VIDEO: True Blood Season 6 Episode 9 Teaser – ‘Meeting Terry’ #FridayFlashback

August 9, 2013

True Blood Brings Us a Terry Bellefleur Flashback:

Chris Bauer (Andy Bellefleur) and Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) look for Terry Bellefleur (Todd Lowe) in HBO's True Blood Season 6, Episode 9, entitled 'Life Matters'HBO is giving us plenty of promo videos for True Blood Season 6 Episode 9 (entitled Life Matters) this week!  And this one comes in the form of a flashback.

Episode 9 of True Blood will bring the residents of Bon Temps together for the funeral of the much loved Terry Bellefleur (Todd Lowe). It seems that there might be a little reminiscing involved as this video gives us a flashback to an early Terry Bellefleur.

We find Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammel) (from the newly opened Merlotte’s bar) with Andy Bellefleur (Chris Bauer) and a case of Terry’s favorite beer, Raging Bitch. They are out in the middle of nowhere and appear to be trying to lure Terry out of the wilderness. Eventually a camouflaged Terry shows up, looking a lot more damaged than he was before Arlene Fowler (Carrie Preston) picked him up and bought him some measure of happiness.

VIDEO: True Blood Season 6 Episode 9 ‘Prayer’ Teaser

August 9, 2013

Is Sarah Newlin Praying for True Blood?

With only two episodes left of HBO’s True Blood Season 6, fans are starting to get anxious about all their favorite vampires  now trapped in the room from Billith’s (Stephen Moyer) vision from earlier in Season 6. Will they all meet the sun?

In the latest video teaser of Episode 9 (entitled Life Matters), we find Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) praying – but for who or what, is unclear. Is she praying for her own safety perhaps? After seeing what looks like Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) holding a gun to her head in the previous Episode 9 promo, then possibly she is indeed praying for her own salvation.

We also find snippets of that damn roof opening up over our True Blood vampires. Will they all die? Then  Jason Stackhouse is screaming and bodies are burning. If you slow that particular scene down, you can see a redhead cowering in the background – is that Jessica (Deborah Ann Wool)? Why isn’t she burning?

We also find Billith coming out of Fairyland – or is he being forcibly pushed out? Especially since we see a very brief moment of a very angry Warlow (Robert Kazinsky) – and is Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) tied up behind him? Finally, there is that flash of what appears to be Lilith (Jessica Clarke). Which leads fans to wonder ‘what’s that all about?’

So many questions. Only this Sunday will be able to answer them for us – #waitingSUCKS!

We also get to see a lot of burning bodies – are they the vampires we love so much? It’s hard to see with all those flames licking at their faces.

We find a bloody-mouthed Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) – did she feed on someone? – begging for Billith to remember his soul. What is Billith doing that brings his soul and it’s well-being into question?

True Blood Season 6, Episode 9 Synopsis has been released. Episode 9 marks the 2nd last episode of Season 6. The battle between the humans and vampires will likely intensify even further in the upcoming episodes. Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) will be out for revenge for his sister Nora’s (Lucy Griffiths) death, which was at the hands of the humans.

Here’s What will Happen:

“A desperate Bill (Stephen Moyer) tries to ferry Warlow (Rob Kazinsky) away from the faerie plain, but Sookie (Anna Paquin) is having none of it. Meanwhile, Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) arrives at vamp camp, looking to inflict serious human damage. In Bon Temps, friends and family take emotional turns remembering a fallen neighbor. Bill feels the pull of Lilith’s (Jessica Clark) sirens”.

So Truebies do you think that Eric is going to get the revenge he is looking for, or will his return to vamp camp only to further secure his spot in the room where the vampires will meet the sun?

True Blood Season 5 Episode 9 “Everybody Wants To Rule The World” Recap

August 11, 2012

Endings and New Beginnings

The new sheriff of Area 5 in HBO's True Blood

We start this episode with a news report on the burning of a Tru Blood factory and the vampires at Authority headquarters are celebrating – on a human no less! Although, lesser members, such as Molly are finding it hard just to open doors inside the place. It seems there is no escape for the likes of Molly and Eric. It is a wonder Eric is still alive when other vampires have died for lesser indiscretions. I’m certainly not complaining though, and I hope the plot that Eric and Molly are hatching doesn’t end badly.

