True Blood Season 5 Episode 4 “We’ll Meet Again” Recap

July 4, 2012

The Blame Sookie Episode:

Bloody Roman in Season 5, Episode 4 of HBO's True BloodWoo-Hoo! It’s nice to finally see that Pam’s makerly instincts kick in with the start of  Episode 4 of HBO’s True Blood. And frankly, it’s a relief to see everything Eric has taught her has sunk in over the years. Pam teaches Tara, in her own special Pam-style way the art of being a vampire.

While things may be looking up for Tara and her torment, it seems that it’s time for Sookie to be down in the dumps. This episode finds her in typical Sookie trouble, only this time she’s in hot water with her friend Lafayette. This leads to not only conflict between the two of them but also the appearance of another nasty bout of Lafayette’s inner demons resurfacing. The inner demon goes a step further this week, and his actions lead to a car wreck for Sookie. Luckily she has the gumption to jump clear and save herself, just in the nick of time! Seems that Lafayette is still oblivious to his darker side when he calls later to check up on Sookie after discovering her smashed car.

It’s nice to find Bill and Eric ‘free’ for the first time in Season 5. But their release comes with a price – find Russell Edgington… or else. They also need to find out who ratted on them to the Authority. After a scary interrogation of Pam by Eric, Pam is able to convince Eric that his mistrust is misplaced.  The realization that Eric’s involvement with the Authority could lead to the true death of his progeny forces Eric to make a very difficult decision, whereby he releases Pam’s allegiance and fealty to him, as her maker.  It is a heart-wrenching scene which demonstrates the depth of the love that is shared between Maker and child. We know he is doing it to save her, but it sure hurts to see what appears to be the end of their journey together.

Even with Pam released, Bill and Eric still need to find their weakest link, or at least find the bug that provided the information to the Authority. While Jessica helps Bill search their house for bugs, her partying ways are discovered when Bill comes across a joint. While he may not have been the best of Makers at the start, it is clear to see that his role as Maker has developed into one where he provides guidance rather than dictates over Jessica.

Roman and Salome decide that Nora must either ‘fess up or be made an example of to the Sanguinistas. In the process of Salome trying to find out Nora’s true motives, Bill and Eric almost get the iStake. The threat of the lives of Bill and Eric forces Nora to finally fess up and provide the name of another internal traitor! Unfortunately for the traitor, he isn’t so lucky…

Things get interesting when Sookie confesses to her brother, Jason Stackhouse, that she killed Debbie. Luckily Jason doesn’t have to arrest his own sister when Jessica overhears and saves the day by glamouring Sheriff Andy Bellefleur.

Pam, after prohibiting Tara from killing herself, takes her back to Fangtasia. Here Tara and Bill have a fascinating conversation about being a new vampire. I must admit, I am preferring the character of Tara as a strung out vampire rather than a strung out human! Once again, the idea that people die (or nearly die) trying to keep Sookie safe is brought up. Seems more than one person is peeved at our fave little blonde waitress.

While Eric and Bill are discussing the implications of a leak within their inner circle, the Authority are discussing whether they have been duped by the pair. More hints at cracks from within the Authority are also suggested in this scene. Who is really, truly on Roman’s side?

We are then introduced to an interesting developing story line that first was introduced when Andy was seduced by a faerie last season. Turns out they have a secret burlesque-type club and Andy and Jason are invited to go. Looks like a fun place to be, especially for Jason.

Sam gets a daytime visit from his shifter friends. They convince Sam he should run with them. Of course, things turn out differently to what he expects when he turns up later on at their house and finds them both dead — what is going on there?

This scene segues into Sookie reading the minds of everyone around her at Merlotte’s. Turns out that absolutely everyone is mad at her in this episode! Add this to Lafayette’s ‘encouraged’ car malfunction, we find a very drunk Sookie at home when Alcide drops in for a visit. A hilarious drunken scene occurs, culminating in a kiss which is witnessed by Bill and Eric!

Speaking of Alcide, he confesses to the Pelts that their daughter, Debbie, is dead. He mostly manages to make the story fit without laying a finger of blame on Sookie.

We also find Terry and his marine friend, Patrick, on the road and searching for another member of their squad — the one who may possibly be responsible for all the fires that are occurring. An ugly flashback occurs here where we find the squad guilty of killing innocent civilians — is this their deep dark secret? Or is there more to the story still? The pair of them being held at gun point by the possible fire-bug in their squadron thickens the plot somewhat also.

