**********Warning : Season 5 spoilers ahead***********
I have to admit my fan-girl heart is having one hell of a week. Having just recovered from the latest Season 5 promo, I wake up on a rainy Saturday morning to discover not only the long overdue return of the black tank of doom, but that my favorite TV Show is filming in the Vampire Capitol of America, the City of the Dead, New Orleans.
The True Blood vampires were out in force last night for filming which must by now surely be from the climax to the new season. Along side the magnificent specimen that is Eric Northman, the lucky residents (and tourists) of New Orleans were treated to Russell (Denis O’Hare), Steve (Michael McMillian), Bill (Stephen Moyer). Nora (Lucy Griffiths), and authority members Carloyn Hennesy and Peter Mensah. It looks like a lot of fun was had by all, including Alex giving one of his co-stars a piggy back ride down the road. They filmed footage on the famous Bourbon Street surrounded by a huge crowd of onlookers (who luckily for us have been tweeting their photos across the net all night long). There was also a scene revolving around a city taxi cab that Eric and Bill seem to be trying to either get into or stop from leaving. I still can’t decide what I’m most excited about, the filming location or the return of the black tank of doom. Eric looked absolutely smokin’ hot, and even when he covered up with a black leather jacket, he must have burnt a hot hole in the Louisiana pavement. And the viking fangs made an appearance too. (seriously what more could a girl ask for to start her weekend?)
