True Blood Season 2: What Did You Think Of The Season Finale?

September 14, 2009 by  

true-blood-season-finale-8-newLast night we watched the season finale of True Blood and all I can say is it is going to be a very long 9 months until season 3 returns in the summer.  Some storylines were clarified while new ones developed that will having us speculating developing theories as to what we may see for season 3.  What did you think of the finale?  What were your favorite scene and why?  Was it the dance and proposal scene with Bill and Sookie?  Who do you think kidnapped Bill?  What did you think of the whole Maryann scene?

The season finale also brought up a series of questions that may or may not get answered in season 3?  Some the pop into my my mind are: How did the Queen know Sookie is more then human?  Did Bill seem surprised when Sookie stated she didn’t believe she was human as well?  Now that Sam drank alot of Bill blood, what will that do to Sam?  Who kidnapped Bill? Eric, Lorena or maybe someone else?

Please join us in our forum where you can post you comments and join in discussions with fellow True Blood fans to ponder these questions and speculate on season 3.

Please remember keep references to what is happening on True Blood and not what was in the books.  We want to have a discussion about the events that have happened up to now in the series.  Also please be cordial and no bashing of any of the characters, otherwise your comment will be deleted.  We want provide a positive environment where people can express their feelings about the events without feeling the characters will be bashed.

    Loving bill!!! him and sookie should stay together…hopeless roamntic! they have gone thru so much they need to stay together and Eric needs his own human and let sookie be!…true blood true love!

    • antonio

      I Say Let Sookie CHOOSE For HERSELF! Only if some1 is cognisant of Free Will can they make a true choice for themselves! Bill Is her First She must see what else is out there for her. Maybe some1 else could love her More??
      Perhaps Eric? Alcide? Quinn? maybe??
      Besides she needs to grow up!! Bill kowtows to her! She knows better than to try that poutty shit with Eric!!

  • Mrs. Compton

    GOD do I LOVE BILLLL

  • Nia

    Hey Y’all just as an afterthought. I mentioned this in the Sam thread but forgot to say it here.
    Has anyone considered the fact that now that Sam has had alot of Bills blood, Bill will be able to sense Sam!! Interesting angle to play in the future.
    I hope these two become real friends eventually. I know it is probably way off, but they would make great allies.
    They were both my heroes in this finale. Love them both.
    Team Bill and Sam, you rocked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • antonio

      I agree with you 100% Nia! You brought up an interesting point.
      In the book Breaking Dawn,It is made clear that vampire blood is deadly to a shifter/were. Reason being that a shifter/were could Never be converted into a full fledged vampire plus vampires are immortal shifters(unless extraodinarily gifted) are not.
      Because a shifter could never be turned into a vampire,ingesting Any of the blood would not only be pointless but deadly as such creature would succomb to the poison. On the other hand, Wolf venom usually spread by a werewolf bite would prove deadly to a vampire also. That being said, It will be interesting to see what happens with Sam and Bill. Will Bill’s blood make Sam stronger? more aggrsessive? Now that Both He and Sookie have had
      Bill’s blood will he be able to read her mind? keep track of her?? It would be cool to see them become friends. I think the 3 of them are bonded now in a special way.

  • CGal

    I think Eric or the queen kidnapped Bill…considering she was annoyed that he knew she had Eric/LaFayette selling V.

    I was glad the Maenad story line ended…it lasted a little too long for me and I was sick of it.

    I’m gonna miss looking at Eggs…that man is fine!

    • Court

      I thought the Queen did a horrible job-she should be more mysterious and eerie like maryann (even though i totally hated her). Eric, that jealous vamp stole my Bill and I have been destroyed over it. Eric is hot but needs to get off Sookie’s and find his own human…let Sookie & Bill be..damn!!

      • Lizzie 1701

        Totally agree that Eric should get his own human and lay off Bill and Sookie. Honestly, everyone is speculating that Sookie will run into Erics arms, but we have only seen her total hatred of him for the things he has done not only to her, Bill, Lay etc and she knows he tricked her into bullet sucking – why would she run to him? Does not make sense!

        • Court

          I think season 3 is going to based on a love triangle..Sookie, Bill, and Eric!! Even though all we have witnessed is Sookie’s hatred for Eric, his blood being in her will change that; she may not have a choice. I just would like to know WHY WHY WHY Eric is all over Sookie, whats the reason for his obsession with her? Have you read the books, because even though they are a bit different from the show, Eric and Sookie do become involved :-[

      • Cgpunker

        Uncool and super rude.

        • Court

          uncool and super rude about???