Next, we find out who the rat in the Authority is. Many people cheered at home, I’m sure, when they found out that the annoying little vampire is the traitor. Not only did he take a video of himself draining a human, but he sent it, along with an encrypted sympathy message, to known opposition of the Authority. Needless to say he meets the final death and it is a magnificent bloodbath!

We end this episode with Jason, still in the faerie bar, where he finds his cousin, Hadley, serving drinks. Seems this club is more of a safe haven for faeries and part-faeries who want to keep their intoxicating blood safe from vampires. Hadley tries to convince Jason that he needs to bring Sookie here and lets it slip that Jason and Sookie’s parents were, in fact, killed by vampires. After a heated incident, Jason and Andy find themselves ejected from the club and left stranded in a field out in the middle of nowhere.

The last image we see is of Andy and Jason being light-zapped by faeries. Can’t wait to see where they end up next week. If you have any suggestions, let us know in the comments below.

HBO a Two-Time Tease with True Blood Season 5 Trailer

June 2, 2012

More Revealed with Second Trailer for Season 5:

Bill, Eric, Nora season5A second trailer for True Blood’s Season 5 was released by HBO. This one runs a minute, twenty-two seconds and, where the first trailer focused on potential conflict with the Vampire Authority, this one sets the scene for the return of Russell Edgington.

Initial narration for the trailer is dialog from Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) as he confronts Sookie (Anna Paquin) with the reality that death seems to follow her, despite her attempts to avoid it. Dialog voiceover accompanies subsequent scenes of newly-rescued Russell Edgington (Denis O’Hare) being hidden as he heals. Alcide (Joe Manganiello), still acting as Sookie’s protector, tells her of Eric and Bill’s deception.

If the Vampire Authority isn’t enough to reunite Sookie with her vampire suitors, Russell’s reappearance seems to be. With Russell apparently coming for her, Sookie is forced to team up with Eric Northman (Alex Skarsgård) and Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer), apparently against her wishes.

Fans are still left wondering what has become of Tara. A second question this trailer leaves everyone asking; who freed Russell from the concrete? This very question seems to have created a rift between Eric and Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten). Does Eric truly believe Pam would betray him?

There’s Something Going On With Jason, Andy and Reverend Steve

This second trailer makes it seem as though Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) and Andy Bellefleur (Chris Bauer) have had all they can take of vampires. With Steve Newlin (Michael McMillian) in the picture once again, will he keep the Bon Temps police occupied? Or will they set their sights on Bill and Eric? Or worse, yet — Jessica.

What questions does the trailer leave you asking? Is that possibly Jesus we see? What kind of trouble is Sam in, now? The white finger-light is back. Can Sookie control it now?

True Blood Season 5 Poster – Lafayette!

May 24, 2012

HBO's True Blood's Lafayette Reynolds played by Nelsan Ellis poster

Less Than 30 Days to True Blood Season 5!

The posters are out for the HBO True Blood stars for season five! There will be one for each actor and we at TrueBloodNet.com have decided to present one per post in order to give each it’s own top billing. At the end of the first season, True Blodo fans were freaked out that Alan Ball had killed off fan favorite Merlotte’s hillarious and touching out-of-the-closet chef, Lafayette Reynolds. Lafayette is played brilliantly by Nelsan Ellis and when the body in the back of the car turned out NOT to be Lafayette but the scammer VooDoo woman, Twitterdom went wild (and Opossums everywhere celebrated!) But last season, Lafayette’s lover Jesus taught him how to use his latent medium abilities. Sadly, Jesus didn’t make it through the season alive and Lafayette will really be alone this season with both his cousin and his lover passed over to the other side. On the other hand, every night could be a séance at Lafayette’s house. You just know he’s going to be offering Tarot readings in his spare time. Hey, he has to recover his income now that he’s not selling V any more!

True Blood’s Nelsan Ellis on Playing a Character Within a Character

September 30, 2011

Lafayette on Being Possessed:

Nelsan Ellis as Lafayette ReynoldsNelsan Ellis, who plays Lafayette Reynolds on HBO’s True Blood, shared his experience on playing a character within a character.

