Sookie and Bill Prepare For a Party in Episode 5:
This week HBO has graced us with another sneak peek into Episode 5 (entitled Lost Cause) of True Blood Season 7! While the first video clip was a general tease about the upcoming episode, this video has just two characters; Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer). It seems Sookie is attending a party she only just heard about and the flowers Bill offers her are not nearly enough to temper her mood!
Exhausted from her recent travails, Sookie finds herself the unwilling host of a festive mainstreaming party in Bon Temps. In search of an elusive adversary, Eric and Pam head to Dallas and attend a gala fundraiser. Andy (Chris Bauer) makes a life-changing decision; Jessica and James reach a crossroads; Bill loses himself in remembrance of human days.
Written by Craig Chester; directed by Howie Deutch.

Season 7 Will be a Bloodbath:
With less than a month to go until HBO’s True Blood Season 7 kicks off, there is plenty of anticipation! Fans are scouring the latest teaser videos and promo posters in order to extract every last tasty morsel of information in relation to the very last season of True Blood.
Thanks to a recent on the set interview by TVGuide, there is now a whole lot more to pine over. Husband and wife True Blood actors, Stephen Moyer (who plays Bill Compton), Anna Paquin (Sookie Stackhouse) and showrunner, Brian Buckner had the following to say about True Blood Season 7:
- Bill has to kill both a greedy human and a menacing vampire in Season 7. Who they are and whether we know either of them remains to be seen.
- The abovementioned deaths involve a bloodbath unheard of – even for True Blood standards. The special effects involved in this gore ridden scene have been dubbed ‘Bellagio‘ (after the famous fountain in Las Vegas)
- Season 7 will end on a more personal note according to Brian Buckner:
We’re going back to the original promise of the show: Bill and Sookie. People are going to be very surprised about the way we get there. There’s romance, sadness and resolution.
- Nobody is safe. Nobody. With the outbreak of Hep V infected vampires encroaching on Bellefleurs (formerly Merlotte’s), fans had no doubt of this. It will probably come down to just how many of our True Blood faves will succumb.
- Sookie cannot save everyone. Anna Paquin had this to say:
The stakes are the highest they’ve ever been. Sookie gets into situations she’s going to need help getting out of.
- Bon Temps may be going to hell in a handbasket, but people will still be getting naked! Well, this we probably could have guessed at already, but Brian Buckner has just confirmed it for us.

Latest Promo Poster Features Sookie With a Bloody Tear:
And we all know that only vampires in the Sookieverse cry bloody tears. Could this latest promo poster from HBO for True Blood Season 7 signify a change in Sookie (Anna Paquin)? Will she sacrifice the very thing she cherishes so dearly – being a human – in order to save someone else?
This idea was investigated in in Season 6, so surely the writers wouldn’t draw upon this dilemma so soon? However, we have seen a lot of doom and gloom in the trailers for Season 7. We have also seen Sookie sobbing and bloody as someone appears to be dying in her arms – could this be the catalyst needed for Sookie to consider becoming a vampire?
Yet, the title of the poster seems to say otherwise: True to the End. This would suggest that Sookie wouldn’t turn – no matter what odds are stacked against her.
So why is she crying bloody tears HBO?

‘Nobody Should be Safe’ Says True Blood Writer Raelle Tucker:
Fans of True Blood’s main character, Sookie Stackhouse (played by Anna Paquin), will be shocked to hear that the Bon Temps telepathic waitress nearly didn’t survive True Blood Season 5! If series writer, Raelle Tucker, had her way, she would have come to an untimely demise in order to shake things up for the vampire loving audience. Recently she told the audience at the Rio Film Festival:
In Season 5 I pitched to kill Sookie, I really did because I think nobody should be safe.
It’s always a fine line writers have to walk: that of keeping the audience happy, and shaking things up just enough so fans tune in for the next episode. Tucker went on explain that it is a writers job to kill of characters, yet, when asked how she feels when their intended audience is upset about character deaths, she had this to say:
It’s a good feeling if the audience is feeling upset when a character dies, that means we have done our job right.
Raelle was very thankful to be writing for television in a day and age such as this one. She was also very excited about the advent of viewing platforms such as NetFlix, Amazon and Hulu, but was most thankful to HBO, citing the studio and network for the long term success of True Blood. She summed up her thoughts on television in the digital age by saying:
It feels that the only limitation on television is what you can imagine, there is no boundaries of what you can say, what you can do.
Do you think Sookie should have died in Season 5? Let us know in the comments below.