Meanwhile, Sookie has hired Lafayette to try and track down the evil vision of Warlowe that appeared last episode in her bathroom. At first Lafayette has no luck, but then he makes contact with Sookie’s gran who has the message: ‘Look under the bed.’ She is also thankful for the ‘striptease fairies’ (gran’s quote). Hmm…wonder what she’ll find there?

Poor Jessica is having to deal with Kenya and the rest of the police department with the whole Hoyt situation. Seems she can’t find Hoyt, or feel him with her vamp blood bond either. I hope he’s going to be okay. Especially since the very next scene shows Hoyt being dragged – (hopefully) unconscious – through the dirt.

Sam and Luna are having that first ‘I love you’ conversation – except it’s occurring in the midst of an argument! It seems Luna is going to help Sam track down the supe-haters regardless of how injured she still is – that girl sure has spunk!

Arlene and Terry have a lot to discuss about what happen in Iraq between Terry, Patrick and the rest of the squad. Terry leaves in an attempt to save Arlene from any more danger. This backfires though when Patrick absonds Arlene at gunpoint when she arrives for work at Merlotte’s. Patrick convinces her to call her co-workers and tell them work is closed for the day.

Tara plans to stockpile Fangtasia’s store of Tru Blood for the personal use of herself and Pam. Pam quickly puts a stop to this. If there is no synthetic blood on tap at Fangtasia, then that only leaves the humans patrons on which they can quench their thirst. They plan to pretend to drink Tru Blood once the stock runs out and discretely feast on humans when no one is looking.

Eric tries to save Bill from himself and bring him back to the main-streaming side. Bill seems pretty convinced of Lilith’s doctrine since his vision of her though. Eric lets Bill in on his and Molly’s plan to escape using the stolen blood of Salome and Nora. I hope Bill really is on Eric’s side, otherwise this will probably end badly.

Sookie and Lafayette search a box of trinkets found under Sookie’s bed and come across not only a framed report card of Jason’s where he received his one and only B, but a news article announcing the fact that Sookie’s parents bodies were found by Bud Dearborn. Sookie finally has a lead to follow.

On the supe-haters may have their faces covered with Obama masks, but that doesn’t stop Jason recognising a few. Of course, he also get confused over the use of the word ‘dragon’, thinking they mean the real ones. Andy, however, points out that the term was also used in the Klu Klux Clan. Although, assaulting supe-hater in custody yields no clues as to who this dragon may be.

Next we find Alcide who is remembering back to his childhood and just how important is is to be a wolf in a pack. Alcide is driving to find his father, who we later find passed out on a couch in a trailer. It turns out his father is also a no-hoping gambler. I hope Alcide doesn’t end up like this as a result of his being abjured from the pack.

Sookie goes to visit Bud Dearborn to ask him about her parents. Dearborn does own up to the fact that there were bites on her parents. At the time they attributed them to gators, but it seems Bud has more than a slight aversion to vampires. Sookie tries to read Bud’s mind by spilling her drink and then grabbing onto him. It turns out Bud doesn’t know of any vampires that go by the name Warlowe, but that point is moot once a lady (who is large and possibly fits the description Luna-Sam gave last week in the room they rescued Jess from) with a heavy skillet knocks poor Sookie out cold!

Andy is being harassed by reporters outside his headquarters. He shucks them off when he sights Sam and Luna though. After speaking to the shifters, he discovers they also scented pig poo along with the large lady. They want to help Andy, but he says no. It’s lucky they can change into other critters – can anyone say ‘fly on a wall’?

Andy and Jason discuss the implications of pig excrement and how that all ties into what has happened to Hoyt and the supe-haters. Eventually they work out, thanks to more video footage on that Bud Dearborn is a member of this group. Time is ticking to save everyone now!

Speaking of pigs, Sookie wakes up and finds herself surrounded by them. She also locates Hoyt, who is still out cold and tied up in the next pen. Bud arrives and in a typical villian monologue fills us in on why he’s anti-supe. His girlfriend, Sweetie, arrives and we get a little insight into her past thanks to Sookie’s telepathy. We also discover that she is the dragon! After more talking, they make Sookie drink some drugged ginger ale.