          • cgpunker

            “jealous fag”? Uncool.
            Be pro Bill, pro Sam pro anyone you want, but lets leave the crap out of the forum.

          • TruEricFan

            well said cgpunker

      • Hi Court,

        We do appreciate hearing people’s feelings, thoughts and speculations however we want it done in a civil manner and do not allow derogatory names-calling of the actors or characters. I know both sides get very passionate about the show which is great because it is such a fantastic show, we want people to feel safe and comfortable here without feeling that they are going to get bashed or the actors or characters will as well. I have seen so much of it on other sites and I find it very disheartening and a little shocked that site would allow such things to be published. Personally I would not have those comments removed they as unnecessary and unproductive.

        • Mrs. Compton

          wow i apologize, didn’t realize I was offending anyone personally; all in all “Eric” is a fictional character. I promise to refrain from speaking negatively about the characters but I thought this site was for us to speak our mind about the show and give our owb opinions.

          • cgpunker

            I could be wrong, but I don’t believe the issue is just about criticizing a character. I too think you should be able to do so, since as you mention, these people are fictional. Valid, thoughtful criticism/discussion is, in my book, what forums like these are about. But again, that’s my opinion, others may agree.

            I believe, at least in my case, the issue is with the term “jealous fag” and the tone. That’s not valid criticism, that’s inflammatory language.
            Just my $.02

          • Mrs. Compton

            You are correct and I do apologize. I would rather discuss the show and not continue to go back and forth with this argument and whatever you may call it; I am just not a fan of Eric….so a fan of Bill-actually obsessed

  • val

    Not enough Eric!!! HOPE lots more in season #3-I heard he got a GREAT raise,so maybe thats a good sign?!>

  • jOSEPHINA

    a bit disappointed…never read the books so as far as the finale… FIRST OFF not enough Eric! SECOND…not enough Eric …third… ummm not enough Eric Seriously though the best part was :
    Marianne : “it could be our little secret …so what are you”?

    Sookie: “I’m a waitress what the f*ck are you”?

    GOTTA LOVE SOOKIE!
    the queEN IS REALLY RETARDED..SHE GOTZ TO GO

  • Lynn

    Interesting how the Vamp gets the girl instead of the Were, in both stories. I don’t think it was on purpose that both are like that, just an interesting parallel.

    Why do girls like Vamps more than the Weres, anyway? I would love to know why myself, and it appears quite a few others would take a vamp over a shifter.

    • Nia

      Hey Lynn, part of the vamps appeal over shifters or weres may be because vamps are supposedly great lovers(glamouring may have something to do with it also), and are immortal. Otherwise the idea of only being able to be with them at night and the dangers of the sun may be a big turnoff.
      The pros to shifters and weres is that they are warm blooded, and can procreate. I am not sure about their logevity though. The con about them is beware the full moon!!

    • TruEricFan

      I agree it is interesting that the weres always come in second. My feeling from the books is, every vampire did her dirty in one way or another, and the only ones that don’t are the weres, yet she continiously chooses the vampires…I don’t get that, and the one I want her to get with did everything right (at least I would want my man to do what he did if the need arose) and she kicked him to the curb because of it.

      People choosing vampires over weres could be because Vampires started human and stay that way, at least with a human body. Weres turn into animals, and I can totally see how someone can be put off by that. I personally don’t care either way, as long as they don’t go furry at inopportune times.

      (another book series mentioned here) Anita Blake has the best of both worlds with many vampire and were lovers, and she is head over heels in love with 2 weres and 2 vampires.

    • micaela

      to me Vampires have more appeal than shifters and weres because Vampires are supposed to have a long long experience of life as they’re immortal. they are old fashion-mannered and that’s fascinating! weres instead are more connected to animal insticts so more similar to human beings therefore less mysterious and more common…

      • antonio

        This is really cool! I like talking about stuff like this.
        First let explain something There Is a difference between a Werewolf and a Shapeshifter. Something to keep in mind: All werewolves are shapeshifters…Not All shapeshifters are werewolves! The werewolf is a “made” creature meaning someone or were had to turn or make him what he became.Someone infected him with the deadly virus (wolf venom) usually through a bite or scratch. Weres have No choice but to morph when the moon is full.
        They have NO powers other then brute strength..they are like animals.
        Shifters,on the other hand are different. Shifters are NOT Made they ARE Born. They aquired the shapeshifting or phasing skill over time and have learned to perfect it. It is seen as a gift.
        Usually, shifters have other shifters in their family or circle
        and they aquire these skills from them either by instruction or observance. In the Twilight book Eclipse this is all explained.

