Fortunately, her costars were more forthcoming. "There'll be some revelations about certain characters," Nelsan Ellis (Lafayette) told TV Guide Magazine, saying we'll find out why he and Jesus are so "spiritually connected." Joe Manganiello promised, "Alcide will be back before the season's up to take care of some unfinished business," and Kristin Bauer said that vampire Pam will "do anything to save her maker [Eric]."  

Meanwhile, Sam Trammell (Sam Merlotte) says "somebody in Sam's camp is in big trouble," but wouldn't specify if that someone is little brother Tommy. "This season leaves everyone with a bunch of cliffhangers, especially with my storyline. There's something very serious, very hardcore that happens."

As for next season, Alcide fans already know that Manganiello, now a series regular, will be back. "[Creator] Alan [Ball] and the writers are busy writing Season 4 right now, so I'm dying to find out what happens," he said. And Lauren Bowles (wiccan Holly) promised, "You will be seeing me a lot next season. As Alan has announced, next year is the year of the witch."

The Jesus-Lafayette may also heat up. "What they've written, there's a lot of sparks going on," says Kevin Alejandro. "Whatever happens next season should be pretty explosive."
