After plowing through the four new TRUE BLOOD videos released today and reading the Kristen spoilers (below) I'll add just a couple more thoughts (the others are in my previous TRUE BLOOD post).
I can now see why they are splitting the Pam origin story into two episodes . It gets rather...complicated.
I am really curious to know if it is an Authority member that Chris Meloni's 'Roman' goes all stake-y on (see above).
Is it me or is TRUE BLOOD dumbing things down this year? Jason's (Ryan Kwanten) sex addiction has been crystal clear to us practically since we met him five seasons ago. Even so, in just the first two season 5 episodes, we've had him ponder at length (at least in Jason-speak) about changing his ways after declining to take a girl home from Jessica's party and had him taunted by a table of guys including ex-BFF Hoyt as a 'girlfriend-fucker.' Then we got the pointless scene at the Bon Temps police station where a teenager comes in and punches him, declaring Jason has 'ruined' the kid's life by bedding his skanky mother. And, just for good measure, Jason congratulates Andy on his one-nighter with waitress Holly (for 'getting a piece of pie without buying the cow') even though Andy is concerned that he did something wrong to turn her off. Now, via the Kristen spoiler we find that in episode #51 we are going to find out why Jason is a sex addict, despite the perfectly good explanation offered that his bit of faery blood makes him irresistible to the ladies. Do the writers of True Blood actually watch the show? No explanation necessary! (Please, please, please make it short and...short.)

Take a look at a recap of episode #50 of "True Blood."
KRISTEN SPOILERS #51:
The New 'Nan':
Steve Newlin (Michael McMillian) isn't just showing up in Bon Temps to make himself an unwanted party crasher, he'll have a whole new role at the Authority. He's the best person to take over the old face of the Vampire Authority now that he's a vampire and a smooth-talking religious nut spokesperson. No Biting the Merchandise: As you will soon learn Lorena (Mariana Klaveno), Bill, Eric (Alexander Skarsgård) and Pam have a very long, sordid and interesting history. Bill and Lorena were out sowing their wild oats when he and Eric clashed before. This fun flashback also explains why Pam isn't the biggest Bill Compton fan.
Sex Ed Teacher: We find out that Jason's (Ryan Kwanten) former teacher (Melinda Page Hamilton) is the woman who sent Jason down a sordid sexual path. The gist of this big reveal is that Jason has so much baggage he'd need a whole cargo truck to go on vacation.
