In just one week, "True Blood" will return to HBO for its fifth season… and it's bound to get bloody very quickly with the return of the insane vampire king, Russell Edgington (Denis O'Hare).

To quench the collective thirst of "True Blood" fans everywhere, HBO has released three short scenes from the upcoming season. In the first clip, Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) makes plans to skip town while his reluctant ally, Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) cleans up the mess they made when they slaughtered Nan Flanagan (Jessica Tuck) and her men.


For the second clip, Terry Bellefleur (Todd Lowe) and his wife, Arlene (Carrie Preston) welcome Terry's old war buddy, Patrick (Scott Foley) to their temporary home, as some unknown tension lies just under the surface between the two men.


And finally, the werewolf Alcide Herveaux (Joe Manganiello) approaches Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) with the news of Russell's reemergence and an offer to protect her. Unfortunately for Sookie, she has to decide whether to tell Alcide that she killed his former lover, Debbie Pelt (Brit Morgan) in self defense…



Don't miss the fifth season of "True Blood," starting Sunday, June 10 on HBO!
