HBO has released a press release that is slightly tweaked from the previous TV Guide information. Below the Read More for those who stumble on my very spoilery page by accident. Missed some spoiler information earlier? Check out my running cheat sheet page of spoilers for the entire season.

Bill (Stephen Moyer) discovers that salvation comes at a price; Jason (Ryan Kwanten) senses a vampire attraction firsthand. Sookie (Anna Paquin) examines her future with Warlow (Rob Kazinsky), while Bon Temps braces itself when a new crisis threatens both humans and vampires.
Written by Kate Barnow; directed by Scott Winant.
So, if they don’t kill Bill (and I’m still crossing my fingers that somehow they will go there), is the price that he loses his special Lilith powers and becomes just plain ol’ Bill Compton again? Sigh, if so.
I’m also wondering what there could be about Jason’s “vampire attraction” with Violet that makes it different from his interactions with Jessica. He had sexual dreams about both Jess and Warlow, so will there be some new aspect of vampire attraction revealed?
Finally, now Sookie is described as “examining” her future with Warlow rather than “considering” it. Examining seems to imply some deeper attention being paid to the details of what a future with Warlow would be like. Is Sookie going to find something she doesn’t like in the proposal?
