<-- Previous EpisodeNext Episode -->
Sookie is in what seems to be a fairy type land. She runs into Barry the bellhop from Texas. They are offered light fruit and it looks like everyone is too into the fruit. Barry takes a bite and she is hesitant. She looks around and finds her Grandfather. He is confused, because he thinks he's only been gone for a couple of hours but really it has been twenty years. He had just seen her last week based on his time. She tells him about her grandmother passing and her parents, too. She tells him that it is just her and Jason now. He cannot wrap his head around the fact that it has been 20 years. She tries to speak to him telepathically, because she notices things are turning dark. She thinks that it is a trap and they need to leave. Everyone can hear it, though.
A woman comes out of nowhere. Her name is Mab and she is the one who sent for her. She says that the only trap is the other world. Sookie does not want the light fruit and smashes it. Mab tells her that their lineage is in peril. A vampire came to the other side, because he drank Sookie's blood. She tells her that it won't happen again. Mab says that the fae have sewn too many seeds with humans and now it is time to harvest. They try to force her to eat the fruit and she takes all of her power to get the woman away from her.
Sookie has somehow taken down some sort of cloak that makes the fairy world look beautiful and magical. The fairies all look ugly and decrepit. Everyone starts to run.
