Dreading what soft-porn might lurk, I made myself watch episode 5 of True Blood as air-ed in New Zealand – on Prime last night. Warning: plot revealed.

2009 True Blood Episode 5 (season 1).

It this episode, we find out more about Bill Comptom’s (Moyer) past – how he became a vampire. Sookie Stackhouse (Paquin) stops going out with Bill – end of Episode 4 – and goes out with Sam Merlotte (Trammell) instead. Jason Stackhouse (Kwanten) continues to experiment with ‘V’ – vampire bloody – and sleeping with the women of Bons Temp.

Bill served in a local regiment and fought in the “war of southern Independence”. On his way home, at the end of the war he is bitten by, and drinks the blood of, a vampire – turning him into a vampire. Incidentally, the vampire, in the guise of a war widow, bears a striking resemblance to Sookie’s grandmother – coincidence or plot hook to come.

Sookie, returns home from her unsatisfactory date – with Sam – to find what looks like her grandmother, her throat cut, on the kitchen floor. Oh the suspense …
