We've heard more than a few fans refer to the fairyland in "True Blood" as coming off a bit, well, like a commercial for feminine hygiene products. But, in a new sneak peek at the first three minutes of Season 4 and as one of the writers reveals, the fairies have everyone fooled.

"Let me address one thing and it's an interesting phenomena on the show because in the age of the Internet it's very easy to find out what your audience thinks about everything," says scriptwriter Brian Bruckner according to The Vault

"People were sort of unanimously not thrilled with fairyland," he continues. "But I do want to say that this isn't actually fairyland. It's a hallucinatory dream and it's what fairies are presenting about themselves to try to get Sookie to come with them. So, think of it as a trap and the real fairy is going to be something very, very different and more sinister. I promise."

That becomes clear in the first three minutes of the Season 4 premiere available from HBO Go
