True Blood Quickie: True Blood Season 7 Finale Episode 10 “Thank You” Recap

August 25, 2014

I can’t believe this is it. I can’t believe this is my last ever True Blood recap! Here’s what went down in Episode 10 (entitled Thank You) of HBO’s True Blood Season 7:

  • Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) stars in HBO's True Blood finale Episode 10 (entitled 'Thank You')We start off pretty much where Episode 9 (entitled Love is to Die) ended; at Sookie’s (Anna Paquin). Her and Bill (Stephen Moyer) are having a chat about how Bill wants Sookie to have a life and how Sookie wants Bill to live. Then he drops a clanger on her: he not only wants to die, he wants Sookie to kill him! *starts wimpering* Turns out he has a reason for that. He figures if she uses her super fairy light ball once and for all, she will no longer be an attractant to all the supernaturals out there. Needless to say, Sookie is pissed…
  • Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) and Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) hatch a plan: release Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) and use that as a ploy to lure Mr. Gus (Will Yun Lee) down into the dungeon so they can kill him and his Yazuka security guards. This plan actually works and we can say RIP to Mr. Gus, the bad guy that wasn’t really such a bad guy, just an annoying one. Sarah is really on the loose too, but that’s okay because Pam has given her some vampire blood and can track her like a bloodhound. Once that happens, Sarah does the only thing she knows how; try and talk her way out of the situation. Sarah tries to convince Pam to turn her into a vampire – to which Pam refuses, but more on that later…
  • Oh, and the Yakuza on the way to Sookie’s house? Don’t worry about them because Eric totally has a handle on it! *cue Eric jigging away to J-Pop in the car*
  • Jessica and Hoyt get married in HBO's True Bloof finale Episode 10 (entitled 'Thank You')So Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) and Hoyt (Jim Parrack) turn up to talk to Bill, but the table is turned when Bill goes all parental on Jess and insists Hoyt makes an honest woman of her. To which Hoyt agrees and we have an epic vampire wedding organized at vamp speed so Bill can walk Jess down the aisle. *This is the first time I really start bawling*
  • Andy Bellefleur (Chris Bauer) is called in to officiate the wedding and Bill drops a bombshell on him: he is now the heir apparent to Bill’s estate. Andy doesn’t want it, but that’s okay because Bill wants Andy to rent it to Jess and Hoyt. For $1 dollar a month. Man, where can I get a landlord like that?!
  • Sookie has her own flashbacks in Episode 10. This time we get to see Sookie and Tara (Rutina Wesley) as kids. They’re all running in the rain and getting dried off by Gran (Lois Smith). Yes, Gran’s back! And she’s still giving out sound advice by telling Sookie that the only boundaries she has is the ones she sets upon herself.
  • Sookie goes looking to her brother, Jason (Ryan Kwanten) for some advice as to what to do about the kill Bill situation. Turns out Jason is just as surprised as the rest of us that his advice might be useful. But Sookie reads Bridgette’s (Ashley Hinshaw) mind while she’s there and lets Jason know that she is totally okay about him and Bridgette hooking up. Of course, Jason had no idea because he equates not having sex with ‘she doesn’t like me‘.
  • Speaking of Jason, he and Hoyt work things out and he is Hoyt’s best man at his wedding.
  • So, we are at this vampire wedding and Sookie is suddenly able to hear Bill’s thoughts. WTH?! Is Bill turning human? Is that how his Hep-V works now?
  • Sookie is still having a hard time working out whether to kill Bill or not, so she goes to see Reverend Daniels (Gregg Daniel) about it. He has as much good advice to give as Gran did, so Sookie is starting to come to a realization…
  • Sookie sitting on Bills coffin in the HBO True Blood finale Episode 10 (entitled 'Thank You')…that the True Blood finale is going to be all about a wedding and then a funeral. Sookie meets Bill at the cemetery where is grave is open and ready for him. There is much talking going backwards and forwards between these two and I am howling at the TV right now because I am coming to realize Sookie is not going to kill Bill with her fairy light, she is going to stake him instead! At least Bill is okay with that, because I am so not okay with it, and I’m not even Team Bill! And there we have it, Sookie in a coffin filled to the brim with Bill gloop and I am rocking and crying and eating Gran’s pecan pie with my bare hands. Guess that ‘maybe Bill is turning into a human‘ idea is completely moot now.
  • Fast forward to a year later. Wait, what? I’m still grieving over here! But HBO has a show to wrap up and they don’t have time for that crap. It seems Eric and Pam are shooting an infomercial about their new product: New Blood. They have a great little story about how Sarah got away, all except for a few stray drops of her blood from which they were able to synthesize a cure. Nice lying there Northman 😉
  • Oh, wait, is that Charlaine Harris? Why, yes it is!
  • Now it’s three years later and Pam is looking suspiciously like Sarah Newlin as they float their product on the stock exchange.
  • Oh, look, it’s Fangtasia. Pam is in the dungeon letting vampires take their New Blood straight from the source. Yep, Sarah Newlin actually survived the True Blood finale! But she’s now the antidote whore Pam promised in Episode 9. We also get another cameo appearance from Steve Newlin (Michael McMillian) here because Sarah is now officially crazy.
  • Next it’s Thanksgiving and some random guy is deep frying a turkey at Sookie’s house. Seems there is a big gathering going on. Oh look, there Jason and Bridgette and their three kids. And, wow, Sookie’s pregnant too! Wonder who the lucky guy is? Now they are all sitting down to dinner and there’s Sam (Sam Trammell) and Nicole (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) with their second child. Hoyt and Jess still look happy, and so do Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) and James (Nathan Parsons). In fact, everyone in Bon Temps does. But who the heck is Sookie with? Then she leans over and kisses a guy with a beard. AND WE DON’T EVEN GET TO SEE HIS FACE.
  • Oh, I get it, Sookie chooses to be human and that’s more important than which guy she ends up with. And I am crying all over again because Sookie is happy.

