True Blood Review: Season 6, Episode 7: “In the Evening”
The stakes are higher than ever on True Blood Season 6. After Episode 6's devastating death, we were on pins and needles waiting for Season 6, Episode 7: "In the Evening" (July 28). Did it live up to expectations? Read on for Wetpaint Entertainment's review of the episode, and then rate it yourself below.

This week the goings on in Vamp Camp continued to heat up, with Willa learning the truth about Hep V, Jessica showing more than a little love to the hot vamp who didn't rape her last week (James), and Pam using her sexual appeal to get herself out of solitary.
Meanwhile, Sarah, after finding the Governor dead, decided that the best solution was to pretend that he's alive and in hiding, leaving her in charge of all things Vamp Camp. That was bad news for Jason, who found himself thrown into the general population of female vamps.
From bad to worse: Bill failed to save Nora, and his plan to save everyone from the sun chamber is coming along slowly at best, though he did seem to convince Sookie that she needs to help to save her friends.
The drama in Vamp Camp was balanced by everyone back in Bon Temps trying to come to terms with Terry's death, a storyline that brought out the best in a lot of the actors; Carrie Preston was especially remarkable. In other news, Alcide is in trouble with his pack for his decision last week, and we're having a hard time caring, given everything else that's going on right now.
Honestly, we found this episode slow, though there were some standout scenes (Willa and Pam, Jessica and James, Eric weeping over Nora, most scenes with Arlene). We give it 3/5 stars.
