Will Jessica Survive Episode 10?
Early on in HBO’s True Blood Season 6, we saw Jessica Hamby (Deborah Ann Woll) ‘accidentally’ snacking on some tasty little fairy morsels. Of course, Andy Bellefleur (Chris Bauer) aure was angry to discover most of his fairy babies dead, only being able to revive one of them.
Fast track down to Episode 9 of True Blood and Andy still hasn’t had a chance to catch up with Jessica and confront her about her killer instincts. This looks set to change in Episode 10, entitled Radioactive, since Deborah Ann Woll recently dropped this hint in an interview with TV Guide:
There’s still a lot of story to be told. Before the end of the season, we will see more of them. It’s not over.
Thanks to a some disturbing snippets within some True Blood promo videos released by HBO, we can see Andy fired up and getting ready to go on a rampage with a loaded weapon – will Jessica meet the true death? Deborah doesn’t seem to think so:
When I read about what I did to Andy’s daughters, my first thought was, ‘I don’t know how Jessica Hamby and Andy Bellefleur can be on the same show after something like that. One of them is going to have to go.’ I was 90 percent sure that prophecy at the beginning just meant that I was going to bite it.
Judging by that, it seems Jessica does in fact survive. But is Bon Temps big enough for Jessica Hamby and Andy Bellefleur? I guess we’ll find out in True Blood Season 7!

Who Will Die? Will We See Eric Northman in True Blood Season 7?
With only a short time to go until HBO’s True Blood Season 6 finale, fans are already wondering what will go down. Here at TrueBloodNet, we have all been curious to see how Brian Buckner will close a season that is already becoming a fan favorite.
Here are our predictions for what will occur in Episode 10 (entitled Radioactive), the season finale of True Blood:
- Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) won’t die, but will head on over to Honolulu to alert them about the Tru Blood contamination
- Billith (Stephen Moyer) will be chased by Lilth and her three bloody handmaidens throughout Episode 10. This will follow through into Season 7
- Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) will not appear much (if at all) in Episode 10, but will return in Season 7 as the top villain
- Considering how sad Kristin Bauer van Straten gets whenever she is asked about the demise of her maker, Eric Northman, in True Blood, perhaps it is actually Pam de Beaufort that will bite the dust?
- Warlow (Robert Kazinsky) will also die. And considering how sad he appears when Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) leaves for Terry Bellefleur’s (Todd Lowe) funeral, it could possibly be at his own hand
- Niall (Rutger Hauer) will appear right at the end of Episode 10
- Alcide Herveaux (Joe Manganiello) will make a pass at Sookie, this will confuse her even more in regard to her feelings towards Warlow
- Some of the vampires that were feeding off Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) were infected with Hep V - this will lead to the big question: how will humans react to Hep V?
- Jason will only find out about his Hep V status when Violet (Karolina Wydra) starts getting the tell-tale blue veins
It’s highly likely we are completely off with our predictions and Brian Buckner has something else even more spectacular planned for us all in the True Blood Season 6 finale, but it’s still fun to dream.
What are your predictions for the Season 6 finale? And what are your predictions for True Blood Season 7? Let us know in the comments below,

Michael McMillian Talks about the Demise of Steve Newlin:
In a recent interview with Vulture.com, HBO‘s True Blood Michael McMillian(Steve Newlin) reveals his feelings on the departure of Steve Newlin. In Episode 9 of True Blood Steve Newlin meets the sun at the hands of a VERY pissed off Eric. Check out some of my favourite questions here!
“Do you think he was gay, or bisexual? Because there must have been something between him and Sarah at one point.
Yeah, well, Anna Camp and I used to talk about it, and we still do. We think that they still had a bit of a kinky sex life there for a while. I think they married young, and they were both virgins when they got married, and I think she was just trying to keep Steve happy for a long time. I think there was probably some intense dom/sub play going on in the bedroom. I think Sarah was willing to perform certain acts for Steve to keep her husband happy.”
Did you see this coming for Steve? How much advance warning did you get?
Steve was really digging himself into a hole this season. Steve Newlin is the Jabba the Hutt of the True Blood universe. He has a very important place in the mythology, but he’s not going to help Luke Skywalker blow up the Death Star, you know? And especially seeing how the story was going, and Steve taking his place as a villain again and causing so much damage? If you think about it, Luna died because Steve and Russell kidnapped Emma. Pam was outted as Eric’s progeny because of him. Nora dies because of him. And he just wasn’t going to make it through. But Steve really dies at the hands of both Eric and Sarah.”
Who was Steve’s maker? He didn’t know her name …
I’d love to answer the question, but the truth is, I don’t know! And I’m not sure if the show is ever going to answer it or not. At one point, we were going to find out last season, and it was written out in the script, but they scratched it out.”

