With True Blood season four well underway, Joe Manganiello has taken some time out to shed some light on the relationship between his character Alcide and Debbie. Joe believes that the two have reunited due to the genetics relationship between werewolves.
Manganiello explained, "I did a lot of research on wolves and things and there's a chemical wolves secrete. It's the mate for life chemical and it's in wolves and not dogs. So I thought about that, and I thought about how difficult it must be for them to separate. And also growing up as a werewolf and living hidden from society, you can't open up to normal people. You couldn't just go out on a date with a human girl and tell her who you were unless you were really sure."
Joe added, "It would probably make the dating pool a lot smaller. And as you found out in season three, the werewolves are a bit of a rough bunch. So it's probably slim pickings in the dating pool as far as werewolves go! Debbie's obviously tried to make amends for her past transgressions and done so in such a convincing manner that Alcide would give her another shot," he said. "So obviously only time will tell how good of a job she does, or how consistent of a job she does."
True Blood season three is set to be aired in the UK at the beginning of this September on Channel 4. Meanwhile, the fourth season of the hit HBO vampire show will continue to be aired on Sundays at 9pm.
