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

Did You Know?


When we met Eddie a couple of episodes ago, in True Blood: The Fourth Man in the Fire (2008) he says he looks forward to Mondays because of Lafayette's visits and watching Heroes (2006). This installment introduces the Magister, played by Zeljko Ivanek, who in the next T.V. season became better known as Emile Danko in Heroes. See more »


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 »

Revelations and Sentence
21 September 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Sookie awakes with Sam naked on her bed and she startles with him. Sam discloses to Sookie that he is a shape shifter, and recalls how he was abandoned by his foster parents when he was fifteen. Tara pays for the exorcism to Jeanette and sooner she discovers that she is a grifter. Bill faces a vampire tribunal and the Magister sentences him to transform the young human Jessica into a vampire. Meanwhile Arlene and Rene give an engagement party in the Merlotte's sponsored by Sam. Jason decides to release Eddie, but Amy kills the vampire. Tara has a car accident while driving on the road.

"Don't Wanna Know" is an engaging episode and one of the best of this First Season. The revelation of Sam to Sookie is hilarious when he mentions that werewolves are evil and Sookie questions whether werewolf does exist. The unlucky Jessica will certainly become a vampire. I did not believe that Eddie would leave Jason's basement alive. Who is the naked woman that caused the car accident? My vote is nine.
