Sookie, Jason and Bill return to Bon Temps only to find the town looking like a disaster area. Everyone is under Maryann's spell and looking for Sam Merlotte who has been shape shifting to avoid capture. At Bill's house, they find that Hoyt Fortenberry's mother Maxine is in residence, also under the spell and driving Jessica to the breaking point. At Sookie's house they find Maryann in firm control. Bill has a nasty experience with her but Sookie seems to have a strange power that hasn't been seen before. At Lafayette's house, they find Tara who is in a deep trance. No one, even Bill, has seen anything quite like this but he knows someone who may be able to explain everything. Written by garykmcd

At last some real action
24 August 2009 | by kirmanolisopsarasSee all my reviews

The episode was one of the best we have ever seen in this series without any doubt. I think it was about time we saw some action and storyline progress instead of Bill and Sookie kissing while Eric is being jealous around them and Marian having orgies without telling us why.

In the last few episodes i think True Blood is really winning back the fans who were tired of the Marian story since it was progressing very slow without revealing any interesting info on her background or real purpose.

The series is getting better and better from all aspects. Although i m afraid that True Blood fans like me who emphasize a lot in the storyline expect a LOT from the upcoming queen's appearance and Marians background. Don't let us down Allan :) .

Cant wait for the next episode and even more next season.
