The scene opens with the member of the group killing Shifters and other Sups getting escorted in handcuffs. He tells Sam that there are thousands of them. Sam goes to see Luna upset about the guy going to jail only. He tells her that he has it covered and says that a Deputy is posted outside her door to protect her. She gets angry about it after he leaves and stands up out of bed. However, when she looks in the mirror, she figures out that she has a new power and that she can shift into a person. She accidentally shifts into Sam and passes out. Meanwhile, the Vampires from the Authority, Bill, Russell, Nora, Salome and Eric get back and Eric looks around at everyone. He tells Bill that they were high and that they really didn’t see Lilith. However, he is too high to realize anything and tells him that they were in the presence of God. ..

Episode Quotes
Pamela:(while glaring a human) You are worthless, your only purpose is to serve Tara Thornton. You will worship Tara, everything about her is a revelation. You exist only for Tara's nourishment. You'd consider it a privilege to let your racist perkerwood blood shoot into her gorgeous cocoa mouth. You are an unpaid food whore, a slave and Tara is your master.

Pamela: (to Tara) Don’t you get uppity with me

Lafayette: (To Arlene and Holly) Hooka, I ain’t in the helping bidness no more. I’m in the fuck off while I smoke a blunt bidness and business about to take away the fuck up

(on seeing Lilith)
Russell: God has the most beautiful tits I’ve ever seen
