Better late than never! Lengthier descriptions of episodes 5.7 “In the Beginning,” and 5.8 “Somebody That I Used to Know” below the jump.
SUNDAY, July 22, Episode 7: “In The Beginning”: Bill and Eric get a powerful taste of sacred blood. A revelation at Hot Wings causes Sookie to wonder what her life would be like without faerie powers. Meanwhile, Sam sniffs out several shifter shooters; Hoyt finds camaraderie in a new group of friends; Alcide prepares for the worst in his faceoff with J.D.; Andy attempts to reconnect with Bud; Lafayette finds an unlikely ally searching for Jesus’ body in Mexico; Lettie Mae (Adina Porter) pays Tara a visit; Arlene takes a sentimental journey as her concerns for Terry deepen.
SUNDAY, July 29,”Somebody That I Used to Know”: At Authority headquarters, the Chancellors revel in the afterglow of recent events; Eric gets a message from Godric; Bill is shaken by a distant memory. Helped by Claude and his sisters, Sookie and Jason visit the site of their parents’ deaths, with shocking results. An emotional Luna tries to walk in Sam’s shoes. Hoyt’s new pals bring him a present; Lafayette leads a séance to purge a curse; J.D. ups the stakes of his fight with Alcide.
My thoughts: Luna skinwalking! And it sounds as if Hoyt’s present is going to be Jessica. Bring on Ghost!Godric; I think he’s the key to Eric’s burgeoning humanity (and consequent) Sooric link-ups. Um. And “Hot Wings”? Seriously?
