Tonight’s show opens with the remaining Authority members feasting on a dude with a tiny penis. The news clip that opened the show, showed the Tru Blood factory of fire.
The chick with the iStakes is talking with Eric about escaping the Authority headquarters after she’s denied clearance to a room in their building. Sookie and Lafayette are talking about his effort to reach the vampire in her bathroom. Lafayette has received 50 texts from Tara saying to stop texting her or she’d eat him. Then, he started hearing voices — one of which is Sookie’s gran. Gran is happy that the fairies are looking after Sookie. He delivers another message from Gran that says “you’re sleeping on top of it”. She pulls out a box of stuff from under the bed.
Jessica is being questioned about Hoyt being an “Obama”. She has had her blood and she can’t feel him at all anymore. She says if anything happens to him, it’s because of her. Sam and Luna are arguing about chasing the Obamas.
Meanwhile, Arlene is telling Terry not to do that with the killing thing. Terry tells her that she’s the only reason why he’s fighting at all and leaves to offer Patrick a fair fight.
We see new reports of the fire at the Tru Blood plant. Tara is trying to stockpile the Tru Blood, but Pam says to continue selling it so that vampires won’t eat their human customers. Tara offers her someone to talk to, but Pam declines saying that just because they drank someone together doesn’t mean that they’re Oprah and Gayle.
Eric tells Bill that he’s laying it on thick. Bill says that what if God is a vampire and they both saw Lilith. Eric says they were all high. They plan to leave tomorrow before dawn. Is Bill a good guy now or a bad guy?
Meanwhile at Sookie’s house, she and Lafayette are looking through the box trying to figure out what Gran was trying to show them. She finds a news clipping of Bud who found her parents’ bodies.
Jason tries to convince Jessica that he’s got the Hoyt thing covered and that’s what he’s been trained for. Deputy Kevin are talking about the hate group’s website. On the website, they see video of the supernatural haters baking vampires. They’re talking about who the Dragon is now and Jason goes to question the prisoner from the hospital about who the dragon is now.
We see a flashback of Alcide and Debbie younger, being lectured by his father, Jackson. Alcide chooses pack and gets marked with blood. Debbie follows suit and gets marked.
Sookie goes to ask Bud Dearborn some questions about her parents’ death. She’s reading his mind about what “he’s hiding”. She takes his hand and asked who Worlow is and he doesn’t know. She apologizes, but his new girlfriend pops Sookie over the head with a pan.
Andy is talking to the press about the vampires and supes outside of the town hall. Patrick grabs Arlene from behind and holds a gun to her head and takes her keys. He tells her to do exactly what he says and she can get back to her kids. He tells her to call Lafayette and tell him that Merlotte’s is closed for the day. She makes up something about Sam fixing the leak in the men’s room.
We see Sookie laying in a pen with pigs and Hoyt is also tied up there. Sookie tries to wake him up. She listens to Hoyt and he’s as high as a kite. She tests her powers and right afterward, an Obama comes in. Jason and Andy are talking with Kevin about the connection between the Obamas. They focus on the video which shows one of the Obamas wearing cowboy boots. They figure out that Bud is the Dragon and Sam and Luna are flies on the wall.
Bud goes into the pen where Sookie and Hoyt are being held. He tells her that somebody has to put an end to all of the vampires and supes. His girlfriend comes in and says that World War 4 is going to be fought here. She calls Sookie a supe and tells Bud that he can’t let his emotions run him. She is crazy! Sookie reads the girlfriend’s mind to find that she was rejected by her guy for a shifter. Bud feeds Sookie Oxycontin against her will. Meanwhile, Andy and Jason are rushing the place with guns.
They bust in and the place appears to be empty. There is squaredancing music playing. Jason finds a pictures of Bud’s wife on the mantel and then said her family owned a pig farm. He remembers what Sam said about pig crap.
Terry is outside of Merlotte’s and Patricki calls him to tell him to put his weapon down. Arlene screams in the background, but he hangs up. Terry walks in to find Patrick holding a gun to Arlene’s head. Patrick forces him to get on his knees and throws Arlene off to the side. Patrick says he’s sorry, but then Arlene stabs him in the ear with a pencil. They fight and Arlene grabs the gun and tells Patrick not to move or she will blow his brains out.
Eric tells Nora that she must be so peaceful to be so sure of something. He tells her that she’s not power hungry anymore and she tells him of how she dreamed of sitting in Roman’s chair one day. Salome let Nora taste the blood. He tells her that he doesn’t want to fight her and he wants to believe. They kiss.
Later, Salome is naked and Bill is in bed. She tells him that he’s been chosen as her other half and they will birth a new world together. They kiss and have sex. She imagines that Salome is Sookie and he’s draining her completely. Then, he sees Lilith and she’s on top of him.
Bud and the Obamas are watching Bud’s girlfriend and him putting on the Obama masks. They’re planning on feeding the supes to the pigs. They throw Sookie, but Sam is there and he catches her. He’s naked and kicking butt. On the outside, Jason and Andy bust in and tell the Obamas to freeze. Bud yells “humans rule” after trying to take a shovel to someone and Andy shoots him. The girlfriend runs off, but Luna shifts from a dog to herself to beat the crap out of the broad.
At Merlotte’s, Patrick is asking Terry not to shoot him. Arlene tells him to shoot Patrick, while Patrick tells him to do what’s right. The Iraqi woman appears to Terry and tells him to do what’s right. He shoots Patrick in the head. The woman says that blood has been paid with blood and tells the ifrit to take what it wants.
Meanwhile at Fangtasia, there is a run on True Blood. Pam sees a vampire feeding on a human in Eric’s chair. He tells Pam that the Authority has named him Sheriff of the Area and that the ban has been lifted on feeding on humans. He tells them to “grab a human, drinks are on me”.
Russell and Steve are talking about werewolves on V. Russell tells him to stick with him and that he’ll give him the world. They go into the wolfpack to see the new pack master of Shreveport, J.D. He feeds all of them his blood. Martha is there holding Emma. Russell offers Martha to join her pack and drink from him. She tells him that she will never feed from him. Russell goes up to her and quickly snatches up Emma. J.D. asks for Emma back, but Russell grabs him by the neck. Russell offers up Emma to Steve as a first pet.
Alcide is driving up to see his father in Jackson, Mississippi. He’s watching a race in a trailer in the middle of nowhere. Alcide tells his father that he lost pack master and that he’s been abjured.
