In watching the preview for next week’s “True Blood” it looks as if things are heating up between Roman (Chris Meloni) and Russell (Denis O’Hare), while the fairies continue their light show and the humans fend for themselves. In addition to the previously released teaser, HBO shared two clips, one where Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) makes a promise, the other where Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård) gives Alcide (Joe Manganiello) a bit of vampire brainwashing.

Here’s the preview of Episode #54 (5.06): “Hopeless”: “The aftermath at the asylum leaves Sookie (Anna Paquin) with an eerie sense of foreboding. At Fangtasia, Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) breaks up a vamp-girl fight, praising Tara (Rutina Wesley) for her tenacity. Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) visits Ruby Jean (Alfre Woodard), who also received a disturbing message from Jesus (Kevin Alejandro). Fearing for his family’s safety, Terry (Todd Lowe) blames his curse for his troubles with Arlene (Carrie Preston). Alcide (Joe Manganiello) challenges J.D. (Louis Herthum); Sam (Sam Trammell) offers to help Andy (Chris Bauer) investigate the recent shootings; Roman (Chris Meloni) lays out his plans to take out Russell (Denis O’Hare).” (Written by Alan Ball; directed by Dan Attias.) Playdates: July 15, 18, 19 and 21
