Blog Critics’ Gerry Weaver is back this week, catching up with this review of last week’s episode. I’m posting a big excerpt this week because Gerry is – as always – right on the money about everything!
I love that this vampire who appears on the surface to be motivated by self-interest is in fact most clearly defined as his father’s son, both in the human sense and the vampire. Eric has been driven for centuries to avenge his family’s death and finally prove to his father, albeit centuries too late, he is worthy of the responsibility he had been shirking. And he was schooled in how to accept responsibility by Godric, who taught him he could not let emotion drive his actions and that patience and planning would get him much further.
It’s a lesson Eric must call upon as he arrives at Russell’s to try and enlist his aid in his fight to save Pam. [...] When it comes to playing these kinds of games, Eric is a much better player than Bill, which in Russell Edgington’s house, appears to be a very good thing.
[...] Alexander Skarsgård shines as Eric dons one mask after another, flirting first with Talbot and then Russell to see if he can gain a tactical advantage for his overall goal of vengeance, while still using Russell to help him free Pam from the Magister. As he tries to play Russell on multiple levels, he must use Sookie as a playing piece, to her anger, though Sookie has no clear understanding of anybody’s situation, including her own.
What can one say about this? I’m at a loss.
