True Blood Season 7: Get Ready For a Southern-Off Between Pam & Sarah

August 6, 2014

Anna Camp Tells Fans to Prepare For Battle – Southern-Style:

Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) and Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) are set for a Southern-off in HBO's True Blood Season 7With the net quickly closing in on Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp), it appears Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard), Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) and Mr. Gus (Will Yun Lee) may have their hands firmly on Sarah in Sunday’s upcoming Episode of HBO’s True Blood. But don’t expect Sarah to go down without a fight in Episode 8 (entitled Almost Home) – even if she is claiming to be the Messiah. It seems there will be an old-style battle of the Southern wits before Sarah possibly meets her maker. According to Anna Camp, Sarah and Pam will have a run in some time soon:

Pam hates my guts, and she is definitely not holding any of that back. She is one of the actresses that I have always wanted to have scenes with on this show. You see these two Southern belles who are pretty girly, and we have some great one-liners. There’s a handful of scenes that I’m really excited about seeing because she’s awesome to work with.

Who can’t wait for this clash? But will Sarah finally meet with a grisly end after a Hep-V antidote is synthesized? No one is spilling the beans on that Season 7 secret, but it does look likely with Anna Camp having said Sarah ‘definitely deserves to die‘ in several interviews.

True Blood’s Bailey Noble on Playing Adilyn:

August 5, 2014

Adilyn the Fairy Doesn’t Have the Life Skills Yet to be Holding Grudges!

Bailey Noble stars as Adilyn the fairy in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 7 (entitled 'May Be the Last Time')It’s a tough break to be a fairy born in Bon Temps these days. Firstly Adilyn had three other siblings to contend with, then they got attacked by a hungry vampire and most of them get drained (save poor Adilyn). Afterwards,  she had to contend with an overprotective daddy, a childhood that spanned a matter of months and a naivety that only a fairy can obtain. Add into the mix the fact that the boy you have fallen in love with is your soon to be step brother and the vampire you once trusted has turned on you! For actor Bailey Noble, it’s all in a days work playing True Blood newcomer Adilyn. But is is a job she will surely miss:

 For me, I feel like I haven’t had enough time with the cast and crew. This is the longest time I’ve ever been part of a cast, and it hasn’t totally hit me yet because we always had big breaks in between shooting, so I still feel like I’m going to get a call sheet and go back into work next week.

It is Adilyn’s innocence that has made the role so fun, according to Bailey. Each time she opens a script, she gets to look at her character and decide just how to play the part from her view point. She loves the fact that, despite all the troubles she’s had in such a short life span, she can still love life with such complete totality. For Bailey, Adilyn’s innocence brings a whole new perspective to the show. For example, when Adilyn forgives Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) for killing her sisters:

Obviously what happened with my sisters was a huge deal, but my heart went out to Jessica when I heard about Tara’s death. She’s just standing in my front yard, all alone, and I know what it’s like to lose somebody, so I think that we should be together. I see how much Jessica’s loss is hurting her and I know how much my loss hurt me, so I don’t want anybody else to feel that pain. Also, Adilyn doesn’t have many friends, so Jessica is the only possibility. After all, she’s still very young and forgiving… I don’t have the life skills to be holding grudges yet. [Laughs.]

But what of being a fairy in Bon Temps? Does Bailey think Adilyn will have as hard a time as Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) has?

I think she’ll have an easier time than Sookie, but I also think that as she gets older, she might still follow in some of Sookie’s footsteps. Part of the magic of being a faerie is attracting those kinds of dark things, that’s what makes it fun.

True Blood Writer Craig Chester Discusses Episode 7

August 5, 2014

May Be the Last Time Writer Tells When it Truly Felt Like the Show Was Ending:

Chris Bauer stars as Andy Bellefleur in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 7 (entitled 'May Be the Last Time')For fans of True Blood, finding out the news last year that HBO had not renewed their popular vampire series, was probably when they felt like the show was truly ending. Then, when the theme song played for the first time on Season 7, once more it felt like the end all over again. But what about the crew? When did they feel like the show had come to an end? For Episode 7 (entitled May Be the Last Time) writer, Craig Chester, and show runner, Brian Buckner, they pointed out a particular moment in Episode 7 as their defining ‘end’ moment. It involved Andy (Chris Bauer) crying as he looked over a lake in Oklahoma:

When Bucky and I saw that scene for the first time edited, Bucky turned to me and said, “You know, for the first time in the series, I got the feeling that it’s ending.” There was something about that scene that hit both of us in a way that this is ending. Arlene and Andy started this series off as comic relief. And what I loved about writing this episode is it’s the episode where they both kind of come full circle as fully fleshed-out three-dimensional human beings… When we shot that scene, everybody was so torn up watching Chris, because it’s Andy. Andy’s crying. Oh my god, it’s really bad if Andy’s crying. And her reaction to that is our reaction to that—the first time you see your man cry, it’s a big deal. That’s one of my favorite scenes in this season because it’s very real. It’s what we’re going for this season—we’re getting into the characters. There’s a lot of love for these characters, and it’s really important that that come across because we’re saying goodbye to them. I think that’s why Bucky said, “I feel like that’s the first time I realized this show is ending.”

