In the first episode of this season, you will be introduced to new character CAT INGERSLEV. The writer of the episode, Brian Buckner, took the name from some lovely ladies in HBO’s art department: Art Director Cat Smith and Production Designer Suzuki Ingerslev. [Gianna Sobol, 01.10.12]

Season Villain

“There will be a very significant, strong, mysterious woman at the center of one of our main stories next year. That will be a very familiar and compelling character. It may be someone you’ve heard of before.” [Raelle Tucker, 09.13.11 - EW]

“I know there is going to be an omnipresent power in season five.” [Stephen Moyer, 08.26.11 - MTV]

Fairies

Sookie Stackhouse

Her independent streak will continue next year. “While there will always be romance in Sookie’s life, Sookie at the moment is choosing herself over all of them. I think that will continue to play into season 5.“ [Raelle Tucker, 09.13.11 - EW]

Jason Stackhouse

 “We call it season of the bromance,” Alexander Skarsgård told us. “We just started [filming] and we’re on episode four of season five. I have a lot with Steve [Stephen Moyer] this year,” he said, quipping, “Eric is very intrigued by Bill now.” [EOnline, 02.14.12]

In episode four we’re finally going to learn what happened to Terry back in ’03 when he was serving in Iraq—and believe us when we say it’s going to be intense. [EOnline]

Luna

Janina Gavankar revealed that a major thing is going to happen to Luna early in the season, and it’s going to change her life forever.

  1. No mention of Alcide??? You totally underused Joe Manganiello in season four and now it sounds like you will repeat your error in judgement next season. I would have stopped watching after season two if it weren’t for Alcide. You’re in denial if you don’t fully appreciate how pivotal he has become in sustaining your viewership (both male and female). SMARTEN UP! Evolve his character and give him more screen time or you’ll lose Joe altogether.

    • Remi Belphegor says:

      If you haven’t noticed, he’s leading towards the books with the most spewful of events. and Well, I don’t know what YOU missed of Alicide, but they’re was quite a few fanactions. Alicide sniffing out Eric, Alicide saving sookie, Sookie and Alicide moment. If that doesn’t HINT at something, You’re as dumb as they come. Not to mention, She’ll probably hook up with Alicide at some point in time, because thats how the books went, and now with his psycho girlfriend out of the way, it should be fine.

      Not even going to get into capslock lover down there. So I’ll just state this better. If YOU can take this multimilliondollar industry and create her books with such peer complexion and be able to hire these actors, I’d like to see you try to do better.

      I’m certainly not defending Alan ball: I’m a avid book lover and he screwed that over for me, but his choice of actors was awesome and horrendous. Not to mention when each and every character make about 100,000$ an episode.. Yeah.

      Sure, some of the concepts / creations he made were absolutely shit, but all you can do is sit on your hands and watch. He’s not going to change his gameplan because of a bunch of whiny complaining fans. If he chooses to off Alicide / Eric, he knows the consequences.

      • Ceanag says:

        I think Alcide’s character should get more exposure (no pun intended).According to the books,he eventually overcomes his self-loathing and becomes a powerfull alpha-leader.I was disappointed with Season 4′s lack of a stronger role.

        • monica says:

          Yeah I love Alcide. I think he should get more of the light in this season. I also want to see more of a relationship with Luna and Sam.

    • Rina says:

      Joe M said he will have a large role in S5 and that he is excited that TB is casting so many new werewolves, so don’t stress. We will get plenty of Alcide in S5.

    • Emma says:

      There’s an entire paragraph on Alcide…?

  2. INTE SVENSK FLICKA says:

    LOVE RUSSELL EDGINGTON. HE IS CREEPY WEIRD. THOUGHT THE FACT THAT HE CARRIED HIS SLIMY LOVER AROUND IN A FLASK TOTALLY HILARIOUS. HOPE YOU BRING HIM BACK BIG TIME. HE ALSO OUT ACTS EVERYONE.

