True Blood (2008–2014): Season 2, Episode 12 - Beyond Here Lies Nothin' - full transcript

The mayhem in Bon Temps reaches a fever pitch as Maryann prepares for her ultimate bestial sacrifice, conscripting Sookie to be Maid of Honor at the bloody nuptials. Meanwhile, Sophie-Anne ...

She wants you downstairs
with the egg.




What are you doing?

He's coming.

This means he's coming.

Tara! Tara, what--?

Lafayette, sweetie?

I'm your friend. I know
you're in there somewhere.

You don't want to do this.

Prepare her for Bromios,

prepare her for Eleutherios
prepare her--

Take off your clothes.


Listen to what you're saying.

I have thousand-year-old
vampire blood in me.

Now, take off
your fucking clothes!


Now put this on.

Get down here.

We're waiting for you.

Here she is,

just like you wanted.

Just in time.

What the hell are you doing in
my grandmother's wedding dress?

Welcome, Sookie.

You're gonna be
my maid of honor.

- Eggs, let me go.
- Don't fight it.

Just let it take you.

I've spent enough time
being taken recently.

Shush, you haven't been taken.
Just borrowed.

To go along with old,
new and blue over here.

Which one am I?

You have no right
to wear that dress

I should have asked,
but I couldn't find you.

You'll never use it anyway.

Oh, go to hell.

Please don't be so negative.

It is my day.

I've always liked you,

You give me extra pickles.

I don't know how you did what
you've done to them,

but I will not let this happen.

Girls, would you mind going

and helping
with the refreshments?

I need to have a moment
with my maid of honor.

Come on, Lafayette.

Oh, and bring some vines.

You too, Eggs.

She's not going anywhere.

I'm all yours.
Give it your best.

My best what?

The electricity.

Do it again.
I can't.

It's never happened
to me before.

I don't even know what it was.

I never felt
anything like it.

It was like nature herself

was shooting out
from your fingertips.

That's hitting me.

You're not committing
to this at all.

I do not have
electrical powers.

I am a human being.

You keep saying that.

But if you were human...

I would have
taken you over by now.

Come on.
It'll be our little secret.

What are you?

I'm a waitress.

What the fuck are you?

♪ See the party lights

♪ They're red and green
And blue ♪

♪ Everybody in the crowd


Mama, no!

What good's it do you
to keep your mother

locked up in her own house?

Norman Bates.

I'm gonna take everything you've

for the last two days
about me, about Daddy,

and I'm gonna lock it up
in a little box,

and forget
it ever happened.

This is bigger than
your petty, little feelings.

A god is coming
into our midst.

Does any part of your puny brain
understand what that means?

We're staying home.

Think back.

Wasn't there ever a time
you felt someone,

or something,
watching over you?

Yes. God.

Well, you can call it that.

But it's not the same one
the blind billions worship.

And in your heart of hearts,
you know it.

Fine. Then what am I?

You're definitely beyond human.

I live off human energy.

And yours I can't channel.

That's very rare,

though surprisingly not unique
in this town.


You're marrying Sam?


My husband is a god.

Sam is...

He's just
the ideal wedding gift.

Oh, it's been such
a long wait.

I'm sorry. I'm getting
a little overexcited.

I'll smear everything.

How do you know
he's coming tonight?

Oh, no time has ever
been more perfect.

I know my special sacrifice
is on his way.

He's done nothing to you.

He is the vessel.

He appeared to me naked,

a virgin,
drawn to the very statue

that represents the birth
of my god.

Should have sacrificed him
then and there,

but I foolishly let him go.

By "sacrifice," does that
involve cutting out his heart?

It's the food of the gods.

My husband
will love it.

It's the very thing

that gives him life.

You'll never get Sam.

He can escape you.

That is why you are here.

It's fate.

Just as Sam Merlotte is the one
who will bring forth my husband,

you, my dear, are the one

who will bring forth
Sam Merlotte.

The moment he learns
where you are,

he'll come running like a dog.

Maybe even as a dog.


Oh, isn't that beautiful?


How long does this game
go on for?

We play to 5 million.

- She's way ahead.
- It's pure luck.

Yahtzee is the most egalitarian
game in the world.

You could be my social,

or intellectual inferior,

but your chances
are equal to mine.

It's the perfect antidote
for this world,

where things such as superiority
and inferiority do matter.

Oh, uh, speaking of which,
I heard about your maker.

That blows.

