Do You Bleed the Fifth?

I have not really been a big fan of the True Blood Marketing program as of late so you will find it hard pressed to impress me with one of their marketing posters. Surprise! This is one I find halfway decent and quite catchy, even though I am still waiting for them to rock my world. If you try to tell anyone I said that I will just simply:

Did you think that was all I had for you? Well, you thought wrong….HA! HBO has released the first three episode synopsis and I am willing to share them with you all. Now, if you don’t want to be spoiled, then I suggest you turn away now because I am going to post them!

SUNDAY, JUNE 10 “Turn! Turn! Turn!”
Sookie (Anna Paquin) and Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) struggle with the aftermath of Tara’s (Rutina Wesley) shooting, while also cleaning up after Debbie Pelt. Meanwhile, Bill (Stephen Moyer) and Eric (Alexander Skarsgård), cleaning up a mess of their own, are visited by the Vampire Authority, one of whom is Nora (Lucy Griffiths), a woman from Eric’s past. In search of the missing Marcus, Alcide’s (Joe Manganiello) werewolf pack comes after Sam (Sam Trammell). With Bill away, Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) enjoys her new freedom by partying with local college kids; Jason (Ryan Kwanten) is visited by the recently turned Rev. Steve Newlin (Michael McMillian); Terry’s (Todd Lowe) PTSD is reignited by Patrick Devins (Scott Foley), an old Iraq War buddy; and Alcide turns up at Sookie’s to warn her about the recently resurfaced Russell Edgington (Denis O’Hare).

While Dad’s away, the kid must play! Since one of my fellow bloggers are going to write a review on this episode and I will need to see it first to offer my opinion. I could base my opinion on the three synopsis alone but I will refrain!

SUNDAY, JUNE 17 “Authority Always Wins”
At the Vampire Authority headquarters in New Orleans, Bill and Eric meet Salome (Valentina Cervi) and become acquainted with the Authority’s interrogation techniques. Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) recalls her human life as the madam of the Comstock Brothel in San Francisco, and her first encounter with Eric. Werewolves J.D. (Louis Herthum) and Rikki (Kelly Overton) pay tribute to Marcus, but Alcide refuses to participate or take his rightful place as the new packmaster. Martha Bozeman (Dale Dickey) shows up wanting to see her granddaughter, causing conflict for Sam and Luna (Janina Gavankar). Fearing Russell’s return, Sookie procures a home-protection system; Arlene (Carrie Preston) tries to get to the bottom of Terry’s erratic behavior; Steve Newlin stops by with an offer for Jessica; and Jason feels the brunt of his womanizing ways.

Steve Newlin’s a womanizer? Who would have thunk it? I wonder what that offer is? I got my suspicions but once again I will refrain right now from speaking out!

SUNDAY, JUNE 24 “Whatever I Am, You Made Me”
Bill and Eric barter for their lives with the Authority Chancellors and their leader, Roman (Christopher Meloni). Salome and Roman enlist a new ally in the face of Russell’s return. Sookie goes to Fangtasia to ask for help from Pam, who is still caught up in her memories of Eric and the strange murders at the Comstock Brothel. Andy’s dalliance with Holly (Lauren Bowles) comes back to bite him in the butt; later, he’s visited by Gordon (Steve Rankin) and Barbara Pelt (Linda Purl), who are searching for Debbie. Jason bumps into an old high school teacher, but their reunion brings up conflicting feelings.

Jason, having conflicted feelings? SHUT THE FRONT DOOR! Sookie asks Pam for help, that should go over real well! *rolls eyes*

What do you think of the poster and the three synopsis? Don’t worry you can BLEED THE FIFTH, otherwise sound off below.

I am an avid book reader and when I am not writing for these two (now three) blogs that is what I am doing.

  1. Did a third grader make this posters or something?

  2. I think that means Jason’s womanizing ways, not Steve Newlin. There is no way he could ever be a womanizer.

  3. That poster does nothing for me …..the best poster they have is the Eric on cover one …..that’s all they need to pique peoples interest ….the rest of these posters have been crap!

  4. I see HBO spent the BIG BUCKS on these latest posters :roll: …I think I’ll just “Bleed the Fifth” on this one. LOL

    As for the summaries…there’s nothing really new in them, except for more details from the summaries we posted earlier.

  5. Well, I can say that during the preview Sunday night before we watched Game of Thrones, my husband and I both agreed that there looks like there is going to be more action of the non-sexual variety this season. Oddly, he seems to be rather looking forward to the new season. I’m anxious to see how it all works out, but am fearful of the mess that has been made of our beloved characters.

    Right now, I think I’m more devastated at the idea that I have only two episodes left of GoT than I am excited that I have less than three weeks till TB begins again. What does that say for the state AB has put things?

  6. Given the posters already released, I’m thinking Tara lives, or is changed. That’s just ridiculous. Let. That. Character. Go. And what exactly was wrong with Pam’s backstory from the books? Why on EARTH did she have to be a brothel madam? Looks like Jessica’s character is going to back slide. It seemed like her “rebellion” days were behind her. I actually liked how Bill and Jessica’s relationship evolved in season 4. I read these synopses and I could really care less about Sam or Terry.

    I’m still looking forward to season 5, but there’s a lot of storylines that I just don’t care about.

    • Yes, unfortunately Tara will be a vampire and Pam will do the turning. We all expected that, but finding out for sure just makes me even less excited for this season.

  7. Is it kind of weird that the first thing I noticed was the “Comstock Brothal” that’s a strange name. Is it a place? (I’m European I don’t know these things!) Glad to see Pam’s back-story over 2 episodes. Eric being turned by Godric was completely awesome but way too short. I thought at first Pam would be telling her story to Sookie (and maybe Tara) but it sounds like she is just reminiscing to herself now?

  8. don’t know if its just my problem, but what always bothers me is that in all the summaries and also in interviews they are always name Bill first, its bill and ‘eric not Eric and Bill, don*t know but I am just pissed with these little things, just don’t want to see Eric getting a minor role alongside the leading male f the show…

  9. I definately “Bleed the Fifth” on these Synopsis. I’m still ROTFLMAO at the latest lame poster that HBO has put out for this show. Its’ like it doesn’t give a sh*t about the show anymore and they are trimming as many corners on cost that they can. I’m hoping that its not an omen that season 5 is the death knell of TB cause I at least want to see a Eric and Sookie HEA ending to this show. I know, I know, its’ wishful thinking on our part, but a girl can dream can’t she?????

  10. There is only one story line we all want to see and we know we aren’t going to get it. Terry blah….. Luna blah …..The Pelts blah……..Andy blah… …Now Sookie going to Fangtasia that could be worth watching if Eric was there, if not blah. Pam’s telling of her first encounter with Eric, I think that is about as good as it’s going to get for me. The heads a HBO have to know what a train wreck they have. Please let someone try and save this show!
