SUNDAY UPDATE: If you’ve now seen the season finale, share your thoughts here; Mandi Bierly’s full recap is in the works.

ORIGINAL POST: Sunday marks the end of True Blood‘s fifth season, and by the look of the photos and clip HBO has released, our long wait to see story lines converge will finally be over. One shot (below) shows Nora, Eric, and Tara at Sookie’s house. You know they mean business because they’re wearing leather jackets. Presumably, they want Sookie to go to Authority headquarters with them to stop Bill and save Pam and Jessica. That’s why the picture above of a blood-splattered Eric and Sookie at the Authority compound is worrisome. Note the single tear running down Sookie’s cheek. What might she have just seen Bill do? (A third photo we included below just because who doesn’t want to see Pam looking fierce even in jail?)

The clip, meanwhile, teases what happens when Bill is finally served his breakfast, Sam. Fun fact: In a PopWatch poll, 21 percent of readers were willing to let little Emma die if it meant Eric and Pam would be reunited in the finale.
