Sookie has just walked in and found Dawn dead in her bed. When she steps back Jason shows up. He sees Dawn dead and drops the vase of flowers that he had just brought to her. Dawn's neighbor comes over when she hears Sookie yelling and starts to blame Jason. She asks Jason what he did. Sookie tells her that she was the one who found her but the neighbor tells her that she saw Dawn and Jason fighting the night before. Sookie asks Jason if that is true and he tells her that it is true and he came over to apologize. She asks him why if Dawn fired a gun at him would he come to apologize. He said he had nothing to do with her murder and the neighbor tells them that she is going to go call the cops. He tells her to go do it and he is clearly angry. He leaves the house and sits on the steps absolutely crushed by this turn of events...

Episode Notes
Dawn lives across from Arlene Fowler

The language that Eric, played Alexander Skarsgård, is speaking is Swedish, the actors native tongue. He says "Vår lilla djurpark börjar växa till sig", which translates roughly to "Our little animal park is beginning to grow in size". The woman standing beside him responds with "Jag vet", which means "I know"
