True Blood (2008–2014): Season 3, Episode 11 - Fresh Blood - full transcript

Bill tries to earn back Sookie's trust, but ends up bringing her face-to-face with fresh dangers. Knowing he's no physical match for the King, Eric tempts Russell with the "ultimate vampire dream." Jason tries to wrap his head around Crystal's revelation. Sam embraces his dark side, alienating everyone except Tara. Hoyt and Jessica take their romance to the next level; with Holly's help, Arlene puts her future in the hands of a goddess; post V-trip, Lafayette struggles with new demons.

They're not here.
Sookie is. I feel her fear.
She came here on her own. It's not our fault you weren't invited.
Maybe she's afraid of you.
Did she say that?
I don't think she wants you anymore.
If you try to keep her from me, I will kill you.
Get a clue, Bill. I'm not the enemy.
I am older and stronger.
You are no match for me.
This is not just about your relationship, you infatuated tween.
There's a bigger picture.
Not for me.
Don't you want the key?
Colloidal silver, in stock and overpriced at your neighborhood health-food store.
Rush, quick. l help.
-l thought you were on Eric's team. -Him?
Big, blond stupid. I hate.
Me too. He's a two-faced snaky son of a bitch.
Bastard and bitch Pam.
You're preaching to the choir. Get me out of this hole.
You bastard!
-What did she do to you? -Silver particles in water.
Your poor face. Can you see?
No, but I will heal.
Not until we get it off you.
Secure Pam. We can't let her call Eric.
I secure. I secure, no kidding.
Why did Eric throw me down there?
Answer me! Or l'll spray you.
You were supposed to be a gift for Edgington.
Now we're all gonna die because of one freaky little human.
-Good. -We have to go. Eric may come back.
Don't leave me alone with this idiot immigrant.
This way, honey. l got you.
Idiot? Ha.
-ln Tallinn, l am a cardiologist. -Ah!
I had no idea, man. I never thought.
Is it always like that?
Took me some fucked-up places and showed me some crazy shit...
...but not like today.
It was so real.
You know, so alive.
I was telling you things I didn't know l knew.
I mean, without fasting, without praying, without any other ritual.
We time-traveled into ourselves. There were fucking answers there.
Downshift, boyfriend. l'm a V veteran and l know for a fact the blood can lie.
Did that feel like a lie to you?
Let's do it again.
Just like a virgin.
Oh, come on, baby. Take me back.
I want to see my people.
I wanna hear what they have to say.
I feel like everything that I need to learn is just one drop away.
Well, boy, you can't control the destination.
We can end up in hell or fucking South Dakota.
You don't know what you're doing.
Don't make me go back alone.
-What? -Stop! Stop.
What is it, man?
What just happened?
Nothing. Nothing.
Just sometimes on V you get a little aftershock.
What'd you see?
Oh, you saw something.
No, just a head rush of the wrong kind.
It's okay.
All right, we'll just-- Come on.
We'll go to bed.
All right? lt's time for bed. Come on.
You go home. Um--
I need to rest tonight.
-l'll behave. -l won't.
Go on. Let La La rest, okay?
You serious?
I'll call you. No big thing.
Good night.
All right, good night.
It's like a werewolf, only a panther?
Yes. A werepanther.
Well, l'm just the same as l always been.
I told you l had secrets, and you said you didn't care.
I thought it was shoplifting or something.
You could've given me a heads-up.
That was the only way I knew how to explain.
You know, I thought you'd understand.
I thought you'd be a man.
I am a man.
I was ready to sign up for a meth dealer's daughter.
-l know what you think of me now. -l didn't mean--
No, just keep blaming me for things that ain't my fault.
Crystal, my brains feel like scrambled eggs.
I got my ass chewed by a vampire, my sister's missing--
Oh, poor you!
All I gotta do is marry my half-brother and let him breed me till l'm old or dead.
I gotta go look for Sookie.
I ain't done talking to you!
-Hey. -Hey.
Why do l feel like l got muscles where l've never had muscles?
-lt's the blood. -lt's you.
Maybe a little.
When we broke up...
...l felt like someone had cut off my arms and my legs.
I can't do nothing without you.
I missed you so much.
I missed you.
Wait, wait. Hey.
If my arms and legs did get cut off...
...and l drank your blood...
...would they grow back?
We got more important things to discuss.
I love you.
That's all that's important to me.
-You save me. -Yeah, but you don't know.
Don't know, don't care. Kiss me.
I killed a trucker.
I'm sure that you had to.
