Michael Ausiello gifted major True Blood season 5 spoilers to fans this afternoon in his Ask Ausiello comment. After screening the first 4 episodes, he has declared this year the year of Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten), given more information about Russell Edgington’s (Denis O’Hare) return as well as details on who Tina Majorino’s first scene will be with.
First up Pam. For those of you that follow True Blood Fan Source regularly as well as our sister site Kristin Bauer Online, we are already of the opinion that Kristin is a fantastic actor and True Blood wouldn’t be the same without Pam. Michael Ausiello seems to agree going so far as to declare that Kristin is a national treasure:
Question: Wait… you get to seeT rue Blood episodes before they premiere!? —Kevin
Ausiello: Um, yeah. That’s kind of how this whole thing works. I’ve actually already screened the first four episodes of True Blood‘s new season and, based on what I’m seeing so far, I feel very comfortable declaring Season 5 the year of the Pam. Between the origin stuff with Eric and her present-day storyline with [SPOILER], Kristin Bauer van Straten’s vamp is practically in every other scene — and the show is the better for it. I’m starting the 2013 Emmy campaign for KBvS now. The woman is a national treasure! (The folks at Walmart will probably beg to differ after they watch Sunday’s premiere, but whatevs.)
Next Tina Majorino’s casting made big headlines last week but who will she be acting with?
Question: Anything else you can share on Tina Majorino’s True Blood arc? Love her. —Tim
Ausiello: Her first scene is with Eric and Bill. A shirtless Eric and a shirtless Bill.
Lastly, Denis O’Hare offered some pretty intriguing details about Russell’s state of mind this season.
Question: Can’t wait for True Blood this Sunday! Is it safe to say Russell is back to exact revenge on Bill and Eric? —Yvette
Ausiello: ”Russell doesn’t forget anything, but he’s also smart enough to know when to let bygones be bygones — for tactical and political reasons,” the king’s portrayer, Denis O’Hare, tells TVLine. “There may be a greater good.”
