Now that True Blood’s Vampire Authority is running rampant and killing humans, it’s every man — and vampire! — for themselves. Naturally, consummate survivor Steve Newlin (Michael McMillian) has successfully planted himself where he’ll be most useful: Alongside Russell Edgington (Denis O’Hare), Salome (Valentina Cervi) and Nora (Lucy Griffiths) in a place of power.

TVGuide.com turned to McMillian to get the scoop, including the future for Steve and his human crush Jason (Ryan Kwanten), and Bill (Stephen Moyer) and Eric’s (Alexander Skarsgard) involvement with the Authority moving forward.
