Tonight's episode of True Blood shifts its focus back on Bon Temps, a town that looks like it's been hit by a hurricane. But we all know that no tropical cyclone caused the big catastrophe. It's all about wicked Maryann and her endgame is about to unfold in the episode "New World in My View."
But before anything else, let's recap: After the big explosion, Eric gets hurt and takes advantage of Sookie's good nature by convincing her to suck out the silver bullets (and his blood) from his body, much to the dismay of Bill, who reveals that Sookie will now find herself attracted to Eric sexually. Lafayette and Lettie Mae try to save their kin from Maryann's clutches but to no avail while Sam tries to set himself free and avoid Maryann by turning into a fly. On the other hand, Godric decides to take the fall for the PR mess and commits suicide by sunlight.
"New World in My View" kicks off with Sookie, Bill and Jason returning to Bon Temps only to find their small town turned upside down by Maryann. Presented with chaos and a series of challenges, Bill discovers that he doesn't know how to defeat Maryann as traditional vampire techniques don't work on her. So how do we stop a maenad like Maryann? Well, Jason thinks he can, at least that's what the short preview suggests although we all know it would take a lot more to take Maryann down. And something tells me that Evan Rachel Wood's Queen Sophie-Ann has something to do with it.
Meanwhile, Sam and Andy are lured to Merlotte's by Arlene only to find a group of bloodthirsty revelers waiting for them. Jason steps up and takes the bull by the horns to rescue Sam, at least for the moment. Elsewhere, Hoyt and Jessica try to keep a lid on Maxine's madness, and Sookie tries to get through to Tara, who is engulfed in darkness.
