True Blood‘s fifth season has been pretty wild as it is, but I have a feeling some of the biggest twists are yet to come. So far the overarching plot threads have dealt mostly with character elements and intrigue, with a smaller supernatural footprint. This is not to say that the supernatural is any less pervasive than usual in the True Blood universe, but there is less a sense of a looming and mysterious ‘force’this year. The motivating factors, insanity, religion, politics, love, wounded friendship, are all more earthbound than usual … for now. I’m willing to gamble things are going to get pretty weird before True Blood‘s fifth season is up. Here are some of my predictions, sound off in the comments and lay yours on me. As always, don’t forget to tune in for a brand episode of True Blood ‘Let’s Boot and Rally’ this Sunday, July 8th on HBO at 9pm EST.
Anna Paquin was pregnant during the filming of season five, but you’d never know it. True Blood has used body doubles to keep the pregnancy off frame, but will Paquin and co-star Stephen Moyer’s unborn make an appearance? If a Sookie pregnancy were written into the True Blood storyline Alcide would be the likely dad, since Vampires can’t reproduce.
If Sookie does give birth to a were-baby this could play into the Pack politics and Alcide’s refusal to take over as pack leader. It seems like that storyline is far from over, and with the arrival of a new addition to Alcide’s bloodline, who knows what direction it could go in.
