HBO has released summaries for the upcoming August episodes of True Blood!
And, these are not your garden-variety plot summaries--they are packed with SPOILERS!
For example, (I'll give you a small one) we are going to see Lois Smith again! If you recall, she was Sookie and Jason's irreplaceable 'Gran' who was killed off far too soon in the series' first season. I've long thought that the series would be richer with just a bit more human element to it. Gran was such a steadying force in Sookie and Jason's life. I think that they could have kept the crazy but given us some breathers in the form of Gran. And I simply adore Lois Smith. I'm so glad she's able to be featured in an upcoming season 5 episode of True Blood!
There are more spoilers ahead so proceed with caution (or if you are like me, just dive right in!)