Thank you.

Your Majesty is very kind--


That's six in a row.
It is a magic.

I do not cheat.

What would be the point?

I'm sorry.
You were saying?

I was just saying thank you.

Your Majesty's kind--
Oh, yes.

Now I remember.

Did you know that there's

a maenad in Renard Parish?

Yes, that is the reason
I came to see you, Your Majesty.

I wouldn't get involved
if I were you.

Stick to what you're good at.

I gave William Compton a few
bits of hand-me-down folklore

we've accumulated
over the centuries,

but who knows
if it's gospel or gorilla shit?

You know, I think he's
monogamous with his human.

He is in love with her, yes.

He is?

Well, of course
he would be with her.

You probably are too.

I do not love humans.

She's not entirely human.

Have you tasted her?

Sadly, no.

Don't. Ever.

One vampire falling in love
is bad enough.

Yes. Bill Compton certainly
has a knack for finding trouble.


For instance,
how does he know

I'm having you sell
vampire blood?

The guards hear everything.

Your Majesty, I'm sorry.

There's no way he could--

That is really bad.

He does not know
you are supplying it.

He'd better not.

I'm holding you

There they are.

Aren't yours lovely.

You may be the strongest,
oldest vampire in my queendom,

but if I wanted, I could own
your fangs as earrings.


I will take care
of Bill Compton.


Your turn to make a Yahtzee.

You suck at this.

You sure you wanna go in
with no backup?

You're my backup.

Now, this is Special Ops.

We're surgical.
One shot.

Say hello
to my little friend.

Hasta la vista, baby.

I love the smell of nail polish
in the morning.

♪ I'll be mountin'
My sweet Adelaide ♪

♪ I'll rip off her petticoats

♪ We'll be naked
When we promenade ♪

Holy shit.

That's Stackhouse property.

They got no right
to do that.

Whoa, whoa, whoa,
you just gonna run in there?

We're way outnumbered.

Uh-uh, not with Kid Glock
on my side.

And yours.


I never killed nobody

You see that house?

It's been in my family
for 150 years.

Now, what kind of man
would stand by

while his grandmother's house
gets torn to the ground?

It's not
my grandmother's house.

But it's in the town
you swore to protect.

It's times like these when this
town needs a good man, Andy.

And that man is us.

Let's hit it.

Ooh, Detective Bellefleur.

Frisk me.

Hey, get off.

Come here.



No one sees the bride
before the wedding.

The what?

Step away from the house.

- Andy!
- Don't fight it.

Don't fight it.


- Andy, where are you?
- Right here.


He's coming!


Fuck, yeah!

All right,

they're asleep
in the trailer.

Lisa was so worried
about her mom

she was afraid to go to bed.

If you'd let me glamour them,

they would have been asleep
in seconds.

You've heard there is
a maenad in our midst.

Yeah, I'm familiar.

Are you aware she's here
because of you?

Something like that.

I need you,

and Sookie needs you,

to make this right.

If I thought it was as easy
as giving myself up to Maryann,

I'd have done it by now.

And what's to say
she's gonna stop at me?

Killers don't just suddenly
quit killing.

You ought to know that.

And standing by idly
is not an option either.

You must come with me.

No, I'm not sure
I wanna be doing that.

I'm not sure
I'm giving you a choice.

Okay, what is with this egg?

Did you lay it?

No, silly,
it's an ostrich egg.

It represents fertility.

Anoint it with his blood.

You're the maid of honor.

You have to lick the egg.

Just lick it, already!

Oh, yeah. Only through the blood
will he come.

Shit, oh, shit, oh, shit.

Your vessel has arrived.


Oh, Jason, no.

Sookie, you look beautiful.

Girls, the time has come.

You too.

I will not be part
of anything so evil.

You. You're the brother?

Maybe I could kill you.

Fine, I'll go.

But please, just don't hurt
anyone else.

Make sure she behaves.

Here we go.

You're gonna break my arm!

Don't make me,
because I'll do it.


Bill! What the hell
are you doing?

I have your sacrifice.

Oh, my sweet vessel.

I offer him
in exchange for Sookie.

No! She'll kill him!

She's not gonna stop with me.

Take her to the dead man.

She's served her purpose.

Bill, you can't let her
kill Sam!

Sorry. This is the only way.

Get your fucking hands off me!

Sam, no!

Let go of me!

Get her out of here.

I won't have her
watch me die.

I will always be grateful
to you.

