Recap: 'True Blood' Premiere - 'She's Not There'

As we open this new season, we learn that the mystery brunette in Sookie’s fantasy land is her -- no joke -- Fairy Godmother. Barry the Bellboy also is in fantasy land, has his own fairy godmother too. Name’s Lloyd; great accessories. Anyway, Barry and Sookie are in a beautiful garden.
