Tara jumps Debbie and they scuffle, which is good for Tara on many levels. She gets the gun, gives it to Alcide so they can continue to fight, but then just when everything is going okay, Cooter comes in. Oh, Cooter. I love you as I have loved few people on this show. Please do not do anything stupid.
Cooter does something stupid, and then is dead. Well, that should totally calm Debbie down.
Debbie: Very sad. Cooter: Very much brain coming out of the back of his head. Tara and Sookie: Staring, nervous. Alcide: Apologetic, but only to a certain extent. He holds the gun to Debbie's own head and sends the ladies out to the van with the burrito. Tara basically can do this one-handed, because she is a superhero right now. Left alone with Alcide, Debbie delivers a speech that is one of the highlights of the episode. She really is just one of the most mindblowing actors on this show. I mean, if you knew Debbie from the books -- I know, I know -- you would just die from how awesome Debbie is on the show. I don't even know if I can get across how amazing her giving this speech is:
"So what's it gonna be, Sweetheart? You gonna kill me too? You fucking better. Because if you don't, I'll sniff you out. I will. I will come after you, and I will hunt you down."
It is epic. She is broken, and shivering, and sad, and shaking, and yet it seems to take forever because the vibe is so intense. She's like an angel, a slutty, bloody angel, for a second; like she's telling him what's going to happen instead of threatening him. It's like watching a former person turn into just one thing. It shines.
Alcide totally believes her, too, but today is not the day for him to kill her. He's like Lorena, in that the day will never come. So he locks her in the Quarters with Cooter's body -- horrible screams, sad screams, echo throughout this next paragraph, as well as the howls of the approaching FUC -- and heads outside, where Tara is clean-jerking Bill into the sky with, like, her pinky. Tara also notes that "the fucking fanger's lost a lot of weight in blood," which helps. Sookie is, of course, appalled, and wonders if being totally high on drugs is making her be so rude. Tara says no, in fact this is just her talking: "He left me for dead?" Sookie, of course, literally goes, "Two wrongs don't make a right!"
