HBO just sent out the official descriptions for the first three episodes of True Blood season 6, premiering June 16. Let the speculation begin!

Episode 6.01: “Who Are You, Really?”
Debut: SUNDAY, JUNE 16 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT)

In the wake of Bill’s (Stephen Moyer) blood-soaked reincarnation, Sookie (Anna Paquin), Eric (Alexander Skarsgård), Jason (Ryan Kwanten), Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll), Tara (Rutina Wesley), Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) and Nora (Lucy Griffiths) flee the Authority compound as Sam (Sam Trammell), Luna (Janina Gavankar) and Emma (Chloe Noelle) dodge swarming guards. Now packmaster, Alcide (Joe Manganiello) discovers that the job comes with unsavory side dishes, but other major perks. In Bon Temps, Andy (Chris Bauer) deals with parenting four newborn human-faerie hybrids. Meanwhile, Louisiana Governor Truman Burrell (Arliss Howard) vows open season on vampires. Jessica returns to Compton Place as Jason hitches a ride with an eerie stranger. Written by Raelle Tucker; directed by Stephen Moyer.

Episode 6.02: “The Sun”
Debut: SUNDAY, JUNE 23 (9:00-10:00 p.m.)

A long-lost relative reveals himself to Jason and Sookie. After Tara is victimized by a new government weapon, Eric takes matters into his own hands in an effort to thwart Burrell’s anti-vampire initiatives. On the road to work, Sookie is drawn to a handsome stranger who shares her faerie abilities. Sam is unnerved by supernatural-rights zealot Nicole (Jurnee Smollett-Bell), and is confronted by Alcide and Martha (Dale Dickey) about Emma’s future. Bill contemplates the scope of his heightened powers. Written by Angela Robinson; directed by Dan Attias.

Episode 6.03: “You’re No Good”
Debut: SUNDAY, JUNE 30 (9:00-10:00 p.m.)

Irate over Burrell’s blatant aggression towards vampires, Eric takes matters into his own hands. After dangerously testing the limits of his powers, Bill enlists a TruBlood innovator to synthesize a new type of blood – but has difficulty finding the right donor. Sookie begins to learn why Warlow is after her. Sam receives unexpected help from Nicole and her Vampire Unity Society (V.U.S.) associates. Steve Newlin (Michael McMillian) finds his past ideals turning into a current nightmare. Written by Mark Hudis; directed by Howard Deutch.

    Hm. And once again a decided lack of Pam and Tara! I honestly feel like last season, they only had about fifteen minutes total screen time together and I’d hoped, that since Tara has always been an integral character of the show, that this trend would not continue once she had been turned and once the sixth season began. I am hoping I am wrong and that they just haven’t decided to add Pam and Tara to each synopsis…

    18 Days! For Australians, anyway, I think!

    🙁 Unfortunately I think that Luna gets killed. Why else would Alcide & Martha confront Sam about Emma’s future? If Luna were still alive, they would address her directly. Plus in the trailer, it shows Martha holding Emma & Alcide saying “She’s wolf – she stays.” Bummed – I really liked Luna! Maybe now Sookie & Sam can hook up sooner rather than later.

    I wonder if Bill is trying to get the trublood innovator to synthesize fairy blood in order to allow vampires to take back the day, which incidentally was Russel’s idea to begin with, but Salome shot him down.
