SPOILERS: Casting Call for True Blood Season 4 Episode 5

February 17, 2011 by  

I Hate You, I Love You:

True Blood's Bill Compton, played by Stephen MoyerAll this waiting for season four of HBO‘s True Blood is probably about as traumatic as starvation is for a vampire. Thankfully, more spoilers are trickling in and the latest revolves around episode five, ‘I Hate You, I Love you.’ Hmmm, wonder who’s going to be doing the hating and who’ll be doing the loving? We have spent way too much time thinking about the possible implications of True Blood‘s casting calls, and the most recent casting call for episode five has us stammering about possible conspiracy theories!

DON BARTOLO: 40s – 60s, a bad-ass Mexican man, seen in a flashback in his 40s, as well as in present day (grayer and more weathered), he is Jesus‘s terrifying, intimidating grandfather, a hardcore brujo (witch or shaman). Actor must speak Spanish.

YOUNG JESUS: 9, male, Hispanic, seen in flashback to 1985, he is Jesus as a young boy, living in the Chihuahuan desert with his mother and his terrifying shaman grandfather, Don…2 lines, 1 scene.  Actor must speak Spanish.

JESUS’ MOTHER: 30s, Mexican, she is Young Jesus’ mother seen in flashback to 1985. She is desperate to protect her son from her father’s brujo influence…2 lines, 1 scene. Actress must speak Spanish.

GUARD: 30s, male, one of Bill‘s guards, he is frustrated by a video game on his cellphone…1 line, 1 scene .

PADRE SANTIAGO: 50s, male, seen in flashback to 1610 Spain, this sarcastic vampire priest feeds on a woman in a medieval dungeon. Actor must speak Spanish.

SHERIFF 1 AND SHERIFF 2: 30s – 40s, male, these snickering vampire sheriffs, under Bill’s purview, disagree with his decision regarding a witch‘s fate…1 line, 1 scene.

FEMALE SHERIFF: 30s – 40s, this female vampire sheriff cheers on Pam…1 line, 1 scene.

First of all, it appears that Bill’s rank in season four is going to be one of more power, especially if he has a guard and is giving orders to Sheriffs. Right? Which seems like a HUGE spoiler, one of which Alan Ball wouldn’t actually reveal in a casting call, but who knows? Is Bill’s new power because of Eric going missing / getting amnesia? Or is Bill dreaming?

Secondly, who’s the witch that Bill is potentially going to kill or not kill? Could it be a witch that we meet at the start of season four or is it a witch that we may have met in season three (maybe Yvetta?)?

What do you think, Truebies?

    This has nothing to do with the plot, but I bet the guard gets pissed over Angry Birds. Hahaha!! I just made myself laugh really hard.

    Hi Caitlin,

    I don’t think they will kill off Jessica – she is a regular and very popular. Hoyt being turned could be a possibility!

    Yes, a Pam and Eric flashback to when she was turned would be very good to see.

    I only suggested that it could be Jesus’ grandfather’s back story re the Spanish spoiler because it is more or less their ethnic background. Bill is only 173 yrs old so couldnot be involved in that storyline. I don’t know about the witch wars being started by him – guess we will have to wait and see, LOL! Yes, I agree that Laf needs some good loving and things to go right for him. I also hope Jesus is a good witch.

    Re the British Punk Rock scene? I think Bill and that fairy Dermot (or however it is spelt) because someone saw Bill being filmed at that old British Pub and with a guy who looked like Ryan Kwanten, though it may have been that blond British barman that a casting call was made for a while ago That guy is blond.

    Stephen Moyer also said that he though he knew Bill through and through and yet, the Writers have made him do something he did not think Bill would do – maybe dress as a punk rocker in a Brit pub?? Who knows!

    Isn’t great speculating???

      Hi Lizzie,

      I haven’t heard the rumor about Stephen filming at some bar. I can’t wait to see that flashback I don’t think Jessica will be killed off but I am a little worried about her and Hoyt.

  • lizzie1701

    “these snickering vampire sheriffs, under Bill’s purview, disagree with his decision regarding a witch‘s fate” has me very interested! I do so want Bill to have a worthy storyline in S4 – so glad saw the Peru storyline as useless – just got to love AB!

    Isn’t this E/S shower scene request just getting a bit too dreary? Bill and Sookie had a lovely intimate shower scene – it has been done, imo. Doing another one would be copycatting. More of what Bill has I want – not good.

    Thanks for posting Heather and it is great you guys are back on line!

      Hi Lizzie,

      I do hope Bill has a good storyline this season. I do not want to see him moping around in every scene over his breakup. I hope to see him spending more time with Jessica. There is a lot he needs to fill her in on. I think AB said the honeymoon is over for Jessica/Hoyt so she will need Bill. Jessica needs to learn more about the vampire world.

