Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard)

Alan Ball’s Emmy-nominated supernatural drama will be returning for a chilling fifth season on June 10, 2012 where barmaid Sookie (Anna Paquin) is reeling from seeing Debbie Pelt (Brit Morgan) blow the back of Tara's (Rutina Wesley) head off, from seeing her grandmother's (Lois Smith) ghost, and from severing her relationships with Eric (Alexander Skarsgård) and Bill (Stephen Moyer).

Have a spoiler? Add it below.



True Blood left us with quite a few unanswered questions last season.

  • Who is the black wolf growling at Sam?
  • Will Sam call Maxine, Mama?
  • Will Hoyt ever forgive Jason?
  • Will Jason be alright with Jessica treating him like he's been treating women himself for years?
  • Who turned Steve Newlin and why did he wait so long to visit Jason?
  • Will Jessica feel Jason's fear and come racing to the rescue?
  • The way that Steve eye-f'd naked Jason and let out a whew, will he make Jason his new butt boy?
  • What's going on with the 'necks from Hot Shot? Did Ghost Daddy's seed take root?
  • What has Russell been up to since he escaped and who helped him escape?
  • Where are Russell's wolves? Did his wolves sniff him out and rescue him from the cement? Perhaps with the aid of one of Russell's other progeny?
  • What will Eric and Bill do about Russell?
  • Will Alcide warn Eric, Bill and Sookie about Russell in time?
  • Will Eric forgive Sookie for not choosing him?
  • Will Eric return Sookie's house to her?
  • Will Eric forgive Pam?
  • How will "The Authority" respond to the mess left by Nan, Eric and Bill's actions?
  • Who will replace Nan as the go-between for the AVL and The Authority?
  • Will there be a war between the vampire factions?
  • Are Bill and Eric going to go on the run?
  • What will an angry and distraught Pam do to Sookie?
  • Will Pam forgive Eric?
  • Is Tara really dead? Could she be turned to be saved?
  • Can Lafayette heal Tara with his brujo magic? Or will Tara come back as a spirit or a zombie?
  • Will there be repercussions for Alcide with Marcus' pack?
  • What kind of influence will Terry's former commander have on him?
  • What did Terry do in the service that haunted him so?
  • Will Sookie move on to Alcide now that she has decided to cut Eric and Bill loose?
  • Will Sookie turn to Alcide in her grief?
  • Can Sookie really move on from Eric and Bill?
  • Is Lafayette now a brujo and will he be able to control his magic or will it control him?
  • Anyone else wonder why and how Sookie became a witch? What about Tara? Tara was just a tag along at the beginning of the season--does she have real power like Maryann indicated in season 2?
  • Will Andy and Holly hook up?
  • Will Maurella reappear with a hybrid child sired by Andy and ask him to raise the child?
  • Are some of the Fae mating with humans to breed the ugly out of their inbred race?
  • Will Mab's agenda regarding hybrids being a danger to them cause further problems for Sookie, considering there is still travel between the two realms?
  • Where did Gran get the power to pull Marnie out of Lafayette?
  • What are the other two Fae, who flashed in just before Maurella, doing in our realm and who are they?
  • Will Lisa find new role models or will she end up like her Halloween costume?
  • Will Coby continue his love of mayonnaise?
  • Is Mikey really okay or will he continue to decapitate dolls?
  • Will Arlene heed Rene's warning?

No Romance for Rikki and Alcide on True Blood Season 5


True Blood Season 5 Spoilers - True Blood Don’t hold your breath for a romance between her and the suddenly single Alcide on the new season of “True Blood.” “All I can say is that everybody knows Alcide is holding a candle for Sookie”, Kelly Overton, who plays Rikki on True Blood this summer. “And who is to say that he is even (Rikki’s) type? She definitely lives life a little more on the edge than he does. It is definitely going to take a unique sort of person/being to catch Rikki’s eye and actually keep her interest.” “Rikki is pretty much the polar opposite of a damsel in distress,” she told TODAY.com. “You don’t want to be on her bad side, that is for sure!” “When we meet Rikki, she is not in the best of moods. Her pack master has gone missing,”Overton explained. “That is a pretty big deal in her world. She is pretty determined. She won’t let anyone or anything get in the way of finding out what happened to him.”

