True Blood Season 4 Premiere Episode Screen Caps Fae War?

4-01053

The new sneek peek into the premiere episode for True Blood’s season 4 was just shown on HBOGo. Looks like we finally get to meet “Claude”. When we last saw Sookie and her grandpa Earl they were getting ready to RUN! This video shows us what happens next.

Queen Mab is not too pleased with Miss Stackhouse and orders the others to get them. Lots of flying balls of light (from the Fae) are thrown trying to capture Sookie and her g-pa. Lo and behold another Fae is there to help out.

4-01037

Looks like perhaps Claudine coming to their help

The images below are from the latter part of the video (the newer action). I have not heard the audio yet so don’t know exactly what is going on but you can pretty much tell that Sookie and Earl make the leap hopefully back to Bon Temps. It does look like there may be a start to a war between the Fae. You can see how Sookie was helped out by Claude and Claudine and perhaps their fellow Fae Clan.

Waiting does SUCK!

True Blood Fans, Filming Fun and Fangover

dsc_0001

True Blood cast and crew are absolutely amazing. I had the pleasure of watching some of the on site filming for season 4 and was amazed to see all the “magic” that they create just for the fans. The filming the prior night went on till 5 am yet the cast and crew were there again at 8 pm and started filming at 9 pm and were there again till the wee hours of the morning again.

Photos during filming were not allowed so I only took photos during the rehearsals. For fans that do not know filming involves a LOT of just waiting around for the scene to be set up, camera worked out, stand ins, reshoots and all sorts of other fun. What we see on screen is truly magic. What they do behind the screen to get it to us in the final format is truly appreciated by this fan. Definitely have a fangover today!

dsc_0025

The images in the gallery below are spoiler in nature. I still have more to post. Alexander Skarsgard was amazing to all the fans who were able to get close enough to ask for a photo or autograph! (awwww)

dsc_0076

Promise to post more soon. This site if fan run for the fans. I try to minimize the ads on the site and do donate profits to charity. (so sorry about the ads! )

True Blood Season 4 Filming Photos

s4p2012

New images have surfaced online for True Blood’s season 4 filming. This looks like it is for episode 4.11.

Source: TBItaly

Alexander Skarsgard and Kristin Bauer van Straten can be seen in the photos. The woman on the ground appears to be Annie Fitzgerald (character of Kirsch). This looks like the action that takes place right after 4.10 (which was filmed 5/14/11)

[nggallery id=256]

here is a close up of the woman/vampire on the ground. It also looks like there is are some vamp “remains” on the ground also:

Annie Fitzgerald will portray the character of Kirsch

NOTE: the city location for the photos is the same location for the “Moon and Goddess” emporium? Looks like AB is weaving a windy web in season 4!

Digging Deeper into True Blood’s Season 4

s4p2008

True Blood fans had a chance to hear the cast give their commentary for the “Digging Deeper into season 3”. The cast gave their take on some of the key scenes from season 3. It was a great way to revisit some of the past season to get ready for the upcoming season. At the end of the video additional clips for season 4 were shown while the ending credits ran.

The images in the gallery located here are from just those season 4 clips. It was interesting to see some new footage! Now even more questions!

d019

As expected Marnie (shown above) will be causing a lot of trouble for the vampires. She is shown almost mid “possession” in a few of the screen caps (not only does her face change but her eyes especially take on a new person) The two caps below show the transformation:

Lots of amazing action in the images below! More discussion to follow! Don’t blink when watching any of the new promos or you will miss something!  SPOILERS!

Looks like Tara goes to stake Eric Northman!

True Blood Spoilers Fae Masters of Illusions

The full six minute video was released by HBO for True Blood’s season 4 premiere episode. Fans now know that Sookie saw through the beauty and peace that was the world where Claudine brought her. She tried to warn Barry not to eat the glowing fruit. (too late) She learns from Grandpa Earl that he was in his mind only away from Bon Temps a few hours when in fact it had been over 20 years.

Was it her gift that made her realize that something was off in this world. Or was it the fact she did not eat the glowing fruit? Not even the Fae Queen Mab could force Sookie to eat the fruit. Once Sookie throws the fruit on the ground the illusion spell is broken. The fruit seems to rot in front of her eyes (she had already seen some of the other fruit covered  in maggots). The fruit on the ground seemed to open up the eyes somehow of the other humans present so perhaps this helped break the “magic”. The Fae must have an ability to drain the magic from the ‘hybrid”  humans who have the fae blood.

s4p2068

Sookie was able to fend off Queen Mab’s forced feeding of the glowy fruit by using her “energy”/light hands. Do all of the humans with Fae blood have this power (in AB’s world that is)?  What was interesting to see in the portion of the sneek peek was the new “FaeLand”. Did the zapping break down the walls between the illusion?

s4p2159

Not only did the land change but the Fae appearance was very much changed. Queen Mab is shown above after being zapped by Sookie. Yes her features are more troll in nature. Another interesting item I noticed was how her jewelry also seemed to change. Her necklace changed from a glittering beautiful intricate piece of gold to what look like tarnished simplistic chain.

