Eric tried to elminate some competition for Sookie while glamouring Alcide.

July 15 – A battle royal breaks out in Russell Edgington’s chamber as his guard wolves pounce on Eric, Bill and Alcide. Russ tries to replenish his powers with a drink of Sookie’s fairy blood but is flung across the room by her potent light blast. One of the Authority’s chancellors arrives to stop the melee along with his goon squad. He agrees to let Bill and Eric glamour Sookie and Alcide to make them forget what transpired. Eric takes advantage and convinces Alcide that he’s repulsed by Sookie but Bill let’s Sookie remember and pretends to wipe her memory clean of not only the fight with Russ but their love. As a heartbroken Sook drives off with Alcide, the Authority chancellor rounds up the remaining grateful human survivors from Russ’s ghoulish food pantry and slaughters them to cover the Authority’s tracks. At Fangtasia, Tara makes Pam proud by standing up to Jessica in their bathroom brawl but Pam reminds her “daughter” that she’s no more than a well-trained dog. I think Tara may still be touched by Pam’s words. Hoyt is pretty pleased by the girl fight, which he takes as evidence that Jess still loves him. He offers himself to her any way she’ll have him. He just wants to be hers and hers alone. She doesn’t take him up on his offer. Stung by her renewed rejection, he takes up with a male vampire and doesn’t care when the feeding vamp warns him he’s close to death. Hoyt is “rescued” by the supes-hating goons who shot Sam and Luna when they drive up and destroy the vampire. The goons know Hoyt well. Will he be recruited to their cause? Sam and Luna survive their wounds and Emma’s grandmother brings her to visit them in the ER. Luna realizes she must let the wolf matriarch care for Emma while Sam tracks down the masked hoodlums with Andy’s help. When Sam and Andy visit an weapons store for vamp haters, the clerk recognizes Sam and tries to shoot Andy but Sam kills him with a crossbow first! At Sookie’s house, a huge Alcide looks hysterical waking up in Sook’s prissy pink bedroom. During breakfast, he doesn’t remember anything that went on the night before and recoils when Sook touches him, just as Eric wanted. Sook nevertheless breaks through to Alcide’s subconscious and unlocks his memories. Alcide is disgusted that Bill and Eric let Russell live and heads off to confront the werewolves from Marcus Bozeman’s pack who are in cahoots with Russ. When Alcide lays claim to the title of the pack’s new master, he’s challenged by the Alpha wolf who was insulted by Alcide’s initial rejection of the pack. Alcide now feels it’s his responsibility to set the pack straight and get them out from under Russell’s influence. He is backed up by the sexy she-wolf who hunted down Sam for killing Marcus at the start of the season. Will she be Sookie’s new competition for Alcide’s heart? At Merlotte’s Sookie joins Holly and Arlene in some commiserating about the folly of men. Sook thinks they’re only good for making trouble. She should know. Terry, who along with Patrick escaped the Ifrit (for now, anyway), tells Arlene about his curse by the Iraqi woman he executed and a disbelieving Arlene just tells him to go back on his meds. He insists he needs to leave her in order to keep her and the kids safe.

Jason and Sookie go back to Fairyland.

Jason shares his experience in Fairyland with Sook and she decides they need to go there to retrieve Hunter. When they meet up with Hadley and the male fairy who ran from Jessica at the women’s clothing store, the guy tells Sookie that a vampire had confronted her parents on a bridge and killed them because he was drawn to a bandage in the back seat of their car with the scent of Sookie’s blood. An enraged Sook light-blasts him and gets blasted back by some of the other fairies in a blinding display of ticked-off Tinker Bells! Lafayette visits his mom to check in after she has a seizure and learns that she also saw Jesus’ head. Jesus needs his help, she tells him. The question is where is Jesus and is his uncle involved in the visions Lafayette and Ruby are seeing? At the Authority’s headquarters, Bill and Eric are greeted as returning heroes by the chancellors who are proud of the guys’ ingenuity in apprehending crazy Russell. A buff Roman, his rippling muscles practically bursting out of a skintight polo shirt, is especially proud of the boys and even grants Eric’s request to get some alone time with Norah, who’s getting loonier by the minute with her Lilith worship. Roman gleefully plans for Russell’s execution but Salome acts a bit weird. Later, as the chancellors surround Russell trussed up in a stake harness, Roman’s remote control fails and Russ overpowers him and stakes him as a bloody tear streams down Salome’s cheek. Was she the one who betrayed the Authority? I for one will miss having Roman around. He was a bit talky, but he sure knew how to fill out a polo shirt.