For Episode 7, there was plenty for Craig Chester to discuss, including why they decided to revisit Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) running through the cemetery in a white dress:

A lot of discussion went into that scene, which I think some people have been waiting for for a very long time and others have maybe not. [Laughs] We did shoot, shot-for-shot, Sookie running to Bill’s house in a white dress, so it is literally a callback to episode six of season 1. But one of the things that we talked about is that these are two very different people now that are reconnecting, who obviously have this deep love for each other. It’s loaded with this history between them. That was something that Anna [Paquin] and Stephen [Moyer] beautifully conveyed, having played these characters for so long and knowing exactly where they’re at as they rekindle their feelings for each other.

This scene, which leads to the romantic pairing of Sookie and Bill once more, had left many Team Bill fans very uneasy about the conclusion of True Blood. Episode 7 seems a tad bit early in the final season to get Sookie and Bill back together – especially for a permanent pairing. There is even speculation that Bill really will die of Hep-V now. Craig remained tight-lipped over this possibility, instead pointing out that they remained vested in that relationship and were committed to exploring the complexities of it. What ever that may mean.

There is plenty more Craig Chester had to say about Episode 7 of HBO’s True Blood Season 7 and you can view his interview with EW in it’s entirety by clicking here.

True Blood Season 7: Episode 9 Synopsis Released

August 5, 2014

Episode #79: “Love Is to Die”:

Anna Paquin stars as Sookie Stackhouse in HBO's True Blood Season 7With only three short episodes left, here’s what we know of the penultimate episode of HBO’s True Blood. Episode 9 is entitled Love is to Die and the synopsis reads:

Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) retreats in confusion. Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) makes a choice. Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) exercises uncharacteristic restraint, while Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) faces a dilemma after being caught in a lie.

Written by Brian Buckner; directed by Howard Deutch.

It seems Sookie may get rejected by someone. Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) perhaps? Finally Sam decides whether to stay in Bon Temps as the Mayor of Crazy or leave with the mother of his unborn child, Nicole (Jurnee Smollett-Bell). Jason seems to be nipping that “just because Hoyt (Jim Parrack) has it, doesn’t mean I should too” trait right in the bud. And, as for Eric getting caught in a lie – your guess is as good as mine as to which lie that might be!

EXCLUSIVE Interview with Dr. Ludwig’s Marcia DeRousse!

August 4, 2014

Marcia DeRousse Pops Into TrueBloodNet to Answer Some Questions:

Dr Ludwig (Marcia DeRousse) and Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) star in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 7 (entitled 'May Be the Last Time')For fans of HBO’s True Blood, Season 7 has been the season for cameo appearances. It seems the HBO writers are eager to bring back as many fan favorites as is feasibly possible. In just the last episode alone we welcomed back Hoyt Fortenberry (Jim Parrack) and the pocket rocket that is Dr. Ludwig!

And for fans of Dr. L, the actress who plays the miracle worker to the supernatural, Marcia DeRousse, her latest guest appearance was just as unexpected as it was to the fans:

I was shocked, more than anything else. I thought Dr. Ludwig had been put away for good. So, after the shock, I was also excited. I was just happy every time Dr. L was brought in. This time was the most fun, but I loved all three stories she was in.

she said when she stopped in for a quick chat with TrueBloodNet.

In Episode 7 (entitled May Be the Last Time) we find Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) desperate to find a cure for Bill Compton’s (Stephen Moyer) accelerated dose of Hep-V. Considering Sookie suspects her fae blood may be the reason Bill’s strain is so virulent, she calls in resident doctor to the supernatural, Dr. Ludwig, to try and sort it all out. While Dr. L leaves in a hurry once she realizes Sookie is related to dwarf killer, Niall Brigant (Rutger Hauer), is it possible Dr. Ludwig could have helped cure Bill, if she were given enough time? According to Marcia:

I think she THINKS she could cure Hep-V, but as to whether she actually could – well, who knows? She is a pretty kick-ass character, but maybe not the actual best doctor! (Please don’t tell her I said that! HA!)

Don’t worry, your secret is safe with us Marcia ;-)

While she may be the best doctor out there (after all, even Sookie thinks her bedside manner sucks), for many Truebies, there was absolute excitement over her return to Season 7. And, after reading all the recaps and reviews on Episode 7, there was barely a bad word to be said about the return of Dr. Ludwig – other than her lack of airtime.  What does Marcia think is the widespread appeal of Dr. Ludwig?

