True Blood (2008–2014): Season 7, Episode 10 - Thank You - full transcript

Sookie weighs a future with and without Bill. Eric and Pam struggle with their uncomfortable partnership with Mr. Gus. Sam makes a choice, while Andy comes upon an unexpected inheritance.

You wanted to talk.
This room, it's where I first called on you.
- Where I met your grandmother, your brother. - If you're feeling this nostalgic, Bill...
...I gotta ask, what the fuck?
Because to my mind, nostalgia and suicide don't mix.
You deserve everything, Sookie.
You deserve the world.
What if all I want right now is to see you live?
You have to look to your future.
What does it look like with me in it?
I don't wanna have this conversation. We've been down this path before.
That's because for us, all roads lead to this path.
How many times have you sworn me off?
How many times have you promised yourself no more vampires?
And yet here we are again.
You're choosing to die because I have no self-respect? That makes a lot of sense.
- That is not what I'm saying. - Then what are you saying?
Because I swear to God, I'm afraid that you're gonna drop dead any minute...
...and I'll never know why the fuck you're doing this.
Why are you doing this?
This disease, Sookie...'s made me feel more human than I've ever felt before.
Even when I was human.
On the way over here tonight, I stopped by my family's graves.
Caroline's, Sarah's, Thomas's and mine.
Mine is a lie.
I should be with them.
It's where I belong.
- No. - Sookie.
We're born, we grow, and we learn...
...and we have children.
Maybe we get to meet our children's children...
...but then we pass on and that-- That is a life.
And if we stayed together, I would be denying you the best parts of that.
Do you understand?
Even just a little?
I've seen you around children...
...seen how you light up around them.
I would hate for you to never know what that feels like, to have children of your own.
Then why don't you just break up with me?
If I can't swear you off, why don't you swear me off?
Because I can't.
Because I love you too much.
I want you to help me.
Help you?
What do you fairies call it?
The ultimate kindness.
You want me to kill you?
Are you fucking kidding me?
Use your light on me and you will be done with vampires forever.
If you don't, there's gonna be a line of suitors from here to the gates of hell...
...trying to call you theirs.
Do you realize what you're asking me to do?
Sookie, what you are is extraordinary.
But so is being human.
All I'm asking is the same question that you've been asking...
...every day since the first day that we met.
It's what you've always wanted.
A normal life.
Show me the true death.
And you'll be setting us both free.
- I think you should go. - Sweetheart--
Please don't make me rescind your invitation.
Will you at least think about it?
Believe me, I'm thinking about it.
I'm so sorry, Eric.
- Unchain her. - What?
Unchain her, Pamela.
Are you just winging it, or do you have a plan here?
- I'm setting her free. - What?
You are?
If you don't want to do it, I'll do it myself.
Thank you.
Oh, don't get too excited, sweetheart.
We're gonna catch up with you.
In case you've forgotten, Eric, the whole world's looking for her.
If Gus doesn't know about the tunnel, why not crawl out with her?
Because, Pamela Swynford De Beaufort...
...we are going to kill Mr. Gus.
And we're gonna steal New Blood from him.
I've tried trusting, I've tried sharing.
And it's just not fucking working for me.
Now, are you with me or not?
Oh, I am so fucking with you.
I thought you might be.
I'm gonna remove your gag, and you're not gonna make a peep, understood?
Now Pam's gonna feed you some of her blood.
Open your mouth.
Now, with her blood inside you...
...she can always find you, so long as you're frightened.
Are you frightened?
Good. You should be.
Because wherever you go, whoever you talk to, whatever you do...
...everybody wants you dead.
Which means that, as much as Pamela and I hate you...
...we're the best friends you got.
So talk to no one, find a safe place and wait for her to find you.
- Mr. Gus! - Help!
- Sarah escaped! - Help us!
How'd she get out of here?
There's a tunnel.
- You let her go? - We sure did.
Kill them!
- Let him go. - I thought you were gonna kill him.
Humans are slow.
My condolences, fellas.
There you are.
Sarah Newlin eating garbage.
Who'd have thunk it?
You wanna know why I'm here?
Sure, I'll bite. Why are you here?
This is where Eric turned Willa.
