True Blood Round Table: "Soul of Fire"

by at . Comments

Sookie was saved. Andy was f-cked. And Marnie was killed. Sort of.

It was an eventful penultimate episode of True Blood this Sunday, one editor-in-chief Matt Richenthal picks apart below, as he's joined by staff members Eric Hochberger, Carissa Pavlica and Jim Garner in the latest edition of the TV Fanatic Round Table.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

What was your favorite scene?
Matt: No scenes stand out. Can I go with favorite quotes? Jessica bitching about PMS, Pam wanting to hurry up and obliterate the store because she had a mani-pedi and Andy evaluating his sexual prowess were all winners.

Eric: Alicide and Sam taking down Marcus. With the disappointing witch battle, at least I was able to relieve some much-needed stress watching Alcide strangle that punk to death. Then kicking crazy Debbie to the curb? Finally a resolution I can feel good about.

Jim: Eric tearing out "Uncle Tom's" heart and drinking it like a juice box in front of Marnie.

Carissa: Jason laying into Bill and Eric for almost allowing Sookie to be killed in Marine's place. It was about time someone reminded them of why they are alive.

Harder to believe: Marnie allowing Jesus and Lafayette to be alone with that body, Sookie taking part in a spell or a fairy wanting to have sex with Andy?
Matt: The fandy sex would be the obvious answer, so I'll question Sookie. Can't she read minds? Why wouldn't she have got into Marnie's head before joining hands with the other witches? Really, Eric and Bill, this is the woman you'd kill yourselves over?!?

Eric: Gonna agree with Carissa here. Two women chasing after Andy this season?!? This is just getting ridiculous.

Jim: I'm no doctor, but even I could tell that the stuff Jesus gathered up wouldn't sanitize anything. She can cast a wall of concentrated sunlight, but can't tell the difference between spell components and cleaner?

Carissa: The faerie wanting to have sex with Andy. Where in the HELL did that come from? Yet another moment when Sookie is in peril... and they completely ignore her to have sex with Andy? ANDY?!?

Should Eric forgive Pam?
Matt: Forgive Pam? Eric should date Pam! Unless the TV Fanatic version of Eric is correct below, and these two feel more like family members to one another, can you imagine a more entertaining couple than Peric? Okay, we gotta work on the nickname. But still.

Eric: Duh! Parents always forgive their children. Which is what I assume the maker/makee relationship is. Plus, I assume he'll break down during one of her witty moments. Come on, when she rescued the necklace? Even stone cold Eric had to crack a smile there and welcome her back with open arms.

Jim:Yes! Pam and Jessica were the only sane one's there. Seriously, two older-vampires are not worth any human, even the sparkly, part-faerie Sookie.

Carissa: Yes. Pam is Pam. At the very least, you always know where she is coming from, and liking Sookie has never been on her menu.

What are your hopes for the season finale?
Matt: I've been saying it all season, so one more time: a main character must die. Tommy doesn't count. Marcus definitely doesn't count. Either Tara, Lafayette, Sam or Alcide really has to perish. Sadly, I bet Jesus bites it and Alan Ball acts like he killed off a vital character.

Eric: Since Lafayette just ate Marnie, we'll actually get the Vampire/Witch showdown I paid for. However, because Alan Bell would never let anyone actually kill Lafayette, I assume it's just going to be an anti-climatic conversation between Jesus and Lafayette/Marnie that ends this season.

Jim: That Jessica and Jason finally give in to the feelings they have and deal with the fallout. Sorry, Hoyt.

Carissa: I'm hoping for a little Eric/Sookie reunion, for the witches to make a giant pinata around which most will perish and for Marnie to get the heck off my show. Witches are like middle-aged pieces of white trash, ridden hard and put up wet white trash. I'm sick of them. Seeing Alcide and Eric naked for no apparent reason wouldn't be upsetting, either. Just sayin.

So agree with Matt...Eric and Pam should date. There is nothing parental between them. Never was, never will. I think you can tell clearly the difference between Bill and Jessica's realtionship and Pam's and Eric's. So Eric screw Sookie! She made you into something I don't like anymore! And it's not even her fault. Nan was all right! You two are crying puppies! So leave that part to Bill. With him we aren't expecting anything else!

