Under the sneak peek video, we have some new release promo stills from Episode 10 (entitled Thank You) of True Blood Season 7.

Also, don’t forget to place your bids on your fave True Blood props and costumes in the ScreenBid auction that is running right now. Currently, Eric Northman’s (Alexanderskarsgard) throne has reached $7,700 dollars, but if that is out of your budget, there are still plenty of items priced around the $100 mark.

Finally, don’t forget that you can’t have a True Blood finale without some of Gran’s home-baked cooking! Why not whip up Adele Stackhouse’s (Lois Smith) famous pecan pie that Sookie sobbed over in Season 1? You can find the recipe by clicking here.

Synopsis (revised slightly from the one displayed in previous articles):

Sookie Stackhouse weighs a future with and without Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer). Eric Northman and Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) embark on a new enterprise, while Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) faces the consequences of her actions.

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 Gets Beaten by a Shark:

Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) and Mr Gus (Will Yun Lee) star in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 8 (entitled 'Almost Home')It seems True Blood’s vampires were taken out by a shark in the ratings war this week.

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?

Let us know your thoughts by commenting below!

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.

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 Writer Kate Barnow Discusses Episode 8

August 12, 2014

Why Bill Said No and Why Sookie Can’t Help Getting in Trouble:

Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) talk in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 8 (entitled 'Almost Home')Many fans were happy to see Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) get back together at the end of Episode 7 of HBO’s True Blood. Many were not. But, regardless of which team you were vying for, seeing Bill dying and Sookie being devastated about it, is not easy to watch. Hearing Bill say he wanted to die when offered the antidote to his terminal case of Hep-V was even worse. For HBO writer, Kate Barnow, she just hoped that people hadn’t guessed this already with the amount of Bill flashbacks this season:

Truthfully, we were a little concerned that maybe with all the flashbacks that people would guess this was where he was heading, that he was heading into this very fatalistic place. I think Bill has always been at conflict with himself as a vampire, and the thing that has kept him going has been Sookie. But I think that he’s feeling fairly resolute at this point that his time is nigh. That’s certainly what episodes 9 and 10 are gonna explore. Who’s to say if his time really is nigh? The moment where he decides he doesn’t want the blood is largely connected to the dream he’s had where Sookie’s holding the baby void. All of those flashbacks, that dream—everything’s adding up to this should be the end. That’s why he decides it, but all hell is about to break loose. People are not gonna be happy with his decision.

Sookie has risked so much to help heal Bill, having had a run in with the Yakuza and then having to be fake glamoured by Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) were just for starters in this episode, but over the whole season, she has been risking life and limb to fix him. Kate discusses how they wanted Sookie to be more active in this season:

The idea was that Eric would feel kinda at a new place emotionally, which is that he has, to some extent, acknowledged that he has compassion for Sookie, even though she’s a human being. So with this new lease on life, for him to say, “I really want to reassure you that I’m not gonna die”—his whole plan is completely stymied when he gets there. He went with one thing in mind and learns something completely different. And then it’s this conflict of the enterprising Eric up against the romantic Eric. He’s like, motherf–ker, this keeps happening to me: Every time I let my guard down and care for Sookie, it gets in the way. But for Sookie, of course, she’s desperate, and there’s no way that she’s not gonna go after Eric when she finds out there’s a cure. She was just a little bit behind him because he can fly, which, you know, is an advantage. What is truly fun is watching Sookie see the Yakuza standing outside of Fangtasia and just being like, “Okay, I’m doing this anyway.” It feels new, but it’s kinda the same old thing: Sookie’s pursuit of trying to get what she wants, and usually it has something to do with Bill, is gonna mess Eric and Pam up in a big way.

You can read more on what Kate Barnow has to say about the love quadrangle developing between Hoyt (Jim Parrack), Bridgette (Ashley Hinshaw), Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) and Jason (Ryan Kwanten) as well as what it was like researching items for Violet’s (Karolina Wydra) sex dungeon and plenty more regarding Episode 8 of True Blood Season 7 by clicking here.

