NY Magazine-Vulture posted the recap of last night’s True Blood episode
The groundwork for an epic showdown is in place, with this week’s cliff-hanger of an ending. And if everyone was on point this episode — from Pam’s killer one-liners, to Jessica potentially taking one for the team, to Tara throwing her hat into the ring of what could turn out to be the enemy — all pales in comparison to the golden orbs of Alexander Skarsgard’s ass. It really stole the show.
The Bitch Is Back
Marnie’s still in prison, but something’s off — her Spanish is fabulous and Luis, last seen in the midst of flashback rape, is now under her control. Luis kills Katie the traitor, spilling no blood. Antonia Gravilan of Logrono has returned!
Bill decants some blood into a brandy snifter when Luis the Possessed enters the room. He’s come to deliver a message from Antonia. She’s ba-ack! “All things are possible,” he intones, and then shoots BIll. The King is about to stake Luis, but he stakes himself instead, whispering “Resurrection.”
Bill the Service-y lays it out yet again for Jessica: Antonia is a mean old necromancer from back in the day who is the only human ever to wield power over vampires. Now she’s back, using Marnie’s body as a vessel, and wants to finish what she started in 1610. Luis mentioned the Resurrection, which means tonight is the night. He instructs his sheriffs thusly: Everyone must go to ground tied up in silver today, so as not to be called to meet the sun.
I Called the Witch Doctor, and This Is What He Said
In Mexico, Lala and Jesus wait for Abuelito, who’s too busy doing his wife to tend to his grandson. It’s time for them to go home because their mission has been accomplished. Lafayette knows about his gift — he’s a medium. This is not news to Jesus or Abuelito, but no matter. This entire south-of-the-border fiasco was to show Lafayette who he really is. “You have the magic,” Abuelito says, throwing the keys back to Lala. Gracias, Abuelito. You’re a peach. On the way home, Jesus tries to stress the importance of Lafayette’s gift, but Lala’s not sure he wants to be on call to the spirit world.
Tara needs support from the coven so Marnie can exact her revenge. Holly is a wary recruit — her house burned down, and she needs to get get back on her feet. Tara’s awfully persuasive. It doesn’t take much until the original circle is united once more.
Arlene and Bad Baby are at work, watching over Holly’s date with Andy, who’s all dressed up. The date isn’t going so hot — Holly’s trying to make the best of it, despite Andy’s V-induced delirium tremens. When Holly asks if he’s okay, he bolts.
Lala’s back in the kitchen at Merlotte’s, playing peek-a-boo with Bad Baby. Bad Baby’s got his eye on someone else, though — the lady from underneath the tree. Putting a finger to her lips, she shushes Lafayette and starts singing in French. Lafayette’s yell scares Arlene, and the woman is gone.
We Can Do It Anywhere
Eric and Sookie continue their sex-a-thon, having fucked their way from the bayou to the foyer, living room, and bedroom, where they finally come to rest. Time for some pillow talk.

Will she be able to love him when he’s back to his old self?

Sookie thanks her ex-boyfriend for letting Eric go, but Bill has other things to discuss — Eric needs to come with him, lest he rise under the influence of Marnie to meet his fiery death. BIll upends a bag full of silver chains onto the coffee table. If Sookie really loves Eric, she’ll silver him to his bed tonight.
