It’s time to celebrate because the moment has come for True Blood to wrap up its second season. In Bon Temps, however, the Maryann has a particularly twisted brand of merriment. She’s throwing a party alright but it’s not the kind I want to be a part of.
Nothing’s changed in Bon Temps since Maryann, the devil-worshipping maenad, still has the town’s residents in the palm of her hand. In fact, things have turned from bad to worse with Tara and Lafayette now under Maryann’s spell while a giant egg sits on a large bed nest in Sookie’s grandma’s old room.
I’m sure you’re all with me when I say that the mystery behind the giant egg is the first thing I want uncover. It’s the weirdest thing ever but considering all the crazy stuff that’s been happening all season long, I shouldn’t be surprised anymore.
Now as Bon Temps reaches a fever pitch, Maryann prepares for her ultimate bestial sacrifice. We all know from last episode, courtesy of Queen Sophie-Anne, that the only way to defeat Maryann is if she thinks her god has come for her. I’m counting on Bill to think of a clever plan to trick Maryann but he better work fast because she’s conscripting Sookie to be Maid of Honor at the bloody nuptials where she’s bound to marry the sacrifice-conjured Dionysus.
It’s all too bizarre and wicked but at least the other part of town has some interesting developments as well. Sophie-Anne warns Eric to keep the lid on Bill’s inquisitiveness while Hoyt is struggling with Maxine’s endless stream of insults. Meanwhile, Jason and Andy continues working together in their heroic attempt to save the town, and Sam is forced to put his life in the hands of a most unlikely ally on what may be his final move to save Sookie and the town.
To entice you more, HBO has released a new promo video just in time for the finale “Beyond Here Lies Nothin'” featuring the song “Corrupt” by Depeche Mode. For a sneak peek on what’s to come, also check out the slideshow below.
