At the end of episode six of "True Blood" this past Sunday, we were left with a lot of mixed emotions. Between Terry passing away, Bill killing Governor Burrell and Sookie sexing up Warlow, we didn't know whether we should be sad, happy or confused. As it turns out, we were mostly confused. While we have a lot of questions about Sunday's episode, let's just start with one; Sookie, what are you doing?!
As Warlow's story unfolds this season, we are beginning to find out that the old half-faerie half-vampire isn't so bad after all. Although he did come clean about massacring his village when he became a vampire, he seems to have real shame for his behaviors and even goes as far to say he hates all vampires. While we are starting to SLOWLY trust Warlow, Sookie's trust issues with him are apparently gone. After Bill sends Warlow to save Sookie from her dead father's ghost, she immediately whisks him away to the magical faerie land where chandeliers hang from clouds and the air is always hazy. When Warlow tells Sookie to tie him up for her own good, she follows his orders, at least for a little while. As Warlow goes on about the battle of good and evil inside him, Sookie decides she's had enough, she must have him now. After allowing Warlow to feed on her, she goes in for a taste of his blood directly from his neck. All turned up on vampire/faerie blood, Sookie begins to remove her clothes and climbs on top of Warlow. As their steamy sex session comes to an end, a bright light shines through their bodies like some sort of supernova. Um, could someone explain to us what just happened? What does that light mean?
We have a number of theories as to what the sex light could be; a faerie orgasm, the conception of a baby, or light transfer. Let's start with the simplest answer: an orgasm. While we aren't too familiar with faerie sex, we did not expect a light to be released when two faeries shared a special experience. The light could be the result of an orgasm, but that seems pretty boring. The next possible answer is, they conceived a baby. How cool would it be for Sookie to have the first part human, part faerie, part vampire baby?? While we don't know if Warlow can even supply the right fluids for a baby to be a real option, we are somewhat hoping he can. It would certainly be a huge twist. Maybe Sookie would learn to use protection next time! The third and final theory we have is, Sookie was stealing light from Warlow. We definitely do not know how light transfer works, but it could be possible that having sex with Warlow could transfer light to Sookie. We know that Sookie's light is not unlimited so perhaps she was thinking ahead and trying to recharge her powers, who knows?
One thing we do know is that the light had some sort of meaning and we can't wait to find out just what that meaning is.
