Salome: "The Book tells us that to stake a Guardian is to turn your back on Lilith herself. But what to do when that Guardian has already turned his back on her? I believe Lilith forgives Russell Edgington for what he's done."
Russell: "I'm down with that. Also, sorry for all that blaspheming before."
Cult That Was the Authority Until a Second Ago: "Love Lilith praise her praise her praise her praise her praise Lilith..."
Salome: "Roman always talked about how humans created us, or we evolved from them, but now apparently we all agree that's not true. He also thought this creepy blood reliquary was a fake-out, or symbolic or whatever, but also that's not true. The Authority itself was created to protect it."
Apparently the Book tells us Lilith met the sun by the hand of Man, and that night her progeny collected her remains in a clay jar, and that's what we're looking at... Which puts a new spin on the whole Brimful Of Talbot plot from Season Three, doesn't it? I always wondered if we'd get back to that idea, that you can somehow magically reconstitute a person from a candy jar. Russell thought it had to do with Sookie's blood, but I guess the truth was even dumber than that.
Dissent: "Drink it? This is a really gross idea that..."
Sploosh: "Anybody else want to bitch and moan?"
Baby Eater Guy: "No, I'm good. Hey, thanks for letting me be part of the Authority even though I just happened to randomly be in the building."
Steve Newlin: "Why not? I'm like a tree in the wind. I am just so happy to be included!"
Bill: "Short of running out of here, Ah suppose we're fixin' to do this?"
Eric: "Uh, we're vampires. This is vampire blood. Just V, like any other V. I doubt it'll even..."
Cut to the vampires high as fuck.
They roam the streets of New Orleans, laughing and touching each other, rolling like whoa, everybody magic and PLURed out and it's like, Remember how wonderful Lafayette was when he was explaining to Jason how V worked? You get the essence of that particular vintage, and see through their frame of reference. I guess in this case God trips balls. It made me miss the '90s for sure. It is very beautiful and very sweet and very scary. Bill's never been so happy. Eric's never been less cold. It's like a usual V scene in frequency and wavelength, but going in a whole different direction from usual.
