As I was saying in the prior spec. thread, your list of car registration expiration dates makes it pretty clear the missing year occurred between seasons 1 and 2. It’s looking more and more like the ‘time jump’ will be more like a realignment or readjustment in Sookie’s sense of time. We’ll just have to wait for all the evidence to come in s4 to figure out how and why this happens, but so far it does seem like Bill is the one with a motive to make her think she’s lost time recently rather than earlier.
Could the loss of time in ’09 be considered an experiment by Bill to find out how long it can be sustained? I’m unsure of his motive for that length of time.
2009 is definitely notable for its absense. Also, updating tags to 2010 in a series that’s supposed to still be 2008 mekes no sense. I’m VERY curious to see the s4 tags.
Tara’s comment about MA & Eggs to Laff in his car after he saves her strikes me as more significant now that you mention ’09 missing.
Paraphrasing: That whole time I was a zombie. I thought I had found someone who loved me.
I got a kick out of Pam and Nan in some of those caps. Nan with the head phones and Pam in her little Chanel suit with a microphone on the suit.
Is Nan interrogating someone? Is Pam doing a promo for mainstreaming?
I’m not seeing Nan or Pam’s suit. What am I missing?
The Vault has some caps as well as skarsgardfans (this past week)
That would be
The Season 4 Photos
Interesting! Pam is showing her true colors through her wardrobe, but I’m sure her message will be completely at odds with her true nature. LOL!
I think those are from Nan directing the ‘no hate’ PSA’s?
Oh right. Forgot about the PSA’s
Maybe that’s why Pam looks like she sucking a lemon. lol
Hee hee. I love it when Pam is not amused. Actually, I also love it when she IS amused. Oh hell, I just love her no matter what she’s doing.
I know. How fabulous is she crawling on Sookie’s rug?
I can’t help but think that scene somehow goes with the one of Eric saying he wants everything from Sookie.
I can’t figure out what the hell is going on with the rug crawling but I agree on her fabulosity.
WOW. Thank you very much.
I searched on web for 2 days and could not find an answer.
If I understand this is valid for 1 year? (whether for a Louisiana State-MVI Motor Vehicle Inspection or registration)
Right. They are renewed annually.
F*ck! Lady Manson switched out all their screencaps for Hi-rez, so all their old URLs are invalid now. Sorry about all those dead links in my previous post.
Oh no! That sucks donkey balls.
For both of us. We’ve posted a ton of those links.
There is no telling how many I’ve posted! I feel no desire to go back and correct them either. It’s seriously going to screw with our archives if we don’t though.
Lady Manson is working. It’s Daydreaming/Black Celebration that isn’t. They are the ones who went Hi-rez.
Shit! Nearly ALL of my early posts contained DD links. (well, mostly uploaded images. Hopefully those aren’t affected.)
i like the Tree of knowlege idea/ “ambrosia”.. it seems like AB is going down this path with Faeland..
i’m wondering how much of DR will AB play with??
since Claudine was thanking everyone ( The Fae are stronger togather) that is what Claude & Dermot told Sookie in DR..
anyway , so in s4 Eric is NOW telling Sookie she is his..LOL !! “Vampires wrote the book on possessive” Sookie say’s in the books…
“V” can heal & it can be a mind altering drug & a Aphrdisiac.. the Fae blood is an Aphrodisiac Only to the Supe Community.. Humans arent effected by Sookie’s scent or blood.. plus regular humans think Sookie’s Telepathy is weird so they arent interested…
i cant wait to find out why Queen Mab is pissed off?? i still wonder if the Pure Fae brought all the Hybirds there to close the portal because a Vampire intruded on one of the portals??
i think it’s safe to assume that the picture that has Claudine with a bruise on her forehead is not in epi 1/s4.. so Claudine must have had a fight with a vamp later ?? or something is up??
it also looks like AB is mixing up Mythology.. i hope the s3 DVD explains how Billy knew Claudine’s name?? or s4 will explain it.. maybe Sookie should have bit into the fruit so she could start asking more questions??
i think it’s safe to assume that the picture that has Claudine with a bruise on her forehead is not in epi 1/s4.. so Claudine must have had a fight with a vamp later ?? or something is up??
A fight does break out in faeland with Sookie using the glow hand again. Maybe that’s when Claudine gets conked on the head.
oh, i didnt see the fight in Faeland..LOL !
okay so a fight in Faeland, hummm… yea Maybe Claudine get’s hit there?? but i thought in the picture’s of Claudine & her bruise on the head looked like it was in a dark place ( or dark background)??
have we ever seen Faeland Dark?? i dont recall we have, Faeland is always summery & bright .. IDK, if Faeland even changes seasons if it is suppose to represent some sort of heaven…
The fight screencaps are here.
If Claudine gets hurt at this point, she could still be bruised when she returns Sookie home.
Thanks Makes me wonder why a fight is breaking out in Faeland?? did Billy show up agian?? ROTFL !!
but i agree, Claudine could still have the bruise on her head later..
The photo of Claudine with a buise on her head looks like the scene in the cemetery when she reached out her hand to Sookie.
it does look like that could be the same Claudine picking up from s3 Charm
maybe Claudine & Billy had a real fight that we arent privy to yet?? which will help with the name thing.. i just hope AB doesnt do something corny like Claudine telling Billy her name…**shake head**
maybe epi 1/ s4 will pick up from B/QSA fight.. & also go into the Claudine & Billy stuff before they left to Faeland.. maybe epi 1/s4 is doing alot of backtracking before the 1 yr. jump occur’s.. that would be awsome .. & help fill in alot of gaps..
Nah. It was the other hand I think and there was no bruising on in the last S3 shot.
The same thing happened with Sookie in the promos from last year. We saw her holding out the opposite hand from the one she held out in the actual episode. This happens a lot between promos and eps.
Not that I don’t think this snip of her is from an ep in season 4. It’s just interesting that Claudine is in the same pose as she was in the finale, and in the dark.
This site put some of the caps in order of episodes.
I don’t see the bruising in this cap. Perhaps the earlier one was bad quality? In any case, Claudine looks worried.
AB said alot of stuff “After The episodes” in s3..
in fact what was AB’s Thank You message??
he said something about us finding out where Sookie went & what happens to the people who go there ( Billy walking on water in the portal) & what happens to ppl who love Sookie”.. i have to re-watch the video agian..
but i remember him saying something about the Fae in s3 Channeling Nature or energy or something…
Maybe the bruise on Claudine occur’s later on ..??
Enlarged it is there as well although more shaded than a cap elsewhere, I think skarsgadfans.
For some reason this cap made me jump to the conclusion that AE will happen as speculated by you and Renee in ep. 4 rather than 2.
AE in bloody Henley was from ep.10 and I think that would be an awfully long arc from ep. 2. Open to revision if more spoilers show different.
well Sookie still dated Billy all the way till the very end of s3.. the MA plot lasted all the way till the very end of s2 & Rene’s serial killer plot lasted all the way till the very end of s1..
why would AE not last till epi 12 & then AB plans to have the audience wonder if Eric remember’s “anything” that occured while he had amnesia??
Billy got kindnaped in s2 fianle & in s3 that plot lasted till mid season of s3…
i think Eric catches amnesia in epi 2 , but it will be at the end of the epi, or near the end of the epi..
You certainly have a point. Maybe just wish list stuff on my part.
There is still the problem of those effed up clapboards. AE is shown in scene 39, but in the very next scene, 40, he’s real Eric speaking to Bill about the witches. And we STILL don’t have a title for ep 2, which feels like a clue to me.
Lol, we still don’t have a title for ep 4.
i know what you mean Charm.. right now i’m just crossing my finger’s waiting for the epi title to come out..
maybe AB hasent released it yet because it deals with AE getting cursed???
if Eric get’s cursed torwards the end of epi 2 then going into epi 3 Sookie finds him wandering BT?? & we go from there i guess..
