If you forgot where we left off in season 6 of True Blood, you might get hit by a Hep-V Positive vampire in “Jesus Gonna Be Here” before you can recall. Flying all around the new Bellefleur’s Bar and Grill shindig are the sick vampires and the bloodbag humans they’ve come to harvest. Dead-center is good ol’ Sookie Stackhouse, somehow missing every attempt on her life, yet never missing a single slur thrown her way in people’s minds. The fast-paced vampire combat to which we’ve become accustomed features all of our favorite supernatural characters, from Alcide to Sam to Tara… WTF TARA IS DEAD?! Season 7, I hate you. Just for that, I'm sandwiching Tara gifs into this article!
tara 2 That you are, Season 7
A single whistle is heard and the H-Vamps scurry away, leaving the townsfolk of Bon Temps to tend to their wounded and dead (TARA IS DEAD). Arlene and Holly are nowhere to be found, and Sherriff Andy Bellefleur is on the case. Clearly he should go checkout the old Fangtasia (because we find that’s where they are), but that would be too easy. Sookie becomes overwhelmed with the onslaught of mental slander coming her way from her “neighbors”, including her new beau, Alcide. Spurned by his internal wish that she had left town long ago, she takes a long walk home alone in the dark.
My thoughts exactly, Tara
Cut to our favorite loyal-to-the-true-death vamp, Pam, playing a friendly game of Russian roulette while making a pitstop in Morocco on her journey to find her maker, Eric. She has a few choice words for the Muslim vampire she’s facing off (“Your god and my god can go to a motel and have a circle jerk for all I care. I’ll be in hell having a three way with the devil”) before he bites the bullet and she is rewarded with some info about Eric’s whereabouts, as well as a young girl (“the only clean blood in North Africa is a child’s blood”), whom she declines. She is given a map, which she stares at in disbelief after examining. Looks as though Eric’s burned body (remember his nude scene in the snow #neverforget) might be somewhere in France or Germany by the looks of the hand-drawn map.
Such a way with words, that Pam has. Such a way with words, that Pam has.
The rest of the cast goes through the motions in the aftermath of the “BBQ slaughter” so let’s recap. Willa, the late governor’s daughter, comforts Tara’s wailing mother with some of her blood and protection over the Reverend’s home. She begins to have visions of Tara being trapped but we chalk them up to an old junkie reverting to her old ways (TARA IS DEAD?). Lafayette has some bonding time with Jessica’s boyfriend (NOW played by Nathan Parsons #actorswap). Jason Stackhouse and his sexual captor, Violet, finally consummated their hostage situation. Jessica had a standoff with an H-Vamp while protecting Adilyn (Andy’s only remaining faerie daughter). Bill Compton and Andy discovered several corpses while searching for the infected vamps’ nest.
OK this isn't a Tara gif but COME. ON. OK this isn't a Tara gif but COME. ON.
The final scene brings us back to church (that’s where Jesus be) where the Reverend attempts to calm the nerves of the diminished population of Bon Temps. Sookie in good faith, walks in and takes a seat, placing a hand on Lettie Mae’s shoulder to console the grieving mother. Lettie Mae might be saved, but she didn’t spare a hateful word for her late (TARA STILL DEAD?) daughter’s best friend. Walking out amidst a familiar cloud of disdainful glares and thoughts, the usually helpless Sookie stands her ground. They may think this is all her fault, and they may be right, but she lets them know that she “knows vampires better than anyone”.
She don't need it where she is... WHERE IS SHE? She don't need it where she is... WHERE IS SHE?
