‘True Blood’ is about to embark on its seventh and final season this weekend on HBO and in preparation, new video clips have been released to entice viewers.
The first is a quick-cut trailer specially created for fans and released exclusively through the show’s Facebook page. Not too much is revealed plot-wise, but you get some interesting visuals and vocal clips. At any rate, as much hell as the town of Bon Temps has been through, it has never seen the likes of the destruction inflicted by the Hepatitis V-infected vampires that have swarmed upon the town. And there’s one flicker of an image that looks as though my favorite character may meet their fate this season:
In addition to that, three actual scenes (albeit brief ones) have been released. The first shows the inhabitants of Bon Temps, human and vampire, plotting out their plans for survival, rallied by Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) and Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer). If you recall last season’s finale, this sequence obviously takes place toward the beginning of the episode, as the last episode ended with the citizens gathered in the bar formerly known as Merlotte’s, now known as Bellefleur’s, which was unbeknownst to those inside was being surrounded by Hep V vamps.
In the second scene, Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) is forced to confront Adilyn (Bailey Noble), Andy Bellefleur’s faerie daughter, but things are tense since… uh, well Jessica ate her sisters. But it looks like this season will explore their relationship further.
Finally, in a third clip, Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), the show’s lead, makes an impassioned plea to the town to let her help them survive the vampire incursion.
Here is the official plot synopsis for the seventh season’s debut episode:
Episode 71: Jesus Gonna Be Here – A band of rogue H-vamps crashes the vampire-human mixer at Bellefleur’s, with shocking results. As Sookie (Anna Paquin) seeks refuge from accusations that she’s somehow to blame for the chaos in Bon Temps, the “one vampire for every human” plan moves forward. In the face of a vigilante insurrection led by redneck Vince (Brett Rickaby), Bill (Stephen Moyer) receives aid from an unexpected source. Written by Angela Robinson; directed by Stephen Moyer.”
Are you ready to say goodbye to Bon Temps? The bloody fun launches on Sunday June 22nd on HBO at 9/8C in the US.
