True Blood Season 3 Music: Episode 7 “Hitting the Ground”

August 2, 2010 by  

Episode number seven of True Blood‘s third season exploded like a Magister‘s head hitting the…well, the ground. Come on. When you have a relatively major character killed before the opening credits, you know it’s going to be intense. There’s a rather short soundtrack list that follows suit with the shorter episode. Below you’ll find the rest of the tracks used in episode 6, season 3, “Hitting the Ground,” along with the artist and plot point during the episode at which the song was played.
