VIDEO: True Blood Season 7 – The Next Tantalizing Trailer!

May 17, 2014

Truebie Fans Get Another True Blood Tease from HBO:

Kristin Bauer van Straten stars as Pam in HBOs True Blood Season 7 promo trailer 1It wasn’t that long ago that we got to see the very first sneak peek of HBO’s True Blood Season 7! Now we need to hold onto our hats for the next wicked tease. This clip is interspliced with clips from the very start of True Blood as well as plenty of new stuff to pore over. Here’s the breakdown for you:

  • There is a distinct reference to the fact that ‘we can’t go back to the way things were’ – this might be a little unsettling to those fans that enjoyed the return of a quieter season with Season 6. Are things about to get overly crazy all over again?
  • Remember when Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) told Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) she was safe with him? Yeah, well right after we have a flashback of that, we get a flash of True Blood Season 7 – and it’s of people being ripped out of a car and and radio reports of a ‘bloodbath’ – are they implying Bill is deceiving Sookie again this year? Notably, there is footage to suggest this bloodbath may have occurred at the newly named Bellefleurs (formerly Merlotte’s) since there is a scene of the establishment at the very end and it doesn’t look good at all.
  • Next we find a flashback to Sookie’s gran – is this one of the characters from the past that will return in Season 7?
  • Wait – is that Sookie lying lifelessly on the ground???
  • Andy Bellefleur (Chris Bauer) is still not happy with Bill. It seems Jessica Hamby (Deborah Ann Woll) is trying to make amends though with her promising Adilyn (Bailey Noble) not to hurt her again.
  • OMG! There’s finally a flash of Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) – is she happy, sad, relieved, mad? You can’t really tell since it’s all the same to her. Speaking of, is that her standing in front of some flames…
  • Is that a katana?
  • And is Violet (Karolina Wydra) finally letting Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) ravish her?
  • Sookie is begging ‘No, No, No!‘ There is blood on her too – who is dying in her arms?
  • Is that a pit of dead people Sookie, Jason, Andy, Sam (Sam Trammell) and Alcide (Joe Manganiello) are standing over?
  • There is still no mention or sighting of Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) in this clip – or did I miss it?

Well, that’s a lot of consume in a minute and a half – why not watch the whole clip… over and over again, and then let me know what else I missed by commenting below!

SPOILER ALERT: Synopsis’ of True Blood Season 7 Leaked!

May 14, 2014

Episode 1 and 2 Show the Hunt for Eric Northman Continues:

HBO's True Blood - Promo PosterFans of HBO’s True Blood are eager for the return of its final season on June 22nd 2014. It seems, with all the promotional items already on offer, there is one person who is glaringly absent: Eric Northman (played by Alexander Skarsgard).

The last episode of Season 6 saw the viking vampire going up in flames. Since then we have heard nothing in relation to whether or not he survives this inferno, other than showrunner Brian Buckner assuring us that he will be back for True Blood Season 7 – although he did not elaborate in what form or capacity he will be returning.

Now SpoilerTV has leaked the synopsis’ for both Episode 1 and 2 of Season 7. You can view the details below:

SpoilerTV leaks information on HBO's True Blood Season 7, Episode 1 and 2

So few words, so much that can be taken from them!

We now have a couple of episode titles we didn’t previously have as well as confirmation that True Blood Season 7 will indeed pick up from where it ended in Season 6. However, the particularly juicy piece of information comes in the second episode when it appears we will see an episode dedicated to Pam (played by Kristin Bauer van Straten) searching for her maker, Eric Northman.

Will she find him?

Considering the first episode is committed to the attack by Hep V infected vampires (and probably we can assume this will directly involve plenty of air time spent at Bellefleurs), it would imply a certain amount of time passing. Add this to the fact that there was already a time jump from Eric bursting into flames and the attack by Hep V invected vamps, it is possible that someone else has already rescued Eric from his extreme suntan. Who could it be? And in what condition will he be in?

Season 7 of HBO’s True Blood Will Be a Dark Trip Down Memory Lane

May 10, 2014

Vampire Tara Will be Reliving the Past:

Rutina Wesley stars as Tara Thornton in HBOs True Blood Season 7Fans are beginning to anticipate what will be going down in the very last season of HBO’s True Blood. Besides wondering what will be the outcome of those zombie-like Hep V infected vampires, there is also much conjecture about Eric Northman’s (Alexander Skarsgard) fate – especially considering he is yet to show up in any of the True Blood Season 7 promo items.

But what of the other characters? How will their stories conclude in Season 7? Will everyone get closure?

