True Blood Trivia Season 2

 

  • Episode 2×01: Nothing But the Blood

    • The first scene takes place right after the previous episode. However, Sookie’s hair is a lot more curly.
    • The second season is based on Charlaine Harris’ second Sookie Stackhouse novel Living Dead in Dallas. However, in the book Lafayette was found dead in Andy’s car while in the series it was Miss Jeanette.
  • Episode 2×02: Keep This Party Going

    • No Trivia for this episode.
  • Episode 2×03: Scratches

    • According to the t-shirt that Sookie is given to wear, the address of Fangtasia is 44 Industrial Drive, Shreveport, Louisiana.
    • In the scene where Eric asks Pam and Chow to go search the woods, Eric says “Du hörde vad jag sa” which is Swedish and means “You heard what I said”.
    • Dr. Ludwig says that Komodo dragons will bite and poison it’s prey then track it for days waiting for it to die. This is not true. Although they do have saliva rich with bacteria, and that a bite from one could cause infections, Komodo dragons mostly eat carrion, or animals that are already dead. When a Komodo does attack live prey, it ambushes it, attacking the legs of larger prey or the throats of smaller prey, and bites until its prey is dead. Then depending on the size of the prey, the Komodo will either tear pieces, or swallow it whole.

      *** Actually her comment can be true. On the BBC documentary Life, we see a pack of Komodos stalk a water buffalo. One of the Komodos bites it in the leg and they subsequently wait a week for the bite to kill it before they attack it while weakened and eat it. Exactly how the doctor describes it.
  • Episode 2×04: Shake and Fingerpop

    • Jessica learns how to glamour in this episode.
    • Music

      Louisiana Hot Sauce- Sammy Kershaw

  • Episode 2×06: Hard-Hearted Hannah

    • Tidbit: The song that Bill plays on the piano in 1926 is the same one that he was practicing in last season’s finale before Jessica was returned to him.
  • Episode 2×07: Release Me

    • The black-and-white movie that Tara and Eggs watch at Sookie’s house is the 1958 film The Screaming Skull. The b-movie is best known for having appeared on Mystery Science Theater 3000.
    • In this episode, it is revealed that Maryann is a Maenad. As correctly stated in the episode, a Maenad is a female follower of Dionysus, the god of wine and the inspirer of ecstasy.
  • Episode 2×08: Timebomb

    • While Lorena cries blood in this episode, both Jessica and Isobel also cry during this hour (Isobel even sniffles) but we do not see any blood stream down their cheeks.
    • Based on what happened to Jessica, we can surmise that whatever state a person’s body is in when they are turned is the state that their body will return to whenever they are injured.
    • Vampire Mythology

      In this episode, we find out that older vampires may require very little blood to survive.
  • Episode 2×09: I Will Rise Up

True Blood Trivia Season 3

 

  • Episode 3×01: Bad Blood

    • First appearance by Zeljko Ivanek (“The Magister”) since the season 1 episode “I Don’t Wanna Know”.
    • It was revealed that Lorena’s last name is Krasiki.
    • Jessica calls Hoyt from a cellphone, but when she hangs up on him there is a click sound. Unless she slammed the cell phone, they do not make click sounds when hung up, they make tone sounds.
  • Episode 3×02: Beautifully Broken

    • When Sam and his newly found brother Tommy Mickens are first seen outside with the ’58 Plymouth Fury, we see Tommy’s red and white tool box is fully open. The box is seen to be of the type that has two flip lid internal covers, then two fold and push close cascading sides, with two final flip close outer side covers. When Tommy throws his tools into the toolbox, he is then seen flipping his left inner side lid closed, and heard flipping the right inner side lid closed. He is then immediately seen flipping the right outside case lid closed, which would be impossible without first having cascaded the two outer side extensions back into the middle of the toolbox.
    • It’s revealed that vampires can eat regular food, so long as it is made with blood. For example: blood soup, blood ice cream and blood wine.
  • Episode 3×03: It Hurts Me Too

    • In the scene where Jason sees Tara at the bar, she’s pouring him a beer from a tap labeled as Abita Turbodog. The problem is that the beer that comes out is a light-colored beer, like a Coors or something. Abita Turbodog is a dark ale, the beer should be almost black in color.

      Also, between shots, the mug goes from half to full several times.