Carolyn Hennesy Speaks on "Great Dame" of a True Blood Character

Rosalyn Harris (Carolyn Hennesy)As one of the Authority members, Carolyn Hennesy plays Rosalyn Harris, who she describes as a "grand old broad" with pearls and impeccable hair spray. In the interview Carolyn revealed:

"There are two principle factions within the Authority. There are those who believe in mainstreaming, who wish to assimilate the humans and those who… do not. They simply view humans as a never-ending buffet.

Rosalyn is of the mindset that humans developed True Blood, they landed a man on the moon, they discovered Penicillin. What other miracles can they pull off? What else can they do for us?

We are very skeptical when we meet [Bill & Eric]. Relationships become very convoluted and confused. There will be tremendous shenanigans within the Authority and Bill and Eric will become part of that. Whose side are they on? That will be revealed as time goes on.
"

We all know that Eric is on the best side. Carolyn also promised epic battles ahead involving the
Authority.

True Blood Spoiler: Bill, Eric and Nora

TV Guide's William Keck has kept his word to True Blood fans today and released a new image of Eric and Bill from Season 5. And not only that, but the image also includes Eric's vampire sibling Nora.

True Blood Season 5 Spoilers - True Blood TV Guide also has a brief interview with the lucky actress, Lucy Griffiths, about her new role in the show.

"When True Blood premieres June 10, we'll get a taste of Eric Northman's bloodsucking, Godric-made vampire sister, Nora (Lucy Griffiths). 'She's an irreverent British lady who we think was turned during Elizabethan or Victorian times,' Lucy reveals. 'It's been years since she's seen Eric, and she is very excited. She looks up to him, but they've had a fiery love/hate relationship in the way that brothers and sisters do.' Nora is also part of the Vampire Authority ruling council, which will play a big part in the new season."

"In this exclusive photo from the premiere, Nora, Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) and Bill (Stephen Moyer) are on the attack. 'It occurs just after I've met them, and it's a reaction to being taken by surprise by some threatening characters,' teases the beautiful Brit, best known for playing Marian in the 2006-09 Robin Hood series.
Eight episodes into filming, there's no great Bon Temps romance for Nora, but Lucy has her eye on another new series regular: Italian actress Valentina Cervi,who plays ancient vampire seductress Salome: 'They're very close.'"

It may be a brief interview but Lucy does provide us with some tasty little snippets to wet our appetites. A love/hate relationship with her big brother sounds juicy, and hopefully means lots of opportunity for some great viking moments to come.

Some worried Eric and Sookie fans will be pleased to note that Nora is not having any great romance, and it's also interesting to note that she and Salome are very close. (Will Salome also be an Authority member perhaps?). We are seriously starting to look forward to seeing these two new female vamps and the impact they might have in the upcoming season.

Rocky Cleary (Aaron Christian Howles)Russell Edgington is back and so is a Sookie/Tara childhood flashback to playing kickball at school. We will also meet Marcus Bozeman's mama, Martha Bozeman (Dale Dickey) and a slew of werewolves. One of Holly's sons, Rocky Cleary (Aaron Christian Howles--pictured right) will definitely be in the episode. In addition to the regular cast, new characters Salome (Valentina Cervi) and Nora (Lucy Griffiths) will appear, and Steve Newlin will also be in this episode. It also appears that several members of The Authority will make an appearance as well as Roman (Chris Meloni). Since they are keeping Chris' character under wraps, we are not sure if his name is Roman or perhaps his nationality is Roman. The following also appear:
  • J.D. (Louis Herthum) - 50s, a particularly large Marine-type werewolf, he refuses to bow down before the new pack leader
  • Martha Bozeman (Dale Dickey) - In her late 40s, maybe 50, she’s a powerful, respected werewolf within the pack due to her late son’s position. She’s determined to perform a particular ritual

