True Blood: Watch the First Season 5 Trailer (VIDEO)

Not gonna lie: I stopped watching True Blood when that one season opened with Sookie in a faerie world and weirdos started throwing fireballs all over the place, so I'm unable to tell you what's going on in this first new-footage-including trailer for True Blood's fifth season. But it at least appears to be faerie-free, so it's got that going for it.

A couple things I did notice: Who belongs to the throat Eric is sticking his tongue down? What's Steve Newlin gonna be like as a vampire? Is Tara REALLY a goner? And is it possible for Jessica not to be the hottest thing in the universe?
