"True Blood" won't return for its fifth season until June 10, and HBO isn't making the wait any less painful to bear with this new teaser for the upcoming run.
Packed with tension in its brief 37 seconds, the teaser is heavy on spine-tingling atmosphere but short on actual answers. In the scene, Sam Merlotte (played by Sam Trammell) and his lady-friend Luna Garza (Janina Gavankar) sit on the couch, trying to sort out what the drama's about in Bon Temps. Sam asks Luna if she knows of anybody who wants to do her harm. Luna laments the loss of some "wonderful people." Sam takes note of a disturbing and perhaps menacing presence.
And then ... nothing. Aside from the slogan "Waiting Sucks."
Yeah, no kidding.
