Heads Up!

HBO are airing a new True Blood promo during tonight’s Vampire Diaries finale on CW.

Eric Northman and Damon Salvatore in one hit?

I think I just died from the awesomeness.

I will update this post with the trailer as soon as it’s available.

VAMPIRE DIARIES FINALE DISCUSSION HERE. This post is for the True Blood Promo only.

UPDATE:

Someone please call me an ambulance because I’m about to have a fucking stroke!!!

    Oh dear god. I must repost this video. YUM!!!

      THIS one is my favourite. LOL.

        • May 14, 2010 at 12:03 am

          I would just like to say this for the record. There is something about Damon swaggering around, swigging hard liquor straight from the bottle with his shirt undone that just….makes me….DIE.

          Every time he does it I want to jump his bones.

          Sigh.

            Have to agree..know Stefan’s the “good” one, but Damon’s really grown on me. And i always thought he was hotter than Stefan.

            • May 14, 2010 at 1:17 am

              I never found Stefan hot at all. Not physically, let alone mentally. He’s a boring, stale crybaby who cannot control himself when accepting his true nature. He runs away from all his problems instead of facing them. He obviously doesn’t wish to grow.

                Yeah i dont find Stefan physically attractive at all. Damon blows him out of the water. The finale was such a fucking tease…

  12. May 14, 2010 at 12:48 am

    HA! When Stefan said the following to Damon in the last episode of TVD: “History is not going to repeat itself.” I was SO reminded of Bill.

    Dear Stefan, if Damon decides to approach Elena in a romantic way and she decides to favor him over you, it is her free choice and there is nothing illegal about it. Stop being controlling in a preschool kind of way. And stop whining – about… everything. Thank you.

    • May 14, 2010 at 12:55 am

      OH I KNOW.

      Stefan is a whiny bitch like Bill. People keep telling me they’re not the same but I have the same violent reaction to both of them. They both annoy me in ways I cannot even begin to explain. Stefan was tolerable in those couple of eps where he dropped the tortured vampire bullshit but now he’s back to be his irritating, “I want to smack him in that chiselled jaw” self.

      Damon is sex on legs. Seriously. Elena needs to get on that immediately.

      • May 14, 2010 at 1:11 am

        [Elena needs to get on that immediately.]

        Seconded, absolutely.

      • 24 VikingLover
        May 14, 2010 at 1:24 am

        I absolutely HATE Stefan and I absolutely HATE that they tricked me like that! I knew something was completely off with Elena before that kiss! Furthermore, I hate the “I love you Stefan” at the end. Why won’t Stefan DIE!!! Okay, rant over. 🙂

        May 14, 2010 at 8:28 am

        I know we’re not allowed to discuss VD in this post anymore but OMG Stefan and Bill are exactly the same. Tortured, self-righteous, skulking and not even attractive.

    • 26 Ashley
      May 14, 2010 at 1:52 am

      Yeah…***SPOILER FOR VAMPIRE DIARIES******

      the part that really pissed me off is when Damon went to Jeremy and tried to set him straight and Stefan told him to leave him alone because his motivations werent pure. Damon should have told him to go f*ck himself. Damon didnt tell Elena he was going after Jeremy, so his motives were pure. Elena didnt even know, so he wasnt trying to impress her.

      This is f*ing awesome!!! I am going to be extremely pissed if it is just a dream! I love that right after that clip they show Bill screaming like he’s in pain 😉 But oh my…Eric…mmmmm.

  20. 49 Patty
    May 14, 2010 at 1:03 am

    they should just make an Eric show. His facial expressions are priceless. How is he hot even when he’s like angry and yelling?

    May 14, 2010 at 1:07 am

    Very nice Vampire Diaries ending … when’s the new season?? LOL

    Oh yes, I’ve been Team Damon since the beginning. Ian (the actor) is just so damn SEXXXY!

    And the True Blood promo!!! I kind of hate when they flash through scenes so fast you can’t focus on anything and it gives you a headache … which only added to the headache I have. Ugh! Will have to watch it a few times to take it all in.

    Sookie and Eric kiss
    Franklin about to bite Tara
    Jason .. well, being Jason
    Jessica having a crisis
    Bill freakin’ out
    Cute wolfies
    Sookie crying on Alcide’s shoulder

    Hmmm, that’s all I can remember off-hand without watching again.

    • 52 Barbara E

      Yeah what do you guys think is up with the shot of Bill freaking out and screaming? It didnt look like he was hurt though…what do you guys think??

        • 56 Ashley
          May 14, 2010 at 1:46 am

          Thats actually the first thing that came to my mind, but wondered what you guys thought. I know this sounds bad, but i hope it is.

              May 14, 2010 at 2:20 am

              Its just a black collared shirt so its really hard to tell.

                    Yeah, I’m really not so sure about it being a flashback because of that. But whatever happened, dude’s pretty damn upset.

                    Then again, maybe this scene is him screaming AFTER a flashback. Bill loves having those melancholic telenovela moments after being momentarily gripped by nostalgia. LOL.

                      Although I can not deny that SM shows in this scene that he’s an excellent actor, is so ridiculous and pathetic to see Bill screaming like the poor and hopeless torment soul…

              yeah i saw it like 2 months ago and i think it was posted on here. They also said it will be a “GREAT SCENE” I am very curious to see this scene.

              This is gonna be a long wait

        • 68 PrettyVikingChains
          May 14, 2010 at 3:45 am

          Maybe still a little premature, but I feel safe saying it now: I so love AB. He is seriously redeeming himself. Everything that we’ve seen has either started with Eric (shooting clip, minisode), or heavily featured him (cast photo & all of the promos). Plus everything of Bill is looking BAD. Which of course is good! If we actually get to see him killing his wife…I will kiss AB’s feet, to say the least!

    • May 14, 2010 at 1:11 am

      It could be a dream sequence but FFS they’ve already done two of them.

        • May 14, 2010 at 1:21 am

          Why do think it’s a dream? I’m swinging. I mean, how many dream sequences can you really pull for something like this?

          • May 14, 2010 at 1:23 am

            Sookie’s dialogue does seem a bit OOC.

