TRUE BLOOD “Night on the Sun” Review

True Blood (HBO) Season 3 Tara

This week’s episode of TRUE BLOOD “Night on the Sun” was an emotional roller coaster, there were plenty of tears, what’s the deal with that? I didn’t have my tissues ready. But who cares if I was a mess, that was a brilliant episode and I loved it. The beginning had a nice change of pace especially after last week’s crazy episode, but then it went back to being the insane outrageous show we love. So let’s talk about it.


Now that Sam is taking care of Tommy, he’s realizing it might be a little bit more than he bargained for. Oh and am I right in assuming that there are some new shapeshifters in town? That could become pretty interesting, and by interesting I mean not good.


So his mother got out of the hospital and brought him and Jesus back together, yay! These two are really an adorable couple. I wonder if Jesus will help Lafayette get out of the V business.


Finally, she was given something interesting to do in this episode. I loved how she totally hugged Bill when he came back. It’s so sad to see how lost she is without him (and Hoyt). It was also great to get their relationship back on screen. And how great was their fight training session.


So Jason is getting his Fellowship Of The Sun gear out to go threaten Crystal’s father and fiance. Really? It doesn’t seem like a really good idea. And I have to ask, is it me or does it seem like they are making Jason a little dumber this season? He was never really bright to begin with but it feels like it’s getting worse.
As for Crystal, I have an issue with her whole storyline with Jason. I don’t get why she is so special that womanizer Jason would fall head over heels for her. I feel like it was never made really clear. Am I alone in this?


Even though Sookie had a really sweet moment with Alcide, she is still Bill’s girl. I’m so glad these two ended up together in the end. Oh and of course, Sookie was pretty badass in her fight with Debbie, I mean come on, she totally took on a werewolf, that’s not something just anyone can do.


I have to end with Eric because he probably had one of the most unexpected scenes in this episode. Yes, I’m talking about the sex scene with Talbot. Can’t say that I saw that one coming, although I did see the kill coming. It’s going to be quite an interesting showdown between him and the King, yes quite interesting.

Special Mention – Talbot

So Talbot’s dead now, but I had to mention how much I loved him and his tantrums. Plus he had one of the best lines of the night:

“You’re acting like a century-old child”

He’s going to be missed.


And for the famous cliffhanger, well it was pretty much Talbot getting killed and a torrid sex scene between Sookie and Bill. Am I alone in saying that I can’t frakking wait for next week’s episode?!

Now I want to hear from you guys? Did you love Sookie and Bill’s reunion as much as I did? What about Talbot’s crazy death? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

    I was so disappointed in Sookie for sleeping with Bill. Why hasn’t she asked him any questions about what Tara told her, the file Russell showed her, anything??? I am sooo over Sookie and Bill and Tara was right when she called her a dumb B**ch.

  • Jules

    I am so over Sookie and Bill, I can’t tell you. What the heck was that? The trauma of being almost killed by Bill lasts not even one day? The fact that he’s been collecting information on her but not telling her is irrelevant? Stupid Sookie is so unattractive. Thank God there are other interesting characters to carry the show.

    I loved Bill and Sookie’s reunion, sweet/hot, the best scene of the night.

    Other highlights: Bill and Jessica’s reunion and training. Sookie and Debbie’s fight.

    Disappointments: Talbot’s dead. Eric and Talbot’s sex scene not sexy enough. Jason’s storyline.

    I suppose the B/S sex reunion was “hot” in the way that a heroin addicted girl being pumped by the guy who is addicting her is “hot”. Right now Sookie isn’t different from Debbie, who she fought with. Both are loaded up on vamp blood. But Debbie has to hunt for her vamp blood, Sookie is getting it straight from her bofriend/supplier.

    B/S may have lots of true feeligs about each other, but if Sookie were my friend, I’d be talking to her like Tara is. And, it’s hard to see how Bill has Sookie’s best interests at heart, when he’s also become addicted to feeding on her special blood.

    Has everyone forgotten that Tara isn’t too bright herself when it comes to men. She is still pining for that loser monster Eggs. Does she not remember how foolish she acted last season and how Eggs nearly killed Sam and everyone else?

    Some of these people need to go to the big city for a vacation and get out of small-minded Bon Temps. Of course the show wouldn’t be much fun if everyone got smart!!

    This is my favorite episode from the series so far! The sex scene was just majorly hot, and had to hide my rager (kidding) although i think it was just revenge sex (thats where you screw someone who screwed you emotionally, the sex doesnt change anything), and I think sookie’s life is going to fall apart completely in the next few episodes. Im looking foreward to seeing if tommy is really as bad ass as he projects and really want to see him and sam ***SPIOLER*** beat down some feline ass! I miss Pam, they really should have developed her character more in previous episodes, but now is better than never!

    Disappointed in Sookie getting back with Bill. I thought she was finally over that business. And what’s up with them doing the deed while Jessica is out there duking it out? I guess Bill would know if she was in trouble…. but still.
    I want to see Sookie get with Alcide. Finally some hotness to compete with Eric! =)

    Speaking of… so glad Eric finally got rolling on his devious plan. I was getting a bit tired of the a$$-kissing Eric and was yearning for our a$$-KICKING Eric back.

    Favorite Character: Still Lafayette. Love his say-it-like-it-is personality.

  • Give her a break.Sookie doesnt know exactly why he kept a file on her.Hell WE DONT EVEN KNOW.She probably thinks it was in her best interest.And they really love eachother.So she was like fuck tara ,Fuck russel.I love you bill compton.And to me that was really sweet…And he said sorry 8 times give him a fucking break,Hes a vamp and her blood is like cat nip candy and he was starving he couldnt help himself.TEAM SOOKIE&BILL!LOVED THE SEX SCENE AT THE END.KICK ASS WOOO!

  • What you guys have to understand is tara only saw the side of bill when he was STARVING,SAVAGE,INJURED AND IN NEED OF HEALING and had lost control on sookies cat nip candy blood.Shes not there when bill and sookie are all lovey dovey and he puts his ass on the line for her on a regular basis.I love tara but i really wished she would shut her fucking mouth on that episode.She didnt even know what she was talking about,or half of anything about sookie and bills relationship.And tara was talking down to sookie like shes an expert in good men.When shes obviously shitty in that area too.That was the best episode of all the seasons,And sookie kicked debbies ass thoroughly.WOOOO

    I loved seeing Sookie and Bill back together at the end of the episode! That sex scene was all kinds of hot. If they’re getting back together for good I would like them to address the breakup and all that was said. But it’s obvious that even if they know the reasons they shouldn’t be together, they still love and lust for one another way more than they want to be apart.
