    Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten - Tru Calling ) is a prisoner ... in the female vamp section. Luckily he has friends there - Jessica ( Deborah Ann Woll ), Tara ( Rutina Wesley ) and Pam.

    This starts in the aftermath of the Hep-V vamp attack, ending the cliffhanger from last Season. It turns out that the town lost a major character, and since this is widely advertised to be the final Season it is only the first big death.

    The Hep Vamps have abducted some local humans. Deputy Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten - Tru Calling ) and his Vamp GF go looking for them, as do Sheriff Andy and King Bill. Strangely, the local vigilantes manage to get around much faster than the cops do.

    The human locals are now anti-vamp fanatics, and they blame Sookie ( Anna Paquin ) for it all. Yes, they are happy to listen to advice from King Bill, but not to tolerate his ex being around.

    Jessica ( Deborah Ann Woll ) stands guard at Sheriff Andy’s house. Andy’s niece is besieged by a Hep-Vamp, but if Jessica is still on guard at sunrise she will burn.

    Pam is in North Africa, looking for Erik Northman (Alexander Skarsgard - Legend of Tarzan ).

    Shown 29/Jun/14

    This starts with an encounter between Erik Northman (Alexander Skarsgard - Legend of Tarzan ) and Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten - Tru Calling ). It is memorable, to say the least, but also quite confusing on several levels.

    Sookie ( Anna Paquin ) guides a rescue team to save the kidnap victims. They discover a town that the Hep-Vamps hit. She reads the diary of one of the victims, who fell in love with a vamp several years previously, and has a flashback to the first time she met Bill Compton.

    Arlene and a couple of others are held in the larder by the Hep Vamps. The humans recognise one of them as a local schoolteacher. Can they talk her into showing mercy?

    Back in town, the clean-up is halted by the failed Mayoral candidate. Last ep he had a handful of vigilantes to back him up, but now he gets the whole town on his side. They do not have any guns of their own, despite being rednecks, try to loot the guns from the police station. Just like in Season Two, when Mary-Anne took over, the locals all go crazy when the main characters are out of town!

    Since this ep takes place in the daytime, King Bill and all the local vamps are asleep. Except Jessica ( Deborah Ann Woll ), who is telepathically linked to Andy's daughter ... and Pam, who is in Europe looking for Erik.

Erik’s devil-may-care attitude gained him some powerful enemies, as he learns to a painful cost.

    Everything is set for a big climactic battle against the Hep-Vamps. Sookie and the good humans team up with King Bill and the good vamps. This is not a particularly group, but they have Erik and the element of surprise.

    King Bill starts to flash back to his pre-vamp days, helping the Underground Railroad and generally undermining the Confederacy. Ironic, since he was a soldier on the Confederacy when he was embraced. Also, unlike Lost his flashbacks have no relevance to the main storyline.

    Erik Northman (Alexander Skarsgard - Legend of Tarzan ) and Pam go to Dallas to hunt the woman who created Hep V. They go undercover at a Republican convention. Unfortunately, the Yakuza are still after her and they are a lot less subtle than the vamps.
