And here's the second part of these character pics, though why aren't there ones of Nora and Salome?
Lafayette Reynolds (Nelsan Ellis): He's involved in helping Sookie dispose of Debbie's body and of course, there's also the thorny issue of Tara as well.
Roman (Chris Meloni): One of the leading members of the Authority and also due to be a major thorn in the side for both Bill and Eric. Also connected with Nora and Salome as well.
Russell Edgington (Denis O'Hare): And he's back ... in the second half of the season apparently. I can't wait to see what manner of hell Russell is going to unleash on everyone.
Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell): Both him and Alcide have to deal with a pack following Marcus's death and then there's his future with Luna as well.
Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin): We're getting a childhood flashback with her and hopefully more on her fae origins as well with the arrival of Claude in Bon Temps. Also, hopefully minimal Bill/Eric pining.
Tara Thornton (Rutina Wesley): Is she alive or dead? Human or vampire? We're about to find out very soon.
True Blood Season 5 airs Sundays at 9pm on HBO from June 10th.
