True Blood: The Stories That Could Have Been

September 1, 2014

Showrunner Brian Buckner and the Cast Discuss the Storylines They Would Have Liked to Explore:

Final scene of HBO's True Blood Season 7With Season 7 dead and gone, truebies are still trying to work out how to fill the hole that was True Blood. Showrunner Brian Buckner and some other cast members seem to agree that perhaps there could have been a little more True Blood on out screens. Recently The Hollywood Reporter got to find out which stories went untold and which storylines the cast would like to have seen explored.

For showrunner Brian Buckner, he would have liked to have seen more of Lafayette Reynolds (Nelsan Ellis):

I think he’s brilliant. I think every time he opens his mouth, something extraordinary comes out, usually that we didn’t write.

However, something Brian has learned as a writer for other TV shows is that once there is true happiness between the couple it is either time to move on or cause a conflict, so he decided to let Nelsan have the happy ending he received rather than try to cram another conflict into Season 7 for the sake of more airtime for Lala.

Joe Manganiello (who played werewolf, Alcide Herveaux), would have liked to see the relationship between Alcide and Emma (Chloe Noelle) developed. He also would have liked the storyline between Alcide and his father, Jackson Herveaux (Robert Patrick) kept. However, because of the show losing Alan Ball and then Mark Hudis in quick succession, some storylines in Season 6 were scrapped:

When you’ve got three showrunners in as many episodes, something’s got to give. That something unfortunately was my storyline. There was a plan to — [Jackson] came back for a reason, it just never happened.

Stephen Moyer (who played vampire Bill Compton) would have liked to see an exploration into why Bill and Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) had bad blood between them. As for newcomer Nathan Parsons, he would have liked some of his own flashbacks:

It would have been fun to go back to the ’70s a bit, to go back to the war going on and this hippie love child standing against it, the draft dodger, and how he paid for it

Karolina Wydra would have liked a bit more backstory for her character Violet as well. She thought this would help soothe the backlash against her character.

Which storyline would you have liked to see the writers of True Blood explore if they had more time? Let us know your thoughts by commenting below!

True Blood Finale: A Look Back on… Death

August 24, 2014

TrueBloodNet Takes a Look at All the Memorable Deaths Which Occurred During HBO’s True Blood!

Adele Stachouse (Lois Smith) dies in HBO's True Blood Season 1As far as death goes, for HBO’s True Blood, it’s right up there with sex, blood and gore when it comes to each episode. Here’s our pick for the most memorable death scenes in True Blood:

Adele Stackhouse

It was all the way back in Season 1. Back when we thought our main characters would be safe from the horrors that abounded in Bon Temps. To see Adele Stackhouse (Lois Smith) get attacked and killed was horrific enough. But, then to watch Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) defiantly down the remains of Gran’s pecan pie was True Blood gold!

Maryann Forrester

Maryann was a maenad with a penchant for orgys and eating offal. We spent all of Season 2 hoping for Maryann to be offed so we could go back to looking our True Blood faves in the eye without imagining them naked. Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) came to the rescue, turning himself into a cow before stabbing Maryann to death.

Godric

Eric Northman’s (Alexander Skarsgard) maker, Godric (Allan Hyde) is still a truebie favorite. Being 2000 years old, Godric had become rather tired of his earthly existence and offered himself up as a vampire sacrifice to the Fellowship of the Sun. Sookie watched until the very end when Godric walked out and met the sun.

Rosalyn Harris

Rosalyn (Carolyn Hennesy) was an Authority figure we loved to hate. In Season 5 she got on our nerves just enough that when Sam turned into a fly and flew into her mouth before shapeshifting back into human form, we all cheered harder than we probably should have considering the level of gore!

Governor Truman Burrell

Gov. Burrell (Arliss Howard) is still creating waves into Season 7 with his changes to the laws involving vampires and their estates. However, he met his maker in Season 6 when Bill (Stephen Moyer) ripped his head off. Thinking that was the end of him, we were later horrified to find Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) kissing his cold head lips.

Terry Bellefleur

Along with the death of Gran, Terry’s (Todd Lowe) was probably the saddest. Terry struggled constantly with PTSD. In the end it became too much for him so he hired an old friend to act as a hitman and take him out. If only he’d spoken to Arlene (Carrie Preston) first as she was getting ready to have him glamoured into forgetting his horrific past.

