True Blood Season 4 Sneaky Peek Clues

 

s4trailer004

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!

s4trailer008

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.

s4trailer014

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

s4trailer018

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)

s4trailer020

 

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?)

s4trailer026

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..)

s4trailer019

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.

s4trailer021

s4trailer025

(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?

s4trailer041

s4trailer046

s4trailer037

 

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)

s4felton002

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!

 

s4trailer047

Sam gets a bit of nookie for once.

s4trailer055

s4trailer049

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?

s4trailer057

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

tbs4extra057

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)

s4trailer094

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

s4trailer062

s4trailer070

 

 

tbs4extra046

 

s4trailer072

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?)

tbs4extra048

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.

tbs4extra049

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

tbs4extra051

tbs4extra052

tbs4e007

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)

tbs4e011

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.

True Blood Season 4 Premiere Episode Speculations

True Blood season 4 premiere synopsis teased fans with what they may see in the first episode of the season.In the prior entry I speculated just what we might see for  Sookie, Sam and Jesus and Lafayette. post link here:True Blood Twists ahead In this entry I’ll cover the remainder of the synopsis. This entry is a major SPOILER containing images and text that may spoil for some fans. So if you don’t want to know, don’t read on!  The teaser trailers have shown us a lot of the season 4 action (but of course not all of it) and the season premiere synopsis states:

Episode #37
“Sheʼs Not There”: Sookie journeys away from Bon Temps; Eric and Bill try to win back the human public; Jason learns that no good deed goes unpunished; Tara finds refuge in close quarters; Sam bonds with his own; Hoyt and Jessica debate the dinner menu; Jesus urges Lafayette to join a coven; Terry tries to alleviate Arleneʼs fears about the baby. (Written by Alexander Woo; directed by Michael Lehmann.) Playdates: June 26, 28 and 29

1. Eric and Bill try to win back the human public

The “antics” of King Russell Edginton has left many humans feeling not very fond of vampires. We did see grafitti painted on Fangtasia in the season 3 finale and Jessica found a burning cross on Bill Compton’s property. Just how will Eric and Bill win back the human public? I can see a big “public relations” advertising type campaign and having vamps perform public service for charities perhaps?

I do hope even though Jessica is with Hoyt that somehow she will continue to get “training” on what it takes to survive as a vampire. Bill started with her training in season 3. Just hope it is enough.

Just how we will see that part of the episode is not my only question. My bigger issue is will there be any repercussions from Bill’s attempt at cementing Eric? It does seem strange that there won’t be some type of punishment. I don’t see Eric harming Bill since he knows Bill was important in Sookie’s life at one time. Losing Bill would still cause her pain and I don’t think Eric would want that. Again just my observations. Season 4 will be showing fans the “other” side of Eric that we had glimpses of in season 3. Yes not all fans are viking vampire fans so this might be interesting for them to see. I try to stay away from the team mentality us versus them thought. It’s a fun show to watch and it doesn’t seem fun to bash at all.

The image below was from the wait is almost over video. It looks like Eric is still with all his “faculties” ie memory.

2.Jason learns that no good deed goes unpunished

Jason was featured in the waiting sucks video trailer tied to a bed looking quite a mess. Cuts, (bites) shown on his body. What did poor Jason do to deserve this? Is this the “no good deed goes unpunished”?

tbs4ws3017

Photo Credit: © 2011 HBO Waiting sucks video 3-Jason tied up and Crystal not helping!

I think the action from the screen caps of Jason being tied up are for the third episode of the season. The title is “If you love me why am I dyin'”. We might see whatever it is that Jason does to get that treatment in the season premiere.

tbs4hd011

Poor Jason! The image above does show a black blur  perhaps being the source of the pain for Jason. (and the cuts shown below from the wait is almost over promo)

tbs4003

Still will be interesting to see just how Jason adjusts to living in Hotshot.

tbs4025

3.Tara finds refuge in close quarters

Could the “close quarters” mean the cage fighting scenes that were mentioned in the casting call for episode 4.01? The character of Naomi is mentioned as being a fighter and has a love interest with a fellow fighter! I still believe that Luna is speaking of Naomi when she mentions  her ex to Sam in the waiting sucks video. There is also a question of is it Tara that Pam is throwing in the dungeon at Fangtasia (shown in the recent Wait is almost over promo). I still believe that it is Lafayette that Pam is tossing down there:

tbs4042

Photo Credit: © 2011 HBO wait is almost over screen cap. (Pam tossing someone in the basement!)

tbs4041

Photo Credit: © 2011 HBO wait is almost over screen cap. Definitely Pam doing the tossing!

