Warning: Bloody good 'True Blood' spoilers

HBO just released the titles and extended loglines for all five of True Blood's August episodes and man, they are juicy. Have a look yourself... - Aug. 2: "Release Me" Betrayed by Daphne, Sam finds himself in an unenviable predicament at the hands of Maryann and her wild-eyed minions. Imprisoned with Hugo in the F.O.T.S. church, Sookie uses her telepathic powers to reach out to Bill, who is being detained at the hotel by a stubbornly obsessive Lorena. After crossing a line with the Newlins, a fearful Jason tries to sever his ties with the Fellowship of the Sun, but gets plenty of resistance from Steve and his enforcer Gabe. Crave more Blood? Good 'cause four more spoilery paragraphs await you after the jump... Aug. 9: "Timebomb" Sookies captivity takes an unexpected turn when Eric arrives to do his masters bidding on the eve of the Fellowships lockdown. In Bon Temps, Sam finds himself in hot water after making a gruesome discovery at Merlottes, and Andy proves no help in coming to his defense. Sent home by Bill, Jessica and Hoyt learn that when it comes to sex, every time is the first time. Tara and Eggs devour a mysterious meal prepared by Maryann, with unexpected results. After Jason pays off his debt to the vampires, Godric looks to enlighten his more single-minded followers. Aug. 16: "I Will Rise Up" A wounded Eric plays Sookie for a sucker, to Bills dismay, and ends up getting inside her head. Later, Sookie and Jason bond over their recent adventures. Blaming Eggs for Taras bruises and bizarre behavior, Lafayette and Lettie Mae try to figure out a way to pry their kin from Maryanns clutches. Hoyt defends his relationship with Jessica to Maxine, to no avail. Jailed by Bud along with a group of Bon Temps revelers, Sam looks for a way to escape and avoid capture by an increasingly obsessed Maryann. In Dallas, Eric and the vampires defend their recent actions to Nan Flanagan and are shocked when Godric decides to take the fall for their PR disaster. Aug. 23: "New World in My View" Sookie, Bill, and Jason return to a Bon Temps turned upside down by Maryann. Lured to Merlottes by Arlene, Sam and Andy find cold comfort in their refuge from a group of bloodthirsty revelers. Bill discovers that traditional vampire techniques dont work on Maryann; Hoyt and Jessica try to keep a lid on Maxines 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. Aug. 30: "Frenzy" With the crisis in Bon Temps careening out of control, Bill seeks out the advice of Sophie-Anne (Evan Rachel Wood), the Vampire Queen of Louisiana, but must exercise patience before she gives him critical information. Meanwhile, Sookie and Lafayette find that protecting Tara from herself is more difficult than they anticipated; a desperate Sam turns to an unlikely source for assistance; and Jessica tests Hoyts allegiance to Maxine.

Anna Paquin Isn't Uptight With Nudity (And Didn't Calculate A Vampire Comeback Either) - Featured

And only because I know some people who gawk at the idea of Anna Paquin naked. "Ohmeegosh, she's gone more nakeder than I thought!" Well, maybe for some it is the selling point of True Blood --it's a minority, but I can't blame them--so of course that question would be posed to Sookie herself. "I feel fine [about the nude scenes]," she told AOL TV. "Although the way that people ask me about it all the time, I feel like maybe I should feel uptight about it. But I really don't ... I wouldn't do it if it was too much. Everyone's very respectful of the boundaries of whichever actor is doing stuff like that on the set. So, it's not cameras being thrown anywhere and anything can happen, you know? It's quite choreographed." The clarification? "Other things happen in the plot, you know what I mean?" she said. "There's actual plot. But yes, it's a sexy vampire show and yes, there's more getting it on, so to speak." All right, Sookie. What about you, then? She's soon headed to Dallas, after all, after that monster and that deal that we saw last week. "It's a big city and ... there are more open vampires, or outed vampires," she said. "I guess the analogy is if you live in a small town, there may be a gay bar, where as if you live in a big city there could be a whole bunch of them. I think that's one of the obvious parallels that gets drawn with our show, that people's chosen lifestyles and whatever are more accepted in bigger cities." One final question, although I'm obviously shaking this thing up: what about the Twilight comparisons? "Just because two things happen to end up being released around the same time, it's not like we all got together beforehand and had a chat about how we're going to make sure vampires had a comeback," she said. "But from the way people ask about it, you'd think that we'd all had sort of a sit-down. But it's coincidence, really." Okay, so I never saw it that way. Source Here
