‘Nobody Should be Safe’ Says True Blood Writer Raelle Tucker:
Fans of True Blood’s main character, Sookie Stackhouse (played by Anna Paquin), will be shocked to hear that the Bon Temps telepathic waitress nearly didn’t survive True Blood Season 5! If series writer, Raelle Tucker, had her way, she would have come to an untimely demise in order to shake things up for the vampire loving audience. Recently she told the audience at the Rio Film Festival:
In Season 5 I pitched to kill Sookie, I really did because I think nobody should be safe.
It’s always a fine line writers have to walk: that of keeping the audience happy, and shaking things up just enough so fans tune in for the next episode. Tucker went on explain that it is a writers job to kill of characters, yet, when asked how she feels when their intended audience is upset about character deaths, she had this to say:
It’s a good feeling if the audience is feeling upset when a character dies, that means we have done our job right.
Raelle was very thankful to be writing for television in a day and age such as this one. She was also very excited about the advent of viewing platforms such as NetFlix, Amazon and Hulu, but was most thankful to HBO, citing the studio and network for the long term success of True Blood. She summed up her thoughts on television in the digital age by saying:
It feels that the only limitation on television is what you can imagine, there is no boundaries of what you can say, what you can do.
Do you think Sookie should have died in Season 5? Let us know in the comments below.

Will Alcide and Sookie Become True Blood’s Faerie Tale Romance?:
The Season 6 Finale of True Blood flashed forward 6 months and showed a very happy and in love, Sookie(Anna Paquin) and Alcide(Joe Manganiello). Sookie has sworn off vampires(for maybe the 100th time) so we are sure that Sookie and Alcide will live happily ever after…NOT! Though Alcide is the suitor closest to a human that Sookie has fallen for in the 6 seasons(with the exception of Sam), it makes sense that the storyline would put these two together(since Sam is no longer available).
TVline.com got an exclusive interview with True Blood Show Runner, Brian Buckner and he dished on the Season 7 Alcide/Sookie Scoop!
“The show has flirted with a Sookie and Alcide romance for years. Why was now the right time to pull the trigger on that?
In a world where almost everybody is a creature of some kind, Alcide is the most human of all of our creatures. Now, that’s not to say that it was his most human season. We all felt the same thing that the audience was feeling, which was that Alcide needed to come back to center. So it was that as much as anything else. And it was also that Sookie’s going to put her money where her mouth is and say “no more vampires.” She got into it with Warlow without knowing he was a vampire, so she was trying. But this shows growth for Sookie. I mean, I suppose he’s a hunk, so at least she’s still getting her piece. [Laughs] He’s the most normal, most human, most down-to-earth of any of her suitors. To me, with Eric gone and off on his own story going forward, I think it’s a pretty obvious triangle we’re setting up between Bill and Sookie and Alcide.”
To see the entire interview check out the link below!
I only have two issue with the Sookie/Alcide love story…Didn’t Eric glamour Alcide into never touching Sookie? Wasn’t Sookie supposed to repulse Alcide? I may have missed the un-glamour moment…What do you think Truebies? Is there a contradiction here? Number two, I love the Eric/Sookie/Bill love triangle…not sure the Alcide/Sookie/Bill triangle is going to do it for me!

Where Does Bill Go From Here?:
True Blood’s Season 6 took Bill(Stephen Moyer) on a intense journey, as we saw the depth of his character continue to progress. He was the egomancial Billith, then the concerned Father, then the attempted Martyr, and by the finale we saw the side of Bill that we all fell in love with in Season 1. Billith is no more, and yet the experience will surely live in him and impact future choices he makes. But what can we expect from Season 7? TVline got the dirt with Show Runner Brian Buckner, where he finally had the opportunity to speak out after the Season 6 finale.
When Asked if “Season 7 would be a Reset of sorts for Bill” Brian responds:
“Absolutely. We don’t want Bill to be an a—hole. The question we’re going to be asking this coming season is: Can Bill be forgiven? Because he made his intentions clear. I think Bill doesn’t have a trick up his sleeve this time. I think he’s genuine. The real question is about forgiveness.”
I don’t think that Bill should be the only one headed on a pursuit of forgiveness, after all Faerie Princess Sookie Stackhouse(Anna Paquin) did try to stake him…
So Truebies what do you think? Will Bill get the forgiveness that he seeks in Season 7? Let us know in the comments below!

