What exactly was the difference between Sookie and Eric in this episode?
They both have a source of guidence, light, wisdom that they (LITERALLY) look up to but don’t always listen to (Godric, Claudine). Notice the striking parallel of these images that coincided with eachother in the very beginning of the show. In my opinion, this set the stage for showing the similarities and deep connection between Eric and Sookie in this episode (in order to set the stage for next season by showing Sookie’s capacity to one day love Eric back. “Forgive Him,” Godric said. This statement by Godric tied in with Sookie’s forgiveness of Eric as well. She forgave him for using her to go up against Russell and went to save him!
Eric has saved Sookie’s life. She has returned the favor. Eric goes out his way for the ones he cares for, Sookie does the same.
Sitting on the throne means a lot of things in relation to Sookie and Eric. This symbolizes Sookie’s growing strength and confidence in herself through Eric’s influence (she now possesses the same confidence, strength as Eric, once again they are paralleling each other; there is no true difference between them when it comes to who they really are). This symbolizes Sookie’s growing place in Eric’s life/ Eric’s heart and her influence on him(she almost rules over him as his in some ways for better or worse). Body language wise, this symbolizes Sookie’s desire to be closer to Eric by being near things that belong to Eric and literally being “enveloped” by them, like when a girlfriend wears her boyfriends sweater. It is an ownership gesture as well from the boy’s side. Therefore, this could also symbolizes Eric’s mind in that it could show that Eric feels almost like Sookie will be his eventually or subconsciously she already is, after she has saved him, they kissed, and have a full blood bond now. He feels her place is with him.
They both enjoy revenge against their enemies, thoroughly, and can be taken by their taste for vengeance.
Both of them felt the sting of betrayal by Bill for trusting him.
Both of them lash out the people they care about love when they are upset.
Therefore, the answer could be: almost NOTHING anymore! Will they find the peace in each other eventually, without the peace of a kind of “death” that Sookie seeks in the end and Godric says we all achieve once we are dead? Can Sookie find light in Eric and vice versa without having to resort to “death” or checking out from life voluntarily in order to do so. Unfortunately, I think Sookie going to fairyland like that, so easily, represented a kind of “suicide,” similar to what Godric did to escape his reality as a vampire. Of course, Sookie did it to escape her pain and the tough reality of being the who she is while alive.
Could Bill and Sookie look any more disconnected right now while Eric and Sookie look more and more connected?
This is the relationship that Bill wanted to seal with marriage? In the words of Lorena, he must be “delusional!”
Speaking of relationships…
Though being honest with someone you care about can push them away now, it would be worse if they found out on their own and push that person away forever.
Sometimes you just got to let people go for your own good, even if it hurts them now.
No matter how good you think things are, you must look beyond the surface.
It’s not always easy to fight for someone that you love and could complicate your own life.
Sometimes you’ll have to resist the urge for retaliation, violent or not.
Seeing the truth in others is also never easy and can be a burden…
but can also be positive. “You a witch whose a nurse whose a dude?”( you a honest vampire whose thoughts I can’t hear whose a powerful rich sheriff whose a hot guy /you a telepathic fairy that saved my life whose a waitress whose a hot woman) WELL SHIT, I GUESS I LUCKED OUT THEN, HUH?
No doubt, “Bad Blood (3×01)” from Bill invaded Sookie’s life and left her “Beautifully Broken (3×02).” “It Hurts Me Too (3×03), and the audience and Eric too. ” (9) Crimes (3×04)” had been commited against the heroine and it brought her a lot of “Trouble (3×05),” and left her saying, “I Got a Right to Sing the Blues (3×06)!” But it wasn’t over because everything was hitting the floor/ “Hitting the Ground (3×07),” and although it left her shaken, the “Night on the Sun (3×08)” was a set back for her progression against the “Bad Blood (3×01)” because it invaded her life once again during the “Night on the Sun (3×08)” But our heroine realized that “Everything is Broken (3×09) in her life because of the “Bad Blood (3×01),” and began to think “I Smell a Rat (3×10)!” “Fresh Blood (3×11)” was provided into her life and the life of the audience after the kiss and heroics of Eric showed themselves to us and Sookie, our heroine. Sookie finally realized that “Evil is Going On (3×12)” in her life after the true “Bad Blood (3×12)” was revealed to her. What will happen next?
