Hey Truebies! Did you know True Blood’s sexy shifter Luna was a singer? Well, Janina Gavankar is featured in a new segment on the online music magazine show The Q Side hosted by former MTV VJ Quddus, who goes behind the scenes as Janina shoots a video for her new single. Looking gorgeous and chic, Janina jokes about being hard at work while her True Blood castmates enjoy their shooting hiatus. She also shows a very personal side when she’s visibly moved while discussing the song’s theme, which brings up the pain of her father’s recent passing. My condolences to Janina on her loss. I know the feeling. Her interview with Quddus begins at the 7:04 mark.

 

Eric tried to elminate some competition for Sookie while glamouring Alcide.

July 15 – A battle royal breaks out in Russell Edgington’s chamber as his guard wolves pounce on Eric, Bill and Alcide. Russ tries to replenish his powers with a drink of Sookie’s fairy blood but is flung across the room by her potent light blast. One of the Authority’s chancellors arrives to stop the melee along with his goon squad. He agrees to let Bill and Eric glamour Sookie and Alcide to make them forget what transpired. Eric takes advantage and convinces Alcide that he’s repulsed by Sookie but Bill let’s Sookie remember and pretends to wipe her memory clean of not only the fight with Russ but their love. As a heartbroken Sook drives off with Alcide, the Authority chancellor rounds up the remaining grateful human survivors from Russ’s ghoulish food pantry and slaughters them to cover the Authority’s tracks. At Fangtasia, Tara makes Pam proud by standing up to Jessica in their bathroom brawl but Pam reminds her “daughter” that she’s no more than a well-trained dog. I think Tara may still be touched by Pam’s words. Hoyt is pretty pleased by the girl fight, which he takes as evidence that Jess still loves him. He offers himself to her any way she’ll have him. He just wants to be hers and hers alone. She doesn’t take him up on his offer. Stung by her renewed rejection, he takes up with a male vampire and doesn’t care when the feeding vamp warns him he’s close to death. Hoyt is “rescued” by the supes-hating goons who shot Sam and Luna when they drive up and destroy the vampire. The goons know Hoyt well. Will he be recruited to their cause? Sam and Luna survive their wounds and Emma’s grandmother brings her to visit them in the ER. Luna realizes she must let the wolf matriarch care for Emma while Sam tracks down the masked hoodlums with Andy’s help. When Sam and Andy visit an weapons store for vamp haters, the clerk recognizes Sam and tries to shoot Andy but Sam kills him with a crossbow first! At Sookie’s house, a huge Alcide looks hysterical waking up in Sook’s prissy pink bedroom. During breakfast, he doesn’t remember anything that went on the night before and recoils when Sook touches him, just as Eric wanted. Sook nevertheless breaks through to Alcide’s subconscious and unlocks his memories. Alcide is disgusted that Bill and Eric let Russell live and heads off to confront the werewolves from Marcus Bozeman’s pack who are in cahoots with Russ. When Alcide lays claim to the title of the pack’s new master, he’s challenged by the Alpha wolf who was insulted by Alcide’s initial rejection of the pack. Alcide now feels it’s his responsibility to set the pack straight and get them out from under Russell’s influence. He is backed up by the sexy she-wolf who hunted down Sam for killing Marcus at the start of the season. Will she be Sookie’s new competition for Alcide’s heart? At Merlotte’s Sookie joins Holly and Arlene in some commiserating about the folly of men. Sook thinks they’re only good for making trouble. She should know. Terry, who along with Patrick escaped the Ifrit (for now, anyway), tells Arlene about his curse by the Iraqi woman he executed and a disbelieving Arlene just tells him to go back on his meds. He insists he needs to leave her in order to keep her and the kids safe.

Jason and Sookie go back to Fairyland.