  • Cammy (Cherilyn Wilson) - This sorority girl with an especially hot body takes a liking to Jason (Ryan Kwanten) at a party and assumes they’ll be having sex
  • Team Captain 1 (Matthew Glen Johnson) - Seen in flashback, this 12-year-old boy is a bully who doesn’t pick Sookie for his kick ball team
  • Team Captain 2 (Sam Adler) - Seen in flashback, this 6th grade boy bullies Sookie and is very angry and disturbed when she reveals something private about his life
  • Nate (Brendan McCarthy)
  • Kenneth (Marque Richardson)
  • Young Sookie (Zenali Turner)
  • Young Tara (Avion Baker)
Here are some of the original casting calls that aren't listed above or perhaps their names were changed:
  • [JUDGE CLEMENTS] 50ish, corrupt, a former athlete whose body has been neglected, this judge radiates power and uses his position to get a speeding ticket for his son fixed
  • [WADE] 14, Caucasian, a hunter, he is Holly’s (Lauren Bowles) youngest son who is still willing to give Holly the benefit of the doubt

Carolyn Hennesy Interview, Vampire Authority Member “Rosalyn Harris”

I must say that I really enjoyed this interview mostly because it was done by a fan of the show so there was a little gushing. Here are a couple of excerpts.--glam

Q: You alsTrue Blood Season 5 Spoilers - True Bloodo have Chris Meloni (from Law & Order: SVU) coming in.
Yes, Chris Meloni and you
have to give a tremendous amount of credit to the writers. The writing on that show is spectacular. The material that they give us to work with is fantastic, no slouch there.

Q: I can’t wait to see Chris.
Yes, I’ll just give you one word and that’s sexy.

Q: What can you tell me about season 5 and of course, Rosalyn Harris?
She’s a vampire, very old, from Texas but Texas, in the timeline, is not very old. Rosalyn has come from somewhere else but we are just not quite sure where but she has made Texas her home for the past 100 to 200 years. She’s one of those game gals that helped to settle the Old West. She’s very comfortable branding a calf. She knows that pearls can go with anything, so she is always a lady. She can brand a calf in the morning and go to the opera at night. She’s a man’s woman. She’s what we would call a great broad. She’s very funny and very folksy, but if you cross her she will drain you on the spot. As they say with regards to Texas hair, big is just a place to start. Rosalyn has hair high enough to interfere with air traffic control.

Q: I am looking forward to seeing that.
She’s a lot of fun. I’m not wearing a wig so somehow they were able to get my short bob up into the heavens.

Q: How did she become an Authority Council Member?
She was made an Authority Council Member by the Guardian, Chris Meloni’s character (Roman). This happened centuries ago so what their relationship was like, we don’t know yet. If the Authority has been around 2000 years then she has been a member for 1900 years. As long as the Authority has been around she’s pretty much been a part of it.

Q: What characters are we going to be seeing her with the most?
All of my other Authority members as it stands now like Christopher Heyerdahl (as Dieter Braun), Peter Mensah (as Kibwe), and Chris Meloni. There are some huge, huge political battles being fought in the vampire world this season. There are a lot of heavy duty and very important council meetings.

Q: I hope you filmed some scenes with Alexander Skarsgård because he is my favorite.
Well, I have worked--and I can tell you that--I have worked with Alexander and Stephen and I count myself as pretty much the luckiest gal on the face of this Earth because… (expressed with a sultry voice) yes, I have worked with them (laughing).


Comment by interviewer: (Laughing) Sookie is an idiot for not choosing Eric.

Q: I would love to get your take on your character’s makeup, fashion, mannerisms, and those little details that really bring her together for you.
Rosalyn is what you would call a great broad and at all times a lady. Tease the hair until it reaches God, slap a set of pearls on and you are good to go because everything else will fall into line. She is always impeccably dressed. If you cross her she will stake you, she will snap your neck as soon as look at you. Do not cross Rosalyn Harris. For me, Rosalyn’s key trait is her wonderful sense of humor. I feel that she wants to mainstream because she understands the importance of mainstreaming but she never loses that wonderful sense of humor that has enabled her to survive all these centuries.

