In this weeks preview, it looks like Eric is going to feed on Sookie against her will. Does that mean Bill and Warlow are going to team up to save her? And does that portend that the major death this season is Eric? I know they have been steering us to believe that it's going to be Jessica due to her guilt over the Fae girls, but will her budding relationship with James change her mind, and offer her a chance at redemption? Warlow has been defanged for the moment. I so don't like him Sookie whipped.When do we get to see what the dark side of him looks like? He may be 6,000 years old but we know how scary Eric can get when he's hell bent on vengeance.

I agree with R7, this thing is unwatchable.
I tried. I watched the first several episodes, maybe even the entire first season. I've blocked it out, for obvious reasons. I tuned in again when Chris Meloni showed up. Even with his fine ass on offer, I lost the will to watch. It's just an awful program.

I know, r11. Her appearance this season often takes me out of the story. I just keep thinking how skinny, tired and pallid she looks. She looked a little better in the last two episodes, but I think that's the faery lighting. The sex scene didn't work for me because I found her body almost emaciated. I hate saying these things out loud because I feel kind of shallow for just focusing on the way she looks, but the marked difference in her appearance is disturbing to me. Her acting is also off. Like she's phoning it in. I can't say I'm loving a humorless, foul mouthed, hard faced and almost detached from everything going on around her, Sookie. I am also not buying this epic romance between her and Warlow because she lacks real passion and seems so lifeless. I don't blame Kazinsky. I think he does his best to sell this romance but Sookie is hard to love! I wish I could see more of the Sookie we were introduced to in season one. This Sookie looks like she's suffering from post partum depression. Mean thing to say, I know, but Paquin is an actress. And I think we are not seeing much in the way of acting from her. Okay, flame away folks,

Well, I think Deborah Ann Wohl, Anna Camp, Kristen Bauer and the new baby Vamp. Amelia Rose Blaire are doing stellar work this season. Deborah is the real stand out. She can play anything and make it believable. Like all the seasons of the show, some episodes are stronger than others, but this season has been consistently good. Great even. I don't get the concept of hate watching. I don't waste my time on anything I find boring. No matter how bored I might be. Newsflash! True Blood isn't Chekov. But it sure is fun.

Too many story lines this season. The wolfpack/Sam storyline is the biggest waste of time and Lafayette is basically a background player now. I remember when True Blood first started, I couldn't wait for Sunday night. Now, I'll catch it on demand whenever I get around to it.

I don't like how Lafayette went from playing one of the sexiest motherfuckers on the show to playing Miss Cleo. It's depressing to re-watch season one and see what the writers have done to LaLa. I still love him but he has become more of a stereotype as time goes by. They made a mistake in killing off Jesus. It's like Lafayette went into a depressive spiral and never recovered. He drinks alone, alot. He has lost a lot of his sass. Yeah, they throw him some great one liners but nothing compares to the character who humped his own couch after getting a taste of Eric's blood. And he doesn't seem interested in sex at all. A blunt and a glue gun is a poor substitute for a good fuck.

Deborah Ann Woll is quite a good actress. She had a little scene in "Ruby Sparks" which I thought was the best scene in the film.
Rwan Kwantan has become a good actor too. I used to think of him has just a body but I now think he is rather funny BUT

Misspelled Deborah Ann Woll's name. Damn. She's so good I should remember her name! Ryan Kwanten has also been a stand out this season. The best he's been since season two with his fine (and totally unexpected!) performance in the Fellowship of the Sun storyline. He doesn't get nearly enough credit because he makes doing the comic bits easy, but it is always more difficult to play broad comedy than pathos. Skarsgaard is also doing some great work, with a couple of misses, mostly due to the writing and direction. Not sure Eric's overly emotional outburst over Nora's death really worked. Crying over his sister's horrible death is understandable but we needed to see his anger and resolve to exact revenge sooner. Nothing is scarier than Eric when he decides to get even. His anger looks misdirected towards Sookie. Que up the dark side of Warlow. I think season one was the best season ever, but this is running a close second.

I re-watched the preview for this weeks show and I think I often imagine what I want to see as opposed to what is actually going to happen. It looks like it is Adilyn Braylin Charlaine Dannica who is in danger of being fed on. By Andy. Or his doppleganger. Wearing a prison suit! Man, I'm weird. I am sort of relieved that Eric isn't going to transfer his loathing for Bill onto Sookie. Maybe. Still hoping for Warlow to kick some Billith Ass. I need to see some Vamps Gone Wild. Anything to erase the memory of Eric crying like a little girl. His high pitched wailing scared my dog.

