The Rev. Returns To Visit Jason Stackhouse:SteveNewlin

Season 4 left us with a ton of changes and questions at its end. We shouldn’t expect any less from Alan Ball. Tara‘s fate is in the air, Jessica and Hoyt are finished, and Sookie has no man! Perhaps one of the most surprising things to happen was Steve Newlin showing up on Jason‘s doorstep. This was hands down the most surprising moment of that episode for me. Newlin was the best part about Season 2 and now he’s back and with fangs? It can’t get much better than that in my opinion. From what I’ve read people seem to be divided on the meaning of that look Newlin gives Jason when he opens the door. Actor Michael McMillian gave his take on the whole thing saying:

“It seems really clear to me that Steve was always just as attracted to Jason as his wife was… In his eyes, Jason Stackhouse is the guy that Steve really wanted to be. I think he had a really heavy man-crush on him… that might have gone a bit deeper. And I think Steve is more heartbroken that Jason slept with Sarah than he is that Sarah slept with Jason, if you know what I mean.”

I can’t wait to see what Steve Newlin brings to the table in Season 5. I think this is a surprise that not a lot of us were expecting and I’m sure Alan Ball will deliver in ways that will definitely please the fans.
