HomePop ConfidentialPop ConfidentialTONS of True Blood SCOOPAGE Ahead of Season 6 Finale! Susan Hornik August 14, 2013 Pop Confidential, TV 5 Comments It's hard to believe HBO's True Blood is once again heading toward a season finale. We at Daytime Confidential want to give Truebie fans something to sink their fangs into! At the recent Comic Con panel for the show, newly-appointed executive producer Brian Buckner revealed Season 6 would end “awesomely” and promised the show would return to its roots. “We’re going to try to condense the number of stories we’re telling and make this really feel like we’re coming home," said Buckner. "I feel like this show is ultimately about the relationship between vampires and humans, and it’s about this town. I wanna bring it in a little bit. Not to discount Charlaine [Harris]‘ books at all, but my hope is to get all these people we love living under this one story and one threat. Really just make it about this small town we’ve all come to know and love.” Anna Paquin is happy her character, Sookie Stackhouse, is much more fearless this season. "She's not being anyone's doormat. She's sick of taking whatever from whomever," Paquin said. "She's more independent, strong and tough. I feel like she's actually finally learning from all the incredibly odd, bizarre and unfortunate stuff that's happened to her." When asked what it was like to be married to co-star Stephen Moyer—whose character, Bill Compton, everyone in Bon Temps believed had turned into God this season—Paquin quipped: “I’m agnostic, so I haven’t decided if I’m going to accept his godliness.” EastEnders alum Rob Kazinsky, who plays fairy/vampire hybrid Warlow, gave insight into that extremely sexy shaving scene between Warlow and Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten). “I actually thought it was a hazing to begin with,” Kazinsky said. “Ryan made me feel like a lady that day. He couldn’t have been more gentle. Not too much tongue. Just the right amount. A little peekaboo.” Joe Manganiello addressed backlash over sexy werewolf Alcide, evolving into a raging, kidnapping, jerk of a pack master this season. Can his character be redeemed? “I don’t like that everybody’s upset at my character,” he acknowledged. “But in my mind, I have to justify my character's actions…being pack master is a pretty thankless job." M anganiello also has missed his "bro-downs" with co-star, Sam Trammel. "I love the friendship between Sam and Alcide." Rutina Wesley (Tara) feels like Tara is enjoying being a vampire much more than ever before. "I think she loves the strength; she loves the power and she loves the blood," said Wesley. Of her character's evolution, she said, "Tara's becoming a protector, a big sister of sorts, for other characters. I'm having a really great time doing that." And how does fan favorite Nelsan Ellis get into character as Lafayette? “A little Rihanna and (putting on) makeup gets me to LaLaLand!” he admitted. The Season 6 finale of True Blood airs Sunday, Aug. 18 at 9 pm EST. 5 Responses tmac August 15, 2013 Tons of True Blood Scoopage? I didn’t read any scoops in that article. They plan to scale down the stories and bring it back to its roots. Is that a scoop? No. Scoops would be who is Sarah Newlin going to go after…where did Eric fly off to…will Sookie have to marry Ben/Warlow (and if she doesn’t I will)…now those would be scoops.

Log in to Reply Dyllan August 15, 2013 At least they are condensing the number of storylines. Last year they had way too many characters and it was hard to keep them straight. Am I the only one who loves Sooki/Warlow? I hate Sooki, but find her hot with Warlow. IMO, the wolves can beat as can Alceide. Totally worthless. Plus, I HATE his hair. The Dutch Boy haircut is not flattering. I still can’t stand Bill. I thought this season was better than last.

I loved season 1 & 2 so good to read that the writers are going back to that Log in to Reply yojoromo4469 August 19, 2013 [quote=Dyllan]At least they are condensing the number of storylines.

Being an old married guy with grown children, very surprised to see Sooki looking so good, shape wise after just having a baby.
