Will Alcide and Sookie Become True Blood’s Faerie Tale Romance?:

True Blood's Anna Paquin and Joe Manganiello as Sookie and Alcide

Credit: HBO.com

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!

True Blood Season 6: Two Episode 10 Teaser Videos!

August 15, 2013

Two New Clips Arrive to Tease us About The True Blood Season Finale:

Violet (Karolina Wydra) locks lips with Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) and then his sister, Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) in HBO's True Blood Season 6, Episode 20 Finale, entitled 'Radioactive'Here we have it, possibly the last couple of teaser videos for HBO’s True Blood Season 6! They are short and sweet and so deliciously tantalizing too.

In the first clip, entitled A Pleasant Surprise, we find Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and Alcide Herveaux (Joe Manganiello) sharing a pleasant walk together through the cemetery after Terry Bellefleur’s (Todd Lowe) funeral. Poor Sookie is worried about her brother, Jason (Ryan Kwanten) and Alcide is doing the right thing by reassuring her that Jason will be just fine.

Alcide’s depth of understanding makes Sookie take pause – has she just found a suitor that doesn’t want her dead first?

Ep. 70 Clip: A Pleasant Surprise

The second clip is called No Shrinking Violet and starts with Violet (Karolina Wydra) feeding from Jason Stackhouse. It seems Jason is feeling the attraction to Violet that she promised would happen. But – true to her word – Violet is going to make her conquest a hard earned feat.

But before they can discuss matters further – Sookie shows up!

It gets all threatening and fangy for a moment but then Jason convinces Violet that Sookie is indeed his sister and Violet responds by laying her lips on the Sookster!

Ep. 70 Clip: No Shrinking Violet

What do you think the outcome will be for the season finale of HBO’s True Blood Season 6? Let us know in the comments below.

VIDEO: True Blood Season 6 Episode 9 Teaser – ‘Scent of a Werewolf’

August 10, 2013

Terry Bellefleur’s Funeral Brings Bon Temps Together:

Joe Manganiello stars as Alcide Herveaux in HBO's True Blood Season 6, Episode 9, entitled 'Life Matters'In this video teaser of HBO’s True Blood Season 6, Episode 9 (entitled Life Matters), we find the inhabitants of Bon Temps coming together for Terry Bellefleur’s (Todd Lowe) funeral.

Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) arrives and still wearing that black dress she wore to Fairyland with Billith (Stephen Moyer). So she must make it back okay. I wonder how Billith and Warlow (Robert Kazinsky) fared though?

She does appear to be a little late to the funeral though and has to take a seat next to Jane Bodehouse (Patricia Bethune) and Maxine Fortenberry (Dale Raoul). Sookie isn’ t seated for long when Alcide Herveaux (Joe Manganiello) turns up, wanting to sit next to her. While Alcide impresses Jane and Maxine, Sookie isn’t as beguiled and announces she’s saving the seat next to her for her brother, Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten). But we all know Jason isn’t about to turn up any time soon!

So what do you think of this video teaser for HBO’s True Blood Season 6, Episode 9? Let us know your thoughts by commenting below.

True Blood’s Joe Manganiello is a Werewolf in Deep Water

July 31, 2013

Astra Awards, sharks at Manly, his Rugby team, the Balmain Tigers:

Joe Manganiello stars as Alcide Herveaux in HBO's True Blood Season 6, Episode 7, entitled 'In the Evening'

Best known for his role of werewolf Alcide Herveaux in HBO’s True Blood, Joe Manganiello has been visiting Australia’s shores promoting Season 6 of the hit series as he attended the Astra awards last week.

Not his first visit to Australia, he actually came out here in 2005 with the band Goldfinger, for whom he was a roadie. That 20 hour Australian stopover coincided with the Balmain Tigers winning the premiership that year and so the rugby passion began. Joe donned his beloved team’s, black, white and gold jersey at a match at Campbelltown on Monday night after meeting the team.

His girlfriend, model Bridget Peters, has been accompanying him on this trip and they dove for over an hour in the Manly Sea Life Sanctuary with a shiver of grey nurse sharks.

After Joe hit dry land again he declared it was,

“One of the most unbelievable experiences of my life.”

While appearing on Channel 10’s The Project, sexual insinuations and hose jokes aside, Joe was asked the tough questions. When asked if he’d had any interesting or crazy experiences with the fans, here’s what he had to say:

“I have really interesting fan encounters all the time…. [at Comic Con] My latest fan encounter where, we speak on a panel in front of about 5000 fans every year so, the roar is deafening when you walk out onto that stage….when the cheering kinda subsided, this one lone husky male voice, in the vein of Buffalo Bill from ‘Silence of the Lambs’ said ‘Joe, I love you” and I almost expected the follow up to be ‘put the lotion in the basket’… the deepest huskies male voice I’ve ever heard say I love you! ”

Talking about his time on Magic Mike he also shared the thing that was most requested was the fireman suit:

“I don’t understand it” he said.

