True Blood Season 2 Spoiler: Episode 12 Synopsis

August 24, 2009 by  

true-blood-bill-sookie-ep-10According to SpoilerTV, HBO has released the True Blood Season 2 Episode 12, Beyond Here Lies Nothin’ synopsis.  It is hard to believe that the season finale is so close and it looks like we are going to be left hanging until its return in the summer of 2010.  So not to keep you waiting any longer here is the storyline for the season finale:

Bon Temps reaches a fever pitch as Maryann prepares for her ultimate bestial sacrifice, conscripting Sookie to be Maid of Honor at the bloody nuptials. Meanwhile, Sophie-Anne warns Eric to keep the lid on Bill’s inquisitiveness; Jason leads Andy into the heroic abyss; and Hoyt struggles with Maxine’s endless stream of insults. Deliberating on what may be his final move to save Sookie and the town, Sam places his trust, and his life, in a most unlikely ally.

Now after reading this synopsis it probably created more questions then answers in people’s mind (I know it did for me. What do they mean by saying Sophie-Anne warns Eric to keep the lid on Bill’s inquisitiveness)?  The season finale is gearing up to be unforgettable.

  • The Maryann story has by far been the weak link this season and it was glaring in the season finale. It was completely anticlimactic and uninspiring, and the events after were totally pointless. Full review of the episode on my blog.

    ***Her comments do, but I just don’t see it in her actions. And what Eric did to Lafayette? That’s vampire business.***

    That may be vampire business, but Sookie isn’t exactly the kind of girl who would take that as sufficient reason for someone to torture her friend.

    ***And Eric let her find him – you don’t think he’d leave Sookie in that bar with GINGER if he didn’t want Lafayette found? Yes, he knew he was a chip, but Lafayette easily could have gone the way of Royce.***

    What’s a chip? With respect to Eric leaving Sookie with Ginger, even a devious vampire like Eric can make mistakes. He was preoccupied with, and quite upset by, Godric going missing, after all.

    ***On top of it all, Eric did save Lafayette’s life in the end. With ulterior motive, but he did it.***

    The ulterior motive really takes all the nobility out of it, as far as I’m concerned.

    *** Yes, I was agreeing with you :-)***

    Ah, okay. 🙂

    ***Killing people for Sookie doesn’t change the fact that he kills when HE wants to.***

    I’m not saying it’s a great trait, by any stretch, but the motive for doing something always has a bearing on the thing itself. I’m sure he could have hunted down the Rattrays after they tried to drain him – it wouldn’t be hard to glamor someone into giving him their address – but he didn’t kill them to get revenge for himself. He killed them when they were attacking Sookie. He tracked down Uncle Bartlett and killed him because he hurt Sookie – again, not that that was morally correct, but it was for her that he did it, not himself.

    ****** I don’t think Eric was lying. He always has more than one motive. He was right in this instance.***

    Bill wasn’t the one who blew the rescue. It was already well blown by the time he got there. Maybe if he hadn’t been trapped in the hotel room when Sookie was first taken he could have got into the compound and back out without all the chaos. Not to mention, if Sookie had listened to Bill in the first place and not gone into the church, she wouldn’t have been in that situation. But Eric sent her in there like a sacrificial lamb, because he was so intent on finding Godric that he didn’t have any concern for anyone else.

    And even if Eric had been right about Bill, that doesn’t change the fact that he was having Bill held prisoner. Also, it’s the fact that one of Eric’s motives always serves him that makes me doubt his feelings.

    ****Yes, willingly chained in silver when he could have taken out everyone in that church. Remember how fast Godric could kill at Eric’s age?***

    As he said to Sookie, he was following his maker’s orders (“Spill no blood on your way out”), which he obviously takes very seriously. When Royce took silver to him he ripped the guy apart.

