Tonight on HBO is an all new episode of True Blood. On tonight’s show Eric and Bill have doubts they will survive the search for Russell. Remember our heroes decided not to kill Russell Edgington and instead buried him in concrete. Now they have to find him, in hopes they will please Roman and the rest of the Vampire Authority. If you missed last week’s show called “Whatever I am, You Made Me” we have a full and detailed recap here for you.
Spoiler alert: If you’re one of those people who doesn’t like spoilers, stop reading now! We have some juicy spoilers for you about the season 5 episode 4 of HBO’s “True Blood”.
True Blood is really heating up and getting fangtastic, are you love it as much as me? On last week’s episode the Pelts came to town looking for their homicidal V addicted daughter Debbie. They were not having a lot of success finding her. Sookie finally came clean to Alcide and admitted she was the one who did the deed and murdered Debbie. The boys, Eric and Bil,l negotiated a deal with Roman and the rest of the Vampire Authority to find Russel,l who has somehow been unearthed from the concrete they buried him in. Tara continued to be totally pissed off at Sookie and Lafayette and Sam came to her aid. I am hoping we get to see more of Russell tonight, he is one of my favorite characters!
Official HBO synopsis of tonight’s episode: “Eric and Bill have doubts they wl,l survive the search for Russell. Sookie opens up to Alcide. An irate Lafayette unwittingly puts Sookie’s life in danger. At Authority headquarters, Roman and Salome continue interrogating Nora about the Sanguinistas – and a possible traitor within the Council. Pam forces Tara to toe the line; Andy and Jason go to a burlesque party; Sam’s shifter friends invite him for a run; Terry flashes back to a deadly night in Iraq; Hoyt tests the fangbanger waters; Sookie drowns her sorrows.”
Sookie is totally fed up lying and wants to come clean to everyone because she feels she is destroying people’s lives. Her guilt is just killing her, she came clean with Alcide about killing Debbie last week. This week Alcide goes to the Pelts to tell them what happened to Debbie. However, I don’t think he will be telling them the truth. Although he was not happy when Sookie told him she killed Debbie, I think Alcide will continue to protect Sookie and fabricate a story. Sookie also comes clean with Jason this week and lets him know she killed Debbie. She wants to turn herself in. Will Jason let her?
We have been learning this season that Arlene’s beau Terry’s past may be more complicated than we originally thought, especially with Patrick’s introduction. On tonight’s show we are going to get a lot of flashbacks into Terry’s past when he was in the war. We should get some more insight into what is going on between Patrick and Terry. Remember last week Terry left town and Arlene told him she would not be there when he got back. I wonder if the powers that be intend to split Arlene and Terry up? And where is Arlene’s freaky possessed kid this season?
It also looks like from the preview that Eric attacks Pam. Eric is released from the Vampire Authority Headquarters and heads back to Fangtasia and Pam tries to convince him to “Let bygones be bygones.” Eric feels Tara’s presence in the room and asks Pam about it and she tells him she turned her and congratulates him on being a grandfather. From the scene it looks like Eric is less than pleased with the news.
Tonight’s episode is going to be an exciting one, that you won’t want to miss, so be sure to tune in for our live coverage HBO’s True Blood tonight at 9PM EST! While you wait for our recap hit the comments and let us know what you thought of last week’s episode 3 of True Blood season 5!

He reminds Pam she is a maker now and their blood will thrive. He asks her if she understands and he kissed her. Pam is devastated.

Jason asks Hadley if Sookie knows she is there. Hadley is surprised that Sookie is alive. Hadley tells Jason she is hear because Vampires want to eat all the Fairies so she brought her son here to protect him.
Jason tells her Sookie tried it with Fairies and it did not work. Jason tells Hadley that Sookie is safer with Vampires. Hadley tells him NO, Vampires want to drink fairies’ blood and they will kill her just like they killed Jason’s parents.
At that moment one of the other fairies comes over and interrupts and tells Hadley she said too much, they take her away.
Jason tries to get to her but they won’t let him. Andy tries to help Jason and they are both kicked out of the fairy brothel.
