EricMontreal22

HBO: True Blood

Recommended Posts

Last night's episode felt like it was more a setting up the pins kind of episode. Not a whole lot really happened, but I liked seeing Godric and how Eric was made. Loved the scenes with Eric getting angry at the Texas vamps and Sookie sticking up for herself.

Jason, he reminds me of George W. more and more every week. It can't be a coincidence, but I don't understand AB's point. I hope Jason and Sookie cross paths next week. I think someone mentioned Jason saying Sookie, but I think it may be the other way around.

True Blood at Comic-Con: A Twilight Diss, Fang Malfunctions & More

True Blood, Stephen Moyer, Anna Paquin HBO/ Jaimie Trueblood If you think True Blood is crazysexycool now, wait until you see what 's coming up next. We caught a glimpse of clips for upcoming episodes at today's Comic-Con panel and we can tell you this: We finally get to see Michelle Forbes' character (Maryanne) revealing her true self, which is the horned maenad creature that attacked Sookie (Anna Paquin) a few eps back, and, we must say, Michelle looks killer in the get-up! She is stirring up even more trouble than before and it goes way beyond just getting people high, horny and black-eyed at her parties.

We also got our first good look at Evan Rachel Wood's vampire queen in a trailer-ending scene where she is feasting on someone and comes up for air with a face full of blood to say, "Wanna join me?" I can safely say that everyone in the audience did want to join her. She looks simply delicious as the queen.

And, the battle between the Fellowship of the Sun goody two-shoes and the vampires turns into a "national vampire disaster." But, it looks like Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) might be having second thoughts about where his loyalties lie. (Finally!)

As if that weren't enough to excite fans, show creator Alan Ball had this special announcement…

True Blood: The Drink:
They teased us before about it, but this time it's for real: a True Blood drink will be on the market on Sept. 10. Alan joked that it's a mix of a cabernet wine with blood, "vodka, Vicodin, Viagra and ecstasy" and that's it's "completely illegal." Imagine that?

Kidding aside, he said it's "a very tasty blood orange soda" that has "all natural ingredients." And, it's bottled in the same bottle you see on the show. How cool is that? Oh, and you can pre-order it at www.hbo.com. The

Love Triangle:

Will the love triangle between Bill (Stephen Moyer), Sookie, and Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) get played out on screen as it does in the books? "Yes," said Alan. And, that is all he said on the topic. Stephen, though, said, "I'm not sure that Bill is just going to roll over and let it happen. I think he's going to fight his hardest and maybe not be quite as polite as he has been." When asked why Eric is so smitten with Sookie, Alexander joked, "Just look at her. I'm sorry, Stephen." An audience member then asked Alan if that was blond hair we saw on the person in bed with Sookie in the new clips and Alan said, "I have no idea what you're talking about." We'll soon see…

Lafayette's Hustle:
"I think Lafayette's hustle is supreme and he's figured out that it's not going to work for him to get him out of the situation," said Nelsan Ellis. "So now I think he's rethinking his hustle and maybe he's going to stop doing it." When the crowd gave a collective sigh of disapproval, Nelsan, added, "But, we'll see."

Sam Merlotte & Daphne:
"He gets a little bit lucky with Daphne," said Sam Trammell, who blushed at the roar of applause from the audience for him, "but Sam's a real magnet for abuse this year in a lot of ways. I'm just trying to survive this year. But Sam's journey in this year, and hopefully years to come, is really sort of sparked by Daphne and what she teaches him and whether he grows from that or regrets it, we 'l have to see."

Fang-tastic!:

"The hard ones stay in very well but the rubber ones tend to fly out of your mouth if you talk too quickly," says Deborah Ann Woll (Jessica) of the fake fangs the actors have to wear, "which very hard and embarrassing when you're trying to be cool and immortal." Added Stephen, "For the first season, I had two tiny little indents because they are really sharp." "Yes, they are," Anna replied coyly to the audience's delight. "I make no comment," joked Stephen as the couple shared a romantic glance at each other. Love was in the air.

Sookie & Bill Baby?:
When asked if we'd be seeing a half-vampire/half human baby anytime soon, the audience booed loudly to the Twilight reference, and then Alan asked, "What?" When it was explained to him, he came back with a definitive, "Oh, no. In our show, our vampires are either full-out vampires or they're not vampires."

New Books!
: Charlaine Harris, the writer of the Sookie Stackhouse novels, tells the crowd that she just signed a contract for three more books, which will take us through 2014. The next book is out May 2010.

Alrighty then.....did y'all see last night's episode? Another good show.

I wonder if that Preacher man has some kind of telepathic ability that hasn't been shown to the audience because of the way he reacted to Sookie and whats-his-face. Or is he simply a maniac that doesn't trust newbies? I'm interested in how all this will play out now with Jason boinking his wife and how/when he'll find his sister.

I KNEW Daphne was up to no good. Hah. Maryanne really likes to put people to screw, doesn't she? :P And does anyone else thing those orgy scenes look a little too "real"??? I mean, wowza.

It's great to see Lafayette back and even though he is now physically free of his chains, he's not free in his mind. I like the way this story is going. Actually, there's not one story on this show that I'm not enjoying.

There's an article on EW or People about the saturation of vampire stories both on the big screen and the small. And at the end of it, they said to just keep True Blood and get rid of the others! :)

I had one more revelation last night that y'all may or may not have discussed (I may have missed it). When I first saw Maryanne, I knew I had seen the actress somewhere before and now I think I remember - GUIDING LIGHT as Sonia/Solita. Right? RIGHT???

Last night was not my favorite episode. Maybe because I watched the first season from start to finish, but I just feel like there are too many questions, and too many things the audience isn't in on. Last season, if there were some twist or turns they were just that- a twist or a turn. I just don't think I know where this season's taking me. There's still time.

I'm happy Daphne was exposed, but a moment too late. From what I'm to understand, Maryanne's only a blip in the book and so the writers have really taken liberties with this character.

I feel the "war on vampires" is too ridiculous. Do they honestly think they stand a chance? I have a hard time perceiving this group of idiots as anything close to a threat.

Nice to see Bill has a dark side.

There was a trailer for the rest of the season shown at Comic con. I would say it's more teaser-y than spoilery but be advised.

It looks like the stories will be converging although not as much as I hoped. It seems to me that Bill/Sookie/Eric are still separate from Tara/Maryann/Sam. Hopefully that isn't the case. I really want to see Sookie, Tara, Sam and Lafayette find their way back to each other in some way.

Right, her name is Michelle Forbes and she's been on everything (Homicide, Prison Break, Battle Star Galactic the list goes on and on), including GL as Josh's love interest Sonny.

I think Steve just knew she was coming. He has a mole in the vampire camp. Stan is my guess, since Isabel seems sincere.
