True Blood 4.3: Amnesiac Eric

Eric loses his mind at the end of True Blood 4.2, as the witches' coven turns the tables and exerts a surprising resilience to his powers.   In 4.3, we find that he didn't lose all of his mind, just his personal identity.  In other words, he still know he's a vampire, but has no recollection of Sookie, owning her house, what he's been up to since he became a vampire lo those centuries ago.

What Eric will get back of his lost identity, and how this happens, will make for a good continuing story.  But, for now, the crucial question is how this will alter his relationship with Sookie.

He's still deeply attracted to her, without understanding why.  He'd love to bite her, make love to her.  Sookie could have used this as an opportunity to sleep with him, and staying more in control of the relationship than if Eric knew who he was, but of course goodie two-shoes won't do that.  Too bad - that attitude is one of the annoying things about Sookie.

Meanwhile, her brother Jason is in the hands of the panther people who have no such qualms.  It's getting to the point now that every major character is becoming or is already supernatural.  Who's left who's not:  Hoyt and the Bellefleurs?

Well, I guess that's ok by me.   After all, if it's just plain old humans who interest you, you've got just about every other series on television.
