Hey fellow Fang Bangers! The second True Blood minisode has finally hit the airwaves, and it’s a doozy! This one features Newbie Vampire Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) on a night out at the local casino. By the way, if you haven’t viewed the first minisode yet, you can do so, by clicking here.
If you recall, Jessica was a god-fearing teen from an abusive family, who Old Vampire Bill was forced to turn by the Vampire Council at the end of Season 1, as his punishment for killing one of his own kind.
Vampire Jessica started off the show as your typically bratty and rebellious teen, a real thorn in Vampire Bill’s side. But then, during Season 2, she met the sweet and virginal Hoyt Fortenberry (played by the adorable Jim Parrack) . . . and the two entered into a relationship that was about as healthy and innocent as a coupling between a human and a bloodsucker can get!
Unfortunately, toward the end of Season 2, things went sour for these two, when Jessica sort of / kind of tried to eat Hoyt’s closed-minded vampire- hating mom.
So, Hoyt dumped Jessica. And, although he would eventually reconsider, it seemed to be too late. Our Scorned Newbie was already off on a TOTAL blood rampage! Presumably, this minisode kicks off where Season 2 left off, with a hungry Jessica out on the prowl. There’s some REAL strong language in this one, so put the kiddies to bed before watching, please . . .
(By the way, if for any reason they disable the below video, you can also catch this new minisode at Movieweb, by clicking here or Daily Motion, by clicking here.)
What did you think? Pretty intense, huh? I don’t know about you guys, but I kind of preferred this one to the first minisode. It was a bit meatier and more revealing. Plus, the fun twist at the end was one I didn’t necessarily see coming.
True Blood returns to HBO on June 13th. Be there, or be eaten by vampires . . .

Thanks for the update. I’d forget to even look for these minisodes of True Blood. They’re a good idea because they get me in the mood for the show. I’m glad to see that Jessica is growing up a bit. They were making her too much of a spoiled whiny teenager and she was getting on my nerve. (Although I might be a bit whiny if someone made me into a vampire….it seems pretty gruesome.) In this minisode Jessica is looking more adult and more dangerous. Much better.
I agree Amazon Annie. If this is the direction in which they are taking the Jessica character, it is a good one.
The way they left things at the end of Season 2, they really could have gone either way with her (either way, meaning “bat sh&t crazy killer” or “good vampire”). It looks like Vampire Jessica will straddle the line between the two, and that will be fun to watch.
Of course, as the writers of the show have reminded us here, Jessica is still a perpetual teenager, as evidenced by that “line” she “requests” that the stranger utter upon exiting the casino. HILARIOUS!
HBO has done a great job, so far, in marketing what looks like it will be an excellent season. I can’t wait!
I LOVE TRUE BLOOD! THANKS FOR POSTING THIS VIDEO! I CAN’T WAIT FOR THE SEASON TO BEGIN!
Thanks so much for stopping by and posting, Ellen! I can’t wait for the True Blood Season 3 to begin, either! June 13th is simply too far away! I’m going to keep posting these minisodes as I find them, so keep checking back. There will be more where this came from! 🙂
