"True Blood" might have skipped 4th of July to avoid low rating intake but HBO was not going to leave its fans with nothing for a week straight. The network released a set of new stills which can be spoilery for the curious minds.
One of them shows Tara and Jason in a hospital but it is unclear who they are visiting. The rest capture a pissed Vampire Queen of Louisiana, Jessica and Sam by Merlotte's jukebox, Lafayette frowning at something and Lorena in a car as well as behind Bill while he makes a call, presumably to Sookie.
In the next "True Blood", Sookie joins Alcide at a raucous engagement party for his former fiancee, Debbie Pelt. Eric is given a deadline to locate Bill, Andy gets a promotion and draws Jason's attention, Franklin takes Tara on a road trip, Arlene is irked by Jessica's arrival at Merlotte's, Sam brokers a deal with Tommy and his parents and Bill "procures" dinner for Russell and Lorena.
Titled "9 Crimes", it airs July 11.
