True Blood Season 6, Episode 1

| |

It was a fun, dark and action filled season premiere on True Blood as the fans have come to expect. Picking up where the last episode left off, vampire Bill didn’t meet his true death after all. Instead, he’s now evolved into a super vamp of sorts – the mother effing king of all bloodsuckers you might say. To borrow Jason’s awesome description, Bill is now a naked evil Superman. And everyone’s scared.

Due to the shortage of True Blood, the shifty Governor of Louisiana is closing down vamp run businesses and is prompting citizens to buy guns. Oh so political.

Jason, when glamoured by Nora, reveals that a vampire named Marlowe killed him and Sookie’s parents, and after a dispute with Sookie he flees the motley group of survivors leaving himself stranded, thumbing a ride back to Bon Temps. He gets more than what he bargained for when the offered ride comes from a mysterious old stranger.

Andy is a new, albeit shocked, father. But let’s be real who wouldn’t be traumatized if they were left with quadruplet human-faerie hybrid newborns with no mother to help out. The funny thing is, these babies grow fast. Very fast. At the beginning of the episode they are merely infants, but by the end, he’s got four full-fledged preschoolers on his hands much to the shock of Arlene and Terry.

Good ol’ Sam is heartbroken when Luna dies, leaving him to watch after Emma. He does what anyone would do – he takes the girl to Merlotte’s where Lafayette can make her some fried comfort food.

After his transformation, Bill summons Jessica. Eric tries to hold her back, but the summoning almost kills her. Sookie accompanies her back to Bill where they find him seemingly normal. Jessica’s allegiance to Bill reignites when Sookie stakes him as he almost overpowers Eric.

Per the Governor’s wishes, Fangtasia is closed. Pam’s loyalty to Eric didn’t just die away because he released her. On the contrary, her bond appears to be stronger.

In a moment of tenderheartedness, Eric gives Sookie her house back. Sookie immediately bemoans her current lifestyle and rescinds Eric’s invitation.

There are lots of changes going on in this season premiere. Bill’s changed, Sookie’s feelings have changed. Even Jessica, Pam and Tara are all going through changes. Bill is vulnerable even if he’s an insanely powerful monster. With puppy dog eyes he tells Jessica she’s the only one he can trust.

We end tonight’s episode with Bill receiving a call from a bloody Lilith and Jason figuring out that his ride is being chauffeured by none other than Warlowe.

If the hype is to be believed, this season of True Blood will be stepping up its game, answering the fans. Only time will tell. One thing’s for sure – the casting of Rutger Hauer as Marlowe is a brilliant move.
