HOLLYWOOD —As the “True Blood” season two encore continues, fans are at a fever pitch of excitement. Especially at the end of the episode, with the minisode feature of the upcoming season three showcasing Eric and Pam auditioning people who want to work at the vampire bar. Season two was exciting and entertaining, and having the opportunity to relive the suspense, the drama and the intrigue is a phenomenal experience. Many readers are expressing excitement since they had not watched the series before and they are joining in the True Blood hysteria which has engulfed millions of loyal viewers.

On Sunday’s episode titled “Release Me” still being held in the basement at the Church, it becomes obvious to Sookie that Steve knew they were coming, but is not sure why. That tells her there is a spy among them. Fearing a traitor within the vampire nest, she tried to get a message to Bill, but he is being held prisoner by his maker, Lorena, who refused to let him go after the woman he loves.

Also, in flashbacks, Bill’s conversion to a less violent lifestyle is revealed. When Steve learns Sookie’s true identity, he makes the connection with her brother Jason and assumes he’s a spy. As they begin to wreak their vengeance, Sookie was saved by someone she has yet to meet. The vampire Godric, who is Eric’s maker appears just in time to save Sookie from being further assaulted by one of the reverend’s henchmen. Back at the hotel Jessica and Hoyt made a decision to sleep together.

Back home in Bon Temps, Sam managed to escape, courtesy of a drunken Andy Bellefleur. He shifted into an owl to escape Maryann’s clutches, literally. Any plans he may have had for getting even with Daphne were overtaken by Maryann who has her own plans for her acolyte. The rest of the revelers have no memory of what happened the night before. Maryann’s spell over the town is about to become even creepier and more diabolical.
