True Blood (2008–2014): Season 6, Episode 7 - In the Evening - full transcript

Eric pledges allegiance to Bill in a last-resort effort to save Nora. A tragedy close to home forces Sam to ignore Alcide's warning and return to Bon Temps. Jessica shows her gratitude to ...

Johnny, those go to gen pop, these go on the trucks.
Don't get caught, you hear?
Sneaky fucks.
They're putting hep V in the blood supply.
What's that? What's hep V?
It's this.
I'm sorry, Nora.
Go back in, find Pam,
tell her not to drink the Tru Blood.
I'll come back for you, I promise.
- But just remem-- - I got it. Go.
What the hell?
Lockdown. Secure the premises.
Whoa, Morris, what's going on?
Northman escaped.
God damn it! That tricky motherfucker!
- Stackhouse, you get to gen pop. - Yes, sir.
Whew. Gen pop.
That's everything.
Hey! Hey, hey, hold on a minute.
- What? - Gotta do a security check.
Reports of vampires in the area.
I'm on a schedule, though. Hurry it up.
Yeah, I know.
Oh, shit.
All set!
* When you came in the air went out *
* And every shadow filled up with doubt *
* I don't know who you think you are *
* But before the night is through *
* I want to do bad things with you *
* I'm the kind to sit up in his room *
* Heart sick and eyes filled up with blue *
* I don't know what you've done to me *
* But I know this much is true *
* I want to do bad things with you *
* Ow, ooh *
* I want to do real bad things with you. *
Let's go!
I thought that you would be chained up.
I was, but I got a fan in the psych department.
What are you doing here?
Eric sent me to help you.
Eric sent you?
- To help me? - Yes, he did.
And if you want me to save your ass,
you might wanna tone it down with the attitude.
I'm all ears.
They're gonna start giving us Tru Blood, but you cannot drink it.
There's hep V in it.
What the hell is that?
I don't know, but it is not good.
Nora has it.
Who else knows?
It's just you and me.
Good, keep it that way.
Tell Tara and Jessica, but fuck everyone else.
Okay, I know that being charitable isn't real vampire-like,
but don't we want to save our kind?
If every vampire stops feeding,
those pervy fucks'll know we're onto them.
Our only chance of fixing this shit show
is if they don't suspect us.
Of course.
How are they treating you in here?
Like a princess. Can't you tell?
I got this.
I can sneak you into gen pop.
Severed arm. Not bad.
But too obvious.
No, just get yourself back in there.
I'll see you soon enough.
I don't know what you are.
All I know is I saw Sookie stake you and you survived.
But if you are God...
please heal her for me.
I feel hot.
How is that possible?
Give her your blood.
No, no, please. It's Lilith's blood.
- I won't drink it. - Sister, please.
- No, brother. - Sister, you have to--
I'd rather die than have Lilith's blood.
You can't blame her. You saw what the blood did to us.
And I don't care about that.
- Just do it. - I can't do it, Eric.
- Do it. - This is her dying wish.
We have to honor it.
Leave us!
Welcome back
to elocution classes for spreading the Gospel.
Chapter Three.
Drop one octave and repeat, "God is good."
God is good.
"God is our savior."
God is...
Why are there no guards?
Remember to be strong, yet not assertive.
Oh, no.
What did they do to you?
Oh, Truman Burrell.
Oh, God.
You were a decent, decent man,
and your commitment to this cause was whole,
and it was pure.
But these monsters prey on the pure.
Know that your death was not in vain...
for it will galvanize the forces against this evil we fight.
This was part of God's plan.
And God...
is... good.
Thank you for coming so quickly, Senator.
What in the hell happened?
I think it's pretty clear.
Well, how'd they get to him?
There were more men on this place than Fort Knox.
Are you really still surprised
by what they're capable of?
Well, not surprised, just disappointed.
I thought we were making progress.
We are.
That is the biblical irony in all this.
The things we are learning every day,
they are just shy of miracles.
We are this close
to bringing Truman's vision to light.
I don't see that happening now,
not with this lieutenant governor sitting in his seat.
Oh, no.
I am not letting that RINO with his folksy bullshit
step one foot near this office.
That's why I brought you here, to help me.
No one can know Truman's gone.
how do you cover up something like this?
I know you know fixers,
professionals you keep on retainer
to cover up your seedy lifestyle.
Call 'em.
Have them move the late, great governor's body away
and dispose of it.
And I don't wanna know how,
but I do hear acid is effective.
We release a statement saying the compound was attacked,
but Truman escaped unharmed and is continuing to govern
from an undisclosed location.
