Who cares about the Bellefleurs?

Bless my ears! We didn't need to hear Tara talk until the end of this episode. This Sunday we watched as she was like a bird stuck in a car. Banging around and wrecking the place. Screaming as Sookie and Lafayette stood by with startled looks in their eyes. At one point Sookie "hears" Lafayette saying he's going to stake Tara. I could only wish. Alas, no. She convinces Lafayette that they can train her like Jessica. Um, Jessica is anything but "trained". Onto her story. Another boring bunch of college kids having a kegger with her. To make things a bit more ridiculous, the Jessica scene opens with her holding a keg over a girls head as the girl does what some might refer to as a keg bomb. In a slapstick moment, Jessica drops the keg on the girl to throw another girls head out the front door so she doesn't yack in the house. It was like a scene from a Merrie Melodies comic. Unnecessary. At the door, the minister wanting to buy Jason. Where are Eric and Bill?
Let's hold off on them and revisit some more Bellefleur family crap. Terry Bellefleur freaks us out by standing over his and Arlene's bed almost hypnotized. Arlene slaps him into reality. He's dreaming of war. Again. He's at work. He's dreaming of war. Again. He throws Arlene into a rack in the kitchen. She's had enough so she visits Patrick to find out what's going on. Are you bored yet? Who cares about the Bellefleurs? We want action. We want the vamps. We don't give two shits about Arlene and her family woes. Luckily we were left with Patrick telling Terry they better "find him before he finds them". Let's hope "him" is some kick ass killing machine that is invincible. That would make me happy.
Ok, let's get to the good stuff. Eric and Bill are going through interrogations and are given a solution of silver to be pumped into their veins intravenously. Pretty awesome. Of course the interrogations could have been better. We all know telling one guy the other guy ratted him out doesn't work. For some reason they thought these old ass vamps would fall for that. Pretty lazy writing in my eyes. However, things got interesting when they were brought in front of the council. Enter Chris Meloni. He was pretty bad ass. All of the council chanted a creepy old prayer while Chris Meloni dropped blood into their mouths. Yum. Now we know that they are mad at Eric and Bill for killing Nan. Big whoop. She was a pain. A vote is out for their "true death". Two opposing sides and then this cherub looking kid says a line that made my face contort. I can't quite remember it. Something about them killing authority. They couldn't have found a creepier kid? Cast the "zoom zoom" kid. He's super creepy. Nope. They chose this awkward slurry boring kid. That's why you got a 7 again, episode two. The extra .5 is for the awesomeness of 1) Bill saying he will deliver Russell Edgington to the council since they didn't know Russell had escaped. Whoa!! 2) for Tara saying she will never forgive Sookie and Lafayette but got sprayed by silver as she ran out the door screaming. Sweet! and 3) for the carnage at the end. Russell is back looking like Ben Grimm as "The Thing" but creepy enough to have us wanting more.
Come on True Blood, let's make next week an 8.
See you then.