            An inch from the GP she may be, but TB Sookie doesn’t talk like a “slattern”. That was pretty raunchy for her.

            I’m still totally distracted by the look on his face. Have you ever seen anyone want someone SO BAD?

            Agh.

            • 85 Kathy
              May 14, 2010 at 1:27 am

              May 14, 2010 at 1:42 am

            • May 14, 2010 at 4:18 am

              It looks to me like maybe they are role playing. She’s trying to convince him that she can handle herself in Jacksonville.

              I don’t think it’s a dream. I think Sookie is playing Eric. She wants him to do something. He said no. Now she’s trying to convince him. Silly girl. She may have shocked him temporarily, but she has no idea who she is playing with.

        May 14, 2010 at 1:23 am

        I agree. I think Sookie is messing with Eric or responding to a challenge from him in some way. Perhaps Eric asked whether she was convincing enough to make the Jackson vamps trust her and that was her response.

        • 95 VikingLover
          May 14, 2010 at 1:27 am

          OH!! That would be freaking AWESOME Kayteadee!!! I think you might be right! Shit, I hope you’re right! I’d prefer that over an f***ing dream sequence.

          • May 14, 2010 at 1:37 am

            Yep I’m on board with this. Another dream will just piss everyone off. It’s too manipulative to do that again.

            This is for real, this is Sookie….FLIRTING. WITH ERIC.

Even if it is because of a challenge! I need to go back and watch again! Then I definitely need a cold, cold shower before I can drift off to sleep. Haha!

    WOW… Team Bill just took a MAJOR hit, and the season hasn’t even fucking STARTED.

    First there’s Sookie getting touchy-feely with Eric AND Alcide. Then you’ve got Jessica saying “I’m a vampire… it’s my NATURE” while lamenting her own murderous tendencies.

    There will be much wailing and gnashing of teeth in the fandom over the next 24 hours.

      HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! TOO FUNNY MAS! HAHAHAHA!

      Girls, unfortunately I think that E/S kiss is a dream sequence. The way Eric is looking at her reminds me of the 2nd dream she had after Godric was killed. I think it’s prob from early on in the Season.

        now that i’ve watched it, I wondered if Sookie would say that and now I worry it might only be a dream. I hope not, I’m tired of these dreams. See this is why Sookie and Bill have to break up, just from this trailer you can see a different Sookie, a stronger Sookie.

    Um um, Sookie is totally getting attacked at the club, there is a wolfie on a tv behind her, that’s when she is screaming, the guy looks like a were.. if they are sticking this close to the books… the staking should happen..

      And I quote: “Either Bill found out his true love is a whore or it’s a flashback with his wife and he killed her. I really hope this preview is deceiving or Sookie is a skank whore and I’ll have to ff through all her scenes.”

      That’s shameful. Seriously.

      • May 14, 2010 at 1:42 am

        What can I say… total and complete denial. That’s how they have been since Day one. I’m totally getting excited about Season 3 now. I think we are finally going to see some true side of Bill and all the BLs can just gauge their eyes out, because that is the only way they can avoid seeing it. Ahhh… right about now, I can just bow to the ground and kiss AB’s feet!!

        The minisode the other day caused enough havoc over there. I wouldn’t expect to see it any time soon.

        They also didn’t post a thing about the new book coming out, normally they would post big CH news like that but because it was such an Eric-centric book they elected to ignore it LOL.

          You know what’s really scarey though? The fact that they prefer that Bill killed his wife as opposed to Sookie “deceiving him and being a skank whore”. I just love the “I’ll have to ff through her scenes”. Oh, so it’s okay if Bill kills his wife then??? Seriously??

            YEP. That’s what I was talking about when I wondered how far down the moral abyss they would follow Bill.

            Now we know. They’ll follow his straight to hell.

            May 14, 2010 at 2:04 am

            I know exactly what they will say. “Bill was a young vampire. He couldnt help it. He cant control his urges.” Thats what they say about him now too. Hes not a young vampire anymore either FFS. Hes 150 years old. He should be able to contol himself by now.

              Hey Book Bill has gotten away with rape once and borderline rape, graveyard sex anyone? So I think they will go far down the abyss to excuse any behavior of Bill’s. It will always be someone elses fault or Sookie is a skank.

      May 14, 2010 at 1:59 am

      OMG….dont even get me started on them….i tried to reason with them and it just doesnt him. They think Bill can do no wrong. They condemn Eric for everything and Bill for nothing, even if the same exact motivations and reasons are behind it. They make no sense whatsoever. Their only defense of Bill is to bash Eric, and i mean EVERY SINGLE TIME.

      • 148 teamEric
        May 15, 2010 at 7:22 pm

        agreed Ashley… i got into an argument with one of them who tried to contend that TB and the books are all about Bill. I had to remind her that TB is based (even if at times loosely)on the CH books, which are from Sookie’s perspective, and that Sookie, not Bill is the main character in the show. She still didnt get it. Finally I realized that you cant use logic on someone who is doesnt understand what logic is.

        • 149 Ashley
          May 15, 2010 at 7:34 pm

          LOL…the books alll about Bill..thats laughable…Bill was only a large player in the books until book 3…after that hes just in the background, showing up once in a while to try and get Sookie back or repeat that he loves her, which he thinks is the magic fix. The books are clearly about Sookie, as is the show, and the people she interacts with. Bill and Eric are both secondary. But in the books, as far as Sookies love interests go, Eric has had a larger role than Bill for a long time. I dont get it.

    I’m wondering if the Are you going to invite me in/Who sent you/Sookie with a gun are all part of the same scene. I’m just speculating that they have combined the visit at Sookie’s house from Eric, Pam and Chow with the were-hitman scene at the bar from the books.

    After watching the vid just another time or two (that’s all I swear!) I have to say so far I’m actually not hating Sookie here. Even at the beginning when she’s talking about loving Bill, at least she’s showing some spunk. That’s the Sookie I love, the one that won’t take shit from anybody, not the S2 one that cried for Beehl every damn time she broke a nail.

