True Bloodless Sunday Fangover Recovery Day 7:Favorite Quotes

True Blood season 5 ended last Sunday. Yes this is the first Sunday in a while that fans do not have a new episode to enjoy. Still recovering from the finale fangover? Well here are a few favorite True Blood quotes to make the wait less painful:

The image above has one of my favorite quotes from Vampire Pam. She has had over the seasons some of the best quotes ever! The one featured in the image:

“My mad face and my happy face are the same”   is one of my favorites from season 5. Kristin’s delivery and timing make it extra sarcastic and oh so enjoyable to hear her say it!

These quotes below are from the Season 5 Finale: “Save Yourself”:

Pam:  “Must all roads lead to f—cking Sookie?

Andy: “Her kind don’t welp in the hospital.” (little did Andy know that Maurella would really be having that many babies!)

Arlene: “Who knew watching an alien give birth could be so comforting?”

Lafayette: (to Arlene):  “It’s always the weird stuff that’s the best.”

Eric: Oh sweetie dont be a fool.
Jason: If I want to be a fool then I will be a fool! That is my God given right as an American!

This exchange between Eric and Jason was my favorite from the finale:

Jason: “Something funny, fanger?”
Eric: “Yes, blood bag.”
Jason: “Leach.”
Eric: “”Breather.”
Jason: “Dead f***.”
Eric: “Meat sack.”

Jason: Before things what, spin out of control? That train has already sailed.

Jason Stackhouse has had his fair share of funny quotes. You have to love a character that can say what he says and not crack himself up.

Rosalyn complains about Bill and Salome: “Compton and Salome are off buttering each others’ biscuits half the time.”

Bill: “I told you, the first night we ever met: Vampires often turn on those they love the most.”

Pam said this in the season 5 premiere: “I’m wearing a Walmart sweatsuit for y’all. If that’s not a demonstration of team spirit, I don’t know what is.” (the sweat suit she wore for the episode was recently auctioned for the “Out of Africa” charity and raised over $1000!)

Pam has had some of the best quotes this season.  Would love to hear some of your favorites from the show. These were just a few of the many quotes in the finale.

HBO GO True Blood Season 5 Finale Bonus Scene

Fans who have HBO Go were able to see the special “sneak peek” clip after the True Blood Season 5 Finale. The video is available below. This leaves us with even more questions. (as if that were even possible!).

After viewing this clip last night I had a few more questions come to mind:

  1. Didn’t it look like Jason thought about shooting all the vampires with him in the elevator for a few seconds?  I’m glad he did not. But there is a part of him now that really hates vampires. He did help get Pam and Jessica out of the Authority jail and helped Eric.
  2. How does Nora know Warlow?
  3. Is Warlow some type of ‘vampire tale’ that is told to scare vampires? (like a boogey man??) Might be that Nora has knowledge of him from being with the Authority.
  4. Will Pam and Tara have that hot date in season 6 (oh yes..more scenes where Pam will say “lay back and think of “Nawlins”/Bon Temps”)
  5. Sookie says she they’ll join them when things are safe for them. Is it safe from the vampire guards? Or is it safe from the newly resurrected “Bill” (or Billith as many are calling him now).

As if waiting were hard enough after that finale the wait will be even tougher. In an effort to help fans cope , I’ll post a daily “fangover” entry to help in the ‘recovery’ process. Waiting sucks but it sucks less with fellow fans all going through the same thing.

Here’s a transcript of what goes on in the video:

Full transcript…

[Elevator doors close]

Jessica, to Jason: Jason, she’s going to be OK.

[Jason's zoned out. He ain't listening.]

Nora: We don’t have time for this. They’ll be waiting for us up there.

[Everyone preps their weapons.]

Tara, to Pam: You better not go and get yourself killed, you hear? ‘Cause you and I’ve got a date. It’s been a long time coming

Pam: If that’s not an impetus to survive, I don’t know what is.

[Hot.]