If I didn't know that, how come you do?
It was in Bill Compton's book.
Hmm. It was. Must've skipped that chapter.
To be honest, I kind of skimmed the whole thing...
...looking for the parts that were about me.
I'm a horrible person, aren't I?
Yes, dear. You are.
Which is why I think...
...I would make a kick-ass vampire.
Don't you?
- You're serious? - As a heart attack.
Will you turn me?
Absolutely not.
But I would work my ass off for you.
I have spent my entire adult life...
...trying to be the best woman behind the man I could be...
...and maybe the problem all along... I was meant to be the woman...
...behind the woman.
So you're just gonna be a lesbian now.
If you made me a vampire, yes.
I would do things for you.
Or you could do things to me.
However you wanna play it.
I figured, since Tara's gone-- Unh!
Don't you dare talk to me about Tara.
Do you understand me?
I wouldn't let you go down on me for a billion dollars.
And as for me going down on you...
...there's not enough money in the world.
But there is one thing I want from you.
Your blood.
I haven't been vaccinated yet.
Howdy, Vampire Bill.
Hoyt Fortenberry.
Thought you'd moved to Alaska.
Yes, sir, I did, but I came back for my mama's funeral.
I know.
I think I'm here to stay.
Well, I for one am glad to hear it.
Yeah. Did you get that bag of blood I left for you?
I did fin a bag of blood, but I didn't know it was from you.
I don't want you to die, Bill.
That's what I came to say.
- I know you don't, sweetheart. - But also...
...I wanted to say that I will be fine.
On the way over, I thought about it...
...and that's what I would want to hear from me...
...if I was you.
So that's what I came up with.
I'm never gonna understand why you're doing this...
...but one way or another, I'll figure out a way to accept it.
And I will, Bill.
I will be okay.
Thank you, Jess.
That's exactly what I needed to hear.
- You're warm. - Yeah, I know.
- Thank you for bringing her home. - Yes, sir.
And if there's anything I can do for you...
Your decision to stay...
...I assume that Jessica's part of the reason for that?
She's the whole reason.
I apologize in advance for being presumptuous...
...but I guess as a dying man...
...I get to take certain liberties.
You think that you might... day get around to asking Jessica to marry you?
Whoa, Bill. Oh, my God.
Hoyt, I'm so, so sorry.
- No, it's really early to be having those con-- - Yes, sir, I do.
What do you say, Jess?
You wanna make an honest man out of me one day?
Hoyt, could I have a minute with Bill alone?
We need to talk.
- Jess, I'm sorry, but-- - Quiet.
Just listen, okay?
I wish that I hadn't spent an embarrassingly huge amount of my childhood...
...dreaming about my wedding day.
I wish that I was above all of that, but I am not.
I might be a vampire, Bill, but I am also a girl.
And what just happened down there...
...isn't anything like what I dreamed about.
Jess, he loves you.
He doesn't know me.
His memories of me start yesterday.
That's more than enough time to fall in love with someone.
When it's real, it can happen in an instant.
May I explain myself?
You can try.
I'd already been made vampire before my human daughter Sarah got wed.
So it goes without saying that I didn't get to give her away.
Never even met the man she married.
I don't know how much time I have left, Jess.
But it's not gonna be very long.
And I guess I...
I just wanted to know that you'd be spoken for...
...before I leave this place.
Could I get a hug?
Of course you can.
Would you mind waiting up here...
...while Hoyt and I have a little talk?
What are you gonna tell him?
That if he does really want to marry me...
...I wonder if it could be today.
- Tara, wait up! - I can't! Why don't you hurry up?
Because it's too slippery.
Wait up! You're too fast!
If the rain did to your hair what it does to mine, you'd be fast, too.
Oh, dear. Now, you sit down.
How many times have I told you girls...
...when you get caught in the rain like that... call me and I'll come and pick you up?
Come on, Gran. It was fun.
Plus, we get hot chocolate this way.
Oh, you got me figured out, do you?
Thanks, Miss Stackhouse.
- You're both welcome. - Thank you, Gran.
I'm gonna go fetch y'all some clothes. Back in a jiff.
Wonder when Jason's gonna get home.
Hope Miss Stackhouse pick out something cute for me.