Jason shares his experience in Fairyland with Sook and she decides they need to go there to retrieve Hunter. When they meet up with Hadley and the male fairy who ran from Jessica at the women’s clothing store, the guy tells Sookie that a vampire had confronted her parents on a bridge and killed them because he was drawn to a bandage in the back seat of their car with the scent of Sookie’s blood. An enraged Sook light-blasts him and gets blasted back by some of the other fairies in a blinding display of ticked-off Tinker Bells! Lafayette visits his mom to check in after she has a seizure and learns that she also saw Jesus’ head. Jesus needs his help, she tells him. The question is where is Jesus and is his uncle involved in the visions Lafayette and Ruby are seeing? At the Authority’s headquarters, Bill and Eric are greeted as returning heroes by the chancellors who are proud of the guys’ ingenuity in apprehending crazy Russell. A buff Roman, his rippling muscles practically bursting out of a skintight polo shirt, is especially proud of the boys and even grants Eric’s request to get some alone time with Norah, who’s getting loonier by the minute with her Lilith worship. Roman gleefully plans for Russell’s execution but Salome acts a bit weird. Later, as the chancellors surround Russell trussed up in a stake harness, Roman’s remote control fails and Russ overpowers him and stakes him as a bloody tear streams down Salome’s cheek. Was she the one who betrayed the Authority? I for one will miss having Roman around. He was a bit talky, but he sure knew how to fill out a polo shirt.

Antonia is in full possession of Marnie and ready for retribution against all vampires!

August  7 – The vampire community in Bon Temps braces itself for the onslaught from Antonia Gavelan, the vengeful Spanish witch who has possessed Marnie and compelled her rapist Luis to free her from captivity. Luis pays Bill a visit and tries to kill him, then stakes himself on purpose during the ensuing struggle after announcing Antonia’s resurrection. In Shreveport, Alcide and Debbie are initiated into Marcus Bozeman’s pack although Alcide is clearly less enthusiastic about their new pack mates than Debbie. Deb agrees to let Alcide check on Sookie, whom they last saw toting a rifle looking for Jason in the woods. When the wolf couple find her, they realize that a naked and moaning Miss Stackhouse is in no need of assistance while in the company of the virile Eric Northman. The look on Alcide’s face reveals that finding Eric and Sookie in the act is more than just awkward. Deb picks up on his hurt feelings. How long can Alcide fool himself that he belongs with her? Pam is not having a good night. She attacks Tara and her girlfriend and just as she’s about to kill Miss Thornton, a crowd of camera-toting humans hunting for vampire photo ops to sell to TMZ interrupt her. She’ll get Tara eventually, the rotting bloodsucker promises before speeding away. That’s the last straw for Tara, who breaks up with her gal to protect her from the ever-present danger surrounding her. Tara is later recruited by Antonia, who’s expanding her circle of human spirits to build her power so she can destroy all the vamps just as she had done 400 years earlier. Bill prepares a defensive strategy and orders his sheriffs to command all vampires to either flee the area or silver themselves in their crypts to avoid being compelled by Antonia’s spell to walk into the sun. He even takes silver to Sookie so she can protect Eric just after the two had made love over and over in every position imaginable. Bill senses that their reunion was a “happy” one.

Can Debbie hold on to Alcide?

Eric is afraid Sookie will leave him when he regains his memory and reverts to his old personality. Sookie fears they may not have any choice in the matter. At Merlotte’s Andy has a V craving that ruins his date with Holly. Lafayette sees the phantom woman hovering over Arlene’s baby Mikey and Sam gets cursed out by Luna. When she reminds him about his rude behavior after their lovemaking, the two realize it was Tommy who took Luna to bed in Sam’s form. A livid Sam banishes Tommy from his life forever. Will Mrs. Fortenberry take him back? Hoyt is heading for heartbreak as upside-down push-ups fail to remove erotic visions of Jessica from a sweaty, shirtless Jason’s mind. Hoyt can sense he’s losing Jess, but what will he do when he discovers it’s because she’s heading right into Jason’s well-muscled arms? As sunrise approaches, the vampires in Bon Temps prepare for the agonizing process of being silvered to save them from Antonia’s impending spell. Pam, who gets the mother of all chemical peels in her ongoing quest to reverse the decaying hex Antonia put on her, is covered in a silver mesh blanket and locked in her coffin as she howls and curses a bloody streak. Sookie remains by Eric’s side as all Hell breaks loose and the vampires beg to be freed into the sun’s rays. Bill and Jessica lie side by side weighed down by silver but his decision to not lay silver over her neck enables her to break free and escape into the light just as a desperate Jason races to stop her. Have we seen the last of Jess?

