It’s that time of the year Truebies! Waiting no longer sucks as HBO brings back our favorite vampire show “True Blood” tonight at 9PM EST. Tonight on HBO marks the season five premiere of the hit vampire show with its new episode titled “Turn, Turn, Turn”. If you need to get caught up on where we left our favorite Bon Temps residents, you can peruse the recap of the season four finale episode titled “And When I Die”.
WARNING: This post contains obvious spoilers for the fifth season premiere of HBO’s True Blood.
We don’t know what’s going to happen on tonight’s show, but we’ve been spoiling the new season all along. Here’s a brief primer of what went down in season four: Lafayette is a medium, Jesus died, Sookie doesn’t want to be with Eric or Bill, Debbie shoots Tara in the head and someone has unleashed Russell Edgington back into the world.
Here is the official synopsis from HBO on tonight’s episode: In the fifth-season premiere, Sookie and Lafayette are reeling from Tara’s shooting, but there is also the matter of cleaning up Debbie Pelt’s blood. Meanwhile, Bill and Eric face a new threat from the Authority; Marcus’ disappearance sends his wolf pack after Sam; Jessica parties with her human peers; Jason has a reunion with Rev. Steve Newlin; a visit from Terry’s war buddy brings back his PTSD; and Alcide warns Sookie about Russell Edgington’s return.
Dale Dickey joins the cast this season as Marcus’ mother, who is likely looking to exact her revenge on Sam and/or Alcide for slaying her pup. Who will she go after?
In addition, we already know that the Reverend Steve Newlin has also been turned into the one thing that he has hated the most: a vampire. Who turned him?
Also featured this series is Godric’s other progeny, technically Eric’s sister Nora. She will be played by Lucy Griffiths. The character of Nora is not actually featured in Charlaine Harris’ books, but she has been described as “intelligent, intimidating, cool under pressure and a very good liar”, according to “TV Line”.
