True Blood will be wrapping up its fifth season this month, and while a promo is out for the last three episodes (below), HBO has now released the episode descriptions for 11, “Sunset,” and 12, “Save Yourself,” the season finale.
Season 5 Episodes 11-12 Official Descriptions
“Slipping further into religious fervor, Bill (Stephen Moyer) gives Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) an order she’s loath to carry out. Armed with a damning video of Russell (Denis O’Hare) and Steve (Michael McMillian), the military delivers an ultimatum to the Authority. Claude (Giles Matthey) and Maurella (Kristina Anapau) take Sookie (Anna Paquin) to meet the faerie elder, who may know something about an ancient family secret. Alcide (Joe Manganiello) reconnects with his father; Sam (Sam Trammell) and Luna (Janina Gavankar) hitch a ride into the Authority.”
Episode 11 of the season is “Sunset,” airing on August 19. The promo does show that Jessica can see that Bill’s losing it, but based on this episode description and the one below, she’s not going to be able to do much about it. Will she do what he tells her to or will she be able to resist? Sam and Luna are going to end up getting right into the middle of what’s going on with the Authority, but considering Steve has Emma as his pet, there’s not much else they can do. The promo also shows Luna locked up at Authority headquarters, but will they at least be able to figure out where Emma’s being kept and how they’ll get to her? Even though the military is going to have an ultimatum for the Authority, that doesn’t sound like it will end up being a fair fight.
“Eric (Alexander SkarsgÃ¥rd) embarks on a final, desperate mission to overthrow the AuthorityÂ—and save Bill from losing his humanity. Andy (Chris Bauer) faces the consequences of a light pact he made; Alcide readies for a second showdown with J.D. (Louis Herthum); Sam and Luna test their limits in trying to escape the Authority.”
“Save Yourself” is the True Blood season 5 finale, airing on August 26. It’s an ominous title for a season finale, especially one for this show and especially since there will once again be blood spilled. Could Sam or Luna sacrifice his or her life in the attempt to save Emma and get out of the Authority’s clutches? Will Eric be able to make Bill see what’s really right before it’s too late? It looks like it’s going to reach that point, and all Eric will be able to hope for is for this to end in a way where it is possible to pick up the pieces and move on. Spoilers have revealed that the season finale will end with a shot of Sookie, Bill, or Eric. Will it be the two vampires facing off? Will it involve Sookie face-to-face with the vampire who killed her parents? After a season of Sookie being separate from those two vampires for the most part, could the season end with a scene featuring Sookie and one of them?