    May 14, 2010 at 1:57 am

    Right now, I think it’s anyone’s guess. Correct me if I’m wrong, but doesn’t Claudine show up in Book 4? Casting her for season 3, if I’m right about where Claudine shows up, seems like they are rushing to get to an Eric/Sookie moment. If Claudine doesn’t show up until Book 4, she doesn’t start looking out for Sookie until she is with Eric.

    • 162 teamEric
      May 15, 2010 at 7:26 pm

      i dont think that the show is going book by book specifically, but focuses on one book for a season, but throws in stuff from other books if it fits the story that AB is trying to tell (like Tara being in season 1, and Claudine being in season 3, and Alcide’s dad dying before he meets Sookie). since there prob wont be 13 seasons, i think he is trying to fit in what he feels is important so when he does wrap it up he can do so while having developed the characters he thinks are the main ones.

          I love her as well. She’s completely cray cray, as illustrated by the endless, torturous Yahtzee game.

          She’s like Bill too, in that she tells you one thing about herself–she wants people to think she’s ‘egalitarian’–while a bunch of naked sex/blood slaves run about the place.

        • 187 Ashley

            May 15, 2010 at 3:21 pm

            I’m warming to her. My initial aversion had more to do with the way ERW delivered her lines. She’s a good actress, but this portrayal just wasn’t working for me. It felt hollow and overacted.

            I do like the direction they seem to be taking with the character, though. On the one hand, it’s hard to imagine that someone so capricious would reach such a powerful position. On the other hand, her criminal craziness is pretty awesome.

            I said before SA was even introduced– when Alan Ball suggested that she would be totally insane– that I hoped she turned out to be like that crazy, coked up drug dealer from ‘Boogie Nights’. You know, the one who made everyone sit around and listen to ‘Sister Christian’ while some random Asian boy lit fireworks in the background? LOL. That dude was hilarious… and scary as shit.

            Anyway, the neverending Yahtzee game definitely fell in line with that. So I think I see where there going with it… and I LIKE. It’s a departure from the books– but they seem to be depicting the vampire heirarchy in True Blood as slightly more criminal and less “civilized”… which, when you think about it, makes sense since they’ve been operating under the radar for so long.

            • 189 Dee
              May 15, 2010 at 4:30 pm

              I agree with you completely, I also don’t blame ERW for her performance. I think it’s the direction they gave her on how to play the actress. AB said she would be sort of like Paris Hilton Or Lindsay Lohan, and I have no clue why he would want the queen to be like this but when first meeting her thats the impression we’re supposed to get.

              LOL that is one of the best scenes in Boogie nights.

              I think this season we’ll get to see what she is all about and see just how crazy and ruthless she is.

                May 15, 2010 at 5:17 pm

                We are of the same mind about ERW’s portrayal of QSA. To be honest, the Queen of the books is regal and commanding of respect but fairly boring. It would probably not translate well to television, so I can see why AB would have wanted to spice her up, put her in a mask, and later reveal how deeply deranged and twisted a ruler she can actually be.

                I’m hoping we see a SA/Sookie meeting this season.

      May 14, 2010 at 3:34 am

      That is the way I am thinking it too. She is proving a point to Eric. Sookie and Eric won’t actually “hook” up anytime soon. The show would be over at that point unless they took it to a new direction, but I don’t think that is going to happen. I think it is going to be a great season however, and naturally leave us wanting season 4 hehe,

It is the same color wall as the scene where Alcide is comforting her. I think she is teasing him like you guys said – trying to show him that she can take care of herself in CD. This must be the part of the books when he comes to visit her at Alcide’s! I’M DYING!!!

        There is a point in Club Dead, think the 2nd night he visited her at Alcide’s apt, he said “You can’t make eyes at Edgington, Sookie. He’s not interested in women.” Maybe he said something like that in TB which brought about this kiss. 🙂

    i think i might be the only one NOT hot around the collar at the sookie/eric “i’ve got skills” scene. perhaps because i’m rereading the books and it just doesn’t ring right to me. a couple of weeks with bill and now she’s acting like she can teach eric some tricks… NOPE.. NOT BUYING IT.

    i’m willing to bet this is a sessytime dream she’s having because of having some of his blood. I sure as hell hope so.

      It doesn’t ring true because the Viking is dreaming. Yvetta is actually saying the line and Eric is thinking about Sookie. Sookie at this point would not say “she has skills”. Cause let’s face it no matter how special the farmer thinks she is, she is still a virgin in the love making department until she has some gplenty.

    My sister and I think The scene at 028 into the clip might be Sookie getting staked at Club Dead.

    • 211 pbt
      May 14, 2010 at 3:37 am

      I think that is the scene were the “were” approaches Sookie and she is sort of “were” handled. Not the staking at all. She is wearing the same white dress we saw in spoiler pics earlier this pre-season. I believe this is the first night they go to Club Dead. My opinion only.

    • May 14, 2010 at 3:45 am

      Could well be right on that. It’s so quick, but she looks like she’s in a club and she’s definitely being attacked.

      • 216 Ashley
        May 14, 2010 at 3:51 am

        I hope its the staking because of what it leads to. Thats the only reason i care.

        • May 14, 2010 at 3:53 am

          Sorry I meant I don’t think they’ll include the first were attack at CD.

            Yeah i knew what you meant. I hope the first were attack isnt what the promo is showing. I hope its the staking. But i wasnt sure it theyd include a juicy detail like that in the promo.

        I don’t know if she will be staked, but I don’t think they will go to nights to Josephine, one is more than enough. I lekid the stake thing, but it could take too much time, so maybe she gets bad injured by the were instead.

          May 14, 2010 at 10:46 am

          Have to agree, since I don’t think Tara will be there to do the “dance,” so it would be easy to combine the nights. (unfortunate because we lose Eric’s reaction!)

