Sundays with Neubie the Truebie
Finally, tonight is the night we've been waiting for Truebies!!
I don't know about you but I've been worrying about Bill since last summer. What has he become after the whole Lillith debacle? I'm hoping for the return of my favorite southern gentleman vampire. Although I did enjoy his stint as the King before he got sucked into all that Authority nonsense. His storyline last year strayed so far away from the books that it's hard to speculate what will happen. This article from TV Guide has some great info on what we may seen from Bill/Billith this Season along with our Bon Temps friends.
Rutger Hauer joins the cast this season as Sookie and Jason's faerie great-grandfather, Niall. In the books, Niall is a complex character. He always has Sookie's best interests at heart but sometimes his methods can be a little off-putting and his alliances are sometimes murky. With the appearance of evil vampire Warlow last season, it will be interesting to see if he/she/it is revealed to be a red herring and actually not the cause of Sookie's parent's deaths. In the books, the Stackhouse's were killed by bad faeries and I'd hate to see this plot point change.
A new character named Amelia also joins the show this season but I haven't been able to confirm whether or not this Amelia is based on Amelia Broadway from the books. In the books, Sookie meets her pal in New Orleans and she returns to Bon Temps with her to escape her coven after a spell gone wrong. Amelia had somehow turned her boyfriend Bob into a cat and is unable to return him to human form. Now, that is a funny tale that I'd like to see on screen.
Last season had a lot of darkness to it and I'd light to see some lighter moments and mo romantic moments return this season. Speaking of romance, Tara better not mess things up with Pam (like she has ruined every other relationship she was in).
What about you guys? What do you hope to see this season? Share with me and come back next week to discuss the premiere!