    LOVED ERIC, HATED THE WHIMPY BABY THING. THAT WAS SO LAME. SO WERE THE TOTALLY STUPID FAIRIES. AND PAMS FACE FALLING OFF….UGH….LAME WRITING. THE LAST SEASON WALKED A THIN LINE OF TOTAL DISASTER. FROM THE “MOD SQUAD” SHOWING UP TO DUKE IT OUT WITH MARNIE, TO GOOFY ERIC, AND TIRESOME SOOKIE WHO’S CONSTANT COMPLAINING IS GETTING OLD. THE LAFAYETTE STEALING THE BABY THING WAS JUST GOD AWFUL AND SO HOKEY (EVEN WHEN HOKEY IS WHAT THE SHOW HAS THAT MAKES IT SO QUIRKY) IT SEEMS THE WHOLE THING WASN’T WORKING. WHAT WORKED? JASON AND JESSICA SIZZLED. THAT IS JUST SO FUN TO WATCH. SAM’S BROTHER GETTING KILLED, GREAT ACTING BY THAT KID ALL THE WAY AROUND. SAM SHOWED HOW WELL HE CAN ACT WHEN HE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE HIS BROTHER WHO WAS SAM…(CONFUSING BUT WE ALL KNOW WHAT I MEAN.) THE LEADER OF ALCIDES PACK WAS REALLY GREAT AND WELL CHOSEN, CAME ACROSS AS REALLY BIKER SOUTHERN. ALCIDES GRILFRIEND DID A GREAT JOB AS A STRUNG OUT GIRLFRIEND. HPE YOU KEEP THOSE KIND OF THREADS GOING AND MIX IN RUSSELL, AND GIVE BILL MORE COOL STUFF. I WANT TO SEE A SHOWDOWN WITH THE “AUTHORITY” AND RUSSELL AND BILL! LOVE THE FACT THAT BILL IS KING, HATE THE FACT THAT NOW IT IS TURNING THE SHOW INTO SOME STUPID NANCY DREW LIKE THING WITH A MYSTERY TO SOLVE. THAT IS SO NOT BILL. AND ERIC REALLY NEEDS TO RAMP IT UP IN THE COMPETETION DEPT WITH BILL, THAT IS FUNNY STUFF.

    MY FAVORITE LINE OF THE SEASON? “WE ARE NOT PUPPY DOGS.” THAT IS THE PERFECT EXAMPLE OF KITSCH, AND HOKEY COOL ALL ROLLED INTO ONE FUNNY MOMENT. PUT MORE OF THE ‘COOL’ BACK INTO THE SHOW.

    • sammy mae says:

      mmm well i sort of agreed with the point u said about the squad against marnie, i thought that was a bit of a cheap shot by ball, but i didnt mind the eric being goofy thing, i thought it gives us as an audience an opportunity to see a different side of the viking. the face thing with pam.. it was alright i thought it was strain out a bit too much.
      i am glad they killed of sam’s bro (tommy) i found him really annoying, and i didnt really like sam in this season, i thought it was a bit strange him going out with a girl who has a child, it doesnt seem like sam.
      omg i loved jess and jason!! about time they got together and thank god he didnt turn into a werepanther!! that would be too much!!
      and i liked the werwolf pack alcide decided to join it was interesting and i am glad alan didnt concentrate on that too much!!
      it should be interesting of bill and eric working together, see how that goes since they both love sookie (i am team bill all the way!!)
      but overall i thought it was a really good season. but season 1 and 2 were absolutely amazing!

      • Vaughn says:

        Have To Agree and disagree with a few ppl posts i think it kinda wouldve been kool to have jason as a werepanther & jason and jessica definitely hot wouldnt even mind seeing hoyt going off the deep end next season . love russell edgington and def agree he out acts everyone on the show, didnt mind eric being the way he was this past season although i was glad that he made it back to the old eric was pissed off tara and jesus were killed off but i guess its good we will still see tara on the show as for lafayette and the baby situation i think they could have given us somethign totally different with that i didnt hate it but didnt love it , also thgt the whole tara lesbian thing was kool are we done with godrick ppl? and steve newlan as a vamp def adds for a good story next season.

  3. Luise says:

    I REALLY want Eric back to normal. And the relationship Eric-Pam.
    It was cute, but now he should get over Sookie already. She’s special, but not that extrodinary. I don’t get why EVERY guy in the series wants to get it on with her.

    • Cloes says:

      Fairies have that effect on men

      • Clumsatron says:

        Not to mention the fact that he’s supposed to be with Sookie. I love the series, they’re a great adaptation of the books. (I’m one of those fans who read the books well before True Blood) Eric is meant to be with Sookie.