Here is a thought.. if Eric’s curse get’s lifted before epi 12 That means the witch war took place already i guess?? if this is suppose to be epi 10/s4 then epi 11 & 12 are about what?? we are done with the 2 major plots in s4 (Amnesia Eric & the witch war)..
one of the Biggest Mysteries/Clues in DTTW was about what Eric remembered about that time he spent with Sookie..
something has to occur in s4 that carries Eric’s plot forward to s5..
something has to occur in s4 that carries Eric’s plot forward to s5.
The extras for the WW were called up for ep 7 and 8 or 8 and 9. I don’t recall.
It looks to me like the end of the season might focus on vampire politics, which could lead into Rhodes next season if AB skips Bk 5 and 6.
that would be interesting.. but i think AB is doing the Pack Master contest that occured in book 5
some of our posts are being posted way somewhere else…
Sorry, guys. I don’t know what’s going on with all the misplaced posts.
Oh, yeah. That will definitely be one of the 2,349 story lines. I was focusing on the vampire stuff.
yea vampire politics will be AB’s focus point i think on TB.. with the vampire politics it carries Billy along & Eric..
That clapboard issue makes my eyes glaze over much the same way the time-line does. I guess we just have to wait and see. Not too much longer.
Lol, I know what you mean. I had to google to figure it out myself.
The clapperboards tell us both AE and Real Eric speaking with Bill about the witches occurs in ep 2. (supposedly) The problem is, AE is scene 39 and Real Eric is scene 40. The scene numbers on the clapperboards are important because even though the scenes might be filmed out of sequence, the editor needs to know the correct sequence in which to place the scenes in the finished print. It’s impossible to believe Real Eric is in the very next scene after we see AE stumbling down the road.
I think I got it. It’s in the editing. How the heck do they keep it all straight?
Exactly, the clapperboards are how they keep it all straight. Without the system of scene numbering on the boards, a director or somebody would have to hold the editors hand throughout the entire editing process. With the boards, the editor has a built in system telling him exactly where to place which scene.
well we vcant forget that AB did say he likes to fuck with us.. so it’s really hard to say what is really going to happen till we see it..
AB admitted last yr. that he likes to throw the bookies off & he makes up spoiler’s.. All the bookies are expecting AE in s4..
AE IS coming in season 4. But there has to be a purpose in deliberately throwing us off exactly what ep AE happens. What that purpose is, I have no idea.
Plain old fucktardness. Keep them coming back for more.
Plain old fucktardness.
plus it looks like Sookie has a portal on her proberty as well?? that damn tree??
but yea, AB totaly likes to fuck with us.. & sometimes it’s just a shake head moment because he doesnt want us bookies to know every angle he is going with his version of the story..
i mean we bookies never visited Faeland in the books anyway.. so i know i didnt have a clue where AB was going with this entire plot.. i think it’s corny, but i think the end result will be sort of the same that CH did.. Sookie’s Telepathy didnt come from being a Hybird Fae.. it came from Mr. C ( in the books)..
on TB Sookie’s Hand Glo doesnt come from being a Hybird, therefore she remains 1/8 on TB still & she borrows Claudines gift when Claudine is channeling through Sookie are when she is simply around & we dont know it..
i kinda like the fact that “V” isnt bringing out someones inner talents..
The demons are part of the fairies race. There are sky fairies, water fairies, elves, angles, and demons. According to CH world. Mr. C is part of the fairy race but different culture.
Related to fairies, but no the same. Mr. C is telepathic. CH’s fairies aren’t.
yea since AB made Sookie’s Telepathy come from the Pure Fae & her Hand glow doesnt?? do you think he is making Sookie more then the 1/8 Fae that she was in the books??
it appears that she is still 1/8 Fae same as Jason .. even though Jason becomes a Hybird Panther in the books as an added addition..
Why do you think her hand-glow power doesn’t come from being Fae? AB said the Fae are deeply connected to nature and Sookie’s hand power comes from ‘channeling nature’.
okay i couldnt remember what AB said in that message word for word..
but from what Anna posted about the s3 DVD it sounds like Claudine is channeling through Sookie to use that Hand glo?? or maybe i misunderstood ?? clarity please?? i dont have my s3 DVD yet so i’m going off what was posted this far..
The DVD says Claudine helped Sookie three times: with the chain in 1.01 and the two times she used her hand.
Right, so Sookie used her hand glo in s2 during the MA stuff.. Sookie used her hand glo in s3 at Alcides apartment & she used it agian in the s3 situation on Russell..
Plus the number 3 is in full effect AGIAN
So she’s channeling Claudine, and not nature? Way to contradict yourself there AB.
Maybe Claudine represents “Nature”?? i mean Sookie isnt a Pure Fae so maybe the Hybirds can only channel through that way?? or Maybe since Claudine is really related tpo Sookie in the first place it runs deeper?? i mean Claudine is Sookie’s first cousin anyway.. so the blood line would be closer??
i mean we havent seen Hunter or Barry use the Hand Glow .. & from that clip Barry has his own Fairy God Father **giggle**
but maybe Barry isnt in trouble as much as Sookie has been?? or Barry isnt drinking “V” either from what we seen this far.. Barry simply only has the Telepathy…
I suppose you could equate the Fae with ‘mother nature’. But in the promo it looks to me like she’s throwing her hand fire at someone either without anyone’s consent or help–looks like they’re holding her back–OR they’re teaching her how to control and direct the power, in which case how do she control a power that is not hers alone to begin with?
well if it is her’s ( the power) maybe Claudine was channeling Sookie’s aim?? i mean when Sookie did use the power in s2 & in s3 it just sort of came out?? so maybe what AB is really trying to convey is that Claudine helped channel Sookie’s real inner power?? that works as well IMO.. i mean if it is Sookie’s real inner power being a Hybird then she needs to learn how to control & use it at whim.. & maybe through Claudine she was helping Sookie along with that aim??
But Barry & Hunter should have this inner built power as well… & we havent seen either of them use it as of yet, but that doesnt mean they dont have it ya know??
I always assumed the glow hand power was activated by Eric’s powerful old blood. Barry and Hunter haven’t had that advantage. However, the Eric blood theory is moot if the power doesn’t come from Sookie in the first place.
Right any “V” is moot that any power comes from drinking “V”.. if AB is trying to convey that Claudine is the reason Sookie has that Glo power..
Laffy’s power occured after drinking a source of bottled up “V” it appeared.. Laffy in s3 said alot “The Blood Lies” .. we dont even know who’s “V” was in the tubes Laffy was selling..
Hey Anna is that on the s3 DVD???
Like for example :
we know “V” heals humans & Supes.. it didnt bring Sookie back to life when she was in that coma i think the water did that Claudine gave Sookie in the hospital… Bill simply wasnted reconect with Sookie through the blood bond when he gave Sookie more blood in that hospital scene IMO..
Sookie in the books her relatives were sky fairies and her relatives who try to kill her were the water fairies. What CH did saying her post that the demons were part of the fairies race. Each race of the fairies have different powers.
i understand the book version LLE,
& so far AB hasent established the difference between water & sky Fae on TB..
in s3 all the Fae went through a water portal of some kind & Claudine told Sookie the pond is bigger then it looks.. maybe the pond divides up the water & sky Fae??
or maybe the water & Sky fae arent divided at this point yet on the show??
in the books the only reason they became divided was because Niall’s brother wanted to close the portals from the Fae world to the human world..
Maybe that is Queen Mabs role on TB & this starts the war between the Fae…
i decided to read up on Greek Mythology Faries ( Nymphs)
& this is what i found on the topic..
i’m trying to see if this post at the bottom…
so what do you ( Charm & BG) make out of the title in epi 12??
HA ! it worked
How did you get down here! I tried and failed.