[Jason rocks back and forth like a crazy person. In an "interactive feature," we can see that the parentals are using elevator time to feed him a little nonsense. Dad: "You got 11 of them, champ. We counted." Mom: "Eleven soul-less fangers dead for good. I'm so proud of you." Dad: "You just keep taking them out until you get that motherf--ker Warlow." Mom: "Language!" Dad: "You've got four of them here. Easy pickin's."]

Jessica, to Jason: You OK, Jason?

[Jason looks around the elevator, still lost in his parents' words. He looks like he could shoot everyone in the elevator at any second. The elevator doors open just in time.]

Vamps: [threatening hiss as they prep for battle.]

[The room seems empty...then a vamp goes for them. BAM! Jason gets it. And they start to go up a staircase.]

Jason: I’m coming for you, Warlow.

Nora: Warlow?! What do you know about Warlow?

[Jason turns toward Nora...]

New True Blood Season 5 Finale Image Plus Chance to Unlock New Promo

HBO posted the new True Blood season finale image shown above on Facebook. I spy Eric Northman, Nora and Tara with Jason!! Yes that looks like it is Sookie’s house (ok technically it’s still Eric’s) I had a feeling he would be heading to Sookie’s home! Keeping my fingers crossed he is able to take care of Russell and get Sookie safely home! Seeing Tara there also makes me believe that Eric will also save Pam!

HBO also has this twitter campaign going on. If there are 100,000 tweets sent out using this hashtag #SaveYourself a new promo video for the finale “Save Yourself” will be released! So get out there and TWEET!!

Here’s what they wrote:

100,000 #SaveYourself tweets unlock a SNEAK PEEK at the finale: http://itsh.bo/TSacqq

True Blood Ep. 58 Promo Video “Unexpected Guest” and “We Meet Again”

HBO posted 2 more videos for episode 5.10 for True Blood “Gone, Gone, Gone”. The Bloody Romance video was pulled from YouTube. Here is the HBO video. Showing Mike Spencer making a visit to Sookie’s home. (does not bode well..)

The second clip features Jessica and Jason at Merlotte’s. Hoyt is shown at the very end of the clip:

Working on the screencaps! Will add to this post as soon as done. Waiting sucks! So what do you think is going to happen right after the action in these clips? Looks like Mike Spencer may have known more about the death of Sookie’s parents. Hoyt also looks like he has a lot on his mind in the second clip.

Screencaps for “Unexpected Guest”. Notice Mike’s shadow on Sookie’s porch. Pretty creepy how he was on the porch. Looked like he was trying to see if anyone else was in the house with Sookie once he entered.

Here are the screencaps for the “We Meet Again” promo clip. Sounds like Jess no longer has any guards. (no money to pay them). Jason seems concerned for her. It was good to see Hoyt at the very end of the clip.

Monday Medic Snarky Cure for True Blood Fangover

180

Fans finally had the chance to see the season 4 premiere of True Blood last night. HBOGo customers were also able to view the second episode as well! Now if that doesn’t give a fan a fangy over load and a definite fangover I don’t know what will.

Here are some possible cures for the post True Blood Sunday fangover: SPOILER ALERT Yes images are spoilers for those who have not watched episode 4.02!

012

Red Bow Gifts

Yes finally Eric Northman fans were able to see a gift for Sookie from Eric. When Sookie arrives at her newly renovated home she sees a few new items. Of course Sookie is not amused. Notice the note on the door “Out with the old” . Perhaps a bit of foreshadowing in that little note? (most definitely).013

Now why would Eric be giving Sookie a microwave? Hmmm let me think well perhaps to heat up a bit of blood for him? Too bad Sookie finds Eric’s carafe in her fridge and dumps it out.

014

For some reason I remember that a certain type of blood might need to be aerated? Does Eric drink some of the special royalty blend?

016

Hidey Hole

The look on Sookie’s face is priceless when she discovers that Eric has built himself a hidey hole. And what a decent sized hidey hole it appears to be! We even get to see some of Eric in that hidey hole in episode 4.03 (from the snippet of trailer shown last night)

015

010

Baby Blues

009

No matter how fanged out fans may feel at least they don’t have to worry about their babies having supernatural powers. Worries like that are enough to keep Arlene a bit more skittish! I really don’t like how they are going down this path that the baby is “evil” just because his father was a serial killer. The baby is adorable!

