Russell Edgington tries to lure Sookie out of her safe zone by threatening Jason, while Jessica pleads for Bill's help.
Russell Edgington is executing his plans to get fairy's blood in the next episode of "True Blood". Wanting to be able to walk in the sun, he holds Jason hostage in order to bring Sookie out and get her blood. Seemingly in the fairy club, Sookie screams her brother's name but other fairies prevent her from risking her own life.
Jessica asks Bill to help Jason, but he gives her an order she's loath to carry out. Jessica is seen lying next to a seemingly unconscious Jason on the ground and crying, saying she's sorry. Bill himself is slipping further into religious fervor.
Meanwhile, armed with a damning video of Russell and Steve, the military delivers an ultimatum to the Authority. Claude and Maurella take Sookie to meet the faerie elder, who may know something about an ancient family secret. Alcide reconnects with his father; Sam and Luna hitch a ride into the Authority.
"True Blood" will return with the penultimate episode of season 5 on Sunday, August 19 at 9 P.M. ET on HBO.
Deborah Ann Woll recently played coy when asked if Jason would become a vampire. "I can't believe they let that image out (of Jason in what appears to be the womb stage of his transformation) Well, Jason is very pale [in the grave] and Jessica is lying beside him so...," she told Entertainment Weekly.
On the season finale that will air August 26, the Jessica depicter teased, "There's going to be more questions than answers. It's definitely the bloodiest one yet. And I think it's the best cliffhanger we've ever done."
