HBO has released the new teaser for Season 5. It’s only 37 seconds long, and I think it’s worth watching because it gives us SO much insight into what’s coming next. And with that bit of sarcasm, and trying really hard not to say what I think about ABalls, let’s all take a moment to not scream and throw our computers out the nearest window.
Do y’all remember the teaser in which Sookie pulls up to Eric in her little yellow Honda Civic, and she calls his name, and he’s like “wuht?” That was nice. That was interesting, and for those of us who’ve read the books, it was even something to cheer about. This teaser bites the big one. “Nothing stays buried forever”? Are you kidding me? Anybody who’s watched all four seasons so far knows what, or rather who, didn’t stay buried. Sure, we can take it as more of a metaphor, about secrets such as: 1) What is Terry Bellefleur hiding and who’s Patrick? 2) Will Alcide be able to hide the fact he killed his packmaster? 3) Will the new magister (I think that’s Chris Meloni’s new role) find Eric and Bill and… well… issue the punishment that Nan skipped? So many questions… too bad that the teaser doesn’t address a single one.
I shall keep y’all apprised of any new “revelations.” Hopefully they’ll offer a bit more insight than this sorry excuse for 37-seconds’ worth of airtime. I’d rather have watched a commercial about Doritos.
