'True Blood': Sex and violence

Tonight's "True Blood" featured lots of lovely sex and violence, which means it was like every other episode. Don't worry, this is a good thing.

Although Sookie started screaming the moment she awoke to Bill's face last week, she quickly asks everyone to clear the room so she can talk to him. This time, instead of Bill breaking things off Sookie is the one that puts the brakes on their relationship. It's all very sad, if you're into that whole "lovers who can't be together because of circumstances beyond their control" thing. Which I've heard is a popular theme in literature, or something. Right? Anywho, Hadley delivers Sookie a message that Russell is coming for her, and if they find her they will do horrible things to her. Later, Debbie Pelt shows up at her house to do just that. She and Debbie fight it out and Sookie manages to get her to leave, just in time for Bill to show up and them to make up in the aftermath.

Jason brings Andy by and wants Sookie to press charges against Bill, but she refuses. Jason is gearing up to go hunt Bill himself when Crystal shows up, beat up and soaking wet from swimming to his house so they can't "track her scent." Crystal finally explains that she's been betrothed to Felton since she was four, and he's the one that beat her up when she said she wouldn't marry him. Jason decides to go out to Hot Shot and take care of Felton himself, and when he gets there finds a dude eating a deer. Raw. As he's leaving he runs into Crystal's father Calvin and threatens him to leave Crystal alone. That is not going to work out well for Jason, my friends.

Back at Russell's house of vampire ill repute, Sophie-Anne is moving in and Russell's lover Talbot is not too happy. Russell decides he wants to bring Sookie in to help him in his new situation, but Eric tries to (gallantly? selfishly? who knows with him) steer him away from using her. And then...oh, and then. Then Eric volunteers to keep Talbot company while Russell tends to some business. And they do it. And it's awesome, especially when Eric kills him as revenge against Russell killing his family all of those years ago.

When Bill returns to his house, Jessica is happy to see him but Bill immediately releases her and asks her to leave saying he's "no good" for her. Jessica refuses, saying she doesn't want to be alone, and aren't those two just the cutest little pathetic pair in all of Bon Temps? They shake off the doldrums quickly and do some fun breakdance fighting in the living room. Then the angst returns, because being a vampire in love is hard, y'all. Things get even harder later when Russell shows up and tortures the both of them to get to Sookie. In the process, Jessica kills a werewolf and there's a good chance Hoyt sees her do it. Whoops!

Lafayette's mother breaks out of the hospital and he calls Jesus over to help him get her to go back. While he's there, Jesus gives Lafayette an interesting lecture about how he is very powerful, and selling drugs for him is dangerous for someone with power like his because it can go dark easily. Say what? Who (or what) the heck is Jesus? And WHAT is Lafayette? Warlock? Witch? Regular fabulous gay dude? On this show it could be anything.

Also in this episode: Arlene has visions of (a SMOKING HOT) Rene, Tara has visions of a (CRAZY) Franklin, Tommy joins Sam at Merlotte's but is having a hard time letting go of his old hangups, and Merlotte's hires a new waitress.
