True Blood - Ep. #501 - Jason/Steve Scene
INT. JASONíS HOUSE - NIGHT
A naked JASON stands OPPOSITE a FANGS-OUT STEVE NEWLIN in
the doorway, knowing better than to look him in the eye.
Jason, I swear it to you and I
swear it to God: I am not here to
hurt you. All I want is to talk.
See, you say that, but I seen your
fangs. And I have been Ďround the
block enough times to know that
fangs are basically like twin hardons.
Hard-ons for trouble, or for
feediní on somebody. But never just
for talkiní. Not ever.
BLOOD TEARS start forming in the corners of Steveís eyes.
Please...? Iím scared. And Iíve got
no one else to turn to.
What about your followers? You got
thousands of Ďem out there lookiní
And what do you think will happen
when they find out about this?
These are people I trained to kill
folks like me.
ON JASON, softening a little, as he realizes Steveís in
quite the pickle.
ON STEVE, his FANGS RETRACT. He seems pleasantly surprised
by this fact.
Ah! There went the fangs! Look...
No way -- I ainít lookiní at you.
Because youíll fuckiní glamour me!
Jason, a vampire has to be taught
how to glamour. And nobody taught
Bullshit. What about your, um...
(a disdainful laugh)
My being turned was a punishment.
Iím not saying I didnít deserve it,
but... I woke up in a hole in the
ground with a strange woman who
wouldnít tell me anything. Didnít
even give me her name. She just...
ON JASON, Steveís story touching a soft spot in his
into Steveís eyes)
She abandoned you?
ON STEVE, heís got Jason. GLAMOUR SCORE kicks in.
(under his influence)
Invite me in, Jason.
ĎCourse. Come on in, Reverend...
OFF STEVE, entering...
True Blood - Ep. #501 Jason/Steve Scene II
INT. JASONíS HOUSE - NIGHT
Jason sits under a blanket on his barcalounger, still
under Steveís influence. Steve applies the last piece of
ELECTRICAL TAPE to Jasonís mouth.
I want you to hear what Iím about
to say with a clear and open mind,
so in a minute, Iím going to
release you from my influence. When
I do, all youíre going to remember
is that you invited me in, and you
asked me to put this tape over your
Jason nods ďokayĒ. Steve takes a seat on the couch. Only
now does he release Jason from his influence.
Hello, Jason. Thank you so much for
inviting me into your home.
Yrrrr wlcm, Rvrrnd Ewnln.
Thereís something Iíve been
gathering up the courage to tell
you ever since the day I found out
you were sleeping with my wife. You
(deep breath, here
I didnít care so much that you
slept with Sarah. What hurt was
that she got to sleep with you...
ON JASON, his eyes saying what his mouth canít: ďWhere
exactly are you goiní with this, Reverend Newlin?Ē
But even before that -- the whole
time you were at camp -- all these
feelings were... building up inside
me. And I couldnít admit it, not
even to myself. I think thatís why
I started acting the way I did, all
murderous and whatnot.
But now that Iíve been blessed with
immortality, Iíve finally got the
strength to say it:
I am a gay Vampire-American, and I
love you, Jason Stackhouse. And now
Iím going to let you speak...
Steve gently REMOVES THE TAPE from Jasonís mouth.
Sorry if this hurts...
Well, I asked for it, so...
First off... Iím flattered. ĎCause
that was without a doubt the nicest
ďI love youĒ Iíve ever gotten from
anybody, male, female, or
otherwise. Second: I forgive you,
for actiní all ďmurderous and
whatnotĒ. But I gotta be honest
with you, Reverend --
(pointing to himself)
-- this dog donít bark that way.
ON STEVE, crushed, angry, and embarrassed, all at once.
Look, Iím sorr--
Unable to control himself, Steve DROPS FANGS once again.
DO NOT! PITY ME!
I ainít pityiní you!
It ainít the way love works! You
canít make yourself love somebod--
But Steve has already VAMP SPED across the room, and is
holding him in a half-Nelson, one of his hands covering
Jasonís mouth. Jasonís eyes register a 10 on the-freaked-the-
fuck-out-register, as Steve whispers into his ear:
My dead heart beats for you. The
least you could do is try.
Acting on impulse alone, Steve SLIDES THE TIPS OF HIS
FANGS ALONG JASONíS NECK, savoring him, collecting
memories and smells of this moment. Jason struggles, but
to no avail -- Steveís too strong.
