Goof--Eric says that he hasn't seen his maker (Godric) in well over 70 years. However, in the Season 3 premiere, we see him and Godric together during World War II.
Allusion--Hard-Hearted Hannah: The title of the episode is also the title of the song that Bill sings in the first flashback scene. The song was first published in 1924 and has been sung by many performers such as the Ray Charles Singers, Ella Fitzgerald and Nancy Sinatra.
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.
