True Blood fans your wait is over. Season 4 of the HBO fan fave is back tonight with all new episodes.
When we last left Bon Temps’ favorite telepath and newly discovered fae Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), she had detached herself from her first vampire love Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) after discovering their love affair had been a sham thanks to vampire queen Sophie Anne’s desire to “aquire” Sookie.
This revelation, forced upon her by the former viking and current vampire sherrif Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard), left Sookie visibly shaken. She fled the real world with the mysterious Claudine to join her fairy friends.
If you have read Charlaine Harris’ books which the series is based upon, you may have an inkling as to what to expect this season. Although the series has not followed the books to the letter, each of the previous seasons of True Blood have kept most of the important elements of the books. (Might we see a kinder, gentler Eric Northman this season?)
Both Entertainment Weekly and TV Guide have previewed the new season which will expand upon the witch storyline from season three and introduce a new love interest for shapeshifter and Sookie’s boss Sam Merlotte. Rumor has it that hunky werewolf Alcide Herveaux will be back and that Sookie’s best friend Tara will be a darker character than in the past.
Which storyline are you hoping to see played out this season? Let us know in the comments below.
