It seems to be a growing consensus that HBO’s “True Blood” continues to break its own rules and that one of the only watchable factors is all of the sex, alongside a dabble of gore. Yet, people stay connected and give strength to this otherwise mediocre cable drama that’s costing you $30 a month to watch (you could do better with your money). After last night’s episode, HBO previewed Episode 5.05, “Let’s Boot and Rally”.
In Episode #53 (5.05): “Let’s Boot and Rally”: “With time running short, Bill (Stephen Moyer) and Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) enlist Sookie (Anna Paquin) to probe for clues on Russell’s (Denis O’Hare) hiding place. Unable to deal with the demon magic inside him, Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) calls out to Jesus’ (Kevin Alejandro) spirit for help. Patrick Devins (Scott Foley) and Terry (Todd Lowe) are held hostage in the bunker of their Iraq War buddy Brian Eller (Brian Geraghty). Jason (Ryan Kwanten) wakes to a disturbing dream; Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) gives Tara (Rutina Wesley) advice on adjusting to vampire life; Sam (Sam Trammell) visits Luna (Janina Gavankar) with bad news.” (Written by Angela Robinson; directed by Michael Lehmann.)
