'True Blood' spoiler alert: Bill reconciles with *e*s***?!

HBO just released the official loglines for True Blood‘s five August episodes and, as per usual, they’re pretty damn spoilery.

Episode #31: “Hitting the Ground”
Debut:  SUNDAY, AUG. 1
“Imperiled by Lorena (Mariana Klaveno), Sookie (Anna Paquin) goes to extremes in her attempt to save Bill (Stephen Moyer)—with unforeseen consequences. Sam (Sam Trammell) infiltrates a dogfighting ring to extricate Tommy (Marshall Allman) from his parents’ (J. Smith Cameron, Cooper Huckabee) greedy influence. Jason (Ryan Kwanten) heads to jail to uncover the truth about Crystal (Lindsay Pulsipher); Summer (Melissa Rauch) makes a home-cooked play for Hoyt’s (Jim Parrack) affections; Debbie (Brit Morgan) vows revenge on Alcide (Joe Manganiello); Eric (Alexander Skarsgård) uses Hadley (Lindsey Haun) as bait to get information from Sophie-Anne (Evan Rachel Wood); Russell (Denis O’Hare) turns his back on the Authority, and on the Magister (Zeljko Ivanek).”

Episode #32: “Night on the Sun”
Debut:  SUNDAY, AUG. 8 (9:00-10:00 p.m.)
“Shaken and disillusioned, Sookie rethinks her relationship with Bill. Sophie-Anne takes up a new residence as Russell plots his next move. Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) and Bill reconcile; Jason throws down the gauntlet in hopes of saving Crystal; Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) gets a surprise visit from his mom, Ruby Jean (Alfre Woodard); Sam tries to keep Tommy in check; Merlotte’s gets a new waitress; Eric proves the depth of his allegiance to Russell.  Sookie finds herself in a vulnerable position when Alcide needs to deal with a family emergency.”

Episode #33:  “Everything Is Broken”
Debut:  SUNDAY, AUG. 15 (9:00-10:00 p.m.)
“With the ratification of the Vampire Rights Amendment at hand, Nan Flanagan (Jessica Tuck) detours to Fangtasia to confront Eric about the Magister’s disappearance. A grief-stricken Russell vows revenge against his foes, vampire and human. Awaking from a slumber, Bill uncovers the truth about Sookie’s true identity. Jason gets unexpected help as he goes up against Felton (James Harvey Ward) and Calvin (Gregory Sporleder). Sam is distressed by Tommy’s attitude; Tara (Rutina Wesley) encounters a new ally and an old tormentor; Hadley introduces Sookie to a new family member; Arlene (Carrie Preston) despairs about her future; Hoyt confronts his true feelings.”

Episode #34: “I Smell a Rat”
Debut: SUNDAY, AUG. 22 (9:00-10:00 p.m.)
“A reluctant Bill warns Sookie about the dangers she will face. Jesus (Kevin Alejandro) is intrigued by the mysterious qualities of V. Sam’s recent fit of rage triggers dark memories. Eric takes precautions and fulfills a wish; Arlene turns to Holly (Lauren Bowles) for help with a pressing problem; Jason deals with the unexpected, both with Tara and Crystal; Jessica is torn between Tommy and Hoyt. After communing with Talbot (Theo Alexander), Russell promises to extract vengeance on his enemies.”

Episode #35: “Fresh Blood”
Debut:  SUNDAY, AUG. 29 (9:00-10:00 p.m.)
“Bill tries to earn back Sookie’s trust, but ends up bringing her face-to-face with fresh dangers. Knowing he’s no physical match for the King, Eric tempts Russell with the “ultimate vampire dream.” Jason tries to wrap his head around Crystal’s revelation. Sam embraces his dark side, alienating everyone except Tara. Hoyt and Jessica take their romance to the next level; with Holly’s help, Arlene puts her future in the hands of a goddess; post V-trip, Lafayette struggles with new demons.”

    Wait, wait, wait: What about that sexy beast known as Franklin Mott? Ah, wait, don’t tell me! Nooooo.

    • me

      I can’t watch this convoluted mess of a show anymore.

      • Chris

        Seeing how your reply has nothing to do with the first comment…Your comment is clearly a little troll attempt at degrading a show… Don’t even have the balls to use your real name? lol

      • ythu

        What this is the best show ever, please don’t post if yu have nothing great to say about the best show on TV. I am so looking forward to these final episodes of the series.

