The season six premiere of “True Blood” is quickly approaching and with it some massive spoilers. Set to air on Sunday, June 16, fans of the hit HBO series can expect the shortened season to be action packed.
The synopsis for season six was leaked online by Spoiler TV. According to the June episode descriptions, fans can look forward to the following:
“The Authority is in flames. TruBlood is in short supply. As Bill comes to terms with his newfound powers after emerging reincarnated from a pool of blood, humans are in open conflict with vampires like never before. Meanwhile, Sookie and Jason must steel themselves for an encounter with their parents’ killer: the mysterious and ancient Warlow.”
Needless to say, things in Bon Temps and around the world are falling to shambles. And while the synopsis guarantees some killer drama in the 10 episode season, it failed to cover a major spoiler – death!
“To sum up the show’s return: Blood. Death. Blood. Repeat,” teased TVGuide.com. While the blood is a given, “True Blood” fans should be worried about not just one death – but two. Although who will be dying remains a mystery, TV Guide was good enough to reveal that the second death “won’t stick.” That could mean a few things in the “True Blood” world. The victim could possibly be revived (think Sookie after Bill drained her blood), return as a ghost (Jesus, anyone?) or turned into a vampire (like Tara in season 5).
As mentioned, no character has actually been named in the major death teases; however, rumors have been swirling over Eric getting killed off. To further fuel the Eric fire, the “True Blood” Facebook page posted the following photo on its wall:
The photo's caption says, “A human makes a Bucket List before he ‘kicks the bucket,’ but a vampire’s worldly to-dos are found on his Stake List.” While the photo is obviously a major tease, it does hint at the speculation that Eric will die while trying to protect his kind from the growing threat of humans. As Carter Matt previously revealed, Eric will be stumbling upon a facility where “all sorts of terrible things happen to his own kind.” Could this be where he “kicks the bucket?”
“True Blood” fans will have to wait and see, but in the meantime check out a list of more spoilers for season six below:
Macklyn – Rutger Hauer will be joining “True Blood” this season as the “mysterious and sinister” Macklyn, and his character might be hiding something from Jason and Sookie about Warlow.
Warlow – Warlow isn't just any vampire that killed Sookie and Jason’s parents. According to executive producer Brian Buckner, he's “the oldest vampire we’ve met.” That’s not going to stop Sookie and Jason from going after him though. The siblings are bent on revenge for the death of their parents.
New Love – Move over Eric. The vampire might have looked cozy with Sookie at the end of season five, but Buckner told TV Guide that Sookie is “looking to date somebody with whom she has more in common.” Possibly Ben Flynn?
Billith – What IS Bill? After drinking Lilith’s blood and exploding and then reappearing in the season five finale, Bill has gained the fan nickname “Billith.” But what does that really make him? Buckner explained that they prefer the term “prophet” above anything else. Look forward to Bill having some special powers that we’ve never seen a vampire with before.
Anything Else? – TV Line teases a threesome, Hoyt shout-out and “all kinds of fancy new anti-vampire weaponry.”
“True Blood” premieres its sixth season on Sunday, June 16 at 8 p.m. on HBO.
