Episode Synopsis: the Authority continues to pretend that they aren't devout Sanguinists, but Russell tires of that, vowing to "have the sun", aka fairy blood. Eric pretends to accept Lilith, and Bill brings Jessica to the AVL to keep her safe. Back in Bon Temps, Sookie and Jason find a contract that gives them another puzzle to figure out, Tara offs the new sheriff, Jessica glamors Hoyt into forgetting all about her and Jason, and Sam and Luna go on a rescue mission as mice. You know, just the usual shenanigans.
Let's start things off fabulously, shall we? Lafayette's over-the-top ridiculous ensembles are back, complete with headscarf and giant sparkly 'L' buckle. Just in case you forgot who he was.
I'm going to ignore the single feather earring (does Lala watch Pretty Little Liars?), because the leopard print tank + sparkly sweater? AWESOME.
Also note-worthy: his baby blue snakeskin kicks. Did you steal these from Billy?
I think Pam's outfit confirms that they read YKYLF in Bon Temps.
Clearly she borred this look from Zoe's collection of spiked leather jackets. But the leather dress? All Pam. Plus her hair is looking back to its glam self after the horrid crimping mess of late.
...or apparently I spoke too soon? It looks like Pam let a three-year-old play hairdresser on her (as if...Pam wouldn't go near a kid with a ten-foot pole). Love the merlot, Victorian inspired dress, though.
Speaking of Pam and her progeny, Tara is seriously killing it. The McQueen-esque jacket and spiked jewellery are a far cry from her old wardrobe. Vamp=fabulous as far as I'm concerned.
So in love with Tara's cobalt leather jacket. She accessorizes nicely with a giant sword from Eric's Viking days.
Actually, no, the sword was to kill Eric's sad replacement, Nigel, who favors Mardi Gras jewels and ripped jeans. Thank goodness he's gone. I really didn't feel like recapping his outfits.
Let's hope Eric will be back soon to take his rightful place, because the poor boy is still trapped in the AVL's headquarters, divested of his leather jacket.
Probably because the rest of the Authority didn't want anyone thinking he was a part of their leather brigade... there seems to be a predilection to leather in the AVL, no?
They've even got Jess in on it!
They do branch out, though. Like Salome's elegant, but boring navy dress.
Or Nora's awesome burgundy cutout dress.
I guess jewel tones are the thing at the AVL. Jewel tones and leather. Just in case you get an invite to one of their parties.
And then there's Rosalyn, a proper Southern women in her pearls and tweed jackets.
Or Kibwe (that's really his name. I looked it up Wikipedia.) and his bizarre patterns and odd choice of a cravat and grandpa sweater.
Back to Jessica. She actually looks like... a normal teenager. Not a fabulous baby vamp whose daddy is the King.
Mad love for her dangly heart earrings though. It's all about the accessories.
And accessorizing with weapons is the new thing! Here Sookie pairs her blah floral pjs with a sleek gun.
I honsetly think Bill needs to come back to Bon Temps because Sookie is in a sartorial rut. WHERE ARE THE CUTE SUNDRESSES?!? Here we have a conservative rose-printed dress... paired with adorable slippers. Oh Sookie, so predictable.
Maybe she can learn a thing or two from her fairy friends. Morella is an absolutely stunning in this silk handkerchief dress. I love the pattern, and the color is totally in line with the fae's tendency towards the gaudy/tacky.
Speaking of tacky, that's exactly what Morella's costume jewellery is.
And the fae-boys are in on it, too. Not many guys can pull off Chinese-inspired silk tops. It must be a fairy thing, because Claude does it effortlessly.
Wait... do you think Lafayette could be a fairy? Who but La-La gives the fae a run for their money in the Tacky Olympics?
