Who Let Russell Out?

Nothing new on my favorite vampire today but there’s a few more clues emerging about when we will find out who is responsible for unleashing my second favorite good thing back into the Bon Temps world. Dennis O’Hare has given a little spoiler to E! today.

Kate A.: True Blood scoop! Who brought Russell back?
Excellent question! Let’s ask him, shall we? “It’s somebody who nobody knows yet,” Dennis O’Hare tells us. “It’s a surprising character. And I think you get a hint in episode two, and then a big hint in episode five.” One thing we do know for sure: Russell did not grow softer while buried in the cement…except for one thing. “He’s still vicious, he’s still dangerous, he’s still highly charming, but they added all this stuff to him. We get to see him fall in love!” Awww! Ain’t nothing sweeter than a former vampire king falling in love, right?

So keep your eyes and ears alert for episode 2 and the first hint on who done it. As it’s someone we haven’t seen before that rules out Pam (phew!). I’m still going with Salome. Russell is the only character in the show old enough to be her daddy. Being part of the authority and possibly even Roman’s girlfriend are slightly pouring rain on my theory parade, but she could just be one hell of a double agent. Besides if she’s going to be having an intimate moment with Bill Compton, she’s obviously not that loyal and obedient to her Authority boss! And she’d certainly fit those elegent gloved hands spied in the latest promo very well.

Other possibilities could be Nora (nah – anyone who loves Eric wouldn’t let his arch-nemesis out) or Authority member Rosalyn (who we don’t yet know much about). And who is going to be the lucky guy Russell falls in love with? Someone has already speculated Steve Newlin. Please, please, please let it be Steve Newlin!

Let us know who you think Russell’s little helper is, and who is the lucky new object of his affection?



 A couple of little Sookie snippets.

Firstly on her relationship with the newly “whatever” Tara. Rutina Wesley gave a few clues to TV Guide.

Of course there’s also the question of what Sookie and Tara’s friendship will be like after these events, and Wesley did say that friendship “will be significantly different”: “That’s going to be the interesting part to watch: Tara’s reaction to Sookie and Sookie’s reaction to Tara. All I can say is it’s charged.” So not only will Sookie be dealing with Russell after her blood and however Tara does return, she’ll also be dealing with changes on a personal level. How will this experience change Tara’s views of everything? What will this mean for their friendship when the season ends? So much can happen before the finale, and it’s likely that will include what happens between Sookie and Tara—and everyone else who is affected by the changes coming.


And Alan Ball spoke to Access Hollywood about how Anna’s pregnancy is being  handled as they film the final episodes of season 5.

“So, in the last few episodes, Sookie’s holding a big purse in front of her at all times. I actually heard from the costume designer about midway through the season, she went, ‘Sookie can’t wear a Merlotte’s T-shirt anymore.’ And I went, ‘Well, it’s a good thing Sookie isn’t really at Merlotte’s anymore, she’s basically trying to save the world.’ So, we’ll put her in loose-fitting, save the world outfits.”

  1. After reading the above snippets, I truely don’t have any answers, the only thing I can say is we will find out once the season gets rolling. The only thing I hope for thats’ mentioned above, is that I hope that Tara is a much changed character toward the good, I don’t think I can stand anymore of “Tara Drama” on this show, as I am so very tired of her screaming and ranting and raving…..I shutter to think what she’ll be like this season, I’m so over her character.

    Who knows who Russell will fall in love with????? I kinda hope its’ someone on the Authority, as that would really mess up his mantra of, “F*ck the Authority”.

    I am getting kinda curious and excitied for the start of the show. I still hold out hope that somehow they will turn this trainwreck of a show around and make it back to an award winning show once again.

  2. yeah I think its Salome, Beehls new lover *eyeroll*, and that would put bill into the limelight again because russel probably told her to seduce billy boy meh…

  3. Where are we getting that Bill and Salome are going to have a thing this season? Because of that one little clip where she had him cornered in the trailer? That hardly means anything, not that I would care if that was the case. But she’s supposedly with Roman, and I thought she was going to be involved with Nora? This chick seems to get around, I don’t care what she does as long as she doesn’t get her claws in Eric.

    • You know Alan Ball always gonna have Bill get some on TB whether its one or two women ….Bill not going to go a season and not ne naked ….Salome is kinda crazy so it sounds like another Lorena to me. I hope the only love scene Eric has is flashback with Pam.

      • he is also with Nora this season, also Alex interview on the red carpet kind of sounded like it… the interviewer was calling it incest. hello? They are not blood related, Beehl was having sex with his great great gr. grandaaughter, that was disgusting; and also with his vampire mother…

        • Eric only kisses Nora….Lucy Griffiths the actress says she is not having any romantic scenes as of the first eight episodes …..I don’t know where you keep getting that Eric is having a fling with Nora….outside of that kiss that’s seems to be it.Alex never said he was having a thing with Nora..

          • We don’t know what happens after the first eight episodes, you can still have sex with someone and not have it be romantic. The interview with Alex makes it seem like more might be going on, but we’ll just have to wait and see. I don’t think it would be anything serious.

  4. Love your ideas on Salome! With Claude coming to town I wonder if that is who Russell will fall for…another vamp/fairy love story…lol!

  5. all i know is that ill be canceling my subscription after GOT. I’ll change my mind if AB has a tv ready to ship to my house, because i know i’ll smash mine while watching the beehl show.

  6. I am so happy Russell’ back. He was one of the best things about season 3, funny and deadly and rolling his eyes at Sookie’s love life, ha ha

  7. first things first i am getting sick about the whole AP thing with the baby and secondly i think alcide was the one who dug up Russell so he could just get it on with sookie and i can’t see pam doing the deed because she’s nothing if loyal to eric
