New episode summaries surfaced for True Blood’s season 4 episodes 4.07 through 4.10. Very interesting to see just what Alan Ball has in store for fans this season. (not so sure yet…)
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. Playdates: August 7, 9, 10, 13 and 26.
UPDATE 7/24/11: We are shown part of this episode in the “sneek peek rest of season video” from Comic Con. I believe the “unpopular order to save vampires from the light” means he issues an edict that the vampires need to be “chained in silver” to keep them from running into the light:
Eric is shown with heavy chains :
So is Nan:
We are also shown some of the “Luna discovers Sam is not the man she thought he was” at least the part where Sam is fighting with Tommy. (perhaps Tommy shifts into Sam and woos Luna pretending to be Sam) Sam is shown fighting with Tommy in the video trailer:
Episode #44 (#4.08): “Spellbound”: As Bill and Marnie brace for a dangerous midnight face-off, Sookie and Eric pledge their allegiance to the King. Jason is torn between friendship and passion, and Jessica is spurned from two homes. Lafayette becomes the pawn of a tormented spirit; Tommy takes a walk in someone else’s shoes; Sam contends with yet another adversary in Marcus, Luna’s ex and the leader of Alcide’s new pack. Playdates: August 14, 16, 17, 20 and 26.
Episode #45 (#4.09): “Run”: Convalescing after her latest near-death trauma, Sookie envisions a world where there’s room for both Bill and Eric. Jesus tries to purge the restless spirit out of Lafayette; Marcus enlists Alcide to help him deal with the Sam situation; Bill and Nan Flanagan clash over their respective agendas; Hoyt asks Jason to make a delivery to Jessica. Despite Tara and Holly’s misgivings, Marnie plots her next move against the vampires, during a “Festival of Tolerance” event at Shreveport. Playdates: August 21, 23, 24, 26 and 27.
Ok I read the near death trauma as something not deadly but something very very very very fun and long awaited!!! This is another spin on words I do believe. Never mind! It does look like Sookie does face another “near death experience”. We see this in a the “rest of season sneek peek video” from Comic Con 7/22/11: the last scene shows Sookie after she is shot:
Update: We see the “Festival of Tolerance” action during the Sneek Peek rest of season video from Comic Con (but something goes very very very wrong) Sookie is shown yelling “Run” to the crowd. Perhaps a bomb is set off to kill vampires? I do believe we will have a very action packed episode in this one.
This is screen cap showing the crowd running: (is that Blackburn in the crowd-Aaron Perillo?) There may be a few spies among the vampires. (could they be plotting a coup?)
Photos from filming for episode 4.09 can be found on this site at this link: At the time of the post it was believed it was for episode 4.10 but now I belive it was for 4.09
Episode #46 (#4.10): “Burning Down the House”: As all hell breaks loose in Shreveport, Sookie summons her most potent powers yet to save Bill, in the process breaking a spell and leading Marnie/Antonia to re-evaluate her mission. Jason urges Jessica to glamour him for Hoyt’s sake; Terry drags Andy to “Fort Bellefleur” for an intervention; Alcide reconsiders his allegiances after Marcus’ fight with Tommy. Jesus, accompanied by Sookie, Lafayette and Jason, tries to breach the Moongoddess Emporium’s defenses to liberate Tara and Holly, while Bill leads a brigade of vampires committed to blowing the place to kingdom come. Playdates: August 28, 30 and 31.
UPDATE: Image above shows Alexander Skarsgard and Kristin Bauer van Straten during a break while they were fiming for season 4. Location was the site used for the Moongoddess Emporium. Note the ‘smoke’ special effects. The image seems to fit with the episode summary for 4.10 : Bill leads a brigade of vampires committed to blowing the place to kingdom come
In addition to the images I took above there were also some from cinematic debris that showed the cast practicing outside of the hotel being used for the interior shots for the “Festival of Tolerance”. (so they are also possible ones for 4.10) Image below is also shown on site on this page:
