I knew ‘True Blood’ wasn’t going to hold back in its final season, but I just never expected the show to actually kill off a main character so terribly. Yeah ‘True Blood,’ I’m side-eyeing you right now.
On the season seven premiere of True Blood, we had to say goodbye to one of our favorites characters since season one. Unfortunately, it was Tara (Rutina Wesley) who met the true death and was reduced to a gross pile of vampire goo. So why am I mad? 1) It’s Tara and 2) Her death was so unfair to the character arc True Blood had been building for her.
Plus, Sookie faces off against Pam — before making a major confession.
I don’t want to say nothing happened on the June 24 episode of True Blood, but I will say it was a relatively calm week in Bon Temps. The night did, however, set the stage for some pretty epic story lines to come, including the return of the fairies. (Yep, they’re back.)
Watch a preview video from tonight’s all-new episode of ‘True Blood.’
Sookie (Anna Paquin) and Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) thought they made the right decision by asking Pam (Kristin Bauer Van Straten) to turn Tara (Rutina Wesley) into a vampire, but on the June 17 episode of True Blood, they’ll begin to question that decision — especially when Tara attacks them, fangs out!
Spoiler alert: Stop reading if you haven’t watched the fifth season premiere of ‘True Blood.’
I’d like to preface this rant by clarifying that I think Rutina Wesley is a fantastic actress. And she’s very pretty. That said, I’m kind of disappointed that Tara managed to survive her should-have-been-fatal gunshot wound on the June 10 season premiere of True Blood. As much as I worship the writers — without them, we’d have no show to enjoy — I feel like they’ve never really known what to do with Tara, and I’m not sure her new life as a vampire will solve that problem.
A ghost? A vampire? Alan Ball & Rutina Wesley give fans a clue about how we’ll see Tara this season.
We all know the fifth season of True Blood will feature the return of fan-favorite villain Russell Edgington (Denis O’Hare), but there’s one return fans are still in the dark about — until now! Creator Alan Ball confirms that gunshot-victim Tara (Rutina Wesley) is “still a part of the show,” but it’s still anyone’s guess as to how she’ll continue existing in Bon Temps.
New footage from the show’s upcoming fifth season gives major clues to our most burning questions — and, as always, leaves new questions to be answered.
True Blood‘s fifth season premieres June 10 on HBO, which means we’re just 12 days away from finding out whether or not Tara (Rutina Wesley) survived that seemingly fatal gunshot to her head. We can only speculate until then, but this brand-new trailer gives us our biggest clue yet: A teary Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) tells Sookie (Anna Paquin), “You survived, you always do,” seeming to imply that someone else did not fare so well.
A new batch of posters for the upcoming fifth season of ‘True Blood’ include Sookie’s presumed-dead BFF!
True Blood has always been great at two things: incorporating puns into its advertising — the new tagline for season five is “everything is at stake” — and keeping viewers guessing about what’s next. Fans have been dying to know whether or not Tara (Rutina Wesley) survived her seemingly fatal gunshot wound since last season’s finale, and her inclusion in the show’s new collection of character posters is only making us all more curious!
Warning: Don’t read if you haven’t watched the season finale of ‘True Blood.’ Things are about to get… spoiler-y.
Five deaths, two disappointed vampires and one unsettling return added up to a seriously mind-blowing True Blood season finale. And while I predict a lot of fans have a bad taste in their mouth after the Sept. 11 episode, I loved every minute — and more importantly — every twist.
Plus, ‘old’ Eric rears his ugly head! Do you wish he was still cute & cuddly, or are you glad he has his memory back?
Ding-dong, the witch is dead! Well, sort of. On the Sept. 4 episode of True Blood, Jesus (Kevin Alejandro) used his insane brujo powers — see the terrifying image above — to separate Marnie (Fiona Shaw) from Antonia and lower the forcefield around the Moon Goddess Emporium, allowing Bill (Stephen Moyer) and Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) to bust in and finish her off.
Talk about a compromise! What did you think of tonight’s epic ménage à Temps?
After three long seasons of Bill-or-Eric drama, Sookie (Anna Paquin) finally asked a very important question on the Aug. 21 episode of HBO’s True Blood: “Why can’t I have both?” The end result was a steamy scene that gave both Bill (Stephen Moyer) and Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) fans reason to pause. Then rewind, and play again.
The beautiful couple learns that ‘all is possible’ when they find yet another venue for the old bump & grind.
I’ve been patiently waiting for True Blood‘s Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) and Sookie (Anna Paquin) to get nasty for three seasons, but after the past three weeks, I think I’m ready to see them put their clothes back on. After exchanging blood, the couple spent most of the Aug. 14 episode having drug-induced sex in a Narnia-style fantasy. “Can we make love in it?” Eric asked upon seeing a bed. Try and guess Sookie’s answer.
Plus, the witches drive the vampires to mass-suicide. (Don’t do it, friends! Sookeh needs you!)
The love square that is Sookie Stackhouse’s life got a little more complicated — and awkward — on the Aug. 8 episode of True Blood when Alcide (Joe Manganiello) walked in on Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) plowing Sookie (Anna Paquin) in the woods. Sookie and Eric eventually returned home, where they proceeded to deliver what can only be described as soft-core porn.
Eric & Sookie finally consummated their timeless romance, while Bill drowned his sorrows in a glass of wine. Did I mention he was alone?
I’ve been looking forward to the July 31 episode of True Blood — the much-hyped full moon episode — for a while now, and I have to be honest, it was a little disappointing. As it turns out, you can’t “make” someone a were-panther, so Jason (Ryan Kwanten) didn’t get his big transformation, despite the many episodes dedicated to building up his story line. That being said, I was definitely NOT disappointed by the very last scene, in which Sookie (Anna Paquin) and Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) made sweet nasty love in the middle of the woods!
Took them long enough! Somewhere Bill Compton is weeping big red tears.
The moment we’ve been waiting for all season — well, really for the past three seasons — finally happened on the July 24 episode of True Blood: Sookie (Anna Paquin) finally kissed Eric (Alexander Skarsgard)! It wasn’t a dream, she wasn’t being glamoured, and no one was in any danger of being killed. She did it because she wanted to do it, and I couldn’t be happier.
Another outstanding episode! Does anyone else think this season might be the best one yet?
Sookie (Anna Paquin) and Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) continued playing the world’s most awkward game of “house” ever on the July 3 episode of True Blood, and I’m really starting to wonder what’s wrong with Sookie. A rich, hot, powerful vampire is throwing himself at her, and she won’t even give him a chance? This girl needs to get her head examined!
