In a recent interview with Rick Worthy, he mention some tidbits of information about season 8 in response to some of my questions. I have posted those questions and replies below.
Is the Alpha vampire ever going to get a name?
I know his name….his real true name. It’s a very, very long name and he comes from royal ancestry. So the way he eats and talks…everything about him is regal. And I hope there’s a chance for his name to come out. It will have to be totally worked out with the writers and producers. That is building an independent character with last and final secrets. They have a lot of secrets, and that’s probably one of the biggest ones because it’s the key to his origin….where he comes from.
So if the character continues on the series, how would you expect him to evolve? Do you have any direction specifically that you’d like to see him go in?
Yeah, I think there’s been a couple of times when he said he has unfinished business with the Winchesters.Â And there’s a conflict that needs to happen between him and the two brothers, but I think there’s also a bigger conflict that needs to happen, as well. There is a war coming, I believe, and hopefully he’s going to be part of it. Whose side he is going to be on, I think, is crucial to the survival of his character. So it may be that he makes some kind of an alliance with the Winchesters. But it’s the kind of an alliance that has a lot of gray in between. You know he can’t quite trust them, but you know they need him. So that’s why when I read the script [for] “There Will be Blood,” I was like, “okay this is going to go down.” This script is really written well because he reluctantly gives up his blood to help them out. He doesn’t just give it to them. There has to be a bit of a showdown first, and then he decides that, “okay, I’ll help rescue you.” It was so well written because it takes a lot for him to give up his blood. So if and when he comes back in season eight, I would love to try to continue along those lines were he’d like to help the Winchesters but he’s not just giving up easily.Â
