Tru Blood cocktails ready: Check.

Gran’s Pie and a box of tissues: Check.

You are now officially ready for HBO’s Season 5 finale! So what went down?

Well, for starters, Russell Edgington went all sparkly thanks to his high consumption of fairy blood and the fact that the entire fae army were hitting him with every available microwave finger they could find! Luckily, before he could get into fairyland, Eric Northman showed up and ‘helped’ him find his true death. Nora also arrived and, surprisingly, had never smelled a fairy before. It got a bit fangy for a moment but Eric takes control and brings about order. (And was that an attempt at wooing Sookie?)

Jason seems to be ‘off with the fairies’ after being hit accidently by their light in the last episode. He is now seeing and speaking to his dead parents and they want all the vampires dead! Throughout the whole episode, they appear, giving their crackpot advice. Will Jason go back to the way he was when he joined the Fellowship of the Sun?

Sam is taken to Bill as a food parcel. He promises to never tell a soul about what he has witnessed in Authority HQ for Emma’s safe return. Bill doesn’t believe him and once Sam realises this, escapes by turning into a fly. Boy is Bill angry after that. The hunt is on!

Eric and Nora return to Fangtasia only to find Pam has been arrested by the Authority. Eric, Tara and Nora arrive at Sookie’s manage to convince her and Jason to join them in their attempt to free Pam, Bill and Jessica.

After admitting to Salome that he killed Kibwe for thinking he was the one true leader, Bill also claims Lilith had appeared to him. It gets a bit awkward here, since Salome had also had the same vision, but Bill tells her that Lilith announced to him that Salome was the one true leader. I think Bill has a plan. Maybe he isn’t as bad as we’ve been led to believe this season.

Sam returns to Luna, who is trapped in a cell with the other bloodbags at Authority HQ. He tries to convince her to escape at the first sign of trouble. Luna can see her daughter in the next cell and refuses to leave. Sam tries hard to convince her otherwise, but only time will tell if Sam got through to her. Sam shifts back into a fly and disappears. He must have a plan also.

Jessica and Pam are stuck in a cell. Jess is convinced that Eric has turned to the Sanguinista way of life. Pam just wishes she didn’t have to keep hearing about precious Sookie.

Alcide and his father are bonding when Martha arrives with an extremely high Rikki. It seems she’s been forcefed V by JD. Martha is concerned Rikki may overdose, but it turns out Jackson has a remedy for that. The side effect, though, is that as the V leeches from your body, it’s not at all pretty. While she’s sweating blood, she shares a few horrible details about JD and what he’s doing to the pack. Alcide gets mad and vows to fight him – even if he has to take V to make it an even fight!

Jason and Sookie (loaded up with a trunk full of coffins filled with vampires), break into an anti-vamp store and start loading themselves up with equipment. Their parents keep appearing to Jason, who is starting to work himself up into quite a fevour as a result. I sure hope Jason doesn’t get too hot-headed around our fave vamps!

Lafayette is making Cajun margaritas and getting Arlene and Holly tipsy. Jane Bodehouse doesn’t need them, since she is so well past drunk, it’s surprising she can perch on her bar stool. Lucky, since when Andy and his pregnant fairy arrive, she doesn’t even bat an eyelid when Maurella goes into labour – or drinks a large amount of salt. The fairy-labour scene is awkward – to say the least. Not only does Andy have to confess his sins to Holly, but she then proceeds to act as midwife to Maurella. Just when you think it can’t get any weirder, it appears fairy birth is like an orgasm mixed with fireworks!

Reverend Steve Newlin arrives and takes Emma out of her cage. Is that really him or is it a shifter? As Steve is leaving Authority HQ, he gets interupted by Chelsea, the Authority receptionist. She notices his lack of a southern accent. Steve tries hard to deflect her questions, but he finds even more trouble awaiting him when he has to give a blood sample at the elevator: not to mention the fact that headquarters are in lockdown! It’s not Steve, that’s for sure – but who is it really? This dilemma is moot once Rosalyn arrives – she is furious with Newlin for his little drinking party at the frat house. Thankfully, damage control includes having to follow her out of the building!

It turns out Maurella is giving birth to more than one child. After the first girl (minus an umbilical cord) arrives, she promptly goes back into labour and we are forced to watch her orgasmic lightshow again. Four children later, Maurella appears to be done. She promptly gets up and announces her departure. It ‘s apparently the man’s job to raise children in fairyland. How’s Andy going to cope with four children? How will Holly cope?

Alcide takes on JD and wins – with the help of Martha, her crossbow and a dose of V. I wonder who’s blood is stronger than the blood of Russell which JD had consumed? It seems Alcide is now officially pack master!

