Season 3 Speculation and Theories ( as of July 15th)

Sookie/Eric/Bill/ Russell/ Talbot/ Queen Sophie-Ann/ Hadley /  AVL / The Magister predictions

"Invite me in, now!"

Sookie’s home represents her private life. When Sookie invited Eric into her home and did not rescind the invitation immediately after the werewolf incident, she essentially invited Eric in her private life. Every time someone human or vampire comes into Sookie’s home it either represents that she is trusting and caring for someone or it is an invasion of her private life (even and especially during Gran’s funeral); obviously with Eric it was not the latter.  Therefore, things between Eric and Sookie will move totally beyond the buisness aspect and almost totally into the personal aspect by season’s end. That is the general theme for Eric/Sookie this season.   

Now for the endless lists, bear with me:     

* It seems obvious that Russell is the target of Eric’s revenge plot and it will be interesting to see how Eric is later torn between vengeance and his sense of duty to the king that has helped him.     

* It also seems obvious at this point that Eric will align himself with Russell in order to get rid of his problems with QSA and the magister. Ironically, Eric will become Russell’s right hand man even though Talbot has cheated with him and/or Eric has killed him (for whatever reason), Eric will probably do things to help Sookie that Russell will not approve of, and Russell is the target of Eric’s revenge. It also seems obvious Talbot will die, possibly by Eric’s hand or an attack by the FOTS or someone else.     

* Eric will not only be there to help Sookie during the night time, he has sent Alcide to help during the day time. Eric will be crucial to Sookie’s safety throughout the entire season, especially when things go sour with Bill, even after his rescue (even if Bill does give Sookie warnings).  I predict Eric will save Sookie again (at least one more time) and  Sookie will return the favor by rescuing him in the daytime and will even give him blood to heal (if the first kiss does not come during the infamous “intense scene” in episode 6 or otherwise, it will come as Sookie thinks Eric might die (the truth death). Even if they do kiss earlier or even almost make love earlier, I think there will definitely be a kiss during this scene.     

* Why will a day time rescue be needed and how will Russell come into play? Unfortunately, the Fellowship of the Sun will come into play again. Steve Newlin will ride a new-found wave of vampire hate ( caused either by Russell’s own quest for vengeance concerning Talbot’s death and/or the dead, drained, headless trucker Jessica killed and/or something else unable to predict at this point and/or a combination of these) and choose Eric’s buisness in order to exact his own vengeance for the embarrassment Eric caused him last season at his own buisness (the fellowship).  Since Russell will be spending time at Fangtasia (as some spoilers reveal) he will require his own rescue as well. However, the rescue might be haywire as Eric lets his personal feelings of vengeance take over and decides to try to let Russell die (even if it might be in his best interest to keep Russell in power).     

* Eric will be able to use Hadley as bait because it turns out the Queen actually loves Hadley and Eric is not an idiot and will figure this out. Bill will lose the king’s favor after he is not especially forthcoming once confronted with the evidence. Lorena will be eager to torture him for the information Russell wants after he so easily goes back to Sookie and/or she finds out he was trying to have her meet her true death in exchange for helping Russell.s out. I believe the queen was actually speaking from experience (whether she knew it or not) when she told everyone not to taste Sookie because they might fall in love (maybe that is what she chooses to blame her own love on whether it is true or not). Eric will find out Bill’s purpose after he interrogates the queen and forces her to either marry Russell or give him Louisiana. This may or may not be when Sookie finds out (then or shortly after).     

* Eric already hates Nan after the way she treated Godric in his final moments. Nan and the AVL will become one of Eric’s most bitter enemies as the season progresses. This will be especially true after Eric aligns himself with Russell (who hates the extremes views of the magister and the AVL). The problem of the magister will never totally go away for Eric (even if the magister meets his true death). Nan will do anything to pass the Vampire rights amendment and she sees people like Russell and his allies as enemies that stand in the way of that (even if they are fellow vampires).     

