TRUE BLOOD “Spellbound” Season 4 Episode 8 – Last episode of True Blood ended with Jessica opening the door into sunlight. And after waiting a week to find out what happens next it is now time to talk about “Spellbound.” As always let’s take it one character at a time.
As I predicted last week, Jason saves Jessica from the sun and… they kiss! OMG that happened way faster than I thought it would.
BUT that’s all that will happen at least for now because even though Jessica broke up with Hoyt, Jason, being a loyal friend, took back his invitation from Jessica and sent her away.
Even though I know it would break Hoyt’s heart if Jason and Jessica ended up together, I think they would make an interesting couple.
Jessica & Hoyt
“OMFG! Did Jessica just kill Hoyt?” was my thought when I saw that scene between the two, but of course it was just a dream. But honestly, wouldn’t it have been INSANE if it was true, yet at the same so good story-wise? Don’t get me wrong I’m happy it was just a dream, because it would be a big stretch for the character of Jessica, but still it was kind of an awesome moment.
Of course even though she didn’t kill him, Jessica finally broke up with Hoyt. We all knew it was coming anyway, but to be honest I didn’t expect Hoyt to react the way he did. At the same time I’m happy he didn’t react the way he did in the dream, that would have just made him quite pathetic.
I am looking forward to seeing how their storyline evolves separately now.
We found out that the ex-husband of his girlfriend is Marcus the Alpha werewolf of Alcide’s pack. That’s a turn of events I didn’t expect because I thought Marcus was ok up until then.
I wonder who would win in a fight, Marcus or Sam? And this also brings back my question of whether shapeshifters can shift into werewolves…?
It’s official there is no hope for Tommy, especially now that he can shift into different people. That reminds me, couldn’t Sam do that too if he wanted?
Lafayette & Arlene’s Baby
We finally find out what that creepy doll is all about and I knew it had something to do with all the disturbing stuff happening. I don’t understand why Terry and Arlene would leave such a dirty doll with their baby.
And why didn’t Lafayette say anything to Terry and Arlene about their baby being haunted? I know I would want to know. And now it’s too late since she took over his body.
Also that song she sings is kind of weird because it doesn’t usually goes that way (unless it’s a version I’m not aware of), so I’m curious to find out what it all means. Or maybe I’m overthinking it and it’s just a song she used to sing and nothing else.
By the way, where’s Jesus? Wouldn’t he notice Lafayette acting weird?
I wonder how the fact that she sided with the witches will affect her friendship with Sookie. One thing’s for sure, it is that friendship which saved her life.
Sookie & Eric
Eric told Sookie: “We will be one” so that she would drink his blood and they had some sort of experience together (that snow scene was really pretty!). But I’m a bit confused because I don’t remember that happening with her and Bill and we know she drank his blood. So is it something that they just didn’t show with Bill or did I miss something?
In other news, I like how Sookie finally acknowledged that she has powers that can help in a war situation, even though she can’t control them very well. And as we saw they once again became useful for her to defend herself. Unfortunately, they don’t seem to protect against bullets. Boo!
My newfound love for this new Bill continues this episode. He is such an interesting character this season. I just love his crisis management with the “vampire suicide” and how he tried to make a deal with Antonia.
Unfortunately, I don’t think Bill will ever be able to make peace with Antonia, she’s too angry and vindictive. Still you have to admire his negotiating skills.
So Alcide promised Debbie to stay away from Sookie and the whole vampire/witches business, but did we really believe he would? I know I didn’t.
And of course as I suspected Alcide couldn’t stay away. The only problem is that Debbie saw him run to find Sookie. That doesn’t bode very well for him and for his place in the pack either because I’m thinking Debbie will tell on him.
This episode had another good cliffhanger.
Sookie gets shot and Alcide is able to take her away. Obviously she won’t die, but I wonder if Bill will be able to cure her and if not how she will get out of it. Will the fairies come into play once more?
As for Eric, not only has he lost his memory, but now he is under Antonia’s control. I don’t like this… I don’t like this at all… is it next Sunday yet?
I’d love to hear your thoughts on the episode. Are you hoping for Jason to change his mind about Jessica? Do you think Sam can take Marcus? What about Antonia, are you as afraid of what she might do with Eric as I am? You can share your thoughts in the comment section below.
