True Blood – Episode 4.07: Cold Grey Light of Dawn
This episode was a great reminder of how Tara (Rutina Wesley) has been in the midst of pretty much every crazy thing that has happened in this show so far. The girl is a trouble magnet! It really shouldn’t have been a surprise when she so willingly went with Marnie/Antonia (Fiona Shaw) the minute she started talking about vampire vengeance. Yet for a moment, I thought she might have actually learned something, grown and declined the offer.
Now in addition to Lafayatte (Nelsan Ellis) going up against Marnie/Antonia, he’s going to have to go up against Tara as well (if she doesn’t get in too far over her head again). And right about now the odds aren’t looking very good—Lafayatte and Jesus (Kevin Alejandro) vs. Marnie/Antonia, Tara and a half-dozen others. Maybe if Lafayatte can get Sookie (Anna Paquin) into the fight, they can even the odds.
Can someone please explain to me who the spirit is that showed up outside Arlene’s (Carrie Preston) burned down house, then again in the kitchen at Merlotte’s? She seems awfully interested in the SoS (son of satan). Speaking of Arlene, I keep trying to like her and give her a chance in hopes that she might have changed. But she constantly reminds us that she is really just nasty. I mean why did she need to talk down Andy Bellefleur (Chris Bauer) and his entire family, with the exception of Terry (Todd Lowe)? There was just no need for that.
Yeah, Sam (Sam Trammell) and Luna (Janina Gavankar) that revelation was just plain awkward. I don’t know where you all go from there.
There were a couple of funny moments in this episode for me. One was when Maxine Fortenberry (Dale Raoul) was watering her lawn and her vampire neighbour walked into the sun and burst into flames. In true character, instead of turning the hose on the burning vamp, Maxine says, “I knew it!”
