Storyline

Still being held in the basement at the Church, it becomes obvious to Sookie that Steve knew they were coming, but is not sure why. That tells her there is a spy among them. She tries to get a message to Bill, but he is being held prisoner by his maker, who refuses to let him go after the woman he loves. In flashbacks, Bill's conversion to a less violent lifestyle is revealed. When Steve learns Sookie's true identity, he makes the connection with Jason and assumes he's a spy. As they begin to wreak their vengeance, Sookie is saved by someone she has yet to meet. Back at the hotel Jessica and Hoyt decide to sleep together. In Bon Temps, Sam manages to escape, courtesy of a drunken Andy Bellefleur. Any plans he may have had for getting even with Daphne are overtaken by Maryann who has her own plans for her acolyte. The rest of the revelers have no memory of what happened the night before. Written by garykmcd

Hoyt Fortenberry: I was gonna wait, you know, till I met the right one. Well the right one never showed up. By then I had waited so long, I figured I couldn't give it away to just anybody. So now I'm twenty-eight... most girls probably think I'm like some ...

A Chick Running with a Bull Mask is Hilarious
16 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

Overall this episode was good and the storytelling is solid. But it wouldn't be any fun without mentioning the two big distractions. First, Maryann chasing Sam is just plain funny. It's obvious the actress couldn't move very fast (probably couldn't see out of the bullhead mask) and watching her wobble stops the scene dead. Funny though.

The second thing is Godric. So far his character is intriguing, but how did he come to save Sookie? He just appears out of nowhere and nobody questions it. Bam! Suddenly he's there saving the day. The lifeline to this part though is that it's already been established vampires adhere to a fairly strict hierarchy so they don't question, they get told by their superiors what's what. I'm just surprised Sookie, who for being a telepath her whole life can't manage to contain her surprise at all, about anything, doesn't ask. Actually, her character is getting to be less likable as time goes on.

We'll see how it pans out for the Stackhouse family...
