Taylor Momsen’s ‘True Blood’ Recap: ‘Fire in the Hole’ [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!
This episode begins in a yoga class, where we find Sarah Newlin — aka psycho religious freak, who has conveniently found a new mantra to live by (she definitely should’ve died last season). I’ll be curious to see if she lives past the next episode.
Pam, on the other hand, is dealing with Eric, who seems to be one small step away from giving up on life completely. There’s a flashback to the time when Pam and Eric were living in France, and Eric was in love with a human named Sylvie. The authority shows up on him mid-romp because Pam and Eric didn’t register as vampires. The authority also informs them that the company is introducing “True Blood,” which will allow vampires to live among humans without having to feed on them.
Then Alcide wakes up to find Sookie MIA, causing him to lose his shit, and he shows up at Bill’s in wolf mode. Sookie and Bill, however, are long gone because Sookie knows the only way to truly catch the infected vamps is with her fairy blood. Sookie also learns that Bill can no longer trace her, but the memories from when he was “Bilith,” aka psychotic, are still there.
Then Sam ends up running to the townspeople who have all gone apes— since realizing he can transform into other things. Mayor Gibson has riled up everyone, and just as they are about to kill Sam he transforms into an owl and disappears.
Holly is picked to go hunting with the infected vamps so they can feed on her if they need to. Sookie opens up to Bill about her and Alcide’s relationship. She’s worried that she might not actually love him the way he loves her. She realizes that she might not be able to keep up the relationship. She is clearly still in love with Bill.
Then Sheriff Andy/Jason/Jessica and what’s her face run into the angry townspeople. Hoyt’s mama is very angry at Jessica — Hoyt’s mom shoots Jessica, but Jason’s beau quickly solves that issue and kills Hoyt’s mom by ripping her heart out.
The Japanese company catches up to Pam, Eric and Sylvie — Eric must chose who will survive: Pam or Sylvie … Sylvie dies.
Pam is absolutely devastated that Eric is dying. She clearly can’t live without him. Pam tells Eric that Sarah Newlin is alive, and he becomes VERY angry. Shit is about to hit the f—ing fan. Sarah Newlin is a namaste whore who hopefully is about to die, but unfortunately her guru does first. Then Alcide is shot and killed in the midst of an infected vamp attack where poor Sookie realizes that turning him into a vamp cannot be an option, and she realizes she really did love him.