  52. May 14, 2010 at 3:55 am

    Love the clip but im gonna have to agree with u SVB about the hair….its driving me insane! I know im bring up old shit but really AB, y fuck that up too??? I think it has alot to do with the post you put up about his hair and the fact that CH mentioned it again in this lasted book. I just dont get y we cant have Eric with long hair or at least blond hair? So upset about this now:(

    • 224 Ashley
      May 14, 2010 at 3:57 am

      I think he should have blond hair, but he looks go no matter what so i dont care as long as they dont leave it like that. I didnt like the wig so i dont care that the cut the hair. I actually think the short hair makes him look less intimidating, and really brings out his facial features. I think its sexier shorter, but blonde not brown. I hope its a disguise or something.

    • 226 LydiaB
      May 14, 2010 at 4:24 am

      Because the long hair is disgusting. he’s not Fabio.

      • May 14, 2010 at 5:08 am

        I know he’s not Fabio but he’s not Eric from the books either bc he is a “LONG HAIRED BLONDE”!!! If AS wasnt attractive i dont think i would care for TB Eric at all but bc he is i can deal! I adore book Eric bc he’s so many things that TB Eric is not and i feel AB is taking away from that!

      • 228 Kathy
        May 14, 2010 at 4:06 pm

        Have to disagree. If they had given him a good wig he would have been beautiful and it wouldn’t be Fabio-like. I’m partial to long hair on a man though. Makes them seem more confident and down right sexy, if you ask me. The guy has to be able to carry it off of course and Alex can. Come on, he looked great as the transvestite in that movie. Actually that wig was better than the one they put him in in S1. He should have a Legolas wig with a few inches cut off. THAT’s my yummy yummy long braid down the back, when he feels like it, Eric.

          May 14, 2010 at 4:15 pm

          See, I just find that cheesy to the max, and edit Eric’s hair accordingly in my mind when I read the books. I think the show’s choice to depict him with short hair was a decided improvement, and endowed the character with a more universal sex appeal. Different strokes, I guess!

          However, I do wish they had kept him blonde. He looked more ethereal and angelic that way– which offered a really cool juxtaposition to his fierceness on-screen.

          Whatever, though. He’s still hot, and I’ll get over it. My only REAL gripe at this point is the continuity issue. The hair was obviously changed on purpose (as SVB so diligently established), so if they don’t offer a reason for it on the show, it will vex me deeply. LOL.

            May 14, 2010 at 4:24 pm

            if they don’t offer a reason for it on the show, it will vex me deeply. LOL

            Even though I don’t care about his hair very much I will also be vexed if they don’t offer an explanation. However, I’m sure we’re going to have to dig for it so that means the BL’s will never get it. LOL!

            And you are right–Eric did look almost boyishly beautiful and angelic with his blonde hair flying in the wind, and how sweetly he tried to push it back so he would look older and more businesslike! lol. He can’t stand not to look menacing and fierce. heee.

            May 14, 2010 at 4:37 pm

            I agree and I’m the same way. I never found long hair on a man attractive. Don’t know why but if it’s blonde and long, kinda makes it worse. I am so glad they cut off his hair, completely changed him. But yes, everyone has different taste I guess.

    Theories about the “kiss” scene:

    1. She’s messing with him.

    2. She just found out about Bill (his betrayal and/or cheating?) and comes onto Eric because she’s upset. It would explain why he looks so concerned and confused: http://i41.tinypic.com/34rgjtx.png

    SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER

    In the third episode of season 3, we’ll get a closer look at Bill’s human family when a flashback to 1866 shows us Caroline Compton raising a shotgun towards a stranger approaching, who turns out to be her husband. Caroline is a young woman at this point, in her 20s, and described as “a lovely, very strong, brave, well-bred and well-spoken Southern woman.” This suggests that we’ll actually hear from Caroline this time, interacting with Bill.

    • May 14, 2010 at 5:12 am

      OK I’m nearly ready to discount this as a dream/fantasy sequence – either Sookie’s or Eric’s.

      1. There is blood smeared on her shirt. Messy shit like that doesn’t usually find it’s way into dream scenes or fantasies.

      2. If this was a fantasy of Eric’s while he’s with Yvetta, the setting seems wrong. You would expect them to be either in Fangtasia, the basement or Eric’s office. They are definitely not in any of those places.

      3. After a million rewatches trying to work out exactly where E and S are, they DO appear to be in the same place as the earlier bit with Alcide. There is a similar yellow/cream wall in both scenes and the lighting is very similar. You can see the cream wall behind Eric’s head in one shot. This is a house we haven’t seen before and as Alcide is lounging around in it with his shirt off (ummm..that was an unexpectedly pleasant treat), I’m willing to bet this is his apartment in Jackson. Sookie is also wearing the lace top in the Alcide scene that she was wearing in that still pic with him so this is definitely not in BT.

      The dialogue is definitely off for Sookie. This is some sort of game, but it’s the start peeps because it’s definitely for real.

      • 237 Dee
        May 14, 2010 at 5:22 am

        I think they expect us to just think it is a dream, especially with Sookie’s line. Then the surprise will be that it’s not a dream but real. Also, I would hope Sookie would dream of herself dressed differently or Eric dream of her dressed differently haha

      • 239 Serena
        May 14, 2010 at 5:30 am

        That blood would be consistent with her wounds from the were attacking her in the club, I can’t see it on the white lace outfit, but it might just be obscured because she is putting that shoulder into Alcide… sigh, must go watch again.

        • 240 Serena
          May 14, 2010 at 5:44 am

          Alcide seems to have a washcloth in one hand, and then behind them on the bed (its right in between them) there appears to be a first aid kit. The red cross is visible.

          So yep, blood = crescent marks = no dream.

        May 14, 2010 at 7:52 am

        I think is possible that she could be messing with him, his face shows how extremely surprised is him by her behavior. So maybe he challenged her thinking she wouldn’t dare, and she did it to scare the shit out of him (as his face shows rflom!!!)

        • 251 Dee
          May 14, 2010 at 7:59 am

          I think so too, and even if it is this then I am still happy. I read some comments from BL’s saying how she is playing Eric, and I think they expect us to be upset if this is so. But for EL’s we don’t mind at all and love it. I think we’re happy to see she feels comfortable enough with him to do this, bc s1 or s2 she never would have. It also shows the playful side to their friendship that we loved in the books, and this would definitely be considered flirting.

