Storyline

Tara is having more than a little difficulty accommodating herself to being a vampire. Sookie takes special measures but Lafayette is at his wits end. Reverend Newlin visits Jessica in the hopes that she will let him go after Jason. Terry Bellefleur continues to walk in his sleep and display violent reactions to the simplest things. Arlene has just about had it. Jason tries to make peace with Hoyt Fortenberry but he won't have anything to with him. Alcide takes responsibility for killing the pack leader but refuses to take on the leadership himself. Luna has something of a surprise at home. Eric and Bill are imprisoned at the Authority headquarters. They are tortured and questioned but neither of them will break. It appears they will both be killed but Bill has a proposition for them.

Trivia

The language the authority vampires are speaking at the end of the episode does not correspond to any single language. Most of the chant is derived from ancient Hebraic dialects (such as Aramaic). However, certain words (e.g., "nama(n)" for name) are not semitic but Indo-European, and were probably taken from Sanskrit, although it is difficult in some instances to say with certainty. The phonological similarities between the few words which do not correspond to anything in Hebrew are not necessarily unique to a single ancient Indo-European language. The word for "name" could be Sanskrit or be taken from certain Germanic languages such as Gothic. Other words, such as the word for "eternal", are either Sanskrit or are corruptions of Indo-European or Semitic words. See more »
