"Eric, this is just stupid," Sookie says, staring down at her future vampire boyfriend on the hot pavement. He stares up at her, frying softly, and tells her to go away. Or maybe he's talking to his dead ex-boyfriend Godric, who is still talking about forgiveness and the sense of relief that Eric would feel if he could just perform this superhuman feat of forgiving Russell for killing those Vikings that time. Meanwhile Russell asks Sookie, "Sweetie," if she wouldn't mind using her magic powers to help them in some way, I guess to unlock the handcuffs and get him inside and away from the Ghost Whisperer. It's sort of sad that he thinks this is sensible, like, what's the opposite of noblesse oblige where he can just sort of Marie Antoinettedly assume that Sookie, having recovered from him drinking her into a coma, would be like, "I'll get right to it, sir!"
Sookie waggles her hands at the cuffs impotently but nothing happens, and Russell starts to yell at her about the Zen of Electric Fairy Blasts and things of this nature, and then -- once again with no real thought put into it -- starts threatening to come back from the true death and kill her "precious Viking" and "brooding Mr. Compton and his unbearable progeny" and everybody else she cares about. So then she zaps the cuffs, and he starts ordering her around so she zaps him too, slamming him against the wall opposite. He giggles and she drags Eric back inside, but he's not really sensate to any of this, because he's still looking at Godric, who's getting further and further away.
Eric's in such trouble that he can't even "drop fang," as Pam says, and of course Sookie tells Bill to bite her open immediately so she can feed Eric, and he gives in while Pam goes looking around for the keys to the cuffs. Sookie, always looking for a chance to score points in this game of life, reminds Bill that sometimes a vampire in extremity will go too far and keep sucking your blood until you're in a coma and then sometimes even after they revive you with their blood you dump them but then take them back after they fight werewolves for you but still have really troubling hate-sex with them. He understands her reference, because he remembers that part. So he broods over there to watch Eric sucking on his girlfriend and wonder where his life took this turn. Bill Compton is like the most interesting person.
