True Blood will air their seventh episode on Sunday. The trailer below shows some of what we will see. I spy a lot of interesting action! Spoilers!! It does not bode very well for Nora who was infected with deadly Hep V virus in last week’s episode.
The episode synopsis states:
Eric (Alexander Skarsgård) makes a last-ditch effort to save an ailing Nora (Lucy Griffiths). A tragedy close to home forces Sam (Sam Trammell) to ignore Alcide’s (Joe Manganiello) warning and return to Bon Temps. Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) shows her gratitude to James (Luke Grimes), a fellow incarcerated vamp, while an emboldened Sarah (Anna Camp) exacts a measure of revenge on Jason (Ryan Kwanten
Comic Con 2013 once again featured a True Blood panel in Ballroom 20. The room was filled to capacity with fans who waited many many hours for the chance to see the cast and hear about the rest of season 6.
Here are some highlights of the panel: (from EW.com) I was at the panel and the images on this post were ones I took.
The panel: Actors Anna Paquin, Deborah Ann Woll, Kristin Bauer van Straten, Ryan Kwanten, Nelsan Ellis and Rutina Wesley (pictured), Sam Trammell, Michael McMillian, Anna Camp, Joe Manganiello, newcomer Rob Kazinsky (Warlow), and showrunner Brian “Bucky” Buckner
Footage screened: Just a preview of the second half of season 6. Jessica and company enduring more torture at vamp camp, vampires being tormented, Bill acting all crazy and destructive, lots of Sarah, and Sookie entangled with Warlow in a blood-drenched haze. The final shot was Bill lying face-down on the ground…Screencaps for this trailer are on this post:
Snap judgment: Comic-Con loooooooves True Blood, and the thirsty crowd erupted into raucous cheers for each panelist. When Joe Manganiello said … well, anything, really, but in particular, the simple remark that “Alcide’s not a small guy” — high-pitched screams filled the giant ballroom. New cast member Kazinsky was adorably overwhelmed. “How trippy is this Comic-Con?” he had to point out. “Forty-five-hundred of you right now! Plus, Joe’s really close — and he’s way bigger.”
New promo clips have posted for True Blood episode 6.04:
Waiting sucks! I have a feeling that Ben/Warlow…aka Benlow will tell Sookie that he did not kill her parents. Just a feeling could be wrong. She is shown with Lafayette in the other promo trying to summon her parents (to learn the truth)
Here are some caps from the promos:

A new episode of True Blood aired tonight. The fourth installment for season six was titled “At Last”. HBO posted the Inside the Episode video below: So what did you think of tonight’s episode fans? Sound off in the comments.
…..and it was good! It was one of my favorite scenes. I am just going to hit the highlights this time around so let’s go!
While the mistress of this site is away on vacation, I get to play on the site and write a review for the first episode of the sixth season of True Blood. Hold on to your hats!
HBO showed a trailer before the Game of Thrones season premiere last night that included new footage for their Spring 2013 line up. Many shows were featured Newsroom, VEEP and yes True Blood. Some of the scenes were already shown in the teaser trailer but there were a few new items in this video.
Looks like Jason and Niall (Ok that is Rutger Hauer..he could be Macklyn but he looks too comfortable in that kitchen) are in Jason’s house? or is it Sookie’s?
This looks like Sookie walking through the woods:
The HQ video is below from youtube. The gallery has the True Blood screencaps. Waiting sucks but at least the new season will be here soon!! (ok not till June 16th but time flies)
True Blood season 5 finale was one that left fans hollering for more! Well it definitely left them yelling during some scenes! I know I was really surprised by the turn of events at the end.
Here are a few of my “favorites” from the finale:
Russell finally had his drink of a whole fairy in episode 5.11. Unfortunately for him that left him quite drunk on fairy blood and allowed Eric Northman to suprise him and stake him. At first it looked like the fairy blood may have made him immune (we could see light coming from his face). Even Eric looked surprise but then the light stopped glowing and the staking did result in is final death. With one last word F#ck, Russell Edginton was no more.
Eric finally had revenge against Russell for killing his parents. Took 1000 years but revenge was sweet. I’m sad to see Denis O’Hare leave the show but it was time to say goodbye to Russell. (I also liked how Eric was able to do this in front of Sookie and the fairies. It was because of Sookie’s fear vibe that Eric was able to get there in time to stop Russell from killing more fairies)
Loved how protective Eric was towards Sookie. Nora caught a whiff of Sookie and was enthralled. Sookie asked Eric to please tell his sister not to eat her (or something to that effect). He made Nora swear on Godric that she would not harm Sookie. It was funny to see Nora sniffing away!! Eric also was chastizing Nora for having such little self control. (sounded so much like a big brother there!)
