'True Blood' Gay-Cap: Ep. 4.01 - Tara's Got a Taste for the Ladies?
Eric then returns to Fangtasia where Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) is attempting (and failing miserably) to show her human side while filming a promotional PR video for the AVL (American Vampire League). Eric is asked to step in and is quite charming.
Cut to Bill delivering a speech at a ribbon cutting ceremony at the opening of a local senior center. You can see that the creators are setting up Eric and Bill, the Ying and Yang, one a sincere, handsome face….the other a politician.
Lastly, we get to sexy vamp Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) and Hoyt (Jim Parrack). It seems like the honeymoon is over for these two lovebirds, who are shacked up and playing house in a modest home in Bon Temps. In an attempt to smooth over tensions after an argument, Hoyt suggests a date night at Fangtasia.
From the get go, Jessica is clearly having too much fun teasing the vampires and fangbangers at the bar. While dancing provocatively for the benefit of the club and the viewers (thank you again Alan), you can see that Jessica’s storyline this season is going to be one filled with plenty of sex and exchanges of bodily fluids. She is clearly fighting her vampire urges and it seems as though Pam is positioning herself to be a mentor (and maybe/hopefully more) to the young vixen.
The premiere episode of the season definitely served its purpose, it laid the ground work for the remaining 11 episodes, and it definitely left us wanting more.
