True Blood Season 5: Whatever I Am, You Made Me Promo VIDEO:
Extended Synopsis: TRUE BLOOD Episode #51: “Whatever I Am, You Made Me” Debut: SUNDAY, JUNE 24 (9:00-10:00 p.m.):
Bill and Eric barter for their lives with the Authority Chancellors and their leader, Roman (Christopher Meloni). Salome and Roman enlist a new ally in the face of Russell’s return. Sookie goes to Fangtasia to ask for help from Pam, who is still caught up in her memories of Eric and the strange murders at the Comstock Brothel. Andy’s dalliance with Holly (Lauren Bowles) comes back to bite him in the butt; later, Alcide (JOE MANGANIELLO) is visited by Gordon (Steve Rankin) and Barbara Pelt (Linda Purl), who are searching for Debbie. Jason bumps into an old high school teacher, but their reunion brings up conflicting feelings. Written byRaelle Tucker; directed by David Petrarca.
What I'm most intrigued by in the promo for TRUE BLOOD episode 5.03:
Pam's origin story = More Pam & Eric (and SPOILER!!! apparently Bill and Lorena!)
A new faery in town. It seems Sookie's faery godmother's twin has shown up in Bon Temps and Jessica is really happy to meet him and we are again treated to the line, previously used on Sookie, 'What are you?.' In episode 5.01, Jessica recycled Bill's line from season 1 --'She is mine!' when Sookie was about to be fanged (unwillingly); this time was when Steve Newlin was about to do the same to Sookie's bro, Jason. Recycle, reuse, I suppose.
Are Sam & Arlene reacting to vampire Tara in the brief shot we see of them in Sam's office? The look on Arlene's face says they are. How big of a body count is Tara going to wrack up before she can be subdued (again)?
Why is Pam being so super-extra bitchy at Sookie besides the fact that Sookie is whining about Tara again? (This is gonna get old fast--the Tara being like a wild animal phase of her new vampiric state. Even teenage Jessica didn't go off the deep end like this and her turning was pretty horrific.)
What I don't care about:
Alcide and his wolfie issues.
Anything Luna. She can leave. Now. Another chick not good enough for Sam.
Terry and Patrick and the origin of Terry's PTSD. Terry is a minor character. We have plenty of his story, we don't need to examine it closely. Enjoy the 'caps!
TRUE BLOOD CASTING NEWS (JUNE 15) TRUE BLOOD - ROBERT PATRICK TO GUEST ON TRUE BLOOD AS ALCIDE'S DAD:
True-Blood.net has confirmed with HBO that Robert Patrick will guest star on True Blood season 5 as Jackson Herveaux, Alcide’s father. We’ll meet him in episode 5.09, “Everybody Wants to Rule the World”, when we flashback to when Alcide and Debbie Pelt were teenagers in the 1980s. Back then, Jackson was “powerful, inspiring, and heroic”, but in present day he’s pretty much given up on life. He’ll be a recurring guest star.
