True Blood - Soul of Fire discussion

What an action-packed, entertaining episode, especially for one that was so contained. Most of the episode took place in and around Marnie’s hidey-hole, where she was keeping her witches, Tara, and Sookie trapped while the vampires tried to break in and kill her. Our favorite part might have been when Marnie accepted a high five from one of her followers. It was so comedically/awkwardly done.

This episode, Marnie makes us completely lose all sympathy for her by stabbing one of her witches and trying to burn Sookie alive. Weirdly, Eric and Bill didn’t look very panicked when they heard her screaming. That would have been a great opportunity to see them lose it. Also, they talked about being able to sense her fear. That seems like a dumb thing to mention when, again, you can hear the screaming. Antonia turned out to be the kind and sane one. Jesus got even more bad ass. We get a good look at his demon face before he saved the day. Sookie used her fairy powers to help save the day.

There is a dumb part where both Eric and Bill try to sacrifice themselves to save Sookie, as if that will solve anything or protect their vampires. But we guess they are both in equally intense love. They made up for it when Eric pulled the heart of Aunt Petunia’s henchmen and sucked on the artery like the heart was a juice box, and then Bill shot Marnie full of holes. Sookie looked disturbed at these acts, but she needs to get over it, because Marnie was a murderer and that was some cool violence.

One part in this episode actually scared us. We were hella-creeped out when Marnie’s ghost came back to possess Lafayette. Maybe it was the music. Maybe it was that we actually didn’t expect it (even though we totally should have). But that made us cringe. We don’t even think that Debbie coming after Sookie, as she inevitably will next week, is gonna be as scary. Sookie, you’d better study up on how to use your powers at will.

This Marnie stuff has been fun and scary, but she needs to go for good after the finale. This needs to not go into season five. It would be nice if some side characters (ok, just Tara) got killed in the finale so that we could go into season five with a little more room for fresh meat and the focus on the ones we actually care about. They made a good start with Tommy, even though one of us actually pitied and rooted for him. Please keep Pam though. She has such good lines.

Although Eric, Sookie, Bill, and Jesus were pretty cool in this episode, we liked Sam the best. He threw away his weapon so that he could beat Marcus in a fair fight and then let him live. Alcide killed him and dumped Debbie with a very serious sounding werewolf speech. Finally, Andy is not useless anymore. He made a promise to protect a fairy and then had sex with her. We know that’s going to come up later…

We are pleased with this episode and this season. Can’t wait for the finale.

Episode Grade: A-
