True Blood Season Four Spoilers: E!’s Kristin Gets the Scoop on Someone’s New Love Interest

March 1, 2011 by  

Overheard at the Grove

true-blood-castMondays are spoiler days on the internet and this freshly published set does not disappoint!  Every week, I make a point of asking Kristin from E! if she has any True Blood tidbits to share and this week I was fortunate to have my request answered with one of three pieces of scoop concerning the show. Kristin’s crew was fortunate to have a few moments with Sam Trammell (Sam Merlotte), Rutina Wesley (Tara Thornton), and Deborah Ann Woll (Jessica Hamby) at the All Together Now signing this past Saturday.

By far the most interesting revelation to come out of these conversations was a revelation given by Sam Trammell about what his character will be up to this season. We already know from previous spoilers released that Sam will find his own little community of shifters but that’s not all he finds according to Trammell:

“Sam’s [also] got a new love interest that’s going to happen this year for him. I don’t have really good luck with the ladies, they usually die—so hopefully she’ll survive.”

A new love interest huh? Well it’ll be interesting to see if this mystery woman is new to Sam or to the show as well.

Brave New Woman

Speaking of new things, Tara will be a new person according to her portrayer Rutina Wesley. As fans may recall she left town at the end of last season and apparently only Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) knows where she went. Of the change in her character, Rutina says:

“It’s a new Tara, and I think the fans are going to like it. She’s not duct-taped, she’s not tied up, she’s got this personal strength and I think it’s really awesome to see her. Sookie (Anna Paquin) and I will have some stuff this season—she’s my best friend, so we’re always going to have little moments. And we’re going to get back to how I felt about Sam Merlotte”

I for one cannot wait to see how Sam and Tara’s relationship plays out now that he’s revealed he’s a shapeshifter!

What about Jessica?

Jessica’s journey over the past three seasons has been anything but easy. However, at the end of last year it would seem that she finally found a little bit of happiness with Hoyt Fortenberry (Jim Parrack). But the show being what it is, that probably won’t last for long.  Deborah still has some positive things to look forward to with regards to her character’s growth. Especially in her relationship with Bill (Stephen Moyer):

“I think we’re definitely also in a healing stage where he’s finally accepting that he has a progeny, that he has a daughter vampire, and he needs to give me tools to actually survive. So he’s definitely more cooperative and participatory in my growing up.”

Aww! Just hearing that makes me smile! Not to mention, it gives fans of the Southern gentleman vampire hope that Bill has not become as dark as he may seem.

That’s all the True Blood scoop I have for now Truebies! But you can rest easy now knowing that we here at TBN will bring you the latest True Blood news as it is released. Fans interested in reading the chat in its entirety can click the source link below.

  • Hi Jaxx, I am back on site after such a long time.

    I am hoping thast Tara and Sam find some mutual understanding, bearing in mind what had passed between them in season 1.

    I would love for them to be together, but I am sure that this won’t happen. One can only dream.

    As for Jessica and Hoyt was ever a love so true..

    • Jaxx

      A big hello to Missyella!!! *hugs* Glad to see you back.

      I am so looking forward to S4. Amnesia Eric, Sookie in faeland, Alcide, Sam, Pam, Jess, etc. Also looking forward to seeing where Bill’s character will be doing this season. So much to look forward to but only 12 episodes. 🙁 That always makes me sad. I so wish we had more than 12. Also, Russell will be back too with a vengance.

      This is going to be a good year.

      Looking forward to our after episode chats. 🙂

    S4 seems positive for a few characters. Yes, I hope Tara is not screeching and that Sam gets a bit of happiness.

    I love that Bill and Jess will have bonding time. She only learnt how to feed of humans and act crass when she was with Pam and Eric for those first 2 weeks of her unlife, so at least she has calmed down a bit in her dress sense and attititude since then, so Bill, along with Sookie, have been a bit helpful! They did have that touching scene after Bill gave Sookie blood and hey broke up – that was lovely and an ice breaker. Showing Jess how to fight like a Vampire was fantastic!

    I’m hoping Sam and Tara have good storylines this year. There’s only so much of Tara being tortured you can take. Glad she’s coming back stronger and renewing her friendship with Sookie. I like the Jess storyline. Bill and her need to bond. I think they will overcome any problems they had. They need each other like Eric and Pam.

    I thought Tara DID find out last season? At the end…? Isn’t that part of what caused her to flee…? Finding out that one of the few people she thought was normal, thought she could trust, was hiding something so big from her??

    • Yes, you are right!….Tara did find out about Sam. She was very upset.
      …And don’t forget that Maxine Fortenberry was buying a rifle late last season. I think she will be giving Hoyt and Jessica some trouble!

      Thanks for pointing that out guys! I apologize profusely for any confusion this might have caused. I misread the quote and I had no idea. So thanks for pointing it out! I have fixed the article and all is well.

      That’ll teach me to write articles up late at night. But I think it might be worth it, especially when you all find out where I was last night. 😀 I might have gotten to go to something related to True Blood and you’ll have to wait until tomorrow just to see exactly what….

    I’m glad that Tara will have a little happiness. I don’t think I could stand to watch another season of her being victimized. Even though I don’t like Bill/Sookie together, I do enjoy seeing Bill/Jessica scenes. I’m looking forward to seeing Jessica/Bill bonding. Their scenes are very sweet. Jessica does need to learn how to be a vampire. I see Jessica as a second chance for Bill. No, she can never replace his human family but she can help him heal. Maybe someday he will be able to lay the past to rest. I don’t want Jessica/Hoyt to break up but that might happen. I would like to see some Jessica/Pam bonding. Pam could be like a big sister to her (maybe someday). Hopefully, Sam’s new girlfriend lasts a little longer than the others.
