As we finally wrapped things up with the Warlow storyline, the show advanced us six months into the future to a very different Bon Temps and a world filled with Hep V.

It's time to break down the final episode of the season and be forewarned, there are MAJOR SPOILERS ahead....

For those of you who never bought into Warlow's soul mate act with Sookie, bravo: you were right. He was the scum we'd all heard about from various characters over the last season. While he was the catalyst that allowed Bill and Eric to save all those vampires from meeting the sun, he would've been the end of our main chick Sookie. Sure, I thought he'd be pissed when Sookie got cold feet, but I just did not see that backhand coming.

Well, you faery vampire psychopath, she's special enough to get rescued time and time again. And with that comes the end of the 5500-year terror known as Warlow! As far as Sookie, I think those words from Warlow stung anyway, because she ended up with a different kind of supe down the line. But we'll get to that in a moment.

With the destruction of Warlow by a simple but awesome dual effort between Jason and Grandpa Niall, all the magic fae blood that the vampires had ingested was suddenly gone with a poof. Billith had already lost his superpowers when he fed everyone and luckily most of the other vampires were indoors. But Eric, our gorgeous viking, was sunbathing nude on the top of a mountain in Sweden and went up in flames. This left us all with the huge True Blood season 6 cliffhanger question: Did they just kill Eric Northman?

My bets are that Pam will find him and swoop in at the last second. C'mon, is that really how they would send off one of the most beloved characters on the entire show? If it is, at least they gave the fans a full front shot of Alexander Skarsgard. Because let's not even lie, I'm surprised the Internet hasn't already crashed due to GIFs of that moment.

As for everything else, I love that Sam is now the mayor. I'm glad to see Arlene found a way to heal after burying Terry: by turning Merlottes in Bellefleur's. I'm happy to see Alcide ditched that hairpiece he was clearly wearing at the funeral and Sookie is finally with a guy who isn't a vampire. After a season as an addled up dickhead packmaster, the old Alcide is back. Jason has learned to be a, um, giver. Good stuff all around.

One thing I could've done without was the reunion of Lettie Mae and Tara. I will never trust that bitch. I wouldn't be surprised if she was infected with Hep V and got Tara to feed on her by pretending to be all apologetic. She is straight up crazy.

All in all, the question we will go into season 7 with is: Can Sam and Bill's idea help save the world from Hep V infected vampires? We finally got rid of the faery-vampire murderer and now we have a crew of zombie vampires on our hands. So what did you all think of the finale?
