“True Blood” Season 3 Episode 12 “Evil is Going On” begins with Russell and Eric chained together with the silver handcuffs slowly barbequing in the sun. Then Eric has a vision of his dead sire Godric.
Spoilers surely follow.
Godric, all dressed in white, implores Eric to show mercy. Eric, bloody Viking that he is, is having none of it. Still, the idea of vampire angels is certainly new and original.
In any case, it is Sookie who, after waking from a dream about a glowing chandelier, stomps out to save Eric and cast Russell further into the light. After Eric is revived with more of Sookie’s blood, Eric suggests saving Russell too, since the ghost of Godric seems to want it. After some discussion of the wisdom of allowing a psycho to live, Russell is dragged in and his charred body chained up for further torment.
By this time, Sookie has had it with all fangers, even Bill, who insists that he still loves her and will protect her no matter what. Later that night, Bill and Eric take Russell out and bury him in concrete so as to be rid of him. Then Bill, damn his surprising but inevitable betrayal, buries Eric too. Eric also knows that Sookie has Fae blood and therefore must go away. So does Pam, by the way.
In the meanwhile, Tara expresses upset that Sam is a shape shifter. She has just about had it with occult creatures as well. She also finds that her insane mom is going to marry a preacher. Tara cuts off her hair, says goodbye to Sookie, then drives by Merlott’s for one last look, and then down the country road.
Jason does something stupid again by warning Crystal’s inbred clan of an impending raid by the DEA. Crystal’s brother/fiancé shoots a couple of people and then makes off with Crystal and some V. The DEA is not happy with this, so now Jason is under arrest with an obstruction of justice charge hanging over him no doubt.
Hoyt shows Jessica a new house he has bought just for them and asks for her hand. She is very happy with this. Unfortunately, Hoyt’s mom is not and is buying a rifle for some nefarious purpose.
Sam, after a chat with Terry about how life is grand, goes after brother Tommy with a pistol.
Lafayette is still having visions of blood and death. Jesus tells him that he can help him as he, Jesus, is a witch and can train Lafayette to manage the visions.
After finding out that Bill had been working for Sophie all along to get at her Fae blood from Eric, who seems to have emerged prematurely from his concrete nap, Sookie disinvites Bill from her home and her life forever. She runs out to Gran’s grave for a prayer and a weep, but then the other Faes appear to her and take her off to someplace unknown.
Sophie, since she also knows about Sookie’s Fae blood, must also die. Bill lures her to his house and then they proceed to engage in immortal combat.
To recap, Russell is buried; Eric is also buried, but comes out; Tara is gone; Sookie is gone; and Sam is about to do a Cain to Tommy’s Abel. Hoyt and Jessica are happy, Hoyt’s mom is not, Lafayette is scared, Jesus is going to help him, and Bill or Sophie are about to have the true death.
Fade to black, roll credits, until the next season.
