Plus, Rob teases a ‘very interesting relationship’ between Warlow and Bill.
The cat — or, rather, the fairy-vampire — is officially out of the bag! The July 7 episode of True Blood revealed that Ben (Rob Kazinsky), the fairy who’s been charming Sookie (Anna Paquin) since he arrived in Bon Temps earlier this season, is also Warlow, the centuries-old vampire that haunts Sookie’s nightmares. And Rob is the first to admit that, yeah, the characters’ relationship is a little complicated.
“Everything that Ben says to Sookie in the previous three episodes is true,” Rob tells Access Hollywood. “He is not faking how he feels. He is not faking what he has said. … However, coming and meeting a woman and saying, ‘Hi! We’re meant to get married. I killed your parents. I’m a vampire,’ is not gonna go down as planned.”
Is Warlow A ‘Good Guy’?
Rob certainly thinks so!
“He is a victim,” Rob insists. “He’s one of the first vampires. He came from a place of sheer goodness and he’s been corrupted by vampires to serve their needs, but at his core, he is still just a fairy.”
Despite Warlow’s nasty reputation, Rob says he’s “a good guy, essentially.”
What’s Bill’s Connection To Warlow?
And the surprises aren’t over yet! The July 14 episode finds Warlow face-to-face with Bill (Stephen Moyer) — which very unexpected results.
“There’s a very interesting relationship being played out between Warlow and Bill, which is gonna explain a lot of things over the course of the season and that’s definitely worth waiting for,” Rob teases.
(Having seen the episode myself, I can assure you that the cold open will leave you befuddled.)
