Warning: Bloody good 'True Blood' spoilers

True-blood_l HBO just released the titles and extended loglines for all five of True Blood‘s August episodes and man, they are juicy. How juicy? So juicy that I’m inclined to forgive them for withholding fresh Blood from me last Sunday. Have a look-see yourself…

Aug. 2: “Release Me”
Betrayed by Daphne, Sam finds himself in an unenviable predicament at the hands of Maryann and her wild-eyed minions. Imprisoned with Hugo in the F.O.T.S. church, Sookie uses her telepathic powers to reach out to Bill, who’s being detained at the hotel by a stubbornly obsessive Lorena. After crossing a line with the Newlins, a fearful Jason tries to sever his ties with the Fellowship of the Sun, but gets plenty of resistance from Steve and his enforcer Gabe.

Crave more Blood? Good ’cause four more spoilery paragraphs await you after the jump…

Aug. 9: “Timebomb”
Sookie’s captivity takes an unexpected turn when Eric arrives to do his
master’s bidding on the eve of the Fellowship’s lockdown. In Bon Temps,
Sam finds himself in hot water after making a gruesome discovery at
Merlotte’s, and Andy proves no help in coming to his defense. Sent home
by Bill, Jessica and Hoyt learn that when it comes to sex, every time
is the first time. Tara and Eggs devour a mysterious meal prepared by
Maryann, with unexpected results. After Jason pays off his debt to the
vampires, Godric looks to enlighten his more single-minded followers.

Aug. 16: “I Will Rise Up”
A wounded Eric plays Sookie for a sucker, to Bill’s dismay, and ends up
getting inside her head. Later, Sookie and Jason bond over their recent
adventures. Blaming Eggs for Tara’s bruises and bizarre behavior,
Lafayette and Lettie Mae try to figure out a way to pry their kin from
Maryann’s clutches. Hoyt defends his relationship with Jessica to
Maxine, to no avail. Jailed by Bud along with a group of Bon Temps
revelers, Sam looks for a way to escape and avoid capture by an
increasingly obsessed Maryann. In Dallas, Eric and the vampires defend
their recent actions to Nan Flanagan and are shocked when Godric
decides to take the fall for their PR disaster.

Aug. 23: “New World in My View”
Sookie, Bill, and Jason return to a Bon Temps turned upside down by
Maryann. Lured to Merlotte’s by Arlene, Sam and Andy find cold comfort
in their refuge from a group of bloodthirsty revelers. Bill discovers
that traditional vampire techniques don’t work on Maryann; Hoyt and
Jessica try to keep a lid on Maxine’s madness; and Sookie tries to push
through the darkness consuming Tara. With all hell breaking loose,
Jason takes the bull by the horns to rescue Sam, at least for the

Aug. 30: “Frenzy”
With the crisis in Bon Temps careening out of control, Bill seeks out
the advice of Sophie-Anne (Evan Rachel Wood), the Vampire Queen of
Louisiana, but must exercise patience before she gives him critical
information. Meanwhile, Sookie and Lafayette find that protecting Tara
from herself is more difficult than they anticipated; a desperate Sam
turns to an unlikely source for assistance; and Jessica tests Hoyt’s
allegiance to Maxine.

    Whoa. Sooooooo good! My only problem with True Blood is that HBO only makes 12 eps per season. oh well, less is more I suppose.

  • Holly C

    OH, I know. I wish that there were more episodes in a season. It feels like we just get a taste of Bon Temps life, and then it’s cruelly ripped away for a year (forever).

  • Ally

    Lafayette vs. Maryann? That’s gonna be fun to watch.

  • Michelle

    Aug. 16 – I have two words: BULLET SUCKING. Hell yes!!!!!!!!

  • Kacey

    I’m on Book 6 right now, so I’m trying to make sense of that with what I’ve been reading, but if I remember to keep them seperate, I have a feeling those are going to be awesome episodes.

  • EveatEden

    WTH is this season even about? Those blurbs bear sooooo little resemblance to the books, ugh. They just make me wanna cry! I love the books and last season the show was great, a few changes I could have lived without but not too terrible. This season is just going way too far away from the books for my liking!

  • Amanda

    People really need to accept that the books and the show are two different beasts. Alan Ball has long stated that he plans to stray. Get over it.

  • Boo Radley

    I really enjoy that the TV show is different b/c I don’t know what’s coming next. Last season, I knew all along who the killer was.

    • Tonya

      I agree with your TOTALLY. I love the books, I have read them all multiple times, but, I love the show too because it’s as exciting as the books (sometimes even more) and I don’t know what’s about to happen in every scene. Also, do you find yourself liking or disliking certain TV characters vs book characters? I like TV Bill way more thank book Bill, same for Sam. Somehow I’m still team Eric all the way.

  • Tiffany

    I’m glad it’s different than the book. If it wasn’t, then Lafayette wouldn’t be alive. So kudos, writers for keeping it interesting.

  • Becks

    I agree 100% with Amanda. Those of you who are upset about how the TV show is straying from the series of books should just quit watching if it bothers you that much. I, for one, cannot wait until this week’s episode. This is one of the best shows on TV right now, if not THE best. I can’t wait for the next new episode. I think this season is shaping up to be amazing and Alan Ball’s loyalty to the book series is the last thing on my mind (especially since the books are written so poorly – Harris’ ideas were great, they were just executed badly). In any case, I am crazy about this show and I hope it’s on for many more seasons. I can’t get enough!

  • Sara

    Oh Yea Michelle, I thought the same thing! Glad they aren’t taking that out!! :)

  • JT

    I love the books (and love Charlaine Harris – she is a great writer) but I also like that Alan Ball is comfortable enough with the material to stray from it. I’d rather have his fascinating interpretation and new directions than a line-by-line retread anyday!

  • Helen

    Wow! This series is even better than the last! It keeps us guessing, on the edge of our seats and holding our breathe until the next episode!!!

  • warlord54

    is just awesome

  • Youtuber
