Did You Know?


In the scene where Tara and Lafayette are cleaning up after the consolation party held at Sookie's house, Tara asks if she should check on Sookie sleeping upstairs, to which Lafayette replies "Trust me, that child is dead to the world right now." 'Dead to the World' is the title of the fourth installment of the Southern Vampire Mysteries written by Charlaine Harris, upon which "True Blood" is based. See more »

Sam Merlotte: [walking into Sookie's room] She's asking for you.
Bill Compton: There something you want to say to me?
Sam Merlotte: I want you to stay away from her.
Bill Compton: You know Sookie doesn't take kindly to people making decisions for her.
Sam Merlotte: You don't need to tell me who Sookie is. I know who she is. I've known a long time.
Bill Compton: Well, then you'll also know that this is neither the time nor the place for you to... mark your territory.

Sookie hears the selfish and mean thoughts of the locals that blame her for dating Bill during the funeral of her grandmother and she has a breakdown during her speech. Bill and Sam dispute Sookie and offer to protect her against an eventual attack of the serial killer. Late night, Sookie feels alone and runs to the arms of Bill. Meanwhile Jason becomes addicted in vampire blood.

In "Cold Ground", Sookie finds that she is alone without the support of Jason and the dwellers and she ends spending the night with Bill and asking him to bite her. Is she going to converted into a vampire? My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Terra Fria" ("Cold Ground")
