Who is Alcide’s Daddy?

True Blood fans can finally see the man who created the genetically blessed werewolf, Alcide, this season when he makes an appearance in the 9th episode titled, Everybody Wants to Rule the World. Terminator 2 bad guy, Robert Patrick, will play the dude responsible for making Alcide the man, er–wolf he is today.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news of Patrick’s guest appearance on the hit HBO series explaining that he will play Jackson Herveaux in a 1980s flashback of Alcide’s teenage years. During that time, Jackson was somewhat of a heroic figure but now he has given up on life.

Jackson is also the reason Alcide agreed to help Sookie search for Bill, which we will find out more about in the upcoming episode airing August 5th.