Jason and Andy arrive – just in the knick of time. Except that they’re at Bud Dearborn’s house and not where Sookie is being held captive. After a bit of searching, they realise that Bud’s wife owned a pig farm and they are back on track. I hope they get there in time!

Terry and Patrick come head to head when Patrick lures him (with the help of a distraught Arlene) to Merlotte’s. They argue and each plead for their own lives. Patrick still has a gun to Arlene’s head, so we are not as sympathetic to him, but his words seem to be working on Terry who drops to his knees. Patrick lines up to shoot Terry and end the curse when Arlene stabs him in the neck. A scuffle breaks out and Arlene ends up with the gun.

Eric confronts Nora about her beliefs. Eric tries to turn Nora away from the beliefs of  Lilith. It would seem he is being true to Godric’s wishes by trying to persuade her to turn away from the Sanguinistas. Salome, on the other hand is in bed with Bill and they are feasting upon each other. Bill gets confused and sees Sookie instead of Salome. Is he really Sanguinista or not? He bites her anyway, although once he realises it is Salome he has bitten, he is contemplative of her blood and the freedom it can bring. Still we do not know which side Bill is on.

Sweetie and the rest of the supe-haters are making more damning videos in their Obama masks. They set the hungry pigs loose on Hoyt and Sookie. Luckily one of those pigs is Sam. (Who’s glad he ignored Andy now and became flies on the wall? I certainly am!) He rescues Sookie and a fight breaks out. Sweetie makes a run for it at the sight of Sam. The police arrive and all seems to be sorted. Bud will not admit defeat and is shot dead in the process. It’s touch and go for Hoyt as well, we hope he pulls through. Luna takes off after Sweetie. She manages to get a hold of the dragon and punches her repeatedly. That seems to sort out that storyline.

Terry has the gun on Patrick now. Both Patrick and Arlene are trying to tell Terry what to do. Before Terry can flip out completely, the ghost of the woman he shot in Iraq appears and Terry finally shoots Patrick. The ghost-woman is happy and releases the Ifrit who consumes the body of Patrick. Another storyline is neatly tied up.

A new storyline is introduced next. We can’t have so many ending without some juicy new drama. Pam finds a goth vampire sitting in Eric’s throne at Fangtasia. As if that insult isn’t bad enough, he is publicly feeding on a human. Pam tells him off but to no avail – it seems this is the new sheriff of Area 5, as decreed by the Authority! What Authority? He announces that public consumption of humans is now allowed. Who is this new vampire?

Russell and Steve make an appearance next. They are welcoming the new packmaster, JD. Russell offers his blood to the pack. All partake of it except for Martha, who is holding her granddaughter (in wolf form), Emma. Russell notices and when Martha vows never to drink from Russell, he steals Emma from her and gives the wolfling to Steve as a pet. Oh dear, Luna is going to be annoyed when she finds out!

In the last scene of this episode we find Eric, Nora and Molly together. It seems Nora did not change her mind and Eric has to sedate her (I wonder what they have to use in that cocktail?) Just as Eric is carrying Nora to the door to use her blood to open it, Bill arrives. Uh-oh, it appears that Bill is still a Sanguinista. When they open the door, Salome and an army are there and they arrest Eric and Molly!

Will this mean the final death for Eric and Molly? Let me know what you think in the comment below.

Kristin Bauer Van Straten Talks About Episode 9 “Everything is Broken”

August 17, 2010

Kristin Bauer van Straten True Blood Vampire PamKristin Bauer Van Straten is known for her talent and big heart; she splits her time between acting and charity. However, what about Pam, the character she plays in True Blood? As much as fans love Pam, there’s a lot that they don’t know about her. In Season 3, Episode 9: Everything is Broken, fans get a little more information about this vampire fashionista.

Recently, Pam was in danger of being tortured to death for her involvement in selling V. Eric was frantic to save her because he’s her maker, but what was their relationship before: lovers or friendship? When shooting began, this wasn’t very clear, but with Episode 9, it has become apparent that the relationship between Eric and Pam is a paternal one, and that Pam considers Eric a father figure.

