True Blood Music Video of the Day: Love's A Loaded Gun

Love's A Loaded Gun


Go Ask Dallas : True Blood time line -how much time has elapsed since Season 1 ?

Dear Dallas :

My husband and I were discussing the timeline of the show..wondering how long Sookie and Bill have known each other at this point, and how much time has lapsed between the shows seasons of 1-2-3. I have seen you have done a lot of work already, so I am hoping that this you can answer with minimal research to you. Thanks so much Dallas!

Hey Deb

Yes, I love timelines - see this post from last season when everyone was questioning how long they knew each other before Bill asked her to marry him. I always do an episode by episode time line for every season of True Blood and you can see S1 and S2 ones here:

I also have done the books time line:

To answer your question exactly there were 17 days in season 1, a 2 week skip and 12 days in season 2 -so when season 3 opens on the last day of season 2 it has been 43 days since the night Bill walked into Merlotte's the very first time.

We have another little time marker in Season 3 the Dr. told Arlene that she is 9 weeks (63 days pregnant) so that would date back to her "being with " Rene a few weeks before  Bill and Sookie meet.

I'm working on season 3 !

I love questions - keep em coming! No question is silly!

Gothtopia True Blood: Massive Attack At A Strip Club!

Season 3, Episode 4: "9 Crimes"

When Gothtopia was just a wee bit of a thing in stylish black diapers, one of the phrases you heard thrown around a lot by the Reagan administration was "gateway drug," the theory that using drugs like marijuana leads directly to heavier drugs like heroin. Whether or not this concept is true is something is for more learned people to debate, but there is an underlying statistic certainty in the theory. Namely, that once you begin to break a moral code, you cannot help but continue to do so.
When we left True Blood two weeks ago, Vampire Bill (Stephen Moyer) had been abducted by the Vampire King of Mississippi, and since then has slowly become more and more involved with the shady dealings of vampire politics. He has broken up with Sookie (Anna Paquin), renounced his allegiance to the queen of Louisiana, had neck-twisty grudge sex with his sire, and procured and drank from victims for the new regime.

Wait. What’s that? Could it be? Is that Fonzie pulling on his powder blue swim trunks? “Frank, I have to jump the shark again? Mrs. C, I’ll need the big breakfast this morning!” Clearly I’m on the other side of the tank, urging Alan Ball et al to land this jump, but I think this could be the season to divide the fans from the fanatics.

I’m going to be short on the recap part of this post, because I have a follow up rant of epic proportions.

The 411:

• Bill breaks up with Sookie over the phone. Better than a sticky note, but pretty painful, just the same. His heart isn’t just dead, it’s cold. Pouring lemon juice over her gaping wound, he shares with Sookie that he’s just had the kind of sex only two vampires can have. I’m beyond grateful that she didn’t reply, “But, I can try harder!”

• Sookie returns to Lou Pine’s were bar in a rocker girl get up that lands somewhere between Joan Jett, Liza Minnelli, and Ellen Fox of The Rotten Tomatoes Show. (Hat tip to True Blood-themed paper doll creator Andy Swist for pointing that one out.) Accompanied by Alcide (who earlier in the episode wore a bathrobe the size of a picnic blanket), we meet Alcide’s ex, Debbie Pelt, about to be initiated into the V-swigging were pack. These two have a real Jack and Diane vibe. Just a couple of kids on the wrong side of the werewoad tracks. But it’s not looking good for Debbie whose pelt is a titch matted, if I can just throw that in. Alcide could do better. Hmm, wonder with whom? [Enter Goldilocks.]

True Blood Inside the episode: "9 Crimes"

Welcome to Alcide's apartment

We did finally see Alcide's apartment building, remember we saw them filming at the Trianon Apartments in LA.

Trianon Apartments
(Leland Bryant - 1928)
1750-54 Serrano Avenue Google map

Named after Marie Antoinette’s petite hideaway chateau at Versailles in France - possibly because “Chateau d’Azay-le-Rideau,” the 16th century Burgundian military outpost that actually served as its prototype, would fit awkwardly on the huge sign that tops the structure. Architect Leland Bryant also designed the art deco Sunset Tower, now known as the Argyle Hotel, on the Sunset Strip.
