True Blood > True Blood Season Finale Review: Some Deaths, Lots of Dialogue > Comments Page 6
This season had it's ups and downs. Tommy...good riddens! Jesus was a good fit for Lafayette. Sad to see him go. Tara...I don't she's dead but we'll see. I'm sure there would have been much buzz about Rutina Wesley not returning to True Blood even before Tara's head got blown off. It will be interesting to see how (or if) they try to save her after that. Russell Edgington was hilarious. So glad he'll be back. It didn't occur to me that Pam set Russ free until I saw the feedback. Looks like Eric and Pam will be enemies in season 5. I agree with everyone about the long wait from season to season. It suck ):
I actually thought this was the best season. I don't like that they killed off Tara and Jesus. But I liked this season. My rankings:
Season 4 - best
Season 3 - 2nd best
Season 1 - 3rd
Season 2 - totally sucked
Glad Taras gone she annoyed me. Bill and Eric are in for it now and poor Lala first his man then his cousin but Jesus will ben back he said its only temp. As far as then fairy thing yall do remember they closed then thing between worlds and for those of us who read then books it said theres only some places they can still pass threw some maybe that is a part they want to keep true to then books who knows but to me that was threw best show all season long then whole witch, thing sucked.
The books are so much better. The previews of this season were the best parts. The whole fairy episode could have been stellar, but it fizzled...never to be seen or heard from again until Claudine returned and Eric drained her. Talk about being in the wrong place at the wrong time! Sookie and Eric's sex scenes were so stupid. There was NO chemistry between them at all. Half closed eyes is Sookies "sexy" face....UGH! Lafayette suddenly being a medium....dumb!! Nan and Tara getting killed off....good!! Nan was a bitch and Tara was a whiney pain in the ass...oh, and Tommy....sooooo glad he's finally gone!! Other than that...this season sucked. Sookie should hook up with Alcide next season...or I don't see much of a future for True Blood. I hope Russell doesn't come back....he was a puss carrying a jar of red juice around calling it Talbot...lmao!!!
The finale had both high points and low points. Low point number one was Tara being fatally shot. Lawd, she better not be dead. Without her, the show will be stale. Next, Jesus being killed off was unexpected too. I mean, he was a hero and was a cool Brujo. Why good folk always have to die on this show.
Thumbs up moments was the return of Gran. Love the woman. Her yanking Marnie out of Lala's body, awesome. Major thumbs up to Bill and Eric teaming up against the Nan gang. Glad she got what she deserved, true death. Double thumbs up to Debbie's face being shot off! Way to go Sookie!
Rev. Newlin a vamp? Now that's a shocker! He still dresses like a nerd though. And lastly, it would be nice if both Bill and Eric would swing by Sookie's and save Tara. After all, she helped save their butts.
This season has had it's moments of greatness but far and few. He should have stook to the book because it was a actually a good book of the series. Killing Tara off is not a smart move and the show will not be the same without her.
why do characters have to 'die'?...why can't they just move away and come back later on as a changed person?
The first half was very slow,but it picked up in the end. I love this show. Let's face it there aren't many good shows left. Besides Supernatural, Walking Dead and The Killing, I just can't see the point of losing True Blood. I don't think Tara is dead either. But, if they bring her back, she needs a good story line. One that doesn't involve her character feeling sorry for herself all the time. Her character is too strong for that.
I pray For Jesus And Tara to get resurrected !!! :)
The reviewer thinks Tara's dead? Come on. It's just the cliff-hanger. Alan Ball isn't going to kill off one of his Big Six before the series concludes.
I liked the episode a lot more than the reviewer did. We saw two of the regular cast go, as well as a prominent guest star; the return of a former cast member from Season 2; and the foreshadowing of a returning cast member from last season. Storylines did develop and plant foundations for next season.
Good episode, excellent season.
What pisses me off is the fact we have to wait so long to watch the next season & they left us with a crap ending. Sookie is getting annoying to me, Tara was getting lame. I say turn Sookie into a vamp or make her powers cooler something cus her act is getting old. Bill and Eric friends wtf..ok but I agree with Pam get out of Sookies Va-jj..
I'm sooo mad that tara and jesus died... Tara was like the Drama character of the show... Jesus was a strong character and showed alot of love for lafayette
and the audience are use to them ... like why kill them out of all people
I kinda liked when bill and eric killed that news lady... thet BITCH was ANNOYING... but sometimes she could be funny...
Im just over all not satisfied... the episode was too much in the grey area
@ Matt - you sound like my English lit teachers asking for more specifics and originality (groan)....that being said, here goes...
It's television entertainment, not a work of literature, and the writers are going to try to please a wide audience, so not everyone is going to be pleased. While I agree that it was in a few ways the most disappointing season thus far, in most others it was the best yet.
I thought the Sookie/Bill/Eric story line came off hokey, they should have tried to stick closer to Charlaine Harris' story line, it was MUCH better. The whole book series is centered around Sookie to begin with, and not only was she not featured nearly as much this season, but the whole threesome thing and the corny lines she got was the biggest letdown of all. I was also disappointed that Alfre Woodard was not brought back as Lafayette's mother this season and that Jason was not turned by the werepanthers. I was looking forward to that.
