With only one more episode left in the second season, “True Blood” is airing a teaser which utilizes Depeche Mode‘s “Corrupt”. The teaser for the season 2 finale was played on Sunday night without the band but HBO has since released a longer version online that includes scenes of the band recording the song.
The “True Blood” scenes are those from the title while the glimpses of the band are cut from the “Studio Sessions” featurette on the “Sounds of the Universe” box set. “Universe” is the twelfth studio album from the rock band which was released back on April 20, and “Corrupt” is the song that never got out as an individual sale.
The teaser is also aimed to promote HBO on Demand which has made available all the episodes from season 1 and 2 except for the upcoming September 13 episode.
Called “Beyond Here Lies Nothin’ “, the final episode sees the desperate attempts made by Sookie and Bill to stop Maryann from moving forward with her ultimate bestial sacrifice that requires Sookie to be the Maid of Honor. Deliberating on what may be his final move to save Sookie and the town, Sam places his trust, and his life, in a most unlikely ally.
In another side of the town, Hoyt struggles with Maxine’s endless stream of insults. Meanwhile, Sophie-Anne warns Eric to keep the lid on Bill’s inquisitiveness and Jason leads Andy into the heroic abyss.

Beyond Here Lies Nothin – Airing September 13, 2009 Season Finale
In the season two finale, the mayhem in Bon Temps reaches a fever pitch as Maryann prepares for her ultimate bestial sacrifice, conscripting Sookie to be Maid of Honor at the bloody nuptials. Meanwhile, Sophie-Anne warns Eric to keep the lid on Bill’s inquisitiveness; Jason leads Andy into the heroic abyss; and Hoyt has a hard time swallowing Maxine’s endless stream of insults. Deliberating on what may be his final move to save Sookie and the town, Sam is forced to put his trust, and his life, in a most unlikely ally. (Michael Ausiello)
In the final episodes of this season, you’ll see a very interesting division take place among the characters. Pay attention to those for whom supernatural events are not quite as super. They are different, and their differences will be explored in future seasons. (TV Guide)
Maryann ain’t gonna stop coming for Sam – she needs a juicy sacrifice for her god. Sam keeps thinking it might be better for Bon Temps and all his friends if he gives himself up in exchange for their lives. Luckily, Sam’s got a savior waiting around the corner. (Watch With Kristin)
Nelsan Ellis (Lafayette Reynold) revealed some interesting information about the radiating light that appeared from Sookie’s hand: “Well, I read the books, so I think she’s part fairy. That was her fairy power.” According to Rutina Wesley (Tara Thornton), “[Sookie's power] is a funky little thing,” but she also says the show won’t answer that question for certain any time in season two.” (TrueBloodNet)
When asked who is going to help Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) out of trouble, Tara Buck, who plays Fangtasia waitress Ginger said: “We’ve got Sam (Sam Trammell) running from Maryann (Michelle Forbes), and he may actually…” Tara wants to keep her job, so she couldn’t say everything, but he may actually seek refuge with Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård) and Pam (Kristin Bauer) at Fangtasia in Shreveport, La. (TrueBloodNet)
Carrie Preston (Arlene Fowler) was asked if Arlene and Terry are going to stay together. She said: “When you’re possessed on the show, the next day, you don’t remember. So they can start over—like a reset, a reboot. I think Arlene is constantly searching for the perfect man, and maybe he’s going to be the one. I don’t know.” (TrueBloodNet)

Valerie tells us, “Isabel runs with the Dallas vampires, but she kind of becomes friends with both Bill and Eric. And she likes Sookie. [Isabel] has a penchant for humans, and she’s sensitive to this love story they have.”
Carrie Preston, who plays Arlene, says, “The second-season finale is only two weeks after the end of the first season. Things get crazy in Bon Temps, Louisiana, I’ll tell you that.” Wait, Arlene doesn’t die, does she? “Not so far!” Source: Kristin on E!Online
Next week on True Blood, when poor dead zombie Daphne’s (Ashley Jones) body is discovered, people start to suspect that Sam (Sam Trammell) killed her. (Watch With Kristin)
Sookie and Eric grow closer over the next few episodes, after he is injured and needs her help. (Watch With Kristin)
Alexander Skarsgård talking about his character: “Eric was kind of misunderstood. A lot of people would come up to me and say, ‘Oh, you’re the evil…the bad guy.’ I always had to defend him because there’s more to him than that,” says Alexander. “I actually got a chance to show that [this season]. I mean, he is a badass, of course, but I’m just happy because as an actor, you shouldn’t play the same note for two years. You have to show different layers and go deeper and show that there’s more to the character than that. And I’ve had fun this season because I have been able to show that he does have a sensitive side, a loyal side. He doesn’t care for a lot of people, and not for a lot of vampires either, but the ones he cares about he’s very, very, very loyal and devoted to.” (Watch With Kristin)
