HBO Unearths ‘True Blood’ Season 5 Spoilers for First Three Episodes
We love that in anticipation of the June 10 premiere of 'True Blood' season 5, the wheel has never stopped turning on tantalizing new teases for our favorite Bon Temps residents. We've already pored over the photos as long as humanly possible, and checked out every frame of the sexy new trailer, but what else could they possibly torture us with? Giant spoilers from the first few episodes!
HBO released their official synopses of the first three episodes of the upcoming season, set to premiere on Sunday, June 10 at 9:00 p.m. You know, the same day that other show wraps up its current season. You may have heard of it. It's called 'Game of Thrones.' But anyway, the latest spoilers from 'True Blood' definitely pack quite a wallop, so read at your own risk!
Episode #49: “Turn! Turn! Turn!”
SUNDAY, JUNE 10 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT)
Sookie (Anna Paquin) and Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) struggle with the aftermath of Tara’s (Rutina Wesley) shooting, while also cleaning up after Debbie Pelt. Meanwhile, Bill (Stephen Moyer) and Eric (Alexander Skarsgård), cleaning up a mess of their own, are visited by the Vampire Authority, one of whom is Nora (Lucy Griffiths), a woman from Eric’s past. In search of the missing Marcus, Alcide’s (Joe Manganiello) werewolf pack comes after Sam (Sam Trammell). With Bill away, Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) enjoys her new freedom by partying with local college kids; Jason (Ryan Kwanten) is visited by the recently turned Rev. Steve Newlin (Michael McMillian); Terry’s (Todd Lowe) PTSD is reignited by Patrick Devins (Scott Foley), an old Iraq War buddy; and Alcide turns up at Sookie’s to warn her about the recently resurfaced Russell Edgington (Denis O’Hare).
Episode #50: “Authority Always Wins”
SUNDAY, JUNE 17 (9:00-10:00 p.m.)
At the Vampire Authority headquarters in New Orleans, Bill and Eric meet Salome (Valentina Cervi) and become acquainted with the Authority’s interrogation techniques. Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) recalls her human life as the madam of the Comstock Brothel in San Francisco, and her first encounter with Eric. Werewolves J.D. (Louis Herthum) and Rikki (Kelly Overton) pay tribute to Marcus, but Alcide refuses to participate or take his rightful place as the new packmaster. Martha Bozeman (Dale Dickey) shows up wanting to see her granddaughter, causing conflict for Sam and Luna (Janina Gavankar). Fearing Russell’s return, Sookie procures a home-protection system; Arlene (Carrie Preston) tries to get to the bottom of Terry’s erratic behavior; Steve Newlin stops by with an offer for Jessica; and Jason feels the brunt of his womanizing ways.
Episode #51: “Whatever I Am, You Made Me”
SUNDAY, JUNE 24 (9:00-10:00 p.m.)
Bill and Eric barter for their lives with the Authority Chancellors and their leader, Roman (Christopher Meloni). Salome and Roman enlist a new ally in the face of Russell’s return. Sookie goes to Fangtasia to ask for help from Pam, who is still caught up in her memories of Eric and the strange murders at the Comstock Brothel. Andy’s dalliance with Holly (Lauren Bowles) comes back to bite him in the butt; later, he’s visited by Gordon (Steve Rankin) and Barbara Pelt (Linda Purl), who are searching for Debbie. Jason bumps into an old high school teacher, but their reunion brings up conflicting feelings.
Of course, none of that really answers the bigger questions, like who set loose Russell Edgington from his concrete crypt? What's going to become of Tara since we know Rutina Wesley is cast for season 5? And who exactly sired Steve Newlin? But it's a start! More of Jessica partying in college and the Vampire Authority with Christopher Meloni, please!
