Synopsis: Shaken and disillusioned, Sookie rethinks her relationship with Bill. Sophie-Anne takes up a new residence as Russell plots his next move. Jessica and Bill reconcile; Jason throws down the gauntlet in hopes of saving Crystal; Lafayette gets a surprise visit from his mom, Ruby Jean; Sam tries to keep Tommy in check; Merlotte’s gets a new waitress named Holly; Eric proves the depth of his allegiance to Russell. Sookie finds herself in a vulnerable position when Alcide needs to deal with a family emergency.
HOLLY played by Lauren Bowles
A thirty something (presumably single) mother of two, Holly applies for a job at Merlotte’s and creeps Arlene out with her oddly prescient observations. Very strong recurring in season 3 with a possible series regular upgrade in season 4.
NATALIE played by Kate Luyben Early to mid 30’s. She’s attractive in a trashy sorta way. No dialogue in this episode. Recurs in Episode 3.09 with dialogue. Above-the-waist nudity in Episode 3.09.
