So as promised HBO aired a new trailer on Sunday night before Game Of Thrones. What I don’t understand is why they are calling it Trailer 1 when they already released a previous one but hey it’s their world … we just visit it … A LOT!
I have watched, re-watched, and then watched a few more times just looking for clues about what we can come to expect in Season 5 …. so watch the video and then scroll down for my thoughts and speculations about what we might have to look forward to. Warning these are just MY thoughts!! I make no claim to their accuracy, and obviously there will be possible spoilers!! (Well these days you just have to cover that stuff *rolls eyes*)
Firstly let me start by saying YAY!!!!!!! It looks like the vampires are finally back in town … and by town I mean they are the main focus of what is after all supposed to be a vampire based show. I feel the last couple of seasons Alan Ball and team seem to have lost sight of that whilst they bring in all the other supernatural elements.
I love from the clips that it looks like the vampires are embracing their real selves (or if nothing else we will get some awesome vampy flashbacks …. Eric in that suit?? Yes please!! We will take a bit more of that!!!) Pam and Eric in bed?? Now what was that all about? I would say maybe another flashback but hairstyles are looking rather current.
Humans should be farmed like cattle … hmmm that is a little turn around from the ex Reverend. Hope we get to find out who turned him. Just goes to show you though asshole in life makes for an asshole vampire! Even then an asshole vampire is always more interesting … especially on a killing spree.
Sookie is generally not on anyone’s good side ….. oh well suck it up cupcake! Lala calls her the angel of death (Perhaps over Tara being dead … please stay dead Tara … dead dead, not undead …… Alcide bitches at her for always being in trouble (I am guessing that even though he abjured Debbie he still wasn’t too impressed by the shotgun demise at Sookie’s hands) and even Bill has decided that maybe using Sookie rather than giving her a choice is a good idea. Ooooh ….. Alan Ball are you finally letting Eric show us a glimpse from the books??? On that I won’t hold my breath but it would certainly be amusing.
The new “Authority” look like they enjoy their vampire status so that is good but what is not clear is whether they are teaming up with Bill and Eric to go after Russell (Oh I do love a little KRE … he is just so unhinged), or whether it is more of a free for all with everyone against everyone.
All I can say is that having seen this June 10th cannot get here soon enough for me!!!!
