Tara's face as she watches this goes from shame, to fear, to pain, to sadness, to acceptance, to a doubt that she'll ever have that much peace. And I don't really think Holly will ever go dark, because it's pretty shallow, not to save naïve, to think that a rape survivor's message of strength is in any way comparable to Maryann's self-help trip last year; that any writer, or story (fan fiction aside) could be that callous, or spiritually dead, or sexually sheltered. Bad enough to whine that Maryann lacked merit -- that the best of her wasn't carrying Tara on her back this entire season; that Maryann and Miss Jeanette together gave her the tools she only managed barely to escape with -- but even worse to just assume that because you got bored with Maryann last year, when it got too challenging, that these next three episodes with Holly are somehow going to replicate that boredom. So gross.
Anyway, Sookie's looking at a scrapbook (which always works out so well) and somehow noticing (for the first time) that her family is telepathic superheroes going way back when Hadley calls Sookie to be mysterious and withholding some more. She yells at her for answering the landline and thus not leaving Bon Temps -- which Sookie explains no longer matters, because the bad thing happened; "They came, they gave it their best shot, and I'm still here," she says delightfully and a little grim -- and Hadley just reminds her that Jason and Sookie are the only family she has remaining. (Where is the Queen? Not necessarily related, but what does the Queen think Hadley does all day? "Just another day of running around giving my cousin spooky messages and kidnapping children, you know. Went shopping.")
Anyway, Sookie runs on over to Monroe to meet Hadley, who has abducted her son -- custody of whom I'm guessing she lost about a year ago when she became a fangbanger, unless it was before that when she was a crackhead -- and now wants Sookie to scan him to make sure that his total weirdness is because he's telepathic like Sookie and because he's... Just weird. Turns out he's both.
(Also, who knows if this is meaningful but he's standing at a display marked CAMOUFLAGE. Also, they are in an aquarium for no real reason other than he's a kid, unless it's to fit with all of Sophie-Ann's water imagery -- or Magicland's.)
