Slipping further into religious fervor, the radicalized Bill orders Jessica to turn Jason into a vampire, which she is loathe to carry out. Armed with a damning video of Russell and Steve killing the college students, the US military delivers an ultimatum to the Authority, which backfires as Eric recklessly kills the Commander. Eric and Nora re-connect and escape on the pretext of needing to glamour parts of the Military to get back the video of Russell and Steve killing from the previous night. Meanwhile, Pam takes the fall for Tara's murder of the new vampire sheriff and is taken to the Authority. At the Fae santuary, Claude and Maurella take Sookie to meet the fairie elder, who may know something about an ancient family secret. Elsewhere, Alcide reconnects with his estranged father and they defend themselves against baby Vamps. Also, Sam and Luna hitch a ride into the Authority to try to rescue Emma only to get taken hostage. Sam is transported off to be breakfast for Bill. Also, Bill believes he was chosen to lead vampires after seeing a vision of Lilith, but so does the rest of the authority. At the end, Russell and Steve force Jason to take them to the Fae sanctuary where they find the fairies and kill the elder... leaving the Fae haven exposed.
