Sookie offers to stay with Jessica at Bill's, but it's sweet: "I feel weird leaving you all alone," she says, as though it's not entirely for her own benefit. Jessica's going to be dead in a few hours, and then it'll just be Sookie alone in her fiancé's bed, less scared and alone. Jessica points out that she doesn't need a babysitter, but before she can finish saying it Hoyt appears from the shadows with a clinking bag of TruBloods. Sookie gets it, and tries to be Cool Stepmom, but asks Jessica to be gentle with Hoyt (for all she knows, Jessica was crying about him earlier tonight, and clearly he's here to apologize, so it's really just girl talk) and Jessica promises to call Sookie if anything happens w/r/t Bill, either factually or intuitively.
Hoyt's brought with him some B+ and has, as usual, left behind his subtlety detector. Jessica tries to stay strong, asking what he's doing there like it's an imposition -- "It's almost dawn," she spits, like he's trying to kill her his own self. She can't look him in the eyes, so she swings her hair around and stares at the floor, desperate for somebody else to fix it. She has to be strong. He can't come in, or he'll know what she did. What he made her do. "Hoyt, you can't keep showing up leaving stuff at my door." I'll take care of it myself, like I do everything else.
"If there's one thing that I learned from this whole thing with my mama, it's that I gotta take better care of you. You couldn't control yourself!" He compares it to the dumbest and the easiest thing -- people "walking around with hamburgers on their necks" -- and she jerks away. That's not what it's like at all. He doesn't know what it's like and he never will, the way it feels so good that you can't stop. "Biting people -- getting so mad that I do bad things by accident -- that's in my... It's in my nature."
