“With time running short, Bill and Eric enlist Sookie to probe for clues on Russell’s hiding place. Unable to deal with the demon magic inside him, Lafayette calls out to Jesus’ spirit for help. Patrick Devins (Scott Foley) and Terry are held hostage in the bunker of their Iraq War buddy Brian Eller (Brian Geraghty). Jason wakes to a disturbing dream; Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) gives Tara advice on adjusting to vampire life; Sam visits Luna (Janina Gavankar) with bad news.”

The last episode, “We’ll Meet Again,” showed Sookie and Alcide hooking up, while Bill and Eric watched. That could get complicated, but considering their lives are at risk if they don’t find Russell, they have more important things to worry about. This next episode is going to show just that and will also see Lafayette continuing to deal with what he’s going through, not to mention the aftermath of Jason finding out something about his parents’ death.

The True Blood season 5 episode 5 promo for “Let’s Boot and Rally” (below) shows that Bill and Eric will continue the search for Russell, but Salome is going to be giving them a deadline: until dawn. They’re going to be in trouble, especially when you take into account Bill’s “You couldn’t keep your mouth shut and now she’s using Russell against us.” Who is he talking about? This is going to lead to what has to be quite the interesting conversation with Sookie while Alcide stands in the background.

Eller wants to know if “anything” followed Terry and Patrick, and considering how unstable he seems, it doesn’t look like it’s going to be so easy for Patrick to talk him down. Just what is Eller scared of? Will both Terry and Patrick make it back from this road trip to Eller?

After Hadley told Jason that vampires killed his parents, it sounds like he decides to stop letting vampires get away with murder. Speaking of vampires, Hoyt is going to continue to live on the edge, this time offering his blood to Tara, though she apparently refuses.
