True Blood Season 7: Trailer #2 – Still No Eric Northman

June 1, 2014

HBO Teaser Video Shows Plenty of Bill Compton, But Eric is Still Elusive:

Alexander Skarsgard stars (hopefully) as Eric Northman in HBO's True blood Season 7Well, HBO released the second official trailer video for True Blood Season 7 – and, yep, there’s still not a single sighting of Eric Northman (played by Alexander Skarsgard). They have upped the level of Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) appearances though and we’re not really sure what that all means yet.

This doesn’t mean the trailer video is boring though – quite the opposite in fact! There is PLENTY of action occurring from the very first second, right up until the close at 55 seconds. Here’s a quick break down for you:

  • Sookie (Anna Paquin) seems to think she is the only person in town who knows so much about vampires and then concludes that a war has erupted.
  • Speaking of wars, it seems there will be a battle between who will win Sookie over in the end.
  • There is a whole bunch of happy shots – and this would indicate that something bad is probably just around the corner…
  • Pam (Kristin Bayer van Straten) appears in brief snippets that give away absolutely nothing.
  • A blonde woman is apparently being taken against her will – is it Ginger (Tara Buck) perhaps?
  • Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) is eager to let people know that he belongs ‘here’ – just where ‘here’ is though could be anyone’s guess.
  • That bit where we saw all happy scenes, yeah, I was right, it all goes down the crapper towards the end of this trailer with people being bitten and the Bellefleur’s looking like a bomb zone.
  • There is a bomb exploding in front of Bill at what could possibly be Fangtasia.
  • Bill tells Sookie that there will be some sort of a decent, and, as a result, ‘they’ will be greatly outnumbered. On what, who or where, we don’t know yet. It does seem that Bill is trying to make up his behavior towards Sookie in Season 6 here though…

You can check out the full trailer below. Let me know if I missed anything important or what your theories are for True Blood Season 7!

VIDEO: True Blood Season 7 – The Next Tantalizing Trailer!

May 17, 2014

Truebie Fans Get Another True Blood Tease from HBO:

Kristin Bauer van Straten stars as Pam in HBOs True Blood Season 7 promo trailer 1It wasn’t that long ago that we got to see the very first sneak peek of HBO’s True Blood Season 7! Now we need to hold onto our hats for the next wicked tease. This clip is interspliced with clips from the very start of True Blood as well as plenty of new stuff to pore over. Here’s the breakdown for you:

  • There is a distinct reference to the fact that ‘we can’t go back to the way things were’ – this might be a little unsettling to those fans that enjoyed the return of a quieter season with Season 6. Are things about to get overly crazy all over again?
  • Remember when Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) told Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) she was safe with him? Yeah, well right after we have a flashback of that, we get a flash of True Blood Season 7 – and it’s of people being ripped out of a car and and radio reports of a ‘bloodbath’ – are they implying Bill is deceiving Sookie again this year? Notably, there is footage to suggest this bloodbath may have occurred at the newly named Bellefleurs (formerly Merlotte’s) since there is a scene of the establishment at the very end and it doesn’t look good at all.
  • Next we find a flashback to Sookie’s gran – is this one of the characters from the past that will return in Season 7?
  • Wait – is that Sookie lying lifelessly on the ground???
  • Andy Bellefleur (Chris Bauer) is still not happy with Bill. It seems Jessica Hamby (Deborah Ann Woll) is trying to make amends though with her promising Adilyn (Bailey Noble) not to hurt her again.
  • OMG! There’s finally a flash of Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) – is she happy, sad, relieved, mad? You can’t really tell since it’s all the same to her. Speaking of, is that her standing in front of some flames…
  • Is that a katana?
  • And is Violet (Karolina Wydra) finally letting Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) ravish her?
  • Sookie is begging ‘No, No, No!‘ There is blood on her too – who is dying in her arms?
  • Is that a pit of dead people Sookie, Jason, Andy, Sam (Sam Trammell) and Alcide (Joe Manganiello) are standing over?
  • There is still no mention or sighting of Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) in this clip – or did I miss it?

