Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer

As True Blood starts charging towards the Season 4 finale, executive producer Alan Ball was on hand at HBO's summer TV session to dish out a few spoilers — and when we say few, we mean very few. Here is the transcript of our rapid-fire lightning round with the very cagey Ball:

True Blood: Eric and Sookie shower! Twin faeries! And 5 other spoilers from Comic-Con

What will we see in the war between witches and vampires?
It will go places that surprise you. It's not linear.

What can you say of the Bill-Sookie-Eric triangle?
It's complicated.

Will Sookie (Anna Paquin) be able to forgive Bill (Stephen Moyer)?
I believe forgiveness is possible for everybody for everything, but I'm a Buddist, so...

Were you careful with the relationship between Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) and Sookie because of Team Bill?
I don't worry about Team Bill or Team Eric. I love [the fourth book] because I thought it was a great story, but I'm Team Sookie.

Because Jason (Ryan Kwanten) drank Jessica's (Deborah Ann Woll) blood, will his sex dreams continue?
He's had her blood and he's already a very sexual person, but he's going to be attracted to her.

True Blood's Marshall Allman: "Team Tommy is on the rise"

What is the season building up to?
The fate of vampires as a whole.

What's the big, bad villain for next season?
We are just in the beginning of Season 5, so it's too early to say, but we're basing it on the books.

Do you feel pressure to top each villain?
I don't think that way because that's only a recipe for trouble. I love my job, I enjoy doing it. I'm not going to put pressure on myself to top. I just want to tell the best story and the most fun story.

Why did the show really jump one year in the future this year?
The root of that was how we get Jason to be a cop.

Bonus non-True Blood question: Having created ABC's Oh, Grow Up and co-executive produced CBS' Cybill, would you ever consider doing another sitcom?
No, no, no. I would rather drive rusty railroad spikes into my eyes.

True Blood airs Sundays at 9/8c on HBO.
