Weekend Watch: A ‘True Blood’ Beginning versus a ‘Nurse Jackie’ End


A war may wage at your place this weekend. That's because two of the most anticipated television events of the season are happening on the same night at the same time: a True Blood season premiere on HBO versus a Nurse Jackie season finale on Showtime.

This Sunday at 9:00 p.m. you'll have to decide between the return of Bon Temps’ undead or year one of Jackie's sobriety success—so far (we'll be seeing Edie Falco as Jackie for a new season six, so who knows what could happen?).To help you out, we've included (short!) episode synopses from each show's site and clips that tease the moments we've all been waiting for. 

True Blood | Season 6, Episode 1: Who Are You, Really?
“In the season six premiere, Bill's bloody reincarnation ushers in a new era for vampires, faeries, and humans alike.”


Nurse Jackie | Season 5, Episode 10: Soul
“The fifth season ends with Jackie celebrating her one-year anniversary of being sober. But her joy is cut short when she fights with Frank. Later, Zoey becomes rigid around Prentiss, and Jackie takes something that doesn't belong to her.”