Yes it looks like it could be Lafayette. But it could be Tara? Another screen image in the same trailer shows Tara holding a gun on someone in the basement at Fangtasia. Hmm could be she is breaking Lafayette out?

Tara is shown with Sookie sitting on the couch in Sookie’s home in the Invitation to the Set trailer. It looks like Tara is having a pretty deep conversation with her friend Sookie. Tara’s hair looks a lot longer than when we saw her in the Season 3 finale. Perhaps Tara is filling Sookie in on just what has been going on in her life (since Sookie was probably gone for a while in FaeLand):

Whatever it is ahead for Tara I hope she will face in style. The events of season 3 have left our usually sassy Tara a bit vulnerable. Perhaps Tara will have her very own “lie back and think of Estonia” moments!

tbs4063

4. Hoyt and Jessica debate the dinner menu

Jessica is shown at Fangtasia is the new promos for season 4. Looks like she has a lot of fun with Hoyt and also being a vampire. I wonder if the dinner menu issue has to do with her not liking  the synthetic blood. It was fun to see her eyeing the “dancer pole” at the vampire bar! It might be Jessica trying out a dance on there!

tbs4hd017

Photo Credit: © 2011 HBO Wait is almost over screen cap.

I did a capture of the “wait is almost over” to try and see if it is Jessica-this shows the next scene as well (the panther). It almost looks like it is Jessica trying out the pole!

tbs4hd018

I just can’t see Hoyt’s mom giving Jessica a lot of dinner menu ideas for Hoyt. Also doubt that Summer will be giving her the recipe for her bisquits.

tbs4wsucks6017

5. Terry tries to alleviate Arleneʼs fears about the baby

The only scenes with Terry and Arlene in the promo videos for season 4 seem to be taking place in the Halloween season. Waiting sucks video 6 also show us that the timeline does appear to jump ahead in season 4. Terry is shown with the baby!  I just hope whatever it is that Arlene is worried about makes sense. Just don’t want a demonic possesion or a storyline that does not make a lot of sense (please no maenad eyes on that baby!)

Waiting sucks. New videos help make the wait less painful.

PaleyFest True Blood Panel Paley Center video

© 2011 B.HendersonThe Paley Center released the video below from the panel held for True Blood on 3/5/11. I was present and took many many photos (ok I took over 1000 and still editing them). I will post soon. The gallery below is just a first rough pass at the first set. enjoy. Oh and also protecting copywright on the images. So please do not use without permission first. I am still finding images of mine from 2 years ago being used without permission.

Sam Trammel Teasers on True Blood Season 4

Hollywoodcrush MTV.com met up with Rutina Wesley and Sam Trammel at the recent Spike  video game awards. They were able to get some “tidbits” on True Blood’s season4.

Rutina was pretty tight lipped but they were able to get this from her “”It’s going to be a wild ride for Tara, but I think she’s going to get some more stability—for a little bit anyway,” she explained. “And some more power maybe, and I think maybe some happiness for a little bit, but that’s about all I can tell you”

Sam Trammel let on that he really does not know yet exactly what will be in store for Bon Temps shape shifter. He had this to say:

“We just started two weeks ago,” Sam said. “We got the first two scripts, they us give us scripts when they’re done, they don’t hold onto them. I’ve read two.”

From what he’s gathered thus far, via creator Alan Ball and the other writers, is that this season will delve deeper into Sam’s shapeshifting.

“I know a couple of big broad stroke things that will happen to me this year, but I don’t know a lot of the specifics,” he said. “The whole first…the first ten minutes of the first episode, you’re going to be blown away with what is happening, and that’s going to set the tone for the rest of the season,” he explained.

True Blood Season 3 Finale Video and Photos Tara and Sam

Only a few more days for the Season 3 finale! HBO released another trailer for the finale. This one features Sam cooking breakfast for Tara. I love Sam and Tara. However, just what the heck does this cooking session have to do with the finale! Ok yes I want some more follow up to the Russell and Eric baking session! Oh well. Waiting still sucks.