I didn't.
It was an accident.
It was after we broke up...
...and l got too hungry and drained him dead.
But that was before I learned how to do it right.
This is what you think you love.
This is what l really am.
I tried, but l can't live on Tru Blood.
I drink human blood, and l'm not gonna stop.
Drink me.
Talbot adores this one.
I'm having trouble switching tenses. You understand.
Why did you do it?
Talbot never harmed you.
You loved him more than anyone.
So he had to die.
l'm about to put an end to your insignificant existence.
This is not the time to be obscure.
A thousand years ago, you brought your wolves among the Vikings... butcher a human family.
My family.
Apparently, you wanted my father's crown...
...for your vast collection of meaningless shit.
My, my.
To lose the one man l ever loved because you miss your mommy and daddy?
Well, that is a kick in the pants.
There are consequences, even for Russell Edgington.
Life is absurd.
...l'm excited to destroy you.
My loved ones are dead, now Talbot is dead. We're even.
Don't beg for mercy. lt's such a bore.
I couldn't help but notice your expanding ambitions.
You're after the whole world now, aren't you?
Well, l can help you get it.
Eric, you are nothing more than a lump of muscle with a blood grudge.
You got lucky.
You couldn't possibly comprehend what I'm after.
We should begin.
I can offer you the sun.
Oh, daywalking? Oh, the old myth.
That was around when l was turned. You're pathetic.
It's not a myth, not at all.
There have been recent advances. It's been done.
Go on.
Spin your little fairy tale.
I will show you how to do it.
Now tell me you don't want it.
I never said l didn't want it.
It's the ultimate vampire dream, isn't it?
No one could stand against me.
You would be invulnerable.
If l'm wrong...
...kill me tomorrow.
Clever boy.
To tempt me.
Not a good time.
No shit. Bill and Sookie escaped and Yvetta cleaned out the cash. Ow!
I'm so sorry. It was dug in there real good.
Can l get you something to make you feel better?
-l need a drink. -Ah!
-Why did you go to Eric? -l had to ask him a question.
What question?
It doesn't matter.
Look what he did to you.
He's betrayed you, used you, drawn you into danger.
I've made mistakes trying to keep you safe, but l'm nothing like Eric.
Of course you're not.
I love you, Bill, but after this whole Mississippi mess...
...l'd be a crazy woman to trust either of you.
You have feelings for him?
Not "feelings" feelings.
I drank his blood. l can't help it.
It's more than that.
You weren't there on that roof with Godric.
I saw a whole other side to him, and it was real.
When this is over, let's begin again.
We'll be new.
Will we?
I don't know.
I don't know if people change, even when they try.
We can if we want to.
Do you want to?
You know I do.
There's no 1 00 percent guarantee it's gonna work.
-You said that. -And you can always change your mind.
Are you trying to talk me out of it?
You need to know the truth, and l want you to be sure.
I'm sure, I'm sure.
I just want to get it over with.
After work, okay?
-Moron! Get the hell out of my way. -Sorry.
What you looking at?
Mind your own goddamn business!
Jesus Christ, you're ugly!
-Well, that's just rude. -Hey!
You ain't paid your check.
Where's my whiskey? Keep a bottle back here...
...special for me, and all y'all know it!
Give me back my fucking whiskey!
What is his problem?
Let's take it easy, Sam.
Kiss my ass!
Okay. Well, you're hurting. I can tell.
-Let's go and talk about it. -Who do you think you are?
-l'm your friend. -l'm your boss.
This is the liquor talking, Sam. It ain't you.
No, it is me.
All right, get back in the kitchen, you shell-shocked motherfucker.
Sam Merlotte.
You're gonna hate yourself for saying that.
-You apologize to Terry right now. -No.
How could you be so hateful and mean?
He breaks his back for you. He looks up to you. He loves you.
That ain't my problem.
Look, l get that you're in a mood...
...but you're polluting our positive vibes, and it's killing our tips.
Quit scaring the customers off. Go home and pass out.
Let's get this straight. I don't take shit from you.
Okay? You work for me. This is my place.
So you bitches do your job and shut the fuck up.
Nobody talks to me that way, okay?
You wait your own goddamn tables.
Come on, Arlene, let's go. Grab the salt.
-Why? -l forgot to bring mine.
Leave a message.
Sookie, where are you?
Come on, get this. Hut!
Hut! Run!
Kitch, you said you'd come back to the house with me...
...and watch me try on outfits.
-You don't quit now, l'll go without you. -Go ahead.
