Some more Promo Goodness…

Another couple of promos with Season 3 snippetts, which aired tonight on HBO.

I don’t think there’s anything particularly earth shattering here, but I’ll post them for shits and giggles anyway.

    We were right! Jessica is in a Merlotte’s uniform!

    I love Pam’s line!: “You pickin’ up what I’m throwin’ down?” Lol, badass Pam is badass.

    And I guess it is ERW-I had begun to think they had replaced her.

      ERW definitely does look very different. Maybe we can hope for a more mature, non-Yahtzee playing queen this season? If we could only work on her not grabbing Eric’s face…

      I’m liking Sookie in the black wig. Or who knows, maybe they died her hair to match Eric’s, lol. Not exactly sure where this would be, since we’ve already seen her at the were club looking “normal”.

        Sooo THIS, PVC! From your keyboard to God’s ears. ๐Ÿ™‚

        (Not exactly sure where this would be, since weโ€™ve already seen her at the were club looking โ€œnormalโ€.)

        Oh, there were some pics of her in that black wig posted in some S3 thing recently (can’t remember where) and she’s shown briefly in another promo in CD wearing it. I think she goes back to CD in disguise.

          We can always hope, right?

          Somehow I must have missed those pics. It seems pretty dumb to go to the same place with & without a disguise. But our TB Sookie isn’t the brightest bulb in the bulb box, so I guess we shouldn’t expect too much.

                VikingLover, why did you give out to Alfstoria there. All she was that Sookie looked fantastic in S&M wear. Which she does! She wasn’t attacking anyone about their opinion.

                I think you must have misunderstood alfstoria, she didn’t diss anybody in this post or the other… she was just saying that she liked Sookie in the wig and that it was a twist from the books where Eric was the one in the disguise.

      While I am happy to see Jessica gain a measure of financial independence…I have to admit I’m really concerned that she is working for Sam. Because let’s face it…statistically, waitressing at Merlott’s has to be the most dangerous job in America! lol

      And she’s in jail.

      I guess we know where that ‘6 hours’ went. Sookie headed home, I guess because she thought Bill threw a petualant fit and left her in the restaurant. LOL! She must have gone straight to his house to look for him and then couldn’t leave BT for Fangtasia straight away because she then had to deal with Tara and the brouhaha over Eggs’ death.

    • May 31, 2010 at 6:23 am

      A vampire waitress while in the books there was a vampire cook and a vampire bartender (Ch. Twining if I’m not wrong…) ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Jessica maybe? that pic is very small…ill check my large tv soon

      • May 31, 2010 at 2:28 pm

        It is MOST DEFINITELY JESSICA. I played it on my big screen hdtv and it is definitely her. Sookie is also wearing the same outfit she wears when she has the conversation with Eric when she says “dont underestimate me.”
        Maybe she brings Jessica to Fangtasia with her…that is when Jessica asks Pam about how to get rid of a body.

    May 31, 2010 at 2:05 am

    I was pretty excited at seeing Hoyt and Jason together there; is it sad that I’m wishing for some bromance action on TB? Lol.

    And like Sunny, I loved Pam’s line…and her voice saying it, lol. I know we’ve talked about it before but her accent is awesome!

    But yeah, other than that, kinda ho-hum.

    One MOMENT! Sookie looks and is fabulous, or don’t you remember that Eric is in disguise not only in CD but in B#2 in Texas and Sookie makes fun of how is so easy to recognize as ERIC?.
    She is the Best.

    • 45 Freyja

    May 31, 2010 at 4:04 am

    At the 8-9 second mark of the Season Three Premiere clip, I saw Jessica in what appears to be the crawlspace beneath a house shocked by the discovering of a dead body. What that scene could be anything….it immediately made me think back to Lorena’s shack out in the woods and how Bill saw the corpses of her previously drained victims.

    Perhaps Bill’s True Blood diet supplemented with a nightly Sookie snack hasn’t been cutting it? lol

    • 47 pennydreadful
      May 31, 2010 at 4:12 am

      *while that scene…

      Sorry for the typo. After rewatching the clip, I don’t think it’s anything quite as juicy as Bill pulling a Lorena style corpse hording at his plantation house. I think the corpse is probably the trucker she picked up in the minisode. He may not have been quite as dead as she thought he was ๐Ÿ˜‰

    May 31, 2010 at 2:38 pm

    Looks like Tara (who is tied up) is wearing the same outfit that she was wearing when Franklin bites her in the promos…

    As for Arlene- I think that clearly refers to her pregnancy (probably by Terry during the orgies) that has been implied from the get go by Alan Ball

    • 50 eowyn
      May 31, 2010 at 4:47 pm

      The timeline would be all wrong for Arlene to be pregnant by Terry..unless they do a “3 week later” thing… If she is pregnant right now…It would have to be Rene’s as S2 only occured over 12-14 days…

      and when I read the title of this I thought it said “some more porno goodness” now I’m disappointed!

