Warning: Spoilers below!
Season 5 of True Blood is only a WEEK away! Woo! To tide you over until then I have brought you goodies galore! Today we have a brand new fan poster (pictured right), a spoiler-filled interview from a cast member AND three clips from “Turn! Turn! Turn!”, which is the first episode of Season 5. See all of the awesomeness below!
Here come the spoilers! As we all remember from the season finale last year, Tara was shot in the head by the psychotic Debbie Pelt. No one knew if she was going to survive or not and that was the big cliff hanger of the season. However, when the cast photos for Season 5 were released and fans saw the photo of Tara, we all figured she survived. Now, thanks to actress Rutina Wesley, better known as Tara, we know for sure that Tara will be back.
“[I’m] definitely coming back, just can’t tell you quite how. The interesting thing, for me, is the fans watching Tara recover. She kind of becomes a new woman. The journey she’s about to embark on is out of control.” said Rutina Wesley in an interview with E! Online.
So there you have it, Tara is indeed coming back.
Now for the videos! HBO has released three clips from the first episode of Season 5. See them below, but first, check out the plot synopsis for “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). Written by Brian Buckner; directed by Daniel Minahan.”
