The Stackhouses meet a long-lost relative that probably one of them already met. Eric goes to bat for Tara and also to stop racism. Sookie meets a hottie, because more than eight hours without a boyfriend and you deserve to die. Ditto Sam, who meets a VUS "zealot" named Nicole and -- there it is -- has the balls to fight Martha (and thus Alcide) about Emma's welfare, which is zero point zero his concern. Bill learns about being God and also about having people zooming up inside you and what that's all about.
