At the season four opening, we see Sookie and Claudine arriving at mystical land of fairies. This glowing new world centered around a magic tree, appears to be fulfilled with magic and harmony called Fae Realm. Claudine tells Sookie that she is her fairy godmother. For years, she has been protecting Sookie from all kinds of danger and saving her life.

Recap Image

Sookie is introduced to several fairies and to her pleasure she already knew some of them. She sees Barry, a porter from the Hotel Carmilla (she met him for the first time in season two, during investigation of Godric's disapperiance). As she starts talking to him, a fairy offers them Lumiere, a delicious light-fruit. Sookie looks around and realizes that all other new-comer fairies are enjoying glowing magical fruit. She was a bit suspicious, but she forgot about fruit as soon as she spotted her grandfather, Earl Stackhouse.

Recap Image

When he recognized her, Earl was confused that she grow up so fast because, in fairyland, last 20 years felt like only a few hours. Sookie starts to hear strange sounds and see upsetting images. She realizes that something is wrong in this perfect magical land. She tries to communicate telepathically with Earl and worn him that this might be a trap, but (as all people there are fairies too) everyone hear her.

Queen Mab is offended and she orders Sookie to eat Lumiere. She refuses and as she throws fruit on the ground it transforms into a shapeless mass as well Queen’s face starts changing. Queen said that Sookie endangered their kind when she let Bill drink her blood allowing him to breach the Realm. In Old Kingdom, Faes were driven away here by vampires who nearly drank them to extinction. Mab ordered harvesting of all humans of faerie descent and bringing them to the Fae Realm, so she can cut off theirs’ connections to world and save theirs’ species.