-Dildo. -Hut!
Fine. l'll wait for you in the parking lot.
Hurry up. Let's go.
Damn. Ugh!
Ugh! Argh!
Go deep!
Let's go, let's go! Pick it up!
Practice ain't over yet!
Come on. Let's go, let's go. Pick it up, pick it up!
What are you doing here at this time of night?
It didn't work, Ms. Fortenberry.
Hoyt doesn't want me.
Oh, darn it all to heck. Dagnabit.
Shitfire. l could wring his big old neck.
How could I bring up a child so willful and dumb?
I even offered him my virginity, and he turned me down flat.
Oh, Summer. I appreciate that.
Even if you broke God's law.
It's my fault. l'm not tall like her.
Can't even reach stuff on my own closet shelf without a grabber.
And l'm not pretty like her.
Oh, don't say such a thing.
She's not even alive, and you are cute as pigs.
I baked for him. I opened up my heart to him.
Even showed him my best underwear.
There's nothing else l could do.
You are not to blame, honey.
That redheaded bloodsucker put a spell on him.
I'm sorry I failed you.
I'll never get over my Bear.
Oh, don't you dare give up.
We are not finished...
...not by a long shot.
Who had the fries?
-l could use some help here. -l can see that.
Too bad l ain't working tonight.
Thanks a lot.
Hey, Tara.
Mind if I sit?
Well, no. l guess not.
How you doing?
Looks like Sam had one too many.
I never saw him this way. Heh, heh.
If you're hungry, you can eat my rings. I didn't touch them.
My stomach ain't what it was, you know?
I used to drink hot sauce straight out of the bottle.
That was a good time.
Need a refill. You want anything?
I know about Eggs.
You must think you're pretty slick.
Yeah, you're the shit.
Got your picture in the paper and a big promotion.
Andy Bellefleur, American hero.
It's all working out so good, right?
But l see what you are.
Liars, murderers.
Jason killed him, and you covered it up.
You're a dirty, dirty cop.
-What are you gonna do? -What can l do?
Nobody cares about Eggs except me.
And l'll miss him for the rest of my life.
But the three of us will always know he didn't deserve to die.
Well, l don't feel like a hero.
I never wanted nothing like this to happen.
It was all Maryann.
He was innocent.
God help me.
If l could do it again, if l could go back and just get ahold of Jason's gun...
...if Eggs had put the knife down, but he was bound and determined to die.
I couldn't stop him. Jason didn't know.
I'm sorry.
Tara, I'm so sorry.
Take some orders.
-l ain't the waitress. -You are now.
Yeah, well, l don't need this. I'll remember it.
The hell you will. The kitchen needs a goddamn ticket.
Do what I tell you and do it right.
-Fuck that! -Pick it up!
You pick it up! Look at yourself.
Drunk and yelling.
-You're nothing but Joe Lee in a Sam suit. -Ungrateful punk.
All I've done is help you, all you've done is been a whiny bitch!
I'm through with you! You're fired!
Pack up your shit. Get the fuck out of my rental.
I lost my temper. It's nothing. I'm sorry.
See? See? l ain't mad anymore.
Did you not hear me?
You're my brother, Sam. You said you--
I'm sick of you. All right? lt's over now.
You're the only one l know. Where am l supposed to go?
I don't care.
All of you, get out of here!
I want this place empty in two minutes.
Merlotte's is fucking closed, goddamn it.
I don't want your fucking money. I want you gone. Now.
-Come on, sweetheart. -l'm gonna grab my purse.
I said, go away.
I tell you what, that dungeon this time did me in.
Well, if you'd stayed put as l asked you to....
I know. But I was sitting there in the dark...
...and l thought, "I am done with this shit."
That's why we need a fresh start. We'll be free of it, I promise you.
What would that be like?
Who would we be if we were normal?
It's hard to even picture it.
Would we live in Gran's house or your house?
Both. We'd be married, happily married.
And l'm not a waitress anymore.
I'm going to college.
No, I'm a real-estate agent, and l'm really rich.
I teach third grade and I love my job.
We'll have a big flower garden.
We grow vegetables.
Tara comes over for dinner...
...and sometimes we double-date with Arlene and Terry.
And l go fishing with Jason.
We don't even know Eric Northman.
Everything is peaceful.
We cast the circle with candles, flame of the spirit.
We draw the circle with salt for protection and purity.
Great Mother, we invoke you.
Blessed be.
Okay, she's here.
You feel her?
I feel something.
My mama passed away a couple years ago.
