True Blood > True Blood Season Finale Review: Some Deaths, Lots of Dialogue > Comments Page 9
I have to agree with your opinion. This season finale was crap on top of a kind of crappy season. I think the low points for me were when Alcide magically decided he loves Sookie, Terry suddenly has a dark side to worry about, and oh yeah....they killed Tara! Am I the only one who wanted something positive to happen to Tara? Why would fairies be interested in Andy?
This was a horrible review of the True Blood Season finale. You didn't even mention Jesus or Lafayette's guilt about that! Or the fact that Debbie is GONE now... which sets up stuff for Alcide and Sookie next season (which they'll have to do eventually). Maybe this reviewer was busy doing something else and not paying attention to the actual episode! There was gore! How about "We are not fucking puppies" after they kill that woman from the Authority and all of her minions. And sex between Jess and Jason... which I am excited about more of them next season. I think someone is going to save Tara... maybe she'll be a vampire... or a vamp will save her. If she's gone, I don't mind that either because I was sick of her character. I also really liked that Sookie's grandma came back when she needed her so much. And I loved that Rene showed up to warn Arlene! I love Terry but Arlene and him need a great storyline next season. The 'wicked' baby one wasn't that great. All in all, I thought it wa
I don't see how you guys gave this two stars only. WTF!?
btw pretty sure Steve was killed in book three.. it never stated it, but it was indicated, i think this is a good way to goo.. lol making him what he hated most
well Fairyland did do something though by moving ahead a year so that tons of things were able to be changed such as Jason becoming a cop and and then hoyt and Jessica having problems and bill becoming the king and so that it's not like russel got dug out of cement in a couple of days
with all due respect to a lot of fans, the show is following the basic storyline of the book, which was about witches.. but the show made it far more exciting, my biggest issue this season was the intense amount of storylines..but i understand the need for character development beyond Sookie/Eric/Bill. the entire point of ths finale was to shock you.. the season practically ended in episode 11 with Marnie being taken out.. yet she took over lafayette, not suprisingly jesus figured it out in the first 5 mins of the show. The first 20 mins technically resolved season 4's issues with the witches once and for all. Then you get a sense of calm and then last 15 mins all hell breaks loose. I understand it may have been disappointing to many but i personally found this episode amazing.. I knew russell would be back, question was when.. and now we know the most insane bloodthirsty is out and going to cause hell. i literally jumped off my couch when tara was shot.. im in shock.. but overall i th
I thought it was a good season and a great episode. I just can't believe they left it hanging like that drives me nuts. Cant wait until season 5.
@Tia: What is there to say about Newlin showing up as a vampire? It's just a random storyline, thrown in for shock value. I look for good, consistent storytelling, actual build-up and coherence to episodes and seasons. I'm not impressed or excited by something simply because it takes me by surprise. It's not difficult to write something surprising. It's difficult to write something that's surprising AND sensible within the course of the overall story.
Ok, so the finale was a little long on the talking..but i felt it did a fine job of leaving me hang till next season....you gotta have something to look forward to, and if they closed up all the story lines, what would make you come back? if theres no hook, then theres no catch! if nothing else i can't wait to see what they do with russell edgington, and if no one noticed, rev. newlin, now a vamp himself! and they were picking up more on holly, especially in the wicca shop sequences. and i fully expected debbie to come for sookie, tara just kinda got caught up, which doesn't make it so random, more senseless, seeing how debbie wanted sookie in her jealous rage, and accidentally got tara...i thought it was sweet of mrs.fortenberry to say that stuff to sam. it was good to see her be a human being to another person, instead of always such a bitch. it all kinda came together, altho, i was a lil disappointed that sookie left bill and eric...also, not talking about what happened between sher
I enjoyed the season & the variation away from the books. Eric & Bill can "feel" Sookie's emotions so they will rescue Tara even if she becomes a vamp. They certainly have many directions to pursue for next season.
Way to go Mr. Ball.....ignore the critics!!
Those of us who've read the books are used to a much higher body count than this. No one is safe in Bon Temps! What has dismayed me is the use of too many storylines, leaving some characters sidelined (much more so than Holly) and leaving some storylines unfinished or summarily dismissed. We don't expect things to be tied up in a neat package with a fancy bow, but it would be more satisfying to see SOME of them resolved, even if the resolution isn't to our liking.
