Bon Temps is about to get crazy … confusing.
When season four of “True Blood” ended last September, Sookie was cradling an injured Tara, Bill and Eric slaughtered a crew of vampires, Jason was met by a newly resurrected Reverend Steve Newlin and that’s not even the half of it.
With more than a dozen storylines, if you go into season 5 unprepared, you’re going to get lost fast. (We know because we’ve already seen the first episode).
As an aid, we’ve created a cheat sheet to catch you up to speed before the big premiere Sunday night at 9 p.m.
There’s a new guy in town who’s friends with Terry.
Scott Foley (“Grey’s Anatomy”) joins the cast as Patrick, a sargeant who served with Terry in Iraq.
Patrick claims he’s passing through Bon Temps, but no one just “passes through” without some sort of agenda.
Foley told TV Line he’s just a normal guy trying to settle a score.
” … I’m just a guy! I’m not a vampire or a werewolf, I’m not a werepanther, I’m not a fairy; I’m not a shapeshifter. I’m just a guy coming into town trying to finish up something he started back in Iraq,” Foley said.
Arlene is haunted by the ghost of her ex, Renee.
His vision tells Arlene to keep far away from Terry, and the man who just showed up from his past.
This seems slightly bizarre considering Terry has been the center of all things good in her life up until this point. Do we see a huge character change coming?
Andy Bellefleur eyes up Sookie’s cousin, Holly.
Now that he’s not drugged up on V anymore (vampire blood), the sheriff of Bon Temps is setting his sights on a potential love interest.
