Chancellor Akinijide said the wrong thing at the wrong time to a Lilith-obsessed Bill.

August 19 – Things start to unravel for both the Authority and the fairies in the penultimate episode of the season and the body count is rising fast. Russell’s defection has left the chancellors in a prickly mood as Lilith starts to play some dangerous mind games. Bill hears a woman’s voice beckon to him and sees a blood-soaked Lilith tell him she chose him to lead the Authority and demands he drink all her blood that’s left in the glass flask. Bill gets a major vampire boner at the mere thought of drinking it but manages to restrain himself. He’s still fully submerged in the Sanguinista cult, however, as Jessica learns when Bill catches her trying to escape. When she lies that she wants to turn Jason, he calls her bluff and sends her to accomplish her mission accompanied by two Authority goons. When they catch up with Jason, Jessica fakes feeding on him which distracts the guards long enough to give Jason the chance to blow them away with silver bullets. Jess warns Jason that Bill and Eric have been brainwashed by the Authority and Jason heads off to warn Sookie in Fairyland. Jess hides out at Fangtasia, where she fills Pam in on Eric’s whereabouts. Pam reveals that Bill and Eric are exhibiting the signs of nesting, a phenomenon where vamps become homicidal after spending long periods in a cult. Jess and Tara’s attempt to renew their tenuous friendship is interrupted by the arrival of Roslyn, who is searching for the killer of her progeny Elijah. Pam confesses to being the culprit to protect Tara and is hauled away by Roslyn’s enforcers. On her way out, Roz catches Jessica and brings Bill’s wayward kid back to Authority headquarters. Unbeknownst to the chancellors, their ranks are being undermined by Lilith and Norah, who is brought back to the side of the good guys by recurring visions of Godric’s destruction at Lilith’s hands — and a helpful roll in the hay with Eric. When a human general shows up demanding to see Roman, the chancellors inform him they’ve gone Sanguinista and he counters that a video of Russell and Steve slaughtering members of a fraternity will be leaked to the press if anything happens to him. Eric sees an opportunity to knock the chancellors off-balance by killing the general. In the ensuing panic, he and Norah escape to plot their next move as fugitives from the Authority. Bill comes across chancellor Akinijide worshiping Lilith’s blood and destroys him in a rage when Kibwe says Lilith chose him to lead the Sanguinista movement. It appears Lil is pitting the chancellors against each other and also goes to Salome with her “you’re the one” act. The inevitable confrontation between Bill and Salome will surely be a good one to behold.

Can Andy and Holly overcome the fact that he’s got a half-fairy love child on the way?

In non-vampire news, Arlene and Terry are blissful in the wake of the whole Ifrit mess and give Andy relationship advice just in time for Andy’s one-night-fairy-stand Maurella to show up preggers and demanding he do right by her. Maurella’s petrified of Russell’s fairy hunt and wants a big strong human cop to protect her. A shirtless Alcide, his chiseled muscles glistening in the sunlight, is staying at his embittered wolf dad’s farm when a fellow werewolf shows up to warn them about bands of recently turned vamps who are attacking livestock. When Alcide takes off after a group of vampires on the hunt, his dad pitches in and helps him fend off the bloodsuckers with a crossbow. There may be hope for Papa Hervaux after all. Sam and Luna find Emma, locked in her adorable wolf pup form, in a holding pen full of caged naked humans waiting to be served as meals to the Authority. When guards capture them, Sam volunteers to be taken to Bill as his next meal, leaving Luna behind to figure out how to bust Emma out. In Fairyland, Sookie gets an audience with the music-obsessed Elder fairy (played by Erica Gimple of the TV series Fame in a kooky performance). The Elder knew Sook’s great-great-grandfather and is about to tell her something juicy about M. Warlow when Jason arrives to warn Sookie about Russ. The Elder is not pleased to hear that Russell’s still alive. Sookie convinces the fairies that they need to take a stand and combine their light powers against Russell’s inevitable attack. Jason and Sookie cook up a plan for Jason to lure Russell into the line of fire. When the moment of truth arrives, the Elder decides to take on Russ and Steve alone. She easily flings Steve across the field with her power but a cagey Russell deflects her next spell using Jason as a shield and manages to sink his fangs into her, draining her instantly. Supercharged on the Elder’s potent blood, Russ is able to see into the fairies’ dimension and feasts his eyes on the delightful sight of fairies galore. Dinner is served!  Next up: the season finale of True Blood!

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!
