Ok I called the flash forward (as supported by nothing) also Sookie's still fairy so Eric lost interest because of what?

Either Sookie has a new man and I missed it, or she and Jason have embraced the Targaryen tradition in order to preserve their magic bloodline.

The wedding wasn't legal. The writers went out of their way to emphasize that; what then was the point? I'm not a fan of the hairstyle for the wedding. It didn't really suit Jessica and the lipstick was too heavily done. I've been to real weddings where the officiant didn't take that damn long. I kept imaging Bill croaking in the middle of the speech.

The infomercial with Eric and Pam was amusing. Eric looked like he was a bad salesman though. His attempt at a toothy smile was very funny. I guess Newlin got what she deserved? I think without all the padding in the show, I might have appreciated the good bits more. That was all of 12 minutes of story and the rest was just endless, boring, pointless filler.

The Whelk, it did all mean something. It was all meant to lead Sookie to her ultimate destiny as a mom and waitress, married to a human (after a brief period of vampire experimentation).

It's all about Sookie. Don't you just love her? Well, don't you??!!!

I give Sookie credit for not giving up her fairy and actually staking Bill. It was kind of disappointing that she didn't then go on to do much with the fairy stuff but maybe that's the point. And as much as I love Hoyt and Jessica that was a SNOOOOOOZER of a wedding.

Every moment up until Bill's death was unbearably boring although the wedding was cute. And then he was a big puddle of goo and I clapped like a giddy seal.

Eric and Pam were glorious and tbh the entire series should have just been Eric And Pam's Hairdos Across The Ages, with special guest star Godric In Pajamas.

Eric driving while bopping to techno was hilarious (although why he would ever drive is beyond me when he can just zoom places). And Pam stands in for the audience; she skipped most of Bill's book except for the parts about her.

Why they'd spend such a huge chunk of the finale on Jessica and Hoyt? And Lafayette got not a single line yet Tara's stepfather the preacher got to deliver a whole speech? WTF?

Bill asking Sookie not only to kill him but to give up her fae-bomb power was just the way I expected that dickhead to go out. It had to be all about him right to the very end. Ugh. Thank you for nothing.

So, anybody up for a spin-off dark comedy series about the globetrotting adventures of new business moguls, Eric and Pam?

It was very a very meh ending in a season of meh stories. I honestly thought they were going to have Bill become human at the end (fairy magic or fairy-boosted hep v) and while I was glad they didn't, it also felt the actual ending lacked anything interesting.

The whole season felt like it was fanfic, but not very good fanfic. I was sad they didn't have Jason and Jessica end up together; they seemed to really be growing together as people and friends. So Hoyt coming back and Jason getting all this personal growth with a Jessica stand-in was lame.

Also not fan of: Tara/Letty Mae "redemption". Alcide's unemotional death, Lafayette's last minute chance for true love. So much seemed to be going backwards.

I really wanted it to end after the staking with a fade to a table that as the camera pulls out, we see a group of people rolling ten sides dice and a couple "Vampire: The Masquerade" books on the table, character sheets in hand. Ideally cast consisting of Felicia Day, Vin Diesel, Chris Hardwick, and Stephen Colbert with Will Wheaton GMing.

I'm going to assume that Sookie's new hubby actually is Felix who was really a were-armadillo all along.

I'm assuming she's hooked up with Arlene's Dead Husband, Captain PTSD whose name I cannot recall. It looked a lot like him from the back, insofar as it was a dark-haired beardy whiteboy.

Sigh. I'd been hoping that the last season would do something like KILL ALL VAMPIRES, or have Sookie somehow destroy all the supernatural creatures on the Earth with her magical fairy vagina, or end up with the entire world under the rule of the Vampahr Authoritah. [lana] Noooope. [/lana]

OTOH, devoting half the episode to the Hanby/Fortenberry wedding was at least a lot better than the depths they could have sunk to.

It seemed like if they did anything but the staking, Bill may have ended up human, so I'm not sure how I feel about the staking or what the intent was. If Bill had somehow survived and let her think he was dead-- nah, can't even try to think a way around any of this. It is not last season of Dexter lumberjack bad, though, which I watched because I had to see what the uproar was about, and it really lived up to it. Surprise lumberjack bad is not a bar that is going to be met often if ever again. It's the new shark jump. But I don't think I can measure this on any scale of good to bad because I stopped judging it a while ago. I just let it happen, hoping for a head bopping drive home here and there, wondering what all the fuss was about with the OUTRAGE because that's like someone using the word "classy" not turning out "classy"-- really, what did you expect--

Still, that end with preggo and the mystery man? It's not a pointless "huh?" it's like someone asked someone's least imaginative grandma to fill in mad libs. I thought they might have been going for the classic "if it ends with a wedding it's a comedy" thing but no, nothing comes to mind that has anything to do with actual writing. It's all fifty shades of fan fiction from here on out.

