What an episode Sookie gets so used and abused by vampires that she wants nothing more to do with them in the next series,(lol they want loads to do with her though)leaving her free and single.
Eric starts his plan to give Russell his "final death" .. He drains Sookie and uses her blood to make himself a daywalker.. Construction site..concrete...no more Russell....Great!
This shows Eric Northman as a super baddie again (more supprising when he shows his loving side later) but i believe he does it not only to get revenge but to save Sookie from Bill, Russell and The queen. Also he has just solidified his bond with Sookie (making way for their relationship in season 4 Ahhh!)
If anyone is interested Jason integration into Hot Shot begins with him telling Hot Shot residents about an imminent drugs raid. This paves the way for our cute panther Jason and his wife Crystal Norris Stackhouse to live in marital bliss for a couple of days.lol
