Sookie is introduced to her escort in finding Bill, Sam confronts his newly-found brother and Tara wants Franklin to bite her.
The search for Bill and the possible romance between Sookie and Alcide begin next week on "True Blood" episode 3.03. Sookie heads to Jackson, Mississippi in the company of Alcide, a werewolf bodyguard assigned by Eric to protect her.
"There is definitely some [sexual] energy between the two of them," said executive producer Alan Ball to EW. "It's not like either one of them is looking for romance, but they're thrown into several intense situations [and] it's hard not to bond on a deeper level."
Meanwhile, Franklin charms Tara, and gets Jessica out of a jam. Jason is distracted from his police exams, Bud reaches the end of his rope, Arlene copes with unexpected news and Eric bequeaths a gift to Lafayette. Haunted by visions from his past, Bill makes a surprising pledge of allegiance.
"It Hurts Me Too" airs Sunday, June 27 on HBO. Those craving for more "True Blood" after last night's episode can enjoy a Postmortem featurette which is released on HBO's official site right after an episode airs. The one for "Beautifully Broken" contains a footage about the significance of werewolves in the Nazi era.
