Storyline

After their encounter with the racist policeman, Sookie tells Bill that she won't be seeing him anymore. The next day, Bill keeps his promise to Sookie's grandmother, Adele 'Gran' Stackhouse, to speak at the monthly meeting of the Descendents of the Glorious Dead. Bill becomes very popular when he reminiscences about the Civil War and the Mayor gives him an old photo he found in the archives. Bill also recalls the circumstances of how he became a vampire. Meanwhile, Sam asks Sookie out on a date, but things don't go as he planned for she tells him that she is not ready to commit. A little later, Sookie is shocked by what she finds when she gets home. Elsewhere, Jason gets more vampire blood from Lafayette, and he also takes an interest in Tara after he hears she has a thing for him. But Jason instead sets his sights on a local woman, named Randi Sue, as his latest sexual conquest. Written by garykmcd

When Johnny come marching home
9 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is a lot of back-story in this episode about Bill (Stephen Moyer). Everyone else takes a backseat; even Jason (Ryan Kwanten) and his fooling around with V, which gets him into trouble with Tara (Rutina Wesley).

Bill talks about his family settling in the area and about the War (Civil). The old folks in town are enchanted to talk to someone who may have served with their relatives. Bill, of course, knows them all.

We also see a flashback to the War and how Bill managed to stumble into his fate.

Poor Gran (Lois Smith). Is she dead?
