Healed by Vampire's Blood
19 September 2009 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Sookie is brutally beaten up by Mack and Denise Rattray in the parking lot of the Merlotte's, but Bill saves her, killing the couple. Then he gives his own blood to Sookie to heal her wounds. Meanwhile, the police see a tape that Maudette Pickens had recorded of Jason and she having sex that proves that he had not killed the woman and they release Jason. Bill asks to visit Sookie and her grandmother Adele welcomes the vampire under the hostility of Jason and Tara. Sookie feels and improvement of her sense due to the vampire's blood. Later she visits Bill without previous announcement with the names of two electricians to help him to repair his manor and she is surrounded by three evil vampires.

In this episode, there a witty and funny joke with the head-line of newspaper article highlighting that Angeline Jolie has adopted a vampire. This show discloses confidences about Bill and Sookie and she discovers the healing power of his blood; further their love is heating up. My vote is seven.
