    Regarding the naked man dancing… I am nowhere near 300 lbs.

    • KS Rose

      Hiya Not! Thanks for keeping us straight on the info. As an administrator and someone who’s overweight myself, I wanted to assure you that we were merely reporting Nelsan’s statement not endorsing it. It bothered me that someone actually falling was considered humorous no matter what their weight (I didn’t even laugh when Andy was drunk and fell but that’s me) but not having seen the out-take we can only hope that you were not injured.

    There is so much in the preview trailer for the end of the Season 2 from Comic Con. Where do we start first? Well it appears that Sookie and Hugo are going to be detained by the FOTS. Eric will show to help get Sookie(Do you trust me?) out of the situation and ends up in chains ready to meet the sun. Remember Lorena and Eric are working together. It’s in the plans that Bill will not be able to help out immediately. By the time poor Bill shows up Eric will have Sookie suck*** you know what.

    Meanwhile, Bill is being detained by his maker Lorena. Which he is obviously steaming mad.Falling out with Jason and the Newlins. Kiss and tell. Vow of honesty, Jason. Poor Jason.

    Meanwhile, Sam being chased by Maryann only to escape by shape shifting into something small. Perhaps a bird. Maryann is looking up to the sky. In one of the interviews, Sam Trammel mentions shape shifting into something small and something large this season. That should be interesting.

    All hell is continuing to break loose in Bon Temps. Looks like Lafayette and Lettie Mae are freeing Tara from Maryann’s grips.

    The most interesting part of the trailer was the Sookie and ? in bed scene. Hmmmmmm. Blonde hair. Perhaps Sarah and Sookie. Not. He who will remain nameless. Swexy Swede.Looks like it could be a dream sequence or perhaps it could be the cliff hanger for the season or one of them. Alan Ball mentions in one of the tv interviews that there might be more than one cliff hanger this season. Awesome Alan. Drive us more crazy than we already are.

    It sounds like Stan is responsible for Godric’s death and Eric is not overly happy about that. The Wrath of Eric. Watch out. Could be more flying limbs or perhaps Stan will meeting the sun himself with the aid of Eric. Can anyone say “Great Balls of Fire”.

    OK, I obviously have too much time on my hands and I’m way to invested in this True Blood show. But I do love my “V” fix. This is so much more fun than working.

  • hope everyone enjoyed the tweets!

    • KS Rose

      Lafayette YOU are V8 engine in a shiny red convertible package! Runnin HOT and ready to go! Thank you SO SO so SO! Much!

  • mizmode

    Some great stuff! Thank you!
