True Blood Season 4 spoilers- Jesus, Lafayette, witches, Sam, and Tommy

There is less than two months until the HBO season 4 premiere of True Blood begins. Season 3 left us with a lot of questions dealing with Tommy and Sam as well as Lafayette and Jesus' role for the next season. But, here is what has given us to tide us over.

How could someone appear to have been the victim of a vampire attack? Science, in time, came back with answers that may surprise you.Anemia