You know I don’t now, except she is so crotchety and blunt perhaps people wish they could be more like her – and get away with it! LOL Whatever the reason is, I am so grateful and love everyone back one hundred fold.

I think Marcia may be onto something there. Personally, I always loved her honesty and genuine comic relief in situations (this season especially) that would normally be quite dire. Speaking of drastic situations, Dr. Ludwig has had to deal with a maenad, Pam’s (Kristin Bauer van Straten) rotting face and, now, Bill’s grotesque Hep-V veins over her time on True Blood. While many supernatural creatures have also appeared over the seven seasons, which creature would Marcia have liked to see explored in True Blood, if we were given another season?

Hmmmm… might have been fun for a poltergeist to show up – a true trouble maker – that would need to have Dr. Ludwig intervene to calm those pesky tendencies down! And since my dear friend, Zelda Rubinstein starred in the Poltergeist movies, I feel it might have been fitting.

That sure would have been awesome. I could just imagine a poltergeist showing up and disturbing all the patrons at Merlotte’s, for example. Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) could have even helped Dr. Ludwig with that dilemma!

Now that True Blood is meeting it’s true death, what does Marcia have in store for her fans down the track?

Several things in the works – all of them cool – and need lots of energy and good thoughts and prayers from all of you so they come to be! Of course, I always stay busy with Spiritual work.

So we need to keep our fingers crossed and let the energies flow so we can see Marcia DeRousse back on our screens as soon as possible.

Finally, I had one last question to ask Marcia. One that has been asked of every cast member recently: Did she take (or receive) any True Blood memento’s? Also, if she could have taken anything from the set, what would it have been?

LOL! I did not take anything from the set- except the hair bands and pins left in my hair. What I got from True Blood was a group of the most wonderful people in the world – on the set, and as fans and friends. Thank you so much. I love all of you!

And we love you too Marcia DeRousse! Thank you so much for taking the time to sit down and chat with us here at TrueBloodNet. Also, thanks for bringing such a wonderful and much loved character to life on True Blood.

True Blood Quickie: True Blood Season 7 Episode 7 “May Be the Last Time” Recap

August 4, 2014

Here’s what went down in Episode 7 (entitled May Be the Last Time and previously known as One Last Time) of HBO’s True Blood Season 7:

  • Niall Brigant (Rutger Hauer) and Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) catch up in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 7 (entitled 'May Be the Last Time')Amber (Natalie Hall) is getting interrogated by Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard), Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) and Mr. Gus (Will Yun Lee) as to the whereabouts of her sister, Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp). This doesn’t go too well when Eric sees Sarah’s face instead of Amber’s and stakes her. But that’s okay because apparently Big Brother is way more advanced than we thought and Mr. Gus uses satellite navigation to track Sarah down as she is having a meltdown at the now abandoned Light of Day Institute. Seems she is hallucinating remembering her past and Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) is getting his nasty on and telling her she will be dead by dawn. Sarah then has to battle her other hallucinations: Steve Newlin (Michael McMillian), the guru and the severed head of the Governor (Arliss Howard). There is a battle raging for Sarah’s soul – or so she thinks. She tells them though – since she is the antidote now – she is the new Messiah! But not for long, since Eric, Pam and Mr. Gus have now arrived…
  • Andy (Chris Bauer) and Holly (Lauren Bowles) are still looking for Adilyn (Bailey Noble) and Wade (Noah Matthews). They’re not at Fort Bellefleur and they are certainly not at Holly’s ex’s lake house in Oklahoma. That’s because Violet (Karolina Wydra) has spirited them away to her 50 Shades playroom extravagant mansion. When Violet goes to sleep, Adilyn and Wade both hand in their V cards. Which is nice, because once Violet wakes up, it’s time for her to throw Wade across the room and chain up Adilyn. Now we know why Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) asked Adilyn to taste her blood all those episodes ago…
  • Jessica, Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) are all being miserable at Bill’s house. Sookie still thinks she can find a cure, but Jess doesn’t seem to think so. While the vampires sleep, Sookie gets to work. Since she thinks it’s her fae blood that is accelerating Bill’s Hep-V status, she calls in the big guns – or one that comes in a small package and a mighty big Hummer anyway. Enter Dr. Ludwig (Marcia DeRousse)! Dr. L is just as adorably cranky as the last time we saw her but her only advice is that maybe Bill’s case is accelerated by Sookie’s faeness, but not likely as she knows of someone who has been infected by a full fairy and their case is not as extreme as Bill’s. Just as we are settling into Dr. L’s lack of bedside manner, Sookie drops her fairy lineage and Dr. Ludwig leaves in a hurry. It seems Niall Brigant (Rutger Hauer) may, or may not have (but definitely has) come from a line of dwarf killers.
  • Speaking of, Sookie then summons Niall who is even less helpful than we thought the fairy might be. Or is he? It seems that maybe Sookie should just forgive herself for giving Bill Hep-V and get on with the miracle of life. *insert Bill flashback to the birth of his first child here* Has HBO been trying to tell us in all these flashbacks that Caroline (Shannon Lucio) is Bill’s one true love? This doesn’t really sit too well with Sookie and she asks Niall to leave after that.
  • Arlene (Carrie Preston) finally gets her sex dream with her vampire savior, Keith (Riley Smith). Lucky for him it’s only a dream though as Arlene is now, obviously, Hep-V positive.
  • Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) grapples with whether to stay or leave with Nicole (Jurnee Smollett-Bell). Arlene offers some advice. I still have no idea which way this story line will end.
  • Nu Blood – it’s like Tru Blood, just with Sarah Newlin’s blood and not the added Hep-V.
  • Hoyt Fortenberry (Jim Parrack) finally arrives from Alaska. In tow he has his gorgeous and smart new girlfriend, Bridget. So, of course, when Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) arrives, he is immediately coveting his ex-besties new girlfriend. The Hoyt and Jason moments are poignant as Jason lies about how Hoyt’s mother died. Jason ogling Hoyt’s girlfriend, not so nice – hasn’t he learned already?
  • Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) and Lettie Mae (Adina Porter) are digging in the yard of Lettie’s old house, looking for whatever it is that Tara (Rutina Wesley) wanted them to find. Shame they didn’t knock on the door and ask the current owners first though…
  • We finish this episode where we started all those years ago: with Sookie running through the cemetery in a white dress and then having sex with Bill in front of a raging fire. All the Team Bill fans out there are now worried that this hook up is way too early to come to any good – is Bill really going to meet the true death this time?

