YES it is here. I have been waiting a long time to find out Eric's fate. Eric and Pam, I adore them both and they kept me watching through all the werepanthers and orgies and other unsexy crap that we had in some seasons of TB. Always there were still great character moments. I watched the season 6 finale to prepare, had forgotten just about everything but Eric in the snow. I'll spoiler tag it just in case.. Spoiler: EPISODE 1, season 7 NOOOOooo only 6 episodes in this final season and no Eric yet!! I appreciate Pam on her search for him, heck I would like a whole episode of just Pam, searching. But I would also like 6 episodes with Eric in them. Some lackluster bits but really, same True Blood pace with long waffling heart to hearts in the middle of all the blood and terror Does anyone know the significance of the map Pam is given to point the way to Eric? Is it where he comes from? We didn't see Tara die and I'm wondering if it happened for sure. I am betting Lafayette steals Jessica's hot boyfriend (who is played by a different actor it seems). Car sex: not as hot as the endless carpet care scene but I'm old fashioned. It seems like you should maybe not want to car sex your vampire girlfriend five minutes after your lifelong friend is killed.
