Season Six Epi Two The Sun

Post  Aslinn Dhan on Fri Jul 13, 2012 4:07 am

Episode 6.02 - The Sun
Sookie meets a handsome stranger; Eric takes on the governor; Bill contemplates his new powers. (Written by Angela Robinson; directed by Dan Attias.) Playdates: June 23, 24, 25, 26 and 27

Written by: Angela Robinson
Directed by: Dan Attias

On the bridge where Michelle and Corbett Stackhouse died, Warlow breaks through the portal. In the Stackhouse place, Sookie tosses and turns while the blood-on-vellum contract glows on the night table beside her bed.

The strange man that picked up Jason appears in front of his unmanned car and blasts it with light, saving Jason from crashing into a tree. Jason emerges from the car, his gun pointed at the man he believes to be Warlow. Very calmly, the man tells him he's not Warlow: "I'm your f*****' faerie grandfather." He proves himself by recalling important events in Jason's childhood, as well as the "juicy porn" Jason kept under his bed.

Nora and Eric arrive at Fangtasia to find Pam comforting Tara who's not healing after being shot by the LAVTF. Using a broken beer bottle, Eric extracts a silver bullet from her gut that also emits UV light. Pam and Nora fight over whether or not they should be afraid of humans now, but it's Eric who delivers the final verdict: "If the humans want war, we'll give them war."

At the Compton place, Jessica wakes to find Bill in a frenzy - he's plagued by visions of vampires being tortured by humans - and he can feel their pain. Suddenly, Bill collapses into a catatonic state. Unbeknownst to Jessica, he's escorted to Lilith by her three "blood sirens", who came to him in his study earlier. Lilith tells him, "It is beginning. Events have been set in motion." She wants him to finish her work, but won't explain how.

On her way to work, Sookie spots an injured man in a ditch. She tries to ignore him but her conscience gets the better of her. The man explains telepathically that a vampire attacked him after smelling his blood. Sookie learns he's a halfling just like her and she takes him home to clean him up.

A young woman, Nicole Wright, shows up at Merlotte's and approaches Sam - she knows what he is. Nicole explains she's the co-founder of the Vampire Unity Society, and she wants Sam to share his story with the world in order to save vampires and other supes. He refuses.

Sookie cleans the man's wounds and discovers that literal sparks fly when their hands touch. As he goes to leave, he reveals his name is Ben. Somewhat charmed by this handsome stranger, Sookie offers to take him to the faerie club where he'll be safe. Later, Jason brings Niall to Sookie's house and shows him the portal in the bathroom where Warlow tried to break through. Niall enters the portal and returns moments later with grim news: "It's worse than I thought."

Sookie walks Ben to the faerie club and he asks if he can take her out sometime to repay her kindness. Gently, she turns him down - she's not in the best place to start something romantic. Reading her thoughts, Ben asks who Bill is. Disconcerted, Sookie rushes off, apologizing: "It's not you. I just shouldn't be taking walks with handsome strangers. It never ends well."

Eric arrives at Governor Burrell's mansion, disguised as his 5:30 appointment, a man from the Wildlife Department. Shortly after, he reveals himself as vampire and glamours Burrell, telling him to rescind his anti-vampire legislation. Burrell surprises him by calling in his guards - he's wearing newly invented anti-glamouring contacts. He orders his guards to take Eric "to camp," but Eric takes flight and escapes.

Sookie returns home to find Jason waiting for her. She meets Niall, who tells her Warlow's broken through to their dimension, and that he's been obsessed with their family for thousands of years. Niall explains their family is of a royal bloodline; they're the original fae. He's also the king of their tribe, making Sookie a faerie princess. Warlow killed Niall's entire family when Niall was only three or four, and he's been tracking Warlow ever since, seeking revenge.

Niall shows Sookie how she can defeat Warlow - by channeling all of her light into a single ball that will "go super-nova, killing any vampire it touches." However, Sookie can only do this once - afterwards, she'll be fae no longer.

