‘True Blood’ Final Season Spoilers: First Episode Synopses Reveal Vigilantes and H-Vamp Frenzies
The final season of HBO’s ‘True Blood‘ will be here before we know it, particularly with the full trailer and poster bleeding all over the place, but why wait until June 22? Take a look at the latest Bon Temps craziness with fresh new episode descriptions for the first few hours of ‘True Blood’ season 7!
As tends to be the case with ‘True Blood,’ June 22 premiere “Jesus Gonna Be Here” picks up exactly where season 6 finale “Radioactive” left off, with an army of H-vamps descending on the hapless residents of Bon Temps and their new noble vampire protectors. Meanwhile, the subsequent weeks pick up with some brand-new troubles for Sookie and some vigilante troubles for Bill.
See for yourself:
Episode #71: “Jesus Gonna Be Here”
Debut: SUNDAY, JUNE 22 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT)
A band of rogue H-vamps crashes the vampire-human mixer at Bellefleur’s, with shocking results. As Sookie (Anna Paquin) seeks refuge from accusations that she’s somehow to blame for the chaos in Bon Temps, the “one vampire for every human” plan moves forward. In the face of a vigilante insurrection led by redneck Vince (Brett Rickaby), Bill (Stephen Moyer) receives aid from an unexpected source.
Episode #72: “I Found You”
Debut: SUNDAY, JUNE 29 (9:00-10:00 p.m.)
A trio of hostages taken in the Bellefleur’s attack looks to a familiar face as a possible liberator from the H-vamps. Sookie and Jason (Ryan Kwanten) visit the neighboring town of Saint Alice, where a young woman’s diary offers clues to the potential fate of Bon Temps. Spurned by Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis), a desperate Lettie Mae (Adina Porter) turns to Willa (Amelia Rose Blaire) to channel her family past. Vince whips his fellow vigilantes into a dangerous frenzy. Pam’s (Kristin Bauer van Straten) search for her maker leads her to a very familiar place.
We know of ‘True Blood’ season 7 that Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) will indeed return, despite a seemingly fiery end teased in the season 6 finale. Anna Camp’s Sarah Newlin will return, likely battling a new Japanese cowboy villain played by ‘The Wolverine’ co-star Will Yun Lee, and joining ’90210′ alum Riley Smith and Nathan Parson, the latter replacing Luke Grimes in the role of James. Storytelling will shrink to see more direct human-vampire relationships in light of the Hepatitis V threat, while more details and series regular ascensions have been outlined in our guide to ‘True Blood”s final season.
Well, what say you? Will ‘True Blood’ season 7 prove as tasty, down to the last bloody morsel? What do you hope to see from the final year in Bon Temps? Watch the trailer again above, and give us your predictions in the comments!
