True Blood

Series 3 - 6. I Got a Right to Sing the Blues

Jack Seale

Blood spilt by the pint tonight, every which way. Before the opening titles we see a vampire staked – a rarity in True Blood, because involves a shelf of guts splashing sensationally onto the floor, which is hard to top.

This episode gives it a go, with an old-fashioned punch-up and some voracious blood-drinking, but also with darker, sadder shades of crimson as Bill and Lorena have what looks like their last hysterical showdown. Bill’s spurned her repeatedly across the centuries, and now she’s fondling a set of scalpels as oddly beautiful tears (vamps cry blood, remember) streak down her face. Is he done for?

As a break from all this tingling peril, Jason and Lafayette both look more deeply into the eyes of their new partners. But even that’s tense because these days in Bon Temps, virtually nobody is what they seem. At least one of them's bound to be mad, evil or a giant lizard with human skin on. Where's your money?
