Oh my god, I love Amnesia Eric! There is really no other way to start off this recap. We begin where we left off last week, as Sookie tells him, “You drank the whole fairy,” as if she’s some sort of Slushee. Well, a Slushee spiked with some serious booze because fairy blood makes vampires drunk.
Yes, Amnesia Eric is drunk as a skunk. He zips around at vampire speed, pinches Sookie’s butt and runs off into the sun after attempting to bite her.
Very interesting to note that even wasted, Eric says he’ll never hurt her. After attempting to find Eric and failing, Sookie calls in her knight in shining…um…silver fur? It’s Alcide to the rescue.
So, let me pause a moment here. Is anyone else feeling like this season’s official poster is wildly accurate? Sookie is all about flirting with all her admirers…equally. Not sure how I’m feeling about that. Nothing wrong with it, but it’s making her seem a bit wishy washy. I mean, I get how mind-numbingly hot these three men are, but she just seems to be floating through it. Please let me know your feelings in the comments.
After Pam dresses down King Bill after being grilled about where Eric is, we head over to Hotshot for one of the most disturbing story lines ever.
Poor Jason is still tied to the bed and he’s being raped by woman after woman. The one he shoves off says that her brother/husband…brother, husband!…just bites her on the back of the neck and holds her down until it’s over when he screws her. She cries and says Jason is the best she’s ever had and yells, ”next.” Then they send in a little girl. Jason convinces her to let him go and she does. But…I have to say this here. I was more than a little disturbed by my own (and my viewing companions’) reaction to this scene. It’s awful. It’s gross. I’m also fully aware that if it was a woman in that same situation, I’d be even more horrified. I really hope the writers let Jason experience the aftermath of mass rape the way they would with a female character. Please weigh in below. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
Over at Castle Bill, Nan is trying to find out what happened to Eric. We see exactly how hardcore Nan is here as she dismisses Salem as a bunch of puritans who needed to get laid. The real info here though is about a massacre that happened 400 years ago in Spain “by a single witch with a reason to hate vampires.” She says that necromancers aren’t they same as they used to be. I’m wondering if she was involved. In fact, I’m wondering why she’s so single minded. I’m dying to find out her history.
In Marnie’s store, she’s deep in a dream…of the Spanish Massacre. A powerful witch is being burned at the stake while clergy joke about how to torture her. Marnie witnesses the entire thing and learns a chant from the witch…who is the woman possessing her. Uh oh. Powerful witch with a “reason to hate vampire” possessing a powerful witch in the present. I’m sure we’re going to get more info on this one. Did anyone else notice the hooded figure? Vampire? And can anyone figure out what the chant translates too?
