The elevator opens on, of course, Salome and a bunch of guards, so Molly and Eric get silvered and taken back into custody. One of the dudes grins at Bill so hard it looks like his face is going to break, but it's pretty cute. Maybe he's just laughing at the shitty cover of the title song this week. Who knows, who will ever know? Just know this: Bill Compton is as skilled at finding new ways to disappoint you as Eric Northman is good at charming you with his exploits.
Eric: "You traitorous motherfucker! Why?"
Bill: "Just because!"
Which means it's gotta flip back over, right? If Eric believes that Nora is not acting on her own faith, of her own agency, then the same must hold true for Bill. Except we saw him choose, just pinch his nose closed and jump off into the abyss, right? So really, they're just giving in. Like Bill always does.
Vampires versus humans! Everybody has a gun on the whole show! Jessica and Jason continue to endanger one another! Bill probably has a fiftieth change of heart! Werewolves on the vampire side! Shifters technically against the humans probably but not necessarily with the vampires! Faeries the same thing, but the other way! Anna Paquin just keeps getting prettier and prettier! MARTHA BOSEMAN 4 SHREVEPORT PACKMASTER! And maybe Russell reveals that his entire character assassination this season was all one huge misdirection and actually he's still after the Authority and Monarchy, like he was all along until now. Right? I can't live in a post-post-Russell Edgington-world-world much longer. It makes me feel too weird.
