I just heard season 7 will be the end of True blood, NO! NO! Don’t do it! Maybe Eric is dead since the show is ending in 2014. Why? Why ? I guess after the rushed last 15 mins of the finale it all makes sense now! Not happy :(

I agree that it was too rushed. Why not explain the missing six months over a few more episodes. Warlow was too easily killed. He had just locked Jason in Erics old bedroom but yet Jason got free and made it inside the bathroom before Warlow did to kill him? Whatever! I know it’s fiction but come on writers, your loyal TB fans expect more than this!

That had to be one of the worst season finale I’ve ever seen. What a mess. It was like putting two different season together into one show and I doubt Eric is really dead. He is absolutely amazing and can survive anything. Besides why would they kill off the best character they have?

Also, this was the worst season by far. Sookie just has sex with someone she just met? People are hooking up left and right with no reason! The whole Pam/Tara thing is weird too. No history, nothing, and for no reason, they are done? While Terry was a good supporting character, the whole season focused on him. And don’t get me going on that fire monster from last year. I feel that Sookie and the main characters got even less attention. A whole episode to a funeral? Flashbacks? Really? what a waste! I am really dissapointed with this season, especially after last years. Tara getting shot was the last best season finale since this show began.

Eric is not dead! We saw him catch aflame, but no die. Pam left to go find him and I bet the writers did this because well, Eric does not die!

Ok, first off, if you’re courteous enough to write in bold letters at the beginning of this article not read on due to spoilers, why the hell would you entitle the article with the biggest spoiler of all? Some of us were working, you totally ruined it for those of us having to watch it the next day.
Anyway, I %100 do not believe Eric is dead. Such a central character would not have such a sudden, careless death. We already know Pam is on her way to find Eric, and I’m certain she’ll save him in the nick of time. We already know from past episodes that vamps can combust into flames and recover, which I think would obviously happen since we didn’t actually see Eric die, which would’ve been essential if they meant for him to die seeing as how it’s the season finale. Additionally, I’m sure when we saw Tara and Willow they would have been grieving, as they would’ve felt the death of their makers. This is also an awesome set up for next season, for fans’ broken hearts to recover upon finding out that Eric is in fact alive.

Eric never drank from Bill and It was actually Warlow’s blood that gave the vampires the ability to walk in daylight which is why it you it disappeared when he died. What you saw leaving the vampires was Warlow’s light.

Actually it was the other way around. None of the day-time vamps drank Warlow’s blood. They fed on Bill at the camp. They fed on Bill so much that he lost his Lillith-ness.
Eric is the only one who fed on Warlow – up in fairy land, courtesy of Adelaine’s blood key. So when Jason staked Warlow, Warlow died and took his magic with him.
I can explain all of that but I can’t explain why Eric would have been sunbathing in the middle of the Alps with no retreat. That did feel cheap. But thanks for the frontal!!

Actually, Bill drank Warlow’s blood from when he had the scientist synthesize the blood or whatever. His lillith blood did not save him from the light. If you remember correctly, he walked out into the sun believing it would allow him to walk into the light and Jessica had to drag him back in. That is when he got the scientist to collect fairy blood.

So, yes…it was Warlow’s light that was leaving the vampires. Connect all the dots, not just the two you want to connect.

I’m tired of the Bill and Sookie show with a smidge of everyone else. It’s okay to forgive but we as viewers will never forget so pair Bill and Sookie back up and destroy the foundation of the show which is Eric and Sookie

The whole episode was a major disappointment to be frank. Not just the suggestion that Eric is dead. All of it. Sookie and Alcide, wrong, just wrong. I’m getting the impression that Tara’s mother has tricked her, if that had occurred fully I would have accepted it, but they’ve left a half-arsed cliff hanger there. As for Merlotte’s being no more… no comment. Sam Mayor? WHY? They should have pulled and trapped Warlow back in the other plane, killing a 6500 year old fairy vampire so easily is just another blunder in some incredibly lazy writing… in fact, the only bit that fit in well was Bill’s book. The rest was rubbish.

I agree with most of that. Warwlow was dispatched much too easily for my taste. WTH?
It was a hoot to see Bill plugging a book saying that he was a god. After all of his “I AM NOT A GOD!” talk. LOL He loves the power and the spotlight doesn’t he?

The whole episode just seemed like rushed nonsense to me. I mean, Sams mayor? Really? They spill their sorrows to him after one too many and mows he’s qualified to run the town? Right. Eric cannot be dead, he just randomly bursts into flames and doesn’t think “dig for your life” immediately, mayb this is where pan finds him and rescues him somehow, I don’t know. Warlow was turned around far too quickly, from her loving fairy prince and then cast off without so much as a death to anyone. Also we saw Eric’s sister die in his arms from the same disease that everyone she had. She didnt turn into a blood sucking zombie, she you know, got sick and then she died. I mean what is this the walking dead?

