    Can't Sam transform himself into a fly whenever he wants? So was he never in any real danger then? I get that he waited for Jason to play God and "smite" him before turning into a fly to get all the townsfolk to leave the bar, but couldn't he have just turned into a fly from the very beginning and head over to his bar and avoid all the chaos that followed? I guess he didn't do that because he wanted to help Arlene (so I just answered my own question) .
    Charlaine Harris explains this much better in the books but, Sam is a shape shifter and can transform into anything at will, but it has to be something recent in his awareness. If he sees the fly, then he can immediately transform into it. He usually has his dog close by him, so that he can quickly transform into a copy of it. I am not sure if Sam again saw another fly in this episode just before he transformed, or whether he was still holding a likeness of it in his mind and transformed from that - but he probably held off doing it because he didn't want to freak everyone out so he waited for a distraction.
    Also, he may not have wanted to leave Andy and Jason helpless by deserting them. No one but Sookie and other supes knows that Sam is a shapeshifter.

    Andy knows/thinks Sam is a "nudist" from the first season of TB. (Andy and his cousin Terry (bartender/cook) were fishing when they caught Sam running nude at the full moon just before he transformed. But, neither saw him actually transform). So that explains why Andy just raised his eyebrows when he saw Sam nude outside his door in previous episode.

    I can't remember when Andy finds out about Sam in the books........ but Alan can make it happen anytime.

Both Bill and then Jessica glamored him to get the information they needed and to alter his memory. In the first or second episode of the series, Bill tries to glamor Sookie and it doesn't work - she just laughs at him.

    Mike'sgirl, I actually LOVE the maenad storyline in the books (because it's so short) - what's not to like about Eric in pink and purple spandex?

    Did Jessica live out the ultimate mother-in-law fantasy or what? How many women with nightmare mol's wouldn't LOVE to do what she did to Mrs. Fortenberry!?
    While I would like to see Eric in pink spandex, during an interview at Comic Con Alan Bell sorta ruled that out. Personally, I would have luv'ed it and a pink boa would have been the perfect fashion accessory.

    I saw the video of the panel at Comic-Con, but I'd still love to see Eric in that outfit. No point in going that way really, since AB has changed this storyline so much. As long as we see much more of Eric in these last two episodes, I'll be somewhat placated by the lack of spandex

    Well...I guess it's no surprise that I didn't care much for seeing Eric in his spandex drag and the thought of a boa is gaying it up waaay more than I'd care to think about. I just don't get this drag love. Is he bisexual or what? I never got past the second book. On the other hand, I don't mind Lafayette's drag, makeup and all.

    All vampires in the Harris books have a dual (bisexual) nature. They can select more of one type as a preference, but the nature is there. Pam for instance prefers women, (at least in the books) but that didn't stop her from having a relationship with Eric very early on.

    But to answer your question, Eric seems to prefer women.
    I honestly don't clearly remember the pink spandex in the book, if I read about it, I quickly erased it from my long term memory because it doesn't fit with my image of Eric.
    It may have happened in the book when Eric escorted Sookie to the final orgy party (????) It was a secret sex club "in the book" and Sookie was invited because of her preference for Vampires - they thought she would be kinky enough for them. Bill was unavailable, so Sookie asked Eric to escort her, and I have a vague recollection of him wearing something underneath his clothes. It was meant to be erotic to the other club members attesting to the fact that they were swingers. The whole purpose in attending the party was for Sookie to find out (eavesdrop for clues) who killed Lafayette (also a secret member not being so secretive and was murdered because of that). That's if I remember that book storyline correctly.

    Gotcha! I remember that party! It was out by a lake, and Tara (and Eggs?) were there, too. And it was crowded and gross. It was in book 2, which is as far as I have gotten.

    I believe that having Eric act and dress like he was gay while at the swingers' party was to trigger thoughts in the minds of the party attendees of Lafayette since Sookie can only read their thoughts as they're having them.

    And, now that I think about it, he WAS wearing spandex at that party!

    With a trench coat over it! That whole orgy scene was nasty because of the people involved...although with Tara it was just sad. The scenes on the show are even worse. I just hate that storyline! For me, the only good thing about it in the book was that it brought Sookie an Eric closer. Fingers crossed that the same thing happens on the show!