You like Jason?
Stay out of my head, Sookie Stackhouse!
I'm sorry, I can't help it.
- It ain't fair. - I said I'm sorry.
Who do you like?
I don't like anybody.
You know my secret. You have to tell me yours.
If I liked anybody, I would...
...but boys are nasty.
They think nasty thoughts.
So you don't ever wanna get married and have a family?
Of course I do, but I don't see how I'm ever going to, is all.
Stop it! I don't want to hear you talking like that.
You can have any kind of life you want.
You can persevere.
Anything you want, Sookie, you are entitled to it.
There are no limits on you if you don't put them on yourself.
I need to know that you understand me.
I understand.
If I'm not around, you hold her to it, Tara.
Would you do that for me?
Yes, Miss Stackhouse.
Hi. Um, is Jason here? I'm his sister, Sookie.
I'm Brigette. It's nice to meet you. Heh.
- So Jason's still sleeping, but, um, come on in. - Thanks.
I'm sorry if this is awkward, but, um, I kind of need to speak to him.
Why should it be awkward?
Because you're wearing his boxers and whatnot.
- We didn't sleep together or anything. Heh. - Seriously?
Broke up with Hoyt last night. Can't believe she thinks I'd do that.
Do you know Hoyt?
Although, I'll be damned if Jason isn't the sweetest man I ever mat.
You're Hoyt's girlfriend from Alaska?
Up till last night I was, yeah.
Should I not ask?
Do you want to wake him up or should I?
Oh, you don't wake Jason up without coffee.
I looked in his cupboards, but all I could find was instant.
That's because he's disgusting.
Wake up. I got coffee.
- Careful, it's hot. - What's going on?
It's Bill.
He asked me to kill him with my light ball.
What the hell?
He says he wants me to have a normal life with kids and everything.
But with him in the world, I never will.
- What are you thinking? - I don't know what to think.
He looks so sick.
And I feel so awful.
I mean, he deserves to be put out of his misery...
...and lord knows I've been back and forth on this so many times, I can't count.
Is being what I am...
...a curse or a blessing?
But now that somebody's actually asking me to give it up...
...I ain't so sure that I want to.
And even then...
...I ain't sure that I could...
...even if I did know I wanted to.
- Sook, are you--? - What?
Are you asking for advice from me?
No, not really.
Good, because I got no idea what to tell you to do.
But I can promise you this.
I will love you either way.
I love you too.
- Oh, that's me. - I'll get it!
Son of a bitch.
- Uh, that's Brigette. - Yeah, we met.
Um, Jason? It's Hoyt.
Listen, I got kind of a strange question for you, considering how we left things last night.
Jessica said we were...
- Hey, uh, Sook? - Jessica?
Jason already on the phone with Hoyt?
Don't even worry about it, man.
Will you be my best man?
Your best man?
Um, you wouldn't happen to have anything that could pass for, um, a wedding dress, would you?
What the hell went on last night?
- You ready, green thumb? - Oh, yeah.
Oh, here, let me.
- Oh, thanks. - I gotcha.
- Throw those in the trunk? - Uh, back seat.
Sook, listen, uh...
...I know today...
Well, it's gotta be a tough day to be going to a wedding.
Doesn't matter.
If Jessica wants to do this for Bill...
...then I'm damn well gonna do it for both of them.
Mind holding these?
Well, I ain't never been to a vampire wedding before.
Well, there's a first time for everything.
Did they say why they were getting hitched so fast?
Nope, all they said was could I perform the ceremony, to come on over.
She can't be pregnant, can she?
Oh, I don't think so. But wouldn't that be cool if she was?
Cute little baby vamp.
- Tiny teeth. - Breastfeeding would be a bitch.
Uh, yeah.
- Sheriff Bellefleur? - Yeah, Vampire Bill?
Is the front door closed?
It is now.
Would you mind having a word with me in my office?
Course. Hopefully this won't take too long.
Don't worry about us.
Oh, no, no. We'll just be snooping. Ha-ha-ha.
I just love how fancy it is.
Take a seat.
I heard you were sick, but, uh, I didn't expect it to be this bad.
I need to ask you a favor.
Like you said, there's a lot of history between us...
