Episode 7: Cold Grey Light of Dawn

Summary

A possessed Marnie manages to escape from Bill's home, and when he discovers she is planning to cast a spell to lure all vampires into the daylight, he is forced to issue an order that proves unpopular with his constituents. Meanwhile, Lafayette's new abilities as a medium enable him to catch a glimpse of the mysterious Creole ghost haunting Arlene's baby, and Pam's plot to get even with Tara is foiled by a curious crowd of locals

Review

At last: True Blood finally finds the heart of a storyline to sink its teeth into (sorry), and actually gets serious, which is no bad thing. Bill has learnt who precisely has taken over Marnie’s body, and exactly what she’s capable of. It’s not good news for the vampires, so the new king must impose his authority in the most painful of ways. Can the Bon Temps vamps resist a terrible fate? And could it presage the end of Sookie and Eric’s love before they’ve even had a chance to enjoy that morning-after glow? Don’t look into the light…
