"You all right?" Tara asks, concerned and scared, amazed at the sudden depth of feeling she'd not witnessed before. Sookie shakes her head. Tara starts to apologize for the fight Sookie engineered crazily on her last week, and Sookie chokes back tears: "-- Tara, right now I don't even remember what it is I'm supposed to be mad at you for, so why don't we both just forget it, okay?" They embrace. And normally I would call bullshit on that kind of thing, but in this case the fight was completely stupid and made up because Sookie was going insane with grief, and Tara may be possessed by a demon, so yeah: best to just move on.
"It was in the flood," Jason says. Amy is opening him up, door after door after door, walking down the halls of him and unlocking doors and begging him to come out. There's no evil in that. Eddie gasps in sympathy. "Yep, it was the shits. But you gotta play the hand you're dealt, I guess." Eddie worries, because that means that Jason was left without a father or even a grandfather, just Adele and Sookie; just adrift in a world of women. "It's just that a boy needs a man in his life, to teach him what it means to be a man." Jason's defensive, thrown by that, because he always thought he did a good job with that, and he's certainly not going to take manhood advice from a subhuman homosexual on how to get it right. He breaks contact and grabs another beer.
"That's the hardest part of all this for me. My boy. He's got nothing but women around him now. He needs me, I'm not there." Jason assures him the son will be all right: "I mean, look at me, huh?" Eddie does; he looks at Jason, trying to make him feel better, and realizes just how in over his head this kid is. He really doesn't see the connection from this, this love and respect they are learning for eachother, and the deadly, awful, painful situation Jason's put him in. Just honestly has managed to split those two things apart. He feels a deep sadness, and Jason feels it, looking back, and something unlocks inside him; there is a powerful connection forged, something that can't be taken back. Something that says Jason, through all this, is good, and wise, and better than his circumstances. And oh my God, do people hate it when you start that shit.