...not all of it good.
Legally speaking, with your grandmother not fit and all...'re my eldest remaining heir.
We're family, remember? You and I.
I remember.
When I found out I was unwell, I went to see an attorney...
...see if I could will my home to Jessica.
It's kind of a long story, but it turns out that I can't.
Which means that when I die this house will pass over to you.
I can't accept this house.
For all kinds of reasons.
I'm asking if you will rent it to Jessica and Hoyt...
...for the sum of one dollar a month.
And if, for whatever reason, they forget to pay...
...maybe you can look away.
Copy that, Vampire Bill.
Consider it done.
- Oh. - Oh?
- On this side. - Yep.
Like that?
Brigette still at your place?
She, uh-- She leaves tonight.
When you left for here, you tell her where you were going?
I mean...
I feel like shit. You think maybe I should call her and say, you know, I'm--
That right there is a terrible fucking idea, is what that is.
Sorry about your eye.
And I'm sorry about your tie. Come here, man.
If taking a hit from a heavyweight is the price I had to pay to get you back in my life...
...I'd take one every day of the week and twice on Sunday.
There you go.
I'm just...
I'm starting to freak out a little bit.
Well, if it makes you feel any better, I'm pretty sure this ceremony ain't exactly legal.
I seen this old movie, Regarding Henry.
And, uh, Harrison Ford plays, uh, a big city lawyer guy named Henry.
And when he gets into some kind of accident, I can't remember what...
...but he gets amnesia...
...and, uh, he has to relearn everything.
He don't even know the people in his life.
Man, I feel just like Henry.
He was shot.
Who? Who was?
- Henry. - You saw it too.
Well, we rented it together.
You see?
I want you to listen to me, Hoyt.
It's been a long fucking week, and it's been a weird fucking week...
...but I've figured something out along the way.
We gotta live every day like it's our last, man.
And if we do that... puts everything in prescription for us.
If I was to tell you the world was gonna end tomorrow...
...who would wanna wake up next to?
Jessica. Mm-hm.
Don't that tell you everything you need to know?
Then get the hell out there, man.
Let's go out there and make some new memories.
Let me help you here, man.
Let's do this shit, Bubba.
Let's do this shit.
Let's do it.
Fucking A.
They sent me up here to see if y'all were just about ready.
Um, just putting on the final details.
Two minutes.
- Can I see her? - I could really use another set of eyes.
- Why, you don't trust me? - No, I trust you.
- It's just-- - I'm kidding.
Oh, girl, you don't need another minute.
You're perfect.
- Yes, sir, I do. - Here they come!
- Everything all right? - Jessica was just wondering...
...if you felt up to walking her down the aisle.
Of course.
She's in the foyer.
Oh, Jess.
You look so beautiful.
You got this.
Are you sure you're okay?
I'm okay. I'm great.
Arlene, would you mind turning down the music?
Oh, shit, I forgot.
I am so sorry. Go ahead, y'all.
I, uh, I brought some notes so I don't mess this up.
I hope y'all don't mind.
Please, be seated.
We are all gathered here today... celebrate the relationship of Jessica Hamby and Hoyt Fortenberry...
...and to be witnesses and supporters...
...of the commitment they share with one another.
Together we're a group of the most important people in their lives...
...and they've brought us here to publicly recognize...
...that we've all played a special part in the love that they share today.
Who gives Jessica away in marriage to this man?
I do.
- No, don't go. - I'll be sitting right here.
I'm right behind you.
It's a beautiful thing, fathers and daughters.
So happy. So much pain.
Don't let them see.
Be here. Be present.
So happy.
So happy.
You all right?
I'm fine.
I love you, Sookie Stackhouse. I love you with everything I'm made of.
Who gives Hoyt away in marriage to this woman?
Uh, I do.
But Hoyt and me, we already hugged it out, so you carry on, Father.
Before we move on to the vows, I just want to say one thing.
The state of Louisiana, the United States of America...
...may not recognize this union...
...but for my money...
...there ain't a doubt in my mind that God does.
The love you two share is beautiful.
And love is love...
...plain and simple.
Uh, have y'all written down any thoughts you wanna share with one another?
The thing is, there wasn't really much time.
