Doctor Who Season 7 Episode 3 Sookie's fairy-folk tested her "luminescence" and told her that her powers might disappear if she overuses them. She seems uncertain as to whether or not that's a good thing. I'm sure there's some appeal to normalcy. Mind reading might seem like a perk, but we all know she finds it to be a burden when it isn't saving her (or someone else's) life. And the lightning bolts come in handy. Pardon the pun.
Jason and Jessica had a fight when he stopped by while she was feeding. He was put off by her kissing him with some other guy's blood on her breath. Given everything else that's going on, I find it hard to understand why he feels angry or betrayed that she's feeding, but him shooting her in the head was kind of funny in a completely-out-of-nowhere sort of way. Just one more bit of drama to add to the pile.
Doctor Who Season 7 Episode 3 We were treated to a few minutes too many of Arlene's wedding video. I suppose the point of the video - which had many of the main characters (sans Sookie, who was off in fairy-land at the time) - wishing Terry and Arlene well at their Merlottes-set wedding - was to show that Arlene still loves Terry and is trying to make sense of everything, but that came through in her talk with Holly. The whole segment seemed to run on a bit longer than it needed to. In an otherwise better-paced episode, a little look-back at how things were during the year-long gap between Seasons 3 and 4 might have been cute and amusing, especially when noting the things that have changed (Hoyt and Jessica all coupled and happy, Sookie's absence).
Speaking of Terry, he's still off with Patrick dealing with the smoke monster. His and Patrick's scene seemed so rushed, it almost didn't need to Doctor Who Season 7 Episode 3 be in there. Another example of the episode trying to do much more than it needed to.
Alcide and his pretty brunette second (anyone catch her name?) are training for the big showdown. This involves rolling around together and a fair amount of obvious sexual tension. Their training session was cut short by the arrival of Marcus' mother Martha, who's still looking out for puppy-Emma. Martha was all Team J.D. until she caught him trying to give Emma vampire blood later in the episode. Does this mean she now has to choose allegiance between a Doctor Who Season 7 Episode 3 V-addict and the man who killed her son?
Lafayette visited Jesus' grandfather, who sewed up Lafayette's mouth and was about to cut into his brain to take back his family's powers and put them into his unborn child. But the pregnant mother stabbed him and possibly killed him, so I'm not sure where that leaves Lafayette at this point. This story arc seems so detached from everything else that I'm not sure what to make of it. Like Terry's arc, it might have been better off saved for Doctor Who Season 7 Episode 3 another episode when there was more time to deal with it.
Moving on, Pam has Tara working the pole, which she seems to prefer to bar tending. Tara's mother stopped by looking dressed for church and declared Tara dead to her. Guess what, Lettie Mae? She's dead to everyone else too. Tara's always had a strained relationship with her mother, but given everything she's been through, her mother's formal dismissal of her can't have helped her mindset as a new vampire. But Pam swooped in and used the moment to Doctor Who Season 7 Episode 3 bond with Tara, telling her that in a hundred years, she wouldn't even remember her mother. Then she sent her back to the pole.
Sheriff Dearborn made a quick return when Andy went to visit him for advice, but he gave Andy the brush-off in favor of spending time in the hot tub with his mistress and some "experimental male enhancement ointment" he's looking forward to trying out. Doctor Who Season 7 Episode 3 Retirement seems to agree with him.
And that's about it. I hate to be a complainer, but for a season that took a while to get going, I was hoping we'd see some real momentum building by now. Despite all the bloodshed during tonight's episode, "In the Beginning" was just a bit too all over the map to really grab me. We'll see where things go next week.
Wowza. On last week's episode of "Doctor Who," Russell Edgington's iStake didn't trigger. And so that was the end of Detective Elliot Stabler Roman the Guardian. This week, the fundies on both sides reveal their plans -- the fundamentalist vampires want to eat all the humans, the fundamentalist humans want to stake all the vamps (plus miscellaneous supernatural creatures). Here we go! As always, spoilers ahead.

Russell stakes Roman into a pile of goo, and is immediately captured in a silver net by Vampire Authority soldiers. However, he later emerges unharmed and clothed along with Nora, and Salome reveals that she was the unknown vampire that dug him up from Bill and Eric's cement prison. Salome asks Bill and Eric to join her as followers of Lilith and believers in vampire fundamentalism (humans are food -- not friends). Doctor Who Season 7 Episode 3 They reject her offer, but she invites them to think on it while the rest of the council are gathered for a special ceremony to "forgive" Russell his past crimes.
At the ceremony, Salome brings out a vial of blood that is said to be Lilith's. She forces Bill, Eric and the remaining Chancellors to drink. As millennia-old vampire blood is very potent, all the vampires go on an insane V trip, stroll down Bourbon St. like drunk Doctor Who Season 7 Episode 3 tourists, BILL (to a cab): "We will walk WHERE and WHEN WE WANT."
crash a private party at a karaoke bar (the Cat's Meow?), and feast on all the humans inside. While they're wreaking havoc, an apparition of Lilith appears to all of them and urges them on. However, Eric is distracted by the ghost? hallucination? of his Maker Godric, who tells him to save Nora from doing the wrong thing.
At the store owned by (now-dead) Junior, Andy is being ineptly interrogated by his own not-so-bright deputy and Sam is literally sniffing out clues to the identities of the men who might have killed his shifter friends. Doctor Who Season 7 Episode 3 He finds rubber President Obama masks like the ones worn by the murderers and returns to the hospital to brief Luna on the situation. Sookie pays a visit, and she and Sam have a discussion about whether they would give up their powers to be normal. Sam says he doesn't think he can change people's minds about supernatural creatures, and adds that more people he loved might still be alive if he didn't have any powers.
As he's about to leave the hospital, Sam smells one of the male nurses, realizes he's one of the murderers, and tackles him to the floor. Hoyt and the hate group
Hoyt's buddy introduces him to the rest of the gang that wants to kill vampires and shifters. They say they just want to go back to the peaceful times before the vampires Doctor Who Season 7 Episode 3 revealed themselves to the public. GANG MEMBER: "Hate groups is about more than hate!"
Hoyt admits to hating Jessica for breaking his heart, and seems easily peer-pressured into joining the group, oh dear. The smoke monster cometh Arlene is watching her old wedding videos at the diner (gosh everyone seemed so happy when Sookie was off in Fairyland). She confesses to Holly that she thinks Terry might be insane, and Holly firmly tells her that Terry might be telling the truth about his curse and to stand by him.
Terry and Patrick are freezing their butts off in a field, waiting for the ifrit to come and burn them to death. However, it only pops up briefly to laugh at them and disappear. Doctor Who Season 7 Episode 3 Terry is so sick of being chased by this curse, he almost kills himself with Patrick's gun. Patrick manages to talk him down. South of the border In Mexico, Lafayette arrives at Jesus's grandfather's house and sees Jesus's severed head. Grandpa Don Bartolo captures Lafayette and tells him he's going to take back the powers Lafayette took from Jesus (via Marnie). Bartolo sews Lafayette's lips shut (horrifying!) and is about to begin a ritual to transfer the power using his wife's unborn son when the wife viciously stabs him to death.
