We finally have a first look at True Blood Season 7 — and not just the vague graveyard trailer! Scattered in the HBO Spring 2014 preview, which is a combined trailer for all of HBO's spring shows, is at the very least about five collective seconds of True Blood footage. (The same thing happened with Game of Thrones back in December.) Fortunately, there's enough footage for us to totally over-analyze what's happening. We'll even include the timestamps so you can pore over the moments yourself! (The trailer is embedded below.)

Jessica Hamby (Deborah Ann Woll) opens up the HBO Spring Preview looking semi-shocked — which could mean any number of things. Maybe she just saw New James?

Also, is it just us, or do those bite marks look… kind of fresh? Watch out, girl!


Sookie Looking Serious: 0:07

Although Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) is always getting serious about something, we have a little more to work with here. The string lights in the background, for example, look like a party at Merlotte's, now owned by Arlene Fowler Bellefleur (Carrie Preston).


Pam Makes an Appearance: 0:13

There's not a whole lot to see here, except that it looks like Pamela Swynford De Beaufort (Kristin Bauer) is at Fangtasia — so it may continue to be a home base for Season 7, even though the government shut it down in Season 6.


Alcide Kisses (Probably) Sookie: 0:26

Alcide Herveaux (Joe Manganiello) leans in to kiss a blond girl in a white floral sweater, and considering when we last left the series his main kissing-partner was Sookie, we're going to assume this means these two are still on when Season 7 starts. Plus, 12 seconds later we see Sookie in the same outfit.


Sam, Jason, Sookie, Alcide, and Andy: 0:38

Aww, the gang's all here! However, it does look like Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell), Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten), Sookie, Alcide, and Andy Bellefleur (Chris Bauer) are gearing up for a fight...


Tara Bares Fangs, Shows Crazy Cleavage: 1:19

Is that… something on fire in the background? Tara Thornton (Rutina Wesley) looks threatened, but also like she's about to have some fun neutralizing whatever that threat is. Oh boy.



Sad Bill: 1:25

UGH. Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) makes his butthurt guilt face. On a scale of one to infinity, how sick are you of Sad Bill? This Lestat Louis de Pointe du Lac chugging rat blood in an alley routine got old in Season 1, bro. It's enough to make you miss Billith.


Jason With a Rifle, Doing Cop Stuff: 1:26

Oh good, Jason's still a cop! He loves being a cop. Seriously, though, this doesn't tell us a whole lot, as Jason wears the uniform for his job, and was often seen carrying a rifle before he became a lawman.



We're a little concerned about the absence of Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard). He can't have actually met the true death, right?! At least we know that A. Skars will be back in some capacity for Season 7...

Have any theories about True Blood Season 7? Let us know in the comments!
