    Oh my poor Jason :’( I knew Chrystal couldn’t be trusted, that b*tch!!!! I always thought she knew more than she lead on to in the books too, about Jason’s whereabouts.

    VikingLover Reply:

    Also, in the books Crystal heard when Jason was taken and did nothing to stop it. She didn’t even call the police. She just went home, went to sleep, and told no one. I always wondered if the TB writers would pick up on that and run with it.

    [Reply]

    Freyja Reply:

    Yes I always thought that was very suspicious, I’m sure the writers would pick up on that.

    [Reply]

    LovetheViking Reply:

    Agreed Freyja. Crystal has always been suspicious, especially in the books being at Jason’s house and not advising anyone that she heard anything. It was a real WTF moment for me when I read it. I always thought that her sense of smell should have picked up Felton.

    Freaky. :shock:

    I’m kinda in shock that this is in episode three… That kinda shakes things up in regards to if we’ll get the AE x Jason scene. I really wanted that, but now the timeline is a bit tight. They seem to have been torturing him for a bit.

    I can’t wait for Crystal to die.

    Is Jason’s foot in a cast? :?

    [Reply]

    Ashley Reply:

    Yeah. The only possibility is maybe 4.02, when Sookie first finds AE.

    [Reply]

    Serena Reply:

    It could be that AE is the credits cliffhanger of episode 2, and not the end of episode cliffhanger, that could be Jason getting kidnapped. IDK. Its too hard to figure out in any certainty at this point. lol.

    I think that Jason and Amnesiac Eric will not be meeting. That will be one of the changes. I was reading book 4 and came across this line

    “winding through the black and silent woods on my nice, level driveway—that, in fact, Eric had had re-graveled for me. And that was why Eric was sitting in my car right now, instead of running through the night like a giant white rabbit. He’d had the intelligence to give me what I really wanted. (Of course, he’d also wanted me to go to bed with him for months. But he’d given me the driveway because I needed it.)”

    In the books Sookie had a reason to help Eric and she did not have as much anger as TV Sook, so I am thinking after the initial help, she is the one that asks for money from Pam and Co. Maybe for her house. I think that’s would AB would do and I don’t have a problem with it, even though all the BL’s will love it.

    I am fine with Jason not being in the picture. He always hated Vamps. But I do want Lafayette helping out. He likes Eric!

    [Reply]

    Ashley Reply:

    I think Laffy will help out. I think he’ll be directly involved. I could see Sookie asking for money too. But how do we know Eric won’t help Sookie out with her house in some way before he gets amnesia, after she gets back from Fairy World? Based off the spoilers, that could be the case. That might give Sookie a reason to help Eric as well.

    [Reply]

    *C.K. Reply:

    I hope Eric is the one to fix her house. Yes, I can see her asking for money but maybe Eric will just give her money after he gets his memory back. I really enjoy seeing Lafayette and Eric together so that will be fun. Actually, I think Eric and Laffy are a like in some ways. I do think Laffy is starting to warm up to Eric. Plus if a year has past Laffy will have been working for Eric all that time and getting to know Eric and Pam a little. I’m all for their bromancing.

    So Crystal’s cucoo for cocoa puffs and she’s in on Jason’s forced transformation it looks like. Sucks to be Jason. :(

  • Ashley

    This is 4.03 btw.

    [Reply]

  • AB Negative

    I was hoping they wouldn’t go down that road with Jason. I wonder if when he does change, he will fully change rather than being part man as in the books. Maybe he will rule Hotshot like Calvin did.

    [Reply]

    bloodboundnorse Reply:

    Yes, lets hope for a full non-cheesy change and he doesn’t end up looking like Crack Fox,bwaha!

    Wow, they are really teasing us with some bookie scenes! I keep going back to ALan Ball say “The books work…” and I hope so far, these promos are a good indication he might do it right this season. I am waiting for the other shoe to drop though once we actually start watching it.

    [Reply]

  • This is fantastic! This storyline is going to show that Lorena didn’t turn Bill into the self-loathing, violent, liar that he is. She just made him a vampire.

