He tells Alcide to always protect Sookie with his life (a little redundant, if you ask me.) He also jealously tells Alcide to keep his hands of Sookie – “she disgusts you a little bit.” HahahhahHAHAHAH. Best use of glamouring ever.
Black Authority marches off to chat with the trapped humans and Doug. And by chat, I mean eat. Uh oh… another council member going for the human noms? It’s not looking good for the guardian.
Bill and Eric get taken back to the Authority… alive for now. Bill continues to suck up on the religious front, while Eric’s view is “Lilith can fucking blow me.” The boys have a nice welcoming party back at the Authority palace. They get de-I-staked, and get to share 18th century Austrian hemophiliac blood with the Authority gang. The Guardian is realllll happy with the Russell capturing. He feels he can trust the boys now. Well, almost – he wants them to declare their loyalty first, which Bill does “wholeheartedly” and Eric resists… “There are some humans I have felt…protective… of, in the past.” The Guardian hits the nail on the head. “You are just too cool for school to admit you believe in something other then yourself.” He can’t wait to get his execution on with Russell.
Meanwhile, Eric insists on visiting Nora, and finally admits to the Guardian that they are vamp sibs. The Guardian seems surprised, but not that worried about it.
Shitty Terry storyline:
Their friend is burned up, Patrick is finally convinced, and the two surviving soldiers run like hell from the fire monster. Not sure how they beat a tower of flame, but the next time we see them it’s the next day and they’re driving away in safety. All of a sudden Terry leaps out of the moving car and runs off. Whaaa? Not sure if he thinks he has better chances alone, or if he’s pissed at Patrick for telling him to shoot the woman. “You ordered me to do something evil and wrong!” and its gonna kill him in the end. It’s the latter. “I knew it was too good to be true. Arlene. The kids. Mikey. I just ain’t the type of guy who gets to have something like that. Not for long anyway.” Oh. Really sad, and it gets worse:
Terry finally returns to Merlotte’s to see Arlene.
Is it just me or does he look extra adorable in this scene?
He tells her about the fire curse. She’s surprisingly incredulous. Really Arlene? After all this (the ghost? vampires? werewolves? sex goddesses?) you don’t believe in curses? REALLY? Terry tells the whole Iraq story, and Arlene just tells him to get back on his meds. True, she does have three kids to take care of.
Terry: “If I stay with you, you will die. And so will the kids.”
Arlene: “Then you need to go.” Well, that actually is a reasonable response. As Terry leaves, he says “Thank you. Thank you for taking a chance on me. I wish it would’ve turned out better.” OMGG so sad. This is a dumb storyline, but maybe with Terry leaving it will tie into something else in the show – Arlene in danger? Terry running into a different kind of trouble? I love both Terry and Arlene, and just wish they were more connected to the other storylines.
