'True Blood' recap: The Walking Dead

The battle has begun. Say what you want about King Bill, but after he made the tough call to have vampires who remained in Louisiana silver themselves during daylight hours -- and brought Sookie chains to use on Eric when he could have easily let him burn in post-coital bliss -- I think he's worthy of the crown and Sookie's trust.
