True Blood 406 Recap – I Wish I Was the Moon
The episode begins with Eric and Sookie amidst a hot makeout session primed to turn into something more. They make it to the couch sans much of their clothing when King Bill walks into the house and interrupts. When the dust settles Eric and Sookie are taken to the King’s mansion where Sookie defends Eric and refuses to leave without him. Sookie is barred from the home as a result.
Eric meets up with Pam in his prison but he is unwilling to try and recover his memories as she so desires. He does not want to remember the things he has done and tells her he is a changed vampire. Meanwhile Bill seeks permission from Nan and the AVL to execute Eric and is just a little too pleased with how easy it will be to off his competition for Sookie’s heart.
Arlene and Terry wake up to a blazing fire in their bedroom and when Arlene cannot located baby Mikey, Terry picks her up and removes her from the home just as it explodes. Much to Arlene’s relief baby Mikey was outside on the lawn with his doll before the blaze started which of course leads her to believe it was Rene behind it and that he is trying to kill her from the grave. Mikey sees a lady behind his mama that no one else can see though and my early thoughts are that she is a spirit and this is voodoo or something related to that creepy doll.
Andy asks Holly out on a date while she is cleaning up debris from the fire but not before he gives Sam a hard time.. AGAIN.
If you don’t shut the fuck and stop fucking with me I am going to turn into a Dobermann and chew off your God damn face. – Sam
Sam asks Tommy to take care of the bar while he is dealing with the fire situation. Tommy agrees and runs into more than he bargained for when he spazzes out and shifts into Sam.

While wearing his Sam suit he fires Sookie and has sex with Luna.
Jesus appeals to his grandfather for help and he is told to go and find a sacrifice before they can discuss it. He and Laffy go out into the wilderness and a rattlesnake appears to them. During a ceremony Jesus’s grandfather makes the rattlesnake bite Jesus and then he locks him and Laffy in the room. Before exiting he tells Lafayette that he has to find a way to save Jesus. Laffy is understandably freaked out and clueless at first but then he is possessed by a spirit who saves Jesus.

Marnie is still being held at Bill’s home and she makes a final plea to Antonia to possess her and help with the vampire problem. We see a flashback where one of Bill’s current sheriffs feeds on Antonia and rapes her. Then she inhabits Marnie’s body to seek her revenge.

Eric is about to be killed by King Bill but Eric accidentally makes a case for his own survival when he accepts his death but pleads for Pam to be released and for Sookie to be told that she saved him. He also shares his wishes that Bill and Sookie be reunited so that she can find happiness. The King finds it unappetizing to kill his foe when he is clearly being the better man and also when his own hypocrisy is being brought to light. If he (Bill) really loved Sookie he would not kill the man she is falling in love with. So Bill does the only thing he can reconcile with his humanity and he lets Eric go. Eric of course goes right into the arms of Sookie and they make love under the moonlight next to a sparkling lake.
