This Sunday’s episode of HBO’s TRUE BLOOD wasn’t half bad, actually, which is a good thing because I’ve been somewhat bored with this season so far. There are a lot of subplots going on that add nothing to the overall story and generally seem to only be there to fill up time. Episode 4 had plenty ‘o that, but it was a little better, so perhaps that’ll be a trend.
Episode #53 (5.05): LET’S BOOT AND RALLY:
Air Date: Sunday, July 08, 2012 @ 9PM
With time running short, Bill (Stephen Moyer) and Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) enlist Sookie (Anna Paquin) to probe for clues on Russell’s (Denis O’Hare) hiding place. Unable to deal with the demon magic inside him, Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) calls out to Jesus’ (Kevin Alejandro) spirit for help. Patrick Devins (Scott Foley) and Terry (Todd Lowe) are held hostage in the bunker of their Iraq War buddy Brian Eller (Brian Geraghty). Jason (Ryan Kwanten) wakes to a disturbing dream; Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) gives Tara (Rutina Wesley) advice on adjusting to vampire life; Sam (Sam Trammell) visits Luna (Janina Gavankar) with bad news.” (Written by Angela Robinson; directed by Michael Lehmann.)