We will wipe this place down,
and then you will cover for him in legislature.
And I will be his presence at the facility
and on all matters vampire.
How long you expect us to pull this off?
Tainted Tru Blood will be on grocery shelves any day now.
Hep V will spread like wildfire.
We're not talkin' long.
Make the call.
Of course, David.
You know, when I hired you to consult on my last campaign,
I knew there was something there,
but this, Sarah--
this is quite impressive.
Just you wait, Senator.
When God's message is this clear,
I am a truly unstoppable woman.
Well, this is a first.
Waking up with a man in broad daylight.
You just wrote our wedding vows.
One of many.
You don't think just because we had sex
that that means I'm agreeing to marry you.
Well, I just assumed
the way you gave yourself over so freely--
Gave myself over?
Yeah, I thought you were amenable to my proposal.
Have you not been with a woman
since that stopped being the way it worked?
Yeah, of course.
- Not like that, but-- - Like what?
With someone who actually enjoys herself?
We have the vote, too, you know.
Okay, don't be like that.
You know this wasn't just sex, is it?
This isn't just some simple infatuation.
It never is.
God damn you, Terry.
What is that?
- This grass wasn't meant to be dug up yet. - Hmm?
Maybe now you'll rest, baby.
Maybe now.
My friend--
I think something terrible's happened to her husband.
What are you talking about?
My friend Arlene. She's crying in the cemetery.
I have to go to her.
I'll come back for you just as soon as I can.
- How do I get outta here? - Use your light.
You've had my blood. It'll work.
Sookie? Where did you come from?
I just heard.
Arlene, I'm so sorry.
What happened?
They shot him.
- Who? - I don't know.
All I know is that one minute
he was struggling with his demons, you know,
and they were getting the better of him,
so I called this vampire friend of Holly's
and he glamored away all the bad stuff
and then he was doing much better.
I mean, he was the old Terry,
and I got a glimmer of what it was gonna be like--
life with him happy.
And it was--
oh, it was the best feeling I've ever had.
Oh, my God! What am I gonna do, Sookie?
How am I gonna tell my kids?
Listen to me, Arlene.
You gotta tell your kids.
They need to know what happened to their daddy.
I don't know if I can say the words.
Look at me.
You're one of the strongest people I know,
and I don't know why you've been tested the way you have,
but you always get through,
and I'm gonna be there to make sure that you do,
just like you're gonna be there for Coby,
Lisa and Mikey, all right?
Yeah, okay.
- Hello? - Hey, Lafayette.
Hey, man, I just wanted to make sure
everything was all right after the other night.
No, not really.
Shit, did they come for you?
Sam, Terry's dead.
- Hey. - Hey.
Call your mother and have her come get you.
Why, what happened?
I gotta go back to Bon Temps.
It's not safe for you there.
Why is it safe for you?
It's not.
My friend died.
Not being there is not an option.
How are they?
A little afraid.
They know something's up, but they're all right.
I think they just want their mama.
Here you go, Andy.
You and your cagey phone calls.
What the fuck was in that box?
- What did he tell you? - Hey!
Nothing! I swear, I told you everything!
You're a liar and a voodoo queer.
Arlene. Hey, darlin', hey.
I know what you're about to do is real tough.
How would you feel about me being there with you when you talk to the kids?
Oh, yeah.
That-- that might be good.
- You okay? - Yeah.
I guess I should've seen that one coming.
What is the box she's talking about?
I didn't know then, and after this telenovela,
I sure as fuck don't wants to know now.
But someone should see it before Arlene, though.
No doubt.
You and I's got an errand to run.
Maybe this time it'll be your ass that gets kicked.
Oh, great.
In here.
What are you doing here?
I came to--
Come here.
I came to help you.
- Come sit. - What?
I'm gonna get you out of here,
and I ain't gonna let you down.
You don't have to do that.
Yeah, I do.
Jess, my thoughts ain't always so clear,
but my heart, it ain't never been so clear
that I wanna do right by you.
I mean, you don't have to get me outta here.
You don't have that "Stockholders' syndrome," do ya?
No, I just--
I just sorta know how it's gonna work out, and...
I'm okay with it.
There is nothing okay
with the shit that's been going on in here.
I was there yesterday...
when they, um, tried to get the vampire to have sex with you.
It made me sick to watch you go through that.
You will never, never suffer again.
Jason, you cannot stop
bad things from happening to me.
We don't live in that kind of world.
I'm sorry.
All you can do is go on being
the sweet, wonderful man that you are.
But if you really wanna do right by me...
there's something I could use your help with.
Just tell me what it is.
