Won't change the world, doesn't try to, but is happy just being no-brainer vampy camp.

Bill and Eric were both spurned by Sookie last season, and now they’re suddenly BFFs after having killed Nan together and the Authority is after them (and eventually captures them). Lafayette killed Jesus when he was possessed by Marnie at the end of last season, but Jesus’ body is now missing. Sheriff Andy wakes up with Holly and is starting to show signs of good ol’ Louisiana corruption. And the mystery Marine who showed up is already wrecking Terry’s bliss, hinting there’s a strange connection between house fires and the rest of their unit who served together in Iraq.

The preview for the coming weeks suggests that Tara’s turning won’t work out as well as they’d hoped, meaning they thought she’d dig out of the ground, dust off and happily chug a True Blood. They’re letting little out of the bag in terms of what Russell will do, and the Terry meltdown storyline is similarly mysterious. All in all, looks like an improvement over last season’s bit of a stall with the witches (yawn). Won’t change the world, doesn’t try to, but is happy just being no-brainer vampy camp.
