Storyline

With Jason in jail for Amy's murder, he tries to prove his innocence, while Sookie thinks that the killer is someone that they are close with.

Tara likes it even more when she meets a temporary resident, Benedict Talley, who is nicknamed Eggs. But it is secretly revealed that Maryann and Sam Merlotte have a connection. The identity of the serial killer is finally revealed as Arlene's fiancé Rene, who now sets his sights on Sookie to kill her for her association with Bill. The charming Rene, formerly known as Drew Marshall, is actually a psychopath bigot who kills women who have ever associated themselves with vampires and he ends up chasing Sookie to the local graveyard near Bill's house. After hearing her screams, Bill risks his life by going out into the sunlight to rescue her, while Sam turns into his dog form to help. While ... Written by garykmcd

Goofs

(at around 20 mins) When Sookie gets in her car upon leaving Merlott's, she lets out an exaggerated sigh and her breath is visible. So despite the setting of summer in Louisiana, it's clearly a cold day on the Los Angeles set. See more »

Quotes

Tara Thornton: Sookie?
Sookie Stackhouse: [wakes up, medicated] Tara. You look so pretty. Like someone turned a light on under your skin.
Sam Merlotte: [smiling] Hospital gave her pain meds. She's-she's a little loopy.
Tara Thornton: [in tears] Didn't you listen when I said I'd lose my shit if anything ever happened to you?
Sookie Stackhouse: Don't lose your shit. I'm fine. Did Sam tell you that he saved my life? He turned into a dog and bit Rene.
Lafayette Reynolds: [laughs] Well, shit. I'm gonna need some of them drugs they gave you.

Great Conclusion of the First Season
21 September 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Rene pays a visit to Jason in the jail and then Sookie arrives to see her brother. Meanwhile Tara is welcomed by Maryann and stays in her fancy manor. Jason is approached by a priest of the anti-vampire church Fellowship of the Sun. Sookie accepts a ride of Rene to her house; when the serial-killer chases her, she runs to the graveyard crying for help. Bill awakes, leaves his grave and runs in the sun to help her while Sam heads to her house first and then to the cemetery. When the serial- killer is murdered by Sookie, Jason is discharged from prison.

"You'll Be the Death of Me" is a great conclusion of the First Season. What happened to Lafayette? What is the connection between Sam and Maryann? These questions will only be replied in the next season that I look forward to see. The airhead Jason now has joined the cult Fellowship of the Sun and I believe Bill will have serious problems with this stupid character and also with the outcast Jessica. Even Eric can not support the annoying, but gorgeous vampire. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Assim Você Vai me Matar" ("This Way You Will Kill Me")
