True Blood - Burning Down the House discussion

First off, we love the Antonia material this week, specifically finding out that she has a good side. She was horrified by the killing of people at the Tolerance Rally, and she used to be a healer. Petunia Dursley had to talk her into staying in possession of their shared body and continuing the war against the vamps.

Secondly, YAYYYY Tommy is dead. One of the most repulsive and useless characters on TV is gone. While Sam was hoping that Tommy would end up heading toward the white light, we agree with Tommy that he should just disappear. We know that the scene was written to be sad, but we were not sad.

Sam was awesome in this episode and we can’t wait to see him get revenge on Marcus for killing his brother. Does Alcide really not want kids? Or does he just not want to have kids with Debbie? We are annoyed with Sookie for breaking Eric’s heart. She needs to choose between Eric and Bill, feelings be darned, and it needs to be Eric. We like him even more with his memory back. He still knows what it’s like to be all cute and nice and in love, so now it’s the best of both worlds. The bad ass and the good guy.

When is Sookie going to be able to have control over her faerie powers? When are we going to figure out their limits, what they are, and exactly what she can do? Because this “oh I will just randomly save everyone and be surprised at opportune moments” thing strikes us as a little cheap. It’s like the plot device that kills the tension, allows Sookie to be useful, and solves all the problems instantly. They could have at least let us watch Bill and Eric fight for a little longer. This show really gyps us with the fight scenes. At least with Eric back, we will get a break from watching Sookie and Eric sidelined, having sex and playing house.

Terry and Andy shoot guns in the woods and talk about Terry’s year living in a treehouse like a squirrel after he came back from the marines. “I’m drug free now, except for the anti-psychotics,” was the best line of the episode. Hopefully Terry’s weird, manly intervention results in a clean Andy.

We’re still loving Jesus (the show Jesus, not the Jewish one, duh. Although he’s alright too.), but what’s the deal with his “demon face” thing? Antonia mentioned that he had a demon helping him. We hope the demon doesn’t make him evil. Or half evil, like a Gollum/Smeagol thing. We like Jesus as an attractive good guy who is probably the best thing to happen to Lafayette in the history of this show. Ok, second-best thing. The best thing was when the showrunners decided not to kill Lafayette like they did in the books. Lafayette said, about the demon head, “It’s a Latin thing.” Psh, that’s racist, haha.

The biggest gripe we have with this episode is the final shot. It had Pam, Jessica, Eric, and Bill dressing all in black and carrying cool guns, walking in slo-mo to blow up the witches. And if you are going to play The Talking Heads, ever, play the real version. It would have been cool if they were wearing what they normally wear. Or business suits. Or anything except what they were wearing. So cliche. What is this, The Matrix part four?

And for the record, we couldn't care less about Hoyt, Jessica, and Jason's little dilemmas. Jason had just started getting tolerable and then they had to plunk him into this boring mess of a triangle. Waste of our lives.

Only two episodes left in the season.

Episode Grade: B (Points off because we were a little bored during it.)