Veronica

250px-VeronicaYou may not recognize the name, but I am sure the image will jog your memory. Yes, Veronica (Marina Benedict) was an on call blood donor to vampires. She bit off more than she could chew however, when Billith decided to break her bones and drain her without even setting a finger on her.

Tara Thornton

Tara (Rutina Wesley) was Sookie’s bestie and managed to die twice on the show. Once when Debbie Pelt (Brit Morgan) accidentally shot her. but that’s okay, because Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) turned her into a vampire. Next up she died for good in the first episode of Season 7 when she lost a fight with a Hep-V infected vampire. However, that still wasn’t the last we saw of her thanks to her mother’s V-induced visions.

Alcide Herveaux

The death of Alcide (Joe Manganiello) was a shock, not only to Team Alcide fans, but to us all. He was hit in the forehead by a random bullet during a scene in which Sookie is trying to lure the Hep-V infected vampires to her. Unfortunately the crazed townfolk of Bon Temps also show up and it spells the end for Sookie’s werewolf boyfriend.

Russell Edgington

As far as villain favorites, Russell Edgington (Denis O’Hare) probably takes the cake! He also manages to be involved with a couple of deaths that deserve and honorable mention. Firstly, that of his lover, Talbot (Theo Alexander), when he is staked from behind by Eric Northman. Russell then goes on to carry the remaining goo that is Talbot in a glass candy jar until Sookie dumps him down the garbage disposal. Then there is that scene we all know and love where Russell rips out the heart of a news presenter while he is on air and reading the news. As for Russell, his death was just as spectacular when he met his true death at the hands of Eric Northman.

The Bellefleur Fairies

Remember that awkward moment when Andy Bellefleur’s (Chris Bauer) fairy lover delivered quadruplets on the billiard table in Merlotte’s? It only took a few short days for those babies to grow up and when they did, they hit the town running. It’s a shame fairy blood is irresistible to vampires and young vamp, Jessica Hamby (Deborah Ann Woll) drained all but one of them in Season 6.

Ms. Suzuki

This is possibly my fave death ever on True Blood! Ms. Suzuki got into a fight with Sarah Newlin in Season 6 and met a gruesome end when Sarah used one of Ms. Suzuki’s own stiletto’s to kill her.

Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) offs Ms. Suzuki with her own shoe in HBO's True Blood Season 6

Truebies – Do you recognize this picture?

August 17, 2014

Unknown framed artwork sent by HBO

Unknown framed artwork sent by HBO

Hello all Truebies! As we wind down the last two episodes of True Blood (SOB!) I received this picture in the mail from HBO. It’s like they knew my walls are lined with fake Dutch master floral paintings! It’s a wonderful gift.. and I can but assume it was from one of the sets because there was ABSOLUTELY NO NOTE!

So I’d like some help.. does anyone remember this picture hanging in a house or office or anywhere? I’d love a little provenance to go with my new treasured picture.

Alcide Rubber Doll

Alcide Rubber Doll

Oh, I also got one of these, no packaging, just tossed into a giant box and sent with no return address. It took me 2 weeks to figure out it was Alcide! LOL What a fun little surprise! Thanks to the powers that be. 🙂 It turns out it’s made by Funko and you can get one of your own from HBO!

July 28, 2014

Sarah Newlin is a Good Person now?

Karolina Wydra stars as vampire Violet in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 7 entitled One Last TimeIt seems Hep-V cured Amber Mills (Natalie Hall) now thinks her devious sister, Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) is a good person. I guess only time will tell – but will there be enough of it going around to save Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) and Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer)? Sookie (Anna Paquin), meanwhile, is on her own hunt for a cure – but who is the ‘unexpected resource‘ she turns to? Could it also be the ‘familiar face‘ resurfacing in Bon Temps? At least Andy (Chris Bauer) and Holly (Lauren Bowles) seem to have worked out Adilyn (Bailey Noble) and Wade (Noah Matthews) are missing – but will they be able to save them from the clutches of Violet (Karolina Wade)? And will Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) be able to locate her fairy on the small amount of blood she ingested earlier in the season?

Synopsis:

*NOTE: This episode has also previously been published with the title One Last Time*

Eric Northman, Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) and Mr. Gus (Will Yun Lee) close in on Sarah Newlin in Dallas. Adilyn and Wade find a temporary haven, and unexpected hospitality. Refusing to accept the inevitable, a desperate Sookie turns to unexpected resources in search of a miracle. Bill recalls the inexorable forces that led him to his marriage 170 years earlier. A familiar face resurfaces in Bon Temps. Sam (Sam Trammell) faces a quandary.