      • Brant

        what? I don’t like trolls either, but “please don’t post if yu have nothing great to say about the best show on TV”. This is a US-based entertainment site – not a circa 1970’s Soviet Bloc satellite country. People can say what they want.

        Sure, its a convoluted mess. Some people (like me) like the chaos. “me” doesn’t – it’s a valid criticism. What isn’t valid is your fascist and poorly presented objection.

        Also – these aren’t the final episodes of the series – just the season.

      • ythu

        your sooooooooo mean rant

      • HELLO

        I love younger men.
        I have dated only men at least 10 years younger and as much as 17 years younger than me for many years.
        I love the energy and a nice tight bod. Older men just aren’t the same, different mentality.llkh.
        I seem to have more in common with younger guys. They’re actually more fun and are usually more interested in me.
        I’m flattered. I think younger men like cougars because they have no agenda,
        don’t usually want to get married and are usually very independent and don’t need a man to take care of them.
        I meet younger men on this website:10Year gap.com

      • me

        Seriously, why do you read spoilers and spill evil all over comments if you find this show, quote “A convulted mess” ?
        Go watch Golden Girls and let us trubies enjoy the spoilers we had been craving for.

      • Tracy

        @ me 5/17/10 5:31pm……I agree, you absolutely should not watch shows you do not understand. It is probably past your bedtime anyway. Anyhow….True Blood is the best show on TV. Can’t wait to catch tonight’s episode!

    • Olive

      “Tara (Rutina Wesley) encounters a new ally and an old tormentor”

      I’d bet money that the encounter is with Franklin Mott


        LOL…..Yep, I was thinking she got rid of him and he’s back!! LMAO.. And SAM alienates everyone except TARA, Yay!! I love Sam and Tara, but I also love Franklin…Too difficult!! I’ll take all..

    • BFD


    • Tiffanie

      Franklin should be called by his “maker” to make ammends for his bad behavior

  • Kelsey

    I have a bad feeling about what’s going to happen to Franklin. :-(

    • Olive

      He’s sticking around at least for another season.

  • Ali

    so much is happening! my brain is going to explode! ahhh!

    • Kelly

      Why even post all of this? I haven’t read the books, but I’ve read some spoilers from this site before, but we haven’t met more than half the people in this write-up. (Crystal, Hadley, Felton, Calvin, Summer?)

      • Peach

        We’ve met 3 of those at least. Calvin and Crystal are the folks in Hotshot that Lafayette went to talk to about selling V, and Hadley is Sookie’s cousin we saw who lives with Sophie-Anne back in Season 1 or 2.

      • Kaylin

        Not sure who Summer is, but we’ve met the rest or at least they’ve been mentioned. Maybe you don’t know their names since you don’t read the books but they have been shown several times. Hadley is Sookie’s cousin who is Sophie-Anne’s little blond fangbanger (shown last season when Bill and Eric visit S-A; she plays yahtzee with them). Crystal is the blond girl who’s been wandering around out in Hotshot (Jason saw her once, and she was in this past episode too: she says, “I ain’t his momma” when Calvin tells her to get Felton for dinner). Calvin is the guy Lafayette tried to sell the V to, last episode. Felton has been mentioned a couple times but not shown, I think (unless he was the guy Jason tackled in the meth raid).

      • Brant

        It says “spoiler-alert” in the title. If you lack the self-control to abstain from a click-thru, you’ll get no sympathy here.

    • Emilio

      ditto on so much going on !!!!
      but love the show and am thinking about ordering some “V” from the shows website.
      TB is driving me insane…a few times last month I saddled up to the bar and coldly asked the btender if she had any “V” we both got a kick out of it as she was a hardcore TB fan. It did get me a free beer!

      went to watch the show at a friends last week but I “wouldn’t come in” until I made him ask me in … I got TB fever!

  • protoscholar

    ok – so bits of books 3 and 5. BUT WHAT ABOUT BOOK 4????????? Sookie and Eric!!!!!

    • Bianca

      I don’t read the books, though I have been trying to get a hold on them, but I do remember reading somewhere that they don’t follow the book exactly even though it is based off of the novels. They add their own twist and make it their own.

  • Apu

    Sounds like Theo is gonna bite the dust..

    • Olive

      Good riddens

    • Amy Leigh

      Who’s Theo? Do you mean Talbot, Russell’s lover?

  • Sarah

    Aww, are we going to meet Hunter? :)

    • scarlett

      I can’t wait to see them do plamic reconstructions!! Wow that’s gonna be amazing!

    • Olive

      Yes! There was a casting call for his character.

