Another killing in Bon Temps finds Jason back in custody with officers Andy and Bud. Tara gets him off the hook, but neither she nor Lafayette has the antidote to his current ailment.

Urged by Gran to use her telepathic abilities to weed out the murderer and exonerate her brother, Sookie persuades Bill to take her to a Shreveport vampire bar called Fangtasia, where she impresses a dominant Nordic bloodsucker named Eric with her prescient powers. Later, Bill demonstrates his own considerable powers when an abusive patrolman stops the couple on their way home.

Goof--The "Young Jason" has blue eyes while the the adult Jason has brown eyes. However, the scene is when Tara flashes back to when she was a child running away from her mother and seeking sanctuary with Sookie and her grandmother so it is possible that this is an indication of how Tara remembers the scene rather than being presented as an accurate version of what Jason was like.

Trivia--When Bill says that puns used to be the highest form of humor he is referring to a similar statement made by Alfred Hitchcock in a 1972 interview.


In the near future, thanks to the Japanese invention of synthetic blood, vampires have "come out of the coffin" and are trying to peacefully co-exist with humanity. When a vampire moves into the small Louisiana town of Bon Temps, the tolerance of the locals is put to the test. Local waitress Sookie Stackhouse, unusual in her own right because she can read minds, finds herself drawn to the stranger whose mind is hidden from her.