True Blood Quickie: True Blood Season 7 Episode 6 “Karma” Recap

July 28, 2014

Here’s what went down in Episode 6 (entitled Karma) of HBO’s True Blood Season 7:

  • Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and Jessica Hamby (Deborah Ann Woll) cry over Bill Compton's (Stephen Moyer) Hep-V in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 6 (entitled 'Karma')Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) is exhausted but still puts in a good fight with the Yakuza. That is, until Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) is revealed; chained and held captive. So then it’s ‘Hello, countdown to dawn.’
  • Jessica Hamby (Deborah Ann Woll) overhears Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) and finds out he has Hep-V. When Bill leaves to sort out his will, Jess calls Jason (Ryan Kwanten) for moral support. Turns out Jason is post-coital with Violet (Karolina Wydra) – see, we just knew she wouldn’t go down without a fight! Jason thinks Violet is asleep, but, oh no, she’s not. She trashes the place after he leaves.
  • Bill spends a LOT of time at his lawyers office in this episode. It seems every infected vamper wants to put their affairs in order. Bill’s dose of Hep-V is doing weird things too. It seems to be an accelerated version – oh no. But, eventually Bill gets his turn and discovers that, thanks to Governor Burrell’s (Arliss Howard) law changes before he was spectacularly beheaded by Bill in Season 6, he can’t set his affairs straight – looks like Gov. Burrell got his revenge then! In order to sort out the mess, Bill will have to adopt Jessica rather than will her his estate. This will take time though, and more than Bill has. Apparently the lawyer can fast track Bill’s court proceedings – for 10 million cool ones! So Bill tries to glamour her into submission rather than being extorted. When that doesn’t work he kills her and her vampire protector. Way to go Bill!
  • Finally we get to meet True Blood’s new bad guy, Gus (Will Yun Lee). Turns out he runs Yakanoma Corporation. These are the guys who make Tru Blood. And since Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) infected the supply, the poor guy is broke. So he arrives with only three minutes to spare before dawn to strike up a deal with Eric and Pam. It seems he wants Sarah’s head on a spike. After Eric and Gus haggle over the fine print, Pam finally jumps in and talks some sense – right as their faces are starting to burn! A deal is finally brokered.
  • So what of Sarah Newlin? Seems she is as predictable as Pam thought, and heads straight for her sister’s house. Amber (Natalie Hall) jumps right on her and attempts to feed off her, but gets sick and passes out instead. When Amber finally comes too, the sisters have it out and Sarah fesses up to the fact there was a Hep-V antidote! YAY! *fist pumps the air* The only problem is she DRANK it, therefore making her the antidote. Yikes!
  • Andy (Chris Bauer) busts his daughter, Adilyn (Bailey Noble) in bed with Holly’s (Lauren Bowles) son, Wade (Noah Matthews). Turns into an argument between him and Holly, one which Arlene (Carrie Preston) has to sort out later on. Things go a little pear-shaped though when Holly and Andy go to talk to their kids and find out they are actually at Fort Bellefleur rather than at home. Uh-oh, I have a bad feeling about this.
  • Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) has a hangover. That doesn’t stop her brother from turning up and getting her out of bed to go and visit Jess. Once there, Jessica spills the beans about Bill and Sookie has a moment when she realizes Bill ingested her blood recently. Could she be the one who infected Bill? After a trip to the doctors and much soul searching with Jason, it turns out she might have.
  • Meanwhile, with all this soul searching, Jason realizes he needs to dump Violet and goes home to tell her right away. Only to discover how badly she has trashed the house. She has also left him a note breaking it off. Really Violet? What happened to all the ‘You are mine‘ business? Something just isn’t sitting right…
  • Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) and his Aunty Lettie Mae (Adina Porter) decide to drink James’ (Nathan Parsons) blood. Lala is doing this to disprove the visions Lettie Mae has been having. Except they totally wind up in the exact same trip and Lala is now convinced Tara (Rutina Wesley) is trying to tell them something when they wind up at her childhood home with Tara digging up the backyard. What is she looking for? We don’t find out, however, as Lettie Mae’s husband turns up to spoil their fun. In the end, Lettie Mae tells him where to go and I can feel a flashback scene coming on sometime soon…
  • Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) gets an ultimatum from Nicole (Jurnee Smollett-Bell). Seems she wants him to stop being the Mayor of Crazy and go live with her family instead. Wonder which option Sam will pick?
  • Remember how I thought something was up with Violet? Seems she is hankering for a taste of fairy. She has tracked down Adilyn and Wade at Fort Bellefleur and tells them about a ‘safe house’ she can take them to rather than them risking a vampire attack out there in the open. Oh crap, Adilyn.
  • Eric, Pam and Gus arrive at Amber’s house – to find she is completely healed. Oh, yeah baby!
  • Bill returns home to find Sookie and Jessica sobbing over his Hep-V.