Will We See One More Death in the Finale?:
With the Season 6 Finale of True Blood less than a week away, there is the lingering possibility that the Season 6 major character death is still to come. Fans watched with awe and sadness in Episode 6, when the lovable and tormented Terry Bellefleur(Todd Lowe) set the wheels in motion to put an end to his tortured life. We knew almost immediately that Terry would be the “major” character death of Season 6. Episode 7 confirmed our feelings, and yet the death of Terry Bellefleur for some was a little anti-climatic. Yes Terry has been in the series since the beginning, but Terry? The major character death?
I would like to propose another twist that the major character death is still to come in the Season 6 Finale which aires next Sunday August 18 on HBO. The major character death could in fact be none other than Bon Temps favourite telepath, Sookie Stackhouse(Anna Paquin).
What we know:
1) Sookie has promised to become Warlow(Rob Kazinsky’s) faerie vampire bride, this can only be achieved with the “death” of Sookie. Sookie reconfirmed her promise to Warlow in Episode 9.
2) Sookie does not want to die and be buried next to her parents for all of eternity.
3) Sookie’s “death” would not mean the end of her time on the show True Blood, it would mark the beginning of a very interesting storyline.
It has been said in an interview that the finale brings “game changer” status to True Blood. Having Sookie become a vampire would definitely be a game changer, since we have spent the past 5 seasons listening to her say that she would never turn into a vampire…
So Truebies what do you think? Will Sookie go through with the faerie vampire wedding, marking the “real” major character death of the season?

Could You Imagine Sarah Newlin as Sookie?
While Anna Camp is thoroughly enjoying the return of her character, Sarah Newlin, to HBO’s True Blood Season 6, it seems she very nearly made it to the True Blood big time: Sookie Stackhouse (played by Anna Paquin).
With her big hair, southern hospitality and an aversion to vampires, Sarah has turned out to be the villain Truebies just love to hate. It’s a challenge she thoroughly enjoys too.
When you have the mean girl, you can’t just hate her. You’ve got to love to hate her. There’s a certain line you have to walk to play the mean girl. You obviously can’t be in on the joke, but you have to commit to it.
While Camp enjoys playing the nasty characters, True Blood’s first showrunner, Alan Ball, had a different idea. Originally, he had Anna Camp try out for the role of Sookie Stackhouse! It seems that Anna wasn’t so sure she’d fit the part. And once she saw Anna Paquin trying out for the role, she knew it wasn’t going to come to pass:
We passed each other in the hallway, and I was like, ‘Oh, Anna Paquin. She’s totally going to get this.’
While Anna Camp may have missed a golden opportunity at a long time role on True Blood, fans sure a happy with her portrayal of Sarah Newlin. While Sarah is the villain we all love to hate, it has come down entirely to the brilliant portrayal of the character by Anna Camp.
Do you think Anna Camp would make a better Sookie Stackhouse? Or, alternatively, could you imagine Anna Paquin as Sarah Newlin? Let us know in the comments below.

Does Glowing During Sex Result in Pregnancy?
In Episode 6, (entitled Don’t You Feel Me), of HBO’s True Blood Season 6, we got to see Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and her very special fairy lady parts get intimate with Ben/Warlow (Robert Kazinsky) while she was hiding him from Billith (Stephen Moyer) in Fairyland. With a rather ‘glowing’ end to the consummation, fans have been speculating that Sookie could now be pregnant, thanks to the same thing happening when Andy Bellefleur (Chris Bauer) and Maurella’s (Kristina Anapau) tryst ended this way.
If this is the case, than more questions than answers are raised:
- If Sookie is pregnant, would the baby be human, fae, vampire or a combination of the three?
- Does glowing really indicate conception, or is it just a sign they had a ‘happy ending’
- Would Billith stoop so low as to drain one of Sookie’s fairy babies if they turn out to be the same as Warlow?
- How many babies would Sookie have?
- Does this now mean that Warlow and Sookie are married?
Recently, Roberrt Kazinsky dropped a hint about that scene when asked about what Warlow can and can’t do, which has further fanned the rumors:
I can eat, I can cry, I can bleed, I can have children, I can walk in daylight. And that’s an interesting proposition for a show like this.
Well, now isn’t that an intriguing thing to say? It will be interesting to see if anything comes to fruition from Episode 6. While there was no hint of pregnancy mentioned in Episode 7, (entitled In the Evening), there is still plenty of time for things to occur with three more episodes of True Blood’s Season 6 left. Wouldn’t it make a fantastic cliffhanger?
You can view the entire interview with Robert Kazinsky here.
