On “True Blood” season six, episode three “You’re No Good” – which aired June 30 – Sookie, like always, is just trying to keep her fears at a reasonable level. But, once again, the story playing out with the rest of the vamps is more interesting: they’re figuring out how to fight back against the humans, who have never put up such a strong fight before.
But vamps aren’t the only ones battling humans on the HBO drama. The werewolves too realize that their secrecy is at risk, and they’ll do everything they can to protect those secrets. Through it all, Bill is doing the best he can to protect his kind — but he isn’t winning many points with anyone, other than Jess.
How will Bill save everyone?
By synthesizing more blood of course. But that synthesis is not so easily done. The non-immortal Bill thinks that the scientist – who Jess kidnaps – can create a new tru blood only if he has a blood to base that concoction on. And when Sookie, rightfully, declines to have her blood be the basis of the fake blood? Bill finally really and truly cuts ties with her, claiming, “You’re dead to me now, Sookie Stackhouse.” Good riddance.
Willa and Eric
Forget old relationships, because there’s some new highly suggestive ones on “True Blood” “You’re No Good.” Willa, the governor’s daughter, might be scared for her life, but she’s definitely kind of enjoying her time with Eric, especially in a coffin. She even tries to take some of Eric’s blood.
Naturally, the rest of the vamps aren’t so eager to have Willa around. Still, Eric insists, “The world is changing, Pam, and we have to change with it.” Pam doesn’t it see it this way; rather, she thinks Willa is the new Sookie. But, if anything, Willa is a breath of fresh air for this HBO drama in its sixth season. Willa doesn’t agree with her dad’s tactics – she reveals he has camp, where scientists study vamps – and, while she fears for her life, her attraction to Eric is becoming increasingly undeniable.
Speaking of that vamp camp, that’s where Reverend Newlin has been taken for experiments and lots of questions. Yet that’s not all. His foes are not just scientists, but his ex, Sarah, who believes that the camp is what the Fellowship of the Sun was always leading to: the eradication of the vamp race. But they’re not done with Steve yet; because he has info they want on Eric Northman.
Will Sam get Emma back?
While Sam embarks on a plan to get Emma back, the weres are busy keeping her secret when the cops coming a’calling. But that’s not nearly their most interesting part on “True Blood “You’re No Good.” Rather, the show surprisingly manages to portray the weres as even more unstable than the vamps when the Vampire Unity Society shows up, and the weres realize they have photos and videos of them. One by one the weres turn against the humans, despite Alcide trying to call them off. And one by one the humans die, except the leader who initially approached Sam.
In this massacre, Sam manages to get Emma, but he’s never one to leave someone behind, and he goes after the gal from the VUS. But the fight between Sam and the weres is far from over.
Waiting for Warlow
Sookie Stackhouse continues to bide her time, waiting for Warlow to attack, and her fairy godfather wants to know why she isn’t more scared. Sookie has a reasonable explanation — “I can barely remember the last time I wasn’t in danger” – but her whole stance and worldview is getting a bit tiresome. It is “True Blood” season six after all.
And now, rather than constantly worry about the oldest vampire in the world, Sookie gets to hang out with a potential new love interest, Ben. He’s helping Sookie’s fairy grandfather, because he’s the only one who can; Warlow killed all the other fae in the local “club” portal.
But Ben and the fairy grandfather aren’t the only ones with their sights on Warlow. Someone out there is looking for him too. And then Jason collapses; because, not surprisingly, those hallucinations are wearing on him.
Bill and the fae
Bill’s plot for fae blood isn’t going anywhere either. Once he realizes that Andy’s “kids” are all fae, a new plan forms, and he’s looking more and more evil by the second.