- It's okay, I didn't write anything down either. - Thank God.
What about rings? Do you have any?
I ain't got no ring.
It's all good. We'll improvise.
Hoyt, please, take Jessica's hand...
...and repeat after me.
I give you my heart as a symbol of our love.
I give you my heart as a symbol of our love.
For today and tomorrow and for all the days to come.
For today, tomorrow, and all the days to come.
I want this for you so badly.
So badly for you to have this.
Please, Sookie. Set yourself free.
Jessica, repeat after me.
I give you my heart as a symbol of our love.
I give you my heart as a symbol of our love.
- For today-- - For today and tomorrow and tomorrow night...
...and all of the nights to come, and we had really better hurry this thing up...
- ...because I am running out of tissues. - On it.
Thank you.
And know that my love is present even when I am not.
And know that my love is present even when I am not.
Okay, good, you two are almost hitched.
Jessica, do you take this man to be your husband?
Do you promise to love him, honor and keep him... sickness and in health, and forsaking all others... faithful to him, as long as you both shall live?
- I do. - Hoyt, do you take this woman... be your wife?
Do you promise to love her, honor and keep her... sickness and in health, and forsaking all others... faithful to her, as long as you both shall live?
- I do. - Excellent.
I now pronounce you husband and wife.
You may kiss your vampire bride.
Bubba, congratulations.
...are you all right?
Because, uh, you ain't said a word since Bill's house.
I could hear Bill's thoughts.
- Huh? - I could hear him, Jason.
I could hear him thinking.
What the fuck?
- I thought that wasn't even possible. - So did I.
But last night he was saying how this disease... making him feel more human than he's ever felt before.
Guess he didn't know how right he was.
Well, what did--? What was he thinking?
All the right things.
Everything that you want somebody who loves you to be thinking about you.
Except for the part about him...
-...still wanting to die at your hand. Um... - Yeah, except for that.
Can you just give us a sweet little second?
- Oh, yeah, sure. - Thanks. Uh.
She's sweet on you, you know.
- No, no, she ain't. - I was listenin to her this morning.
Sook, I don't wanna hear it.
Can I just say one thing and then I'll shut up?
- I swear. - Go on.
I get that you've got some kind of personal growth story...
...going on in your head about all this...
...but if you were to somehow wind up sleeping with her...
...on the way to the airport--
No way, no how.
I'm just gonna put her on the plane. That's it.
I'm just saying, if you do...
...I approve.
I like her, and I think you do too.
I ain't gonna be no girlfriend-fucker again.
I get that...
...but we just came from Hoyt's wedding.
She ain't his girlfriend anymore.
- So nice to meet you. - You too, Sookie.
Bye, Brigette.
Thank you.
- You ready? - Hmm...
Yeah, put that on.
Reverend Daniels?
Miss Stackhouse?
Is it okay if I come in?
Of course it is, sweetheart.
- What are you working on? - This week's sermon.
Do you always write in church?
Not always.
But when the words don't want to come out, I come in here to think.
It makes me feel...
...closer to God.
Does he talk to you?
- Not once. - That's a shame.
Because I could really use his advice right about now.
Well, when you got in your car and drove over here..., you didn't expect to find God sitting here, did you?
I'm assuming you came to talk to me.
The world used to be a whole lot simpler, didn't it?
Till a couple years ago...
...we thought there was no such thing as vampires.
Hell, and werewolves or werepanthers or shapeshifters or anything like that.
Why do you think these sermons of mine are getting harder to write?
You know what I am, right?
You're a telepath.
I'm a fairy.
- No kidding. - I wish I were.
Huh. Well, I'll be.
Do you believe that God made us all... he meant us to be...
...or do you think that some of us are just...
I heard about all you've done for this town...
...and believe it or not, Sookie...
...most folks are saying we wouldn't be here without you.
How can you think for one second that you're a mistake?
But what if I just want to lead a normal life?
What if I'm tired of being what I am?
Am I sinning against God if I decide not to be?
Now hold on a second.
Are you saying that you can un-fairy yourself?
Oh, that's another story then...
...because, yes. Yes, I believe we are all as God made us...
...but I also believe he doesn't have to lead our lives...
