Sookie is right down investigating what kind of creature has claws and attacks the people of Bon Temps. Through the newly-released sneak peek of "True Blood", Hoyt told them that two people had been found with a bad scratch on their backs, including the new Merlotte's waitress Daphne who had her heart split into two.
In "New World in My View", Sookie, Bill and Jason return to a Bon Temps turned upside down by Maryann. Bill discovers that traditional vampire techniques don't work on Maryann. Lured to Merlotte's by Arlene, Sam and Andy find cold comfort in their refuge from a group of bloodthirsty revelers.
Meanwhile, Hoyt and Jessica try to keep a lid on Maxine's madness and Sookie tries to push through the darkness consuming Tara. With all hell breaking loose, Jason takes the bull by the horns to rescue Sam, at least for the moment.
"New World" will air on Sunday, August 23. The show has two more episodes left in the second season and will return in summer 2010 for another round.
