There are only two episodes left! And in a clip from Sunday’s True Blood, Sookie’s best friend Tara (Rutina Wesley), who’s just been awakened from Maryann’s influence, is ready to retrieve her boyfriend Eggs.
“We have to go get him,” Tara says to her friend.
“We will as soon as Bill gets back,” Sookie (Anna Paquin) replies. “He might have some information about how to deal with Maryann.” In the last episode, Bill (Stephen Moyer) took off to find help in dealing with the maenad (Michelle Forbes), who’s turned the town’s citizens, including Eggs (Mehead Brooks), into lustful servants with black eyes.
But Tara fights back: “He might have some information? He might not and Eggs needs to get out now … How many times have you put yourself in danger for the man you love? How come you get that option and I don’t?”
She makes a good point. But Tara’s mom and her protective cousin Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis), who rescued her together from Sookie’s house where Maryann has set up camp while Sookie was away, are there and don’t want to let Tara run off after Eggs either.
It turns out they may not have to go anywhere. At the end of the clip it sounds like Maryann and her followers are headed their way.
True Blood airs Sunday on HBO (9 p.m. EST). Watch the clip. –Aaron Parsley
