True Blood: “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” Reviewed

Contributor: D. Chandler

“Everybody Wants to Rule the World,” takes care some unfinished business as well as provides groundwork leading to a predictable high octane finale.  If you remember, last week at Authority headquarters, the Chancellors were reveling in the afterglow of feeding on many humans. Eric received a message from Godric; as they realized that the killing of humans was wrong. Claude and his sisters help Sookie and Jason visit the site of their parents’ deaths. We learn that the old vampire who killed their parents is now again interested in Sookie.

On tonight’s show as the Authority proceeds with Lilith’s plan, Eric (Alexander Skarsgård) plots his escape. Gran (Lois Smith) directs Sookie (Anna Paquin) to a clue to her parents’ murderer. Andy (Chris Bauer) and Jason (Ryan Kwanten) search for leads to the identities of the people behind the shifter killings. Alcide (Joe Manganiello) recalls his pack induction; Arlene (Carrie Preston) gets caught in Terry (ToddLowe) and Patrick’s (Scott Foley) crossfire; Steve (Michael McMillian) gets a new pet.

With the season coming to an end in four weeks there are a lot of characters that futures are in jeopardy. On last week’s show Hoyt saved Jessica’s life after his new pals captured her but he disappeared soon after. So have the powers that be decided to kill Hoyt off? You never know! I never expected Roman to be killed off so soon. In the preview for tonight’s episode Jessica is very upset and is crying. Jessica says as she sobs, “If anything happens to him it is because of me!” I guess she is feeling guilty because Hoyt saved her from the rednecks who are killing sups. The police think he ran off to stay out of trouble but Jessica thinks that something terrible may have happened to him.

Tonight’s episode is going to be another bloody exciting one, that you won’t want to miss, so be sure to tune in for our live coverage HBO’s True Blood tonight at 9PM EST! While you wait for our recap hit the comments and let us know what you think of True Blood season 5, so far!
