PREVIEW: TRUE BLOOD SEASON 5 EPISODE 5.06 ‘HOPELESS’

Yesterday’s episode of HBO’s TRUE BLOOD was the best yet this season. And while I still believe there are a few subplots that could be completely done away with (the Iraq flashback/fire demon story for example), this season is really starting to pick up. Below you’ll find a preview for next Sunday’s episode titled HOPELESS.
