‘True Blood’s Alan Ball: ‘There’s a Big Body Count This Season’ interview with fancast

Bill and Sookie Find Absence Does Not Always Make The Heart Grow Fonder
Bill [Stephen Moyer] and Sookie [Anna Paquin] are torn apart when Bill is kidnapped.  Eric is an immediate suspect, but is he actually the culprit?  “Somebody took Bill and obviously she’s trying to find him. It gets way more complicated from there.  It’s not necessarily who you thought might have taken him.  There are different reasons at work.  It all comes together at the end.  But I will say that Bill and Sookie’s relationship is tested to a degree it has never been tested before.”  Ball is alluding to the arrival of sexy werewolf Alcide.  “He’s just broken up with his girlfriend. He’s single.  Sookie’s heartbroken because Bill’s been kidnapped and she can’t find him. And, hello, they’re two gorgeous people in tight quarters.  Sparks will fly.”
Lafayette Finds Jesus (No, Not That Jesus)
“This season we’ll see a different side of Lafayette [Nelsan Ellis].  We will meet his mother [played by Alfre Woodard]. Lafayette will find himself in an actual relationship, not a transaction where money is crossing hands. But there’s actually somebody he’s met who is interested in him, and is interested in him enough to sort of chip away at those big walls of defense that exist around Lafayette’s heart… Lafayette and Jesus  [Kevin Alejandro] are pretty damn sexy together. That’s his new boyfriend.”
Tara Does Not Put All Her Eggs In One Basket
“When we first see Tara [Rutina Wesley]  she is grieving the loss of Eggs.  She’s questioning if life has any meaning.  She gets involved in a new relationship which is going to be quite a journey for her.”