    ****But he would have if he ran into that church like that before. What choice would he have had. He is, as Eric says, not logical when it comes to Sookie.***

    No, it’s true. He’s not always logical when it comes to Sookie, but that’s because he’s madly in love with her. And honestly I wouldn’t really have blamed him if he had taken a round out of a bunch of them, because the fact is, they all would have stood around while Steve tied Sookie to Eric, and watched while they both burned to death.

    ***Bill never has an endgame.***

    This is rather OT, I realize, but this is one of the reasons why I have my doubts that AB is going to go with the betrayal story the way it’s set up in the books. You’re absolutely right. Bill never has an endgame, never really thinks things through (how he thought he could kill Uncle Bartlett and not have Sookie put 2 + 2 together mystifies me), shoots off his mouth and nearly gets himself into trouble a lot, is a terrible liar with no talent for deceit, and at the beginning of the series, had no real understanding of how to interact with humans beyond falling back on his southern gentleman manners. So why would anyone with two brain cells to rub together choose him to seduce Sookie? (The justification in the books was that he used to live in Bon Temp, but since he hadn’t been there for years and didn’t know anyone who lived there, that doesn’t really seem to hold water.) You’d have to go a long way to find someone worse for the job than he would be.

    ***He just knows how to get things done. What I love about this show, is that these people are who they are before they are turned. Eric is a Viking. His life has been straightforward and brutal for over 1000 years.***

    But Eric isn’t so straightforward anymore. He’s conniving, and he plays games, and you can never tell exactly what his deal is, except to be sure that it will always benefit him first and foremost.

    ***Bill is a southern gentleman steeped in the kind lies of gentle life. They act like that.***

    I’ll agree that he is very much a southern gentleman, and yes, he does tend to tell the kind of genteel lies that would have been the custom back in the day. You can see that when he lies to Lorena, when she tells him her husband fought at Shiloh and she hasn’t heard from him in months, and he tries to make her feel better by telling her that her husband’s letters have probably just gotten lost. But just because he tells ‘little white lies’ for the sake of kindness, doesn’t mean that he’s deceitful by nature. I’d say it’s partly because, as a human man, he had a gentle heart, and partly because, as a product of the 1850’s south, he never learned how to deal with awkward or emotional situations, and when he gets into a situation that’s outside of his comfort zone, rather than talk about it he tries to avoid dealing with it for as long as he can. Like when he told Sookie that killing Longshadow would earn him a simple slap on the wrist, when he knew there was a good chance he was going to get into a lot of trouble. I can’t really say that I blame him, either. I mean, how do you tell someone that you’re going to wind up in a ton of trouble for saving their life?

    *** It is fun to debate. I thank you – I see these things get so brutal on other boards,and I’m just not interested :-)***

    Thank you, too. And I agree wholeheartedly. Here’s to fun debate, and agreeing to disagree. 🙂

    ***People, AB has already said the triangle is going to play out in various interviews.***

    At ComicCon, when asked if the triangle would follow the arc of the book, he said, simply, yes, and refused to say anything more. But it’s obvious that wasn’t the entire truth, because, although the triangle is there, it certainly isn’t the same. In the book, by the time Bill and Sookie got back from Dallas, they had broken up, and Bill was running around with Andy’s sister. On the show, not only are they not broken up, they’re learning how to work together as a team. So just because the triangle is there, doesn’t mean it’s going to play out the same way as it does in the books.

    ***Also at Comic Con he deliciously hints that he is going to use the betrayal in the books (as someone who has read and loves the books, this is to frustrating as there are several key plots his hint could be applied to).***

    Since he’s changed Bill and Eric so much as characters, giving Bill the job of staking Longshadow instead of Eric doing it, having Bill go to bat for Sookie’s new driveway, rather than having Eric give her the money as a kindness, playing Eric darker and Bill more honorable, would it really be so far outside the realm of believability for him to have Eric be the betrayer instead of Bill? With the way the story has gone so far, that would not surprise me in the least.