She didn't approve of me, but we were....
We were real close.
My mama hated me.
Guess that's what got me looking for the real thing.
You sure you're totally healthy?
Gyno ran all the tests. I got the body of a tired teenager.
-That for me? -Oh, God, no. No, no. These are oils.
You'd fall over dead. You need a decoction.
A de-what?
It's like herbal tea.
I'll show you how to make it and when to take it. l wrote it down.
You need to follow the directions exactly.
-Okay? l mean to the letter. -l will.
Well, this'll be ready in a little minute.
Some people like to pray before, you know, help them get focused.
I don't know if God's onboard for this.
Talk to your mother's spirit.
I can't. She'd kill me.
Then talk to the Great Mother.
She's God too.
Oh, just don't step outside the circle.
I never thought of God as a woman...
...but if you're with me tonight, maybe you are.
And, Mama, if you can hear me, would you listen?
Really just listen for once?
You gotta know this is the right thing to do.
It's the only way to be sure...
...that Rene will never pass his sickness on to the world.
...Coby and Lisa and Terry will be safe...
...and l won't have to live my whole life in fear.
And the baby won't have to be a crazed killer.
I don't believe in abortion.
I'm doing what needs to be done.
First time you take it, needs a drop of blood.
Why is that?
Sacrifice. Nothing's free.
...if the spirit is meant to be born...'ll be born and there's nothing we can do about it.
It's in the hands of the Goddess now.
I understand.
Four times a day for up to five days.
-Sip it or shoot it? -Shoot it.
Blessed be.
Tired? Wore out?
Don't give me that shit. Y'all pussies get back to work.
Shut up, man. l'm going home.
Yeah, well, I'm gonna run laps. I'll see you later.
Got nothing left, man.
Well, Grandpa Stackhouse. You come to wish me luck?
You don't need luck, Kitch. You're on V.
I'm not saying l am, but if l was, so what?
V's a illegal substance.
That makes you a criminal...
...a drug abuser and a cheater.
On top of which, you're already a cocky bullshit motherfucker.
Is that right?
I'm taking you down, boy.
I'll tell your coach, your mom and dad, and your principal.
My coach is the one who gave me the V.
-Bullshit. -My parents are paying for it.
My principal, he uses it for his sex life.
They won't care what you say, and you can't prove it.
There are no tests that can trace it.
That ain't fair.
I was an athlete out there.
I didn't get help from nothing or nobody but my team.
That's the way it's supposed to be.
Look at the pros. Everybody's taking something.
No dope, no glory.
My record stands, asshole.
You're no athlete. You never will be.
Well, that's funny.
See, there's a scout from LSU coming to the game...
...especially to hand me a scholarship.
I won't have to stay here and join the chain gang like you.
I'm gonna blow your record to smithereens. Heh, heh.
-lt doesn't count. -Well, tell that to the newspapers.
Fuck you.
La La.
Come with us.
We need you.
Lafayette. Lafayette.
Everything as far as your deficient human eye can see will be mine.
-Pride goeth before a fall. -Ha, ha, ha.
Hit me.
-Don't you see, Miss Stackhouse? -Hit me.
-Your country is begging to be conquered. -You don't know much about America.
Graffiti is the desperate cry of your dying reign.
Your so-called society is disintegrating.
Soon there will be anarchy and then there will be me.
I have a plan.
Will it save her?
What crawled up your butt tonight?
Expressing my feelings.
That a problem for you?
You go off on people all the time.
Cussing, fighting, raising hell.
Feels good, don't it?
But you notice l'm not popular. Not a lot of friends.
-You think l got a lot of friends? -Not after tonight.
Even before tonight?
You had Terry before you jumped all over him.
You had Arlene before you called her a bitch.
Oh, yeah. I heard about it.
You had Tommy before you ripped him a new asshole.
Well, it ain't true.
I got nobody.
You got me.
Do I?
I'm here, aren't I?
Nobody knows me.
It's not like you make it easy.
Yeah, people think of Sam, it's like, "Oh, yeah. Yeah, he's nice.
Yeah, l'll go ask him to do some inconvenient shitty thing...
...and he'll do it, because he's such a good guy."
Or, "Yeah, l'll treat Sam like a cowpie. He won't mind. He's so nice."
Not one person in the world thinks that about me.
"Don't invite Tara to the party. She'll get pissed off and beat the cat."
"Put away the wedding china. Tara's coming over."
-You know what the secret is? -What's the secret?
We're not so different.
-No? -Uh-uh.
-We're not nice. -We're not nice at all.
