Call him a realist. Eric’s first act of taking on Russel seems to be planning for the worse, as you’ll see in this clip from next wee’ks episode of True Blood titled “I Smell a Rat.” Does True Blood’s original bad boy vampire stand a chance against this ancient foe? I can’t see Alan Ball letting go of Eric anytime in the near future.
In the next clip, we get a look at one of True Blood’s second season nemeses, The Fellowship of the Sun’s own Steve Newlin, capitalizing on Russel’s transgression.
A reluctant Bill warns Sookie about the dangers she will face. Jesus (Kevin Alejandro) is intrigued by the mysterious qualities of V. Sam’s recent fit of rage triggers dark memories. Eric takes precautions and fulfills a wish; Arlene turns to Holly (Lauren Bowles) for help with a pressing problem; Jason deals with the unexpected, both with Tara and Crystal; Jessica is torn between Tommy and Hoyt. After communing with Talbot (Theo Alexander), Russell promises to extract vengeance on his enemies.
True Blood airs Sunday on HBO
