William Keck at TVGuide.com has our first look at True Blood‘s latest scary animal: a panther. No one’s saying much, but bookies can piece this together. Haven’t read the books yet? Don’t worry, we’ll decipher the photo for you. The people of Hotshot – the little town where we met Calvin Norris and Crystal Norris during the meth bust – are weres. In fact, they’re werepanthers. We’re going to speculate that this gorgeous girl is Crystal Norris, having revealed herself to Jason. Will this storyline play out with the same results as the books? We’re thinking Jason’s choice of that hat with the panther applique wasn’t by chance.
As excited as I am that True Blood is using real wolves and panthers, I have to admit that those days on set would be pretty scary!
