Eddie's doorbell rings and he turns off the TV; at the door stands Jason Stackhouse, like a pizza only very much better; it's only just post-primetime, so I'd say it's about breakfast time. "I'm a friend of Lafayette Reynolds. He sent me? For you?" Jason smiles nervously, giggles that way he has when he's wondering how gay things are about to get; Eddie opens the door and Amy throws a chainmail mask over his face. It starts to steam and smoke immediately, and the screams are very human underneath it. Jason freaks out, but she moves him out of the way, binding Eddie's hands and feet with silver, ignoring him until he says her name aloud and she nearly slaps him. Eddie begs for his life and she slams his head against the floor; they carry him out to Jason's truck and load him up, screaming all the way, begging for his life. Eddie, begging for his life of couches and TV and prostitutes, and they don't even hear him.
"Strange Love" started with Kelly and Brad and a hand job, and ended with Mack and Denise. This episode started with holy pilgrims, kissing in bed, walking in each other's most exalted places; this is what happens when you think you've found salvation. Everything becomes its opposite whether or not you're there to ride the change, but if you ever let yourself think you're allowed to rest, to stop, something in you will crack, and sicken, and die.
"This is the last of our humans," says Pam, some time later, and oh, what a shining example she is. Meet Ginger, who's wearing a garment that wouldn't be up to Leeloo's structural integrity code, made out of shiny stripper crap. I didn't know they had regular strippers at Fangtasia!, although I never really looked at the servers either so maybe they all dress like that. Ginger does a fairly good impression of being what she is, which is disgusting trash, and hits on Bill on her way to sitting down and being really hostile to Sookie, but eventually thinking enough thoughts that Sookie realizes she's clean, but knows who did it. "What? Fuck you!" (Shit how'd she know I didn't tell anyone I swear fuck he's gonna kill me) Sookie asks who's going to kill her, and presses harder, and tells Eric it's just blank, like an erased memory; the four vampires look at each other and just as Pam and Sookie realize she's been glamoured, meaning the thief is a vampire, Ginger's eyes dart to Long Shadow and Sookie stands, terrified. But it's already too late, because duh he is a vampire, so he leaps over the bar and jumps her, hands around her throat and teeth out and ready.
