Sam is a rat and crawls into the dungeons where Arlene and everyone is being held. He shifts into Sam and tells them that they are coming to help them.
Outside the building Eric is punching the cement – he is not strong enough so Bill does it and wall comes down. Sam comes out of the wall and tells them that their people are alive.

The infected vampires took Arlene to feed on. While Pam takes them out to the others. Bill goes upstairs to see if he can help Arlene. While he is walking upstairs he hears Eric’s voice. Eric tells the infected vampires that he is infected to and needs sanctuary and he has his own human. They smell Sookie and let Eric in.

Sookie screams and looks for Arlene, she realizes that Arlene is close to death and tries to find a healthy vampire to feed Arlene so she does not die. There is so much confusion with the townspeople outside killing every vampire in sight it is difficult to get a healthy vampire to help.
Arlene starts to fade and she sees Terry and starts to go towards him, towards the light. Finally in the nick of time Sookie finds Keith (a healthy vampire) who saves Arlene. Sookie embraces Arlene and as she does Eric walks in and looks at her and smiles and then turns around and leaves.
