Nelsan Ellis, Kevin Alejandro Tease True Blood Season Finale

By  |  1 Comment

Nelsan Ellis and Kevin Alejandro are talking about the True Blood season finale in a pair of new interviews. The fan-favorite on-screen couple sat down with different outlets to tease us with nuggets about the episode airing Sunday.

WARNING: Minor spoilers ahead!

Kevin Alejandro told WonderWall:

Wonderwall: What can fans look forward to from the season finale?

Kevin Alejandro: Well, actually last weekend’s episode read as a season finale. It could have very easily been the season finale. It was so good. We all thought when we saw it, and then all of a sudden they gave us the script for the actual season finale and it blew us out of the water. So, you can expect to be completely surprised in all different angles of the show. It’s more captivating and will leave you on the edge of your seats. And I guarantee you, eyebrows will be raised.

WW: Will we be left with a lot of questions or will things tie up nicely?

KA: A little bit of both. Definitely some things will get resolved and a lot of stuff is going to be left hanging in the air, where you’re just going to be like, “What the hell?” Now I gotta wait all these months again; I gotta wait till next year to watch it. But that’s what makes “True Blood” great, I think.

Nelsan Ellis chatted with Vulture at Fashion’s Night Out:

Ellis claims that his current True Blood arc, where Lafayette finds himself possessed by the witch Marnie, wasn’t an easy thing to film. “Alan Ball told me I couldn’t try to talk like her, and I was like, ‘Really?’ So that was challenging. ‘Who do I act like?’ ‘Not her.’ I had to create something else … We’ll see what the fans say about it. The most exciting part of the episode isn’t me, though — it’s the cliffhangers.”

But True Blood always ends its seasons with big cliffhangers! “No,” said Ellis gravely. “This year, it’s on a different scale. When we all read the script, we were like, ‘What?!’ The cliffhangers take it to another level.” Are we getting something akin to the first season finale, where we thought that Lafayette had perished in the final minutes? “I can’t give it away, but something like that, except, I can’t say, but something really big on that level is going to happen.” He laughed. “You’ll see, and it’ll throw you for a loop, and then you all will have to wait for eight months!”