Sam returns home to Lafayette, who's been babysitting Emma. Alcide shows up with Rikki and Martha to return Emma to her pack, but Sam refuses. Emma, drawn out by the commotion, is snatched up by Martha. Sam and Lafayette try to take her back, but are stopped by Alcide's fist.

While Jessica prays to a vegetative Bill, the TV switches on to a newscast about human-on-vampire violence - matching Bill's earlier visions and snapping him out of his state. As Jessica realizes Bill can see the future, he has another vision - this time of Eric, Nora, Pam, Tara and Jessica burning to death in a white room.

Again, another tightly packed episode without a lot of unnecessary plot lines and a really sort serious tone.

I am not sure about the Sookie and Ben thing. It just seemed a little convenient.  I know that CH wrote the story about Sookie meeting a stranger and having a one night thing, but I hope Sookie has her alarm bells on....I am not sure I trust that boy...

Niall is an interesting study. I was disappointed that they did not cast someone a little nicer looking, but, last night, giving a Rutger Hauer the stink eye, I think he is gonna do okay. I just wished they had picked him a better wardrobe. Niall was known as a snappy dresser, Rutger on the other hand reminds me of an old maiden aunt...Just in his clothes at least. And poor old Jason. Did you note the little tinge of disappointment when Niall told him the fairy genes were not passed to him?

So, Eric does it again, he did his stupid human trick and he got in and found out a plethora of information: Like the fact the military developed all these defenses and they have these new weapons and they have a camp for Vampires, and I doubt it is a place where they roast marshmellows and sing Kumbyah. This is more in the vein of an Auschwitz/Sobibor/Treblinka sort of camp where they do tests on you and then cook you in an UV oven.....

Bill is still freaking me out a little, but Jessica was the one who was the scene grabber, tending to entranced Bill who telekenetically drained some blood whore. Which...it might be okay if you didn't want to leave marks, but kind of weird to watch...sort of like watching your python swallow a rat... But apparently, though Bill is an unknown quantity, I think he is meant to do battle with Warlow...Maybe that is why it was necessary for him to get all vamped up and drink the "kool aid" and go on this magik carpet ride. Anyway, I still have faith and I had to say I brushed a tear away when Jessica was praying to/for Bill and all the people she cares about. Note she even added Eric and Pam and Tara in there...

So glad that Eric was able to help Tara and get that thing out of her. Amazing the way we come up with stuff to kill each other.


TTFN...can't wait to hear your comments

It was an adventure just to be able to view the episode in this house last night, let me tell you! I missed the first episode and only caught the last few minutes and I was trying like the dickens to get my hbo go to work but it just wanted to give me fits and attitudes. You do not wish to know what I did with that response, suffice to say it played.  I had hoped to be able to see it in time to at least join in the last few minutes of chat but I missed out.

So on to the episode! I thoght it was really good. In the behind the making clip it was nice to see that they are trying to reflect back to its original roots some. It needs to and it is past time.

SO the good, the bad, and the ugly of it:

Of course my number one goodie has to be Eric. I loved the scenes of him playing human. I also appreciated something else. When he was being told about the baby vampires I almost thought he would cry. It is also not too often that anyone surprised Eric, let alone a human. What was his quote? Something to the effect of "You surprise me. That is rare quality in a breather" So imagine his shock and my surprise when the glamouring did not work. I don't know what kind of contacts they are, but I don't like them. Heck, any vampire who only wants for humans to "love vampires" can't be all bad, right? You know things have to be bad tho when Eric resorts to yelling. It's a shame it's the only way he can get people to shut up sometimes. He is pretty mad about this war I can tell you.
   eric

Pam and Tara. What I liked about the two of them this episide was that Tara shut up other than her screams of pain. Yeah, another weapon I am not fond of already. You had to admire Eric for getting it out for her as well. For once tho, Tara wasn't sucking up to or fighting with anyone or much of anything else. It was a nice change of pace. I really liked how Pam shared her TB with Tara too. Poor Pam tho, I really felt sorry for her when Nora was talking to her about Eric. I mean, it was great that Nora tried to make things a bit better, but poor Pam just looked like some beaten down, hurt little bird. A vulture maybe. One who would kill you given half a chance. But still an injured soul.

