NCIS Season 10 Episode 1 Bill is moaning about how he was sure she was dead. Fortunately, for us, Eric vamps in to put a stop to this bitch parade. Eric tells Sookie he knows she was not dead and that only he never gave up on her. I must say I enjoyed this contrast with the royal jackass. With the notable exception of the back of trucks, Bill was forever treating Sookie like a fragile object who couldn’t do anything for herself and needed protecting. Eric saw Sookie as someone who could be ruthless and who could fight for those she loves. Naturally, when contemplating her fate, NCIS Season 10 Episode 1 Bill’s thoughts would run to death whereas Eric’s would run to life.
I also love that this scene tied in with Sookie telling her dying grandfather that they never believed he had run off and that they always loved him. Hmm. Maybe TB Eric and TB Sookie have some similarities after all. That Parrot is No More … Oh Wait … Nope. It Has Ceased to Be. We’ve only seen a glimpse of what is to be this Season’s Big Bad but, so far, I like what I see. I really enjoyed the scene in which the coven thought they were attending a parrot wake only to discover that Marnie had other plans. Fiona Shaw has some big shoes to NCIS Season 10 Episode 1 fill after last season’s Trio of Awesome: Russell, Franklin, and Talbot. However, I think she is doing a great job. Her quick turn from mousy to menacing can be chilling.
This parrot has ceased to be. Blood-Sucking Vampire or Blood-Sucking Politician? This was my favorite scene of the episode. Nan is in the midst of a “post Russell Edgington world” damage control and has enlisted a VERY unenthusiastic Pam (this woman simply does not do bullshit) to tape a Public Service Announcment. Pam … well … sucks (but in the most hilarious way). However, in struts Eric prompting Nan to speak the minds of fangirls everywhere NCIS Season 10 Episode 1 “That is the man we want.”
Eric takes over PSA duties and informs everyone that all vampires are not alike and that they are as different from one another as humans are. What we have seen on the show, definitely validates this. Queen Sophie-Ann and Eddie couldn’t have been more different but they were both vampires. Thus, those that bring out the “he couldn’t help himself because he’s a vampire” might want to take note.
This scene effortlessly cuts between Eric talking to the camera and Bill attending a ribbon NCIS Season 10 Episode 1 cutting ceremony at a home for senior citizens. One of the biggest laughs of the episode, for me, came when Eric asked “Who would you rather trust? A vampire? Or a politician?” At this point, the scene immediately cut to Bill looking ever the puppet king politician.
The Sookie Stackhouse Mysteries by Charlaine Harris (that the popular HBO show is based on) is my absolute favorite book series. Book four of the series, Dead To the World, is my favorite of the Sookie Stackhouse Mysteries. So, I was extra excited about the season four premiere because this season will be a (loose) adaptation of my favorite book in the series, and I decided to post weekly episode recaps in honor of this season being an adaptation of that book! NCIS Season 10 Episode 1 So beware if you haven’t seen this weeks episode yet, because spoilers are ahead!
, Season Four Episode One: “She’s Not There”
Warning. Spoilers ahead! As season 4 of opens we find Sookie in fairyland where the fairies are eating all sorts of fancy light fruit. She’s in the middle of socializin’ up a storm with all the fairies. She sees Barry the Bellboy(!) there. Apparently he’s a fairy too. Sookie notices that the fruit is making everyone behave strangely and abstains from the magic apples. She then sees her grandaddy who she hasn’t seen in 20 years gobbling NCIS Season 10 Episode 1 down a gilded, glowing apple. Cut to theme song.
During the theme I’m wondering: Has Grandaddy been in fairy land eating the icky apples for the past two decades? Why don’t the men in fairyland have shirts? Why isn’t Sookie freakin’ out about being in fairyland? How long has Barry the Bellboy been down there chowing down? End theme. We see Sookie filling Grandaddy in on the past 20 years. She tells him that Gran passed away peacefully (If being murdered by a psychopath is peaceful). She also fills him in on her parents’ NCIS Season 10 Episode 1 death. She then sees a weird ugly fairy ghoul thing. She tries warning Grandaddy that she thinks it’s a trap with her mind.
Turns out the fairies can read her mind too. Out comes crazy fairy bitch Mab. Mab tells her she didn’t cotton to Sookie letting Bill get his horny fangs into her and that fairies can’t be sharing their blood with vamps. Tsk. Tsk. She then gets kind of scary and tries to make Sookie eat some fruit. Mab says something about it’s time to harvest. Sookie takes NCIS Season 10 Episode 1 it to mean they want to harvest humans. Mab says, “Eat it” in a scary, guttural voice with her mind and her fairy goons try to hold Sookie down. At this point I’m like WTF is going on?!! Sookie then does the crazy shooting light out of her hand thing and hits Mab with it. Mab is thrown back into a tree.
Then a huge change occurs. Instead of the super glamorous Fae. Everyone turns into decidedly unglamorous, dirty, nasty fae. The scenery is no longer beautiful. Instead of being surround by lush trees in a beautiful courtyard. It is now a barren wasteland. Have the fae been revealed for what they really are? Perhaps. This scares the shit out of Sookie, Grandaddy and Barry. They make a run for it. Some renegades pull them over for cover and a hand light throwing battle ensues. Dirt and rock NCIS Season 10 Episode 1 are flying everywhere. I’m confused. I think we may have lost Barry… A renegade fairy (Is this Claude from the books? I’m confused.) tells Sookie that Mab wants to seal fairyland off from the human world and that Sookie needs to jump off a cliff to get back to the human realm. (BTW So far this season is not doing it for me… I am SO confused about the fairy storyline. is Barry the Bellboy dead?!!)
Sookie and Grandaddy jump and land back in Bon Temps. Grandaddy ate too much of the light fruit, so he becomes ill. He gives Sookie a pocket watch to give to Jason. Grandaddy dies. So long Grandaddy. Have fun explainin’ to Gran where you’ve been for 20 years! Sookie cries. NCIS Season 10 Episode 1 Sookie goes to her house. It’s being painted. The painter tells her to leave. She’s not supposed to be there. She sits in the kitchen and cries. Jason, who is now a cop, comes. He starts crying and says Sookie’s been missing. She finds out she’s been missing 12 and half months. Everyone thought she was dead. (Holy shit!) Jason sold Gran’s house while she was gone.