COMIC CON 2014: Deborah Ann Woll Talks About Her True Blood Reunion

August 3, 2014

San Diego’s Comic Con is a Great Place For a True Blood Reunion!

Deborah Ann Woll stars as Jessica Hamby in HBOs True Blood Season 7At this year’s Comic Con in San Diego, True Blood actress Deborah Ann Woll (who plays Jessica Hamby) got a final chance to catch up with the cast of HBO’s vampire series. It is a cast and crew that she feels are more like family and friends than any other movie or TV show she has worked on so far. While it has only been a few short weeks since the cast and crew wrapped up the final filming of the show, it still felt like a reunion for Deborah!

Speaking of reunions – or, more to the point, unions – what did Deborah have to say about a certain recent union between her character, Jessica, and Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten)? And how did she think Violet (Karolina Wydra) would react:

You can kind of see she is not happy about it and I don’t think Violet is someone to let anything go. So there’ll definitely be some drama there.

You can watch the full video she shot with Access Hollywood below:

COMIC CON 2014: What if There Was a True Blood Season 8?

August 2, 2014

The True Blood Cast Discuss Their Show For the Last Time at Comic Con:

Kristin Bauer van Straten stars as vampire Pam in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 7 (entitled 'May Be the Last Time')For the cast of HBO’s True Blood, attending San Diego’s Comic Con this year was bittersweet. While they got to celebrate their show one last time, it also churned up the emotions too. For Kristin Bauer van Straten (who plays vampire Pam – a character with, ironically, very little display of emotion) it was particularly trying. As a person who gets very emotional very easily, she felt worn out and dehydrated by the end:

It’s been really intense. I’m totally dehydrated. I feel like I’m ten months pregnant and I just need a c-section because it’s going on forever.

While Kristin never wanted the show to end, she is certainly over having to relive the end of it!

And what if they did go into a Season 8? Where do they think their characters could have gone? Is there anything their character hadn’t done that the actor would liked to have seen happen if there were another season? Carrie Preston, the actor who plays Arlene Fowler, was happy with Arlene’s story line, but she felt it would have been interesting to see her character become a supernatural!

You can watch the full Comic Con interview EW did with the True Blood cast below:

Stephen Moyer stars as Bill Compton and Deborah Ann Woll stars as Jessica Hamby in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 7 (entitled 'May Be the Last Time')With only a few short episodes left of HBO’s True Blood Season 7, fans are eager to drain every last drop of information before the show meets it’s final death. So, we have scrounged up some stills for you! Three of these stills show sad faces: Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) seems to be searching to skies for something (her fairy grandfather, Niall Brigant (Rutger Hauger) perhaps?) Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) seems perplexed over something. Meanwhile, Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) and his progeny, Jessica Hamby (Deborah Ann Woll) appear to be deep in discussion.

And then there is Arlene (Fowler (Carrie Preston). Bright, happy, red like a sunset, Arlene. Seems she is the only one happy in Bon Temps in Episode 7 – sure hope we’re wrong about that.
