Pam has a little fun watching an enraged Tara attack Sookie and Lafayette. Although tempted to let Tara have her way with them, Pam commands her to not bite Sookie or Lafayette and orders her to stay in Sookie’s house. It’s anything but a day at the beach when the batty new vamp goes ballistic, tossing things around the house like a kid having a temper tantrum. When Lafayette cuts himself to feed Tara, Sookie overpowers her with a silver chain and the two put her in Eric’s tomb. Sook heads out to a vamp-hater’s store to stock up on items to vampire-proof the house. Later, Sookie intervenes when a remorseful Lafayette tries to stake Tara. Sook convinces him that Tara can get past the initial shock of her transition and live a full, happy life as a vampire. For now, however, Tara decides to the get the f**k out of there and speeds off in a rage! Things ain’t going too well for Bill and Eric, who have been tossed in the clink along with Norah by Salome, a dark-haired Vampire Authority figure who’s not to pleased with Norah’s betrayal. The trio are subjected to painful blasts of a UV radiation lamp to get them to confess to killing Nan Flanagan. Later, Bill and Eric are cross-examined separately about Nan’s murder and their interrogators inject them with liquid silver. So the Vampire Authority enjoys using torture tactics. Big surprise. The episode takes a strong religious undertone as Bill’s tormentor quotes scripture from the Vampire Bible, which puts a sanguine spin on creation theory by adding the mythical bloodsucker Lilith to the arrival of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. The vampire’s good book (or would that be bad book?) says humans were created as sustenance for vamps. Bill and Eric admirably stick to their stories despite the agony of the silver. Later, the boys are taken to meet Roman (Chris Meloni of Law & Order: SVU fame), the guardian of the Vampire Authority, who officiates over a vampire communion ceremony that’s sure to tickle folks at the Vatican. Roman, who looks like a studly Wall Street honcho (how appropriate for a bloodsucking creature), is royally ticked off. Nan may have been an annoying pain in the butt but she was an Authority official and killing her was a crime that merits the punishment of the real death. Bill manages to buy time by offering the head of Russell Edgington in return for their lives. A stunned Roman cannot believe the Bon Temps vamps were stupid enough to let Russ live considering how dangerous he was to The Authority, but agrees to spare them… for now at least. In a mysterious cell somewhere, a reptilian-looking Russell is racking up a growing pile of human body parts as he feeds to slowly regain his strength for round two with the gang. The question is who’s doing the food shopping for him?

Will Luna turn to Sam now that Emma has turned wolf?

In other Bon Temps news, Steve Newlin hits the airwaves as a new spokesperson for peaceful vampire-human relations but doesn’t reveal that the relations he really wants to have are of the carnal sort with the studly Jason. He brazenly crashes Jessica’s latest frat party and offers her $10,000 in exchange for young Stackhouse. Jess counters with an asking price of $20,000, teasing him with visions of Jason’s rock-hard butt …. and other parts. When Steve suggests $15,000 she taunts him and the two have a brief cat fight that he loses. Jess tosses Steve out but I’m sure it’s not the last we — or Jason — will see of the Velvet Vampire. Jason continues to try to make amends with Hoyt but only gets gratitude from Mrs. Fortenberry, who’s thrilled that her son is no longer with the redheaded vampire slut. Later, Jason and Andy find Debbie Pelt’s abandoned car and Andy resists the temptation to steal some V juice he finds in it. This development can’t be good for Sookie. Alcide separates himself completely from Marcus’s wolf pack, which by rights now belongs to him. The slap in the face isn’t received too well by the trashy lupines and is sure to haunt the musclebound lone wolf in episodes to come. Marcus’s mother begs Luna to let her have a presence in Emma’s life, but an enraged Luna casts her out and tosses Sam out, too, when he suggests that Luna may need a pack if she turns out to be a werewolf. Luna’s greatest fear comes to pass when Emma has her first transformation into an adorable wolf pup. Terry’s having flashbacks to his tour of duty and Arlene turns to Patrick to find out what’s bothering her man. Patrick and Terry decide it’s time to track down one of their Marine comrades who may have a grudge to settle with them. After finishing up with Tara (for the moment), Pam shows up at Fangtasia and leaves a message on Eric’s cell to remind him that he has a business to run. She’s still bruised by his rejection during the confrontation with the witch coven last season and she wistfully flashes back to 1905 when she was a mortal whorehouse madam who finds one of her working girls drained of blood. Walking in the street late at night in a scene straight out of a Jack the Ripper movie, Pam is rescued from an ill-fated street thug by a dapper Eric, who licks the dead guy’s blood from his manly fingers and speeds off. We’re finally going to see the sardonic Pam’s making story!