Anyway, I like it but it does sound foreboding.
i just pushed the reply button & then posted.. but i think if it is a long post re-post the reply button & it will post where you want ( I THINK).. so far that has been working for me
Who is going to die?????
” Only one child left to carry on.”
Have to mull that one over.
Humm… Tommy?? is my first choice since Sam & Tommy are siblings..
Jessica is already dead & her parents were glamoured so that they dont know or remember she even came by.. Sookie & Jason arent dying out.. Laffy is already an only child & so is Tara that we know of.. Pam isnt dying out in s4..
Or Maybe Debbie dies in epi 12/s4?? this will introduce Sandra P in s5?? hummm, thinking…
i just finished listening to the video you gave for the sone Charm.. i’m not carzy about the song .. it sounds BLAH to me.. but i’m more into rock music anyway so i dont know if my opinion matters **snort**
Try the other version IATM. Blood Sweat and Tears. It was there song originally and they did rock back in the ’70′s. It’s on YouTube.
Okay BG, i’m looking it up now to listen to the song by “Blood Sweat and Tears”…
*** New Casting Call info**** for epi 12/s4
for a Patrick & a Doug character..
Patrick to be in 7 of 12 eps next year?!?
Methinks Terry’s happy home isn’t going to last long.
7 of 13, or so it says. Looks like season 5 will be the last, just as we’ve speculated.
That would be an interesting season to end TB.. Sookie meeting Quinn & the 2 vamps & Sam & Alcide.. that will be a crowed s5 picture with Sookie & all her suiter’s on it.. even if they leave Sam out of the picture.. because he hasent been in one next to Sookie grabing anything as a real suiter..
While TB season 5 might incorporate some of the elements and characters from books 5 and beyond it wouldn’t surprise me if it goes off mainly on it’s own tangent.
Did you ever watch the Tudors?? it only lasted for 4 seasons..
anyway, if AB does spin off on his own story in s5 IDK what to say to that.. it might work or it might just be BLAH ! have alot of folks **scratching heads**
Sam’s story this far typically has little to do with Sookie really.. so if AB plans to place Sammy in the running for Sookie’s affection it seems like he needs to be more of the story that involves Sookie.. like he placed Sammy in s2..
IDK, because Tara is looking at Sam in the poster kinda funny style..
Frankly, I’m just happy they’re going to make it to next year.
yea i’m glad that it is at least going into s5.. s6 will be the Equivalent year that book 13 is relaesed… do you think AB might be trying to end TB before book 13?? or end TB in the same year as the book ends?? or end TB 1 season later after book 13/s6?? i mean a s7 would be cool if AB does Rhodes… & end TB with s7 with a **BANG**
okay i seen the new Promo,, & all i have to say is interesting.. over on http://skarsgardfans.com/home/
they have something about epi 2/s4 up :
“4.03: Episode #39: “If You Love Me, Why Am I Dyin’?”: Sookie makes a deal with Eric, and reconnects with Alcide; Bill punishes an errant vampire and counsels a guilt-ridden Jessica; Jason is cast as a reluctant savior; Tommy eyes a scam and alienates Sam; Marnie flexes her newfound powers; Pam delivers an ultimatum to Lafayette, Tara and Jesus; Eric spoils Sookie’s faerie reunion. (Written by Alan Ball; directed by David Petrarca.) July 10, 12, 13, 14 and 16″
so Pammy is giving folks Ultimatum’s by epi 3 it looks like..
out of all the new promo pictures this week IMO it looks like a dream that Sookie might be having when Eric/ AE bites her?? how is Eric stiping a Fae reunion with Sookie??
I believe we’re going to disagree IATM on who bites her. I agree that it could be a dream she is having, but I think (hope) it’s Bill.
Those edits in the promos are trickey.
Maybe it is Billy?? it just looks like a dream scene from the background to me.. but it could just be that it’s night time?? i mean why is Billy in her house at night time when Sookie is in bed?? that is why i think it’s a dream.. plus the Godric & AE photo has the same backgroung.. AB said that Vamps can dream as well.. so it could be an AE/Eric dream?? but Sookie is doing her famous scream..
Thinking about how tricky AB can be, it would be just like him to throw a stink bomb into the works and it is Eric, in a dream I hope.
Considering what occured in DR i wouldnt put it past AB to pass up on a Eric bite scene .. you know what i mean? plus the fact that Sookie’s trauma consists of Billy draining her 1 year ago & Eric & Russell biting her involuntary in s3 because she was the “Ultimate Vampire Dream” being “vampire crack” & all..**snort**
if it is a dream then it could be either AE’s because Godric is there or Sookie’s?? but i cant think of a reason why Sookie would be seeing or thinking of Godric?? so i’m thinking it might be AE’s hungry dream (maybe Godric is telling him to bite)?? remember AB said we will get a different side of Godric in s4.. this is the Godric that taught Eric is who i suspect to meet in s4..
ooooh, i just had a thought :
would if that is AE watching Sookie sleep the first night at her house after she found him on the road?? & he was having a fantasy of biting her ( with Godric there) & Sookie wakes up doing her famous scream?? since she pretty much must have decided to keep AE since they make a deal with eachother.. i wonder if the deal is getting her house back?? or the $50,000 ??
And bowing to his better nature because she took him in when he was afraid, he doesn’t really bite her?
Excatly, he doesnt really bite her..
unless, this scene Is Eric’s equivalent to Bill in the back of the van? *rolls eyes*
but Sookie still decides to keep AE for something ( either her house or the cash)…
I must admit, it makes me laugh thinking a vampire with amnesia has a better nature when it comes to dining on a human.
HA ! IDK if it’s a “better Nature”.. Sookie screams at pretty much everything.. the fact that it’s yet another involuntary bite move ( same as s3 when Eric bit her with Russell).. so Sookie is going to scream everytime Eric bites her on TB?? & she lets Billy bite her after a draining in the shower?? seems shadey to me( i mean i know AB has said time & time agian that Billy & Sookie are soul mates) but it’s a little silly on her part to keep a vampire with amnesia in her house if he did bite her like that while she lay sleep in her bed..
this is why i hope & think it’s a dream scene by Eric..
Unlike Bill, Eric doesn’t seem interested in feeding and sexing at the same time. It’s like eating a chicken leg in the middle of having intercourse lol. Gross.
Anyhoo, Sookie is in the habit of while she’s dreaming of Eric he goes in for an aggressive bite and she wakes up just before it happens. This might be a dream in which he actually chows down before she wakes up.
I mean, how would she know any better? Bill is always fucking and feeding.
Ah, but the bite is supposed to part of the erotic pleasure. At least in the books it was. Sent her heights never before attained. LOL
Only during sex was the bites pleasurable to Sookie.. & in fact on TB they have shown this actually with her facial expressions when Billy bit her wrist in s2 & when she get’s bit on other occassions.. but when Sookie & Billy were having sex she was okay with all the blood exchanges.. even Billy spitting blood in her mouth..
Trying again to bring this comment to the bottom:
Ok, so does anyone have any ideas why Sookie would be telling Bill “When have I ever given you a reason not to trust me?”
i have been pondering about this Charm…
i wonder if King Billy told Sookie about something related to him killing QSA or vampire Politics?? whatever he tells her he wants it to remain a secret.. like the only person she told UB molested her was Billy.. ( even book Eric still doesnt know about that stuff).. so anyway Billy tell’s her not to tell anybody & Sookie response must have been ” when have i ever given you a reason not to trust me”..
so AB is showing that Billy & Sookie share personal secrets with eachother?? i guess to further build on the “soul Mate” analogy??
This is a stab in the dark. Bill being able to enter her dreams, perhaps he has knowledge of her feelings for Eric. We saw Lorena enter her dream in 2.09, it may have been a metaphor for Bill.
