R.I.P to True Blood’s Steve Newlin

Posted on the 13 August 2013 by Truebloodnetcom @truebloodnet

And so we come to the end of an era. Last night in HBO’s True Blood Season 6, Episode 9, entitled Life Matters, the (former) Reverend Steve Newlin (Michael McMillian) finally met the sun. And is it just me, or are we all going to miss the spineless little turncoat?

While Steve got to meet the sun (which was a sweet iron due to his joy of making vampires meet the sun in Season 2), it was a bitter sweet moment. Steve was the character we all loved to hate after all. Michael McMilllian, however, was just pleased that he managed to make people both sad and happy with his death:

It’s a funny moment in the script. I was checking [Twitter] last night, of course, and I was actually surprised that people thought it was as funny as it was. That made me really happy. And I also got a lot of messages saying that people were sad to see Steve go. So if you can pull off a death that is both sad and hilarious, I think you’ve done your job okay.

As for that last line muttered: “I love you Jason Stackhouse!” That was entirely McMillian’s idea after he was disappointed at there being no Steve and Jason (Ryan Kwanten) action in True Blood’s Season 6.

Considering the fact that Michael McMillian has actually been with True Blood since Season 1, Entertainment Weekly wanted to know if there was any special send-off – especially from Alexander Skarsgard:

He gave me a very personal sendoff in the gag reel, which nobody but cast and crew saw. It was somewhat inappropriate and somewhat hilarious, but beyond that I really can’t describe it too much. [Laughs] There was a little skin involved. Yes.

What we wouldn’t give to see that gag reel, hey Trubies?!

Were you sad to see Steve Newlin die in True Blood Season 6? Or were you glad he’s finally dead? Let us know by commenting below.
