True Blood, Joseph Manganiello
On Sunday's episode of True Blood, the witches and the vampires square off for what is sure to be this season's battle royale. Sookie, for perhaps the first time in the series, finds herself utterly alone in her fight against the world. Tara is off battling vampires. Alcide has reconciled with Debbie. Jason is too busy being forced to propagate a race of werepanthers. Bill is consumed by Portia Bellefleur and other kingly matters. Even her faerie godmother has abandoned her! Sure, Sookie has Amnesia Eric, but in his current state, what help is he? I ask you: Who will pay attention to Sookie, the neediest waitress in all of Renard Parish?! Read on to find out.

The drama stars Jeff Daniels as the co-anchor of a cable news show who must deal with a new team after his fellow host takes most of the staff with him to a new gig. Kennedy joins Olivia Munn, Sam Waterston, Alison Pill, Emily Mortimer and Dev Patel in the project.

Hung's Thomas Jane has long maintained a "no gay sex" mandate for his male prostitute character, Ray Drecker, and "that maxim still stands," he says. But when a rival anything-goes gigolo (The Vampire Diaries' Stephen Amell) hones in on Ray's territory in Hung's third season (premiering on HBO in October), Ray inches closer to the forbidden LGBT zone. Mid-season, he'll bed down with a pre-op transgender receptionist named Kyla before contemplating a full same-sex encounter. Kyla is played by transgender actress Jamie Clayton, whose only previous TV experience was cohosting VH1's TRANSform Me.
When Thomas first got wind of Ray's new adventures...
This week's episode of True Blood, "You Smell Like Dinner," launches two story lines that will seem familiar to readers of the Charlaine Harris novels on which this show is based. But while one story will hew closely to the text, another will move along much more swiftly, helped along by a topical addition. The title is apt. The scent of two characters will be specifically noted in dialogue, and at least three other characters will be made someone's figurative dinner — but not all in the way you'd expect.
True Blood, Marshall Allman

"What he wants deep down is a family," Allman tells TVGuide.com. "He wants to be loved, so that relationship just serves both of their needs. Max feels abandoned by Hoyt, and Tommy, even though he left his mom, feels abandoned by his mom because she chose her husband, my dad, over me."

Welcome back, fangbangers! Mickey O'Connor here, ready to dive into the cesspool of platelets, fornication and biscuits with gravy that is True Blood. For this first episode, my recap will be pretty, well, recappy, since there is so much new ground to cover, but after this week, I'm hoping to keep things on the shorter side to put the spotlight where it belongs: on your brilliant observations in the comments section.

True Blood has brought witches, werewolves and vampires to life over the last three seasons, but everything you think you know about the supernatural beings will be upended this season.
"Everything you thought you can count on, you can't," executive producer Alan Ball says. "Vampires are not stronger than certain humans, shapeshifters can do things other than shift and there are ghosts."
Here are 10 things we do know about what's coming up, straight from the cast of True Blood:
