True Blood Season 7, Ep.5 Review

pam and willa

While Sunday’s episode of True Blood, “Lost Cause” seemed to be headed in the same stagnate direction as the last four episodes, a curve ball arrived in the final minutes of the show that seems to have catapulted “True Blood” back into the land of the living.

First a small recap… just to keep things interesting.

Sookie hosts a “celebration of life” party that is very eventful as Andy proposes to Holly, Lafayette hooks up with Sam that leads to Jason hooking up with Jessica. Arlene gets drunk and “checks out” a vampire, and while it doesn’t go anywhere, Sookie gets cozy with Bill.

Pam and Eric also keep up the interesting hair and dress choices as they attend a Republican gala to find Sara Newlin’s parents and the location of Sara. And yes, they truly did look like assholes.

They do meet up with Newlin along with yakuza, who are also after Newlin. What happened next will have to wait till next week as we find the dynamic duo “all wrapped up.”

However, back in Bon Temp, Sookie morns Alcide’s death probably for the last time and Bill takes a bath where recounts his old Civil War days.

As I said last week, I’m not sure what all the flashbacks mean, but I’m assuming there is a reason for everything and so, we will just have to wait and see.

However, we do get a nice surprise at the end when Bill steps out of his bath and realizes that he can now count himself among the Hemp V infecting vampires.

Now that’s a curve ball. Nicely done, True Blood, nicely done.

Next week looks like things continue to pick up and who knows, we might actually be able to salvage the final season.