* QSA is a witch and the palace has become sort of the head quarters for her coven. She keeps her human slaves content and willing through magic. She probably also is trying to achieve walking in the sun through magic. She probably also achieved her power through magic and her alliance with witches in much the same way that Russell achieved his power through his alliance with werewolves. If anything happens to QSA, other witches will seek vengeance for her death or her being over thrown or harmed or punished (maybe people like Yvetta and/or Holly). Maybe Amnesia Eric will be caused from a spell cast in vengeance by QSA herself or one of those potential witches or someone else associated with QSA’s coven.     

* Sookie will agree to work for Russell and/or QSA in exchange for Bill’s release but will later regret that decision.     

* Bill will attack Sookie at some point, possibly during the rescue AND/OR will be forced to reveal the real reason he was in Bon Temps. Sookie will promptly break up with him though it will be a painful and reluctant decision and it will shake her trust in men/vampires. Eric will do his best to comfort her while Alicide will try to convince her vampires in general are bad news and so will everyone else.

* The desire to walk in the sun may become a theme in the latter half of the season, leading up to Eric and Russell (possibly Pam) meeting the sun and the fellowship’s assertion that the sun is the ultimate weapon when it comes to fighting the vampires.     

* Though Eric will be portrayed a lot more sympathetic than last season, his darkness will not only come from his desire to seek vengeance, but also what he does in an attempt to prove himself to Russell (whatever that may be).     

* Though Bill neglected her, Jessica will probably end up being one of Bill’s only allies after his terrible downfall. Jessica will even try to get Sookie to forgive Bill probably.     

Random Lists of Predictions:     

* **********If you have read any spoilers, Holly (the new merlotte’s waitress) is obviously a witch/wiccan.********************     

* Jessica will consider turning Hoyt or marrying him.     

* Though he will initially try to help Tommy, I think Sam will ironically become Tommy’s partner in crime rather than helping him in the right way.     

* Tara will be attracted to Sam once again once she sees his darkness, they may become involved once again ( even if Franklin is still possibly alive and stalks her , though I have a feeling he will be offed along with Talbot).     

* Arlene and/or Tara might become witches under Holly’s influence. I think Arlene might ironically develop the same depth of fascination with Wiccans/witches that she did with the FOTS in the books.     

*Jesus is a V addict and probably a supernatural too. He may have looked Lafayette back up for ulterior motives of his own (such as the V or something else).     

* Crystal will distract Jason from everything, including his new-found bribed police job and Jason will suffer endless “consequences.”     

* Holly might possibly tie into QSA, though that is not necessarily the case.     

* Jessica might suffer consequences in the future for the trucker’s death despite her new-found happiness with Hoyt and/or Tommy.     

* The AVL will suffer scrutiny from the government.

    “Therefore, things between Eric and Sookie will move totally beyond the buisness aspect and almost totally into the personal aspect by season’s end. That is the general theme for Eric/Sookie this season.”
    I agree with you there wholeheartedly! It sets up the next season! I think it was intentional to not write S/E together in the later episode descriptions.

    “It also seems obvious Talbot will die, possibly by Eric’s hand or an attack by the FOTS or someone else. ”
    I was thinking that it had something to do with the magister. Russell is suppose to be all heartbroken at the same time the magister disappears. Maybe Eric killed the magister.

    “Eric will not only be there to help Sookie during the night time, he has sent Alcide to help during the day time. Eric will be crucial to Sookie’s safety throughout the entire season”
    This I’m sure of as well. There are so many dangers coming her way now and Eric isn’t going to leave her to it, and Alcide is in the episode descriptions for the last part of the season. And I’m hoping for a E/S kiss somewhere in this 😉

    I’m with you on the FoTS, looks like war is brewing…

    Also pretty convinced that the queen is a witch or has strong connections with witches.

