Maryann's status questioned, Jason reaches a stage at Fellowship of the Sun, and Sookie meets one of her kind.
On the next "True Blood", Tara confronts Eggs on the status of his relationship with Maryann. Eggs responds, "We take care of each other". Rebuffed by Tara in her relocation efforts, Maryann decides to cast her spell on the staff of Merlotte's, softening Tara up toward her new "family."
In an interview with TV Guide, Michelle Forbes who plays Maryann explained the complicated triangle between her, Tara and Eggs. In reply to the question why Maryann is so focused on Tara and Eggs, Michelle said "Tara is just the one of the moment, the conduit into this town. Before her, it was Eggs. Before Eggs, it was someone else. After Tara, it will be someone else. The goal is much larger. Tara is just the most vulnerable and the most susceptible right now."
In Dallas, Sookie connects with one of her own, then joins Bill and Eric for a strategic summit at the lair of the missing vampire, Godric, attended by his lieutenants, Stan and Isabel. Meanwhile, Jason shows his mettle at a Light of Day boot camp, and is rewarded for his hard work with a gift from Sarah.
