Storyline

Mack and Denise Rattray get their revenge on Sookie but Bill steps in to save her. Subsequently, Sookie's senses begin to undergo a transformation. She later learns that the Rattrays are dead and the police immediately suspect Bill. She also begins to wonder just how far vampires will go when a leading opponent of the Vampire Rights Act is killed in an accident. Bill agrees to visit Sookie and her grandmother and Tara and Jason invite themselves for the evening. Jason Stackhouse gets to see the video of his evening with Maudette Pickens. The police release him but his experience doesn't dissuade him from sleeping with every woman who will have him. Written by garykmcd

Healed by Vampire's Blood
19 September 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Sookie is brutally beaten up by Mack and Denise Rattray in the parking lot of the Merlotte's, but Bill saves her, killing the couple. Then he gives his own blood to Sookie to heal her wounds. Meanwhile, the police see a tape that Maudette Pickens had recorded of Jason and she having sex that proves that he had not killed the woman and they release Jason. Bill asks to visit Sookie and her grandmother Adele welcomes the vampire under the hostility of Jason and Tara. Sookie feels and improvement of her sense due to the vampire's blood. Later she visits Bill without previous announcement with the names of two electricians to help him to repair his manor and she is surrounded by three evil vampires.

In this episode, there a witty and funny joke with the head-line of newspaper article highlighting that Angeline Jolie has adopted a vampire. This show discloses confidences about Bill and Sookie and she discovers the healing power of his blood; further their love is heating up. My vote is seven.
