Catholic vampire feeds on Jason as Eric loses faith in something other than himself; overwhelmed by grief and sadness, not unlike Arlene's, Northman refuses to have any part in a funeral. His family manages to reunite using all resources available. Problem is: resources land them right where Bill foresaw, at the wake of their own funeral.
Unbeknown to Bill and Sookie, Eric uses Andy's daughter to grab a hold on Warlow, the last chance to hold his progeny like Andy does by the end of the episode. Because only a parent can smell danger, as only a shapeshifter can smell a pregnancy, Sam figures out Nicole is pregnant with the next generation of Bon Temp natural born shapeshifters.
