True Blood has always celebrated the undead, but on Sunday night it was all about celebrating the actually dead.

If all was happy in Bon Temps the last time you watched True Blood, then read no further … then again, things were never that happy in Bon Temps.
Sunday's episode of the HBO drama began with a few phone calls.
Still reeling from the deaths of her best friend Tara and her boyfriend, Alcide, Sookie (Anna Paquin) was tasked with breaking the news of the werewolf's death to his father, Jackson (Robert Patrick), while Jason (Ryan Kwanten) called up his former best friend, Hoyt Fortenberry (Jim Parrack, making his first appearance on the show since season 5), to inform him that his mother had been killed by a vampire.

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!"

In true A-List fashion, Jessica Alba makes walking the red carpet look like a walk in the park.
But when she wants the real deal, she has a more low-key go-to: the Franklin Canyon Park in Los Angeles.
Alba, 30, is among the famous faces teaming up with the Sierra Club to celebrate the great outdoors in a video honoring Earth Day, which is April 22 (check out sierraclub.org/earthday for more).
Also dishing about their "favorite piece of America" for the environmental organization: Oscar winner Octavia Spencer, rocker Bob Weir, New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg and Modern Family breakout star Nolan Gould.

Kristin Bauer's family of six was always meant to be together.
The True Blood actress's rottweiler Asher was the last dog remaining at an adoption event she attended for Best Friends Animal Society.
"That metal truck pulled up and I just couldn't put him in there," she tells PEOPLE. "So the city said, 'Well, do you have $37?' I had a little bag of dog treats and I looked through it and there was $38."
