Page was viewed times


The show opens to the bridge where Sookie's parents died. A cloud of mystical light appears, with Macklyn Warlow struggling to get out of it. At the same time the contract beside Sookie's bed begins to glow. Warlow finally enters the earth realm. Soaking wet, he bares his fangs and speeds off.

Jason is trying to control the crashing car when the stranger reappears in front of the car and uses light magic to halt the car. Jason jumps out pointing his gun. He tells the stranger, who he thinks is Warlow, to meet his maker and prepares to shoot. The stranger reveals himself as Niall Brigant and explains he is Jason's fairy grandfather. Jason questions whether the stranger truly could have been his fairy grandfather. Niall tells Jason that he has been watching over him his whole life.  When Jason asks to prove this, he goes into many embarrassing personal things from Jason's life. Jason then asks why Niall didn't reveal himself before. Niall replies he was testing Jason and he failed miserably. He is not Warlow but if he had been Jason would surely be dead blabbing all his business to a stranger. If Jason wants a hand in killing Warlow he needs to get his head straight because he is clearly underestimating Warlow's strength.
 
In Fangtasia, Pam Swynford De Beaufort looks terrified as she holds Tara Thornton, who is screaming in pain on the bar. Pam has never seen anything like this before and seems scared for her progeny. As Eric and Nora enter the bar, they question Tara's screaming. Pam says that Tara has been shot and she isn't healing. Eric comes closer and takes a look at what looks like a burning hole in Tara's abdomen. Eric asks what caused it to which Pam replies the police and their new anti vampire weapons. Eric attempts to remove the bullet lodged in Tara's stomach but gets burned just by touching it. He then breaks a bottle and cuts the bullet out. Upon examination he realizes its a silver bullet with U.V light inside it. Tara heals immediately. Eric wonders where they got this technology when Nora brings up the fact that when in the authority they were warned about new weapons the government had created since learning of vampire's existence. Nora then realizes how humans are actually fighting back. Pam gets angry asking Nora what she'd expect after everything the authority did, like destroying the Tru Blood factories since Tru Blood was keeping the peace. They begin to argue when Eric shatters a glass and declares that if the humans want war, they will have war. He is not scared of humans and asks Nora to review the Book of Lilith again and find out what Bill may be. He leaves without letting anyone know where he was going.

Jessica Hamby is sleeping when she wakes to Bill's screams. She speeds down to the study where she finds Bill screaming hysterically. He screams out to the pain of vampires, which he can feel but can't help them. He gets visions of a vampire being whipped by silver chains, another being cornered and burned to death, and another being dragged behind a truck.  Bill collepses in a chair out of exhaustion when he gets a blank stare and no longer moves. In a vision he is brought to a meadow during day time being escorted by the the three blood covered sirens that morphed into him earlier. They take him to Lilith. She dismisses the sirens and tells Bill to listen carefully because they do not have much time since events have been set in motion.

Sookie wakes up to her phone ringing. She answers groggily to find Arlene on the line telling her she is scheduled for a shift today and she is already late. Sookie speaks vaguely after her rough night but tells Arlene she will be in as soon as possible.
As Arlene complains to Terry about Sookie's inability to ever come to work, Terry spots a familiar face when a pregnant woman walks into Merlotte's. He points her out to Arlene as Patrick's wife. Terry doesn't want to talk to her but Arlene insists. Terry reluctantly goes to her and almost spills the beans about Patrick's death. She however is convinced Patrick ran away with another woman. Terry almost tells her that Patrick is dead when Arlene steps in and tells Patrick did in fact run away with another woman. She tells his wife to move on and stay strong for her and her child hoping that will be the end of it.

