If Jesús and Lafayette still lack chemistry, at least they've stopped doing vampire blood, thus sparing the audience their interminable V-trips. Instead, the couple have gotten involved in a witch gang whose leader already is already more lively than that boring old Maenad, Marianne.
As supernatural soap operas-cum-social allegories go, True Blood is as good as it gets. Though past seasons have been marred by erratic, frequently misguided pacing, Sookie's celestial adventure seems to have eradicated the most problematic plotlines. If the rest of the season fulfills the potential of these early episodes, we viewers run little risk of winding up like vampire Godrick: jaded, soul-sick, but mostly bored to death.