      • 51 Dee
        May 31, 2010 at 4:58 pm

        Eowyn-I guess depends on what episode we see Arlene is pregnant. I think she definitely is though and from interviews I think it is Terry because they say something along the lines of dealing with consequences from things that happened under MA’s control. There was also the casting call for an OB/GYN. I agree that she can only recently be pregnant.

        If they wait until let’s say one week in S3 timeline, then maybe she can be about 2-3 weeks pregnant.

        • May 31, 2010 at 5:27 pm

          I remember someone, maybe AB himself, said that s3 covers an arc of only 8 days so… WTF?
          But maybe I’m wrong…

          • 53 eowyn
            May 31, 2010 at 5:50 pm

            Yeah..I read that too, 8 days..but cannot find the article…if I come across it..I’ll come back and link it..

          • 55 Dee
            May 31, 2010 at 7:20 pm

            WOW really? that is crazy and sure is a lot to happen in just 8 days. I was confused by some things but explains it if certain events all happen within the same day I guess.

  14. 57 Dunkinstiks
    May 31, 2010 at 9:55 pm

    That makes me wonder if Arlene is indeed pregnant, will her baby have any of MA’s influence, due to it being conceived while they were all spelled.

    • 58 AstralRomance
      May 31, 2010 at 10:44 pm

      I was wondering the same thing because if she is pregnant and it is Terry’s baby then considering how slow time moves in the show we could be up to season ten before Arlene finally gives birth. If the baby was conceived while under MA’s influence then maybe we could be looking at a rapidly increased pregnancy timeline hence why she needs a OB/GYN so soon.

      I was thinking Tara would be having that demon baby. I always thought there was more to that “Hunter’s Stew.” It didn’t have any ole heart in it, but a shifter’s heart.. and Karl likes to talk about Tara’s potential.

      • 62 VikingLover
        June 1, 2010 at 1:45 am

        I really wonder where the whole pregnancy thing with Arlene is going and how this will fit in with everything else. I’m at a loss on this one!

        • 63 pennydreadful
          June 1, 2010 at 1:54 am

          I’m wondering if they pursue the pregnancy storyline if Rene is the father of Arlene’s child. It’s plausible given that the first two seasons have only covered a period of about five to six weeks. Also, in S1 Arlene anxious about a late period, the thought of which Sookie overheard.

          • 64 MASpencer
            June 1, 2010 at 2:00 am

            I think this is a very good possibility, and it gives the story a much more sinister spin than a pregnancy by Terry would. Good call on the late period business, too– I totally forgot about that.

          • 65 VikingLover
            June 1, 2010 at 2:02 am

            I find it so odd that they should include this in the promo. Poor Arlene wasn’t even in the cast pic. Do you think they’ll go the way of the books and have Arlene turn on Sookie?

            • 66 PrettyVikingChains
              June 1, 2010 at 2:08 am

              Even though I would hate watching it, I hope that her storyline does play out similarly to how it does in the books. I think it’s important in showing Sookie that humans can’t be trusted anymore than any other creature, sometimes even less. If there’s any chance of Eric being her HEA, she needs to fully understand that concept.

              The actress who plays Arlene is doing another show now also, & in at least one interview that she did, she seemed to hint that she may not stick around TB for too long because she wasn’t getting enough airtime. I really hope that she plays it through though, because Arlene is a fairly important character, & so far I’ve really liked the actress. Surely she can find the time to do just 12 (or less) episodes a season, right?

              • 67 VikingLover
                June 1, 2010 at 2:22 am

                The actress is crazy for complaining publicly about airtime. That’s a sure way to get killed off a show. lol Plus, she’s working on one of the hottest shows around right now. It looks great on a resume no matter what. Does she really want to piss them off? Other show runners may not hire her because of it.

                Re Arlene as a character, I think you’re absolutely right, PVC. I would love to see Arlene become the intolerant FOTS’er she became in the books. Although it would make me sad to some extent because I really love Arlene and Terry together. lol You know what’s funny is that in S1 Arlene was a bit of a douche – sort of similar to how she was in the books. I always remember how she behaved during Gran’s funeral. However, in S2 she grew on me a little bit.

                • 68 PrettyVikingChains
                  June 1, 2010 at 2:40 am

                  Yeah, not really a smart move on her part. I can’t imagine why any of them wouldn’t want to stick around for the full ride.

