The episode starts where last week’s ended, with Jess walking out the doors of Bill’s mansion. But as she steps into the sun, Jason tackles her back inside the doors, saving her life. Jess snaps out of the trance and kisses Jason...whoa boy!
He brings her back downstairs to Bill and she realizes that she has killed one of the guards, thus the tears of blood start flowing. Jason ties her back down with more silver while talking to Bill about what has happened. Bill asks that Jason doesn’t report this, as an officer of the law. Jason agrees, but counters that Bill can’t be mad that he shot one of his guards to rescue Jess.
Marcus, the pack alpha, is having a rally and says to his pack that weres are no match for the vampires. He says he is aware that something big is about to go down with the vamps and witches and that the pack must stay out of it.
Meanwhile, Sam goes to visit Luna and tells her that he kicked out Tommy. Luna says Sam should have told her Tommy was a skinwalker, so Sam rehashes what happened. She ends up forgiving him when Emma (her daughter) comes outside and asks Sam to play Barbies with her.
Over at Sookie’s, she’s unchaining Eric, who’s a hot mess of silver burns. He hasn’t fed since he killed Claudine. Sookie being Sookie offers to feed him, and then Eric offers his blood. Sookie (idiot) agrees and says that she trusts him not to drain her. Eric advises that she should keep some silver in her hand in case he can’t stop himself, but then he says my second favorite line of the night:
“I won’t betray you, ever.”
Mmhmm, we all know that’s going to happen once he regains his memories. In any case, they go on that weird V high and end up in the shower, where the water becomes snow, then the shower turns into a forest (said in the Old Spice Guys voice because that’s how that scene made me feel). And they get busy, again. Can someone explain to me why their sex scenes are always dark but I can clearly see Sookie’s boobs? Would it be too much to ask for a little lighting on Eric’s booty? Please! Cheesy. Is anyone else tired of nice Eric? So done.
Jess comes back home to Hoyt and she says she wants to move out. Hoyt says he can’t live without her and he’d die without her. Then he starts sobbing and getting all sorts of gross with the whinning and the sobbing and the ugh. He keeps saying he’ll die and Jess, well, Jess bashes his head upside a counter and kills him. I admit, I actually made a noise of shock when that happened.
Only to curse out the TV when we found out it was a dream.
Bill ends up glamouring a reporter so he can issue a statement about the one vampire that Antonia managed to get out into the sun. He claims it’s a suicide due to the intense anti-vampire hatred. Meanwhile, Antoina and Tara are watching the news and see his statement, which agitates Antonia. After the report, Bill calls Antonia and is shocked to hear Tara pick up. He ends up apologizing to Antonia on behalf of all vampires and requests a truce. After a long, drawn out convo, Antonia agrees to meet with Bill in the cemetery alone at 12 a.m. If that’s not asking for trouble, I don’t know what is. Or it’s the beginning of a bad joke: “A vampire and a batshit-crazy witch meet in a cemetery...”
For some reason we have Maxine taking pictures of the dead vampire remains at the crime scene. Andy allows her, but later when Jason comes to the scene, Andy tries to lick the remains. I think he needs to be on My Strange Addictions.
Then we have another weird-ass scene where there is someone walking through a dark house full of dolls and only lit by a flashlight....okay? Turns out it was Tommy at Maxine’s house, stealing her stuff. He ends up at Merlotte’s with the mineral-rights guy that offered money to place something on her property. After skinwalking as Maxine, Tommy is in the woods puking and passes out. Why is he still alive?
Alcide and Debbie are at a pack party when a fight breaks out; Alcide intervenes right away. Marcus ends up thanking him and saying that he is alpha material, that if he wants to move up the ranks, he can. Alcide says he doesn’t really want to get involved in pack politics. But he agrees with the not helping vampires. Debbie ends up asking Alcide to stay away from Sookie because she’s always involved in vampire politics, and he agrees.
At Merlotte’s, Arlene walks into the kitchen and starts yelling at Terry for having his back to Mikey, who is in his playpen in the kitchen. Terry says he has a mirror above the stove to watch him, and off they go on their argument about Renee’s ghost. While their backs are turned, the woman comes back to sing to Mikey. Lafeytte walks in and sees her, and she gives him a weird look. He then utters the line of the night:
“Fuck this shit!” And he leaves.
Jess really comes back to Hoyt this time and tells him they moved too fast and it was a mistake. Instead of crying like her vision, Hoyt loses his shit! Starts screaming at her and saying she doesn’t deserve him and that he doesn’t want to be with a virgin for the rest of his life (remember, Jess reverts to how she was right before she died, a virgin). Then he says he doesn’t want to be with someone dead, OUCH! He then rescinds his invitation and out the door Jess goes.
Back in bed, Eric and Sookie are talking and off their V/Fae blood high. Eric says they should run away so he can remain the same, but Sookie refuses, saying they should fight with Bill.
Poor Lafayette is sleeping when he starts to dream about the weird lady that’s stalking Mikey. We see her walking to a house holding the doll (I told you the doll was the evilness) and a man walks out of the house. She tells him she got the baby a doll with all her money, and he tells her the baby is dead. Turns out they were in a mixed relationship and he killed the baby. This bothered me on so many levels; I actually had tears in my eyes. I am a product of a mixed relationship, so it hit a little close to home. I don’t get why he killed the baby; he could have just left her with the baby. It really disturbed me. Especially the “no funeral” part.
Anyways, Lafayette wakes up and that’s when the lady possesses him. They end up at Andy’s house where Arlene’s family is staying, and they take Mikey.
Bill agrees to let Sookie and Eric fight the witches with him, after really not wanting Sookie anywhere near it.
At Luna’s, her ex looks in the window and sees Sam. Guess who the ex is? Marcus, pack alpha, and he is pissed. He comes in and flips out. Sam says he’ll leave, but Emma (the daughter) screams no. Turns out little Emma is scared of her father, and who could blame her!
Luna threatens to call Marcus’s parole officer if he starts anything, then goes to put Emma to bed. Marcus tells Sam he’s stepped onto the wrong porch and basically says “it’s on.”
Jess goes to tell Jason she broke up with Hoyt and Jason freaks out. He’s been best friends with Hoyt since childhood and she’s broken his heart. He also rescinds his invitation and out the door she goes.
Bill goes to meet with Antonia in the cemetery—turns out neither came alone. Sookie is surprised to see Tara on Antonia’s side. Bill asks Antonia to remove the spells on Pam and Eric, and in return he will command no harm come to her, ever. Sookie hears, telepathically, Antonia doing a spell and warns Bill. Thus the fight is on. Tara kills a vampire and Pam takes her gun. Just as Pam is about to kill Tara, Bill commands that no harm ever come to Tara. Pam is pissed (“This is fucking lame”). After Pam leaves, Tara asks Bill why and he states she knows why. I’m assuming because of Sookie.
Alcide lied to Debbie and goes over to Sookie’s to warn her about the upcoming fight. Meanwhile, Debbie is in wolf form following him. Alcide hears the fight and runs to find Sookie.
Just then, Sookie gets shot. Bill and Eric go to help her, Bill gets chained in silver, and Antonia takes control of Eric with a spell. Leaving Sookie lying on the ground bleeding. Until Alcide comes up and carries her away. All while Debbie is watching.
So, why the death of the baby? What in the world is Antonia doing to Eric now? And why is Tommy still alive?!