  4. ashley says:

    I hope this season is way better than season 3 and 4. the 1 season of trueblood was the best one they need to bring jason back to horning old jason he rocked the 1 season they need to show more of jessica and jason in this season and make the show better than the last seasons:)

    • sammy mae says:

      i agree with all of ur comment! season one and two were the best!! and yes more jason and jessica, i think there will be more sex between them two!

  5. sammy mae says:

    OMG I WANT BILL AND SOOKIE TOGETHER!! I LOVE BILL SO MUCH.

    Okay i have a feeling about tara. either that bill or eric will feed tara their blood, and whosever blood she drinks she will fall in love with them (either eric or bill). OR that pam gives tara her blood and tara falls in love iwth pam as she has had a experienc being a lesbian. or tara becomes a vampire and that the vampire that will possibly turn her would be pam because she isnt a maker yet.
    for steven, i feel he will bother jason, and wrecks the relationship between jessica and jason (hopefully not because they are my favourite couple atm!) hopefully sarah newlin comes into the story
    this season, sookie seemed really skinny, like in that dream she has with eric and bill she seemed sooo skinny. i didnt like it that much
    i feel that at the end of the season, sookie will end up with someone either alcide, bill or eric.
    I am actually glad alan ball didnt follow the book, because bill in the book sounds like a douche who only wants sookie for her blood (i only started to read the books).
    i hope i see more of jason and jessica together and hopefully more of sookie and bill together, and i am excited to see what happens with arlene and terry and this new character. and what happens with lafayette.

    I AM SOOO EXCITED I WANT IT TO COME SOONER!!!!
    from aussie!!! oi! oi! oi!

    • monica says:

      Yeah, I think that Bill and Sookie were sooo cute together and there should be more of them… And Eric was a big baby but it was also cute. But Bill was there first! :D

  6. Jean Ann says:

    I have enjoyed all 4 seasons of the show! Its great seeing them be someone other than themselves at times . BILL NEEDS more and i really think i should be the new 40ish women to get him in season 5 lol

  7. Geun Wu Park says:

    I like the spoilers for season 5. Coming the spoilers means that True Blood season 5 is coming soon!! I know!!! I like it. I am very excited about it. I want to watch it in a hurry.

  8. helen says:

    I liked season 4 and 3 more than 1, specially cause there was more of Eric and I hope season 5 will be better, I enjoyed season 4 Eric/Sookie’s, there were very funny scenes and the love scenes were memorable too but out of it the witches plot and the acting was great. I’d like Eric in love with Sookie but being himself now I like his real personality with a few strokes of his softer side too

  9. monica says:

    Okay,
    I love the spoilers for Season 5. Can not wait for June to come. I don’t really know what to expect with the show… I think that Alan Ball is doing a fantastic job. I think that even though not everything is the same as the book… but it works the way he is going, and I think Charlane thinks he is doing a great job as well.

  10. Shunda says:

    I”m all for Team “ALCIDE”, he is so FINE!!! Sure i like Bill and Eric too and the other characters but I loved It when Alcide came into the picture, and Lafayette has me rolling with his snappy comebacks, he one of my favorites as well. can’t wait to see season 5

  11. tricia says:

    Okay,Okay… I am so sick of the Bill and Sookie Show that I could barf! It was so refreshing to see her with Eric for a change. And I think it would be very exciting to see how they would relate romantically with Eric’s memory back. I hated that final scene when Anna did the most illogical thing imaginable. And that was rejecting Eric Northman after having F’ked him all over the place! Stupid bitch…. Sorry… I can’t help it! She is stupid and whining!

    I’ve about resigned myself that Alan, Stephen, and Anna want the Bill/Sookie show whether or not the fans do. And I believe anyone who was at or watched the videos from the ComicCon or Palefest panels saw loud and clear that the fans want Eric and Sookie… they even booed Bill/Sookie! Let Bill remain the king… which I think is a bit of a stretch! I cannot imagine Eric bowing and scraping to him as king, but I guess they had to do something to make him as powerful as Eric. It just does not work for me and everyone I talk to… we all say that Bill is just about the most annoying character on TV. He’s the character you would like to kill off yourself given the chance! LOL

    I’m just hopeful that they will give Eric enough face time… well, and nude time as well! I could look at that man’s body all day long! LOL Give us back the old Eric so that stupid Sookie cannot insult him any more than she already has! Just me sayin…

    • Lividity says:

      Watch the fake vomit please, it’s against the Rules

    • Rina says:

      Ya, seriously. Nobody wants to read your psychotic rants. Bill, Sookie, and Eric are just fictional characters. There is no need to insult the actors playing them. If you don’t like how AB is portraying the relationships, don’t watch the show.

