True Blood is getting ready to start season five, and there is a lot of drama in store for this series when it does return next month. Big bad vampire, King Russell, is back, and he probably won’t be too happy about being buried in concrete. No one should be happy about that if it happens to them though.
Russell has some changes in store for him in season five though. Denis O’Hare decided to give fans the inside scoop on his character and what he will do next season. The big bad will be bad again it sounds like, but he will also find new happiness. O’Hare said the following, according to Hollywood Hills:
“In a strange way, Russell is actually a lot funnier this season. He’s not toothless, but he’s a little more of a comic foil until he isn’t. And then he becomes very, very vicious again. Which I love. [Russell will be grateful to somebody] and that gratitude may inform his new personality. I get to dance, I get to hold a puppy and I get to sing karaoke, a great 70s classic, not all at the same time, mind you.”
Season five will deal a great deal with vampire politics. Ryan Kwanten already teased that this will be the most controversial season of True Blood yet, so some political drama and intrigue will be in store.
As for Russell’s happiness, he will have a new man in his life. He needs love too, and Eric did kill off his life mate. Who will Russell find that happiness with? Only a few more weeks, and fans will find out!
