By  |  21 Comments

You worked hard at getting those 100K tweets up for Maker’s Day, Truebies. Now HBO has the reward that was promised. One page from the first episode of the season, Turn, Turn, Turn.

This is a SPOILER so if you don’t want to know, do not read any further!

 

True Blood – Ep. #501 Jason/Steve Scene I: 6/1/12 1.

INT. JASON’S HOUSE – NIGHT (N0)

A naked JASON stands OPPOSITE a FANGS-OUT STEVE NEWLIN in
the doorway, knowing better than to look him in the eye.

STEVE
Jason, I swear it to you and I
swear it to God: I am not here to
hurt you. All I want is to talk.

JASON
See, you say that, but I seen your
fangs. And I have been ‘round the
block enough times to know that
fangs are basically like twin hardons.
Hard-ons for trouble, or for
feedin’ on somebody. But never just
for talkin’. Not ever.

BLOOD TEARS start forming in the corners of Steve’s eyes.

STEVE
Please…? I’m scared. And I’ve got
no one else to turn to.

JASON
What about your followers? You got
thousands of ‘em out there lookin’
for you.

STEVE
And what do you think will happen
when they find out about this?
These are people I trained to kill
folks like me.

ON JASON, softening a little, as he realizes Steve’s in
quite the pickle.

ON STEVE, his FANGS RETRACT. He seems pleasantly surprised
by this fact.

STEVE (CONT’D)
Ah! There went the fangs! Look…

JASON
No way — I ain’t lookin’ at you.

STEVE
(hurt)
Why?

JASON
Because you’ll fuckin’ glamour me!

STEVE
Jason, a vampire has to be taught
how to glamour. And nobody taught
me anything.

JASON
Bullshit. What about your, um…

STEVE
(a disdainful laugh)
My “Maker”?

JASON
Yeah?

STEVE
My being turned was a punishment.
I’m not saying I didn’t deserve it,
but… I woke up in a hole in the
ground with a strange woman who
wouldn’t tell me anything. Didn’t
even give me her name. She just…
ran off.

ON JASON, Steve’s story touching a soft spot in his
armored resolve:

JASON
Seriously…?

(forgetting, looking
into Steve’s eyes)

She abandoned you?

ON STEVE, he’s got Jason. GLAMOUR SCORE kicks in.

STEVE
Hey, there.

JASON
(under his influence)
Hey.

STEVE
Invite me in, Jason.

JASON
‘Course. Come on in, Reverend…

OFF STEVE, entering…

INT. JASON’S HOUSE – NIGHT (N0)
Jason sits under a blanket on his barcalounger, still
under Steve’s influence. Steve applies the last piece of
ELECTRICAL TAPE to Jason’s mouth.

STEVE
I want you to hear what I’m about
to say with a clear and open mind,
so in a minute, I’m going to
release you from my influence. When
I do, all you’re going to remember
is that you invited me in, and you
asked me to put this tape over your
mouth, okay?

Jason nods “okay”. Steve takes a seat on the couch. Only
now does he release Jason from his influence.

STEVE (CONT’D)
Hello, Jason. Thank you so much for
inviting me into your home.

JASON
(through tape,
muffled)
Yrrrr wlcm, Rvrrnd Ewnln.

STEVE
There’s something I’ve been
gathering up the courage to tell
you ever since the day I found out
you were sleeping with my wife. You
see…
(deep breath, here
goes nothin’)
I didn’t care so much that you
slept with Sarah. What hurt was
that she got to sleep with you

ON JASON, his eyes saying what his mouth can’t: “Where
exactly are you goin’ with this, Reverend Newlin?”

STEVE (CONT’D)
But even before that — the whole
time you were at camp — all these
feelings were… building up inside
me. And I couldn’t admit it, not
even to myself. I think that’s why
I started acting the way I did, all
murderous and whatnot.

But now that I’ve been blessed with
immortality, I’ve finally got the
strength to say it:
(vulnerable)
I am a gay Vampire-American, and I
love you, Jason Stackhouse. And now
I’m going to let you speak…

Steve gently REMOVES THE TAPE from Jason’s mouth.

STEVE (CONT’D)
Sorry if this hurts…

JASON
Well, I asked for it, so…

STEVE
(expectant)
So…?

JASON
First off… I’m flattered. ‘Cause
that was without a doubt the nicest
“I love you” I’ve ever gotten from
anybody, male, female, or
otherwise. Second: I forgive you,
for actin’ all “murderous and
whatnot”. But I gotta be honest
with you, Reverend —
(pointing to himself)
— this dog don’t bark that way.

ON STEVE, crushed, angry, and embarrassed, all at once.

JASON (CONT’D)
Look, I’m sorr–

Unable to control himself, Steve DROPS FANGS once again.

STEVE
DO NOT! PITY ME!

JASON
I ain’t pityin’ you!

STEVE
LOVE ME!

