Eric steps outside first. The birds are tweeting and the sun is shining. Eric walks slowly into the light, putting his hand out in front of him to see what will happen. Inside, everyone else watches on a security camera. Well, everyone but Sookie. She’s passed out and Bill wants to be unchained so he can give her some blood.
Eric motions to Russell to come outside. He’s burning slowly, but no one can tell. Russell begins to cry tears, he’s so excited. "Thousands of years of night!" Pam asks "What are you waiting for?"
Russell joins Eric, blinded by the light at first but then embracing it. He calls it glorious and sublime — and then he sees Eric’s face.
It’s filled with burn marks. He chains Russell to him with a handcuff. "Be brave — we’ll die together!
OK, obviously we don’t want Eric to die, but we want Russell out of our lives. WTF is going to happen on the finale?
