SPOILERS: True Blood Season 5 Is The Year Of Pam

By  |  9 Comments

Ausiello at TVLine has previewed the first four episodes of True Blood season 5, and he’s ready to spill…sort of. He’s not getting super spoilery, but he does have good things to say about a fan favorite.

Question: Wait… you get to see True Blood episodes before they premiere!? —Kevin
Ausiello: Um, yeah. That’s kind of how this whole thing works. I’ve actually already screened the first four episodes of True Blood‘s new season and, based on what I’m seeing so far, I feel very comfortable declaring Season 5 the year of the Pam. Between the origin stuff with Eric and her present-day storyline with [SPOILER], Kristin Bauer van Straten’s vamp is practically in every other scene — and the show is the better for it. I’m starting the 2013 Emmy campaign for KBvS now. The woman is a national treasure! (The folks at Walmart will probably beg to differ after they watch Sunday’s premiere, but whatevs.)

Question: Anything else you can share on Tina Majorino’s True Blood arc? Love her. —Tim
Ausiello: Her first scene is with Eric and Bill. A shirtless Eric and a shirtless Bill.

Question: Can’t wait for True Blood this Sunday! Is it safe to say Russell is back to exact revenge on Bill and Eric? —Yvette
Ausiello: ”Russell doesn’t forget anything, but he’s also smart enough to know when to let bygones be bygones — for tactical and political reasons,” the king’s portrayer, Denis O’Hare, tells TVLine. “There may be a greater good.”

    Just rematched one of the promos definitely looks like Pam’s hand coming out if the ground…my money is on Pam as Tara’s maker!

    Pam and Eric are my reason to watch True Blood, I love their attitude towards life and this great news for me.

      None taken. Everybody have their preference.

      My top four are Pam, Tara, Sookie and Lala…these four are the reason I watch this show.
