Hey, no one died, hooray! Well, okay, yeah, some people died but no main characters that I’d grown to love over the years! Over all this was definitely more of an upbeat episode than the last three. We got some great flashbacks, a tiny, ittybitty Bill and Sookie moment, as previously mentioned, no one important died (Rosie kind of brought it on herself), and we got to see Hoyt.
True Blood Season 7, Episode 3 “Death is Not the End” Review
Let’s talk about those flash backs for a minute, shall we? Ginger was the brains behind everything, I knew it! Well, not knew it in the sense of having the slightest idea, but I knew there was something I didn’t know. (And you win ALL the points if you know where that last line is from and who said it!) I kind of love how Ginger was this totally normal person who just happened to be a big fan of fictional vampires and she was completely taken into the lifestyle without having to be an actual vampire. That’s pretty much my goal in life. I also liked seeing The Magister, I always thought he seemed so tough and cool. And okay, tell me I’m not the only one who thought
Eric looked like Vanilla Ice? You know you thought so too!
Seeing Hoyt was nice but I really hate that Jessica glamoured away all his memories of Jason. I really want him to come back to Bon Temps but this is such a dangerous time! Hoyt was always such a straight up nice guy, I don’t think I could take seeing him needlessly killed. And let’s be honest, he’s going to want revenge if he finds out it was Violet who killed his mother. So would Jason protect him, or try anyway, against Violet? Will he have any contact with Jessica?
I thought Arlene was a goner for sure, so I was glad to be proven wrong there. I don’t know who that handsome vampire was that gave her his blood but I wouldn’t mind seeing some more of him. Then again there are only six episodes left (BOO!) and we really don’t need any new characters introduced, do we?
With the killing off of the Hep V vampires and the idiot vigilante citizens, does that mean the rest of the season will focus on the hunt (and capture?) of Sarah Newlin? But surely there are more infected vampires roaming around? And what about the Japanese Tru Blood dudes? They’re looking for Sarah too, but something tells me they won’t team up with Eric and Pam to hunt her down together.
