The bridge introduces another chord progression. We start out going to the C# minor (the relative minor of E major). Notice that we use the same approach as the chorus section by adding in some color notes to the chords.

The first couple of chord changes happen right on the beat, but then they soon become anticipated, and that creates some tension. Staying on the B7 chord for 3 bars also adds tension that's finally released by returning to the main riff.