Everyone on here seems to have an opinion of likes and dislikes that contradict each other.
The show is too bloated with story lines.
The show is attempting to appeal to everyone because they have their favorites...blah blah blah.
The main story is about Sookie, and the rest can go to hell. Time to slim down.
I don't like alicide, jason, sam, or andy's storylines. They need to fly off to Alaska, or get eaten, one of the two. I don't care, and I don't want to waste any more story development on these people. Alicide, and Jason were potential love interests on the show, of course the writers didn't know how to include a storyline about their love affair with Sookie, so they are pointless now. Andy was a side character, and didn't need a whole plot device. Jason was skin, and it is getting old. Show dick, or leave the show.

The show may revolve around Sookie Stackhouse but in this current incarnation, she is the least interesting character on the show. She's like a character straight out of a Neil Gaiman story (see Coraline) but not nearly as compelling or likable. This Sookie would be right at home in a Tim Burton animated short. A Corpse Bride/Nightmare before the Vampire Apocalypse mashup. She is ruining the whole Warlow/Sookie romance with her ghost like visage and bitchy, preachy, women's lib post coital banter and skinny, not sexy at all, post baby body. So, there!

|by Anonymous||reply 46||07/31/2013|
I haven't read them all but Sookie pretty much is the same character through out the books. The character we first meet in season one.The problem this season was the choice to make Sookie's fictional life mirror Anna Paquin's real life since becoming a mother. Not something I pulled out of my ass, but a point the new show runner, Buckner, spoke about in an interview. The thing is, we watch the show because it is an escapist fantasy, not because it mirrors real life. The choice they have made to make her more "grown up" is not served by having her be rather detached and dour. Or foul mouthed. I loved Sookie because she was full of life, open hearted and brave and open to new experiences and empathetic to those, like her, who were outsiders. I don't see any of that girl now. It's the elephant in the room for me when I watch the show.

Sookie is NOT the same throughout the books. She changes quite a bit. She becomes as ruthless as the vampires, kills quite a number of supernaturals, mostly in self-defense, but she eventually plans an ambush and assassination of some enemies of hers and Eric's almost single-handedly. She doesn't do all the killing herself, of course.
Even though she becomes ruthless, she isn't what you would call evil. She mostly just does what has to be done.

Question for those who have read the books, does the change in Sookie's personality this season mirror how she changes in the books? I don't mind her fighting back and protecting those she loves. I wouldn't expect anything less from her but if she's going to become as ruthless and cold blooded as a Vamp, she might as well become one for real.

I beg to differ, r58. Angela Robinson and Alexander Woo are certainly talented and have written some of my favorite episodes over the past six seasons. The Vamp Camp and Warlow/Sookie romance story lines are great but the show runner and the writers dropped the ball where the Shifters and Weres are concerned. It would have been better to include Sam and Alcide in the Vamp Camp storyline by having Burrell and his crew know that there are other supes out there, but are choosing to keep it quiet, and having them hunted by a rogue group of Shifters who collaborate with the group who's name I can't ever remember. Alcide and Sam teamed up to save their kind would have been a more believable story line than having Alcide turn on his friend over Emma. Alcide is much more interesting as a good guy. And when he and the pack went all Wolfinator, it would have made more sense. If they really needed Sam to have a girlfriend then she must be another shifter. Having Nicole and her friends also be shifters on the run would have been more interesting than having them be naive, do gooder humans who know nothing.

Read my post at r44. Not a frau. The potential for that romance was great. Kazinsky certainly tired to sell it. The problem is Paquin. She is like one of the Walking Dead this season. Totally lifeless. And I don't think the writers are all to blame. It's the choices she's making as an actress. She can't sell the sex scenes because she isn't sexy. I think Warlow was more interesting as Ben. And as for the potential to make him a villain, obviously that is not where the writers were taking the character. With only two episodes left I guess we will see the dark side of Warlow, and we may see the "villain" you were hoping to see, but that is only so they can kill him off. Have to keep Sookie for Bill, after all. That is the bone they are throwing to the "fraus". And even if I am a frau, what has that go to do with True Blood? That response is so tired.

