Part 1 of 2: The Gentlemen
This week on The Twilight Zone True Blood: The Scooby Gang (aka Sookie and her man-ions) are finally enjoying their fond reunion with Russell Edgington when the Authority swoops in and captures him. Sam and Luna entrust Martha to take care of Emma while they practice some vigilante justice in order to find out who's killing shifters. Jason contemplates some vigilante justice of his own, taking Sookie to the fairy nightclub to get some answers about their parents' death. Meanwhile, Terry leaves town to protect his family from the fire monster, Tara continues to wrestle with both her new identity and Jessica, while Hoyt becomes even more sad. I didn't realize that was possible.
Hopeless is certainly a good word to describe life in this sleepy little Louisiana town. Well, not completely, I suppose - judging by Alcide's abs they at least have a good gym in the vicinity:
It's all about quality of life in a community, right? That makes two episodes in a row that open with these babies and all I have to say is 'well done, producers'.
Sadly, our rock-hard wolf here stays fully clothed for the rest of the episode, but thankfully in a pretty hot outfit.
Chambray shirt and leather jacket - a little bit chic, a little bit blue collar. Suitable for covering the muscles, yet still showing the shape, yet practical for when those claws and fangs decide to spring out (and the clothes fall in the dirt). And can I get an amen for a man's shirt on this show that is NOT a henley or an undershirt?
Hmmm...it appears I spoke too soon.
Well, Jason was sleeping so I suppose I can accept the undershirt as a practical pj option for a steamy night in the South. At least he's dressed like a grown man and not a five year old on Christmas morning.
Besides, the dream that he has in this scene is one I wouldn't mind having sometime:
Why, hello, Mr. Stackhouse! I can see where Jason gets his good looks from. Ok, I realize that this is a whole 'Field of Dreams' moment and that if he were still around today he would be a 50-something with a beer belly and a creepy sneer, but his imaginary self is attractive. And he's wearing a button-up shirt that is NOT plaid!
Speaking of which, what is with the ghosts in this town dressing better than the real, alive people?! Remember the beautiful vintage-dressed black lady lurking around Arlene and Terry's house last season? People, it's pretty sad when your dead people are more fashionable than you. That should really speak volumes.
Oh hai, plaid shirt! How've you been? Haven't seen you in a while - how was your vacation? See any sundresses in your travels?
Sadly, the rest of the male crew were a pretty big snoozefest in the wardrobe department. Eric and Bill were in the same old black leather jackets that they have been in almost the entire season, which, although I agree are slick and go with the whole 'undead creature of the night' vibe they are putting down, they are nothing to write home to Grams about, know what I am saying ladies?
...wait...what was I saying?...
Right, clothing *ahem* So, Lafayette's (I am counting him under the "Guys" section, although he's kind of between camps) depression continues to manifest itself in his wardrobe (le sigh). While he did manage to put on a fab tiger-print headscarf, the jean jacket and yoga sweater layers are not doing you any favours. Someone needs to get La-La some uppers, stat; or better yet, give them to me because I just can't take any more of these construction-worker ensembles!!
*sadface* is THE look for Summer 2012.
But, hark, what is that I see?! A lavendar collared shirt and dress pants?! We can't be in Bon Temps anymore, Toto:
We are now at the Authority HQ - where people actually put effort into their appearance (this man had a beret on earlier - a BERET, y'all). THIS is a gentleman. This outfit is basically a high-end version of Alcide's above leather jacket and collared shirt, but sans danger of getting wolf spit all over it (just the blood of Lilith but whatevs - blood comes right out...not that I would know).
