Christopher Meloni showed off his extremely pointy fangs as Roman Zimojic, the Guardian of the Vampire Authority, in the latest episode of ‘True Blood’.
SPOILER ALERT: This entry contains information through the most recent episode of True Blood, “Authority Always Wins” (Season 5, Episode 2).
Another episode of True Blood is in the books, and for the second consecutive week, our favorite vampire drama didn’t disappoint. Tara continued to lose her mind, Terry’s PTSD-induced nightmares intensified and Emma turned into an adorable, pajama-clad werewolf! It was everything we could have hoped for and more.
There was some pretty significant plot development, too. Here are five takeaways from “Authority Always Wins.”

SPOILER ALERT: This entry contains information through the most recent episode of True Blood, “Turn! Turn! Turn!” (Season 5, Episode 1).
Following last week’s Game of Thrones finale, I was crestfallen: It sunk in that I have wait 10 months until the Season 3 premiere. Life will have to go on without Dany, Tyrion and Arya, and I’ll have to cope with a dragon and Robb Stark hair-free existence. Though I’ll see less of Joffrey, I still went through the requisite stages of grief: Denial, uncontrollable rage, and finally, acceptance (It’s going to be okay. Isn’t it? ISN’T IT?!)
Thankfully, something happened to stunt my depression. True Blood made its Season 5 debut. And while shows like Game of Thrones and Mad Men prefer slow burn tactics, steadily building toward late-season revelations, True Blood favors a start-with-a-bang approach, introducing chaos from the onset and making sense of everything (or at least a few things) later.
“Turn! Turn! Turn!” was no exception. Here are five takeaways from our long-awaited return to Bon Temps.
