Lacey has rejoined our discussion after some on location reporting and research in Bon Temps, so let’s get’s right to it!

Season Five Episode 7: In the Beginning

Jim: Sookie is having her luminescence checked out but Jason would like to know what that means in “laid man’s” terms.

Episode 502: Madrigal

All the sordid details died with him (or did they?), so now we begin the process of piecing it back together, one tater tot at a time.
My homeboy Mike, which is what I’ll be calling him from here on out because as we discovered in this episode, he has history as a corrupt Philadelphia cop. Of course Philly, that makes TOTAL sense.
