True Blood Episode Will Leave Fans Spellbound

Yes waiting for the new episode sucks but HBO recently tweeted this:

No surprise to fans that have watched the preview. As if we needed even more reasons to watch the episode on Sunday! I did spy this action early and posted here on the much awaited “Shower Scene”.  Keep your eyes open or you might “miss somthing”.

 

True Blood Recap: Sun Walk

NY Magazine-Vulture posted the recap of last night’s True Blood episode

Exerpt:

The groundwork for an epic showdown is in place, with this week’s cliff-hanger of an ending. And if everyone was on point this episode — from Pam’s killer one-liners, to Jessica potentially taking one for the team, to Tara throwing her hat into the ring of what could turn out to be the enemy — all pales in comparison to the golden orbs of Alexander Skarsgard’s ass. It really stole the show.

The Bitch Is Back
Marnie’s still in prison, but something’s off — her Spanish is fabulous and Luis, last seen in the midst of flashback rape, is now under her control. Luis kills Katie the traitor, spilling no blood. Antonia Gravilan of Logrono has returned!

Bill decants some blood into a brandy snifter when Luis the Possessed enters the room. He’s come to deliver a message from Antonia. She’s ba-ack! “All things are possible,” he intones, and then shoots BIll. The King is about to stake Luis, but he stakes himself instead, whispering “Resurrection.”

Bill the Service-y lays it out yet again for Jessica: Antonia is a mean old necromancer from back in the day who is the only human ever to wield power over vampires. Now she’s back, using Marnie’s body as a vessel, and wants to finish what she started in 1610. Luis mentioned the Resurrection, which means tonight is the night. He instructs his sheriffs thusly: Everyone must go to ground tied up in silver today, so as not to be called to meet the sun.

I Called the Witch Doctor, and This Is What He Said
In Mexico, Lala and Jesus wait for Abuelito, who’s too busy doing his wife to tend to his grandson. It’s time for them to go home because their mission has been accomplished. Lafayette knows about his gift — he’s a medium. This is not news to Jesus or Abuelito, but no matter. This entire south-of-the-border fiasco was to show Lafayette who he really is. “You have the magic,” Abuelito says, throwing the keys back to Lala. Gracias, Abuelito. You’re a peach. On the way home, Jesus tries to stress the importance of Lafayette’s gift, but Lala’s not sure he wants to be on call to the spirit world.

Tara needs support from the coven so Marnie can exact her revenge. Holly is a wary recruit — her house burned down, and she needs to get get back on her feet. Tara’s awfully persuasive. It doesn’t take much until the original circle is united once more.

Arlene and Bad Baby are at work, watching over Holly’s date with Andy, who’s all dressed up. The date isn’t going so hot — Holly’s trying to make the best of it, despite Andy’s V-induced delirium tremens. When Holly asks if he’s okay, he bolts.

Lala’s back in the kitchen at Merlotte’s, playing peek-a-boo with Bad Baby. Bad Baby’s got his eye on someone else, though — the lady from underneath the tree. Putting a finger to her lips, she shushes Lafayette and starts singing in French. Lafayette’s yell scares Arlene, and the woman is gone.

We Can Do It Anywhere
Eric and Sookie continue their sex-a-thon, having fucked their way from the bayou to the foyer, living room, and bedroom, where they finally come to rest. Time for some pillow talk. Sookie wants Gentle Eric to remember again, despite his misdeeds. Inner turmoil strikes Ms. Stackhouse, as she starts to realize the duality of Big Baby Eric. Will she be able to love him when he’s back to his old self?

Bill shows up at Sookie’s house to bring the bad news. Sookie thanks her ex-boyfriend for letting Eric go, but Bill has other things to discuss — Eric needs to come with him, lest he rise under the influence of Marnie to meet his fiery death. BIll upends a bag full of silver chains onto the coffee table. If Sookie really loves Eric, she’ll silver him to his bed tonight.

True Blood Recap: Sun Walk.

Alexander Skarsgard Explores Eric’s Sensitive Side Q&A

Hopefully True Blood fans were able to get some rest after watching the newest episode last night. “Cold Grey Light of Dawn” was another action packed episode and for Eric fans another chance to see Eric and Sookie continue their happy reunion! (on the rug, on the chair everywhere!). Inside True Blood Blog posted the following Q and A with Alexander Skarsgard:

Fans have been dying for Eric and Sookie to hook up – what kinds of reactions have you been hearing now that it’s finally happened?

I know that people have been talking about it – but I try to stay away from the blogs and fan sites. I’m a little scared … I do meet fans in person, though, and the feedback has been great this year. It seems that people are enjoying Eric’s arc, which is great because I had a blast shooting it. I love playing “Amnesia Eric.” It’s just such a different side of him, and it’s always fun as actor to dig deeper. You learn a lot, and I definitely have this year.

Is it difficult to play a person-within-a-person?

