Historically, the penultimate episode of each True Blood season has been heart-stopping, game-changing and, arguably, better than the finale itself. I’m not sure that’s going to be the case in season six, though the Aug. 11 episode did find several characters in dire straits — particularly Bill (Stephen Moyer), whose horrific vision of a mass vampire execution finally came to fruition.
For the past six years, we’ve watched Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) string along every supernatural suitor in Bon Temps, giving nary a f*** how her flighty indecisiveness might make them feel. But on the Aug. 4 episode of True Blood, our fickle fairy friend was given an ultimatum — one that will force her to finally choose a guy and stick to him. For real this time.
The June 23 episode of True Blood began with Warlow entering Bon Temps through some kind of crazy portal, but by the end of the hour, that was the last thing on viewers’ minds. Let’s just say Bill (Stephen Moyer) was given a sneak peek at the future of all vampires — courtesy of his divine new powers — and it’s basically the end of their world as we know it.
Picking up right where we left off, the June 16 season premiere of True Blood found Sookie (Anna Paquin) and Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) running like hell from “Billith,” whom Jason (Ryan Kwanten) aptly referred to as a “naked evil Superman.” But is Bill (Stephen Moyer) really the dark, irredeemable vampire god that Truebies have spent all year fearing he would be?
True Blood is (finally) getting back to its roots! Despite the larger-than-life drama surrounding Bill (Stephen Moyer) — or “Billith,” as he’s now affectionately known — season six mostly takes us back to the core issues we loved about the show’s first few seasons: shocking deaths, human-on-vampire conflict, and of course, Sookie’s (Anna Paquin) super-complicated love life. After getting an early look at the show’s season six premiere, we’ve got five juicy spoilers to whet your appetite.
With the season premiere of True Blood just three days away, Truebies worldwide are chomping at the bit to find out what’s in store for Sookie (Anna Paquin) and her supernatural sidekicks. In an interview with Rolling Stone, new showrunner Brian Buckner spills some major season six secrets — including the death of a fan-favorite resident of Bon Temps.
With humans closing in on them, the vampires of Bon Temps will resort to desperate measures on the upcoming sixth season of HBO’s True Blood — and it sounds like some of them may even be crossing over to the dark side! “[Eric’s] doing some evil stuff this year, some stuff that’s not so nice,” Alexander Skarsgard told HollywoodLife.com on May 20 at Piaget’s screening of Fox Searchlight’s The East in NYC.
