Sookie feels sorry for Jessica and takes her to see her family home, but instead of just looking, Jessica jumps from the car and rushes into the house. Her father confronts her and threatens her. This brings out the vampire in Jessica. Bill rushes to the house and saves the day, glamoring her family.
Sookie sees Bill for the first time as the vampire he can be, and it scares her, especially when he screams at her, she really doesn't need this crap.

He speeds to Fangtasia, demanding Eric save her.
Eric brings in a dwarfian doctor who is able to remove the poisonous bards to allow Sookie to be healed with Bill's blood, although Eric offers his blood. Eric would like nothing better than to gain some control over Sookie. Eric also sends Pam out to find this monster, but the vampires can't figure out what or who the attacker is.
When Sookie wakes the next morning, she runs into Ginger, reading her mind on accident, and discovering Lafayette is being held as a prisoner. Sookie demands his release, and gains it by agreeing to help Eric. Eric needs the mind reading abilities for a trip to Dallas.

Sookie is set to infiltrate The Fellowship of the Sun, but instead she is captured and put in the basement with the starving vampire at Jason's church. As of yet, Jason has no idea that Sookie is being held in the basement of the church he has been helping.
Daphne brings Sam to MaryAnn as a sacrifice, who in actuality is the monster with a human body and bull head that attacked Sookie. MaryAnn has also been controlling all those around her. She is demented, existing off the pain/pleasure she brings to others.
There much more action squeezed into the hour that the show is broadcast. This show has leaped pretty far from the books, but I think the books serve as a basis for the show while expanding and exploring new aspects. At first, when I realized that the show wasn't following the books, I was a little upset, being the Sookie purist that I am. But, it's very good and the characters are refreshing.
Some of the amazing cast of True Blood.
