Chaos ensued this week after Antonia's vampire minions descended on the crowd at the Tolerance Hoedown with the sole purpose of killing Bill.
When it looked like Eric might actually do it, Sookie zapped him with a double shot of her fairy fists of fury. She not only saved Bill, but reversed both the spells Eric was under.
So, huzzah! Eric's back. Celebrate accordingly.
Afterward, Bill wanted to punish Antonia by blowing up Moon Goddess Emporium - no matter how many innocent people were inside while Nan toed the Authority party line.
On the other side of the cemetery, Sookie told Eric she still has feelings for Bill. Eric got all snarly, and they yammered back and forth about their Speshul Wuv. Sookie could have professed her love for Rasputin – Eric’s back and that's all I care about.
On the human front, Jason felt guilty about sleeping with Jessica and asked her to make him forget about their encounter.
Hoyt later appeared on Jason's doorstep like a wounded puppy, asking Jason if he could crash at his place while his broken heart mends.
This sent Jason over to Sookie's like a stupid, sexy puppy in painted on jeans. He also asked to be taken in to avoid Hoyt and his sad sackedness.
Sookie told Jason about the impending Vamps vs. Witches showdown (for real this time!) and the two later asked Lafayette and Jesus to help them save Tara and the others from Moon Goddess.
Meanwhile, the aftermath of the Tolerance Box Social left Antonia rattled, and she decided to vacate the premises, as it were, leaving Marnie without a plus one.
Marnie begged her to stay on and plied her with free Wi-Fi and a complimentary continental breakfast. There was also some other stuff about how awful vampires were and how they should unite to fight them and Antonia ultimately moved back in.
Elsewhere, Alcide drove a gravely injured Tommy to Merlotte's and he and Sam stayed by Tommy's side until he died. You know what? It actually made me kind of sad until I thought to myself, "I have one less character to write about. HOLLA!"
Anyhow, Sam vowed to go after Marcus, who chose to unwind after beating Tommy to death with a joint and Debbie by his side.
She unloaded on him and poured her heart out about how Alcide didn't want children. Marcus volunteered to oblige her so I guess that makes him the Baby Daddy Laureate for the city of Shreveport.
Later, when Sookie & Co. assembled at Moon Goddess, Jesus' plan was to work Antonia just like he did Mavis. When he approached the building, an invisible wall of protection repelled him.
Antonia appeared and she challenged Jesus to join her at Moon Goddess, but only if he could make it past the enchantment. He ultimately made it through the wall, which was made of Sookie’s fairy beams and rejected video game sound effects from the '80s.
Jesus appealed to Antonia to let him speak to Marnie. When Antonia let her out to play, Marnie said that she was totally on board with the possession and went on to show Jesus the two vampire sheriffs she had stashed in a closet. Jesus beamed his thoughts out to Sookie and told her that there had been a change of plans because Marnie and Antonia were officially in cahoots.
Meanwhile, Tara and Holly worked a spell that allowed them to escape from Moon Goddess and they made a break for it. Marnie caught them, however, and beamed the girls, along with Sookie and Lafayette to parts unknown, presumably back to Moon Goddess.
That night, Eric – along with Pam, Bill and Jessica – rolled up to the building and armed with all sorts of fancy witch killin' weaponry.