Even Stephen Moyer Was Surprised Bill Said No to a Hep-V Cure!

August 24, 2014

Will Bill Die in the True Blood Season 7 Finale?

Stephen Moyer stars as Bill Compton, the latest Hep-V victim, from HBO's True Blood Season 7In Episode 9 (entitled Love is to Die) of HBO’s True Blood, many fans were shocked to discover that even though Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) had been doing her very best to find a cure for Bill Compton’s (Stephen Moyer) accelerated dose of Hep-V, he said no when the antidote was finally found inside the blood of Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp). It turns out even Stephen Moyer was a bit confused as to Bill’s decision:

I had a slight issue with it, because I couldn’t understand why he would go to the storeroom to Fangtasia and then say no. Ultimately, he goes because he wants to do right by Sookie. His decision to not turn around then and there is his going along with what Sookie has tried to make happen, and it’s really only when he’s right there that he thinks, ‘no.’

But where will this leave Bill leading into the final episode of HBO’s True Blood ever? Will Bill finally meet the true death? Stephen has this to say about Episode 10 (entitled Thank You):

At the end of [episode] nine, he has called Sookie and had the conversation with Eric, Eric’s gone back, and he knows that he’s going to talk to her. He’s going to see her, because she deserves it and is owed it, to know what’s been going on for him and why he is doing what he’s doing. We sort of enter into the episode right there.

Right, so that’s as clear as mud now! However, there is also this last piecel of information:

One of the things that Anna and I said — we had a dinner with Bucky [showrunner Brian Buckner] a year ago, before we had started filming, when they were just conceiving of this year, and quite frankly sat down with him and said, “We do not need in any way need you guys to try to tie up the Bill-Sookie love knot. If you don’t feel like that’s part of the show, we absolutely don’t need for it to be that.” I had said, “If you want that, we both do. If you see the show as Alcide [Joe Manganiello] and Sookie, that would be totally cool by us. If you see it as Eric [Alexander Skarsgard] and Sookie, that would be absolutely cool.” I certainly didn’t want to play an obvious part. One of the things we’ve been good at is surprising the audience, not always giving them what they want or expect. So for me, it’s been interesting to sort of find that character again. He’s been so many things. I think he’s had the most difficult arc in many respects, trying to find that sustenance and feeling.

