True Blood Season 5 Bonus Clip Sparks Theories For Season 6
Well that was fast. Hot on the finish of True Blood season 5 comes a finale bonus clip that gives a hint to the substance of season 6, and inspires more than a couple of wild theories. In the scene, Nora, Pam, Jess, Tara, and Jason ride the Authority elevator towards the surface where they expect to run into resistance. After offing a Vamp, Jason, still in his semi-daze, makes the comment "I'm coming for you Warlow." Nora recognizes the name immediately and asks "What do you know about Warlow?!". Oh, boy. You can see the clip on HBOGO.com if you are an HBO subscriber, be sure to watch with interactive features for even more video.
So it would seem that True Blood season 6 will center on Warlow, the Vampire that was promised the first born Fae offspring of the Stackhouse clan, AKA Sookie. So forget the head-fake that suggested Warlow might actually be Russell Edgington, which never really panned out anyways, and get ready to meet Warlow in season 6 of True Blood, or have we met him already?
I'm thinking Warlow was a Vampire with a flair for alchemy and magic. A Vampire witch. Since we have seen him in spectral form already, it's safe to say Warlow has been stuck in some kind of alternate dimension since the beginning of True Blood, which would explain why he hasn't been a threat until now.
Notice how the Warlow story seems to pick up at the same time the Authority begins experimenting with what they think is real Lilith blood? And while the stoned Vamps of the Authority couldn't see it, it was pretty clear to us that whatever was haunting that blood didn't care who drank it as long as someone did. Roman, as it turns out, was truly the strongest of the Authority vampires as he resisted the urge to drink and always shared his own blood in tribute to Lilith. Once he was eliminated, the younger vamps were soon drawn in by the power that lives within the blood. An obvious 'living' power, or more appropriately, maybe, undead power.
If you haven't guessed by now, Bill Compton is probably Warlow. We'll have to wait for season 6 of True Blood to be certain, but given the context of the clip as a primer for next year it's hard to think of it any other way. What do you think?
