Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Sheriff Bud Dearborne (credit only)


When Sookie finds Sam asleep without clothes at her bed, he reveals his own secret to her that he happens to be a shape shifter, plus his pet dog seen around the bar is really him in disguise. Sam also recalls important events in his life. Arlene and Rene have their engagement party at Sam's bar and Sookie, already freaked out by Sam's revelation, is attacked by an unseen person in the darkened kitchen. Meanwhile, Tara decides to undergo the exorcism, but later discovers something about the exorcist Miss Jeanette. Jason decides it's time to do something about the captive Eddie, while Amy thinks differently. Elsewhere, Bill has to face the music and appears before a vampire tribunal over his self-defense killing of Longshadow. The normal sentence would be to spend five years in a silver-wrapped coffin but the Magister has a better idea... to make Bill turn a human into a vampire. Written by garykmcd

Sam is a shape-shifter. All his appearances as a non-human have been in the form of a dog. The dog, clearly seen in many episodes, weighs, at most 50 pounds. Sam would appear to weigh 160-170 pounds. The laws of physics (conservation of mass) begs the question: Where is the rest of Sam? See more »

Shut the f*ck up!

Sookie learns Sam's secret while Tara is out in the woods with the voodoo woman drinking down disgusting potions to cleanse the devil from her body.

This is why this show is so exciting. You never know what is going to happen next.

Of course, things don't always turn out the way you expect them to; but there has to be a few surprises.

It will certainly be interesting to see what Jason does next and, of course, we are waiting for Bill to return from his trial, having done something he has never done before.