It’s clear that Pam thinks Eric is better maker than Bill. A reluctant maker is awful because they end up not teaching the things a new vampire needs to know. Bill still has feelings of guilt for creating Jessica, while Eric never had those feelings with Pam. He created Pam with love; love for her and for being a vampire. To Pam this makes Eric is a great maker, but her bond with him may be her weakness.

The Season 2 Blu Ray gives a lot of  insight on Pam and her history with Eric. It’s here fans find out she’s 100 years old. She was stuck in a small world world that kept crippling limitations on women. Pam was very strong in character and didn’t like the world she was living in; she chose to go against the grain by being secretively promiscuous. For Kristin, Pam

“sought Eric out and pursued being a vampire and never looked back.”

Aside from her past, Pam’s sexuality and love interests are also things fans talk about.While some fans argue over which guy is better for Sookie: Eric or Bill, others think Sookie should give Pam a chance. Kristin thinks it’s an interesting idea:

“Two women who understand each other, who could go shopping together for eternity? Sounds kind of awesome.”

These creative imaginative scenarios are possible because Pam has been a part of True Blood since the beginning. Many characters come in only to be killed off by the end of the season. Kristin’s glad her character is in all the books so far, which makes it a little harder for her to get the ax. She hopes to stick around, but the books and the show, are not carbon copies of each other. About the characters who die Kristin says,

“Every table read where two or three go, there’s sort of a hush over the room.”

Both her good friends Mariana Klaveno, who played Lorena, and Michelle Forbes, who played Maryann, were both killed off. Though she misses having them around the set, Kristin insists that they have a great time when they all hang out off set.

With so many characters being killed off, the stakes are higher for the characters still alive. Pam’s integrity and loyalty will be tested further. Her physical strength will also be tested in the future episodes. Will she be as strong physically as she is mentally?

Hopefully so, given that Pam has become a fan favorite. In a world that forces people to censor their thoughts and feelings all the time, it’s refreshing for fans to meet a character like Pam, who has none of these restraints; she’s straight forward and unapologetic. She’s true to who she is. And she does it all in a great pair of pumps and an expensive pink cardigan.

True Blood 3.09 “Everything Is Broken” Review

August 16, 2010

Denis O'Hare True Blood Holding Bloody TalbotIn the world of True Blood, people’s lives were forever changed by the knowledge that vampires existed, and they changed again in “Everything Is Broken.” Russell Edgington issued a Great Revelation of his own, essentially waging open war on mankind. With only 3 episodes left to go in Season 3, who can stop him? Even if Russell can be stopped, how can the damage he’s caused be repaired?

At the start of the episode, Eric flies to Fangtasia to tell Pam what he has done and get them to a safe place. Inconveniently, Nan Flanagan of the American Vampire League picked this time to drop by and inquire after the missing Magister. She instructs one of her soldiers to take silver to Eric, and Ginger‘s familiar horrified screams take us into the opening credits.

Russell arrives home to find Talbot nothing more than a pile of bloody guts on the floor. He frantically starts trying to hold onto what’s left of his lover, although he takes a brief moment to look curiously at the empty stand which should hold his Viking crown.

Sookie climbs into the shower to rinse the blood off from her fight with Debbie and her sex with Bill. Then Bill decides to join her, and their intimacy takes on the sweeter tone we’re used to. He drinks a little more from her neck and then bites his finger, using his blood to heal the bite marks. As they kiss passionately and appear to be begin another lovemaking session, the water washes away the blood from both of them, and they seem closer than they’ve been in a long time, emotionally and physically.

Afterwards, some of the unpleasantness of reality sinks back in as Sookie discovers the body of the werewolf Bill killed. It’s quite an amusing scene, though, as Bill and Sookie talk about what life would be like if they were “normal” while wrapping up the dead naked man in a tarp to dispose of: “What would you rather be doing? Sittin’ on the sofa, watchin’ television?” “Well,” Sookie responds, “that used to be my idea of excitement, you know. You’ve spoiled me.”