On Lafayette’s major dose of possession, Ellis said:

“I talked a lot to Fiona and tried to figure out what “possession” meant to me. I realize that I don’t become the person- the person becomes me. They get into a body where the mechanics are already there… I tried to figure out what subtle nuances I could take from [Mavis] that would remind the audience of who she was inside of me but also stay true to what Lafayette is, what his body does and the fact that he’s still there.”

On why trouble always seems to find Lafayette, Ellis said:

“Because he knows what to do with it… Lafayette is a survivor. Trouble comes, and then he surmounts it and moves on. I don’t know why he has all these problems. He got on this moving train that just won’t stop, and it just takes him deeper and deeper. I just hope he calms down next season.”

We do too! But will he? My psychic senses are screaming: NO!

True Blood’s Nelsan Ellis’s Predictions About “The Help”

September 14, 2011

Lafayette Chats About the Number 1 Movie in the Country:

Nelsan Ellis is True Blood’s Lafayette ReynoldsThe Help, starring Emma Stone and Viola Davis, has literally taken the country by storm. After scoring big at the box office, multiple predictions have been made when it comes to the nominations The Help may possibly receive when the awards season rolls around. A face familiar to True Blood’s fans was spotted in The Help. Nelsan Ellis, who plays Lafayette Reynolds on True Blood, played a small role as a waiter. Ellis has big predictions for the film.

In regards to whether he thought the film would get a Best Picture nomination, Ellis said:

“It will, and it’ll probably win. Viola Davis is probably going to win the Oscar for that. How often do you see a performance where the actor is that dynamic, even without speaking? Her and Emma Stone are my favorite parts in The Help.”

Ellis also admitted that playing Lafayette while he was being possessed with Marnie was not an easy thing to do, in fact, he had to create someone and something else. Ellis added that the most exciting part of the finale is the cliffhangers.

“This year, it’s on a different scale. When we all read the script, we were like, ‘What?!’ The cliffhangers take it to another level. You’ll see, and it’ll throw you for a loop, and then you all will have to wait for eight months!”

It’s going to be a very long and torturous eight months Truebies

Thanks to Jennifer Vineyard for her contribution!

Top Quotes from Episode 10 “Burning Down the House”

September 4, 2011

Last Sunday night’s episode of HBO’s True  Blood was explosive and showed viewers the true faces of the best characters TV has ever seen. This episode had me cheering like a football fan on the edge of my seat. The looks on some of our character’s faces were priceless. Here is our list of top quotes right from the first scene.

 Lights, Camera, Action:

Marnie and Roy S4 Ep10

 “It’s like pouring boiling water on fire ants!”

One of the crazy followers of Antonia/Marnie. Maybe someone should tell him these ants don’t die and when they bite they really bite.

“Well, listen to you. God. Talk about bromance.”

Yes, Jessica, the love affair between Hoyt and Jason is respectable. Jason is such a good guy at heart. We can totally tell how much he struggled with his feelings for Jessica.

“A few stitches, little duct tape, pretty nurse, you’ll be good to go.”

Alcide to Tommy while he was in immense pain. They do say duct tape fixes everything except for a broken heart right?

“I am not going to die in Wiccan shit store with them. I REFUSE.”

No one can blame Tara for that comment, the whining would have me preferring Antonia’s wrath.

“This is your fault, all of it, and that is exactly what I’m going to tell the authority.”

Wooo Hooo, Bill finally gave it to Nan.

Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård) S4 Ep10

“When you were about to kill him, I just couldn’t bear the thought of a world without him in it. I think it was how I was able to stop you. I love you. I don’t want to lie to you, but I can’t help it. I love him too.”

This comment from Sookie to Eric could sum up the entire last two seasons, especially this one. How heartbreaking it was to hear her say those words which were both painful and completely honest. I don’t know who I hurt for more?

“Well, they bet on the wrong horse. It’s too bad.”

Now there is the Eric we know and love… yeah, Eric, we wonder who is more “lovable”, you or Bill.

Family Ties

Marcus Bozeman is a dead f***ing wolf.”

I loved seeing the bad guy come out in Sam. I just wish his little brother didn’t have to die in order to see it.

“Then he drank 11 of my beers — passed out and started fartin’. Continuously.”

I almost spit my wine out, and I don’t waste wine. This was so funny and Jason obviously has no sympathy for Hoyt.

