So last night was the season finale of “True Blood,” which I felt much made up for a lot of this crappy season with some fantastic vampire kills. However the big question, who the heck is Warlow, was never answered! I kept waiting and waiting, and nothing. I was afraid they’d leave us hanging this way.
We picked up right were we left off last week, with Russell killing the Fairy Elder and then going after the fairies in their club. However Eric (and Nora) showed up immediately, and Eric staked Russell! Just like that, he was gone. I was actually stunned as so far he’s been the best villain the show has had. I guess though they have to make room for Warlow? Oh Steve then rain off like a frightened little girl, which was hilarious.
A big meeting was held between Tara, Eric, Nora, Jason and Sookie. Jason, for some reason, kept seeing his dead parents around him. I wasn’t sure what that was about at all, and why Sookie couldn’t see them. Tara had told Eric about Pam being captured, and that Jessica was there too. Eric told them all about Bill going nuts, and how he felt Sookie was the only one who might be able to save him from the cult of Lilith. Jason was against helping the blood suckers given what happened to their parents, but Tara said Sookie owed her and Pam. Sookie agreed, and on the way to the authority compound Jason railed at her about all that has happened to them, including Crystal. Wow, I thought they had totally forgotten about the WerePanthers. Maybe there is hope that storyline will come back? Though given how much is going on, perhaps they don’t need another story.
Sookie, Eric and Tara infiltrated the Authority, and met up with Jessica there to rescue Pam. All hell was basically breaking lose. Bill led Salome to believe Lilith told him that she had been chosen to lead them . . . but later he staked her. Meanwhile Eric and Company rescued Pam, and Tara and Pam had a long make-out session. Jessica had a great line when she exclaimed “I knew it!” Even Sookie was stunned.
Later, Eric and Sookie tried to get through to Bill, but it seems like he’s just too damn crazy. He decided to drink all of Lilith’s blood as she kept commanding him to. When he did so, he exploded in a puddle of goop. Wait, what? Bill is dead? Nope! Just like Lilith, a naked Bill rose from the pile of blood! I figured Lilith would be resurrected this way, I guess I just never expected her to come back as a man! As a facebook friend called him/her . . . . Here’s Bilith! Does this mean Bilith will walk around naked and covered in blood? I was really hoping that by the end of this season we have just been done with Lilith, but nope! I really hope they don’t drag this on too far into next season. I’d like to see it quickly resolved and then they all move on.
Other things going on . . . . elsewhere in the compound Sam and Luna were put in cages, as if that could really keep them trapped though. They were locked up with a lot of other humans who were there as meat for the vamps. Sam and Luna concocted a plan to rescue Emma and get out. They turned themselves into flies to make there way around the compound. Luna turned into Steve Newlin and grabbed Emma, and then she tried to leave. However she was then quickly grabbed by Rosalyn. Rosalyn was fuming as the press was smearing the Vampire Authority, she had found out about his and Russell’s frat party adventure, and Russell was no where to be found. She demanded he immediately go on the air and fix things. Unfortunately while on air, Luna began to literally fall apart. She puked up blood and then morphed back into herself. She then went into an on-air rant about the vampires! As Rosalyn stood there . . . mouth open in horror . . . Sam as a fly flew in and she swallowed him. Yup . . . he morphed back and exploded her from the inside out. It was probably the best vampire kill ever on the show! However Luna seemed in pretty poor shape by the end of the show. Once again it seems like they may kill her off? I hope they don’t do that.
Alcide meanwhile got a visit from Emma’s grandma and the woman who was to be his second. She was tweaking bad from the V, and Emma’s grandma said he had to stand up and take JD down. Unfortunately he couldn’t do that without V. Aclide’s dad then revealed he kept a stash of very powerful V, top notch stuff, for situations when people try and kill him. He gave it to Alcide, who used it kill JD and take over the pack. I couldn’t help but wonder if the blood was Warlow’s? Alcide’s dad noted that is was a very powerful dose of V . . . it clearly was more powerful than Russell’s blood.
Finally Andy’s fairy girlfriend showed up pregnant at Merlotte’s, and Andy was forced to come clean with Holly, who wasn’t pleased. Then Holly realized Andy’s fling wasn’t exactly normal. When light began streaming out of her “area,” well that was a big clue. Lafeyette, Arlene and Baby Jane (who was a character during the whole Marianne storyline) sat around and watched as the fairy gave birth to four little girls! After she was done, she got up, told Andy to take good care of them, and then walked out. Oh brother! What was the point of this? Are the fairies trying to build up an army or something?
It will be a long year until the show returns. Next year Alan Ball will no longer be the show-runner, so it will be interesting to see how much of a change in direction the show takes.
