And while I still have to get my hands on the latest book, Deadlocked, I have found some more spoilers in relation to True Blood's upcoming fifth year. Again, some pretty huge spoilers, so back away if you don't want to know anything about the new season.
Waiting Sucks: Eric & Pam
I have to admit that I'm a little disheartened to see that both Eric and Pam are still at odds with each other and this time around, he seems to think that she's responsible for digging up Russell Edgington as well. I can sort of see why Eric might come to that conclusion but even still, Pam wouldn't, would she?
And we have our first promotional poster of the fifth season with I presume Jessica crying. It looks pretty good but then again, so do the synopsis for the first three episodes of the new season ...
Episode 5.01 - Turn! Turn! Turn!
and Lafayette clean up the Tara and Debbie Pelt mess; Bill and Eric are
visited by the Vampire Authority; Sam and Alcide deal with an angry
werewolf pack. (Written by Brian Buckner; directed by Daniel Minahan)
(TV-MA) [AC, AL, V, N] ESP Playdates: 10, 13, 14 and 16
Episode 5.02 - Authority Always Wins
resurfaces in Bon Temps; Pam recalls her human life and first encounter

headquarters. (Written by Mark Hudis; directed by Michael Lehmann.)

Episode 5.03 - Whatever I Am, You Made Me

Tara. (Written by Raelle Tucker; directed by David Petrarca.) (TV-MA)
[AC, AL, V, N] ESP Playdates: 24, 27, 28 and 30
Why do I get the feeling that Tara might become a member of the undead?
Elsewhere promo pictures and trailers are surfacing for our new vampires. Not only do we see both Nora (Lucy Griffiths) and Salome (Valentina Cervi) in action but we also get to meet Chris Meloni's Roman and he certainly looks like a power player alright. Overall, this is shaping up to another interesting year for the Southern vampire drama series. Oh and there's an interview with the main cast due to air on HBO from May 27th as well in order to further psyche people for the new season.
