Tonight, the True Blood cast held a panel session at Comic-Con 2010 in San Diego. I wasn’t there . . .
But I DID manage to snag a copy of the BRAND NEW trailer for the second half of Season 3, which was released during the panel session . . .
And, of course, it was AWESOME! Check it out . . .
OK. It’s time to ANALYZE THE HELL OUT OF THIS THING! So, remove your jaw from the floor, retract your fangs, put your shirt (and pants) back on, and let’s get to it, shall we?
:07 – I don’t know about you, but this has always been how I preferred my Vampire Bill: Hot, Shirtless and Chained to the Floor where he can’t get in the way of the inevitable Sookie / Eric lovefest going on nearby.
:08 – Who knew that when Franklin Mott bought Tara that UGLY ASS NIGHTY / WEDDING DRESS (probably back in the early 1800’s), he had also purchased a matching one for HIMSELF!
(At least he finally SHAVED though. That morning stubble must have been HELL to wake up next to . . . and I’m not talking about the one in his pants. . . )
:16 – It looks like Creepy J.J. from Big Love the Magister has got Pam! That’s not good . . .
:17 – Hey, Vampire Bill! That’s a nice tan your sporting! How did . . . wait . . . uh oh!
:28 – ERIC: “I don’t know what it is. But I know it is quite valuable.”
Look how lovingly Sookie looks at Eric, even when he is trying to pawn her off on the Big Gay Vampire King, like she’s some early 19th-century antique (Vampire Bill?). But seriously, can you blame her? Have you SEEN what Vampire Eric looks like in that Baby Blue Panty Dropper Sweater of his? He can sell ME to the highest bidder, ANYTIME!
:32 – Shirtless Tommy Mickens (Marshall Allman) – Not really my cup of tea, personally. But someone found this blog by searching for THIS EXACT IMAGE. And I DO hate to disappoint my readers . . . So, here you go!
:35 – OK. I’m confused. When did I STOP watching the True Blood trailer, and randomly switch over to outtakes from the movie, Deliverance?
(Cringes, as “Dueling Banjos” plays in the background.)
:37 – Question: When white trash gets cleaned up, is it called “White-Washed Trash?”
(I didn’t like that comment Mommy Mickens made about Sam not being “family,” one bit, by the way. But it DOES confirm what I always thought about her character. Hint: It rhymes with “masshole.”)
:41 – SHIRTLESS STACKHOUSE ALERT! SHIRTLESS STACKHOUSE ALERT!
It looks like him and Crystal will be getting VERY CLOSE, VERY FAST . . . and that her family doesn’t approve of the coupling AT ALL. Awww . . . it’s like Romeo and Juliet . . .
. . . if Romeo and Juliet took place in a trailer park in Louisianna . . .
:43 – Way to go Jason! Whipping out the BIG GUNS! (And I’m NOT talking about artillery . . .)
:53 – I just LOVE when Vampire Eric gets all up in Sookie’s personal space . . . and so does SHE!
(Note: I’m pointedly choosing to IGNORE that MEAN thing Eric said to Sookie in this scene, because his body language here CLEARLY implies otherwise . . .)
:54 – Speaking of foreplay . . .
1:00 – Of course, it wouldn’t be a True Blood trailer without at least one, “BEEEEEEEEELLLLLL!”
1:04 – It’s nice to see our former BFF’s, Sookie and Tara, bonding again. It’s also REALLY NICE to see Tara (1) out of captivity; (2) in the sun (It means she’s not a vampire yet.); and (3) dressed in normal clothes from the 21st Century . . .
1:09 – First Deliverance, now The Matrix? I think this trailer is broken . . .
(Actually, I’m pretty sure that Leather Chick is Vampire Spokesperson Nan from Season 2 . . .)
1:13 – White fur? Red glowing eyes? Ladies and gentlemen, I think we have just met our first WERE-VAMPIRE!
(Some vampire lore states that if a person consumes enough vampire blood, he or she can become a vampire without actually . . . you know . . . dying. If that’s true HERE, and all those werewolves have been consuming Big Gay Vampire King Russell’s blood for lord knows how long, this is some SERIOUISLY BAD NEWS for Sookie and Co.)
1:14 – ALCIDE: “I don’t take orders from vamps!”
Oooh, Alcide is SEXY when he’s angry! And he’s sticking it to Vampire Bill too . . . which makes it even hotter.
(By the way, I heard they just recently announced that Joe Manganiello, who plays Alcide, has officially been awarded SEASON REGULAR status!)
Here’s a little something to help you celebrate this AMAZING news!
And another SOMETHING . . .
1:19 – SOOKIE: “If I knew what was best for me, I would have fallen in love with someone like you.”
(Get in line, Sookie! Get in line . . .)
1:24 – SOOKIE: “GET . . . OUT . . . OF MY HOUSE . . . B*TCH!”
YEAH! You go, Bad Ass Commando Sookie!
Be afraid, Trashy Debbie She-Mullet! Be VERY afraid!
1:34 – Don’t you just HATE IT when you get stuck in the ceiling, next to the multi-million dollar chandelier! I know I do . . .
1:47 – You know, for some reason, every time I see Lorena, I get that song by Flo Rida stuck in my head. “You spin my head right round, right round, when you go down, when you go down, down.”
I can’t imagine why . . .
1:53 – Poor Sookie! If this was any other character on this show, a picture like this would have me really worried. But it’s SOOKIE . . . so, I’m not.
(No Sookie = No True Blood, and if the ratings are any indication, this show is going to be around for a LONG, LONG time! Therefore, I’m thinking our girl is going to be just fine. Just a little hunch I have . . .)
1:57 – Hey, I don’t like this Dream Sequence! A Dream Sequence without a shirtless male in it, is like . . . well . . . I don’t know what it’s like . . . something LAME though, that’s for sure!
2:01 – Here is our first glimpse of Claudine (played by Lara Pulver). She was a fairly important character in the latter half of Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse Book series. Unfortunately, I can’t TELL you what role she plays in Sookie’s life, because I don’t want to spoil it for you. I CAN show it to you though . . .
(Warning: Spoilerific picture, below.)
And there you have it. The new True Blood trailer in a nutshell. So, what did you think?
