Storyline

Having saved Sookie, Godric orders Eric to leave the premises with her - and to do so peacefully. Unfortunately, Steve Newlin and his followers are waiting for them in the Church and he isn't too choosy as to which vampire they use for their sunrise ceremony. Godric tries a different approach and hopes to make peace with Steve, who adamantly opposes any such possibility. Safely returned to their lair, Godric's peaceful approach and lack of desire for revenge doesn't sit well with some of his followers. Steve also has a surprise for him. In Bon Temps, Eggs tells Tara that he's blacked out again and they try to piece together where he's been. Maryann prepares a special dish for them. Sam Merlotte finds himself under arrest when Daphne's body is found in the restaurant freezer. Having finally slept together, Jessica and Hoyt discover a disadvantage to Jessica being a vampire.

Quotes

Sookie Stackhouse: [to the armed congregation] Let us leave! Save yourselves! No one has to die!
Steve Newlin: The war has begun, you evil whore of Satan. You vampires cast the first stone by killin' my family! The lines have been drawn. You're either with us or against us. We are prepared for armageddon.
Sookie Stackhouse: The vampire you were holding got away. He's a sheriff. He's bound to send for help.
Steve Newlin: I'm not concerned with Godric. Any vampire will do for our grand celebration and we've got one right here.

Intolerance
1 November 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Godric kills Gabe and Eric arrives after; Cedric orders him to take Sookie with him without killing humans. Sarah actually shot Jason with a paint-ball gun and he returns to the church to rescue his sister. Meanwhile people that are locked-in evacuate the church and the Soldiers of God chase the vampire inside the building. Eric offers himself to be sacrificed in place of Godric, but a group of vampires leaded by Stan arrives in the church ready to eliminate the humans. However, Godric arrives and avoids the bloodshed, offering peace to the stubborn and intolerant Steve that does not accept. Eggs tells Tara that he had another blackout. Sam receives a phone call from Merlotte's and finds Daphne's body without her heart in the refrigerating chamber. But it is a setup and he is arrested by Sheriff Bud Dearborne. Maryann cooks the dish Hunter's Soufflé using Daphne's heart and serves the dish to Tara and Eggs. Jessica discovers that she died virgin and her hymen restores after the intercourse. There is a reception for vampires and humans at Godric's house and the uninvited Luke comes wearing a bomb with silver.

"Timebomb" is another good episode of this series. Godric is a vampire that understands the harm his breed did to the human race in the past and intends to keep vampires and humans peacefully coexisting. However, the prejudice and intolerance of Steve Newlin does not accept this situation. Sam is trapped while Tara and Eggs eat Daphne's heart. The funny part of the show is Jessica that can not lose her virginity. My vote is eight.
