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 5 episode of HBO’s “True Blood”.

WOW, who does not love True Blood this season?  On last week’s episode Eric and Bill were sure the search for Russell was a suicide mission.  If they don’t find Russell  The Vampire Authority will kill them and if they do Russell may kill them.  They both put their affairs in order – Eric released Pam and Bill tells Jessica she has done him proud (we shed a few tears).  The two continued their search trying to find out who let Russell out of the cement.  Sookie was really upset last week and thinks she has ruined many people’s lives.  To help her feel better she decides to get drunk and when Alcide comes to visit Sookie basically has her way with him.  Meanwhile Bill and Eric just happen to be spying in the window and see the whole thing.  I am really hoping tonight is the night we meet Russell again!

Official HBO synopsis of tonight’s episode ‘Let’s Boot and Rally’: With time running short, Bill and Eric enlist Sookie to probe for clues on Russell’s hiding place. Unable to deal with the demon magic inside him, Lafayette calls out to Jesus’ spirit for help. Patrick Devins (Scott Foley) and Terry are held hostage in a bunker belonging to their Iraq War buddy Brian Eller (Brian Geraghty). Jason wakes to a disturbing dream; Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) gives Tara advice on adjusting to vampire life; Sam visits Luna (Janina Gavankar) with bad news.

It looks like things are getting really serious for our boys Eric and Bill as the hunt for Russell intensifies.  During their hunt for Russell, Molly, a worker at for The Vampire Authority calls them to tell them their countdown has started.  The boys look less than pleased when Molly tells them their iSTAKES are set to activate at dawn.  Bill is confused but Molly tells him she has to do a test to see if the stakes that are ‘good to go.’  Bill realizes they are in trouble.

Meanwhile Jessica tries to convince Tara why it is so great to be a vampire.  She tells Tara they are going to live forever, they are going to be young forever, the world is wide open to them.  Tara looks less than impressed when Jessica starts off her pitch to her, but by the end it looks like she may be a bit happier.  Perhaps Tara will finally accept her vampire-ism

Tonight’s show: Tonight’s show opens as usual with a preview of what happened last week.    We jump right into Sookie and Alcide making out and it is hot!  They head up to the bed where she has previously had sex with Eric and Bill, the girl gets around!

Alcide tells her he has waited so long for it and Sookie throws up from too much booze.  Bill and Eric walk in and say, “Alcide you sure know how to treat a lady!”

Meanwhile Lafayette is not pleased because of his demon crap – Sookie could have died.  He looks in the mirror and sees himself as a demon and tells the demon to F*!k off.  He asks God to make it stop, he looks around and sees all the icons moving he throws them on the ground and jumps on them.

He calls for Jesus to give him a sign if he is out there, because he needs some help.

In the underground hideout of Terry and Patrick’s fellow soldier friend.  He has them tied up and asks if anyone followed them.  Terry is thinking it was not such a good idea to come.

Jason wakes up and is watching TV and he is having a flashback to when he was a child.  He sees his Mom and Dad and Sookie as a child.  He sits down at the breakfast table with them and they start bleeding from vampire wounds.

He wakes up when his phone rings and it is Rosie, he asks her what year it is and tells her he is on his way.

Andy’s phone is ringing and Arlene walks in Andy is lying on her couch asleep and naked.  Arlene asks him to put some clothes on.  Andy picks up the phone and he tells the person on the other line he will be there.

Sookie is sitting on the table with Bill and Eric and they want Sookie to unglamour one of Alcides employees but Alcide is not interested in helping.  The vampires and the werewolf are bickering and Sookie starts laughing.

She says it is not going to end.  A 3,000 year vampire wants to suck her blood, must be Thursday.  She tells the boys lets go and hunt Russell, into the jaws of death, “Boots and Rally.”

Over at Fangtastic Pam tells Tara she looks good and she wants Tara to tend bar.  Tara comments to Pam that she seems to be her slave – Pam agrees – and Tara says, “The more things change, the more things stay the same.”

Tara goes over and starts tending the bar and makes a mistake of biting one of the clients who is flirting with her and Pam slams her into a wall and reminds her she does not feed on the clients in public – the Authority can find out!  Tara gets the point for sure.

Sookie comes to meet Alcide’s employee Doug, she is trying to read his mind.    She sees that it was a women who dug Russell up, she see a necklace on the women and tells Eric and Bill about it.  They recognize the emblem as one the Vampire Authority wear.

Bill asks Eric if he told Nora about Russell and where he was buried, Eric denies it, but Bill is not convinced.

Meanwhile, Nora is still being tortured by the Vampire Authority.  Salome tells one of the workers they are to inform Bill and Eric that they have till dawn to find Russell or they will be terminated.

Salome goes to see Roman and he is upset because although he killed Counselor Drew, he says he was a great man and does not understand how Drew could have lost his way.  Salome tells Roman that the Sanguinista are gaining ground.

Back in the underground Patrick is certain that Eller is the one who is setting fire.  Eller believes the fire is coming for them and it a fire monster trying to make them pay for what they did.  Terry starts having a flashback and Patrick tells him to stay with him.

