The season opens with Bill hearing a female voice calling to him. The door to the sanctuary where Lilith’s blood is held opens. Lilith appears covered in blood and says, “only one can lead us. I choose you.” She then instructs him to drink all of the blood, but he shakes his no and walks away. I don’t know about you but I am getting tired of seeing Lilith covered in blood.
Nora is sitting by herself and she is remembering what Godric had to say and what Lilith did to Godric. Her thoughts are interrupted by Salome, who asks if she has changed, but Nora turns the conversation to Russel. Salome assures her that this is part of Lilith’s plan and that Russel is inconsequential. The two women share a kiss and Nora leaves to let the others know their plans.
Jessica grabs Bill’s phone and she says that she wants to warn Jason because Russel is on the loose. Bill says no and that part of accepting the word of Lilith is distancing themselves from the concerns of human. He believes that the inhabitants of Bon Temps, including Jason and Sookie are little more than food. Jessica asks about making Jason a vampire and Bill wants to know if she wants to be a maker. Jessica suggests that she loves Jason and that if she made him a vampire that they could be together and be blessed by Lilith. Bill does not fall for it and points out that she is manipulating him. Bill calls in two men to make sure that Jessica turns Jason and demands that they not let her out of their sight.
Eric is locked in a room and is pacing when Nora enters. They begin to make love and she says repeatedly forgive me and asks what they are going to do. Eric swears to get them out of there. I wasn’t fooled one minute by Eric’s so called appeasement last week.
At the fae bar, Sookie is reflecting on the fact that she was sold over 300 years ago. Sookie tells Jason that she believes that the vampire her ancestor sold her to came for her. Jason reminds Sookie that Marella said that talking to an elder could give them some answers. Jason tells her that he has to leave because of the vampire attacks and instructs her to stay where it’s safe.
Limos pull up outside of the vampire authority and they are filled with military personnel. Salome welcomes a General and he demands immediately to see Roman. The General demands to know what is going on because they bombed the true blood factories. He reminds them about the arrangement that the U.S. government has with the authority and suggests that this time they have gone too far. Apparently, there are talks at the pentagon about eradicating all vampires. They tell him that they are sanguinist regime now. The general calls them psychotic bloodsuckers. The general says that they have videos of Newlin and Edgington killing a sorority and reveals that the government are prepared and have weapons which the vampires have never heard of. He makes it clear that humans own the day and that vampires don’t have a chance. As the general goes to leave, Eric breaks his neck. I like this scene because it reminds everyone exactly how dangerous vampires are.
Jessica is waiting for Jason and she tells him that they can trust each other, clearly trying to send a message. One guard starts pushing Jessica and threatens to turn Jason himself. Back at the authority compound, the vampires are arguing about what their next move is. Eric says that he will go on a glamouring campaign and Nora says that if they act quickly they can handle the situation. As they leave, Bill suggests that they take a security detail for backup. Clearly, he doesn’t want to give either Nora or Eric the chance to do their own thing.
Jason and Jessica are being buried alive and says that she is sorry. Jason sits up suddenly and shoots the guards. Jessica tells him that Russel Edginton is after Sookie and that Bill and Eric aren’t going to save her this time. Of course, Jason appoints himself Sookie’s rescuer because heaven forbid we have an episode without a man Sookie’s life running to protect her.
At Fangtasia, Pam tells her Tara that killing a sheriff is going to go up the chain to the authority. Tara says fuck the authority and Pam commands her never to speak about Elijah again. Pam is clearly scared and Tara has no idea about the force they are dealing with. Jessica enters and asks Pam to hide her, but Pam says no. Jessica tells Pam that she knows where Eric is and promises to tell if Pam agrees to hide her.