“You sure?  Looks like you been sucking down V like it’s mother’s milk.”

This whole conversation between Terry and Andy was great. Perfectly written for both of their characters and a great addition to show how much they truly care about each other.

“Whatever. If she would have got-damn let her parakeet rest in peace, then Eric Northman and Bill Compton wouldn’t be marching on Moon Goddess to BLOW up my only  f***ing cousin!”

Man, we love almost everything Lafayette says.

“Yeah I speak Latin, I need it for my job!  No, of course I don’t, we’re just going to have to wing it.”

Holly to Tara with her wonderful sarcastic mouth, but she definitely speaks some truths to Tara when she needs to hear it.

“What the f*** do you know? TRUE DEATH FOR YOU TOO, NORTHMAN!”

Good thing Nan isn’t producing this show, there would be no vampires left to watch. Hmmm. I  wonder if that is her ultimate plan.

“I feel some bad juju.”

Me too, Lafayette, but I think it’s that wine I spit out my nose earlier laughing.

Debbie Pelt (Brit Morgan) S4 Ep10

 

“Sure you do… you hook up with a different wolf.”

Bad doggie! Alcide is going to make you pay for that one, Marcus.

“I know you are. You can take your first steps to free man tonight… when you walk all the way home!”

That was so brilliant of Terry, leaving Andy to walk home and have some time with his own thoughts.

This episode left us with the sound of kicking ass about to be unleashed! Did your favorite quote make the list? If not leave it in the comment section below.

Top Quotes from Episode 7, “Cold Grey Light of Dawn”

August 13, 2011

Supernatural Vs. Supernatural:

Rutina Wesley as Tara S4 Ep7A very interesting night for fans of True Blood as the plot thickens with the war that is beginning to rage between the vampires and witches. There is a definite line drawn in the ground and it will be very interesting to see who is on what side. The top quotes of the night from episode seven, “Cold Grey Light of Dawn”:

“It may be ten minutes from now or ten years, the moment you think you’re safe, I promise, I will hunt you down and f***ing shred you like confetti.”

Pam to Tara outside of Merlotte’s. It doesn’t matter if Pam’s skin is melting off or she is dolled up in 300 dollar shoes, she is one scary vamp!

“I swear to God I’ll burn this f***ing taco stand to the ground if you don’t let us up out this muthaf***er.”

Layfette to Jesus’s grandfather after being scared to death and taken over by Jesus’ dead uncle. The best part was when Jesus’ grandfather came out, very nonchalant, like, ‘Hold your horses, I was just having sex with my wife’. I mean really, La La! How dare you interrupt him?

“Well I sure as hell don’t want to fry in the sun, what do we do?”

Jessica to Bill when he tells her about the complicated situation regarding Antonia resurrecting in Marnie’s body.

“So tonight we go to ground in silver, and then what?”

Eric & Sookie S4 Ep7 “heart beating”One of Bill’s sheriffs when finding about Bill’s plan to keep them safe. I am not so sure they were thrilled with his plan.

“I’m listening to your heartbeat. I can feel it. Every pulse through your skin into mine. If I lay still and think about nothing else, feels like my own heart is beating.”

Eric to Sookie after making love. The way he looks at Sookie so beautiful and gentle. It was truly a beautiful moment between the two of them.

“I’m going to shove my fist up your a** and use you as a hand warmer.”

Pam to the doctor while undergoing her beauty treatment. I think Pam needs to be nicer to that doctor who is saving her a**, literally.

“Pam! Get your a** out here you prune faced bitch, I ain’t scared of you.”

Tara to the woods when walking down the road where she ends up meeting Marnie’s new identity. While Tara was at first skeptical, she eventually agreed with Antonia/Marnie that they need to protect themselves. I wonder how Tara is going to feel when she realizes the full extent of Antonia’s plan.

Out Comes the Sun

“Ain’t going to be nothing left for you to save if you keep at it — I feel like I’m dying.”

Jessica to Bill who is nearly begging to not be silvered anymore.

“I’ve lost too many people in my life, I can’t lose you too.”

Sookie to Eric when having to silver him. Awww, they are beginning to be that super sweet couple that no one wants to be around.

“Old Luca could have warned me. I felt like a giant-a** puppet for your ghost uncle.”

Luna and Sam S4 Ep7Lafayette to Jesus when talking about himself as a medium, who was being used to save Jesus.