The fairies could have been a great counterpoint to some of the more evil supernaturals. But let's face it, this show is too frau friendly. So we get a little Twilight, a lot of Queen of the Damned (the book in the series that the fraus loved), and some 50 Shades of Gray.
I'm just always surprised at how homophobic these shows end up being. They titillate with the tiniest bit of 'homoerotic' stuff, but never really go THERE. All the truly gay characters are horrible, evil villains except for the once great Lafayette, who's been turned into Miss Cleo.

R83, I completely agree that they should've shown more of Warlow; Rob Kazinsky is insanely sexy. I hope he's back for season 7!
I loved the interaction between Jason and Eric ("Have I ever healed you before?"). Jason is really getting the hot guys lately. I hope Eric comes back too. Pam's (undead) heart was totally broken. :-(
I can't stand the Sarah character; I wish Jason would've finished her off. Sookie would've pulled the trigger and wouldn't have batted an eyelash. On the other hand, I'm really bummed they killed off Steve Newlin. He was the only gay vamp left, and it was sweet the way he carried a torch for Jason.
The whole funeral thing was just too long. Unless there's a really good explanation in the finale for dragging out Terry's death over 3 episodes, then it was a waste of film.
Overall, the show is still my #1 must-see on Sundays. I don't understand those who bitch about not liking it, yet they continue to watch it each week AND post ad nauseam about how much they hate it. That is really some special type of retarded.

All those flashbacks such felt like filler. I thought there was too much gore this week. I don't expect much in the finale....

Many times when shows kill off a regular character they will give it a lot of air time in order not to offend any fans of that character and to honor the actor playing that character. It's TV protocol.

I agree with most of you--the Terry funeral was wayyyyyyy to long and overblown for a minor character--although the song big John sang was beautiful.
Eric ripping that evil scientist's dick off was epic! Almost as cool as when he ripped that guys heart out and drank it like a juice box in the "Marnie" season. I love Eric--I was sooooo jealous when he was fucking Talbot.

Love your take on the last episode, r89, and our shared appreciation for the physical attibutes of Rob Kazinsky. Can't speak to his skills as an actor because he's had maybe three lines in each of the last three episodes but I still like looking at his stupid face. Its hard to imagine that anyone would be criticized for loving the hot men on this show. Hey, I'm shallow and I own it:) Skarsgard has never been sexier or looked more handsome. I'm so glad they gave him an awesome story line this season. And I am really looking forward to some Jason/Eric wet dream action next week. I am VERY disappointed that Bill is still with us. And bow down to the comic genius of Michael McMillian, bitches. The "I love you, Jason Stackhouse!" line was his idea. You were a lilly livered, spineless, rat bastard, Steve Newlin, but you were one of us:) Thank Godric r84 isn't.

I don't get all the hate regarding the funeral. I thought it was well done and very touching. Terry was one of those characters that was liked by many, if not all, and the funeral represented that very well. Plus, the old lady was hilarious. Let's not forget that the town of Bon Temps is a big part of this show and Terry was one of its most valued citizens.

I really liked the flashback where Terry falls for Arlene at first sight. He looked so young and was so sweet. Lowe really is a good actor. I also don't understand why some people on other sites can't remember Big John and don't understand why he was showcased to sing at the funeral. Big John has been on the show since season one. WTF? How can you be a real fan of the show and not know that? I will miss Steve Newlin too but it was almost written in stone that Eric was not going to let him continue to walk the earth. Particularly as a Vamp who can walk in daylight. Steve would have used that as a way to get back in the good graces of the human Christians. "I have risen like a Phoenix from the smoke and ash of Satan's Hell Fire to walk in God's light once again. Praise me for I am the true Vampire Jesus!"

The latest episode was very curious indeed. It seems like the new show-runner agreed that the series was getting too much into cartoon action territory where the whole season seems to take place in one night with characters rushing from one perilous situation to the next, but then wasn't creative enough to come up with anything more than half the episode being a funeral for a minor character (albeit well-liked).

In spite of having seen every single episode, I don't remember him. I really don't. He obviously didn't make much of an impression, or hasn't been seen since season one.

Big John is part of the Merlotte family and is the prep cook. He's never had a "story line" and is only in a handful of episodes. He serves as a sort of Halleleujah chorus when Lafayette says something particularly sassy and wants affirmation that he's right. I'm an Artist so I tend to pay attention to the background in a scene. My favorite scenes always seem to take place in Merlotte's and I like seeing what the art and set directors have done to create such a unique and fun setting for the bar. Big John is more set dressing than character but I say that with affection. Plus, it's Louisiana. Have to have music at a funeral and the song and the way he sang it just worked for me. Hope that clears it up.

