More from Eonline's Spoiler ChatTrue Blood fans, start preparing yourselves now: Two people who have never kissed before on the HBO hit series will be sharing their first smooch come this Sunday! So who's locking lips? 
lorrainecollins: So not feeling this out-of-nowhere Eric-Bill bromance, any Eric-Sookie action coming up on True Blood?
OK, how do we put this nicely? Ummm…No. There's not going to be any Eric and Sookie lovin' in this week's episode, because little miss mind-reader is getting hot and heavy with someone else! Yup, you read that right, but this hookup may or may not be alcohol induced. Of course, we can't tell you who it is, so please stop sending chocolates to the E! Online offices, we're on a sugar overload right now. And speaking of sweet things, get ready for the most adorable scene between Bill and his teen vamp, Jessica. In fact all of the makers have some truly touching scenes with their protégés this week. Awww. (edit: does she go for the wolf?)

TVGuide's Natalie Abrams talks to Scott Foley- We'll finally get to learn what happened in Iraq to spark Terry's PTSD and Patrick's arrival in Bon Temps. What can you tease?
Scott Foley: Well, the reason that I'm back and have found Terry is because of what happened back in Iraq. An event like what Terry and Patrick and the rest of their squad went through is so mind-bending and life-changing that it has to be dealt with one way or the other. Of course, True Blood being True Blood and staying true to fashion adds this fantastic supernatural element to this horrific event.
Can Patrick actually be trusted?
Foley: Now or then? I think that's a question for Terry to answer. It depends on who you talk to. If you ask me, I say yes, Patrick can definitely be trusted. If you ask Arlene or Terry, I think they might have a different answer. I think Arlene would definitely have a different answer than Patrick. The guys built bonds and relationships going through traumatic events. I think there was a point where Terry trusted Patrick explicitly and I think maybe questions himself.
What can you tell us about Terry and Patrick's trip to hunt down Eller?
So they've driven across the country looking for this buddy of theirs, another guy from their squad. We find him in abject terror. He is fearing for his life, much in the same way, but to a greater degree, than Terry and Patrick at this point. The way that this character has chosen to protect himself from the larger, supernatural element is incredible. They find this guy holed up, terrified. It could be for the end of the world, but it turns out it's for this larger supernatural element that they're all afraid of.
We've seen the effects of Terry's PTSD, but Patrick's seems just below the surface, ready to burst out at any moment. Will we see that explored while they deal with this supernatural element?
Foley: There is something else that happens to people who've been through traumatic events. Post-traumatic stress disorder is one of those things. It manifests itself in different ways. Terry's is very visible. Patrick's seems initially not as apparent, but at a certain point you get to see all that stress, everything that he's dealing with, all the emotions of having been through not just a war but this specific event and this specific traumatic decision that they made out in the battlefield. 
Could going after Eller ultimately backfire? Terry and Arlene's relationship already seems to be suffering because of it.
There's every possibility that what these guys are attempting to do to try to right this wrong that happened out in the field could blow up in their faces in a number of ways. Eller, who they've gone to see and who is living his life in terror, could snap and do something to them that's irreparable. The greater supernatural element could be too much for them to handle, there's a lot of questions that need to be answered. MORE

Todd Lowe interview- “In the past they’ve written me as really warm, and I’m just trying to maintain and keep it together, but now it’s all exploding out of me,” Lowe, 35, told The Hollywood Reporter during an interview in THR’s cover lounge.
When Foley’s Sgt. Patrick Devins comes to Bon Temps, he awakens a part of Terry that seems to be tied to his PTSD and has something to do with fire.
Terry’s behavior is becoming more and more erratic, and so he agrees to head out on the road with Devins to search for their other Marine friend, who may be causing all the trouble.
“It’s an uglier side of Terry that we haven’t seen, and hopefully the story arc will come back around and we’ll see why Terry is behaving the way he has been,” Lowe tells THR. MORE

True Blood is sinking its teeth into HSN! The HBO show teamed up with the retailer to launch Forsaken, a line of vampire-inspired beauty and home products starting August 9th. “Even into its fifth season, True Blood continues to be wildly popular in pop culture so we are always looking to provide new ways for fans to engage with the brand,” James Costos, HBO’s Vice President of Global Licensing, told “We felt a fragrance line that was elegant, mysterious and sensual lent itself naturally to the themes of the show.” The Forsaken collection includes a fragrance (developed by mega-perfume company Givaudan), a body cream, a body veil, a DL & Co. candle(featuring a lid with a fang on it) and diffusersnail polishes with vampy names like “Let It Bleed” (which is scented!) by Deborah Lippmann, as well as the celebrity manicurist’s first-ever lipstick, fittingly a blood red hue named “Bite Me.” “The collection taps into the essence of the show—romantic, dark, mysterious and extremely sexy,” added Betsy Olum, the General Manager of Beauty and Merchandising Strategy for HSN. Click through the gallery to preview the entire lineup, and shop it for $25 to $60 on HSN and starting August 9th.

New Fearnet interview with Giles Matthey-
Did you watch True Blood before you were cast?
The only exposure I had to True Blood was seeing two rather handsome men circling like dogs around a pretty blonde lady. I thought, "They look ridiculously handsome. I'm changing the channel now." When I originally read for the role, I did a taping at my agency, and had no idea what True Blood was. It's not very big in England, and even though I had been in New York for two years, at the time I didn't watch much TV - I was all about school and focus and all those boring things. A couple weeks [after I read for the role] I was in Los Angeles and I was told to go in [to read] for Alan Ball. I didn't have much idea who he was, which I think helped me in the audition. I was so lucky and fortunate that I was cast in the role, and from then on, I watched it a lot. I actually became a fan, which is kind of weird because you get cast in something, then you watch it, then you are in it, but you become a fan in between, then you get nervous. It's like, "Oh my gosh, you're Sookie! You're Alcide!" It was very bizarre.
I became a fan after I got the role. It was really the writing and the acting. The thing about True Bloodfor me is that it would be very easy to just tap into the current culture of vampires and fantasy, and it is very easy to do it wrong. The actors on True Blood are just brilliant. MORE
