Sunday was indeed a very busy day for TV viewers, we had to mayor season finales and new episodes from Breaking Bad and The Newsroom. True Blood has said good bye already announcing its return for next summer. I want to begin by stating that this season improved so much from the last two seasons. In a weird way this season has re-staged the main struggle of the people of Bon Temps and it showed us all of the very delicate and fragile nature of the story. There were some emotional moments, but really the death of Terry was not that important…The producers of the show intended to make it more relevant of what it actually was.. Still there were many beautiful touching moments at the funeral… So lets take a look at the season finale of True Blood..
Since the last episode, we saw the demise of the camp. Every human being except for Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) were slaughtered. The camp was destroyed, but still many of the contaminated blood was transferred. At the beginning of the episode Eric says goodbye to Pam, flying into the skies. A heart shattering scene for Pam who even at the great exhilarating joy of looking at the sun, felt the agony of loosing Eric again..The vampires head to Bills Mansion…Pam later says goodbye to Tara..She needs to look for Eric.
Warlow and Sookie
Sookie leaves the funeral alongside a too hairy Alcide. She is wondering about Jason because he was not present at Terry’s funeral. However, Alcide smells something weird: Some day-walking vampires. She follows the herd of vampires and soon finds Jason being bitten by a female vampire called Violet. The rising new top bitch in True Blood! So she feels relieved that her vampire friends are saved. So she returns to see Warlow hoping to “date” before turning into a hybrid of fairy and vampire. But the once chivalrous and sweet sexy Warlow, turned against Sookie. And instead he forced her into their new “marriage”. He is no longer willing to wait for her any longer…he wants his part of the bargain…he wants Sookie at all cost!
Is no longer divine. He lost all of his powers and now he enjoy nothing more than himself. Somehow it seem he misses the power and greatness. And as he settles back again into his old way of being. He notices he has harmed Sookie and that he sentenced her to an eternity with Warlow. In his eyes the glow of his former love for Sookie reemerges and the pain and agony returns. Jessica is by his side and she recognises the old Bill, who is worried for Sookie. And here comes one of the best lines of the Season Finale, if not the best one (BTW this was a season of great lines, mostly delivered by the great Pam). Jessica reminded Bill, that her mission as his progeny was to protect his humanity and that he must fight for Sookie, not only out of love, but out of his own sake. He needs to be Bill back again. Too much time he has spent in the dark side of power and cruelty…And so ladies and gentlemen we have Bill back..So he gets Jason and tells him of the dangerous situation of Sookie. Both of them leave to find Sheriff Bellfleur’s daughter in order to find the fairy place in the graveyard… Jason is followed by his badass new kind of girlfriend…Its weird some how, it all began like a captor-prisoner relationship and has developed into a serious monogamous relation…
Warlow’s last Stand
Sheriff Bellfleur is not very happy of seeing Bill and he wants to protect his daughter (who has been constantly used by vampires). But in the end, he accepts to aid Sookie. So they finally get into the fairy side of the Graveyard. They succeed in saving Sookie and Bill struggles to fight Warlow. But Warlow is more powerful, kicking his ass repeatedly. However Jason is able to Sookie home were she is been taken care for.. But Warlow returns and he passes easily the obstacles set up by Jason and Sheriff Bellfleur. He looks for Sookie in the bathroom and just as he is close to closing what he started, Sookie’s grandpa returns and he holds Warlow, while Jason enters the room to put a stake in his heart. The great Warlow dies..Bringing Sookie some peace. But for the other vampires who once had tasted his blood, his death brought the end to their tanning days..the effect was lost. And once again vampires returned to the shadows.. And then it came a scene…which I have been waiting since the beginning of True Blood: Eric goes in full frontal.. He was taking the sun in a snowy mountain (naked)…and there he receives the bad news of Warlow’s death…So his whole body gets into flames, not before sharing his most precious good. There has been debate on the size of it….But hey we have seen him using it with Sookie, so for the haters: Is not about the size its about the use 🙂
Six months later
So after this events, there is a hiatus. And we return to Bon Temps Six Months later. What happened to the vampires? How is Sookie? What happened to the infected vampires and Hepatitis V?
Six months later Bill is back on TV. He is the author of a new book that talks about the terrible events of the Camp. He makes emphasis on the terrible legacy of Governor Burrell and the catastrophic damage to the vampire population. The interviewer seems to support Bill’s cause by rejecting the use of a manufactured disease that may destroy a complete population…
Sookie and …… Alcide?
Looking at Bill in the TV is Sookie, who stares at Bill with some of the old feelings she once had for him. But she is not alone. A hot beautiful shaved Alcide steps in, taking Sookie to “have dinner”. We hope to see more of that next season. Definitely Sookie despite the fact her life, family and friends are always at risk during the show, she has has “dinner” with the most handsome and hot supernatural character ever (Bill, Eric, Warlow and Alcide). Good Lord ! This girl knows how to party! Damn her…
Violet and Jason
Jason is found going under Violet.. An after he finishes, he demands that he wants to have “dinner” and not only an entree (which only she is enjoying). But still she disagrees… This my friends could be sexual exploitation..Jason is tired.. But God knows how much we hate Violet…Jason is the sexual fantasy of any female or gay fan of True Blood.
Bon Temps new Mayor
The next scene shows the coming together of two congregations: one is traditionally of white people and the other one of black people. The reverend (BTW the husband of Tara’s recovered alcoholic mother) integrates the room, making all of them seating in other places. The true spirit of coming together of uniting. The reverend announces the increasing thread of sick hepatitis V Vampires, coming to Bon Temps to destroy them all. So he then introduces the mayor, the one and only Sam Merlotte. One of Sookie’s old admirers , who actually is expecting a baby…So Sam talks about a new alternative to this rising risk…He proposes that each human should enter into a monogamous relationship with a vampire, where the vampire could feed from he or she, in exchange of protection of this new thread. Most people seem to be against! So Sam announces that they should all go to a party at Arlene’s new restaurant, where they could meet the vampires and arrange how to manage their new relations….
Jessica and Sheriff Bellfleur
Jessica is at Arlene’s fest and she is looking for someone. Its not her hot rocker boyfriend who is singing with the band. She is looking for Sheriff Bellfleur. He visits him and despite his anger, she declares to protect the Sheriff and his daughter against all foes…Even if doesn’t want to…
The Cliffhanger of the Season
Sookie and Alcide attend Arlene’s fest but they leave quickLy. They encounter Bill who brings a very uncomfortable situation for the three of them. Bill wants to talk to Sookie, but she does not want to…Alcide is being territorial..But all of a sudden a herd of sick hepatitis V Vampires arrive heading towards the fest…and that is how this season ended..
From all the vampire stories in television, this is one of my favourite. The darkness of its humour and the deep tragedy of its characters makes it fun to watch. This season returned the focus on the main issues behind the relationship between supernatural creatures and humanity…It was a season of lots of departures…. Nora… Terry….Steven Newlin..But also it was the return of Bon Temps. For me that was the whole point behind the death of Terry..to show how the people of the town matters and how the faith of all depends on their unity…This was an easier season to deal with..There was no Vampire religion or Witches…it was more basic and it was quite raw… True Blood has once more re-established it self as one of the best shows of the summer and a story that is still relevant for its viewers..The Hepatitis V has become the new danger behind our characters. And next season will surely bring more surprises…
For now…lets take a close look to Dracula, a show that is coming soon, starring the hot Jonathan Rhys Meyer….Its not HBO, but still lets give this show a chance…At least does not look, corny as Vampire Diaries (Which by the way is quite bad).