Eric and Nora returns to Authority HQ with three hostages: Tara (pretending to be a mainstreaming spy) , Sookie and Jason (human beverages). And after a quick chat with secuirty, they’re back in the Sanguinista nest – as simple as that!

Steve Newlin is put in the spotlight on national television and made to apologise for his and Russell’s actions in the frat house. Only a few sentences into his TV appearance and he starts to get sick. After vomiting, he shifts: into Luna! She promptly (on live television), starts telling America about what is really going on in the Authority headquarters. This makes Rosalyn madder than a cut snake! She rushes at Luna, but swallows a fly in the process. That fly is Sam, who quickly shifts back into his human form, making Rosalyn’s death a literal explosion! Sam turns around just in time to see Luna faint. Is she going to make it?

Bill watches Salome via security cameras as she approaches Lilith’s blood. It will be interesting to see what happens when she drinks it.

Salome in the Season 5 finale of HBO's True BloodHowever, we are interupted from finding out as the scene shifts to Jason, Sookie and the rest of the crew getting ready to kill some vampires as they ride up in the Authority elevator. Chelsea is horrified, briefly, as the doors open and Jason sends her to her final death. A security alarm sounds. That doesn’t stop Jason though. Authority reception quickly turns a vivid shade of red as he takes out vampire after security vampire. Level two protocol is enforced and all the lights go out. Tara leads the way for Sookie. Eric and Nora lay in wait and take out more security. The body count is enormous.

Tara and Sookie find Pam, but they need to wait for Nora and Eric to open the cells. It takes time (Jason manages to take out another vampire while he’s waiting), but soon they are free. Tara and Pam throw themselves at each other – can anyone say ‘Hot new romance for Season 6‘?

Bill and Salome seem oblivious to what is going on around them as they discuss what Lilith wants. Eventually Salome downs Lilith’s blood and it seems we will discover what effect that will have on her.

Except, we are now taken back to Sookie and the gang. Jason has made up his mind about Jessica – it seems he can no longer stomach the undead. Eric and Nora meet up with them. Eric and Sookie decide to rescue Bill, and the rest escape Authority headquarters.

Ah, now we find out what has happened to Salome. It seems she is weakened by it and Bill is taking great pleasure in telling her about all the silver he put in Lilith’s blood. Apparently Salome was too excited about the upcoming rapture to notice it. Bill then goes on to stake Salome – is that a vial of blood he has? Oh my goodness, is he going to drink Lilith’s blood himself now?

Eric and Sooke arrive and try to convince him not to drink the blood. It seems Bill truly has travelled to the dark side and says some completely horrible things to Sookie. Eric appears to be in complete shock. Bill rants about how he finally feels like he is no longer an abommination AND DRINKS LILITH’S BLOOD!

***If you haven’t yet seen the final episode and are Team Bill, look away now***

After spewing up blood, his head explodes and he melts down into a blood puddle. Sookie is in shock. Eric is horrified. I am screaming. My cat is running from the room in fright.

Eric tries to comfort Sookie. In the process, he notices movement in the Bill puddle. Bill rises up all bloody and naked and Billith. Is he a god now? Needless to say, Eric and Sookie panic. Eric tells Sookie to run. The credits appear.

HBO’s True Blood Season 5 Finale – Gran’s Pecan Pie Recipe

August 25, 2012

Gran’s Cryin’ Pie

HBO's True Blood Season 5 FinaleSo what is everyone doing for the Season 5 finale for HBO’s True Blood? Are you glad to see the season end, or are you begging for more? And while finale night means a lot of questions are answered, it also means there is a huge gap of time before you get your next new fix of Bon Temps.

Of course, finale night means party night also! This year at my place there will be Tru Blood Plasmapolitans (Tru Blood, Vodka and lime juice) as well as a good dose of crying.  Sookie’s gran’s famous Cryin’ Pie from Season 1, when her gran met an untimely demise and Sookie blubbered her way through the entire thing, is just the comfort food needed for this!

This year, I have attempted to replicate gran’s pie. I think I’ve come pretty darn close. So here is the recipe for you all to enjoy. For a more authentic recipe, omit the maple toffee.

