True Blood Round Table: "Cold Grey Light of Dawn"

at . Comments

Is Jessica dead? Do we want her to be? Does Andy have a shot with Holly? Will Alcide end up with Debbie?

In the latest edition of the True Blood Round Table, Editor-in-Chief Matt Richenthal is joined by staff members Eric Hochberger, Carissa Pavlica and Jim Garner as they delve into "Cold Grey Light of Dawn." Reader feedback on the following topics is always encouraged...


What was your favorite scene?
Matt: All the silvering. Gotta give props to the special effects team throughout. I could practically smell the flesh burning.

Eric: Sookie and Eric doing it everywhere. Not because I'm a particularly big fan of this couple, but because that was hot! Plus, it's been awhile since we've seen Anna Paquin's boobs. I was starting to forget what they looked like.

Carissa: Sookie and Eric talking after their sexcapade. They asked and answered real questions. I've always thought it was through survival and circumstance that Eric was on the evil side - and I believe he will retain some of who he is now even if he gets his memory back.

Jim: Ginger riding Pam's coffin. Ginger gets put through a lot of crap, yet she still is willing to jump on a coffin floating two feet off the floor to try and keep Pam safe. That's loyalty... or addiction.

Do you hope Jessica is dead?
Matt: I actually do. Look, I adore Jess. She's young and cute and there's tons of potential in watching her evolve into a mature blood sucker, one who understands her limitations and desires. But no one important ever dies on True Blood! (No offense, Eggs.) Considering the gore and blood and violence and supposedly high stakes, we need a main character to actually perish soon, before we stop taking threats seriously.

Eric: What!? Hells no! That fiery read head may no longer love Hoyt, but that doesn't mean I stopped loving her! She's so young by vampire - and, heck, even human - standards. She deserves a chance to "live!"

Carissa: Absolutely not! Jessica is one of the best characters on the show. She's gorgeous and spunky. She does not have my permission to die.

Jim: You mean Miss "I cheated and mind-wiped my boyfriend to avoid the argument"?? That Jessica? Hell no! I'm crossing my fingers that former football star Jason comes through the door with a body tackle! Vampire or not, she can't weigh more than a 100 pounds, so he could land them in a hall closet. Wink, wink.

Does Andy deserve a second date with Holly?
Matt: I'm not sure he deserved a first date. Asking a woman out within minutes of her home burning down, and then taking her all the way out to a booth in the restaurant at which he works? V is the least of Andy's problems. Dude needs to pick up game from Jason.

Eric: What!? Hells no! Send that guy to whatever miracle rehab Vinnie Chace got on Entourage. If that not-so-clever plot loophole could completely cure Vinnie, it should get Andy off that V fix. Then maybe, just maybe, he deserves another chance with that crazy Wiccan. Just next time? Please pick a better venue than Merlotte's. That place is being more over-used than the Mystic Grill.

Carissa: Andy needs to get clean before he has a chance with anybody. Drugs are bad, mmmmkay?

Jim: Everyone deserves a second chance. But not until he is willing to admit he has a problem and follows through with the another 11 steps afterwards. I am sure there is a VA (V Anonymous) meeting in the area.

Will Alcide and Debbie live happily ever after?
Matt: No. There's a better chance of me getting excited over Sam and Tommy's storyline next week.

Eric: Of course. You saw that look of dread and that sound of hesitation when Alcie told Debbie it'd be forever, right? You can't fake that kind of unenthusiasm.

Carissa: I doubt Debbie will live happily ever after, so I hope to Hell she doesn't take Alcide with her. What a forced, unlikable couple.

Jim: After what? After he realize she's one step from rabid? After he admits he was jealous of Eric having her in the woods? Maybe. But not with each other.

Did Bill make the right call ordering all vampires to be silvered?
Matt: No. I'm a firm believer that the best defense is often a strong offense. You can't just lie down and let the other side do whatever it wants. Who does Bill think he is, President Obama?!?

Eric: Nope. He should have super-sized his silver order on Jess. Bitch be crazy.

Carissa: Absolutely. Too bad he missed that poor woman who melted on her lawn.

Jim: The only mistake Bill made was not telling Bucky to go home and stay out of the basement. Seriously, for a trained vampire body guard he's not very bright.  Hey, Bucky, rule #1: If a vampire is supposed to be wrapped in silver and has gotten free, stay out of arm's reach. Frakkin Duh!


Johanne you have outdone yoeruslf yet again!!! I love these pictures. You have not only captured the event but the emotions as well. I have seen many stunning pictures but the difference with the ones you take is that you put a part of yoeruslf into your work and that is why the viewer left speechless!! Thank you so much for being a part of the wedding!


Does Andy deserve a second date with Holly?
---> Andy made me remember about Brad Bellick in Prison Break. and dont care about his romance but maybe He has twist for True Blood. Do you hope Jessica is dead?
---> No. but I do hope Pam's dead. What was your favorite scene?
---> All Antonia's. Fiona Shaw's great. Can wait to see her in next eps


Watch True Blood Season 4, Episode 7

1)Eric and Sookie pillow talk I guess
5)Yes, since the others were warned and could have left.

1. favorite scene- Ginger jumping on the coffin had me cracking up, but I'm gonna go with Bill and Jessica bonding during the silvering.
2. Jessica's fate- Hope she lives, adore her character.
3. Andy/Holly- Andy needs to get clean first.
4. Debbie/Alcide- Was this a trick question? Helllllll no. Debbie is gonna lose her sh*t all over again. Anybody else keep focusing on the brand on her back? I think it foreshadowed her going back to the darkside.
5. Bill- Yes I think Bill knew that it was the only way to save vamps against Antonia's attack. @fernando Hell yes I noticed Alcide in that sex scene, he needs some more screen time! Debbie is totally taking him for granted.


Is Jessica dead? Do we want her to be? Well, we already know the answer to that question.... Does Andy have a shot with Holly?
Does anyone really care? Holly is a necromancer. Will Alcide end up with Debbie?
Will Debbie stop wearing that awful wig? Lol, no really tho, Debbie seems like she means well but only until something sets her off. Alcide doesn't like Sookie + Eric and that will eventually show thru.....

What was your favorite scene? The Smell of Vampire Grilled Bacon? Not really... The Bill and Jessica talk was bitter sweet, but I have to say that the favourite scene had to be the beginning. Do you hope Jessica is dead? "Spoilers ahead.... If you read into future spoilers from tvfantic, you would know that Jason asks Jessica to glamor him to forget his feelings. So, is Jessica dead? No, but enough to make you worry. Does Andy deserve a second date with Holly? Well, Golly, not until he makes himself look like the real Andy... all clumsy and slap-stick. Will Alcide and Debbie live happily ever after? Alcide:"You're the one for me,"
Debbie:"Are you talking to me?"
Alcide:"Sure babe, why not." Are they going to live happily ever after? Did Bill make the right call ordering all vampires to be silvered? Silver isn't cheap, so yes it's an expensive jewelery accessory for all vampires.


I would not mind seeing Jessica die - it would shake things up for sure. Also, I found the Alcide Debbie scene horrible, no more please. Love Sookie and Pam. Hate Tara.


DEBBIE's New Look? Did Debbie get a nose job or something?


Do I want Jessica to die? I agree with Sponge: NO!!! Francine: Yes I heard the gun shot also Charlaine Harris' books can take TrueBlood on the air for many , many seasons. How many more seasons do you think HBO will do? At first I was basing the series longevity on the average number of years other HBO series have lasted. But then again, look at Entourage, somehow it made 8 years. TrueBlood is much better than that show.
