Titled "Frenzy," this Sunday's (Aug. 30) "True Blood" is a big episode, so big it was written by series creator Alan Ball.

In addition, as "True Blood" fans know, this is the first appearance by Sophie-Anne, the Vampire Queen of Louisiana, played by Evan Rachel Wood.

The Vampire Queen isn't featured in this new HBO-presented clip from Sunday's episode, but we have a full gallery with four shots of Wood in all of her pale, blood-thirsty glory. 

Instead, the clip features Rutina Wesley's still-tweaking Tara, as well as Sookie and Lafayette. It isn't gory or sexy, but it's still pretty intense.