I totally think Bill is able to ‘view’, for lack of a better word, Sookie’s dreams of Eric. (or any of her dreams for that matter) Bill knows her Eric dreams are about more than sex, that they portray an emotional connection.
see this is part of the shared dreams right?? Lorena was in Sookie’s dream in s2.. so if Billy is capable of entering Sookie’s dreams on a whim then this will just continue for furture seasons..
Oh yes, it will continue only Sookie doesn’t understand the extent to which Bill can invade her psyche. Even if she DID understand it I don’t know what she could do about it short of staking him.
it’s a little nerve raking IMO .. i mean okay we have King Billy in Louisana now & he lives next door to the silly Telepath.. & we have AE.. Eric is only in Bon Temps for a few days.. so what will be interesting IMO is s5..
TB Sookie is beyond snarky at this point.. we have a chick that is still in love with her ex, flirting with the wolf & sleeps with an amnesia Viking Sheriff because oh yea, she has a connection to him.. LOL !!
plus it looks like AE fleed Sookie’s house ( maybe to go hunt/feed)?? since it said Sookie & Alcide go looking for Eric..
Here is my speculation on the Say No to Hate rally Nan and Bill seemed to have cooked up–I think they plan on bombing the place and blaming it on the FoTS (or they might even be in on it with the FoTS or elements of it’s power structure, ie Newlin)or the Witches.
False Flag attack: False flag (aka Black Flag) operations are covert operations designed to deceive the public in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by other entities. The name is derived from the military concept of flying false colors; that is flying the flag of a country other than one’s own. False flag operations are not limited to war and counter-insurgency operations, and can be used in peace-time.
While false flag operations originate in warfare and government, they also can occur in civilian settings among certain factions, such as businesses, special interest groups, religions, political ideologies and campaigns for office.
“False flag terrorism” occurs when elements within a government stage a secret operation whereby government forces pretend to be a targeted enemy while attacking their own forces or people. The attack is then falsely blamed on the enemy in order to justify going to war against that enemy.
Oh ho, that makes a lot of sense.
That is a reply to Sunny and false flag.
It’s the same concept that a lot of conspiracy theorists use to explain what happened on 911. I’m not saying AB believes in these conspiracies–and I’m not saying he doesn’t–but I wouldn’t put it past him to put it to use. After all, ‘The Shock Doctrine’ lays out the reasoning for carrying out such ‘false flag’ terror attacks.
so the witches kinda interfer with the vamps plans?? i mean while Nan & Billy or working on this False Flag plan & Nan already told Billy no bodies ( so Billy has to make sure the death count is low ).. AE running loose in a town is a problem for Billy.. which is why he get’s involved with the witches …??
Whatever deaths occur Bill will blame it on Eric.
“No dead humans” implies to me that the death count has to only include vampires so that the human public will sympathize and support punitive action against whatever human agency is supposedly responsible for the attack. I don’t know if the witches will interfere with these plans or if they help facilitate them in exchange for some kind of concessions from the vampire hierarchy. Bill pulling in witches and punishing them implies he’s on a witch hunt so a deal might be struck between the vamps and witches to end the strife.
Yea, of course he will.. & i expect that as well.. but one of the spoiler’s say that Bill get’s involved with the witches..
if Billy wants Eric to remain a Sheriff after his curse then as King he has to deal with the situation & frankly charge Eric when the curse is lifted for crimes.. Billy wouldnt want to charge AE because it looks like AE is the one chocking him & he has to swear fealty to Billy..
We KNOW he’s involved with the witches because we’ve already seen clips of him feeding off Daisy, the witch who goes to Fangtasia with a message. I am 99% certain that Bill will be behind the curse so that he can’t interfere with Bill’s power grab and attendant hunt for Fae blood.
i guess s4/s5 with Billy as a King is just bewildering to me.. i hope Billy is the one who got Marnie to curse Eric.. i like that theory & hope it pans out.. i mean Billy called Regular Eric to the house to talk about the new witches coven & the inquisition.. so i can see it as a set up… Eric goes busting in & doing his thing, Marnie get’s pissed & decides to curse his ass..
i’m curious what the curse will be on TB?? we know it’s amnesia but the meaning of the curse?? i wonder if AB is keeping it the same “Eric’s Hearts Desire”??
This sounds good Charm.. i can see this happening.. now since it appears clear that Billy is a King i guess he is the AVL/ Nans puppet..
i still like your theory on the fact that Billy mimicked QSA’s voice or something..
HA, Billy & Sookie can mimick voices on TB ( she mimicks the way Billy say’s her name & he mimicks Eric’s)..
Although it has yet to be established in TB, perhaps the connection will fade if it isn’t renewed on a regular basis.
So much for his forswearing feeding on her in S3.
Totally agree about the emotional connection. And that is the biggest threat to his plans, whatever they may ultimately be. The immediate plans being access to fae hybrid blood.
Can you imagine getting turned on by bites that literally break the skin and make you bleed? I mean, erotic nips are one thing but drawing blood is quite another LOL. Bill corrupted her.
alot of the other Fangbanger’s do get turned on by the bites as well.. Hoyt enjoyed Jessica biting him in s3..
IDK, how AB is going to do the AE sex scene with Sookie .. in DTTW AE did bite Sookie during sex & she enjoyed it.. but if AB is trying to convey that sex & blood with Eric dont go togather then IDK.. she will be enjoying the sex with AE i guess because he goes for 6 hours?? or because he has the G.P.??
she will be enjoying the sex with AE i guess because he goes for 6 hours?? or because he has the G.P.??
Both, duh. Plus, look at him.
Sookie plays “hard to get” with Eric for the majority of the books.. & even in DR she still plays alot of games..
so in s4 i dont expect any less of her.. but Eric/ AE still check mates her at the end of the day..
yea sex & blood isnt Eric’s style no matter if he is Regular Eric or AE..
which is cool because i think it’s safe to assume this isnt a sex scene..LOL !!
Thanks Sunny. Nice to learn something new everyday.
The “Dark” is what has me thinking you might be correct if this is a scene picking up from where we left off in s3 or what wasent shown?? Claudine materialized in the real world to gather Sookie.. Maybe after Eric & Russell drank from her ?? because it was dark in Sookie’s portal at that time as well..
If I remember correctly, that bruised Claudine was from ep. 3 or 4.
There was a site that put some caps in sequence, I’ll look for it.
Is she blasting the Jason lookalike we see at the beginning of the three minute preview?
Actually now that I think about it, I’m getting more of a Land of the Lotus Eaters’ vibe.
yea Sookie will want to return home & yada,yada,yada.. this could piss off Queen Mab?? Maybe??
Sookie didnt eat the fruit so she wont want to stay in bliss..LOL !! she wants to return home to all the chaos..
i beleive i speculated this on the speculation 9 thread already..
Lotus eating floated through my head too at one point. The ancient Egyptians used the Blue Lotus in ritual and its image is found in tomb paintings so it can be associated with the afterlife and rebirth.
“The mildly sedating effects of Nymphaea caerulea makes it a likely candidate (among several) for the lotus plant eaten by the mythical Lotophagi in Homer’s Odyssey.”
wow i left & came back & we have a new thread **giggle**
from what i read i agree.. i think the missing year occured between s1-2…
Thanks to Osterby’s timeline
& i too am interested in seeing what the tags are in s4..
the Pam thing crawling on the rug?? i was wondering about that too.. i wonder if Eric/ AE knocked her down?? or Jason??
so far i’m just glad that this season is about “showing your true color’s”…
hopefully in s4 we will get alot of sarcastic Pammy
Renee, I know you’re busy but you MUST read this:
Wow! James bond as the alchemical sun king? Who knew?
The next time a bond movie comes on tv, I’ll definitely be using this article as a crib sheet. Thanks.