          • May 14, 2010 at 9:07 am

            Totally! In fact I am pretty much convinced she’s playing him. And I don’t mind at all. Because if this is real, as I suspect it is…..this is getting out of their heads and into REALITY. And THAT is progress. I don’t want to see them hook up yet, all I want to see is her warming to him and it looks like we’re going to get it.

            I don’t think she’s playing Eric for the same reasons they think she is though. Popular opinion is that she is trying to use her feminine wiles to encourage him to help her find Bill.

            Completely ignoring established facts once again . Just as in the books, Eric’s ass is on the line with QSA if Bill isn’t found – just the circumstances are different. He doesn’t need Sookie throwing himself at him to be motivated to find him LOL.

      Okay so now i feel dumb cause i found out this is a really old spoiler, but was reposted because they recast the part of Caroling Compton….but whats interesting is that in episode 3 it says Bill is haunted by visions of his past, and thats the SAME episode that he has the flashback of Caroline…so my guess is Caroling flashback + Haunted by visions of his past= Definitely going to see Bill kill his wife.

        May 14, 2010 at 4:39 pm

        See I’ve been thinking about the whole “He couldn’t help himself from raping her” thing. In TB they’ve set the precedent that feeding and sex isn’t linked and that age is no factor in it.

        We’ve seen Eric feeding from a donor with no pressing need to have sex with her but more importantly we’ve seen Jessica having sex with Hoyt and refraining from feeding on him. A very old vampire and a newborn both with the same level of control.

        So if the trunk scene or something similar happens then the ‘feeding and sex are linked you can’t have one without the other’ theory is bullcrap.

    May 14, 2010 at 1:29 pm

    Hmm, I really think Bill is screaming because he feels Sookie getting hot and heavy with somebody.

    If this is any indication of how he reacts, just imagine what Bill might do to Sookie if she ‘smells like Eric’–subsequent to the blue boxer scene– when they rescue him.

    • 280 MASpencer
      May 14, 2010 at 1:46 pm

      Hmm… not sure. Mostly because I don’t see Sookie actually getting hot and heavy with ANYONE just yet. Thinking about it? Maybe. But that wouldn’t be any different than what she’s been doing since Dallas, and it hasn’t appeared to have devastated Bill thus far.

      However… that theory would lend some credence to the idea that Bill attacks Sookie in a jealous rage– and THAT’S how she ends up in the hospital with her neck all bandaged up. We’ll just have to wait and see.

      Personally, I totally think this is either a flashback or a melodramatic outburst following a flashback– and that it’s related to Bill’s “haunting memories,” which prompt him to swear an unlikely alliegance. All that happens in the first three episodes, so it would make sense that we would see hints of it in these early promos.

      • 281 sunnynala
        May 14, 2010 at 2:03 pm

        She wouldn’t actually have to DO anything for Bill to go all drama queen on us. Just the emotions involved with her being attracted to someone, wanting him bad, whether it’s Alcide or Eric, would be enough to send him off the deep end. And we know she’s going to get emotional over Eric, it’s inevitable.

        • 282 sunnynala
          May 14, 2010 at 2:11 pm

          And just to add, this might be foreshadowing. If he’s screaming like this when Sookie doesn’t actually do anything just gets hot and bothered, it will lay the groundwork for Bill’s attack on Sookie after the blue boxer scene. (yes, I am convinced they will show this scene)

          Not that I disagree we will see Bill killing his wife in flashback. I am sure we will. However, I am NOT convinced that we will see any agonizing guilt from him.

        • May 14, 2010 at 2:20 pm

          But he already seems to know, instinctively that she feels that attraction to Eric. There were numerous signs in Dallas.

          I’m not feeling that reaction has anything to do with Sookie. Mainly because I don’t buy that his interest in her extends much past how she can get him in with the queen at this point. I think he cares about her – but I don’t think he feels the sort of soul wrenching deep love for her that would elicit a reaction like that.

          There’s something else going on here. And whatever it is, it’s about Bill.

            I agree.

            I think it has to do with a dramatic and heartrending Kodak moment from his past that involves his wife and/or Lorena.

            If it has to do with something that Sookie might be feeling for someone else, then AB would be perpetuating him as the poor victim of the show…

            I agree he felt her feelings in Dallas but he was still with her then and able to control her and run interference with Eric. Now she’s out from under his thumb and out on her on.

            I also agree, he does not feel a soul wrenching deep love for her, but he’s a psychopath who is obsessed with possessing her. He’s unstable, delusional, and violently emotional. I could def see a reaction like this from him at any indication that Sookie is turning away from him, that she badly wants someone else, and that she’s thinking serioulsy of acting on her feelings. And he can’t do a damn thing about it.

                Gigi, I don’t see any blood? If you stop the vid at 32 seconds his mouth and fangs are completely clean.

                However, that doesn’t mean he’s not having a flashback. I just find it hard to believe that Bill would be that agonized about a past murder. He has no conscience, imo.

                  Yes Sunny, Bill fangs are clean, but you can clearly see the blood in the corner of his mouth here: http://i617.photobucket.com/albums/tt254/Wal-y/Blogs/Bill-BloodinLips.jpg

                  That’s why I don’t think this scene has something to do with him feeling Sookie’s feelings. If it has to do with a flashback or a present act, that we actually don’t know at this moment. But I have to tell you that AB portrayal of Bill has been pretty much the victimized and tortured soul, so I really think this reaction was included as an attempt to play the sympathy card as some has said. Oh, and also as an attempt to place again his beloved SM in this year’s race for an award…

                      I have to admit that even I felt bad for him when I watched that clip. There’s something in his agony that really pulled on my heartstrings. No matter how disgusting someone is, I still don’t want to see them in pain.

                      This is true, Sunny. I think he had more blood on him even after he spared that FOTS kid.

                      Weird.

                      Assuming somebody is dead, though, this makes a case for accidental draining as opposed to full-on attack. He has a similar stain on his lips to what Eric had after his session with the blood hooker.

                      And if THAT’S the case– and it’s Caroline, too– it would suggest that she allowed him to feed off of her. Maybe they’ll portray Caroline as an OG fangbanger? LOL.

