Recap: True Blood, season 3, episode 10 – ‘I Smell A Rat’ by Becca Wilcott

Team Talk Blood member Becca Wilcott Episode 10 recap...

Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer got hitched this past weekend! Congratulations to one cute couple who rock the beach attire like no others!

Would that I could squee with the same delight over last night’s episode. And how unfortunate that it was titled “I Smell a Rat” because the online stinkin’ flingin’ had begun before the episode had even ended. Something just didn’t click. The material was all there. The revelations were huge. Everyone was having a good hair day. There was even a hunky hustler, 90210′s Michael Steger.

So, what happened? I’m just taking a hit off of Jesus’ mad intuition skills, but I think everyone was working off Sam’s hangover or in need of a nap. They don’t all have to be winners, folks. Just the same, I think we’ll shelve “I Smell a Rat” near the back with the rodenticide.

We learn that Sookie is a fairy. That in itself should have been a big deal and worthy of a flashback or moment of thoughtful contemplation on her part. But Sookie thinks it’s lame. Has she forgotten that fairies come with Go-Go Gadget Super Duber Electric Hands? She’s a walking defibrillator, for crying out loud. Not to mention, after three seasons of only metaphorically saving Bill’s life with her sweet, sweet looove, her blood appears to offer vampires a temporary sun shield of sorts. At the very least, her blood is delicious and nutritious! Also filed under Missed Opportunities, when Bill tells Sookie she’s a fairy, how hilarious would it have been if she’d replied, “What the f-ck am I?!” (See what I did there?)
