Do I love him, or do I hate him? I can't tell. This episode is so weird and off that I am not committing to anything this week. Jessica bravely pretends that she's freaked out by the disembodied head because it is a head, but he's not fooled. "Come on, tell me! Where'd you meet this handsome devil? Hm? Who broke the ice? I'm guessing him: You've sure got some pretty lips, girlfriend," the head woggles, and then starts making kissing noises. It's so gross, but also kind of awesome. Point being, he explains, he's a finder of things and a fixer of problems. So quid pro quo, Clarice: Tell me everything there is to know about Bill.
Sam wakes up to a silent alarm going off in the bar, grabs his gun and heads for the office -- where Tommy, once again, takes flight before Sam can grab him. The room's been tumbled, but I don't know if he got anything.
Alcide takes Sookie to "Lou Pine's," the oldest and most creatively named were bar in Mississippi, and I'm sorry but it looks cheap. I realize a certain amount of money is going to be spent on the obvious things like wolves and whatever, this year, but Lou Pine's is one of the most amazing settings in this story -- there is a dance sequence coming up, hopefully, that is maybe the greatest thing that will happen all season -- and it's just sort of cheap looking in reality. Not like a dive bar, not like authentically cheap, but like a badly constructed set for a TV show. It's not a biker bar in any way, it's like a tourist bar, with light-up things all over the place. Also? There are giant pictures of wolves all over the walls, which: Gay.
Hollis, the giant bouncer, recognizes Alcide from "the old pack," and Alcide sort of quietly apologizes for disappearing, pointing out his dislike of the new crew. He tells Sookie she's dressed kinda like "dinner" and Alcide promises to watch out for her, but then immediately when they go into the club, he's like, "Oh right, we have to split up because you can't be seen with me because of my open antipathy toward like every single person in this establishment." So I mean, explain that to me. How is Alcide helping her infiltrate the were community if he's got beef with some of the were community? He takes a place with his "guys," to watch out for her, and she... Oh, Sookie. You magnificent bastard. Like, this is her idea of how you do this.
