True Blood 3.06 – I Got a Right to Sing the Blues

Last Week

It was rough last week but now all our principal characters are ‘guests’ of Russell.

This Week

I found it amusing when Talbot blew a fuse over the hole in the ceiling Bill made when the King stopped him, instead of reacting to the attempted staking. Great opening scene. Russell orders Bill to the slave pens and Lorena to kill him. Eric shutting Sookie up was also great.

Lafayette and Jesus continue to be cute together but they run into a snag when Jesus learns that Lafayette is a drug dealer.

Jessica is also cute when she displays her fangs at Arlene’s finger cut, scaring her. She is funny, a great addition outside Charlene Harris’ books.

Jason and Crystal also run into some problems when Jason meets her fiancée.

Russel’s interview with Sookie was exceptional. He also reveals Bill’s research to Sookie but she doesn’t seem to mind, she is determined to rescue Bill. I wonder if Talbot will cease to be comic relief and become a real problem for Russell. Anyway Eric and Russel go off and visit the Queen. Russell’s proposal to Sofie-Ann is another great scene. Eric is trying to seduce Russell so he can get his revenge.

Sam and Tommy start to have a talk about their father but are interrupted by momma. Seems like Sams folks are involved in dog fighting.

Mott and Tara try to surpass Bill and Loreena’s lovemaking but it is only part of Tara’s plan to get free. I like this new non whiny Tara. I wonder if banging the head in with a morning star kills a vampire, at least Tara seems to think it does. She frees Sookie and run for it only to run into Alcide who is out looking for Sookie.

Lorena tortures Bill while he tortures her right back when Cooter and Debbie shows up at Bill’s torture for some blood. It ends with Sookie being eaten by Lorena.

Amazing episode, a great deal of the remaining plots start to clear now. I can’t wait to see the next episode.

Said and done

  • Do you care nothing about our home! (Talbot)
  • I would love to tear you open and wear your ribcage as a hat (Lorena)
  • There is a fine line between feisty and delusional (Russell)
