‘True Blood’ 5×11 Review: “Sunset”

“Sunset” is a fitting title for this week’s episode, since the sun is setting on Season 5. This was the penultimate episode of the season, and I have to say I kind of expected the various storylines to consolidate themselves a little more before we got to this point, but for the most part, the majority of our major characters are all sort of in the same arena of plot points. I think the scene between Pam and Sam (whom I can’t recall ever having interacted before this moment) when they pass each other in the hallway of the Authority of Lilith headquarters really represents the season as a whole. Both of them were being held as prisoners of the Authority and being led to their respective fates, and when they crossed paths they both had the same reaction: “What are you doing here?” Sam shouted desperately for Pam to help Luna (who was locked with the other prisoners and Emma), and Pam responded with her typical mix of apathy and irritation, “Who the f–k is Luna?” That was the perfect example of how all these characters have been on completely different pages this season. Even when they wind up in the same place, they have totally different motives and agendas. I’m really looking forward to all of them getting together in the finale for a little group drum circle and sharing from their “What I Did This Summer” essays…
