Stan: You should have told me Eric hired a fuckin' human, Isabel.
Sookie Stackhouse: Now wait just a minute.
Bill Compton: [about Sookie] Respect her!
Isabel: [to Stan] I couldn't tell you, Stan. You've been off on your own for days.
Eric Northman: Are you certain Godric was abducted by the Fellowship of the Sun?
Isabel: No!
Stan: Yes! They're the only ones with the organization and man-power.
Isabel: But they're amateurs. It doesn't make any sense. This is Godric we're talking about. Two thousand years old.
Stan: Old don't make you smart.
Isabel: Besides there's not proof.

The Reward of God
31 October 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Sookie finds that the bellboy Barry of the Hotel Carmilla is also a telepath, but the youngster is afraid of his ability. Eric visits Bill and tells that Godric was his creator. Maryann tells Tara that she is moving to Sookie's house with Karl and Eggs, and she uses her power to convince Tara to invite her. Sarah feels attracted by Jason and gives "the reward of God" to him in the bathtub.

In this show, the ridiculous training of the "Soldiers of God" is extensive and boring. One of the best moments is the flashback when Eric tells how he was transformed in a vampire. I am intrigued with the power of Maryann, who cast a spell in Merlotte's making everybody angry with the needy Tara. Is the shape shifter Daphne truly in love with Sam? Or is she part of a scheme? My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): Not Available
