Sookie and her powers take center stage in the witch war.
Anna Paquin as Sookie on HBO's "True Blood."

In this past Sunday's episode of True Blood, Martonia (Fiona Shaw) clearly had the upper-hand on the vampires as she staged a very public attack in front of audiences and the media that actually outdid Russell Edgington. Yet, things look like they’re going to change.

HBO released the episode descriptions for the final two episodes of Season 4 and clearly Sookie (Anna Paquin) takes a lead on the war between the witches and vampires to protect the ones she loves.

A few other things that caught our eye: Andy (Chris Bauer) gets some romancing, Jesus (Kevin Alejandro) begins to whip up some powerful brujo brew of his own, and somebody returns in the finale – could it be Russell (Denis O’Hare)?

STORY: 'True Blood' Season 4 Spoilers: Episodes 7-10 Revealed

Here are the official descriptions for the final two episodes airing in September:

Episode #47 (S4, Ep. 11):  “Soul of Fire”

Debut:  SUNDAY, SEPT. 4 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT)

As the Wiccan-vampire standoff reaches a critical juncture, Sookie (Anna Paquin) summons her faerie powers to prevent Marnie (Fiona Shaw) from bewitching Bill (Stephen Moyer), Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) and Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) into a suicide march, while Jesus (Kevin Alejandro) casts a secret spell designed to un-bind Marnie/Antonia and break the witch’s deadly defenses.  Sam (Sam Trammell) settles a score with Marcus (Dan Buran); Alcide (Joe Manganiello) confronts Debbie (Brit Morgan) about her allegiances; Andy (Chris Bauer) finds unexpected passion in the forest; Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) is consumed by the past.

Written by Mark Hudis; directed by Michael Lehmann.    

Episode #48 (S4, E12):  “And When I Die” (season finale)

Debut:  SUNDAY, SEPT. 11 (9:00-10:00 p.m.)

It’s Samhain, Wicca’s greatest holy day, and spirits of the dead surface in Bon Temps, giving Sookie valuable allies to combat Marnie’s newest incarnation.  Lafayette’s latest medium encounter imperils his relationship with Jesus; Jason (Ryan Kwanten) finds confession good for the soul, but not the body; Alcide makes a heartfelt appeal to the woman he loves; Terry (Todd Lowe) receives an unexpected visitor at Merlotte’s; Sam and Luna (Janina Gavankar) envision a storybook ending, for once; Nan (Jessica Tuck) wears out her welcome with Bill and Eric.  Debbie confronts Sookie and Tara (Rutina Wesley) with deadly consequences, and the denizens of Bon Temps brace for a new crisis with a familiar face.
