Yesterday, HBO sent out some great photos of cast members appearing in True Blood Season 5. One of those photos was of Michael McMillian as Reverend Steve Newlin, but very surprisingly he was bearing vampire fangs.
You may remember that in one of the last scenes of Season 4, we saw Jason open his door to find Rev. Newlin waiting outside, who immediately clicked open his fangs. Now this new photo has been released from HBO with Michael sporting the pointy teeth.
When I saw the scene last summer, so many questions ran through my head and when I saw this photo yesterday, even more came to mind, such as:
- Are they real fangs or is he in a Halloween costume pretending? Remember, Jessica had just left Jason’s house wearing her Red Riding Hood costume.
- Or, is he a vampire? If so, who turned him? - I have to admit that I am having trouble wrapping my head around the fact that he might be a vampire.
- Is he recently turned or has he always been one and hidden it from us pretending to be human?
- Could he have been the one who released Russell Edgington from the cement and then was turned by him? Or was he turned by one of the new vampires or possibly even one of the vampire authority?
Learning the answer to these questions is only the tip of the iceberg of questions I have about the new season. However, the good news is we won’t have to wait too much longer before we find out all the answers since True Blood Season 5′s first episode will air on June 10, just a little over a month away.
