This episode throws us for a couple loops and quite a few scenes that made me say, “huh, is this weird or is it just me?”

Plot Twist

This episode opens with Sookie and Ben bringing an unconscious Jason into her house and lying him on the couch. When Sookie goes off to call an ambulance, Ben produces fangs and bites into himself to give Jason his blood. WHOA. What. Is. Happening. My first thought wasn’t that this meant Ben was Warlow, but we do get there eventually.

TrueBlood S6E4 Ben biting himself to feed Jason his blood

Sookie realizes that Ben gave Jason his blood when she sees his frantic exercising and the drop of blood near the couch later on. Sookie uses her newly learned power where she can analyze the blood and see what happened. She learns more than she bargains for and produces a plan.

Coming Up With A Plan

Sookie invites Ben over for a seemingly romantic dinner. Ben shows up late when he gets entangled with Niall. Jason confesses a sexy dream about Ben to Niall and the pieces begin connecting for them. The pair go to hunt Ben and he glamours Jason and attacks Niall. He drains Niall and doesn’t drink the blood, but keeps him alive just enough to bring him to the portal on the bridge where he emerged episodes ago.

Ben throws Niall through the portal. After taking care of Jason and Niall, he is super late to his date with Sookie. While cooking the food, we saw Sookie put liquid silver in the food. Ben devours the food, seemingly without noticing the smell. I find this pretty strange since he’s like the oldest vampire in existence and has dual vampire and fairy powers. He doesn’t sense anything? Was he too distracted by Niall and Jason?

Sookie and Ben end the episode making out on her couch after dinner when Sookie creates a supernova, points it at Ben, and says “Get off me or die Warlow.” I can’t wait to see how this plays out.

Other Storylines

When it comes to the other storylines during this episode, I felt there was much left to be desired.
