True Blood Says Goodbye to Another Beloved Character

Originally posted 07/06/2014 11:55PM

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 Season 5 Teaser Premieres – Can You Dig It?

Originally posted 04/02/2012 09:05AM



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.