I HAVE to buy The Bond Code because of this quote in the article:
Overall the basics of the fairy tale are the basics of storytelling, and Fleming’s Bond novels are fairy tales overlaid with Fleming’s life and expertise. Gardiner’s approach to analyzing Fleming and his famous character can be used to explicate umpteen other adventure novels
Ha! Look what I stumbled across last week. It’s fresh off WordPress.
“Jack Zipes has suggested that “Snow White” is about female competition (133-136). The locus of the struggle is physical appearance and, by metonymy, erotic appeal of the (step)mother and daughter. Certainly Arthur Rackham’s illustration of the magic mirror suggests that’s what the story is about, as have many other retellings.
But, as my friend irreverently recently asked, what if it isn’t? What happens to the tale if that’s not the point?
There’s a fascinating hint in the first paragraph:
If only I had a child as white as snow, as red as blood, and as black as the wood in this frame.”
Read the rest.
That website looks fantastic! Thanks for linking!
Thanks for the link it’s great. I followed some of the other links & found that the author is a fan of George MacDonald who wrote quite a few fairy tales including Phantastes & Lilith.
Anyone seen this already?
Two clips of the same promo, both poor quality but put them together and you get the idea :)Hope HBO puts up a HQ soon.
I haven’t seen those yet! OMG! My heart skips a beat every time I hear Eric say, “You. Are. Mine.” *melt*
Ok. Eric looks and sounds weird to me.
He definitely sounds stressed. Are you picking up something more?
Barely controlled anger. Widened eyes, clenched jaw..Overwrought possessiveness/. I just doesn’t sound like how Eric would approach this. I can see him trying to reason with her about why it would be a good idea for him to ‘claim’ her for her own safety but not this…pronouncement, seemingly against her own wishes.
It is out of character for him. What if he knows the witches are in town at this point and he’s trying to protect Sookie from them by claiming her? It would parallel 1.03 when Bill claimed Sookie in front of the terrible trio.
The scene upstairs could be all a show for someone downstairs listening in. Pam could be trying to sneak up on the spy by crawling across the floor for some reason. Maybe she’s doing that at vamp speed.
Isn’t a vamp claiming a human (or in this case, a half-fae) only for the purpose of keeping other vamps from feeding off them? I can’t see how Eric claiming Sookie would protect her from witches, especially considering vamps can’t even protect themselves from witches. (that is, if the vamp has no idea HOW to protect themselves)
It also could be to warn away others away–”Mess with her, and you mess with me.” Of course, at that point, Eric wouldn’t know that’s exactly what Hallow intends to do.
It might be just the quality of the video. I just see intense, not so much overwrought.
Could be. My first impression was shock at his demeanor. I’ll have to let this one stew a while.
There is a new promo Sookie is Mine on Askars Swedish Meatballs.
Looks really good but the sound quality sucks on my computer. I can barely hear it.
Has anyone seen the HBO.GO 3 min. Sneak Peak? Doesn’t seem to want to play outside US. Grrr. Hope it will be on YouTube soooon.
I started to watch it but I just can’t! I realized I do not want to be spoiled that much.
Maybe you have a point. But damn it’s hard. Still feels like a long time to June 26.
I’m not sure I can hold out. LMAO!
Oh, I just watched the promo at Askars Swedish Meatballs. Whassup with Eric declaring You. Are. Mine.? And why is Sookie even giving Bill the time of day and lamenting about his shitty surprises? Bitch needs to stay far away from the vamp who had her beaten to within an inch of her life, not skipping over for visits.
Unfortunately I can barely hear what is being said, the music is louder than the actors. Diddled with the volume but, nada. I guess I’ll have to wait for a better version.
Shitty surprises sounds promising.
Looks like Eric is making that declaration prior to AE.
What’s with huggywere Alcide?
She’s throwing him a bone?
ROTFL on so many levels.
LMAO…huggywere…is that kind of like underroos?
That cap of Alcide and Sook in a hug just kind of made me think of Summer calling Hoyt Bear. You know, big eyes, arms to wrap around…
I just can’t warm up to Alcide. Oh he’s pretty enough, just not my cup of joe. harhar.
Strong independent woman be damned. If Eric wants to go all cave man, I’m there!
Last year Ep 1 was spoiled for me, but the others were good. I’m going into s4 assuming the same.
To be continued next week on HBO go! Are they going to show us the entire first ep, three minutes at a time, before June 26th?
Woot! Earl is in FL!
And he has no clue that 20 years have gone by???
So Sookie has to be the loved one that he sacrificially saves. Woot! Woot! That’s one I’m going to crow about.
*tips hat to Renee*
So we have our first parallel of the season.
Earl meets his grown up granddaughter.
Bill meets his grown up great great great granddaughter.
Earl is going to save Sookie. I wonder if Bill will save the Bellefluers financially or just screw them.
And I’m sure Bill will try and make it look like he’s saving the Bellefluers when in truth he’s just screwing them over. Sure does sounds like something Bill would do…
I’m guessing eating the fruit is not a good idea. Wonder if it makes you forget things…..
That would make a lot of sense, lize. Listen to me…Fairyland making sense. ROTFL! In any case, I think you’re right.
Have you Noticed that none of the full fairies eat the fruit, they only have glowing drinks.
And ikwym, nothing about vampires, witches, weres and fairies really makes sense now does it
The fairies drink the light,and the hybrids eat the fruit. Are they called lumieres? I can’t hear very well.
Sookie’s aversion to eating food is going to come in handy in FL.
The translation for lumière is light. It’s probably just a coincidence that the Lumière brothers were among the earliest film makers.
There is something definitely creepy about that place.
It’s interesting that Sookie doesn’t jump right in munching the fruit like everyone else. She senses something is amiss.
I keep thinking of the last lines from Yeats’ poem The Song of Wandering Aengus
The silver apples of the moon,
The golden apples of the sun
Nice. There’s also the tree of life and the tree of knowledge.
Well, I broke down and watched it. First impression: did you notice the ‘eerie music’ that always plays when Sookie’s mind is getting bent?
I thought it was the new music. It’s certainly eerie, though.
It comes in right at the end. I might be mistaken but it sounds exactly the same to me as the soundtrack when the kitchen chairs started dancing in s1.
Gotcha. It’s that Twilight Zone music again. It played when Gran was talking about Uncle Frances.
I find it interesting that Earl’s middle name is also Frances and there is also one in the Stackhouse family tree.
Plus the chorus girl named Francis, who smelled like apricots.
Those faeries sure are wearing lots of bling. Serious bling. I have to say, that headpiece the girl is wearing in the opening shot looks familiar.
Here is the HD version of the promo:
Much better. Thanks for the link. Daisy (or whatever her new name is) and Bill aren’t in his study. That’s a new room we haven’t seen. I thought it was the living room, but when Sookie stands in the doorway, I don’t think the layout is right.
It is Nan in the alley in the flashback, and with bared fangs. We haven’t seen that before. There’s a website somewhere with a photo of a young woman running down that alley. Did Nan save someone from Bill?
Now I’m even more sure that Eric’s declaration to Sookie is for someone else’s benefit. They are being watched. That scene reminds me of when Eric told Sookie to invite him in because the were was in the house. I don’t care, though. It still makes me tingly.
In these screencaps, does it look like Sookie is standing outside on the porch and Bill is INSIDE her house?
I guess it could be his house but in the prior promo, the one where it looks like Bill is grabbing Sookie, they’re in these same clothes and it definitely looks like her porch.
Lloyd’s pectoral is something else, too.
The extra on the scene when the water is dripping on to Bill and he goes to Fairyland says that Bill got there even though he wasn’t invited.
Sookie was also protect three times by Claudine/the Fae, through the chain wrapping itself around her attacker’s neck and the two glowing hand incidents.
Bill often looks even more creepy in high definition.
That’s interesting info, anna! So the day glo hand isn’t Sookie’s own power?
