SINGLE LADY Sookie (Anna Paquin) was saved from marrying Warlow. She's currently dating Alcide. Win-win.
Back at Bill’s, Violet and Jason played volleyball opposite Jessica and James, and Violet hit Jessica in the face with the ball. Very mature, Violet. But also fun. It was great to see the vamps in their summer clothes. Everyone was in a good mood but Pam, whose buzz had worn off. She realized she missed Eric. She told Tara she was going after him, and off she flew in her leisure wear (which was way better than her Wal-Mart sweatsuit). Tara wasn't happy, obviously: "You guys are the worst f---in’ makers ever," she said.
Bill was in his office mourning the loss of his powers and Sookie's humanity. He couldn’t feel Lilith anymore -- hooray -- he felt like Bill. He told Jessica about the deal Sookie had to make with Warlow, that she was going to be made vampire. Jessica reminded him that Bill would walk through fire to save Sookie, and he had to try to make it right -- even if he’s unsure she could ever forgive him or if there was even time.
Bill and Jessica told Jason about Sookie, and he refused to believe that she would agree to marry the vampire who killed their parents. Jason was ready to kill Bill but right there, but he had to save Sookie. Bill told them all about the portal and that the only way to access it would be with Adilyn’s light. Jason said he’d go to Andy alone to ask for her help, but Violet said he’d never be alone again. Ah. Am I going to like her?
Bill set Takahashi free in the woods with a bag of money and glamoured his whereabouts from his memory. That was nice of Bill, but was it safe with the Hep V vamps on the loose? Andy, meanwhile, wouldn’t invite Violet into his home, even after she said she only feeds on Jason because they’re monogamous. But Jason convinced Adilyn to help save Sookie. Adilyn knows what it's like to lose a sister (or three), and Sookie is the only other fae she knows. Andy gave in: "Let’s do this s---, then. But we’re goin’ in heavy." Rambo it up, boys.
Warlow had Sookie tied to the maypole now and she threatened to throw her fairy light away. He wanted her to rebuild the joyous fairy tribe he'd killed off, so that was her only play. He just tied her hands above her head so she couldn't form her ball again. "You really are a danger whore, aren’t you?" he said. He told her she should have trusted her instincts: It turns out he does just want to f--- her, and own her, and use her for her blood. He smiled. Why? Night had fallen. He bit her neck.
