My only complaint in this episode was the focus on Terry and his army buddy dealing with their past. Although I liked knowing why Terry was suffering from PTSD so badly. I found it very predictable and boring to watch. It was pretty obvious to me since the premiere that the fire bug was going to be some sort of demon curse. I know the writers like to give stories to other Bon Temps inhabitants aside from Sookie's main story. But sometimes it would be nice if they could solely concentrate on her in one episode.
One thing I must say was shocking was the bandits going around killing the poor shape shifters. We were left hanging with Sam and Luna being shot so horribly. I have to say that no doubt Sam will survive but what about poor Luna? And seeing her daughter run away definitely made me say 'No don't shoot the cute puppy!!'. I'm guessing this will be one of the main mysteries that will be explored this Season. Hopefully the anti-shapeshifting bandits will be killed themselves or rot in jail.
I enjoyed Tara bonding with Jessica over being a new vampire on the scene though. Now that Tara is a vampire herself she has no reason to really hate them anymore. I felt like they were really going to end up being buddies until Tara decided to make Hoyt a snack. Can't wait to see how that fight goes out. What is with Hoyt anyways? Did Jason's affair with Jessica mess him up so badly now he's behaving like an angsty teenager? Grow up buddy!
Meanwhile, Jason is suffering on his own with wacky dreams about his childhood and the possibility of his parents being murdered. I have to say his Mom offering up a blow job gave me the creeps! But then again that's True Blood's style isn't it?
Sookie, Eric, Bill and Alcide trying to find Russell in that abandoned building was quite suspenseful though. I felt a bit like I was watching a horror movie. And Russell sure did look like some sort of movie monster waiting to pounce. I am anticipating the reveal of who helped him escape from his cement prison. Though It looks like Salome is possibly a traitor in the Authorities organization. I guess we'll find out eventually...
