True Blood Season 3 Spoiler: Sookie, Alcide and Gran

April 8, 2010 by  

Today Michael Ausiello gives us some more True Blood season 3 spoiler scoops this time regarding Sookie, Alcide and Gran!  Michael answers some fans’ questions about the recent photo of Sookie and Alcide and if we will see Gran again on True Blood. Here are the questions and answers below:

Question: I’m sort of obsessed with your First Look photo of Alcide and Sookie on True Blood. What exactly is going on in the scene? They look a little, um, startled. —Barry

Ausiello: Their search for Bill takes them to a werewolf bar in Jackson, Mississippi — “hence the howling wolf silhouetted behind them,” notes exec producer Alan Ball. “They’re doing a little amateur sleuthing and they’re sort of surprised by what they find.” My guess? This is what they find.

Question: Any chance Lois Smith could return to True Blood as Sookie’s dearly departed Gram? —Carly

Ausiello: “There’s a chance,” replies Alan Ball. “I don’t think she’s gonna come back and go like, ‘Oh, you know what? I’m not dead!’ But she certainly can appear in flashbacks or in visions or perhaps there’s a different reality that someone might go into.” I could be mistaken, but that last option smells like a major spoiler. And believe you me, I know what a major spoiler smells like. (For the record, a major spoiler smells like a mix of eggs, cookie dough, and freshly-cut grass).

    Its quite apparent that with Bill gone Sookie may be in danger!
    Bill may be able to sense when she is in danger but Will Not be able to help her,much like when she was trapped in the basement with that big guy. With Bill gone,There will be many attempts ..I’m sure, For others to try and utilize or take advantage of Sookie’s unique abilties! Eric,I’m sure will be Only Too willing to try and exploit her for this as well as others,I’m sure! Will Alcide be of some assistance to her? Can he stand against Eric for her? With Tara,Sam & Jason off on their own adventure, Who will be there for Sookie? guess we will just have to see!

    It would be awesome to see Gran come back throughout the show. I was devistated that she had to die so soon.

      I liked Gran,too I thought her character gave a warm,family feel to the show. The 1st season had more of a sense of mystery and a who-done-it kind of feel to it. The murder mystery aspect worked very in you didnt really know Who might be the killer! The identity of the kller was something I could never have guessed! Just good writing! Season 2 just wasnt the same
      Bill and Sookie’s trip to Dallas to search for the missing vampire should have been the focus of the season at least More that it was.Instead the writers decided to give Maryann more of a storyline than what was neccessary! Her whole storyline dwarfed the rest of the show! Anyway,Hope S3 will be better
      More character development for the principle actors!

    I like the different reality scenario. Perhaps TB2 was from a certain person’s point of view and not necessarily reality. Especially the Season Finale. Oh could we hope.

    Yes, Lois Smith is well liked by Alan Ball and all of us viewers. It would be totally awesome if she could reappear to Sookie in visions or dreams.

    65 days until season three v-ddiction continues.

    I really hope they do Gran flashbacks. If AB follows this part of the books, Gran will definitely be back in flashbacks, she has her own skeletons in the closet full of secrets. *crossing fingers*.

    I can see Lois Smith coming back in some “Flashbacks”as did Eddie
    do in Season 2 in bed with Jason at retreat~and I can also see
    her coming back later on as the storyline gets into books 8 & 9

  • Hmmm… *eyebrow arched* Sounds interesting! I really like Lois Smith, so I hope she comes back in some way! That would be awesome!
