Episode 4: I'm Alive and on Fire

Summary

Alcide once again finds himself helping Sookie search for one of her vampire acquaintances as the plucky waitress sets out to locate Eric. Meanwhile, Bill discovers he has an unexpected connection to the Bellefleur family, Jason spots a chance to escape from Hot Shot, and Sam finds his way into Luna's inner circle. Supernatural drama, starring Anna Paquin, Joe Manganiello and Stephen Moyer

Review

A real tease of an episode. Just how long will it be before Sookie succumbs to amnesiac Eric, who’s no longer the “happy vampire” of fond memory? (Although I don’t think Lafayette sees it that way, as he and Tara put pressure on witch Marnie to undo her spell on the Viking vamp.)

And when Eric runs off, drunk on fairy blood, who’s Sookie gonna call? Moody and magnificent Alcide, of course, who’s happy to strip off for everyone’s benefit. A naked Eric giggling, a naked Alcide snarling? Now that’s entertainment…

Elsewhere, change is surely afoot for “ghost-daddy” Jason.
