True Blood > True Blood Season Finale Review: Some Deaths, Lots of Dialogue > Comments Page 8
episode was ok im tired of the short seasons i mean it just came on seems like just yesterday they should last at least 4 months
I truley like the fact that whole show wasn't bloody and people have sex everywhere ...i feel this season unlike the past seasons had a lot more depth to it...we actually get to see the characters grow over the past seasons and get us to the point we are at now..just because the season is over doesn't mean the story is ..i really didn't mind the dialouge just means that next season is going to be extremely intense and i am already counting down the days...
I'm not sure why the writer is so bent on Tara being dead. I agree that it COULD be the case, but Sookie was yelling for help...so she could still be alive in season 5. Food for thought...
I absolutely loved it, I was on the edge of my seat the whole time!
Also, I love the series! I figure they are bringing this supposedly hunky Quinn (from the books) so Sookie HAS to be single for a while at least. Newlin... didn't see that coming. I knew Russel Edgington was coming back, but I just didn't know WHEN. Andy will probably end up with a a half fairy half human kid, which kind of scares me. Someone better fix Tara (my opinion only). You know Luna is probably knocked up by now... and since she slept with both Tommy AND Sam... it'll probably be Tommy just to swirl things up. I am frustrated, but DYING for season 5. Hurry up summer and come back soon. :)
I am i such agreement w this post. This whole season seemed rushed and just sucked. Their was no build up to anything and the finale just dropped the ball, so to speak. If Ball cant bring it w the next season then I cant continue to watch one of my fave shows go down the drain. Glad Tara's dead tho. About time w that one. Mad they killes Jesus cause I loved him w Lafayette. This season was just total crap!!
Ok.....durst I am so happy to have Truebloodians to talk to that i'm smiling....but i had a tear about Tara! I found the comment about Pam setting Russell free mouthwatering.
I could have done without:
- really? The Rev is a vamp?
- I loved grams but ridiculous
- Jessica wanting to be heartless but I get it
- the open door for Alcide next season even though he is gorgeous
- really? No Terry is dark?
Hey what happened to Sam?
This finale was disappointing and boring until the last 5 minutes. I believe Tara will miraculously be revived by Bill or Eric's vampire blood. I don't see her leaving the series. Overall, the entire season was mediocre and strayed too far from the books. I think that's why the show I'd suffering and nothing is really falling into place.
You are spot on. I scoffed and laughed more through this episode than experience any real drama or depth. The Sookie/Eric/Bill story line is played and that's sad considering they're the most interesting on the show. I've lost so much affinity for those characters b/c of the cheese-fest they've been subjected to this season. I'm just grateful they didn't try to sell us on a threesome for a finale.
Tara's death was mildly shocking but immediately after I just felt relieved that they're seemingly deciding to trim out some of the excess story lines for next season.
I do have to say that if anyone got anything right in this episode, it was Nelson Ellis with his portrayal of Marnie. He really showed his talent in this episode.
I was really happy with the finale. They wrapped up the Marnie thing (but I hope Jesus can come back somehow since Lafayette is a medium); loved the irony of the Reverend becoming a vamp; I'm sure and Bill and Eric heard Sookie's scream for help and can save Tara somehow; I like that Bill and Eric are teamed up and wouldn't it be great if Sookie can be in a relationship with both of them at the same time (that would be something really different - and would really put a strain on everything with the vampire possessiveness thing - them both feeding from her was great!) Who was the black wolf that came after Sam? This was the best season ever since the first season. I hated the Maenard (sp?) thing that went on forever and ever. This season made up for that. Lots of yummy cliffhangers. Wonder with Russell Edgington has up his sleeve?
well i enjoyed the season and i have read the book. If i wanted to watch the book in a movie type setting then what was the point of reading the books. I love TB, I have enjoyed every episode. some ppl will love the show some will hate it because it doesn't copy the book...so it is a never ending battle regardless. The finale was great too me no complaints, same as the whole season, but i guess i'm not as pick as some. so that is just my two cents take it or leave it doesn't matter to me either way, i'm looking forward to season 5 and i can guarantee, there will still be people complaining about that season as well.
You can only assume pam curse was lifted in the woods when marney and bill had their stand off. She casted a spell that sookie heard...it released eric from his spell so pam must have been released too.
I just want to make a comment about comparing the show to the books.
the First 3 seasons weren't exactly like the books either, but they worked.
I think they tried to put too much into this season that just didn't really work.
I know people have probably been saying or at least thinking it, but why did it have to stray so far from the book? This season has been what I have been waiting for since the first season and the whole thing overall was a disappointment. I understand that there are people who watch the show and havent read the books, but you'd think that there are things in the book that really didnt need to be changed to make the story line on the show cohesive. Sure, there were some high points, like Jason and Jessica, but the witches were such a joke and the whole Bill/Sookie/Eric triangle was just dumb. Eric's lines to Sookie this whole season reeked of dime store harlequin romance novels (and not in a good way)and Bill even being in the mix ruins the whole dynamic.
