‘True Blood’ Season 5 Premiere ‘Turn! Turn! Turn!’ Sneak Peeks: Secrets and Lies

True Blood season 5 premieres on June 10 with “Turn! Turn! Turn!” and it will be showing what happens right after those cliffhangers from the season 4 finale. What do the latest previews out reveal?

Season 5 Episode 1 “Turn! Turn! Turn!” Clips

“Sookie (Anna Paquin) and Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) struggle with the aftermath of Tara’s (Rutina Wesley) shooting, while also cleaning up after Debbie Pelt. Meanwhile, Bill (Stephen Moyer) and Eric (Alexander SkarsgÃ¥rd), cleaning up a mess of their own, are visited by the Vampire Authority, one of whom is Nora (Lucy Griffiths), a woman from Eric’s past. In search of the missing Marcus, Alcide’s (Joe Manganiello) werewolf pack comes after Sam (Sam Trammell). With Bill away, Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) enjoys her new freedom by partying with local college kids; Jason (Ryan Kwanten) is visited by the recently turned Rev. Steve Newlin (Michael McMillian); Terry’s (Todd Lowe) PTSD is reignited by Patrick Devins (Scott Foley), an old Iraq War buddy; and Alcide turns up at Sookie’s to warn her about the recently resurfaced Russell Edgington (Denis O’Hare).”

True Blood 2008 logoJust going by that episode synopsis, there’s a lot coming up in the True Blood season 5 premiere for everyone, as it’s not going to be so simple to just move on from what has happened. Everyone’s going to have something to deal with in that first episode of the new season, and the clips that have been released only tease what’s coming up.

The first “Turn! Turn! Turn!” sneak peek (below) shows Bill telling some lies on the phone as Eric takes care of cleaning up their murders from the season 4 finale. It’s a bloody mess, and he doesn’t exactly appreciate doing it himself, as the clip ends with him telling Bill to wrap it up and help out. Whether you like seeing Sookie with Bill or with Eric, that’s something that’s going to be put aside, at least in the beginning of the season, to showcase the Bill-Eric bromance. This is a short clip, but scenes like this one are certainly ones to look forward to.

In the second season 5 episode 1 sneak peek (below), Alcide has clued Sookie in on what’s going on with Russell, and he warns her that Russell will be coming after her. He wants her to stay with him, but she explains she can’t—and he won’t want her to once she explains why. He says he can handle whatever it is, but how will he react when he finds out that she killed Debbie? Will that change his mind, or will he still tell her to stay with him for her protection? Promos have shown that things will heat up between them this season, so even if he needs time to digest what she did, it doesn’t look like it would last for long.

The third clip (below) shows more of Patrick, Terry’s army buddy. He’s having dinner with him, Arlene, and the kids, and when he learns of the fire, that seems to trigger something in him. He eventually says it’s nothing and just not to take fires lately, but there’s obviously more to him than meets the eye. What’s his story? How long will it be before they reveal that?

What do you think of the True Blood season 5 premiere sneak peeks from “Turn! Turn! Turn!”?
