SPOILERS: Episode Descriptions for True Blood 7.03-7.05

By  |  13 Comments

Well that was down to the wire! HBO waited until the last minute to release the synopses for July’s True Blood episodes, probably because they reveal more about Eric’s storyline. Let’s see what we can glean!

Episode 7.03: “Fire in the Hole”
Debut: SUNDAY, JULY 6 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT)

Sookie (Anna Paquin) hatches a dangerous plan to take down the H-Vamps, even as Vince (Brett Rickaby) and his armed vigilantes pose an equally serious threat. Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) gets high with James (Nathan Parsons); Jason (Ryan Kwanten) eyes a family future with Violet (Karolina Wydra); Willa (Amelia Rose Blaire) is forced to find a new place to stay; Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) sheds her past. Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) offers Eric (Alexander Skarsgård) a compelling reason to return to Louisiana – and be the vampire he used to be.
Written by Brian Buckner; directed by Lee Rose.

Episode 7.04: “Death Is Not the End”
Debut: SUNDAY, JULY 13 (9:00-10:00 p.m.)

In the aftermath of yet another bloodbath, Sam (Sam Trammell), Sookie and Jason find themselves the bearers of bad news in Bon Temps and beyond. Pam recalls the events that led her and Eric to Shreveport and Fangtasia. Bill (Stephen Moyer) and Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) get nourishment from unexpected sources. Following a new lead, Sookie enlists a band of vampires and humans to track down the H-Vamps.
Written by Daniel Kenneth; directed by Gregg Fienberg.

Episode 7.05: “Lost Cause”
Debut: SUNDAY, JULY 20 (9:00-10:00 p.m.)

Exhausted from her recent travails, Sookie finds herself the unwilling host of a festive mainstreaming party in Bon Temps. In search of an elusive adversary, Eric and Pam head to Dallas and attend a gala fundraiser. Andy (Chris Bauer) makes a life-changing decision; Jessica and James reach a crossroads; Bill loses himself in remembrance of human days.
Written by Craig Chester; directed by Howie Deutch.

Did you catch that in 7.04 we’ll get an Eric/Pam flashback? Yay! Bill has another flashback in 7.05, and it sounds like he may need a reminder to live in the present, a la Harry Potter and Dumbledore. Meanwhile, prepare yourselves for a bloodbath next week in episode 7.03. (Those worried about Sam after that shot in the preview for 7.03: note that he’s in the description for 7.04.)

And that takes us up to the week of Comic Con when we expect to see most of the main cast on stage for the last time.

Buckle up, Truebies!

    I have asked several people and NO ONE seems to know the answer?

    Question: assuming hep-v vamps need an invitation before entering a human’s house, how are the committing mass murder? From the looks of it they aren’t sabotaging food, water, or air supply. They aren’t burning houses down. Why wouldn’t people be safe in their homes until sun up?

      There were a few references to making sure humans were inside before nightfall, plus that crazy vampire who wanted Adilyn in the season premiere couldn’t enter the house without an invitation, so they can’t go inside without an invitation. They attacked the folks of Bon Temps when they were outdoors, an ambush. Mary Beth’s diary referred to ambushes in St. Alice as well. So somehow they’re luring people outside at night, then attacking.

      This is really a very good question and we do not have the answer yet …it seems not realistic that they would have been glamoured massively like that. What if they thought that the government was coming to evacuate them all … and the gards where in fact infected HV vamps who attacked a real convoy sent for help ? That would have done the trick in my opinion.

      People have to leave there house eventually and they can compel people to go out side and they can throw stuff like gas inside houses to drive everyone out.There are a lot of ways to kill someone and we only saw a little bit of the town, they may have been burning houses down.

    So there is no news yet about Tara’s fate does this mean she’s really gone now? She left the show for good? 🙁

      Tara is dead, but we will continue to see her in hallucinations and flashbacks.

      I stil hope that Tara and Ginger are going to save the ladies in Fangtasia’s basement next week !There must be a secret exit, remember fisrt season when Eric had to take off after a police intervention …he said “follow me” and they all emerged from a kind of industrial hangar middle of nowhere.

        Tara is dead, so I don’t think she’ll be saving anyone, but it would be cool for Ginger to have a hand in their rescue!

    Death is not the end…Carcosa, anyone?
    I think Tara is just Lettie Mae’s hallucinations, but Ill take what I can get, I love Tara. I also like the idea of Lettie Mae being an addict, whether its vodka, the bible, or V. As frustrating as addicts can be, I find Lettie Mae fascinating. One of my fave TB scenes was when Maryann read LM outside the jail, the “all the blame or the credit, either Jesus or gin” speech. Love that. I do miss the old TB seasons, they were filled with gems like that.

    Now what would be in your opinion a compelling reason for Eric to come back ?? Wich means it also is for Pam … any clue guys ??? Finding the cure is Sookie and only Eric can convince her ?
    His second daughter Willa, his grand daugther Tara … Fangtasia being invaded …is Bill still able to summon him as his King ?? Maybee the answer lies in their common past and we don’t have the answer yet …they say that history repeats itself !

      I know what the compelling reason is, and no one’s guessed it yet. It’s a good one, though. 😀

    Hmm….what pulls at Erics heartstrings? Godric can convince Eric to do anything. Another vision, maybe? Eric hasnt released Willa, so maybe she is in trouble and thats drawing him back.

      As much as it erks me to say this….I think maybe Pam will play the “Sookie” card. It seems his only weakness left. I sure hope him nor Pam die =( I hope the end up back with each other..happy and in a New and better Fangtasia away from Louisiana.