True Blood Spoiler: New 'Strong and Cocky' Vamp Introduced in Season 5

VampLvr1First of all, in case you haven't heard, True Blood's new season starts on June 10, so mark it on your Alexander Skarsgård-themed calendars. As for what to expect, we've met all different kinds of vampires in four seasons of True Blood, but in the new season T.B. will introduce us to a type of vamp we've never met before. We can't reveal more than that, but we can tell you that this character is described as strong and cocky, and they'll be around for more than one episode.

Could this be the unknown character that Chris Meloni will portray? I think they just enjoy making us nuts before the season premiere.

Wetpaint Entertainment spoke to star Janina Gavankar(Luna) at the NewNowNext Awards on April 5, she couldn't say much, but did tease a bit of what we can expect from Season 5!

True Blood Season 5 Spoilers - True Blood Q: We are HUGE True Blood fans; please give us something to go on until it returns!
Well we have an air date, June 10, that’s when we come back. We are on episode 8 right now.


Q. What’s happening?
Ha, you know I can’t tell you anything! Things are really, really complicated for Sam and I right now and my daughter. As for the vampires, this is the year of a history lesson. You’re going to learn a lot about the vampires this year.

Q. Each new season they bring in a new mythical creature, last season it was a witch, what is it this season?
I don’t think they’re really doing that this year. I really think that we’re going back to teach people about where it all came from. Kind of. That’s not true — there is something, there is a big bad something this year! There’s a big, bad something this year!

Q. Will you and Sam stay together?
I hope they stay together, I love loving Sam. I love it! I don’t think anybody understands you like another shifter so you know finding somebody who understands what you’ve been through is very hard.

True Blood Spoiler: Howdy? Rosalyn Harris Your Texan Vampire Authority on True Blood's Season 5

True Blood Season 5 Spoilers - True BloodAfter getting the role, and having never seen True Blood, Carolyn Hennesy sat down and watched all 48 episodes in a mere 10 days, and had a lot to say about her character, Rosalyn Harris. …this is a long interview. I usually cut out a lot but there’s a lot of good info on what to expect on Vampire Authority Rosalyn Harris in Season 5 of True Blood.

Q. You play a new character this season, Rosalyn Harris, who is part of the Vampire Authority. Tell me about her.
It’s funny because in the script, she is always referred to as “Rosalyn Harris.” I feel like it’s “Miss Barbara Stanwick” or something. The two names are one name.

Q. Is that a show of respect? Are you higher up in the Vampire Authority?
I am not. The Authority was started by one particular member. I am not the oldest member of the authority but I was there shortly after it started. Very shortly. There are, chronologically, older members of the Authority. But it’s [all relative]. It’s like if the Authority is 2,000 years old, Rosalyn has maybe been on for 1,950 years. In the grand scheme of things all the Authority members - it used to be eight with Nan Flanagan, but she’s gone so it is seven - are the most powerful vampires on the planet.

Q. The description I have here says that Rosalyn has “hair high enough to interfere with air traffic.”
Well, where Rosalyn comes from is still something of a mystery. I’ve kind of solved it myself, with the character background I have created. Rosalyn is from Texas - for the last 500 years or so. Where she comes from before that is Prague, or someplace overseas. But she loves Texas. She is one of those women who helped tame the Wild West. She loves everything about Texas, that it’s a man’s world and she is a hell of a woman in it. In Texas, as they say with regard to everything, but especially to hair, “big is just the place to start.” So Rosalyn embraces everything Lone Star. When you think of Rosalyn, you need to think of Anne Richards and Mae West and Joan Crawford in Johnny Guitar. She is a broad and a half. She’s a great dame. Pearls go with everything, and your hair can never be too high. And she will kill you on the spot!

Q. How much of Rosalyn’s background did you get to create for yourself?
I got three things: that she is from Texas; that she has hair high enough to interfere with air traffic; and she has a “home-spun wisdom.” So she’ll come up with the quip that relates to gelding a horse, or say, “Well, when I was on the ranch….” But her instincts are almost always right. Once she makes up her mind, and she knows she is right - and it takes a lot to change Rosalyn’s mind. But it can be done.

