What I’m Watching: True Blood

True Blood: Season 6, Episode 7 “In the Evening” (B)

This episode featured some intriguing shifts of power in the wake of the developments from last week, namely the death of Governor Burrell and the poisoning of Nora. Sarah sweeping the Governor’s death under the rug and taking steps to make it seem like he’s still alive is extremely worrisome, especially since her hatred of vampires knows no bounds. Having Jason arrested demonstrated just how cutthroat she is, and she’s going to be vampirekind’s most formidable enemy yet, maybe aside from Marnie. Eric treating Bill like God is an odd sight, and this show always has to be just as disgusting as it is sexy (the end of last week’s episode is the best proof), culminating in a nauseating and visually scarring death for Nora in Eric’s arms. Willa is definitely an excellent ally for Eric, though it seems she’s going to be caught up with other things in gen pop. Pam showing her therapist a good time is an interesting but not unexpected tactic, and I eagerly await the inevitable revolt that’s coming from inside the facility. It’s hard to follow just what Warlow is up to these days and what side he’s on, and Terry’s death at the middle of it all just confounds things. Bill stopping by to apologize to Arlene and shake Andy’s hand was odd, and it’s hard to know what’s coming next. Let’s hope that at the very least Alcide finally wakes up to the reality of what’s going on around him and determines that, however tangential to the main storyline they may be, two innocent humans need not die as punishment for interfering with werewolf business.
