    I was ready to tune out until Lucy Griffiths got cast. Love her. Is that her making out with Eric? I can’t quite tell. It’s def. her standing with Bill and Eric at :25

    • I don’t think it’s Lucy’s character Nora that’s kissing Eric…my guess is that it’s Salome played by Valentina Cervi. The facial features match Valentina’s better than Lucy’s. Can’t wait to find out!!

  2. Marisa G says:

    Oh my god I HOPE Tara’s dead!

  3. Mary says:

    So Tara is turned.. and Pam is sitting in Sookie´s kitchen, why? i think she´s gonna do it.
    Eric is kissing either Nora, don´t buy it.. or Salome, more like.. it in front of an explosion!?!? what is going on?.. AND he´s shirtless coming out a container and Bill is waiting for him? Who is Alcide fighting with? Terry is NOT looking good..
    Russel is brought room service..YYYAAAAYYYY
    And poor Jason..i don´t think Jessica will get him out of this pickle..

    • Squander says:

      I can’t remember where Jessica was when Jason was answering the knock on the door but wouldn’t she be more than able to beat the crap out of reverend whatshisname if she sensed Jason was in danger?

      • TBFanNY12901 says:

        Jessica just left after they slept together, when Jason thought that it was her returning to his house, when he opened the door to find that reverend turned vampire standing there

  4. Sarah says:

    I hope that is Nora that Eric is kissing, if he can’t be with Sookie then I think it would be nice to see them together!

  5. Patrick maloney says:

    Bring it on!

  6. christina says:

    Omg I’m so ready for TB5 please Tara don’t b dead ur undead come back as ur human self pretty please!!!!!!!

  7. TB fan says:

    I had to rewatch this like 20 times or more to get a good look at everything but my first reaction was WTH is Eric kissing?! lol It looks pretty good though from this teaser. Is it June yet? 2 freakin months left of not knowing if Tara is dead or possible Vampire or who Eric is really kissing UGH. And who is that Narrating the promo?

  8. spotteddog says:

    Yeah, now I remember why I keep HBO…

  9. llws says:

    HELLO!! can it be June already!!! AHHHHHH

  10. Tara willbe turned into a vampire, she hates them and now she will be one and thats where her story will go this season on learning on how to be a vampire and how to love them and ally with them.

    • Alice says:

      Or it is just another reason for Tara to be pissed off and surly. Talk about zero character development. “Poor me, I hate this place. These people suck” has pretty much been her anthem from day 1. I rewatched the pilot, and I just don’t get what is appealing about her at all. Everyone else has grown in some way. Tara is still angry ALL the time.

  11. Helen says:

    um why was sookie sitting in the shower? who were they burrying in the yard? and what got blown up?

    • seras says:

      she killed debbie, alicide’s ex at the end of last season. my guess is she’s burying debbie and pulling a lady macbeth in the shower.

      • I wonder if she’s burying Tara and Pam together (for three days)…because putting Debbie in her front yard would be pretty damn stupid. Even for Sookie.

        My guess is that it’s Laf helping her bury Tara (and Pam) and Debbie is still in the house.

  12. Belinda says:

    Having watched it a couple of times, I can guess at a few things –

    * it looks like Pam has been crying (over her broken bond with Eric?)
    * it’s a car that gets blown up in the end
    * Scott Foleys character is beating the living crap out of Terry
    * Sam looks like he’s constantly fighting
    * Alcide doesn’t look too happy with a shorter, bald black man. I’m guessing it’s a pissing contest over the Bon Temps territory
    * Sookie is covered in blood when she’s burying someone in the backyard. My guess is Tara and that’s why she’s crying in the shower
    * Lafayette looks sad and surprised to see someone. Ghost Tara?
    * no idea why Eric is shirtless but I’m not complaining

    • Alice says:

      Don’t forget she also has to bury Debbie Pelt. And clean the blood out of her kitchen. Again.

      • Josh says:

        My guess is they showed her digging to get people to believe it’s Tara, but Debbie seems more likely. She’s not going to bury Tara in the backyard unless she’s burying her with a vampire, if she is being turned.

  13. Spela says:

    Sookie is burying Debbie. But with whom?!? And Eric is kissing Sookie or at least he should! :P

    • Erin Remen says:

      my thoughts exactly!!! Eric and Sookie!!!

    • Gna7019 says:

      According to the books, Eric helps Sookie out with Debbie because he holds that over her in theme in a couple books until she tells the Pelts the truth when they try to kidnap Sookie and Quinn after the Queen’s and King’s wedding and her cousin Hadley’s true death.

      I hope it’s Eric and Sookie kissing but doubt it since Alcide and Sookie are supposed to be in the romantic limelight this season.

      But I could be wrong.

      • Alice says:

        Look at those clothes on the person helping her bury the bodies. Maybe amnesiac Eric would dress like that to bury someone. But our Eric would never wear those pants. I’m guessing Lafayette.

      • steph says:

        Gna7019 what do you mean Alcide and Sookie are supposed to be in the romantic limelight? Is that confirmed somewhere and if so can you cite it? thx

  14. Sabrina says:

    looks like eric is kissing nora freeze on the scene and look at the nose!!!!! not happy ;-(

  15. Morgan says:

    Okay, this is awesome! And I’m assuming the guy with Jessica is Claude, right? I hope they do him justice, he’s one of my favorites in the books! Now I’m curious if we’ll see Quinn and Sookie’s witchy-roommate… Forgot her name… Guesses?

    • Gna7019 says:

      Amelia is witchy roommate with cat Bob, who was a witch too but she accidentally turned him.

    • steph says:

      Amelia. And from what I’ve read online, it looks like they’re bringing in a lot of new vamps and I haven’t heard anything about the said book characters being cast this season… I checked it out good because I was hoping Christopher Meloni would be Quinn :(

  16. Ashley says:

    Haven’t been keeping up with TV tv show spoilers but I have read all the books, and I can’t remember who Nora is. what am i missing?

    • Alice says:

      They’ve departed a good deal from the books (ie, Eric regained ALL his memories at once, did not require 2-3 books of waiting to remember what he did while cursed) so I assume they are changing his “family”- since it doesn’t look like he’s going to be siblings with Alexei Romanov. Nora is now his vampire “sister.”

  17. Danielle H says:

    Wanted to see Chris Meloni :) Looks like TB might be going back to it’s roots.. I can only hope because last season was such a let down .

  18. The name of the episode is, apparently, Turn! Turn! Turn!
    In light of that, I’m thinking the other posters are right and Pam (or another vampire) turns Tara.

  19. Gerald says:

    It looks like Preacher guy is now a vampire and he is coming for Jason. That looks like it might be an interesting story this year also.

  20. mary says:

    Tara hates Bill, so I think he is the one turning her

    • steph says:

      …where’s the logic in that?

      • Josh says:

        Because that would be dramatic and force a relationship between the two. Seems pretty logically(in dramatic writing terms) to me.

    • TBFanNY12901 says:

      Tara hates Eric NOT Bill, and if anyone turns Tara, it will probably be Pam. To make up to Eric for almost killing Sookie, and not to mention Pam HATED Tara and wanted to kill her, so I find that might be the probable outcome

  21. Lucy says:

    Well, since the first episode is called ‘Turn, turn turn’ I wonder what will happen to Tara :P

  22. c0untf0sc0 says:

    is that Christopher Meloni providing the voiceover?

  23. Olivia says:

    Eric is probs kissing the other vamp that Godric made… :|

  24. Ne ne says:

    This some bull . I’m so ready

  25. Melinda says:

    If Tara is really dead, I’m out!
