True Blood is coming to a deadly conclusion. After months of Authority-fueled chaos, it's time to pay the piper. Sunday's episode will merge all the storylines into one explosive finale. Bring your tissues, because not everyone's going to make it.

According to creator Alan Ball, True Blood's season finale will be filled with death. He told TVLine, "There's a big body count. Probably more than any episode we've ever had."

That morbid preview could explain the photo above of an emotional Sookie and Eric. Sookie's shedding a tear, while Eric's in shock and covered in blood. So the question is, "Who met their maker?"

HBO also released a clip from the episode that features Sam in a tight spot. After being captured by Authority security, the shapeshifter finds himself eye to eye with Bill. Unfortunately, he has no idea how much Bill's changed since their last meeting.

Do you think Bill will take a bite out of Sam?

True Blood airs Sunday at 9 p.m. on HBO.
