**mild book spoilers warning. though this plot was discussed at comic-con**
(Jesus wears the magical color of purple and purple spells are often used to manipulate others/maintain control)
Normally I avoid book connections but it has been established at Comic-Con we are getting this storyline.
Isn’t Hallow supposed to be a female? Maybe not on True Blood. As we know Alan Ball combines characters and changes them around (Tara was white in the books for instance and not as close to Sookie). Why not make the equivalent of Hallow a gay male? He would obviously still be attracted to Eric if it came down to that thing about blood and sex in the books though I doubt that will necessarily be the case on True Blood.
Remember that Lafayette was skeptical to trust Jesus and even called him out as a “satan in a sunday hat” like he correctly pointed out about Eggs: All of this before they KISSED:
Could Jesus have cast a spell on Lafayette through his kiss?
Why target Lafayette? Isn’t “Hallow” supposed to be after Eric? True but Lafayette is an associate of Eric’s and if Hallow is interested in the V at all and Eric..then why not go after a V dealer working for Eric.
Obviously he is into magic and superstitious with his talk of Chango and Elegua and making offerings to them (which shows he has non-traditional beliefs) and he is from, Catemaco, which is known for associations with witchcraft. This is an example of witchcraft in Catemaco: http://www.catemaco.info/brujos/index.html
Jesus is clearly a thinker and he is crafty. He had the foresight to sneak up on the Hotshot rednecks and steal a weapon (the bat) rather than just charge out there like Lafayette.
(the only problem with this theory is Jesus’s reaction to Lafayette selling V. However, spoilers for later episodes reveal that Lafayette and Jesus begin “spiritually” using V together so maybe Jesus starts to connect V to his “magical” side and craves more and it wasn’t planned out from the get go or maybe it was all an act )
In the promo 3×08 (“Night on the Sun”) we hear Laffy’s mom refer to “powers” that Laffayete supposedly has and Jesus could be out to get these powers (Sunnynala helped me remember this)
In the comments section below, my reader Artemis pointed out this spoiler from 3×10 (Jesus’s last episode this season), “The show is casting a Mexican Husband and Wife, described as a young couple in their 20′s, and a Mexican Woman around 65-70. The actors must be fluent in Spanish and deliver a small chant in Spanish.” Artemis also said this: He did seem genuinely freaked out about Lafayette dealing V but later he gets intrigued and does try some in episode 3.10 . [Artemis’s] theory is that something must have happened to him as a result of trying V, and his mother goes after Lafayette and subsequently Eric for selling the V that killed him? Artemis continues with this:Just thought of something else that supports my theory above. In the novels, the spell that Hallow casts on Eric that causes his amnesia is called “Loss”. Perhaps on the show, Hallow casts the amnesia spell in retribution for the loss of her son?
Or Jesus could just be a minion sent by Hallow to get information from Laffy or was hired.
Other real possibilities include the most discussed one and the most obvious, Yvetta.
She came out of nowhere and seems rather exotic to be walking up to some random vampire bar in Shereveport looking for work as an exotic dancer when someone so exotic and frankly hot could be making thousands a night in Las Vegas or something. She also seems to be very interested in sex with vampires but who wouldn’t be if your choices were Eric and Pam, just saying haha? Despite this sex, we have seen no blood exchanged on either end.
Yvetta did get a weird look or what seemed like an “Oh shit” look on her face when the magister and QSA walked in and we know she will be coming back later on the season (that could just mean she is the spy for the authority though I doubt they would or she could be working for QSA).
It could also be a coincidence or she could be working be in a coven for QSA if QSA is a witch (which has also been discussed as much as Yvetta being Hallow on some blogs/boards):
QSA’s Ludis claimed she used magic even to win Yahtzee and she has no qualms selling V so she might be giving it to members of her coven if she has one and using it in rituals. She will certainly have a grudge against Eric but why not use her magic to help her finances?!
Holly, a new character coming on next week, is a good wiccan in the books though the show might be different or maybe not, it is really hard to say at this point what she is all about. I cannot discuss her character so much now because she isn’t on yet.
Yvetta and the queen have been extensively discussed. However, I decided to cover the less discussed Jesus and also because I think there is a stronger amount of evidence suggesting his direct involvement with magic.
Maybe all of these people are involved in Eric’s future amnesia, involved in magic or are simply rats (especially when it comes to Yvetta and Jesus)!