    [Reply]

  • FANinAL

    Crystal is certainly giving off creepy vibes. If find it interesting that AB seems to be returning to the books a bit more for S4. Both Eric and Jason seem to be getting at least part of their canon storylines.

    Am I crazy or does this imply that CRYSTAL is the one to bring him over in TB?

    [Reply]

    Freyja Reply:

    I think Felton might be in on it too or the others from Hot Shot. I don’t think she’s in on this alone.

    [Reply]

    Renée Reply:

    Either Felton is in on this, or Jason made such a good impression on the folks in HS that they wanted to make him their leader. Either way, Crystal needs to be crucified.

    [Reply]

    NewlyTurned Reply:

    IDK about Felton… I think he’s gonna die or be in jail, and that’s why Crystal is back in Hot Shot. She could choose to turn Jason to protect her–especially if it works out that Felton is imprisoned.

    [Reply]

    Renée Reply:

    According to IMDB, so far Felton is as appearing in eps 2-4.

    Holy Deliverance, Batman! Poor Jason and WTF does Crystal have in her hair?

    [Reply]

    Ashley Reply:

    I think it’s something to curl her hair…she’s basically a crazy lady with curlers and a nightgown LOL. This seen reminds me of the movie Misery or something. Gives me the creeps.

    WaitingForSunday Reply:

    I was just thinking of that, Ashley. AB is inspired by such a wide variety of sources, why not Stephen King? I hope Crystal doesn’t go full-out Annie on Jason – yikes! I think she partially dismembered that guy.

    SVB Reply:

    She hacked his goddamn FOOT OFF with an ax. I am still scarred by that book.

    [Reply]

    Ashley Reply:

    Ah, okay. But she broke his legs before that right? And he was tied to the bed. Ive only seen the movie, not read the books, so they might have changed something. But this whole Jason scene eerily reminded me of it.

    Maybe she is preparing for her wedding or a ceremony like crazy Maryanne. I hope Jason doesn’t marry her in the show.

  • skargasmic

    Coming on this blog makes me feel like I am missing a day…I thought today is not March 20th…lol! Love this place though. Jason as I think we have all speculated will definitely have the WTF moment of the season. From what we have seen of these “waiting sucks” promos makes a one year time jump not very conceivable IMO. The reason being is that these are the things that would have occurred in the year time frame and I for one am not interested in seeing them being told as flashbacks. Just saying :)

    [Reply]

    Ashley Reply:

    But the way we think it will go down is not with flashbacks. It would probably be like them showing the conclusion of Bill vs. the Queen, then Tommy/Sam, and then Sookie would come back to BT from the Fae World and it would already be one year ahead. No explanation, no flashbacks. She would be thrown into the action of BT a year later from when she left, and would realize that time had passed much faster in BT than where she was.

    [Reply]

    SVB Reply:

    Yeah I’m not seeing a ton of flashbacks either.

    With this particular storyline, there is no reason Jason can’t have been in HS for a year or whatever before he is turned. It wasn’t that long in the books – but I’m not seeing anything on the show that is counter to it going down that way.

    @ Skargasmic
    :lol: It’s cos SVB is here in Oz where it’s Sunday afternoon now. When we visit US sites we’re going back in time, so this makes a nice change.

    I hope Jason becomes a full panther, not some hideous half human mutant.

    heart's desire Reply:

    ITA Millarca – I do NOT want to know what half-panther looks like. :lol:

    [Reply]

  • MASpencer

    Well this certainly creates some confusion regarding supe genetics. :lol: I didn’t think they were going to go the bitten werepanther route, on account of it not seeming to fit into the shifter genetic rules they set up. But I have to say, I’m pretty excited they’re going there.

    Anyway, I LOVED this clip– SO CREEPY. And confusing. But mostly creepy.

