At the end of last week’s episode of “True Blood” you may have noticed an unusual character who enters the shop where Jessica was trying on dresses only to bolt when she approached him. Enamored, she gives chase only to find his Volkswagon Bug abandoned in the middle of a field. That characters’s name was “Claude” and he’s played by Giles Matthey. You can keep an eye out for him tonight in Episode 5.04, “We’ll Meet Again”, and he’s sticking around for the rest of the season.
In the episode, “Eric (Alexander Skarsgård) and Bill (Stephen Moyer) have doubts they will survive the search for Russell (Denis O’Hare). Sookie (Anna Paquin) opens up to Alcide (Joe Manganiello). An irate Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) unwittingly puts Sookie’s life in danger. At Authority headquarters, Roman (Christopher Meloni) and Salome (Valentina Cervi) continue interrogating Nora (Lucy Griffiths) about the Sanguinistas – and a possible traitor within the Council. Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) forces Tara (Rutina Wesley) to toe the line; Andy (Chris Bauer) and Jason (Ryan Kwanten) go to a burlesque party; Sam’s (Sam Trammell) shifter friends invite him for a run; Terry (Todd Lowe) flashes back to a deadly night in Iraq; Hoyt (Jim Parrack) tests the fangbanger waters; Sookie drowns her sorrows.”
I recently hopped on the phone with Giles to talk about his role and the arc of Season 5 in general. We also touch on the departure of longtime show runner Alan Ball. Head inside to check it out. READ MORE