...and he doesn't have to walk in our shoes.
What I'm getting at is, God wouldn't have given us...
...these amazing brains we've got...
...if he didn't expect that, at some point...
...we were gonna start using them to make our own decisions... exercise our free will.
Does that help at all?
I think so.
I hope so.
Thank you, Reverend Daniels.
Any time.
I know it's not my place, but you want some advice about that sermon?
Ha, ha. Honey, I'll take advice wherever I can find it.
Tell them help is on its way.
Tell them it will all be over soon.
How do you know that?
I just do.
I've made all the arrangements with the cemetery.
I'll meet you there at sundown.
I've been standing here for a while...
...and all I can think about is...
...why do you have a coffin?
There were so very many of us soldiers...
...whose bodies never returned home.
I suppose they thought that coffins would be more palatable for the families.
I don't want to do this.
I know you don't.
I can't let go.
It's time.
Thank you.
What is it?
It's a photograph.
My daughter and me.
I gave it to her just before leaving for war.
You might want to get in before I lose my nerve.
I'm ready.
- Bill? - Yeah?
I'll never forget you.
I wish I could say the same, but I don't know what happens next.
When I asked you this morning if you realize what it was... were asking me to give up...
I don't think I understood the gravity of it myself.
This is who I am.
It's part of my truth...
...just like Jason's my brother...
...and my parents are my parents.
They're a part of me...
...whether I like it or not.
And you, Bill...'re a part of me too.
And you always will be.
But I can't do this for you.
I'm sorry.
Do you still want to die?
Are you sure now?
I'm sure.
I love you, Bill Compton.
I love you too.
Are you fatigued?
Plagued by veins and uncontrollable cravings?
Do you fear the true death?
Hi, my name is Eric Northman.
I'm a thousand-year-old vampire, and president and CEO of New Blood.
Not too long ago, though, I was just like you:
Sick, despondent, waiting to die.
But that's when Miss De Beaufort here tracked me down...
...and found me in an abandoned wine cellar in the south of France.
When I found Mr. Northman, I barely recognized him.
He was no longer the invincible, Viking vampire god...
...who turned me over a hundred years ago.
He had given up, but I hadn't...
...because I had a hunch there was a cure out there...
...contained within the body of Sarah Newlin.
Ho-ho-ho. We all remember Miss Newlin.
She was a televangelist's wife...
...who had a second career as an international mass murderer...
...before disappearing into thin air.
But not before swallowing the antidote to Hepatitis V.
All of the antidote.
So together, Eric and I set out to track Miss Newlin down.
Well, we never caught Miss Newlin.
She narrowly escaped our grasp... jumping through the rear window of a home she'd been hiding in.
We did, however, find a few drops of her blood on a shard of glass.
So we rushed Miss Newlin's blood... our team of world-class scientists in Stockholm, Sweden...
...and Miss De Beaufort's hunch paid off when they synthesized it into this:
New Blood.
- Turkey's in. - Thanks, hon.
Gotcha, Daddy!
You got me again.
- Okay, it's time to go. - It's time to go.
- Oh. - Daddy's hungry, baby. Oh, yeah.
- Jason? - Yeah?
You could help me, you know.
- Yeah, give me that. - Can you grab this?
- Thank you. - Thank you.
You wanna come with Daddy? Yeah, come on, baby.
Going long, baby!
- Come on, Victoria. - See?
See that throw, man?
- I did see that throw. - Sam.
- That was good. - Hey, Sookie.
- Hi. - Oh, I know.
Baby doll.
Show me some tits!
Fifty-eight, 59, 60.
It's been a pleasure doing business with you, Maurice, but your time is up.
May I please have just one more minute?
$100,000 for a minute with her. That was the deal.
Do you take credit cards?
Cash only. Get the fuck out.
Don't look at me like that.
Go away.
Leave me alone.
Oh, come on, Sarah.
It's Thanksgiving.
Let's say what we're thankful for.
Personally, I'm thankful that you're losing your fucking mind.
Which means, as a figment of your imagination...
...I am never going away.
I get to be here to haunt you...
...every day for the rest of your life.
And maybe even after that.
Now you go.
What are you thankful for, Sarah?