Well, that’s a lot of consume in a minute and a half – why not watch the whole clip… over and over again, and then let me know what else I missed by commenting below!

Will There be a True Blood Season 8?

August 27, 2013

Brian Buckner is in Negotiations Over True Blood Season 7 – Is This the End?

Anna Paquin stars as Sookie Stackhouse in HBO's True Blood Season 7 - will there be a True Blood Season 8 though?Some trubie fans were initially surprised to hear that HBO’s True Blood would be renewed for a seventh season. Many citing the confusing story lines as the reason why they were turning off. New showrunner, Brian Buckner, however, took a jumble of story lines left over from True Blood Season 5 and streamlined it into a Season 6 which made many fans tune back in. With the shock ending of the Season 6 finale, many fans are now claiming they won’t be back to see how Brian Buckner fixes everything again.

But will True Blood Season 7 be the final season?

Brian Buckner is not planning to give everything away but he did have this to say to TVLine about the possibility of a True Blood Season 8:

That conversation is happening, but we don’t have an answer yet. I’m being told that I will know – which doesn’t mean that I will tell everybody. But I will know when the writers resume in the room [next month] whether or not we’re wrapping it up or not.

HBO president, Michael Lombardo, has also stated in the past that True Blood will run for as long as there is a story to tell.

With the writers heading back on September 3rd to put their heads together for the Season 7 story lines, it is anyone’s guess as to whether they will be told to wrap things up.

I guess we’ll just have to wait until the announcement in made sometime during Season 7 – #WaitingSucks!

Do you think fans will get to see True Blood Season 8? Let us know in the comments below.

True Blood Season 7: Zombies vs. Vampires?

August 25, 2013

True Blood Season 6 Ended With a Scene Reminiscent of AMC’s The Walking Dead:

Will it be Zombies vs. Vampires in True Blood Season 7?Is that what HBO have in store for us in True Blood Season 7?

Many fans were left scratching their heads and wondering if they had tuned into AMC’s The Walking Dead when the very last scene of True Blood Season 6 aired. A rabid band of vampires were approaching Bellefleur’s (previously called Merlotte’s) where a large group of Bon Temps residents were attending a special social organized by Sam Merlotte, the new mayor of Bon Temps. This group of ravenous vampires are infected with Hep V. They are sickly with blood running down their chins and moans a-plenty between them. With this, fans immediately took to social media to draw the comparison between the vampires of True Blood and the zombies of The Walking Dead.

But is this what True Blood showrunner, Brian Buckner, has in store for Season 7?

And why are these Hep V infected vampires living longer than Nora (Lucy Griffiths) did when she was first infected?

Here’s what Brian Buckner had to say to TVLine’s Michael Ausiello:

We did say that the virus had mutated, and we get to decide what those mutations are. Perhaps the demand for human blood goes up and that’s the only thing that keeps vampires with Hep V alive… That’s another reason for the time passage. Just like bacteria mutates and that’s why there are antibiotic-resistant strains. So what applied to Nora doesn’t necessarily apply to this gang. And they’re not zombies… In my somewhat limited zombie-genre experience, zombies are not organized. They’re just hunting-killing machines. So what was meant to come across there was that they’re organized, they’re in a formation, they’re hunting, they’re sentient, they can talk. They still have intellect.

Buckner also confirmed with Entertainment Weekly that the Hep V infected vampires are a little different to the vampires we are used to on True Blood:

They’re weaker and driven by a need to eat in a way that the vampires that we’ve come to know are not. They have to drink human blood in larger quantities and more frequently than before.

It also appears that there was concern among the writers that the last scene of True Blood Season 6 would draw The Walking Dead comparisons, something they didn’t necessarily want. They really didn’t want fans thinking they were jumping on the zombie bandwagon. However, with sick vampires on the loose, mutating and looking for human prey, it was hard not to create a scene like this. There was, however, a definite reassurance that True Blood Season 7 would not follow the path of the zombie.

What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.

SPOILER: True Blood Season 7-Will Alcide and Sookie Live Happily Ever After?

