Oh. My. Vampire. God. After a hit-or-miss season, True Blood‘s Aug. 26 finale was a non-stop barrage of perfection. When the dust finally settled, we were left with four characters dead, five characters born, and one mind-blowing question we’ll be pondering until June 2013: Is this really the end of the road for Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer)?
Humans vs. vampires vs. fairies? It’s getting hard to keep track of the sides — and the casualties. With only one more episode until True Blood‘s fifth season finale, we’ve basically reached an ‘every species for itself’ situation. While the humans threatened full-on war with the vampires Aug. 19, Russell (Denis O’Hare) went on a fairy-nomming…
It seems like each new episode of True Blood reveals yet another traitor within the Vampire Authority, and that honor belonged to Russell (Denis O’Hare) on the Aug. 12 episode, as he formally gave his “f**k you” to Lilith and all of her brainless followers. He plans to go fairy hunting — Sookie (Anna Paquin) is obviously at the top of his menu — and synthesize the fae blood, just like the vampire scientists manufactured Tru Blood.
Here’s my first question about this week’s True Blood: Where has this episode been all season? Not only did the thousands of story lines finally start to connect Aug. 5, but even the really ridiculous ones — I’m looking at you, fire/smoke monster — became awesome. You know who didn’t became awesome, though? Bill (Stephen Moyer). He still kind of sucks.
Remember a few weeks ago when I said Bill (Stephen Moyer) was going to embrace the Authority’s evil, human-nomming ways and everybody called me a Bill-hater? It looks like Team Bill is going to have some serious defending to do, as that’s exactly what happened on the July 29 episode of True Blood. Despite Eric’s (Alexander Skarsgard) best efforts, he wasn’t able to coax the Good King away from Lilith’s army.
True Blood fans know it’s hardly a secret that Pam (Kristin Bauer Van Straten) hates Sookie (Anna Paquin). In fact, she’s always hated Sookie, and probably always will — but when will she finally do something about it? HollywoodLife.com caught up with Kristin at a party celebrating True Blood‘s Forsaken collection July 26 in NYC, and she assured us Pam is definitely “looking for an opportunity for revenge.”
After nearly seven weeks of incessant name dropping, Lilith finally appeared in the flesh July 22 on True Blood — or did she? Russell Edgington (Denis O’Hare) and his newly assembled Authority certainly seemed to think so, but it turns out their precious Jesus vampire isn’t everything they dreamt she’d be. In fact, she was literally a dream!
