This episode opens with a news report of vampire attacks due to the dwindling of true blood resources. Steve Newlin of course goes on television to assure people that they continue to be safe. Sookie walks into the room and turns off the television. When she hears a knock at her door, she brings a gun to open it. It’s Mike the coroner, who tells her that he is there about the body and then releases his fangs. He takes a bite from her leg saying “I always liked you Sookie, but I had no idea” Sookie ends the problem by stabbing him with chop sticks.
At the compound Molly is brought before Salome and Bill and told to accept the word of Lilith. Instead of begging for her life, she tells them that they are creating havoc based in a book worth a thousand years old. Bill says may Lilith bless you before using Molly’s own device to kill her. Steve gets excited and Salome has to tell him to be calm. It is clear that the message this season is how dangerous religious fanaticism is. We are practically being beaten over the head with this theme and it makes me want to scream I get it already.
Poor Hoyt is getting a ride from his mother home from the hospital and she has plans to move him back in. She says that she had to stand over Hoyt’s bed to stop Jessica from giving him blood. Hoyt has plans to move to Alaska to work in the oil fields and his mother is not impressed. I actually hope he leaves because his character is useless.
The new sheriff is counting the take for the night and is not impressed. He suggests that they add a peep show to increase profits and informs Pam that unless she procreates, he will take control of the Fangtasia and Tara. It seems that the authority is trying to increase the number of vampires.
Andy shows up to investigate Mike’s death. Sookie is sure that he couldn’t have been more than a day old. They discuss his various perversions and fetishes and feel that what happened was not so bad. Sookie even brings up his desire to suck her toes when Mike was under the control of Marianne.
Eric is brought in and Bill tells him that he only has so long to convert. Bill wants to help him because Eric saved his life. Nora forces Eric’s mouth open and Bill puts a few drops of Lilith’s blood in his mouth. Bill leaves the room to watch Eric on the monitor. In front of Eric, instead of Lilith, Godric appears. Eric tells Godric that he tried to save Nora and Godric says that Lilith is a Godless God. Behind Godric, a naked Lilith appears and Nora begs for his forgiveness. Eric screams fight her but Godric says, “it’s not I who must fight her,” as Lilith rips his throat out.