                      Guess we’ll all find out soon enough…

                      What if Lorena killed her and he couldn’t stop her in time? And the blood on his lips is after he kissed Caroline’s dead corpse?

                      May 15, 2010 at 7:21 pm

                      Could be, but I think because the blood is seen more inside his mouth than smeared outside of it, that he was actually feeding from whoever died.

                      To add to this, if we learn that Bill accidentally killed Caroline, I think we’ll probably find that he went all cold and evil AFTER the fact… pure nihilism, and all that.

                      This would, in turn, suggest that Bill was at least somewhat sincere in his sanctimonious protests to Lorena before she released him… a thought that makes me cringe, due to the overwrought and melodramatic tone of that dialogue.

                      Whatever. As Gigi would say: Pfffft.

                      If Lorena killed Caroline, it might make sense. Bill might have been a constant whiner about how much he loved his wifey, and Lorena decides to eliminate her so she can own Bill’s heart completely. (well, in her psycho eyes she would).

                      But it casts Bill in a sympathetic light again like Gigi said. Always the victim, that Beehll.

            You raise an interesting point, SVB. I have no doubt that the truth about Bill’s interest in Sookie will at least START to come out this season, if not explode like a bomb in viewers’ faces.

            But I wonder if Alan Ball is going to play the sympathetic “you made me love you, I didn’t want to do it” card with Bill, or if he’s going to expose Bill as an outright lying POS, as Sunny postulates.

            I’m SO intensely curious about how this season is going to unfold.

              And that’s the million dollar question, isn’t it.

                I don’t believe it’s a case of either/or. I think it’s both…only more.

                He thinks he loves her and all the superficial trappings of the relationships says he does because he’s a consummate actor and a sociopath. However, what he feels is not real love it’s a drive to possess Sookie, to own her. Not only that, he wants to mold her into his vision of the Flower of Southern Womanhood and will brook no deviations from his ideal.

                Sadly, the BL’s will continue to see his destructive brand of ‘love’ as “Romantic”. puke.

                However, he’s also a POS liar who has not told Sookie one true thing and I have no doubt this will be made clear.

                You know, as much as I would like to see it play out Sunny’s way, I’m going to stick my neck out and say Ball is going to play the sympathetic card. Mostly because of the conversation about “monogamy” that Bill had with the Queen– I think that’s a hint that what may have started as a ruse has transformed into something more on his end.

                However, that doesn’t make Bill’s actions any more forgiveable, from where I stand. It’s kind of like a cheating boyfriend saying “but I LOVE you!” after he’s been caught. It might make throwing him out a little harder– but the game is irrevocably changed at that point. Paradise is lost, and you just can’t go back after something like that.

                Anyway, this will still offer an opening for Bill apologists to condemn Sookie for not forgiving him. But let’s be honest– this isn’t a 30-year marriage with children involved. They’ve been together TWO MONTHS. Engagement ring or not, Sookie would be crazy to take Bill back under the circumstances– whether he says he loves her or not– and if any BL actually stopped to put that into perspective, I think they would realize that.

                  Yap… But it is very important to considerate that is Sookie’s first love and she is old enough already. Seeing how she was raised I’m sure she was very disturved of the fact of lacking a man and desperate to fall in a relationship. She knows she doesn’t really love him (she told Tara) but she wants to learn to love him and she has seem him as her fiance since. We should see it as any teen first relationship. And so she just look the other way when sees something she may not like. And as she is making herself believing, she could also make herself go back to him. Unless she learns not the truth of his actions (which she could excuse even the worst just as many women do) but how she has act and her way to mature. We have seen her acting as a teen in all the series, but since Bill it was like an stupid teen. Or should I say a child? I’ve seing children which much more mature behaving…

                    No human men care for her and they think she crazy. Sam has not tell her how he felt until Bill arrived. Sookie fell for Bill because she not read his mind. Sookie talked herself into loving Bill and now we find out that when human drinks their blood they are sexual attractive to them. I would not call that a love story.

                      Yeah she was attracted to Bill mostly because of the intrigue of meeting her first vampire, and the fact that she found out she couldnt read his mind. If she had been able to read his mind it would have been bye bye Bill. She was intrigued and it was a relief to be around him. Thats how it started. And later on she liked feeling protected and less lonely. Thats why she relies on Bill so much. Shes never had that before.

                  I think that in the end he will use “some” of the sympathetic card but at the same time he’s not going to hold any punches with the Bill character. I think that he will be shown to do something awful but I’m wondering if he will also be redeemed eventually. If so it wouldn’t be too bad because it would be consistent with the books. In the books, Sookie abjured him for a while but then she let him back in her life as somewhat of a friend and he pursues her for much of the series including Book 10.

                  To me, it doesnt make one bit of difference if Bill loves Sookie. Fact is, hes not gonna tell her any of his secrets. SOOKIES gonna have to find out herself or through someone else, which makes it sooo much worse. If he admitted to her all his mistakes and utter F ups, and gave her the choice to forgive him or leave, we could deem him more honorable and worthy of forgiveness. But the fact is, he was planning on marrying Sookie without telling her ANYTHING. This makes him not only a liar, but an emotional manipulator. He cant even be a man and say what needs to be said. And so what if he was ordered by the Queen and CANT tell? The only reason he cant tell is cause he knows Sookie would refuse to work for the Queen, and would dump his ass. If she knew, it would give her a chance to make a decision with all the information given to her. And the fact is, the Queen thing isnt the only thing Bill is hiding. Its one bomb after another with him.

S I think AB will end up making him worse than CH did, I think Sam the dog saw bill in the woods, thus Sam/Bill’s conversation on the porch about lies after the maenad killing. I believe Sam will tell Sookie.

                Have you all watched the pilot for True Blood on DVD with Alan Ball’s commentary? He basically says something like ‘There is a reason why Bill showed up in Bon Temps and got to know Sookie. If you read the books you know what that means and yes, we are going to include that in the show.”

    OK revelation incoming..

    The brick wall is at Sookie’s house.

