The new season 5 teaser for HBO's True Blood
begins, appropriately enough, with an ending – a grave-digging scene, with Sookie (Anna Paquin
) burying a body.
Is it the body of Tara (Rutina Wesley), last seen getting shot in the season 4 finale? That's just one of many questions raised by the quick flashes we get of the new season, which premieres in June.
It's not all doom and gloom, though. We also get glimpses of Eric (Alexander Skarsgard
) kissing ... well, somebody. And Eric and Sam (Sam Trammell) shirtless.
The voiceover grimly reports that it's vampires, not humans, who were made in God's image. Throw in some scuffling, screaming and bloodletting, and it looks like we're in for another season of death and desire.
