15. Franklin’s gift bag.
The setup: Jessica killed a trucker and was hiding the decomposing body underneath the house. She freaks when the body disappears on her. Enter Franklin, who teases her about losing someone and then pulls a little something from the gift bag he’s carrying.
"Maybe this will jog your memory."
14. Queen Sophie Anne’s scratchlottery ticket addiction.
The setup: We were wondering why the Queen had such money problems. Now we know why.
"Momma’s feeling lucky tonight."
13. Tara kicks Bill out of the linen truck.
The setup: Tara spent most of the season inertly morose and victimized (which we found really tiresome), but in the season’s seventh episode she briefly gets her mojo back — after ingesting a serious amount of vampire blood. First she bashes crazy Franklin’s head in, but even cooler: when she discovers that Bill has mindlessly attacked Sookie in the back of their getaway linen truck, she screams like a banshee, kicks him out of the van and ten feet across the pavement. We love the badass Tara! If only we’d seen more of her this season.
