TWO CLIPS FROM SUNDAY’S SECOND EPISODE OF TRUE BLOOD: ‘AUTHORITY ALWAYS WINS’

While I thought the first episode of the 5th season of HBO’s TRUE BLOOD was a bit…rushed, I realize they had to cram a lot of information into a short amount of time. With any luck, they’ll begin to take their time telling the story starting with the second episode AUTHORITY ALWAYS WINS, airing Sunday, June 17th at 9PM EST. Below are two short clips from the episode to give us a little taste of what we can look forward to.

SYNOPSIS FOR AUTHORITY ALWAYS WINS:

At the Vampire Authority headquarters in New Orleans, Bill and Eric meet Salome (Valentina Cervi) and become acquainted with the Authority’s interrogation techniques. Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) recalls her human life as the madam of the Comstock Brothel in San Francisco, and her first encounter with Eric. Werewolves J.D. (Louis Herthum) and Rikki (Kelly Overton) pay tribute to Marcus, but Alciderefuses to participate or take his rightful place as the new packmaster. Martha Bozeman (Dale Dickey) shows up wanting to see her granddaughter, causing conflict for Sam and Luna (Janina Gavankar). Fearing Russell’s return, Sookie procures a home-protection system; Arlene (Carrie Preston) tries to get to the bottom of Terry’s erratic behavior; Steve Newlin stops by with an offer for Jessica; and Jason feels the brunt of his womanizing ways.
