Review - True Blood Season 4 Episode 9 Let's Get Out of Here

Aside from another cool cliffhanger, this time with Antonia mindcontrolling several vampires to wreak havoc at the hotel, "Let's Get Out of Here" was a pretty bad episode, filled with lots of random scenes outside of the main plot. I don't want to get caught up on the negatives, so this review will be short.

First off, the Mavis plot wrapping up was stupid and random. The writers have been hyping Jesus and Lafayette's powers since the third season and after Lafayette learns he's a medium, he starts seeing a ghost. Meanwhile, Arlene continually freaks out about her baby and instead it looks like something is wrong with him.  But all these problems came from Mavis, who lost her baby long ago. A few episode later and poof, she's disappears into the heavens after they dig up the remains of her baby. Um... okay. Sure there was lots of agonizing towards the end, but the build-up was nowhere near the eventual resolution.

The rest of the plots are almost stagnant and the episode doesn't included any new dynamics. Alcide gets in trouble with the pack, Tommy pretends to be Sam, Sookie cooks up a hairbrained scheme, Andy's weekly V craze, Jason and Jessica, and so on. The witches and vampires are largely put on the sidelines for this episode and it makes for a boring time.

Score: 7.7/10
