This makes Eric angry and in what seems to be emotional agony. Sookie is running through the woods and finds a light that looks like a chandelier. It turns out that this is a dream. Bill is waking her up and she gets up pretty angry. She smacks him and yells at him for betraying her again. He tells her that he only betrayed her (again) so that he could save her life (again). He says that it worked and that Russell is gone. She asks where Eric is and his progeny says that he is outside burning with Russell. ..
