Sam goes outside to throw trash out and hears both Tara and Sookie screaming. He runs towards them and they are still at the car with the Detective. They tell Sam that there is someone dead inside. The detective tells them to step back so he can see who it is. Tara is worried that that is Lafayette, but it isn't. It turns out that it is the woman who did the fake exorcisms to Tara and her mother. The detective checks for a pulse, but when he lifts what is covering the body he realizes that someone ripped her heart out. Tara realizes who it is and screams. The rest of the cops show up and Sookie is listening on everyone's thoughts. Tara is worried that the police will figure out that she knew who the woman was and Sookie hears her thinking about how she went and pushed her at the store where she works. The officer asks her if she is not telling her something and Tara tells her no. The detective tells the sheriff that the woman is in full on rigor mortis. He wants to work and the sheriff tells him he should go home because he is overworked and drunk. The detective tells him in a shocked tone that he is not overworked! ..

Episode Quotes
Maryann: I’ve always wondered what it would be like to gaze into the eyes of someone so devoid of human compassion, who would abandon her own child when she needed her most.

Tara’s mom: What?

Maryann: Hmm... Just as I thought. Emptiness, nothing inside. It’s always something out there that gets all the blame or all the credit, whether it’s Jesus or Gin.

What I can’t believe is that your daughter still manages to feel anything for you at all, since you’ve abused, neglected, betrayed and forsaken her love since the moment she could feel. That’s extraordinary. She’s a hell of a girl
