True Blood Finale: Yeah It Sucked!

True Blood Finale: Yeah It Sucked!

So last night was the final “True Blood,” and the reaction of many on social media wasn’t positive. Some did like it, a lot more seemed to hate it. Was it a totally unhappy ending? No it wasn’t. Almost everyone got a happy ending. Was it the ending we deserved after 7 years? Hell no! As I said in one of my recent “True Blood” blogs, I hated how Alan Ball ended “Six Feet Under” and worried he’d do it again. Well he did! If you haven’t seen the episode, I’d stop reading now.

So most of the show was actually about Jessica and Hoyt, who decided to get married before Bill met the true death. Seriously, they wasted most of the final show on these two!

Bill was resigned to die and wanted Sookie to fairy ball him, which would make her human and give her the life she wanted too. In the end she couldn’t do that as being fairy is just who she is, she wouldn’t give it up. For that I was happy. However Bill still wanted to die, so she staked him. WTF! Seriously? I had a small hope that Sookie might blast him and somehow he’d become human again. Throughout the episode they teased that possibility. He was becoming “warmer” and Sookie was able to read his thoughts finally. I guess though it was only because he was dying.

Pam and Eric killed Mr. Gus, took over New Blood, and chained Sarah Newmie Newlander up in the basement of Fangtasia where they rented her out to wealthy infected vampires who wanted a full cure. That was her punishment for being the beyotch she was in life. Pam and Eric’s story was at least funny, especially with Sarah asking Pam to turn her so they could be lesbian vamps together and Pam telling her no bleeping way.

The show ended with some fast forwarding. It was several years later and everyone was gathering for Thanksgiving. Jason ended up with Hoyt’s ditched girlfriend and had 3 or 4 kids with her. Lafayette ended up with James. I don’t know if we saw Arlene with her vampire guy or not? Jessica and Hoyt are together still, and Sam came home with his wife and daughter. Adeline was with Wyatt, and of course Andy and Holly. Everyone gathered around the table for dinner. We saw that Sookie was pregnant and had a husband. However we don’t know who he is, as they never told us and we never saw his face. WTF? After all this time and we don’t get full closure or disclosure for Sookie? I guess since she couldn’t be with Bill it wasn’t supposed to matter who she ended up with, just that she ended up happy as Bill wanted. So in the end, it was pretty much about Bill getting what he wanted in a way.

I like my idea that Sookie was able to somehow turn Bill human much better. I think I’ll pretend that is how the show really ended.

Next time Alan Ball decides to make a television show I think I shall skip it and save the hours wasted over its 5-7 year run and watch or do something else.

  1. Yeah, Arlene and Vampire Keith were there.

    I actually liked the ending of Six Feet Under. But Alan Ball left True Blood at the end of season 5.

    So how does Sookie deal with having to listen to her husband’s thoughts all the time? But I suppose it will come in handy when the baby’s crying.

  2. That annoyed me too. For 7 years we’ve had to listen to Sookie whine about how she couldn’t be with a human because she could hear their thoughts and then suddenly she decides she’s ok with that, marries some random dude and has kids? WTF? I was hoping for a Sookie/Eric ending but also started to wonder if she would turn Bill human. Hell, I would have been happy with her being with Sam like in the books. At least I could see that better than this ending.

  3. DNA, from my understanding Ball was still the executive producer, and I believe they followed his wish for how to end the show and the direction of the show. He just wasn’t doing the day to day stuff.

  4. Sooooo hated the final show. Do people really buy that Sookie who looked like someone who took a double dose of Prozac was happy? Kept thinking as the 70 minutes slipped by with too much time devoted to Hoyt, Jessica, and other time wasting conversations, that there would be a big surprise at the end. But there wasn’t- just a depressing end for Bill and Sookie looking anesthetized and smiling at the back of miscellaneous husband’s head.
