It only took three episodes of “True Blood” season 5 for it to happen — but now, Sookie Stackhouse seems to yet again be front and center with what is happening with Bill Compton and Eric Northman.
After spending some time pleading with the Authority to save their lives, these two vampires on Sunday night’s new episode will realize that Sookie is one of the only people who really knows about Russell Edgington (outside of Pam) so with that they decide to seek her help in trying to track the infamous vampire down. Is Sookie going to be receptive to this? Based on what Eric says, Anna Paquin’s character really doesn’t have any interest in being around either one of them anymore.
Unfortunately for our favorite vampires, Sookie is going to be a little bit preoccupied with finding out that Alcide told Debbie’s parents about her dying. Did he add to it the fact that Sookie is the one responsible? We don’t know yet, but even with the guy being angry we have a hard time seeing him selling out someone who he obvious has some romantic feelings for.
Finally, Sookie also still has a problem known as Tara running around Bon Temps — even if the hope now is that Pam is going to start actually taking her under her wing as her creator. Considering that Tara looked ready to take her own life in a tanning bed last week, it certainly looks like she has a long ways to go to get her thinking like a vampire.
How do you think that Bill and Eric want to use Sookie in their search for Russell? Take a look at the promo for “We’ll Meet Again” below.