    [Reply]

    booksookie Reply:

    I’m not sure about that… It could be that the repeated bites act as triggers into gene mutation. That’s where the very small differences in the were/shifter and human genome also come in handy: if only so many of the gene loci are different, gene mutation is in the realm of possibility. IMO, the transformation wouldn’t be complete, however! And besides, that would raise many issues as to the threat that such a possibility would pose to the humans: why in-breed if in this manner you can guarantee the new blood influx?

    [Reply]

    booksookie Reply:

    I was referring to a complete transformation in the final part of my comment. Sorry, I don’t always make sense. English is my third language.

    [Reply]

    MASpencer Reply:

    LOL! I was waiting for your input, booksookie!!!

    My guess? It’s magic. Seriously. I don’t think they’re going to give a genetic explanation for this. Although I would love to see them attempt it. :lol:

    [Reply]

    booksookie Reply:

    Well, if it’s magic, then I guess everything is possible, but frankly that would be a bit anticlimactic, as far as I’m concerned, and way too easy an explanation: “It doesn’t make any sense? Why, it’s magic!”… I was kind of thrilled by the fact that they chose another direction different from CH’s perspective, I thought it was better then assigning all to the supernatural, hence unexplainable. But that’s just how I am, as I told you before, a bit too logical for my own good! LOL

    So now we know for sure that shed they built was for this whole experience Jason will be put through.

    I was kinda dreading this storyline. After seeing this teaser, I’m thinking that it might turn out to be more interesting than I’d thought. Here’s hoping!

    [Reply]

  • VikingLover

    Duuuude! I freaking knew that b****tch couldn’t be trusted! I was always suspicious of the scene where she let Felton into Jason’s house in S3. I always found that odd.

    Well, I must say that after watching this clip, I am definitely interested in Jason’s storyline this coming season.

    MASpencer Reply:

    Hell yes. This is a definite upgrade from last season… color me pleasantly surprised.

    “Your being reborn, into one of us”

    Sounds like Crystal wants to keep Jason for herself, but I think it was Felton who bit and scratched him.

    Wonder why he has a cast on his foot (leg)?

    Seems like they are sticking fairly close to the 4th book.
    But I’m sure Alan BlueBalls will throw a few wrenches our way!

    [Reply]

    Serena Reply:

    I’ve been giving that cast some thought,.. If you want to keep your prisoner from escaping the easiest thing to do is break his legs. But I wonder if it has anything to do with his re-birthing process and that is part and parcel in “breaking” in a panther. Possibly if someone in Hot Shot wanted to “keep” Jason around before Felton ever returned, so they broke his legs. I think the prisoner angle makes the most sense to me, but with this show, who knows? :lol:

    [Reply]

    HelenaHandbasket Reply:

    Break his legs!
    Sounds like Kathy Bates in “Misery”

    “You cockadoodee!”

  • Emily

    My gawd, if they’re using AE and Panther Jason as TEASERS can you imagine what else is going down this year that they don’t us to find out about?! We’re in for a crazy season me thinks.

    [Reply]

    Amy Reply:

    I have a feeling we are being given all the book spoilers so that Alan Ball can lull is into false sense of ‘oh, he is following the books’ and then BOOM! everything changes :) I think the next spoiler will be maybe that of Sookie and Alcide, maybe at a witch shop or something…

    [Reply]

    Ashley Reply:

    I didn’t think the spoiler we got was Sookie and Alcide at the witch shop.

    I wonder how much Alcide will be involved in the witch storyline at first.

    [Reply]

    Ashley Reply:

    I am excited for Sookie’s clip though, and to see who else is involved.

    [Reply]

  • Crystal is utterly creepy in this clip. Reminds me of someone from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Ugh. I’m scared.
    I don’t know if I like this development, though. I didn’t like werepantherJason in the books very much, kinda cheesy imho… I don’t know. I guess so far I appreciated Jason because he is human at 100%. With Sookie being more fairy than human, Jason turned into a panther, Lafayette having witch powers, is someone still human in this show?

    [Reply]

    Freyja Reply:

    I think his story could be interesting, more than in the books if they do it right. But I also don’t like the show making almost every interesting character into something supernatural. The only humans left would be annoying Arlene (with her demon baby), Terry, Hoyt and vampire protesters.