  • aleksa

    “Dark side” Sam? NoooOOOooo!

  • Kate

    Sarah, that was my first reaction too (and also, okay, is Hadley dead already, not vampire dead obviously if you read the books). And don’t worry, Sam is the most reliable guy in the whole series, he returns, I am guessing this might be Anna Paquin, you have to play a scene with all the wolves and they you have to be friendly with the lion because that will actually be Sam.

    • mary q contrary

      thanks loads.

    • Phil


      • LindyLu

        I HAVE read ALL of the books… and am still confused by some of the posts & comments here. Kudos to AB for keeping things fresh & keeping us (as a VERY diverse audience) guessing!

    • Erin

      I echo Phil’s ‘huh’ and mary’s ‘thanks loads’. This post is just reposting HBO’s episode descriptions which entail basic spoilers for the next few episodes. Some of us haven’t read the books and don’t particularly care for any massive and possibly long-reaching spoilers.

      • who cares

        then why would you read an article with the headline ‘spoiler alert’ you fool

      • cathy

        the show isnt following the books that much.AB has added alot of characters that are not in the books.and the story lines are different

  • CindyC

    Where’s Pam?

    • Valley Girl

      Yes, where is Pam? She (Bauer) can’t be THAT busy playing a preacher’s wife on “The Secret Life of the American Teenager”… Team Pam!

    • Olive

      Exactly! She’s suppose to be on full-time status now but besides the first episode, (where she stole the show) she’s barely gets a scene each episode. Most people love her. Team Pam all the way. But don’t worry, next season she’ll play a pivotal role.

      • Yve

        I hope the next season will be like book 4…. i LOVE book 4!!!!!!!

  • Liz

    NO! I want Sookie with Bill please!!

    • Tanya

      No, not Bill. Can’t wait for that relationship to be over already!!!! I hope it’s Hunter we get to meet, can’t wait to see Holly either! And as far as Hadley goes… wow. Can’t wait on that either!! I can’t even relate the books into the show anymore… so many changes!

      • Yve

        as long as season 4 turns out to be really close to book 4 i’m fine… ERIC & SOOKIE :D :D :D :D

      • MKR

        Stephen Moyer just said on Regis and Kelly that the show is moving farther and farther away from the books so I wouldn’t count on it. ;)

      • k

        read an interview from alan boll and he claims that eventually sookie and eric will become an item because it is fated in the books.. or something to that nature. SO HA! :-)

      • Yve

        it can move further away after book 4… Only because anna and stephen are together doesn’t mean bill and sookie have to stay together… ERIC & SOOKIE!!!!!!!!

    • Icy

      I want Sookie with Bill too. I don’t mind her getting with Eric for a while, but eventually I want her to end up with Bill

      • Yve

        SPOILER! Until now (Book 10) she did not get back with Bill! SO Bill is not important to me although i like him very much!!!

    • Lory

      for god sake no more bill!!!
      we want sookie & eric they are the best romance and eric is soo hot!!

    • cathy

      BIll and sookie will always have a connection . In tb AB has spoken.since those 2 are the stars couble of the show..ppl show is not the same as the books.get the book out of your heads and u may just not get a headache and enjoy the show

  • LA

    No mention of Pam makes me very worried.

    • orville

      Nah–they can’t make her a regular cast member just to kill her off.

  • buzz

    “Hoyt and Jessica take their romance to the next level”

    Do you think she will bite him? Or even turn him??

    • kaspi

      Jason has called Hoyt “Bubba” a number of times. I know who Bubba is in the books but I’m wondering if the nickname Bubba isn’t foreshadowing Hoyt’s future.

      • sarah

        … so he goes back in time and is really elvis and then turned into a vampire by jessica..? don’t see how bubba/elvis can connect with hoyt.

      • mary

        Yes im so glad someone else caught this i posted this like after the first episode and no one seemed to agree … if hoyt is playing the bubba role then in the end hoyt will save the day

  • mell

    im soo confused, and I don’t care! im lovin these spoilers!!! love, love, love:)

  • Joe

    The show needs more gay sex

    • Chris

      LOL, you’ll get it very soon.

    • Yve


    • Tarc


    • YESSSSS.

    • MKR

      Three words: Eric and Talbot

      • ksen820

        Eric and ANYONE is a good combination ;)

      • mary

        yes yes yes !

    • sharon falconer

      YES YES and YES

    • Yve

      Lafayett will have an affair with Jesus… so there you have your gay love… leave eric alone :P

      • aggie
