The fur flies and fangs come out as 'True Blood' returns

Great article from Chicago Tribune

Bonus: Your "True Blood" scorecard

Here is a cheat sheet that may help you keep track of some of the characters introduced in the new season (and don't read on unless you want to see a few mildly spoilery factoids about Season 3 characters):

  • Russell Edgington (Denis O'Hare): He lives in Gothic luxury in Mississippi, which is only fitting, given that he's the vampire king of that state.
  • Alcide (Joe Maganiello): A werewolf with a protective side.
  • Talbot (Theo Alexander): Edgington's consort.
  • Ruby Jean Reynolds (Alfre Woodard): Lafayette's mother.
  • Coot (Grant Bowler): A tough werewolf.
  • Jesus Velasquez (Kevin Alejandro): Someone Lafayette gets to know.
  • Franklin Mott (James Frain): A mysterious vampire who arrives in Bon Temps.
  • Tommy Mickens (Marshall Allman): Sam's long-lost brother (J. Smith Cameron and Cooper Huckabee play his parents).
  • Debbie Pelt (Brit Morgan): Alcide's ex-girlfriend.
  • Holly (Lauren Bowles): A new Merlotte's waitress.
  • Crystal (Lindsay Pulsipher): A mysterious out-of-towner who connects with Jason.
Previously introduced "True Blood" characters include the people mentioned in the review above (Sookie, Bill, Tara, Jason, Eric, Sam, Lafayette, Arlene, Terry and Jessica), as well as:
  • Andy Bellefleur (Chris Bauer): A Bon Temps detective.
  • Hoyt Fortenberry (Jim Parrack): Jessica's would-be boyfriend.
  • Bud Dearborne (William Sanderson): The local sheriff.
  • Lorena Krasiki (Mariana Klaveno): Bill's maker.
  • Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten): Eric's right-hand woman.
  • Sophie-Anne (Evan Rachel Wood): The vampire queen of Louisiana.

Pretty interesting article, and I must agree, I think there are too many story lines to go with the "cast of thousands."

Sharon even with a cast of thousands we know that some are going to die and some
just in 1 or 2 episodes and up from there
so i don't think we will have to worry,just can't wait to see Alex.