Actually the walking dead zombie like vampires are from a mutated strain of the Hep-v virus. After they fast fwd 6 months, you hear the news anchor say something along those lines.

The ending of the episode felt a lot like The Walking Dead with the vampires with the disease ganging up and trying to attack the humans.

Getting rid of Eric would destroy the show. He is basically the Daryl Dixon (The Walking Dead) of True Blood. Girls want to watch him and they will lose a lot of views. The books say that she ends up with him. I know that it is very different from the books but could we please keep some things the same!

I was kind of glad that they got rid of the ability to see the sun because there are a lot of vampires that don’t deserve that ability.

I read all the books and she does not end up with Eric but he doesn’t die either plus there re
ally is no comparison to the show and the books anymore not since season 3 they are completely different entities. I also don’t think they would just kill off Eric like that at least I hope not.

I don’t understand how humans would all of a sudden be carriers for a virus that was MADE and only carried in tru blood bottles? Why would they all of a sudden need to be tested when it wasnt a natural virus created by the human body? All the changes seemed kind of dumb.

Emma say's it's not that hard to understand

Posted at 11:35 PM on August 19, 2013  

Because Humans who got into contact with infected Vampires, and lived, became carriers of the virus. Due to the fact that the virus has no effect on them, it can stay in the living body indefinitely with 0 repercussions to them or other supernaturals. It’s basically forcing vampires who don’t want to get infected to not feed on humans. Normal Vampires who want to drink human blood (because no 1 trusts true blood anymore) now have to be cautious of which humans they feed on because they may have gotten infected. the Hep V vampires, feeling like they have nothing left to lose, are going crazy by killing off everybody by draining them to death. The clean vampires are willing to protect the humans but only if they can feed on non carriers of the virus so they they wont intern become hep v vamps.

I feel that with Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) gone, I have no desire to watch the show. For me, he was the heart of the show. I will not be watching season 7 or any other season for that matter.

I agree with jenn. Eric is one of the best characters. I wont watch it either. I dont like the “six months later” gimmick, i didnt like the vamps losing their light, i thought all the happenings in the six months later were weak. Sam as mayor? The scene with Jason and Violet having sex and discussing oral sex was ridiculous and unnecessary and gratuitous. Good moment? Niall bursting from the portal grabbing Warlow. Love the Niall character. All in all, not a good ending esp if Eric is gone.

I think they thought this was going to be the last season since Alan Ball left last year. Hence the reason the 6 month later part seemed kinda thrown together last minute. Don’t write Eric off yet, remember he still had some fae blood from Adeline to get to Warlow; recall the season with Russell where he was handcuffed to Eric outside after they drank Sookie’s blood. Adeline is a direct descendant from a fae so hers might be more powerful and able to sustain Eric until he can hide. I’m sure everyone knows that True Blood cannot go on without our lovable Viking.

I loved season 1 and 2. Season 1 followed the Stackhouse series (a dark comedy) closely. It took me awhile to get the joke, but once I did, (and stopped gasping) I was laughing.
Remember when Jason had to swallow a whole vile of True Blood in order to hide it while sitting in the police car?
Season 2 didn’t follow the book, it was darker, but also had that dark comedy feel. In season 2, I was at first horrified and then laughed aloud when Eric, with his hair tied up in foil due to having his hair bleached by Pam, walked down into the dungeon to greet a prisoner. It was a Horrific scene in that dungeon and all Eric could talk about was his hair. You’d have to see it.-if you dare…
My husband enjoys this series. So we continue to watch every Sunday. I would have stopped after year 3 because that’s when everything changed.The series lost its focus. Rather than build on what was working and create the plots from the Stackhouse series. ( and there are many great ideas in the Harris series never touched on in the TV series) the producers fill True Blood with fragmented sensational themes meant mostly to shock it’s audience, (Ithink). I also think the change in the series had to do with its popularity and the dollars it brought in. The writers lost their freedom with that popularity. As I continue to watch the show with my husband, I wait for those few moments in the series where the actors seem to pull off a clever scene. It’s usually a vampire scene. However, even the actors seem to know when a scene is just stupid or fragmented. I have to hand it to the Eric character, he holds true to the dark comedy part of his character when ever possible. The original cast are excellent actors doing their best with silly lines.

Eric´s not dead. They needed a cliffhanger and couldn´t be bothered to come up with a good one. And the cgi is tragic.

Pam would’ve burnt too if she went out. I mean Erik (much older and stronger) couldn’t take more than a few steps before burning out.

This is addressed in the series. The older a vampire is, the faster they burn. They talked about it around the time that Godrick met the sun.
