True Blood Season 7 Spoilers: Goodbyes, Weird Sex & Love Triangles

August 15, 2014

Could an Original Cast Member Die in Episode 9 of HBO’s True Blood ?

Tara Buck stars as Ginger in HBO's True Blood Season 7It seems Episode 9 (entitled Love is to Die) will say a final goodbye to yet another original cast member of HBO’s True Blood! But will they die? It seems the devil is in the fine print of what TVGuide had to say about the upcoming episode recently:

With only two episodes to go, there are a lot of narrative threads to tie up, including the issue of Bill [Compton]’s mortality. I will only say this: At least one original cast member will say goodbye for good this week. In possibly related news, a longstanding love triangle will be resolved and you’ll see one of the show’s weirdest — and funniest — sex scenes between a long-unrequited pair.

How interesting is that news? With the admission of a long term love triangle also being resolved, one could assume that with Bill’s (Stephen Moyer) death, Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) finally chooses Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard).  Consolation prize anyone? However, there is another love triangle going on at the moment – that of Hoyt Fortenberry (Jim Parrack), Jessica Hamby (Deborah Ann Woll) and Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten). Perhaps TVGuide are referring to that triangle instead? Maybe Jess and Hoyt get back together and Jessica decides to move to Alaska to be with him? After all, it doesn’t specifically say the cast member will die.

And what of that sex scene, huh? Who do we know on True Blood that is part of an ‘unrequited pair’? Could it be Sookie and Eric? Probably not, since they have been intimate before. But it sure doesn’t leave many other options. Perhaps Arlene (Carrie Preston) and Keith (Riley Smith)? Especially since TVLine had this spoiler to announce:

Not everyone will get a happy ending on True Blood… but I think it’s safe to say that Arlene and Keith will be among the lucky few. Though we’re not going to get another pool table scene, this Sunday’s episode does show the effect Arlene’s relationship with Keith is having on her. (Spoiler Alert: She’s a very happy woman.)

But they haven’t been an item for very long, and many wouldn’t even really consider them as such. Oh, hang on a minute – what about Ginger (Tara Buck) and Eric? Now that would potentially be hilarious and weird!

True Blood Season 7 Finale: Episode 10 Synopsis Revealed!

August 13, 2014

Who Makes it to Episode 10 (entitled Thank You)?

One Last Bite True Blood Season 7 promo posterWith only two more episodes left of HBO’s True Blood, fans are starting to worry at how all the loose ends will be tied up. Who will die? Who will live happily ever after? Who will Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) finally chose?

Well, we have the press release for the True Blood Season 7 finale! Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) makes it to at least the start of the episode, but it seems he is still suffering from his virulent dose of Hep-V – will he take the antidote or meet the true death? Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) makes a choice – hang on a minute didn’t he already do that in Episode 9? How many choices does Sam have to make? Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) and Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) also make it to Episode 10 (entitled Thank You) of True Blood. It seems they are not entirely comfortable with their relationship with Mr. Gus (Will Yun Lee) though – could one of these three die? And, finally, we come to an interesting little titbit: Andy Bellefleur (Chris Bauer) gets an unexpected inheritance. This one disturbs me, after all it wasn’t that long ago that Bill was seeking legal advice about his will. Could Andy be the benefactor of Bill’s estate? And, if that is the case, does Bill die?

You can make up your own mind on this synopsis and let us know your thoughts by commenting below!

Episode 10 Synopsis:

Episode #80: “Thank You” (series finale)
Debut: SUNDAY, AUG. 24 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT)

True Blood: Find Out What Bill Has to Say About Hoyt & Jessica

August 13, 2014

Jessica Hamby’s Latest Video Blog Features Her Maker:

Jessica Hamby (Deborah Ann Woll) and Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) chat about love in HBO's True Blood Season 7True Blood’s Jessica Hamby (Deborah Ann Woll) has released her latest video blog! It’s yet another melancholy one though as she tries to get some video footage of her her maker, Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) before he meets his true death from his accelerated case of Hep-V.

