A band of rogue H-vamps crashes the vampire-human mixer at Bellefleur's, with shocking results. As Sookie seeks refuge from accusations that she's somehow to blame for the chaos in Bon Temps, the "one vampire for every human" plan moves forward. In the face of a vigilante insurrection led by redneck Vince, Bill receives aid from an unexpected source.
A trio of hostages taken in the Bellefleur's attack looks to a familiar face as a possible liberator from the H-vamps. Sookie and Jason visit the neighboring town of Saint Alice, where a young woman's diary offers clues to the potential fate of Bon Temps. Spurned by Lafayette, a desperate Lettie Mae turns to Willa to channel her family past. Vince whips his fellow vigilantes into a dangerous frenzy. Pam's search for her maker leads her to a very familiar place.
Sookie hatches a dangerous plan to take down the H-Vamps; Jason eyes a family future with Violet; Willa is forced to find a new place to stay; Sarah Newlin sheds her past; Pam offers Eric a compelling reason to return to Louisiana.
Exhausted from her recent travails, Sookie finds herself the unwilling host of a festive mainstreaming party in Bon Temps. In search of an elusive adversary, Eric and Pam head to Dallas and attend a gala fundraiser. Andy makes a life-changing decision; Jessica and James reach a crossroads; Bill loses himself in remembrance of human days.
As Bill's condition worsens, Sookie desperately turns to her ancestor for a solution. Andy's worry for his missing daughter leads him to enlist Jessica's help. Eric and Pam close in on Sarah. Jason deals with Hoyt's return.
Sarah is captured and kept prisoner at Fangtasia. Jason and Jessica feel Violet's wrath. Lettie Mae bids farewell to Tara, witnessing what Tara wanted her to. Through Sookie, Bill is made aware of the cure, but will he accept it?
