'True Blood' recap: Let's Boot & Rally
Alcide and Sookie's lovefest is interrupted by A) her barfing and B) the Boys showing up, since Alcide and Sookie are actually the main point of the Russell storyline. They spend the whole episode -- this was cool in effect but I can't figure out how to say how cool it was -- sorta remote-controlling this one contractor employee of Alcide's who was glamoured into letting Russell free. Probably this was Salome, although the show cutely thinks it's Nora -- whose terrorist hardcoreness continues to make her one of the coolest people this show has ever come up with -- but either case, the episode ends up unexpectedly with Sookie and her three boyfriends, plus Doug, uncovering the still-very-ratsucking Russell... Who abruptly turns the tables on all of them in a way that is not entirely clear.
...I just want to talk about Tara! Okay, so what else happened. Jason and Andy investigate the shifter thing and talk their Cassandra way out of even caring about faeries, as per, and Sam and Luna get shot, I already said that. I guess that's what was going on there. Everybody says that stuff is just whatever, but it really is a huge part of the show and the episode was divided up in a pretty equitable way, really, so now ... No wait.
