Patty ended tonight's episode of True Blood with that song.

I Smell a Rat was also the episode title.

Section re: Patty

".......Patty Griffin, whose song "I Smell a Rat" ends this episode... Griffin is another one of those fabulously dark country/folk voices that crop up either on Prairie Home Companion or here on True Blood. Since 1996, she's haunted us with a mix of Poe and Mary-Chapin Carpenter, then a couple of years back she decided she's had enough of the thorny path and started releasing more upbeat material.

Her newest album, Downtown Church, is an exploration of religion and her spiritual experiences. And all the songs on the album are distinctly down-home gospel in nature... save "I Smell a Rat." What does it say about an artist talking God that the one secular song she'd include on the album is distinctly about knowledge of a trusted love's deception and hijinks?"