Q. Does Rosalyn have any romantic entanglements this season?
Sex and blood are really the two things that True Blood is all about. Well, we are in the middle of this very dire [Vampire Authority] situation. So far, there have been no romantic entanglements for Rosalyn. I will say that she has a secret crush, but I think that is all I can say. She has a secret crush that I don’t even think the writers know about! [Laughs.]

Q. Well, like you said, when you are working with Alex and Stephen, how can you not?
Right! But yeah, she has a secret crush, which I think is highly unusual for a vampire. Vampires can act on anything, but Rosalyn is playing this one close to the vest.

Q. Is Rosalyn for assimilation?
Very much so. She understands the wisdom of it. In the time that Rosalyn has been alive, we have put a man on the moon; we have conquered oceans; we have this synthetic blood. What else can [humans] do that can be of benefit to vampire-kind? That is what really interests Rosalyn, and the only way vampires can reap the benefits of these discoveries is if they act in concert with human beings.

Q. Would you consider Rosalyn a “good guy” or a “bad guy?”
A good guy. A very good guy. Of course, if you cross her, she will snap your neck. As far as I am concerned, Rosalyn loves humans. She loves them for what they may be able to do for vampires.

Q. I know you can’t say much about the season as a whole, but is there a general direction this season is going in?
Well, with only my scenes, it would be that there is a real push for mainstreaming. A real push. And then what ultimately results from that tremendous push. That’s really all I can say.

Q. It sounds almost like this season is getting a little more political.
Very much so. That is a great way to put it. Does it reflect on [the country’s] own political situation? Possibly. It is interesting that we have the Presidential election coming up in November, and the show is premiering in June and running for three months - right into the heart of election season.

Q. True Blood has always been socially aware.
Yes. Issues of immigration, issues of acceptance, issues of… not quite racism, but kind of, with vampires-versus-humans and where do you stand - and why do you stand wherever that is? Metaphors galore!

Q. Are you done shooting for the season?
No. We’re only half-way. We started in late December / January. How many episodes are you in? So far I am in seven.

Melanie Camp was interviewed about her role on True Blood, and this is what she said about her role.

“A show like True Blood only casts the best of the best so I was really surprised to even get an audition, let alone land the role,” she said. “Everyone on the show goes to great lengths to make you feel at ease.” While Camp remained tight-lipped about her role in the HBO series, she revealed her character was part of a “pivotal story.”

Giles Matthey Cast as Claude

E! Online shared the following info about the role below! True Blood Season 5 Spoilers - True Blood
Relative newcomer Giles Matthey is set to recur on True Blood‘s upcoming season in the role of Claude, a very attractive and mysterious young man, HBO confirms to us. And yes ladies, the British actor will be putting that accent to good use when he shows up in Bon Temps. Seems like even vampires can’t resist a sexy accent!

Described as “omni-sexual,” Claude catches the attention and curiosity of Jessica and will first appear in episode three of the new season. But is it a romantic interest that Jessica takes in Claude? That remains to be seen. Oh, and something tells us Claude is going to have the same allergy to shirts that most of True Blood‘s men seem to have. We don’t hate it! Fans of The Good Wife may recognize Matthey from his turn as Dick Anders in a recent episode.

Twilight's Christopher Heyerdahl to Vamp Up True Blood Role

True Blood Season 5 Spoilers - True BloodChristopher Heyerdahl shouldn't work on his tan anytime soon. The veteran actor who played ancient Volturi vampire Marcus in the Twilight movies will continue to fang it up on HBO's True Blood, Deadline reports. He'll play Dieter Braun, one of the five council members of the Vampire Authority, the highest-ranking governing authority over all vampires. Braun appears relatively mild-mannered, but revels in innovative torture techniques while interrogating prisoners.

SVU alum Chris Meloni joins the cast of True Blood It was thought that Law & Order: SVU's Christopher Meloni would be playing Dieter since he was previously cast as "an ancient, powerful vampire who holds the fate of Bill [Stephen Moyer] and Eric [Alexander Skarsgard] in his hands," but it seems that his role is still under wraps.

