Storyline

Eric finds himself under investigation and house arrest by the American Vampire League over the disappearance of the Magister. He tells them his entire story and of the danger Russell represents. Tara attends a group therapy session but is surprised by an unexpected late-night visitor. Jason comes to her rescue. Jason is having his own problems as he tries to protect Crystal from her family. The biggest problem is Crystal herself who can't seem to decide what it is exactly she wants to do. At the restaurant, Jessica has a heart to heart with Hoyt, who reveals his true feelings about his new girlfriend. Arlene is convinced that her unborn baby is pure evil. Bill meanwhile awakens in a beautiful garden where he seems able to walk around in daylight and is told of Sookie's true nature. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

Franklin Mott: Don't, don't. It's an ugly, ugly sound.
Tara Thornton: I-I killed you.
Franklin Mott: That's what everyone said. That you did it. I thought why would anyone spread such vicious lies? Why would you kill someone that you loved?
Tara Thornton: I do not love you.
Franklin Mott: They said that too. That, I refused to believe. I had to see for myself. You wanna know what hurts the most? That you didn't mourn. If you had a shred of love in your heart for me... you would have mourned me! I love you so much.
Tara Thornton: You don't love anything. You can't. Because you are a ...

Things FINALLY pick up in this episode
27 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Nan's stormtroopers enter Fangtasia and put Eric and Pam under house arrest. They then return the next day to tell him he can kill Russell but he's totally on his own. Russell misses Talbot and decides to carry his remains around in a cut crystal bowl (with a lid). Beel and Suh-keh take a nice shower together. Jesus and Lafayette get down. Sniveling Tara is still sniveling Tara, but she does manage to attend a rape survivor self help meeting. (Interestingly...in his own way...Eric is also a trauma-survivor.) Arlene anguishes over her pregnancy. Hadley's son Hunter has the same gift as Sookie, and Hadley is afraid for him because she knows that vampires are intrigued by humans with that gift. Bill appears to have a dream (or a vision) in which he meets Claudine (the fairy). Crystal's father comes to Merlotte's, makes a scene, and Sam beats him up. (What's strange is to see all the judgmental looks Sam gets afterward.) Franklin returns and Jason kills him using a shotgun loaded with wooden bullets.

Then the show really picks up. Russell suddenly appears on a TV news set, kills the anchorman, and proceeds to explain that the VRL is presenting a false front, and that HE represents the true face of vampires.

Russell: "Why...would we seek equal rights? You...are not...our equals. We will eat you...after we eat your children. Now...time for the weather. Tiffany..."