Sookie is walking to work since her car isn't fixed yet, when she hears a scream from the woods. She stops for a second before continuing, telling herself that she has to go to work and she cannot be stopped by crazy drama today when she hears another scream from the same direction. She sighs deeply and runs over to see a handsome stranger behind a bush, who is clearly injured. She asks what happened. He replies he has been attacked by a vampire. She asks if he needs help or a hospital to which he says no. As she reads his mind he thinks "He smelt my damn blood" and Sookie probes further finding out that this man is a Halfling like Sookie. She says again he needs a hospital but he replies hospitals don't know what to do for fairies.  Having personal experience with this, decides to take him back to her house to help him clean his wounds. She asks him if he saw who attacked him. He says no but he got away by blasting him with a Photokinesis.
A group of teenagers enters Merlotte's. Arlene seats them finding out the majority of them are from L.A. Sam is behind the bar on the phone with Lafayette, who is currently in Sam's trailer watching Emma for him. One of the girls walks up to Sam and tells Sam that she knows what he is. Sam denies every knowledge. The woman says she is just there to help him and other shifters so he tells her to quiet down and come in the back with him. They go into Sam's office where the woman introduces herself as Nicole, co founder of the Vampire Unity Society. She tells Sam she wants to help him come out as a shifter to the world. Sam says no way, to which she brings up Governor Burrell declaring war on vampires and Sam says he doesn't care. She adds that he should care because shifters and all other Supes would be next and if all Supes came out publicly in a unified front, they could win. Sam still rejects her idea and states that he is hiding to protect himself. If they came out they would just be asking to be killed. Sam ends the conversation, to which Nicole hands him a card and leaves disappointed.
Jessica paces around Bill who is still in his trance. He is speaking with Lilith who is saying that a tyrant is rising. It is the beginning of the end and Bill must complete her work. He asks why him and Lilith says he proved himself worthy by winning the battle for her blood. He asks if he is God and Lilith replies no, he is not god just as she is not god. Some will come to worship him as a god just as they do Lilith herself, but there is no other 'god' but God. Bill asks Lilith what he is supposed to do when he gets pulled away from his trance for a few seconds because Jessica is slapping him in the face.
Jessica tells Bill that she has brought him something to eat, but he doesn't react. She walks into the main hall to a human woman from a blood donation service. They go into the room and the human sits in front of Bill. She looks into his eyes and speaks to him noticing the blood all down his face, as he doesn't react to her voice she stands up and begins to the leave the room saying Bill was out of commission when all the sudden the woman goes rigid. Jessica backs up and gasps as the woman's body twists in unspeakable ways and flies back towards Bill.  As she faces the chair Bill opens his mouth and siphons her blood through the air from her mouth. Jessica screams out in horror as Bill drains the woman before going comatose again.

Sookie is cleaning up the stranger she found injured while he sleeps. She wipes and bandages his wounds. When he wakes up, she accidentally touches his hand and a golden light trails her touch on his skin although neither of them know what it means. They get to know each other and find they both have the same outlook on the world being pretty bad when fairies are concerned right now. The man gets up and says he's going to leave when Sookie realizes she hadn't asked his name. He tells her his name is Ben and she tells him hers. She asks where he's headed and finds out he is pretty much a drifter and goes where the road takes him. Just as he is about to leave she tells him there is a safe place for fairies.
Andy Bellefleur shows up at Hot Wings with his four children who turned into toddlers over night. He screaming for Maurella to come out and take the babies because he doesn't know what to do.

Jason and [Niall Brigant|Niall], his fairy grandfather, enter Sookie's home looking for Sookie. Niall asks where Warlow appeared to Sookie before and Jason takes him to her bathroom. He uses his Photokinesis abilities to find the portal. He tells Jason he is going to find out if Warlow has escaped or not before jumping into a rift and disappearing. Jason tries to go through as well but hits the wall. As he looks around worried, Niall flies back through the portal on top of Jason, soaking wet. He looks at Jason and says that its worse than he thought.

Sookie walks Ben to Hot Wings and they get to know each other to pass the time. Sookie finds that Ben just moved to Bon Temps to finally put down some roots. He follows by asking if he could see Sookie again after this and maybe take her out. She awkwardly tells him she is not in the best place to be dating. As she thinks about just recently losing Bill, Ben overhears and asks her who Bill is. She completely closes up to Ben on the subject, telling him the rest of the way to the Fairy Club before leaving the other direction.
In Fangtasia Nora is reading the Book of Lilith when she finds a part of the book that may have been mistranslated. She tells Pam that Ginger came with a carton of blood. Pam points out that Eric doesn't tell Nora everything either apparently since they don't know where he is right now. Nora realizes she needs to leave to further investigate her theory and tells Pam to tell Eric that she will be back. Pam gets another attitude with Nora by telling Nora that Eric told her to fuck off so that's what she is doing. Surprisingly Nora attempts to make peace with Pam by telling her that she is the thing that Eric is most proud of and the only reason she didn't know about her was because Eric didn't want to risk Pam getting killed knowing it. She also added that she did know about Pam and that Eric talked of Pam often and fondly. Pam seems a little bitter still but seems softer towards Nora now.

