'True Blood' season 5, episode 5 preview

By Louie Aronowitz,

The weekend is getting so close I can almost smell it. No, I don’t care about Friday and Saturday night, I’m talking about Sunday night HBO. I mean, let’s be serious, the high point of the week is watching Alexander Skarsgard, and a bunch of extras, run around sucking each other’s blood and whatnot. Yes, I am talking about everybody’s favorite fang-drama, True Blood.

Today, I have two exclusive clips that should quench your thirst for the HBO+ for a few moments. This first preview is a tender bonding moment between Jessica and Tara. It appears Jessica is illuminating some of the positive aspects of vampiracy for Tara, who is beginning to de-bitter-fy, and slowly accept who she has become. It’s a nice change of pace to see Jessica not only acting mature, like a seasoned vamp, but using what she has learned to help a new fanger, as Bill did for her years ago.

The next scene has Eric and Bill discovering this is their final night; their iStakes are set to deliver the true death at dawn, presumably unless they find and kill Russell Edgington before then. This hopefully means we will get more of the joint Team “Beric” this week, hunting down Russell.

So what do you think? Will Beric find Russell, or simply find a way to elude the truth death? And as for Tara and Jess, will they become “BVFF”s (best vampire friends forever)? Leave me a comment telling me what you think is going to happen!

*PS – BVFFs should be pronounced as “Biv-Ifs”, unless you prefer BUFFs: best undead friends forever?