It'll be interesting to keep an eye out for casting of the other council members including Nora, African vampire Kibwe, big-haired Texan vamp Rosalyn Harris and 9-year-old cigarette-smoking Alexander. Heyerdahl is comfortable play otherworldly roles. Besides his vampire cred, he's also known as Bigfoot on Sanctuary and the demon Alastair on Supernatural. On the human side, he plays The Swede on AMC's Hell on Wheels.

Getting new season spoilers from the cast of True Blood is harder than dislodging a bull's horn from your sternum. Right Maryann???

"If you figured we were controversial already, this is going to blow it off the hinges,'' he told Sydney's Daily Telegraph. "It's going to touch on a lot of fiery topics.''And while that spoiler is skimpier than Sookie's skirts, with the cast headed back to work on New Year's Day, you can be sure this is just the start of the season five trickles.True Blood is expected to return to HBO in June 2012.

True Blood spoiler: Carolyn Hennesy Cast as "Vampire With Texas Twang"

The True Blood cast should get ready to have their scenes stolen, because it looks like Carolyn Hennesy is joining their ranks in season 5! The redhead actress—who is best known as brassy lawyer Diane Miller on General Hospital and provocative Barb on Cougar Town—tweeted a clue that she'll be appearing on the HBO show this season: "Guess who's gonna be a fab new vampire with a Texas twang on True Blood? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?"

Hennesy brings sass and spark to every role she plays, even when she's nearly unrecognizable, like on Once Upon a Time recently as Jiminy Cricket's evil mother Myrna. Hennesy could be playing Rosalyn Harris, the "40 to 60-year-old member of the Authority from Texas with “hair high enough to interfere with air traffic."

New Season 5 Series Regular

Salome (Valentina Cervi)"Cervi is an Italian actress primarily known for her starring role in the film Artemisia and the recent BBC detective miniseries, Zen. Cervi also appeared in War and Peace, Miracle at St. Anna and an upcoming adaptation of Jane Eyre."

Here was the original casting call:
SALOME 20 to 40. THE Salome from the Bible. Dark haired with dark features, exotic looking, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and /or African. An ancient vampire who is a world class seductress and fiercely intelligent. She also has quite a lot of madness in her. She is the most powerful person in every way yet capable of hiding this power when it serves her purposes. Series Regular. Possible nudity.

Even with the casting call indicating she is THE Salome, ONTD declared: "It's unknown if the vampire Salome is the same Salome that appeared in the Bible as one of the most infamous women in the New Testament thanks to her powers of seduction and her chronicled role in the death of John the Baptist. But if Salome is as ancient as the report claims, a connection certainly seems likely."

Dale Dickey (Marcus' mom: Annie Bozeman)

Dale Dickey (Marcus Bozeman's mom)Last season on True Blood, Sam Merlotte and Alcide, the lovable wolfman, got into a scuffle with the leader of a local werewolf pack, a scuffle which ended in the leader, Marcus, facing a brutal demise. Apparently, that act is going to have some repercussions.

You may not know the name, but we're pretty sure you'll recognize the face. Dale Dickey, winner of the 2011 Independent Spirit Award - Best Supporting Female for Winter's Bone, has joined the cast of HBO's "True Blood" as the mother of dearly departed werewolf packmaster Marcus Bozeman (played by Dan Buran). She is most recognizable as Earl's mom on My Name is Earl, but has held roles in genre flicks like Super 8, Trailer Park of Terror, and A Perfect Getaway.


Per TVLine Dickey's character will be known as Annie, who is also a werewolf. Powerful and respected within the pack due to her late son’s position, she's determined to perform a particular ritual. We're assuming said ritual might involve Alcide (Joe Manganiello), the person responsible for Marcus' death, but only time will tell.

True Blood spoiler: From Kristin Bauer

The first script of Season 5 has been sent out to the True Blood cast and crew, and we’re dying to read it! Sadly, our copies must have been lost in the mail, so we’ll have to make due with Kristin Bauer’s evasive breakdown.

