True Blood Season 5 ended with a twist, the bloody rebirth of Bill Compton. Or is it Lillith? Most fans lovingly refer to him as Billith. This left our Eric Northman and Sookie Stackhouse running like hell for the house, as they say in the south. As an audience we were left slackjawed and curious as to where show writers and Alan Ball were taking this story line.
Warlow, the mysterious supernatural creature who killed Sookie’s parents, well be defined in Season Six of True Blood. Alan Ball confirmed this, but wouldn’t elaborate on any specifics. Two new castings mean fresh blood for Bon Temps and new characters. Joe Manganiello has promised a more aggressive and sexually charged Alcide Herveaux. But, for the most part, lips are still sealed about the newest season.
It’s my hope that Season Six will redeem True Blood’s often imbalanced Season Five. While you absolutely cannot (That’s another blog another day, folks.) compare the books to the series, I had to wonder if leaving Charlaine Harris’ frame work so far behind was a good idea. I’m all for creativity and enjoying the books as a separate entity from the show but Season Five seemed to grasp at straws and jump the shark more than once.
Never the less, this girl won’t miss a single episode as long as the likes of Alexander, Joe, and Ryan Kwanten remain active cast. Seeing them on the screen on Sunday night is worth the sometimes brow raising antics. (See: fairy war. Really Alan Ball? If that wasn’t bad enough check out the fairy birth. Now, you know.)
No matter your view on the series, Season Six promises to provide a big war, lots of answers about Warlow and some twists to our favorite characters. What do you hope Season Six brings us? Comment below and share!
