Episode Synopsis: Will you all hate me if I confess that this was the first full episode of True Blood I've ever seen? I blame you guys. Why didn't anyone TELL me this show was so good? I am officially hooked, what with Jason all tied up to a grungy-looking bed the entire episode, while Crystal drifts in and out then finally proclaims that they need to "make a baby" BUT only after he becomes a panther...ouch. Bill has some flashbacks to the 80s and his punk-rock time--glad we got out of that era. Lafayette and Jesus are now part of a Wiccan coven which ends up doing some strange things to Eric. And Sookie, well...she seemed to just be getting back in to the groove of things after everyone pretty much thought she was dead.
Let's start off with my favorite look of the episode. Sookie's little denim (or is it chambray?) dress and mustard yellow cardi was also Kim's choice for best outfit in the mini-recap, and I couldn't agree more! The mustard yellow is the perfect complement to the blue dress. Cute and casual.
Flashback to the Queen. Long live the Queen! Except for that one time when she died. If I was going to be shot by multiple S.W.A.T team guys, I would so want to go down in something inspired by Dior's New Look. Fierce but classy, what more can you ask for?
Luna weerrks this dress. It may be a little too body-con for day, but it's perfect for for seducing someone no matter the time of day. And she's got that amazing Pretty Little Liars hair. Loose, wavy, and full. Plus killer gladiator heels. See my face? This is my jealous face.
Speaking of seduction, Katerina didn't need to do much of that with Bill. She's on...his security detail, was it? Uh-huh. I think the only thing she's securing are his nether regions. Here's her sweet blue blouse with a vamp-eater teddy underneath and a cozy olive sweater and woven belt to put on when she's been booted.
I have selected Pam as one of my favorite characters. She'll be getting a plaque in the mail. But seriously, anyone who can deliver dry one-liners while rocking a tight red, sequined mini-dress is tops in my book. Sure, it's slightly costume-y, but wearing costumes seems to be her thing.
See, another costume. Alyson showed us a glimpse of this last week...here it is again in all its badass glory.
Tara is teetering on the verge of yawn, but luckily she spices this outfit up with that big ol' belt buckle. Sassssy!
Bill had two flashbacks this episode. In this first one he meets Nan in a dark alley...in the 80s. Guys, I'd time travel for her jacket. If it hadn't been for the blue eye shadow, poofy hair, and ginormous earrings, this could totally pass as one of Serena van der Woodsen's many fabulous cold-weather looks.
Another one of Bill's flashbacks, another memory of Nan. Wow, she's really under his skin, huh? Here she surveys the Queen-killing in a constrictive leather coat and slicked-back hair...an outfit worthy of an assasin.
Back in the present, let's pop in on the coven! Never in my life have I seen so many iterations of denim, batik, and general hippy-ness. Marni looks slightly less frumpy than last week, however. Baby steps...
Speaking of frumpy...it was hard to get a shot of Crystal, but here you go. Is she frumpy? Is she sexy? Is she strung out? I vote "D" - all of the above.
Jessica, on the other hand, is definitely sexy in her electric blue corset top. Her only accessories are a simple gold bracelet and a look of shame.
