In less than an hour True Blood fans will finally have a new episode to enjoy! Episode 45-“Burning Down the House” looks like it will be full of action. I added some more rehearsal photos from filming that was for this episode. The gallery below contains those images showing Alexander Skarsgard, Kristine Bauer van Straten and Stephen Moyer in full vampire mode. Waiting has really sucked for me. I saw the rehearsal and filming for this in June and have been anxiously awaitng the airing of the actual action. Images are spoiler in nature!
UPDATE: Looks like we have to wait till next week! The preview trailer for episode 4.11 did show the action in the image above (but from a longer distance:
I still say that Eric might be offering up himself in exchange for Sookie. When I watched the rehearsals neither Sookie nor Marnie were on the street. This is what it really looked like. (it’s amazing what they do in editing!)
So yes WAITING SUCKS! What will happen. (ok I know what will happen) More in speculations. Here’s a hint: Pam will take matters into her own hands.
Waiting always sucks for True Blood fans. At least the new episode 4.10 #46 will be shown tonight. The Nest posted some images on their Facebook wall that show some images from one of the promos shown above SOURCE:
This gives me more hope that there are “lingering” effects to the amnesia spell. It looks like the spell has been broken in the image above. I wrote my speculations for this episode and had the feeling that yes there will be some small effect on Eric post spell break. UPDATE: I believe that Sookie is also sad in the image above worrying about her special Fae powers that probably caused a lot of damage on a spelled vampire at the Tolerance Meeting. Maybe she is afraid that she might hurt one of the vamps she cares for by accident (waiting sucks) The review here states “Sookie will use powers she has not used before” So I definitely think she is going to show a lot of power and yes will break a spell (and in the process I think will kill one of the spelled vamps)
UPDATE: I will be adding more images to the gallery on this page every hour (hopefully) before tonight’s episode airs tonight! I also have some for next week’s episode as well (I think they are for some of 4.11). Yes teasing and waiting sucks! the other photos from the rehearsals are in the posts here:
Grattis på födelsedagen, Alex! Yes today is Alex’s birthday! It was a lot of fun wishing him an early Happy Birthday yesterday on the phone interview. He’s still in New York filming for “What Maisie Knew” and I’m sure he will have fun today. He is so amazing to support the LA Food Bank as his birthday cause this year! I let him know how much was raised yesterday and the total donated by his fans then was $3767! He was very thankful to the fans for helping him raise money for this wonderful cause! There is still time to donate:
This year’s Alexander Skarsgard Birthday Charity is the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. We are all aware that with the status of the economy tens of thousands of people across the country have either lost their jobs completely or have seen their hours cut back. While thousands of people look to places such as the food bank for assistance, the food bank has also suffered decreases in their donations. This year we ask only that you donate what you would have spent on a card and help us help those who need us most. If you can donate more, we are sure the food bank can put all donations to good use. As most of our followers know, we love doing our best for charity. Putting food on someone’s table, helping nourish and sustain a family for at least one meal, is a wonderful gift.As an added bonus, we (meaning Jenna) will take everyone’s name who donates and sign it on one HUGE card that we will ship to Alex for his Birthday. We can guarantee that he will see that card and it will be something he can stand in his bedroom and know that his fans not only love him, but that his fans do good things in his name.
Now for the rules: We have a team page set up on the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank website for credit card payments. Payments made here go DIRECTLY to the food bank and the site will tally all the donations so we can keep track of how we are doing.For international donors and those who prefer a Paypal option, please click on the DONATE button at the bottom of this post.
IMPORTANT: Paypal donors will need to put “Alexander Skarsgard Birthday” in the comments section so we can add those to the total manually. There is a drop down + sign that says “is this gift in honor/tribute of someone”. Paypal donors must click on that and enter “Alexander Skarsgard Birthday” . (screencap image below)
Ok Skarsfam, lets hit our goal of $20,000, save some trees, reduce Alex’s carbon footprint, give HQ a mailroom break and raise some money!!!

Please feel free to leave Alex a birthday wish in the comments section and I’ll send them to him (via his manager I don’t get to email the viking directly yet…) It was fun to hear the local radio station say Happy Birthday to Alexander Skarsgard -the dj was not the regular one and she was “the blonde vampire guy on True Blood” (as if we need reminding!) Here is a cute youtube video of some kids singing Happy Birthday in Swedish :
Next week’s episode of True Blood looks like it will be another crazy one! Episode 46 is the tenth episode for season 4. The video trailer is found here on the site:
The gallery below contains screncap images from that trailer. Don’t blink or you might just miss something. Spoiler in nature ! The image above is very interesting. Looks like the Fae may be back in Bon Temps! Also King Bill does take a “shot” at Eric. Sookie is going to be using all her powers to keep Eric and Bill alive it looks like from the trailer. Waiting still sucks!

Yes another wonderful magazine cover will feature Alexander Skarsgard! The Septmember 2011 Wonderland Magazine will have True Blood’s Eric Northman. The image above shows the cover image. (looks like his brother Gusaf here I think).

True Blood episode 4.08 “Spellbound”? aired last night. Here is my take on the Good, Gross and the Bad from this one.
Jason To the Rescue
Yes fans saw baby vamp Jessica break free from her silver chains (great job there big daddy King Bill) in the last episode and head towards the sun. MarniA’s spell had her walking to her doom. Cue Sheriff Jason to the rescue! He runs in just as Jess starts to go all crispy critter and knocks her to the ground and kicks the door closed. (I get the feeling Jason has had a lady friend on the ground like that before and used his legs to close the door..just saying). I was glad Jessica did not die the true death. She did suffer some burns and almost bit into Jason. Luckily for Jason she gained control again and kissed Jason (right on the lips!) Jason kisses back. Continue reading →
True Blood aired episode 4.07 “Cold Grey Light of Dawn” on Sunday night and it was a doozy. True Blood fans probably never thought they would see so many of their favorite vampires awake during daylight hours. This episode did look like season 4 might be the vampire season in the sun! It did not bode well for one of vampires and the episode ended with one of the fan favorites seeing the sun for the first time since she was human.
