The scene opens with Alcide getting pulled by a werewolf. Russell Edgington goes up to Sookie and she uses her fairy powers to blast him back. Eric goes up to Russell ready to stake him. However, Bill stops him and tells Eric that if Russell dies, they die. The Authority comes in and takes over from there. Meanwhile at Fangtasia, Tara throws Jessica out of the bathroom and tells her that is what she gets when she comes into her house. Pam yanks Tara by her hair and takes her in the back. She tells her that she likes how she fought back there, but says that this is not Tara’s house, it is hers. She insults Tara by calling her a dog. At Keller’s, the fire comes out of the cellar and Terry tells Patrick that he was right. Patrick sees the Ifrit and they run away from it. ..
