tumblr_lng0v4aoIu1qad2ozo1_500True Blood HBO released some new clips from the next episode of True Blood titled, “The Sun”.

WARNING: If you don’t want to know – don’t watch below.

The first clip features Eric, Pam and Nora arguing in Fangtasia in a clip they call, “This Means War”.

This second clip features Sam, Arlene and Lafayette in a clip called, “Secret’s Out”!

What happened to Tara? Looks like Eric is going to have his hands full this season with Nora and Pam’s hatred for each other. It looks like the secret’s out – judging by the way the patrons in Merlotte’s are eying up Sam…

As a fan of the show True Blood I am glad that HBO chose to include the series in their FYC package. However their choosing to list Alexander Skarsgard as “supporting” actor baffles me. Season 4 was a big season for his character Eric Northman and Alex did an amazing job last season. No matter what I know his fans loved his performance last season.