004Love the one You’re With?

Another possible cure for the fangover is to relax and love the one you’re with! Even Bill Compton has learned to move on without Sookie. It was a bit of a shock to discover just all that Bill has ascended to the year Sookie was missing. What was also a shocker was just who was doing the “loving” with Bill! Yes indeed. Looks like something WITCHY this ways does come!  (sorry my bad..couldn’t resist) Still wonder why did Bill have Eric handle that situation personally? Hmmmm…

069

Another interesting “tidbit” for Bill came out in the 80′s flashback scene. Very interesting indeed! Bill a SPY?

Lick the Fangover Away?

Who would have ever guessed we would hear Jason Stackhouse say he was more of a “band aid” kinda guy? Honestly I could not help but chuckle a little bit when I saw Timbo licking Jason’s wounds. Sad that Jason was so hurt but the visual of Timbo trying to clean his wound was funny. Timbo looked much like a momma cat tending to a kitten. (a bit more foreshadowing?) The Hotshot residents really have not been shown in a favorable light on True Blood. Poor Jason!  Little did he know that having a guy lick you on the head would be the least of his worries!

Waiting for the new season has indeed SUCKED! Let’s enjoy the time we have with season 4 since we all know that time does fly by just as Sookie Stackhouse! Seriously though there is quite a lot of action coming up for fans in the new season. I’m keeping fingers and fangs crossed that all the little seeds sown by Alan Ball and the amazing cast of True Blood will soon bloom into something great.

036

Bill Compton covered in a bit of "royalty"

No matter how awful a fangover fans may be having today at least they are not covered in ………………SPOILER (Queen). RIP QSA at least you went out in style.

EW Spoilers for True Blood Season 4: Eric, Bill and Jason!

Entertainment Weekly is giving us some new spoilers for Season 4:

Hi. I am a HUGE fan of True Blood. I know this season is primarily about Sookie/Eric, but this Bill fan wants to know if the former couple will have any decent scenes together as well? Will Bill be pursuing Sookie or is he too busy with his new power position? — CK

I know you’ve seen the first eight minutes, but the next eight will definitely answer your question about whether Bill cares or not. That said, Bill’s storyline is sometimes very twisted, but mostly just full of twists.

I’m gonna be selfish here by not asking for couple news. All I want is Eric! If not Eric, Alcide will do. Have your pick, thanks. — Shaden

Eric is constantly underestimated, and he’ll prove that in the first episode when he comes into possession of something extremely valuable. Also, episode 2 has some pretty great Eric moments, especially the last scene.

Let’s get some scoop on Jason, please! Bill, Sookie, Eric — love ‘em all. But haven’t heard a thing about Jason! — Gloria

Ryan Kwanten has talked about some dark and disturbing scenes that are in Jason’s future, and he was right on point. One scene in episode 2 might even require eye covering if you’re squeamish.

True Blood Set Photo Sneek Peek

This image has been out for a little bit by now. I cropped out the fan and one of the cast members. (don’t want to upset the powers that be at HBO). It was taken on the set during filming of Season 4 of True Blood. (found online in a tumblr account a huge thanks to Sookieverse blog for the find!). It shows Alexander wearing a blue flannel shirt. This shirt seemed very familiar to me and yes it does give hope that season 4 will include some of the book “action”. The action I believe we might see is perhaps a certain amnesiac Eric wearing clothing that belong to Jason (or perhaps clothing that Jason is sent out to buy by Sookie). The shirt did look familiar for a reason. I found a screen cap from Season 2 episode 10 where Jason and Sookie return to Bon Temps to discover it quite a mess after the Maenad’s influence. shown below: If it is not the same shirt it sure looks like one very much like it. Either way it will be fun to see just why Eric is wearing this and why is he in Sookie’s house! Waiting sucks but at least finding goodies like this photo make the wait a little more bearable.
