Alan Ball is making sure to go out with a bang on ‘True Blood’ Season 5 as he’s brought back vampire king Russell and Jason Stackhouse is getting some major interest from a very proud ‘gay American vampire‘. Yup, it’s that time of year again.
This new season of ‘True Blood’ is promising to be a blast as there’s some great new characters with the Vampire Authority and Christopher Meloni, but also some returns from the dead (or at least the dead returning from the dead) as everyone’s favorite king Russell Edgington (Denis O’Hare) returns to wreak havoc. The latest promo clip shows this along with all the splintering fractions in the ‘True Blood’ world. One big mystery will be who brought Russell back, along with will Tara (Rutina Wesley) be like ‘Pet Semetary‘ when Sookie brings her back? These characters keeps as much drama going as ‘The Real Housewives Of Atlanta‘ do!
Everyone’s favorite hottest prison inmate Christopher Meloni is the ‘Guardian’ of the Vampire Authority Roman, who is going after vampires that oppose being mainstreamed. After all these seasons of hearing about the Authority, they’ll finally be making an appearance and there’ll be a nine-year old vampire on the scene too who’s quite the tempestuous one (Jacob Hopkins). (We’ll be doing an interview with the young blood sucker soon too.) Then you’ve got Bill (Steven Moyer) and Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) on their own crusade and Sookie (Anna Paquin) will be sulking it looks like after turning down all those southern hot men while brother Jason gets some major attention from a newly out and proud gay American vampire. That was pretty obvious when the first images started hitting . Jessica is always feeling her wild side as she lets loose after being tied down with her human boyfriend last season.
I think by now Alan Ball realizes that ‘True Blood’ has a tendency to start out blazing and then get mired with so many characters storylines so having Eric and Bill team up against the Authority could streamline things and keep the action, sex, violence and most important, audience attention, going at full steam all season. I only wish Ryan Murphy could learn this lesson, but…
