We have to admit this current season of “True Blood” is off to a much better start than last year. Despite just premiering last weekend, the casting news isn’t over yet. Read on for the info that will have you doing the time warp.
TrueBlood.net reports that Terminator 2 star Robert Patrick has signed on for a recurring guest role as Alcide’s father, Jackson Herveaux. We’ll meet him in Episode 5.09, “Everybody Wants to Rule the World”, when we flash back to when Alcide and Debbie Pelt were teenagers in the 1980s. Back then, Jackson was “powerful, inspiring, and heroic”, but in present day he’s pretty much given up on life. He’ll be a recurring guest star.
In the interim check out the skinny on this week’s episode.
Episode 5.02: “Authority Always Wins”
Debut: SUNDAY, JUNE 17 (9:00-10:00 p.m.)
At the Vampire Authority headquarters in New Orleans, Bill and Eric meet Salome (Valentina Cervi) and become acquainted with the Authority’s interrogation techniques. Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) recalls her human life as the madam of the Comstock Brothel in San Francisco and her first encounter with Eric. Werewolves J.D. (Louis Herthum) and Rikki (Kelly Overton) pay tribute to Marcus, but Alcide refuses to participate or take his rightful place as the new packmaster. Martha Bozeman (Dale Dickey) shows up wanting to see her granddaughter, causing conflict for Sam and Luna (Janina Gavankar). Fearing Russell’s return, Sookie procures a home-protection system; Arlene (Carrie Preston) tries to get to the bottom of Terry’s erratic behavior; Steve Newlin stops by with an offer for Jessica; and Jason feels the brunt of his womanizing ways. Written by Mark Hudis; directed by Michael Lehmann.
