Danniel Kenneth Writer

Every week during season six, Radio.com checks in with “True Blood” Music Supervisor Gary Calamar, who has been nominated for GRAMMYs twice for his work on the show. This week, at Gary’s suggestion, they spoke to Daniel Kenneth, who wrote this week’s episode.

The song — “Don’t You Feel Me” by an fairly obscure 1960s artist named Damon — could have been written for Warlow and Sookie. Warlow, for those just tuning in, is a faerie-vampire hybrid who has the ability that all vampires want: the ability to walk in the daylight. While Sookie had resisted Warlow’s charms up until now, even threatening to kill him the last time they got naked together, (spoiler alert) this week’s episode saw her saving Warlow by hiding him in the faerie plane (where his maker Billith can’t detect him). As an added bonus, she also consummated their relationship, albeit after tying him to a gravestone at his request. Sex is never simple around Bon Temps, is it?

For his writing debut, True Blood writer Daniel Kenneth choose “Don’t You Feel Me” as the title of the episode. Clearly, he was feeling Damon’s song.

“It’s this amazing little gem first heard on a ’60s psychedelic rock compilation Forge Your Own Chains on Now-Again Records a few years back,” he tells Radio.com. ”Egon [aka, Now-Again Records founder Eothen Alapatt], a big fan of the show himself, used to send the True Blood writers’ office Now-Again Records releases over the years. They all made their way into my own iTunes library, but this song stuck in my head.”

Kenneth thought it apropos for the episode on many levels, particularly for Sookie and Warlow.

“Time works differently in the faerie plane, and we designed it as sort of a one-act play within the episode,” he said. “There’s similar maker/progeny connections going on with other characters — Bill and Jessica, Eric and Willa — but I loved it as a title in regards to Sookie and Warlow because it’s a statement. They’re telling Bill, ‘Don’t you feel me.’”

However, the lyrics also pertain to the pair’s budding relationship. As Kenneth points out, “It speaks to Sookie and Warlow as two fated lovers, possibly destined to be with one another forever — day and night.”

There was just one other music moment on this week’s True Blood. When Terry Bellefleur went to Lafayette’s house to entrust him with the key to his safe deposit box, Lucinda Williams’ “Born To Be Loved” was audible. From the Americana star’s 2011 album Blessed, the song was another choice from Kenneth.

“I love this song so much, and thought it’s sweet melodic lyrics about how precious every life is (and though still quite somber in tone), it could play tragically under a scene with Terry as he continues with his plan to kill himself,” Kenneth explained. “There’s reasons to live life everywhere — including the on the radio — that he just doesn’t want to, but more importantly can’t, hear.”

It’s not the first time Williams has been heard on True Blood.

“In the very first episode we used ‘Lake Charles,’ which worked beautifully as Bill and Sookie were just getting acquainted,” True Blood music supervisor Gary Calamar points. “And we were honored that she wrote ‘Kiss Like Your Kiss’ for us in season three. Lucinda, who is a Louisiana gal, is of course brilliant songwriter with a beautiful twang in her voice. She’s modern and classic. A perfect sound for the soundtrack of our friends in Bon Temps!”

    This guy is a new writer, so I guess that explains the plot holes in the episode. Honestly, I don’t feel this episode title at all. It seems like the writer chose it just because he loves the song, not because it highlights anything that’s happening in the episode. I mean the whole point of going to that fairy plane is that Bill can’t sense Sookie or Warlow there, so how can they be sending him a message? Doesn’t make sense at all.

    Not feeling the entire Warlow plotline at all. A fairy vampire defies all common sense and contradicts TB’s entire mythology. Fairies turn into dust when they are drained of blood, which means there are no corpses to fill with vampire blood, so how can fae become vampire? Is Warlow alive or dead, warm or cold, fertile or sterile? Why they couldn’t have made him an evil fairy like in the books, I have no idea. I guess the only way they could have made the character interesting was to make him a vampire. Otherwise, the fairies are just boring and lame and not scary or alien like in the books at all. And of course they have to keep Bill Compton relevant, so they have to tie him to Sookie and her romantic interests in some big way and keep pushing the same pathology on us over and over again. Like we needed another self-loathing vampire psychopath.

    “Time works differently in the faerie plane…

    could this be a “time jump” forward?

    but it would either leave us with no knowledge of what happens to ALL OUR CHARACTERS except for Warlow and Sookie, which could be disastrous for the Fae in that plane as he is a vampire that SHE took there.

    Or we see the rest of the cast in all their troubles and glory and we don’t see Sookie or Warlow for several years of regular time.

    makes no sense to me. am I missing several things or what?