Gran’s Cryin’ Pecan Pie

Gran's Cryin' Pecan Pie

Gran’s cryin’ pie before the maple toffee has been added


Pie Crust

1 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup confectioner’s sugar
113grams cold, unsalted butter, chopped
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Pie Filling

395gram tin sweetened condensed milk
60grams brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsps Bailey’s Irish Cream liqueur (or 1 tsp of vanilla extract)
1/4 cup maple syrup
Pecan halves, to decorate

Maple Toffee

Brown sugar
Maple syrup

  • Add all the pastry ingredients to a food processor and whiz until totally combined.
  • Grease a pie dish and, using your fingers, press out the pastry dough until smooth.
  • Bake in the over at 340 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Add all the pie filling ingredients (except the eggs) to a pan and heat on a medium temperature until the sugar is dissolved.
  • Turn off the heat and allow to cool for five minutes.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, whisking quickly to prevent them cooking unevenly.
  • Turn the heat back on to low and whisk until the mixture thickens into custard.
  • Pour into the pie crust and decorate with pecan halves
  • Firmly pack 1/3 cup brown sugar into measuring cup. Top up with maple syrup to the 1/2 cup mark. Add to a pan along with 1/4 cup of water.
  • Turn on the heat to high and let the mixture boil. Keep checking the toffee by pouring a small amount over the back of a cold metal spoon. As soon as it becomes super sticky, pour the whole lot over the top of your pie.
  • Refrigerate until set and serve with either whipped cream or ice cream
  • Enjoy! (But don’t forget to cry while eating it.)

Ep. 36: Evil Is Going On – Recap

True Blood 3.12 “Evil Is Going On” Review

September 13, 2010

Anna Paquin, True Blood, Sookie StackhouseAnother thrilling finale, another frustratingly long wait for our next fix of True Blood! “Evil Is Going On” saw characters seeking vengeance, facing demons, and searching for direction. We got our first tease of the witches to come, the supernatural element that’s going to be thrown into the melting pot in Season 4 to stir up trouble. We also watched our protagonist disappear right before our eyes. As always, executive producer Alan Ball shook things up in typical style and left us wanting more!

The Coup d’Etat of Russell Edgington

Burning in the sun awaiting death, Russell tries to convince Eric how foolish it is to die over a stupid grudge–it’s not like Eric’s father was a great man or king. Godric appears to Eric as a spirit, urging him to find forgiveness, but Eric resists the words of his beloved Maker. Sookie‘s blood loss sends her on a brief run through fairy land while she’s unconscious. She awakens to Bill‘s face hovering over her and is NOT pleased to see him. She slaps him for betraying her again. “No, I only pretended to betray you to save your life, again.” True enough, but unfortunately Sookie has reached the limits of her tolerance for vampire nonsense. She hears that Eric has gone outside to kill himself and Russell, and pushes past Bill to go save him. With the help of Russell’s taunting words, she gets fired up enough to shoot energy from her hands to break the handcuffs and send Russell flying across the parking lot. She then drags Eric inside and, much to Bill’s dismay, gives him her blood to heal him.

Eric drinks from her wrist and then wipes the blood from his mouth in a way that is charmingly arrogant, before changing his mind about Russell. He wants to bring him inside, not out of forgiveness as Godric wanted, but so that Russell wouldn’t be able to find some sense of peace in the true death. Eric has other plans for the once fearsome vampire. Sookie takes a silver chain to get Russell, now blackened and extra crispy but grateful for her assistance. Eric, Pam, and Bill go to sleep for the day while Sookie watches over Russell. At first she protests, “I’m not babysitting this psycho while you guys take a nap.” But she agrees and even seems to enjoy her power over the fallen king. She toys with him about what it would take for her to make a deal–$5 million dollars, his mansion, etc.–but then she takes the jar of Talbot and pours the last remains of Russell’s lover down the garbage disposal. She laughs almost maniacally as he screams in grief.

Alcide arrives, summoned by Eric for the use of his truck to clear his father’s debt once and for all, and he and Sookie catch up over a beer. He admits that he’s been thinking about her, while Russell plays the part of the peanut gallery:

“I can’t help it that I’m a good guy.”

“Yet every full moon he turns into a wolf and eats his prey.”

“Rabbits and squirrels, not human beings!”


When the vampires wake up, Alcide smiles to hear Sookie’s attitude towards them so altered. She rescinds all their invitations as they leave to do whatever it is they’re going to do to Russell.

The Dark Side of Bill

At a construction site, Eric has devised a cruel punishment for Russell–wrapping him in silver and encasing him in concrete. It won’t kill him, and it won’t hold him forever, but he’ll probably be trapped for a hundred years or so to live in agony. Eric envisions Godric once again, who’s disappointed that his progeny is so full of hatred and unable to make peace. Eric snaps back at the empty air, “This is who I am, Godric. This is what you made!” Up until the end, Russell is making threats at Eric and Bill, swearing that they’ll regret this, although they’re both very happy about it in the moment. Once he disappears under the cement, Bill turns to Eric and offers his hand, seemingly in friendship, but then in a flash snaps the silver handcuff back on Eric’s wrist, tosses him in another pit, and pours concrete on him: “When fate presents one with such a grand opportunity, what else is one to do?” His dark turn doesn’t end there, as he immediately calls up a hit man on Eric’s cell phone and orders the murder of Pam.