This isn't for you.

Gentlemen, he's yours.

Hi, Sam!

Get the hell off me.

This is what your vampire source
told you to do?

To give up Sam?

Sookie, you have to trust me.

Let us call forth our God.

The God with horns!

Worship him, bitches!

Now the sacrificial egg.

He's coming, he's coming,

he's coming, he's coming!

Hail Dionysus.

Hail Dionysus.

- Bacchus.
- Bacchus.

- Bromios.
- Bromios.

- Eleutherios.
- Eleutherios.

- Dendrites.
- Dendrites.

All these names of yours,
our bull-horned god.

Upon this occasion
of our marriage,

our offering symbolizes
the rebirth of our god.

When he was a child,

the jealous Titans
ripped him to shreds,

eating all but his heart.

And this last piece
was saved by his sister,

Pallas Athena,

who placed it into the womb
of his mother

so that he could be reborn.

Oh, great mother,

soon you shall have the heart

that will make your egg
grow fertile,

and your son,
our bull-horned god,

will come and stand
in your place.

No! Stop!


Oh, at last.

At long, long last.

He is yours, my Lord.

- Stop! No!
- You're lucky, Sam.

It's everyone's wish to have
their life mean something.

So few ever get to realize that.

Come on, do it already.
Do it.

Sacrifice him!

Sam, use your gift.

Sookie, use yours.

Thank you.



Bring the blood to me.



Oh, yes.

He is the vessel.

My Lord, this is the vessel
who shall unite us.





I'm sorry.

I'm so, so sorry.

Destroy it.

All of it.

The egg!
You killed our sacred egg!

It's not sacred.
None of it's sacred.

It's evil.

How dare you spoil my offering?

Lord Dionysus, forgive me!

Allow me to sacrifice

all of them for you.

Stop it!

You're hurting them!

You brought this upon everyone.


My Lord?

My husband.

Oh, you've come.

I am here, my love.

We're together at last.

Come to me.

My God.

I am the one
to be sacrificed.


Oh, I am the vessel.


I'm happy to die.

I'm yours.

Was there no God?


He killed you.



Is-- Is she gone?

I think so.

Is Sam all right?

He had to drink more of me
than I expected.

He's okay.

I promised Sam
that I would heal him.

We knew no other way
of destroying her.


I understand.

I'm sorry if I worried you.

I so badly wished that
you could hear my thoughts.

Sam, you were willing
to die for us.

Bill kind of promised
he wouldn't let that happen.

But if things didn't work out,
I guess I...

I was ready.

Holy fuck.

We got her?

You remember anything?

It was bad, wasn't it?

Bill, get rid of her body.

Bury it.
I don't care where.

Jason, Sam,

help everyone get home.

Ain't you gonna tell
what happened?

Not now.

Just get everyone
off my lawn.

Come on.


It's all over now.

Sookie, why do I have this
sick feeling that it's not?

Mama, you're okay.

You're okay, Mama. Mama.

Oh, thank you, God.
Thank you.

Well, how'd we get home?

What, you don't remember

The last thing I remember
is meeting

that red-headed vampire
of yours,

and then I...

She didn't bite me, did she?

You let a vampire feed on me?

Why on Earth would you choose
that girl over your own mother?

I didn't.

In brought you straight back
here right after she...

did that,
and then I--

I haven't spoken to her since.

What sort of evil monster
would attack an innocent person

for no reason?

Oh, look, she was kind of...


It wasn't you.

Whatever it was
that had control of you

made you say a bunch
of things you didn't mean.

Well, like what?

Spiteful stuff.

About Jessica.

About me.

Uh, and Daddy.

Lies, about how he shot himself.

That's not true, right?

It was a burglar.

Oh, you're nearly 30.

You should know the truth.

I should have known the truth
when I was 10!

Or, hell, when I was 25.

All these years
you keep me here,

you keep me from moving out,

you keep me from going
to college...

from doing anything

all because you were scared
of some burglar

that never existed.

I was scared.

I'm still scared.


you're all I got left.

I had to hang on to you.

You lied to me for 18 years

just because you didn't want
to be alone,

instead of letting me
be an actual person.

You know what I wish?

Mama, I wish that Jessica
had finished you off.


I'm sure you're--
You're just asleep.

Oh, God,
I pray you're asleep.

Um, Mama's gonna be home
real soon, okay?

I love you.

That's the third call.
Why aren't they picking up?