Oh Baby!! Times 4!
Andy Bellefleur had a surprise visit from the very pregnant fairy Maurella. A lot of the scene showing Maurella delivering the set of quadruplets was a bit over the top for me. The part I did like was the look on Andy’s face when Holly (who was a saint for helping deliver the babies) handed Andy the baby. He looked like such a proud poppa.
Season 6 will have Andy raising 4 female fairies. It’s his duty as the dad to raise them and make sure that at least half make it to adulthood. Little did Andy know when he had sex with Maurella he’s be a dad a short time later to some “alien” babies! Not sure he knows what he is in for!
Sam Pretty Fly!
Sam Merlotte shifted into a fly to help Luna rescue Emma. While Luna skin walked as Steve Newlin and shifted back into herself on tv, Rosalyn was hollering her head off.
One of the grossest but coolest ways we’ve seen a vampire meet the true death so far on True Blood.
Jason and Eric battle of words…
The tumblr link here has a snippet of the back and forth word exchange between Eric and Jason. So funny to see them going at it like that.
Jason and Sookie are sharing some brother sister time during a drive (on their way to the vampire Authority). Eric hitches a ride on the truck and asks Jason to let him in. Upside down and pleading “Pleeaaassseeee”. It was a bit of fun comic relief in a pretty tense episode. It felt good to giggle at the Viking Vampire.
Tara opened up Pam’s jail cell even though it was silver. Yes the burn on her hand was very worth it. Pam plants one heck of a kiss on her progeny! It has been hinted that they would become a couple and finally some spark is on screen! Season 6 will hopefully have this couple steaming up the screen!
Pam…free at last!
One of my favorite moments from the finale was seeing Pam and Eric together in a scene again. The smile on their faces and the way Pam placed her hand on Eric’s chest spoke volumes to me. Despite being released by her maker there is still a strong bond there and one I hope we see more of again in season 6.
Another interesting element to this photo is the look on Sookie’s face in the image above. It almost looks like she is a bit jealous perhaps of the relationship between Eric and Pam. Sookie does not know that Eric released Pam. Pam is not very fond of Sookie (and based on the look on Sookie’s face the feeling might be mutual).
Sookie and Eric
The finale brought Sookie and Eric together to help rescue Pam, Jessica and Bill from the Authority. They were successful in getting Pam and Jess out but neither Sookie nor Eric were able to reason with Bill. He drank the rest of the sacred blood and wound up liquifying in front of them. (after Bill was pretty mean to Sookie). Both Eric and Sookie appeared quite affected by Bill’s ‘demise’. The screen cap image above showed Sookie and Eric sharing a moment together. There really have not been many scenes in season 5 with the two of them (or at least with Sookie not being ticked off at the Viking)
Amazing and MINE…
Nora and Eric sneak Sookie, Jason and Tara into the Authority in plain sight. The guard catches a whiff of Sookie (who’d been with full fairies and picket up their scent) and comments how the blonde smells amazing. Eric replies yes she is amazing and MINE. Loved hearing Eric say that. Sookie does not like to “belong” to any vampire but she will need some protection. Hopefully season 6 will have Eric staking a claim to the telepathic waitress.
Sookie and Eric tried to reason with Bill Compton to not drink the kool aid/sacred blood. No amount of reasoning or pleaded worked. After chugging the vial of blood we see Bill start to dissolve and look like he was liquifying and meeting a final death. That scene was truly a shocker for me. I screamed my head off! Never in a million years did I think Alan Ball would allow Bill Compton to finally die.
Well that shock would soon be replaced with a bigger shock. We see Bill rise up from the blood in the same fashion we had seen Lillith rise up from the blood. Bill now newly incarnated shrieks in a primal scream (much like the way Lilltih did) and is sporting a new set of really long fangs.
The end credits of the finale show Eric telling Sookie to RUN!! Didn’t take long for fans to call this version of Bill Compton “Billith”. I know the whole “Lillith” story line was not one of my favorite ones from season 5. I’m a bit apprehensive that now in season 6 we will be seeing another variation of this perhaps with Bill taking on the role of what might be a vampire “god”. What will this Bill be like in the new season? Who knows. The writers have not yet started the new season work. I just hope it makes sense and not just another silly story line.
These were just some of my favorite scenes from the True Blood season 5 finale. Feel free to leave your comments or add what you enjoyed in the finale. Fangover therapy day 4 hopefully will help fans in their withdrawal from the show. Waiting sucks!
