True Blood Season 5 Episode 12 And now the battle lines have been drawn, appropriate for the penultimate episode in this season (hey, they were setting us up for something, I hoped). It was one of the better episodes of the season (except for a few campy-hilarious lines): replete with action that (finally!) brought together our favorite characters who have been painfully separated throughout the season. At the Authority, Bill is more religious-crazy then ever -- and as a friend of mine pointed out, sounds more Bible-Belty, too. He forces Jessica to go and turn Jason into a vampire because, as Lilith says, the greatest gift vampires can give to humans is turning them. I'm pretty sure they'd accept some sort of pen instead.Jessica, wisely, pretends to turn Jason, and as the two are being buried by two Authority guards, Jason shoots them both to escape. Jessica chooses this time to tell him that if, in fact, she had to spend eternity with someone, it would be him. So Jason True Blood Season 5 Episode 12 responds by running off to Sookie to warn her about the impending vamp war. Jessica hides out at Fangtasia for a bit, where Pam and Tara are fretting about the death of Sheriff Elijah. They had reason to worry. Chancellor Rosalyn heads to the bar because she can tell Eljiah has been killed -- he's her progeny it turns out. Pam takes credit for killing Elijah to protect Tara and she's arrested (NO!) and taken to the Authority.Who else is there? Luna and Sam, who still as mice, are trying to find Emma. They (nakedly) find her but not before being discovered and put in jail. Though Sam volunteers to be Bill's breakfast. In case you're keeping count: Bon Temps is starting to populate the Authority building, but there has been a few defectors. Nora -- finally! -- has seen the Godric-led light and realized that, yeah, Lilith is not a good god. And she celebrates by having sex with her sort-of brother Eric. Because there can't True Blood Season 5 Episode 12 be a"True Blood"season without an Eric sex scene.So basically we have crazy Bill, Salome and their Authority minions holding court. With the U.S. government no longer on their side (after they reveal that they are now a sanguinist regime, a visiting U.S. general tells them they're about to be bombed to hell before Eric kills him), the Authority is now battlefield No. 1. Battlefield No. 2? The faerie club in the middle of the field. Sookie is hiding out there, even though it's not exactly the safest place to be when a vampire war is True Blood Season 5 Episode 12 starting (vamps love them some faerie blood). But she's looking to find out more about this Worlo fellow whom she's promised to.The faeries seem to think the Faerie Elder can help me out. And this woman is crazy wonderful and super-weird and dancy. She yells things like "KE$HA: FOR OR AGAINST?!" and BOYZ II MEN: FOR OR AGAINST?!" while being entirely not helpful with telling Sookie about this vampire who wants her. She does, however, say that it's time to fight Russell Edgington -- who's coming for them and Sookie. So she's a brave crazy person. However, when Russell glamours Jason into telling him where the faerie club is, she resists letting her faerie True Blood Season 5 Episode 12She goes out herself to protect them from Russell, but he's too strong, bites her and kills her. Then he has the power to see into the invisible faerie club -- and see a scared Sookie. The episode ends with him charging for the faeries. So. Many. Wars. And though there was so much death, surely more will come in next week's season finale. Jason is currently at the faerieland, but the preview for next episode shows him donning Army gear and storming the Authority. And I fully children out to wage war.True Blood Season 5 Episode 12 expect Pam to smart-talk her way out of jail.But which of the major characters (if any) will die? Lilith would be a good start (chick could have bathed at some point this season), but will Sam and Luna make it? Will Andy Bellefleur, who put a half-faerie baby in Maurella (!), come to save the day? Will Bill see the non-Lilith way of things, thanks to the help of Eric? Let’s start with the Oscar-worthy I’m a Believer performance given by one Eric Northman – thankfully, never one of the Lilith obsessives, and finally free to start the fight back. Unusual family mediation sessions aside, clearly Godric did something right with these two, even if it took his dying twice to get there. Now that Eric and Nora are making damn sure that the vamp/human war is inevitable – it’s the only way to get rid of the Authority – all hell is about to break loose. True Blood Season 5 Episode 12 Ordinarily that would be a tantalising prospect – humans vs vamps, with Eric on the humans’ side – but Sunset was such a packed episode, full of fantastic stuff, that it just barely scrapes into the top five. Yes, once again TB came into its own on the home stretch and it was breathtaking.In an almost complete contrast to Eric and Nora’s change of heart, Bill Compton has totally lost his ***. Believing the hype is never the best idea, but Compton has taken that belief to Elvis-sized proportions. If he starts deep frying human beings, opera can’t be far behind. Anyhoo, Compton has something that Elvis didn’t – bear with me – absolute proof that he is not in fact chosen. For anything. Except possibly death. Having stumbled upon another ‘chosen one’ Bill’s immediate execution of the competition serves only one purpose, because if you truly are chosen, there is no competition. Bill is clearly very comfortable with his ‘chosen’ status; add that to the ‘nest’ mentality True Blood Season 5 Episode 12 that Pam is so fond of, and there’s no way he’s letting anyone get in his way, and that includes Salome. Of course, Bill as always, has underestimated the power of the Northman – looks like the once-promising bromance is about to end with one hell of a fight. And we all know who’s going to win...At least we will, as long as say, the newly invincible Russell Edgington is as far away as possible. Russell’s Faery buffet dream has finally come true, thanks in large part to the half-assed Faery plan to kill him. Much like Salome, these people clearly have no idea who they’re dealing with. It was almost too easy, but it did give the amazing Denis O’Hare the chance to chew as much scenery as he could possibly handle. Always at his best when fulfilling his batshit potential – insulting Jesus and feeling up Jason – with a Faery inside him, True Blood Season 5 Episode 12 Russell can also fulfil his feeding potential. In addition to the Faery vision, the ex-King is now a daywalker – meaning Bill, Eric, Sookie and pretty much everyone else are in a world of trouble right now. As much as the prospect of a bloody showdown is as worrying as it is exciting, you wouldn’t be blamed for being just a little bit smug about the Faeries...One development that may not have made everyone’s top five, given Tara’s immense popularity, was the short but very sweet screen time shared by Pam, Tara and Jess. It was a long time coming, and while hasn’t quite yet hit the kick-ass heights that it’s capable of, the seeds of a very interesting trio have most definitely been sown. Fingers crossed Bon Temps get its very own gang True Blood Season 5 Episode 12 of female vamps – in every sense of the word - in the near future.Sunset was once again a return to the frenetic tension that characterised the beginning of the season; so much was going on that there was barely time to draw breath between what are clearly important events. From Pam being arrested for protecting her progeny, who by the way, is most likely in love with her, to Jess and Jason’s fake turning and Jess’ very real declaration, then there’s Andy’s baby mama drama, and Robert Patrick is a thieving wolf... That’s before we get to Sam, Luna and Pam being at the underground lair just in time for Bill’s big breakdown, with Eric miles away and unaware of the situation any of them are in, and the fact that the mysterious Warlow is all but guaranteed to make an appearance True Blood Season 5 Finale.