Do you already have the S3 DVDs? Bill in that screen test is the creepiest thing I’ve seen in a long time.
I think the flashbacks are shown when Claudine is replying to Bill’s accusation about Sookie not being protected, so probably.
I’ve just got the DVDs and some of the extras I’ve watched so far seem to back up what everyone’s been discussing over the last few months.
There’s a lot to take in and I’m dipping in and out but I could probably do some transcribing of comments etc for a particular episode or scene if anyone would like me to.
AB and Denis O’Hare have a great time commenting on Ep 6.
Is anyone else getting the DVDs?
Osterby volunteered to be on the transcription crew with me again this year, and we’d love some help. She’s going to start with ep. 6.
If you want to do ep. 1, that would be great! Last year we transcribed the Blu-ray features and just made notes for the commentaries since so much of that is fluff.
I’ll start with whichever eps are on disc 2 when my set arrives on Tuesday.
Ep 6 is a good place to start, it’s the first one I watched! There’s also a reference to LTROI in that episode.
I’m happy to do ep 1 as I haven’t watched it yet and I’ll see how it goes. The FYI comments are easy, it’s the talking heads that will take more time.
Anna, I have one word of advice for transcribing….subtitles.
Thanks Osterby! I did try that but unfortunately I don’t seem to be able to get any subtitles to show up for the talking heads.
That’s one of the reasons we didn’t do transcriptions for the commentaries in the past, just notes. A lot of talk can be boiled down to a few bits of key info.
i’m sort of glad that the glo hands arent Sookie’s own powers & that Claudine has been letting Sookie sort of borrow her power.. maybe the Glo Hand is a Pure Fae gift Only.. maybe this means or at least i think it means that Eric’s blood had nothing to do with bringing out Sookie’s powers.. & Laffy’s power’s seem to be very similar to Sookie’s..
Laffy said alot in s3 “The Blood Lies” he was talking about “V” ..
Thanks for this info Anna,
so Billy did open up some kind of portal?? ( i’m calling it a portal for now untill AB states it as such either in s4 or later season)..
i knew the water dripping in his sleeping chamber’s meant that he got into Faeland …
Peaches. Grandpa Earle gives her a peach 20 yrs. past.
Weren’t there lots of posters in S1 Merlotte’s of peaches?
I really have to wonder if Barry JUST got there too. He may be there so she feels comfortable seeing someone she knows. Wherever “there”really is. ‘There’ is creepy.
Face palm! S3 those peaches were still at Merlotte’s. Hoyt stood in front of a few when he talked to Jess while Summer was in the ladies.
If Earl thinks he just been there a week, Barry could have been there for all of S3. I read something a couple months ago that said he eventually returned back to work after the Bon Temps crew left. I need to track down where that came from, though. It was on something ‘official,’ not fan fiction.
I have no problem being wrong about Barry and when he gets there. But the peaches thing screamed at me for some reason.
Did anyone notice that Barry is in the same outfit that he went to Bills room in season 2 to warn him about Sookie being in trouble and Lorena took him and bit him.
I did notice Marlnails. Hmmm..
Welcome Marnails! What a great observation!
In checking the screencaps, it looks like his outfit is the exact opposite of his last appearance.
S2 gray jacket and black shirt
S4 black jacket and gray shirt
Why? What is the significance? Does it indicate Barry is still stuck in the black alchemical stage? Sookie wore summer clothes well into the fall, and Barry wore fall clothes at the height of the Texas summer.
Renée just wanted 2 again thank u 4 ur blog¡¡¡ It’s the only 1 I visit regularly n I have checked out A LOT!!! I’m most looking 4ward 2 season 4 T.B n all the things u notice n educate me on. I really really do appreciate all ur hard work n the time u put in2 this blog….yyyaaayyy sooooo excited 4 new season!!!! ~Nv~. Xoxo
Hi Nevada! I’m so glad to hear that you enjoy TAP and hope that you will join the conversation.
did someone mention that the fruit in Faeland “makes you happy”?? i’m not sure if i heard that correctly…
since the Fae blood is a Aphrodisiac to the blood & the “V” does it’s thing as well i wonder how s4 Sookie will come off since it’s been 1 whole year since she has had “V” anyway??
did someone mention that the fruit in Faeland “makes you happy”??
I don’t think I did, but I meant to twice and got distracted. LOL!
I’m also curious to see how Bill got on for a year without his fae fix.
yea i have to re-watch it myself.. because i wasent sure if i heard what i think i heard?? i think i heard someone say “it makes you happy”??
yea the 1 year jump helps with the cleansing situation.. since in the books it was noted that if Sookie doesnt exchange in a while the bond stays but it fades over time.. it’s been about 1.5 yrs in the books since S/B exchabged blood with eachother..
maybe this answer’s some of our past questions about Billy still having access to the portal… maybe he needs Sookie to keep exchanging blood with him to be able to enter in the first place.. ??
When Barry starts eating the lumière fruit (or whatever it is called) he says something like: “wow, this is like biting into pure hapiness.”
Thank You Lizzie,
i knew i heard someone “use” the word “Happy” from eating into the fruit.. HA !! AB is a nut.. i hope he didnt take away that Eric makes Sookie Happy in s4/ DTTW with this Fruit of happiness in Faeland… **sigh**
To me, the reaction reminded me of the drugtheme of this season, like the fruit gives you some kind of high (like ‘V’) that make it hard to resist….and with all kind of nasty side effects…..
There is a thin line between being crazy and genious. For me, it all depends on how E/S are being portrayed this season. Sure hoping for some ‘happy moments’ there
ETA: and your welcome LATM!
Yea, i too have made the same conclusion of the Fae blood to “V”..
maybe AE will be Sookie’s symbolic fruit of happiness
plus all the Supes are addicted to Sookie’s scent or blood anyway.. so she is the emphany of a walking Aphrodisiac ( either by smell or taste)..
Alcide took a good **sniff** on Sookie’s porch in s3.. Sam is smitten by Sookie by smell & the vamps like her blood.. of course Sookie only see’s herself as “Vampire Crack” in regards to the vamps.. it never crosses her mind about her scent.. it’s the same way in the books.. i guess Sookie thinks the were animals just like her because she is so darn goodlooking & humans dont give her the time of day **snort**
Great new caps at
Breaking Up Sucks & More Than Just a Tease
You can really see that the light missile is coming from Sookie. How does this fit in with the idea that the glow hand isn’t Sookie’s own?
Didnt AB already say that the Fae can channel energy?? i thought he said that during s3 in one of the after the episodes gig??
if the Fae can channel ebergy then why not there own?? Claudine can channel her Hand flash weapon through Sookie since she is her Fairy God Mother.. but it’s not Sookie’s own power which explains why Sookie in s4 doesnt learn how to use the power all the way..
We’ve been talking about the fruit at SVB. It reminds me of the Greek myth of the lotus eaters. What Earl says about just seeing Sookie last week, and Sookie saying that it was 20 years ago seems to be a confirmation that time passes differently in fae land. Perhaps the fruit keeps the abductees sedate and blissfully unaware of time passing.
*waves* – it’s been a while since I’ve posted here
Great minds think alike! I just said the same thing.
There is a cool idea floating around that Eric must have bought Sookie’s house in s4 since she has been gone for a year..
if this idea pans out that will be pretty cool IMO.. Eric can give Sookie the deed to her house back after the curse if lifted ..instead of giving her the $50,000 she got in DTTW for babysitting AE…
The downside to this is that if Eric owns the house, then vamps don’t need an invitation to enter. Franklin told us that in S3. It might explain how Eric manages to surprise Sookie fresh out of the shower in that promo clip, but it will make it harder for her to protect AE if vamps can enter her house without invitation.
I also figure, at least before the curse, that Eric didn’t just buy Sookie’s house solely out of the goodness of his own heart. He’s often got more than one motive, right?
