The hardest aspect of the show to understand is the role of blood, both real and synthetic. The previous two episodes point to its powers: it is already known that vampire blood has effects on humans and supernaturals who consume it, but the powers of supernatural blood on vampires has not been explored. It is clear that were- blood does not have any additional affect on vampires and it is unknown if were- blood would have any affect on humans or other supernaturals. It seems unlikely that it would given Sookie’s “dream” involving the fairies whereby fairy blood has some intrinsic connection to “the light” while vampire blood has some intrinsic connection to “the dark.” In a sense, the only “light” that a vampire can experience, without dying, is the blood of a fairy. Thus, vampire blood has significant effects on all other beings and fairy blood has significant effects, at least, on vampires (if not other beings as well).
(11) Food, especially in its most base form as “pure life” in blood, has physical/bodily and mental effects on those who consume it; food is never inactive, but the principle that generates the possibility of action. Food is pure potentiality.
Also: if my Eighth Thesis is correct, the “foodie/organic/happy meat” position embodied by Talbot has now been ruled out.
