After the previous episode's set-up, we knew this week would feature Sookie and Bill going to Dallas to help Eric, but it turned out the purpose of the trip was not at all the focus of that storyline. Instead the trouble before the mission sure was! Finally Jason's Light of Day Institute experiences are starting to filter into the rest of the story as when Sookie, Bill, and Jessica arrived in Dallas, Sookie was almost kidnapped by the limo driver sent by Light of Day to "kidnap the human."
This incident gave Jessica her first chance at glamoring a human where she was supposed to stick to telling the driver everything was going to be fine, but instead turned into her messing with him and freaking him out more. Sorry, Bill, looks like this "parenting" is going to continue to be difficult and annoying.
But Bill's glamoring came through, leaving the driver believing his targeted human had never arrived on the plane, getting them temporarily out of the bind of the now clear-ish mission of Light of Day to get Sookie the vampire-lover into their camp, or whatever else they may want.
After all that, I'm very curious how and if Jason and Sookie are going to be colliding in probably a less than joyful family reunion way. With Jason now a "solider," which I'm pretty sure means vampire-killer, (and probably play thing after that excessive and hilarious scene at the minister's BBQ), my guess is we'll see Jason on a mysterious mission ending up to be either a vampire hunt, or a hunt for humans associating with vampires. Gee, how could that work out for Jason and Sookie to run into each other??
While Sookie was busy in Dallas almost getting kidnapped and discovering another mind reader at the Dallas hotel (exciting!!), she was also busy missing her bff's birthday party at her own house. And what a party it was.
Mary Ann pulled together a party for Tara at Sookie's house since Tara inconveniently moved out on her birthday, bringing a whole crowd of people in for what once again turned out to be crazy erotic dancing, then utter madness. While all this escalated, Mary Ann was off chanting in the yard, clearly increasing the madness of the party, including Tara having sex, everyone's eyes going black, and them gorging themselves on whatever food or drink they could get ahold of, including dirt. We were left with all that craziness hanging, with only the conclusion of Mary Ann's hands sprouting into the awful claws we've only seen so far via shadow and horrid back scratches.
So what on earth will happen next? Is Mary Ann some sort of devil who's intent is to cause sin and evil, then here and there make her evil mark on someone she then tracks and kills? Does she make those scratched under her power like Daphne seems to be, or is that just a stage? And if so, it seems Mary Ann is happy to share secrets with her minions, or whatever they may be, since Daphne told Sam she knew what he was. Now we'll see if she still knows that without Mary Ann controlling the whole party including Daphne.
So what do you think? (No spoilers from the books without spoiler alerts please!) What will happen if Sookie catches the other mind reader? What will happen if the Light of Day Institute catches Sookie? And what will be the aftermath of the Mary Ann monster-hands and crazy party?
