“With what you are Fairy Princess, you need to be somebody’s or you won’t be”

After a week of salivating, viewers gathered around their TV sets to watch episode two of the newest season of “True Blood“.
For those of us who previewed the episode after last week’s premiere, our True Blood Withdrawal is still in high alert.
It’s not by chance that the episode’s is labeled “You Smell Like Dinner”. There is quite a bit of snacking going on and it seems, Sookie is determined to interrupt all of it. *laughs*
There seem to be a few story lines that have currently peaked everyone’s attention. Of course, topping the list is the highly anticipated “love connection” between Sookie and everyone’s favorite Viking Vampire, Eric Northman. After previous seasons deviations from the books, bookies everywhere are wondering where Alan will go with this couple this season.
“Your blood taste like freedom, Sookie. Like sunshine in a pretty, blonde bottle.”
Eric, as always is looking good enough to eat this Season, but I do find it charming, that in his own way… he is attempting to woe our fair-haired telepath. Even to the point where he asks her to be his, instead of insisting. Of course, he is still Eric and Sookie is less than pleased to find certain “home improvements” to her home.
“Mother f***er, he built himself a cubby!”
Another interesting story line is Queen *coughs* I mean, King Beehl. I hate to admit it, but I’m highly intrigued by King Bill this Season. Bill is proving to be a better Vampire than we all assumed. The rise in power has further advanced the interaction between Bill and Eric, taking it to the next level. While Bill has power as King, Eric still remains somewhat true to himself. From his clear lack of interest in what Bill has to say, to the over exaggerated way he bows, Eric has yet to lose his sense of humor. Though for all you bookies out there, it seems he’s lost something else.
Jason, by far has changed this season and yet, he still remains true to the character we were first met in Season 1. Held hostage in Hot Shot, Jason is confused as to what exactly is needed from him. Some familiar faces reappear in this episode and Jason’s has some of the funniest lines of the evening.
“Okay, two questions. Why is he okay with this? And if he ain’t part of the baby-making, why is he getting undressed?”
Looks like we might be adding one more to Team Were.
Some of the minor story lines are as follows:
- Arlene continues to be scared of her extremely adorable baby, while Terry struggles to remain calm about the situation.
- Tara returns for a visit and gets more than she bargained for.
- Viewers will discover exactly what happened to the broke Queen Sophie-Anne.
- Jesus and Lafayette continue their exploits with newcomer Marnie and her circle of witches.
- Hoyt and Jessica still struggle to maintain their relationship, culminating with Jessica being caught in and extremely compromising position.
- Pam and Jessica, both, put Sookie in her place.
Things are just heating up! If you haven’t enjoyed your taste of Dinner, be sure to check it out on HBOGO.
