[This post contains spoilers for the June 10 season 5 premiere of "True Blood" on HBO.]
“True Blood's" fifth season picked up on Sunday right where we last left off: with Tara bleeding out on Sookie’s kitchen floor.
Though I wish Sookie and Lafayette had allowed Tara to die along with Debbie Pelt, Pam showed up to save the day. (Upon seeing the blood and gore, Pam said, “Color me impressed. You guys know how to party.”)

Baby will soon make three for “True Blood” on-and-off-screen couple Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer, and Paquin showed off her growing bump recently in Los Angeles.
The pair attended the red carpet premiere for season 5 of HBO’s epic vampire saga, and though the 29-year-old Oscar winner stayed mum about the couple’s first child together, Moyer was a bit more vocal.
It probably helps that the 42-year-old has been to this rodeo before, having already had two other children from a previous relationship.

If you're Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer, first comes the HBO show, then love, and then the baby: Paquin's rep tells CNN that the "True Blood" actress and her husband/co-star Moyer are expecting their first child together.
Paquin, 29, and Moyer, 42, wed in August 2010 in Malibu after meeting on the set of HBO's sexy supernatural series. They're expecting their bundle of joy in the fall.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Moyer has two other children – Billy, 12, and Lilac, 10 – from a previous relationship.
Both "True Blood" stars will be back for the show's fifth season when it launches June 10.

As we get ready for a fifth season of sexy supernatural drama in Bon Temps, Alan Ball is planning to ease up on the reins.
The "True Blood" creator has announced that he'd step down as showrunner following the fifth season, reports the New York Times. There's still a big "if" surrounding the announcement, however, as a sixth season of "True Blood" isn't guaranteed.
"If we proceed to season six, the show will remain in the very capable hands of the talented team of writers and producers who have been with the show for a number of years," HBO said. "Alan would take a supervisory role and not be the day-to-day showrunner."
Meanwhile, Ball's still expected to develop show concepts for Cinemax and HBO (which is owned by the same parent company as CNN), and to that end, will be bringing a new series set in a small town in Pennsylvania Amish Country to Cinemax.

As it turns out, Joe Manganiello's wolfish "True Blood" character Alcide doesn't strip down on the show purely for your enjoyment. Perhaps hard to believe, but true, Manganiello tells Out magazine in an interview.
"As far as the butt cheek stuff goes," the 35-year-old actor says, "it just makes sense. It's not gratuitous; it's realistic. If you're a werewolf and you transform, you lose everything and there are your butt cheeks."
"True Blood," Manganiello continues, "is a deconstruction of supernatural creatures. It's not like those other werewolf projects, where you magically reappear with tiny jean shorts on." FULL POST
