True Blood Season 7: Episode 9 – the Ratings Are In!

August 22, 2014

Once More HBO’s True Blood Wins Rating War:

Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) star in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 9 (entitled 'Love is to Die')Last week, we saw HBO’s True Blood pipped at the post by a shark documentary. Not so this week for Episode 9 (entitled Love is to Die)! Once more, True Blood Season 7 has won it’s time slot on the night. It maintained the same amount of viewers in the coveted 18 – 49 age bracket as last week in it’s premiere screening, but overall, viewers grew a little on last week’s performance. You can view the top 5 ratings winners for Sunday night below:

TRUE BLOOD HBOM 9:02 PM 3556 1.8
NASCAR SPRINT CUP       L ESPN 1:00 PM 5150 1.2
KEEPING UP KARDASHIANS ENT 9:00 PM 2433 1.2
FAMILY GUY
ADSM 11:00 PM 2137 1.0
STRAIN FX 10:00 PM 2283 1.0

 

It seems the newest vampire series, The Strain, has slipped somewhat as it still finds its feet. Maybe it’s ratings will improve once True Blood meets the true death?

True Blood Season 7 Spoilers: Goodbyes, Weird Sex & Love Triangles

August 15, 2014

Could an Original Cast Member Die in Episode 9 of HBO’s True Blood ?

Tara Buck stars as Ginger in HBO's True Blood Season 7It seems Episode 9 (entitled Love is to Die) will say a final goodbye to yet another original cast member of HBO’s True Blood! But will they die? It seems the devil is in the fine print of what TVGuide had to say about the upcoming episode recently:

With only two episodes to go, there are a lot of narrative threads to tie up, including the issue of Bill [Compton]’s mortality. I will only say this: At least one original cast member will say goodbye for good this week. In possibly related news, a longstanding love triangle will be resolved and you’ll see one of the show’s weirdest — and funniest — sex scenes between a long-unrequited pair.

How interesting is that news? With the admission of a long term love triangle also being resolved, one could assume that with Bill’s (Stephen Moyer) death, Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) finally chooses Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard).  Consolation prize anyone? However, there is another love triangle going on at the moment – that of Hoyt Fortenberry (Jim Parrack), Jessica Hamby (Deborah Ann Woll) and Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten). Perhaps TVGuide are referring to that triangle instead? Maybe Jess and Hoyt get back together and Jessica decides to move to Alaska to be with him? After all, it doesn’t specifically say the cast member will die.

And what of that sex scene, huh? Who do we know on True Blood that is part of an ‘unrequited pair’? Could it be Sookie and Eric? Probably not, since they have been intimate before. But it sure doesn’t leave many other options. Perhaps Arlene (Carrie Preston) and Keith (Riley Smith)? Especially since TVLine had this spoiler to announce:

Not everyone will get a happy ending on True Blood… but I think it’s safe to say that Arlene and Keith will be among the lucky few. Though we’re not going to get another pool table scene, this Sunday’s episode does show the effect Arlene’s relationship with Keith is having on her. (Spoiler Alert: She’s a very happy woman.)

But they haven’t been an item for very long, and many wouldn’t even really consider them as such. Oh, hang on a minute – what about Ginger (Tara Buck) and Eric? Now that would potentially be hilarious and weird!

VIDEO: True Blood Season 7 Episode 9 (Love is to Die) Sneak Peek #2

August 15, 2014

Arlene Offers Sookie Some Advice:

Anna Paquin stars as Sookie Stackhouse in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 9 (entitled 'Love is to Die') Here’s the penultimate sneak peek #2 clip of HBO’s True Blood ever! In Episode 9 (ominously entitled Love is to Die) of True Blood Season 7, we find Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and Arlene Fowler (Carrie Preston) deep in conversation at Bellefleur’s (formerly known as Merlotte’s) about loss, grief and how to move on. It seems Sookie has admitted that she never fully committed to her relationship with Alcide Herveaux (Joe Manganiello) because of the feelings she still had for vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer).

The question is though, is Sookie and Arlene having this chat because Bill has already succumbed to Hep-V?

Synopsis:

Sookie Stackhouse retreats in confusion. Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) makes a choice. Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) exercises uncharacteristic restraint, while Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) faces a dilemma after being caught in a lie.

Written by Brian Buckner; directed by Howard Deutch.

VIDEO: True Blood Season 7 Episode 9 (Love is to Die) Sneak Peek

August 11, 2014

Bill Remains Resolute in His Decision:

Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) says no in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 9 (entitled 'Love is to Die')Well it appears Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) can be as stubborn as a mule when it comes to deciding when he will die. After refusing to take a sip of Sarah Newlin’s (Anna Camp) restorative blood at the end of Episode 8 (entitled Almost Home), it seems Bill will be sticking to his guns in Episode 9 (entitled Love is to Die) of HBO’s True Blood Season 7.

As for the others still left in Bon Temps, Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten), Jessica Hamby (Deborah Ann Woll), Hoyt Fortenberry (Jim Parrack) and Bridgette all seem to have issues to sort out yet. Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) is seen flying off with what appears to be Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) and Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) is all bound up again.

Will Bill really meet the true death? Let us know what you think will happen in the penultimate episode of True Blood by commenting below!

True Blood Season 7: Episode 9 Synopsis Released

August 5, 2014

Episode #79: “Love Is to Die”:

Anna Paquin stars as Sookie Stackhouse in HBO's True Blood Season 7With only three short episodes left, here’s what we know of the penultimate episode of HBO’s True Blood. Episode 9 is entitled Love is to Die and the synopsis reads:

Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) retreats in confusion. Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) makes a choice. Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) exercises uncharacteristic restraint, while Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) faces a dilemma after being caught in a lie.

Written by Brian Buckner; directed by Howard Deutch.

It seems Sookie may get rejected by someone. Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) perhaps? Finally Sam decides whether to stay in Bon Temps as the Mayor of Crazy or leave with the mother of his unborn child, Nicole (Jurnee Smollett-Bell). Jason seems to be nipping that “just because Hoyt (Jim Parrack) has it, doesn’t mean I should too” trait right in the bud. And, as for Eric getting caught in a lie – your guess is as good as mine as to which lie that might be!
