True Blood, Season 5, Ep 10: Gone, Gone, Gone
Disturbing times in the vampire world as the supplies of Tru-Blood begin to run out. Steve Newlin does his vampire spokesman thing, prompting Sookie to turn the TV off. There’s a knock at her door and she answers it with gun in hand. A fairy girl in a vampire world can’t be too careful these days. It’s Mike, the coroner, and he’s a newly turned vamp. He starts munching down on her but she stakes him with some chopsticks. Yet another good reason to eat take-out chinese food – as if we needed one.
The area five sheriff, Elijah, is reading the riot act to Pam and Tara about a new mandate to create baby vampires. If they don’t meet it, that’s it for Tara – Pam loses her progeny to the new sheriff. Pam informs Tara that she’ll let the bar go before she is forced to make new progeny.
Nora and Bill force Eric to accept Lilith’s blood and they start the latest hallucinogenic ride. Bill watches the two of them and even though Eric and Nora see Godric, Bill sees nothing in the room with them. Suddenly Lilith appears in all her naked beauty and she rips Godrics head off. Bill looks concerned as he watches the video feed – perhaps he is finally convinced that it is all just a drug-induced high?
Jessica comes into Merlotte’s to meet Hoyt who also arranged to meet Jason there as well. He tells them he is going to Alaska and he wants her to glamour him into forgetting both of them – Hoyt will have no memories of Jessica or Jason. It’s a very sad moment, he looks so very unhappy. That convinces her to do it and after he counts to ten, Hoyt has forgotten them both. Jason looks devastated.
Jason ends up at Sookie’s house where she laments her inability to figure out what her grandmother was trying to tell her about something under the bed. He looks under there and sees a false floor, saying “who’s the smart one now?” Opening a floorboard, they find a box with some type of manuscript in it. It’s written in characters that neither of them can understand. Taking it to a local university, the expert tells them the vellum is over 200 years old but it’s just random glyphs on a page – it’s not in any human language and Sookie and Jason exchange a significant look. Guess we know where they are headed next…
Sam and Luna are pulling out all the stops to try and get Emma back from Steve Newlin. Steve is on TV in a debate with a pro-human congressman who questions how the vampire is looking so rosy with Tru-Blood in such short supply. With his typical wily ways, Steve turns the question back onto the interrogator, calling him a conspiracy theorist. Meanwhile, Sam and Luna appear in Steve’s dressing room but Emma is not there.
Jessica wanders around Bill’s house, remembering her first moments with Hoyt. Suddenly, the house is broken into by a bunch of vampire security goons who tell her to come with them, she is being called by her maker. Bill shows Jessica around the vampire lair where he tells her about their new religion. She’s not impressed – she’s the product of a forced religious upbringing and that will ruin anyone’s appetite for a zealot’s appeal.
Eric is brought to the vampire cadre where he professes his belief in Lilith. He convinces them with his display of humility before Russell, even kissing his ring. It’s revolting to see Eric in this role.
Elijah shows up at Fangtasia, where Tara is in a panic thinking she killed Ginger when trying to turn her into a vampire. Elijah is disgusted as Tara rattles on – she says “I don’t know nothin’ about birthing no baby vampires”. But apparently, it was all a ploy because when Elijah approaches Ginger, she stabs him and Tara slices off his head. Pam speeds into the room, not believing what she is seeing. There is probably going to be some nasty fallout over this.
Steve returns to the vampire lair where Emma comes out looking for her mommy. He yells at her for leaving her dog form and chases her out of the room. In the background, you see two white mice run out of his briefcase – looks like Luna and Sam have found Emma.
Russell and Salome have a confrontation over harnessing fae blood and walking in the sun and that’s when the real Russell appears – throwing Salome against the wall and denouncing their religion, saying he will not be restrained by their god. He says that he will have the sun. Sookie better watch out.
Claude is trying to read Sookie’s mysterious document but it’s older than him. They get a very pregnant fairy (remember Andy’s dalliance in the field?) who’s older and she says it’s a contract between a Stackhouse from 1702 and Warlow, giving Warlow his first female descendent. And yes, you guessed it – that’s Sookie! I guess her pledge to be done with all vampires is going to be hard to keep now, isn’t it?
