Taylor Momsen’s ‘True Blood’ Recap: ‘Almost Home’ [EXCLUSIVE]
Taylor Momsen, frontwoman of the Pretty Reckless, is watching ‘True Blood’ every week and writing recaps of each episode exclusively for PopCrush. Below is the ‘Heaven Knows’ singer’s reaction to the latest episode of the final season of ‘True Blood.’ Stay tuned to PopCrush for more ‘True Blood’ guest columns from Taylor!
As ‘True Blood’ begins to wind down, more and more loose ends are being tied up in the show. This week’s episode begins with Sarah accepting her fate. Eric drinks Sarah’s blood and is miraculously cured of the Hep-V infection. Gus breaks the news to Pam and Eric that it’s going to take longer than expected to get Nu Blood on the market. Obviously, Pam’s initial reaction of WTF is expected, and Gus explains that he would rather make Nu Blood work just enough so people will need to keep buying it — therefore increasing his opportunity to make a profit.
As Hoyt begins to pack up his mama’s house, he and his girlfriend get into a tiff regarding the future of their relationship and if it will involve children. However, this fight is quickly ended as Jason receives multiple texts from crazy Violet with pictures of Adilyn and Jessica clearly tied up in some exotic torture scenario. When Jason arrives at Violet’s house, he is quickly captured and tied up with the rest of them. As Violet begins to explain how she plans to torture each of them to death, Hoyt shoots her from behind and saves the day.
We also finally reach a resolution with Tara and Lettie Mae. As Lafayette, Lettie Mae and the Reverend begin their V-Trip, Tara leads them into their old home and we flash back to when Tara was a young girl. In the flashback, Tara’s father comes home clearly inebriated and furious that he didn’t know about Tara’s birthday party. He begins to abuse Lettie Mae, and young Tara pulls a gun out of a drawer and almost shoots her father. Instead, she buries the gun in her front lawn and watches as her father abandons them. Outside of the flashback, Lettie Mae and Tara finally reach a level of clarity in their relationship, allowing everyone to now officially move on in life.
Sookie finds out that Sarah is the reason behind Eric’s recovery, and immediately brings Bill to Fangtasia with the hopes that she can finally save him. However, Bill refuses to drink Sarah’s blood. Hopefully, the next two episodes will explain Bills thought process this episode!
Until next week…
