Maryann’s True Identity Revealed!

Thursday, July 30th, 2009

After showing up at the local police department at the end of Season 1, this mysterious and somewhat sinister stranger has become a fixture around Bon Temps.  Since her arrival stranger things than usual have been happening around the small town including Sookie being attacked by an unknown creature, and residents blacking out during Maryann’s many parties.

On the surface Maryann may seem to be a do-gooder type with her rosy self-improvement disposition but her true identity and her real reason for showing up in town are much darker as revealed in Sunday’s episode of True Blood®.

Will Sam be able to escape Maryann and help free the people of Bon Temps of her influence? Tune in next Sunday to find out!

In the meantime, stock up on merchandise for Bon Temps’ newest maenad.

It’s official! The Tru Blood drink has now been “de-fictionalized” and emerges into reality as a delicious blood orange carbonated drink.  The beverage is pulled from the veins of the hit HBO® series True Blood®. Meticulously crafted, the Tru Blood Drink is an exact replica of the bottle design as seen on the show. The 14oz glass Tru Blood bottle is stained in a rich red, with raised Tru Blood English lettering and matching Japanese Kanji characters.

This blood orange flavored soda is slightly tart, lightly sweet and subtly carbonated. Designed to taste great while matching the appearance of Bill’s favorite drink, the drink pours like a regular soda, but its standing appearance in a glass is stormy and mysterious.

Be the first to own the Tru Blood Drink when it ships early exclusively at the HBO Shop®!
