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.

Don't Be a Grouch: Watch This Sesame Street Parody of True Blood

Originally posted 06/23/2014 01:00PM

In honor of True Blood's final-season premiere Sunday night, Sesame Street brought back its "True Mud" parody, which replaces all the HBO series's sex and violence with adorable lessons about rhyming.

The plot is simple enough for a 4-year-old to follow: A puppet version of Bill Compton appears at Merlotte's Bar and Grill, in desperate need of some "true mud." Unfortunately for him, the patrons only want to give him things that sound like mud – from cud, to a spud, to some guy named Bud.

True Blood's Chris Bauer Reveals His Drug and Alcohol Past

Originally posted 06/22/2014 06:05PM

His TV alter ego, Sheriff Andy Bellefleur on HBO's True Blood, has seen his share of mysterious pasts. But in real life, Chris Bauer has been harboring a dark secret of his own.

The actor, 47, has been sober for seven years, following a decades-long battle with drugs and alcohol.

"It was a slow-motion catastrophe," Bauer tells PEOPLE. "I wasn't just out of control, I was 100 percent off my path."

Finally choosing to reveal his story is "intuitive and spontaneous," Bauer says. "I got sober right after I shot the pilot for True Blood. Now that it's winding down, I'm in touch with how much my life has changed from getting my act together."

True Blood: Tears as Stars Say Emotional Goodbye to the Show

Originally posted 06/22/2014 11:15AM

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!"
