And the spoilers continue!
The always charming Kristin Bauer van Straten has given an interview to the New York Post in which she talks about Pam’s arc for the upcoming season of True Blood.
For the first time, it seems Pam will have her own storyline this year (can we get an AMEN?!). Obviously it will tie in somehow with Eric’s temporary incapacitation, and according to the interview this will involve her stepping up not only at Fangtasia, but in the “vampire hierarchy”.
PopWrap: What excited you coming into season four?
Kristin Bauer van Straten: I found out fairly early on that Pam is getting her own crazy storyline this season, which ramps up in the middle of the season…..We found out last season that this would happen and Pam would take over, so I’ve had all hiatus to wait for these scripts.
That’s it. I’m kicking off the campaign right this minute – Pam for Acting Sheriff of Area 5, dammit. I want to see Pam schooling Bill (again), and I want to see it NOW.
Kristin also talks about Pam’s killer wardrobe, and I don’t know about you all but I find the anticipation of what get up she’s going to appear in next almost as exciting as what is going to come out of her mouth.
Kristin: No matter how dire things get – and I mean, they get real dire this year – she still dresses for the occasion. In modern life we throw on sweats to go to Starbucks. The world is ending and Pam stops to think, “What is the perfect world ending outfit.”
She also drops a few hints about the Season 4 finale – and it sounds like shit is REALLY getting serious between the witches and the vampires.
Kristin: Yea. We took five nights to shoot that scene, which is incredible support from HBO. And because it’s such a big scene, where so much happens and involves so many people, I think unprecedented is the right word. Without giving anything away, there is so much at stake with that scene. We’ve got a lot of people sucked into that dilemma, it’s quite something.
…The way they’ve written the witches in this season is that what they do creates pretty interesting dilemmas for the vampires. It’s not a typical arm wrestle. It’s pretty creative how they have to combat one another.
Well, well. Between the FOTS, the witches, and most likely a new Queen on the Throne…season 4 isn’t a great time to be a vampire.