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

Wasn’t HBO’s True Blood Season 6, Episode 9, entitled Life Matters, just the best episode so far this season? There were just so many quotes to choose from! Did I miss any?

Neither can I.
So what did you think of True Blood Season 6, Episode 9, entitled Life Matters? Personally, this was my favourite episode of the Season! In fact, I would probably rank it somewhere in the top 5 across the ENTIRE series. To me, this episode was less about how much life matters, and how much more family matters.
And what about Steven Newlin, hey? Even though I HATED him the most in the last episode, I am actually really sad to see him go.
This is what went down:
- So Billith (Stephen Moyer) is pissy with Sookie (Anna Paquin) for not handing over Warlow (Robert Kazinsky). Sookie reminds him that Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) now has more fairy blood in him than Warlow – seriously Billith, did you lose your brain when you became all ‘Look at me, I’m a god’? While Billith is trying to get his brain around this concept, Sookie zaps his ass right out of Fairyland!
- Speaking of Eric, he’s on a rampage – and it is AWESOME! Billith spends the whole season worrying about how to save his vampire friends. Eric? He’s a man of action! In all of five minutes he’s managed to drain Warlow AND turn the security outside Vamp Camp into a bloody soup. *high five Eric*
- Warlow says he fine – but I don’t think he is…
- While all the crazy Vamp Camp stuff is going on, we have Terry’s (Todd Lowe) funeral occurring in Bon Temps. We get a whole heap of flashbacks (Terry gets a job) and blasts from the past (Jane Bodehouse sobers up and Maxine Fortenberry STILL isn’t happy with her son’s choice in women) mixed in with plenty of tears. (I dare you not to cry when Big John sings.) It’s a good funeral and a poignant send off for a gentle character that struggled so much with his inner demons.
- Back at Vamp Camp Eric is ripping the junk off Dr. Overlark (John Fleck) and leaving to die within sight of his crown jewels. Just when you think this is the most eye-watering scene ever in True Blood history, Billith arrives (always just one step behind Eric) and stomps on the man’s head
- Speaking of vampires getting their revenge on their captors, Dr. Finn (Pruitt Taylor Vince) gets to brag about his conquest with Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten), but then gets killed by her. Rule learned here: Always, always, be nice to vampires
- Eric finds Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) while he is releasing everyone from gen pop. Jason is thankful for the blood healing Eric gives him, but it looks like we will get to witness Jason questioning his sexuality again this season
- By the way, did anyone notice the lack of fangs after Eric bit his arm open for Jason?
- Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) is excellent at playing dead to escape the vampires. Thanks to this, she manages to get up on the roof of Vamp Camp and manually opens the roof to the white room – luckily Bill has finally worked out that he needs to let all the vampires trapped in there feed off him and none of them actually fry
- All except Steve Newlin (Michael McMillian). Well, technically, Billith is happy to give him his blood, but the other vamps pull rank and it is time for Steve to meet the sun. Line of the night goes to Steve; ‘I love you Jason Stackhouse!’ while his
derangedpoor estranged wife, Sarah Newlin looks on.
- That’s when Jason Stackhouse realises that she’s still alive and takes chase. It’s nice to see all that time spent playing football back in high school helps him bring her down! It’s a shame he can’t pull the trigger though and kill her. Guess we will be seeing more of Sarah Newlin in True Blood Season 7 then…
- Lafayette (Nelsan Reynolds) gives the best funeral speeches. EVER!
- So Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) finally works out that Billith is weak from blood loss and missing. She takes James (Luke Grimes) back to the white room to find him
- Being near death, Billith is seeing Lilith’s (Jessica Clarke) bloody messengers again. This time they are telling him his time on earth is over! Luckily Jessica arrives at just the right time and she and James feed Billith back to health
- Meanwhile, somewhere in Honolulu, a truck filled with Tru Blood is being stolen by vampires
- The mystery of ‘Where’s Ginger (Tara Buck)?’ has been solved: Governor Burrell (Arliss Howard) was using her as a human blood cow. We get to hear her deliciously shrill shrieks for the rest of the episode as a result of her being released
- Vampires go all ‘hippy lovechild‘ when they are high on fairy blood
- True Blood has officially gone Team Twilight on us with day-walking vampires. This makes me a little uncomfortable…
- Pam and Eric have a moment – right before Eric zooms off into the sky. He must have some unfinished work. Maybe in Honolulu? Guess we’ll have to wait until True Blood’s Season 6 Finale to find out!
So what did you think of Life Matters? Are you excited about the finale? Have you baked Sookie’s gran’s pecan pie yet?

