Finally, a lengthier description of episode 5.11, “Sunset,” below the Read More jumpline.
SUNDAY, AUG. 19, Episode #59 (5.11) : “Sunset”: Slipping further into religious fervor, Bill (Stephen Moyer) gives Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) an order she’s loath to carry out. Armed with a damning video of Russell (Denis O’Hare) and Steve (Michael McMillian), the military delivers an ultimatum to the Authority. Claude (Giles Matthey) and Maurella (Kristina Anapau) take Sookie (Anna Paquin) to meet the faerie elder, who may know something about an ancient family secret. Alcide (Joe Manganiello) reconnects with his father; Sam (Sam Trammell) and Luna (Janina Gavankar) hitch a ride into the Authority. Written by Angela Robinson; directed by Lesli Linka Glatter.
My thoughts: Hmmm, what could Bill order Jessica to do? Could it have to do with the shot of Jessica in a grave with Jason? I don’t for a second think they will actually kill Jason, but I wonder if she might fantasize about turning him or something. And what is this damning video of Russell and Steve? Doing what? And what will the military do to the Authority if they do not handle the Russell/Newlin situation appropriately? Roman had a point: there are more humans than vamps so in a straight out fire fight, I do think the vamps would be in trouble.
