The title of the next episode of True Blood is "Trouble," and that can mean a lot of different things. There's trouble for Sookie who has to face an army of werewolves super-charged with V from a vampire king. There's trouble for Tara, kidnapped by Franklin. There's trouble for Eric and Bill, both having to prove their lies to vampire royalty. And there's trouble for Jason, who has to be a cop.

Oh yes my friends, we've got trouble with a capital "T," and that rhymes with "V" and that stands for vampires.

Here's the official description for this episode:

"Alcide and Sookie turn to an alpha-wolf "packmaster" for advice on how to deal with Russell's minions. Tara considers a proposal from Franklin, who's completed his mission for Russell; Joe Lee breaks his promise to Sam and Tommy; Lafayette learns the meaning of patience from Jesus, his mother's orderly; Jason meets his match in a mysterious girl named Crystal. An heirloom reminds Eric of his past and his ongoing thirst for vengeance."

And here's the video preview:

Based on the description and video, here are the three things I'm most excited about:

I'm glad to see Tara get a story, even if it is being captured by vampires. Also, James Frain is doing a fantastic job and it's a credit to True Blood that they keep getting such strong actors.

It looks like the Lafayette-Jesus love train is finally coming out of the station, I just hope the death he's talking about isn't Lafayette's mom. I want more of her crazy racism.

It looks like Jason Stackhouse is a cop who does patrols shirtless. The only thing better than a man in uniform is Jason out of one. It also makes me think of the Hot Cops from Arrested Development, and that always makes me smile.