Yeah, come on.

Let's walk.

Whoa, Arlene,

I can give you a lift.

My truck's just down the road.
Oh, could you?

God bless you.

What is it?

I think...

I think I found my finger.

Holy Moses.
How the hell did you...?

It's okay.

Arlene, you mind
if Jane comes with us?

We need to
get her to the ER.

Of course.

How the fuck did I get he?

Come on by the station
in the morning.

I'll give you
your badge back.


I won't let you down,

And I'm never touching
another drink again.

This towns a hell of a mess,

and I'm man enough to know
I can't shoulder it myself.

You might have your faults,

but at least you got pants on.

I wanted to thank you
for trusting me with your life.

That couldn't have been easy.

Well, Sookie's safe.
You got what you wanted.

You wanted it too.

Well, she's family.

But they all are.

If there was a way to save 'em,
how could I say no?

I am grateful
that you would reveal your gift

for the sake of the town.

It took me this long
to realize it,

but you suffer a lot more
hiding something

than you do if you
face up to it.

Where's Maryann?

She's gotta know
what happened.

We're okay.
That's all that matters.

Blood on my hands is not okay,

Sookie helped me remember
some of the things I lost.

And I wish I could
forget it again, trust me.

There's things
you don't want to know.

How do you know
I don't wanna know 'em?

All that stuff's in the past.

Why dwell on it?
Can't we just start fresh?

Fuck, there's blood
under my fingernails.


got everyone home.

Did Bill come in?

I-I think he went upstairs.

Is he okay?

Are you okay?

Yeah, I just...

I'm so sorry for bringing
all this craziness

into your house.

I got sucked in

'cause she made me feel
like I was a part of...

like, a family or something.


You have a family.

We're family.

And tomorrow, we're gonna clean
every single thing

that monster
touched in this house.

Oh, my God, is--?
Is Mike Spencer still here?

I kinda knocked him out.

I'll wake him up.

You go to bed.

Thank you.

How long before sunrise?

Forty-one minutes.

Hold me for 40.

Well, I certainly
never expected

anything like that
to happen here.

I know.

thanks for opening today.

I know you didn't
have to,

but everyone's grateful for
a little something familiar.

Ah, it's not just my bar.
It's everybody's.

But it's called Merlotte's.

Merlotte is just a name.

Doesn't really say anything
about me, does it?

Mama, we forgive you.

You shouldn't even have to know
what that word means.

Mama, it's okay.

Mr. Merlotte
kept us company.

He took us to see some vampires,
and one of them can fly.

Well, heh,
Mr. Merlotte's a good man,

but he ain't your family.

I'm the one that should have
been there.

I'm so sorry
about that, okay?

But I promise you
that from now on,

I'm gonna be the best mama
in the world, okay?

Stick 'em up.

Tell you what,

you kids keep an eye on
your mama when she's at home,

and I'll make sure nothin' bad
happens to her when she's here.

That way, we can all
take care of each other, okay?

Sure, I guess.

Sounds like a plan to me.

Hey, Arlene. Terry.

We're drowning back here.
Come on.

Okay. You can skip
to the ice cream if you want.

Um, Mama?

When you went away
for all that time,

you didn't go see Rene,
did you?

Uh, no.

I think he's still
on his vacation.

Eat, eat.

Yep, I'm pretty sure
he's dead.


Gas leak, my ass.

You know the real reason
no one remembers anything?

It's the way the aliens
wanted it.

The what?

"Maryann Forrester"

with "Martian Foreigner."

Mm-hm, mm-hm.

She's a fugitive
from her home planet.

Everyone knows that, uh, aliens
erase people's memories.

It just adds up.

I heard that Maryann Forrester

was an agent
of the pharmaceutical companies

and the liberal media,

and she poisoned
our water supply

with LSD
as a mind-control experiment.

Like they did to San Francisco?

Yeah, and that's why I stick
to Mountain Dew.

Mmm. Mm-hm.


You know, uh, between us,
the real story?

ATF shut down a distillery
in Breaux Bridge last week

over a bad batch of vodka.

Pure ethanol.

- No.
- Yeah.

Apparently that's what they were
serving up last night.


Mountain Dew. Smart choice.

I knew it.

God bless who made those jeans.

I'm serious,
I'll wear him like a scrunchie.

Hit me.

Everybody been acting so crazy,
I forgot how stupid they were.


Ah, there it is.

Sook, I feel for you the most.