Right Krtmd, Eric always has more then 1 motive..
but who in the world is after Sookie in s4?? so far the only vamps that we know KNOW Sookie is Eric,Pam,Bill,QSA ( possibly Andre since he is QSA’s progeny), Russell, Isabel, ( TX Vamps)..
there was a picture of some strange vamps in Sookie’s house earlier.. on the steps a male & a female.. so Eric could have rented the house out to them & then Sookie returns & maybe runs to Billy’s house?? or she tries to uninvite them in & it doesnt work..
but i think if Eric ownes the house giving her back the deed to her house is more valuable then the $50,000 on TB.. since the $50,000 was valuable in the books..
@ Krtmd -” We’ve been talking about the fruit at SVB. It reminds me of the Greek myth of the lotus eaters. What Earl says about just seeing Sookie last week, and Sookie saying that it was 20 years ago seems to be a confirmation that time passes differently in fae land. Perhaps the fruit keeps the abductees sedate and blissfully unaware of time passing”…
this is what i was thinking of as well.. this Greek Myth story was from Pseudo ( Son of Neptunus ,Poseidon).. the Lotus eater’s lost track of time as well…
So I guess when Eric gets distracted from biting Marnie and looks around at something, it’s TARA coming at him with a stake? I can’t wait to see those two together.
I have NO idea how my Tara with a stake comment ended up way up here. I thought I was putting it on the bottom.
The Only time i can recall Faeland or Sookie’s “Portal” dark was in s3 after Eric & Russell drank from her..
other then this Faeland & the portals have been “Summerland” like or rather Summery..
plus it looks like AB is placing Faeland up high like Mt. Olympus..
IOW, FL has been DARK ever since Bill gained access. In the finale, the chandelier–artificial light—was the only lighting. Now in FL we don’t have any actual sunlight but some sort of strange, artificially lighted netherworld. Very unlike the natural surroundings when Sookie took her trip in the hospital.
i’m pretty sure the finished print will come out the way AB wants it shown..
i think someone over here on this site speculated a while ago that maybe Billy cursed Eric?? or Billy got the witches to curse Eric?? whomever idea that was i like it
& i think it’s even more possible NOW.. at first didnt make a comment on the idea because i wasent sure if AB would go there & then have Billy work with Eric torwards the end to break the curse?? but now it seems more & more likely the more info we get.. plus Sookie will be around so it is typical Billy in front of Sookie to act like he is helping Eric..since he didnt help Tara & Sookie already knows this..
i really dont know what to say about the AE #39 scene & Real Eric #40 scene.. i think AE stumbling down the road will occur after he get’s cursed.. because we dont know what scene # Eric bit Marnie?? or what scene # it appears Billy bit into Daisy it looks like from the s4 clip..
thsi is what Anna posted up above :
” The extra on the scene when the water is dripping on to Bill and he goes to Fairyland says that Bill got there even though he wasn’t invited.
Sookie was also protect three times by Claudine/the Fae, through the chain wrapping itself around her attacker’s neck and the two glowing hand incidents.
Bill often looks even more creepy in high definition”.
this alludes to the Glo hand power not being Sookie’s own power.. but it was channeled through Claudines Pure Fae power…
Perhaps this is how AB can have Claudine help when there are vamps around. In the books, Claudine couldn’t step in to help in situations with vampires since they’d want to drain her. So, in TB Claudine can watch Sookie unseen and channel her power through Sookie to protect her???
I updated the spoiler page.
There are new faces for some minor roles in the casting section. Of special note: The Duke, an uncredited role in 4.02, a nameless little girl who will appear in 4.09 and 4.10, and a new sheriff who is introduced in 4.09. I’m thinking the new sheriff may be the sarcastic vampire from the flashback of the witch trial.
Here’s what we’ve been told about him — “Cast in a recurring role on an HBO series is Peter Madissi. He will play a vampire sheriff in Louisiana, who harbors a troubled past with ties to the Spanish Inquisition, torture, and the witches that are settling in Bon Temps.”
In the filming section there is a fan photo of AS that shows a bullet hole in the white henley in addition to the blood that was seen earlier in a fan video.
I also added all the new promos and posters.
And the following news:
AB said one scene was shot in 3D, but doesn’t know if it will air.
Alexander Woo says the primary theme is identity.
Jessica Tuck says of Nan: “It would be foolish to think that her efforts were just about making humans and vamps one big happy family,” Tuck tells True Blood’s Nest of Nan’s work to mainstream vampires. “There is an agenda behind her agenda but that is not for me to reveal right now. Stay tuned.”
“All I can say is that Nan and Bill have a history,” she says. “Details of that history will be revealed in Season 4. If I say anything more than that, I’ll get myself in trouble.”
“Relationships between the characters get much more complicated and redefined,” Tuck also says. “I love this season – I think there is a lot to sink your teeth into. You won’t be disappointed.”
“Nan is mysterious- even to me. I don’t know how old she is or where she was born. More about Nan is revealed in season 4 but I can’t go into detail without spoiling things for you.”
Peter Macdissi is great. He was in SFU and Towelhead, so he’s an AB alumnus. I’m looking forward to seeing what he does in his role. I am also totally stoked for the Nan/Bill backstory!!! Season 4′s slmost here!
IDK..is it a coincidence that lookalike Eggs and lookalike Ms. Jeannette appear at 2:27?:
There does seem to be a resemblance.
I also see the “godmother” fae as sort of minders. ykwim?
Someone needs to talk me down off a ledge. There is a blurb from AB on The Vault about S4. He states that Sookie is still feeling heat for Bill. STILL FEELING HEAT? If he goes down that road I swear I’m going to take up a petition to have him castrated. How the hell can a woman still have a thing for a person responsible for having her beaten to near death, plus draining her to near death? That goes beyond any…..I can’t even think what.
Yes, she may not remember everything he has done too her, but dear god in heaven something should trigger alarm bells.
There is a blurb from AB on The Vault about S4. He states that Sookie is still feeling heat for Bill. STILL FEELING HEAT?
Sookie is so full of Bill’s blood I’d be surprised if she wasn’t ‘still feeling the heat’. It’s disgusting, yes.
I think there might be a clue in the quote “From the Team Eric, Team Bill viewpoints, one of those teams will be happy, one won’t.” It may partly be a way of keeping the speculation and discussions going until the season starts and beyond.
Sookie’s “still feeling heat WITH Bill and Alcide”, but then Bill tends to use those magic words “I’ll always love you”, “I’ll love you for ever” etc.
I also wonder how TB would handle a story line that involved a character like Lafayette being beaten and drained half to death by his lover, would Lala still feel any heat with that man?
I think so, if he’d been as thoroughly manipulated and brain washed as Sookie has by Bill.
I really don’t think it’s a gender issue, or an issue of misogyny on the part of the writers. I think it’s about illustrating a fascist mind-set, fascism being a cult of masculinity/machismo, and how it manifests at the micro as well as the macro level. Even Nan embodies this mind-set.
Just had an curious thought.
Sookie meets grandpa Earl in FL and he states that he just saw her a week ago on her 7th birthday. She says that was 20 yrs. ago.
1. So Earl disappeared approximately 1 yr. before her parents death?
2.She met Bill when she was 25?
Oh crap…it’s the time line again.
Posts are winding up in strange places again. Yikes.
Has anyone read anything, anywhere, which suggests Sookie’s friends and family will be putting in an effort to find her while she’s supposedly gone for an ENTIRE YEAR? Given the fact that the freaking SHERIFF of Bon Temps is aware that Bill perpetrated an act of domestic violence upon Sookie, why isn’t it at least hinted at that Bill comes under suspicion for her disappearance? Is there any hint that her disappearance is a HUGE SCANDAL given the current atmosphere post RE and her relationship with a vampire? Eric merely thinks that Bill ‘gave up’ on Sookie which suggests to me that HE NEVER SUSPECTED BILL!!!