Eric is standing outside Governor Burrell's mansion taking watch when he hears a human man walking down the street, stating he has a meeting with the governor at 5:30. Eric immediately attacks him.
Inside the mansion Willa Burrell is walking into her father's office who happens to be on the phone. She tells him that she wants to go out which he says no to. She lets Eric, who is disguised as the man who was actually supposed to have the meeting, into the Governors office. He pretends he is there for a bill about the extinction of the whooping crane. The Governor says he hasn't had time to look at his bill because of all this "vampire business". Eric continues to prod the governor becoming more and more rude as he speaks making it obvious he is no longer talking about whooping cranes. Burrell sits back behind his desk and tells him to cut to the chase when Eric jumps up and glamours him. He tells Burrell he needs to stop his persecution of vampires, he will reopen all vampire owned businesses and he now loves vampires. Burrell calls his guards and begins to laugh in Eric's face, who looks shocked. Burrell tells him that he has created contacts that protect humans from being glamoured. He tells Eric of some of the new ways they have learned to thwart vampires and tells his guards to take Eric to "Camp".

Sookie comes home to find Jason in her house and he introduces her to their fairy grandfather. They make dinner and sit down to eat. Niall tells them he is there to kill Warlow and has been tracking Warlow for a very long time. He also announces that Warlow has come back, but before they go after him he must let Sookie know everything. Niall's bloodlines are the first of all faeries and is considered as royalty, making Niall king of their tribe, Sookie a princess and Jason nothing since the gene skipped him. Warlow massacred Niall's village when he was a child and murdered his parents. Since then Niall has been tracking Warlow. He found him again when one of his sons was confronted by Warlow and forced to make the contract that gives Sookie away to him. Warlow showed up again years later on the night he killed Sookie and Jason's parents which was also the same night Claudine managed to blast him into a dark realm, where he had been ever since. There is a power passed down the bloodline through the generations and only their bloodline can use it, create an orb of light that can kill any vampire on touch and a light that's more powerful than the sun. Unfortunately for Sookie this ability is only a last resort. Using it would drain her light completely. Niall also teaches her how to make her magic go further from less.

Eric is outside the Governor's mansion, being escorted by the group of guards to a van. He asks them if they are going to read him his rights. They state he has none to which Eric replies "That's not very nice." He flies away from the scene, Leaving a dumb look on the guards faces.

Sam enters his trailer to Lafayette watching television and Emma sleeping on the couch. Lafayette asks Sam what kind of trouble he is in as they hear a car pull up fast. Sam comes out alone and sees Martha, Alcide and Danielle demanding to take Emma away from Sam. Sam says no because the last time he let Emma go with Martha, Russell Edgington got his hands on her and Luna gave her life to save her. Martha believes that Emma belongs with her because she is her grandmother. Alcide and Danielle both still seems jacked up from the vampire blood and get aggressive. Lafayette comes out and says that Emma wants to stay with Sam. Unknowingly the group is being photographed by Nicole and her group from the bushes. Emma runs out screaming for Sam trying to get to him when Martha intercepts her and takes her back to the car. Sam tries to punch Alcide but it barely phases him before he knocks Sam to the ground, at the same time Danielle uses her enhanced strenght to knock Lafayette down and punches him in the face. After beating them down with Emma screaming for Sam, the wolves drive away.
Willa Burrellis taking out her anti-glamouring contacts as she gets ready for bed. She realizes she needs to shut the window when Eric flies in and glamours her to let him into her room.

Jessica comes in the Compton house and puts up the shovels from burying the woman Bill drained. Bill's vacant state remains as Jessica comes into the study to check on him. She remembers a family member who was in a coma and was told they could still hear you when you speak to them. She decides to speak to Bill in the same manner. She confesses that she feels like the world is unraveling around her. She also admits she doesn't know what to believe anymore about the human or vampire bible. She then asks him if he is god. After thinking about it she gets down and looks at Bill and begins to pray. She thanks god for his forgiveness and to bless her friends, all of them, Jason, Sookie, Pam, Tara, Sam, Lafayette, Hoyt and even Eric but most importantly Bill. She confesses she needs Bill now more than ever and he is the only family she has. She cries blood tears and looks into Bills face to see his vacant stare yet again before giving up and walking to her room.

Bill is talking to Lilith and asks her how he will know what to do. Lilith tells him to trust what he knows and trust what he sees. When the time comes he will know exactly what to do. Lilith disappears and Bill snaps out of the coma. He stands, looking around confused when the television turns on by itself. The noise of the TV causes Jessica to run in thanking her lucky stars that Bill is back, but Bill is concerned about what is the on the television. It is a news report of a live video of a vampire being dragged by silver chains attached to a truck just as he had envisioned earlier. Jessica recalls his story and asks Bill if he can see the future. Bill says it as if he knows it is true when another vision hits him. It's of what looks like a gas chamber with Jessica, Tara, Eric, Pam, Nora and other vampires standing there looking around when the ceiling moves to reveal a U.V lamp that burns all vampires within the chamber. Bill gasps shocked and says breathlessly "They're all gonna burn."
