Ryan Kwanten Teases True Blood Season Finale Cliffhanger

By  |  3 Comments

TV Guide has a new interview with Ryan Kwanten as we head into the final two episodes of True Blood season 5. Ryan tries to avoid spoiling us, but he gives us just enough information to get us excited!

Now that they know Sookie (Anna Paquin) is essentially promised to a centuries-old vampire in that contract, what will Jason do to protect her?
 Anything. He’s willing to put the relationship with Jessica on hold, if not put it aside completely, for the only remaining member of his family, which I think is a noble thing for Jason. You really see the guy, even though he does ridiculously stupid things, there is a heart underneath it all and a big one, and he realizes that this is his last chance to keep the family together.

We see in the promos that Jason will interact with Russell (Denis O’Hare), who’s on the hunt for faerie blood. What part will Jason play in that?
Well, he’s the only one that knows where they are, so Russell needs Jason to get that elusive blood that he needs, the faerie blood, so he plays a very big part.

What can you tell us about the season finale and what role Jason plays in it?
Kwanten: Well, a very big role. Like I said before, it’s his family he’s fighting for. It’s the town. It’s for the answers to his parents dying. It’s pretty much do or die for Jason. This finale actually takes us all the way up to a huge cliff-hanger in [the final episode] where you’re not quite sure who’s going to live and who’s going to die. In previous seasons, we had the so-called cliff-hanger in either Episode 10 or 11 and then, Episode 12 is answering that cliff-hanger and then setting up the new season, whereas this one very much leaves us on a big “Oh, my God,” moment.

In the rest of the interview, he talks a little bit about Jason’s character growth this season, his relationships with Jessica and Hoyt, and that clip from the preview showing Jason in a grave with Jessica.

    Out of all of his answers, I’m mostly excited about seeing Sookie, Tara, and Jason together again. I mean I’m definitely looking forward to the next two episodes, but I got even more excited reading that they will probably be teaming up and whatnot. I hope that it’s true.
