    TV Guide paper edition Sept 26 - Oct 2, pg.9

    Alan Ball and co-executive Raele Tucker promise more mayhem in Season 5... check out the article for full details but here's some highlights

    - can't say whether Tara will be back in her present form ... but we'll continue to tell Tara's story

    - Bill & Eric will have to fight the power elite (after killing Nan and her guards) - they'll need to rely on and trust each other

    - Russell Edgington is back with a new alliance

    - about Alcide ... Sookie will try to stand on her on two feet this season

    -Terry's ghosts will be back ... his PTSD comes from a particular incident that we'll learn more of ... Patrick Devins has a big part in it

    - vampire Steve Newlin will do what he believes is the righteous thing to do

    - couple new characters will be very sexy ... one mysterious female is at the center of one of the main stories ... one of the strongest women seen on the show

    "Bill & Eric will have to fight the power elite (after killing Nan and her guards) - they'll need to rely on and trust each other" That'll be awesome .


    "Russell Edgington is back with a new alliance" Some people think it might be Pam, but I don't think she'd risk Eric's life even if their relationship has taken a turn for the worse.


    "about Alcide ... Sookie will try to stand on her on two feet this season" Hopefully she stays on her own for a while this time. It would be nice to get some more Sookie character developement that doesn't revolve around her love life. I wonder how Alcide will react when he finds out she killed Debbie, or will she hide it from him. Do you think he'll even care?


    "Terry's ghosts will be back ... his PTSD comes from a particular incident that we'll learn more of ... Patrick Devins has a big part in it" That guy is a spirit of some sort then, it was a theory going around I think when the episode aired . A casualty that Terry didn't get to in time or somehow didn't save maybe.


    "vampire Steve Newlin will do what he believes is the righteous thing to do" That's a terrifying thought . I wonder if he will try and cause hell for vampires by killing people (and getting himself executed probably) or the opposite and trying to help with equal rights for vampires (can't really see that one happening). Do you think he might have gone to Jason's to recruit/turn him in possible revenge while further his cause (whichever cause he's on).


    Do you have a link to the article?

    I don't understand what "the elite" may be, unless the paper edition meant the Authority

    Eric Northman gets a sibling. Here's the link. Can somebody make this clickable? I can't seem to get that.

    I don't want Tara back in any form, even flashback, or just as an ancestor of hers played by the same actress ... a good Tara is a dead Tara

    It can't be done since they changed the site. Either way, I think this Nora fellow might be a good fit for Eric's family as Godric's progeny and Pam's "aunt". I can't wait to see the new and improved Northman siblings working together this season.

    Chris Meloni is officially joining True Blood as a series regular in Season 5 - an ancient, powerful vampire who holds the fate of Bill and Eric in his hands.

    Lucy Griffiths is joining True Blood's Season 5 cast as a series regular - will play Nora, Eric's centuries-old vampire "sister" (both progenies of Godric) who is working as a double agent within the Vampire Authority.

    I'm so excited to see Chris Meloni in this new part, I've only ever seen him on Law & Order:SVU, and playing something different than a detective will be very interesting!! Can't wait for the season to begin!

    Also, on the Tara front, I'm ok with her gone, she didn't have much of a storyline after she left Bon Temps, I don't know why she came back, she'll probably haunt Sookie, or some such, I'm hoping not though.

    1. a major thing happens to Luna early in the season

    2. Alcide's days of playing Mr. Nice Guy are over

    3. some really fun Alcide-Sookie stuff in the scripts - stuff that makes you really nervous

    4. Jason may have bitten off more than he could chew with regard to his romance with Jessica

    Brit Giles Matthey has booked a mysterious recurring role on the upcoming 5th season. He'lll portray Claude, a fairy who in the Sookie Stackhouse novels is a distant cousin of the leading lady's father. In the HBO adaptation, Claude will quickly set his sights on young vamp Jessica.

    The role of Claude was played last season, albeit briefly, by Lost's Neil Hopkins.

    I have a question...maybe someone can answer? lol


    Do they plan on writing in Anna Paquin's pregnancy for the show?




    I am so excited that they are adding in Claude but to be honest, when the first article came out that they were "introducing a new character from the book" I had sort of expected Quinn. I wonder if they will ever add him into the story.
