You like to see couples, like established long-term relationships, in the kitchen. They move around each other without looking and they know where everything is and they've made the guacamole a million times so he knows when to cut the lime and she knows he likes to lick the fork. And this little moment with the blood is, for a second, like that. But by the end of this episode, it is the complete opposite of that.
When they ask if Eric's crazy, this is his response: "Godric appeared to me and asked me to spare Russell." So... And Eric turns his puppydogs up to full force and it has no effect, Pam tells him to drop it, and finally he stands up and heads for the door, with a little fangs-out growling tension with Bill for some reason, and then Sookie's like, "You idiots" and goes out to get Russell herself. She wraps a thick chain around his neck and then drags him inside by the head, which right now looks like the actual inside of a gas grill.
Tara complains that Sam didn't tell her about his powers before sleeping with her, which is A) Not really what she's complaining about and B) It wasn't the sex, it was the hoecakes. But really what she's saying is that he has accidentally tripped a wire because she has decided to define the world as Normal Things and Darkness, so she can stay whole for a little while longer, and he just brought darkness for no reason into her business. He tries to remind her that Franklin was a singularly bad bad guy, and that Sam himself is not a psychopath. The best part is when he reminds her of all the many terrible things that have happened to her that weren't supernatural in nature. Sam is really good at pep talks.
They change topic suddenly to how Tara wants to not know any of the things she knows or feel any of the things she feels and just be a whole new person. The shapeshifter who was once a jewel thief and murderer assures her that it's possible, especially for a genius like Tara, but that it will eventually always catch up, like the bull-headed MILF that took your v-card, which is why you just have to keep on moving.
