  • Trivia

    • Goof: Tara was tied up at Lafayette's, but after she recovers she goes to hug her mother without having ever been untied.

    • It seems odd that Jason could hear Andy whispering, but could not hear Sam talking in a normal to shouting voice.

  • Quotes

    • Sookie: I've known Tara my whole life and every trace of her was gone. Replaced. And here I thought vampires were the only one's who could hypnotize people.
      Bill: No offense Sookie, but humans are shockingly susceptible to just about every form of thought manipulation.
      Sookie: It's all comin' from Maryann. All of it. She-she eats people's hearts and she wants more. She wants their souls and that chant...
      : Chant?
      : Lo lo Bromios, lo lo Dendrites, Eleutherios, Enorches, Bacchus.
      : (serious) Bacchus!
      : Bill... I've seen that look on your face before and I don't like it.
      : I read about some ancient creatures many years ago. But I always assumed it was just a myth. But I believe Maryann might be one.

    • Maryann: (catching Bill and Sookie) What are you doing in my house?
      : This is not your house!
      : (wickedly) It is now.
      Bill: (to Maryann) I strongly suggest you remove yourself immediately!
      : (to Sookie) My, you found yourself quite a specimen. Though I dare say there's nothing stopping him from one day leaving you cold.
      : You don't scare me.

    • Tara: (trances, tied to a chair) It burns when I'm tied up. It burns like fire, momma.
      Lettie Mae
      : (to Lafayette) Tyin' her up's not makin' her better.
      : I done told you, it's for her own good. Ours too.
      Lettie Mae: (to Tara) Child, tell me baby. Tell your momma what you need.

    • (Sam and Andy are hiding in the freezer from the zombified towns people)
      : We're still alive.
      Andy: For now! What we gonna do? We gonna have to kill them all.
      : Well even if we could, those are our friends and neighbors.
      : And cousins!
      : Right. We can't kill 'em.

    • Sam: I got no idea how we're gonna deal with a god-damned maenad.
      : A mae-what?
      : Wait. You don't remember any of what I told you last night? Or were you passed out, spent the whole f*ck*n' day in bed, sleepin' off your bender?
      Andy: You said uh, Maryann was to blame for all this, the bug eyes and the craziness.
      : And the people showin' up dead with their hearts cut out, in the back seat of your car.
      : She did that?
      : Yeah. She killed Daphne too.
      : F*ck me... We got another serial killer.
      : Andy, listen to me. She is a super-natural creature and she is immortal. She has powers and she's not leavin' till she gets what she wants, which I think is me.
      Andy: What's she want you for?
      Sam: I think to cut out my heart while a bunch of naked people watch. All for Dionysus or Satan or for some god that has horns.
      : People thought I was crazy because I thought I saw a pig!
      Sam: Well you did see a pig and you were right. That pig is a part of all this. That pig was... was doin' some of Maryann's dirty work for her.
      : Well if what you say is true, we need to kill that bitch!
      : She don't die. Remember?

    • Jason: I'm going to Merlotte's and find out what the hell is happening on my turf.
      : Jason, if this is the same creature we think it might be, you don't wanna go anywhere near it. Trust me.
      : Mr. Compton, I ain't about to sit back and let monsters destroy my town.
      Sookie: Jason, this would be one of those times to use your head.
      : Oh, I am. I ain't never been so clear in my whole life. This here is the war I've been training for.

    • Bill: Tara, you are safe here. You have to do exactly as I say.
      : I am not your f**king slave girl.
      Lafayette: If there ever there was a time to listen to a white man, Tara, this is it.

    • Lettie Mae: If only Miss Jeanette was still alive.
      Lafayette: She don't need no backwoods witch. She needs Thorazine and a padded cell.

    • Jason: (Having been tired of seeing black eyes) There's those f***in eyes again.

    • Andy: (to Sam) You've been real good to this town, even if you are a sometime nudist.

  • Allusions

    • The video-game Maxine Fortenberry was playing was Dead Space: Extraction.

    • Dionysus, who plays a key role in this episode, is the god of wine, agriculture, theater, grapes, ritual madness, and ecstasy. As implied in this episode, Dionysus is known by many names, each of which denotes different aspects of Dionysus. The alternate names that were shown in this episode and what they mean are as follows:

      Bromios: being noisy or boisterous
      Dendrities: meaning he of the trees
      Eleutherios: meaning the liberator
      Enorches: a name that denotes Dionysus as a fertility god
      Bacchus: the name for Dionysus used by the Romans.

    • Terry: The EPW is secured.

      EPW is a military acronym that stands for "Enemy Prisoner of War".

    • When Terry takes Andy's gun from him, he mentions stress inoculation. Stress inoculation is a method of psychotherapy that attempts to prepare a patient to handle stressful situations with minimum upset. the process involves general education about stress, teaching of necessary skills, and an opportunity to practice those skills. Terry, in a very odd way, was most likely trying to ease Sam's and Andy's stress due to their impending death.

    • Lafayette: She don't need no backwoods witch. She needs Thorazine and padded cell.

      Thorazine, the brand name of Chlorpromazine, is an antipsychotic that was used primarily in the treatment of schizophrenics. It is rarely used now because there are similar drugs with better effectiveness that are tolerated better by patients.

    • The prayer that is said by Tara's mom and Lafayette is from Psalms 103:1-4. There are some variations depending on the religious denomination and the bible that is read, but the verse basically reads as follows:

      Bless the LORD, O my soul,
      And all that is within me, bless His holy name.
      Bless the LORD, O my soul,
      And forget none of His benefits;
      Who pardons all your iniquities,
      Who heals all your diseases;
      Who redeems your life from the pit,
      Who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion

    • Title: New World in My View

      The title of this episode is an allusion to a song by Sister Gertrude Morgan.