August 22, 2013

Will Alcide and Sookie Become True Blood’s Faerie Tale Romance?:

True Blood's Anna Paquin and Joe Manganiello as Sookie and Alcide

Credit: HBO.com

The Season 6 Finale of True Blood flashed forward 6 months and showed a very happy and in love, Sookie(Anna Paquin) and Alcide(Joe Manganiello). Sookie has sworn off vampires(for maybe the 100th time) so we are sure that Sookie and Alcide will live happily ever after…NOT! Though Alcide is the suitor closest to a human that Sookie has fallen for in the 6 seasons(with the exception of Sam), it makes sense that the storyline would put these two together(since Sam is no longer available).

TVline.com got an exclusive interview with True Blood Show Runner, Brian Buckner and he dished on the Season 7 Alcide/Sookie Scoop!

“The show has flirted with a Sookie and Alcide romance for years. Why was now the right time to pull the trigger on that?
In a world where almost everybody is a creature of some kind, Alcide is the most human of all of our creatures. Now, that’s not to say that it was his most human season. We all felt the same thing that the audience was feeling, which was that Alcide needed to come back to center. So it was that as much as anything else. And it was also that Sookie’s going to put her money where her mouth is and say “no more vampires.” She got into it with Warlow without knowing he was a vampire, so she was trying. But this shows growth for Sookie. I mean, I suppose he’s a hunk, so at least she’s still getting her piece. [Laughs] He’s the most normal, most human, most down-to-earth of any of her suitors. To me, with Eric gone and off on his own story going forward, I think it’s a pretty obvious triangle we’re setting up between Bill and Sookie and Alcide.”

To see the entire interview check out the link below!

I only have two issue with the Sookie/Alcide love story…Didn’t Eric glamour Alcide into never touching Sookie? Wasn’t Sookie supposed to repulse Alcide? I may have missed the un-glamour moment…What do you think Truebies? Is there a contradiction here? Number two, I love the Eric/Sookie/Bill love triangle…not sure the Alcide/Sookie/Bill triangle is going to do it for me!

SPOILER: True Blood’s Season 7-What’s Next For Bill?

August 21, 2013

Where Does Bill Go From Here?:

True Blood's Stephen Moyer as Bill Compton

Credit: HBO.com

True Blood’s Season 6 took Bill(Stephen Moyer) on a intense journey, as we saw the depth of his character continue to progress. He was the egomancial Billith, then the concerned Father, then the attempted Martyr, and by the finale we saw the side of Bill that we all fell in love with in Season 1.  Billith is no more, and yet the experience will surely live in him and impact future choices he makes. But what can we expect from Season 7? TVline got the dirt with Show Runner Brian Buckner, where he finally had the opportunity to speak out after the Season 6 finale.

When Asked if “Season 7 would be a Reset of sorts for Bill” Brian responds:

“Absolutely. We don’t want Bill to be an a—hole. The question we’re going to be asking this coming season is: Can Bill be forgiven? Because he made his intentions clear. I think Bill doesn’t have a trick up his sleeve this time. I think he’s genuine. The real question is about forgiveness.”

I don’t think that Bill should be the only one headed on a pursuit of forgiveness, after all Faerie Princess Sookie Stackhouse(Anna Paquin) did try to stake him…

So Truebies what do you think? Will Bill get the forgiveness that he seeks in Season 7? Let us know in the comments below!

True Blood Finale Quickie: True Blood Season 6 Episode 10 “Radioactive” Recap

August 19, 2013

Alexander Skarsgard stars as Eric Northman in HBO's True Blood Season 6 finale, Episode 10, entitled 'Radioactive'Whoa! WTF just happened? Yeah, it’s the finale of HBO’s True Blood Season 6.Episode 10, entitled Radioactive, is certainly a nail-biter – and for many it just may be a deal breaker unless a certain something is fixed within the first five minutes of True Blood Season 7, Episode 1!

Be warned SPOILERS and LANGUAGE abound in this recap!

