Some high profile characters are killed off during this episode – didn’t see that coming.

As Sookie is being drowned by her father in Lafayette’s body, Warlow shows up to save the day. Warlow saves Sookie and uses his light to blast her father’s spirit out of Lafayette. Sookie tells her father to leave her alone.

Experience the Fairy/Vampire Blend

Warlow is summoned back by Bill but Sookie says that she can take him to a place where he does not feel Bill’s pull. The two go to the fairy realm. As night falls, Warlow has Sookie tie him up to a statue as he does not want to hurt her because he hasn’t fed. Things get saucy and Sookie and Warlow end up drinking each others’ blood and having sex.

Back at the vampire torture camp, Pam and Eric team up and kill the guards in the room with them instead of fighting each other. Eric looks through the glass they broke on the window and sees that Steve is inside the observation room with Burrell and Sarah.

Punishment

Burrell punishes Eric for his misdeeds by bringing Nora into a room where they are both tied up and injecting her with a poison that kills vampires. He leaves Eric to watch Nora die. Eric summons Willa. Willa glamours a guard by ripping out his contacts and Willa, Eric, and Nora escape. Willa goes back to look for Jessica and Tara. Eric investigates a Tru Blood production lab he comes across disguised as a guard. He learns that Burrell’s Tru Blood factory is lacing every bottle of the blood with the same poison that is killing Nora.

Jason shows up at the LAVTF looking for a job. He quickly convinces a recruitment officer that he is a bigwig vampire killer. Jason is interviewing for a position at Burrell’s death camp when Sarah walks in. Jason and Sarah privately discuss how he is here to save Jessica and that Sarah better not get in his way or he will tell Burrell she cheated on him.

Sarah retaliates by making Jason watch Jessica attempt the copulation study.

Bill has Takashi drain his blood and force him into a comatose state so he can speak with Lilith. Lilith does not give Bill any answers and just tells him not to come see her again.

Sam and Nicole turn Emma back over to Martha and Alcide tells Sam to leave town and Sam agrees. It looks like we may lose Sam as a character.

Unfortunate Demise

Terry goes to Lafayette’s house and tries to give Lafayette his safety deposit box key. When Terry leaves, Lafayette calls Arlene and tells her what happened. They are both worried that Terry will kill himself, so Arlene enlists Holly’s friend to glamour Terry.

The vampire tells Terry that he doesn’t remember the military or the bad things he’s done. This doesn’t stop the fact that Terry hired a friend to kill him and Terry is shot and dies outside of Merlotte’s later that day. This is a hard loss because I felt pretty invested in Terry. He was a great guy and good character.

When Bill returns from speaking with Lilith, he drinks a vial of Warlow’s blood and ventures into the sunlight. He goes to Burrell’s camp to try and rescue Jessica. Burrell will not give up any information so Bill rips his head off.

Death number two is a gruesome one, but I am not sad to see Burrell get what he deserves. This does mean that Jason no longer carries leverage over Sarah though.

This episode really hit hard and felt like a season finale with all the deaths. This season really packs a punch.

5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)
