'True Blood' Recap Of 'Authority Always Wins': Respect Christopher Meloni

Watch out Sookeh and Beel -- Stabler is in the house. Christopher Meloni made his first "True Blood" appearance as Roman, a member of the vampire Authority, in the second episode of Season 5 this week.

Also in the episode, entitled "Authority Always Wins," Tara -- and Sookie and Lafayette -- struggled with her newfound vampire-hood, Terry got creepier and in one of the most exciting parts of the episode, viewers finally got a flashback to how Pam and Eric met. Period costumes! Hookers! Human Pam! "True Blood" also began exploring religious fundamentalism -- albeit vampire religion.
