***Warning this recap contains spoilers – if you have not seen tonight’s episode of True Blood “I Wish I Was the Moon”, do not read, turn around and just walk away!! For the rest of you, go ahead and click below to to read away!***
Last week Pam revealed that she knew what happened to Eric, this week opened with Eric and Sookie in the middle of their kiss and Bill barging in and arresting Eric on the grounds of treson and that he has been infected by Marnie.
On the other side of Bon Temps, Arlene and Terry’s house is going up in flames and it all has to do with Baby Mikey and that creepy doll. We do however get our first look at who Mikey is talking/playing with, and one thing is for sure, it is not Rene.
Tonight’s episode as all about the full moon, and with the full moon comes shifters and were’s, and its truth time on whether Jason is actually turning into a were-panther, and it looks like the answer (at least for now) is no. According to Alcide and Debbie, the only way to become a were or shifter is if both or at least one of your parents passes on the gene to you.
The biggest discovery of the night is we now know who “The Witch” Marnie has been channeling is. Her name is Antonia, who was has an understandable hatred to all vampires due to her our torture and eventual death at the hand of Spanish vampires who impersonated Spanish priests. It seems Luis (another vampire sheriff) was one of those vamps who tortured her and she looks to have under her control by the episodes end.
The episoded ended with the moment all us Eric/Sookie fans have been waiting for. After Bill sets him free, Eric and Sookie share a great kiss and end up making love in the middle of the woods. Granted its no shower sex scene, but according to Alan Ball via last week’s Comic-Con, that scene is coming!
Other fun facts we learned this week:
Jessica and Jason now share a blood bond, which alerts Jessica to Jason’s fear tonight when he thinks he is going to turn into a were-panther.
Debbie Pelt joins the Shreveport pack behind Alcide’s back, forcing Alcide to “run” with the pack during the full moon.
Tommy (after killing his parents) ends up shifting into Sam (think back a few weeks to a story told by Luna). Tommy (as Sam) ends up firing Sookie and sleeping with then kicking out Luna. Sam walks into to find Tommy passed out in a pool of his own vomit.
Next weeks “Cold Grey Light of Dawn” airs next Sunday at 9pm on HBO.
