Five Days to True Blood Season 5!By
Oh my! After months of waiting, I can hardly believe it’s just five days to True Blood Season 5! The first episode of the new season is set to air on June 10, and in the run-up to the premiere, HBO has been releasing tiny little tidbits of information about what’s going to happen in episode one. In fact, there’s a great video featuring the cast of True Blood Season 5 at the Hollywood premiere of the first episode where they talk about what to expect this year.
Joe Manganiello says coyly, “I’ve been waiting three years for what happens and what goes down this year.” Dare we hope that this means that Alcide, everyone’s favorite hunky werewolf, gets together with Sookie at last? Certainly, her other beaus seems otherwise occupied. Alexander Skarsgard, who plays sexy Eric, says, “The relationship between Bill and Eric is not us fighting over Sookie. We have a common enemy now.” With both vampires busy with the Authority, and with Russell Edgington, that might really mean that Sookie takes up with Alcide doesn’t it?
There are also these oddly erotic scenes of Bill and Eric in these fetish-inspired outfits. (I kid you not – watch out the two hunks in little straps of leather in the video!) The only thing that detracted from the sexiness were the blinking red lights on their harnesses – surely those aren’t for fun. Perhaps they’re a means of tracking the two vampires – or even blowing them up? In any case, Sam Trammell (who plays Sam Merlotte) says mysteriously, “It’s a dangerous year for everybody.”
So, five more days until the season premiere! Whatever the case, it’s definitely going to be exciting! Janina Gavankar says, “We just saw the first episode, and it’s insane!” Ball adds, “It’s a lot of story paced into one hour!”.
Check out the video to get a glimpse of the first episode, then tune in on June 10 to find out what happens. (P.S. Waiting really does suck, doesn’t it?)
