True Blood Finale: A Look Back on… Villians

August 24, 2014

Who Would You Rate as the Best And Worst Villains from HBO’s True Blood?

Anna Camp stars as Sarah Newlin in HBO's True Blood Season 7With HBO’s True Blood fast coming to a close, I thought I’d rate the best and worst True Blood villains!

  1. BEST: Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp). Over and over again Sarah has plagued the show, always bringing her warped sense of religious righteousness along with her for the ride. She even outlasted her husband, Steve Newlin (Michael McMillian) – no easy feat since he became a vampire in the end. However, it is her tenaciousness and lack of whiny little spinelessness her husband possessed that has made her the top villain we love to hate so much.
  2. WORST: Mr Gus (Will Yun Lee). Mr. Gus had potential. Anyone who Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) and his progeny, Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) are happy to side with have got to have something going for them after all. However, no one is really sure – Mr. Gus included – if he is even a bad guy. Sure he has the Yakuza backing him up but there just hasn’t been enough plot development for us to really fear him.
  3. BEST: Russell Edgington (Denis O’Hare). The guy ripped out a newsreaders beating heart while they were reading the news. On TV. With millions of people watching. Did Russell care? Oh no, he did not.
  4. WORST: The Ifrit. Really HBO, a smoke monster? And now Bill (Stephen Moyer) is dreaming of Sookie (Anna Paquin) having babies that look suspiciously like mini-Ifrits. Oh HELL no!
  5. BEST: Rene Lenier (Michael Raymond-James) Also known as Drew Marshall. Back in Season 1 of True Blood there was a real murder mystery going on. And, for fans of Charlaine Harris’s books (on which True Blood is based), we all just sat back and watched and waited. We knew how shocked people would be when they worked out sexy Cajun Rene, hubby to waitress Arlene (Carrie Preston), was the one murdering cats and grandmothers alike.
  6. WORST: Bill/Billith (Stephen Moyer). So Bill Compton drank the blood of Lilith (Jessica Clarke) and became Billith. Still not really sure how he un-became Billith, but that’s okay. Maybe that’s the real reason his Hep-V is so virulent now?

So who are your best and worst True Blood villains ever? Let us know by commenting below!

True Blood Finale: A Look Back on… The Sex Scenes

August 24, 2014

What Would You Rate as the Best and Worst Sex Scenes in HBO’s True Blood?

Ginger (Tara Buck) and Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) get intimate in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 9 (entitled 'Love is to Die')It’s hard to pick just a few stand out sex scenes in HBO’s True Blood – considering just how many have been dished up to us over the last seven years. But, after much research, here’s my top six list:

  1. BEST: Ginger (Tara Buck) and Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) finally get it on atop Eric’s throne in Fangtasia. Yep, I really didn’t think this hook up in Season 7 would be as thoroughly entertaining as it turned out to be. I’m not sure if it was Ginger’s undeniable glee, or the fact that she is just so damn excited that she is over and done with in a matter of seconds or if it’s because it was very obviously a nod to the whole vampire fangirldom out there.
  2. WORST: Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) and Lorena Krasiki (Mariana Klaveno) get bendy in Season 3. This one was just plain weird. And it made me want to throw up in my mouth just a little. Even just thinking about Bill twisting Lorena’s head all the way round as I am typing now is making me nauseous.
  3. BEST: Jessica Hamby (Deborah Ann Woll) goes to visit Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) in her red riding outfit. Yeah, I’m pretty sure there was a spike in red riding hood capes in 2012 after Jessica wore hers in Season 5.
  4. WORST: Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) claws his way out of the grave to have sex with Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin). I am still surprised Sookie didn’t need hospitalization after that romp. All that dirt, and in all the wrong places…
  5. BEST: Jason Stackhouse has a sex dream about Eric Northman – while he’s in church! Yep, I know after six months the effects of vampire blood on a human has probably worn off, but I’m glad to over look that for the fact that these two hooked up in Season 7.
  6. WORST: Bon Temps has an orgy. Thank you very much Maryann Forrester (Michelle Forbes) for coming to Bon Temps in Season 2 and making me see things that I cannot unsee. Although, on a flip side to this one, we did get a hilarious scene with Jason posing as ‘the god who came’…

Even Stephen Moyer Was Surprised Bill Said No to a Hep-V Cure!

August 24, 2014

Will Bill Die in the True Blood Season 7 Finale?

Stephen Moyer stars as Bill Compton, the latest Hep-V victim, from HBO's True Blood Season 7In Episode 9 (entitled Love is to Die) of HBO’s True Blood, many fans were shocked to discover that even though Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) had been doing her very best to find a cure for Bill Compton’s (Stephen Moyer) accelerated dose of Hep-V, he said no when the antidote was finally found inside the blood of Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp). It turns out even Stephen Moyer was a bit confused as to Bill’s decision:

I had a slight issue with it, because I couldn’t understand why he would go to the storeroom to Fangtasia and then say no. Ultimately, he goes because he wants to do right by Sookie. His decision to not turn around then and there is his going along with what Sookie has tried to make happen, and it’s really only when he’s right there that he thinks, ‘no.’

But where will this leave Bill leading into the final episode of HBO’s True Blood ever? Will Bill finally meet the true death? Stephen has this to say about Episode 10 (entitled Thank You):

At the end of [episode] nine, he has called Sookie and had the conversation with Eric, Eric’s gone back, and he knows that he’s going to talk to her. He’s going to see her, because she deserves it and is owed it, to know what’s been going on for him and why he is doing what he’s doing. We sort of enter into the episode right there.

