E! Online continues to surprise us by sharing actual teasers for True Blood season 5 from the red carpet premiere. Today they have Kevin Alejandro talking about Jesus and Lafayette, and Scott Foley spilling a bit more about Patrick and Terry.
Janea in Placentia, Calif.: I was absolutely devastated for Lafayette last year when Jesus died. I don’t think he can handle losing both Tara and Jesus!
Come on, y’all, this is True Blood! Just because someone “dies” doesn’t mean they’re gone for good, right? We caught up with the sexy nurse himself, Kevin Alejandro, and he tells us audiences could be seeing this brujo again. “My character definitely has a role in this season, but I can’t tell you how.” Alejandro teased. “I’ll tell you this, the death of Jesus really has affected Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) in a very dramatic way, so you can expect to see how he deals with that and how it affects the other people around him. There’s a lot more depth to Lafayette that audience is in store for, hope you’re ready for it!” Please, we’ve been ready for months!
Kandice in Austin: Can I try to glamour you into giving us some True Blood scoop?!
Well you could try, but we were going to give it up anyways! We’ve seen vampires, witches, werewolves and fairies, but now there’s a new kind of mythical being in Bon Temps. At the end of last season, we met Patrick (Scott Foley), Terry’s commanding officer in Iraq, who will be heavily involved in this season’s drama. Foley explains, “We’re going to see a lot of Terry figuring out who he is and coming to grips with what he has done in is past, especially over in Iraq. And we’re going to find out whether Terry and Arlene stay together.” But what is it about Patrick that makes him so important? Foley teases, “I bring in a substantial supernatural element to the show that hasn’t been seen yet.”
A new supernatural element? We’ve been speculating that Terry and Patrick were up against a vengeful ghost, but we’ve already seen that. What could it be?
