Jessica's loyalty and Authority's power tested in 2 True Blood clips

True Blood season five is all about power. The power of religion, fairies, politicians ... even wolves. And no one's become more full of himself than Lilith's "Chosen One," Bill. Next week both he and the Authority will catch heat for their dirty dealings.

HBO has released two clips from the upcoming episode, "Sunset." One features Bill and Jessica, who's a little uneasy about their new digs. Last week her maker summoned her to the Authority compound, where she was shocked to see Russell and Steve hanging out. She knows they're in cahoots and is worried about Jason's safety. Unfortunately, Bill is too delusional to notice or care.

Despite popular belief, the Authority don't own everyone. Their reckless behavior is finally catching up to them. Thanks to their public feedings and rampages, they've backed themselves into a corner. Now the humans have the upper hand.

It looks like they've got some explaining to do.

True Blood "Sunset" premieres Sunday, Aug. 19, at 9 p.m. on HBO.