For newly made vampire, Tara Thornton (Rutina Wesley), it seems there might be some sort of closure for her past for her with E!Online dropping this delicious spoiler recently:

Expect to see a major Tara-centric flashback in one of the final episodes of the season, one that will give us a look at her troubled childhood. In the trip down memory lane, viewers will see Joe, Tara’s scary, abusive drunk of a father, as well as a young Sookie and Lafayette.

Considering Tara’s born again mother, Lettie Mae (Adina Porter),proclaimed a renewed – and apparently unbiased – love for her daughter in the final episode of True Blood Season 6, it could be possible that dealing with her mommy issues might also bring up unresolved daddy issues.

Very First Photos of HBO’s True Blood Season 7!

May 9, 2014

Promo Stills from the Final Season of HBO’s True Blood Reveal Little:

True Blood Season 7 Promo Pic 1It’s that exciting time of year when HBO starts releasing all the delicious teasers in relation to the season return of True Blood! This year though it is both exciting and sad as this will be the very last time we get to squeal in excitement at the tasty morsels HBO are throwing our way.

While there are photos of all our faves: Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten), Tara Thornton (Rutina Wesley), Andy Bellefleur (Chris Bauer), Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell), Alcide Herveaux (Joe Manganiello) and Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer), there is nothing to show for those other faves whose lives hang in the Season 6 finale limbo. Since Brian Buckner confirmed that Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) will be appearing in True Blood Season 7, we have not seen a single glimmer of hope in any of the promotional ephemera released so far. The same thing can be said about Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten).

So, will they live or die in Season 7? And what of the others? What can we glean from the nine released pictures?

Only time will tell! You can view all the images below. Let us know your theories in the comments.

True Blood Season 7 Sees the Return of Past Characters?

May 9, 2014

Even Dead True Blood Characters May Get a Look In:

Group still of HBOs True Blood Season 7E!Online has revealed that HBO’s True Blood Season 7, besides being the very last season for the vampire show, may bring in some old characters – possibly even some we thought were long dead.

Showing an image of Russell Edgington (Denis O’Hare)E!Online reminds fans that sometimes dead just ain’t dead on True Blood! They also suggested that one cast member to return could be Todd Lowe (who played the recently deceased Terry Bellefleur). This seems entirely plausible considering the amount of flashbacks that are expected in Season 7. Also, when questioned in the video below, he neither confirmed or denied the return of his character.

But who else could we expect to see?

Maybe Steve Newlin (Michael MacMillian) will do a Russell Edgington and reappear to cause more havoc? Would someone really want to save Steve though?

How about Crystal Norris (Lindsay Pulsipher)? Remember her? She was a werepanther from Hotshot. Sure Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) escaped her clutches – but could she be back for more?

Or will we just get to see a variety of flashbacks during the course of the show’s final season? Which is nice, but not at all okay if HBO are just baiting us with this delicious piece of information. Would HBO be that cruel? Only time will tell, I guess!

Amelia Rose Blaire Promises an “Out of Control” Ending to True Blood

May 8, 2014

Willa Spills Her Guts as HBO’s Vampire Series Winds Up:

Amelia Rose Blaire stars as Willa Burrell in HBO's True Blood Season 6Recently, Zap2It.com scored an interview with True Blood newcomer, Amelia Rose Blaire (who plays baby vampire Willa Burrell). While she was quite vague about what she had to offer in what what will go down in HBO’s True Blood Season 7, there is still plenty of information to be gleaned from the interview. In a nutshell, this is what we can expect from Season 7 according to Amelia Rose Blaire:

  • The ending will be out of control.
  • Season 7 will pick up directly where it left off in Season 6 – so it looks like we will find out immediately what goes down at Bellefleurs with those Hep V infected vampires approaching.
  • There will be more boundary pushing:

…being the final season of True Blood — which is a show that always pushes the boundaries — I think anything can happen and everything will happen.

  • Season 7 will see a continuation of Brian Buckner’s vision of bringing the show back to being a story about the interaction between vampires and humans.
  • There is STILL no news on how Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) will return in Season 7, with Amelia keeping very tightlipped over his storyline.
  • Hep V vamps are certainly not zombies in Blaire’s opinion:

I mean, they’re definitely really creepy looking. Any time there’s actors playing the Hep-V characters on set, it just looks so scary because of all of the veins and everything and the way that they’ve made them up. But I don’t really know, because “zombies” for me implies dead in the brain. Like, that’s just not working and you’re kind of a walking body. I don’t think that the Hep V vamps, in my opinion, are like that.

Considering Amelia Rose Blaire admits to not yet seeing the final few episodes of True Blood Season 7, it can be expected that there are even more surprises in store!

Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

True Blood Season 7 premieres on June 22 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HBO.
