True Blood: XXX

"True Blood's" three-episode survey of Kinky Sex, reached, surely, its taboo flaunting pinnacle last night.

"Werebitch" Debbie sets the tone early, blubbering to the King of Mississippi, "They killed my Cooter!"

A sly bunch, the "True Blood" writing staff.

Sookie, as usual, is where the action is. Her response to nearly dying from fang-rape has three acts:

1. She casts Bill out, telling him, "I can't even imagine beginning to forgive you." Good for her, we all say. Because he nearly killed her and is duplicitous, but mostly because he's a huge bore. On his way out, he tells her to lie in the sun and have babies while tears of blood stream down his face.

2. She takes his advice and sunbathes. Tara, taking a break from trembling her lip (seriously, when is someone going to do a montage?), sparks relationship talk. Sookie: "What we had was real, and I can't just flip a switch and turn my heart off.” Yikes. Tara, almost redeeming her terrible accent and all the lip trembling — actually, not even close, but still positive: “You know what you sound like, one of those sad country songs about dumb bitches that let their man cheat and beat on them all for the sake of true love.”

3. Russel and the were-bitch come for Sookie. Lots of girl-fighting. Bill lives only because Erik has seduced the King of Mississippi's consort and consummated the union with a stake in the back, and the King of Mississippi feels the pain and flees. Sookie and Bill celebrate near death by choking each other out during sex.

Elsewhere, in case you didn't get that Erik is masterminding a complex, multi-step plan for revenge that involves collateral damage, he plays chess. Jason, after killing Eggs last season, seems to have developed a vigilante blood lust. Good to see him on his way to doing something darkly misguided instead of just plain dumbly misguided. Bill and Jessica practice Matrix moves. Alfre Woodard escapes the mental hospital to say funny things and warn Lafayette that bad things/people are after him.
