True Bloods Chris Bauer on Manly Andy, Working Through Addiction, and Rescuing Moles

  Andy Bellefleur, the character Chris Bauer plays on True Blood ,started out as comic relief,but as the show has progressed into its seventh and final season, he has evolved into the kind of guy you can legitimately cheer for. And so much has happened to him! [ Warning: There are spoilers from here on out, so come back after youve watched May Be the Last Time, the most recent episode of True Blood .]   For every high weve rooted for (e.g., proposing to his girlfriend ), theres been a corresponding, and usually bizarre, low for us to ponder, such as when his faery children went missing or became tasty vampire snacks . This week, while searching for his only surviving faery daughter, he finally reached his breaking point and had what Bauer calls a total collapse, just existentially not being able to manage anymore. (And it's not because the birth mother warned him that he had a sacred duty to see that at least two of them survived to adulthood). Bauer chatted with Vulture during his own rescue mission (saving an animal that fell in his pool) about freaking out, slut-shaming, and overcoming addiction on screen and off.   Read More... //

'True Blood': Is This It for Bill Compton?

In episode 6 of True Blood season 7, we learned a few things: A) Bill is definitely infected, B) His infection is accelerating at a crazy pace, and C) Sookie infected him. Although Bill is definitely on death's door, that doesn't mean he's going to die. Like any romance novel, one of the lover's HAVE to go through some kind of transformation or near-death experience for the other person to forgive them for whatever they've done. In this case, Bill almost killed Sookie, he betrayed her, he turned into a wack job prophet/vamp god, and basically was the worst boyfriend in the world. Why would Sookie ever get back together with him unless...he almost died? //