Jason: Do the Right Thing

Jason goes to the police station and finds a team from the DEA preparing to raid Hot Shot. Despite Andy‘s warnings, Jason takes Crystal to help her family. Grumpy ol’ Calvin isn’t glad to see them, but at least he listens when Jason says he’s only trying to help these people who are dirty, hungry, and have “obviously got dental problems.” Calvin is in the process of destroying all the V when Felton drops in, clearly high. He shoots a cousin and his father without even blinking, before turning the gun on Jason. He’s going to take the V and Crystal, and ride off in Jason’s truck. With no other options, Jason kisses Crystal and promises to find her, and to take care of her family.

Andy sits in his office, feeling worthless because of the macho DEA leader and curiously examining the V that’s supposed to be in evidence, but thankfully he’s interrupted by Jason being hauled in for impeding the drug bust. Andy scolds him for this, as well as for spilling the truth to Tara, and says he’s wasted any shot he had at becoming something. On the contrary, Jason might finally be turning into a guy worth knowing. Then again, he might be up to his dumb antics soon enough, or he could surprise us and really grow up now that he’s got people depending on him. At the very least, he wisely tells Andy that this is bigger than the two of them, and that “sometimes the right thing to do is the wrong thing.”

Tara’s Ch-ch-changes

After their night together, Sam (who looks mighty cute in the morning, by the way) cooks breakfast for Tara. Casual conversation turns serious when Sam opens up about the secret he’s been hiding for a long time–he’s a shapeshifter. Tara sees this as just another freaky supernatural thing in a long list of them, and while she doesn’t seem to reject Sam’s true identity, she talks about how much she’d like to start her life over. Speaking as someone who’s done it, Sam says she could do that if she wanted to. There’s so much she wants to forget–Maryann, Eggs, Franklin–and the first person she turns to is her mother. She catches Lettie Mae and Reverend Daniels with their pants down. She doesn’t judge her mom but recognizes how deluded she is into thinking that this affair is a good thing and will make everything better in her life: “I’m finally gonna be happy.” Tara just smiles and says she hopes that’s true. I think the encounter makes her see that other people are messed up, too, and if she wants to change, she’ll have to do it herself. The first step: a haircut. She symbolically cuts away all her burdens (and it’s a very nice look for Rutina Wesley). Sookie arrives home and the two best friends share a quiet scene together before hugging and parting for what will probably be longer than either one expects. Tara says she’s just going to see Lafayette, but when she pulls up to Merlotte’s and takes in the familiar sight, she smiles and keeps on driving. Who knows where she’s going, but it’s clear that she needs a fresh start.

Lafayette: See No Evil

Lafayette’s post-V delusions continue. He sees Sam and imagines him, with hands bloody, saying, “Cross me, you’re a dead man.” Then in the kitchen talking to Arlene, Lafayette pictures Rene holding her throat, saying he’s inside her. He calls Jesus in a panic, who comes to Merlotte’s right away to comfort him. His reassurance turns out to be more shocking than Lafayette anticipated: Jesus recalls the first time magic was unleashed in him and he started seeing things before he could control it. He tells Lafayette that he’s a “brujo”–a witch. “You’re a witch who’s a nurse who’s a dude,” Lafayette says in astonishment. Surprisingly, though, he seems to be fine with the news about his boyfriend. It will be interesting to see what role Lafayette has to play in the story of the witches next season.

Jessica & Hoyt: Happily Ever After?

Hoyt drives to work and finds himself on the receiving end of an intervention. Maxine, Summer, and his high school guidance counselor sit him down to discuss what they perceive as his mistakes. Summer reads a note about how sad she is that he chose darkness over life, and Maxine threatens to kick him out of the house and take away his inheritance. Well, Hoyt has already moved out, and she has no money, so she really has no leverage. He’s in love with Jessica, and he’s finally in control of his own life. That night, he surprises Jessica with a house he bought for them, and a marriage proposal. They are really the brightest part of the entire show right now. Jessica says, “I don’t know what I’d do without you.” “Lucky for you,” he replies, “you’ll never have to find out.” As Hoyt picks her up to kiss her, it’s a picture perfect moment of young love, as the camera pans out of the doorway…until it falls on the doll lying in the dark, a reminder of those who would break them apart. I’m not sure what doll-fanatic Summer is capable of, but Maxine showed the lengths to which she would go when she bought a gun with wooden bullets.

