After Sookie identifies the vampire bartender Longshadow responsible for stealing from Fangtasia, Bill steps in to protect her. In doing so however, he breaks a vampire taboo and must now face the consequences from Eric and his clan for killing one of their own. Knowing he will be away, he asks Sam Merlotte to keep an eye on Sookie. Meanwhile, Jason and Amy take their vampire captive, Eddie, to Jason's house and confine him to the basement. They draw his blood and Jason undergoes an odd transformation. With Amy now working at Merlotte's, Jason spends his spare time just talking to Eddie and they develop a rapport. Elsewhere, Tara visits her mother's exorcist, but decides she can't afford the $800 cost for her own exorcism. Sam agrees to lend Tara the money needed, while he also deals with Detective Andy Bellefleur who becomes suspicious about his past. With Bill away, Sookie chooses to spend the night at Bill's house but wakes up the next morning with a naked man on her bed... Written by garykmcd

Going to the Vampire Trial
20 September 2009 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Bill kills Longshadow to protect Sookie and now he must travel to face a vampire trial. He asks Sam to protect Sookie since there is a serial- killer hunting her. Jason befriends Eddie but he does not let the vampire go. Sam gives eight hundred dollars for the exorcism of Tara. Detective Andy Bellefleur investigate the naturism camp in Texas and finds that Sam's parent have never been associated to the club. Sookie decides to spend the night in Bill's house with Sam's dog and she has a surprise in the middle of the night.

In this episode, Tara is convinced that she needs an exorcism to change her behavior. Jason has a long conversation with Eddie that tells him that Amy is a psychopath. But the most important, I believe that Sam's secret will be disclosed on the next episode. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Prazer de Amor" ("Pleasure of Love")