Will We See One More Death in the Finale?:
With the Season 6 Finale of True Blood less than a week away, there is the lingering possibility that the Season 6 major character death is still to come. Fans watched with awe and sadness in Episode 6, when the lovable and tormented Terry Bellefleur(Todd Lowe) set the wheels in motion to put an end to his tortured life. We knew almost immediately that Terry would be the “major” character death of Season 6. Episode 7 confirmed our feelings, and yet the death of Terry Bellefleur for some was a little anti-climatic. Yes Terry has been in the series since the beginning, but Terry? The major character death?
I would like to propose another twist that the major character death is still to come in the Season 6 Finale which aires next Sunday August 18 on HBO. The major character death could in fact be none other than Bon Temps favourite telepath, Sookie Stackhouse(Anna Paquin).
What we know:
1) Sookie has promised to become Warlow(Rob Kazinsky’s) faerie vampire bride, this can only be achieved with the “death” of Sookie. Sookie reconfirmed her promise to Warlow in Episode 9.
2) Sookie does not want to die and be buried next to her parents for all of eternity.
3) Sookie’s “death” would not mean the end of her time on the show True Blood, it would mark the beginning of a very interesting storyline.
It has been said in an interview that the finale brings “game changer” status to True Blood. Having Sookie become a vampire would definitely be a game changer, since we have spent the past 5 seasons listening to her say that she would never turn into a vampire…
So Truebies what do you think? Will Sookie go through with the faerie vampire wedding, marking the “real” major character death of the season?

Could You Imagine Sarah Newlin as Sookie?
While Anna Camp is thoroughly enjoying the return of her character, Sarah Newlin, to HBO’s True Blood Season 6, it seems she very nearly made it to the True Blood big time: Sookie Stackhouse (played by Anna Paquin).
With her big hair, southern hospitality and an aversion to vampires, Sarah has turned out to be the villain Truebies just love to hate. It’s a challenge she thoroughly enjoys too.
When you have the mean girl, you can’t just hate her. You’ve got to love to hate her. There’s a certain line you have to walk to play the mean girl. You obviously can’t be in on the joke, but you have to commit to it.
While Camp enjoys playing the nasty characters, True Blood’s first showrunner, Alan Ball, had a different idea. Originally, he had Anna Camp try out for the role of Sookie Stackhouse! It seems that Anna wasn’t so sure she’d fit the part. And once she saw Anna Paquin trying out for the role, she knew it wasn’t going to come to pass:
We passed each other in the hallway, and I was like, ‘Oh, Anna Paquin. She’s totally going to get this.’
While Anna Camp may have missed a golden opportunity at a long time role on True Blood, fans sure a happy with her portrayal of Sarah Newlin. While Sarah is the villain we all love to hate, it has come down entirely to the brilliant portrayal of the character by Anna Camp.
Do you think Anna Camp would make a better Sookie Stackhouse? Or, alternatively, could you imagine Anna Paquin as Sarah Newlin? Let us know in the comments below.

Does Glowing During Sex Result in Pregnancy?
In Episode 6, (entitled Don’t You Feel Me), of HBO’s True Blood Season 6, we got to see Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and her very special fairy lady parts get intimate with Ben/Warlow (Robert Kazinsky) while she was hiding him from Billith (Stephen Moyer) in Fairyland. With a rather ‘glowing’ end to the consummation, fans have been speculating that Sookie could now be pregnant, thanks to the same thing happening when Andy Bellefleur (Chris Bauer) and Maurella’s (Kristina Anapau) tryst ended this way.
If this is the case, than more questions than answers are raised:
- If Sookie is pregnant, would the baby be human, fae, vampire or a combination of the three?
- Does glowing really indicate conception, or is it just a sign they had a ‘happy ending’
- Would Billith stoop so low as to drain one of Sookie’s fairy babies if they turn out to be the same as Warlow?
- How many babies would Sookie have?
- Does this now mean that Warlow and Sookie are married?
Recently, Roberrt Kazinsky dropped a hint about that scene when asked about what Warlow can and can’t do, which has further fanned the rumors:
I can eat, I can cry, I can bleed, I can have children, I can walk in daylight. And that’s an interesting proposition for a show like this.
Well, now isn’t that an intriguing thing to say? It will be interesting to see if anything comes to fruition from Episode 6. While there was no hint of pregnancy mentioned in Episode 7, (entitled In the Evening), there is still plenty of time for things to occur with three more episodes of True Blood’s Season 6 left. Wouldn’t it make a fantastic cliffhanger?
You can view the entire interview with Robert Kazinsky here.
What do you think? Could Sookie Stackhouse be pregnant? Let us know why or why not by commenting below!

True Blood Season 6 Is Coming to a Close:
True Blood Season 6, Episode 9 Synopsis has been released. Episode 9 marks the 2nd last episode of Season 6. The battle between the humans and vampires will likely intensify even further in the upcoming episodes. Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) will be out for revenge for his sister Nora’s (Lucy Griffiths) death, which was at the hands of the humans.
Here’s What will Happen:
“A desperate Bill (Stephen Moyer) tries to ferry Warlow (Rob Kazinsky) away from the faerie plain, but Sookie (Anna Paquin) is having none of it. Meanwhile, Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) arrives at vamp camp, looking to inflict serious human damage. In Bon Temps, friends and family take emotional turns remembering a fallen neighbor. Bill feels the pull of Lilith’s (Jessica Clark) sirens”.
So Truebies do you think that Eric is going to get the revenge he is looking for, or will his return to vamp camp only to further secure his spot in the room where the vampires will meet the sun?
