Resting for a week during Fourth of July celebration, "True Blood" will be back on Sunday, July 12 with the episode "Shake and Fingerpop". A scene is clipped, showing the chemistry between Eric and Bill as well as explaining how such a powerful vampire in Dallas that they are about to rescue, got abducted.
With Jessica in tow, Bill and Sookie head to Dallas to carry out Eric's vampire-reconnaissance mission, but a surprise awaits them at the airport. At the Light of Day Institute, Jason falls victim to a practical joke, but has the last laugh when the Newlins anoint him for a higher calling.
Maryann throws Tara a birthday party at Sookie's, attracting much of Bon Temps to its Bacchanalian revelry. Sam postpones his departure from town to attend the bash, connecting with Daphne in the process. Having barely escaped Fangtasia, Lafayette finds himself reluctantly pulled back into Eric's orbit.
On another news, the "True Blood" panel at 2009 San Diego Comic Con this year has been unveiled. It will take place on Saturday, July 25 at 5:15 P.M. at Ballroom 20. Participating are executive producer Alan Ball, book writer Charlaine Harris, Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Nelsan Ellis, Rutina Wesley, Sam Trammell, Alexander Skarsgard, Michelle Forbes and Deborah Ann Woll.
