TV Geek Out 215: True Blood, "I'm Alive and on Fire"

TV Geek Out covers True Blood's fourth episode of season 4, "I'm Alive and on Fire," which opens with Eric totally drunk on faerie blood and very randy. When he runs off, Sookie enlists the help of Alcide to track him down. Meanwhile, Jason is still tied up in Hotshot, being gang-raped for his "ghost daddy" seed, but with a little help, he escapes, and takes out Felton when the werepanther chases after him. Back in Bon Temps, Bill finds out that Portia is a descendant of his and breaks off their romance. Proving they might be the worst parents in Louisiana, Melinda Mickens lures Tommy to meet her and then Joe Lee ambushes him and chains him like a dog. Elsewhere, Sookie grows closer to Eric and tells a big fat lie to Bill when he comes to her house intent on searching it for Eric. Jason rejects Crystal and is in really bad shape until Jessica heals him with her blood. And the episode ends with Marnie shockingly casting a rotting spell on Pam! Listen in as TV geeks Heather and Dana discuss all this and more here!

TV Geek Out 214: True Blood, "If You Love Me, Why Am I Dyin'?"

The title of season four’s third episode -- “If You Love Me, Why am I Dyin’?” -- could have been screamed by Jason Stackhouse, tied down on a bed in Hotshot by Crystal to be the “ghost daddy” to all of the town’s women of breeding age (who appear to be as young as 12 -- ew). Nothing else is quite as creepy as Jason’s violation, but a childlike Eric, robbed of his memories, is getting to know Sookie all over again. Jessica betrays Hoyt’s trust by glamoring away her confession of feeding on another man, and Tommy aims to swindle Maxine Fortenberry’s natural gas rights from right under her nose. Meanwhile, Lafayette, Tara and Jesus deal with the fallout of Marnie’s memory-stealing spell, Alcide and Debbie are back in the picture, and Andy falls deeper into his V addiction. And what’s with that spooky doll that keeps popping up at Hoyt and Jessica’s?  TV Geek Out’s Dana and Heather try to cover all the bases of this action-packed episode. Listen in here.
