CHICAGO, June 23, 2014 – True Blood Season 7’s premier episode, Jesus Gonna Be Here is over and viewers are left nothing less than dumbstruck.
It took off with a bloodbath at the town mixer where they were matching vampire protectors with human feeders in hopes that they will live long enough to see the sunrise.
And we are hit with our first of many promised stunners: Tara is killed in that bloodbath.
Sheriff Andy Bellfleur reluctantly leaves fae daughter Adilyn with Jessica as her protector so that he can help find the towns people that have been taken alive from Bellfleur’s bar, where the H-vamps attacked before attacking the town mixer.
Andy teams up with vampire Bill to try and find the rogue H-vamps lair. Only Andy and Bill are looking in the wrong place. Walking into the old meat packing plant they found a different type of meat hanging.
Arlene Bellfleur and Holly Clearly, and two other women, are being held at Pam and Eric’s Vampire bar.
In season six, Jason Stackhouse became the sole property of vampire Violet, who has been insisting on come unreciprocated loving. Tonight, Jason heads out to an old mansion, also looking for the vampire’s lair, only to be further emasculated by Violet, only this time in front of a group of vigilante vampire hunters led by town redneck Vince (Brett Rickaby).
Jason, pretty upset by Violet, and making reference to the color of his ‘balls’ treats Violet to what she wants – a good-sexing, Jason Stackhouse style.
Sookie, who is a telepath, walks into the carnage at Bellfleur’s Bar and is able to hear the thoughts of people, including love Alcide. And everyone is blaming her for the vampire attacks as she is the one that first befriended Bill.
After storming out of the bar and walking home (not smart) Alcide comes home to an angry Sookie, leading to a fight and make-up sex.
Meanwhile, a Hep-V infected vampire is trying to enter the Bellfleur house to ‘taste’ the fairy blood of Adilyn. Jessica stands guard until the sun starts to rise and she starts to smolder.
Adilyn, realizing Jessica will burst into flames, invites her into the house and when Jessica won’t come in, she runs out, so that Jessica has no choice but to get her inside – where her instinct to feed almost overcomes her. Almost.
So next week, the things to anticipate are Bill finding the rogue H-Vamps, saving Arlene and Holly, after, one can anticipate, he goes Billith on them.
Sookie and Alcide’s relationship. There are no indications where that will end up. But there is surely going to be more sex.
Pam is still looking for Eric, whom we last saw sitting naked on a snow covered Alp healing after being seriously burned by the sun.
And then there is show favorite LaFayette, the flamboyant medium and who acts as the voice of the audience, has one of the shows most touching scenes as he is talking to his ‘vampire’ James and they shares an intimate conversation about the concept of loss.
The character James is not new to the series, however the actor Nathan Parson replaces last seasons Luke Grimes.
Series creators promise to streamline this last season and bring the show to a logical conclusion. If such a thing can be done!
Join us next week, right here at Communities Digital News for episode two, I Found You, on June 29, 2014, 9:00pm ET.
