Blood, gore, violence, action, sex... love?!?
True Blood throws an awful lot (of awesomeness) at viewers each week, but romance isn't typically on the menu. Based on recent quotes and upcoming episode descriptions, however, that may soon change.
For example, asked about Lafayette's attraction to his mother's nurse, Nelsan Ellis said: “This character, Jesus, he’s been with for about two weeks. That’s a lifetime for Lafayette, and he has deep, deep feelings for Jesus.”
Moreover, HBO has released the following outlines for episodes in July and they reveal a lot about various relationships and events to come. Be warned: major True Blood spoilers ahead!
