Waiting sure has sucked, but the wait is over – the season 5 premiere of True Blood airs tonight on HBO. With some major new villains (or at least some new vamps who are going to be a challenge) heading our way and some old familiar faces eager to sink their fangs back into the neck of Bon Temps residents, everyone here is getting pumped.
Last season ended with a cliffhanger so, needless to say, fans will be eager to settle back into their TruB routine and find out what happened to Tara who apparently died at the end of the season and their other favorite characters.
On tonight’s show as the dust settles in Bon Temps, Sam and Luna’s plans for a fresh start are interrupted by a new arrival, hell-bent on revenge. Meanwhile: Sookie’s vow for a life without vampires is put to the test; Lafayette struggles with his latest acquisition; Patrick calls in a favor from Terry, that will put his relationship with Arlene under pressure.
Jessica takes a backseat, while Jason caters for an unwelcome house guest; Pam tries to make amends, and Bill and Eric plan their escape from the forces now pursuing them, but are soon drawn into a plot that will shatter the very foundations of the vampire hierarchy, and bring them face to face with their deadliest enemy.
