In a field, Luna tells Tim to take her daughter and go. Military vampires find her corpse and check to make sure she is truly dead.
Back at the factory complex, the structure captures fire and Jason tries to go back for Sookie but Nora stops him. She tells him if she says move he needs to move. About that time Eric and Sookie pull up in a truck and the group piles in. They all start to drive away as they see Super-Vampire Bill walk out. Jessica can’t believe her eyes. Eric steps on the gas and drives them away as Bill heads into the sky. The group debates what they say.

Back in the truck, Jason says it’s about time they started putting rules on vampires. Sookie tells him to shut up. Pam and Nora start to bicker and Eric pulls the truck to a screeching halt. He says he and Nora need to talk privately. Pam gets out and rounds on him asking who Nora is. He replies it’s his sister. She accuses him of lying to her over and over again when all she does is share his life. He tells her to either have his back or get out of his face. Once alone Eric and Nora discuss Lillith and the possibility that Bill is her resurrection. Nora says there was no mention of a resurrection in the book. She says she spent her life devoted to that book so she would know. Down on the beach, an upset Pam is comforted by Tara. Further down, Jessica washes her face in the water. She turns back to see Sookie approaching. She asks Sookie if she still loves Bill. Sookie says he was her first and loving him is in her blood. Sookie tries to tell her that the Bill they know is dead.
Nora walks over to Jason. She asks about Worlow and Jason refuses to tell her so she compels him to. He tells her that Warlow is a vampire that killed his parents. As Eric walks up, Nora breaks contact and Jason pulls his gun. He threatens Nora and Eric extends his fangs in response. Jessica, Sookie, Pam, and Tara hurry to the scene. Eric tells Sookie that the only reason Jason is alive is as a courtesy to her. Sookie tells him to put the gun down and an argument insues between the siblings because of Sookie’s continuing habit of taking a vampire’s side. Jason says the vampires killed their parents and Sookie argues it was Warlow, not them. Jason tells her if that’s the way she feels she is just as dead to him as their parents are.
Jessica turns suddenly and heads in the opposite direction. She explains that Bill is summoning her. Sookie yells out demanding that someone stop her and Eric does so. Jessica begins to vomit blood profusely and fall to the ground, her heart almost coming out of her chest. Then and there they decide they have to get her to him or she will die. Sookie says she is taking her with or without him and Eric steps out of her way. Tara tries to follow but Eric yanks her back by her ponytail telling her to take Pam back to her bar.

Having arrived at Bill’s, Jessica and Sookie follow a set of bloody footprints out onto the deck. Bill is there in a chair. He says he wants to talk. From out of nowhere, Nora tries to jump him and Bill throws her against the railing. Eric, with stake in hand is pinned quickly against a support beam. Sookie, taking the stake she had in her hand, rams the wood through his heart only to watch him pull it out. He calmly requests again if they can talk. Bill says that the man who hurt Jessica is gone. Sookie says he is right, Bill Compton is gone. Jessica moves to his side and tells Sookie to get out. Bill reinforces this with a small earth shake.