That vampire...
the one who wouldn't--
I'd really like to thank him for that.
Like, face-to-face.
I'll go get him for you.
Thank you.
I'll be outside if you have any questions.
Life insurance?
This was issued just three days ago.
He knew it was coming.
Shit, he had the whole motherfucking thing planned.
And pretty well. This is a lot of money.
How can you do it?
You do it when you believe it's the best thing for everybody.
When is leaving your family behind ever the best thing?
I don't know, Sook.
I don't know.
You wanna stay for a beer, maybe a couple?
Thanks, but I gotta get back.
The problem I have is I've fucked up so many times,
ain't nothing I can say that's gonna mean that much to ya.
That's my cross to bear.
You see that fresh grass
growing over there on that little hillside?
That's old Mrs. Reed's land.
Yeah, except not no more.
She met a fella and moved to North Dakota.
All I'm saying is is that the light on that hillside
makes them 'maters taste sweeter than anything I've ever had.
There's this little stream running through there
that's warm enough to bathe in.
Why don't you move there, then?
You don't have to go back.
Yes, I do.
I know you think your old man's a sad case
'cause he lives out here by himself,
but I'm happier this way.
Yeah, that's for you.
No, son, that's for both of us.
This pack life ain't for us.
One day you're gonna realize it.
See ya, Dad.
Oh, honey.
Come here. Come here, baby.
- Mom. - Oh, gosh, are you okay?
I'm okay, I'm okay.
- Let me see you, let me see you. - I'm okay, Mom.
- I'm okay. - Okay.
Yeah. This is Sam.
He's taken really good care of me.
How do you do, Mrs. Wright?
Thank you for looking after her.
Um, Mom, can I... just have a second?
I'm not gonna mention that I know anything about y'all.
Yeah, I know.
But I'm not gonna forget you either.
So, if you need anything, I'm around.
Here's my home number.
Maybe I'll use it.
I hope you do.
Be careful.
You, too.
Get in there.
Remember me?
Sorry, what is this?
Um, you wanna sit?
Just excuse me a minute.
Jason, I can't thank you enough.
Ah, of course, Jess.
You said you wanted my help, so here I am.
The thing is,
what I'm asking is for a little privacy.
Right, okay. Yeah.
You got it.
Yeah, I'll just be...
- It's Jessica. - I remember.
You know, when they brought me in here...
I had done just about the worst thing
I've ever done, as a human or a vampire,
and I thought that if I was a monster,
then we all must be.
But then you did something so selfless.
Why didn't you do it?
It would've been so much easier for you if you would've just--
I believe that vampires choose to forfeit their souls.
I mean, I'm not saying I'm a saint, but...
I made a different choice.
So what did they do to you?
Oh, my God.
- I'm sorry. - It's not your fault.
James, um...
there's something I have to tell you.
We're all gonna die in here.
- Yeah, I sorta figured that. - I don't mean eventually.
I mean we're all gonna die soon.
They are putting something called hepatitis V
in the Tru Blood,
so whatever you do, don't drink it.
Don't you have any good news at all?
I feel like a fool.
I never really bought the whole immortality thing.
I always knew I'd go at some point,
but now that it's so soon, I--
there's just so much I wish I could've done.
Like what?
What would you do if you still could?
Hell, I don't know.
I'd probably find my dad
and tell him I was proud to be his son.
What about you?
I don't know. I gue-- um...
Oh, God, I don't know. There's probably so much.
But right now, in this moment...
all I'm really wantin' is for you to make love to me.
It's ironic, huh?
I've never been with a vampire
and I always wondered what all the fuss was about.
- Jessica... - It's okay if you don't wanna.
I don't want you making a decision like this out of fear.
It's not fear.
Everything about you is good and decent,
and you have this humanity just coursing through you.
And in my last days, that's what I wanna know.
That's what I wanna leave the world feeling a part of.
So you can daywalk, too, huh?
- Yeah. - How?
I'll explain later.
You think I wanted to come here, Bill?
I had nowhere else I could turn.
I will do anything you ask.
Just tell me what it is and I'll do it.
But please...
give her your blood.
And what if it doesn't work?
Do you need to hear me say the words?
I believe you. I believe in you.
I believe that you are divine.
Shortly after you left here the other night,
I went into...
a kind of state.
I started having visions--
visions that have come to pass.
I can see the future, Eric.
But there was one vision that has yet to manifest.
I saw a white circular room
in which Pam, Jessica, Tara, and you--
y'all meet the sun in that room, Eric.
That's why I'm going to get Warlow.
Now, you know who Warlow is?
I don't care who Warlow is.
Just tell me what you want from me.
