While Sookie is till the most sought-after vampire food in town, everyone else is looking for a way out of Bon Temps or a way to survive now that vampires are free to feed on humans. Lilith makes another bloody appearance but Russell is fed up with playing by her rules.
Hoyt and Jessica
Hoyt was always just Jason's BFF, living in the background and being controlled by his mama until Jessica came along. Being in love with a teenage vampire isn't easy, but they tried. After almost being eaten by wild hogs, he leaves the hospital with his Maxine who wants things to go back to normal. He wants to take a job on an oil rig in Alaska, anything to escape Bon Temps. At Merlotte's, he tells Jessica and Jason about his plans but they don't want him to leave. He asks Jess to glamour him so that he won't think of her anymore and so he can forget Jason. Reluctantly, Jess tells him to go off to Alaska to start his new life and that after he closes his eyes they'll be gone. It was one of the more heartbreaking moments of the show as Jason gets up from the table after saying "I love you, Bubba," for the last time. The next night, he spots Hoyt on the road and pulls him over. Hoyt doesn't remember him but recognizes the Stackhouse name and asks if he is related to Sookie. Jason starts to ask him again not to leave but realizes he needs to let his old friend go. He goes back to his cruiser and cries in Sookie's arms.
Pam and Tara
The new, and temporary, Sheriff Elijah comes to tell the girls that along with taking most of the money they make at Fangtasia, they need to make 30 new baby vamps by the end of the year. New vampire law. Tara isn't having it, especially since if they don't abide by the new rules, he gets all of Pam's assets and Tara becomes his property. Pam is almost ready to give up, seeing no hope in trying to save the bar and says that they'll live in the wind, just like her and Eric did. Tara calls Elijah to tell him that she tried to turn Ginger but think she might have killed her. "I don't know nothing about birthing no baby vamps!" Checking her pulse, Ginger stabs him with a silver knife and then Tara cuts off his with a sword. Ah, too bad, I could have gotten used to him. Pam comes in just in time to see Ginger screaming and covered in viscera. They're basically on their own, and Tara doesn't want to run because "nobody f***s with us in our house." I have to say, Ginger was really good at playing dead.
Sam and Luna
Sam desperately tries to get Emma back, even pretending to be from a pet magazine to try to get Steve Newlin to be on their cover. It doesn't work, but they find out that Newlin will be at a televised debate in New Orleans with a Congressman David Finch. He convinced that vampires were behind the bombings of the True Blood factories and that Newlin himself can't be doing too bad without the drink because he looks so healthy. That might have something to do with him and Russell eating an entire frat house and dancing to Katy Perry. Disguising themselves as mice, they sneak into Steve's dressing room at the debate to search through his phone. When he comes back they slip into his back and get carried all the way back to the Authority's headquarters. The receptionist tells him that even though she's okay, little Emma has shifted back into her human form. She's cute either way but Steve doesn't like her as human, and she could be eaten by that baby killing vamp.
Bill, Eric and Russell
Poor Molly, she was loyal enough to make the iStakes and now she has to be killed by one. They give her a chance to profess her devotion to Lilith but she refuses and Salome uses the app on her. Bill and Nora try to get Eric to convert too but he still refuses. He gives both him and Nora drops of Lilith's blood so that they'll see visions of her again. As the blood starts to take affect, Godric appears to him. Eric apologizes for not getting through to Nora who is stunned that he has come to them. He says that he has evolved and that Lilith is godless.
Not liking people talking behind her back apparently, Lilith tears into Godric's throat and kills him. His children weep as they see their maker fall into a bloody puddle on the floor. Watching from a security camera, Bill can hear them talking to Godric, but cannot see him. He praises Lilith for what she does, then sends armed guards to bring Jessica back to the Authority. He preaches to her about the bible, reminding her of the studies her parents made her do, and says that she'll be safer with them than by herself in Bon Temps. In a meeting, Eric apologizes for not believing in Lilith before and even forgives Russell for killing his family. As they talk about how to bring Lilith's teachings to the masses (omg, what are they Jehovah's Witnesses?!), Russell says that their real problem is that they can only be out for half the day. He suggests they get their hands on faerie blood to walk in the daylight. Disturbed by what he's suggesting, Salome says that faeries are an "abomination," which causes Russell to fling her across the room. Eric and Bill know that the faerie blood only works for a short time, but Russell is done with following Lilith and decides to leave on his own.
Sookie and Jason
Poor Sookie can't catch a break. She just wants to eat her Chinese food in peace until Mike the coroner comes knocking at the door. She invites him in and he starts for his neck. She shoots him with her gun but that does little but provoke him more. He bites her leg and she grabs a pair of chopsticks and stabs him in the back. Andy arrives to help her clean up the remains, telling her that he knew Mike was a creep because he kept autopsy pictures on the same computer as his porn. Ew! After almost being killing, again, she decides to stay with Jason. In Gran's bedroom he asks her what else she said to her about what was under her bed. He realizes that she wasn't talking about her box of pictures, but what was underneath the floorboards. "Who's the smart one now!" It's still not you, Jason. They find a rolled up piece of parchment paper with weird drawings on it. They take it to a professor who thinks they might be pulling a prank on him because it doesn't look like any human language he's ever seen. Finally they take it to Claude and Claudia, or was that Claudizhia, these damn faeries, to see if they can read it. An older faerie Maurella translates the text for them, written by a Stackhouse ancestor it says that he promises the first female faerie in their family to Warlow, the vamp that killed Jason and Sookie's parents. Jason asks who that was, but it turns out that the only fae-bearing woman in their family has been Sookie.
I actually really enjoyed this episode, if only because it seemed short compared to this season's earlier episodes. So we're back to Bill, if he has actually comes to his senses whatever is left of them, and Eric to stop Russell again. Let's actually kill him this time, okay guys. We only got a brief appearance from Lafayette, only he could make a pink, off the shoulder top look so hot with a shotgun.
There wasn't anything from Alcide or any of the other wolves but I'm sure they'll be a part of what's about to go down in the two episodes that are left for the season.