    “Bill will attack Sookie at some point, possibly during the rescue AND/OR will be forced to reveal the real reason he was in Bon Temps. Sookie will promptly break up with him though it will be a painful and reluctant decision and it will shake her trust in men/vampires. Eric will do his best to comfort her while Alicide will try to convince her vampires in general are bad news and so will everyone else.”
    This is straight from the books and I believe they will use this. That is one of the reason for Sookies distrust in Eric in SVM!

    Love all the predictions you’ve made 🙂 I’ll be coming here after every episode 😀

      Thank you so much Freyja, I really appreciate it.

      I might come up with some wild and crazy reach predictions later but I had to give the most likely scenario on my mind with this.

  2. #3 by sunnynala on July 16, 2010 - 1:36 am

    Crap! I put my comment in the wrong thread, lol! here it is:

    I totally agree that Bill will somehow attack Sookie, which MIGHT lead to the intense moment/healing between E/S. There almost HAS to be an attack by Bill if they want to follow the books. Such an attack would be rich fodder for debate and controversy and I can’t see AB/TB passing up the chance.

    • #4 by talktrueblood on July 16, 2010 - 1:50 am

      OH yes, I agree. They need something VERY serious but also interpertable in order to shake the Bill fans but still have some of the die hard Bill fans there.

    • #5 by Freyja on July 16, 2010 - 2:48 am

      I’m almost positive that Bill will attack Sookie. It will have the same affects as in the books, either people will be appalled or excuse him because he ‘had no chance’.

  3. #6 by Sarah on July 16, 2010 - 10:59 am

    wow I love your predictions. But I hope against all reason that they won´t kill of Talbott and Lorena. Both are faszinating characters and they enlighten the fashion hell of Sookieverse 🙂
    I have another predicition concerning Arlene. It bases on the fact that AB hopefully does not tell her story in order to fill screen time. To me her relationship with Terry parallels Bill and Sookies´ relationship with inverted genders. Both, Arlene and Bill have fucked up their lifes until now, mainly due to their liking of bad company. Nevertheless they managed to find a partner who might become their salvation. Instead of trying to be honest they hide real secrets which will lead to a break up and another deterioration of their situation. They will nearly destroy their lovers, too. I wonder how instable Terry will deal with Arlene´s betrayal? Arlene will stay a single mother but after the loss of Terry and the birth of another child this will be more difficult than ever before especially if we take into account that her position in Merlotte´s might be threatened by the younger and more beautiful and charming redhead Jessica. I wonder if this will be used as base for a * spoiler alert* transformation into evil, racist FOTS Arlene who supports the guys, who try to kill Sookie.

    • #7 by talktrueblood on July 16, 2010 - 5:01 pm

      I agree. I love Lorena and Talbot myself but someone is going to die. Since Russell is a reserved guy and an emotionless leader, I doubt he would motivated for revenge for any other reason than the death of his “child” and lover Talbot. I think the magister’s remark on the pain caused from the death of a child is definite foreshadowing.

      I LOVE your ideas about the parallels between Terry and Arlene in relation to Bill and Sookie. Very, very nice.
      AB could take the obession with the FOTS
      into the plot but he could also give her another obession.
      BUT since vampire hate and the FOTS will come into play later, it would tie in plot wise and I believe the stories will tie in.
      I am just confused about how the Norris plot will tie in.
      I am wondering about the health of the baby too after all the drinking and drug use during the maryann stuff.

      • #8 by Sarah on July 16, 2010 - 6:45 pm

        I think the magister’s remark on the pain caused from the death of a child is definite foreshadowing.

        Omg, they won´t kill off Pam, I hope. This would make me really really angry.
        And you are completly right to wonder about the health of Arlene´s baby. I predict that she will give birth to a disabled child, thus having to deal with a financial and emotional abyss. Often fundamentalists use people who suffer hard times and seemly “help” them so I can imagine that the FOTS will support Arlene in order to make her an ally. Arlene has not much knowlege of human nature and she also already has a great amount of prejudice what makes her an easy victim for such groups.

