“I had a bad dream.” ~ Eric


I had a dream … Godric was there
Our favorite 2,000 yr old vamp makes an appearance in Eric’s dream. This time Godric’s not the peaceful mentor, but the “you know you wanna drink her blood and be able to walk in the sun” type. He gets Eric all hot and heavy, fangs drop and he’s panting over Sookie when he awakes from his nightmare.
Still aroused from the dream, he wanders into Sookie’s room. She’s startled awake before he can take a nibble. Old Eric would’ve taken what he wanted, but Eric 2.0 goes Weepy Wendy and tells Sookie, “I had a bad dream.” He lays down with his head in her lap and cries bloody tears seeking comfort.

He says he’d never hurt someone as beautiful as her. He asks permission to stay with her, she agrees as long as he keeps his hands and fangs to himself. While they spoon, it’s obvious that his vulnerable new self is slowly, but surely breaking down Sookie’s “I’ll never be with Eric Northman” wall.

Tara pops over for some BFF support after her girlfriend finds some mail with her real name and address on it. Needless-to-say, Naomi is hurt to learn that “Toni” has lied to her. Sookie advises Tara to go to her now and fight for the girl she loves. She’s also trying to get rid of her before Eric saunters out of his cubby. Tara realizes something’s up with Sookie and before she can tell her, Eric walks into the room. Tara freaks out, screams and cusses at Sookie for housing such an evil vamp after all he’s done to her. When Tara leaves, Eric is once again saddened to learn that everything Tara said is true. And when the wall finally comes tumblin’ down, we get our moment … Eric and Sookie k-i-s-s-i-n-g! If you missed it, here’s a loop for ya.

I had a dream … I killed mama and papa
Tommy, still caught in Joe Lee’s choke collar, passes out – or so they think. Instead he jumps Joe Lee and wraps the chain around his neck trying to kill him. Mama’s none to happy and starts beating on Tommy begging him to stop. Joe Lee just won’t die – kinda like a cockroach – so Tommy grabs a pipe and beats him in the head until he’s dead, dead, dead. Only problem, mama got so angry and kept jumping Tommy, so he OOPS! kills her too.

In his panic, he packs them up in a van and heads to Sam for help. Sam helps Tommy wrap them and drives them to the swamp for gater bait. On the way, Andy pulls him over demanding to see in the back of the van. Tommy, grew a brain for 5 seconds and shifted into a gater to scare him off. The bodies, which are floating, are finally gobbled up by gaters when Sam tosses in some marshmallows because, “Gators love marshmallows. You should know that.” Umm, ok.

I had a dream … I f**ked Jessica and Hoyt was there
At the end of the last episode, Jason was found passed out on the side of the road by Jessica and Hoyt. Jessica feeds Jason some of her blood to help heal his wounds. They get Jason home in bed to rest and recover. Hoyt can sense something is up with Jessica, she’s being distant, but insists she’s just exhausted from being a blood donor. Hoyt, not buying what she’s sellin’, decides to stay with Jason for a bit. The brofriends have a chat about Jason’s Hot Shot “experience”. He tells Hoyt, in his best God-voice (actually sounded more like the movie trailer guy, but no less hilarious) “Jason Stackhouse, you have f**ked too many hot women. Now let’s see how you like it!”

Back at home, Jessica crawls up Jason and he’s quick enough to ask, “Is this a dream?” Jessica confirms and he puts a short stop to the seduction as he feels a pang of guilt over Hoyt’s love of Jessica, then he blows it off … it is a dream after all. While smexin’, she keeps calling out Hoyt’s name which is freaking him out, but nothing does that as well as Hoyt showing up on top of Jason which shocks him awake.

I had a dream … my face was falling off
Poor Pam! She shows up at Bill’s decked out in her best funeral attire, veil and all. He says, “Oh good, the world needs more beekeepers.” Best Bill line in a looong time. She is understandably pissed off and exclaims, “You f**k with my face, it’s time to die.” She demands that he “Convene your sheriffs so we can kill this uppity wiccan c**t … your majesty.”
He tells her that cannot be done, vamps cannot kill humans. Bill’s wicca spy meets with Marnie and Bill’s goons step in to “arrest” her. They lock her up in Bill’s state-of-the-art prison. He whammies her to find out exactly what she knows about the disappearance of Eric and how to reverse the melting spell on Pam. As we all know, she knows nothing. Pam and Bill meet with the other sheriffs in Louisiana to discuss the wiccan threat. Pam accidentally spills, in front of them all, that Eric has had his memory wiped. Bill demands to know everything she knows and where he is staying. Pam can’t resist his Kingly powers and tells him Eric’s at Sookie’s house.

I had a dream … Zzzzz I dosed off, what’d I miss?

Jesus convinces Lafayette to head to Mexico to visit Grandpa. Why? When Jesus was young, his grandpa gave him a goat. Little Boy Jesus was thrilled to have a pet, only grandpa had other plans. Demanding he kill the goat and take in his essence. When he did, he felt something so powerful …. he believes that power is what he and Lafayette need now to protect themselves from two vamps and a crazy ass witch.

Sookie listens in on Holly’s inner monologue and learns about the Moon Goddess Emporium. She heads over there and introduces herself to Marnie. When Marnie refuses to do a reading for her, she says, “When I was a kid, my two favorite TV shows were Sabrina and Charmed!” Marnie gives in and during the reading Sookie’s Gran shows up. Gran tells Sookie not to lose her heart to this boy, his situation is temporary. Then, she tells Sookie to stay away from this witch, she’s dangerous … RUN! Sookie thanks Marnie, telling her when her Gran tells her to run, she runs.

Arlene is freaked by the writing on the wall. Terry calls for some religious back up to cleanse the house of Rene’s spirit. Turns out the preacher he calls is Reverend Daniels and his wife, Tara’s Mom. They sing some songs and do some smudging around the house. Great line: Arlene says, “Smells a little like pot.” Terry responds, “Not really.” Convinced that took care of their problem, they have some satin sheet nookie and spoon. On the dresser, a matchbook lights and burns out on it’s own.

Alcide gets a visit from Shreveport’s pack master, Luna’s baby daddy. He tells Alcide he’s been in town long enough and should’ve registered with pack by now. Alcide’s decided to go it alone and tells him to buzz off. (In case you haven’t seen it, Alcide, in all his hot muscled glory, is sportin’ the cover of Muscle & Fitness’ July 2011 issue. The photos are hawt! It’s a MUST see!)

Portia just can’t take no for an answer and shows up at Bill’s with reasons why incest isn’t a good enough reason for the two of them to stop f**king seeing each other. He puts the vamp whammy on her so that anytime she sees him she’ll want to run from the room screaming, which she does.


Check out the trailer HBO premiered at Comic Con! Looks like it should be an interesting season!
