The final season of True Blood is upon us, premiering on June 23, 2014, and we’ve got all the spoilers we could find. Check out all the details, video clips, and hints at season 7 below.
– Movie Pilot gives some info on Eric and Jason’s steamy moments writing:
Prepare yourselves for a very steamy Season 7 scene between Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) and Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten)!
Reportedly it all happens in Episode 2:
This same-sex hookup, between two non-gay characters, goes down in Episode 2 of the show’s final season — and trust me, it was worth the wait. I can’t say much more, but in case you’re wondering, this particular “love” scene is accompanied by strings.
– Additional news about Episode 2 was revealed in the IB Times:
According to the casting sheet of “True Blood” Season 7 Episode 2, which is titled “I Found You,” a beautiful French woman in her 20s will be introduced as a potential love interest to Eric. She is called Sylvie and her role “requires full frontal nudity excluding genitalia.”
– Executive producer Brian Buckner reveals to Screen Rant that Eric is back. He also opens up about Warlow’s death:
With Nora gone, and having sought vengeance for her death, he found that the pain was still there and he doesn’t want to feel it again. So he retreated and returned home. That’s as much as the audience is meant to know. For now.
Buckner then adds:
Nobody knew the rule that if Warlow died, the blood that he gave to you would lose its efficacy. It was a surprise to all the vampires who realized that they just lost their ability to walk in the sun, but Eric was the only one in a timezone where it was light out … So if people called it an anticlimax, that Warlow’s death came and went without consequence, no, the Eric thing is the consequence of Warlow’s death.
– The Hep-V afflicted, “zombie vampires” are going to be a big part of the final season and executive producer Buckner describes them as:
They’re weaker and driven by a need to eat in a way that the vampires that we’ve come to know are not. They have to drink human blood in larger quantities and more frequently than before … They’re far more organized and haven’t lost their mental capacity.
– TV Line asked Stephen Moyer about if he thinks Bill and Sookie will end up together in the final season. Moyer replied:
I don’t know whether they can be, given everything that’s happened between them. What Bill did was open up something inside her that she had never had before. He was the key to a new world for her. And maybe that’s all he was supposed to be — a window into that world … I think a bunch of people would be happy if that was the story and a bunch of people would be pissed off if that was the story. I don’t read that s–t, so I don’t care, ultimately. All I want to do is do the show and have fun doing it.
– Entertainment Weekly describes the season 7 premiere with some big news:
Hep-V-infected vampires are pulling bodies out of cars, feasting on flesh, and kidnapping people from Bellefleur’s. Luckily, they’re also killing superfluous plotlines. A major player is dead before the opening credits even roll.
What else does Entertainment Weekly reveal?
Humans we’ve never seen before are planning an armed revolt against the vampires. H-vamps are holding people captive in the basement of Fangtasia. Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) is hanging out in Morocco, playing Russian roulette with the locals. Sookie even discovers a whole other town that’s been ransacked by the H-vamps. Plus, Jessica’s (Deborah Ann Woll) boyfriend, James, isn’t himself: Nathan Parsons has replaced the original actor, Luke Grimes.
In addition, EW writes:
There’s a clever twist involving Eric that could set up an exciting arc for Sookie. Whether he is dead-dead or just undead — we won’t spoil that here — he will definitely spark some suspense this season.
– Tara Buck, who plays Ginger, will have a prominent role in the final 10 episodes.
– For the finale, executive producer Buckner has stated that he hopes to give fans what they want and leave them satisfied.
– When discussing the finale, Buckner gives a general statement:
As the person tasked with bringing this thing home, I’m very conscious of bringing it back to a center. I think we had a lot of wild sex. We really let go of convention, but I think people will really sort of feel like this was a love story at the end of the day.
