'True Blood' Gay-Cap: Ep. 4.01 - Tara's Got a Taste for the Ladies?
Speaking of V, former town dealer and kitchen cook Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) and his now boyfriend Jesus (Kevin Alejandro) serve as the catalysts for introducing this season’s antagonists (as if Sookie and the crew need any more), the witches. They drop in on a coven led by Marnie (Fiona Shaw). Lafayette is skeptical at first but when Marnie starts speaking as Lafayette’s former client/lover Eddie (season 1), he runs from the shop.
During the short scenes with the coven, we are introduced to a member named Katerina (Alexandra Breckenridge). She will, no doubt, become important this season as we see that she is the intriguing connection between the witches and the vampires. We follow her to a guarded compound that closely resembles Russell Edgington’s, the King of Mississippi and Louisiana’s (Denis O’Hare) palace.
How could that be…..Russell was pushed into a vat of concrete last season? Katerina enters the mansion, heads into the office and we find Bill, behind the desk, sitting in Russell’s chair. What?!?! Well, since Bill was last seen fighting Queen Sophie-Anne (Evan Rachel Wood), we have to assume that he won the battle. Is Bill the new King of the Vampires? And why is he working with the witches?
Season four isn’t wasting any time in building up Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) and Bill’s rivalry for vampire world domination and Sookie’s affections. We see both Eric and Bill greet Sookie when she returns from fairyland. Eric takes the opportunity to point out that he never gave up on Sookie, unlike Jason and Bill, two men who claim to really love her. Oh, how sweet…
