Did You Know?


Jason mentions that he read about these events in a book and then states that "this is the oral history of the zombie war." He is most likely referring to World War Z, by Max Brooks. See more »


When Tara is talking to her mother her blouse straps start up, then change positions, most noticeably her left which is down in some cuts, but up again in others. Since Tara is handcuffed to the table there isn't even the slight chance that she adjusted them and they slipped off again. See more »


Eric Northman: Why should I help you... shifter?
Sam Merlotte: Because I need 'your' help. We need it and hopefully some day I might be able to give you something you need.
Eric Northman: Can you give me Sookie Stackhouse?
Sam Merlotte: No.
Eric Northman: Well that's a shame. That would be a tribute I would not soon forget.
Sam Merlotte: [irate] I'm not here to give you tribute, Eric.
Eric Northman: No, you're here to request my help based on a hypothetical future in which you return the favor... But you are known not to be to friendly towards those like me. Why should I trust you?

Bill visits the Queen that is feeding of femoral blood of a woman and asks her to tell how to kill a maenad and she tells that is not possible. Meanwhile Hoyt protects his mother and leaves Jessica. Tara wants to rescue Eggs, but Lafayette handcuffs her. However Lettie Mae forces him with a shotgun to release her daughter. Later Sookie dominates the old woman and together with Lafayete, they go after Tara. Sam tells Jason and Andy that he is a shape shifter. Jason and Andy decide to bring weapons from the Sheriff's office. Sam feeds Arlene's children and goes with them to Fangtasia. Sam has a conversation with Eric about maenad and asks the vampire to help him. Maryann tells Tara that she has summoned her through Jeannette in the woods, and possesses her again. The locals tell Maryann that the horny god had come and taken Sam and she punishes them. Maxime discloses cruel revelations to Hoyt about his father that was a burglar. Lafayette gives drugs to Arlene and Terry while Sookie breaks in her house seeking out Tara and sees bizarre people inside her house. But Maryann meets Lafayette that kills Karl but is possessed by the maenad. Bill asks the Queen to return to Bon Temps but she wants him to feed of human blood first. Then she tells how he might kill Maryann.

"Frenzy" is a good sequel of "New World In My View" despite some annoying moments. The Queen sequence is extremely silly and irritating and the unreasonable attitude of the unstable Lettie Mae and Tara is just a justification to bring the lead characters to Sookie's house. Jason and Andy together are also stupid but funny. My vote is seven.