Does the power to create the illusion for the fae come from having humans eat the fruit and then they can somehow harvest their power? Mab did mention the term “harvest” since so many of her kind spread their “seed” among the humans. If the Fae are able to have enough magic to pull off such illusions why can’t they keep the magic going when Sookie zaps the tree? The tree seemed to be the source of the magic glowy fruit.

Barry’s fairy godmother -Lloyd also seemed to be wearing an intricate necklace. (shown in the screen cap above) The piece seemed be contain a monogram of some sort (an H perhaps, some parts also look like the letter C).  The video did not show many of the other Fae in the barren land so I can’t tell whether or not Lloyd also changed in appearance or if his neckace also lost it’s magic.

Sookie’s godmother Claudine is shown in the image above and she is wearing a beautiful lace gown and earrings but no necklace. Does the necklace a Fae wears relate to the “clan/family/type” of Fae they are? Claudine’s appearance did not seem to chane the way Mab’s did for Sookie. Claudine has also been shown in Season 3 using her “energy/magic/light” hands on Bill Compton (when she felt threatened). Claudine also seems to be wearing the same dress as she did when we first met her in season 3. (and still no necklace there either)

quicktime-playetbs3-09002002

Photo credit: TBS.09 Bill Compton being zapped by Claudine

Does her clan of Fae still have their power? How did they avoid being “drained of their power” or have their light stolen by the vampires?  Was a special “deal made”? When Queen Mab was trying to force Sookie to eat the fruit it did look like Claudine stepped towards Sookie perhaps in an effort to “help” supplement her magic. (it looked like that in the video). Claudine did seem surprised to “hear” Sookie saying to Earl that they needed to leave since it was a trap. (telepathically communicated but Claudine said the word “trap” outloud). Claudine may have been following Queen Mab’s orders to bring in Sookie but may not have had the full knowledge of her plans.

Fans learned that the Fae have the power of illusion very early on in this video. Does this ability to trick and hide true appearance also apply perhaps to some of the other supernaturals on the show? Will we also see more gifts of illusion from other supernaturals on the show? The witches have been shown doing their magic circle ceremonies. Will we find out that not everything is what it appears with this group?

The vampires on the show have already been shown to possess different “gifts”. Eric was shown flying in  season 2 (we don’t see him fly mid air but we see him take off for flight) Fans also did see Bill use the gift of mimicry in season 3 finale when he imitated Eric’s voice on the phone.  Bill also was able to trick Queen Sophie Anne in the season finale. The  Queen is shown at Bill Compton’s home anticipating “tasting” Sookie since she was a Fae. How did Sophie Ann know that Sookie was fae? Hadley did tell Sophie Anne of Sookie’s gift of telepathy. Does having telepathy  automatically mean Sookie was a Fae?  If so how did Hadley know? (probably the Queen may have said something about the mythology of Fae and how enticing they are to vampires over some pillow talk)

Bill is a vampire but he sure is showing some of the traits of the Fae trickster-Puck. I wonder if Alan Ball is delving into some of the mythology and applying the traits to the vampires and other supes on the show. It was great to see in the new promo how there is a darker and sinister side to the Fae. I was getting tired of the hippy dippy happy FaeLand action being shown in the new season promos.

Bill Compton was Sophie Ann’s procurer and did have an extensive file on Sookie and her family (we saw that in Season 3 episode 2 when Franklin -King Russell’s investigator found the files in Bill’s home).

3x02_0913

Bill’s paperwork on Sookie’s family tree went back quite a few generations. Earl Stackhouse’s name was circled and so was Sookie’s. (cap shown above) How did Bill come to realize that Earl also had the special “gift”? It was never said how long Bill was “watching” the Stackhouse family but it seemed to go beyond just watching Sookie. Sookie was made aware of this “file” by King Russell who presented it to her when she was brought to his home.

3x06_0403

Photo credit: ©2011 HBO episode 3.06 Sookie getting her file from King Russell

Sookie’s reaction was always a bit of a sticking point for me. Ok I know you were just forcibly brought to the King’s home and all but it did not seem that the file was that big a deal to her. (she did shed a tear) But I don’t know if she had the time to see that her name and Earl’s was circled. Did that not raise any warnings or “flags” that there was a danger ahead for her that the vampires wanted her for a reason?

