True Blood Episode 57 Promo “Cryptic Message” Screencaps

Here are the screen caps for the promo video for episode 5.09 “Cryptic Message”. This one features Lafayette and Sookie. Loved Lafayette in this video “Dead people…stop being so cryptic!!”

The episode description had a mention that Sookie would be getting a message from Gran. Sounds like Lafayette may have been the one delivering the message! Sookie and Lafayette are going through some of Gran’s scrapbooks, and saved memorabilia including a news article concerning Sookie’s parents.  Sookie is very surprised to learn that Bud Dearborne was the one who found their bodies. Pretty sure Bud might have been ‘glamoured’ into forgetting some key details.

First Look At True Blood’s Fae Queen


True Blood fans had a chance to see the first 3 minutes of season 4 premiere episode on HBOGo this past Sunday. If that tease was not enough fans will have another chance to see even a bit more on June 5 on HBOGo. HBO ran a short trailer last night and I noticed this new image in the trailer (Posted above)

This image appears right after the scene where Sookie is shown using her “energy hands” and is zapping someone. I believe this is our first glimpse into the Fae Queen Mab. The casting call for her character:

[QUEEN MAB] Late 30s – 40s, a powerful, regal, magnificent woman who commands a mysterious realm, and she’s filled with rage when her plans are thwarted…UPDATE: Cast by Rebecca Wisocky

The mysterious realm we now know is the Fae Land where Sookie beams up with Claudine. Just wonder now what the “plans are thrwarted”  part of the casting call will mean. Some fans feel that the Queen wants to keep Sookie there forever to use her powers to help wage a war with other supernaturals. Waiting sucks and now even more!

So don’t blink when you watch any of the True Blood sneek peeks and trailers or you just might miss out on some very interesting clips. Tune in on HBOGo on June 5 to see what Alan Ball has in store for us in Season 4 of True Blood.

True Blood Season 4 Sneaky Peek Clues



The True Blood season 4 video that aired on ExtraTV yesterday was touted as a sneek peek. HBO once again is being extra sneaky! Yes that is sneaky not just a sneek peek! There were some new images shown in the newest video trailer for season 4. SPOILER HEAVY post!


Yes fans we have Eric Northman doing a psa for the AVL! Of course they would use the Viking Vamipire tax paying sheriff of area 5 for the tv. More footage was shown of the protesters outside of Fangtasia.


Baby vampire Jessica Hamby is shown strutting in by herself (perhaps) into Fangtasia. (our little baby girl vamp is growing into her fangs)


Eric Northman was not the only vampire though that is in front of the cameras. (Bill  with Nan in his office. that is quite a sly smirk)



Wonder what he means by take care of it. (no surprise it means he will place nice and be the AVL Vampire liason representative perhaps?)


In the sneek peek  Bill Compton looks like the AVL poster vampire. Nan Flanigan is shown in Bill’s office with a warning to not take human livves. (hey he is mainstreaming and does not imbibe human blood well not that much of it..)


We see a very smiley Portia at one of the public save face PR events the AVL is perhaps hosting in front of the cameras.



(looks like a ribbon cutting ceremony) The AVL will probably build a few community amenities-hospitals, centers to help boost the “good vampire” image and hopefully repair the damage done by King Russell Edginton’s televised tirade. Could the AVL have Bill Compton running for a politcal office perhaps?  He looks very much like a politician in this video.


Jason Stackhouse is still tied up but we did see the possiblility that there was another critter in the room. The images  show another Hotshot citizen: Felton Norris. UPDATE: Looks like Crystal may be the one biting?





Jason is pleading and Felton is saying “as long as we get what we want” ie have Jason “turned” into one of them. Crystal is shown next to Jason so there is definitely someone/something else in the shed. (and it looks like a shifter in panther form)


This capture shows Felton Norris and Crystal in same frame/shed. Nodding in unison.

s4trailer042Felton is seen almost nodding in the same way that the black cat does. (and Crystal seems to be nodding back-perhaps Felton is the one in critter form doing the biting?) UPDATE-looks like blood on Crystal’s mouth!



Sam gets a bit of nookie for once.



The very hot Antonia (or so I think) portrayed by Paola Turbay. The latina is seen in an office and Sam is asking were you sent here to seduce me. This one may be a video sequencing switcheroo. It could be also another female trying to woo Sam?


Jessica is seen in a bathroom stall saying to Hoyt (I can eat whoever I want). Does not bode well for the JessOyt romance.


Alcide is in Sookie’s home. (perhaps monitoring the repairs on the Stackhouse home).

This looks like Sookie and Bill crossing paths in a hallway. (looks like Sookie)


The wiccans are still busy with another circle ceremony. In this new one we see Marnie re-animate a dead bird.








Definitely a different looking “altar” in this ceremony. Perhaps Marnie is practicing reanimation before taking on a dead human body? Is Alan Ball using the storyline from one of the Sookie Stackhouse novels where they were going to contact the famous vodoo priestess and that led to Hadley’s true death in the books? (and put his own spin on it  and have Marie raise a dead powerful witch?)


My theory that perhaps Eric Northman does NOT bite Marnie may have some truth. (ok he probably bit her but not in this video) The prior videos show Eric going in for a bit of Marnie while standing. But in this sneek peek video Marnie is on the floor on her back. We see Eric going in for the bite in the image above but at the last minute is shown turning his head to his left.


Oh Mr. Northman what big fangs you have....




Someone or something has stopped him. (who knows..could be that dang bird biting him in the gracious aplenty but perhaps this is the pre-spell scene)


Oh and almost forgot-Tara is still pissed off at everyone. Especially the vampires! UPDATE:  Jesus can be seen behind Tara to her right in the video (I’ll do a larger version of the cap). It looks like he may be taking care of Marnie on the ground. Tara mentions being attacked by a vampire (re. her attack by Franklin) and is speaking to Lafayette:


Waiting for the new season does suck very much but at least we keep getting teased with the new videos! Love to hear from other fans on what they saw in the video.
