‘True Blood’ Season 5 Spoilers: Clues About Russell’s Love Interest

True Blood season 5 means the return of Russell (Denis O’Hare) to the show, and while he’s out for blood (of course), he’s also going to have someone special in his life as well. Who will that be?

Season 5 Spoilers

True Blood 2008 logoWhile previous spoilers have revealed that the new man in Russell’s life was at the premiere and isn’t Steve Newlin (Michael McMillian), not many details are out about him. TV Guide talked to Denis O’Hare about this new man in Russell’s life, and he revealed, “He’s taller than I am, but he’s not as good a dresser. On hair terms, we’re on par, neck and neck because I wear a wig, of course, but his hair is pretty rockin’. I think I still win on the hair thing.” So it’s still unclear just who this love interest will turn out to be, but that will make it even more fun when he is revealed.

Another question going into True Blood season 5 revolves around who dug Russell up in the first place, and when asked if the new love interest is the one responsible for that, O’Hare said, “No, I have many fans, many people working for Russell.” So there are two people connected to Russell whose identities fans can keep guessing about. That question of who dug up Russell is leading to plenty of distrust among all the characters. Eric’s even going to be questioning Pam, who is surprised when that happens. But they can’t be too careful, especially with Russell free, after blood—including Sookie’s, and with who knows how many people on his side, and with the Vampire Authority around. Those dynamics are going to be entertaining to see play out in season 5.