Right, so that’s as clear as mud now! However, there is also this last piecel of information:

One of the things that Anna and I said — we had a dinner with Bucky [showrunner Brian Buckner] a year ago, before we had started filming, when they were just conceiving of this year, and quite frankly sat down with him and said, “We do not need in any way need you guys to try to tie up the Bill-Sookie love knot. If you don’t feel like that’s part of the show, we absolutely don’t need for it to be that.” I had said, “If you want that, we both do. If you see the show as Alcide [Joe Manganiello] and Sookie, that would be totally cool by us. If you see it as Eric [Alexander Skarsgard] and Sookie, that would be absolutely cool.” I certainly didn’t want to play an obvious part. One of the things we’ve been good at is surprising the audience, not always giving them what they want or expect. So for me, it’s been interesting to sort of find that character again. He’s been so many things. I think he’s had the most difficult arc in many respects, trying to find that sustenance and feeling.

Well, your guess is now as good as mine as to where the end of True Blood is headed in the final hour. Let us know your theories by commenting below!

VIDEO: Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer Discuss the End of True Blood

August 19, 2014

Find out Why the Last Day of Filming True Blood Season 7 Was So Rushed!

Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer as Sookie and BillRecently husband and wife (and True Blood co-stars) Anna Paquin (Sookie Stackhouse) and Stephen Moyer (Bill Compton) caught up with Popcorn’s Peter Travers to discuss the end of HBO’s iconic vampire series. There are plenty of topics touched on in the two video interviews below, including:

  • Anna and Paquin meeting on the set of True Blood
  • How many sex scenes Stephen directed that included his wife Anna
  • What it’s like to raise twins
  • Dave the dog
  • Anna getting an Oscar at such a young age (for her work in the movie, The Piano) and her breathy acceptance speech
  • That last day on the set of True Blood Season 7

Finally, make sure you watch to the very end of the first video to find out which song Stephen Moyer sings to his wife at the end of the interview. (HINT: It has a True Blood connection).

In the second video, Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer discuss what they got to keep from the set of True Blood.

True Blood Season 7 Spoilers: Goodbyes, Weird Sex & Love Triangles

August 15, 2014

Could an Original Cast Member Die in Episode 9 of HBO’s True Blood ?

Tara Buck stars as Ginger in HBO's True Blood Season 7It seems Episode 9 (entitled Love is to Die) will say a final goodbye to yet another original cast member of HBO’s True Blood! But will they die? It seems the devil is in the fine print of what TVGuide had to say about the upcoming episode recently:

With only two episodes to go, there are a lot of narrative threads to tie up, including the issue of Bill [Compton]’s mortality. I will only say this: At least one original cast member will say goodbye for good this week. In possibly related news, a longstanding love triangle will be resolved and you’ll see one of the show’s weirdest — and funniest — sex scenes between a long-unrequited pair.

How interesting is that news? With the admission of a long term love triangle also being resolved, one could assume that with Bill’s (Stephen Moyer) death, Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) finally chooses Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard).  Consolation prize anyone? However, there is another love triangle going on at the moment – that of Hoyt Fortenberry (Jim Parrack), Jessica Hamby (Deborah Ann Woll) and Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten). Perhaps TVGuide are referring to that triangle instead? Maybe Jess and Hoyt get back together and Jessica decides to move to Alaska to be with him? After all, it doesn’t specifically say the cast member will die.

And what of that sex scene, huh? Who do we know on True Blood that is part of an ‘unrequited pair’? Could it be Sookie and Eric? Probably not, since they have been intimate before. But it sure doesn’t leave many other options. Perhaps Arlene (Carrie Preston) and Keith (Riley Smith)? Especially since TVLine had this spoiler to announce:

Not everyone will get a happy ending on True Blood… but I think it’s safe to say that Arlene and Keith will be among the lucky few. Though we’re not going to get another pool table scene, this Sunday’s episode does show the effect Arlene’s relationship with Keith is having on her. (Spoiler Alert: She’s a very happy woman.)

But they haven’t been an item for very long, and many wouldn’t even really consider them as such. Oh, hang on a minute – what about Ginger (Tara Buck) and Eric? Now that would potentially be hilarious and weird!

True Blood Season 7 Finale: Episode 10 Synopsis Revealed!

August 13, 2014

Who Makes it to Episode 10 (entitled Thank You)?

One Last Bite True Blood Season 7 promo posterWith only two more episodes left of HBO’s True Blood, fans are starting to worry at how all the loose ends will be tied up. Who will die? Who will live happily ever after? Who will Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) finally chose?

Well, we have the press release for the True Blood Season 7 finale! Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) makes it to at least the start of the episode, but it seems he is still suffering from his virulent dose of Hep-V – will he take the antidote or meet the true death? Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) makes a choice – hang on a minute didn’t he already do that in Episode 9? How many choices does Sam have to make? Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) and Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) also make it to Episode 10 (entitled Thank You) of True Blood. It seems they are not entirely comfortable with their relationship with Mr. Gus (Will Yun Lee) though – could one of these three die? And, finally, we come to an interesting little titbit: Andy Bellefleur (Chris Bauer) gets an unexpected inheritance. This one disturbs me, after all it wasn’t that long ago that Bill was seeking legal advice about his will. Could Andy be the benefactor of Bill’s estate? And, if that is the case, does Bill die?

You can make up your own mind on this synopsis and let us know your thoughts by commenting below!
