Sookie gets the usual speech from Gran about how Jason, while a terrible fool in many ways, would never murder multiple girls. However, what with the sudden uptick in murders, it's going to swing back around, and they'll come looking for him. So even though he didn't do it, Sookie needs to do whatever she can to clear his name. Not wanting to talk about her mark, Sookie asks how, and Adele sighs. "You use the gift God gave you. Listen in on people, keep your ears open. You're bound to hear something." Sookie begrudgingly remarks that it's nothing to do with her ears, and Gran gives her the big eye. "Whatever it is you use to listen, use it. He is your brother, Sookie." Sookie assents and Gran hugs her firmly, looking her in the eye to make sure she'll do it. "Good girl."
At Merlotte's, they're thinking up a storm. Mustache: (Whoever killed Dawn, I wonder if he had sex with her or not. Seems like a waste if he didn't. She sure was pretty. Never even looked at me...) She's listening, for once. All they think about is sex, sex, sex.
Old horny lady: (Can't get that letter in Cosmo out of my head. How much better could an orgasm with a vampire be? I wonder, is it that much better?)
Youthful redneck: (What the hell is this world coming to? Dead fucks, niggers and regular folk all livin' together. If God wanted it like this, he'd have made us look the same. It ain't good. Maybe these really are the end times...)
Old bitch: (Dunno what everybody's upset about, these whores had it coming. Hanging out in vampire bars... That ain't natural, and it ain't safe.)
An unhappy woman stares at Sookie: (You seem sad that girl is dead. I wonder if y'all were friends. And if you were, that means you're probably next. Fucking fangbangers. Crazy, every last one of you. Just like those women who write love letters to serial killers...) Sookie can't handle it, the heat behind it, and takes off, leaving the woman asking aloud for her ranch dressing. Ugh. Ranch dressing is like a disease, or heterosexuality. I won't have it in the house, and I don't understand how people even thought of it.
