True Blood S7 Ep.3 “Fire in the Hole”

Recap: Pam confirms that Tara met the True Death.  Pam realizes Eric is infected with Hep-V.  Eric has a flashback to when the authority told Pam and him about Tru Blood.  Pam convinces him to find Sarah Newlin to get revenge.  The Japanese company that made Tru Blood finds her in L.A. first.  Alcide realizes Sookie is gone and starts to track her.  Sookie drinks Bill’s blood so he can sense when she is in danger again.  Lettie Mae is still running around tripping off of V.  Vince and the townspeople face off against Sam.  Vince’s vigilante group has proclaimed Vince their new mayor.  Sam escapes by shape shifting into a bird.  Jason considers having a family with Violet.  She tells him to man up.  Lafayette and James get high together.


Sookie plans to be bait for the Hep-V vampires, so she can be taken to where the prisoners are.   Sookie reveals to Bill that she doesn’t love Alcide as much as Alcide loves her.  Andy, Jason, Violet and Jessica try to find Sookie, but run into Vince’s vigilantes instead.  Mrs. Fortenberry shoots Jessica in the arm because she blames her for her son Hoyt leaving.  Violet rips her heart out in retaliation.  Sookie’s plan doesn’t work because Alcide, Sam, Jason, Andy, Viloet and Jessica show at the same time as the Hep-V vampires.  Sookie is saved and the Hep-V vampires are killed, but Alcide is shot and killed by one of Vince’s buddies in the mayhem.

Review: Sookie’s plan was horrible and not well thought out.  Alcide was killed in a silly way.  Killing him off now makes Sookie’s problem about not loving him as much as he loves her seem childish and stupid.  I guess the writers just plan to kill everyone off one by one this season.  It’s almost painful to watch.  At this point, I feel like I’ve invested so much time watching the show these last few years, that now I have to see it through to the end.

I am not feeling this season at all.  I don’t know what was worse; Sookie’s whiny reveal session with Bill or Alcide getting killed in such a dumb way. 

I guess the question is: Who will die next week?
