Episode 201: June 14: “Nothing But the Blood”

A shocking murder outside Merlotte’s has Bon Temps reeling.

Meanwhile, Sookie’s (Anna Paquin) relationship with Bill
(Stephen Moyer) is tested when she learns about Jessica
(Deborah Ann Woll), and of his involvement in her uncle’s
death. Sam (Sam Trammell) recalls a shape-shifting encounter he had with
Maryann (Michelle Forbes) as a 17-year-old. Jason (Ryan Kwanten) gets a
sudden windfall that allows him to pay for a leadership retreat with the
Fellowship of the Sun. Two adversaries find themselves sharing a mysterious
dungeon and, possibly, the same fate.

Episode 202: June 21: “Keep This Party Going”

Sookie is forced to cope with Bill’s obligations to Jessica, as well as the

romantic inconveniences the teen vampire’s presence creates. At the Light of
Day leadership conference, Jason makes a favorable impression on its
ambitious leaders, Steve (Michael McMillian) and Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp),
though not on his jealous roommate Luke (Wes Brown). Maryann casts her
spell on Merlotte’s patrons, and Sam proves helpless to stop the revelry.

Episode 203: June 28: “Scratches”

When Sookie is attacked by a mysterious creature, Bill must enlist Eric’s

(Alexander Skarsgård) help to save her. At the Light of Day retreat, Jason has
second thoughts about the sect’s anti-vampire agenda, but Sarah and Steve
counter his doubts with flattery and promises. After snapping at Tara (Rutina
Wesley) and new employee Daphne (Ashley Jones), Sam decides to cut and
run. A bored Jessica heads over to Merlotte’s, where a smitten Hoyt (Jim
Parrack) falls under her spell. At another Maryann-hosted party, Tara finds her
attraction to Eggs (Mehcad Brooks) interrupted by a swirling, aphrodisiac fog.

Episode 204: “Shake and Fingerpop”

Debut: SUNDAY, JULY 12 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT)

With Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) in tow, Bill (Stephen Moyer) and Sookie
(Anna Paquin) head to Dallas to carry out Eric’s (Alexander Skarsgård)
vampire-reconnaissance mission – but a surprise awaits them at the airport. At
the Light of Day Institute, Jason (Ryan Kwanten) falls victim to a practical
joke, but has the last laugh when the Newlins anoint him for a higher calling.
Maryann (Michelle Forbes) throws Tara (Rutina Wesley) a birthday party at
Sookie’s, attracting much of Bon Temps to its Bacchanalian revelry. Sam (Sam
Trammell) postpones his departure from town to attend the bash, connecting
with Daphne (Ashley Jones) in the process. Having barely escaped Fangtasia,
Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) finds himself reluctantly pulled back into Eric’s orbit.

Debut: SUNDAY, JULY 19 (9:00-10:00 p.m.)

In Dallas, Sookie connects with one of her own, then joins Bill and Eric for a
strategic summit at the lair of the missing vampire, Godric (Allan Hyde),
attended by his lieutenants, Stan (Ed Quinn) and Isabel (Valerie Cruz).
Meanwhile, Jason shows his mettle at a Light of Day boot camp, and is
rewarded for his hard work with a gift from Sarah (Anna Camp). Rebuffed by
Tara in her relocation efforts, Maryann decides to cast her spell on the staff of
Merlotte’s, softening Tara up towards her new “family.” Eric shares a little-
known secret about his past with Bill, and Sookie makes a decision that might
solve the Godric mystery – or get her killed.

Written by Nancy Oliver; directed by John Dahl.

Temps, Daphne presses Sam to get comfortable in his own skin(s); Hoyt (Jim
Parrack) continues his unlikely courtship of Jessica; Andy (Chris Bauer)
interrogates Lafayette about his disappearance; and Tara and Eggs (Mehcad
Brooks) take a detour while on a road trip. At the Light of Day camp, Jason
