The season 5 premiere of “True Blood” is coming soon on June 10, and we now have something rather juicy to sink our teeth into — the official synopsis from the first episode (entitled “Turn! Turn! Turn!”) has made its way online.
The description suggests that we will be seeing some new characters rather early on this season — including the Vampire Authority and Scott Foley (who first stopped by in the season 4 finale). Denis O’Hare will also be making his first appearance since the season 3 finale as Russell Edgington:
“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).”
Are there a ton of stories to follow? Sure, but this seems to be the way in which “True Blood” operates. For those wanting some extra scoop, the June 17 and 24 episodes are going to be titled “Authority Always Wins” and “Whatever I Am, You Made Me.”
What do you expect to see happen this season?