        • antonio

          Here is something to think about. In the Twilight book New Moon in the film,too i’m sure..Bella gravitates toward Jacob Black partially because they are great friends and they can relax and just relate to one another. When she fell for Edward Cullen~~the bloodsucker~~ it was instantanious like a train wreck she fell hard and was entranced by him. Bella fell for Jacob over a period of time. Her love for him grew slowly as they got to know each other. In NM Jacob says to Bella “I know what he did to you,Bella I would Never hurt you like that!” EC left her just completely left her (if youve read the book you know why)
          Bill “left” Sookie to be reprimanded for killing one of his own kind (where he “made” Jessica) and then when Sookie thought he died.

          • antonio

            Now, Bill left Sookie. What was she to think? she did not know if she would Ever see him again. Sam would be better for her because he would not treat her the way Bill does! Sam is warm-blooded and can procreate or sire offspring..Bill Cannot!!
            She could have a more stable life with Sam as his wife she could become co-owner of the bar and would always have a job and a place to live…Could Bill offer her as Much??!
            Another thing… In Eclipse Edward needs Jacob to keep his beloved Bella warm..they are in a tent in the middle of a forest its winter its very cold and EC Cannot keep her warm!
            Jake~~the shifter~~ can keep her warm with his raised body temperature. He holds her and gets into a sleeping bag with her
            he even kisses her so she can get the warmth of his breath.
            Edward could only standby and watch as he Could Not do this for her!!
            Makes me think…How could Bill be ANY real help to Sookie??
            In Sam’s arms she could be warm and cozy and feel the warmth of his body his heartbeat. What could Bill offer her really? Besides “Soo-keh ah luv ya!”
            Sam is a decent hard-working man who loves her She could do much worse!!

          • Cgpunker

            Why why why are we talking about Twilight? Lol
            Very different cannons. Vampires SPARKLE for Petes sake! 🙂

          • micaela

            between vampires werewolves and shapeshifters I do prefer vampires..well actually a specific vampire: My Bill Compton. and if not available, well..give me Edward Cullen but I prefer a vampire that doesn’t sparkle!LOL

      • antonio

        Well spoken!! I’d agree. Vamps Are immortal and have had centuries to work on refing their romantic style and technique.
        With Weres and Shifters its more about being “In the moment”
        Sort of a now or never thing i guess. This is Not to say that shifters are incapable of deep emotion or desire I believe that They can love just as fiercely,too but Their love is more like mortal love…imperfect and variable. This is Not to say that Sookie could Never be happy with Sam….I believe she could.
        Part of the reason WHY I wanted Bella to choose Jacob over vampire Edward was that she could retain her humanity her mortal nature and still be fiercely and deeply in love at the same time!
        She would not have to sacrifice her mortal life to join him. Since he was a shifter and Not a were there would be No danger of him turning her. It just doesnt make sense!…At SOME point Bill would have to turn Sookie into the monster that he is!!
        He drinks her blood,made her to drink his he feeds off of her
        At some point her blood would have to be contaminated by his vampire venom…Don’t you think?? You might say Bill would Never drain her because it would weaken her and she might die
        What if in an unguarded moment he did? He’d probably hate himself for doing it not to mention Jason would want to kill him!! Or Maybe Just Maybe SS is something More than vampire or shifter! Something to think about.

        • TruEricFan

          I know we aren’t supposed to talk about the books, but it’s explained in one of them (I read too fast to pay attention to which book lol) that if you have too much vamp blood from a vamp (not V juice) you will turn, at least that’s what I got from it…I may have to read the series again just to find it…Plus didn’t Eric say to Bill “you almost overcooked her” after Bill gave her blood after the Maenad attack? I think you’re right that it could possibly happen without him ever trying.

          In Twilight I was all for Edward until New Moon (of course), simply because I like vampires lol. I liked Jacob in the whole series and truly wish she would have chosen him, she had to give up far too much, but on the same page, Jacob won’t age as long as he’s shifting, and Bella will continue. At least with Edward changing her, she has the opportunity to be with a man her physical age forever.

          I definitely think Sookie is more than human. I know what she is in the books, and am interested and excited to see how Alan plays it out.

          • antonio

            I think theres something to that. Remember in 1 of the Twilight books Bella says “Am I the Only one who’s going to grow old and die?!” She was with Jacob at the time I think. Bella considered what her life would be with Jake…She even had a daydream or was it a vision in which she saw herself as his wife with 2 little kids running around. Here’s the thing Edward catches Bella and Jacob making out its awkward but he remains silent
            He realizes that Bella must choose and he respects that. It would hurt him a great deal to lose her But he wants her to be happy even if it means losing her to Jake!
            When Bill caught Sookie kissing Sam He went ballistic! He looked as though he wanted to rip Sam apart! All He would say as in season 2 “Ah-m not sarry fo what you awakened in may” Sookie, Ah luv ya” I guess He is more possesive and controlling than EC.

