In “True Blood,” Season 3, Episode 3: “It Hurts Me Too,” we get introduced to more werewolves, find out a little about hidden agendas, deal with loss, experience family problems, and learn that the path to true love never did run smooth.
Spoilers surely follow.
Bill’s attempt to incinerate his old vampire-maker and lover Lorena ends with a slightly irritated vampire ex-girlfriend, and the King of the Mississippi vampires put out that one of his art objects has been slightly damaged. Later, Bill has nightmares about an incident in 1868, when he tried to reconnect with his human wife. Things did not turn out well. Bill reluctantly concludes that any close association with humans tend to develop to the detriment of said humans, and, therefore, he resolves to break things off with Sookie. He also has violent sex with Lorena, much to her delight and his shame and rage.
Tara finally buries Eggs (his real name is Benedict, of course) and moves back into Sookie’s house. Tara also is made love to by Franklin, a vampire with a great deal of curiosity about Sookie. Franklin later pays a visit to Jessica, revealing himself to be the one who disappeared the body, and wanting more intelligence about Bill and Sookie.
Jason is somewhat distracted in his new found desire to be a police officer. First of all, while he finds the running and jumping on fugitives exciting, he finds the book-learning and the drudgery of police procedure boring beyond tears. The recurring nightmares about people with bullet holes in their foreheads do not help. What might help is Bud’s sudden resignation as the chief law enforcement officer of Bon Temps, which likely leaves Andy, Jason’s friend, in charge.
Lafayette received a gift of a sports car from Eric, and an offer to take things to the next level in the V Juice operation. Beware of vampires bearing gifts.
Sam’s shape shifter family shows up at the bar and grill, and things do not go smoothly.
Sookie has a new friend, a werewolf named Alcide Herveaux, a handsome devil with a slight accent, assigned by Eric to protect her. Sookie and Alice go to Jackson, Mississippi, and a werewolf bar (which looks an awful lot like a biker bar) and encounter one of the werewolves who abducted Bill. Having psychic powers can be a real asset in finding things out; perhaps Sookie should join the police instead of her brother. Also, having a werewolf friend or two is also an asset to avoid becoming a snack when said werewolf gets angry.
