Sookie is home from the hospital and is convinced that her relationship with Bill is over. She receives a message from Eric, who is still in Mississippi, that Russell is still out to get her and so prepares for his arrival. Eric has his own plans to get revenge on Russell. With Bill now home, Jessica begs him to teach her how to be a vampire. Tara is still suffering from her ordeal but refuses to talk to anyone about it. Jason is pleased when Crystal shows up on his doorstep, though with a black eye, saying she will not return to her home. Jason promises to defend her against her father and fiancé, but they too have their dark secrets. Lafayette meanwhile comes home to find his mother waiting for him, claiming she was released from the care facility. Written by garykmcd

Night On The Sun? More like Night Of The Dying Dead
27 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The problem with TB now is that it's so's almost funny. But that's a bad thing when a show is not trying to BE funny. The acting and writing and directing are all so bad it's impossible to take anything that's happening seriously any more.

Bill and Sookie are some of the most unlikable lead characters to ever come down the pike -- at least when they're in the same scenes together. Tara is insufferable. Jason is a total moron. Arelene is irritating. Sam is OK -- sometimes. Lafayette's character has all but disappeared. Alcide is almost a non-entity. Hoyt looks like he's had a lobotomy. Andy is tolerable at best. Terry is OK, but he's a bit player. And that leaves Eric, Pam, and Russell. There's just not enough meat on the bones of this series any more. It's become a bad melodrama at best. I think the line that best describes this episode comes to us courtesy of Debbie: "THEY KILLED MY COOTER!" Oh yeah. It's come down to lines like that. the mighty have fallen...

As far as the specifics of "Night On The Sun"...Tara is still Tara. Jason is still Jason. Andy is still Andy. Alcide is still Alcide. Sookie is still Sookie. Russell still wants Sookie. Eric still seeks revenge against Russell, and kills Talbot. I love you Beel. I love you Suh-keh. I'm sorry Beel. I'm sorry Suh-keh....blah...blah...blah. This show just drags on like the previous shows, although it does pick up at the end. And the music is better, with great tunes from Eilen Jewell and Lucinda Williams, among others.