Eric needs to do something else with the hair.
Bill needs to become even more of an asshole and cure his sookie fetish.
Pam needs to seriously make an attempt to kill sookie and start a vampire vs fairy war. ( Because sending one fairy over to conquer the world don't make sense. Hundreds of refugee fairies should be lurking in the woods.) The werecats could be helping them out breeding new ghost-daddys or something...
Jesus should become a full-on demon who goes on to kill everything indiscriminately. People for him to kill - Alcide, Jessica, Terry and Marlene, LAFAYETTE, Debbie, Luna...(and the kid too, just to end that storyline completely...), Tara,all other werewolves in Bon Temps...
And Bill's girl from the beginning of the season reappears. I can't remember who she was but i like her more than sookie...
And no more conversations. Enough talk. We had a season of talk and confessions of love. We could have a finale like that episode of Buffy that had no sound.

Well, maybe Sook is not able to understand Marnie/Antonia's thoughts - remember when she was trying to read them sometimes earlier this season? She was thinking in some foreign language, maybe Latin! Anyway, what happened to Sookie's FAIRY GODMOTHER? One of the fairies could've rescued her out of the fire, would've been interesting! SO sad about what things they change of the books! As for Alcide killing Marcus: Hope we're going to have a packmaster contest next season - and hope they'll introduce us to Quinn!! ;)

What's everyone's beef with Alcide? And why all of a sudden is everyone jumping on poor old Sook? Granted she could have read Marnie's mind. What was with the machine gun btw? That was the coolest way to kill (sort of) her? From my experience with the past seasons (FAN SINCE SEASON 1, HEYYYY) this is probably whats gonna happen: Hoyt is gonna find out about Jas & Jess (fight end of friendship)
Tara's gonna do something angry and screw something up
LALA is gonna get unposessed by Jesus who's probably gonna die :(
Sookie is gonna choose Bill, Then Eric, Then Bill and so on and so forth.
Andy gonna realize he really did screw a fairy and I bet she's gonna be pregnant with another Fairy/Human hybrid.... (And didn't she look a lot like the evil fairy queen thing from Ep.1?) hmmmm
Luna or whatever her name is gonna probably hate Sam for killing her babydaddy (even tho it was Alcide and he had it coming) I could just see the problem arising now. It wouldn't be her first time blaming Sam......
Debbie is gonna do something really stupid (she's probably preggers and Alcide ain't that baby's daddy)
AND.... Somebody is gonna be on the verge of death right up into the last moment (fade to black, cue the credits see you next season) LOL!!!! I wonder how close I am to accurate: Gotta love this show already anxious for season 5!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Alcide is boring don't want him anywhere near sookie he is better as her friend it was that way in the book it should stay that way on screen i mean sam didn't get a chance why should he, and anyway Allan Ball compared Alcide's personality to Asshole Bill Compton) i don't want to see another (abusive controlling relationship on screen)sookie needs to be by herself for a season to think, her and alcide have no chemistry there good friends and it should stay that way or kill him off "he hate's vampires anyway".

I hope they fixed the show in the last episode, because this one sucked! Not the way I'd kill Marnie, but ok. And Sookie, if you really love vampires what with the disappointed face for them? Give it a break! I'd kill Sam AND Tara, just saying. Maybe even Holly too.
And no more love triangle, come on! Sookie yelled more this season - meaningless words, and not the sex kind - than ever before. So they would kill themselves for save this fairy, but no one wanted to know more about fairies or let Sookie choose?! OK - FEEL THE EXPRESSION ON MY FACE PLEASE! I'm guessing Deb will come and do some stupid shit, Hoyt will freak when he catch Jess and Jason making out (cheers!), someone will get very injured and this sucking love triangle will continue. People, this is NOT pleasing the fans.

I bet they will kill some characters I don't care and pretend it's a big shock one. Do you guys realize Tommy is the biggest character they ever killed in psst 47 eps? What a shocker.

Seriously, they should give Alcide some serious character growth. Not another love interest. Yes, he's hot, but that doesn't mean he has the best personality. Go a bit deeper into his path, to see where he comes from. Maybe then I can truly root for him.

They should seriously kill of some characters, the plotlines are so annoying, and please one of the bigger characters too, and I don´t give a shit for Alcide, he cannot act and all the muslces I don´t care...

I want Sookie to forget about old, whiny, wimpy Bill and get a brain cell and keep Eric...if for some twisted reason they dont let her do that then Alcide would be a good second choice. Glad Alcide finally abjured Debbie she still looked like a 2 dollar hooker even when "off" the V.

Marnie just puked that bitch out.

Lafayette

I'm so sick of silverin' myself all day every day, being pissed off all the time. This is what PMS used to feel like.
