Storyline

Sookie is thrilled to learn that Bill wasn't in the fire that killed four people, which included his three vamp friends. Her enthusiasm doesn't sit well with either the customers or her co-workers at Merlotte's Bar. Meanwhile, Jason and his new girlfriend, Amy Burley, are desperate to get more vampire blood for the rush of it. They decide to follow Lafayette to his source, but Amy's actions reveal that she has clearly done this before. Following her exorcism, Lettie Mae is a new person - sober and hard working, she has also become an active member of her church. Tara is pleased with the transformation, but is not happy with her own lot in life and considers an exorcism of her own for her angry and belligerent behavior after lashing out at Sookie and Sam for no reason. Elsewhere, Arlene Fowler asks Sookie to baby sit for her children while she and her fiancée Rene, go out. But Arlene is taken aback when she realizes that Bill will also be spending the evening. Later, Sookie is not ... Written by garykmcd

Goofs

Amy and Jason kidnap Lafayette's source for V, vampire Eddie. She puts a chainmail hood over Eddie's head as soon as he opens the door, they tie him up in silver chains and carry him to the back of Jason's truck. While Amy drives them home, Jason lets her know that he is not happy about what she has gotten him into and Amy says to him "If you want to make the same arrangement with Eddie that Lafayette has go right ahead" (something to this effect). However, nothing happened that would let her know what the vampire's name was. Eddie is still in the back of the truck fettered by the silver hood and chains. See more »

Quotes

Sookie Stackhouse: I've been admiring your necklace all day.
Amy Burley: Oh, thanks. It's a lariat. I made it.
Sookie Stackhouse: You make jewelry?
Amy Burley: It's a easy way to earn extra money. I can make you one if you want.
Sookie Stackhouse: Thanks, but I don't think my boyfriend much likes silver. You know my brother's a dog, don't you?
Amy Burley: [confused] Sorry?
Sookie Stackhouse: He's all charm and smiles in the beginning. But the second he gets tired of you, he gonna stop calling. Before you know it, he's off with some other floozy. Not-not that you are one, but trust me. It's as regular as ...

Who's nailin' Sookie?
27 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sookie started this episode upset over the alleged loss of her first love. Things have a way of working out and a graveyard scene was the highlight of the show.

Anna Paquin just gets better every week. This is her show and she shows it at the end where she is helping the vampires find out who stole their money.

Jason (Ryan Kwanten) seems to be settling down with his new girl Amy (Lizzy Caplan), but we are left wondering what kind of trouble she has gotten him in with the gay vampire.

Tara (Rutina Wesley) cannot believe the change in her mother, so she finally takes the big step. I can't wait to see that.

There is so much going on that one wishes it were daily instead of weekly.
