True Blood Season 4 Spoilers!
Yup, that's right people, this is a spoiler zone, so you better stop scrolling if you want to stay surprised; tape your eyes shut, and nail your hands to the desk, but don't touch the mouse! ...I'm probably being a little overzealous here; there's a small scoop, hell, it's more like a melon-baller, about a new love interest, what Tara will be doing, --and who knows where she is, plus, what's going on with Jessica and Hoyt. But all this is very vague information, hardly even worth mentioning, really. Did that work? I knew you'd be unconvinced! That takes true dedication, I hear I can be pretty persuasive. Of course you want True Blood spoilers, you're still reading! Well, we have a hell of a lot of them, courtesy of the cast of True Blood, themselves, --I guess it's hard for them to hold their guts when they're cornered at conventions.
Well, we got the goods, courtesy of E!Online's spoiler Chat:
"@emilyanne18 (via Twitter): Do you know any new spoilers related to season four of True Blood?
We talked to Sam Trammell this weekend at an event for the True Blood: All Right Now graphic novel, and he told us about Sam's future, "What's great about this year is that we explore the shape-shifter community a little bit more, so there's going to be a lot of cool mythological stuff that we talk about, shape-shifter rules and what shape-shifters can do and who they are. Sam's [also] got a new love interest that's going to happen this year for him. I don't have really good luck with the ladies, they usually die—so hopefully she'll survive." Everybody wish Sam's new girlfriend luck on that whole "surviving Bon Temps" thing!
@nathalia004 (via Twitter): Do you have any True Blood scoop?
True Blood star Rutina Wesley shares, "You're going to find out where Tara goes, and there's going to be some happiness for her. It won't last for long, this is True Blood. It's a new Tara, and I think the fans are going to like it. She's not duct-taped, she's not tied up, she's got this personal strength and I think it's really awesome to see her. Sookie (Anna Paquin) and I will have some stuff this season—she's my best friend, so we're always going to have little moments. And we're going to get back to how I felt about Sam Merlotte, finding out that he was a shape shifter, so we are going to have a little moment about that. And I think Lafayette's (Nelsan Ellis) the only one that knows where I am, and he gives me some great advice." Hmm…
@JulischkaHH (via Twitter): True Blood!
How about some Jessica-Hoyt scoop? We chatted with Deborah Ann Woll this weekend, and she told us, "[Jessica and Hoyt] ended in a very positive place but obviously that won't last for long. We definitely pick up with a bit more trouble happening. Bon Temps is a scary place! The first two episodes are very interesting—Jim [Parrack] and I had some really fun stuff to play with like right off the bat. But maybe the first episode is my favorite as of now, just because it is the most varied." Deborah also told us that Jessica and Bill (Stephen Moyer) grow closer this season, saying, "I think we're definitely also in a healing stage where he's finally accepting that he has a progeny, that he has a daughter vampire, and he needs to give me tools to actually survive. So he's definitely more cooperative and participatory in my growing up.""
I'll be the first to admit I don't quite get how the Twitter thing integrates so neatly with just about everything, --but I'm damn happy it exists, whatever the semantics of operation. Seriously though, Tara is going to be back? Ugh. I am so -sick- of Tara taking up all the screen time. And there's a whole other subplot with Lafayette and his boyfriend. I don't mean to seem all "we need more white people action!" but, sorry, the story does kinda revolve around Sookie. The story is so far behind on Sookie, and all the major events in Sookie's life from the books is underplayed, --because Allen Ball is too busy making a big deal out of everyone else's bullshit. Can we please see more Sookie and Bill and Eric this season? It's not a white thing, it's an "Omg, I'm so tired of Tara, all she does is run around, acting like a total bitch, and whining because no one likes her, because she is such a bitch, --even though, everyone is actually falling all over themselves to kiss her ass" thing.
The whole Hoyt + Jessica having rough times ahead was pretty obvious, --Maxine Fortenberry was seen purchasing a sniper rifle at the end of the last season. But Jessica and Bill becoming closer is good news; hopefully it's not because Maxine Fortenberry plugs her own son in an attenpt to snuff Jessica. That would suck; Hoyt is the sweetest guy ever. Unrelated, it's good to see Sam gets a new girlfriend, and I have to agree, hopefully, this one survives... and doesn't turn out to be a total bitch who likes to turn into a pig who hangs out with psychotic mythical creatures.