WHAT IS THIS FUCKERY, I ask ya’ll? LOL.
Good lord, I tried to put the above comment at the very bottom. Have no idea how it ended up here in the middle.
i havent read anything about it..
but at the end of the day, i guess the point is that since Billy went missing in s3 & Sookie spent half the season looking for him & even asked Eric to help.. which he did & sent Alcide to assist her in her search.. because she told him she helped him look for Look in s2 ( even though he paid her for that job).. **shake head**
i guess the point is that Billy gave up on his Soooka without a search..
oops i meant Godric…
but yea, Eric looks at that as Billy giving up on Sookie .. besides Billy is the only one who has visited the portal & he could have told Jason where he thinks Sookie went since it has been 1 whole year..
I don’t give a shit about Billy. He’s a vampire and nobody but Sookie cared where the fuck he was. I’m saying Sookie has people who love her. What about Jason? Tara? Anybody? When Jessica went missing, her parents were all over television asking for information on her whereabouts. Given the circumstances, I can’t imagine it would be hard for Sookie’s brother, a deputy in training no less!, to get on tv and stir up a huge stink about her disappearance especially given her relationship with, and her abuse at the hands of!, a vampire!
How does Billy gaining ANY kind of power, PR position or not, when logically he should be the prime suspect in the disappearance of a human woman????
Forget missing Eric posters, where the hell are the Missing Sookie posters? Any indication whatsoever that anyone is searching for her? Any indication Bill puts HIS life on hold like she did for him when he went missing?
all that is true Charm..
& so far we havent got anything that even alludes to people looking for Sookie or Billy puting on a search for Sookie or anything… it is almost as if everyone was in their own world the same way Sookie has been for the last 3 seasons.. KARMA !!
Tara left for a year.. Jason is in his own world with Hot Shot & Billy still could have called him & told him something .. Sam must not have put too much into a search party either really.. & Eric is the one dude who she called a piece of shit to 1 year ago & he didnt give up on her?? LOL !!
But i think we have to see how this plays out before we actually make too much out of it..
Maybe there is some flyer’s up & we dont know yet?? they would have to be shown in epi 1/s4.. maybe Jason went to Andy & filed a missing person report?? all that will shown in epi 1 when the season starts..
in s3 we got spoiler’s of Sookie looking for Billy.. But Sookie MIA in s4 is not the drive of the plot.. Eric having Amnesia & the witches are.. & when Jessica went missing we only got info on that during the season not from spoiler’s in s2.. how Jessica’s parents were tripping over their missing daughter..
But why make SUCH a big deal about Bill’s disappearance of a few days before season 3 aired and NOT make a big deal in s4 out of the fact that Sookie is missing for AN ENTIRE YEAR?
Because Billy missing or going away in s3 was the entire plolt of s3.. & Billy had just proposed to Sookie in s2 finale..
AB created the flyer’s of Billy gone missing in s3 ( that was a book 4 thing when Eric went missing & Hallow but up flyer’s)..
Sookie was looking for the Love of her life in s3 ..the man she thought she would marry.. Sookie missing isnt the biggest drive plot in s4.. besides she is only missing for half of 1 epi.. but that will total out to be 1 year.. Billy was missing for a few days/ weeks in s3 & Sookie was all crazy about it..
But Sookie is the main character. It SHOULD be a big deal that she just up and vanishes one day without a trace. If Sookie going missing doesn’t drive any of the other characters into action then there is something very wrong here.
Also to add..
once the show starts we have to see how the people are talking… i mean Sam is her boss.. he didnt call Jason & ask Jason where is Sookie?? i’m sure he must have otherwise that would be weird IMO..
i mean what kinda friends are these people?? Tara has the excuse of actually leaving town.. but, i guess she didnt call Jason & wonder why Sookie is never home when she call?? alot of that odd ball shit on TB..
The ONLY way I can see Jason, in particular, not putting in any effort to find Sookie is if Bill calls and reassures him using Sookie’s voice. I cannot IMAGINE Jason, who threw Bill out of his house and KNOWS Bill nearly killed Sookie, taking Bill’s word for anything, especially Sookie’s whereabouts.
Great point about Bill imitating her voice. Didn’t think of that.
Works for me.
That is a possibility Charm.. considering that we know Billy has a gift to mimick voices..
There has to be more than one reason to show us that ability of mimicry by Bill. Not just the Eric voice at the end of S3.
i mean that is a talent if you can mimick the voice of the Sheriff, as Sookie mimicked the way Bill say’s her name to Jason.. HAHA !!
Perhaps they haven’t shown the answer to your question of where is she. That may come once the series airs…..or not.
That is the mystery. How long has she been actually gone?
Who fixed up her house? Did whoever fixed it own it too? So many questions.
What seems to make people certain that it is 1 yr. is a comment made by Ryan Kwanten some time ago. He said at some red carpet or interview that a year has passed.
Spoiler TV has the title of episode 4:12…”And When I Die”
what a interesting Title..
humm.. “And When I Die”.. i wonder what this epi will be about??
Peter Paul and Mary?
Try Blood Sweat and Tears. Much more better.
Saw them live back in the day.
Yes, much better. More soulful.
And David Clayton Thomas is Canadian eh.
I wanted that to be at the bottom. Looks like the gremlins are still gremlining.
I’m gonna try this again.
just lurking & enjoying most of it.
WHOA! New promo “I can eat who I want” on
I don’t why this is posted way up here. It was meant to be at the bottom.
Anyway, lots of action in the promo.
Eric has Bill by the throat.
Sookie surrounded by people with guns.
Eric and I think Godric very fangy.
Sam taking a swipe at Andy.
And more. Exciting!!!!
The worst one is Sookie being attacked by darkhaired vamp (my guess Bill).
Does Eric have new larger fangs or is it just my eyesight?
Exciting stuff, thanks for the link BG.
It could be Bill, but I’m not sure.
Eric’s fangs do look different.
Here’s hoping they’re trying to fake us out with the Eric and Godric clip just before the attack.
Looks like Bill has some serious guards. That’s the dress Sookie is wearing when she turns up and Bill is feeding on Daisy, or whoever she is this week.
Sookie is scared shitless when Bill busts in her door but it looks like AE throws his ass against the wall!
I am TIRED of seeing punk-ass Bill popping fang.
I don’t get the deal with Godric/Eric and then somebody biting the hell out of Sookie. Is that Bill?
My guess is that it is Bill biting Sookie at the end. But she MIGHT be dreaming.
Another ton of spoilers from IMDB boards, dated 1 hour ago.
Forgot to mention- Episodes 38 to 42.
I’m beginning to feel like it’s too much information.

Ahh! Thanks. So ep 4 title is “I’m Alive and On Fire” and ep 5 title has been changed.
Sam penetrates Luna’s inner circle.
Me and the Devil by Gil Scott Heron:
He died just recently. I loved him.
Gahhh! It won’t let me copy it, but it’s the ep summaries for July. It definitely does not look like Eric is AE until ep 4. Ep 6 says ‘Eric surrenders to his King’s will.’
Episode 4 it is!
Bill’s got black-clad guards, there are sheriff’s under his purview, he’s making decisions about witches, SA is nowhere in sight, Eric surrenders to his king; am I missing anything? I think the writing is on the wall..
And it’s not only at Arlene’s house.
Still gets his hiney chewed out by Nan. Love the brief glimpse of her, she’s fierce.
i have been pondering this over all night Charm..
i wonder if Billy said something to her about “Trust”?? i mean he is explaining his background info to her a little more in s4 & since he is King of Louisana now he might have told her something & said “Not to tell anyone”??
so she responds with “When have i ever given you a reason not to trust me”…
