Lillith is Warlow’s Maker

Picking up where last episode left off, Sookie is about to use her fairy lightball to kill Warlow once and for all. Before she can do this, however, Warlow delivers a shocking revelation: he only killed Sookie’s parents because they were going to kill her. He also lets her know he loves her, just as Bill walks in and commands him as his maker to leave. Bill explains that because Lillith is his maker and he now has Lillith’s blood in him, he is his new maker. A flashback explains that in 3500 BC Lillith found Warlow and informed him that he would one day save the vampire race. We learn that Warlow massacred his whole village, leaving only one survivor: Niall. Warlow’s rage led him to find Lillith and murder her for what she had done to him.