Hadley may have mentioned that her grandpa Earl also had the “gift”. Eric learned of the reason why Queen Sophie Anne was interested in Sookie only after feeding from Hadley who whispers in his ear the reason. Eric did give Hadley some of his blood after feeding from her so perhaps in season 4 he will be able to track Hadley (in case Sookie looks for her cousin).

Hadley wanted Sookie to check and see whether or not her son Hunter also had the “gift of telepathy”.(episode 3.09)  Rather than feel happy about this Hadley seemed terrified for her son. Even Hunter seemed to know that he might be a danger. He warned Sookie before his mom took him away saying “she knows “. I thought that the she he was saying was Queen Sophie Anne but could the “she” mean a fae? Did Hunter have visits from a godmother ? Hunter lived with his father not Hadley so Hadley might not know he was getting special visits.

Waiting sucks and now even more questions for the new season are in our minds. It seems that for every question answered there are 3 more raised. Would love to hear from others on what they see in the new promos.

The screen caps for the first part of the sneek peek into season 4 premiere are found here on this site. The caps for the last 3 minutes of the sneek peek are found here. All the images to date are organized under the screen cap heading in case you want a second look at any of the “action”.  HBO on Demand will be showing the full first two episodes for season 4 as soon as it is available (according to the end of the sneek peek video commercial it should be the week of  6/27/11) Fans will be able to watch the full first TWO episodes of the new season on HBO on demand!

True Blood Spoilers FaeLand Shakedown

The new sneek peek for True Blood’s season 4 showed fans a whole new side of FaeLand. Sookie Stackhouse is surprised to see her grandpa Earl there and how he is unaware that so much time has really passed.

s4p2006

One of the most touching moments for me was when Earl asks Sookie whether Gran’s passing was peaceful or not. As fans know her death was very unpeaceful and horrible. Earl has tears in his eyes and Sookie showed much kindness by lying to him that yes she had a peaceful end.

s4p2007

It must have hurt Sookie to lie to him but it was better that he not know the truth. That death is still one of the most gruesome ones I had ever seen on the show and yes I still miss Gran. Sookie starts to notice how odd it was that Earl had not realized how much time had passed. Just then she sees this creature walking through the crowds in FaeLand:

s4p2020

s4p2022

Sookie realizes that no one else is noticing the odd creature. The fruit must be masking the true “nature of the Fae”. She also notices that the fruit itself is not what it seems at first. The fruit is also “masking” it’s appearance. (oh and ewww yay who wants some maggot fruit now?)

s4p2034

Sookie starts to communicate with Earl using their shared gift of telepathy to warn him. Claudine “hears’ them when the word “trap” is mentioned. Cue Queen Mab making her grand entrance:

s4p2045

So now fans finally start to see the web Alan Ball is weaving with the Fae. Queen Mab is “harvesting” the humans who have fae blood to keep them away from the vampires. Sookie is blamed for having Bill discover their existence. Sookie tries to assure Mab that you can be danged sure she won’t let that happen again!

Queen Mab tries to force Sookie to eat the glowy fruit in order to keep her in control and that does not go so well for the Queen. The screen caps below answer the question raised in the earlier promo of “who does Sookie zap”.

s4p2105

Not only does she zap Queen Mab but her power also causes the “tree” that is the source of the fruit to also get zapped. That does not end well for all of FaeLand. Was it all an illusion? Or did Sookie’s power cause it all to come crumbling down?

s4p2120

The zapping not only effect the tree but yes Queen Mab:

s4p2115

The cap above shows Mab’s appearance start to change to it’s true nature. The walls of FaeLand look as if they are bleeding and the walls come crumbling down. So yes Sookie Stackhouse brings FaeLand  down!

s4p2128

It almost looked like Mab was part of the tree in the image above.

s4p2138

Buh Bye Orange Glow FaeLand! Hello Apocalyptic FaeLand! Yes all of a sudden we see the non colorized version of FaeLand.

s4p2139

Looks like someone's Godmother was using a whole lotta purdy-making makeup! LOL

(Ok Loved the makeup effects in this clip so far) The Fae holding Sookie are now shown in their true form. It also looked like Mab may have not been a female in some of the caps (the features almost appeared masculine). The new world is barren and colorless: Only Mab’s eyes seem to have color in this world.

s4p2150

s4p2159

Well with Orange Glow FaeLand in shambles Sookie and Earl look like they need to RUN!  It also looked like most of the Fae disappear when their true nature is shown. I could only see the female Fae that was holding Sookie trying to force her to eat the nasty fruit.

s4p2164

So the true plan has been revealed. So why did Queen Mab harvest the humans with Fae blood? Yes she said “Why” she was doing so but I don’t think that is the WHOLE STORY! Some season 4 episode summaries and later episodes show a bit of a “battle” will happen on the show. Perhaps the Fae will wage war on the Vampires! Oh waiting really really SUCKS now!