True Blood Quickie: True Blood Season 7 Episode 5 “Lost Cause” Recap

July 21, 2014

Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) and Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) get their Texan on in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 5 (entitled 'Lost Cause' and previously entitled 'Return to Oz')Here’s what went down in Episode 5 (entitled Lost Cause, but also previously titled as Return to Oz) of HBO’s True Blood Season 7:

  • Kenya (Tonya Wright) is dead! Yeah, totally missed that last week.
  • Willa Burrell (Amelia Rose Blaire) is pissed as hell at Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) and wants to be released. Eric strikes a deal with her; tell him everything she knows about Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) and he will. Turns out Sarah is in Dallas – and she has a sister who is a vampire!
  • Poor Ginger (Tara Buck) – she’s a sex slave to Eric, but without the sex. No matter now much she begs, Eric will neither take her to Dallas with them or have his wicked way with her.
  • Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) returns to an empty house with an empty heart – lucky Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) is there, ready to throw her a big party – is this the feast that Riley Smith (Keith the vampire) was hinting at? Lafayette wants a celebration of Alcide’s (Joe Manganiello) and Tara’s (Rutina Wesley) lives rather than a gloomy funeral. Alcide’s dad, Jackson (Robert Patrick), agrees with Lala, right after he bags up all of Alcide’s stuff (until Sookie is ready to deal with it).
  • Sarah’s sister, Amber Mills (Natalie Hall), has Hep-V – and wants her sister dead, so agrees to help Eric anyway she can. Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) totally wants wants to be besties with this vamp now.
  • Lettie Mae (Adina Porter) wants to go to Sookie’s party but her husband won’t let her go on account of all the booze and vampire blood. Can anyone say allergy pills? He is sleeping like a babe in no time.
  • Bill (Stephen Moyer) has a whole heap of civil war flashbacks while at the party. It seems he was a southern deserter who ended up fighting rather than risk his family anymore. Interestingly, we learn that Jane Bodehouse (Patricia Bethune) is a descendant from the saloon owner in Bill’s time.
  • Violet (Karolina Wydra) spends this entire episode being unlikable. This results in Jason (Ryan Kwanten) ending up in the arms of Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) again. And why would Jess let that happen? After all, she has a boyfriend, right? Wrong. Turns out she caught James (Nathan Parsons) in the… erm… back seat of her car with Lafayette.
  • But at least she made up with Andy Bellefleur (Chris Bauer) before the party when to hell for her.
  • Speaking of Andy, he finally proposes to Holly (Lauren Bowles). Of course this is totally the funniest awkward proposal ever. Thankfully Holly says yes – even if it is before he even has a chance to pop the question!
  • Eric and Pam dress the part of socialite republicans before attending the gala event that Sarah Newlin’s parents will be attending. Turns out Eric is now at Stage 2 of Hep-V. He is stoic about it – even if Pam is barely holding it all together.
  • Keith turns up at Sookie’s party and Arlene (Carrie Preston) goes all gaga over him. Sookie steps in to remind Keith to turn his sexiness down and he lets Sookie know that Arlene is the prettiest thing he has seen in 300 years – and that he will see her later on in her dreams.
  • After that, Sookie and Arlene chat about losing loved ones to stray bullets and Alcide’s dad listens in before leaving Alcide’s jacket behind for Sookie to find once everyone has gone.
  • Lettie Mae arrives right at the end of a speech Jackson is giving in honor of his son. Lala tries to send her home but Sookie asks if Lettie Mae would like to say a few words about Tara. Which she does – with grace – is she finally changing?
  • Bill seems sad throughout this entire episode.
  • Sookie is drunk and in everyone’s head after that. Seems everyone loves Sookie now. That is until she overhears something Lettie Mae is muttering. Something about Willa and vampire blood… Oh no! Lettie Mae stabs Willa before Sam (Sam Trammell) can step in and stop her. Willa is okay – she’s a vampire after all – but Lala takes his aunt away before she can do anymore harm.
  • Nicole (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) is totally not down with celebrating the dead and after much putting up with it all, finally cracks. Sam has to take her home.
  • Back in Dallas, and we find Sarah has holed up her mother in the ladies and is attempting to get back into her good books. Seems the Yukuza incident a few episodes ago has really shaken up Sarah. Meanwhile, Eric has glamoured Sarah’s dad. But before he can get any information out of him the damn Yukuza arrive and start shooting, so it’s R.I.P. Mr and Mrs Newlin. Sarah is running for her life after that – and runs straight into Eric Northman! Before he has a chance to strangle the life right out of her, he has to take out the Yakuza. Wonder if Sarah will be spared – she might even be able to help out with a cure for Hep-V? Seems we’ll have to wait until next week to find out.
  • Finally, we end this episode with Bill getting out of the bathtub. Oh no, now we know why he was all mopey at Sookie’s party – he has Hep-V too!

