The bartender is attacking Sookie and Bill has to take it into his own hands and stakes the bartender. He spews blood all over her until he falls into a pile. Ginger, the woman Sookie just questioned, throws up and continues to scream. Eric tells Bill that he doesn't understand what he sees in humans. Sookie looks at him clearly shaken from that experience. Sookie goes to the bathroom to clean herself and Ginger is on the floor trying to clean up the remains of the vampire. She is in great distress and Eric tells the ID woman to glamor her when she is finished. Eric offers a True Blood to Bill and he asks him how he can live off of that alone. Bill says he doesn't really think about it. He says all it really is is sustenance. Eric tells him that if he is the poster boy for the mainstreamers then they are in trouble. He says that True Blood keeps you alive but it will bore you to death. Eric tells him that he broke vampire law by killing a fellow vampire for a human. Bill asks what he wants to do about it and Eric says that he will take Sookie. Bill says no and then asks why he would want her if he can have anyone he wants. Eric asks Bill why he wants her. Eric asks if he is in love with her and Bill says that Sookie must be protected. Eric tries to get Bill to admit that he is in love with her. Bill evades the question by asking if he had not killed the bartender would Eric have let his disloyalty stand. Eric tells him that what he would have done would not have been in front of witnesses and especially not in front of vampire witnesses. He tells Bill that it wasn't smart at all...