    • caffeine says:

      I totally agree about Sookie’s whining! Especially in the books, most notably book 4. The endless internal monologue about “morality” or some other hang-upey whinging. I have to put my bookmark in and say just shut the f#@* up and F$#% HIM! It’s Eric for god’s sake!!!!

  12. Emily says:

    I know Tara didn’t die some vamp will save her or shell take some v

  13. caffeine says:

    Why does everyone seem to think the mysterious woman ‘you’ve seen before’ is Salome? I think it’s more likely to be Queen Mab. As we have seen her in the show previously, her storyline has been left open wide and there are lots of hints about the fairies this season.
    Also, I think that whole speech from Eric about him being the only one who knew Sookie wasn’t dead was a hint that maybe a little fairy told him… maybe Prince Niall?

  14. illuminata says:

    spoiler alert !

    eric and sookie get married in the books so i dont think she will be alone for a long time.

  15. Schmauseline says:

    Oh my god guys,

    Bill and Sookie? I gotta admit that it also gets on my nervs that everybody falls for her. But guys: TEAM ERIC? Where are you? I’ll never get why she even hesitates in her decision. Who is Bill compared to Eric, but I also gotta say that in my opinion the last season was very weak. If Eric wouldn’t have been there I don’t know if I’d even watched it. I liked the goofy thing about him, showed his hurtful side – just cute. But I also like that he’s back now but still kinda cute with Sookie.
    The Lafayette-thing was boring, but was a bit sad they killed jesus. Marnie was a bit over-the-limit-character and Sam just got on my nervs. Alcide is nice but I don’t know, still missing the depth of the character. Taras lesbian thing it’s a bit kinda cliché just to make the male audience get hot or whatever.

    So whatever happens I hope She’ll see that she can’t chose anyone else but eric :P.

  16. I’ve read all of the sookie stack house books and seen all episodes of true blood. they follow the books more closly than any other series i’ve seen bt they do take some licence to do their own thing. somethime i like it some times i get annoyed with it.

    i love eric in the books and most people i talk to who have read all of the books like eric better than bill. most people who have only seen the series love bill more
    i love how thoughtful eric is in the books and part of season four and i loved how he just poped in to be sexy which they totally missed in the series they made him a creeper with a torture chamber in his basement. though it was implied that eric was ruthless when he wasnt with sookie, sookie never saw that side of eric. when eric was with sookie he was tauntingly sexy and kind to her and though was not overly caring about the people close to her, he did his best not to offend her by hurting them.
    in book 4 when eric lost his memories he went out of his way not to cause trouble for sookie in trueblood he was portraied as a child who only caused her trouble.. this is not the fault of mr skarsgard but of the writers. i was really looking forward to season 4 and though it was great there were allot of things that i had issue with.

    in the books (spoiler) sookie dates quin she seees him breefly in book 5 then dates him in books 6 and 7 i believe but they used an adaptation of his back story for tomy so idk. im wondering if we are going to see him at all im looking forward to seeing him as well as in the later books where sookie get back with eric.. i guess they will figure it out but there was a huge amout of tention where eric didnt know what happed when he was with sookie but remembered everhing else and this was really played up

    as for sookie and pam i hope that they will become friends in trueblood like they did in the books i really loved her relationship with sookie and eric her ebing a proper victorian woman i’m a clasical victorian myself and out of all oft he vampire charecters i’ve ever known i’m the most like pam (in the books) i’m alos looking forward to any flashbacks where they go in to eric’s relationship with pam and how they love eachother because they are so alike and have a deep bond but also have a casual realtionship sokie pam and eric have a zeal for life and a bravery that wist-stands anything. eric is always telling sookie and pam how proud he is of them espically sooie how she kicks butt more any anyone else in the series even when sookie and eric we not dating he always praised her for her courage and resistance.