Nora I am not sure I would call Good per se, but she is on our vampires side, so that sort of defaults her. I found her quote about the passage in the vampire bible having been misinterpreted very interesting. It could refer to Bill day walking or it could mean that Niall, Bill, and those baby  fairies all need towork together to destroy Warlow and thus perhaps do Lilliths bidding. Or something else all together! Who knows....

Sookie is always knee deep in somesuch. Heck, she apparently cannot even walk to work without trouble finding her. By the way, since when does she walk to work? What happened to her little yellow PoS? So she met Ben. Meh. He doesn't do a darned thing for me but who knows. the way thry threw literal sparks, maybe it will replenish her "light". And is it only me who wonders why it never occured to her to ask why the fairies were "watching over her"? Well of course, because she is a fairy princess. And she is not even remotely upset that no one ever mentioned it to her. Hmmmnnn....

Niall, I like him. He reminds me of a friend. I love his sarcasm and his wit.I feel sorry for Jason tho since Niall makes it more than obvious he has no use for him and that he is a non fairy. He was very correct in his assesement of Jason but I still felt sorry for him. Jason that is. So yeah, Niall is a fairy charmer, no doubt. We shall see if he is trust worthy ot not.

We need more LaLa. Need I say more?

I felt sorry for Jessica but I also have to wonder if her head is on right sometimes. Would you be inclined to stay in that house with Bill, having seen all that? I'd be high tailing it for the hills. I did like her prayer for everyone but it kind of made me sad too because it made me think it might be her that goes this season.


The Bad:

They sure talked alot about Warlow but I didn't get to see much of him. I am starting to wonder if it is Warlow or Waldo?

Governor Burrell’s declaration of war against the vamps may make for a good season but I just see it ending in him getting killed. Of course one must simply do something to destroy all of those vampire weapons and all knowledge that they ever existed I think.

Lilith you can be no good. I did like your explanation to Bills question about if he was a God or not tho. "No. God made me as vampire, and Adam and Eve as human. I am worshipped as a god, as some may come to worship you as a god, but there is no god but God."


The Ugly:

Who has had enough of the weres and of Sam and all of this business already? None of them are ugly per se, but they are ugly on my nerves. Give Emma to Martha and sit down and shut up and tend bar Sam Merlotte! And Aclide, you best be holding back your little wolfie bitch there. Leaving Lala laying on the ground like that. What is wrong with your head Alcide, shame on you! Bad Dogs, BAD!!!

Terry and Arlene, omg you two are something else! Arlene you have that boy so twisted around its no wonder he just stands around with his mouth in this funny contortion all deaf, dumb, and mute. Arlene, I have tried for years to find a reason to like you and I still don't! You are the biggest hipocrite I have ever seen. Other than you giving it to Andy about his kids, I don't see much out of you that is worth repeating. Last time I checked Chirstians still beieved that you go to hell for lying.

Andy! Stop your whining and sniveling! She isn't coming to get your kids so face it. At the rate they are growing, you will only have them for a week. Buck up dude. Sheesh!

Those City Meddlers who want Sam to come out of the closet and tell the world about Shifters? Not bloody likely! I hope your camera falls to the ground and you fall on it shoving it where the sun don't shine. Our vamps need all the help and advantage they can get. Coming out now would not help I fear.

Other:

Bill gets his own catagory I think until we figure out what the heck. I am very concerned by Lilith's statement about him not getting to be Bill Compton any longer. Everyone will have to tread very carefully I fear if they have any hope of extricating Bill from whatever it is he has become. How cool and twisted was it when he fed, right? He is also quickly discovering that the so called gifts he has are curses as well. He had this smirk on his face until he say all the vamps being tortured and felt it. Not so fun now. I think I just don't like that he is still Lilith's puppet. I don't like that one little bit.

