[Warning: Spoilers for "Hopeless" and "In the Beginning"]
So, it has to be said that we’re in complete and utter denial over the events of last week’s episode. We had high hopes that Christopher Meloni would be part of the True Blood vampire family (and the Authority) for longer than a few episodes. Alas, it wasn’t meant to be. R.I.P. Roman. Russell Edgington is back and, presumably, badder than ever.
Synopsis for “In the Beginning”: Salome reveals her true allegiances while 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 face-off with J.D.; Andy attempts to reconnect with Bud; Lafayette finds an unlikely ally searching for Jesus’ body in Mexico; Lettie Mae pays Tara a visit; and Arlene takes a sentimental journey as her concerns towards Terry deepen.
We’ve got three clips from tonight’s episode:
Together at Last (some general disorder and craziness going on in the wake of Roman’s death)
Disturbance in the Force (something’s up with Sookie’s faerie powers)
Sam’s got a secret (and he’s sniffing out the bad guys)
True Blood “In the Beginning” airs tonight at 9/8c on HBO.
