    Anyhow, not long to wait until next episode. I just can’t believe that we are heading to the half way mark!! Then another 9 months of drudgery trying to grasp any news we can for S4!! Oh! The Pain!

    • Sandy

      Interesting Lizzie!! I’m a duel citizen. My children were born in Southport Queensland Australia.
      But now I sadly live in North East Florida instead of Southeast Queensland.
      Cheers m8

  • lizzie1701

    Hi Nia and Jaxx,

    Great speculating!! irt Sookie’s family, it looked like Gran knew stuff but was not letting Sookie know anymore than that her Grandfather had a gift etc. There was something fishy there and Sookie, whilst walking up the stairs queried something (about how or when her Grandad or reli died) and Gran came back with a quick response which kind of satisfied Sookie a bit. Will have to revisit that ep in S1. Also, it appeared both Sookie’s parents were unaware of what Sookie’s gift was, as it scared them and they sent her to a child psych who said she had ADHD or however it is written. Also, I am curious about this ‘flash flood’ that killed the parents!

  • lizzie1701

    Hi Jaxx and to anyone else I offended during the wee hours of this morning, after going to numerous sites and seeing the same comment on how dare Bill be st stupid to lead RE & Co to Sookie that I just lost it and had to let everyone know that it was not so!

    I am back to being peaceful Lizzie again!

  • lizzie1701

    Sorry Sandy, accept my apologies. Getting “old” is something I picked up from Eric lovers re Bill and Sookie romance or things about Bill. I thought I would use it for a change, but obviously does not work in reverse! LOL!

    Peace!!!! It is good to get other perspectives, so stay and debate a while! We are all friends! Just get heated up some on our views!

    • Sandy

      Thank you for such a lovely post.
      I can understand that the hard core Eric people probably did flock here made all the assumptions, made it old and are mostly gone now. At the same time I can see their point of view via the 1st season when they made him out to be the villian. (when Bill and Eric, both are “good and evil” in equal measure).
      I do wish they would continue to show SM as they have lately and not turn him back into “unmodern” Bill. The make-up, forced lines and old fasioned clothes didnt do him justice, he looks much better this season!
      The next episode shows what looks like – Bill killing a vamp in RE’s foyer (you can see the broken stair case and blood all over the floor) it’s just scrambled and hard to tell – it’s not Talbot tho as in the clip you can see both Talbot and Sookie with their mouths open as they watch. It’s probably not RE either – maybe Franklin? Maybe Coot – due to the large amounts of vamp blood over the years? Hmmm. (it’s not Bill’s maker because she is on the stair-case with her mouth agape too).
      There is so much story, suspense and fun going on at RE’s home that going back to BT story lines is like MA’s last year! Last year tho Sam and co were at least funny to watch!!
      Love the theories going about that Jesus is Claude. Maybe. Just can’t see Claude being a “care-giver” to Ruby-Jean (or anyone else). Claudine cannot pop in to save Sookie in the middle of a vamps nest – she would be risking both of their lives then!
      With the up coming pre-view you can get a half way decent time line just by looking at Eric’s sweater – part of the time it’s clean (when yelling at Sookie) the other time it has blood splatters and he has blood all over his mouth – then he has a clean face but same blood splatter over that darling sweater. HMMM.
      Lovely to meet you Lizzie – I’m not a Bill hater 😉 no matter how much I adore Eric 😉 So lets start a clean slate!
      Cheers m8

      • pbt

        Sandy, What’s not to love about that beautiful blue cashmere sweater from J Crew. So clingy and all. Perhaps Eric will have to take it off and change into something more wonderful :)We can only hope.

        Yes, promos have shown the sweater at Fangtasia with no splatters so I suspect that Russell and Eric pay a visit to the Magister for Pam’s release.

        Then off to Sophie Anne’s for a little marriage proposal a la blackmail I think. Poor Sophie Anne. The magister on one side and Russell on the other side. Its hard being Queen. *Note sarcasm here*

  • Bob

    “don’t say that: when I hear that everything goes black then I’m surrounded by body parts,” Awesome.

    • pbt

      That was a great line Bob. Franklin has so many of those lines this year. James Frain is awesome as Franklin the psycho fugly vamp. LOL

  • Antonio el hombre lobo

    OK I’m concerned about Sookie being taken by RE. He told Bill that Sookie would “pay” for His arrogance. I know that what Bill did he did out of love and concern for Sookie..He would have even let her leave with Alcide just to get her away from there!
    I think that shows a great deal of character on Bill’s part~~He he maybe that he could trust Sookie with Alcide? Anyway, I know that Bill did this to try and protect Sookie…Was it wise? I think not because Now RE has confirmation that Bill’s loyalties are divided! However, There is this whole thing on Sookie’s family being watched for who knows how long?
    It looks to me like someone is trying to track the telepathic “gift” probably for personal gain and to use to their own advantage. RE was right when he asked “Who keeps a dossier on their human?” Who does?? Its patently obvious that QSA was “keeping an eye” on Sookie And Her Family!
    There is Some monitoring going on here!
    Now, There are Some who think that Hadley had told QSA about Sookie…Ok a plausible theory. However, Who told her about Adele and Earle? Corbett and Michellle(Sookie’s parents)
    Who told her about Earle’s parents and grandparents??
    Its obvious that there was a pretty long drawn out family tree to keep track of a “family gift”??
    Now Why did Bill have this information in his possesion?
    If he Really loved Sookie then why the mystery??
    Why not tell her the truth? “Sookie I was sent by the vampire queen of LA to aquire you But i’m not going to follow through with it I love you!”
    Why would he hold on to that info and keep it locked away where she could not see it??
    Its apparent that QSA was “watching” this family for years Before Sookie was born! So Many questions!!
    I like Bill I always have. He Is still My favorite character!
    Even though Eric,Alcide,Coot,Sookie,Jessica and Tara and Sam are still in my top 10! LOL
    I just dont know if I like this “secretive” side to Billy!
    What gives? What is he hiding??
    It makes me wonder Where his Real allegiance is?? To SA??
    Maybe just maybe and this is a long shot here….If Bill remained with SA then he would not have been abducted??
    Remember she did Not want to let him leave!
    Oh! Horrible thought! I’m sorry I just remembered if he Had remained with SA then Sookie and Sam would have been killed by MA!! Bad idea Sorry!!! LOL

    My question here now:: WHY SO Secretive,Billy!!!

    As i had said I’m concerned about Sookie I hope she isnt tortured or made to suffer because of Bill’s “arroagnce” toward RE!! Man! Where’s Van Helsing when you need him?? LMAO
    No Offense…..:)