What? Why?

'C you know
what really happened,

and you got to carry
the burden of that.

I mean, I'm thrilled
I got a choice,

and I don't ever wanna know.

Don't tell me nothing,
even if I beg for it.

I don't think it's healthy
to know everything you've done.

Its like knowing what's in a
sausage. You should just eat it.

You should enjoy it.

Oh, speaking of which, Jane
Bodenhouse wants a jambalaya.

I don't know.

It was so traumatic
I must have blacked out,

but I'm thinking a gator
must have bit it off

while I was down at the lake.

I've been doing
a lot of sunbathing lately.

But the doctor
who sewed it back on

says I have wonderful
bone structure,

so hopefully it'll take.

Luckily, I use my right hand
for most things.

It wasn't no gator and you
weren't down by the lake.

Andy, shhh.

I saw you pull that finger
out of a giant statue of meat.

Just like I saw you getting it
from behind from Mike Spencer.

Oh, Andy.

Whatever you're drinking,
we all want some of that.

It's Diet Coke
with lime.



Used to be they all
thought I was crazy.

Now they know
I'm tellin' the truth,

and they can't face it.

Zombie-eyed freaks.
Hey, let it go, bubba.

Look, you and me both know we
saved her and everybody else.

We're heroes to this town.


They don't remember anything,
we don't remember anything.

How does that make us heroes?

We gotta be.

We set out to save this town
from Maryann.

Now today, she's gone,
and everybody's okay.

We must have
done something right.

In my book, if no one thinks
we're heroes, it don't count.

Of course it counts.

It's like if a tree
falls in the woods.

It's still a tree,
ain't it?

The whole point in being a hero

is to do something greater
than yourself.

It'd be easy to do it
for the glory or the girls,

but we're bigger men
than that, right?


Strange to see you working here.

It's been a while.

It's just like riding a bicycle.

Hey, uh...

you think you can keep an eye
on things here, uh, without me

for a couple days?

Why, where you going?

Well, I...

I'm the only one who hasn't had a break

And, uh, in case
you didn't notice,

last night was a little rough
for me too.

I don't have the words
to thank you for what you did.

It's probably best you don't.

I'm not sure we want people

well, any of it.

Well, I for one wish everyone
knew how special you are.


Sookie Stackhouse?

I'm Autumn
from Maison Maribel in Ruston.

Special delivery for you.


Thank you.
Lucky girl.

You've got one classy admirer.


Uh, can I have a minute?


Oh, my God, you scared me
half to death.

I'm sorry, Sookie. I just...

I gotta talk to you.
What is it?

You look like you
haven't slept all night.

There's gaps...

where I can't
remember anything.

But I have to know
what I did, and...

Please, Sookie.
I need your help.

Oh, I don't know.

It's not as easy as that.

I had blood on my hands
last night,

and I can't remember why.

Now, I know I did
a lot of terrible things

in my past,
but I paid for 'em.

I thought
that was all over.

But if it's not...

I got a right to know.

Are you sure?

'Cause Maryann made a lot
of people do a lot of things

they wouldn't ordinarily do.

Like--? Like what? What things?

I can't live with myself
not knowing what I did.

I don't know what I am.

You can help me,
I know you can help me.

I know it. Please help me.
Please help me.

I can't promise it'll work.

I had Bill with me last time.

just tell me what to do.

I want you to find it.

You have to open yourself up.

You have to let me in, okay?


Let's go back
to your first blackout.

Do you remember that?


Take me back there.

What's the last thing
you remember?

I'm with Maryann in her car.

She's taking me somewhere.

Then it's just blank.

Concentrate. Let me in.
I'm trying.

Okay, okay.

You're in the woods.

There's a woman there
with a-- With a cane?

Yeah, yeah, I see her.

You're a vessel
to the Other World.

- You will bring forth my God.
- I ain't no vessel.

I don't know
what the hell I'm doing.

It wasn't you.
You had no free will.

I killed people.
I cut out their hearts.

No, listen to me.
That wasn't you.

Maryann used you.

But it was my hands.
My hands that did all that.

don't blame yourself.

Eggs, I'm so sorry.




You look
quite a vision.

Are you off
to see Hoyt Fortenberry?

So what if I am?

You're going to see Sookie,
aren't you?

It's fine.

In my day, the gentleman
came to the lady's house

to court her,
but times change.


I see
his mother's gone.

He took her home yesterday.


I hope she's better.

