True Blood, stop trying to make Bill happen! It’s not going to happen!

Calling it now: Warlow dies to save the rest of vampire kind, somehow taking Lillith with him (some sort of Harry/Voldemore sitch), making Billith just plain Bill again. Sookie winds up pregnant with Warlow’s vampire/fairy, who Bill & Eric need to protect. The vision comes to fruition and all of those vampires meet the sun, but since they’ve drank Warlow’s blood, they’re fine.

The werewolves + Sam continue to be irrelevant. And Lafayette rocks and needs more screen time complaint here.

Really???

I’m actually sick of True Blood. I used to be a huge fan but now I’m seriously bored. Who cares about past encounters of Eric with yet another Female Vampire to be, such a waste of screen time for nothing. Don’t get me wrong, I love Eric but I think we see too much of him at the expense of other equally important characters. For instance, Tara is totally underused which is a pity, I actually got to like her (althought I must admit it was an acquired taste), Sam has suddenly become super boring and let’s face it, useless (they should have explored his relationship with Tara imho), Sookie is again having sex outdoors with some creature (and it’s all she’s doing really despite the fact they are trying to keep her busy with inferior storylines like this going to the bank thing)and Jess is so f***** annoying. I don’t understand the appeal, I mean, why here?

Thank God, Lafayette is there for some fun relief and to remind us that he is the only really interesting character.

I much prefered older episodes with mysteries that were all Bon Temps based. I’m sick of Lilith, governors and other Great authorities that take our characters into high scale stories that are not even developped properly. I miss Lettie Mae (she was just so hilarious), Antonia Gavilán, Maryann Forrester, Anne-Sophie and Vampires trying lo live among humans, etc.

So destroy the Nazi facility and kill the pack storyline ASAP and bring Sookie, Tara, Sam, Jason and yes, even Terry, back to Merlotte because so far, season 6 of True Blood is the one I like the least.

If you listened to what they said at comic-con, that’s exactly what they are going to do; bring the whole show back to Bon Temps so it feels like it’s one show again.

I did listen to what they say at comic con but we won’t c it for another year. What matters is that, right now, the season really sucks.

This episode basically sucked. The Eric and Nora scenes were the only redeeming features of this episode. The 1 minute and 30 seconds they gave us of Warlow and Sookie just felt like a mean tease. The rest of it was insanely boring or felt like an episode of Days of Our Lives.

Warlow and Sookie was just casual sex. I do not think she’s in love with him. Even Sookie had sex without falling in love (though this might be the one time she should). It was quiet, and not necessarily great. Kinda bore.

I don’t care whether the sex was casual, who loves who etc. I just want to know more about Warlow and the only way that is happening is screen time with Sookie or Bill. To me he is the most interesting character they have introduced and I want more.

True, there was. I wrote my initial post immediately after watching it and I had been looking forward to it all week…it was just a little slow and anti climactic compared to the previous episodes. I guess you always need calm before a storm.

Most of the episode may have been poorly done and true blood may be becoming kinda over shadowed by new series “cough( Game of thrones) cough” but nevertheless the finale scene with Eric and Nora was just beautifully done and true blood made me cry for the first time. When Eric is so miserable and sad he says just how sorry he is and that he failed her because he promised her that she would live forever. Nora says her last line, that she didn’t ask to live forever but wanted to live her life fully, and that Eric gave her that.
So I may be all and all disappointed by the season but that scene made up for it and that is saying A LOT

That was the worse episode of True Blood history I’ve ever seen. The funeral that was not. Sex with no meaning.There were more sex scenes than there was story. And when there was story it was horrible. First why did they bring in that new vampire Violet, I can’t stand her, she has the mysterious look and you can tell that’s what the actress is playing for. Each episode of this season has gotten me more agitated per episode but this episode called Funeral that was not beats the cake. This writer ruined True Blood for me. Everybody is separated from each other. He’s bringing in new characters when he’s not even doing a good job with the ones we had since the beginning.

