They come up with a genius plan: follow Steve Newlin to his TV appearance (with Sam’s surprise secret frequent flyer miles) and sneak in to the studio as mice. God, little animals are so killable and it really scares me when they shift into them! I felt the same way when I used to read the Animorphs books! Unfortunately, Steve didn’t bring Emma with him, so they have to stow away in his bag.
When Steve gets back to the Authority, he finds that Emma is in human form again.
“Emma, you know that daddy doesn’t like it when you’re human!” He really treats her like a dog, which is both hilarious and horrifying.
After abandoning his offspring for so long, Bill finally sends for Jessica with his Authority guards. She is fa-reakked out.
Bill gives her a little Authority tour. She’s clearly overwhelmed by his swift transformation into a vampire evangelist. Oooh poor Jessica! She thought she escaped Bible Studies when she got vampired. Bill sends her off to read and study and find Lilith and stuff. K…
actually scarier when happy.
Russell is increasingly bored with the Authority’s strategies – education reform, political machinations, conspiracy. He wants to harness the blood of the faerie – to study and breed them and make vampires into daywalkers. Salome disagrees. Lilith made them a certain way, and they need to stay that way.
Russell illustrates his disagreement by throwing Salome across the room and threatening to kill all of them. Also, he reverts to his three thousand year old accent for some reason. Bill and Eric share a special look which means “uh oh.. Sookie!” and Jessica looks just plain terrified. He escapes from the Authority, and goes off to seek the daylight. I wonder what this means for Steve and Emma??
Sookie’s at home rocking the dumpy single woman look and some Chinese takeout (I’m not hating, I’m recognizing!) when there’s a knock at the door. It’s coroner Mike. Sookie lets him in right away. She’s clearly too trusting in the midst of the vampire crisis, cause coroner Mike turns out to be vampire Mike and goes right for Sookie’s thigh.
I’m not sure whether this is just a longtime crush coming to fruition, or word on Sookie’s magic fairy blood/vagina is spreading among the vamps. Anyway, Sookie stakes him with some handy chopsticks, which makes for a cool scene but is totally unrealistic. No way those crappy chopsticks would go halfway through a body without breaking, unless vamp bodies are way squishier than I ever knew, in which case, gross.. The Buffy pencil incident was much more realistic.
and convenient, since those guys turned into dust, not guts.