Sookie's little POS was wrapped around a tree in Season Five after Lala put a hex on it

http://www.nbcnews.com/entertainment/rutger-hauer-spills-true-bloods-new-big-bad-6C10336930

So here is a little something about Warlow/Niall. Not very spoilery but Rutger Hauer says that epi four is the one to watch

I knew she had wrapped it around the tree, but gosh, how often do they fix these cars? I figured they had fixed it and moved along.

Well the season begins right where it left off, her car has been towed away for three days or so...besides, she never works, she doesn't have the money to get it fixed. Maybe her new faerie squeeze will conjure her a car?

Ok, I could point to Aolani's commentary and simply say ditto but where would the fun be in that?  Annnnnnd away we goooooo!!!

Warlow - Welcome, you could be hotter'n a jalapeno pepper or butt ugly but who can tell with so little screen time.

Niall - You made being a grandparent an exercise in stalking, impressive.  Jeeze man, easy on the salt.

Jason - Grandpa Niall called it right when he said the faerie gene skipped you, he should have added that the smart gene skipped away too because who else would be heartbroken when they break Mr. Tallman causing interruption of their bird flipping talents.

Tara - Ouch

Pam - Yeah, Eric's being a total dick mitt, that's what men do.  Listen to auntie Nora, he loves you.  Oh yeah, and good to see you in pink again.

Arlene - You're pretty much a waste of airtime but you're totally right with your life and shit sandwich analogy.  Just saying.

Sookie - Only you could be late for work, find some guy on the side of the road and then blow off said work.  It's a wonder you have a job at all.  Oh yeah, when a completely busted ass guy starts hitting on you like that stray you picked up did  there's something stinky in Bon Temps and it's not the body that poor Jessica had to hide.

Lafayette - We can play tea party any time.

Sam - You're screwed.

Veronica - You were tasty and twisty.

Ben - I wouldn't trust you as far as I could blast you with one of those faerie power balls.

Andy - You play, you pay.  Suck it up.

Nora - God knows how many centuries you've been reading that book and you just found that little translation screwup?  Tsk tsk, and I thought you were a dedicated little zealot.

Eric - Only you could connect baby vampires and whooping cranes and only you could take the nerd/dork look and make it hot.  

Gov Burrell - I'm with Eric, you're a sanctimonious sack of shit.

Alcide - If that's your version of friendship then bugger the hell off.  Better watch who you screw with because somebody could neuter your aggressive ass that's how they deal with dogs who bite.

Danielle - You're a bitch, really.

Shifter freedom fighters - Yeah, you're gonna help... keep saying that, someone might eventually believe you.

Lil Miss Burrell - Girl, do you have any idea how many truebies would kick your privileged ass to be in your place?  Eric + open bedroom window = jealous Eric girls the world over.

Jessica - You touched a good many hearts.  Bless you baby girl.

Bill - I've still got nothing.  Honestly.

And that's how I saw it.

So the second epi didn't really grab me, but I tried to pay close attention to it in case I missed some important something or other and it bites me on the arse.

One of the things I liked about the epi is how the fairy babies are growing up so fast. I thought that was pretty good. But you would think Andy would have gone to see Sookie and ask for advice about raising four telepaths without telling her they are fairies....

And the thing with Tara was a bit heart stopping wasn't it. Didn't you like the way Pam was holding her hand while Dr. Eric was operating on her to get that bullet out?

And Willa is an interesting little thing. She really seemed hot for Eric's trot. And I too loved it when Eric was playing King Dork. That was very funny. And when he flew away, that was very clever.

I think at some point we need a little exposition on two things: How Bill felt when he drank the blood and what he is feeling now and why he didn't just didn't feed on that Meal in Heels instead of siphoning her like thieves siphoning a petrol tank. That was a bit gross.