Bill wakes up half way through her blog entry after he dreamed he had heard Hoyt Fortenberry (Jim Parrack). For all of us who watched Episode 8 of HBO’s vampire show last Sunday, we know Bill wasn’t dreaming, and Jessica confirms that for him. This leads to a discussion on love. Not only is Hoyt and Jess’s relationship touched upon, but the relationship between Bill and his human wife, Caroline.

You can view Jessica’s video blog here:

True Blood Writer Kate Barnow Discusses Episode 8

August 12, 2014

Why Bill Said No and Why Sookie Can’t Help Getting in Trouble:

Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) talk in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 8 (entitled 'Almost Home')Many fans were happy to see Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) get back together at the end of Episode 7 of HBO’s True Blood. Many were not. But, regardless of which team you were vying for, seeing Bill dying and Sookie being devastated about it, is not easy to watch. Hearing Bill say he wanted to die when offered the antidote to his terminal case of Hep-V was even worse. For HBO writer, Kate Barnow, she just hoped that people hadn’t guessed this already with the amount of Bill flashbacks this season:

Truthfully, we were a little concerned that maybe with all the flashbacks that people would guess this was where he was heading, that he was heading into this very fatalistic place. I think Bill has always been at conflict with himself as a vampire, and the thing that has kept him going has been Sookie. But I think that he’s feeling fairly resolute at this point that his time is nigh. That’s certainly what episodes 9 and 10 are gonna explore. Who’s to say if his time really is nigh? The moment where he decides he doesn’t want the blood is largely connected to the dream he’s had where Sookie’s holding the baby void. All of those flashbacks, that dream—everything’s adding up to this should be the end. That’s why he decides it, but all hell is about to break loose. People are not gonna be happy with his decision.

Sookie has risked so much to help heal Bill, having had a run in with the Yakuza and then having to be fake glamoured by Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) were just for starters in this episode, but over the whole season, she has been risking life and limb to fix him. Kate discusses how they wanted Sookie to be more active in this season:

The idea was that Eric would feel kinda at a new place emotionally, which is that he has, to some extent, acknowledged that he has compassion for Sookie, even though she’s a human being. So with this new lease on life, for him to say, “I really want to reassure you that I’m not gonna die”—his whole plan is completely stymied when he gets there. He went with one thing in mind and learns something completely different. And then it’s this conflict of the enterprising Eric up against the romantic Eric. He’s like, motherf–ker, this keeps happening to me: Every time I let my guard down and care for Sookie, it gets in the way. But for Sookie, of course, she’s desperate, and there’s no way that she’s not gonna go after Eric when she finds out there’s a cure. She was just a little bit behind him because he can fly, which, you know, is an advantage. What is truly fun is watching Sookie see the Yakuza standing outside of Fangtasia and just being like, “Okay, I’m doing this anyway.” It feels new, but it’s kinda the same old thing: Sookie’s pursuit of trying to get what she wants, and usually it has something to do with Bill, is gonna mess Eric and Pam up in a big way.

You can read more on what Kate Barnow has to say about the love quadrangle developing between Hoyt (Jim Parrack), Bridgette (Ashley Hinshaw), Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) and Jason (Ryan Kwanten) as well as what it was like researching items for Violet’s (Karolina Wydra) sex dungeon and plenty more regarding Episode 8 of True Blood Season 7 by clicking here.

VIDEO: True Blood Season 7 Episode 9 (Love is to Die) Sneak Peek

August 11, 2014

Bill Remains Resolute in His Decision:

Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) says no in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 9 (entitled 'Love is to Die')Well it appears Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) can be as stubborn as a mule when it comes to deciding when he will die. After refusing to take a sip of Sarah Newlin’s (Anna Camp) restorative blood at the end of Episode 8 (entitled Almost Home), it seems Bill will be sticking to his guns in Episode 9 (entitled Love is to Die) of HBO’s True Blood Season 7.

