Last Sunday’s True Blood was full of surprises when Lafayette joined Lettie Mae in a V-induced search for Tara and Sarah Newlin revealed herself to be the carrier of the Hep-V antidote after she drank the only vile last season.
Given the latest synopses and previews released by HBO, for episodes 7 and 8, it seems that Eric and Pam are going to have a harder time finding Sarah than they thought. Now that they know she’s the cure to Eric’s illness, their quest will only become that much turbulent.
Episode 7 “May Be the Last Time” – Sunday, August 3:
Eric (Alexander Skarsgård), Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) and Mr. Gus (Will Yun Lee) close in on Sarah (Anna Camp) in Dallas. Adilyn (Bailey Noble) and Wade (Noah Matthews) find a temporary haven, and unexpected hospitality. Refusing to accept the inevitable, a desperate Sookie (Anna Paquin) turns to unexpected resources in search of a miracle. Bill (Stephen Moyer) recalls the inexorable forces that led him to his marriage 170 years earlier. A familiar face resurfaces in Bon Temps. Sam (Sam Trammell) faces a quandary.
Episode 8 “Almost Home” – Sunday, August 10:
With his prey in sight, Eric reconsiders his end-game strategies against Sarah. Sookie puts her life at risk in hopes of saving Bill. Lettie Mae (Adina Porter) and Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) urge Reverend Daniels (Gregg Daniel) to join them in their V-fueled search for Tara (Rutina Wesley). Violet (Karolina Wydra) eyes payback against those who betrayed her, while an old love is reborn for others.
HBO also released a trailer, giving fans a preview of what’s to come in the next few episodes of True Blood‘s seventh and final season:
Violet is clearly a woman scorned after finding out that Jason and Jessica slept together. She’s set her sights on Adilyn and Wade – but why? Does she plan to use the two young lovers to exact revenge against Jason and Jessica?
