UPDATE: In True Blood Season 6, Episode 4: "At Last," we finally found out who Warlow is — none other than Sookie's new crush, Ben Flynn. This was first hinted at the beginning of the episode when we found out that he was a faerie-vampire hybrid (as we suspected) and saved Jason's life. Everything unfolded throughout the hour, and ultimately, he banished their faerie grandfather, Niall Brigant, and started trying to get it on with Sookie. She, however, did not have it, and we'll have to wait and see what happens with him next week to discover his other powers and his real agenda.
ORIGINAL STORY: Looks like Alan Ball is taking some major creative license when it comes to Sookie's parents and their mysterious hillbilly deaths.
In The Southern Vampire Mysteries by Charlaine Harris, Sookie finds out her mom and pops (aka meemaw and peepaw) were killed by Neave and Lochlan, two "water faeries" who want to eradicate all human/faerie hybrids. True Blood has remixed this entire plotline, and it appears that Sookie's parents were killed by a pervy vampire named Warlow! (Best name ever, by the way.)
Here's what we know:
1. Sookie's faerie godmother called Warlow by name, implying that she knew him personally.
2. Sookie shouldn't have been able to access Warlow's thoughts due to the fact that he's a vampire … which could mean he's not a vampire after all! Is he an evil vamp/faerie mutant?
3. Warlow has special abilities. Sure, most vamps know how to fly — but this toothsome fella can morph into a perverted cloud. It's OK, Warlow. Sookie's used to people peeping on her in the shower.
4. According to an ancient faerie scroll Jason found in Episode 10, the next fae born was promised to Warlow by the Stackhouse ancestors! And guess who that is? Sookie!
Warlow is definitely an international man of mystery, but we have a feeling there's more to him than meets the eye. What do you think about Warlow, Truebies? Weigh in below!
