True Blood Season 4 Episodes

12 Episodes 2011 - 2011

Life goes on in Bon Temps—with and without a "traveling" Sookie (Anna Paquin)—in the fourth season of the adaptation of Charlaine Harris' vampire novels as Eric (Alexander Skarsgård) and Bill (Stephen Moyer), the new king of Louisiana, take different public-relations routes to win over humans after the Russell Edgington debacle. But these two bickering vampires are wise enough to find common ground to confront a local witch named Marnie (Fiona Shaw), whose spiritual powers pose a serious threat to all vampires. Meanwhile, shape-shifter Sam (Sam Trammell) is attracted to a kindred spirit Luna (Janina Gavankar); Jason (Ryan Kwanten) finds himself the head of an unusual household; and Arlene (Carrie Preston) and Terry (Todd Lowe) begin to worry about their new baby's ominous behavior.
