Janina Gavankar has been cast to play McKenna Hall in a multi-episode arc on The CW’s Arrow. McKenna is a Starling City PD vice cop, but she knew Oliver Queen back in his pre-island bad boy days. When a new drug called Vertigo — dealt by a dealer character played by Fringe actor Seth Gabel — starts wrecking havoc, their paths will cross in more ways than one.
A couple of notes about last night’s Emmys:
We want to congratulate Denis O’Hare (Russell Edgington) on the announcement that he and his husband, Hugo Redwood, are close to adopting their foster son who is currently 17-months-old and has been living with them since he was two-weeks-old.
Also, Alexander Skarsgard gave a shoutout to all the fan site that do charitable work.
One more thing, I am so happy that Mad Men did not win… it made the Peter Dinklage loss less painful.
What a season! Kudos to the True Blood crew for giving us the best season we’ve ever had and we cannot wait to see the 6th season. We were not totally surprised by those that passed away, but we will most definitely miss Russell Edington. His crazy made us go crazy. With that stated, here is the complete list of characters that passed away during the season finale.
Chelsea the Receptionist
Now, let’s get on with the recap!
Besides all the death and mayhem, I just want to first jump for utter joy because Eric was awesome tonight!
Between offing Russell:
Bickering with Jason:
Protecting his progeny:
Sharing a moment with Pam:
Bothering his sister:
And attempting to save Bill from himself:
Eric had a banner night!
Other highlights of note:
Well, Maurella finally popped after ingesting a container of table salt and Andy did not only become a daddy to one bouncing baby girl, but 4:
Unfortunately for Andy and the somewhat understanding Holly, Maurella up and left and left the rearing of the babies to Andy as part of their pact. Nice parenting Maurella. God help you Andy. Btw, I wish child birth was that enjoyable, I would have had 50 kids if it was that orgasmic?
Sam and Luna continued to try to save Emma and they came up with the brilliant plan that consisted of Luna shifting into Steve so she could smuggle Emma out of the Authority compound. It was going to work, but then Roslyn showed up and dragged whom she believed was Steve to do an interview for damage control. As expected, Luna turned back to her normal self and before Roslyn could get her mitts on her… Sam buzzed his fly self into Rosalyn’s mouth… if that’s not love than I don’t know what is.
The question for season 6 is… will Luna survive? Remember, every time a Shifter changes into a another human the weaker they become mentally and physically.
The pack storyline was not my favorite, but it was completed (or so we think). So, we saw Alcide, his Dad and Emma’s grandmother go into the pack to get it back and set it on the straight and narrow. We watched Alcide pummel J.D. to death. Unfortunately, he had to ingest vampire blood to do so. The question is, is this the end of Alcide’s troubles or will we see him suffer the repercussions for what he did tonight in Season 6?
So the mystery of Warlo continues:
Big question for Season 6 is how does Nora know Warlo?
So, let’s go into the storyline that we saw coming and damn it… they are the best True Blood couple, hands down!
Jessica: Sookie could you get these doors?
Sookie: Oh right cuz ya’ll are vampires and these are silver doors duh
Sookie: *opens Jess’s door*
Sookie: *goes to open Pam’s door*
Tara: *fucking opens it anway*
Jessica: I knew it
Where the official shipping of Para or Tam (Pam+Tara) was born tonight, Jessica totally lost Jason. Jason is in full on delusional mode. He is now being haunted by the hallucinations of his parents and they are feeding him this ire that is coming from that deep seeded issue he has had with vampires since he found out that his parents were killed by Warlo. This has resulted in Jason hating all of vampdom and that includes Jessica.
Will Jessica reach the old Jason is Season 6 and save him from all this crazy-talk or will we see Jason end up killing Jessica? The torture…
Towards the end of the episode the group split, Eric and Sookie stayed behind to save Bill and the rest were escaping which is when we got a bonus scene (from HBO) and that was what was going on in the lift:
While everyone else is taking down the compound, Eric and Sookie go looking for Bill. They tried to make Bill understand that he was under the influence, but he was not going to give in and for a brief moment we thought we lost one of the key players in the True Blood universe.