This is what went down (can’t believe this is the last one):

  • Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and Alcide Herveaux (Joe Manganiello) go walking after Terry Bellefleur’s (Todd Lowe) funeral. It seems Alcide isn’t the mindless beefcake Sookie expected!
  • So while they are walking and talking (and is that flirting I see?), they bump into a whole pile of sparkling Twilight wannabes day-walking vampires. Sookie finally realises that Billith (Stephen Moyer) was right. She doesn’t have time to dwell on this when she spies Jason (Ryan Kwanten) among them
  • After it gets a little fangy between Jason, Sookie and Violet (Karolina Wydra), things are amended with a kiss – between Sookie and Violet! How awkward for Jason: the ultimate male fantasy – except, dude, that’s your sister!
  • For the first time ever we see Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) genuinely happy – and with Sookie nonetheless!
  • That happy high doesn’t last for long though and Pam very quickly turning into the snark we know and love so much. She decides to hunt down Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) and leaves Tara (Rutina Wesley) in charge of Willa (Amelia Rose Blaire)
  • Tara looks ridiculous in a straw hat
  • Sookie also looks silly in hatsAnna Paquin stars as Sookie Stackhouse in HBO's True Blood Season 6 finale, Episode 10, entitled 'Radioactive'
  • Sookie returns to Fairyland and an eagerly waiting Warlow (Robert Kazinsky). It seems, now that all Sookie’s vampire friends are safe, she can’t see the point in an immediate fae wedding and vampire turning. But Warlow is pissy – especially after he spent all that time making a maypole while she was gone – so he slaps her! WTF?!
  • Warlow is one badass monster! He should be horsewhipped on the spot for that slap. But, oh no, it gets worse! He gets all nasty-pants by choking her and then tying her to the maypole. Sookie tries to nuclear-fairy-ball him but he’s too fast and ties her hands up and then proceeds to FEED off her! See, this is why you should never trust a guy who’s killed your parents – not matter WHAT the reason!
  • Billith begins the long road to redemption in this episode – so glad to see this :-D
  • Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) is very good at whipping that ‘poor me‘ attitude right out of Bill when he explains Sookie is going to be turned and it’s all his fault
  • Jason is REAL pissed when Bill and Jessica ‘fess up about Sookie – and I don’t blame him one little bit! But, oh, I do LOVE to see Jason on a mission!
  • So Adilyn (Bailey Noble) is needed to get into Fairyland – bet Andy Bellefleur (Chris Bauer) is going to love that idea – NOT! But in the end he agrees and him and Jason weapon up and head to the church with Bill, Jessica and Violet
  • Sometimes you just have to scare the crap out of a fairy to get to use her magic – I’m sure Violet is sorry Adilyn ;-)
  • The rescue of Sookie gets a bit full on. This is what goes down: Adilyn gets them into Fairyland, Violet releases Sookie. Bills stakes Warlow, everyone (except Bill and Warlow) escape back to Bon Temps and batten down the hatches at Sookie’s house (because a house is SO much stronger than a 6,000 year old fairy-vampire who is pissed), Violet gives Sookie her blood to heal her
  • But wait – Warlow just walks right out of that nasty staking mess, kicks Bill and flies off. Uh-ohSookie (Anna Paquin) finds out the truth about Warlow (Robert Kazinsky) in HBO's True Blood Season 6 finale, Episode 10, entitled 'Radioactive'
  • Yeah, that old southern house just doesn’t hold up against Warlow. Within seconds, he has Andy and Violet unconscious, Jason, Andy and Adilyn locked up in Eric’s old hidey hole (sealing it up with his fairy magic) and is up those stairs and choking Sookie all over again!
  • Now somehow Adilyn manages to release them all – even though her magic is not nearly 6,000 years old
  • So Sookie is trying to get her nuclear-fairy-ball happening, but you know what happens when you’re put under pressure – she just can’t get it up!
  • Luckily Niall (Rutger Hauer) decides at that moment to reach through from the stinking otherworld and grab Warlow
  • Jason manages to stake Warlow and kill him for good this time – wonder what made his stake better than all the rest?
  • Jason and Sookie pull Niall free from the otherworld and it’s all looking good…
  • … except now that Warlow is dead, the fairy day-walking ability wears off all the vampires. Lucky for them it’s night time…
  • … except no one told Eric who is sunbathing naked in Sweden
  • So for a split second we get to see the great Viking’s junk before he bursts into flames
  • WTF?!
  • Seriously?!
  • Flames?????????????
  • Dead Viking?????????????
  • HBO are you mad????????
  • While, technically, we don’t see Northman die, it is not looking good for him unless Pam can get to him in time
  • And now it’s six months later and we still don’t know the fate of Eric Northman or Pam, but it seems Sookie and Alcide are now a couple
  • Bill is a famous vampire author and it seems the only real authority on Hep V
  • 1/8 of a vampires are estimated to be infected with Hep V. Humans are carriers but it’s not a death sentence to them. Apparently it’s an unstable virus too and the mutations are erratic
  • Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) is the mayor – WTF?!
  • Sam goes to church talks to the Bon Temps community and encourages them to go to Merlotte’s for a free ‘social’ – only catch is that you should try and hook up with a vampire there for your own protection. Pretty sure Sam in not getting re-elected as a resultAdina Porter stars as Lettie Mae in HBO's True Blood Season 6 finale, Episode 10, entitled 'Radioactive'
  • Tara’s mum, Lettie Mae (Adina Porter) is mega creepy when trying to make amends with her daughter. I know she means well and all, but seriously? Creepy
  • Hot vampire James (Luke Grimes) can sing
  • Jessica tries to apologise to Andy for eating all his kids (LOL! It took her six months to do it – yeah, Andy’s that scary!) – surprise, surprise, Andy’s not impressed. In fact he pulls a gun on her and it looks like it’s all over red rover for Jessica Hamby. But, wait, nope, he shuts the door in her face. Phew!
  • Sookie and Alcide leave Merlotte’s early, only to be holed up by Bill. It seems he’s offering his protection to Sookie all over again – can anyone say ‘deja vu’? Sookie declines – but not before Alcide scents a mob of hungry, sick, moaning zombies vampires approaching the town!