      I am an Eric/Sookie fan but yes, I doubt they will do the Eric/Sookie shower scene. They have already done two of them Bill/Sookie and Tara/dream Franklin. Many people expect it so I think they will come up with something different.I would be a little surprised if they did do the shower scene.

      I’m curious about that 1610 Spain vampire flashback. I always like flashbacks. Maybe there will be a Bill/Eric one so we get to see the root of their animosity towards each other.

        Hi Caitlin,

        Yes, I think Bill will be involved with AVL and being there for Jessica plus, I think he will go through a bit of depression, poor Boy. He loved Sookie so much- more than she loved him, even though she professed over and over again that she would never leave him and understood that Bill had evil as well as goodness in him. Fine words, pity she did not act upon them.

        I think there will be a lot of Jesus and Jesus background flashbacks this season. Maybe the Spanish flashbacks will be to do with his family?

        Yes, a Bill and Eric flashback would be great – maybe the London scene??

          Hi Lizzie,

          Good point, it that flashback could have something to do with Jesus. I don’t know how though. I’m not surprised that Jesus’s grandfather will come on this season. After his forboding words that season. That guy gave me the creeps but I’m intrigued to see h im show up. Maybe Jesus Grandfather will be the one to cause a witch war. I’m still not sure if Jesus is a good or bad witch. I hope he is good. Laffy deserves a little happyiness. I think they are cute together. I’m scared for Hoyt/Jessica though. I would be so upset if Jessica got killed off because she is just a baby vamp. I think Bill would completely lose it if Jessica died. I love Hoyt too. I still think it is possible that Hoyt will be turned.

          I think the London/club flashback mentioned has Eric written all over it. Maybe Bill to I like seeing what they were like in different time periods. The flashback I want to see the most is Pam first meeting Eric. I want to know how she convinced him to turn her? How did she even know that he was a vampire when they were a thing of myths at that time? I thought they were going to show that flashback in season 3 but to my dissapointment they did not. Also, I really want to see a flashback of Bill and his wife when before the horrors of war and Lorena touched their lives. It would be nice to see a glimps of Bill when he was happy and life was good. Any flashback is good for me. They are like extra treats to the viewers.

          I second that Lizzie, I want to see a London flashback involving Pam and Eric and how she was turned and a flashback between Bill and Eric. We have to find out how they know each other and how long and why they don’t get along. There has to be something there. I hope we find out this season.

  • TeamE

    Maybe Queen Sophie-Ann had something to do with Bill’s new rank…All I care about…will AB keep the Sookie/Eric shower scene? or did we get screwed with the Bill/Sookie shower scene?

    • Once again, as we’ve said many times here, AB can do whatever he wants. It’s his sandbox, we all just play in it. 😉

  • jaxx

    Hmmm, under Bill’s purview. If he is in charge of sheriffs, what title would that make him? Can a sheriff be in charge of other sheriff’s? Could Bill be the new Magister?? Could a magister decide a witch’s fate?? I still think Bill is involved with the AVL or the Authority. It will be interesting to see what they do with Bill’s character. He must live after the fight b/t QSA and him then or do they come to some sort of truce??? Don’t forget Yvetta did steal money from Eric. That may be a punishable offense, among other things.

    Wow intersting spoilers. Is it June yet???

      Hi again jaxx,

      I agree it seems like there has to be something more Bill is hiding. Maybe we will find out more about the Rattray sistuation. How did Eric even know about that? Russell is indisposed so maybe Bill can resume his position that held in Mississippi. Maybe Bill will be sheriff of Mississippi and temp sheriff for Eric(if Eric even has amnesia). It would make sense for Pam to take charge though. Probably, Bill and Pam will be forced to work together against the witches. I still agree that Bill could be working for the AVL. Nan is supposed to be on a lot this season so maybe Bill will aquire more power through the AVL. They would not have much of a choice with Russell missing, QSA digging herself into a mess, and Erics possible amnesia. Plus Bill needs to gain some power so Eric cannot exact revenge on Bill. We all know Eric is big on vengence. I think the witch might be Yvetta. Maxine might be headed over to the Compton home in search of Jessica so maybe she will interrupt the fight btw Bill/QSA.

      • jaxx

        Catilin, that is true Bill is sheriff of Mississippi, maybe he will also act as temporary sheriff of area 5. I wonder if Pam could take over. I doubt it though, hierarch seems very political in the vamp system. Good call on Maxine, yes, she may break things up. Poor Jess, I hope Maxine doesn’t hurt her.
