True Blood New Season 6 Spoilers, Extra Bonus Scenes
Now that theÂ True BloodÂ season 5 finaleÂ has set things in motion for an extremely exciting sixth season, itâ€™s time to find out what exactly we can expect as our stay in Bon Temps is extended one more year.
True Bloodâ€™sÂ bloody finale left fans wanting answers to even more questions, chomping at the bit to find out the more about theÂ mysteriousÂ Warlow. With almost a yearâ€™s wait untilÂ True BloodÂ season 6, series creator Alan Ball exits the series by revealing some things that fans can expect to see next season.
Speaking withÂ TV Line, Ball brings some hope to Billâ€™s (currently) bleak situation, throws a twist in Pam and Taraâ€™s relationship, explains the type ofÂ
manÂ vampire Eric Northman truly is, while also providing some answers as to why a fan favorite character (Hoyt) was written off the show. If youâ€™re hoping for more visualÂ True BloodÂ extras, you can check out the bonus scene from theÂ True BloodÂ season 5 finale (above). Picking up in the Vampire Authority elevator, we see Jason and everyone attempting to make their exit â€“ but not before the name â€œWarlowâ€ comes up.
After seeing Bill bloodily transform into Bill/Lilith (Bililith?), everyone is wondering exactly what kind of monster Sookie and friends will have to deal with in season 6. Though Bill showed a brief bit a fear before spontaneously exploding, his demeanor after being reborn was anything but friendly. Â Touching about this aspect, Ball hints that Bililith may not be completely gone, even if he is terrifying:
â€œWhoâ€™s to say what Lilith really is? He is still Bill but he is something different.
It is Bill, but it is a transformed Bill. He is not a completely new person. Itâ€™s not like his memories or his experiences have been left out and heâ€™s just a baby.
Is he going to be evil? What does he want? What is he going to do? Will he be able to revert back to Bill? Thatâ€™s for future seasons. The implication, certainly, is that he is more ferocious.â€
Though having to fight the always present supernatural inhabitants of Bon Temps, perhaps a former lover turned vampire god isnâ€™t the best thing to have hanging around Sookie. While thereâ€™s no doubt that Bill will somehow have to fight off the power that Lilithâ€™s blood brings him, we can only guess how muchÂ destructionÂ will have come before that moment. And even if Bill somehow rights himself, thereâ€™s still one mysterious name left to deal with: M. Warlow.
Ball will only say that Warlow will play a big part ofÂ True BloodÂ season 6. Even fans of the books are left in the dark on this mystery, as Sookieâ€™s parents were murdered by a pair ofÂ fairiesÂ in the novel, and the name â€œM. Warlowâ€ never comes up. That being said, there were still a few hints given about what type of creature Warlow might be. Having been able to present himself to Sookie, itâ€™s clear that Warlow has some kind of supernatural power, likely fairy. Combine that with the fact that we already know heâ€™s a vampire and thereâ€™s a very good chance that Warlow is some kind of vampire-fairy hybrid.
Taking a turn for the romantic, the surprising relationship between Tara and Pam caught many off guard. As many will wait and see what comes from televisionâ€™s most powerful women coupling, Ball quickly puts a stop to any type of â€œhappily every afterâ€ the future lovebirds may have:
â€œThey both were, if not full-on lesbians, than bisexual. They both were characters with real attitude. And they both hate each other â€” at least they did at the beginning of the season. And that, to me, felt like it could create a lot of tension that could turn romantic towards the end.
â€¦hereâ€™s the thing with relationships on True Blood: Once they happen then you have to throw a monkey-wrench into them, because to have people be happy is not that exciting.â€
Now that Bill is an evil vampire god, the heroic light is shining even greater on the one-time villainous Eric. Putting a different spin on the former vampire Sheriff, Ball reveals what his longtime stance has been on the allusive Northman:
â€œEric was kind of like a mischievous cad, but I donâ€™t think he was ever, like, a true villain the way that Russell was or the way that Maryann was. And heâ€™s done a lot of really heroic things himself. So I never really looked at Eric as the bad guy and Bill as the good guy â€“ at least not since the very early seasons.â€
Essentially bringing anyÂ True BloodÂ season 6 information to an end, Ball talks about one of the great losses from this season. As one of Bon Temps fan favorites, fans couldnâ€™t help but mourn theÂ departureÂ ofÂ Hoyt Fortenberry. Though still very much alive, Ball reveals why he decided to write Hoyt off his series:
â€œI felt like we had told his entire story. There werenâ€™t many places we could go with him that we hadnâ€™t been, but I love that character and I love Jim [Parrack] so much I didnâ€™t want to kill him. Heâ€™s always been such a good soul. I wanted to have the possibility for him to return as well. But he fell in love and he couldnâ€™t let go.â€
To wrap things up, Ball gives his final thoughts on working onÂ True Blood, and why he decided to move on.
â€œItâ€™s bittersweet. Itâ€™s been such a big part of my life for so long; of course itâ€™s hard to step away. But running that show is such a huge job and Iâ€™ve been doing it for five years straight. I just donâ€™t think I have another season left in me. I need to re-charge. And then Iâ€™m interested in doing something new â€” something with different characters and a different tone. As a writer, itâ€™s fun to create. And once you get into a long-running show with very established characters and a very established tone and format, after a while itâ€™s a really great job but thatâ€™s what it is â€” a job. Youâ€™re just continuing to create the same show. Iâ€™m at the point in my life where I donâ€™t want to work as hard. Actually, Iâ€™ve had to take a good hard look at workaholism and itâ€™s effect on oneâ€™s mental health. [Laughs] And, also, there are things I want to do that are different. I want to try something completely different.â€
True BloodÂ season 6 premieres on HBO in 2013.
