Storyline

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

Quotes

Eric Northman: You killed a vampire, Bill. For a human. What are we gonna do about this?
Bill Compton: What do you have in mind?
Eric Northman: I'll take the girl.
Bill Compton: No!
[long pause]
Bill Compton: You can have anyone you want. Why do you want her?
Eric Northman: Why do *you* want her? You're not in love with her, are you?
Bill Compton: [incensed] Sookie must be protected.
Eric Northman: Now, that sounds like an edict. But it couldn't be, because I would know about that. Admit it. You love her.
Bill Compton: If I hadn't done what I did, would you have let his disloyalty stand?

There's vampire in your cleavage.
2 November 2008 | by lastliberalSee all my reviews

This show just keeps getting better and better, and tonight's episode was the best yet.

Bill is in big trouble after killing another vampire. He thought he might get away with it, but off he goes to face a tribunal. he asked Sam to keep an eye on Sookie, and we find out something new about him. Yes, I guessed it, but it was still exciting.

Eddie is wasting away, but he and Jason had a really great talk about manhood. He also warned him about Amy (Lizzy Caplan). Now, what is that girl up to? Tara is finally going to get rid of her demons. With what Sookie now knows about Sam, how will the new Tara and Sam play out. Damn, that is going to be fascinating.

I really can't wait until next week as it is getting so exciting.