As for the others still left in Bon Temps, Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten), Jessica Hamby (Deborah Ann Woll), Hoyt Fortenberry (Jim Parrack) and Bridgette all seem to have issues to sort out yet. Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) is seen flying off with what appears to be Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) and Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) is all bound up again.

Will Bill really meet the true death? Let us know what you think will happen in the penultimate episode of True Blood by commenting below!

Synopsis:

Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) retreats in confusion. Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) makes a choice. Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) exercises uncharacteristic restraint, while Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) faces a dilemma after being caught in a lie.

True Blood’s Lauren Bowles Doesn’t Care Who Sookie Ends Up With

August 9, 2014

It’s More About Sookie Stackhouse’s Journey Than Her Destination:

Anna Paquin stars as Sookie Stackhouse in HBO's True BloodBy far the hottest subject for HBO’s True Blood Season 7 is who Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) will end in at the season finale. While for Team Alcide fans, it is already a race lost for the werewolf (played by Joe Manganiello), there are still two other contenders on the table:

  • Team Bill
  • Team Eric

After watching Episode 7 (entitled May Be the Last Time), fans could be lead to believe it will be a happily ever after with Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer). But Team Eric [Northman (played by Alexander Skarsgard)] are counteracting that claim to Sookie’s affections with the fact that there are still three more episodes left and that is a long time in the Sookieverse for things to go horribly wrong for Sookie and Bill!

However, for Lauren Bowles (who plays Merlotte’s waitress and resident wiccan, Holly Cleary) she’s all for Team Sookie:

You know what? I’m Team Sookie… I’m a card-carrying feminist and I think ultimately whether you pair off or not or who you pair off with [doesn’t matter]. Ultimately everyone’s relationship with themselves is at the core for all of us to figure out, as individuals living in this world and with these characters like [Sookie]. And I think so often on shows like this everyone’s focused on the answer: ‘Which one?’ ‘Who will she end up with?’ And to me, it’s just more interesting to sort of see how they all settle in with themselves.

What do you think? Are you Team Sookie as well? Let us know your thoughts by commenting below!

True Blood Season 7: New Episode 7 Stills Released!

August 1, 2014

Sookie, Jessica, Bill and Sarah Newlin All Look So Sad:

Stephen Moyer stars as Bill Compton and Deborah Ann Woll stars as Jessica Hamby in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 7 (entitled 'May Be the Last Time')With only a few short episodes left of HBO’s True Blood Season 7, fans are eager to drain every last drop of information before the show meets it’s final death. So, we have scrounged up some stills for you! Three of these stills show sad faces: Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) seems to be searching to skies for something (her fairy grandfather, Niall Brigant (Rutger Hauger) perhaps?) Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) seems perplexed over something. Meanwhile, Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) and his progeny, Jessica Hamby (Deborah Ann Woll) appear to be deep in discussion.

And then there is Arlene (Fowler (Carrie Preston). Bright, happy, red like a sunset, Arlene. Seems she is the only one happy in Bon Temps in Episode 7 – sure hope we’re wrong about that.

True Blood’s Tara Buck Talks Big Hair, Big Screams and Big Backstory

July 18, 2014

Ginger’s Story Unfolds in True Blood Season 7:

Who knew that Ginger (Tara Buck) invented Fangtasia? HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 4 (Death is Not the End)Ginger (Tara Buck) is one of those characters in HBO’s True Blood that you just love for no reason at all. But its in Episode 4 of this season, we started to see behind the over-glamored veil of Ginger’s fan-girl-dom surrounding Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard), Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) and vampires in general, leading us to know her just a little bit better and love her just a little bit more.

We see smart and vamp-smitten college student Ginger walk into the video store owned by  Eric and Pam only to realize that;

  1. They were vamps
  2. They were hiring
  3. Her life long dream of ‘being with’ a vampire could actually happen!

The scene with Ginger talking Pam’s ear off, about vampire movies, when Eric walks into the store it was described by Tara Buck as;

This is Ginger’s whole True Blood experience in this moment. [Laughs] At first Gregg [Fienberg] wanted it to be pretty subtle. And then we laughed, and we’re like, “You know what, let’s try not subtle, but it’s all internal. It’s still Ginger in 1996, so it’s not like a screaming over-the-top Ginger. It’s still a smart girl whose knees go weak and she can hardly stand up.”

