HollywoodLife.com chatted with Pam herself about next summer’s big premiere — find out what made her gasp!

True Blood‘s fifth season premiere is still more than six months away, but Kristin Bauer Van Straten says the first scripts have already been sent out — and they’re good. “I just read the script, we got it yesterday,” Kristin told HollywoodLife.com on Oct. 26 while promoting her appearance on the Oct. 30 episode of ABC’s Once Upon A Time. “I saw it come into my e-mail box and it said ‘script 501’ and I literally [gasped.]”

News of the premiere’s title, “Turn, Turn, Turn,” broke that same day — and Kristin says it couldn’t be more appropriate.

“After I read it twice, I noticed the title and thought, ‘Oh my God, that’s perfect!'” she told us. “It’s so brilliant how each story line, from where it left off at the end of last year, hits a major fork in the road that we’re launched into for the first episode of the new season. It’s very exciting.”

Of course, Kristin couldn’t reveal exactly where those forks will take us, but when I asked if there were some major changes in store for Pam, she literally responded with an evil laugh. And it was amazing.

“The reason I read it twice was that it left me wanting more so badly, and my only option was to read it again,” she added. “These writers are really amazing.”

So what big changes are you hoping for in season five? Drop your wish list in the comments section below, and check back tomorrow for my interview with Kristin about her role as Maleficent on this Sunday’s Once Upon A Time!
