Our friend Michael Ausiello’s latest spoiler chat has a clue about the possible big bad for True Blood season 7, and I’m guessing the would-be villain may be related to someone who met their death at the end of last season.
Question: Do you know if we’re going to meet any of the beloved but sadly departed characters of the past on True Blood‘s final season? If not, do you have any other scoops? —Kenn
Ausiello: No word yet on any Nights of the Living Dead, but I can tell you that we’re getting what sounds like a new Big Bad in Mr. Gus. Though he’s a Japanese businessman, he’s apparently been so Americanized that he’d make J.R. Ewing seem Asian. (By which we mean he rocks a 10-gallon hat and speaks with a drawl.) Oh, and thanks to a business back-stab, he’s got a thirst for vengeance that’s described as “infinite.” So, while he’ll appear to be middle-aged, I have a hunch he’s immortal.
Anyone else wondering if our Japanese businessman friend could be a relative of the late Ms. Suzuki, who met her end so brutally at the pointed end of Sarah Newlin’s stilettos? Maybe he’s the reason one of the destroyed Tru-Blood plants was located in Texas.