I wanted to make sure that it was a side of Eric – not a new character. The side of him that was hidden. He’s very innocent and naïve now, but I also thought it was very important not to lose the old Eric – the predator – and the element of danger there. You’ve got to feel that to make it interesting, I think, and it’s something I focused on. You definitely see how he can get very violent, especially in those moments where he’s protective of Sookie.

In this week’s episode, “Cold Grey Light of Dawn,” there’s a drawn-out, multi-location love scene between Sookie and Eric. Was that the most involved one you’ve shot so far?

True Blood Spoilers: Cold Grey Light Of Dawn-Boston Herald

4-07t040

It is finally Sunday! New True Blood episode tonight and the Boston Herald has given fans a new reason to think WAITING SUCKS! Based on their spoilers below it looks like episode 43 will be another action filled one. SPOILER ALERT:

SOURCE:

The undead face their greatest threat in tonight’s episode of HBO’s “True Blood” (at 9 p.m.).

In “Cold Grey Light of Dawn,”  Marnie (Fiona Shaw) is gone. Her body has been taken over by the 400-year-old witch Antonia, who, as flashbacks revealed, died a gruesome death during the Spanish Inquisition and has good cause to want payback. With her powers, she can compel vampires to walk into the sunlight – to their own fiery doom.

Bill (Stephen Moyer) quickly realizes she could massacre them all. His plan to save his subjects is almost as deadly as the sun itself.

Meanwhile, Sookie (Anna Paquin) and Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) take their lovemaking to just about every part of Bon Temps it seems, much to the distress of Alcide (Joe Manganiello). Eric decides he doesn’t want his memory back if the price is losing Sookie’s love.

Tara’s (Rutina Wesley) life is saved by TMZ – sort of. Sam (Sam Trammell) uncovers his brother’s deception.Jessica (Deborah Ann Wolf) realizes the sad truth about her relationship with Hoyt (Jim Parrack), who has no idea his best friend Jason (Ryan Kwanten) is also lusting for the red-headed vampire.

Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) begins to learn just how powerful he is. Could he be key to fighting Marnie? Trouble is, she makes a great case for wanting to rid the world of vampires, one even Bill acknowledges.

At hour’s end, one familiar vamp cannot resist the siren call to daylight …

Yes waiting sucks!! At least it sounds like a few of my specultions were on target. Still can’t wait to see the episode tonight.

True Blood Season 4 Screener Spoilers

tbsccvid009

This one is not new news for fans but it is still great to get more confirmation! Yes one of the awesome critics I follow on twiter just screened True Blood’s epsidoe 4.08 and this is what he writes:

For those asking, a variation on the infamous “shower scene” is in episode 408 of #TrueBlood. That’s all I’m saying. Link to his twitter account:

I know when I found out they filmed that scene it made the rest of the week a whole lot nicer! I just hope that the fears I have concerning whether or not the shower will be a threesome are false! Only need Eric and Sookie in that scene please and thank you very much!!Waiting really sucks now!

UPDATE: Jace tweeted the following recently:

And this a few seconds ago:

And this reply to one of my friends (love the answer):

Alan Ball on True Blood | CraveOnline

 

Crave Online: Some fans think there are too many storylines on the show. What is your take on that?

Alan Ball: Well, just pay attention to the ones you like. To me, that’s part of what the show is. It’s this big, sprawling cast of characters and I love that about the show. We have a tremendous amount of really talented actors so just pay attention. Watch it more than once. Watch it three or four times so that way any questions will get answered.

Crave Online: Is it a dramatic struggle for you?

Alan Ball: No, I love it. I love having a lot of characters.

Crave Online: How do you see True Blood has influenced the popular lore of vampires?

Alan Ball: You know what? I don’t pay much attention to that stuff. I work and I work like a dog. When I go home, the last thing I want to do is read about the popular lore of vampires. for the full interview click below:

True Blood Episode Speculations “Cold Grey Light of Dawn”

4-07t022

The upcoming episode summary for True Blood : Cold Grey Light of Dawn gives a few clues into what fans may see this Sunday. Here are a few of my “speculations” based on the spoiler images from the preview trailer. SPOILER ALERT

Episode #43 (#4.07): “Cold Grey Light of Dawn”: With Marnie empowered by spirits of the dead, Bill issues an unpopular order to save vampires from the light. Eric embraces his amnesia; Luna discovers Sam’s not the man she thought he was; Lafayette expands his consciousness; Pam gets a body peel; Andy’s date with Holly doesn’t go as planned; Jessica has doubts about her future with Hoyt; Alcide and Debbie join a new pack

4-07t011

Marnie Empowered By Spirits:Bill Issues and Unpopular order

This one is not a tough one. In last episode we saw the powerful witch Antonia take over Marnie’s body. The flashback showed how the witch was able to chant a spell while burning at the stake that caused the sleeping vampires to be cast out into the sun. Well it looks like MarniA(marnie+Antonia) will be able to revive that spell and cause the vampires in Bon Temps to also go crispy critter.

