Nelsan Ellis hints on his character's fate, Stephen Moyer on Bill's relationship with Sookie and Rutina Wesley on Sam-Tara complication in 'True Blood' season 2.
It is at least another 4 months before "True Blood" begins sucking viewers with its second season, and some the cast are coming out to give an update. E! Online, has been trying to dig clues on the answers to the questions that leave the first season hanging. One of the things is whether Lafayette really dies.
It was seen in the very last scene of "True Blood" season one that a foot, very much like Lafayette's, is lifeless in the back seat of Detective Bellefleur's car. To this, Nelsan Ellis who portrays Lafayette, plays it coy saying "They have to wait and see," when asked whether or not it was the end of the character's fate.
Should the writers decide to go by the book it is adapted from, then Lafayette is pretty much dead. When approached further on the possibility of him back filming, Nelsan said, "Absolutely, yeah, I'll come back. I'll take the paycheck."
Another issue that E! asked is whether Sookie and Bill's relationship will be shaken with the presence of Eric. Stephen Moyer said, "I couldn't possibly say. I honestly don't know, but I think that there will be all the conflict that there needs to be to make it a great frisson."
There was also the talk about the love-hate relationship between Tara and Sam. Providing the answer was Rutina Wesley who dished, "[Sam and Tara have] a complicated relationship, and Sam still kind of has that little thing for Sookie. But Tara loves her some Sam-so we'll see."
The second season will arrive in either June or July. Meanwhile, the DVD for the first season is getting a Blu-Ray treatment. All 12 episodes will be compiled in 5 discs that include "True Blood Enhanced Viewing", a featurette of how the vampires are made, and introduction to the characters in Bon Temps by Lafayette. Set to be released on May 19, the Blu-Ray edition is suggested for a retail price of 79.98 dollars.
