At Merlotte’s, Arlene accuses Tommy of stealing her tips. "Since when has a four-top left me a two dollar tip?" she asks Sam. She demands a raise. and Sam tells his bro he’s taking the money out of his salary. Arelene runs off crying to the back and Holly goes to find her and give a pep talk. "I’ve seen worse — a lot worse." Um yeah, I’d say so.
Arlene says that coming to work used to be the best part of her day. She breaks down and tells Holly she doesn’t want the child. His daddy was "pure evil." She knows Terry is going to find out — unless the baby somehow doesn’t look Cuban or have serial killer tendencies. She won’t have an abortion though — "It’s plain wrong!" Holly tells her there’s other ways to resolve it and Arlene sobs on her shoulder.
Bill is sleeping when he suddenly feels water dripping down through the floorboads and onto his face. He is in Sookie’s little dreamland, wearing really tight white jeans and a flowy see-through shirt.
He instantly tries to kill the woman there but she does the sparky light thing Sookie can do and he is blasted onto his back. She asks if Bill has killed Sookie. Bill says he hasn’t but he wants to know what Sookie is so she can protect herself. "Please, what in God’s name are you?"
