Last night a new promo for HBO’s “True Blood” aired for the upcoming third season. We’ve already revealed two videos which feature Eric Northman and Sam Merlotte, now the latest ad highlights Rutina Wesley as Tara. The lives of the characters on this show are no cakewalk and in the latest promo it looks like Tara gets attacked!

Just to be clear, Tara is nobodies victim. She’s one of, if not THE strongest female character on the show. Granted last year she was taken for a ride because psycho Maryann had her under some sort of spell, but besides that she’s usually all business. In the latest behind the scenes promo it looks like someone is getting in Tara’s face and she doesn’t like it.

To be fair, the following scene does leave a lot to the imagination. It appears that a man is attempting to bite her and Tara is terrified. We barely see his face but the actor looks like James Frain, one of the co-stars from the Showtime series “The Tudors.” We heard rumors that he would be brought on as a love interest for Tara, and this might be the beginning of that relationship. The character’s name is Franklin Mott and the two are supposed to share a crazy bond with one another. Ooooh, I can’t wait!
