'True Blood' Recap: Season 5 Episode 2 'Authority Always Wins’ 6/17/12

Tonight on HBO is an all new episode of True Blood. On tonight’s show Bill and Eric meet Salome and become acquainted with the Vampire Authority’s interrogation techniques. If you missed last week’s show called ‘Turn, Turn, Turn”, 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 2 of HBO’s “True Blood”.

When we last saw Tara she was going for Sookie’s throat.  Tara was shot at the end of season 4 and we were not sure if she was coming back – but Lafayette convinced Pam on last week’s “True Blood” premiere episode to turn Tara into a vampire.  Pam did warn Lafayette, because Tara was shot in the head, she might not be normal.  In a clip for tonight’s episode “Authority Always Wins,” we see Tara trashing Sookie’s kitchen.  I have a feeling she is not the old Tara anymore.

Official HBO synopsis of tonight’s episode: Eric and Bill try to keep their wits about them when they’re put through the interrogation wringer at the Vampire Authority headquarters in New Orleans. Meanwhile, Pam recalls her first meeting with Eric in early 20th-century San Francisco; Alcide turns his back on Marcus’ wolf pack; Emma’s grandmother comes between Sam and Luna; Steve Newlin wants what he thinks belongs to Jessica; and Jason’s womanizing comes back to haunt him.

We have been wondering when one of my favorite actors Chris Meloni would be first appear on True Blood and TV Line is confirming that he will appear on tonight’s episode. “Meloni’s Vampire Authority bigwig turns up this Sunday,” confirms TV Line.  Chris is playing Roman, one of the oldest vampires in town.

Another new character making their debut on tonight’s episode is Rosalyn Harris who is being played byCougar Town andGeneral Hospital actress Carolyn Hennesy.  Rosalyn is a member of the Vampire Authority and has been for a very long time and calls Texas her home.  In a recent interview Carolyn described her character as “Big hair, a string of pearls, great gams, and a dash of whiskey in her blood cocktails (oh, how she misses steak).”

Eric tells Pam she has a lovely dress and apologizes for all the blood and gives her money to cover the cost of her dress.  She thanks him and he disappears.

Back to the current time at the Vampire Authority Headquarters, Bill is in a chair chained up and a man walks in and he introduces himself as Dieter.  He tells Bill his IV has silver in it and they find it is an effective method to make people talk.

He explains that Nora’s betrayal is punishable by the true death.  He talks to Bill about the bible on the table.  It seems the Vampire Authority believes their bible that predates the old and new testament.  There is someone named Lilith in their bible.

Dieter asks Bill if he believes in the literal translation of the Vampire Bible.  People who believe in the literal translation believe humans were put on earth as food for Vampires.

Salome tells Eric that Nora met the True Death.  She wants to know if it was Bill or Eric who killed Nan Flannigan.

Dieter is trying to convince Bill that Eric has betrayed him as they pump more silver in his veins.  Salome is trying to convince Eric that Bill betrayed him and has been reinstated as King.  Eric responds, “Long live the King.”

Jessica is having another party, she hears the door bell and opens it and it is Rev. Steve Newlin.  All the young people at the party are excited to see him, Jessica is not impressed.

Steve tells her he is ready to offer her $10,000 for Jason in cash. She asks for $20,000 and Steve says no. Steve counter offers with $15,000.  Finally Rev. Steve agrees the $20,000. Jessica tells Steve she does not sell her friends out.

He attacks her, she tells him her Dad is the King and he is in trouble.  Rev. Steve responds, “Not Anymore.”

Roman asks Bill and Eric if they have anything to say before they pronounce sentence.  Bill offers them an exchange their life for Russell Edgington.  Roman tells Bill he knows Russell is dead.

Eric tells Roman that Russell has broken free.  Bill tells Roman, Russell wants anarchy.  If they want peace obliterated ignore them.  Roman wants to know why they kept Russell alive.
