As if vampires, werewolves, werepanthers and shapeshifters weren't enough, Sookie Stackhouse and her allies in Bon Temps are about to face another round of otherworldly threats. It's time to bare your fangs for Season Four of this acclaimed HBO drama series that continues the story of this human/fairy waitress with telepathic gifts and an irresistible attraction to a vampire named Bill Compton....


Episode 9: Let's Get Out of Here


The showdown between the witches and vampires concludes with Eric falling under Antonia's spell and being reprogrammed to assassinate Bill. A V-addled Debbie cooks up a scheme to ensure Sookie will not steal Alcide's affections, and Tommy tries to make amends with Sam by confronting alpha werewolf Marcus. Meanwhile, Jesus is forced to intervene when a possessed Lafayette ends up in a stand-off with the Bellefleurs.


As the end of series four looms, the days when True Blood was merely about vampires and humans now look like mundane, kitchen-sink realism. Tonight, a couple of plotlines are hastily rubbed out and new ones scribbled in, the climax being a gun-toting showdown between drug-tainted hicks the Bellefleurs, and Lafayette. Jesus sorts it out. I mean Jesus the character, although at this point you wouldn’t blink if the actual Jesus rode in on a moped.
