‘Mr. Gus’ and ‘The Figure’ Will Shake Things Up:

Besides the obvious questions about our beloved characters whose lives were left hanging in the balance in the Season 6 finale, fans are now wondering who will be the new villains of Season 7.

Well, thanks to TVLine and E!Online, we have some news for you!

Besides the fact that Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) is still on the run and potentially returning to cause more havoc in the seventh and final season of True Blood, there are two new characters we now need to keep an eye on.

The Figure

Okay, now right off the bat, I getting a comic book feel to this character. Who is called ‘The Figure‘ anyway? Will he simply be hiding in the shadows and popping out occasionally to vaporize his victims? Does a character with a name like that even speak? Apparently he does:

He’s described as “scary, hulking, ugly, mean and crafty… like Leatherface or Jason Voorhees, but this guy talks.”

is how Michael Ausiello described this character.

To thicken the plot, it seems this character will appear in Episode 1 of Season 7 (entitled ‘Jesus Gonna Be Here‘, and directed by True Blood actor, Stephen Moyer). Considering this character has just had a casting call to appear in an episode which was reportedly filmed back in January 2014, it will be interesting to see how Season 7 will unfurl.

I also wonder if The Figure will have anything to do with the Sookie (Anna Paquin) and Tara (Rutina Wesley) flashback that is supposed to occur in this episode?

Mr. Gus

Next up we have Mr. Gus. According to E!Online, they can’t wait to see this guy show up in Season 7:

He’s a Japan native who has fully embraced the “everything’s bigger in Texas” way of living. The only thing bigger than his lavish, southern lifestyle? His quest for revenge, and trust us when we tell you, you do not want to cross him.

Now this sounds intriguing. I wonder who he has a vendetta against? There are so many choices. Who do you think he is going to exact revenge on? Let us know in the comments below!
