True Blood Season 3 Spoilers

In this week’s TV Guide Mega Buzz, we get a little scoop on a character’s return to True Blood that spells bad news for two of our favorites:

Give me a good tease about True Blood’s new season. — Holly
MICKEY: Zeljko Ivanek (aka the best guest star of everything) returns as the Magister, and he’s cracking down on the illegal V trade in Louisiana. This is a problem for the Queen, since she’s tacitly allowing it, and for Eric and Pam, since they’re running it.

From this I think we can confirm that Evan Rachel Wood is back as Queen Sophie-Anne, and that Eric and Pam better watch their backs!

True Blood executive producer and all-around-awesome guy Alan Ball is toying with us again. He gave Sci Fi Wire nine sort-of spoilers for True Blood season 3, most of which is information we already new but with a few juicy tidbits thrown in. In brief, here they are:

  1. We’ll be exploring the world of shifters and weres in some detail. Alan stipulates that,”They are two different kinds of creatures with a lot of similarities.” Alcide Herveaux, Debbie Pelt, and Coot and Gus are the weres we’ll be seeing the most of, while Sam Merlotte and his biological family will give us insight into the shifter world. Alan still isn’t saying whether or not Sam’s brother, Tommy Mickens, is a shifter.
  2. We’re definitely going to Hotshot! “We meet Hotshot, we meet the people in Hotshot, we meet Crystal and her father, Calvin,” Alan revealed.
  3. Vampire politics will be a major issue this season.
  4. Russell Edgington, the King of Mississippi, is the biggest baddie of the season.
  5. Franklin Mott and Tara Thornton will have an incredibly dysfunctional relationship.
  6. Lafayette gets his first major love interest in Jesus, and has to deal with his possibly insane mom.
  7. We find out who took Bill almost immediately, but he won’t get back to Bon Temps until mid-season.
  8. Alan Ball is having fun with True Blood and thinks it could continue for several years.
  9. Not really a spoiler, but Alan says he was surprised by the “rock star” reception they got at Comic Con last year. We already know True Blood will be back at Comic Con this year, so get ready to rock!