          • TruEricFan

            I read the Twilight Saga before the Southern Vampire series, and honestly didn’t think you could get more controlling than Edward, but I agree…Bill takes the cake on that one!

    • TruEricFan

      I LOVE vampires, but if I had to choose to be with either a vampire or a were, I would choose the were because they are more human…most Vamps are in their lets say 30’s when they are turned, and don’t age. I don’t want to be 75 years old and appear to be ‘robbing the cradle’ with a man that looks like my grandson. Plus, I would want more children, and I couldn’t get that from a vampire.

      • Nia

        Thats true TruEricFan, The idea of being with someone who doesn’t age is great for a while, but when you hit your 50’s and beyond…..well like you said, robbing the cradle, feeling old and insecure.
        That was probably one of the biggest reasons Sookie was hesitant to say yes to Bill’s proposal. Even though he said it did not matter, and I really believe he meant it (god, so love him for that). True love should be timeless, and I believe that is what he feels for Sookie. Anyways, since we really do not know what Sookie truly is, who’s to say she is not immortal or at least lives longer than a normal human. Time and more (hopefully many more) seasons will tell.

      • antonio

        Vampires are cool. The whole thing about vamps is:
        They are supposedly great lovers
        Insatiable appetites
        impassioned about what they want
        are faithful pretty much …dont cheat unless they are hungry
        “Come with Me and be mine forever” Who can resist a line like that?
        Rest all day…Party all night
        Very seductive the “lifestyle” the lure
        Of course Shifting would be cool too if you could take on the form of mist or fog the form of animals like a deer or rabbit
        Weres though prolly the Least appealing unless you like eating people and running around naked…Come think of it Isnt that What Jason Stackhouse did in season 1?? LOL

        • TruEricFan

          If I was a shifter, I don’t think that I would want to be something that’s hunted…like a deer or rabbit…I would much rather be the hunter, live a long healthy life lol. Deer and Rabbit used to be 2 of the main meats we ate when I was a kid. If I could choose I would choose to be a Tiger, it’s my favorite 4 legged non domesticated animal.

  • antonio

    Yes there are similarities between True Blood and Twilight saga.
    What I meant to say was Jacob Black choosing a family of vampires over his Own tribe was unusual to say the least.
    My point is people do crazy things for love all the time!!
    Just like Bill Compton coming out into the daylight and burning up to try to save Sookie from the serial killer..Incredible!
    And yes, there were others who followed Jake when he defected 2 others Lea Clearwater the Only female of the pack and her younger brother Seth. Lea couldnt stand Bella she was envious of her and I think she wanted Jake for herself. She was indifferent.
    Seth cared some i guess.The fact is Jake chose against his pack/tribe for a girl…one who had already chosen a bloodsucker over him!! Well this was point even in the world of vampires and werewolves Love is still a gamble.

  • Jaxx

    Brittany, I agree. I am willing to try to be more patient and wait it out. Eric is definitely worth the wait. And, yes, I am an Eric fan all the way.

    • antonio

      In my opinion the best person for Sookie would Be Sam…NOT Eric….NOT Bill. Now who would be good for Jason? Any ideas??
      Maybe if Jessica Hamby meets and gets to be with Jason and then bites him like Bill feeds of Sookie maybe That would be cool! huh? Of course, season 3 will be full of werewolves maybe 1 might attack Jason and he might become one…like he needs another excuse to walk around naked?? LOL Perhaps 1 of the weres will win sookies heart??

  • BLF

    I see we are still a passionate bunch here 🙂

    Ive watched the finale a few times now and think they tied down the story linesthe story lines that they needed to… those that should not flow over to the next season.

    Yes,I thought the finale was great. I got my warm fuzzy feelings, I got my cliffhanger. I’ve got y’all to discuss TB with over the hiatus. (though someone had a good idea that HBO should start showing Seasons 1 and 2 until 3 is ready to be aired).

    This was the episode of SAM!!! From him we got most of our emotional punches this finale. Kudos to him!!! Plus we get that classical greek statue type pose from him as soon as Maryann went caput. (anyone else see that?)

    Yes, I was disapointed we did not see more of Eric in the finale… but from the AB interviews yesterday, we know the story arc is not done. To those who have read the books, we need to remember that Eric does not start to emmerge as a main character until Book 3 and is established in Book 4. So i am happy with what I have seen so far.