Like Sookie seems to have done in a very short amount of time since the dramatic events of Jackson, I find myself easily softening up to Bill again and forgiving him for what seemed so awful only a few weeks ago, particularly when he looks so heartfelt: “You have to trust me….don’t you?” She uses the opportunity to bring up the folder of newspaper clippings and family information shown to her by Russell: “Okay, see, I don’t know how you did things in the 1800’s, but keeping a file on the woman you love is…creepy.” Bill explains that he was only trying to learn what she was to see why Eric was so interested in her, and so that he could protect her better. Sookie makes a very good point: “You have to trust me, and stop thinking of me as a thing to be protected. I took care of Debbie myself. I’m not afraid to spill a little blood anymore. As much as you want to be human, I think I’m meeting you halfway to vampire.”

Lafayette surprises himself when he wants Jesus to stay the night. Normally after sleeping with a guy, he comes up with an excuse to kick him out. This is definitely a new experience for him, and he looks happier and more peaceful than we’ve ever seen him. The next day, Jesus takes Ruby Jean back to the hospital. She recognizes something different about Lafayette (or as she calls him, “La La”): “You ain’t got your mask on…My son is shining through.”

Meanwhile, Crystal is sending some seriously mixed signals to Jason. When he returns home to find Felton screaming at her, she acts like Jason kidnapped and raped her, much to his confusion. Then when Felton starts in on Jason, she hits him over the back of the head and wants Jason‘s help tying him up and making an anonymous call to get him arrested for selling V. Later at the police station, she and Jason hear that Felton badly beat that sweet mumbling deputy, Kevin. Jason offers Andy an idea that’s actually not bad, to raid the drug house in Hot Shot. (And what was with the sinister music playing when Andy looked at the vials of V?)

Eric gives a shockingly honest account about his history with Russell to Nan Flanagan and the Authority (Big Brother-type people in suits watching via video feed). He talks about the branded werewolves fed with vampire blood, the killing of the Magister, his vendetta after the death of his family–even Pam didn’t know about that. He tells them that Russell doesn’t want to coexist with humans, “he wants to subjugate them.” His confessions seem sure to get him staked as punishment, but he appears to be resigned to that. At least he would be leaving behind people who know about Russell’s maniacal plan and could try to stop him. And just like Bill and Sookie from earlier in the episode, we see Eric and Pam closer than they’ve ever been before, with him saying she should Make another when he’s gone, and her laying her head on his chest. She cries to think that their years together might be over, but he somberly tells her, “Everything ends. Even the immortal ones.”

Now that Sam has accepted responsibility for Tommy, he has to deal with all the problems that accompany having an obnoxious teenage brother to look after. Terry and Arlene call late in the night, disturbed by loud noises coming from next door. It seems that Tommy and his lady friend are enjoying themselves a little too much. Sam goes over there to tell them to keep it down, and Tommy calls him “a stick in the mud.”

Sookie gets a phone call from Hadley who wants to see her again. She admits that she’s the reason Sookie is being hunted because of things she told Sophie-Anne, not realizing what the consequences would be. She pulled her son out of the daycare and brought him to the aquarium. She wants Sookie to find out if he has telepathy, too, because then she’ll know that she needs to hide him. Sookie sits down next to Hunter and thinks, ‘Which is your favorite fish in the aquarium? It’s alright, no one knows, it’s just us.’ ‘The blue one,’ he replies wordlessly. Hadley gets very upset when she realizes her suspicions are confirmed. Hadley starts running off with Hunter to hide him, and he yells to Sookie “she knows, she knows”.  Who is he referring too?

Tara goes to a meeting at a local church for rape survivors. There she sees Holly, the new Merlotte’s waitress, who shares her story about being attacked by a coworker many years ago. What she says really resonates with Tara: “Every day I face not only my memory of that, but that part of me who wants to feel sorry for herself, and expects the worst out of people. But that’s not who I was raised to be. And I still believe that people are worth trusting, and every day that piece of me gets a tiny bit stronger.”