Well, your guess is now as good as mine as to where the end of True Blood is headed in the final hour. Let us know your theories by commenting below!

True Blood Quickie: True Blood Season 7 Episode 9 “Love is to Die” Recap

August 18, 2014

It’s only a short recap this week as so much was wound up. But here’s what went down in Episode 9 (entitled Love is to Die) of HBO’s True Blood Season 7:

  •  Jessica Hamby (Deborah Ann Woll) gets released in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 9 (entitled 'Love is to Die')Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) really does choose to die, it’s not just a cliffhanger. As a result both Jessica Hamby (Deborah Ann Woll) and Sookie Stachouse (Anna Paquin) are PISSED. Jess to the point that she asks to be released from Bill. Sookie to the point of slapping him silly until Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) intervenes.
  • Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) has made his decision and decided to follow the mother of his child to Chicago.
  • Jessica and James (Nathan Parsons) sort out their differences and that story line is done and dusted.
  • Hoyt Fortenberry (Jim Parrack) and Bridgette (Ashley Hinshaw) work out they just aren’t right for each other. As a result of this, Jess and Hoyt finally get their thing on after Jessica admits they used to be involved and it seems they are back together again.
  • Poor Bridgette finds consolation in the arms of Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) – and not even in a sexual way. For the first time in Jason’s adult life he lies next to woman in bed and it stays G rated. I smell a blossoming romance here!
  • Bill and Eric have words. Bill explains why he is refusing to be healed. He thinks he is bad news for Sookie, and there is probably a little of his old time religion and beliefs mixed in as well tainting his decision to meet hte true death. Eric argues with him about how Hep-V can turn you into an emo, but, in the end, Eric agrees to talk to Sookie on Bill’s behalf.
  • For some reason the Yakuza have decided Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) should be a blond again – and who else should be her hairdresser but Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten)? It seems vampires will play a higher price for blond antidote hookers…
  • Eric talks to Sookie about Bill and calms her down enough for her to take Bill’s call. On the way to meeting with Sookie he stops at his grave stone, which kind of scares me after watching the promo video for the Season 7 finale.
  • Remember how we speculated over who will be having weird and hilarious sex in Episode 10? Well, it turns out we were right! Ginger (Tara Buck) and Eric get frisky in that throne Ginger bought all those years ago.
  • Mr. Gus (Will Yun Lee), in the meantime, has returned from his trip to Dallas and now has Pam held hostage in the Fangtasia dungeon. She is hooked up to a horrible torture device and every time Eric refuses to answer, a rope is chopped and a wooden stake drops lower and lower… Thankfully Eric finally caves and tells the truth about Sookie knowing about Sarah being the Hep-V antidote. Now they want to know where she lives. Uh-oh
  • Bill finally arrives at Sookie’s house <insert credits here> WHAT?!?! NO!! Now we have to wait until next week to find out how True Blood will meet it’s true end!

Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) star in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 9 (entitled 'Love is to Die')

*Just on a side note: did anyone else notice that Jessica is wearing what appears to be the same black dress that Sookie has on in the promo for the True Blood finale? Wonder what that all means?

VIDEO: True Blood Season 7 Finale Episode 10 (Thank You) Sneak Peek

August 17, 2014

 Sookie Stackhouse Deserves the World According to Bill Compton:

Anna Paquin stars as Sookie Stackhouse in HBO's True Blood Season 7 finale, Episode 10 (entitled 'Thank You')But what if all Sookie (Anna Paquin) wants right now is to see Bill (Stephen Moyer) live? This is the very question asked by Sookie in the opening of sequence of the sneak peek trailer release of HBO’s True Blood Season 7 finale.

