True Blood Quickie: True Blood Season 7 Episode 7 “May Be the Last Time” Recap

August 4, 2014 by  

Here’s what went down in Episode 7 (entitled May Be the Last Time and previously known as One Last Time) of HBO’s True Blood Season 7:

  • Niall Brigant (Rutger Hauer) and Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) catch up in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 7 (entitled 'May Be the Last Time')Amber (Natalie Hall) is getting interrogated by Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard), Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) and Mr. Gus (Will Yun Lee) as to the whereabouts of her sister, Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp). This doesn’t go too well when Eric sees Sarah’s face instead of Amber’s and stakes her. But that’s okay because apparently Big Brother is way more advanced than we thought and Mr. Gus uses satellite navigation to track Sarah down as she is having a meltdown at the now abandoned Light of Day Institute. Seems she is hallucinating remembering her past and Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) is getting his nasty on and telling her she will be dead by dawn. Sarah then has to battle her other hallucinations: Steve Newlin (Michael McMillian), the guru and the severed head of the Governor (Arliss Howard). There is a battle raging for Sarah’s soul – or so she thinks. She tells them though – since she is the antidote now – she is the new Messiah! But not for long, since Eric, Pam and Mr. Gus have now arrived…
  • Andy (Chris Bauer) and Holly (Lauren Bowles) are still looking for Adilyn (Bailey Noble) and Wade (Noah Matthews). They’re not at Fort Bellefleur and they are certainly not at Holly’s ex’s lake house in Oklahoma. That’s because Violet (Karolina Wydra) has spirited them away to her 50 Shades playroom extravagant mansion. When Violet goes to sleep, Adilyn and Wade both hand in their V cards. Which is nice, because once Violet wakes up, it’s time for her to throw Wade across the room and chain up Adilyn. Now we know why Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) asked Adilyn to taste her blood all those episodes ago…
  • Jessica, Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) are all being miserable at Bill’s house. Sookie still thinks she can find a cure, but Jess doesn’t seem to think so. While the vampires sleep, Sookie gets to work. Since she thinks it’s her fae blood that is accelerating Bill’s Hep-V status, she calls in the big guns – or one that comes in a small package and a mighty big Hummer anyway. Enter Dr. Ludwig (Marcia DeRousse)! Dr. L is just as adorably cranky as the last time we saw her but her only advice is that maybe Bill’s case is accelerated by Sookie’s faeness, but not likely as she knows of someone who has been infected by a full fairy and their case is not as extreme as Bill’s. Just as we are settling into Dr. L’s lack of bedside manner, Sookie drops her fairy lineage and Dr. Ludwig leaves in a hurry. It seems Niall Brigant (Rutger Hauer) may, or may not have (but definitely has) come from a line of dwarf killers.
  • Speaking of, Sookie then summons Niall who is even less helpful than we thought the fairy might be. Or is he? It seems that maybe Sookie should just forgive herself for giving Bill Hep-V and get on with the miracle of life. *insert Bill flashback to the birth of his first child here* Has HBO been trying to tell us in all these flashbacks that Caroline (Shannon Lucio) is Bill’s one true love? This doesn’t really sit too well with Sookie and she asks Niall to leave after that.
  • Arlene (Carrie Preston) finally gets her sex dream with her vampire savior, Keith (Riley Smith). Lucky for him it’s only a dream though as Arlene is now, obviously, Hep-V positive.
  • Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) grapples with whether to stay or leave with Nicole (Jurnee Smollett-Bell). Arlene offers some advice. I still have no idea which way this story line will end.
  • Nu Blood – it’s like Tru Blood, just with Sarah Newlin’s blood and not the added Hep-V.
  • Hoyt Fortenberry (Jim Parrack) finally arrives from Alaska. In tow he has his gorgeous and smart new girlfriend, Bridget. So, of course, when Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) arrives, he is immediately coveting his ex-besties new girlfriend. The Hoyt and Jason moments are poignant as Jason lies about how Hoyt’s mother died. Jason ogling Hoyt’s girlfriend, not so nice – hasn’t he learned already?
  • Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) and Lettie Mae (Adina Porter) are digging in the yard of Lettie’s old house, looking for whatever it is that Tara (Rutina Wesley) wanted them to find. Shame they didn’t knock on the door and ask the current owners first though…
  • We finish this episode where we started all those years ago: with Sookie running through the cemetery in a white dress and then having sex with Bill in front of a raging fire. All the Team Bill fans out there are now worried that this hook up is way too early to come to any good – is Bill really going to meet the true death this time?
