Season 5 Trivia

  • Episode 02 - The language the authority vampires are speaking at the end of the episode does not correspond to any single language. Most of the chant is derived from ancient Hebraic dialects (such as Aramaic). However, certain words (e.g., "nama(n)" for name) are not semitic but Indo-European, and were probably taken
  • Episode 08 - Goof (revealing mistake): When a "naked" Alcide throws Rikki onto the bed, the "modesty pouch" covering Joe Manganiello's genitals is clearly visible.
  • Episode 03 - When Jason is picking up his clothes after he sleeps with Ms. Steeler, Jason smells his shoe. This is a reference to Ms. Steelers (Prince Charming) cat peeing in in her ex's shoes, cause the cat doesn't like to share.
  • Episode 10 - In this episode Bill uses the 'As your maker, I command you...' to get Jessica to go with his security team, but Bill released Jessica seasons ago. As such, she would not be obligated to listen his 'command'.
  • Episode 12 - Goof (continuity error): When Sookie thinks that Bill is dead, she hugs Eric by grabbing hold of his leather jacket. In the very next shot, she is instead grabbing his t-shirt.