Besides the pressing issue of Bill surviving Hep-V or not, we also get plenty of other juicy tidbits:

  • It seems Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) has escaped yet again.
  • Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) and Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) still have a battle to fight regarding Mr. Gus (Will Yun Lee).
  • Speaking of Pam, whose neck is she feeding from? The person is wearing something blue, but that is the only hint as to the identity – wait, wasn’t Sarah wearing something blue earlier on in the clip?

It seems True Blood is nearly ready to meet the #TrueEnd. *cries bloody tears* Let us know your thoughts leading into the final week of True Blood Season 7 by commenting below!

True Blood Season 7 Finale: Episode 10 Synopsis Revealed!

August 13, 2014

Who Makes it to Episode 10 (entitled Thank You)?

One Last Bite True Blood Season 7 promo posterWith only two more episodes left of HBO’s True Blood, fans are starting to worry at how all the loose ends will be tied up. Who will die? Who will live happily ever after? Who will Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) finally chose?

Well, we have the press release for the True Blood Season 7 finale! Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) makes it to at least the start of the episode, but it seems he is still suffering from his virulent dose of Hep-V – will he take the antidote or meet the true death? Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) makes a choice – hang on a minute didn’t he already do that in Episode 9? How many choices does Sam have to make? Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) and Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) also make it to Episode 10 (entitled Thank You) of True Blood. It seems they are not entirely comfortable with their relationship with Mr. Gus (Will Yun Lee) though – could one of these three die? And, finally, we come to an interesting little titbit: Andy Bellefleur (Chris Bauer) gets an unexpected inheritance. This one disturbs me, after all it wasn’t that long ago that Bill was seeking legal advice about his will. Could Andy be the benefactor of Bill’s estate? And, if that is the case, does Bill die?

True Blood Season 7: Is Eric Northman Really Dead?

August 19, 2013

Naked Eric and His Possible Demise is the Talk of the Internet:

Alexander Skarsgard stars as Eric Northman in HBO's True Blood Season 6

Well, HBO’s True Blood Season 6 has sure been a hell of a ride for trubie fans – none other more than the finale, Episode 10 (entitled Radioactive).

So a whole day has passed since we saw that magnificent moment: Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) sunbathing in the snow while reading a book.

It was such a beautiful moment. Team Eric fans around the world squealed in delight.

And then:

 

Alexander Skarsgard stars as Eric Northman in HBO's True Blood Season 6

Oh no! The horror! Team Eric fans are now screaming in fear as Eric Northman starts to fry. While we are all thinking, ‘oh, surely he’ll run for cover‘, HE BURSTS INTO FLAMES!

Fans around the world went into shock. Most were numb during the rest of the show. But is Eric Northman really dead? Here are the pros and cons:

Pros

  • While Eric Northman caught on fire, we didn’t actually see him end up a pile of ashes. He didn’t explode either
  • Wasn’t Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) looking for her maker? Could she jump in and save him in the knick of time? Would she sacrifice her own life for his in the process?
  • He’s in the snow, so I have three words for you: Stop. Drop. Roll
  • Snow melts when heated, could Eric Northman fall through into an underground ice cavern?
  • Eric could use his super vampire speed to either run to a cave or dig a hole in the snow and bury himself
  • Rumor has it that Alexander Skarsgard (along with some other cast members) are contracted on for seven seasons (this is pure speculation though and has not been confirmed by HBO or its subsiduaries)
  • Russell Edgington (Denis O’Hare) successfully survived bad sunburn

Cons

  • Alexander Skarsgard has a hectic movie schedule at the moment – does he have time for True Blood any more?
  • He was standing there burning for such a large amount of time – how long is too long when you’re a vampire on fire?
  • There’s that infamous AOL Entertainment video interview with Kristin Bauer van Straten that had her choking up over having to even think about True Blood without Eric Northman
  • HBO have proven that they will certainly kill off important cast members if it is called for – can anyone remember the red wedding from Game of Thrones this year?

So, what do you think? Will Eric Northman die? Or will we see him alive and well in HBO’s True Blood Season 7? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
