“At the Vampire Authority headquarters in New Orleans, Bill and Eric meet Salome (Valentina Cervi) and become acquainted with the Authority’s interrogation techniques. Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) recalls her human life as the madam of the Comstock Brothel in San Francisco, and her first encounter with Eric. Werewolves J.D. (Louis Herthum) and Rikki (Kelly Overton) pay tribute to Marcus, but Alcide refuses to participate or take his rightful place as the new packmaster. Martha Bozeman (Dale Dickey) shows up wanting to see her granddaughter, causing conflict for Sam and Luna (Janina Gavankar). Fearing Russell’s return, Sookie procures a home-protection system; Arlene (Carrie Preston) tries to get to the bottom of Terry’s erratic behavior; Steve Newlin stops by with an offer for Jessica; and Jason feels the brunt of his womanizing ways.”

Meanwhile, Bill and Eric were going to be on the run with new identities before the Vampire Authority intervened. Then there’s still whatever’s going on with Terry, what Alcide will be facing with the pack, and Pam’s desire to fix things with Eric.

The True Blood season 5 episode 2 promo for “Authority Always Wins” (below) also offers a look at what’s coming up this summer on the show, not just in next week’s episode. Tara may be back, but due to her behavior, Lafayette wonders if they should’ve left her dead. Sookie insists Tara’s in there somewhere, but is she? Meanwhile, the Vampire Authority is here, and with them comes more from Roman. It also means that Bill’s going to be going through some torture when he says he doesn’t believe in the literal interpretation of their sacred text. Uh-oh. There are going to be a number of confrontations this season—between Pam and Sookie, Steve and Jessica, and more. Alcide stands up for his pack, but he may get that fight he mentions. The promo also offers a different look for Hoyt and shows that they’re going to need to restrain Tara and figure out how to deal with Russell, who, of course, has to be stopped. It’s going to be an exciting summer.
