True Blood Season Seven Episode Seven: May Be The Last Time


Dr. Ludwig: “Congratulations Mr. Compton, they said it could not be done, but you have thoroughly grossed me out.”

“May Be The Last Time” is the August 3 episode of “True Blood.” If you haven’t seen the episode, beware of spoilers! “True Blood” airs Sunday nights at 8 p.m. central on HBO.

Alright, this episode isn't as boring as last week’s, but it’s not the most entertaining thing in the world ever. The Bill flashbacks actually aren't as bad this time around. It’s kind of cute watching Bill and Caroline meet and fall in love. They are pretty adorable. What’s unclear is why Niall needed to harvest the earth’s memory and watch Caroline give birth. It’s a random family lesson, and it’s a short not all that great flashback. Bill and Caroline’s wedding or something would have been better, but then it wouldn't fit into Niall’s miracle lesson. Did you enjoy the Bill flashbacks?

The writers take their time with getting to the scary part of Violet kidnapping Adilyn and Wade. Instead of jumping right to that, Violet leaves Wade and Adilyn alone to awkwardly stare at her sex toys and things. Then, there’s also time spent on watching Andy and Holly looking for Adilyn and Wade. The writers should have trimmed this storyline down. The scene where Andy starts to cry is good, and some of the Adilyn and Wade cuteness could have stayed. This storyline should not have taken up as much of the episode as it did. Were you a little bored?

Sookie’s search for a cure for Bill isn't all bad. It brings back Dr. Ludwig! The writers have done a good job with the character reunions in this finale season. It’s probably one of the few things they have done right. Anyways, it would have been nice to hear more about why Bill’s Hep V is spreading so quickly. It doesn't sound like it is because of Sookie’s fairy lineage, but then again, Dr. Ludwig asks the question and then bolts. A short, “yep that’s why,” or something would have been helpful. An answer would be nice. Why do you think Bill is progressing this quickly?

Speaking of reunions, Hoyt is in town! He brought his girlfriend Bridget along too. The fact that Jason is distracted by Bridget is annoying. It paints Jason in a not so great light, especially considering he has a lot of women drama going on. Shouldn't Jason’s mind still be on whether or not he wants to make it work with Violet or go back to Jessica? Playing up Jason’s feelings on Hoyt being back but not knowing who Jason is would have been the better route to go. It would have tugged on the heartstrings a bit.

Sarah/Noomi is not doing so well. It’s unclear why she is being haunted by her Guru, Jason, and Steve Newlin. Her hallucinations say it is because she is going to die soon, but it would be cool if maybe the antidote or guilt or something else was the reason. This is definitely an interesting complication, and it could have really interesting affects for Sarah. Already, she is choosing to no longer cling from religion to religion or from man to man. Sarah learns that she is enough. She doesn't need to dedicate her life to some new cause. All she needs to do is fight for herself.
