True Blood: Did you see the episode 9 preview?

While last night’s episode (episode 8, Time Bomb) was just as freaking OMG edge of your seat as it looked to be in the previews, season two’s episode 9 appears to be just as squee worthy.

Entitled I Will Rise Up, episode 9 will resolve this week’s cliffhangers… we hope, not that Alan Ball likes letting us off easy at the end of the show. Fan chatter indicates that ancient teenager Godric is a fangbanger favorite, and while Alan Ball insists Sookie and Bill’s relationship is “core” for the show, it looks like Eric’s interference might be taking a bit of a foothold.

(Now, before you go all shipper on me, remember, fangirls and boys, that Bill is not Prince Valiant the Vampire like he seemed for at least the first season. As the show let us see, he he had very few qualms about frolicking and flopping around a convulsing and hemorrhaging dying flapper for Lorena’s amusement.)

Below, the official season two, episode nine recap and preview. Go, Nan Flanagan!

A wounded Eric plays Sookie for a fool, to Bill’s dismay. Later, Sookie and Jason reminisce about their recent adventures, and end up bonding. Blaming Eggs for Tara’s bruises and bizarre behavior, Lafayette and Lettie Mae try to figure out a way to pry their kin from Maryann’s grasp. Hoyt defends his relationship with Jessica. In Dallas, Eric and the vampires defend their recent actions to Nan Flanagan, and are stunned when Godric decides to take responsibility for their PR disaster.
