Talk about spoilers: True Blood season 4 to be based on the book " Dead to the World" by Charlaine Harris

We know Alan Ball has said he will be basing each season of True Blood on a Sookie Stackhouse book, therefore Season 4 will be based on book four which is " Dead to the World"

This is the book when Sookie does "hook up" with the amnesic Eric. 

Wikipedia plot summary :
This novel takes place at the end of December, three weeks after the events of Club Dead. Bill and Sookie have broken up due to his betrayal with Lorena. He informs Sookie he is going to Peru at the beginning of the book. Shortly after Bill’s departure, Sookie, on her way home after working at Merlotte’s New Year’s Eve party, finds Eric running for his life with bare chest and feet. He has a forlorn look, an expression Sookie has never seen in the confident Eric. Eric does not recognize her, he knows he is a vampire, but he does not know who he is. Sookie takes him to her home, washes his feet and calls Fangtasia to let Pam know that she has found Eric. The next night, Pam and Chow come to her house and explain to her that several nights ago a group of witches arrived in Shreveport. Pam explains to Sookie the true nature of witches revealing that real witches can do plenty of bad things to vampires because witches control magical forces. This group seems to be more powerful than other witches and they either want to take over Eric's businesses or make Eric pay them money to leave him alone. The leader, Hallow, and her brother threatened Eric that they would curse him by turning Fangtasia's alcoholic drinks bad, and cause patrons to trip over the dance floor and sue them, which would badly affect Fangtasia’s revenues. Pam tells Sookie that a witch had come with a message from Hallow saying that Hallow lusted for Eric and asked him if he would entertain her for seven nights, she would only demand a fifth of his business, rather than half. Eric had refused and suddenly vanished from the office where they were discussing this offer. Eric says he does not remember anything and that he was born the moment he was running down the road. Pam and Chow asked Sookie to keep Eric safe while they solve the problem with the witches. Later Sookie learns through Holly Clearly (another waitress at Merlotte's) that this coven of witches have a lot of power that they are willing to use for evil, that they drink vampire blood and that they are werewolves as well. Holly also tells Sookie that this new coven has called all local witches and Wiccans to join them. Furthermore, Sookie learns that her brother, Jason, is missing and starts looking for him. Sookie informs Alcide Herveaux of the existence of this werewolves-witch coven in Shreveport and heads to Hotshot to speak to Crystal Norris (a were-panther) as she was the last person Jason was seen with.
Throughout all these chaotic events, Sookie and amnesiac Eric’s relationship grows, and they begin a sexual affair. Sookie is physically and emotionally attracted to this gentle and caring Eric. Sookie is happy to be with Eric, a man who has told her she was beautiful, and who had not only given her sexual pleasures, but also had held her and laughed with her. He starts calling her “lover” and they admit to each other that they have feelings towards one another. This Eric even offers to Sookie that he will stay with her forever, to work and help her, and he tells her that she will never be poor.
The novel reaches its climax when the Shreveport pack, the Area Five’s vampires and the local Wiccans fight together against Hallow and her coven. The coven is defeated and Hallow is kept alive so she could un-hex Eric’s memory loss, and Pam kills her afterwards. But before Hallow can reverse the curse on Eric he and Sookie go back to her house to find Debbie Pelt waiting with a gun. Eric takes the bullet for Sookie who then kills Debbie. Eric discards her body once he has recovered from the gunshot wound. When Eric gets his memory back, he has no recollection of his time with Sookie.
Eventually, Sookie, Sam and Calvin Norris discover that Felton Norris (Calvin and Felton are both werepanthers from Hotshot) was keeping Jason captive because Felton is in love with Crystal and did not want to see Crystal with Jason. Felton has bitten Jason several times and Sookie is afraid that her brother will turn to a werepanther in the next full moon. Calvin decides to punish Felton and it is implied that Felton is killed.

Sookie's genealogy as seen in True Blood S3 ep 2

What the hell ? How wrong could this stupid chart be ...???

This kind of ticks me off ( unless it's on purpose incorrect) because they are obviously setting up the reason for Bill being in Bon Temps, Sookie's unusual sparkly power, Sophie Anne's relationship with Hadley and  and we understand way before we see them in the books we will meet Hunter and Cousin Claudine in this season of True Blood.

The information in this is just incorrect even according to True Blood 

Problem #1 : Earl is not married to a Stackhouse, Earl's wife is Gran, who was Adele Hale. ( in a wider shot you can see Hale)
#2  Hadley's last name is NOT Stackhouse it's Delahoussaye in books
#3  Hunter's last name is also not Stackhouse it's Savoy

** of course Sookie's mother's last name and maternal grandparents are from True Blood and not found in the books

My genealogy work is found here
** I have never updated the Brigant fae familes since the last books

A very special True Blood vampire Nazi dinner party

Meredith, Team Talk Blood Radio member extraordinaire's review of Ep2

The second episode of True Blood's third season was pretty heavy. Lots and lots of plot lines and new characters almost drowned the special Nazi vampire reveal. Almost, but not quite. Spoilers ahead.

Whew, this episode had a ton of junk in it. All of it was delightfully insane, but it was damn near impossible to keep up with. Thankfully, no matter how crazy things got, Eric's hungry vampire libido found a way to cut through the bullshit and hit you right where it matters most. In your crotch.

Pro: Some news: True Blood was renewed for a fourth season! Thank goodness our lives will all continue to have meaning.

Pro: Right where we left off from last week, Bill is ripping off the ears of werewolves with his teeth! Ah, Bill you maniac, you.

Meet True Blood‘s Vampire King of Mississippi

Interesting that the "King" is getting so much attention, did no one notice " Queen " Sophie Anne last year ? Maybe the importance of the Vampire hierarchy is just sinking in ...

Bon Temps is getting a taste of royalty this season on True Blood — or better yet, royalty is getting a taste of Bon Temps.
With the evil machinations of Maryann coming to a gruesome and goring end in the season 2 finale, the role of outright evildoer was left glaringly vacant.
Despite all the fang-flashing and glowering (mixed with a generous amount of carnal blood-sucking) they are prone to, the blood-lusters of Bon Temps can’t seem to shake that annoying habit called humanity.
In fact, Godric — the oldest and most powerful vampire that viewers had been introduced to — seemed to have come full circle, showing more compassion and understanding than most of the human characters and ultimately choosing to sacrifice himself in the name of human-vampire relations.
