'True Blood' Exclusive: Lafayette Speaks! - Featured

WARNING: Stop reading if you have not watched the season premiere of True Blood. I mean it. Everyone else, onward and downward...

Now that you've seen the season 2 premiere of True Blood, join me in a chorus of "Hallelujah, Lafayette lives!" Although last November's cliff-hanger seemed to suggest that series creator Alan Ball was remaining faithful to Charlaine Harris' books and sending Nelsan Ellis' fierce, flamboyant alter ego to an early grave, Sunday's debut confirmed what many fans had hoped: Ball decided to spare the wildly popular character. But why? In this exclusive interview, Ellis has the surprising answer to that question, as well as scoop on another possible detour Ball has up his sleeve -- this one involving a deep connection between Lafayette and Alexander Skarsgard's Eric.

I am so excited and happy that Lafayette lives I read all the books and I was convinced that we where going to have to see him go now the show is taking a whole new turn but one that seems really interesting a few things though number one what the hell is Jason doing??? Run Jason Stackhouse run ridiculous that this get involved with the Fellowship of the sun number two what are they really going to do with Lafayette and why did Eric look like he just stepped out of a beauty parlor??? And I really hope they stay true to the books when it concerns Eric and Sookie and were all wondering and they still going to have the orgy party??? I can't wait until Sunday