Oh but Joe, we do…. It’s hot!

As a child he’d prayed to god to become a werewolf,  having been told by the nuns that if you prayed hard enough you got what you wanted. When he got the call for True Blood, it seemed that those prayers have been answered.

I know I speak for a lot of women here; ‘thank you’ to who ever answered those prayers!

True Blood Season 6 Episode 8 ‘Dead Meat’ Synopsis Released

July 28, 2013

Meet a New Character and a Dilemma for Sookie:

Robert Kazinsky (Ben Flynn) and Anna Paquin (Sookie Stackhouse) star in HBO's True Blood Season 6With the finale for HBO’s True Blood Season 6 approaching faster than a speeding train, fans are starting to wonder how Season 6 will end. With that in mind, we now have the synopsis for Episode 8, entitled Dead Meat, for you:

Sookie (Anna Paquin) faces a major dilemma in deciding whether to broker a deal between Warlow (Rob Kazinsky) and Bill (Stephen Moyer). Over in vamp camp, Jason (Ryan Kwanten) gets to know Violet (Karolina Wydra), while Sarah (Anna Camp) goes to extremes to keep Tru Blood flowing. Alcide (Joe Manganiello) makes a decision that will impact the futures of Nicole (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) and Sam (Sam Trammell).

Well, well, well, so much to ponder over for the next week or so until this episode screens.

Why is Sookie trying to broker a deal with Warlow and Bill? What has changed in her life for her to consider this? Who is Violet? Will she help or hinder Jason’s attempts at freeing the vampires he now cares about? If Eric knows that Tru Blood is infected with Hepatitis V, then why is it still in production? Why hasn’t Eric notified everyone? And, finally, how will Alcide screw up Sam and Nicole’s lives even further?

I guess we just have to wait to find out – but waiting sure does suck!

What do you think will happen this week in Episode 7, In the Evening, that will then impact what happens in Episode 8, Dead Meat? Let us know in the comments below.

VIDEO: True Blood Season 6 Episode 7 Sneak Peek: ‘Too Little Too Late’

July 25, 2013

Alcide Herveaux Chats to His Dad:

Joe Manganiello stars as Alcide Herveaux in HBO's True Blood Season 6, Episode 7, entitled 'In the Evening'There is a smorgasbord of teasers out there at the moment for HBO’s upcoming True Blood Season 6, Episode 7, entitled In the Evening.  in this clip, we find out a little bit more about the relationship between Alcide Herveaux (Joe Manganiello) and his dad (played by Robert Patrick).

There is also a suggestion right at the end that Alcide’s dad wants him to leave the pack life behind. Maybe that’s why Alcide has been so cranky in Season 6 – is pack life simply rubbing him the wrong way?

Changes for True Blood and Alcide: Joe Manganiello Tells All

July 23, 2013

The Plot Thickens for Joe Manganiello and Alcide Herveaux:

Joe Manganiello as Alcide Herveaux

If you were as excited as we were to hear that Alcide’s (Joe Manganiello) father Jackson Herveaux (Robert Patrick) was going to be a regular character on True Blood during Season 6, you probably also notice that we have yet to see much of him.

Manganiello spoke of this recently at Comic-Con, saying that he’s been off on his own this season and away from the rest of the regulars. There were, however, original plans for much more screen time between Alcide and his father:

“I haven’t really interacted with any of the series regulars … It’s kind of like my own little spin-off. There was more [with me and Robert Patrick], but they changed the storyline and [there’s now all this footage that is not a part of the show].”

The change might have occured due to the recent showrunner shuffle: Marc Hudis was the original showrunner of the season but was replaced halfway by Brian Buckner.

Even with all of the changes, the buff actor assured that the characters will come together by the end of the season.

How so? We’ll just have to tune in to HBO every Sunday at 9 p.m. to see!

A Tragedy Close to Home?

Sam Trammell as Sam Merlotte in HBO's True BloodMany fans are looking forward to Episode 6, entitled Don’t You Feel Me?, from HBO’s True Blood Season 6 with great trepidation.

True Blood Season 6: Who Will Die? Top 10 List

July 17, 2013

TrueBloodNet’s Season 6 Predictions:

HBO's True Blood: Season 6 promo posterThe hottest question in relation to HBO’s True Blood Season 6 at the moment is ‘Who’s going to die?’ This is quite often followed up with ‘When are they going to die?’ Considering the fact that Episode 7 was originally titled The Funeral, many people are predicting we will lose someone dear to the True Blood family this Sunday (July 21st).

There have been plenty of rumors – so what’s fact and what’s fiction? Certainly nothing can be set in stone as fact when it comes to the rumor mill, but there can be some educated assumptions that can be made based on what has been said by the cast and crew of True Blood surrounding this imminent death.

