Lafayette and his sweetie Jesus (god, I love them) appear in front of a store called Moon Goddess Emporium and head inside. Lafayette is sporting a mohawk…an odd choice for such a fashion forward gentleman. We find out that Jesus has been dragging his love to pagan fairs and meditation groups. The woman here, he says, is the leader of his coven and more tapped into her magic than anyone he knows. Here’s Lafayette’s reaction to the store:
The coven is in a circle and our witchy waitress Holly hugs Lafayette. We learn that she’s been trying to get him here for ages. Aunt Petunia…I mean Marnie, is in a trance, contacting the dead (which apparently happens some nights…for the others, there is vodka, we’re told). She gestures to Lafayette and starts to do something that resembles coughing up a hairball. Holly asks if he knows anyone named Edie…Eddie? Oh yes he does! Remember poor vampire Eddie? Marnie channels him…shudder.
Now we hit Arlene and Terry’s house, where her bouncing baby boy has ripped the heads off Barbie dolls. You know your baby is a future serial killer if… Terry tries to calm her down by saying that when he was a boy he would put squirrel heads on lizard bodies to invent new animals. Does anyone else thing Arlene should examine her taste in men?
Meanwhile in New Orleans, Tara is wrestling women in a cage. No, really!
What the hell happened while Sookie was refusing shiny health food? Well, apparently, Hoyt and Jessica have turned into an old married couple, arguing about how she should cook him food since he’s her own personal bar. (Might be the funniest scene of the episode.)
At Fangtasia, Pam is having trouble convincing the public of their safety during a commercial filming at the establishment. Eric takes over and we cut back and forth between he and Bill, (and our first glimpse of Portia Bellefleur) convincing the world that vampires are total fluffy bunnies. After all, as Eric says, ”Who would you rather trust? A vampire or a politician?” Well, I’d say they’re both just as likely to show their naughty bits in public.
To continue the catch up, Tara is hooking up with her sparring partner Naomi, who is calling her Toni for some reason. And Tara seems…sane? I guess the exercise is cathartic.
