Chancellor Dieter Braun lost his head over the whole drinking Lilith’s blood thing.

July 22 – The Authority’s goons subdue the rampaging Russell with a net made of silver after he staked poor Roman. Salome finally confesses to digging up Russell in order to sic him on Roman and steal his position as the Authority’s guardian. She’s in cahoots with Norah as sanguinistas who will democratize the vampire power base among all vamps to live in servitude to Lilith as the vampire bible dictates. Eric is livid with Norah and can’t believe he fell for her act. Salome frees Russell, who claims to be now serving Lilith. When Salome offers the chancellors Lilith’s blood to drink Dieter Braun cries blasphemy and gets beheaded by Russ. The chancellors, along with Bill and Eric, get royally smashed on Lilith’s potent brand of V juice and walk the streets of New Orleans in a drunken stupor. Crashing a pre-wedding party, the vamps turn the humans’ festivities into a blood-soaked feeding frenzy, stopping momentarily to witness the curvaceous nude form of Lilith emerge from a floating drop of blood. The vampire queen directs them to continue their gorging but Eric is stopped by the spirit of Godric, who tells him what they’re doing is wrong. Will Eric rise up against Lilith’s will? Alcide is determined to beat alpha male J.D. for control of the wolf pack without using V to even the playing field as his new she-wolf friend Rikki suggests. A frisky Alcide and Rikki’s fight workout morphs into a sexy wrestling match which Martha interrupts. She won’t believe J.D. is on V but later catches him trying to feed it to Emma. In fairyland, the fairies revive Sookie and reveal they blasted her to test her luminescence, which is finite and will be depleted as she uses her powers. The prospect of being powerless is not unappealing to Sook, however. During a visit to the hospital to visit Luna, Sook ponders with Sam how living as a human again would be safer. She may have a point, the hate thugs are thirsting for revenge against Sam for killing one of their group as Sam discovers when he catches one of them lurking around the hospital. Worse yet, they’ve convinced Hoyt that his place is with them. Meanwhile, family issues bedevil Tara and Lafayette. Tara’s mother interrupts her daughter’s super-powered pole dance at Fangtasia to tell her she’s disowning her. Tara makes a veiled threat in return but is devastated by her mom’s rejection nonetheless. Pam, who is genuinely proud of Tara’s erotic dancing skills, comforts her progeny briefly, promising she’ll totally forget her human mother in 100 years. Lafayette tracks down Jesus’ uncle Don Bartolo and is caught in the brujo’s trap. Tying up Lafayette and suturing his mouth shut like Jesus, Don Bartolo plans to transfer Lafayette’s brujo mojo, which he believes Lafayette doesn’t deserve, into the unborn child his wife is carrying. Luckily for Lafayette, the wife isn’t on board with the game plan and stabs Bartolo to death then frees Lafayette.

Jessica’s not smiling after her tiff with Jason. Will she be the hate group’s next target?

The boring Ifrit story limps along as Arlene is comforted by Holly, who reminds her friend that they’ve seen enough crazy stuff to warrant giving Terry the benefit of the doubt. The Ifrit continues to toy with Patrick and Terry, biding its time before making a final attack. Yawn. Far more juicy is Jason’s encounter with Jess after he interrupts her feeding session on a hunky fangbanger. Jason insults Jess and she instinctively bites him so he shoots her in the head. Although the gunshot wound heals immediately, the wound to Jess’ heart proves deeper and she banishes Jason from her mansion as her guards pounce to protect her. Jason is distracted from his fight with Jessica by a blinding light show caused by Sookie unleashing a torrent of light blasts into the sky to deplete her powers. Will Sook go back to being just a waitress again?