While Brian Buckner confirmed before the season started that there will be the death of a major character in True Blood Season 6, it is still open to debate over how major that character will be. Lauren Bowles (who plays Holly Cleary) has stated that it will NOT be Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), Chris Bauer let it slip on premiere night that it could possibly be a human that bites the dust.

These two snippets of information have not been confirmed or denied by HBO, yet the fact that they came from True Blood cast, suggest there may be some truth to it. Although, once again, based on that assumption, Rutger Hauer should be Warlow and not Ben (Robert Kazinsky)!

Also, it’s probably safe to assume that Ben, Niall (Rutger Hauer), Governor Burrell (Arliss Howard) or any of the cast that joined True Blood in Season 6, will not die since these characters cannot be considered major characters yet. And in the case of Governor Burrell, he’s the bad guy and will, no doubt, die anyway. So, to be safe, my list will be broken up into two lists: Vampires vs. Humans

Top 5: Humans

Nelsan Ellis stars as Lafayette Reynolds in HBO's True Blood Season 6

  1. Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis).  Poor Lafayette ended Episode 5, F*ck the Pain Away, in quite a predicament, having been possessed by the ghost of Sookie’s dead father, and attempting to finish off drowning Sookie rather than have her marry Ben. I can certainly see either Ben or Bill coming to Sookie’s aid and killing Lafayette before realising he’d been possessed.
  2. Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten). Ryan Kwanten was one of the first people to speak out about the upcoming death in True Blood Season 6 – and this ALWAYS makes me twitchy! This is also why Joe Manganiello, Todd Lowe and Chris Bauer make the list. Fans tend to connect emotionally to the actors who speak about such big announcements  – was that HBO’s intention when allowing these actors to talk about it?  Add into the mix the fact that Anna Camp (Sarah Newlin) recently commented that she’s “had sad read-throughs” and the only person I could imagine she would have feelings for is Jason. Jason’s decision to join the LAVTF is certainly a way to put his life at risk as well.
  3. Ginger (Tara Buck). While not really considered a major character, Ginger has been with us through the entire True Blood journey and many would argue has quite a cult following, being affectionately being refered to as ‘Ginger the Screamer’. Currently, her location is unknown to the audience after she tried delaying tactics for Eric so he could escape the Governor’s clutches. While Ginger has made the list, I would be disappointed if HBO took the soft option of killing off a recurring character rather than a major one.Chris Bauer stars as Andy Bellefleur in HBO True Blood Season 6
  4. Andy Bellefleur (Chris Bauer). We’ve seen a bit of Andy this season haven’t we? He’s got quite a storyline happening and people seem to be interviewing him left right and center. Are HBO pushing Chris Bauer into the spotlight to make us care more about his character before killing him off? Oh, and wasn’t his obligation to Maurella to raise at least TWO fairy children to adulthood? While technically he did, the fae kingdom (if there is anyone left) may see differently.
  5. Terry Bellefleur (Todd Lowe). So Terry wants to die – seems like a good way to kill off a character. Especially if something happens to him that makes him want to live but is then unable to contact his hitman, Justin…

Top 5: Vampires/Supernaturals

  1. Tara Thornton (Rutina Wesley). So lots of people have voiced their opinion over the ages about how annoying they find Tara. This would be another soft option (in my opinion), but certainly a plausible one considering that Tara is now stuck in Vamp Camp and determined to save her maker – will she pay the ultimate price for love?Stephen Moyer stars as Bill/Billith in HBO's True Blood Season 6
  2. Bill/Billith (Stephen Moyer). Once again we are presented with a character that draws polar opinions and now that Bill has become Bilith, public opinion appears to be more anti-Bill than ever. Also, Billith is also now considered one of the baddies, and we all know what happens to the bad guys in True Blood
  3. Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten). So Pam and Eric are trapped in a room – Gladiator-style – with nothing but a couple of stakes to set them free. Could Pam finally meet the true death?
  4. Alcide Herveaux (Joe Manganiello)In True Blood Season 6, Alcide has gone from the kind but girlfriend-challenged werewolf to nasty alpha-male over night. Many fans are either hating him for changing so dramatically or starting to worry because it is now putting him very close to the ‘bad guy’ category. Many fans are also finding the werewolf/shifter storyline quite boring this year, which could put the life of Alcide in jeopardy.
  5. Alexander Skarsgard stars as Eric Northman in HBO's True Blood Season 6Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard). With all the rumors flying earlier in the year about Eric being the major character death, I have added his name to the list, but I really doubt HBO would go the full Monty and kill off their most enthusiastic fan base. Or would they? Afterall, this is the same network that bought us Game of Thrones and the gut-wrenching red wedding episode…

So, what do you think Truebies? Who do you think will meet their maker in True Blood’s Season 6? Let us know in the comments below!
