True Blood Season Five: Sunset

OK, so we are in the penultimate episode of the season with a multitude of storylines and characters that need to be put in place for the climax of all the doings so far yet this episode only runs 52 minutes. What’s up with that? It’s not like there wasn’t a shitload of stuff that could have been squeezed into that extra 8 minutes especially after the show wasted time on the Herveaux family dynamic for some insane reason. Alan Ball is worse at time management than Andy Reid.

Tara still has to work on her impulse control though since she tried to drain a patron after only being on the job for 5 seconds. Pam admonishes her progeny very sharply which makes Jess feel sorry for them baby vamp. Jess and Tara bond over being turned without their consent and the heightened senses that can be overwhelming. And also how awesome it is to drink blood from the tap.
A little later Hoyt shows up to very desperately offer himself to Tara. She shoots him down at first but the next time we visit Fangtasia Tara is sucking the living daylights out of Hoyt’s neck. Luckily for the heartbroken hillbilly, Jessica is in the next stall getting her drink on and is able pull Tara off him before she drains him dry.

True Blood Season Five: We’ll Meet Again

Breaking Up Is Hard To Do

Pam stops Tara from killing herself on the tanning bed and compels her to refrain from any more attempts at suicide. she then takes her child back to Fangtasia where Bill and Eric are waiting for them. While Bill and Tara go into the other room, Eric forcefully questions Pam to see if she is the one who helped dig up Russell Edgington. Pam didn’t do it and she is mightily pissed at Eric for even thinking she would. Eric tries to be all cold-blooded and haughty but eventually he warms up and makes the ultimate sacrifice to ensure Pam’s safety by freeing her from the maker bond so that she won’t be swept up in the whole Vampire Authority/Russell Edginton fracas that Eric is confident will end in his own death.
Bill and Tara’s conversation really went nowhere since she was being a big twat (mainly about Sookie). Later on, after a nice nap, Pam wakes Tara and gets her to feed on a living breathing human. Tara attacked fresh blood with serious gusto and her schooling on Vampire Existence 101 has begun.
Bill goes back to his mansion to look for listening devices since that would have to be the only way anyone outside of him, Eric, Pam and Alcide would have known about Russell. he also has a touching father/daughter moment with Jessica moment.
