• The Vampire Authority punishes Bill by having him turn Jessica Hamby into a vampire.

• Rene kills himself after he kills Sookie and Jason's grandma. Distraught over vampires, Jason joins an anti-vampire movement.

Season 2

• Maryann Forrester mysteriously arrives in town and slowly hypnotizes everyone in town so she can gain power to release the god Dionysus.

• We learn more about Sam Merlotte's shapeshifting and his true family.

• Arlene Fowler is pregnant with what she think is Rene's baby.

• Bill pledges allegiance to the Russell Edgington, Vampire King of Mississippi, and tells Sookie not to go searching for him.

• Sookie learns she is part fairy.

• Sookie is transported to fairy land.

Season 4

• Sookie was only in fairy land for minutes, but it's actually been a year.

• Lafayette and Jesus, who met in season 2, join a coven meeting with Marnie.

• We learn about Lafayette's power as a medium.

• Arlene's baby begins acting strangely and she thinks he may be evil.

• Eric forgets who he is and becomes a sweet vampire after drinking Sookie's fairy godmother's blood.

• Antonia Gavilan de Logrono, a witch burned centuries ago, possesses Marnie and uses her to seek revenge on vampires.

• Bill becomes the Vampire King of Louisiana.

• Marnie uses Eric to create trouble and further ruin vampires' reputation.

These bullets follow more the main plot than anything else.