The rest I have no complaint about. If I
We don't know that Tara is dead. She might not be.
also i felt for sookie when she couldnt choose between alcide,bill, or eric...lol glad i dnt have to make the choice ha!
omg i cant believe tara died..yea she can be super annoying at times but she was interesting and funny and i really felt bad for her and sooks...seriously debbie fuckin pelt go somewhere
What I liked:
Alcide told Sookie he had feelings for her. (That sexy hunk of a man can't wait for Season 5 :).
Jesus character was cool. Jesus/ Layfaette pairing was cool.
Tara got killed she was getting boring as the ever suffering character.
Layfaette and Jesus being witches.
Bill became King Eric had to submit. Funny.
Russell Edgenton returns.
What I didn't like:
The super dooper multi-angled storylines.
Andy Bealflur sex was gross. He need to go as well.
The ghost with the doll story was stupid.
Layfaette possessed was stupid.
Jessica with Jason did not work for me. I prefer her with Hoyt.
The ultra whitetrashers that kidnapped Jason and raped him can't stand them. I felt like I was watching Deliverance.
Old Eric with Sookie I can't feel the chemistry between them and never could. I think that it is the actors fault. I love Eric and he is my favorite character.
The fairy storyline is the worst. If Ball made them more like Yod
You are 100% on the money. Being how awful this episode was, I thought Ball did write it (his episodes are always terrible). This was an epic fail, the proportion of which makes me rethink even watching next season. And I loved this show.
I don't know why 10 episodes constitutes a Season on all of the HBO series. Why does it take 9 months to write 10 shows? How did the writers for MASH, ER and some of the other great TV shows manage to write great shows that ran from Sept thru June. This season of True Blood was the worst season so far. Don't think I want to wait 9 months for more of the same.
I am captivated by these books, and continue to be led astray from the greatness of the Sookie's story. I think the best part of the fourth book was that when the spell on Eric was broken, he didn't remember his time with Sookie. He struggled with this and Sookie used this to manipulate him and to get what she wanted and, to stay alive. I enjoy the extra characters and how the plot differs from the books, however, some things are crucial. There was always something in the books that kept me completely engulfed in them. I read the books and can thing of nothing else until it's done. I truly believe this is what is misusing from the series. I agree with the "teasing". Nothing ever is resolved. I don't understand the Jason/ were panther thing. Is it over? I am focused as to why it was even included into the storyline if it was never going to have a resolution. Then, to start season with "fairy land" and then nothing ever happens with that. ???? I love a good cliffhanger, but the series i
ok please tell me some one is dreaming i mean really people i love true blood my friends and family make a date on sundays just to see it and u are gonna screw it up like this stop now u are making a mess of things
I have read the books and I kinda like that each series takes pretty much only one theme from the book and shifts it into the corresponding season (with much else all sorts of different!)
- Was a talkative finale. Sook shoulda 'least sexed up both vampires in separate but still passionate, loving ways (to further complicate her feelings!)Even though by book 10, she's still with Eric, she'll end up with Bill in the series. (However, the whole Pam breaking down about Eric being overwhelmed by sookie may mean that they play out the Eric/Sookie love)
- I think season 5 will have Sookie fall for Alcide (for a short time at least). He will be mad about Debbie, but he will understand
- Maybe Jason will still turn into were-panther? He's not blood, so in books he's still bi-ped (half man/half beast) - otherwise that storyline shut down too quickly
- Unless we find that the actress that plays Tara did not renew her contract, I'm sure she will be back. I am ass
I thought the show was good. All shows have meaningless dialogue at some point. It can't be all blood and gore. That would get boring too. I thought tonight's show was good. I'm excited to see Russell come back and indifferent about Tara. Her character has annoyed me since day 1 but I was more hoping she would go back to New Orleans and only appear as a guest from time to time. I'm not sure how I feel about her death. Maybe it was dream. I'm sure there's a twist to her murder.
I thought the finale was great.
At first I wasn't really liking the Marnie deal. I found myself surprised at how quickly that was wrapped up in this episode and thinking WTF? what about the rest of the show?
I was surprised that Sookie blew off both Bill and Eric. Does this mean the were-tiger will show up next season? Quinn I think was his name. Then there is Alcide. Whew! what's a woman to do ?!?!? LOL
Steve Newlin back as a vamp?!?! WTF? No doubt Jessica will be back to fend him off Jayson.
were-panther after Sam?????? wonder where that one is going......
Terry has a dark side? Here we go with the "too many side storylines"
I'm disappointed that the fairy story didn't develop more this season. I'm figuring it will next season. I'm figuring Andy is going to play into the fairy storyline somehow next season.
No doubt Pam was the one to release Russell. No doubt Bill and Eric will go through hell again next season.
I don't believe Tara is dead. I think Bill an
One more thing... I know Michael Raymond-James apperance was random but who doesnt love to see him after Terriers? Honestly! I'm still pissed off that show was cancelled..
