Meanwhile Eggs is freaking out with Tara Thornton at Merlotte’s because he’d blacked out again and couldn’t remember what he’d done with the past few hours, but he had a sinking feeling that it wasn’t anything good. Of course, we know he’s right.
When they go home to Sookie’s to talk things out, Maryann Forrester offers up some homemade hunter’s soufflé and tells them to dig in. We were cringing the whole time they chowed down because although Maryann kept the recipe a secret we knew she’d put a lot of heart into that pie…Daphne’s heart to be specific!
Yep, we finally found out what happened to Daphne after the last episode (and possibly what happened to Miss Jeannette). Sam Merlotte’s found her body sitting up in the freezer at Merlotte’s. Just as he’s about to call the cops about his little discovery, they come knocking at his door, what a coincidence. After some questioning Sam’s tossed in jail, but he’s surprised to see how many of his customers had also been locked up for committing crimes they can’t remember.
Back at Sookie’s, Eggs and Tara have finished their meal by the gruesome gourmet Maryann. Naturally, the maenad starts messing with their heads and the two engage in a pretty brutal form of foreplay. There’s nothing wrong with a little slap and tickle, but backhanding folks is not sexy.
But what’s up in Dallas? A large band of Vampires, including Bill, showed up to the Church just in time to save Eric and Sookie. Just as an ultimate showdown was shaping up, Godric came in to squash everything. After trying unsuccessfully to negotiate with Steve Newlin, the sire picks him up and asks the church’s soldiers, “How many of you are willing to die for one man’s madness?” Not a bad question.
Upon some momentary internal inventory all, Steve’s cadets left; as a parting shot, Jason told the disgraced pastor that he’d be sleeping with his wife.
The vampires and the Stackhouses reconvened at Godric’s home for a quiet celebration, but Lorena came to mess all that up by starting a catfight with Sookie. For a chick that got hit with a TV, she cleans up very nicely. After a verbal spat, Godric kicked Lorena out of his house and out of Texas. As Bill lead her away from the house an anymous figure entered the nest. And as the camera panned up to reveal that the new partygoer was one of Jason’s fellow campers, the man opened his coat to reveal a bomb.
With a cliffhanger like that, you know we’ll be watching next week to see if he goes off or if he’s just made a really bad fashion choice.