I haven't watched True Blood regularly since Season3 or so, but tuned in for the last two episodes and finale.

That was astonishingly meh. At least the Battlestar Galactica finale managed to piss me off, but this? All I could think was "Well, at least I paused to make a good cup of coffee, so it wasn't a total waste."

Gay marriage metaphor/allegory. Particularly with Andy's line about "this marriage may not be legal in every state, but it should be."

I don't get the staking, at all. Bill was going to die anyway. (Or, at least he was supposed to die soon. Every other Hep V vamp dies, but I noticed that after a couple eps of Bill's case advancing super fast, it has stopped advancing because plot reasons.) There was absolutely no point in putting Sookeh through staking him.

Eric driving while bopping to techno was hilarious (although why he would ever drive is beyond me when he can just zoom places).

He needed to move the three corpses out of Sookeh's front yard, and leaving the Yakuzamobile there wouldn't exactly have been inconspicuous.

If the episode had just ended after Pam and Eric's infomercial, it might have been barely OK. I mean, that one bit was pretty great.

And hey, years of torment for Sarah Newland. Yay! Given that Eric and Pam are apparently billionaires now, it looks like they're keeping Fangtasia open for the sole purpose of torturing Sarah Newland. I mean, yeah, torturing someone for years is pretty hard work, but running an entire business to do so? That's dedication to your vengeance.

I may be biased since this is actually something that has happened in my family in the recent past, but having the ceremony earlier than ideal [and can we talk about whyever the fuck they decided to do it in the middle of the day?!] in order to include a parent (or Maker, I guess) on his deathbed is not unprecedented. That it wasn't legal was less important.

Jessica's arc is one of the saving graces for the series overall for me. She was essentially going through young childhood, puberty/adolescence, and adult self-actualization simultaneously; the weaning onto TruBlood, the learning to control her powers, the first relationship, the fallout of the mishandled first relationship, the discipline to not eat four entire faeries (oops!), the pain of release from her Maker, and on and on, she was really the heart of the whole thing... and (I believe) the only major character who never appeared in the books. I'm not ecstatic about the suddenly-getting-back-with-Hoyt of it all, but she's achieved some stability and learned to be an adult. So good for her, I guess.

That's dedication to your vengeance.

Perhaps you are not aware of how thousand-year-old Viking vampires operate.

Hint: vengefully.

I'm surprised at the hate for this episode. It was the best episode of the season, imho. I'm probably projecting a lot due to Recent Personal Life Events - the wedding, the loss of a loved one, etc. It's like they wrote this ep with me in mind. It mostly avoided the ridiculousness (except for Bill's staking). I felt Anna Paquin actually did some acting for once, there wasn't as much of the wide eyes and exaggerated lip quiver.

Then again, I watched it without subtitles so I missed a lot of the speechifying (I can pick up the gist of things and the emotional tone/volume, just not all of the words). Apparently I didn't miss much.

Random notes: the girl who played Tara was spot on in her voice/accent. I thought maybe they'd dubbed adult Tara over her!

Sam's kid is utterly adorable. I wish they'd told us if she was a shifter or not, that would have taken 5 seconds. Jason and Bridget wasted no time - 3 kids in 3 years, yikes. Hopefully he's curtailed his womanizing ways.

I mentioned this in the last thread, but the set design was awesome, especially Bill's house. I wonder if there is some site where you can buy all of that stuff; I know they often have sites like that for clothing featured in film/TV. If I had endless amounts of money I'd hire the designer for my own house.

How can they spend so much time outside in Louisiana? I follow a NOLA person on twitter and whenever she posts a weather update it's like the surface of the sun, if the sun were also a swamp.

Similarly, a few seasons ago someone reached through Lafayette's open, screenless living room window to grab at him and having just moved to the South, I said to my husband, "oh, hell, no." Nobody in rural Louisiana is going to have screenless windows! It's the little things, HBO.

Anyway, I quit watching when Alcide died and I have no regrets.

This is the show with naked sex vampires who explode into clouds of blood when they die, and who move around with a bad CGI blur effect and a "whoosh" sound effect. A show where every mythical creature of the night was at one time or another concentrated in a small Louisiana parish.

Not having ridiculousness isn't a mark in the show's favor.

Oh man, this finale pissed me off. Granted, I've been saying since Season 3 that they should have just spun off to the Pam and Eric Show, but... How on earth does Hoyt fucking Fortenberry get more to do in this finale than Lafayette?

