After spending the night with Bill, Sookie is convinced that she has found the man of her dreams as the person who took her virginity. But Sookie's fellow workers and the customers at the bar don't quite agree as rumors spread of her relationship with a vampire. Sookie's painful childhood revelation about her Uncle Bartlett spurs Bill into action. Meanwhile, Tara's alcoholic mother, Lettie Mae, is convinced that she needs an exorcism and when Tara refuses to pay, she tries to get a loan from the bank. Jason is desperate to get more vampire blood and visits Fangtasia where he meets a young woman, named Amy, who introduces himself to something altogether different. Sam Merlotte is seen by Andy and a few others running across the bayou... naked. The patrons at the bar are not too pleased when a group of Bill's one-time vampire friends, Malcolm, Liam, and Diane, show up. When they mention that they've bought a house locally, three of the redneck good old boys decide to do something about ... Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


When Amy tells Jason "Nothing is real - everything is permitted.", she quotes Friedrich Nietzsche ('Thus Spoke Zarathustra'). A different translation of the same quote ("Nothing is true, everything is permitted.") is used as the eponymous creed in the video game franchise 'Assassin's Creed'. See more »


When Sookie is talking to Sam and Arlene about the three rednecks going to kill the vampires, the amount of beer in the two mugs on the counter changes back and forth between shots. See more »

Two Demons, a Naked Man and Four Vampires
20 September 2009 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Sookie is not grieving the death of Adele; actually she is in love with Bill and extremely happy and her colleagues and the clients of the Merlotte's have negative thoughts about her relationship with the vampire. Meanwhile Tara decides to give the money to her mother for her exorcism. The addicted Jason heads to Fangtasia trying to buy vampire blood; he does not succeed but he meets Amy Burley, who gives him the drug and they experience a great connection to each other. Three vampires come to the Merlotte's and Bill lives the place with them; later three locals head to their house and throw Molotov cocktail burning the place.

In this episode, Tara's mother is convinced that she has a demon inside her and changes her behavior after the exorcism. Jason meets the weird Amy and they have a trip together. The behavior of Sookie is strange considering that her beloved grandmother has just passed away. Why was Sam running naked in the forest? My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "A Casa de Amor em Chamas" ("The House of Love in Flame")
