Alan Ball Spills 'True Blood' Season 3


Alan Ball spared sometime talking about his show "True Blood" which will wrap up its second season on Sunday, September 13. Among the things that he discussed in an interview with TV Squad are the facts that a few members will no longer be seen in season three while some are getting more screen time.


Asked whether Eric, who already became a big part of season 2, will finally get together with Sookie, Ball said, "I can't tell you if they're going to get together, because that's going to ruin the anticipation." He added, "But, if you've been following season two, he's definitely been doing things to make her more vulnerable and more susceptible to him. And he does want her, he's just not sure why. I think it's deeper than just, 'I want her because Bill Compton has her'. Although that's part of it, because Eric is a total alpha-dog."


The third season is loosely based on Charlaine Harris' third novel from the "Sookie Stackhouse" series, "Club Dead". Ball spilled, "...I'm not giving anything away when I say that we'll meet the Vampire King of Mississippi, Russell Edgington. And we'll encounter werewolves for the first time in the flesh; we've heard about them, but we'll meet them. I'm very excited about the character of Debbie Pelt. She's bad news."


Ball went further in revealing what season 3 would be like, saying "Everybody is struggling with identity in season three - What am I? Who am I? What is my life? ...And some people are like, 'Am I human? I always thought I was, but maybe I was wrong'. In one particular case, its like, 'Yes, honey, you were wrong'." Pressed further by TV Squad, Ball admitted that Sookie is not 100 percent human and that she is aware of it.


Those who will not be back for the third season next summer would be Godric, who is "really dead", and second season's villain, Maryann.

Im looking forward to seeing the King of Mississippi hopeful he will be an interesting character. Personally I think that is one of the aspects of the show that has a lot of potential, the way old vampires are portrayed and how they relate to modern society while being from a very old and different world. ERW as many have said was a big let down and Godric was great, speaking on the subject does anyone know if we will meet old vampires from the Old World? Do you meet them in the books?
Not to mention I cant wait to see how they portray werewolves. That will be a big step for the series. Will it be more like underworld werewolves (badass), the ones from blood and chocolate (eh not that great), or extremely corny werewolves like the ones in twilight. If they do it horribly it will hurt the series credibility in my book.
