“True Blood” returns soon on HBO and Season 4 promises to be no less explosive than the previous three seasons. In the first preview, we saw Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) confess to Bill (Stephen Moyer) she’d fed on someone who wasn’t Hoyt (Jim Parrack).

Bill advised Jessica to be honest with Hoyt, but it looks like in the above preview that Jess and Hoyt are having their own domestic bliss problems without bringing that into the mix. Ain’t love grand? And she mentions his mama! Oooh, snap.

Meanwhile, the sexual tension that’s been brewing between Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) and Sookie (Anna Paquin) isn’t slowing at all. In the sneak peek below, Eric tells Sookie that once vampires find out she’s a fairy, she’ll need protection. And he’s happy to provide the … protection.

We just bet he is.

“True Blood” returns to HBO Sunday, June 26 at 9 p.m ET.