    as for sam and alcide i asked ms harris at dragon con this year what the most impotrant message she is trying to send to us is and she replied with one word “tollarance” this was to my pleasure published in the newsletter in any case i am a hard care vampire fan but i cant help but love alcide and sam they are adorable and yet rugged strong powerful loving loyal men.

    i like bill at first but season 3 made me hate him he still makes me laugh though i’m wating for bill to see porche in walmart late at night “oh hi” and she screams and runs away in the books he’s just a dumb guy who doesnt know any better he’s not thoughtful of sookie at all. on many occation she complains to herself that she needs money to fix up her house ie the roof or the driveway while she is dating bill and insted of helping her while she is rehingiling her own roof he is standing in her yard drinking trueblood ad insted gives a ton of money to the bellfores . in anoth instance sookie is at her whits end and is whining to eric that she needs to repave her driveway, he asked her what happened to the money she got form working a job with him she she tells him this story she spent the money on the roof and that she never got the money from the queen because she died . eric gets furious gets the money from the queens estate gives it to sookie and the next day she waked up to her driveway being regravled with the expensive interllocking stuff.. now i’ve with paved driveways i’ve lived with gravel driveways and they are a pain there is nothing sexier than a guy who will give you a load a gravel on a driveway that long lol

    i was really bothered by the last few scenes of season 4 .. in the books eric was there when debbie pelt goit shot in fact he took a bullet for sookie then sookie shot debbie eric burried the body adn dumped the car that was a huge issue in the books we though he was dead for about 2 min cause he got shot in the chest this was all mind you before he got his memories back and later in the boks when he did get his memorys of his time with sookie back thats how he won her over by explaining to her that he loved her then and now and that he truly ment all of his dreams of running away with her leving vamp politics and such

    i don’t know what they are going to do with season 5 since in the book it was all about alcieds dad competing to be pack leader failing and then alcide trying to get up in ranks though they already estabvlised that alcied is pack leader now

    also the vamp expo is bill going to be the la king for much longer cause thats kind of half of erics thing being higher than bill and i guess it wouldnt warp the vamp expo too much if bill were the king but i think that they are backing themseves in to a corner with this there was allot of sophie ann stuff and after her there was the king of navada causing ruckus with eric and his teratory so idk..

    hopefully i will get to work on set this season i’m really looking forward it

    • Clumsatron says:

      Exactly!

    • Onelove847 says:

      I have to agree the series has taken made huge changes compared to the book. I just finished the most recent and honestly I cried more than I laughed- most involving Eric and Sookie- I will say no more if you have not read the book yet. I would love to see Quinn introduced and I miss that there is no Bubba. I don’t understand why certain people who are in the books are changed namly Eric’s maker, but I love True Blood, but believe the books are far better. I don’t understand the need for a “villian” each season the books provide enough excitment without turning True Blood into a sexy Scooby Doo. One thing I would like to say is I totally agree in keeping La La alive- he is wonderful

  17. wildkat54 says:

    I agree that Sookie is much hotter with Eric than with Bill. Tara will probably become a zombie, since True Blood hasn’t explored the zombie-genre in detail, and it is exploding on most media nowadays. It might be interesting to continue exploring Lafayette’s abilities, and, with Jesus’ assistance, perhaps they could resurrect Tara in human form later in the season.

    Jessica and Jason are the best combination ever!! The scene during the final season episode with Jessica and the cape and the bustier – whew!!

    Potential baby boom is possible with the half-faeries and half-werepanthers created in season 4! Could be interesting if Alcides had to track down the 2 daddies for child support respectively!

    • They better not turn Tara into a zombie! Leave it to some people to turn Tara into something so unattractive. I think she will be something much more significant and will be just as kick ass as eva’.

  18. jamiexbaby says:

    No quinn? He would be a major character to leave out. I don’t think I will watch it if he isn’t in it.

