We’re just days away from the next episode of True Blood, and if last week’s episode is any indication, Season 6 is shaping up to be a complex and exciting ride!

The promo for True Blood Season 6, Episode 3 teases some serious drama with the werewolves, Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) and Governor Burrell, Bill’s (Stephen Moyer) new powers, and (of course) Warlow’s arrival. To prepare for Sunday, here’s our in-depth breakdown of the latest promo video.

0:02 — Bill Walks Into the Sun

This could be another one of Bill’s mind trips courtesy of Lilith, but we have a feeling this could be the real deal! The vamp did survive a staking, after all. Could it be possible that Bill can withstand the burning rays of the sun as well? His voiceover says it all: “I feel immortal.”


0:07 — Alcide Puts His Foot Down

In the last episode, Alcide (Joe Manganiello) helped Martha take little Emma away from Sam (Sam Trammell), but Rikki (Kelly Overton) takes issue with the trouble harboring the halfling will bring the Shreveport wolfpack. But Alcide is firm in his decision. “She’s wolf, she stays,” he declares.

0:09 — Eric Gets Down to Business With Willa

While we wouldn’t mind peeking out our windows and seeing Eric floating seductively in wait, the situation does not bode well for Governor Burrell’s daughter Willa. Intent on making the governor pay for trying to lock him up in vampire prison, Eric goes after Willa. “Are you daddy’s little girl,” Eric asks her.  The subsequent scenes show Governor Burrell pleading on the phone while Eric tapes Willa’s mouth shut after taking her to Fangtasia. Cut to another person being gagged as a bag put over his head and he is dragged down a brightly lit hallway. Mysterious...

0:14 — “They’re All Going to Burn”

Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) asks Bill to clarify what he meant when he said “They’re all gonna burn.” He tells her, “Vampires. Many, many of them.” A shot of someone burning outside in a field hits the statement home.

0:20 — Warlow!

Sookie (Anna Paquin) is minding her business at home, but faerie grandfather Niall (Rutger Hauer) senses Warlow’s fast approach. Jason (Ryan Kwanten) is ready too, pulling out his gun and saying, “It’s go time.”

0:24 — Bill Takes Action

Taking matters into his own hands (and fangs), Bill declares, “I have to stop it, I have to save them all.” Later, he shows up on Sookie’s doorstep and ominously tells her, “I play by a different set of rules now, Sookie,” as he grabs hold of her. Meanwhile, the faeries at the Faerie Club look to be in peril, as one of the male members is pulled by the foot in what looks like a flashback sequence.

0:29 — Swatted!

An army of Governor Burrell’s special police forces bust down the door to residence and yell, “Freeze, asshole!” The teaser cuts to Eric baring his fangs. Feisty!
