Also, Tara has a run in with her drunk of a mother, Lettie Mae, at Adele's funeral whom tells Tara some unsettling facts about herself.

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 »

Goofs

On two occasions Bill enters Sookie's home without being invited inside. The first is when she has found her grandmother on the floor and he appears in the kitchen behind her. The second is when he rushes in, startling Tara and Laffayette downstairs. He is then found upstairs attempting to wake Sookie in her bed. In an earlier episode Bill clearly states he can not enter a human home without an invitation. However, this is consistent with standard vampire lore in that, once given permission, a vampire may enter one's home at any time until that permission is revoked. At the time of the two examples above, permission to enter the home had not been revoked. See more »

Quotes

Andy Bellefleur: Psycho sonuvabitch, goin' after a old lady that way, just about the sickest thing I ever seen.
Sheriff Bud Dearborne: Nah. I've seen worse. There was a murder about 6 years ago, lady snapped, blew her husband's head off while he was watching the game. Big chunks of brain all over the TV.
Andy Bellefleur: Why'd she do it?
Sheriff Bud Dearborne: I guess she wanted to watch something else. How they hell would I know, Andy? People don't murder 'cuz they're right in the head!

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")