True Blood Season 7: Episode 1 Brings the First Fatality

June 6, 2014

Which True Blood Regular Will Bite the Dust:

Group still of HBOs True Blood Season 7With mere weeks to go until the premiere of HBO’s True Blood Season 7, news is coming in fast and furious – and the latest is a shocker! According to not only TV Guide, but MTV.com, one True Blood cast member will die straight up in Episode 1. While neither source will spill the beans on who it is, TV Guide had this to say:

When the HBO drama returns, the Hep-V-infected vampires that were poised to attack Bon Temps arrive and the bloodbath quickly ensues. Unfortunately, the casualties are not just redshirts. In fact, one character’s fate is so jaw-dropping that you’ll spend the rest of the episode wondering if what you just watched was a dream. It’s not, which clearly means all bets are off in this final season.

So someone will die quickly, and probably brutally at the start of the episode. Who could it be? MTV.com follows up with:

Oh and yes, the rumors are true — as TVGuide confirmed, a major character bites it in the show’s opening moments, with very little fanfare. It’s a brutal fate for someone who has been an integral part of the series for years, and it instantly sets the tone for the rest of the season. No one is safe. No one.

While neither are giving much away, there is still plenty of clues.

So Here’s What We DO Know:

  • The death happens very quickly. Considering the fact that Season 6 finished with the Hep V vamps showing up at Bellefleurs (formerly Merlotte’s) and the knowledge that Season 7 will pick up directly from this point, it will have to be someone we saw at the end of Season 6. There were plenty of our True Blood regulars present. Right off the bat we see Arlene (Carrie Preston), Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten), Jessica Hamby (Deborah Ann Woll), Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) and his pregnant girlfriend, Nicole (Jurnee Smollett-Bell), Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis), Tara (Rutina Wesley) and her mother, Lettie Mae (Adina Porter). In fact, everyone seems to make an appearance! It could be any one of these characters.
  • It’s a character that is integral to the show. This narrows it down some. It’s unlikely then to be Lettie Mae. While she has been there from the start, she has not been a regular cast member. Add into the mix the fact that she has just been upgraded to series regular, it seem very unlikely she’ll die in the first episode. Holly (Lauren Bowles) is another who seems fairly safe as well. Others such as Violet (Karolina Wydra), Nicole, James the vampire and Willa Burrell (Amelia Rose Blaire) also seem to be off the hook.
  • The trailers release more information. So far we have two trailers for True Blood Season 7. While we have been lamenting the glaringly absent Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard), the clips, once rewatched, now shed some light on who will die in Episode 1. With the death occurring at Bellefleurs at the start of the episode, it means all those trailer scenes shown in broad daylight drastically shorten the list for us. We see plenty of clips with Sookie (Anna Paquin), Alcide (Joe Manganiello), Andy Bellefleur (Chris Bauer), Jason and Sam. Considering this, they have to be safe. There is also footage of Sookie and Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) talking about what has happened in Bon Temps. So he has to be safe as well. Then there is a very brief snippet of Lafayette wearing completely different clothes to what we saw him in at the end of Season 6 – yep, he has to be in the clear as well.

 

So, Who’s Left?

  • Jessica. While she is absent from Bellefleurs when the vampires attack, it is possible she may rush off to help. Also, add into the mix the fact that there are snippets of Jessica and a shadowy figure in the second trailer video, and suddenly I am getting very fearful for her well being.
  • Arlene. She has been there from the start, yet she doesn’t seem to appear in the trailers – could she be the one to die?
  • Tara. She is another True Blood regular that seems to be absent from the teaser videos. Could she die all over again?

Let me know who you think will die in Episode 1 of HBO’s True Blood Season 7 by commenting below!
