True Blood Season 5 Episode 12 In a scarily accurate piece of titling genius, three times 'gone' is precisely the right description of this episode – the first for the broken vampire minds, the second for the broken man leaving town, and the third for the death of Godric – again. No one cares about creepy Mike the Coroner...
It’s taken a while, but it’s finally happened – Russell has revealed his day-walking master plan, and for some reason, certain members of the council were surprised. Had Bill and Eric, in the first blushes of their bromance, forgotten that they put him in the ground with that very specific knowledge? Poor show boys. Now that he’s at full strength, has a new boytoy, and all the power he could possibly wish for, the ex-King can now start being his old batshit self again – which apparently includes the occasional onset of a European accent. You have to wonder, is that just the way the craziness is expressing itself, or is Russell German? That’s a backstory worth telling, surely?
True Blood Season 5 Episode 12 Also getting quite comfortable in the increasingly crowded Batshit Vamp Camp are ex-bromancers Bill and Eric, the latter having succumbed to Lilith-fever after a successful second round of tripping off his tits. Or has he? Godric’s most recent, rather bloody appearance was a clear enough message that Lilith is bad news – hopefully Eric is once again bluffing, having learnt his 'never trust Bill' lesson. And with Russell’s current schism-causing outburst, now is the perfect time to turn what’s left of the Authority on its head.
With Jess in the mix at the underground lair, and Pam and Tara representing on the outside, this could be a very interesting turn of events. If for no other reason than Tara’s kickass, Last week on "True Blood:" Andy cracked a case and killed his mentor; the real Dragon revealed herself and got pummeled for her trouble; Eric made a break for it but got double-crossed by Bill; and Pam got deposed. A lot happened.
Not so much happened tonight, although there was one big emotional moment -- there's your Emmy reel, Deborah Ann Woll -- and Russell True Blood Season 5 Episode 12 helped set us up for an intriguing last two episodes.
It's the third night of the Tru Blood crisis, and there's been a 50 percent spike in vampire attacks as reserves of manufactured blood dwindle. Sookie is watching the news and is about to chow down on some Chinese when there is a knock at the door. She gets her gun -- this represents personal growth for our Miss Stackhouse -- and finds Mike, the crime scene technician, standing there. "I'm here about the body," he tells her. "Yours." And then he flashes his fangs. Sookie shoots him but misses his heart, and he throws her down and starts feeding on her thigh. She grabs the chopsticks and stakes him. "Good thing you didn't order pizza," Sheriff Andy says later.
Molly is brought into the chancellors' chambers with her own iStake strapped to her chest. Bill and Salome give her one last chance to accept Lilith, but she knows they're going to kill her anyway. So she tells them to bugger off. "You are destroying the world based on a book that is thousands of years old," Molly tells them. "You call that evolved? That is the opposite of evolved." And we finally True Blood Season 5 Episode 12 get to see the iStake (which Molly invented) in action. After that sanguine display, Russell wants to go out to eat with Steve ("I was thinking Greek"), but Salome wants Steve to stay in and prepare for his next television appearance. Russell wins. stake-anyone-who-looks-at-her-wrong attitude.
In the chamber with Lilith's blood, Bill removes a few drops from the ampoule as Nora brings Eric in. Bill tells Eric they can only keep him alive for so long; he must accept Lilith or die. "You saved my life, and in return, we will save your soul," Bill says. He offers Eric Lilith's blood, but he refuses. They force Eric to drink. Then Nora drinks some. Bill leaves, but watches through the surveillance camera what's going on in the True Blood Season 5 Episode 12 room -- which appears to be nothing.
But Nora and Eric see an apparition of Godric appear out of red smoke. "Lilith is a godless God," Godric tells Nora. "She will lead you and all around you to destruction ... I have done what you have failed to do. I evolved." But then Lilith appears behind Godric and puts her arms around him -- and then rips off his head. Godric explodes, drenching Lilith with his blood. Bill, still seeing nothing, looks conflicted. Yes, more so than usual.
Aha. Greek meant a fraternity, not a spanakopita. "Imagine a time when we will own not only the night, but the day as well," Russell purrs to Steve as they slowly dance. Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream" is playing in the background. "We can walk in the sun. There is a way and it is tantalizingly close to us." Steve: "Please take me with you." Russell dips Steve dramatically. "I thought you'd never ask." The camera pulls back, and we see a room full of drained frat boys.
Maxine Fortenberry is driving Hoyt home from the hospital when he springs his news on her: He's leaving Bon Temps for good, going up to Alaska to be an oil driller. "God's given me a second chance at life, and I ain't going to waste it." But he's got some unfinished business here. Jessica and Jason both turn up at True Blood Season 5 Episode 12 Merlotte's to meet Hoyt (Merlotte's, by the way, empties out when Jessica walks in, and Sam and Lafayette have to disarm a couple of anti-fangers who are itching to put a wooden bullet inside Jessica).
Hoyt tells them he's leaving town, and he wants Jessica to glamour him into forgetting that she (and Jason, for that matter) ever existed. "I want to lay down, go to sleep, close my eyes and not dream about you ever again," he says. Jessica doesn't want to, but she gives in, very sweetly giving him his wish. This is the most humane departure any character has ever gotten -- noble, even.
Jason, torn up about losing Hoyt, seeks solace from Sookie. "You know, in a funny way, it's like Hoyt has forgiven you," she tells him. "He wanted to, but he couldn't do it himself." The conservation turns to the investigation into their parents' deaths. Jason says True Blood Season 5 Episode 12 there wasn't anything in Bud Dearborne's files about it. He presses Sookie on what Gran told Lafayette. He looks through the box Sookie found, but when Sookie tells him that Gran told her to look under the bed, he gives her a withering look and pushes the bed aside, quickly finding a hollow spot and pries up a floorboard. Hercule Poirot better be looking over his shoulder.
Ep. 58 Clip - We Meet Again Inside is a rectangular box containing a scroll written in unfamiliar glyphs. They take the scroll to a professor at the University of North Louisiana, who thinks it must be some elaborate but ancient hoax, because the paper is 200 years old, but the writing is not in any known language. Human language, at least. Jason and Sooke trade a signficant look. Later, Sookie and Jason are driving along when they pass Hoyt's pickup heading in the other direction. Jason stops him, but Hoyt doesn't recognize him at all. Hoyt seems happy, and True Blood Season 5 Episode 12 Jason realizes this is the best thing for Hoyt. He goes back to his car and cries in Sookie's arms. Farewell, Hoyt. May you fall in love for the first time.
Sookie and Jason bring the scroll to Claude, who says that it seems to be in an ancient fairy language. They bring out one of the older fairies -- it's Maurella, the one who had sex with Andy, and who is now heavily pregnant -- and she does a little True Blood Season 5 Episode 12 hocus-pocus translation. It's a pact signed with fairy blood dating to 1702, in which John William Stackhouse promises his first fae-bearing female heir to M. Warlow. And Claude says that Sookie is the first female fairy in the family since then. Martha has spilled the beans to Luna that Russell made off with puppy wolf Emma and presented her to Steve as a gift. Luna and Sam find out that Steve will be in New Orleans to spar with David Finch, a congressman and "mortal rights activist" over the vampire crisis, so they hightail it to the Big Easy, shift into mice to sneak into the television station, and hide themselves in Steve's briefcase. At the debate, the congressman is alleging that the Tru Blood bombings are actually a vampiric conspiracy to return to feeding on humans. "Next thing you'll be saying is that we have a shadow government in an underground complex somewhere," Steve laughs. Finch: "You might." Steve, snappily: "We don't." True Blood Season 5 Episode 12
