I’m checking my watch and, well, we have ten days before True Blood.  Wheee, I say.  There’s another interview with Stephen Moyer from the folks at E!, and from the looks of it, it’ll seem that the second season will be oozing–no pun intended–with hot loving.  Perhaps you can throw the emphasis on hot, judging from the way Alan Ball made things, but this time you can expect to throw the emphasis on the love part.  Of course, it doesn’t hurt that Stephen is actually hooking up with Anna Paquin…

To sum up the new season, then, which will premiere on June 14, he can simply say this: “[It’s] beyond amazing … more than anybody imagined.  Honestly, I came out of the screening the other day with my jaw on the floor.  And I’ve read it, you know.”

Bill’s storyline?  “There’s no getting away from the fact that Bill is a vampire … [but] he wishes not for a human life, but for a moral life.  It’s not that he doesn’t want to feed on blood, it’s that he doesn’t want it to involve killing–but in his first season he kills as many people as the murderer … He’s torn.  He’s not going to do it just for the sake of it.  But if somebody hurts him or hurts his family or hurts his loved one … they’re history.”

And for him and Eric?  “Certainly in this season there is a moral hierarchy … There are things you do and things you don’t and if you do something within the vampire world that is f–ed up and against your fellow vamp, you are going to suffer for that.  I kind of like that idea that, you know, anything goes, but if you cross a line, you’re going to suffer for it.  Whether Eric is adhering to those vampire morals is important.”

Oh, of course, and for him and Sookie?  “I think that they love each other more than they have loved anything ever,” he said.  “Speaking from Bill’s point of view, she’s given him reason to live again.”

Okay, start melting.  But you can expect things to look a little better, especially with all that’s going on off screen.  “Anna and I met on this show,” Stephen said.  “They have seen our relationship grow by watching us on set. Now, you know, we kept it from them to begin with … We didn’t want people to think we were f–ing with their lives with something fickle.  But honestly, there’s no one I’d rather work with.  I really mean it.  I love working with her, and that’s how it all started, by falling in love on camera.”

The final question–well, in the actual interview, it’s the first question, but oh well–is this: are they toning down on all the, uhh, hotness?  Sensuality?  That’s a better term.  Okay.  Will they?  “I think Alan Ball and the writers do very well in pushing the envelope,” Stephen said.  “I think one of the things that drives me nuts about society is that you can watch hours about terrorists but you can’t look at a human nipple.  What the f– is that about? Sex is part of our lives.  It’s part of our existence.  So I kind of embrace the fact that we hit it full on the head.”

I guess it’s a no, then.