Another interesting item that a fan on the I heart Bookies facebook fan page pointed out was the “absence of light’ in the images. Claudine had said how Bill was trying to steal Sookie’s light! Queen Mab says how the vampires almost drained her kind dry-perhaps also they are able to steal their light! Sookie’s power shows a bright ray of light zapping. The Fae do not seem to possess that light and their land is barren. Are they also a different type of Fae? Sookie and Claudine could the the water Fae. Queen Mab may be a different “kind” (sky?)

Would love to hear from other fans on what they see! The gallery below will show all the caps.

True Blood Season 4 New “Dinner Clues”

s401103SpoilerTV helped True Blood fans deal with their True Blood withdrawal pains by releasing the new promo for Season 4. This one was titled “I can eat who I want”. The vampire saying this in the promo is none other than baby vamp Jessica. Just who is on the “dinner menu”  for baby vamp Jessica? The screen cap above shows the beautiful Jessica with blood on her lips perhaps after taking a little nip from someone other than her beau Hoyt.

That will not bode well for her and Hoyt’s relationship. In the prior Waiting Sucks video featured at Paley fans saw Hoyt taking on some of the Fellowship protestors. One of them had the nerve to call Hoyt a “fangbanger”. Hoyt’s reply to that was of course we are “banging”! When the protestor insulted Jessica Hoyt did defend her honor and punched the man. Will Jessica’s new found freedom cause more friction with Hoyt? Jessica is looking AMAZING in season 4 and it does look  like Jessica gives the pole a try at Fangtasia! She is shown in the screen cap below getting out of her shirt right before jumping on the pole! (The lamp above her head is from Fangtasia’s or at least it looks like the one there)

s401128

Jessica is not the only vampire that will be having some “fun” in season 4! I did see a few frames that show Eric Northman confronting a certain Bill Compton all fangy. Bill is shown storming into Sookie’s home:

s401084

We see Eric Northman confronting Bill below in the new promo:

s401106

Just whether or not this action takes place immediately after Bill storms in we do not know yet. Alan Ball is the master at the art of deception when it comes to the framing and sequencing of action in the video promos! Eric does appear to look more like the “amnesiac Eric” in his hair style. Even without his memory his vampire instincts have kicked in and looks like he is taking matters into his “own hands” when it comes to dealing with Mr. Compton.

Perhaps this is the action right before we hear Eric saying “Sookie is mine” that was aired in the promo last week? In that promo Eric is shown speaking with Sookie and is wearing a black shirt. The new promo has Eric very shirtless (and looking more amnesiac).

Bill  is shown wearing  a suit and tie again in the new promo. Looks like Season 4 will have Bill perhaps be a “spokesman” for the AVL. He was shown also in a suit and tie from the earlier promo where he is doing a “ribbon cutting ceremony”. The screen cap below is from the ExtraTV sneek peek video aired 5/21/11:

tbs4extra017

More questions from the new promo I have are:

Why is Sam fighting with Andy Bellefleur? Sam is clearly shown throwing a punch!

s401114

We had seen Andy in an earlier promo pulling his gun on Sam (but many wondered if Andy were not trying to shoot someone else. This new promo definitely makes it look like Sam has a big issue with Andy.

Another big question for Sam is what the heck is he doing here? Looks like he is dragging a body bag to the bayou?

s401123

This could be a flashback scene for Sam. We did see Sam in Season 3 shoot a couple who had robbed him (he had been scamming as a con man and was double crossed). This may have been what he did with the bodies.

Jason Stackhouse is shown still tied up in the Hotshot shed and yes we did see again just what was doing the biting. This screen cap shows Jason still without any “bite marks”. This might be his first time! (poor Jason)

s401097

We do get to see Jason escape I believe in this screen cap. He is shown punching a Hotshot resident and running for his life: (might just be another action but at least he does get away)

s401130

Another question-Who are the men trying to stop Sookie shown in the first part of the video? Are they Bill’s guards? Are they planning on harming Sookie? Waiting SUCKS:

s401076

Sookie is wearing the same outfit we see in the earlier promo photos that were for episode 4.02:

TBS4.02 You Smell Like Dinner

The big question of course is who is it that is taking a nip of Sookie below?

s401142

Yes that is Eric! However I think this is a dream sequence. Eric is shown with Godric right before this (and Godric met the sun in season 2) So this look like a dream perhaps. Waiting sucks and hopefully soon we will find the answer.

s401140

Don’t forget to tune into HBO Go on Saturday for a new sneek peek! Love to hear what others “see” in this promo!