We should know better now, because Alan Ball and the writers of HBO would not let that happen and we were given the biggest shock of the tv year!
All praise Billith…
The shit is on…
Season 6 is going to be amazing!
With that said…
and waiting sucks!
Janina Gavankar, who plays Luna on True Blood, joined the cast of the mid-season comedy titled The Goodwin Games. The show is a high-concept comedy follows three estranged siblings, one of which will be portrayed by Scott Foley who portrayed Patrick on True Blood.
What does this mean for the character of Luna is anyone’s guess.
With only three episode left in the season, we are biting our nails to the nub wondering who will and will not survive this season of True Blood. This ominous feeling is not helped with episode titles such as, “Gone, Gone, Gone.”
The synopsis for the episode is: With vampire attacks are on the rise, Bill starts a public relations campaign to gain public favor. Nora, on the other hand, is having a hard time selling Lilith’s gospel to Eric. Jason’s discovery of a mysterious scroll could reveal details about his family history. The new sheriff of Area 5 presses Pam and Tara to obey a new directive. Sam and Luna search for Emma. Russell seeks out his destiny.
Shake your fists to the sky and take deep breaths, these last few episodes are going to be a roller coaster of a ride.
We interrupt the Men’s Swimming Olympic coverage with a little visual recap of True Blood’s Somebody I Used to Know.
The best storyline of the episode had to be that of Sam and Luna. As Sam went off on his quest to ride Bon Temps of it’s Supes Serial Killers, Luna started to lose it and eventually lost herself externally… that is.
Watching Luna as Sam walk around with his/her butt out and then Sam/Luna and Sam almost kiss had us in stitches and falling even more for this coupling.
Now, since kids go to this site, I will only have a still image of the scene that had many a women repeat over and over again:
Next up, Pam and Tara’ relationship keeps moving forward and for the better:
There was a bitter-sweet moment and that revolved around Lafayette:
These two had the best relationship and unfortunately these moments between Lafayette and the spirit that is Jesus are not enough for the fans.
The funniest moment revolved around the vampire that we all love to hate and the former preacher that had the hots for Jason:
There two will be fuckbuddies in no time…
Craziest moment is that of the mysterious vampire that killed Sookie’s parents and is now after Sookie:
Most unfortunate moment revolved around Bill. Bill, when did you become so easily swayed by which way the wind blows????
What was your highlight and your low-light moment in tonight’s episode of True Blood?
True Blood Fun Fact #69 – Albert Einstein was a Hafling (Half Fae/Half Human).
By Kelly H.
With the show’s fifth season quickly approaching, we’ve all been wondering what will happen when True Blood returns.
Well, actress Janina Gavankar (Luna) recently gave us a little intel on what’ll be going on with Luna in the show’s upcoming season.
“Ohhhh, just general insanity,” she told Gianna, from the Inside True Blood blog. “I’d like to say she’s ONLY dealing with losing the father of her child, but her life is just getting more and more complicated this year.”
Could this complication be the Vampire Authority?
Gavankar says no, although that may not always be the case. “Well, look, the Authority will affect everyone on this planet at some point, so… yes. But right now, the shifters have something else to deal with.”
So, what is it exactly that will be affecting the shifters in Season 5?
My bet is that it’ll have Marcus’ name written all over it, whatever it is, because Sam and Luna, along with Alcide, were involved up to their eyeballs in his death.
What do y’all think?
Remember, Season 5 of True Blood will premiere on Sunday, June 10th, on HBO.
Here are several images recently released by HBO from the upcoming 5th season of True Blood:
First up … The Authority:
Next … The Vamps:
And … The Weres/Shifters:
And finally … Everyone else:
