Before “Game of Thrones” Sunday night, HBO continued its recent tradition and gave us another look at “True Blood’s” upcoming fifth season — though on this occasion, they really ended up sharing more details than ever.
In the video below, you can see all sorts of highlights when it comes to what to expect — from Bill and Eric working together to Christopher Meloni’s Roman to even Sookie and Alcide getting much closer than they ever have before. There’s not necessarily much in the way of a defined plot lined up, but we know that one of the primary villains for the season is going to yet again be Denis O’Hare’s Russell Edgington — who was unearthed from his cement prison during last year’s finale. However, don’t expect him to be the only person tearing through Bon Temps.
The only thing that is still unclear in this trailer is the actual fate of Rutina Wesley’s Tara, who has been used in promotional materials for the season despite her supposedly being on death’s door. While things certainly don’t look good for the character right now, you can never devalue the possibility of something supernatural happening that causes her to live to see another day.
What do you think about this trailer? “True Blood” season 5 premieres on HBO Sunday, June 10 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern.
