I was so hoping for a Sookie & Bill reunion of some sort...maybe next season!

Oh man.. TB has become so pre pubescent. This show has turned into wish fulfillment for 12-year old girls in the same way Entourage was for 20-something men.

The way they tie up all the loose ends so neatly makes me think of a show that found out they're being canceled, and they have a couple episodes left to try to wrap it up.

Sam is now the mayor? Sookie and Alcide are a couple? And now all of a sudden the town decides to create this macabre quasi Big Brother/Big Sister Bon Tempe thing and pair up for feeding. And I must say I was more than a little uncomfortable with the weird female Oedipus thing between Tara and her mother. They played it off as a mother suckling her child, but when the vampire feeding has always been portrayed as a sexual thing, it's impossible to suspend that thought through the scene.

And how the hell did their uncle pop out of the other dimension just in time?
Give me a break, and the viewers some credit. All in all, a show that started interesting in the first couple seasons, that slowly but surely declined.

I have always enjoyed "True Blood" but three words kept going through my head as I watched this episode. They were "jumped the shark"!

Do you remember when Eric gave Jason his blood? He said "When you dream of me, dream nice things" I think that was foreshadowing and that what we saw was a dream Jason was having. That is my theory because there is NO WAY they killed Eric Northman!

It was typical end of season true blood episode. The main story wrapped up then next season set up in the rest of the episode. It will be nice to see true blood going back to something a bit 'normal', rather than completely out there arcs.

The episode itself I really enjoyed, if anything we should have more pam, infact more pam is never a bad thing. I do doubt eric is dead I'm fairly sure he will have survived somehow but I bet we wont find out for a while.

I certainly don't trust Tara's mother, she is evil, evil, evil. That wont be a healthy relationship.

Looking forward to next year.

I don't know what the fuck you are talking about .... Did they really kill Eric? Discuss!!!

Frankly, unless they show The Other Side, I really don't think he escaped.

If they did, it might genuinely be the end of my True Blood. He is the most fascinating character, and this would be a good way out of True Blood.

Steve, I just thought she was being jealous because he poured beer for another girl?

what was the deal with the look that Violet gave Jason at the end when he had the Beer and food ????

I also have an interesting theory about Warlow. We know that there has always been an internal struggle between his vampire and Fairy sides. It is possible that when Eric drained him of most of his fairy blood the scale tipped in favor of his murderous vampire traits. Which would explain why he seemed so off after he was healed. Sookie's blood wasn't enough to fully restore his fairy blood to its initial state but instead just healed his wounds.

Thoughts?

I will say that the one gripe I had was that they didn't make the most of the Willa storyline. Her initial capture in the bedroom with Eric was supremely amazing. It was a rather old school vampire scene (handsome vamp seduces pale sweet innocent girl). We never got to see him give her the ultimate first time experience and she died a Virgin which means she'll have the same issues Jessica experiences.
