Nobody's ever truly gone from the world of True Blood (even the dead!), so it's no surprise that another face from the past makes a return in season 5, which premieres June 10.

Entertainment Weekly reports that Alfre Woodard is reprising her role as Lafayette's schizophrenic mom, Ruby, in episoes 5 and 6. Last we saw Ruby, she was a patient at a facility where Jesus worked. That's how he and Lafayette met, then fell in love.

Sadly, Jesus died in the season 4 finale; so will Lafayette break the bad news to mommy dearest?

Woodard was nominated for an Emmy as a guest actress in a drama for the role, and we can't wait to see what she brings this year!
