Story: Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) is hot on the trail of Bill Compton’s (Stephen Moyer) abductors, thanks to the help of Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård) and his werewolf servant Alcide (Joe Manganiello). Jason (Ryan Kwanten) finds himself seeking a new career path thanks to his recent heroic actions. Arlene (Carrie Preston) learns some news that should make her quite happy, but there’s a tragic twist involved. Franklin Mott (James Frain) distracts Tara (Rutina Wesley) from her broken heart. Speaking of broken hearts, Bill breaks something of Lorena’s (Mariana Klaveno).
Breaking Hearts, Among Other Things: So, how about that final sex scene between Bill and Lorena? If that’s not the most messed up thing you’ve ever seen Bill do, I’m not sure that we’re watching the same show!
But we’re getting ahead of ourselves, aren’t we? Let’s rewind.
After eviscerating a rogue werewolf, Eric warns Sookie that the wolves have ties to Jackson, Mississippi. He sets her up with Alcide, a werewolf from the Jackson area. Alcide serves as Sookie’s guide, but the mismatched pair find themselves in an unexpectedly hairy situation at a local Jackson werewolf bar. Thanks to Alcide’s brawn and Sookie’s brains, the two are able to get themselves out of immediate danger. But the promise of the sinister Debbie Pelt (Brit Morgan), Alcide’s ex-fiance, is a surefire sign that trouble hasn’t shifted its sights away from Sookie and Alcide.
In other Bon Temps gossip, it appears that Arlene is pregnant — except she isn’t having Terry’s (Todd Lowe) baby. She’s pregnant with the long deceased Rene’s (Michael Raymond-James) child. She’s withholding that info from Terry for now, but there’s no way that can stay a secret for long.
But truthfully, it’s hard to discuss anything other than Bill Compton tonight, isn’t it? Thanks to a tragic flashback, we witnessed Bill’s final moments with his wife — moments that were witnessed by Lorena, as well. It’s no wonder that Bill hates Lorena so much, but even with all the terrible things she’s done, it’s hard to justify his… er… actions towards her in the bedroom. Truly, the final scene of “It Hurts Me Too” was one of the most painful scenes I’ve ever seen on “True Blood.” It makes one wonder whether or not Bill can ever come back from such a terrible moment.
