True Blood Season 6 is rushing by, and this preview for Episode 8: “Dead Meat” (August 4) promises even more action next week — and more near-death experiences for beloved characters.

Based on this promo, it looks like Sookie will have to promise herself to Warlow to get his help, Eric is not pleased with Bill, Jason is in big trouble, our faves meet the sun room because they refused to drink the contaminated Tru Blood, and more. Seems exciting!

Not enough intel to tide you over? Here’s the official Season 6, Episode 8 synopsis:

Sookie (Anna Paquin) faces a major dilemma in deciding whether to broker a deal between Warlow (Rob Kazinsky) and Bill (Stephen Moyer). In vamp camp, Jason (Ryan Kwanten) gets to know Violet (Karolina Wydra), while Sarah (Anna Camp) goes to extremes to keep Tru Blood flowing. Alcide (Joe Manganiello) makes a decision that will impact the futures of Nicole (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) and Sam (Sam Trammell).
