TrueBlood Season 2 Episode 11 "Frenzy". All hell is literally breaking loose in BonTemps Louisiana. Maenad MaryAnn has the majority of the townsfolk under her spell. Orgies, mutilation, debauchery, cannibalism, and ultimately human sacrifice, all for the sake of preparing tribute to "the god who comes". In an effort to free the town of MaryAnn's influence, Vampire Bill pays a visit to the queen of the vampires SophieAnne Leclerq, portrayed by the sylph-like Evan Rachel Wood. Ms.Wood is an absolute scene stealer. When she speaks the lines written by the wonderful Alan Ball, you can tell they are as sensually enjoyable for her to say as it is for the listener to hear. Visually stunning, her skin is flawless, and she rocks her wardrobe like a '40's era hollywood goddess. And i love the way the character teases vamp Bill [all in good fun of course].
One of my favorite moments in this episode is the scene where Jason and Andy are on militia stake-out, and they have a heart-to-heart about issues they have with each other. They discover they have more in common than they thought and become closer.
Lafayette as always, is a treasure. The fans are so lucky that he lives on in the tv series long after he was dispatched in the TrueBlood books. Vamp Eric is as handsome and seductive as ever, and Vamp Pam is scandalously funny.
Sookie Stackhouse is my kind of gal. i love how resourceful she is. No matter what strangeness is thrown her way, she rolls with the punches, and when necessary, will skillfully throw a few too. Speaking of strangeness, in "Frenzy" there are so many WTF moments, i lost count. Trying to list them all would be futile. Much more expedient to view the ep. HBO will air "Frenzy" again at 6:00pm Sunday September 13, 2009 [it can also be seen on-line in it's entirety at In A Lather, please click the link on the right]. But the strange moment that still has me scratching my head is the giant bird's nest in Sookie Stackhouse's late grandma's bedroom, complete with what appears to be an ostrich egg that Tara and her beau 'Eggs' are maintaining and guarding.
Yet another reason why i can't wait for the season finale. i'm guessing that even though we may be left with a cliff-hanger, many questions will be answered too.
TrueBlood season 2 episode 12 finale "Beyond Here Lies Nothin'" airs Sunday September 13, 2009 at 9:00pm on HBO. Please check your local listings.
