True Blood’s last episode left viewers with another cliffhanger as Sookie got shot in the middle of the vampire witch battle. Bill knew it had happened immediately but his fear for Sookie allowed him to be trapped by the witches wielding silver chains which they wrap around his throat. Eric is under Antonia’s control so he was no help, he only does what the witch tells him to do. Will this be the end of Sookie?
Thankfully Alcide saved the day. The conundrum though was Alcide’s girlfriend, Debbie, was in the shadows watching right after she and Alcide agreed he would never help Sookie again. So, as episode nine begins, Alcide has made it back to Sookie’s house to try and save her but Bill arrives at super vampire speed to try and give her some of his healing blood. She is not drinking though and there is a moment of fear for Alcide and Bill as they actually think she might die. Enough so that Bill mentions maybe they should pray.
Having Bill’s blood again does finally save her but there are some interesting consequences as she later starts to have dreams of both Eric and Bill having their way with her – basically it’s a threesome – and Sookie is the one in control. It seems at least in her dreams she wants to have her cake and eat it too (no pun intended…).
Alcide finally washes his hands of Sookie when she recovers and demands everyone start looking for Eric. She never seems to learn but it certainly makes Alcide angry. Debbie shows up at Sookie’s door and forms an uneasy alliance with Sookie. Debbie’s job is to break into the magic shop with her to try and rescue Eric.
Lafayette has been possessed by the ghost woman, Mavis, and she stole Arlene’s son right out from under the nose of Andy, Terry and Arlene. Lafayette/Mavis also took Andy’s gun during the kidnapping process and ends up shooting at Jason and Andy when they come to get back Mikey. This leads to a showdown outside the house where Hoyt lives because that was the house the ghost lived in when she was alive.
Jesus arrives and tries to convince Mavis that she has taken over a man’s body and that it is not hers to keep. This whole side story with Mavis confused me at first before I finally realized that all Mavis wants is closure for herself and her baby who was taken away from her. She simply wanted to see her son again and she finally understands what she has done – taken another’s woman’s baby away – and she gives baby Mikey back to Arlene. Jesus and the crew find Mavis and her son buried under a tree and they hand the skeleton of her son over to her. She cradles the baby skeleton and this gives Mavis some closure and she disappears. I guess that’s the end of that storyline. Will Mikey be normal now? Will we have to see that ugly baby doll again?
Jason goes to visit Hoyt and finds him packing a monster box for Jessica. All of her belongings are in it and Hoyt tells Jason to give it to her. Jason is reluctant at first but finally agrees. His primal side cannot resist Jessica as they get it on in the back of his truck. Whew – I was worried there was going to be a woman in Bon Temps that Jason hadn’t slept with, I guess that worry is over.
Tommy impersonates Sam to meet with Marcus and gets his butt whooped for his brother. I suppose this is his way of atoning for sleeping with Luna when he impersonated Sam. He looks pretty bad, they kept kicking him when he was down. If Alcide hadn’t intervened, I’m sure they would have killed him.
The Tolerance Festival begins and I have to admit even I was sort of glad when the witch attack began, this episode was getting kind of boring. Sookie shows up screaming Bill’s name to warn him but she’s probably to late since Antonia has Eric on her side now. Can Bill survive this latest attack?

Russell is losing what grip he had on reality as he perches on top of a roof holding Talbot’s remains in a jar – lovely, nothing like a vampire soup. He hears Nan tell Eric that they want Russell dead and it is his job to do it. If he does not succeed in killing Russell, it is likely that things will not go so well for Eric in the future.

Sam loses it and almost beats him to death before he is stopped. Lafayette has to help get Calvin out of there and to the hospital. Jason expects Crystal to stay with him after the way her father has treated her but instead she leaves to go to the hospital with Calvin – leaving Jason behind to wonder what on earth is going on – where are her priorities?
Tara is seeing all of this commotion with Calvin from the parking lot just as Franklin grabs her to finish off the one thing he loved – Tara. Since she tried to kill him, he will never forgive her betrayal. The interesting thing is when she turns to him screaming that he should just go ahead and kill her, he hesitates. And that is long enough for Jason to come to her rescue and skewer Franklin. Tara is finally free.
True Blood wraps up this week with Russell losing his last grip on sanity as he shows up on the national news to inform the world that vampires will always be superior to humans – humans are nothing but food to them – and he proceeds to rip out the heart of the news anchor for all the world to see.
When the last True Blood episode ended, Sookie was just waking up from a coma and she started screaming when she saw her vampire fiancée standing there.

Sookie’s at home resting and being protected by her wolf bodyguard, Alcide. Jason and Andy show up ready to fight – they want Sookie to have Bill arrested for the draining event but she refuses and Jason leaves, incensed enough to think he will kill vampire Bill himself. Alcide receives news that his ex, Debbie, has burned down his sister’s salon and he rushes off to Jackson. This leaves Sookie all alone…
Lafayette returns home to find his mother Ruby waiting, spouting her doom and gloom about his future. She wails about vampires coming to take him and how he is going to die. Thankfully Jesus gets there before she goes too crazy and he takes her back home. It is the first time they have seen each other since Jesus found out he was a drug dealer and Lafayette is very happy to see him. He promises he is never dealing V again and that earns him a kiss.