How Will Sarah Newlin Cope?
And so we come to the end of an era. Last night in HBO’s True Blood Season 6, Episode 9, entitled Life Matters, the (former) Reverend Steve Newlin (Michael McMillian) finally met the sun. And is it just me, or are we all going to miss the spineless little turncoat?
While Steve got to meet the sun (which was a sweet iron due to his joy of making vampires meet the sun in Season 2), it was a bitter sweet moment. Steve was the character we all loved to hate after all. Michael McMilllian, however, was just pleased that he managed to make people both sad and happy with his death:
It’s a funny moment in the script. I was checking [Twitter] last night, of course, and I was actually surprised that people thought it was as funny as it was. That made me really happy. And I also got a lot of messages saying that people were sad to see Steve go. So if you can pull off a death that is both sad and hilarious, I think you’ve done your job okay.
As for that last line muttered: “I love you Jason Stackhouse!” That was entirely McMillian’s idea after he was disappointed at there being no Steve and Jason (Ryan Kwanten) action in True Blood’s Season 6.
Considering the fact that Michael McMillian has actually been with True Blood since Season 1, Entertainment Weekly wanted to know if there was any special send-off – especially from Alexander Skarsgard:
He gave me a very personal sendoff in the gag reel, which nobody but cast and crew saw. It was somewhat inappropriate and somewhat hilarious, but beyond that I really can’t describe it too much. [Laughs] There was a little skin involved. Yes.
What we wouldn’t give to see that gag reel, hey Trubies?!
Were you sad to see Steve Newlin die in True Blood Season 6? Or were you glad he’s finally dead? Let us know by commenting below.

Deborah Ann Woll Talks About Her Loss of Vampire Faith:
HBO’s True Blood Season 6 has seen the great state of Louisiana declaring war on vampires, Tru Blood is almost gone, internment camps for the vamps, and our favourite cast of characters are going through some really trying times.
Bill (Stephen Moyer) has to work out a way to save his friends from the prophecy he has foreseen, and Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) had all but given up on “life” after draining the three of the four fairy girls. TV Guide spoke with Deborah Ann Woll to get the scoop on what was coming up.
We have seen Jessica dealing with so much regret:
She’s suffered from self-hate and self-doubt all along, so this is just a confirmation of all those fears; those fears that she is a monster because of these dark urges that she has. She thinks she’s going to die, that’s what Bill foresaw. She understands that’s what’s going to happen. She’ll save as many of her friends as she can, but I don’t think she feels like she has to work too hard for herself because it’s not as bad if she doesn’t exist. That’s a pretty dark place for her to be.
We have been introduced to James (Luke Grimes) this season, a young and handsome suitor for Jessica that is not human like Hoyt (Jim Parrack) or Jason (Ryan Kwanten). It’s as though she is finally accepting of the vampire that she is and James is going to continue to be a part of that.
And along with that, letting go of some of the old lovers too like Jason Stackhouse who has come to save her in the internment camp putting himself at great risk:
She cares deeply for him and feels like she’s hurt him more than he ever deserved to be. That scene of her letting him go was like, “I’m not worth it. Get out of here.” We’ll see if they’re able to come out of this.
And finally what does Jessica think about the prophecy coming true?
She doesn’t want to take any active steps towards saving herself, but she doesn’t feel that her friends deserve to die and that anybody should die risking themselves for her. She’s of the mindset that she will help people out to the extent that it saves vampire kind, but she’s trying to come to terms that it may not save her in the end.
So, do you think Jessica will survive?

…And How She Ended Up at the ER in Full Costume:
True Blood fans have seen it all now, when in Episode 7 Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) picked up the severed head of her lover Gov. Truman Burrell (Arliss Howard), and kissed it. In her lovely southern drawl, she exclaimed:
“I had no idea, actually that I was gonna kiss the head, it just sort of happened. If I get an impulse that’s like creepy, I’m like ‘why not’? They can always tell me not to do it. But better to be pulled back than pushed forward, you know?”
She stated that the special effects department got it so right; the severed head looked so much like Arliss Howard… everybody on set was like “Whoa! I can’t believe you kissed that!”
Her biggest crazy so far went to air last Sunday night though in Episode 8 of True Blood Season 6, which landed her in the ER with a minor injury for the stunt she did for that episode. Shot over 3 days, the scene is one which is violent and graphic and certainly one that took a lot of stamina for actress Anna Camp.
In other roles Anna has played crazy, but she says that this season, this time round on True Blood
“I’ve had some of the best lines I’ll probably ever have on television!”
