From the Boston Herald-
The undead face their greatest threat in tonight’s episode of HBO’s “True Blood” (at 9 p.m.).
In “Cold Grey Light of Dawn,” Marnie (Fiona Shaw) is gone. Her body has been taken over by the 400-year-old witch Antonia, who, as flashbacks revealed, died a gruesome death during the Spanish Inquisition and has good cause to want payback. With her powers, she can compel vampires to walk into the sunlight - to their own fiery doom.
Bill (Stephen Moyer) quickly realizes she could massacre them all. His plan to save his subjects is almost as deadly as the sun itself.
Meanwhile, Sookie (Anna Paquin) and Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) take their lovemaking to just about every part of Bon Temps it seems, much to the distress of Alcide (Joe Manganiello). Eric decides he doesn’t want his memory back if the price is losing Sookie’s love.
Tara’s (Rutina Wesley) life is saved by TMZ - sort of. Sam (Sam Trammell) uncovers his brother’s deception. Jessica (Deborah Ann Wolf) realizes the sad truth about her relationship with Hoyt (Jim Parrack), who has no idea his best friend Jason (Ryan Kwanten) is also lusting for the red-headed vampire.
Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) begins to learn just how powerful he is. Could he be key to fighting Marnie? Trouble is, she makes a great case for wanting to rid the world of vampires, one even Bill acknowledges.
At hour’s end, one familiar vamp cannot resist the siren call to daylight …
I forgot about this idea I had, by Jason calling Hoyt "Bubba" all the time (I know it is a nic in the south, ie. Bill Clinton) does anyone think our loveable Hoyt might be turned? I could see it happening and it would be nice to have a vampire couple on the show. Eternal true love, well for maybe half a season at least, hee.

The real head of the AVL?
Marnie: After being fully possessed by the dead witch, Antonia, Martonia (as I'm now calling her) convinces one of her vampire guards to let her walk out of the jail cell. Then she goes on to wreak some havoc in Bon Temps.
Tara: Tara has to make some very painful decisions about her girlfriend after an aborted attack by Pam on the pair. Later, Antonia takes advantage of her pain to recruit Tara to her plain to exact revenge on the vampires. Tara also helps Marnie recruit more humans to her cause.
Alcide and Debbie: The couple join the city's werewolf pack, much to Debbie's happiness and Alcide's join the werewolf pack. They spot Sookie & Eric having sex in the woods, which leaves Debbie questioning who Alcide really wants to be with.
Bill & the Vampires: After being warned of Antonia's return, he warns Jessica about the danger of this witch coming back. His greatest fear is that Antonia will want to have all vampires "meet the sun". He is forced to make some unpopular and painful choices in order to protect the vampires in his kingdom. Pam also continues to try and find a cure to her rotting curse, but the best she can come up with is a painful procedure to try and make her look better.
Sookie and Eric: This pair continues to go at it - in a literal sense for a long while - until Eric decides to embrace his amnesia because Sookie admits that she never would have let the old Eric into her bed.
Lafayette & Jesus: Jesus tries to make his boyfriend come to some realizations about his power after what happened in his grandfather's house the night before. Later, Lafayette sees someone very strange (although recognizable to us as the audience).
Jason, Jessica & Hoyt: Jason continues to be weirded out by his recent sex dreams of Jessica which causes him to act strangely around Hoyt. Jessica, meanwhile, comes to some realizations about her relationship with Hoyt after discussing the situation with Bill.
Sam & Tommy: Sam has to deal with the fallout of Tommy's actions while pretending to be Sam, especially concerning Luna. When Sam realizes what his brother did, he makes a choice about Tommy's place in his life.
Expect one heck of a cliffhanger to tonight's episode that will have some fans anxious to see what happens next week.
