True Blood: Sookie is the queen of fairies

Or something like that. Right? Surely that's what the gauzy dream sequence, filled with woodland creatures chirping and frolicking in frilly clothes, suggests. "True Blood," after all, is not much for hiding narrative too deep in symbolism. Totally fairies.

Claudine, Sookie's dream fairy godmother, warns Sookie not to let "him" steal her light. Which, again, doesn't appear to be a metaphor for anything so much as a reference to some latent power. The one that allows Bill to not die in the sunlight, perhaps?

Elsewhere, Tara continues to tremble her lip, when not hulking out thanks to a large dose of V. Alcide continues to recede into dullness. Sam finally tells his absentee dad he's nothing more than a scared old man in saggy underwear. Lorena dies in a volcano of blood and is remembered after the show in a pretty great video montage that collects all the money shots in her gruesomely violent relationship with Bill (we'll never forget the head twisting hate sex). Hoyt's new lady friend wants him to taste her biscuits. And, most entertainingly, the King of Mississippi's genteel fascism gets a big platform. Looks like there's a vampire war on the horizon.

Best episode yet this season.