Holly comforts Arlene, too, when she’s crying at work over Tommy stealing her tips. She opens up about her pregnancy and how worried she is about losing Terry. She feels like her baby is a “timebomb” that’s going to be just like his evil daddy and destroy her life. Holly asks the hard question, “You want this baby?” Arlene doesn’t, but neither will she get an abortion. Holly hugs her and assures her there are “other ways to resolve it.” What could she mean by that? I like her. I hope she doesn’t die…

Hoyt brings his new girlfriend to Merlotte’s. Jessica gets mad at him for coming, then embarrassed for her fangs popping out when she meets Summer. Jessica sits down with Hoyt when Summer‘s in the bathroom (leaving all her antique dolls on the table…). “Does she at least make you happy?” Jessica asks. Hoyt admits that he hates Summer, but “it beats sittin’ around thinking about you.” Awwww…

Jesus drops by Merlotte’s to see Lafayette, and Tara can’t believe her cousin might actually be in a relationship. He says he can’t decide if Jesus is a miracle or a fool.

Crystal is worried that her family is going to think she’s a snitch. She’s scared they’ll hurt her, but her fear turns to concern when she hears from Jason that they might all get busted. Then after Sam smashes Calvin’s face in for calling him a pussy, she rides with her dad to the hospital. Crystal doesn’t seem to know what she wants.

For Sam, Calvin‘s insult was one step too far after all the stress building up, and Tommy‘s comment that he lets everyone walk all over him. Jason tries to stop Crystal from going back to the people who’ve controlled her life, but she doesn’t listen. Jason is left standing in the parking lot, and it’s a good thing, too, because who should make his grand return but Franklin Mott. He pins Tara to a wall and prepares to kill her, but he says he’ll mourn her death because he loves her. “You don’t love anything. You can’t, because you’re a psychopath! You violated me and terrorized me because that’s what vampires do, and you’re calling that love…You wanna hear me beg for my life, is that it? That’s the only thing y’all can feel: the destruction of life, ’cause you ain’t got none in you.” She’s not afraid to die because then she’ll be rid of him.

Jason cocks his shotgun behind Franklin. “You do realize, I’m a vampire. You could empty every round in me, and I’ll heal.” “Not if I got wooden bullets,” Jason says, as Franklin explodes. (I won’t mourn psycho Franklin, but I will miss James Frain!)

Bill is the one who finds the truth about what Sookie is. He’s asleep in his cubby hole, when he has a strange dream (or is it a dream) of climbing out into that garden we saw in “Hitting the Ground.” He’s dressed all in white, and walks on the water across the pond (symbolism, much?). Claudine happens upon him, confused as to how he came to be there. She thinks he killed Sookie and runs from him. He chases her down and, as he looks down at her neck, it’s clear he wants to bite her. When his fangs come out, Claudine shoots light out of her hands and throws him back.

Bill promises that Sookie is safe, that he would never hurt her. Claudine doesn’t believe him at first, saying he doesn’t really love Sookie and only wants to steal her light. But she seems persuaded by his insistence on protecting Sookie and gives him some kind of insight into what they are. When Bill goes to Sookie, now hiding out at Jason‘s house, he sits her down and begins to tell her about his strange experience and answer the question she has wondered about all her life: “Sookie, I know what you are.” (Except, we still don’t know exactly because the episode ended before we got to see that part!)

The dramatic ending goes to the King of Mississippi, who has gone crazy in his grief over Talbot, whose entrails he is now carrying around in a crystal jar. Just as the American Vampire League gives Eric the freedom to quietly and unofficially carry out his justice on Russell (“Bring me his fangs,” Nan commands, “or I will have yours”), Russell interrupts a news broadcast to make his big statement to humanity. Ripping out the spine of the news anchor reporting on the Vampire Rights Amendment, he says,”We are nothing like you. We are immortal–because we drink the True Blood, blood that is living, organic, and human…Make no mistake, mine is the true face of vampires! Why would we seek equal rights? You are not our equals. We will eat you, after we eat your children. Now time for the weather–Tiffany?”

So what are everyone else’s thoughts on this episode? After Ruby Jean’s remark to Lafayette about his “mask,” I was extremely impressed by you commenters who’ve been talking for weeks about masks that the characters seem to be wearing!