JASON
It ain’t the way love works! You
can’t make yourself love somebod–

But Steve has already VAMP SPED across the room, and is
holding him in a half-Nelson, one of his hands covering
Jason’s mouth. Jason’s eyes register a 10 on the-freakedthe-
fuck-out-register, as Steve whispers into his ear:

STEVE
(seductive, scary)
My dead heart beats for you. The
least you could do is try.

Acting on impulse alone, Steve SLIDES THE TIPS OF HIS
FANGS ALONG JASON’S NECK, savoring him, collecting
memories and smells of this moment. Jason struggles, but
to no avail — Steve’s too strong.

True Blood – Ep. #501 Jason/Steve Scene II: 6/1/12 3.
CONTINUED: (2)

What say you, Truebies? Is Newlin about to “turn” Jason? I’m thinking that now would have been a great time for Jason to turn into a half were-panther or all that Hotshot stuff was for naught.

Over-night fan (almost literally) of the Sookie Stackhouse series since early 2008. Co-owner of True-Blood.net. Anxiously anticipating season 6.

    Am I the only one who thinks that scene sounded a little fanfic-y. I have to wonder how that scene will actually play out, but the majority of it will obviously be the same.
    But it’s clearly going to be fun to watch. Newlin is gay, I so do not have to remove the big shocked look from my face.

    Jessica will sense Jason’s fear and come save him :OP

      Great minds Eaglemom!!

      I think so, too. That Jessica will save the day. I don’t think Steve intends to turn Jason, only drink. What a great story line. Gay Steve obsesses over Stackhouse. Funny. Riveting.

    ***PURE SPECULATION***

    Jessica, sensing Jason’s fear, breaks down Jason’s front door.

    Taken by surprise, Rev. Newlin is no match for Jessica.

    Rev. Newlin is subdued, Jason is saved and Jessica calls Bill.

      I like Dee’s scenario the best, and also most likely to happen…hopefully for Jason…lol. I also agree with Ellen, not too surprised about Steve being gay. Don’t think it was Pam Niecey…..she would’t have taught him how to glamour him…Pam or Eric would’ve just ripped his spine out…Hey…betcha Russell Edgington did it and Steve broke him out of the cement and taught him how to Glamour…..

        According to Denis O’Hare, the person who freed him is not someone we know yet.

        • Dee

          June 8, 2012 at 12:32 pm

          I’m wondering if The Authority turned Rev Newlin.

    I hope Pam turned him!

    • Gill Davies

      I think that Pam would have loved to get her hands on Steve – she is big on revenge! Steve silvered Eric in front of slavering vampire-haters in the Fellowship of the Sun chapel, and was going to sacrifice him at dawn as an example. So I think that if Pam had captured Steve, her revenge would have been most creative, but I doubt that it would include the ‘honour’ of turning him into a vampire… more likely rotting in her dungeon under Fangtasia, where Eric could join in on the fun.

      Steve doesn’t ever tell the truth, so his version of his turning is probably false. He is such a slimy character – I adore his craftiness. Sadly, us Aussies will not get to see episode 1 until the 17th – so I will envy you all on the 10th!

    I agree with Ellen. Steve is…GAY(insert sarcastic eyeroll here)???!! I saw Denis O’Hare talking about Russell falling unexpectedly in love with somebody-maybe it’s Steve.

    • Blomman

      And maybe thats why Talbot wasent that happy with Russell going on trips ?

    Newlin said it was a womyn. My guess is Nora.

    Personally, I thought it was blatantly obvious in season 2 that Steve had the hots for Jason. Especially at times when it seemed Sarah and Steve where vying for his attention.
    … And it’s always the ones who doth protesteth too much!

  8. Neonsky

    June 8, 2012 at 12:56 pm

    Steve is Gay! I don’t get the part of his intrest in Jason when he neever showed any when he was his deciple?

    • Susbraska

      June 8, 2012 at 3:08 pm

      I think the storyline foreshadowed it. That Steve Newlin is gay, now a homosexual vamp. Think ‘let me show you my arsenal,’ and ‘hop in the jeep,’ and the invitation to stay in the Big House. The temptation of sin. Fanatical beliefs. Great character development!

    • Mel

      June 8, 2012 at 3:46 pm

      I disagree; he was already slightly obsessed with Jason in season 2.

  9. Patrick

    June 8, 2012 at 5:53 pm

    This will be great! I knew it!!!! Since Season 2 I knew Steve had a hard-on for Jason! Can’t wait for this!

    Hilarious! Gay Steve. Personally i think there will be massive carnage in the first scene, and a very bloody, fanged Russy Baby will mug at the camera going, “I’m baaaaaaack” and CUT!

  11. Blomman

    June 9, 2012 at 7:48 am

    If this is true , that Steve is gay . I think it will be hilarious ! and the produsers , cast and writhers of the show … Will truly be apart of a great tv-show history ! . GO Allan Ball 🙂