He is both faerie and vampire.
It is his blood that is allowing me
to walk in the sun, not Lilith's.
But if I am to stop that vision from becoming manifest,
then we have to get him and take him with us.
You were in the vision, Eric.
One way or another,
you are gonna be in that room when the roof opens.
If you come with me, maybe we can stop it.
I'll go back with you. You have my word.
If you help Nora.
Good, good.
Little bit more.
We had to try.
I know, brother.
I know.
Is it working? Do you feel anything?
No, I don't think so.
No? Nothing?
His blood might work.
No, Eric, listen. Listen.
Everything the Book of Lilith has said has been true.
Warlow's blood can help me walk in the sun,
but it cannot heal me.
It will.
- Go. - Eric...
Off I go, then.
You ready for this?
About as ready as Big Pharma can make a man.
Hey, y'all,
Holly told me where you're coming from,
and I'm thinking now is not the best time.
Why are you hiding the tequila?
- Okay. - Huh, Holly?
Are you all right?
Oh, hey.
Yeah, I'm all right. I'm a little better.
You know, before, it was like someone was...
scalping my brain away one slice at a time
and plucking out my heart
with one of those little crab forks.
But now, thanks to this,
it just feels like someone's crushing my windpipe.
Okay, let's see if we can do something about that, too.
Sweetness, I got a family recipe
that's gonna take the pain away in no time at all.
Come on, Mama gonna take care of you.
- I'm thinking no talking. - Okay, I can walk.
- Good idea. - Come on, I got you.
So, I take it the talk with the kids didn't go so good?
It went as good as it could.
Arlene did a good job.
Yeah, I think the kids are holding up all right.
Portia's keeping 'em occupied
while Arlene does her thing.
This is a weird day.
I'm Sookie. Who are you?
Oh, I'm Adilyn,
Andy's daughter.
- Hey, Mom. - Hi.
Oh, hey, my boys are here.
Oh, honey, come here.
Adilyn Braelyn Charlaine Danika,
this here is Sookie,
and this is Wade and Rocky.
They're Holly's boys.
- What's up? - Hi.
I'm sorry about your cousin.
- And your sisters. - Thanks.
Holy fuck.
Get upstairs right now with your Aunt Portia.
- Right now! - Come on, y'all.
Come on, y'all. Move.
Mrs. Bellefleur, I'm terribly sorry for your loss.
I was very fond of Terry.
I was proud to be able to call him my kin.
Y'all, I'm wasted.
This shit's real... isn't it?
You're walking in the daylight.
I am.
Fuck me.
Vampire Bill.
I'm also incredibly sorry for your loss.
Are ya?
My firstborn died an early death,
and there is no greater pain in this world.
Except for losing three.
I understand one of your daughters survived.
She did.
I'm sure she's a great comfort to you right now.
I love her more than anything.
I feel the same way about my youngest, Jessica.
As fathers, there is no duty more sacred
than to protect them.
And make sure they live a long and happy life,
don't you agree?
I do.
I wish you and your daughter the very best.
Like... wise.
You mind telling me what's going on
with all these fuckin' vampires
walkin' around in the daytime?
I don't know, but it ain't about that today.
It's about Arlene and her kids.
Can I have a word?
It was.
I'm so fucking glad I took my beta-blockers.
What do you want, Bill?
You obviously had what you needed from Warlow.
Yes, and you took him.
And I can't save my progeny without more of his blood.
So, let me get this right.
You're willing to sacrifice me and/or Warlow,
who are real, by the way,
for the sake of hypothetical progeny that you saw in some vision?
You tell me what's hypothetical about Tara...
or Jessica or Pam or Eric.
- They're your friends and-- - Pam's my friend?
Come on, Sookie.
As we speak, they're lying in wait in a death camp.
How do you know that?
Because Eric was there and he escaped.
It'd be foolish of you to let your anger at me
get in the way of protecting the ones that you love.
You forsake them,
and there'll be many more days like this
in the not-too-distant future.
Are you saying that if I refuse you,
I'm killing my friends?
What I'm saying
is that there will be blood on both our hands.
Bring me Warlow, and soon.
Thank God.
I was just starting to feel confessional.
Shall I bring in Somchai?
That won't be necessary.
Not hungry?
Not today.
With the rations of blood you've been provided,
I find that hard to believe.
As a student of Freud,
I'd have thought you'd have a better grasp
on the whole subject of appetite.
Actually-- ahem,
it's been the focus of most of my scholarship.
So when I say I'm not hungry because I'm horny,
you get it.
Often, when one is denied sexual satiation,
her appetite for food increases,
not the other way around.
