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.

Did You Know?


Eric Northman: [to Sookie about their escape] I can have you outta here in seconds.
Sookie Stackhouse: There's kids out there.
Eric Northman: The other humans wouldn't think twice about hurting us.
Sookie Stackhouse: Why didn't you bring Bill with you?
Eric Northman: His attachment to you is irrational. It clouds his judgment. He would kill every child in this church to save you.
Sookie Stackhouse: Why aren't you?
Eric Northman: I'm following Godric's orders and getting you out of here. That's all.

Best episode ever.
9 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm gonna keep this short and sweet and I'm literally going to give nothing away. I don't care who reads this or not and who cares. But this episode was by far the best episode of True Blood I have ever seen. Hands down. It literally had everything. The episode was generated and put together to perfection and then distributed to us in absolutely nothing short of perfection. Sookie, Jason, Bill, and Eric were all amazing and now we finally see Godric in his own and he was outstanding. He was so gangsta and so ill, nobody can mess with him. He will FSU. Next week is going to be so ill, and I won't say why, for obvious reasons. Happy viewings!