“After I read it twice, I noticed the title ["Turn! Turn! Turn!"] and thought, ‘Oh my God, that’s perfect!’” Kristin tells Hollywood Life.
“It’s so brilliant how each storyline, from where it left off at the end of last year, hits a major fork in the road that we’re launched into for the first episode of the new season. It’s very exciting.”

Kristin fangs are sealed when it comes to giving away details about possible changes in store for Pam, but she teases, “The reason I read it twice was that it left me wanting more so badly, and my only option was to read it again. These writers are really amazing.”

Hmmm, we’re going to assume that Bill and Eric have an affair to remember before someone tells us otherwise. Live in hope.

True Blood spoiler: Season 5 premiere casting calls

Filming on True Blood season 5 gets underway shortly, and we have the scoop on new characters being cast for the season premiere, titled “Turn! Turn! Turn!” Ready?

The werewolf community is in an uproar following Marcus’ death in the season 4 finale. The show is casting Rikki, a “dirty-beautiful werewolf” in her mid-20s who wants to know what happened to Marcus. She’s a recurring character, so it sounds like she could cause trouble for Sam and Alcide.

Speaking of Alcide, are we about to meet Herveaux Senior? True Blood's casting J.D., a “particularly large Marine-type” werewolf in his 50s, for a recurring role. He refuses to acknowledge the new pack leader, which sounds awfully similar to a certain storyline in book 5.

A confirmed parental unit is Annie, Marcus’ mother, who shows up to find out what happened to her son. She’s a powerful, respected werewolf within the pack and is determined to perform a particular ritual. Meanwhile, it sounds like Sam might be in trouble. A pair of weres, Danielle and Kenneth, are being cast in connection with a prisoner who is being interrogated… about the death of Marcus? Or something else?

We’ll meet Holly’s two teenage sons, Rocky, who thinks his Mom is an idiot (as teenagers do), and Wade, who still gives her the benefit of the doubt.

Jason and Jessica are still hot and heavy, attending a frat party together where they meet Cammy, who’s totally into Jason, and Zander who has the hots for Jessica. It’s not all gravy for the pair, though. The show is casting Buddy, a friend of Hoyt’s who works on the Renard Parish road crew and mocks Jason.

In addition to Nora, the Authority double-agent (and sired sister of Eric), we’ll meet Hayes, a large vampire of Eastern European descent who the Authority send to deliver the True Death to “some other vampires.” Thinking back to why Nan visited Bon Temps last, are those “other vampires” Bill & Eric? In possibly related casting, the show is looking for a woman to play Cat, a no-nonsense vampire in her 40s who works with the vampire underground railroad. Who is she helping get out of Bon Temps? Or is she helping someone get into Bon Temps?

And finally, we’ll be flashing back to when Sookie was 12 and being bullied by a couple of boys in gym class. Via her telepathy, she reveals something private about one of them, Donnie, which both confuses and pisses him off.

Sounds like a bunch of stuff this year will be happening.

True Blood spoiler: Episode 501's title is "Turn! Turn! Turn!"

True Blood fans have been lamenting the lack of new True Blood episodes to watch! Never fear the new season will start filming next month and the first episode title has been revealed! According to SpoilerTV the first episode for season 5 will be titled “Turn! Turn! Turn!”

The lyrics for this title are very interesting. Just what will it mean? I have a feeling it will have something to do with one of the new characters for season 5 (mentioned in a casting call). The character of Salome performed the infamous “dance of the 7 veils” for King Herod. Could this be what is mentioned in the lyrics? Another possibility might also be if there were a human being “turned” into a vampire.

A
n interesting note is that the song lyrics are based on the Book of Ecclesiastes from the Bible. Music was composed by Pete Seeger in 1959. The Limeliters (1962) recorded the song a few months before composer Pete Seeger (1962) recorded his own version. Both The Byrds (1965) and Judy Collins (1963) later covered the song.

"To Everything (Turn! Turn! Turn!)"
Song Lyrics:

To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn)
There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn)
And a time to every purpose, under Heaven
A time to be born, a time to die
A time to plant, a time to reap
A time to kill, a time to heal
A time to laugh, a time to weep.

