They are interrupted by a phone call from Bill. Bill tells Sookie that no one is holding him hostage and that he has left his life in Bon Temps and is leaving her. Sookie is disbelieving at first but Bill tells her he has just slept with Lorena and that he and Sookie were doomed from the start. By the end of the phone call Sookie is crying. When Alcide tries to comfort her she still denies that it could really be over and that she must still find him.
After finding Tommy trying to rob his bar, Sam goes outside to find his parents camping out in a van. They tell him they are there because they have no place to go after being evicted.
Back at Sookie’s home, Franklin has glamoured his way in and he makes Tara tell him all about Sookie.

When he wakes they head to Mississippi.
Bill tells Lorena to leave his room after his phone call with Sookie. He insists that anything that happened between them was him killing his love for Sookie and that he does not love Lorena. He drives this point home by punching her so hard she flies out of his room and hits the wall in hallway. He slams the doors to his room in her face.
Eric has a vivid daydream of Sookie where he finds her at Alcide’s home and they begin to make love. He is pulled out of the dream by Yvetta who is stripping for him. Eric has a look of profound sadness when he realizes that Sookie was just a dream.
Alcide refuses to help Sookie find Bill anymore and so Sookie calls his sister to give her a biker chic makeover so she can get into Lou Pines. Sookie is able to deduce that Debbie is addicted to V and that is why she left Alcide and switched packs. Sookie tells Alcide about this and convinces him to go with her to Lou Pines.
At the King’s home Bill tells Russell that Eric and Sophie Anne are selling V. He gives this information in exchange for a promise from the King that Lorena will be killed.
Sam finds Tommy sleeping in the woods near his bar and they have a heart to heart. Tommy feels that Sam got off easy and he explains to Sam that he feels trapped by his parents. Sam offers to let Tommy stay with him but Tommmy can’t do that because his parents can’t take care of themselves so he is obligated to stay with them and support them or they would be dead in a gutter outside of a week. Sam finds their parents and tells them he will set them up with a place to stay if everyone behaves. They agree.
Lafayette tries to sell V to some werewolves and it ends badly. They start to beat him up and Eric flies in to his rescue, after sensing he was in trouble. He and Lafayette are talking when Pam calls Eric to tell him that the Magister is raiding Fangtasia and she encourages him to stay away. Eric cannot leave Pam in the hands of the Magister though so he goes to her aid anyway. The Magister is torturing Pam when Eric gets there but Eric cannot admit to selling V or betray his Queen without committing a crime so he is in between a rock and hard place. Pam screams out that Bill Compton is responsible and Eric goes along with this, telling the Magister that he is trying to find Bill and bring him to justice. The Magister gives Eric two days to find Bill or he will kill Pam.

Sookie and Alcide go to Lou Pine’s biker bar, where Alcide confronts Debbie, who looks strung out. It becomes obvious that the pack and the V have too strong a hold on her. While they are there, Russell makes a brief appearance to make a speech and give the pack some of his blood. The pack brands Debbie in an engagement ceremony and then Coots gets up on the stage and howls. This causes all the weres in the bar to start shifting, including Alcide. As Alcide starts to change he tells Sookie to RUN!
