Storyline

Vampires and humans clean up in the aftermath of the explosion. Eric tricks Sookie into drinking some of his blood, much to Bill's dismay. As a result of the lapse in security, Godric's leadership falls under review but his response surprises everyone, especially Eric, who begs him not to go through with his plan. In Bon Temps, Maryann is out to find Sam Merlotte and complete the ritual sacrifice. She casts a spell on everyone in Sam's bar to get them to look for him. Lafayette and Tara's mother forcibly remove her from Sookie's house. Hoyt and Jessica get used to their situation and Hoyt decides it's time to introduce his true love to his vampire-hating mother.

Trick, Prejudice and Termination
1 November 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Luke blows up the house and guests with the bomb, killing vampires and humans. Eric uses his body to protect Sookie, and lures her telling that he is dying. She sucks the silver pieces with his blood from his body and now he is connected to her. Godric assumes the blame and loses his position of Sheriff due to the incident. Tara and Eggs realizes that they have successive blackouts and Maryann plays with them. Hoyt tells his mother that he is in love with a vampire and schedules a meeting with Jessica and him at Merlotte's. Maryann possesses Bud trying to catch Sam to complete the sacrifice, but he escapes from his cell. Maryann goes to the Merlotte's and controls the minds of clients, asking them to find him. Lafayette and Lettie Mae go to Sookie's house to bring Tara back home. Godric decides to terminate his existence.

In this episode, Eric tricks Sookie and she sucks his blood. Hoyt's mother prejudice and intolerance forces his son to leave her. Tara's mother resists to the temptation of Maryann and rescues her daughter from the evil being. But the great surprise is the self-sacrifice of Godric that decides to end his existence witnessed by Sookie. My vote is seven.