True Blood Quickie: True Blood Season 7 Episode 8 “Almost Home” Recap

August 11, 2014

Here’s what went down in Episode 8 (entitled Almost Home) of HBO’s True Blood Season 7:

  • Karolina Wydra stars as Violet in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 8 (entitled 'Almost Home')Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) really does decide to be a martyr and walks outside to meet her destiny. Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) nearly does the wrong thing by wanting to rip her head off but luckily Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) is there to threaten him talk some sense into him and danger is averted. Eric does sup on Sarah’s blood though and is instantly healed of Hep-V.
  • Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) are curled up in bed enjoying the afterglow when Sookie decides it would be a good time to dredge up the past. It seems Bill was meant to bring Sookie back to Queen Sophie Ann (Evan Rachel Wood) as a breeder, since the queen had gotten wind of another queen’s (Queen Mab of the fairies) plan to abscond all the fae out of the human world.
  • Tara Thornton’s (Rutina Wesley) story line gets wound up. It turns out all that digging in the garden of the their old house was to draw attention to the fact that Lettie Mae (Adina Porter) needed to forgive herself so the pair of them could move on – Lettie Mae, in life, and Tara, in death. *cries into her tissues at all the loose ends being wound up*
  • Hoyt Fortenberry (Jim Parrack) and Bridgette (Ashley Hinshaw) discover they may not be as perfect for each other as they first thought. It seems Hoyt realizes his family is messed up enough not to want to pass on the family genes. As a result, when Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) gets the text from Violet (Karolina Wydra) saying she is holding Jessica Hamby (Deborah Ann Woll) hostage and takes off, Bridgette joins him. Because of course you would go into extreme danger rather than have a fight with your boyfriend…
  • So Jason gives her a gun and heads into Violet’s freaky house of hell. It doesn’t take long for Violet to attack him, tie him up and describe exactly how she plans to kill every one – and it turns out she was weirder than anyone even thought! Luckily Hoyt followed them there though so he can shoot Violet dead and save the day. Oh, and look at all the glances between him and Jess. It seems glamour can’t put the fire out on their attraction. Seems Bridgette can spot it a mile off too. My prediction is Jess and Hoyt will get back together (especially after the little chat Jason and Jess have in the car later in this episode) and Jason will hook up with Bridgette.
  • While Sarah’s blood has healed Eric, it seems Mr. Gus (Will Yun Lee) is hesitant to release it directly to the general vampire public yet. It seems her blood does too good a job, he wants to dilute it down a bit first, so that vampires will have to purchase more than one bottle of Nu Blood in order to stay alive.
  • Eric arrives at Bill’s (how did he know she was there and not at her house?) and tells her about his lack of a Hep-V status. Sookie breaks the news that Bill is now sick. Eric is sworn to secrecy over the cure though and asks Sookie to sit tight and wait. Of course, this doesn’t happen *rolls eyes* and Sookie tracks down Eric at Fangtasia. As soon as she arrives she works out she’s in huge danger from Mr. Gus and the Yakuza so when Eric offers to glamour her, she fakes it with the best of them. In the process she reads Mr. Gus’s mind and ends up finding Sarah bound and gagged in the dungeon of Fangtasia. Boy is she excited once she reads Sarah’s mind and realizes Bill can be healed!
  • Hoyt goes to Bill’s during the day because he has the hots for Jessica all over again to drop off a bag of blood and him and Jess have a bit of a chat about the loss of parents.
  • Okay, just on a side note. There seems to be a lot of vampires awake during the day time in this episode. Remember when they could barely be woken in earlier seasons? Yeah, me too…
  • Mr. Gus has to return to Dallas but lets Eric and Pam know they should behave while his gone – yeah, he doesn’t trust them one little bit! And so he shouldn’t, because as soon as he’s gone they are fixing to cure Bill.
  • Speaking of Bill, he is having a dream about him and Sookie having a baby together – except this baby is a black smoke monster. Is Sookie pregnant with a baby Ifrit? But, anyway, Sookie wakes Bill from his nightmare and tells him the good news before dragging him back to Fangtasia’s and bumping into Eric and Pam.
  • In all the time it takes to get Bill to Fangtasia, he waits until then to tell them all it is his time to die and refuses to drink Sarah’s blood – WTH?!

Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) says no in HBO's True Blood Season 7 Episode 9 (entitled 'Love is to Die')