In the flashback Terry finds one Vietnamese women alive and Patrick tells him they have to ditch her.  Terry tells him they can save her.  The women swears a curse on them and Patrick shoots her.

Jason comes to a crime scene and there is a man – Emory – and women – Susan – who have been shot sitting at a table. (They were the shifters that Sam was going to go running with).

Jason goes over to Andy and he asks if he knows how they got back from the club.  But Andy does not remember, Jason tells Andy the strippers were fairies.  Andy says, “I fu*ked a fairy.”  Andy tells Jason he is going to stay clear of the place because he has a good thing going on with Holly.

Andy comes up to Sam and he asks what happened.  Sam came to go to dinner with his friends Emory and Susan and found them dead.  He tells Andy that the dead people were shifters.

Jessica comes in Fangtastic and asks Tara for a True Blood.  Jessica asks if Tara is okay and Tara asks if she wants to change makers.  Jessica tells Tara her maker is good at least she lets her eat humans, Bill made Jessica drink True Blood forever.  Tara is feeling lonely, but Jessica tells her they can be girlfriends.  The two start to talk.    Tara feels messed up, but Jessica tells her the feelings she is having are not bad, they are awesome.  Jessica cheers her up by telling her she is going to stay young forever and live forever.

Sookie asks Alcide if they are going to talk about her puking on his shoes and he tells her NO.  Bill and Eric are looking for Russell.  Bill is suspicious he thinks Nora betrayed them and set them up.  They guys get a call from Molly who tells them their countdown has started.  Their iSTAKES are set to launch at dawn.

Bill tells Eric they do not have much time.  Bill, Eric, Doug, Sookie and Alcide get to the place Sookie can see in Doug’s head the person who took Russell.

Bill and Eric tells Sookie she can leave now, but she refuses.  She thinks she is minding them, being a fairy and all – they are all macho and say they have no time to care for her…

Jason digs a wooden bullet with a silver core out of the tree.  Jason tells Andy you want to know what is F*?ed up?  Andy asks him what and Jason tells him the Supernaturals have been killing people for years and no on has noticed.

Sookie, Alcide, Eric, Bill and Doug are searching in the old hospital for Russell.  Doug is really afraid, he is not pleased to be there.  Sookie sees images of Russell and the women who took Russell but she is not clear she is in the shadows.

Doug says if he dies he will never have seen NYC.  Eric tells him, “New York City smells like pee and the people are rude.”

They hear rats and they move back a curtain and find a stack of dead bodies so Eric is sure they are in the right place.

Tara is outside smoking and Hoyt walks by.  Tara asks what is with the getup, she tells him she never thought he was Fangbanger and he tells her he never thought of her as a vampire.

He implies she can have him but she says no and Hoyt asks what is wrong with him is his blood not good enough.

The search continues for Russell and they see the doors to the morgue and Bill says how convenient.

Terry is back in his flashback mode and he is seeing them dropping gasoline on the people they shot.  They throw a match and the people start to burn as Terry watches. Terry sees a vision of fire monsters.  In present time he tells Eller he saw it too, he saw the fire monster.  Eller is happy that Terry saw it too.  Terry tells Eller they have to get out – this is what IT has been waiting for.  They are sitting ducks in the cellar.  Eller agrees and undoes their ropes.  As Patrick gets free he hits Eller.  He asks Terry to help tie up Eller but Terry is leaving – he tells Patrick he believes Eller because he saw it too.  Patrick comes out and tells Terry they are going to get Eller help in the morning.

Patrick tells Terry there is no fire monster, they were on drugs that night.  It is just that Eller cannot live with himself.  Meanwhile Eller is still in the cellar and black smoke starts to pour in it is the fire monster and it is killing him!

Lafayette is sleeping and he wakes up and he sees a head with its mouth sewn closed and he screams.

Back in the morgue Doug breaks lose and runs away and ends up in room where people are tied up.  The men beg Bill to let them lose – they leave them to go down the hall where the imprisoned men are taken.

Sam comes to see Luna and tells her that Susan and Emory are dead and have been shot to death.  Sam tells her he is coming to check on her the next day.  Sam walks out of the house and someone calls out ‘shifter’ and shoots him and Luna comes out to see what is happening and she is shot too.  Luna’s little girl comes out and Sam screams ‘run’ and she turns into a wolf and runs.

Roman is telling the members of the Vampire Authority there are traitors.  Roman tells them the choice is theirs – do they want to hide or do they want to extend the promise of Lilith.

Jason is at the graveyard looking at his parents graves.

Jessica is feeding on a human in the bathroom and hears a noise in the next stall and goes and see Tara feeding on Hoyt and goes insane – attacking Tara.  Those crazy vampires!

Bill, Eric, Alcide, Sookie and Doug finally find Russell – he asks them what took them so long.  He also recognizes that Sookie is there.  Eric asks if he remembers him.  He tells Russell he has come to finish what they started.

Russell tells him to take his best shot.  Then suddenly we hear wolves and Sookie turns in shock…

The END!
