True Blood Season 4 Episode 38 'You Smell Like Dinner' Preview from The HD Room
Tonight HBO will debut the second episode 'You Smell Like Dinner' of True Blood season 4. Well, sort of. Technically speaking the episode has been available for almost a week already at HBOGo.com. Some of you have already seen it while others have not.
For the group that isn't interested in or capable of watching the next episode of True Blood online or via a mobile device right now, I've cobbled together a trio of clips and the 'You Smell Like Dinner' promo spot for you to watch below in anticipation of the on-air debut later tonight. Some, but not all of the story lines set to play out in this episode are Sookie's discovery of Bill's revamped house, a clash between Hoyt and vampire protesters, Jason's captivity, Arlene becoming increasingly spooked by her baby, the return of Tara to Bon Temps, the increasing power of the witches and their threat to vampires, and Eric making a proposition to Sookie.
'You Smell Like Dinner' is expected to be the only episode of True Blood this season that debuts early at HBOGo.com. If there's more I'll be sure to pass along the word.
True Blood season 4 episode 38 'You Smell Like Dinner' debuts on air tonight at 9pm EST/PST on HBO.
This interview sounds like the last few Ryan has done, but I don't see much else, the episode promos are in last night's post. From Jethro at THR-
'True Blood's' Ryan Kwanten on Jason's Tight Friendships, Tight Situations, and His Tight UniformThe HBO star talks about all the uncomfortable positions his character finds himself in Season 4.

Ryan Kwanten as Jason Stackhouse in HBO's "True Blood."In the year in which Sookie (Anna Paquin) was away in fairyland, Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) has made some big changes in the newest season of True Blood. He has become a cop, began taking care of Crystal’s (Lindsay Pulsipher) werepanther relatives, and he has done a fair amount of growing up.
“This is the season of the biggest growth for Jason,” Kwanten tells The Hollywood Reporter. “He started, in my view, very low on the evolutionary totem pole, so he could only go up. This is a real season of where the young boy turns into a man. He’s been given a position of power and he’s now a cop. He’s forced to try and raise a whole tribe of people, and then eventually fight for his life.”
The Season 4 opener found Jason as a sort of drug counselor to new sheriff, Andy (Chris Bauer), who’s fighting a very strong addiction to "V" aka vampire’s blood.
“The little dynamic duo,” Kwanten calls the pair. “It’s almost like they’re struck by lightning and Jason takes on Andy’s authority and Andy very much starts acquiring a lot of Jason’s naivety and addictiveness.”
“It’s scary that Jason is helping anyone,” he adds. “The fact that he is sort of experienced in addiction, he knows the highs and lows, so he can talk Andy through it."
As a deputy now, Jason finds himself in a whole new position of authority in Bon Temps that comes with wearing the uniform. Oh, and that uniform. It wouldn’t be True Blood if the men’s best physical assets weren’t highlighted, right?
“It’s even tighter off-screen,” he says. “There was a good amount of laughing when I tried it on and then some squeamish looks as if to say, ‘Hang on a sec, what if you need to run in this thing?’”
“Running in it is relatively painful,” he continues. “So if you ever see Jason running in it, you can see a slight tinge of pain in my eyes.”
In fact, the show seems to be exploring a twisted connection between pain and Jason’s “do-gooder” transformation. That seems to be all that his new attitude is getting him in the beginning of this season. For example, when we last saw him doing a food drop at the werepanther settlement, Hotshot, it ends with an ambush and Jason trapped in a freezer.
“This season really forces him to confront [the werepanthers] full-on, because he’s now dating one,” he tells us. “When [Crystal] turns out to be not what he expects, there’s some very interesting repercussions.”
We’ll soon discover that Crystal and her kin have very specific plans for Jason. So, have we seen the end of his tight deputy uniform-wearing days?
“He needs the skills that he used to become a cop to try and get out of that icebox and get out of that hellhole he’s found himself in,” Kwanten explains. “I’m going to say no, but the harder answer is how he actually does it.”
Bad News, Good News- I cant think of a better finale, unless something happens then that leads to his re-entry in S5. Crack cement, crack. Russell!
True Blood's third season (much like the rest of the series) was nothing if not uneven. Some of its best moments, however, came from the vampire king Russell Edgington, played masterfully by Denis O'Hare. Edgington was the season's overarching villain, and was dispatched in the season three finale when Eric Northman and Bill Compton teamed up to bury Russell in a construction site full of concrete. As far as we know, he's still there. But when will he make his return?
Talking to Film School Rejects, actor O'Hare dished a bit about when Russell would be making his return to the HBO vampire drama.
"It was up in the air," he said. "They were definitely bringing me back, it was just a matter of if they wanted to bring me back the last couple episodes or bring me back at the beginning."
And what was the verdict? "They decided to do it at the beginning of season 5."
