True Blood: Cold Ground

Numbed by tragedy, Sookie looks for refuge from the cacophony of her friends’ and neighbors’ inner voices.

Tara resists the overtures of her mother Lettie Mae (Adina Porter), who’s trying to rid herself of a demon and needs her daughter’s help. Sam and Tara make a connection in their mutual search for “something real.”
