Sookie returns home to find Lafayette comforting Tara, who's in a state of shock over Eggs's death. When Sookie hears how it happened, she immediately tells Tara how she tried to help Eggs by restoring his memories. Tara loses it, attacking Sookie and shrieking that the only man she's ever loved is dead. Lafayette takes Tara back to his house and Lettie Mae comes to take care of her daughter. After Lafayette leaves for work, Tara's mother enlists a reverend for help. His visit seems to calm Tara, and Lettie Mae feels she's saved her daughter from darkness. But when Tara goes to take a shower, she tries to overdose on pills before Lafayette returns and kicks the door in to stop her.
In a rundown motel room, Sam awakens to a knock at his door and answers it to find a shirtless Bill, asking to be invited in. Sam obliges - and wistfully agrees to take a shower with the vampire - but just as Bill leans in for a kiss, Sam hears his phone ring...and awakens from the vampire-blood-induced dream. Sitting up in the same motel room he dreamt of, Sam answers the call from a local official, who gives him the latest lead on tracking down his parents: He apparently has a brother, Tommy Mickens, who's earned a reputation for ripping people off at a local tire shop. Sam pays the business a visit, and a worker with "Tommy" stitched on his shirt insists that the Mickens kid left months ago. Sam is hardly convinced, and when he later follows Tommy home, a mailbox full of past-due bills confirms that he's located his biological family.
Hoyt calls Jessica, who has been unable to revive her dead trucker. Hoyt wants to know if she received his flowers, but Jessica has more pressing issues to deal with. Later, with Sookie's help, she figures out that Bill's "call" was guiding her toward a place, and when the two women rush to the spot, they find his overturned car and a corpse with a brand linked to something called "Operation Werewolf."
Queen Sophie-Anne brings the Magister to Fangtasia, where he tells Eric of his concern that vampires are colluding with humans to sell vampire blood. He makes it clear that the punishment for such an offense would be dire. Once Eric and Sophie are alone, she orders him to sell off his entire supply of the drug literally overnight. Pam delivers the message to Lafayette, who has no idea how he'll move so much product so fast, especially with everything that's going on with Tara. Pam is not sympathetic.
As the evening crowd at Merlotte's grows, Arlene is shocked when her sense of smell suddenly becomes unbelievably sensitive. There's only one explanation...she's pregnant again. In the barroom, Jason does his best to follow Andy's advice and act natural, so he flirts heavily with two beautiful veterinary students. He and an unwilling Hoyt bring the girls back to his house, but once things heat up, Jason can't perform. Every time he looks at the girls, he envisions bullet holes in their foreheads. He tries to explain the problem, and the girls can't get out of the house fast enough.
Bill, weakened and ravenous from being drained, visits the house of an old woman and glamours her into letting him feed. Once he's finished, he gives her a handful of cash, imprinting her memory with the idea that her son wanted her to have the money. As Bill flees into the night, howls echo around him, and when a pack of orange-eyed wolves surrounds him, ready to attack, Bill tells them: "I should warn you - I've fed."
