Video: HBO’s Inside the Episode – I Wish I Was the Moon

August 5, 2011

Spoiler Alert: Eric and Sookie!

Sookie S4 Ep6Don’t read on if you haven’t already seen Episode 6 (I Wish I Was The Moon) of HBO’s True Blood.

Well, what an episode this one was! Fans of the Sookie (Anna Paquin) and Eric (Alexander Skarsgård) relationship were in for a treat. It started with that kiss at the end of the previous episode. We spent all week wondering what would follow in the opening scene of the new episode. And good on Alan Ball to drag that anticipation out even longer – right to the end of the episode, in fact!

While we all hated Bill (Stephen Moyer) at the start of this episode, there were a couple of tender moments that made our hearts melt for Sookie’s first beau. When Eric uttered the words: “Tell her I was born the night she found me,” we started to melt for Eric, but then when we saw the look on Bill’s face when Eric uttered the words: “After I’m gone, I hope you’ll find your way back to each other… because she deserves happiness,” there was no way we, as an audience, could hold complete malice for Bill. Bill letting Eric go, even at the expense of losing Sookie forever, was the icing on the cake.

So what did you think of Episode 6?

Season 4 Update: Casting Call and Episode Title for Episode 6

January 27, 2011

A Call Goes Out For a Recurring Guest Star

Neko CaseJust when you thought it was going to be a slow news week Truebies, another little tidbit about season 4 has made its way out onto the web! Episode six of season 4 is entitled “I Wish I Was the Moon” according to IMDB. It is written by Raelle Tucker and is directed by Jeremy Podeswa. There is also a song of the same name by Neko Case who is depicted to the right. The lyrics can be found here.  Perhaps we will hear it during the episode.

This particular installment calls for the character of Mavis who is slated to be a recurring guest star. The casting call reads as follows:

[MAVIS] Female, African American, 20-30 years old. She is a sad-eyed girl dressed in a modest 1930s dress. RECURRING GUEST STAR. Must speak with a Cajun accent.

Judging from the way she’s dressed, Mavis sounds like she’ll be a part of a flashback. Very interesting! Shooting is scheduled to commence on this episode on February 4th. More details about this episode will be released if and when they are available here on TBN!

Season 2: Episode 6 – “Hard-Hearted Hannah”

July 30, 2009

gw366h244In Dallas Isabel’s human boyfriend Hugo offers to accompany Sookie on her mission to locate Godric at the Light of Day institute. They leave for the church under the guise as a good Christian couple looking for a new church. On reading the minds of Sarah and Steve Newman Sookie discovers that their cover is blown and Steve has more sinister plans for the two.

At the Light of Day camp, Jason Stackhouse decides to live a life of righteous celibacy then has those plans hijacked after a matter of hours. Jason provides another beautiful example of how easily impressionable young men can be – especially where sex is involved.

Eric brings Bill’s maker Lorena to the Vampire hotel in an attempt to drive a wedge between Sookie and Bill. We are treated with an extended flash back to the 1920s showing how violent, passionate killing used to be Bill’s forte. Lorena prevents Bill from coming to Sookie’s rescue resulting in Sookies imprisonment in the basement of the Light of Day institute.

Daphne continues to court Sam with sickening innuendo, and ends in the ultimate double cross in the whole season so far. Tara and Eggs head out to get parts for the hot water system only to detour onto something disturbing. And for something completely different – Maryanne throws another orgy of Dianic proportions, the shock value is (not at all) high. The town folk fornicate as Maryanne dances her Shake-n-Bake routine and to mix things up a bit – this time she puts on a mask.

Top 5 of “Hard-Hearted Hannah”

1. Hoyt’s courtship of Jessica. Their innocent awkward interaction is too cute beyond words.

2. Eric’s growing interest in Sookie – lets face it, after that hair cut he may just trump Bill in looks department.

3. Jason Stackhouse’s cringe-worthy attempt at song writing.

4. Sookie, Hugo, Steve and the body guard trapped in the basement with Godric. What has happened? Will Jason help them? So many exciting conclusions to wait for.

5. Love a good 1920s speak easy, “Maybe after your guests leave we can F*** prohibition together.” And in a way, they did.

Editor’s 2 cents:

  1. We agree on Jessica and Hoyt.  They are just totally sweet.
  2. The scene in the kitchen with the hot water heater broken.  Maryann can’t hide her hedonism, Eggs was being over-easy again in that outfit and did Tara actually apologize for being snarky???
  3. Anything Sam.  Seriously he keeps forcing me to forget he’s cute and notice he’s talented.  Great job Sam o’ the Sam.
  4. The Andy, Terry, Lafayette triage in the kitchen.  I’m just not sure if I was supposed to be laughing so hard at the ‘hallucination’ but I was loving the Terry-care.  Hug Lafayette once for me!
  5. “Do Bad Things With You” intro.  Seriously, Every week I enjoy the heck out of this sequence and find it impossible to sit still!

Favorite Line: Lafayette to Pam, “Are you real?”

Favorite boy or girl friend: Hoyt Hoyt Hoyt!  He provided the only ‘feelgood’ moment of the show.

Biggest Sneak Appearance: Who noticed Nathan Barr playing the piano at the start of the roaring 20’s scene?

Least Favorite Scene:  I swear I’m not a prude but the orgy scene had me saying, ‘More is NOT always Better’.  I could have done with a lot less detail.  In fact, I felt like this episode didn’t give me any breathing room at all.

Biggest Surprise:  Was that Stephen singing???
