Time for a quick update of some of our favorite True Blood actors.
Eric’s Vampire sibling, actress Lucy Griffiths, is to star in AMC’s pilot Preacher– based on the (very) graphic novel of the same name. We wish Lucy all the best with this, her True Blood character was sorely underused (more wasted potential from a show that ended up being renown for it).
Joe Manganiello has joined his fellow alumni Tara Buck, in the cast of Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday.
The new episode of True Blood aired tonight. It was titled “You’re No Good”. (the original title was “Abducted”). The episode synopsis stated:
Bill looks for a solution to an impending catastrophe; Eric takes a hostage, while Sam tries to recover one. Irate over Burrell’s blatant aggression towards vampires, Eric takes matters into his own hands and takes a hostage. After dangerously testing the limits of his powers, Bill enlists a TruBlood innovator to synthesize a new type of blood – but has difficulty finding the right donor. Sookie begins to learn why Warlow is after her. Sam receives unexpected help from Nicole and her Vampire Unity Society (V.U.S.) associates. Steve Newlin (Michael McMillian) finds his past ideals turning into a current nightmare.
HBO posted their recap/inside the episode video shown below:
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:
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.
How does Nora know Warlow?
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.
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”)
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:
[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.
[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.]