    As a book reader, i do have a gist of what might happen and it is unfair of us to post about it here on this type of article.

    Ollie, do you think we could have a new article chalenging us to figure out what is going to happen Season 3? I think AB made it pretty clear that they use the books as source material to find what is truely important and should be used in the show. It would be great for the book readers to see if we can pinpoint the same moments as the writers do. It would sort of be like the EW challenge for writing our own Episode, but ours would be pick the moments from the book. i dont know how it would work but it would be fun. hehehe

    • Nia

      Boy, I am glad I am not the only one to have noticed Sam’s classical Greek statue pose. He is beautiful also. We tend not to talk as much about Sam, but he does deserve just as much discussion time.
      Sam did the ultimate sacrifice and may have died. He also put his life into the hands of someone he has been at odds with since the beginning. Great touch to the story. I have always hoped that Bill and Sam would become friends. They seem to be on that path albeit its a shaky path. But its a beginning.
      Season 3 seems so far away!!!!

      • Jaxx

        I have to agree with you here Nia. Sam is great. He’s loved Sookie before any of this vamp stuff happened. I would not be the least bit upset is in the very end, Sam and Sookie end up together. They could grow old together and have a family. How can you argue with that???

        • Nia

          Hi Jaxx, you are right, you really cannot argue with that. Sam and Bill are not much different though, when it comes to loving Sookie. They would both love her fiercely and loyaly. In the scheme of things Sam would be the logical choice. But when has love ever been logical? It will be interesting to see where the seasons eventually lead them all.

          • antonio

            Excuse me for mentioning another franchise here but your comments regarding Bill and Sam sound kind of similar to Twilight. In the TL books, Both Edward Cullen and Jacob Black are fiercely and passionately devoted to Bella Swan…either one would risk his life or un-life in the case of EC to protect her.
            In fact, in Breaking Dawn JB chooses the Cullen family of vampires Over his Own wolfpack of brethren.He is branded a traitor and a coward by the pack and the tribe…but his deep devotion and love for her blinded him..i suppose.
            He sides with the vampires in both Eclipse and Breaking Dawn in the standoff against the Volturi questions?? read the books kind of hard to explain here!…LOL
            The difference between JB and Sam Merlotte is that Jacob is a Were-Shifter meaning he can Only phase into a wolf. Sam is a Shapeshifter meaning he can shift into almost anything has imprinted on. Its obvious that All 4 of these guys love their galpal! LOL I think Sookie would be better off with Sam just like i think Bella would have been better off with Jacob.

          • TruEricFan

            Antonio, you almost sound anti-vampire! True Blood is basically the adult version of Twilight. There’s a lot of similarities, yes, but I don’t know what version of Twilight Saga you read, or if you did read it, because when Jake chose the Cullens over his tribe, he was followed by others that felt killing Bella was wrong, then once he imprinted…anyways, it didn’t happen the way you say, but I won’t go further into it.

            I am a huge fan of the books, and hope Alan keeps true to certain parts of the story, especially where Eric and Jason are concerned. I LOVE Eric, but I REALLY want Sookie to end up with a certain character that hasn’t been introduced into the series as of yet…he’s going to be introduced in season 3, if Alan follows that story line, and I just hope he’s as yummy as described in the books!

    • Nia

      Oh, and by the way, I would love to use that man as a scrunchie too!

    • Hi BLF,

      I think a great place to discuss all the speculations would be in our forum.

      Based on the interviews Alan just recently did he said “I don’t want it to influence what the show is.” Meaning outside influences whether Sookie/Eric fans, Sookie/Bill fans or Stephen and Anna relationship will not effect what the show is about, which if we look back at season 1 interviews is a show based of the fear of intimacy and other themes. I am glad he is following through with his visions of the show and I agree with them and look forward to watching them unfold. Having fun at guessing what parts he will use is fun but remember to keep it fun and not get frustrated because as we have seen the parts may be similar but the characters, actions and/or reasons may be different to maintain with the themes Alan is following. I am enjoying Alan’s adaptation tremendously and I am happy to read that most are enjoying the show and the themes Alan is presenting and not dwelling too much on why it is not the same as the books.

      • Nia

        I am so glad that all the “talk”, or anything else, will not influence Alan’s vision for the show. I have been enjoying all the changes he has made (from the books) and where the show is going. He has made it his own as it should be. I am behind Alan 100% and will continue be do so no matter where he decides to take the story.
        I have always felt it is the best adult entertainment on tv.
