Anyway, Momma cries, and Sam tries to get Tommy to be cool with her, but that's not really his place, and then they all say goodbye and he gets himself the fuck back to Bon Temps. The white trash of Bon Temps grows thick in the hills and they are highly cult-susceptible, but at least they don't lounge about in their underwear like Arkansas hillbillies. Usually the only people in Bon Temps that run around in their underwear are hot. Totally different scene. I mean, there was that week of orgies, but that was like one time.
Jason Stackhouse, you sure are wearing a bunch of clothes today. And a certain optimism, if I read you correctly. Ah, yes. Having tackled a single drug dealer, while raiding Cal's compound in Hotshot, you have now had your purpose revealed to you by the universe. "Police work just ain't about tackling people. There's marksmanship, paramilitary training. I got all that now. And let's face it, would you feel safe with me patrolling the streets, or Andy Bellefleur?" Um, that depends on many other factors. But honestly, the point of that line is less to spark a debate about their comparative merits or non-merits and more about introducing the idea that Jason is about to fall out of love with Andy as a father-figure, and start fucking with him as a father-figure, so that he can eventually best him as a father-figure, and thereby become a man. Jason's track record with this particular thing, though, I just hope they both live through it.
Tara wonders why they had such weird sex just then, and he explains that she "lost [her]self to the void," which is a standard-issue vampire thing that vampires can do. Well, maybe that explains why Yvetta didn't punch Eric in the neck for drilling her like that last week. I can't help but imagine Bill being really uptight/jealous of this gift and constantly trying to figure out how you do the "void" thing but being too nervous and/or racist against vampires to actually ask anybody, so he's just like in this continual struggle to figure it out and in the meantime has developed a wide array of Sensitive Man Lovemaking Techniques where they just keep at you and keep at you and stare at your face whenever they do anything so they can analyze your responses and thinking it's a conversation you can actually have without wanting to barf where they try to impress upon you that all that matters is your pleasure and they love pleasing you sexually and whatever until you just want to pop them in the cock like one time so they'll quit it.