Unfortunately, Jesus finds out that Lafayette is a V dealer and it’s a definite deal breaker for Jesus who does not want to live that kind of life.
Eric assumed when Russell took him out that they were going to take care of the Magister but Russell has other ideas. He drove to the Vampire Queen’s house with Eric and forced his way into it. Eric, seeing the superior power of Russell, no longer follows the Queen’s orders and lets it happen. Russell proposes marriage to her and offers to pay her debts. Who could pass up such a sweet deal? She agrees, but just to be sure she does not go back on her word, they hold her captive in her own home.

Sam is trying to get to the bottom of what is going on between Tommy and Joe Lee. He thinks Tommy is about to tell him the truth when Melinda knocks on the door. She is angry at Tommy that he has not done what his father told him to do. Later, Tommy does not show up to work and Sam finds out that he left with his mom earlier. This immediately worries Sam because he also finds out that there has been some dog fighting going on in the area. He immediately jumps in his truck to find out if Tommy is involved.
As Franklin is sleeping, Tara takes the chance to grab a big weapon and smash his head flat, and I mean flat – can a vampire survive that? Tara frees Sookie, who irritatingly risks everything once again to find Bill. She finds him close to death and as she tries to help him, Lorena attacks her and takes a big chunk out of her neck and this episode of True Blood ends with all of us wondering – how will Sookie survive this latest trauma?

Alcide is none too pleased with his performance as a bodyguard and Sookie reminds him that all the werewolves were high on V. Alcide’s ex-girlfriend, Debbie Pelt, is now engaged to Coot and he is worried about her new lifestyle and the way she has changed. As Alcide is having a heart to heart with Sookie about his love life, she gets the call she’s been waiting for so desperately – it’s Bill – but he’s not calling to tell her he’s okay, he’s calling to break up with her. Sookie is devastated and Alcide tries to console her, but you can see that she is just crushed.
Tara calls Sookie, trying to locate her. As upset as Sookie is, she can’t talk and Tara finds out nothing. This enrages Franklin, the latest vampire to join the show, and he takes a big bite out of Tara, tying her to the toilet for more fun and games later on.
Bill hangs up from his dreaded breakup call only to find his vampire maker Lorena smirking behind him and he reminds her once again that no matter what happens, he will never love her. She tries to sooth him but that just gets her a smack in the face hard enough to throw her out into the hall.
Eric is back at Fangtasia watching Yvette dance for him but he begins to fantasize about Sookie. He sees himself floating outside Sookie’s bedroom window as she comes to him – inviting him in – but his fantasy is disturbed when Yvette asks if she is boring him.
In the last week’s True Blood episode, Sam found Tommy in pit bull form trashing his office and this week has Sam running outside with a gun to find him. Instead, he finds his mother in the parking lot where they have set up camp. She tries to defend her youngest son by saying he does this sort of thing when they are down and out.
Sookie is still reeling from the phone call with Bill but she is determined to find her vampire because she knows he did not mean it. Alcide thinks she is crazy but there is no stopping the determined Sookie. She plans to return to the werewolf bar for more information but since they know her now, Alcide has his sister come over and put Sookie into a biker chick disguise. Alcide is a reluctant to go until Sookie tells him that not only is Debbie engaged to Coot, but she is also going to become part of their pack and this spurs Alcide to return to the bar.
Bud is retiring and the town is giving him a party at Merlottes which leaves Andy as sheriff. Arlene is swamped with work and needs more help so Sam brings in vampire Jessica as a hostess to help her. This actually has the opposite effect that Sam was expecting – Arlene proceeds to get mad at the new competition.
Lafayette has gone to Calvin Norris to sell the V that Eric needs to get rid of but Calvin refuses to buy it. Instead they turn on Lafayette and just when things look like the end for him, Eric swoops in and saves him. Sadly, they did not get rid of all of it and when the Magister shows up at Fangtasia while Eric was gone, he finds the remaining V. Pam calls Eric to let him know they’ve got a major problem but by the time he gets there, the Magister is busy torturing Pam.
Sam knows how hard his family has it so when he finally finds Tommy sleeping in the woods he offers him a job and a place to sleep. This includes letting his parents live in his rental property. But, he insists that they must all straighten up and fly right.
Sookie is now ready with her disguise and she and Alcide go Lou Pine’s to mingle and get information. It seems to be going well with Sookie doing shots at the bar until Debbie sidles up to the bar to threaten Sookie. This of course brings Coot over and Alcide jumps in to defend Sookie once again. Just as Coot and Alcide are about to duke it out, Russell shows up on stage with an open vein and shot glasses for all the werewolves. I guess we know who the vampire supplying the V is now. Sookie has to run out before the werewolves realize she cannot shift.
Bill and Lorena are outside the bar waiting for Russell to return. Bill has glamoured a girl into complete willingness and when Russell gets into the limo and sees the tasty morsel, all three vampires bite into her together as she screams in agony. Quite a nasty way to end True Blood, 9 Crimes.
Since coming to Crossroads, Oklahoma, former outcast Aden Stone has been living the good life. Never mind that one of his best friends is a werewolf, his girlfriend is a vampire princess who hungers for his blood, and he’s supposed to be crowned Vampire King—while still a human! Well, kind of.
With four – oops, three now – human souls living inside his head, Aden has always been “different” himself. These souls can time-travel, raise the dead, possess another’s mind and, his least favorite these days, tell the future.
The forecast for Aden? A knife through the heart.
Because a war is brewing between the creatures of the dark, and Aden is somehow at the center of it all. But he isn’t about to lie down and accept his destiny without a fight. Not when his new friends have his back, not when Victoria has risked her own future to be with him, and not when he has a reason to live for the first time in his life . . .
