I think about a world to come where the books were found by the golden ones, written in pain, written in awe by a puzzled man who questioned, "What are we here for?" All the strangers came today and it looks as though they're here to stay.

Spoiler Alert: True Blood S04E09

Not a lot to report on this week. The episode was fantastic, but since it's nearly the end of the season it was heavy in plot. There was one interesting moment of note in this episode that I want to spend some time with, however, and here it is:

1. Ghost Whisperer

We've heard Jesus proclaim that he's a witch several times since he was introduced, but honestly we haven't seen much of anything beyond him holding hands with other "witches." Finally, we get to see Jesus in action.

When a possessed Lafayette takes Arlene's baby hostage, Jesus is able to talk to the spirit inside of him, reason with her, tie up the loose ends that are binding her to this world, and exorcise her. The reason this is important is because it seems pretty clear that Marne needs a good exorcising. But can the spirit inside of her be reasoned with in the same way?

See you next week!
