Thanks to Rhoswen7, we have the short descriptions for the True Blood episodes airing in July. HBO will likely release more detailed descriptions within the next week or two, but for now, let’s see what we can extrapolate.

Episode #52 (5.04): “We’ll Meet Again”: Eric and Bill fear for their lives; Lafayette puts Sookie’s life in danger; Roman and Salome root out a Council traitor. (Written by Alexander Woo; directed by Romeo Tirone.)
Playdates: July 1, 4, 5 and 7

Episode #53 (5.05): “Let’s Boot and Rally”: Bill and Eric turn to Sookie for help with Russell’s whereabouts; Jason has a disturbing dream. (Written by Angela Robinson; directed by Michael Lehmann.)
Playdates: July 8, 11, 12 and 14

Episode #54 (5.06): “Hopeless”: Bill and Eric are retrieved by the Authority; Roman lays out his plans for Russell. (Written by Alan Ball; directed by Dan Attias.)
Playdates: July 15, 18, 19 and 21

Episode #55 (5.07): “In the Beginning”: Salome reveals her true allegiances; Sookie embraces her human side; Sam sniffs out some perps; Alcide braces for a fight. (Written by Brian Buckner; directed by Michael Ruscio.)

The Authority continues to loom large, and Sookie’s special skills are needed in the campaign against Russell. But check out that description for episode 5.08 – are we going to flashback to when Sookie and Jason’s parents died?

    True Blood already hinted to the death circumstances of Sookie’s folks, and the Charlaine Harris books offer the answer – how they died – and the underworld that took ’em.

    I think that the parent’s deaths are going to open up the storyline for Claude and didn’t I hear we were going to see Claudette? Sounds like fun to me. (Probably the only book related storyline since Debbie Pelt gets shot at the end of season 4. LOL

    I think Sookie embracing her “human side” means she may be pregnant.

      No, she’s not pregnant. I believe that’s the episode when she “embraces” Alcide.
