Buongiorno, TB’ers! Spoilers (well not really, not much happened) after the jump…
So the other day I was watching a Law & Order rerun as by now you know I am wont to do. Actually, this was Law & Order: SVU. [Side note: my L&O rankings are: L&O Classic (Chris Noth years), Criminal Intent, SVU, L&O Classic later seasons]. So the actress who plays Arlene in TB (Carrie Preston) had a role as the wife of a (SPOILER) rapist. She was amazing in the role. She is an amazing actress (side note – as is her husband, Ben Linus from Lost). Point is, I am thrilled that soon she will be released from this show to do better things. OK let’s do it!

WOW! After nothing last week, we’ve got one last look (I presume) at some Jessica sideboob, and some long-awaited fan-service. Yes it was fan-service-y, but it was still great I thought.
Number of eps remaining fun fact of the week
This week’s number is 1. One! Can you fucking believe that? Number one is the ranking of the internet commentors and readers I put the TBH crew at. As in the phrase “True Blood… or Hockey? has the number one commentariat on the internet”. I will miss you guys.
Grade: C-. For about 45 minutes I was ready to give this ep a D—- or something like that, saving the F for the finale. What a tedious and terrible 3/4 of an hour of television. Nothing was going on (seriously, is there any plot left?), Bill is being an ass, I really didn’t care about the soap opera of who was ending up with who, etc., etc. Even a Bill-Eric scene was pretty boring and stupid (though Eric’s quote in this post’s title was good). I mean really Bill, you’re dying for Sookie? Of all the stupid things in this season, that may be the stupidest. But then in the space of 10 minutes I got two sex scenes, one of which was hilarious, Pam being Pam, Eric flying, and then the hint of the possibility that the Yakuza may kill Soookie in the finale. This possibility got me SO excited I can’t even tell you. There’s no way it’s gonna happen of course; Bill will save her somehow and somehow also get cured at the same time, so fuck off show. But for 10 minutes I was sort of happy.
