Boardwalk Empire Season 3 Episode 1 Premiere This week actually picked up with Sam confronting the attacker at the hospital as Andy takes him into custody but not before the redneck tells Sam that they are everywhere. Luna is having a total meltdown ,not coping at all and decides the best thing would be for them to go hunting the rednecks and see how they like it. Personally I am with Luna here but Sam convinces her that he is going to the station and she should just rest while Deputy Kevin sits outside the door. Hmmmmmm not convinced he would be a lot of good in the face of a real attack but there you go. Luna is so disgusted by this idea that her meltdown turns into skinwalking and voila … we have Luna in a Sam Suit. Boardwalk Empire Season 3 Episode 1 Premiere Oh much as I am not a shifter girl you KNOW this is going to be good Shifters I may not care for but Sam Trammell is one hell of an actor!
Luna tries repeatedly to just “shift” back but that isn’t working so she leaves, complete in Sam suit, much to the surprise and confusion of poor Kevin who is, it has to be said, definitely the worst guard ever as he just sits there are lets her/him wander off without checking the room despite the fact that he saw the real Sam leave earlier. He really is useless!
Boardwalk Empire Season 3 Episode 1 Premiere Over at the Authority headquarters (are they still really the Authority with their new agenda?) the vampires are returning from their night on the town and are still all high as kites, except poor Eric who just seems to be at that confused part after being out of it. They tumble out of the elevator, mouths all bloody, worshiping the knowledge that they have seen, or so they believe, the blood goddess Lilith. All it all it looks like a messed up Mardi Gras celebration complete with all the beads and I have to confess it looks like fun!!
And so they sit around and discuss the new plan which seems to be generally Mainstreaming is out and feeding on humans is in. Boardwalk Empire Season 3 Episode 1 Premiere They even send Steve out to procure a few dozen humans to have on hand for snacks including a baby for Nigel, because apparently Lilith wants him to eat a baby. Eric at this point decides he has had enough fun for one night and leaves trying to get Bill to come with him but Bill declines. I wish that Eric was the one that was more on board with this new regime. Perhaps Alan Ball is trying to get the e vampire fans to like him a little better although by setting Eric up to almost be a hero that may backfire. I adore Eric but would love to see him embracing his e vampyric nature. Someone needs to find spirit Godric and tell him to stop interfering!
Bill does show a brief moment of wavering when Salome invites him in for a late night snack which turns out to be the mother of a 4 month old tied to the bed. We get a little flashback to when Bill’s daughter was dying Boardwalk Empire Season 3 Episode 1 Premiere and he didn’t turn her and that seems to be the final straw that breaks the camel’s back and feed on the young mother he does … and he enjoys it.
Back in Bon Temps Sookie is still trying to dump all her fairy light and manages to zap Jason (in the head so no damage done). Jason convinces her that she doesn’t really want to be like everyone else and that he would give anything to be special. Jason has really matured so much over the last few s but it is great to see he still comes up with the funniest lines in the show.
At Fangtasia Jessica is looking amazing and dancing away apparently trying to copy one Boardwalk Empire Season 3 Episode 1 Premiere of the girls on the poles. Perhaps she is after a new job? Anyway as she is dancing what appears to be a fangbanger comes up to dance with her and after telling Jess that his blood tastes like a milkshake (what kind of milkshakes has HE been drinking one would like to know), the leave together with Jess having a very smug expression on her face. She certainly seem to be enjoying her new freedom.
Boardwalk Empire Season 3 Episode 1 Premiere Next up we have the moments I am sure all your furverts have been waiting for. We get to see some naked Alcide action (although personally this is something I could definitely do without). He is busy getting hot and heavy with Rikki (the female werewolf who is to be his second in the packmaster contest) and I suppose the whole point of this is supposed to show that werewolves like it rough … ish …. Well I don’t know. Yes it was mildly more entertaining than having to watch Alcide and Debbie but give me a vampire anyday….and in the middle of it to have a whole “girlfriend” discussion …. SAD!
At redneck central, also known as some weird little shack Boardwalk Empire Season 3 Episode 1 Premiere out in the middle of nowhere, we find out where Hoyt was heading off to last week with his new little hate group buddies. He was being taken to get his surprise, which unsurprisingly, was a very pathetic looking Jessica, who found out the hard way that even if you are a vampire, going home with a complete stranger is probably not a good idea, as she has ended up bloody and chained with silver, her beautiful clothes ripped, and her cheeks stained with blood tears. Poor Hoyt is obviously shocked, even more so when he realises that the plan is for him to kill her, or rather get rid of her because “she is already dead!” Boardwalk Empire Season 3 Episode 1 Premiere Even better they decide that they are going to lock Hoyt in there with her until he decides to do it. Now obviously none of them have watched any movies EVER because we all know that when you say things like that nothing ever goes the way you want it to! I know it, you know it, but these idiots are obviously just too stupid to know it.
Sookie and Jason have decided to pay another visit to the fae nightclub to discover if there is anything they can do to learn the identity of the vampire that killed their parents. Claude originally was saying that the fae don’t get involved with such maters but then one of the sisters opens her mouth to say there may be a way and we get to learn that Alan Ball has invented yet another fairy gift. Hmmmm do you think they sit around Boardwalk Empire Season 3 Episode 1 Premiere saying … I am not sure what we can do about this problem … I know let’s just give the Fae another ability?? In this case the ability is that they can go back into people’s memories of a certain time at the place it happened so it is a field trip to the bridge and what looks like a casting circle that witches would use with everyone together holding hands to “share energy”. Hmmmmm Sookie after what happened last time you were involved in these kind of circles you would really think that you would know better.
Sookie goes back into her mother’s memories but at some point during the flashback things change and she suddenly finds herself seeing things through the eyes of the attacking vampire rather than through her mothers. Oh you know this is not going to be good. Whilst we don’t get to see the actual vampire’s face we do see Claudine and she Premiere calls a name “Warlow” (?sp) just before she blasts him with her fairy light but not before he has managed to kill both of Sookie’s parents. Now this blast actually knocks Sookie out of the circle (see I told you this circle idea was not a good one) and the fairies are saying that she shouldn’t have been able to link with a vampire.
