Alan Ball, Anna Paquin, Alexander Skarsgard, and Stephen Moyer were on hand at the TCA (Television Critics Association) in Beverly Hills California on Thursday. While we got some great spoilers from last weekend’s comic con (check them out here) the showrunner and lead actors from HBO’s True Blood (channel 200 in Phoenix) had a little more details to share according to TVLine.com.
Biggest solid teaser we got was confirmation that there will be a season 5 and during that season we will learn how one vampire was made. At Comic Con last weekend the rumor was the vampire we are going to get personal with will be Pam (let’s hope her rotting flesh wound heals by that time… last Sunday’s episode gave Pam little hope on finding a cure).
Many people want to know how th creepy doll plays into the story, Ball reveal the creepy doll storyline is related to the creepy baby (last Sunday we were led to believe that the exorcism worked but nothing on True Blood is ever that easy really).
Anna Paquin made some suggestions (to Ball) regarding a scene in episode nine of season four. If there is a standout moment (between Sookie, Eric, and Bill) in that episode you have Paquin to thank for it. It’s starts with suggestions and moves into direction. (This is just speculation, but perhaps Paquin is getting bitten by the directing bug?)
Not much else to report, no updates on Jason (ghost daddy storyline), Alcide (pack leader request to join), or Sam (recent criminal cover up) and Tommy (recent murder storyline), Tara (who looks like she may leave town again), Lafayette (trip to Mexico), or the wiccan storyline. As the season unravels, I am sure we will start to fit the pieces together. What do you think is going to happen to your favorite characters? How will their stories unfold? Feel free to leave a comment below with your thoughts.
