True Blood: The Fourth Man in the Fire

Oh, Sookie... After the fire destroyed the house, Sookie believes Bill to be dead. Jason and Amy seem perfect for each other after their night of passion sans penetration, but eventually Amy shows her dark side. Bill survived somehow by burrowing beneath the earth only to surprise Sookie after a most touching moment. Police question Sam about his nude runs, and decide to do a follow up on his story only to lead to more questions. Bill is ordered by Eric to bring Sookie into Fangtasia to question humans about missing money...only to find out that a vampire hired them.
