True Blood: Season 2 – Episode 1 “Nothing But The Blood”

I’ve been looking forward to True Blood: Season 2 for awhile now. Needless to say I was counting down the hours until it was aired last night – until the power went out. We had a big thunderstorm here and the power was out for 5 or 6 hours. I was freaking – what if it didn’t get back on in time for True Blood?!? I need my True Blood as much as Eric and Bill need it to stay alive (well that and real blood). Luckily, it came back on with about an hour to spare. Whew!

Season 2 picks up right where Season 1 left off – the mystery black person with painted red toenails dead in the back of Andy Bellafleur’s car with Sookie and Tara screaming. From reading the books, I figured it was Lafayette. However, it wasn’t. It was the fake hoodoo priestess that gave Tara and her mom a fake exorcism in Season 1.

HBO has been straying from the book series since Season 1 and I really don’t mind at all. I think they make it more interesting. It also of course adds to more character storylines besides just Sookie and Bill.

Bill now has to take care of Jessica – the new vampire he made because of the one he killed last season to protect Sookie. Jessica is 17 and a brand new vampire – so think teenager gone bad. She seems annoyed by having to stay with Bill compared to with Eric and at Fangtasia – I would be too. Give me Eric any day over Bill!

This of course makes Sookie mad because Bill never told her about Jessica – or about him killing her uncle who molested her. Opps! She of course forgives him about both instances and they have sex and he bites her. Ah, just like old times!



Eric was in the episode for the last minute or two. Disappointing for me because I am a huge Eric fan. But at least he was in the episode. He and his vampires were actually the ones holding Lafayette and other humans hostage who have done “crimes against vampires.”



Sam remembers MaryAnn from when he was a teenager and just found out about his shapeshifting abilities. He stole from MaryAnn and had sex with her and left. Now, she wants something from him – but not money.

Tara is still staying with MaryAnn Forester (who is a maenad in the book series). However, why is she taking such concern with Tara? And who is that black guy she is getting involved with now who is also at MaryAnn’s mansion? I’m suspicious.

Jason was visited with someone from The Fellowship of the Sun (the anti-vampire church) while he was accused of the murders last season. This season, he will be getting more involved with that church. Bad Jason! You need to be spanked – and not in a way you’d like!

Here is a new trailer I found for more of what will come on True Blood Season 2…

I have never heard of this show until right now. Maybe that is because I don't have HBO.

Maybe I will have to upgrade my package so that I get HBO--it looks like a great show!!

I am glad that the power came on just in time for you to watch!!

It is a great show, you should watch it Jillene (if you like HBO style shoes and vampires that is). :)

Bobby G - I know, great episode indeed! Though, Eric beat the shit out of a redneck guy, not a girl... :P

Shannon - the books are definitely worth reading. I've read all published and they are great. :)
