Scott Foley appears in the bar at this point and it turns out he was in the Marines with Terry.
Terry: "I heard you were dead."
Patrick: "I heard you were crazy."
Terry: "Well, yeah. That's still true."
They talk about his zombie makeup and then he introduces Patrick to Arlene, and Patrick makes several weird creepy faces that could mean almost anything, from that he slept with Terry to the much more likely My Lai scenario we'll deal with next year. (Terry is also making insane faces, but that's nothing new.)
Alcide has come to visit Sookie, whom he hasn't seen since one of the many times he told her to stop stomping her face directly into vampire danger and she got feisty. I honestly don't even remember what the last one was. But he's here now. And why?
Alcide: "Well, I broke up with Debbie in a magical werewolf way, and now she's on the loose with a giant shotgun and has always been jealous of you, so just FYI you might want to watch out for that."
Sookie: "When did this happen?"
Alcide: "It was like moments ago. But anyway, it really made me think about how you and I don't really have much of a stake in each other, beyond our constant hugging of each other, and I thought, Well, we both have terrible taste in people we actually end up with, so why not date each other because we're good on paper?"
Sookie: "That's so insulting I won't even respond to it, but I still feel nebulous affection toward you."
Alcide: "Mostly, I just want you to feel judged for your ongoing relationships with vampires, who are the only people on earth you can date because of your debilitating mental disorder."
Sookie: "I don't like feeling judged. Although I am also incredibly fickle, so who knows how this will play out. All I know is, this whole season's been about whether or not I can afford to be single or whether I need a supernatural boyfriend, and so cutting my losses is already a sign that I'm going to be endangered in the future. Anyway, always nice seeing you."
Alcide: "I have to go! They just found the remnants of somebody getting buried in concrete at one of my job sites after drinking your blood and having Godric's ghost accidentally talk Eric into burying them there, so I should see what's up with that."
Sookie: "I hope it's not the only other vampire on earth who knows that I'm a fairy! That was once a very important plotpoint that ruined my life on several occasions."
