True Blood, Season 5, Episode 12: Save Yourself


The fae are blasting Russell but it is not effecting him.  Before he can kill them, Eric grabs Russel and places a steak to his chest.  Before Eric can act the light bursts through Russel's pours and he melts away.  What an anti-climactic way to get rid of Russel.  What was the point of bringing him back to have him die this way?  It makes absolutely no sense to me. Nora shows up and smells Sookie's special fae blood and of course wants to feed on her, but Eric stops her from feeding on Sookie.  Eric forces Nora to swear on godric that he won't feed on Sookie.  Jason is passed out on the ground and when Sookie tries to wake him, he confuses her with their mother.

At the compound, a naked Sam is brought in to see Bill, who  is shocked and asks for Sam to be ungagged. Sam tries telling Bill about Luna, but it is clear Bill is not interested in hearing what Sam has to say so Sam turns into a fly and escapes.  I was actually amused to see Bill the vampire hopping all over the place trying to catch the fly that Sam had turned into.

When Eric shows up at Fangtasia, Tara tells them that the authority have got Pam.  Nora is not the least bit impressed and so Eric says that Tara and Pam are both family and are to be treated appropriately.  The three show up at Sookie's to ask her to go to the vampire authority to pick up Bill, Jessica, and Pam.  Jason is not impressed and says that she should "tell all the fangers to go back to hell."  Eric believes that Sookie is the only one who can through to Bill and Tara repeatedly reminds her that she owes Pam.  I guess that this should have been the hint that Tara has feelings for Pam. Jason agrees to go because he can hear the ghost of his father whispering in his ear.

At the compound, Bill sends the guards on a mission to kill anything that moves. Bill admits to Salome that he killed the counselor and then further lies and says that Lilith actually chose her.  Back in the cages, Sam tells Luna that Bill has lost his mind and that there are surveillance cameras everywhere.  Sam instructs Luna to shift if they come for her but Luna says that she is not leaving Emma.

In another cell, Jessica tells Pam that Eric and Bill are religious fanatics.  Pam does not believe it and says that Bill is always looking for something to be guilty about. Pam says that the worst thing about being immortal is having to watch the same thing over and over.  When Jessica brings up Sookie, Pam says. "must all things lead to Sookie?" That right there without doubt is the line of the night.

Martha shows up with Alcide's lover, who has been force fed V.  It seems that J.D. did this to the whole pack and attacked some of the younger girls.  Herveaux Sr. suggests that Alcide amp up on V and take on JD.

Jason and Sookie go to load up on weapons and she tries to tell him that the vampires are their friends. The entire time Sookie is talking, Jason is hallucinating their parents.   At Merlott's, Lafayette is handing out margaritas and dancing. Andy shows up with Marella to talk to Holly. Holly is not impressed that Andy cheated and Marella starts to groan in pain, as light shoots out between her legs.

On the way to the authority compound, Jason points out that they keep falling for people who are unavailable. In the background their father says to Jason, "vampers made you orphans."    At Merlott's, Holly is acting is midwife to Marella, who is pratically orgasmic on the pool table. Marella has a girl, raises her legs and the moaning starts again. 

In the compound, Newlin shows up with a leash for Emma, crying and shaking. Talking to Chelsea about taking Emma out, she realises that Steve doesn't have a southern accent anymore. Clearly this is Luna masquerading as Newlin and Sam is the fly in the elevator.

Marella gives birth to four girls  and tells Andy to take good care of them and leaves the bar.  She tells him that he sired them and that it is now his duty to make sure that half of them make it to adulthood. He smiles at Holly who simply calls him a dick.

In the woods, JD has a young vampire strung up and is draining him when Alcide shows up. Alcide kills JD and then all of the weres fall to their knees in front of him. Alcide says, "this stops tonight, we're wolves and we do not surrender to nihilism." I guess that was his big captain Kirk speech but honestly, I couldn't give a damn.
