In the back of Alcide's van, Sookie tries to resuscitate Bill by pouring her own blood into his mouth. The attempt works far too well: Bill wakes up in an animal-like state and attacks Sookie. Tara and Alcide don't realize what's going on until it's too late. When Tara opens the back doors to check on her friend, Bill has returned to normal, but Sookie is drained and at the point of death. Enraged, Tara throws Bill into the sunlight before shouting at Alcide to drive to the hospital. Bill stands at the side of the road, staring at his hands, amazed that he's in the sunlight but not getting burned.
Before the man who captured Sam can put him in a cage, Sam shifts back into a human and knocks him out. He releases all the dogs from their cages and sets off an alarm, which quickly scatters the crowd betting on the fights. He finds Melinda and Joe Lee watching Tommy in the ring with a ferocious pit bull, and after Sam stares the other dog down, he turns on his parents. He orders Joe Lee to give his clothes to Tommy and then offers his brother a chance to leave these two behind forever. Tommy agrees and walks away with Sam.
In the dungeon of Fangtasia, the magister tortures Pam on a table until Russell and Eric arrive to put a stop to it. Russell explains that he's decided that the vampire "Authority" is obsolete, and he plans to sublimate humanity himself. He commands the magister to marry him to Sophie, and under the threat of death, the magister complies. But after the brief nuptials are complete, Russell kills the magister anyway, decapitating him.
Jason goes to the station to interrogate T-Dub, but the meth addict refuses to tell him anything about Crystal and her family unless Jason scores him a fix. Jason drives to Merlotte's and tries to get the meth from Lafayette -- who outright refuses -- but then he receives a call from Tara that Sookie is in the hospital.
Sookie has lost a lot of blood and fallen into a coma, and when the doctors try to give her a transfusion, her body rejects it … because she doesn't have a blood type. Jason arrives and urges his sleeping sister to hang on. Sookie is lost in a dream, however, where a mysterious woman named Claudine introduces her to a glen filled with dancing people who drink from a fountain of white light. Claudine urges Sookie to leave her world behind and join them, but before Sookie has time to decide, a darkness descends on everything. Claudine flees, telling Sookie, "Don't let him steal your light."
In the hospital room, Bill arrives and offers to give Sookie his blood to try to save her. Jason thinks for a moment, and despite Tara's objections, allows it. Bill inserts Sookie's IV tube directly into his vein, and as the blood enters her body, she wakes up, takes one look at Bill ... and screams.