    The vampires return to Bon Temps in HBO's True Blood Season 6 finale, Episode 10, entitled 'Radioactive'

  • Say hello to #WaitingSucks because it’s the credits now and a hell of a long wait until HBO’s True Blood Season 7!

So what did you think of True Blood’s finale episode, Radioactive? Are you going to tune in Season 7 to see if HBO save Eric from the true death?

True Blood’s Michael McMillian Says Farewell to Steve Newlin

August 17, 2013

Michael McMillian Talks about the Demise of Steve Newlin:

True Blood's Michael McMillian

Photo Credit: HBO.com

In a recent interview with Vulture.com, HBO‘s True Blood Michael McMillian(Steve Newlin) reveals his feelings on the departure of Steve Newlin.  In Episode 9 of True Blood Steve Newlin meets the sun at the hands of a VERY pissed off Eric.  Check out some of my favourite questions here!

 

Do you think he was gay, or bisexual? Because there must have been something between him and Sarah at one point.
Yeah, well, Anna Camp and I used to talk about it, and we still do. We think that they still had a bit of a kinky sex life there for a while. I think they married young, and they were both virgins when they got married, and I think she was just trying to keep Steve happy for a long time. I think there was probably some intense dom/sub play going on in the bedroom. I think Sarah was willing to perform certain acts for Steve to keep her husband happy.”

 

Did you see this coming for Steve? How much advance warning did you get?
Steve was really digging himself into a hole this season. Steve Newlin is the Jabba the Hutt of the True Blood universe. He has a very important place in the mythology, but he’s not going to help Luke Skywalker blow up the Death Star, you know? And especially seeing how the story was going, and Steve taking his place as a villain again and causing so much damage? If you think about it, Luna died because Steve and Russell kidnapped Emma. Pam was outted as Eric’s progeny because of him. Nora dies because of him. And he just wasn’t going to make it through. But Steve really dies at the hands of both Eric and Sarah.”

 

Who was Steve’s maker? He didn’t know her name …
I’d love to answer the question, but the truth is, I don’t know! And I’m not sure if the show is ever going to answer it or not. At one point, we were going to find out last season, and it was written out in the script, but they scratched it out.”
