Re: True Blood SEASON 7

I totally agree with both of your posts.

I wouldn't be surprised if they wrapped up Sam's story in an anticlimactic manner, look what they did to Tara. Yeeesh. She deserved so much better. I am glad to see Jessica and Hoyt back together as well.

So. More Eric and Pam next week. Less Sookie, and the true death for Bill. Anyone with me?

Re: True Blood SEASON 7

It is really disappointing how they've treated Sam this entire season. At one point he was probably the most interesting character on the show, then they flushed him down the toilet for reasons I can't even begin to comprehend.

Of course, they did that with several of the other characters, too. So I guess it shouldn't be that shocking. Though it still is.

My guess is that Bill is going to be cured of vampirism altogether (the Hep-V symptoms being a red-herring as the virus-mutated faerie blood does its magic), so he and Sookie can have their "happy ending." Which I'll hate with a seething passion no matter how it happens. God, I wish those two had died early on in the show.

I also have a feeling that Eric is going to go out in a blaze of glory, sacrificing himself not only for Pam, but to make sure the real cure for Hep-V gets out to the world. Fuck the Yaks. Well, fuck the True Blood Yaks, cause calling those characters Yakuza is an insult, criminals or not.

Re: True Blood SEASON 7

Jessica and Hoyt has been the highlight of the season. I always thought that was the best romance on TV. That whole Jason/Jessica/Hoyt crap never was any good in my opinion. This has been a pretty good season overall except for the Tara stuff and the entire episode they wasted at that party.

Re: True Blood SEASON 7

Of course Eric can't die because already almost died him as the season 6 finale when he burned up in the snow and you wouldn't almost do that and then one season later do it because that would be lame.

..

OH GOD ERIC IS GOING TO DIE

I'm anticipating domestic bliss for Pam and Eric. And everyone.

Re: True Blood SEASON 7

I bet we get a call about Sam's baby being born which magically bookends a glimpse into the future when the super-cured Bill and Sookie are gazing into the bundle of non-void joy they have just brought into the world.

Re: True Blood SEASON 7

Argh! My eyes! How do I un-see the horrors you have all described?

Oh well. I knew this would happen. I will cherish old episodes of the show (Hubby still (mis)quotes the episode where Pam and Eric end up with Arlene's kids. Whenever he sees cute little siblings he'll say "Teacup humans. They look delicious").

I can pretend this season didn't really happen. I did this with Dexter. In my mind it finished with the season 4 finale, cementing its place in my memory as a great show.

True Blood can exist for mr in the same fashion.

Still (unrealistically) hoping for the true death for Bill and much less Sookie.

Re: True Blood SEASON 7

Every time Eric and Pam stand in a room for more than ten seconds while no more than five completely human watered-down Fast & Furious Yakuza intimidate them into submission, I flip the TV the bird in disgust. Fully powered Eric should be able to run them all through in a second before they can even react. And when did Pam become completely useless? Every time the camera cuts away for a minute she seems to be captured and in peril from these guys.

Oh, and remember how they made a point of showing how the one Yakuza henchman spoke English with Sookie in the previous episode but now has completely forgotten that he speaks English with Pam in the very next episode? Yeah.

I give this a 95% chance of happening. I don't think Eric will die, however, but I do think he'll "disappear" and his fate will be left untold. In the spirit of gag-me endings, perhaps he'll say something like "I will watch over and protect you, Bill and Sookie." Ugh.

Then again, maybe Alan Ball will just redo his Six Feet Under ending with a montage showing all the characters meeting the True Death over the course of centuries.... the last one being either Sam's or Sookie/Bill's son/daughter.

That would be okay especially if Eric still being Eric in what was notably hundreds of years into our future

Re: True Blood SEASON 7

Eric and Pam move to a remote, uninhabited planet far from Earth where they live an idyllic existence-- until Captain Kirk happens by, and then they are doomed.
