True Blood Spoilers: An Unexpected Romance

by at . Comments

In one sense - one VERY hot sense - True Blood will remain true to the Charlaine Harris novels on which it's based this season.

In another, though, the series veered away from its source material last Sunday when Eric chowed down on Sookie's fairy godmother. The character of Claudine sticks around for awhile in Harris' world. Why did creator Alan Ball go in this direction?

“After everything that was going on with the fairies in the first episode, I think we wanted to sort of put a pin in that, but obviously it’s not over,” Ball told EW. “I felt it would have more impact if it was someone we knew as opposed to just a random fairy.”

A Mistaken Meal

What other craziness is ahead on season four? Ball touched on a number of topics with just one quote. Prepare to be spoiled/teased below.

“It gets ugly between the vampires and the witches. There’s more than one fight coming up. There’s also a very unexpected romantic attachment which you’ll start to see the beginnings of I believe in next week’s episode. We’re gonna find out a lot about Jesus’ magic that’s in his family. We’re gonna get to the bottom of what’s going on with Arlene’s baby.”

That's a lot to digest. Discuss the storyline that has you most excited in our True Blood forum!

I think the "abortion potion" holly gave arlene could have "aborted" the baby's good side, thus causing Rene's evil ways to show through/take over the baby OR maybe Arlene was pregnant with Terry and the evil ex, Rene' child, twins?! Just a Guess any findings that thee above could be facts on this is a WILD guess. I'd really like to know Why Arlene was bleeding so much if the baby never was aborted. Oh, cant wait until tonights Episode!
@Dana
And thank you for spoiling the surpise! I wish you had not done that it was unfair to All of us who would have like to have not known. @Ian Schuessele
I agree!! Thank you.

If anything is wrong with Arlene's baby, I blame her and Holly. Holly gave her some mysterious "abortion potion" that didn't work and Arlene took it. It's both their fault if anything is wrong with that child - especially Arlene!

I really hope that it is the shower scene! yum! Ian, for you to get on Dana about being over sensitive, you don't do yourself any favors. Why are you coming to discuss the show on a website that is all about spoilers?? That's why I come here to read all the shows spoilers. Maggiel

@Dana, I would hardly call a Great Great Great Grandaughter a close relative, there would be a ton of other DNA in the mix, its legal to marry cousins (and do things married people do), limited to second cousins in the US though, and the DNA difference there is only from one additional source (two for second cousins) where as Portia has 6 sources of DNA, add onto that the fact that Bill has changed his DNA by becoming Vampire, I would hardly call that incest then. Merely the past catching up with you. I will steal a line from another Vampire TV Show and throw in a "If you live forever the past always catches up to you eventually". Also on top of the fact that sleeping with your Great Great Great Grandaughter from your Previous Human life, is hardly incestual, if you really were disgusted by such things then you would have stopped watching last season when terms like Uncle Daddy! came around in hot-shot, anyone still watching after that obviously isn't as sensitive about Incest in True Blood as you are. One final comment, thanks from everyone everywhere who hasn't read the books who read this blog from ruining the suprise that assumeably comes up in the next episode about Portia's partial relation to Bill.

Sorry, I think Bill's hooking up his Great great daugher Portia is incest and disgusting. I have love the show and the characters but having sex with your close relative is beyond horrible, and will no longer watch.

A "A Very Hot Sense", you mean the Shower Scene? Otherwise, I don't think the spoilers are about Eric and Sookie sharing a nice cup of Hot Chocolate?
