Here is the “inside the episode” video for In the Beginning episode 5.07:
The upcoming episode will pick up right where we left off in 5.06 “Hopeless”. The promos have teased what will happen. The episode description below gives another “taste” for fans to expect more action and just hope that it will all start to make sense!
SUNDAY, JULY 22nd “In The Beginning”
(Written by Brian Buckner; directed by Michael Ruscio.)
Bill and Eric get a powerful taste of sacred blood.
A revelation at Hot Wings causes Sookie to wonder what her life would be like without faerie powers and Sookie embraces her human side.
Hoyt finds camaraderie in a new group of friends;
Alcide prepares for the worst in his face-off with J.D.; Andy attempts to reconnect with Bud; Lafayette finds an unlikely ally searching for Jesus’ body in Mexico;
Lettie Mae (Adina Porter) pays Tara a visit; Arlene takes a sentimental journey as her concerns for Terry deepen.
The casting call for this episode also hints that we will finally meet a certain “Lil”. Although she has no lines in this episode it sounds like she will make a big ‘splash’ on the show. This might very well be the “Lillith” that the Authority has been mentioning and Nora has been praying to on the show.

The screen caps for this episode will be on this page on the site: True Blood episode 5.07 screen cap images
A few questions I have are how will they explain Sookie being half fairy? Another interesting screen cap shows Russell with the weres below. As Alcide said “it’s Jackson all over again”.
So the humans will have to contend with Russell and weres.
Also- why is Jason holding a gun on Jessica below? (is it Jessica?)
The screen cap below shows Eric Northman also wondering what will happen. (not really just think he found something out that has him puzzled perhaps)
Not sure if we will see the return of a certain maker who met the sun seasons ago in the next episode (Or the one after) I can’t wait to see him back. Pretty sure he will be there to help Eric regain control over a bad situation. So what do you think will happen in the upcoming episode? What surprises do you think the writers have in store for us?