      • #9 by Sarah on July 16, 2010 - 6:49 pm

        the Norris Plot..I guess that the shifters come out and fundamentalist movements become incredibly dangerous thus both supernatural groups are forced to form an alliance of the unwilling. The residents of Bon Temps will be forced to chose sides and i wonder where people like Hoyt, Andy or Kenya will stay.

    • #10 by talktrueblood on July 16, 2010 - 8:07 pm

      I didn’t necessarily mean that the foreshadowing refers to Pam or I probably would have included that in my predictions. Pam will survive because Eric stalls the magister and then the magister is taken care of. Like I said, it could foreshadow Talbot’s death (most likely) or Jessica’s death or any child’s death and the pain for the maker.

      I thought it might be a little early for shifters to come out but I could be wrong, I guess it could come into play in the next season.

    SA is definitely into magic and probably has a coven of witches that she uses to do her bidding the same way that RE does with his Weres. My thoughts are that both SA and RE find Hallow’s werewitches a threat that has to be eliminated.

    • #12 by talktrueblood on July 16, 2010 - 4:47 pm

      I totally agree. I think if QSA fails to reveal the extent of that during her questioning by Eric, it could invalidate a potential marriage with RE and complete the take over of LA by Russell.

  5. #13 by Christine on July 16, 2010 - 3:44 pm

    Wait, what do you mean “Eric might meet the sun”?

    • #14 by talktrueblood on July 16, 2010 - 4:45 pm

      It does not mean he will complete that “meeting the sun” because Sookie will protect him.
      He will have to go out in the sun to survive an attack or bombing of some sort.

      • #15 by Christine on July 16, 2010 - 8:38 pm

        Ok, that only meant one thing to me, before you explained.

      • #16 by talktrueblood on July 16, 2010 - 8:44 pm

        I totally understand the confusion! Never be afraid to ask me questions or question anything I say in general, ever. I love to be challenged!

      • #17 by Christine on July 16, 2010 - 8:50 pm

        I’m the student in a room full of PhD’s. 🙂 Yes, I’ll have a lot of questions. 🙂

    • #18 by talktrueblood on July 16, 2010 - 9:02 pm

      thank you, your too kind really. Sometimes I feel like Renee makes me feel like a student myself. haha.

      • #19 by Christine on July 16, 2010 - 11:15 pm

        I like to leave no stone unturned. I’m so immersed in TB and all the story lines its all I think about.

        I’m amazed at the predictions here and over at ENA. Those girls are brilliant. I’m fairly new to all of this but it hit me hard. I’m in over my head but happy about it. But then I’m surrounded with like minded people. 🙂

      • #20 by talktrueblood on July 17, 2010 - 12:10 am

        Oh yes, me too actually, but I got so absorbed in a matter of weeks that I decided to start my own blog.

        It is so great to be surrounded by like minded people because sometimes they are hard to find, especially for a pay channel show like True Blood, despite the fact that it is very popular for a pay channel show.

        I started reading these blogs because I got a link to Sunnynala’s blog.
        It’s so great to be apart of these dicussions, from you and everyone else.

      • #21 by Christine on July 17, 2010 - 1:21 pm

        I believe I’ve seen Sunnynala’s name come up a time or two on ENA. I’ll have to find it and subscribe if you go there. You’re one of the TB Guru’s ya know. 😉

  6. #22 by Christine on July 16, 2010 - 3:48 pm

    *addendum: I almost think I read through all of this (comments included) without breathing and wide eyes. I know thats impossible but it sure felt like it.

    I sincerely appreciate the speculation and predictions. It fills in the Sunday to Sunday gaps. 🙂

    • #23 by talktrueblood on July 16, 2010 - 5:02 pm

      Oh yes! I just love the discussions that take place. It not only fills in the sunday to sunday or two week gaps, it helps me deal with the Bill lovers I am forced to watch the show with! haha
