Video: HBO Keeps True Blood Fans Eager For Season 5 with Teaser Clips

May 29, 2012

Waiting Sucks and HBO Keeps Fans Wanting More:

Season 5 poster RomanEarly in the life of its series True Blood, HBO hit upon the simple but clever tag line of ‘Waiting Sucks’. Now, as anticipation over the June 10th premiere of Season 5 grows, fans find that they ‘Crave More’. HBO has fueled the excitement with titillating teaser videos; some provide glimpses behind the scenes, while others are simply humorous promotion.

Two recently released teasers provide peeks into two separate story lines. Both videos give hints as to what to expect from characters and plot, while still managing to raise additional questions that make fans eager to tune in to the show.

One of these two recent videos features Sam (Sam Trammell) and Luna (Janina Gavankar). Sitting on a sofa, Luna cries while Sam tries to lend comfort. The dialog tells fans that someone has died mysteriously. An unexpected, unidentified sound captures their attention just as the scene ends on a menacing note. Who died? How did they die? Are Sam and Luna in danger, too? What was that sound?

What do you think?

Another recent teaser video has Terry (Todd Lowe) and Patrick (Scott Foley) being held at gunpoint and handcuffed. They know this person, but fans don’t – yet. The scene ends with the unknown character asking if anything had followed them there. Who is the new character? Why is he cuffing Patrick and Terry? What is it that might have followed them?

Any guesses?

HBO also uses humor in its teaser videos. ‘Don’t Cry, It’s Back’ uses bloody tears and scenes of character anguish to promote Season 5. The video is a montage of True Blood characters crying. The clips are assembled in a way that makes it seem they are sad over the lack of new True Blood episodes.

Which one is your favorite?

Latest Clip Features Terry and Arlene:

New True Blood Waiting Sucks teaser features Terry BellefleurHBO has released the newest teaser in its Waiting Sucks campaign, which showcases an evening scene in the home of Terry Bellefleur (Todd Lowe) and Arlene Fowler (Carrie Preston). In what looks like a typical family evening of doing chores and napping on the couch while watching TV, something dark and ominous is actually transpiring in the background. Watch the clip below.

What do you think Truebies? Is it just season four witchery or has Rene sent Arlene a spooky message from the other side about Terry accepting their unborn child as his own?

Waiting Sucks: Pam

Pam faces off with a witch to help her makerEarlier this week HBO released the next clip in its Waiting Sucks campaign and this particular scene takes place after Eric (Alexander Skarsgård) falls victim to “amnesia” and Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) is on a mission (in a super sassy outfit!) to get her maker back to normal. However, it’s immediately obvious that no matter how threatening Pam is to Marnie (Fiona Shaw), the witch isn’t planning to reverse the spell she’s put on the vampire Sherriff. Watch the clip below.

From the sounds of that laugh at the end of the clip, Marnie is going to be quite a handful this season. And it sounds like Shaw is just the person to play her. According to Lauren Bowles, who plays Merlotte‘s waitress Holly, Shaw is a very focused actor:

“If there’s one thing Fiona Shaw could never be accused of as an actor, that would be phoning it in. I have seen the woman (on two hours sleep) learn an entire monologue in Latin and perform it with faultless elocution that would have made the Pope proud. She’s what you would call a master craftsman. I’m not sure if I want her to be my mother or my mentor or maybe my lover.”

What do you think Truebies? Does Marnie look like a believable witch? And how about that face-off?! Pam against Marnie, Lafayette, Jesus, and Tara? Guns and candles and a salt circle? Sounds like a perfect combination for some craziness.

First Look at Luna and Sam

HBO is ramping up the anticipation for True Blood season 4! We’ve already seen what Eric (Alexander Skarsgård), Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll), Hoyt (Jim Parrack), and Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) have been up to. But now it’s Sam’s (Sam Trammell) turn. Truebies may recall that Sam Trammell said that he might be getting a love interest. But is Luna (Janina Gavankar) the one? Either way, she’s got some major issues, admitting to Sam she has a stalkery werewolf ex-boyfriend.

Watch the clip below and let us know how you think True Blood Season 4 is shaping up:
