We officially have our first footage of Season 6 of True Blood! And it promises a helluva season. Since we’ve watched it, like, 47 times now, here’s a shot-by-shot analysis of what exactly we’re looking at!

  • Sookie and Eric running through hallways of what looks like the Authority building.

  • Pam and Tara with laser sights trained on their chests in Fangtasia! (It’s not a disco light show — we can tell you that much!)

  • A bloodied Jessica looking horrified.

  • Sookie saying, “Everybody out now!” and slipping on a puddle of vampire goo.

  • Someone saying tremulously, “What the hell was that?”

  • Bilith ripping electrical circuits out of a wall, clearly not afraid of electrocution.

  • A woman who sounds like Nora saying, “There’s no one left to protect us now.”

  • Pam taking a swing at Tara, who stops her punch.

  • Eric seeming to be posing incognito as a Louisiana official, surrounded by SWAT guys.

  • Eric saying, “If the humans want war, I’ll give them war.”

  • Alcide ripping off his shirt with a goofy growl.

  • Someone saying, “A tyrant is rising. It is the beginning of the end.”

  • A shadowy, bearded character who looks like he could be M. Warlow.

  • Sookie and Jessica looking around a dark house. (Cue tension!)

  • Macklyn driving and laughing maniacally as Jason, in the passenger seat, keeps a gun aimed at him.

  • Someone punching someone else. (It looks like Alcide striking Sam!)

  • Lafayette cocking a shotgun in someone’s face.

  • Jessica asking, “Is that Bill?”

  • Sookie responding, “Not anymore.”

  • Jessica looking worried.

  • Bililth turning around with crazy eyes.

  • Someone whispering, “You’re all gonna burn.”

  • Bilith walking out of a burning building.

  • Eric and Sookie in an Authority elevator, which jolts to a stop.

  • Bilith screaming like a T-Rex!
