True Blood Round Table: Third Season Premiere

at . Comments

Welcome to the True Blood Round Table!

While we've already reviewed the season three premiere in depth, this is True Blood, people: there's always more to dissect!

From hilarious quotes to attractive rear ends, the TV Fanatic staff has gathered to analyze numerous aspects of "Pack of Wolves." We encourage readers to chime in with their take on the following topics...

What was your favorite True Blood quote from the episode?
M.L. House: Easy. Take it away, Pam: "I don't know what it is about me that makes people think I want to hear their problems. Maybe I smile too much. Maybe I wear too much pink. But please remember I can rip your throat out if I need to. And also know that I am not a hooker. That was a long, long time ago."

The Barnacle: Oh, without a doubt, Bill standing up to the werewolves.  "I should warn you, I fed."  Simple. Bad ass.

Mrs. Northman: Sookie's shock at Eric's sexual prowess: Doing this? For the last six hours?!? And then Eric's response, of course: You seem surprised. Is Bill's stamina not enough? I love my husband! (Even if he is a male whore).

Will Tara live to see next week?
M.L. House: Yes. But a better question would be this: will she ever be the same? It's one thing to have a broken heart; it's another to have a broken heart as the result of your lover's death; and it's still another to have a broken heart as the result of your lover's death because the two of you were under the control of a murderous maenad.

The Barnacle: For sure.  Is there any better pill expert out there than Lafayette?  I'm sure that dude has saved enough people from overdoses to be able to handle our obnoxious Tara.

Mrs. Northman: Of course! Anyone who's watched the previews or read about this season knows that she's going to get freaky with a vamp. 

Sexier backside: Jason or Eric?
M.L. House: Why must we choose? If Eric can have two women at once, can't True Blood fans ogle both these rear ends at once? That's why I did when I set up two TVs side-by-side and hit "rewind" on the DVR one or two dozen times.

The Barnacle: Definitely, Eric.  And by Eric, I mean myself.

Mrs. Northman: Umm... hello! Mr. Northman. And was this really a question? Was there ever a doubt who I'd pick?

Who faces the more pressing problem: Bill with the werewolves, or Eric with the Queen pressuring him to sell all the V?
M.L. House: Bill with the werewolves. But it's a problem for his love life, not his actual life. Have you seen Alcide topless?!? Sorry, William. But we know who we'd choose if we were Sookie.

The Barnacle: Oh, please, like Eric has a problem.  I'd spend as much time with Evan Rachel Wood pressuring me as possible.  She's as hot as she is a terrible actress.  Good luck, Bill.  Just be glad none of those werewolves work out as much as Taylor Lautner.

Mrs. Northman: Bill has the more pressing problem at the moment, but Eric really has his hands tied with the Queen pressuring him to sell the V. Both these situations are very intense and I can't wait to see how it unfolds!

The Queen

Will Sam get along well with his family?
M.L. House: Gonna go out on a wild limb here and say no. But perhaps Sam will at least learn a lot more about his shape-shifting past.

The Barnacle: Did you see the way his brother offered him a tire discount?  They'll be besties in no time. 

Mrs. Northman: I am assuming the mechanic is his brother or someone related to him. Otherwise, why would he be so creepy? Plus, didn't the previews show this same guy holding a gun to Sam's head in later episodes?

The clap boards apeapr to be the real ones they are using to film the scenes, as they were last year. The script pages are obviously not the real ones. The WS scenes would not all fall at the beginning of a new page. Even if they start a new page with each new scene, the Bill & Eric one, starting with Eric leaving, was not the beginning of a scene. It looks like the script pages are just numbered randomly.WS AE 4.02, scene 39, p. 60WS Sam 4.04, scene 28, p. 4WS Jason 4.03, scene 4, p. 28WS Bill & Eric 4.02, scene 40, p. 40The voice over, which apeaprs to be reading stage direction from the script, isn't.For example, the one for Luna and Sam says:Luna sits on the sofa but keeps a distance between them. She decides to tell it all. That last sentence isn't stage direction. It's only there for the benefit of the audience. Same with this week's. The voice over says:Bill and Eric take stock of the situation, both of them understanding it clearly.Again that is not stage direction. It's there for the audience, not the actors.The action in the AE WS does not even match up with the script.It says:Ext. country road–nightA shirtless blonde man wandering aimlessly down the middle of the road.In the clip there is no road. I feel confident that if one were specified in the script, then AE would indeed be in the middle of the road and not wandering around the woods.So IMO, clap boards real, scripts fake. 0 likes


ahaha loved the episode. i mean not the greatest but idc, true blood is baack! yeaa.. been waiting for so long..!!! grr how ive missed all these characters. and i have a feeling this season is going to be pretty damn amazing.


What was your favorite quote?
Jason telling Hoyt that if he is going to stay with him he will have to deal with "pu**y overflow"


Yah IMDB states Bad Blood too but my DVR did say pack of wolfs. I don't see why it can't have two titles! It's TRUE BLOOD! they can do anything they want!


The season two finale was lackluster, and the premier was disappointing and boring in some spots. This show is not a master piece at all, but it is entertaining most of the time.

@Mano: We originally had that title, but all of our DVR listings say "Pack of Wolves." Either way... does it matter? True Blood is back!


it does say that.....


Hi! I think the name of this episode is "Bad Blood", not "Pack of Wolves" -- at least, is what the HBO's site says. :)


What was your favorite quote?
"Sookie: I'm in no mood for lesbian weirdness tonight Pam." Will Tara live to see next week?
Yes - Of course she will! Sexier backside: Jason or Eric?
Jason - he is just prettier! Will Sam get along well with his family?


I loved the season 3 was worth waiting for.........especially the ogling part....yummy!!!!! I hope Tara's mystery vamp enters the action soon cuz i hate seeing her this way. And ha-ha to Jason's flaccid situation, but I bet he'll be up and going again soon. Cant wait for next Sunday night!!!!!
