True Blood fans may still be mourning the loss of Tara, but a few familiar faces returned to the HBO show on Sunday to make the grief a little more bearable – that is, until more people start dying.
Although she met the true death in season 4, the deliciously austere Nan Flanagan appears in a 1980s flashback that had the seemingly ever-nude Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) forced by a group of hit men to choose between saving the life of his beloved progeny, Pam, over his current human paramour.
In the present day, Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) uses the fact that the villainous Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) survived the season 6 finale to motivate Eric out of his Hep-V-infected funk and on a vindictive mission of revenge that ends with the former pastor's wife hiding in a wine cellar as her yogi (and bed partner) is murdered by the same hit men Eric met back in 1986.
And there is murder in Bon Temps as well.

Spoiler Alert: Things in Bon Temps, Louisiana, are going from bad to worse.
After last week's episode of True Blood – where a peaceful town barbecue ravaged by an unknown band of diseased vamps left many dead, including Rutina Wesley's formidable character, Tara – the show picks up in the eerie aftermath.
Dazed and confused, citizens gather at the local church, where Mayor Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) instructs them all to go and help clean up the mess the previous day's massacre left behind, while he and the police set out to find the culprits.

True Blood vampires may cry tears of blood, but cast members on HBO's long-running horror hit wept the real salty thing as they read the script for the show's final episode.
"It kind of snuck up on me," Anna Paquin told PEOPLE at Tuesday's premiere of the show's seventh and final season at Hollywood's Chinese Theater.
Paquin, 31, admitted she was one of several cast members who found themselves overcome by emotions during the final script run-through, but because the show is still shooting, she had more pressing matters on her mind.
"We're still working 15 hours a day, so there's not been a lot of reflection yet," she admitted. "I'm just more worried about whether or not I will know my lines tomorrow!"

[YOUTUBE "imW392e6XR0"] Jimmy Kimmel brought back his fantastic Celebrities Read Mean Tweets About Themselves segment Wednesday night, with a shocking twist. This time, a surprising number of the mean Tweets were actually ... good?
Sure, there were the requisite amounts of unfathomable abuse – why does Andy Garcia, of all people, have haters? – and impenetrable obscenities (particularly the ones aimed at Matthew McConaughey). But other Tweets showed a heretofore-unobserved level of wit that made their targets suppress a chuckle. Even David Blaine thought that David Blaine joke was pretty solid!
