The Big Bon Temps Group Sex Party Is O-V-E-R

From Meredith at io9

And you thought True Blood couldn't get any more insane. This weeks naked and bloodied episode, the gang returns home from Dallas, and let's just say the heart souffle has hit the fan.

So yeah, True Blood, wow. Anyone else feel like the needed a stiff drink after sitting through an hour of that? Last night, True Blood did what it usually does best, went rat shit insane and just upped all the characters to a new level of cray-cray.

I've usually praised TB for lovingly embracing all things cheesy and silly. Well, last night True Blood bent cheese over and made cheese its bitch. It felt like the writers were all trying to outdo one another at a pitch meeting, and this isn't even the big finale.

Jessica's eating Hoyt's mom, Maxine, after she punched Hoyt in the crotch, Lafayette is smacking around Tara, Maryann is building a giant meat cross and Jason — well, he's kind of the King of the idiots isn't he, so he's pretty much just ruling the show.

This was one of those episodes where you're either along for the ride, or puking up black vampire bile out the window. So I decided to give in, and let the black eyed insanity take over and try and have some fun. With that said, it's time for the pros and cons.

Con: A sexy dream with Eric and Sookie, again! Am I going to have to be subjected to the wussification of Eric every week now? Just because it's Sookie's fantasy to make out with a crying muscle man who used to be all sexy and mean, that doesn't not mean it is mine.

The part about the wussification of Eric made me laugh so hard mainly because I've been telling all my friends that I want this E/S thing to come together slowly otherwise we'll wind up with a Norse Bill.
I certainly enjoy watching the dreams but I am content that, for now, they are only dreams.

Overall I agree with all the pros/cons of this article. Thank you for sharing it!

That's how we should take the Meredith reviews.she is a provocateur and a funny one

we are supposed to agree with everything ...

You are right she does have good insight

Since Eric is only appearing this way in Sookie's dreams, I think she is trying to humanize him in her own mind. We don't know what is really going on with him because no one has shown us yet.

I agree with many of the comments but mostly I did not care for this episode after the first few minutes. There were some funny lines, but it gave me no reason to ever watch the episode again. On the other hand, I have watched the episode from the week before half-a-dozen times.
