True Blood’s” Sunday night episode is titled, “Burning Down The House.” Last week, viewers saw Antonia imprison her coven of witches and followers, who refused to go to Shreveport and battle the vampires. Taking a nitwit named Roy was all Antonia needed, because she quickly put Bill’s three sheriffs under her spell and sent them off to murder the king’s bodyguards and then sent Eric, who is also under a spell by Antonia, to attack the king on stage during a “tolerance” political rally. Sookie screamed “run” just in time for Bill and Nan to realize that the vampires under the witch’s spell are determined this week to kill their own king.
Tommy took a beating on his brother’s behalf, Alcide was unaware of his fiancĂ©e Debbie’s rage toward Sookie, who was almost captured by Antonia. Sam and Luna took their relationship to the next level, while trying to forget Marcus’s threat to destroy their relationship.
Tomorrow night, as all hell breaks loose in Shreveport, Sookie summons her most potent powers yet to save Bill from the carnage and furious attack he becomes the object of. However, in the process of saving Bill and finding new fairy powers, Sookie manages to break a witch’s spell, and it leads Marnie/Antonia to re-evaluate her mission. But don’t count Antonia out yet, she’s far from finished in her plan to make all vampires meet the true death!
Jason will urge Jessica to glamour him for Hoyt’s sake, but their lust for each other becomes overpowering for the two. In a desperate attempt to save his cousin, Terry (Todd Lowe) drags Andy to “Fort Bellefleur” for an intervention, but it doesn’t go as planned. Alcide, who is very moral and sick of drama, begins to reconsider his allegiances after Marcus’s fight with Tommy leaves him wanting more out of life, and Tommy goes back to an unwelcome homecoming with Sam.
Jesus, accompanied by Sookie, Lafayette and Jason, tries to breach the Moon Goddess Emporium’s defenses to liberate Tara and Holly. This will be an awakening of sorts for Jason, and he proves he has the stuff of a real hero. However, before the group is able to secure everyone, a furious Bill leads a brigade of vampires committed to blowing the place to kingdom come. However, Antonia is far from done. 

Over the next couple weeks, Antonia manages to stay one step ahead of the vampires, who are crafty. Jessica, Eric, Pam and Bill will fight to end the war and defeat the 400-year-old spirit of the witch, but will they be able to? By the season finale in two more weeks, two major past characters return. One will be beloved and it will lead to a highly emotional storyline for next season, and the other is hated, and the reveal will be nothing short of terrifying for all the citizens of Bon Temps and viewers who love their favorite characters.
“Burning Down the House” is written by Nancy Oliver and directed by Lesli Linka Glatter. Don’t miss it on HBO at 9 p.m. on Sunday night! Here are three previews of the exciting episode (“Burning Down the House”).

Some finale talk from The Sydney Morning Herald, it's a longer read at the link.
On television, Ball says, writers can spread their wings.
As for content, he foresees zombies as the next big trend. Maybe.
''We have a line in the last episode of True Blood this season where it's Halloween and they're all dressed up, and somebody goes, 'I'm a zombie. Don't you know zombies are the new vampires?' I've heard zombies, I've heard angels. I don't know. That's one of the great things about it all, nobody knows. It's just going to be one person who does something from a place of pure passion and that's going to catch attention.''
For Moyer, what differentiates Ball from other writer-directors is a rare combination of vivid imagination and an openness to collaboration. That has had a galvanising effect on his cast and crew.
''He's one of the most inclusive directors I've ever worked with,'' Moyer says. ''He [shoots it] the way he's written it, then once you've got it down that way, he will completely flip it on its head and do the antithesis of what you've just played … Usually, somebody who's written it himself wants it exactly how they see it in their head and they haven't got the imagination to say, 'Right, I've got that. Let's see what they can bring to the table.'
Moyer's praise is par for the course. In Hollywood, backslapping and flattery are the norm. What distinguishes Ball is the volume of praise, and the way actors fall over one another in the rush to his auditions.
''The cast and crew would walk over broken glass and hot coals to do anything for him,'' says Moyer. ''You just want to be brilliant for him.''

Guess that this is Jesus or Tio Luca because I already posted a photo of Lafayette wearing that shirt, so they are walking towards him and not Antonia .It would make sense if Lala was possessed by Luca, THEN goes after Antonia, it is a puzzlement.
                                      reposting Lafayette and his shirt, hmmm is that Jesus jacket?

There are only three more episodes of True Blood this season. Last week's episode left us with a few cliffhangers.  One of them, of course, is whether Marnie will succeed in getting Eric to kill Bill (unlikely, since he's a main character). If Eric is unsuccessful, the question is whether he'll continue to be under Marnie's control or will be freed. Then there's Tara and the other coven members who are trapped back in theMoongoddess Emporium.
In tonight's all new episode of True Blood, Sookie will manage to summon powers she hasn't used before - powers that turn out to be her most potent yet - in order to save Bill. HBO says that this will "break a spell".  The spell controlling Eric, perhaps?  But Marnie's failure to kill Bill will cause her to re-evaluate her mission.
Jason, who had sex with Jessica in the previous episode, begs her to glamour him so that he won't be forced to lie to Hoyt. Terry realizes that Andy's behavior is getting out of control and decides to drag him to "Fort Bellefleur" to hold an intervention.
Alcide, who witnessed Marcus and his cronies beating up Tommy decides to reconsider his allegiance with the werewolf alpha. Lafayette and Jason team up to break into the Moongoddess Emporium and try to free Tara and Holly.  But they'll have to work fast because Bill's patience with the witches is running out and he leads a small army of vampires who are determined to blow up the store.

Barbara of Skarsgardfans was at filming for some scenes and she thinks some of these photos might be from tonight's show and next weeks. She has a lot more  at the link, I'm just glad to see Pam again.