“Okay, how can I say this in a way you won’t misinterpret — f*** you.”

Luna to Sam over the phone. I am not sure if smarty pants Sam could still misinterpret that message.

“Well I can ask my boyfriend, he’s got great spiritual energy when he’s not stoned”.

Coven member to Tara when asked to bring in more people to the coven circle. Hmm, they aren’t being very picky are they?

“I’m sorry. I have caused you so much suffering in your human life and now in this one.”

Bill to Jessica, such a sweet and emotional line between the two of them. He seems to be trying to make amends to those that are important to him.

“Are you in love with her?”

Debbie to Alcide when asking about whether or not Alcide is in love with Sookie. Debbie, Debbie, Debbie! When a man and you are in the moment, best not to start talking about another woman. Show him that you are strong and confident.

“Tell me… was I next? I mean there’s no way to keep it up with both of us around, the only thing to do would be to kill me, then you’d have the money, the bar, the girl… everything.”

Sam to Tommy when confronting him about changing into Sam. Looks like Tommy is on the outs again.

“But understand this, vampires are NOT immortal. They are only harder to kill.”

Jessica meeting the sunOh Antonia is out for blood, vampire blood! You naughty witch.

 

“He’s not going to make it without somebody there for him.”

 

The line that started it all, the fiasco at the end. Sookie said it to Jason, who then realized that Jessica would need someone as well. So he went in search of her, where he was met by one of Bill’s guards. The last sounds of the night were Jessica’s desire to see the sun and a gunshot. Who will make it out alive?

Did your favorite quote of the night make it on the list? If not, post it below to share with us!

Nelsan Ellis: How He Brings Life to True Blood’s Lafayette

August 12, 2011

A Recent NY Post Interview with the Actor:

Nelsan Ellis as Lafayette Season 4Nelsan Ellis is a difficult actor to place. People have been telling him this his entire  career: “I just don’t know how to sell you”. That problem has ended with his portrayal of Lafayette, as the Julliard graduate has shown the world exactly where he belongs — in Bon Temps. Ellis differs from his True Blood character- he is straight and (obviously) doesn’t prostitute himself or sell vamp blood. Ellis describes where in his life he draws inspiration for Lafayette:

“He comes out of my anger, my pain, the femininity that’s in me from watching my mother, and my masculinity. He comes out of me. That’s hopefully how I make him human.”

Ellis did such an astounding job of playing Lafayette that it quickly became obvious to Alan Ball that he had to modify Lafayette’s original fate set out in the Charlaine Harris series — death. When asked Alan Ball admits:

“I knew the first day of working with him that Lafayette couldn’t die, because Nelsan is such an extraordinary actor and presence… I wasn’t going to let that go.”

Nelsan Ellis reveals that Lafayette will discover a new power this season and that Jesus (Kevin Alejandro) will have to help him deal with this ‘gift’. When pressed for more details Ellis would only respond: “Exploring new territory is fun”. He has more to say, however, about True Blood fans. Though he is grateful to them for their support of the show, Ellis is often overwhelmed by the ‘freakiest’ of fans. Ellis says he feels indebted to the fans,

“But I don’t want to sign boobs, you know? Or be propositioned.”

Not everyone in Ellis’ life is an enthusiastic fan of True Blood. The actor says his father, a Christian deacon and conservative, will “support me in his own way”. He turns on the show to give Ellis the ratings, but won’t watch. Ellis explains:

“This type of material – the violence, profanity, nudity, sexuality – was never allowed in his house.”

Ellis discusses the difficulties in playing an openly gay African American and as such, was especially honored to receive a nomination earlier this year for an NAACP Image Award. Nelsan Ellis said about this award:

“Traditionally, homosexuality is something the African-American community doesn’t deal with well…It [NAACP Image Award] made me happy because I thought maybe they did this on the merit of the work, you know what I mean?”

Nelsan Ellis is also very passionate about domestic violence. When he was a student at Juilliard his sister was murdered by her husband. He has used this trauma in his acting and also in writing a play, “Ugly” which he has adapted into a screenplay and now hopes that HBO will do stating: “Domestic violence is an epidemic in this country.”

What questions would you like to ask Lafayette? Are you inspired by Nelsan Ellis’ story? Leave your comments and questions in the section below!
