R.I.P to True Blood’s Nora Gainesborough

July 31, 2013

RIP Nora Gainesborough (played by Lucy Griffiths) in HBO's True Blood Season 6, Episode 7, entitled 'In the Evening'

Is Nora’s Death a Catalyst for Eric’s Revenge?

So last week in HBO’s True Blood Season 6, Episode 6 we lost Terry Bellefleur (Todd Lowe) and Governor Burrell (Arliss Howard). This week, in Episode 7, entitled In the Evening, it’s Nora Gainesborough’s (Lucy Griffiths) turn. While fans were expecting it after she was injected in the previous episode with Hepatitis V, it was still sad. Not to mention the fact that her sibling’s response (Eric Northman, played brilliantly by Alexander Skarsgard) tore at our heartstrings.

But will this be Eric’s incentive for revenge? Will we see a return to the brutal Viking we know and love? And how do you even begin to shoot a scene where the dying vampire dissolves into a puddle of goo? Well, Lucy Griffiths can answer that last question one for you:

I had to have a tube next to my head and they had to pump all the blood through it, to make it look like I was melting, before they added the CGI. So I was covered in blood, covered head to toe, and it was so cold. It feels quite strange! The vein effects right before that were part transfers and make-up and post-production.

While this scene was tricky to perform, it was the flashback scenes that felt the strangest to Griffiths. She likened it to being on the set of a completely different show.

Now that Nora has died, there is also that pesky little fact that no one knows about the apparent incorrect interpretation of the Vampire Bible. Is this a dead end story line, or could the true meaning be revealed later on in the season? Only time will tell – and that time is quickly running out with the True Blood Season 6 finale fast approaching!

True Blood Quickie: True Blood Season 6 Episode 7 “In the Evening” Recap

July 29, 2013

 Season 6 Starts to Bring Everything Together:

Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) and James (Luke Grimes) get to know each other in HBO's True Blood Season 6 Episode 7, entitled 'In the Evening'So what did everyone think of HBO’s True Blood Season 6, Episode 7, entitled In the Evening? While it wasn’t my favorite episode of this season, it was still a goodie and I can definitely feel a drawing together of all the story lines. With only a few sweet episodes left…

This is what went down:

  • Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) works out pretty quickly what’s going down with the Hepatitis V/Tru Blood contamination
  • The breech is discovered at Vamp Camp – Eric still manages to escape with an ailing Nora (Lucy Griffiths) though
  • Willa’s (Amelia Rose Blaire) still floating around with her severed hand, getting into places she isn’t allowed to be. She tells Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) about the Hepatitis V contamination. However, Pam tells Willa to shut her trap about the Hep V – and with good reason. If no vampires are drinking it, then it’s a dead giveaway that they know about the contamination. So, with the exception of Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) and Tara (Rutina Wesley), it seems the rest of the vamp crew at Vamp Camp are about to bite the dust
  • Eric takes Nora to Billith and begs for him to fix her. While Nora is having no part of it (and we discover her stubbornness goes back to before she was turned), Billith ends up giving her his blood. It doesn’t work and we are left with a devastated Eric when Nora finally dies and ends up a puddle of goo in his lapSarah Newlin (Anna Camp) talks to a beheaded Governor Burrell (Arliss Howard) in HBO's True Blood Season 6 Episode 7, entitled 'In the Evening'
  • Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) discovers Governor Burrell’s (Arliss Howard)head – can anyone say necrophilia? Ew! The dead head kissing scene is GROSS! But, Sarah goes on to be her so-good-to-be-bad self and declares that no one need know about the Gov.’s death AND MANAGES TO PULL IT OFF!
  • Sookie and Benlow talk marriage and THAT contract. Then Sookie hears Arlene (Carrie Preston) crying and light beams out of fairyland to help her friend in her hour of need. Arlene (of course) spills her guts over everything: the glamour, Terry’s visit toLafayette (Nelsan Ellis); the whole kit and caboodle. Sookie goes back to the Bellefleur house and we find Andy (Chris Bauer) holding up remarkably well. Porcia (Courtney Ford) has arrived and Adeline (previously fairy #1) are there too. Sookie makes telepathy with Adeline and then her and Lala go off to check out what’s in Terry’s safety deposit box – can anyone say $2,000,000.00?
  • Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) finds out about Terry and sends Nicole (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) back home to mummy while he prepares to return to Bon Temps. Shame Rikki (Kelly Overton) picks up Nicole and her mum and calls Alcide’s (Joe Manganiello) bluff when he announces to his pack that they (along with Sam) are dead. Whoops. Although, things FINALLY got interesting in the werewolf story line…
  • Jessica gets a visit from Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten). After a bit of a chat and a clearing up of why he’s in armour, Jess asks for Jason to bring her James (Luke Grimes). Yummy! Yes, there is gratuitous nudity. Yes, we all have a new team to drool over (so long as he stops being so tortured about his existence). Yes, Jessica tells him about the Hep V. Hope James doesn’t end up a goo puddle though…
  • So Sarah can now tell Jason that his leverage with the Governor is gone. Hang on, weren’t we keeping this a secret Sarah? Oh well, Jason’s being chucked in gen pop, so I guess that’s a moot point. Luckily, Tara is there to defend him against all the other vampires. Except for that quiet queen-bee that HBO has been waving seductively in front of our noses for the last few episodes. Who IS she? And why does she think she can stake a claim over Jason?
  • Billith looks increasing like Tom Cruise in this episode. Are HBO having a dig at Scientology here? This is even funnier when you’ve seen the recent photo taken of Tom Cruise showing up at the True Blood table at Comic-Con 2013. You can check out Sam Trammell’s reaction here.
  • Billith offers sympathy to the Bellefleur’s – his family – over the loss of Terry. Except we all know it’s just because he wants some fairy blood. Oh wait, was that a THREAT to Andy, Billith? I won’t kill your baby if you don’t kill mine? We don’t believe you Billy boy!
  • HBO still can’t make a guy look any good in a wig. Although, Eric looking all Interview With a Vampire is probably the best attempt they’ve had so farPam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) goes back into therapy in HBO's True Blood Season 6 Episode 7, entitled 'In the Evening'
  • Pam gets all hot and heavy with her therapist – to get into gen pop. What’s she up to?
  • Billith tries guilt to enlist Sookie to bring him Warlow. Will she do it?

So, what did you think of Episode 7, In the Evening?

There is also a suggestion right at the end that Alcide’s dad wants him to leave the pack life behind. Maybe that’s why Alcide has been so cranky in Season 6 – is pack life simply rubbing him the wrong way?
