True Blood is gearing up to have quite an exciting August with episodes 9, "Everybody Wants to Rule the World," and 10, "Gone, Gone, Gone." HBO issued a press release Monday with the episode descriptions for those two.
Season 5 Episodes 9 and 10 Official Descriptions
"As the Authority proceeds with Lilith's plan, Eric (Alexander SkarsgÃ¥rd) plots his escape. Gran (Lois Smith) directs Sookie (Anna Paquin) to a clue to her parents' murderer. Andy (Chris Bauer) and Jason (Ryan Kwanten) search for leads to the identities of the people behind the shifter killings. Alcide (Joe Manganiello) recalls his pack induction; Arlene (Carrie Preston) gets caught in Terry (Todd Lowe) and Patrick's (Scott Foley) crossfire; Steve (Michael McMillian) gets a new pet."
On August 5, "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" will air, and it's going to be an action-packed episode. Lilith is still very much a problem, and Eric seems to be the only one against what she has planned. Will he be able to stop it? Then there's Sookie, who will still be looking into her parents' deaths and the vampire responsible. It was her blood that lured the killer in and even though she's not at fault, that doesn't mean it's not affecting her. But will she narrow in on the vampire who killed her parents in this episode? With everyone else busy with their own problems, it seems like she's on her ownÂ—and with her powers static-y, she could be facing trouble.
Jason will be doing his own investigating in this episode as the search for those responsible for killing the supernatural creatures will continue. Will he and Andy take them down soon before someone they know ends up dead? Finally, there's also whatever's going on with Arlene, Terry, and Patrick to note. The preview for "Somebody That I Used to Know" shows that they'll be holding a sÃ©ance, but will that storyline have a tragic ending? Since the episode synopsis does describe her as getting caught in their crossfire, it is possible that she could end up in the middle where she doesn't want to beÂ—and possibly injured or even dead because of it.
"With vampire-on-human attacks increasing, the Authority attempts to woo public favor. Meanwhile, Nora (Lucy Griffiths) tries to convert Eric to Lilith's gospel. Jason finds a mysterious scroll; Elijah (Keram Malicki-Sanchez), the new vampire sheriff of Area 5, pushes Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) and Tara (Rutina Wesley) to obey a new mandate; Sam (Sam Trammell) and Luna (Janina Gavankar) search for Emma (Chloe Noelle); Russell (Denis O'Hare) seeks a higher calling."
"Gone, Gone, Gone" will air on August 12, and things are going to get much worse. Will Eric be able to keep resisting Nora's attempts to get him on her side? What will this "mysterious scroll" Jason finds be connected to? Will it have anything to do with Sookie and her abilities? Russell is still around, and you have to worry about what this "higher calling" he's looking for means for everyone around him. Then there's the fact that Sam and Luna will be looking for Emma. They left her in her grandmother's care, but it looks like they may regret doing that, even though it was the safest place for her at the time.