You'd think that a virulent homophobe was writing this show. And I couldn't stand the torture porn scenes in the camp.

The Warlow storyline didn't go much of anywhere. The actor was hot, but as this season's Big bad, he was pretty easy to destroy.
I like that not only have they brought the show back to its Bon Temps roots but that the way they've left it it will pretty much have to stay in Bon Temps next season. We'll get more of this interesting idea about symbiotic human/vampire pairings in the wake of the end of Tru-Blood, plus we'll have to have more about Sam as mayor, Sookie and Alcide's relationship (thank god he cut his hair! and we seem to be done now with these boring stories about his pack), and Tara's new relationship with Lettie-Mae.

The Warlow storyline could have had a lot of potential but the writers screwed it up and then they kill off the two hottest guys on the show.
They're keeping the Eric--- (is he really dead?)--carrot dangling do they won't piss off the Eric fans but Skarsgard should just leave this wreck of a show.
I would have loved to see Warlow be in season 7 and wished they'd have thrown Warlow back into the realm instead of a final demise. For a 6000 year old vampire, Jason staking him was such a cheap ending.
Anyone know if they offered him another season and it was his choice to leave? Or was Warlow written for only one season. That's a shame cause I'd like to see more of Kazinsky's cute face and fine bod.

It often seems like the people who watch True Blood are smarter than the people who put on True Blood. Fuck you True Blood for having the gall to think that we don't see right through you. There must have plenty of drama behind the departure of Hudis. The Sookie/Warlow story looks like it was a casualty of that drama. No way did they build up this story as an epic love affair and then dispatch Grandpa Niall to Supe Purgatory for six episodes and keep Warlow tied up to a tombstone for three. Only to have him suffer from Disassociative Personality Disorder and have him be a bore and a beater! It's no secret that the fans were tired of Bill and wouldn't have cared if he died this season. I wonder if having created a romantic interest for Sookie who might have proved popular was somehow threatening to the "stars". It seems like they went out of their way to make him as boring as possible to stem fan interest and then made him as mean and vile as possible to justify killing him off. Something just isn't right. And where is there any evidence of this new and independent Sookie now? Alcide is bossing her around just like Warlow wanted to do. Buckner is delusional if he thinks th fans are happy with the way this season ended. And I have to agree with my old friend The Fallen Angel that the hype over showing Skarsgard's prick peurile and insulting to the people that they believe makes up their core audience.

POSSIBLE SPOILER FOR NEXT YEAR: Don't read if you don't want to know! Does Buckner know the first thing about being a showrunner? First he said that Eric was definetly dead. He burned. An hour ago he gave an interview and he said that Eric is not dead. Skargard has signed on as a regular cast member for next season. "I wouldn't take Alexander Skarsgard from your living rooms". He also hinted that it is Pam who finds Eric because she flew off to find him. Oh, and the vampires who are swarming and headed towards Merlottes, fuck Arlene, are NOT zombies. The finale was only two days ago and he's already ruining the element of surprise for season seven? He must be taking tremendous heat for supposedly killing off the most popular character on the show. Suckie, who? If you are going to end the season with a shocking cliffhanger then have the balls to stand by it. Let the fans hate. It will only generate more buzz for next year. But they don't even have the balls to do that. By the time the show airs again next year we will know so much about it that we won't have to watch it at all. Here's the one thing he absolutely needs to do. Tell Anna Paquin to pack on about ten pounds before reporting to set next year. And get her a years supply of 5 Hour Energy. She looked like shit. And her energy level was on a par with her acting. A big fat zero. And please tell her to lose that stupid Adam Sandler voice she uses for no apparent reason. So lame.

Read the post again, r180. Buckner gave an interview and said that Eric was DEAD. He BURNED. Then he backtracked and gave an interviews with two different entertainment websites and told the fans he wasn't gone. He also gave away other spoilers for next season. Yeah, fuckwad, I know what a cliffhanger is. And if you run a show and want the cliffhanger to be effective, then you have to shut the fuck up and let the chips fall. Were they really that surprised that fans were going to be upset that Eric might be gone? Wasn't that the point? He needs to take a page from Alan Ball's book and just keep quiet about the new season. He also thinks that we are clamoring for a Sookie/Alcide/Bill triangle. He's fucking delusional.