At least Bill went out true to form, as a whiny, passive-aggressive jerk. Why not just lay down in the grave during sunrise and go out in a fireball. Godric did it right. (So once again, all things related to Eric are a zillion times better than anything Bill's come up with).

I keep wondering why Sookie didn't offer to reverse the glamouring. We know she can and Hoyt does seem a bit...put off by interacting with people who have known him since childhood, but he can't remember. Sookie has an easy fix but no one even mentions it. I could buy him not wanting it but they don't even say "Hey this is an option."

Also we needed more Lala. He really got shafted.

I still don't buy that Eric would be convinced by Bill's argument to leave Sookie alone and what about Bill's forecast that there would be a line of vampires after her for her blood without some vampire protection? The easy answer would be that Eric extends his protection over Sookie from a distance thus protecting her and letting her have a human life. Incidentally her husband may not be human. He could be were or shifter. It's hard to believe after all this time, and even in the last episode they emphasize this, Sookie SUDDENLY becomes attracted to a human being. Where would you even find one in Bon Temps?

When Sarah Newlin asked to be the woman behind the woman instead of the woman behind the man.....that was pretty special.

Now that we've reached the end, I'm even more irritated by the many minutes devoted to boring, repetitive Confederate Bill flashbacks; the writers had many other ways to convey Bill's growing sense that he wanted to live like he were dying or die to be like he were living or whatever.

Also, Tara's post true death shenanigans imply an afterlife even though former Vampire GodTM Bill claims he doesn't know what's coming next. Does he watch over Sookie still, protecting her fairy blood from hungry vampires?

Yep, this for the win. Perhaps Sookie's mystery dark-haired babydaddy could be ol' Barry the Telepath? In any event, not even showing the dude's face was a bit of an odd choice in a sea of odd choices.

Young Sookie seems to have been played by Lilac Emery-Haynes - and I believe she's Stephen Moyer's daughter IRL.

Adilyn is under Jessica's protection still. But what about her and Wade and their quasi incestuous love? Was the death of Violet enough to make them stop? That plot issue was abruptly stopped.

Barry the telepath is out of the running because he ate the light fruit. Remember what happened to granddaddy stackhouse? He ate the light fruit and died when he returned to this plane. Presumably the same would happen to Barry. Of course this doesn't mean mystery husband isn't a telepath he's just not THAT telepath.

Yes. In the season finale, the following occurred:
  • Jessica observes that Bill feels warm to the touch. "I know," he replies.
  • Later, Bill observes that he's feeling more human than ever.
  • Sookie discovers that she can read his mind, a skill she has heretofore only been able to apply to humans.

    I was really hoping that Bill would become human but they wouldn't find out until Sookie drove that stake through his heart. Instead of exploding into a pool of vampire guts he would have just died normally after both Sookie and him realized what was happening. YOU COULD HAVE GIVEN HER BABIES HUMAN BILL. TO BAD SHE JUST STAKED YOU TO DEATH ANYWAYS!

    Then Eric and Pam could have kidnapped her and sold two different types of special blood. Drink bottle A to stay a vampire and cure your hep V. Drink bottle B to be turned back into a human.

    Is it possible that Sookie ended up with Rich, or are you playing a completely different guy?

    You know, I was thinking about that, and I don’t think it’s terribly far-fetched that it’s Rich!
    Fuck that. She's married to Felix and they're going to have glowing halfling were-armadillo babies together, and Terry is going to be their ghostly godfather.

    Some of you are trying to make sense of this and that is not possible. True Blood operates on a kind of logic only found in the worst of soap operas. Logic so devoid of reason and sense it makes even Uwe Boll and Roland Emmerich say, "that shit's fucked up". Plot holes so large Roberto Orci, Damon Lindelof and Alex Kurtzman can only shake their heads in admiration. This is ineptitude on a scale that makes Italian bureaucrats weep. One can only step back and consider its magnitude.

    That said, I would pay an advance ticket for anything that would feature Kristin Bauer van Straten and Alexander Skarsgård. Unless it were directed by Michael Bay...

    They should have also had a brief scene where Sookie's belly started to glow because the baby was kicking.

    also acceptable: xenomorph

    Long overdue footnote, I was sad by the whole Tara storyline, because I thought she was going to be the new Lilith.
    (She was one of the vamps to drink the Billith power from Bill, and then possibly the first to die, then a whole Jesus-cross Lilith-snake motif which seemed to indicate some kind of resurrection was afoot.

    Ending was not nearly epic and crazy pants enough. Oh well.

    Apparently the writers, in interview, were like "whether Sookie ended up with Bill or Eric, we'd make half our fans mad, so we came up with a great solution!"
