Season 4 of True Blood is quickly approaching, which means all sorts of spoilers and other goodies are slowly trickling in. If you’re a hardcore Trubie curious about the big bad drama that is going to take place then you’re in for a fiery treat.
It turns out that part of Eagle Rock properties, the section that is used as part of the set for True Blood, is slated to be burned for an episode in season four! That’s right, there will be lots of flames!
According to Eagle Rock Patch:
“…bungalows on the property are being equipped with gas canisters attached to their front windows—to give the appearance that an entire structure is being consumed in flames. In reality, only the front of each house will be ignited by the controlled burn, but it will result in the total obliteration of these structures.”
In the show, Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) serves as landlord for the buildings, which have been home to Arlene Fowler (Carrie Preston) and her children, the now-dead Dawn Green (Lynn Collins) and for a short time, Sam’s estranged family.
Not only will this fire add to the drama of the show, but Patch reports that the burning will also serve as an efficient way for the owner of the properties to clear the lot and still profit from the location, however, it’s unknown what will be built in its place.
I have never read the Charlaine Harris books that inspired True Blood, so I have no idea who or what starts the fire, or if it’s even in the books. But now I’m curious! There are quite a few questions buzzing around my head, like who starts the fire, what will Sam do about it and where will poor Arlene live now?
Have you read the books? Is the fire in there, if so, what’s the deal? Give me the spoilers!
