TRUE BLOOD “Never Let Me Go” Review (Season 2 Episode 5)

Sam Trammell, Ashley Jones - True Blood

After a long week of waiting, we finally got to see a new episode of TRUE BLOOD “Never Let Me Go.” While it wasn’t my favorite so far, we did learn a few things.


Turns out she’s a shapeshifter like Sam and not the thing that attacked Sookie, like I suspected (or maybe she is that too…). So I have to ask, what’s the deal with the scar? And isn’t it weird that Sam didn’t ask her about it?

Barry (the bellboy)

Well, we didn’t learn much more about him, except that he can’t control his telepath ability like Sookie can. And even though he quit his job, I have a feeling that he and Sookie will cross paths again in the future.

Hoyt & Jessica

Granted these two only had one scene in this episode and it was over the phone, but I still think they’re adorable and I can’t wait to find out how their relationship will evolve.


I thought she was wising up about Maryann, but it seems that she can’t say no to her. I wonder how Sookie will react when she gets back home and wether she’ll be able to hear more of Maryann’s thoughts.


I still cannot figure what the hell she is exactly, but it does seem that she has power over people’s emotions.


We all knew that Jason couldn’t stay a good boy for too long, especially not with Sarah tempting him the way she did. I wonder how Steve is going to react…


She decides to go undercover in the Fellowship of the Sun. What do you bet she will meet Jason there? But what I really want to see is what he’s going to do about it when he sees his sister there.


We finally see Godric, granted it was through a flashback, but still. Oh and big reveal: Godric is Eric’s maker! That explains Eric’s obsession with finding him.
Godric also seemed pretty powerful to me, which makes me even more curious as to how the hell he disappeared.

And of course, the cliffhanger! Bill’s maker is back! I wonder what she’s doing there…

But I guess all these questions will have to wait until next week to be answered. In the meantime, let me know what you thought of tonight’s episode. Please keep the spoilers to a minimum for those who haven’t read the books.
