Three weeks into True Blood’s Season 4 and finally the HBO show gave us a little Alcide (Joe Manganiello). We found out that his crazy were-ex, Debbie (Brit Morgan), is back.
“I mean I’m a fan of the show and there’s a part of me that can kind of step back and miss my character too,” Manganiello tells The Hollywood Reporter.
“I was really overwhelmed by the amount of people that were, ‘Why aren’t you showing up? What’s going on? I miss Acide. When’s he going to be here?’ ” he continues. “Of course I had to keep my mouth shut about the big surprise to Alcide’s return to the show, which is also Debbie’s return to the show.”
His return was very brief, though. But, HBO released some preview clips for Sunday’s Episode 4 and it looks like the show is making up for not giving us enough of the werewolf.
In the previews below, Alcide gives Sookie (Anna Paquin) a hand… and a chest and some abs. Also, Marnie (Fiona Shaw) explains that giving Eric’s memory back won’t be easy for her to do. And Bill (Stephen Moyer) grills Pam about her maker’s whereabouts.