Firstly, there were FOUR deaths, not two. Jesus, Tara, Nan, and Debbie. Obviously Tara is the biggest character, but all the rest had pretty significant roles on the show as well, especially Jesus who was on it for well over two seasons. How can you possibly complain that not enough happened this episode? How many shows kill off four characters in one episode!? Sure, the Marnie thing was a little rushed, but there was still more than enough blood and guts to go around. Bill and Eric burning at the stake, Eric decapitating three guards and Bill staking Nan, not to mention that epic final scene. And of course the faeries are going to be back next season, Ball has been teasing the idea of them since SEASON ONE. Obviously he isn't going to just drop the storyline now. And the sex scene between Jason and Jessica brought back the raunchy Jason that we all missed. Sure the episode wasn't ALL action, but who says it had to be? The episode did a great job at building the tension that it should
no one mentioned that it was probably Pam who dug up Russell? To help with her "sookie" problem.
I loved it and can't wait until next season!!!!
The first part that startled me was seeing Bill and Eric tied up - I thought I missed about 10 minutes of the episode somehow. Besides that, I agree that there was a lot of talking. But, I disagree that it didn't feel like a season finale. Sure, there could have been a few more answers. But, I thought there were payoffs tonight -- a dead Jesus (I liked him just fine, but it's cool they offed him). Tara getting shot, Deb getting shot, Nan getting killed (that's up to four deaths). Russel coming back (you're right... no surprise). I actually think the only chance Tara has of surviving will be if Russel shows up and figures something out. He won't need to be invited into Eric's house, and he drank Sookie's blood so I'm sure he can hear her. Flaws, yes. Worst thing ever... no way!
I agree, this was very boring finale. After last weeks episode, I was really disappointed. Hope the bring back Tara and trying to figure out who turned the preacher???
Also agree why did they drop the fairy storyline?? Was in first few min of 1st episode and then nothing until last week.
Will watch next year to see if better. Maybe at time they wrapped they still were not sure if season 5 was coming so maybe why this one sucked, pardon the pun!!!
I totally agree.
At least I'm not the only one who felt disappointed and frustrated with how this season ended!
Killing off Jesus to start a bonfire, seriously?
Time to change the writers and get this show back on track.
I kind agree that they keep dragging the stories, and open story lines to never speak of them again. But this episode was out of this world. At the end of it I was like "OH MY GOD WHAT WAS THAT?!", and I haven't felt like that in such a long time. Although I share your frustration over too much talk, not enough action, and wanting to see more of the fairies, I believe this season has been really good. If you think about it there were two season finales, sort of, last week really felt like a season finale. This week was like an "outro" episode, like opening a can of worms and letting some out, just to show us what next seasons has in store for us. I finally feel satisfied.
How would she come back as a vamp?dead,is,dead..maybe lafyette will medium her..i was truly upset when she got shot like that smh..what this article failed to capture is the shock n awe on how is the rev a vamp now..n where is russell..season five better not drag on live 4 did..i could have went on not seeing the fairy crap bc it had no real place in the storyline..n r.i.p jesus..he had the most sense on this show thus far..wish they would have.expanded on his brujo storyline.
I thought it was a great finale...I absolutely cannot wait till season 5...OMG is all I can say..
It sure would be nice if the series would follow just a LITTLE bit with the books. Tara doesn't die, the witch thing is ALL wrong, Tommy isn't even a character, Lafayette died in the first book and it goes on and on and on......
My computer posted my comment like 4 times! Ahh! Sorry...
A very boring season finale!!!! Thank God that wasn't a first episode or I wouldn't have watched anymore. I love the show and will continue to watch, I just wanted alot more action and Jesus not gone, he was a good character. Now Tara I say good bye!!! I agree with the writer of this column 110%!!!!!
I found this episode lacking that wow factor that season finales are supposed to have...
When Marnie went off with Antonia I looked up at the clock and was trying to figure out why they just wrapped up the entire seasons main storyline and everything the episode trailer showed in 10 minutes...
The rest of the episode was quite predictable in my opinion. There were several times that I happily said I've been waiting for that to happen but in hindsight that's not really what you want from a season finale. You don't want it to be so predictable that the only time you're suppriesed is when Steve Newlin shows up as a vampire...
I hope next season is better...