I agree. it was a really bad episode. and I don’t get the deal with Violet either. I find the character Willa a super bore. Jessica is turning into a really unlikable character. I don’t like this new Eric that whines over Nora and doesn’t love Sookie. I wouldn’t mind if they killed off all those characters. I LOVE Warlow and hope they keep him. I would be sad to see Alcide or Sam gone. Pam is the much needed comedy relief. the show would be crazy to kill her off.

Hate to break it to you, but at this point Eric is pretty much over Sookie. He has his family & the entire vampire race to worry about while Sookie seems only focused on her vagina and for the moment Arlene.

I totally agree with you, especially with the way characters are handled!!! The ones we know and love aree handled poorly (Tara is totally underused, Jessica is sooooooooooooo annoying, always whining and who cares about Eric’s many past lives and corresponding outfits, Jason is dumber and dumber but above all, we have a hard time caring about him, he is totally misused, Sookie has become useless, let’s just face the music, and so has Sam, actually, the writers are traeting our beloved characters with contempt, why, what did they ever do to you?)

Really??? Season 5 was worse, and so was season 4. For the record, this episode was not called “The Funeral,” and we still haven’t seen the funeral yet. Also, the characters are a lot closer to each other this season than they were last year. I can think of several episodes last season that were worse than this.

Definitely agree. This was just the worst episode of this season. The whole of season 5 was bad, I struggled through every episode. So far this season I have looked forward to every episode, after such anticipation this one episode was just a bit of a let down.

I totally disagree with you. The characters are not close at all!!!! Tara is all alone, jessica sleepswith some random vamp while Jason is right outside the door, everybody hates or is afraid of Bill, they had to kill terry to give Arlene some screen rime, Pam is seeing a shrink.

To me, this season is really the worst so far.

Oh please. Last season Eric and Bill were trapped in the authority basement, Pam and Tara were stuck at fangtasia, Sam and Luna had their thing, Alcide was with the wolves, Jessica was screwing somebody and cheating on Hoyt some more, Jason and Andy were being dumb detectives, and Sookie….did nothing. Besides I was replying more to Tina on that subject. A lot of the characters this season are in the same location one way or another, it’s not like they have completely disconnected storylines like the last two seasons have.

Season 4, Sookie and Eric were busy screwing, Andy was taking V and wasting time with Holly, Sam was messing with his brother and screwing Luna, Bill being king and trying to fight a witch, Jason getting screwed by werepanthers and then screwing his best friend’s girl, Tara being in a lesbian relationship…do I need to go on. By the way season 4 was not only not great, it was when the show really started taking a nosedive.

By the way, Pam isn’t seeing a shrink, she’s using a shrink.

That’s fine if you think this season is the worst, I just don’t agree.

Eric was great in this episode and very sad between him and Nora …Sookie after having a strong first 4 episodes is now regressing into bad choices and stupid behavior…I hope pam didn’t have sex with the therapist but she will do what she need to do.

Get over it…the writer’s are not going to put Eric and Sookie back together. I, like almost every other TB fan wanted them together, they gave us all they are going to give of E & S, so it’s time to move on. Sookie has moved on and she is making choices, not bad choices just choices as that is what life is. Also, her behaviour is no more stupid than any other character on the show including Eric.

If they start following the line of the villain and psychotic Warlow as promised last season, so sorry, the writer’s are going to put Eric and Sookie back together and if you dislike Eric, don’t worry you can pray for Beall..

@Ulrik I don’t hate Eric. I like Eric and totally shipped him and Sookie. I found the way they got together in season 4 a bit of a sell out and I would be really surprised if they put them together again romantically. Basically Warlow just trumped them all for me (Bill, Eric, Alcide, Sam) and I find him to be the most realistic match that they have put forward for Sookie.

I liked this episode even though if felt like a lot of filler. I always enjoy a good flashback scene, and Eric looked like Lestat though, and the accent was God awful. I love when we see Eric “feel” and I think he did a great job with it. TB writers more Eric, please.
