First air date
September 7, 2008
Sookie Stackhouse is tired of hearing voices in her head, but she is dumbstruck when she finally meets someone that is silent to her. As a telepathic, Sookie hears everyone's thoughts, except for vampires. As vampire, Bill Compton, enters her life, the little town of Bon Temps will never be the same. Intrigued by the vampire, Sookie agrees to a date with him at the protests of her boss, Sam. As one of his waitresses servicing Merlotte's Grill, Sam is very protective of Sookie. As a shape-shifter, Sam understands that the supernatural world is highly dangerous. Flanked by her friends Tara and Arlene, Sookie immerses herself in the vampire world, where she finds both love and heartbreak. With a vampire sheriff interested in her as well, Sookie has her hands full.