We even see MarniA “fly” during a prayer session:

4-07t027

King Bill will have to order the vampires to be “chained in silver” to weaken them in order to keep them from walking out into the sun. Even Maxine a non-vampire fan seems to be shocked at what happens when a vampire walks in daylight: (a bit of comic relief when you see that the vampire looks like they were wearing hair curlers)

tcar023

4-07t037

Eric is shown wearing heavy silver chains in the first image. Perhaps the chains had to be placed on the vampire before entering his daytime sleep. The second image shows him with the “bleeds” indicating he is awake during the daytime.

Even Nan Flanigan is shown wearing a silver  type mesh veil:

Luna’s Discovery

Poor Luna. She seduces Sam or at least she thinks it was Sam only to find out it was really Tommy skin”Walking”. This one will end badly. Sam will probably be on the receiving end of a beatdown from Luna’s ex. (the Shreveport packmaster)

Pam’s Body Peel!

Dr. Ludwig is shown in the image above and it is great to see her back on the show! Looks like she will be the one to help Pam with her rotting condition. Can’t wait to see the beautiful Pam back again. more photos of the “body peel are found here”

4-07t005

Lafayette expands his consciousness

In the last episode we see Lafayette “swallow” the spirit of Jesus’ Uncle Luca. This enabled Lafayette to summon powers needed to heal Jesus from the bite of a rattlesnake. Calling upon the Santeria goddess Yemaya helped cure Jesus. Santeria is a syncretic religion which melded the  Yoruba religion from Africa and Roman Catholicism. When slaves were brought to the Carribbean they could not practice their faith so it became a merging of the Catholicism found in the Carribbean islands with their home religion from Africa.  The santeros would offer sacrifices to the statues of saints but gave them african names . Yemaya is considered to be the mother goddess of the ocean, the essence of motherhood and a protector of children. (the Roman Catholic saint name is Our Lady of Regla) It made sense that if it was Jesus’ uncle he would call upon her to help out Jesus. Not sure if Alan Ball will cover the “santeria” aspect of the magic on the show or if he will just keep it as we have seen it so far where there are “good witches” and “bad witches”. Jesus’ uncle perhaps was a practioner of white magic ie a “good brujo/witch” while Jesus’ father was an “evil” one.

Having the new “power” Lafayette perhaps is now also able to summon spirits much like Marnie. Jesus can be heard saying to Lafayette you have the power to summon/control the dead. Did “swallowing” the spirit of Jesus’ uncle Luca also open up Lafeyette’s magical power of necromancy?

We see Lafayette in the trailer in the kitchen of Merlottes and it seems that now he is able to see the ghost that baby Mikey saw after the fires (Screencap first one on this post). This is the actress cast for the character of “Mavis”.

Source:imdb
tbsccvid035
[MAVIS] Female, African American, 20-30 years old. She is a sad-eyed girl dressed in a modest 1930s dress. RECURRING GUEST STAR. Must speak with a Cajun accent. Source:imdb (Screen cap shown above)

Perhaps Mavis was a relative of Lafayette’s? But it seems that she is the good ghost that helped baby Mikey escape the fire. (and is somehow attached to the creepy doll). There is also a casting call for the character of Virgil-

[VIRGIL] 35 years old, a harshly handsome blue collar Caucasian man with a cold and ruthless streak, Virgil is seen in a flashback to the 1930s. Guest star.

I think Virgil must have been the one causing Mavis a lot of pain or perhaps kills Mavis.(or her child-she seems to want to protect  baby Mikey) Her ghost was not freed so it was attached somehow to the creepy doll. Maybe Lafayette since his powers have opened up is now able to see Mavis and somehow will protect baby Mikey. We also see Lafayette holding what looks like a baby in a sling in one of the other trailers shown.(who knows! this storyline is going all over the place)

4-07t046

King Bill Faces Gunfire?

In the preview trailer we see what appears to be someone entering King Bill’s office and shooting the King. No worries. He does not die the final death (since we see him in upcoming episodes as undead as always). This will probably Sheriff Luis under MarniA’s necromancy control. In the mayhem following the shooting MarniA escapes to cause further craziness upon the vampires. Guess King Bill is really regretting his decision to bother Marnie in the first place.

4-07t017

 Alcide and Debbie join a new pack

Not a surprise here but in episode 4.06 Alcide and Debbie said they were on their way to the new pack “run” since it was a full moon. The screencap above might show the “initiation” ceremony welcoming Debbie into the new pack. Not sure if it is Debbie but something tells me she might fall off her sobriety wagon. The new packmaster does not seem trust worthy.

Waiting for the new episode does suck! Hopefully soon HBO will release some more fun trailers to keep us guessing.
