Jessica's upstairs by the time Lilith brings him home, tuckered out after cleaning up what's left of ol' Veronica, but when she hears him -- on purpose or just with God power -- turn on the TV, she zooms back into his arms just in time to see his visions coming true.
Jessica: "You can see the future?"
Bill: "I can see the future."
And in that future, Tara and Eric and Pam and Jessica and the rest of them are rounded up like cattle, in prison jumpers, and the ceiling slides open, and they all burst into flame.
But you know what, I think it's going to be okay. What rises now is something better that that. He's got all the time there is, now.
The VUS gets involved in a custody dispute that is none of its business, Steve Newlin finally has to look at what he made, Eric kidnaps a kid, Sookie learns more about Warlow's agenda and entertains a few unwelcome visitors, and Bill plays God in a few key ways.