And I hope you and Hoyt
have a nice time.


Actually, we kinda had
a little fight,

but I was just gonna go over
and make an apology.

Well, he'd be a fool
not to accept.

Where are you going
with Sookie?

To a French restaurant.

Do you know I haven't
been to one in over 70 years?

Humans seem to love them.

They go there to celebrate.

Just be back by 5.

You be back by 4.

Mrs. Merlotte.

Oh, dear God.

You, uh, threw away
all the pictures of me?

We have 'em. It's just, uh...

It'd be hard to explain
to friends

who think we never
had children.


Will you sit down?
No, I don't plan on staying.

We never thought
we'd see you again.

Never say never
when there's the Internet.

Sam, if you came
for an explanation,

um, I don't have a good one.

Mitchell and I were down
to our last nickel,

and we were scared.

We still don't know
what we saw that night.

You saw me turn into a dog.

And apparently that was worth
abandoning me over.

So I spent the next 19 years
making sure nobody

would know who I really was.

That's what you left me with.

I'm sorry.

I am so sorry, Sam.

We never meant to hurt you.
Hey, hey.

I'm not here
for an apology.

I wanna find the people
you adopted me from.

I wanna meet my parents.

I can't do that.

I swore to them
I'd never say anything.

Jesus Christ.

Please. Trust me.

You don't wanna know them.

They're bad people.

Well, I guess you know a thing
or two about that.


Uh, no,
before we go any further,

there's something
you ought to know.

Yeah, what's that, sugar?

That I'm...

I'm a virgin.

Oh, yeah?

That's okay.

I'll be gentle with you.

In fact, I kinda like it.

Well, I don't like it one bit.

Welcome, Mr. Compton.
We are all ready for you.

Thank you.
I'll get the music started.

You rented out
the whole place?

The sight of you is not

I wish to share with others

Oh, Bill, you didn't have to do
all this for me.

I love nothing more
than to see you happy.

It's really quite selfish.

I know I'm gonna eat,

but what's there for you to do
at a restaurant

besides look at me?

We can dance. May I?

Andy Bellefleur.

Whoa, whoa.

Hold up. Hold up!
No, no, no, no, no.

Listen, I'm a killer.

I'm a murderer.
I murdered innocent people.

Now, you-- You just have to
lock me up, please.

All right, man, well,

why don't you
put the knife down, we'll talk?

It's the murder weapon,
you dumb fuck!

The voodoo woman, Daphne,
Sam Merlotte.

I used it on all of them.
Hold on, now.

We both know you were
under Maryann's spell.

But it was me who cut out
those women's hearts, Andy.

Calm down. Calm down.

Give me that knife--
You call this a knife?!

I saw their eyes.

Looking up at me,

holding this knife out.

That was the last thing
they saw, Andy.

He was gonna...

Holy shit.

I ain't never
killed nobody before.

Fuck, this ain't even mine.
Give it to me.

Give me the gun.

You didn't see anything.
You weren't here.

Get the hell out of here.
Go on.


Somebody call an ambulance.
Oh, my God, what happened?

We got a confession from
our killer and a murder weapon.

He was coming after me,
and, uh...
Oh, God.

I got him.

Oh, no, Tara, honey, don't...

Oh, no. No.

No, no, no, no.

No, please.


It's a good thing you don't eat.

'Cause I wouldn't have
shared it with anyone.

I can't think of a better way
to top off

the best meal of my life.

I do have one last thing.

Plane tickets?

Where's Burlington?

It's in Vermont.

Why would we...?

This is the other part.

Miss Stackhouse,

will you do me the honor
of becoming my wife?

That is,
assuming that last night

didn't scare you off weddings
for good.


Say something.

I've dreamed of this
since I was a girl.

And in my dreams,
I always say yes.

then it ought to be easy.

Then why can't I say it?

My heart's
flying around in my chest.

I can't even think straight.

My life's inside-out.

With all that's happened,
I'm not sure about anything.

I don't even know if I'm human.


Maybe I am some kind of freak.

I've only met one other person
in the world like me,

and who even knows where he is?

And what happens
when I grow old and weak

and you're still the same?

What then?

Sookie, I don't care
about any of that.

I want you just as you are.

But I'm not even sure what I am.

Are you saying no?

I'm saying...

I-- I don't know
what I'm saying.

I-- I need a minute
to clean myself up.

I'm sorry.


Yes, Bill Compton,
I will marry you.