I know that trueblood has been picked up for another season, but it had really lift its game if it wants any more. I'll stick to the books if next season is like this one...
I think that alot happened in this finally. Im sad to see Jesus die and now that Tara is gone whats to come of Lafayette? Im also happy Nan is gone... She kinda irritated me but now that Russell is back this should be interesting, but seriously... Newlin, a vamp... WTH??
Im hoping for a much better season next summer... I need my Eric and Alcide fix! :)
I wish everyone would stop comparing the show to the book..it will only upset you. The show has taken on a life of its own w certain aspects of the book used as points of reference. Hands down tb is one of the best shows out there and i tune in every sun even when some shows fail to deliver in my eyes..i dont want this tb ride to ever end.
I think yall are haters or are just now fans...they always and are very great at leaving cliff hangers..im saying that is what True Blood is known for...they did loose me with all the talking but EVERY Season Finale does that up until the end but overall The Best Season And Best Episode...Tara, Tara, Tara i hope she is in a coma or Bill or Eric comes to save her cause she cannot die
Lafayette has Jesus's powers so he will rescue Tara..... She isn't dead! Hopefully next season Sookie will meet Quinn so she has to be single .... Also I like the differences between the series and the books! Another great season!
was kinda of a let down!!!!!...exp for a season finale!!!!!
Hey critics, I'm getting a little crispy with your negative comments about the show. There was a lot of talk, yes, and I really don't understand how Sookie could break up with Eric,but I thought it left enough 'loose ends' for me to want to see what happens next season. I am sure there will be some fairy action along with Russel showing up. I also think that Terry's friend is going to be involved somehow. Looking forword to next season.
I understand they have to change some things from the books, but if your gonna change things at least make good changes. I was very disappointed with this season.
I'll admit that I started the season off thinking ok, I can see some good things happening... but all the new story lines seemed like they were just created and dropped.
What happened with the Were-panthers. Is Jason really not turned? That's kind of a big deal in the book.
They made Sam's brother a skin walker, but now he's dead. Why even bring him into the show?
Jesus was such a great character, now he's dead too.
I'm OK with Tara being dead.
Why are we bringing back Steve Newlin... or Rene for that matter.
Did anyone break Pam's curse, were we just supposed to forget about that?
The Sookie, Bill, and Eric triangle is getting way to cheesy.
And what's going on with the Fairies! Seriously? Not at all like the books, an not at all good.
I can go on... but I don't want to beat a
WARNING !!!!! SPOILER-ALERT !!!!!
Okay... I have come to terms with the fact that the series is straying so far from the books that even a die-hard fan like myself can't make heads or tails of the plotlines. I have seen EVERY episode of the four seasons of True Blood (as well as all the little mini videos on the different types of people in the storyline On Demand). I have read and own all ELEVEN of the Sookie Stackhouse books.
I am frustrated with this episode. In the books Lafayette was found in a dumpster at Merlotte's DEAD... AGES ago... so I thought for SURE this was to be the night of his demise. NOPE ! Instead they kill off TARA who lives through all ELEVEN books, marries some sweet, but dumb jock and gets pregnant with twins. So color me surprised when I see a chunk of her head get blown off tonight ! I am glad to see Marnie go, but the way it was resolved was truly on the lame side. EXCEPT for Gran making an appearance and basically evicting that witch from La
I have to say this because I read the comments and the review...This IS HBO what did you expect? Have you never watched oz, Wired, Deadwood? The season went the way I expected it to- the finally too for that matter. Spoiler to anyone who hasn't read the books... Eric is supposed to find and introduce Sookie to her great grandfather who is the Fairy King (remember fairyland good fairies bad fairies..He's the leader of the "good" rebel fairies. This power she has was referred to as her light which in the books is a life giving force,could it help save Tara. The only thing disappointing and grand was the continuing Tommy/sam story line-I for one am happy he is dead. Also I think it is good to note here that if you read the books you will be AMAZED at the HUGE difference in story line. PS Happy to see Pam so open with her jealousy.
I loved it and can't wait to see more Jason and Jessica russel and of course now without sookie bothering them bill and Eric can finally get there own spinoff
Matt, I was thankful that they concluded the Marnie situation in this show and didn't drag it out over two seasons like they did with Mary Ann. Now THAT was tediuos. Season two was my least favorite season because Mary Ann was a terrible character that they pushed and pushed down our throats to the point where we all wanted to kill her ourselves. There were several parts of the finale that had me screaming or had my jaw on the floor. Already knew Sookie would spurn both her loves but it was still an intense and heart wrenching scene. I was shocked they killed Jesus and didn't see that coming. I jumped when Rene suddenly appeared. Didn't see that coming either. I'm interested to see what Terry's friend will bring with him. Tara sacrificing herself to save Sookie was probably the biggest shock. I always hated Tara, thought she was selfish and an over-actor with her constant lip quivering (ha). I'm not sure how else to give specifics to you. I thought it was a very intense, fast paced and
