Waiting sucks, even when it's just between Sundays. With the next episode of True Blood still almost a week away, we're looking for any clue about what comes next we can find. Fortunately, the promo for Season 6 Episode 4: "At Last" is rife with hints about what's coming up.

We've taken a close look at the promo. Here's what we've learned.

A new love interest for Sookie? After a few shots of Sookie getting dressed up — helloooo cute bra! — we see her asking Ben Flynn very deliberately, "What is it about me that you want?" Hmmm ... is their special connection about to get a bit more special?

War: "It is us against them!" Pam says. "This is war." We see a SWAT team police force running around with guns, so it appears she's not wrong.

Sookie needs to be protected. "It is Sookie who carries the Fae,"  Niall says. "It is her we need to protect." Who is he telling that too?

Lightning! At :13, we see someone getting attacked by a bolt of light.

Emma is taken. The werewolfs are in panic-slash-attack mode, as someone shouts "he took Emma!" at :14.

Kids are all grown up. At :20 Bill and Jess scope out Andy's fairy "kids" — now clearly teens, at least.

Jessica gets her feed on. At :23 we see Jessica about to feed on a young woman, and at :25 we see it happen. Could that be one of Andy's daughters? Bill certainly seems to be making friends with one of them at :24, and throughout the promo we see him looking at some blood in a lab, so it would appear he gets what he wants from them.

Tara's busy. At various points in the preview we see Tara in a fight, Tara creeping in the shadows, etc. Clearly, something is going down with her, probably related to Pam's "war" comment, and also...

The SWAT team breaks into Ginger's house. It appears the SWAT team from the beginning of the promo has tracked Eric and Co. down to Ginger's, but they're already gone.

Only Warlow can kill Lilith. "Warlow is the progeny!" we hear at the end of the promo. "Only he can kill Lilith"
