Title for 6.4 *spoilers*

The Spoiler Fairy at SpoilerTV dropped a couple of details about True Blood 6.4.  Below the Read More!

From the Spoiler Fairy at SpoilerTV on 2/25/13:

True Blood episode 6.04 will be called, “I’m Your Man,” and 2 possibly-recurring roles are being cast for it: LAVTF Team Commander (I’m guessing that LAVTF stands for “Louisiana Vampire Task Force”) , who prepares to attack a house with his crew; and Security Chief, whose becomes concerned for his employer when a vampire pays a visit.

Looking at the song options for “I’m Your Man,” we have two possibilites.  The first is a version done by Wham! with George Michael that doesn’t have that True Blood vibe that is so identifiable.  However, the version written by Leonard Cohen sounds like it could be on the money!

I’m Your Man written and performed by Leonhard Cohen — with lyrics in the video!

If you want a lover
I’ll do anything you ask me to
And if you want another kind of love
I’ll wear a mask for you
If you want a partner, take my hand, or
If you want to strike me down in anger
Here I stand
I’m your man

If you want a boxer
I will step into the ring for you
And if you want a doctor
I’ll examine every inch of you
If you want a driver, climb inside
Or if you want to take me for a ride
You know you can
I’m your man

Ah, the moon’s too bright
The chain’s too tight
The beast won’t go to sleep
I’ve been running through
These promises to you
That I made and I could not keep

Ah, but a man never got a woman back
Not by begging on his knees
Or I’d crawl to you baby
And I’d fall at your feet
And I’d howl at your beauty
Like a dog in heat
And I’d claw at your heart
And I’d tear at your sheet
I’d say please, please
I’m your man

And if you’ve got to sleep a moment on the road
I will steer for you
And if you want to work the street alone
I’ll disappear for you
If you want a father for your child
Or only want to walk with me a while
Across the sand
I’m your man

If you want a lover
I’ll do anything that you ask me to
And if you want another kind of love
I’ll wear a mask for you

My thoughts: Okay, this sounds seriously shippy.  Could we be getting some romantic action at what will be the mid-season point?  While there wasn’t much romantic action in season 5, by season 4, we had Eric and Sookie’s first real kiss on the front porch.  Could we be getting some Sooric? I have to say, I would welcome some romance but it makes me too nervous if they are too happy too quickly since that fairly screams “bumps on the road to true love coming!” On the other hand, the howling/dog motif could mean something about Alcide.  Any guesses or insights?

  1. You should make it clear that Leonard Cohen was the original writer for this. I saw him sing it live – he’s almost 80 and he still croons a serious panty warmer.