    [Reply]

    *C.K. Reply:

    I also want some characters to just be human. Everyone doesn’t have to be supernatural.

    [Reply]

    *C.K. Reply:

    I did find the Jason werepanther story in the books. I hope his transformations are in full panther. I didn’t like that Jason didn’t fully transform in the books. Jason like being a panther in the books. Jason will probably still stay with crazy Crystal like he did in the books.

    [Reply]

    Ashley Reply:

    And Portia and all the Belleflurs. And Hoyt’s mom. But yeah that’s about it.

    [Reply]

  • Seems to me that they would be doing this mostly because they can force him to identify with them (identify with his captors). This way, he won’t ever be totally human again so he might feel like he needs to stick with them to be accepted.

    [Reply]

  • allabouteric

    ok so Crystal is batsh!t!!! haha…totally getting some major Kathy Bates vibes here :D
    AB seems to be sticking to the books for at least 2 of his major plotlines this season. What I am really curious about is Bill’s storyline. I feel that very little has been leaked about his arc this season and I wonder if we are in for a major doozy!!?? I was actually surprised that the AE storyline was so blatantly given away. It might have been to re-assure fans or to work up fan enthusiasm and I think that it was a good move. But still why this super secrecy with the Bill plotline? Does AB have something major up his sleeves??

    [Reply]

    Ashley Reply:

    Maybe he really is turning Bill into a villian, LOL. (I don’t think so but I can dream) :)

    Yeah we don’t know much about Bill. That said, do we know all that much about AE, besides that he will have amnesia and was cursed by witches? We don’t know any details. I think we will have lots of surprises coming, so it’s best to be prepared. And not necessarily bad surprises, but ykwim.

    SVB Reply:

    He did the same thing with Bill last year. We really got nothing spoiler wise. He seems to be under some illusion that people actually give a shit what Bill’s doing.

    Lyta Reply:

    yes and no
    I do not care about the character of Bill, but at the same time
    Yes, I worry, because that is where I will scream, I always think that there would be logical for Bill to become King for example, but I also think that TB is not very logical or follow rules, provided it reaches the goal they want achieve with such a change. But the release of promos just begun, I still think we’ll have something to Bill by the end of them. like last year they are waving in what we really want to divert our attention from what they really want to hide in this case the new position of Bill (as you said as if it mattered most) JMHO.
    Or AB gave up surprise us if things happen like in the books or not, and they are just hiding what they are going to change.

    [Reply]

    Ashley Reply:

    I think they don’t want us to know what’s going on with Bill to maintain the surprise. Last year that wanted everyone to be surprised at Bill’s demise, although we all weren’t. This year probably whatever he is doing now that Sookie isn’t around.

    We still don’t know if he gets this position pre-amnesia or not though.

    But I don’t think Billw will be king, although I guess he technically could be.
    But I don’t worry too much about what he’s doing right now.

    Since we know there is a time jump, I wonder if this will be a flashback. Or it took Jason a year to decide to become a werepanther. Hhhhhmmmmm…..

    [Reply]

    Ashley Reply:

    I don’t think Jason decided anything…I think he’s being made to do it. When we saw Crystal last in the previous Season she was leaving with Felton…her and Jason weren’t even together.

    Wow! Compared to last week’s “Promo Sucks” w/Sam & Luna, this rocks. Something told me Crystal was going to be actively involved in this. As someone said above, she knew in DTTW – she would have smelled him, and honestly so would have Calvin. It was a tidy, glossed-over mystery wrap-up, particularly w/Sam at the end and his sudden recollection of Felton’s love torch for Crystal and Sookie never realizing that the folks in HS were panthers, not weres. I also agree that Lafayette is a great candidate for helping Sookie find him. I DO think Felton is integral to this hostage scenario, and still theorize that the WTF moment has his name written all over it.

    I’m getting a major “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane” vibe from Crystal – and loving it. Give me a psycho over a victim any day….*thumbs up*!