Alcide led the parade of beefcake on the July 17 episode.

July 17 – There were enough shirtless scenes in tonight’s episode to constitute a Men of True Blood calendar. Perhaps that’s a new business idea for the folks at HBO. I’m sure a beefcake calendar would sell well among Truebies. Alex Skarsgard spends plenty of time in the buff as the endearingly amnesiac Eric. After draining Sookie’s fairy godmother Claudine, a drunken Eric craves more fairy blood, but stops himself from biting Sookie yet again. After a playful game of hide-and-seek with the freaked-out fairy, he ignores Sookie’s warnings about the impending sunrise and runs off into the woods where Sook and Alcide later find him skinny-dipping in a lake. The Viking vamp and the hunky wolf trade growls for a brief second until Eric becomes debilitated by the rising sun. Sookie urges him to race home and tucks him into his resting place in the cubby. Alcide is very skeptical about Sookie’s keeping Eric at her house but offers his support nevertheless. When he returns to Shreveport Debbie understands his need to help Sookie in her mission with Eric, for now anyway. When Sam surprises Luna at her home he meets her daughter Emma, who takes an instant liking to him. Emma’s father happens to be a very jealous werewolf, Luna warns Sam but he’s not going anywhere. Tommy, meanwhile, drops in on his mom and updates her on this progress back in Bon Temps. He’s livid when he learns his flea bag father Joe Lee was forcing her to compete in the dog fights and is overcome by the horrible hillbilly, who chains him by the throat like a leash and vows to break him in again to return to the dog fights.

Marnie gave Pam an anti-aging treatment that works in reverse.

In Hot Shot, Jason is being used as a stud service by all the she-panthers until he convinces a teenage one to set him loose. An enraged Fenton shifts to panther form and hunts Jason down but Jason drops in on the big cat from a tree branch and kills him with a makeshift stake. A second panther arrives at the scene and reveals itself to be Crystal, who’s happy to see Fenton go so she can rule over Hot Shot alongside Jason. Mr. Stackhouse tells the perturbed pussy she can keep stick it and leaves her standing naked over Fenton’s corpse. He’ll return to her at the rise of the next full moon, she promises him.  Jason collapses on the side of the road and is rescued by Jessica and Hoyt, who happen to be driving by. Nan Flanagan reads Bill the riot act over sending Eric into a den of Wiccans and warns him not to let any human blood be spilled during the inevitable vampire-witch clashes to come. He cross-examines Pam, who needles him about liking his new authority too much. Next he visits with Porzia Bellefleur’s mom and trades recollections of the Bellefleur family history, bringing the get-together to a screeching halt when he realizes that his daughter married into their clan, making Porzia Bill’s great great great great granddaughter! So much for their friends-with-benefits arrangement. Later, Bill show’s up at Sookie’s place just in time to interrupt Eric’s attempt to get a kiss out of Sookie.  When Bill tries to search the premises for Eric, Sookie ironically convinces him not to proceed by reminding him that she’s never lied to him… until now. It says a lot that Sook crossed that line in order to protect Eric from Bill. I suspect Eric will get his long-awaited kiss very soon. Marnie has a dream in which she witnesses the burning of a young witch during the Spanish Inquisition. The witch is the same one who helped her fight off Eric and begins chanting a spell with Marnie as the flames rise higher. When Marnie searches for a spell to recover Eric’s memory with Lafayette, Jesus and Tara, the Spanish witch’s spirit singles out a book with an incantation. Pam meets the witches to get the cure for Eric from Marnie but instead is afflicted with another hex from the Spanish witch that turns her into a walking, rotting corpse. That witch sure does come in handy for Marnie, doesn’t she?