    Eric asks for his invitation into the house – cut to Sookie looking at him doe-eyed with the brick wall behind her. If Eric is asking her to invite him in, it has to be her house.

    So that first promo pic of the two of them with her up against the wall is definitely at her house.

      I don’t know SVB. The staircase is directly opposite the front door of the house and as Sookie is standing in the door the opening to the living room should be visible at her left shoulder, not a brick wall.

      Here is a view of the front door from the dining room, as Sookie heads to the stairs to find the horrible photoshop picture, and with the living room directly to her right:

        I think this might be Alcide’s apartment. i see a bit of creamy yellow above the brick, just like in the snip from the vid. I think after the were attack at her house, Eric called Alcide and had him take her directly to Jackson and this is Eric showing up to make sure she’s settled?

        If you’ll watch Eric when he comes into Sookie’s house smiling with his fangs out, it looks to me like he sped right in and NOBODY was standing at the door to invite him in, almost like he had a prior invitation. It looks like he’s come upon the were attack and is gleefully spoiling for a fight.

          Alcide lives in a building though, so we would’ve seen a hallway instead of the being able to see the outdoors behind him. Honestly, I think those might be two scenes that are put together. The scene where eric asks to come in and sookies face right after I think are separate. They probably just found a clip of sookie that makes us think thats her reaction. I think the one we see of sookie is also with eric but at a different time.

              Actually they showed pics online of TB alcide’s apartment building. They showed us the outside of it, I think in real life its a hotel. But someone posted pics from when they were shooting. I think they also said there is a scene of Janice Herveaux and Sookie in the lobby.

                  Here is a pic of Merlotte’s, you can see on one side there is brick. Gonna see if I can find a better pic

                    But you could be right about the editing. In the clip Sookie could be opening the door at Alcides, which should be about ep 3, while Eric’s clip shows him at Sookie’s house earlier in the season.

                      I don’t think she is opening a door at all in the shot they show right after. She has to be outside im guess bc of the brick behind her. Inside of Merlotte’s there is brick but the color is different.

                Yeah this is what I’m basing my assumption on that Alcide lives in an apartment.
                He did in the books, and we had those outside shots a couple of months back of that big white hotel, and Sookie wearing the outfit she is wearing in this scene with Alcide out front of it.

              I know, thats why I say they are two different scenes. I dont think the scene with Eric asking to enter sookies house is the same as the one of her face after.

                *is not the same* I meant to say the scene with Eric asking to come e in is not in the same scene that shows her right after. The one with Eric, I think its definitely at her house. Theres no way that the shot of her face after is in the same scene bc there is no exposed brick right behind her in her own house, especially not with her facing the doorway.

                      I think it’s the only thing that makes sense. Because no matter whose house Eric shows up at asking to be invited in, I don’t think we’d see brick like that behind Sookie. Even homes that have brick on the inside, its quite different.

                      That shot of Sookie is definitely from the pic we see of her with Eric in front of her. I hope its the “don’t underestimate yourself” scene bc that way it will be in the promo this weekend and we would know for sure.

                  I know, that is what I’ve been saying. I agree with you. They have spliced two scenes from different locales.

                  Then you have to ask yourself ‘why would they do that’? If he is asking her for an invite into her house why didn’t they show Sookie in THIS same scene instead of a different scene at another location? It’s odd don’t you think?

                  Almost like they didn’t want to show us Sookie for some reason and had to take a clip from another scene to avoid it.

                  I think they are making it look like he needs an invitation into her house when I don’t think he does THIS season. I think he’s already been in the house.

                    Yeah I think they want to give us the impression that Sookie is surprised and maybe even giving the impression like she doesn’t want to . I’m sure we’ll see a much different reaction from her.

                    I remember from a few months ago when the actor playing the were was tweeting about his scenes in episode 3, there was a photo he took of a screen while they were shooting the entrance to Sookie’s house. You can barely make out Sookie holding open the door and Eric standing in the entrance. This is probably that shot. If you believe that Eric shows up first at Merlotte’s, this would make sense that Sookie expecting him would garner a much different reaction than the one they show in this promo. Plus, the brick wall behind her looks to be a different building than her own home.

    Looking how bad Sookie’s house is i think that all the money for Dallas are not enough LOL Viking’s help here?LOL
    Btw….Bill’s screaming i think is b/c he’s remembering something with Lorena maybe or Russel…we know he will have flashbacks so i presume he screams after remembering something bad happened when he visited his family…..
    Just my opinion

    Look how Eric is watching Sookie’s house….mmmm…..maybe he was thinking something…or will telle her in the end how bad her house is..and the fix it….we know he can do it..c’mon Ball give that to us!LOL

      Eric owes Sookie $10,000 dollars and she can fix her own home with that money. I hope Bill paid the bill and Sookie don’t stuck paying for it.

    Does anyone know when this will air on TV again? I can’t get the details you guys are seeing, on my crappy computer. I’d like to see it in HD where I can pause it clearly.

      Now that it’s out, I’d say HBO will be airing between shows pretty frequently. They’ve been airing the minisodes after other movies and shows.

    some kind soul over at Livejournal has capped the entry thing, so now I can actually *see* what’s happening at the end of this sucker. very helpful 🙂 Like, Tara tackling Sookie, QSA and Eric, angry animatronic were… etc. good stuff!

    All this TB goodness. I’m on overload. I love Eric striding in the door spoiling for a fight, I assume that it’s just before the fight with the Were as he’s wearing the same shirt. Also think the scene between him and Sookie is real but she is playing him in some way. Love it!

    Also what’s with Jason sticking his arse in the fridge? Clips of Jason have made me wonder if they might be doing his Werepanther transformation early. The one of him in the woods saying “I need help” and now this (Weres run hot). I figure it might just be him freaking out from guilt though. Or maybe he and Crystal rolled about in some poison oak! 🙂

    Is his the full trailer or just another trailer for the trailer type deal? There was none of the voiceover stuff on it which I expected. I’m hoping a longer one is to come this weekend.

    • 375 Dee

      We might see a different trailer on Saturday, that would be great.

