Trivia

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 »

You're all I got.
13 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was one powerful episode as events take place around Gran's (Lois Smith) murder and funeral.

Tara (Rutina Wesley) is becoming a more powerful character and Wesley is showing herself to be one accomplished actress.

Jason (Ryan Kwanten) seems to be coming apart at the seems and I am not sure where he is going to end up.

Of course, the culmination of this episode is the sealing of the deal between Sookie (Anna Paquin) and Bill. Things have to go in a whole new direction now.

There are so many loose threads that this series just has to keep on getting better.
