Two promos have come out in recent weeks and one of them finally has (unless I’m seeing things) Eric in it!
UPDATE: I wasn’t seeing things….but the second clip turns out to be a fan-made promo, not an official one. Can you feel my disappointment? You should be able to. *sigh*
First, a short one, featuring Sookie’s voice over talking about how the government has abandoned the people of Bon Temps.
And second, a longer clip that I think has our first glimpse of Eric at the 44 second mark, with what looks to me like darker hair and a blue tooth headset on. UPDATED to note that the clip has been identified from “The Giver.” Which, hey, good to see Alex, but….still not Eric.
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.
