This season of 'True Blood' jumped viewers a year forward in time in a world where vampires, werewolves, witches, faeries and now were-panthers (seriously?) all try to co-exist. The show's definitely taken a turn toward crazy-town and honestly, would we have it any another way?

Here's what you missed in Season 4, Episode 3:

Eric's a wandering vamp with no recollection of his identity. Sookie, always one to help out a friend, attempts to care for him until she realizes the situation is way more than she can handle right now. Plus, Alcide returns!

Jason's in the middle of transforming into a were-panther (like we really need to lose one of the last-standing humans), and is now apparently destined to save their race from extinction. Which means he's about to have a whole lotta sex with a whole lotta were-panther chicks.

Andy's gone full-out V addict and tries to punch Sam in face.

Jessica and Hoyt are having some relationship issues, but when Jess admits to feeding on another man (which is definitely cheating in 'True Blood' world) she immediately glamours him into forgetting. Talk about taking the easy way out.

Bill gets down to business with Portia, you know, in bed.

Tommy's getting into trouble again -- this time scheming to sell Maxine's house in order to cash in on the natural gas it's sitting on. Nothing good can come from this plan.

The witch coven is freaking out over the whole Marnie-Eric sitch that went down in last week's episode, and even though Lafayette knows better, he finds himself in Fangtasia's basement -- again -- being tortured by a reasonably-upset Pam (Eric's her maker, remember?) Enter Tara with a gun, and Pam gives them 24 hours to bring Marnie to her.

And...Eric attacks Sookie's faerie godmother, naturally.