      This is very OT but just found out Rutina Wesley(Tara) lives in my neighborhood. I wonder if she still does, it says she splits her time between LA and Astoria.

    So the caps show some interesting things about Sookie’s wardrobe.

    From what we know, Sookie leaves Alcide’s and enters the club in the white lace outfit and black headband.
    When she gets attacked by the Were in the club, she doesn’t have the lace top on but just the camisole that was underneath. Aroo? Did it get too hot in there? The things made out of LACE!
    Then she has the lace top on again when she is back at Alcide’s.

    • 378 Serena
      May 14, 2010 at 10:31 pm

      I’m wondering if this leads to a very worthy scene where she becomes incensed with Debbie Pelt and takes it off. I can see the look on Alcide’s face now! lol.

    Hey ladies, do we know what the song is playing over this promo and who’s singing it? I had a flash thinking it might be juliette lewis, but I am by know means and expert on her music. Just thought it might be a neat homage to her recent work association with the gorgeous AS??

    OMFG! I have been away and only just got the chance to watch that clip. Three things struck me:

    1. Look at the length of Eric’s fangs! *wibble*

    2. Look at the expression in his eyes as she is talking about her skills. 😆

    3. Sookie and Eric look so, so good together!

    I am choosing to ignore the shot of Sookie and Alcide.

    • 385 lala
      May 15, 2010 at 1:06 pm

      Yeah but Alcide looks so awesome in that shot. Better than how he is described in the books, for sure.

      • 386 Lotus
        May 15, 2010 at 3:38 pm

        Alcide does look amazing. He really fits the book description, in my opinion. Though I grew to dislike him immensely in that storyline and he became ugly.

    Ah, I have watched this far too many times. I’m SO excited about season 3. Less than a month! Woop.

    I hope we see some Sookie-Eric flirting this season, and from that teaser it looks like we do!

    May 15, 2010 at 12:49 pm

    This is my first time to comment here, but I’ve been a lurker for a couple of months now and absolutely love this place. Everyone is so clever and really seems to share my love of delving deep into the Sookieverse, whether book or tv show. It’s nice to know others are just as obsessed!

    So, these are just a few of my thoughts on the new trailer. I LOVE where AB seems to be taking this season. It really appears to be following the basic path of the books, and I can see where later elements of the story are being brought in earlier. It’s great that Debbie Pelt will not only be crazy, but she’ll be even more insane as a V-addict. I know that she’s a sore point in the books, but I really enjoyed her character even as I hated her. It will be interesting to see whether or not Alcide is as blind to her in the show as he is in the books. Absolutely love Lorena and so happy to know she’s coming back. It’s strange that we haven’t seen any of her clips this season, though I have a feeling her role on the show will be a hefty one. Really curious about how the stories of the Queen and the King will overlap and just what Eric’s vengeance story will be about. After reading a few spoilers, my thoughts are that it has to do with his father and possibly Russell Edgington. Cannot wait!

    Also, I am so eager to see the E/S storyline enter a more flirtatious/friendship state. I’m not in the camp of those who want to see them get down to business this season, because I believe they really need to cultivate the relationship further before that can be believable. Sookie will need to trust Eric, and I do believe we will get that this season. Bill’s betrayal will take a huge role here, I think. In watching the E/S scene from the promo, I want to make one comment. It appears that the cut where she’s saying “I have skills …” is not continuous with the cut in the middle where Eric is staring at her, dumbfounded. Her hand is not climbing or around the back of his neck, and it looks as though she wobbles slightly as if he has pulled her away. Maybe the middle part of that scene is what happens after, and he moves her back before fully committing to the kiss, perhaps even breaking it before it can happen? I almost think this would be better than him giving in to the moment, but it’s possible I’m just reading way too much into it. Wow, June 13th feels like an eternity!

    Anyway, just a couple of thoughts. Hope to be commenting here more. You guys are so insightful!

      Great comment Lotus!

      And yes, we are all very, very obsessed! lol.

      I love Lorena too, but I have a feeling we haven’t seen anything out of her so far because most all her scenes will be with Bill and they don’t want to give too much away, beginning with who kidnapped him.

        May 15, 2010 at 3:39 pm

        Thanks, sunny!

        You are probably spot on about Lorena’s absence in the promos. I saw on Twitter where TrueBloodHBO confirmed there would be a longer trailer tonight on HBO before The Hangover. Can’t wait!

    Not that I mind the view,.. but why is Eric only wearing a tank in that clip? Why would one alpha male walk into another alpha male’s apartment (or crawl in through the window) dressed like that? In most scenes we see him with a jacket on and we’ve only ever seen him in the tank when he is at Fangtasia in his own element or has taken the jacket off, (Dallas). He just seems far too casual and underdressed to be flying around Jackson like that. I can’t see him just taking the jacket off in front of Alcide or Sookie either, wouldn’t she bark at him, “um you’re not staying that long!”?

    I’m thinking, what if they transferred the snuggling scene to Alcide’s place? That could be one whole episode of hot.

    Seeing as AB loves cliffhangers and in-episode-hangers, it would fit the bill, oh who is in bed with Sookie? -especially because it occurs after her almost hook-up with Alcide. Also, if Sookie had just rebuffed Eric before that clip, it would make more sense of why she is being relatively cruel to him and why he looks surprised. hmm..

    As much as I love Vampire Diaries, I happened to be a bit drunk when I watched the finale last night, and subsequently, the only thing I can remember is Damon in the fire (because I thought that was going to be the cliff-hanger – ugh, I hate cliffhangers), and the True Blood promo (as much as I love TVD, True Blood is my fucking show). A rewatch is clearly in order. 🙂

    Does anybody else think that the Eric/Sookie scene where they are about to kiss is probably another dream sequence? As much as I appreciate Sookie’s naughty imagination, I just want to scream at her to just grab the Viking by the balls and do him already. *lol*

    The Sookie/Alcide snuggling scene was pretty hot. I get the feeling that next season’s real triangle is going to be Eric/Sookie/Alcide, and when they finally do find Bill, he’s going to be all “hello, remember me, the actual boyfriend?” (Kudos if you recognize this reference.) *lol* Bill.