To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn)
There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn)
And a time to every purpose, under Heaven
A time to build up,a time to break down
A time to dance, a time to mourn
A time to cast away stones,
A time to gather stones together.
To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn)
There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn)
And a time to every purpose, under Heaven
A time of love, a time of hate
A time of war, a time of peace
A time you may embrace, a time to refrain from embracing.


To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn)
There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn)
And a time to every purpose, under Heaven
A time to gain, a time to lose
A time to rend, a time to sew
A time for love, a time for hate
A time for peace, I swear it’s not too late.

So what do you think we might see for the premiere episode for season 5?

This was confirmed by EW (see below).

'True Blood' casting call: A biblical new role... and a very old friend for Eric -- EXCLUSIVE

Creator Alan Ball and his team of scribes have put out a casting call for someone to play Nora, a beautiful and intelligent 25-to-35 something who plays a double agent within the Vampire Authority. What’s even better than that? She’s got a big history with Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) because she’s a progeny of Godric. Nora will be a series regular role that may (or may not) involve a little nudity. (It IS True Blood, after all).

Meanwhile, Co-Executive Producer Raelle Tucker told EW that they’ll include a “very significant, strong, mysterious woman at the center of one of our main stories next year… a very familiar and compelling character. It may be someone you’ve heard of before.” Especially if you’ve read the Bible: The True Blood team also put out the call for someone to play Salome, as in THE Salome, daughter of Herodias, from the good book. She’s a powerful ancient vampire (hmm, don’t remember that part from the New Testament) and a world-class seductress who’s also a little mad. So she’ll fit right into Bon Temps.

WetPaint Entertainment: Janina Gavankar

Janina Gavankar chatted to Wetpaint Entertainment while attending this week’s Paley Center for Media event “An Evening with FX’sThe League” (which Janina also stars in). She discussed the role of shape-shifters in the upcoming season 5 and teased a bit on the new creature/freak/villain that will terrorize Bon Temps citizens next year. “The shape-shifters are coming into their own a lot more, which makes me very happy,” “Obviously the wolves are going to be pissed off with us and I have a half-werewolf daughter.” Every new season seems to bring another terrifying or tantalizing new creature and the upcoming one won’t disappoint, she revealed. “I think I know what new creature is going to be introduced next season, I can’t tell you but I know you’ll love it,” she teased. “It’s most definitely frightening!”

True Blood spoiler:
'True Blood' scoop: Who's coming to Bon Temps in season 5?

Since the citizens of Bon Temps dropped like flies (RIP Jesus, Marnie, Nan, and possibly Tara) on True Blood‘s surprising finale, season 5 will introduce fresh meat and showcase some familiar faces. “There will be a very significant, strong, mysterious woman at the center of one of our main stories next year,” says co-executive producer Raelle Tucker. “That will be a very familiar and compelling character. It may be someone you’ve heard of before.” We will also once again visit the fairy world touched upon at the beginning of season 4. Says Tucker, “Season 5 will explore more fairies, new fairies, fairies in a way you haven’t really seen fairies. We will all, as well as Sookie, come to understand fairies more than in previous seasons.”

Scott Foley’s Patrick, who we met in the finale, will bring trouble to Terry (Todd Lowe) and Arlene (Carrie Preston). Says Tucker, “His arc has to do with Terry’s past coming back to haunt Bon Temps and Arlene and their life they’re trying to set up together.” The identity of the wolf seen growling at Sam (Sam Trammell) in the final moments will be revealed — and, according to Tucker, is “someone you have never met before.” Tucker, who wrote the season finale, won’t confirm, though, if said werewolf is Alcide’s (Joe Manganiello) father, Jackson, who is featured in book 5 of Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse novels. The unearthed King of Mississippi, Russell Edgington (Denis O’Hare), will be back. “Russell is not dead,” says Tucker. “It’s safe to assume the king of Mississippi is not gone for good.” Also look for former Fellowship of the Sun leader — and now vampire — Steve Newlin (Michael McMillian). Teases Tucker, “I will say that Steve’s reason for returning to Jason is not at all what you expect.”
