Sookie and Alcide finally find Eric, swimming around in a holler and having a great old drunken time, and then everybody stands around with no clothes on feeling jealous and territorial while Sookie tries to explain reality to Eric. Eric is not having it, until the sun starts burning him, and then they finally get him to go zooming on home. Alcide follows, and then it's just Sookie, annoyed and stomping like any other day. Somewhere in the same very busy forest, Jason runs and runs and the panthers are coming. He cannot yet turn into a panther, so the pants stay on.
Tommy reunites with his gross mother and it's all very sad and trashy, and they cry, and hug a lot. She says she broke up with Joe Lee, which is obviously a lie, and in turn he tells her about his battle for literacy. She's very proud of him, whatever else is going on, and they bond over how boring and shitty Sam is. I guess Tommy's plan might be to get his gypsy mom to kick in money for his Maxine scam? They don't really talk about it. They're too excited about eating pork and beans and licking paint chips or whatever.
Creepily, Sam shows up at Luna's house unannounced, and they have a discussion about how it's okay for her to appear in his place of business but not for him to come over without calling. Number one, they are still very much in love. Number two, she has a very cute daughter named Emma. Because Sam has no friends, he is very excited to make friends with Emma, and it's all very dorky and sinister and red-flaggy, but somehow Luna overlooks her instincts and invites the strange man inside to play Barbies with her daughter. Maybe Luna is Skinwalking in the form of a bad parent today.
While Jason continues to run away from panthers and eventually ends up in a tree with a pointed stick -- thanks, Jesus Boot Camp skills! -- Sookie tries to get Eric to lie down and get some rest before the Bleeds kick in. He acts all offended like she even needs to explain what the Bleeds are, and then begs her to stay with him because he's drunk and lonely and still pretty scared about having no memories.