  19. Ann o says:

    Love true blood but books much better. Bill sexy enough but can’t compete with Eric. Werewolfs no competition either against the beautiful vampires so who cares if we ever see Quinn just want sookie to fall headover heels with Eric but great casting

  20. Jessica says:

    I am so pumped for the season. Though I am still livid that they killed Claudine for no reason!! Book fans will know what I am talking about. I am a bit annoyed at how many liberties they are taking in the show. How far from the books they stray??? Pls just do this season a little more like the books cause they are amazing! I wish all trueblood fans read the Sookie Stackhouse series they are like crack

    • krystalxvictoria says:

      I’d like to know about the Claudine issues too. And what they’ll do with book 9 with Eric’s maker, since they totally screwdriver that up. And what they’ll do for the vampire summit since they’ve already killed off Sophie Anne.

  21. Carl says:

    What about Jessica ?

  22. nikki says:

    I have to say its sookie and Eric all the way for me but its down to the books and how she manages to change him from a vamp who despises and uses humans to a vamp who would do anything for her.The tv version has let the books down a few times but is still very good.They should have done a better job with sookie and erics sex scenes,they were rubbish compared to bills with sookie.;)

  23. CASSIE says:

    REAL SPOILERS:

    Tara is turned into a vamp first episode. Pam is her maker.

    Sookie is out of control spiraling out of control, drinking heavily and crashes her car.

    Chistopher Maloni is the Authority.

    • Kissley says:

      what? for real? Tara gets turned…that doesnt suprise me since they havent been following the books that well, but it doesnt really matter if they do follow the book or not its still a damn good show! The whole Sookie thing def shocks the hell out of me, she doesnt even drink!! I hope this season will be EPIC! LOL

    • From where did you get this information from??

  24. WHAT ABOUT QUIN???????????????????????????? He is the only one I am looking forward to.

  25. CASSIE says:

    season 5 will be bringing a lot of aspects of the books. and maloni wont be alive for very long…

  26. CASSIE says:

    get ready ppl were finishing up episode 7 and the premiere will be sometime late may early june. promos on hbo and hbogo.com coming in the next week

  27. It’s driving me crazy that Alan Ball is being so tight lipped about his ‘big plans’ for Tara!!!! I hope they make her a bada__ to be reckoned with and I hope they bring back those funny lines between her and her cousin.

  28. amc says:

    Being a book reader, I have to admit that after season 3 I was ready to stop watching the series. Too many times Eric stuff from the books was given to Bill but I gave 4 a shot in hoping that Alan Ball would pull the main aspects of the book out and he did without following it word for word. The witch characters, with the exception of Jesus, to me were weak but the vamps and humans really brought thier A game. With Eric getting Sookie, I think what they did with Bill by making him “king” was brillient and balanced out our two main boys. One of my favorite things that “came back” so to speak in 4 was the humor True Blood had in the first two seasons but was missing in 3. The characters they seem to be creating for 5 seem very interesting, Eric’s “sister” (sorry I’ve forgot her name), Chris Meloni I am very exicited about, Russell was the the best thing that came out of 3 (other than bondage Eric scene) looking forward to him, the “bromance” with Eric and Bill is a great next step after last season and we finally will see Eric turn Pam. Waiting Sucks

  29. sapphiremoon says:

    I’ve watched from the beginning, and will continue to watch…..as long as they stop playing it safe and really let the characters blossom….explode… with what can be!!!! Don’t be afraid to take a chance with romances, friendships, and even rivalries possible, if they don’t work out you can always adjust the script accordingly.

    • sapphiremoon says:

      Besides if they follow step by step in the books….then there is no element of surprise, and lets face it…that is what we are really looking for!!!

    I would love to see Sookie and Alcide together, but that doesn’t happen in the books. Jason does become a werepanther in the books. And what kind of person would that make Sam, if he refused to see a woman he was interested in just because she had a child.? And Eric was supposed to lose his memory, that’s the whole plot of book 4. It gives you incite to good person that Eric is capable of being. Bill’s whole storyline is messed up. I’m a huge lover of the Sookie Stackhouse series. And while Alan Ball has twisted the stories all around, I, for the most part, like what he’s done with it. Ive read all 11 books plus the Sookie Stackhouse compainion several times over. And I like that hes changed it up so much because otherwise, those of us that have read all the books, would’ve lost interest a while back. He keeps even the avid readers on the edge of their seats.

    Great job, Alan Ball!