The screaming things started way back in Season 1, quite by accident but it soon became ‘Ginger’s thing’;

She’s in that great scene where Bill (Stephen Moyer) stakes Longshadow (Raoul Trujillo), and he disintegrates, and I throw up. Sookie (Anna Paquin) is covered from head to toe in blood, so I think she and I both scream. It wasn’t a planned thing. When I came back, again it wasn’t necessarily there, but then I put it in. I started screaming, and then it became a running gag. I kept thinking, especially after Season 2, I was like, “I’ve got to stop screaming. How much can you scream before people want to put your eyes out?”

In this season we get to see so much of Ginger’s back story how she came to meet Eric and Pam by working for them in a video store that they owned in Shreveport for 10 years before Ginger came up with the idea, after the vampires had come out of the closet, that they should turn the store into a night club and call it Fangtasia! Ginger states:

Eric Northman is nothing if he is not pure f–king sex on a throne…”

while wielding an amazing throne-like chair she had found and that sex sells!

The inspiration for Ginger’s looks in this episode were “Reality Bites” vs Goth/punk leading to her hair getting blonder, bigger and the make up bolder!

Tara in an interview with The Hollywood reporter revealed that one of her favourite scenes Happened in True Blood Season 4:

I do love when I was in Season 4, when Pam had a skin-eating disease and I have to give her shots. She has that wonderful pink coffin, and the witches start calling, and her coffin is shaking. I have no idea what to do to assist her, but I swore that I would protect her, so all I can think to do is jump on top of that coffin. It definitely sort of solidified the screaming.

From smart and sassy, to spunky and scream-worthy, I think we all can say there is a soft place for Ginger in all our hearts now.

July 18, 2014

Sookie and Bill Prepare For a Party in Episode 5:

Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) offers Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) some flowers in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 5 (entitled 'Lost Cause')This week HBO has graced us with another sneak peek into Episode 5 (entitled Lost Cause) of True Blood Season 7! While the first video clip was a general tease about the upcoming episode, this video has just two characters; Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer). It seems Sookie is attending a party she only just heard about and the flowers Bill offers her are not nearly enough to temper her mood!

Synopsis:

Exhausted from her recent travails, Sookie finds herself the unwilling host of a festive mainstreaming party in Bon Temps. In search of an elusive adversary, Eric and Pam head to Dallas and attend a gala fundraiser. Andy (Chris Bauer) makes a life-changing decision; Jessica and James reach a crossroads; Bill loses himself in remembrance of human days.

Written by Craig Chester; directed by Howie Deutch.

True Blood Season 7: Stephen Moyer and Anna Camp Tweet About Their Final Scenes

July 6, 2014

Will Bill Compton and Sarah Newlin be the Last Standing?

Anna Camp stars as Sarah Newlin in HBO's True Blood Season 7Probably not, but you never know with HBO these days (anyone remember the red wedding in Game of Thrones?). But thanks to Twitter, both stars have confirmed they have completed their last ever scenes for HBO’s True Blood Season 7. And considering shooting apparently winds up on July 9, it seems both actors may be surviving until the very end of the show.

Anna Camp’s tweet doesn’t actually give a lot away, in fact she doesn’t even really confirm that she is even talking about True Blood except to use the phrase ‘Goodbyes Suck‘:

 

But if this tweet is in relation to her final scene with True Blood, then we can assume – unless they were reshooting a scene – that Sarah Newlin gives being the last person standing a red hot go! And how about Stephen Moyer? It seems the last scene he filmed for True Blood was in Bill Compton’s bedroom:  

I wonder what happens in there? A happy ending for him and Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) or does he come to a bloody end?
