Last season on "True Blood," somebody with a grudge against Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) and Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) may have been behind the release of Russell Edgington (Dennis O’Hare); the crazed Vampire King who vowed vengeance against them and their mutual lover, Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin).

While "True Blood" won't return for its fifth season until June, HBO has released a behind-the-scenes glimpse of a preview scene in which the werewolf Alcide (Joe Manganiello) visits Sookie and gives her the bad news about Edgington's return before offering to protect her. However, Sookie's friend, Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) is definitely not welcoming Alcide's assistance.

Fair warning, the language in this clip is very NSFW, so if you're in an office or around kids, turn down the volume.


We may infer from this scene that Lafayette is possibly the mysterious man (glimpsed in the season five teaser trailer) helping Sookie to bury the bodies of her friend, Tara Thornton (Rutina Wesley) and her murderer, Debbie Pelt (Brit Morgan); whom Sookie killed in revenge. They must have done a good job of cleaning up too, because Alcide doesn't seem to be aware that his former lover Debbie died in that room hours earlier.

"True Blood" season 5 will kick off on Sunday, June 10 only on HBO!
