So she does. She accidentally zaps Jason about a million feet through the air instead of Russell, and then he eats her so bad that he can see Faerielande for himself. And invites himself on in for a little buffet.
It's the finale! All of the storylines suddenly come together and make sense! Just kidding!
I mean, every season everybody wigs about how the show doesn't bother connecting the dots or cutting down on characters, and every season I'm like, "You guys are so silly! Half of this is just casting sides for a character we'll see in one scene total. And the parallel storylines are challenging, admittedly, but you can always figure it out if you try." This year, I don't get it. I just don't understand. Lala, the ifrit, Tara... Is there any chance that the finale won't just be a cliffhanger onto the actual war next season? I know that it will be great -- this episode was packed with fun -- but will it actually wrap itself up and be like, "Ah. Got it"?
Theories: Maybe it's about being up against something so big that you have to make an unmakeable choice? Like Pam shushing Tara, that had consequences beyond just making this point, but the point was there to be made: Sometimes you do a gross thing because it's the only thing. Not even just the less-gross thing, but literally the only thing. I can see that with Terry, and Tara; even the reverse-racist shifters with their Dragon story, or the werewolves knowing they're going to get chewed up by the vampire politics. But then, Warlow? Sookie doing even less than she has ever done in this whole show? I don't know. I will keep thinking about it, but hopes are not high. See you next week.
