I didn’t know how I was going to accomplish this. I didn’t know who would acknowledge that I could help.
It’s Super Sookie to the rescue! It’s an interesting melancholy look back for Sookie at her school days; miserable days where she was unable to control her mind reading and was trapped inside her own head to avoid pain and conflict. The exploration of how to use her mind reading to solve crime is interesting, but flawed as we already know that she refuses to do anything about that black detective who beats prisoners. So. Yeah. Sookie finds the missing child and it’s a very interesting exercise for Sookie’s powers.
Andy Bellefleur tries to get her to help out the police full time.
“But I would think any citizen would want her town to be rid of thieves and rapists and murderers.”
Yeah, well you don’t know Sookie as well as we do. She refuses to, and the other police officers support her in this, as she’s ‘not a Magic 8 ball’.
There’s a new waitress at Merlotte’s, Tanya Grissom.
The newcomer was definitely a shape-shifter, and I was afraid Sam was prejudiced in her favor.
By offering her a job….?
Sookie talks about whether she’s prejudiced or not, but she reacted so well to Sam, didn’t she?!? The only reason she doesn’t like Tanya is that she can’t read her mind as clearly as others, even though Sookie generally treats her powers as a hinderance that she’d rather be rid off. I’d be happy if I met someone who had a mind I couldn’t read, and wasn’t a vampire.
Calvin comes by after work, as Crystal and Jason are now getting married. After a few months of being together. I’m getting that ‘Springer’ feeling. Calvin is more interested in finding out why Sookie’s not interested in him anymore. He’s surprised that she’s not into the whole incest vibe that comes from his family.
He leaves and Sookie spends the evening crying.