Who said I wasn't satiated?
You'd be surprised what a girl can accomplish...
in solitary.
How would you rate
your sexual appetite compared to--
I was a whore in my human life.
It wasn't a coincidence.
And how would you say that manifested
in your vampire life?
For one, I fuck a lot.
Secondly, I own a bar, Fangtasia,
where humans come to get off.
I believe its success is due, in large part,
to my astute understanding of human desire--
the desire to be devoured
or enveloped by a warm, hungry animal,
or obliterated
one juicy bite at a time.
But you must hear all kinds of deviant shit in this office.
My sexual knowledge is probably old hat to you.
I, um--
I'm very interested
in your specific knowledge.
So you want inside...
my head?
Very much, yes.
How deep do you wanna go?
I'll let you get in there,
but only if you let me inside gen pop.
I think that can be arranged.
Hey, Stackhouse.
Guess what. I got a secret.
Well, I'm not interested.
This one you'll like.
The governor's dead.
Which means all that leverage you had?
It's gone. Gentlemen?
- Get him. - Hey, get your fucking hands off me.
Tony, don't do this.
What the fuck?!
Throw his ass in female gen pop one.
No. No!
- Come on! - I thought we were friends, man!
- Have fun with your sluts! - That's enough.
- Let's go! - Fuck you!
No, no, no, no, no!
Ah, no!
Back off, bitches.
Ladies, please.
He's mine.
It's done.
Sam Merlotte and the girl are dead.
What about the pup?
I gave Emma to Martha.
It was the right thing to do.
They'll stay away and we'll lose this heat on us,
which should make you happy.
It does.
'Course I'd be a lot happier
if you weren't lying through your motherfuckin' teeth right now.
- What? - That's right.
Be a doll and bring the ladies out,
will ya, Tiffany?
Look who I found...
very much alive.
Motherfucking liar.
Fuckin' liar!
Godric, whatever magic you possess,
can you use it now, please?
I beg of you, Godric, please, can you...
just give her one more chance like you--
like you've done before?
It was you who gave it to me.
You-- you who saw something in me,
found me.
Do you remember?
Of course I remember it.
Your Majesty.
You look pale.
Paler than usual.
The plague, it has made food scarce,
as you can imagine.
This outbreak grieves me greatly also.
Have you heard of the Lady Gainsborough?
I have heard her name
in reference to an... affection
you two share, sire.
Then you've heard correctly.
She's a woman of strong will
and as such, she's currently in London
tending to the poor bastards dying of the pestilence.
- Oh, how commendable. - It's bloody madness.
The woman has a death wish,
and I would let her die of her impudence
if I didn't find her presence in my bedchamber such a necessity.
I see.
I'm not sure you do.
Her insubordination makes for bed sport
the likes of which I have never known.
She has a great value to you.
Which is why I need you
to promptly remove her from her vile situation.
And upon her return...
I shall see that you are fed exceedingly well.
Your Majesty.
Are there any upstairs?
- Yeah. - Easy.
Are you mad?
Can't you see that we're quarantined?
I'm looking for Lady Gainsborough.
You're too late. The pustules have formed.
Show me to her.
On your own head be it.
Milady, I'm Eric Northman,
a friend of the king's.
I will take you somewhere more peaceful.
I am not long.
The king insists you rest in better conditions.
I do not want to die in his presence.
What of your house in Surrey?
His house in Surrey.
My death shall be my own.
He called you stubborn...
but he has that confused with courage, it would seem.
How are you so brave?
I am...
You have the look of destiny about you.
Let me take you to my father.
He can heal you.
Can he fully, though?
I would not want to live like this.
You will live fully...
and forever.
I promise.
And so we end as we began.
Only this time, there is no Godric to heal me.
Only you to comfort me.
Who's gonna comfort me for centuries to come?
Pamela and Willa.
You saw in them what you saw in me.
Yeah, but you will never be replaced.
Let them walk beside you.
They want to.
Just as I did.
But I promised you forever.
Brother, listen.
I only ever asked to live fully.
And you gave me that.
No. No, no, no.
Please don't-- don't leave me.
Don't leave me. Don't--
Nora, don't leave me.
Please don't leave me.
Please don't leave me!
* When the day is done *
* I'm looking for a woman *
* Oh, but the girl don't come *
* So don't let her *
* Play you for a fool *
* She don't show no pity, baby *
* No, no, she don't make no rules *
* Oh, I need your love *
* Oh, oh, I need your love *
* Ooh, yeah, I need your love *
* I've got to have *
* I've got to have *
* Baby, I've got to have your love. *
