True Blood: "Flesh Blood," Eels And Hostages- Houston Press

The great Jefwithonef member of Team Talk Blood!

Season 3, Episode 11: "Flesh Blood"
"We can start again."
So sayeth Vampire Bill (Stephen Moyer) to Sookie (Anna Paquin) moments before Season 3's Big Bad crashes their ugly yellow car and takes them hostage in order to find out if fairy blood acts as the ultimate sunscreen, allowing the vamps to go to early matinee movies and other daytime activities.
The answer then is, no. No, we cannot start again, but that's no excuse not to try.
Mark Oliver Everett, better known as E of The Eels, has certainly tried a time or three to restart his life. Even a brief biography of his reads like the most tragic moments of the Sookie-verse. Substitute cancer and suicide for vampires and were-whatevers and, frankly, the story is startlingly similar. E's never given up though, and just released the third part of his trilogy exploring desire, loss, and redemption. The trilogy began with Hombre Loco last year, and its lead single "Fresh Blood."
