Hmmm, couple of interesting new tidbits from the episode Stephen Moyer directed. Spoilery bits beneath the Read More tag.
Juicy excerpts (my emphasis):
“Bill has had this crazy arc,” says the British actor. “He’s gone from this innocent sort of old-fashioned, slightly enigmatic Heathcliffian … character, to somebody who is revealed as this dark malevolent force who’s been hiding all of this stuff this whole time.”
After Moyer shadowed True Blood directors last year, Ball decided the actor was ready. “It’s a very strong episode,” says Ball. “He directed a sex scene that might be the hottest sex scene we’ve ever had on the show.”
“I didn’t get the easiest of episodes,” concedes Moyer, who was charged with Episode 8, which involves complicated flashbacks.
To refresh our memories, this is how episode 8 is described: Episode #56 (5.08): “Somebody That I Used to Know”: The Authority revels in a new direction; Sookie and Jason visit the site of their parents’ deaths; Luna gets stuck on Sam. (Written by Mark Hudis; directed by Stephen Moyer.) This is also the episode that includes a flashback to 1931 Sarah Compton, and Sookie and Jason visit the scene of their parents’ death.
I’m wondering if the “Luna gets stuck on Sam” line is some kind of naughty pun about the sex.