You feel like dropping by my nasty-ass trailer?
-Yeah. -Yeah?
Let's fuck.
Arlene? Where you at?
Hey, Mama. I'm right here.
Put up that fishing pole and come home.
We're waiting on you.
In a little while.
-Arlene? Arlene? -Arlene?
Arlene? Jesus God, please wake up.
Can you hear me?
Of course I can hear you. One of the kids sick?
Oh, my God.
-Oh, my God. -l'm calling 91 1 .
No, wait.
Oh, you don't have to do that. I'm okay. I can tell.
I'll get cleaned up, and you can take me to the hospital.
Can you bring me that box of pads under the bathroom sink?
-lt looks like you're dying. -l'm not.
But l'm sorry, honey. I think we're losing the baby.
-Don't tell me that. No, no, no. -Shh, shh.
-No, no. -Shh, shh, shh.
Better hurry, now. We'll cry later, okay?
Did you find her?
No. And l don't know where else to look or what else to do.
Some fucking cop l am.
-l was gonna go. -l don't wanna break up.
Don't play with me.
I'm not playing. I mean it.
No one in this town is what they're supposed to be.
So you turn into a panther. What the hell? That ain't so bad.
Besides, l love you.
-You love a girl from Hotshot. -Not anymore. You ran away.
I tried, but l'm going back, and l want you to come with me.
-We gotta stop that raid. -Why?
Because all those innocent kids.
I saw a boy there once...
...he was making awful noises and chewing on something dead.
That's my double cousin Bufort. He ain't right, but he never hurt nobody.
We can't go against the DE-fucking-A.
We don't got no choice.
Felton and Daddy are crazy. I've heard them say it.
They will light that whole place on fire and everybody in it.
It'll be Waco all over again.
I'm going.
With or without you.
You seriously expect me to believe she's fairy?
A species extinct for millennia? If they ever existed at all.
You think I wouldn't notice if there were fairies bouncing around?
I didn't say she was full fairy.
She's a human-fairy hybrid...
...which helps save her from detection.
She may well be the last of her kind...
...your only chance to walk in the sun.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Drink her blood. You'll see.
Now, that's just nuts.
Nothing in my blood is a supernatural sunscreen for y'all.
Why would you think that?
Sookie, you're wrong.
-What Eric says is true. -No.
I never told you.
Bill's experienced it for himself.
Oh, well, that's reassuring.
A testimonial from the mendacious Mr. Compton.
A new beginning? We'll start over?
I can't force you to believe it. You'll have to see for yourself.
Why are you doing this to me?
We've tried fighting him. We'll never win.
If he develops a taste for your blood, he may let you live.
-Bill, please. -So?
-l'm intrigued. -Excellent.
I hate you. l hate you all.
-On one condition. -Whatever you like.
You go first.
I'd love to.
Please stop worrying.
It's just God's way of telling us this child wasn't meant to be.
Didn't you read that in some of your books?
Yeah. Yeah, l did.
But l never thought it would happen to us.
I know. It happens to a lot of people.
You shouldn't have been working. I should've been doing everything.
Life goes the way it goes, okay?
We just have to accept it and move on.
Oh, honey. Don't cry.
The results are back.
Doctor, please tell my guy everything's gonna be okay.
-Yeah, it's gonna be okay. -Thank the Lord.
Arlene, you may need to spend a few days in bed.
Whatever you say, doc.
I'll make sure she does. I don't wanna lose her too.
Oh, you haven't lost anything.
Baby's still onboard.
You got a strong little critter in there.
Now, what other fairy secrets are you keeping, Miss Stackhouse?
Do you have wings? Do you...?
Don't do it. What if it doesn't work?
Oh, it'll work.
Come on. What's this?
Nothing. It's the bleeds.
You know I love you more when you're cold and heartless.
Shall we?
Do, let's.
One caveat, gentlemen.
If you drain her completely, that's the last fairy blood you'll ever drink.
-Good point. -We are schooled.
Onward to adventure.
If this is you trying to help me, thanks for nothing.
Oh, for God's sake.
Unchain me. I have to feed Sookie.
It's fairies.
Fucking fairies. Who knew?
Don't let them see.
Let me go or she'll die.
My hands are shaking.
I feel like a little child.
Thousands of years of night.
You can't know.
What are you waiting for?
I have to feed Sookie. She needs my blood now!
Pam, let me go!
It's glorious.
It's sublime.
Silver. You traitor.
Fucking madman!
Be brave.
We'll die together.
