Jason rants about being brain-raped by vampires and has finally had enough of Sookie habitually choosing vampires. He has a hankering for revenge. Lilith shows up to walk around naked. Sam bores. The shifter plotline and three-way isn’t even minutely interesting. TPTB should have ousted Sam, Bill, Jessica, Tara and Sookie from the show long ago. Andy can’t cope with his spawn, cue self-abasement. The new PTB have no gift for show running only for self promotion.
Jason gets a lift from a creepy dude (Rutger Hauer). Sookie decides to be emboldened. There is consternation all round. Jessica and Bill are tersely annoying. A TruBlood executive (Tamlyn Tomita of ‘The Burning Zone’) shows up in a car with the licence plate TRUBLD1. The governor has a plan. Pam and Tara provoke a dispute. Eric bores. This show was demeaning and of minimal interest.
“Buy a gun. Buy as many as you can.”
“Fish piss and sand in your cooch.”
“You keep taking their side over and over.”
“Your litter of alien babies!”
“Hog tits Arlene!”
“The kind with the bunny rabbit on the label.”
“I’ll slap the fangs out of your face.”
“Don’t stir this pot.”
“Evil vampire god monster thing.”
“I’m a cutter not a pisser.”
“He very much wants to be you.”
“You built up something.”
“You were hiding in the FBI. That’s talent.”
“Get a job doing it when you get out. They may never know you were in.”
“I want you to kill Hannibal Lecter.”
“I believe you and I are his only surviving psychiatrists. Pulled the tongues out of all the rest.”
There is a countdown to disaster. Russell whines and it is unclear what is going on. Jedikiah vanishes for 90% of the episode. Russell dispenses one liners. This ep is an indictment of how TPTB messed up. There is a broad daylight fight that no-one notices. TTP act like a gang of hoods. Astrid and John hook up. Everyone makes constipated faces and there is shouting and groaning and indiscriminately moronic actions. Stephen does ‘incensed’ and ‘lunging’, he can’t act even as he sends the Founder into limbo. Cara does ‘getting shot’ badly but Stephen rewinds time to save the inattentive twit. Any talent or imagination is suppressed by TPTB.
Jedikiah pops up to be resilient and offer John a syringe full of Roger’s DNA. John accepts. A new plan is implemented. New breakouts show up. Stephen is the new leader and takes over Ultra. Oh ha ha ha ha. Stephen and Cara hook up but is there something wrong with Cara? Jedikiah starts up a new organisation with John as his amnesic loyal sidekick. Also Jedikiah not only gave John his powers back but he also got John to finally comb his hair. More Jedikiah and less Stephen and Cara would have saved this show.
“Last time we talked about this, you had me thrown in a rubber room.”
“The planet, as it should be.”
“I’ve made him immortal.”
“Your weird telepathy face.”
“What about Jedikiah?”