No More Mr. Nice Sam

Sam goes to apologize to Terry and Tommy for what he said in anger the previous day. Terry cries with happiness because of all the good things in his life, and the fact that he’s got his friend back. Sam seems a little uncomfortable at the display of emotion (Terry is quirky, but I think we could all stand to view life more from his perspective). Tommy’s house has been cleared out, and so has Sam’s safe full of money. He freaks out again, grabs his gun, and hunts his little brother down. When Sam catches up to him, Tommy cries about how Sam changed his whole life and is throwing him away now. When he finds no sympathy, he picks up the bag of money and stalks off, calling his brother’s bluff on the threatening gun. Sam lifts it and fires with a steady hand. Did he kill Tommy? Probably not, but the point is that he’s not taking people’s crap anymore.

Sookie’s Disillusionment

Bill shows up at Sookie’s to talk. He tells her about Russell and Eric, and how he’s going to kill any other vampire that finds out about what she truly is. They pose too great a danger to her–Russell was proof enough of that when he said her blood was heavenly delicious and that others wouldn’t be able to stop themselves from draining her. Bill explains that even if she doesn’t want to be with him anymore, he’ll always protect her, and will always love her. She almost stops him from leaving, but then Eric busts open the door, covered in concrete (Pam came to the rescue, yay!) and spills the dark secrets Bill has been hiding. He was sent to Bon Temps by Queen Sophie-Anne to find out more about her, and he allowed the Rattrays to beat her so that she would need to drink his blood to heal. Sookie is furious and devastated.  Bill tries to explain that he loves her for who she is NOT what she is and he was not going to “give her up” to Sophie-Anne. He tries to make her understand that although he was sent there by the Queen he DID fall in love with her. She feels like she was manipulated into loving him, and despite the words he has said and continues to say, so she kicks him out of her house and wants nothing more to do with him. It’s not like she runs into Eric’s arms–she screams at him to leave her alone, as well. “I’m sorry to see you suffer like this. I thought you had a right to know.” Eric return back to Fangtasia where Pam has tried to wash the cement out of her hair as she askes Eric if he killed Bill.  Eric simply responds that he created a fate far worst then the true death for him and this punishment will hurt him more.

Back at his own house, Bill opens the door to Sophie-Anne. She can barely contain her excitement about tasting fairy blood and walking in the sun. Bill dashes her hopes, saying he lured her there to kill her. She may be older, “but I have nothing left to lose.” They both rise up into the air, fangs drawn, and fly at each other across the room. Meanwhile, Sookie takes off running into the woods, echoing her first night with Bill, after Gran died. This time, however, she goes to Gran to mourn the loss of Bill. Kneeling in the cemetery by her grandmother’s headstone, she cries over how lost she feels. Claudine appears: “You are not alone. Come with us.” Encircled by faeries, her kind about whom she knows so little, Sookie takes Claudine’s hand, and they all vanish in a burst of light.

It was a well-written episode, to be sure–Alan Ball always delivers great dialogue and a compelling story. The general reaction, however, seems to be somewhat negative, at least from what I’ve seen on Twitter. I think people enjoyed it and got emotional over key moments, but if we’re comparing this finale to the previous 2 years, I think what may have been lacking was the element of excitement and tension to carry us into next year. Especially with the Season 2 finale, “Beyond Here Lies Nothin’,” the characters took down Maryann in grand fashion, after which new, surprising storylines began. Exactly as a good finale should, there was resolution to the season-long journey, as well as a cliffhanger to leave us craving answers.

“Evil Is Going On” seemed to have the resolution part down with very little in the way of shocking twists and new doors being opened. We already knew Sookie was a fairy, so her disappearing with Claudine was more like a continuation of her quest for identity. It will lead to more revelations in Season 4, certainly, but it wasn’t quite on par with “Oh my, someone’s been murdered in the back seat of this car/someone’s taken Bill!” Both of those things seemed to come out of nowhere and leave us awe-struck with disbelief, in a good way.

Come next summer, I’m sure we’ll all be hyped up with anticipation as always. This episode hasn’t lessened my feelings for the show, by any means. As someone who loves True Blood but still wants to examine it critically, I’m just facing this hiatus not quite as full of burning questions as usual. Do you agree or disagree? Share your thoughts in the comments and let’s get the 9 month-long discussion started!

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

September 14, 2009

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.