    Oh and it seems they’ve cut the Quinn character completely. Which I am totally cool with. He was my least favorite relationship for Sookie. They could stick Alcide in his place. ;D

    I am counting the days, minutes, hours and seconds until the premiere of season 5…It has been one long ass wait but it is now only a month and change. I am such a fan of the Fae…it will be so cool to learn more aobut how Sookie became what she is, why Terry is so messed up from Nam…how Jason will handle becoming a Were….he does become a wolf…if you dont read the books, you would never know that but I read all the books…Jason is one kick ass werewolf. I just cannot wait.

    I don’t understand the dislike of the other Eric in season 4. I think AB kept the spirit of the Eric transformation by making him child like which is indicated in BooK 4 when Sookie mentions that talking to Eric was like talking to an annoying two year old. As a fan of the books I sometimes wish that Ball would not play so fast and loose with the story line but I have to admit I do enjoy the surprises. However I do not want Ball to change the love and connection between Eric and Sookie. Sure he treats other humans as “white noise” but he truly loves Sookie and deserves to be happy.S5 will be awesome. I can’t wait. Tara as a vampire could be the best friend replacement for Pam in the books only after she is subdued as Jake the werewolf turned vampire by Sookie’s cousin is in the Harris series. Tara could be the renegade vamp that is being tracked in S5. Ball has to do something to keep Bill in a competitive position in TB because he has a subordinate role in much of the Harris books. BTW, Don’t be so screamish with sex among “relatives” with vampires or even fairies. They are not human and certainly do not play by human rules. You hang around for a few hundred years and see how you view sex. I also want to see what Ball does with the ‘We will be one’ bond between Eric and Sookie. Eric’s blood is stronger than Bill’s because he is older and the Bond should make Sookie more inclined to favor Eric but we will see I hope. On a different note, fans of Vampires, witches and daemons should try A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness It helped sate my thirst for TB until the new season but just barely. Waiting sucks.

    I soooo wish to see more of Bill and Sookie !!
    Their love was the main reason for me to actually watch the series !! I never liked eric much, he is tall and real sexy of course but their is something in him, that I can not approve of, well okay when he lost his memories he started to be some kind of cute, like a baby, yes, innocent and all, but for me he’ll always be that cruel Eric, interested only in the fact that Sookie isn’t HIS and that she is a magical creature, I think he is more attracted by her blood than her personality !!
    The only thing that makes me feel good is the fact that Bill (Stephen Moyer) is the one who got Sookie (Anna Paquin) in real life !! :DD And to me that’s one of the main proves that they’re destined to be together !!!

    And as for Alcide I hope he’ll stay away from Sookie !!! Come on guys, Bill is the only one for her !! Besides how could Sookie forget all the stuff they’ve been going through?? Means NOOO werewolves, I mean vampires are cool enough, kinda reminds me of Twilight this situation ^^
    Well, as for Jason, he has the cutest eyes ever !! But every relationship of his is a bit f*cked up ! Now he hooked up with Jessica if that won’t end badly then I don’t know, he must find some normal girl, although I think normal isn’t what you would call people living in Bon Temps hehe

    And I can’t understand the turmoil around Russell that guy freaks me out !! But I soo felt sorry for him when Sookie destroyed the leftovers of his lover !! That was kinda cruel !!

    Good to know that the director seems to have plans for Tara, means she’s gonna make it !! Whithout Tara the series would be a bit less loud and exciting to watch, when she is pissed of, man there is no hiding place, and I’m so happy for her, because she finally seemed to find her true love !!
    But poor Lafayette !! :(( aw, he is maybe the coolest character of True Blood I love him !!! Wished his lover could have survived the 4th season, but nope :S

    Maaaan, I’m soo on true blood O.O and there can barely exist a replacement for True Blood but I’ll check out this A Dicovery of Witches.. even though I’ve already atarted to watch TB over again, but nothing comes near to the experiencce of watching it for the first time !!
    waiting definitely SUCKS !!

    Hi all

    I just loved Sookie and Eric. Im not a big Bill fan. I think Eric is wonderful and it was great to his softer side. I re watched all the Sookie and Eric parts as it made me feel warm and happy.

    I dont understand what all the men see in Sookie, but give me more of Eric any day!

    Team Bill forever. Sookie and Bill will always do it for me.

    This show is the best. I look forward to this every summer. I thought there would be more Sookie/Alcide!! I know if you throw up on a guy but I figured they would hook up after. I guess it is a wait and see.
