In Dallas, Sookie connects with one of her own, then joins Bill and Eric for a strategic summit at the lair of the missing vampire, Godric (Allan Hyde), attended by his lieutenants, Stan (Ed Quinn) and Isabel (Valerie Cruz).  Meanwhile, Jason shows his mettle at a Light of Day boot camp, and is rewarded for his hard work with a gift from Sarah (Anna Camp).  Rebuffed by Tara in her relocation efforts, Maryann decides to cast her spell on the staff of Merlotte’s, softening Tara up towards her new “family.”  Eric shares a little-known secret about his past with Bill, and Sookie makes a decision that might solve the Godric mystery – or get her killed.

  • No, I haven’t read the books either, but I really want to. I will have to buy the books. From what I’ve gathered from internets readings, her character was in the books, but was by another name. Calisto, I think, a maenad. I can’t shed any light on how long she sticks around, or if she gets defeated in the books. Alan Ball has put his own spin on the TV Series though, so anything is possible. I so do love this series and the version they are telling, so we will have to continue to tune in and see. But I do hope she gets it!

    Hope someone stops her, i hate watching her… I have not read the books, will this story line follow the books. If so what do the books say?

  • Maryann’s character is truly something else. She is causing so much Hell in Bon Temps that is it ridiculous, and from the looks of it in the coming trailers, no one can stop her. What is her obsession with Sam??? Is it because he got away, and she can’t control him? Well I say just let it (him) go then. Whatever her god is, it seems to be a very jealous god if it can’t let Sam go. I hope someone really gives it to her in the coming weeks. She is really asking for it. Bill says he can’t stop her, and I wonder why. Her and her god must be older than vamps, and have powers that exceed what the vamps can do or who even dream of doing. Someone has to get the best of her, and they can just forget it. She’ll kill the whole darn town.
