Fans who want to watch True Blood Frenzy are looking for the eleventh episode of season two in which Bill must seek the advice of Sophie-Anne, the Vampire Queen of Louisiana about the Maenad Maryann haunting Bon Temps, Louisiana.
One of the main plots of the second season of HBO's original series True Blood involved a Maenad moving into Bon Temps and gradually seducing the town with her own brand of madness.
A maenad is a creature of mythology, women devoted to the orgiastic celebrations of Dionysus (Greek) or Bacchus (Roman), gods of libation and celebration.
In Charlaine Harris' novels, the Maenad first arrives to attack Sookie as a way of sending a message to Eric Northman, the Sheriff of Area Five.
Eric understands the message and sends an appropriate tribute to assuage the Maenad.
