The scene opens with Bill hearing a voice calling him. He goes to find that it is the blood of Lilith calling him. He ignores it, but Lilith appears and says that she chooses him to lead. She tells him to drink the blood. He turns away thinking his mind is playing tricks, but there are bloody finger prints on the glass. Nora is thinking of what Godrick said when Salome comes in. She tells her that she is worried about Russell and Salome says that this is all according to the plan of Lilith. She kisses Salome and says that she will let the others know. Jessica gets to Bill’s room and gets his phone. She says that they need to warn Jason. Bill forbids it and says that Sookie and Jason are food. Jessica says that she needs to make Jason a vampire and Bill says that he is not an idiot. Bill says that she is going to make Jason into a vampire, but she is going to have a security detail to make sure that she does it...
