This week I thought I’d take a different approach to my True Blood recap, given the achingly repetitive nature of the show’s stories and themes. For the first time I bring you Portable’s visual guide to True Blood, a recap of pictures and words to give you a brief and hopefully funny account of what went down this week, because let’s face it, True Blood isn’t exactly always complex enough for psychoanalysis.

First thing’s first… ALCIDE FINALLY TOOK IT OFF. Although it was frustratingly too dark to have a real perve, and Sookie “That’s Because You’re In Love With Me” Stackhouse’s fat head was in the way, it was definitely enough to inspire us to go see Magic Mike.