                  TB Arlene definitely has the characteristics to easily transition into the intolerant, FOTS follower from the book. ITA about loving her & Terry together, but that could just be because I love TB Terry (loved the actor from his Gilmore Girls days). One thing that I find amazing about the show is how it can make me love the characters that in the book I hated (Arlene, Bill, Jason in the beginning, etc.). Of course that makes it even harder to watch when the TB versions turn into creeps, but that’s why it’s a drama!

              June 1, 2010 at 2:19 am

              VL- I think that someone like Arlene might react to such a crisis pregnancy by “finding religion.” Knowing what we do about her character, it’s not much of a stretch to imagine that the FotS’s militant brand of fundamentalism might be especially attractive to her thus paving the way for her later betrayal of Sookie.

              • 70 VikingLover
                June 1, 2010 at 2:24 am

                This is a very good point Pennydreadful. All the more reason to make it Rene’s baby instead of Terry’s.

              • 71 MASpencer
                June 1, 2010 at 3:45 am

                Similarly, this could lead to an abortion storyline. I’ve heard more than one story about women who have become militant right-to-lifers after their own abortion experiences, as if to somehow “atone” for their choice or to cope with their own mixed feelings about it. This type of scenario would fit in perfectly with the overarching message that True Blood is putting out there about hypocrisy.

                If Arlene becomes more involved with the fundamentalist contingent that way, it would open up the door for her involvement with the FotS, which was very much framed as a right-wing megachurch.

                And honestly, it would make more sense for it to go in this direction, as someone else has noted that with the breakneck pace of the timelines in this show, it would be hard to realistically work a nine-month pregnancy into the mix. Unless they went into full-on soap opera mode and had Arlene show up with a 17-year-old that just returned from boarding school next season. ๐Ÿ˜‰

                  June 1, 2010 at 11:44 am

                  LOL Or she could just be pregnant for the duration of her time on the show. She doesn’t necessarily have to give birth in order to see the “light”.

        • 73 MASpencer
          June 1, 2010 at 1:55 am

          Maybe it will be Karl reincarnated? One can only hope. If he comes out of the womb offering fresh towels, I suppose we’ll have our answer. ๐Ÿ˜‰

        • 78 Serena
          June 1, 2010 at 2:06 am

          I wonder if they’d give Arlene a child of the ‘light’ with Arlene being into the FOS, and then give Tara the ‘evil’ baby.

      • 79 Serena
        June 1, 2010 at 4:29 pm

        OMG, so I just transcribed the Hunter Souffle scene, and this was what flashed onto the screen:

        FYI: In Greek mythology, Dionysus was murdered as an infant and ripped to pieces. The Titans ate every part of him except his heart. His father, Zeus, took the heart and plated it in a woman, Semele. A new Dionysus grew from the heart and was reborn, or “twice born.”

        Interesting, very very interesting. So maybe the ‘God who comes’ came into Tara?

        • 80 MASpencer
          June 1, 2010 at 9:04 pm

          Seriously, I TOTALLY thought that was the point– it doesn’t make sense that Maryann was pushing so hard for Eggs and Tara to get together otherwise. (And I thought that’s where all the “egg” references were leading, too.)

          But now there are spoilers that Arlene is pregnant, and I can’t see them BOTH being knocked up. So whatever.

          For the record, that’s what annoyed me so much about the Maryann storyline. So many mythological loose ends were crammed into her character arc, and if they had properly followed through on even ONE, it could have been brilliant. As it is though, it just came off like a poorly executed mess.

          But maybe I’ll be forced to eat my words next season. We’ll see!

          • 81 Serena
            June 1, 2010 at 10:48 pm

            Why not? The whole town is pregnant in the books.I actually see it more as Tara being preggo in season 4. Especially if Arlene is pregnant with Rene, it seems to take a season to kick in. lol.

            • 82 Serena
              June 1, 2010 at 10:48 pm

              by Rene. lol not with Rene. lol

            • 83 MASpencer
              June 1, 2010 at 11:20 pm

              True, but in the books these pregnancies all happened organically. If both Tara AND Arlene ended up pregnant following the Maryann debacle it would feel starkly reminiscent of ‘Village of the Damned’ (even if it IS actually Rene’s baby, not Terry’s).

              Not that this is a problem, of course. (That movie is undeniably AWESOME.) It just seems unlikely to me.

              Even one pregnancy of this nature effectively illustrates the point that your past will always catch up with you, whether you have conveniently managed to “forget” it or not. I’m fairly certain this will be an overarching theme of the season, for ALL of the characters.

              Still, you could be right. Like I said, Maryann’s desire to hook Tara up with Eggs seems a little random otherwise– aside from the obvious purposes of her somehow feeding off of the sexual energy. (In which case, Tara really could have been having sex with ANYONE.)

              I don’t know. I should probably give the Eggs/Tara thing some more thought. Honestly, I tended to gloss over that side of the story because it just interested me so little.
