As we’re learning that the witches’ power can and will create dangerous situations for the Bon Temps vampires, HBO has released the official descriptions for Episodes 7-10 airing in August.

The descriptions reveal that Sookie (Anna Paquin) tries to figure out how to reconcile her relationship with a kinder amnesia-stricken Eric (Alexander Skarsgard), while including Bill (Stephen Moyer) back in their lives. It’s also apparent that her fairy powers will come in handy in the war between witches and vampires.

We just watched Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) give a weak and beaten Jason (Ryan Kwanten) her healing blood, which will make the two closer. That’s not a good sign for her relationship with Hoyt – Jessica’s blood lust has already caused her to wander once before.

And Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) may have become tired of being a vampire’s rag doll. Possibly after seeing Marnie’s (Fiona Shaw) abilities, he begins to explore his own witchy powers. Meanwhile, Luna’s (Janina Gavankar) may have found another skinwalker -- shapeshifters who can change into human form – in Tommy.
