True Blood season 5 has just begun, so it’s setting up so many story lines that it’s hard to tell where everything will lead. Last week’s episode of True Blood season 5 answered the questions last season left. This week’s episode of True Blood season 5 began new questions and set up where each character’s problems will lie.
Like previous seasons of True Blood, True Blood season 5 have all the character dealing with their own individual problems, but they’ll probably all eventually overlap. I’m curious to see how all these stories will overlap, because they all seem so different at the moment. Wondering what happened on the second episode of True Blood season 5? Then continue reading to see what happened on tonight’s episode of True Blood season 5.

Sookie and Lafayette must get a crazed Tara to eat so Lafayette slices his arm and lets her feed on him.

Bill says he does not, then the torturing begins. For Eric, he talks with the woman who brought them into the Authority’s headquarters about Nora. She tells him that Nora will get the true death.
